Listen: Howard Schultz, Democrats And Starbucks discussed on The Drive Home with Jillian Barberie and John Phillips
"Eight four four fifty one bible as we say, the Democrats the democratic candidates for twenty twenty are being outflanked by their own base. And so virtually every democratic candidate is now being dragged through the mud for saying some quasi moderate things. So for example, Cory Booker the other day who Spartacus spe very. Very brave person. Spartacus he said something not terrible on race. And he is just being ripped up and down over at Hughes into Moines. And he was specifically asked about the Virginia situation with people who dressed up as as Michael Jackson or rappers back in one thousand nine hundred and here's booker's answer. Which by the way for the record is actually a pretty good answer. Conversation. Offensive crouch, sometimes want to tell the truth about something fear. We're speaking or. People to tell the truth we all of us. Why gay street we gotta. Took steady grace to each other. So we can have honest competition. And people are angry at him for saying this for him saying we need to have grace with each other. And maybe acknowledged that some people have been ignorance in the past about their activities. And maybe we expanded send forgiveness people are angry at him about this. The democratic base is to pull even for the most radical members of the Democratic Party. But that's only part of the democratic base. And this is why you split. This is why you end up with a situation where every democratic candidate is endorsing the green new deal that Democrats are scared to death will be brought to the floor of the Senate for a vote. That is why. And it's also why you're seeing some of the most pandering ridiculous moves by democratic candidates. So Elizabeth Warren, the non native American Senator from Massachusetts. She actually showed up on Tuesday to do her professional pandering. According to CNN, she showed up on Tuesday, which means unappealing unannounced appearance at a lunch on the sidelines of a major native American conference in Washington, which again, bad form, a white people taking over native American territory that is not a good thing. Elizabeth her marks came amid continued scrutiny of the massachu-. Senators pass claims native ancestry. According to details provided by a campaign aide after Warren's appearance at the national Indian women's lunch honor luncheon, she introduced womp tribe of gay head Akina, chairwoman, Cheryl, Cheryl, Andrews, Malta's, a tribal leader and former senior adviser to the assistant secretary of Indian affairs during the Obama administration. The Senator was introduced by New Mexico Representative Helen is one of the first two native American women elected to congress last year. Warren's did not address or make any mention of the controversy surrounding her claims native American heritage in aid told CNN, including an attempt to prove her ancestry with DNA tests last year apparently in her introduction. She said, whether it's building coalitions among allies or reaching across the bridge divides, Cheryl is masterful at persuading public policy makers to do what's right for native communities. So Elizabeth Warren because she has to keep pandering to the intersectional crap. She cannot stop herself from putting her hand directly on the stove. She is just going to keep going back to that abscessed tooth and sticking her tongue in it over and over and over and then she's she's. Very bad at this game. And she's not going to be forgiven to it because for forgiveness is not an aspect of the Democratic Left. There is no forgiveness for the democratic last. There's convenience Ralph northern we'll be left as governor Virginia out of convenience, Justin. Fairfax may survive as Lieutenant governor of Virginia out of Mira convenience. The democratic base is radical, and they are vicious and Howard Schultz is finding that out to the former Starbucks CEO, he's doing his national campaign, and he got himself in all sorts of trouble yesterday. Because again, he said some stuff that the democratic base does not want to hear one of the things he said is that he does not actually see color. Right. And you're not allowed to say this. You're not allowed to say that you don't see color in the modern United States to the democratic base. You're supposed to say I see color because I'm a white person and white people see color and white people are racist. That's what you're supposed to say. Here's Howard Schultz saying the opposite. This is going to alienate the democratic base. It was a terrible moment for the company. It's not something that we're gonna forget. And it's something that we learned a great deal from and we're still learning about and I would just say as somebody who up in a very diverse background as a young boy in the projects. I didn't see color as a young boy. And I honestly don't see color now. Oh, you're not allowed to say that everybody sees color Howard Schultz, how terrible for Howard Schultz to say this. He's got an enormous blowback from the left for saying that he is colorblind and tries not to see color. He's he's getting ripped up and down for by the way, the fact that he even acknowledges that something bad happened in Philadelphia is in and of itself joke. I've talked to people who went down to that Philadelphia. Starbucks. Not only are there cameras in the Philadelphia, Starbucks that could have shed light. Light on the situation and then Starbucks did not release the tape because they had already jumped on the bandwagon. But the woman if you recall, the Starbucks situation from several months ago, what happened is that two black men went into a Starbucks there repeatedly to buy something if they wanted to use the restroom they barely sat there for hours. And then when the police were called they refused to leave the restaurant. They just stood there and basically asked to be arrested as though this were a civil rights sit at a Starbucks in Philadelphia a city, which is plurality black as though no one's ever seen a black person in Philadelphia before it turns out that the woman behind the counter who was slandered as racist is according to people who know her a far left LGBTQ activist, and she was slandered as racist or all of this to Howard Schultz. Not only is not wrong about any other stuff. Howard Schultz is actually bending over backwards to pretend that this was a situation at the Philadelphia starbuck, Pat Howard Schultz says reasonable things from time to time makes him completely unpalatable to Democrats and puts him directly in their in their crosshairs surprised. By the blowback back some of it hostile with let take you by surprise. And we were not surprised by the extent of it has taken us back a bit. But I think anytime you try and go against the grain and take the road, less traveled and challenge the status quo, and actually that's something. I've been doing my whole life, but not not at this level. Clearly, we're gonna have some resistant. So we expected it perhaps not as acute as well. I mean, frankly, I'm shocked at Howard Schultz finds himself taken aback at the radicalism of his own political side of the aisle they've been radical for a long time. Now, I said earlier, the Democrats have no forgiveness for people who have violated their standards. But this is exactly the point. You can always tell what violates democratic standards by the standard forgiveness. They use. So Democrats have no standard of forgiveness when it comes to things that they perceive of as anti-black, even if they are not in fact, anti-black, they have no they have no forgiveness for stuff that is perceived as anti gay, Christian churches. No forgive. Us there. No grace there. But you can always tell what their standards are by where they are willing to apply forgiveness coming up. We've made clear that Democrats are unwilling to forgive things that violate their."
