Weeks Ago The George Washington Bust at George Washington University was Toppled, University Officials Kept Quiet

Published

Virginia Copeland of Campus Reform reported on several acts of vandalism that swept across Washington, D.C. in the last few weeks.

One of the most notable was the desecration of a bust of George Washington, America’s first president. According to the GW Hatchet, six incidents related to protests took place on campus from late May to early June. Conservative activist Kara Zuckus went on Twitter to highlight how Washington’s bust on the campus of George Washington University in downtown Washington, D.C. disappeared.

This incident went unnoticed, especially by GW officials, for several weeks.

“A stunning image– looks like GW may have removed George Washington’s head to protect it from riots in DC. Truly disconcerting times,” Zupkus tweeted on June 2. At the time of this tweet, it was not clear whether the university had taken down the bust out of fear that it might get damaged by agitators or if it had already received damage during the riots.

Later on, Zuckus tweeted, saying that the bust was “apparently” toppled.

The campus newspaper published a campus crime log, which detailed the vandalization of the Washington bust.

“A GWPD officer found the head of a George Washington statue removed from a stand near the Greek Townhouses at the corner of 23rd and F streets. The head was found laying at the base of the stand. GWPD called Facilities Services following the discovery,” the log recounted.

Zupkus then tweeted on June 23, “Today, @JonathanTurley confirmed my fears: the GW statue was toppled by rioters, and @GWtweets, in an attempt to sweep the incident under the rug, has failed to release a statement THREE weeks later. https://jonathanturley.org/2020/06/23/pro

So far, GWPD has found no suspects or witnesses during investigations to determine who was behind the desecration of the George Washington bust.

Universities, which are virtual appendages of the Left, have been largely complicit in the radicalization of these movements.

If they had a scintilla of decency, they would be standing up to these vandals and cracking down on acts of vandalization

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.
