Extortion is a crime and Marxism will destroy our Capitalist system but the media is silent on yet another Marxist movement that extorts money from US businesses.
You may not have heard about the Marxist battle to extort money from fast food restaurants and supermarkets that has been going on for more than nine years and is picking up steam under our current administration.
First for a little history.
A UN-Marxist organization called the Coalition of Immokalee Workers (CIW) has pushed to extort money from fast food restaurants and supermarkets under a sham program called the Fair Food program to give “enslaved” farm workers a little bit more money in their paychecks.
They are demanding money for tomato growers because of Marxist views that farmworkers, the foundation of our fresh food industry, are abused and robbed of wages. The Marxists say the workers are enslaved, beaten and murdered on a regular basis, which is of course not true.
According to the UN Marxist-communists, there is a human cost in our food supply and there is a complicity of large buyers of produce like fast food and supermarkets. Fast food is big, but supermarkets are bigger – earning $4 trillion globally, they say without discussing the extremely high overhead. Over the past 3 decades they further claim these buyers have drained revenue from their supply chain leaving farmworkers in poverty and forced to work under subhuman conditions. Yet many take no responsibility for this, the anti-Capitalists claim.
Marxists claim there is a limited supply of money from which everyone draws and the evil rich are taking more than their fair share.
Marxism can’t grow revenue but Capitalism can. There is no limit to the amount of revenue that can be put into the system if people are allowed to be entrepreneurial and creative.
Fast forward to Ethel Kennedy, wife of the late Attorney General and founder of the leftist Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice & Human Rights, a social justice organization.
Led by Ethel Kennedy, The Ethel Kennedy Group has joined with the CIW to demand a penny-pre-pound payments to increase income for Florida tomato pickers.
A total of 14 major retailers are participating in what this extortion under the legal-sounding name, Fair Food Program (FFP), including Burger King, McDonalds, Subway and Taco Bell – they caved to communist extortionists. Publix, Kroger and Wendy’s have not as yet so the pressure is increasing.
“Fair” to these ‘protesters’ is Marxist “fair” as in social justice.
The Marxists have been boycotting and arranging marches, mostly with young illegal aliens who call themselves the Student/Farmworker Alliance. They hold annual Encuentro conferences in Immokalee and train and indoctrinate these young protesters.
They have threatened stores not participating in the extortion with more of these protests.
This past weekend, the thugs went to the home of Wendy’s chairman. Hundreds of protesters, many farmworkers, led by Ethel Kennedy, descended near the home of the chairman to bully Wendy’s into paying the penny-per-pound extortion.
The Palm Beach Post reports the Coalition of Immokalee Workers’ march was peaceful Saturday.
A federal judge had ruled the coalition could use loudspeakers but said marchers must remain on the sidewalk. Kennedy, the 87-year-old widow of Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, led the charge onto the barrier island where protesters held signs to boycott the chain.
No one is talking about the fact that this is a crime. It’s extortion. No one is talking about the fact that these are Marxists tied to the UN. Finally, the real danger is that it isn’t about these workers and the teeny increase it will give them in salary, if they get any increase at all after the intermediaries grab their share. What it is about is infection of Marxist ideology into our Capitalist system.
How is this not extortion by communists?
