At first glance, the Starbucks video looks bad. There’s still much we don’t know. But closing all its stores for re-education may be a bit of an overreaction. And like most leftist protests that start with “Maybe they have a point,” it quickly turned into “They’ve gone full crazy, prepare the rubber rooms.” It goes from a protest over one relevant thing to a protest over everything liberals hate about everything else at the speed of a hashtag. Maybe get the straight jackets prepped.
This Tamika Mallory tweet is a perfect example.

Who is she, you ask?

That was quick. We’ve gone from being upset about two black men having the cops called on them by a Starbucks’ employee, to being upset over Starbucks working with a Jewish advocacy group to help them navigate their PR mess. The same group which points out the anti-semitism of Women’s March organizers (see JUSTICE: Anti-Israel Terrorist Who Led Women’s March to be Deported and Jake Tapper Points Out Leftists’ Hypocritical Friendship With Louis Farrakhan). I think we’d call this a “conflict of interest” for Tamika.
All of this happening over two incidents in two different Starbucks, the details of which we still don’t know.
