Virginia Lawmakers Voted to Destroy American History via Monument Removals

Published

on

On Tuesday, February 11, 2020, state lawmakers approved legislation that would give local Virginia governments the power to take down Confederate monuments in public spaces.

Fueled from the outrage following the 2017 rally in Charlottesville, the Left has been adamant about pursuing policies that would help facilitate monument removals. Now that they have complete control of the General Assembly and the Governor’s office, Democrats are ready to demolish historical monuments in the name of political correctness.

In a vote that largely took place on partisan lines, the Democrat-controlled House and Senate passed bills that would grant cities and counties the power to “remove, relocate, contextualize, cover or alter” monuments on their public spaces.

On Tuesday, largely along party lines, the Democrat-led House and Senate passed measures that would give cities and counties the autonomy to “remove, relocate, contextualize, cover or alter” the monuments in their public spaces.

Democrat Delegate Delores McQuinn sponsored the House bill and said it would allow local communities decide “how they want to memorialize history, whether it’s right in your face or they want to memorialize it in another way.”

The bills’ opponents compared Confederate monument removal to erasing history and have expressed concerns that the legislation could lead to a slippery slope of other removals of monuments that commemorate controversial conflicts such as the Vietnam War.

“I do not believe this will end well,” declared Republican Delegate Charles Poindexter, who believes that the bill sent a “tough message” to veterans or dead veteran’s families.

This is another theater of the culture war that must be fought whole-heartedly.

The Left would like nothing more than to strip America of its history and create a deracinated society where people mindlessly consume and are at the whims of politically correct thought policers.

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.
