Patriot Retort: There’s a scene in the old Showtime series “The Tudors” where the King of France – donning sackcloth and stripped of his royal adornments – makes the pilgrimage to Rome.
This was done to show that even the most high were subjects to the Church – lowly penitents in need of absolution.
Well, Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson is pretty much doing the same thing — crawling on his hands and knees to beg forgiveness.
Except, he isn’t a penitent of the Catholic Church but rather a penitent in the Church of Social Justice.
After an employee at a Philadelphia Starbucks called the police on two men who weren’t ordering anything, Johnson immediately issued his mea culpa. But it wasn’t enough.
It’s never enough.
So today, appearing on “Good Morning America” Johnson offered more.
He said, “…I’d say there’s training, more training that we’re going to do with our store managers, not only around the guidelines but training around unconscious bias.”
“Unconscious bias.” Good grief.
Bow and scrape all you like, Kevin.
But no matter how penitent you are, the Church of Social Justice will never forgive.
After all, despite your mea culpa over the weekend, they still protested outside of that Starbucks. And they still are pushing for a boycott. MORE HERE
