You Know Virtue Signaling Corporations are Losing When…

This is one of those little insignificant issues that highlights some bigger more significant stuff.

Left-wing moonbats will never admit when they are losing; actually, they’ll hide it.   Corporate moonbats also try to hide their defeat, particularly those idiots who cut off half of their customer base to virtue-signal to their preferred moonbat audience.

However, the market bottom-line is the overriding ‘end’ when the moonbattery ‘means’, bite them in the assets.  Cue the Audio/Visual demonstration:

.

This advertisement actually ran during the Tucker Carlson program tonight. Think about that? Not only did the marketing team need to target an audience the Moonbats abhor, Fox News, they also paid the highest ad rates to run on the #1 prime-time Fox show.

    “Have you ever killed anybody before”
    “Yes. I’ve killed so many that I just stopped counting after awhile.”

    Careful what you ask. You might not like the answer….

      Someone once asked a soldier, “What do you feel when you kill someone?”
      His answer, “Recoil.”
      Actually not so much of that with an M-16, if I remember correctly.

      This old vet doesn’t buy StarSCHMUCKS.

        I remember this story, and I’m pretty sure it was an interview of a sniper by some snowflake lib reporter. (how do you feeeeelll…)
        So, most likely something a great deal stiffer than the .223/5.56 NATO of an M-16/M-4, like .50 BMG or .338 Lapua.
        Thanks for your service!

    I think this ad is disgraceful. They really have a lot of nerve to run something like that and think people would fall for it. I wouldn’t set foot in a starbucks or buy any products from them. In addition to their political and social stance, I despise their pseudo-cool, leftist superior attitude. Whenever I see people sitting at the tables and counters or the people behind the counters in a starbucks, I could just picture those same people as antifa demonstrators, bernie sanders supporters, wearing “I’m with her” buttons or those pink hats.

      To me, whenever a business model concentrates on virtue singling of various types instead of how good their product and/or service is tells me that I’m going to over pay for what I’ll receive and I’ll try to avoid them.

      This ad seems to “OUT” or publicly identify ex-Military Personnel and their families so that they can later be harassed or somehow targeted — under the guise of Starbucks wishing to “show support” for them.

      And the questions and the answers given by the actors playing the roles of Starbucks employees are giving are inane.

          That’s an astute point you make.

          This kind of subversion is why the Left has mainstreamed all kinds of perversions and terrorism making it seem normal here in the U.S.A.

          The message APPEARS to be ‘we are so nice and want to understand you and hire you’ but anybody with a few unindoctrinated brain cells can see right away Starbucks’ laughable, fake,condescending attempt to hide their antifa, sharia loving, Marxist philosophy.

      TMR777, I agree with you 110%. Before that jackass of a CEO who runs Scumbucks opened his mouth, several members of my family would patronize them. Not anymore, not since that jackwagon ran his mouth standing up for non-citizens instead of U.S. Citizens, the ones who made Scumbucks what it is.

      I feel bad for the franchise owners, as this has obviously hurt their bottom line. However, they should all band together and sue the crap out of corporate for not protecting the brand. Shareholders should do the same as the CEO should have stayed Apolitical to protect shareholder value as well as the brand.

      As I U.S. Army Vet, let me just say that I’m offended that Scumbucks is using my fellow Veterans for nothing more than damage control because of an idiot CEO. Not acceptable, EVER.

    They lost me with their statement that fewer Americans, today, know vets. If you think about the wars this country has been in, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Gulf Storm, and the last seventeen years of war, they can actually state this with a straight face?

    Recently, I drove rather than flew on my annual 1000+ mile trek. The number of highway memorials to local fallen vets almost brought me to tears.

    This commercial is a travesty on so many levels. These people know vets, they just don’t see them.

        I live in the Seattle metro area (home of Starbucks) and many of my friends work at very well paid jobs in Starbucks management. Trust me, from Starbucks corporate eyes, they DO NOT KNOW VETERANS. They have no clue about the sacrifices their countrymen have made and they live in a very, very liberal, well-to-do bubble that has insulated them from the rest of America. However, they are more than happy to give you their opinion because they feel they are smarter and morally superior than you. I see such a separation between the ultra-liberal population and the average American (avg American meaning Democrat, Republican, Independent working stiff), that I don’t see the 2 groups ever coming together. One group will end up beating the other. I pray the average American wins this cultural war going on in the US.

Not a one of us has ever gone back into a Starbucks and we won’t. Yet, what might happen if they put MAGA and a huge American flag on their cups? We just might. But, the chances of that happening are not great at all.

    Starbucks is only airing this on FoxNews because we have voted with our wallets during and post-election. No one wants to be lectured to by businesses or corporation CEOs. They are taking a bottom line hit and they know it, thus this tv commercial that I just laughed at and said “really?” with my retired AF husband. I haven’t visited Starbucks with my money in more than a year.

    Hollywood is on the same band as HRC, trying to figure out why they had a crappy summer at the box office. Today’s excuse is Rotten Tomatoes. Same scenario they don’t understand we don’t want to be lectured to for defending our country. Voting with the wallet is my only option, so I am gladly boycotting services and companies who think they have the right to tell me how to vote and why they think I should care about their political opinions.

    A couple of observations

    (1) Starbucks is mediocre coffee at an expensive price.
    (2) Starbucks is driven by trend, not by quality of product.
    (3) If I were a shareholder, I would sue them.
    (4) The environment is ripe for a competitor to take them out.

    Now, for a plug. If you want a good coffee treat this holiday season, I highly recommend giving a try some of the best coffee in the world from a Kona coffee plantation that has been in my family since 1850. It is extremely expensive ($40-$50 / lb), but you simply cannot get a better coffee.
