Today is a very sad day for progressives everywhere. We all worked so hard to invent this scandal involving Starbucks’ red coffee cups, but George Soros’ master plan to bring down all of Christianity once and for all has been spoiled by some unwed mom in Alaska!

Okay, none of that first paragraph is true… I’m just trying to bait the right-wing, as always. But on Monday, Bristol Palin suggested (in a poorly-written blog post) that the Starbucks red cup scandal is somehow a leftist conspiracy to “make Christians look stupid,” and that conservatives shouldn’t fall into our evil liberal trap.

So what exactly is this “red cup” scandal, anyway? Starbucks just unveiled their new coffee cups for the holiday season; solid “Christmas red” with a Starbucks logo in the center. Starbucks previously featured holiday and/ or winter themes on the cups as well, like snowflakes and whatnot. Naturally, this has led many of the right to claim Starbucks is waging a “war on Christmas,” with right-wing media pundits taking to the airwaves, as well as conservatives in general ranting all across social media.

Though Bristol Palin hasn’t apparently seen any of this raging going on; she says Christians aren’t really as upset about the cups as the evil lamestream media wants everyone to think they are:

The mainstream media and the Left love their outrage machine where they claim the world is ending because any number of tiny people have expressed hurt feelings on social media. So now, they’re taking a tiny fraction of people’s response and attributing it to all conservative Christians.

And that’s just the tip of the mocha-flavored iceberg, because Bristol Palin goes on to further claim that the red cup controversy is actually just a part of a secret left-wing plot to… well… let’s just take a peek into the horse’s mouth.

Do not buy in to the media hype surrounding this story!!  It is just another attempt by the LEFT to make Christians look stupid

Trust me Bristol Palin, if the left-wing were as organized as you think we are, we most certainly wouldn’t have Republican House and Senate majorities right now, and America would’ve done away with guns several decades ago.
