SEATTLE, WA – We wonder how many police officers use Apple’s iPhone. How many police agencies utilize Apple’s iPad? How many police families use Mac Books?
We would venture to guess probably a lot.
One needs to wonder then what Apple was thinking on “blackout” Tuesday, when they froze the browse feature on Apple Music, and replaced it with a selection of Motown hits…oh, never mind.
Apple, one of those hip, “woke” companies put out a play list with a wonderful little ditty called “Fuck Da Police.” Talk about trying to build bridges.
Apple decided to join in with the other woke social media companies and join in on #BlackoutTuesday.
This was intended for these companies and their users to post a black square as their profile picture on media companies (because clearly they are no longer “platforms) in solidarity with the “rioters,” er protesters across the country.
The message users were hit with when they attempted to go onto Apple Music, which by the way is a paid site, read as follows:
“In steadfast support of the Black voices that define music, creativity, and culture we use ours. This moment calls upon us all to speak and act against racism and injustice of all kinds. We stand in solidarity with Black communities everywhere. #TheShowMustBePaused #BlackLIvesMatter.”
So of course, that got us to wondering. When is Apple going to join in and promote something called, say “#BlueFriday” in support of law enforcement officers? They could force people to listen to a selection of patriotic songs or something along those lines?
This of course would be in honor of the police officer in Las Vegas who was shot in the head Monday night by a “peaceful” protester.
Or maybe for the officer in New York City who was run down by a coward in a car?
Maybe the officers in Buffalo, New York who were mowed down by another “peaceful” protester?
The play list included hits such as “Freedom” by cop-hater Beyonce, “We The People” by some group called A Tribe Called Quest. And of course, “F**K tha Police” by something called N.W.A. Surprisingly, they didn’t dig up the Ice-T classic, Cop Killer.
Let’s examine the lyrics from the classic F**K tha Police:
“Beat a police out of shape. And when I’m finished bring the yellow tape. To tape off the scene of the slaughter,” as well as, “Punk police are afraid of me! Huh, a young nigga on the warpath. And when I’m finished it’s gonna be a bloodbath. Of cops, dyin’ in L.A.”
Sweet. The interesting thing about a company such as Apple is that while they preach about “justice,” they are a sellout to China. You remember China of course.
Aside from providing what amounts to slave labor to manufacture their electronics, China also gave us that little virus we’ve been dealing with for nearly four months.
Oh yeah, China is also the country that is oppressing protesters in Hong Kong, and Apple helped facilitate that oppression by removing an app that freedom protesters there were using it to organize.
So, for all the preaching that Apple does about “justice” and “oppression,” they don’t stand in solidarity against the oppressive Communist Chinese government.
But that’s what “woke” companies like Apple do. They preach to everyone else about what they are doing wrong but refuse to look in the mirror.
We wonder how apple would feel if the 800,000 men and women who call themselves police officers took their money elsewhere? Unfortunately, that would mean going to a company called Google, which does enough oppressing of free thought itself.
