WATCH: Elizabeth Warren Left Speechless As Black Protestors Demand School Choice

Published

on

While delivering a speech at Clark Atlanta University, protestors disrupted 2020 presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren.

During this speech, Warren was honoring the legacy of black women protesters.

“The fighters I want to talk about tonight are Black women,” Warren said. “As a white woman, I will never fully understand the discrimination, pain, and harm that black Americans have experienced just because of the color of their skin.”

30 minutes into the speech, a group of protesters crashed the speech.

The group started loudly yelling “Our voice, our choice!”

However, Warren’s supporters quickly came to her defense by chanting her name louder in order to drown out the protester’s chants.

The Massachusetts senator tried to carry out her speech despite the protesters making noise.

“I’m not here tonight to tell you about a painful history that Black Americans experienced and know all too well. I am here today for a different reason,” she added while the hecklers continued disrupting her speech.

The protesters started to chat again, with the crowd responding again with chants of “Warren, Warren!”

Warren tried to calm down the protesters saying “Alright.”

But that was not enough to keep the protestors from chanting.

The crowd then made a stronger response “Let her speak! Let her speak!”

Warren made another attempt to continue her speech, saying “We’re good.”

The Massachusetts senator was able to continue her speech for the time being.

However, the protesters were never satisfied, which prompted Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley to intervene on Warren’s behalf.

“I want to say something – no one is here to quiet you, least of all this black woman who knows what it is when people try to put me in a corner and tell me to be silent,” Pressley stated. “You are welcome here.”

Pressley continued:

The senator is here to talk about the contributions fighters like you have made to history. So, in this moment … there are many people who do not know this story, because we have been rendered a historical footnote in history. So, I am going to appeal to you to not dishonor that history. We are grateful for your activism and your voice, and we would love to convene after this about the issue that you are here to stoke our consciousness about. But when these women have been ignored this long, this is their moment and we are going to hear the story.

The speech continued.

The group who interrupted Warren’s speech was the Powerful Parent Network.

PPN is an activist group that represents the interests of low-income and minority parents across America.

In a news release, the group stated that they attended Warren’s speech in order to send her a “message that she has it wrong about school choice and education policy.”

Elizabeth Warren is the presidential candidate who has taken the strongest stance against choice and high quality public charter schools,” the group said. “But these parents will send a clear message: black and brown families want more educational choice and more quality public schools– not less!”

BLP has reported how Warren has faced increasing pressure from school choice proponents about her opposition to charter schools.

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.
