NYC’s Nanny State Strikes Again, This Time They Are Coming For Hamburgers and Hot Dogs

Published

According to Breitbart News, New York City’s recently passed “Green New Deal” will reduce the amount of red meat served in city-run facilities by half.

This program is being conducted in the name of battling climate change.

This “Green New Deal” is different from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s proposal at the federal level.

This local Green New Deal will slowly reduce the purchase of red meat in public schools, hospitals, and correctional facilities by 2040. The end goal is to cut meat purchases by 50 percent. The total costs of this program are estimated to be around $14 billion.

Through its passage of this iteration of the Green New Deal, New York is the first city in the world to enact this kind of measure.

The municipal Green New Deal comes right after New York City’s announcement to expand “Meatless Monday” to all public schools in the area starting in the 2019-2020 school year.

Despite being separate legislation from Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal, both proposals share an emphasis on reducing meat consumption.

A divided Congress and a Republican controlled White House makes it next to impossible to pass the Green New Deal at the federal level for the time being.

As a result, climate change alarmists are now taking a page from the gun control movement’s playbook.

They recognize that they can’t get their legislation passed at the federal level, so they’ll work from the bottom up in municipalities and state legislatures.

However, the conversation on the Green New Deal is far from finished.

BLP covered Robert Francis ‘Beto’ O’ Rourke’s recent endorsement of the Green New Deal, in which he urged Americans to make sacrifices that were reminiscent to those of WWII.

As the Democratic Party goes further Left, the Green New Deal will likely be a major litmus test issue for future candidates.

Starbucks Barista FIRED After Refusing to Wear “Pride” T-Shirt for Religious Reasons, According to Lawsuit

She is a Christian and was apparently told by her manager that she didn’t have to wear it.

A former Starbucks barista is filing an unlawful discrimination lawsuit against the coffee giant, claiming they fired her for refusing to wear a “Pride” t-shirt that violated her Christian religious convictions.

Betsy Fresse started working as a barista in December 2015. After transferring to a Glen Ridge, New Jersey, store in early 2019, managers apparently “assured” her that her Christian faith wouldn’t be an issue.

Then in June 2019, she noticed a box of Pride shirts on a desk and asked if they’d make her wear one. Her store manager said she wouldn’t have to, but two months later she found herself out of a job after being terminated by a district manager.

A notice of separation claims that Fresse was fired for violating Starbucks’ “core values.” It specifically mentions an incident where she said her colleagues “need Jesus” when given the “Pride” shirt.

Starbucks maintains that “no part of our dress code requires partners to wear any approved items that they have not personally selected” and that Fresse’s claims are “without merit,” in a comment to the New York Post.

So Starbucks denies that she was fired for not wearing the shirt, yet their notice of separation appears to claim that they fired her for something she said about Jesus. Not a good look either way.

Fresse is seeking backpay, punitive damages, money to cover the cost of an attorney, and a permanent injunction that prevents Starbucks from “failing to accommodate […] sincerely held religious beliefs.”

Starbucks has long been a major player in the world of Woke Capital. Back in February Big League Politics reported on how the British branch of Starbucks was raising money for a pro-transgender lobbying group:

The U.K. branch of Starbucks is raising money to push for the chemical castration and surgical mutilation of children.

Nathanael Blake at The Federalist reported that the multinational titan is selling special mermaid-shaped cookies to help the pro-transgender lobbying group Mermaids. Curiously, the group’s founder took her underage son to Thailand to undergo a castration procedure.

Blake correctly observed “That Starbucks is supporting this group illustrates how thoroughly radicals have conquered both the LGBT movement and corporate culture.”

He also called attention to how “In a few years the fight has shifted from government recognition of same-sex relationships as legal marriages to mastectomies, sterilization, and castration for children.”

Here’s hoping that Betsy Fresse is successful in her lawsuit.
