#BoycottStarcucks

Yeah, man, don't talk to me until I've had my coffee, man. I'm not me until I've had my coffee.

—Ghost, doing his impression of coffee drinkers.


Coffee is a brewed drink consumed by large portions of the American population. Ghost, the host of True Capitalist Radio, views coffee as part of the reason we are living in Junkyard America.

While going through the Markets , as the opening portion of his show, Ghost almost always stops a the coffee prices. He takes time to say "...You stupid losers are going to have to pay more for your coffee, now."

Despite this, when accused of being Jewish, Ghost will often reply "I use yarmulkes for coffee filters", implying that he does drink coffee, though this is likely just an attempt to shut people up with no basis in reality. Ghost himself pointed out this contradiction in Episode 343.

Ghost is also an avid hater of the American coffee house chain Starbucks due to the hipster crowd and "caffe latte whores" it draws, often preferring to call it Starcucks. He was even further infuriated towards the chain due to their opposition towards Donald Trump's presidency, especially his policy towards migrants that the company openly protested by hiring 10'000 refugees. Ghost was subsequently happy to take part in the #BoycottStarbucks campaign that was spreading among right-wing circles on twitter after Trump's inauguration.

Trolls

Ghost's disgust for coffee drinkers, despite being the drink of choice for many hardworking Americans, has created several coffee-trolls, some of who became temporary-regulars on his show. The trolls usually call up and directly quote Ghost by saying, "Yeah, man, don't talk to me until I've had my coffee, man."
