Starbucks to Close 150 Stores as Sales Slide

Published

on

A coffee giant that recently closed for an entire day to engage its employees  in mandatory “bias training”  is closing 150 stores due to a slide in sales.

“Our growth has slowed a bit,” said Kevin Johnson, Starbucks CEO. “I expect better, I think our shareholders deserve better, and we’re committed to address that.”

But it is tough to sell coffee when your stores are closed. Starbucks faced a wave of public outrage after two men were arrested at a Philadelphia store after refusing to leave when asked by staff. The men had not purchased an item.

Johnson acknowledged that closing 8,000 stores for a full day did indeed hurt sales this quarter.

Big League Politics reported:

In a move that is sure to enrage shareholders, Starbucks is closing all of its company-owned stores on May 29 to teach it employees “racial bias training.”

“We’re taking a hard look at who we are as a company, said the company on Twitter. “We’re ashamed & recognize that racial bias is a problem we must address.”

According to Bloomberg, the company plans to close stores in densely populated metro areas where competition is strong, while focusing on dominating the suburbs.

“The competitive environment has really become a lot stronger in the U.S. and a lot of that is the fast-food chains really improving the quality and breadth of their offerings in terms of hot beverages and breakfast,” said Bloomberg analyst Jennifer Bartashus.

Wikipedia’s Founder is Creating New Free Speech Competitor to Website, Citing Leftist Domination

Larry Sanger is the original creator of Wikipedia.

The man who originally created online encyclopedia Wikipedia is pledging to create a new platform to replace it, citing Wikipedia’s left-wing bias.

Larry Sanger, who co-founded Wikipedia in 2001 before leaving the project, is describing his Encyclosphere as a networked aggregation of existing and new encyclopedia content, which will be distinguished from the colorful and unverified content slung onto Wikipedia by the site’s user base. Sanger envisions millions of people writing and submitting encyclopedia entries, which can be rated and judged for accuracy by their readers themselves, rather than the “arrogant and controlling oligarchy” Sanger maintains is running Wikipedia.

Sanger admitted that Wikipedia had become “badly biased” last year, citing the use of political propaganda by establishment editors on the site who consistently lock down articles pertaining to publicly discussed topics and figures.

Sanger cited pages documenting the history of the Soviet Union as an example of Wikipedia bias in remarks provided to Just the News on Friday. He’s previously cited Wikipedia pages for Donald Trump and Jesus Christ as examples of the thick leftist bias on the platform, disregarding Wikipedia’s old “no point of view” policy in favor of content that serves as little more than left-wing hitpieces.

Left-wing operatives, at times paid by powerful interests, use Wikipedia’s seniority system to defame conservatives and protect the reputations of their own progressive and liberal daddies. Allegations of child grooming and wide-ranging sexual harassment were hidden from the page of Lincoln Project pedophile John Weaver, with leftist editors claiming the information wasn’t relevant.

Wikipedia may very well be the most compromised and deceptive Big Tech platform present on the internet, using faux status as a neutral encyclopedia to defame conservatives and right-wingers. More disturbingly, Wikipedia has been used to distort historical events and culture, advancing the philosophy of hate under the guise of the 13th most popular website on the internet.

Sanger’s project may present a desperately needed alternative, and may recapture the Internet’s original spirit of free expression and the flow of information.
