Fast Food Chain Bans BLM Pins for Employees, But Later Reversed Course. Here’s Why.

Published

on

A Burgerville restaurant in Portland, Oregon has reversed course, allowing employees to now wear buttons and pins in support of Black Lives Matter and the “Abolish ICE” movement.

The establishment originally banned the pins, going so far as to send workers home without pay for wearing the buttons during their shifts.

Burgerville has 42 locations through out Oregon and Washington. Their most noted claim to fame concerned their creation of the first fast-food worker’s union.

The employees said that they refused to comply with the policy because they believed that such suppression was “white supremacist.”

A posting on the Burgerville Workers Union described the policy and the employee response. A portion of the post stated, “When bosses tell workers they are not allowed to support Black Lives Matter or to stand with undocumented immigrants, they are siding with white supremacy. There are black and undocumented Burgerville workers, and as of today, Burgerville’s official policy is that their lives and safety are too ‘political’ for the company.”

“Unions are about more than just wages and benefits,” the post added. “White supremacy is a workplace issue. Sexism and misogyny are workplace issues. Fascism is a workplace issue. And if unions are about making a fairer and more just workplace, then that means fighting all of those forces on the job as well.”

Oh but the liberal insanity this company is indulging in gets worse from there. They are also apparently allowing workers to place their preferred gender pronouns on their name tags.

The Burgerville worker’s union is demanding, yes DEMANDING, the company offer up an “official apology” to the crew for “forcing them to decide between their jobs and supporting the fight against white supremacy.”

This, folks, is the kind of nuttiness running rampant in America thanks to the wide spread indoctrination of children in public schools by progressive ideologues.

Russia Completely Censors Navalny News After USA Issues Threat

Is Putin hiding Navalny to avoid further condemnation from the US?

Published

As Vladimir Putin continues to work up his reputation as the world’s most despicable and despotic leader, it appears as though he does have some jitters when it comes to dealing with the mighty USA. Over the course of the last several weeks, the two superpowers have exchanged a number of insults and threats, centered around any number of issues – all of which are of Putin’s own doing. First, US President Joe Biden went ahead and told the world that he believed Putin to be “a killer” – a statement that reportedly irked Putin to no end.  And then there were the hack attacks against the United States that saw Biden slap a number of hefty sanctions on Moscow. Now, as anti-Putin journalist Alexei Navalny continues a slow and agonizing march toward death at a Russian prison camp hospital, Biden and the US government have warned Putin that his demise could brings a world of pain to the Kremlin. This has pushed Putin to enact a total blackout of news on Navalny’s condition. Russian state TV has imposed a virtual blackout on coverage on Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny amid claims he could die at “any minute” in a prison hospital. The imprisoned 44-year-old, a prominent critic of President Vladimir Putin, has been on hunger strike and there are planned protests in 77 cities as a show of support. The protests on Wednesday will coincide with Vladimir Putin’s key annual state of the nation address to parliament. The Russian Government have said the protests are illegal. Putin and Biden had briefly considered a summit meeting to discuss this latest dissonance, but there is no telling where those negations stand after this latest malfeasance by the Russian government.
