|You're right to be angry. These cup designs are just Starbucks' |
way of saying that they hate you and everything you stand for.
|The magic of social media is how it|
brings us together in our common hatred.
"Now that beloved diversity has blown up in our faces, the libs @Starbucks have begun shilling for unity. lol,,, how typical"
-@BordongaPhillip, noted jerk
|"Curse those do-gooders and their|
wretched desire to get along!"
Like...seriously? Is he Skeletor? What his beef with positive messages about community and coming together in common love of overly sweet, somewhat burnt-tasting coffee? Look, I don't care about Starbucks, I really don't, but diversity isn't some liberal ploy designed to upset people like @BordongaPhillip, it's a fact of living in America. People are diverse and all Ota was trying to do with the stupid cup is remind people that in all the ways that matter, we're all the same; drawn with the same line, if you will and that maybe we should focus a little more on what binds us rather than what divides us.
|Also, hot rock? I don't want to tell|
her how to vent her irrational anger, but
I think this was as missed opportunity.
And this other jerk:
"@Starbucks Screw you. My coffee should NOT (and does NOT) come with political brainwashing. I dropped @Starbucks like a hot rock."
-@RadioAnna, another jerk
I'm not sure saying how neat it would be if everyone got along is really the same thing as political brainwashing.
And again, please don't think that this is some sort of defense of a massive, international coffee chain so cruel and unfeeling as to offer pumpkin spice and then yank it away just as we're getting used to it. My beef is with the ridiculous anger over what should be a universal message of unity and not being dicks to each other. I mean, what kind of person speaks out against everyone getting along?
|I mean other than the guy running on a platform of disunity,|
anger and blind hatred. Other than him, who does that?
