The Rubber Meets the Virtue Signaling

‘Acceptable’; MAGA, Blue Lives Matter,
Not So Much

We can add “America’s Tire Company” to the long and growing list of virtue-signaling corporations that continue to prostrate themselves before the Black Lives Matter altar of pretend “systemic racism.” And for virtue-signaling extra credit, Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company has told its employees that terms like MAGA, Blue Lives Matter, and All Lives Matter are “unacceptable” in the workplace. As reported by WIBW 13 News in Topeka, Kansas, a Goodyear employee leaked a screenshot of a slide that was presented during a diversity training session showing what’s acceptable and what isn’t acceptable as part of the company’s new zero-tolerance policy. “Zero-tolerance.” Let’s talk about that for a moment.

Remember this when you're are plunking down a grand or more for your tires.

Goodyear is trying to Clinton-Parse it's way out of this. It's not a back-track, its a 'play the fools'. They implied it was fake. Goodyear said it didn't come from "Corporate". Ok, it came from Goodyear Regional Management, ie. GOODYEAR Goodyear said it wasn't a 'diversity training class'. It was instructions to Goodyear employees! Name the class whatever you will, they write the checks and dictated what rights you had left. Goodyear said they ask employees to refrain from political advocacy at work. Funny they said nothing about addressing the Political Advocacy that one of their management teams put into this gem. Not buying it. Not buying GOODYEAR. EVER.

It saddens me that an Ohio company would do this. But these corporations need learn -- go woke, go broke. Never forget the lesson of JC Penney. After their CEO decided to play politics instead of focusing on selling clothing, the company suffered. In fact, as soon as he began embracing liberal values -- like featuring a lesbian couple on the front of their Mothers Day ad and a two homosexual men on the cover of their Fathers Day ad -- the company lost money for the first time in decades. In fact, JC Penney continued to lose money EVERY quarter that the CEO was in charge and continued to do so even after he left the company.

Sorry for the second post. Goodyear did NOT backtrack. They carefully worded their public statement to say that political messages are banned, except for messages promoting left-wing, social justice ideologies.

I remember Ford Motor Company being asked why they, as an "American company," would do something. The Ford spokesface said, "Ford is a "Global company." That pretty much said it all regarding the decline of that American industry. More an more have followed suit and now we have all of our largest corporations in America with more workers in foreign countries (hello, India) than in the USA. Goodyear tires aren't what they once were. Choose Pirelli or Yokohama Tires instead.

This is what happens when what used to be the personnel department morphed into this PC monster called HR in most companies. What was caught at Goodyear is pretty much standard fare in the corporate world thanks to the woke underlings with useless “x-studies” degrees running HR departments. Goodyear must pay the price good and hard for this through their shareholders and executives for allowing it to happen in their corporate culture via litigation and firings. Make an example of them and don’t let the Jacobins in HR get away with it.

This is how Biden supporters treat elderly Americans.

One Syracuse University professor, however, has already been asked to leave campus for his rhetoric regarding COVID-19 on a class syllabus. Distinguished Professor of Chemistry Dr. Jon Zubieta distributed a Chemistry 411 syllabus that referred to COVID-19 as the “Wuhan Flu” and the “Chinese Communist Party Virus.” Most syllabi now have a reference section dedicated to addressing social distancing, mask requirements, and other COVID-related issues in the classroom. Syracuse students immediately took to social media, labeling the professor as xenophobic and demanding that he be immediately disciplined.

The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), the gun industry's trade group, estimates that 17.1 million guns have been sold between January and August with 4.84 million Americans purchasing their first guns. The sales—especially to new owners—represent a significant shift in American attitudes on gun ownership. "This is a tectonic shift in the firearm and ammunition industry marketplace and complete transformation of today’s gun-owning community," Lawrence G.

Were lockdowns a mistake? To that nagging question, the answer increasingly seems to be yes. Certainly, they were a novelty. As novelist Lionel Shriver writes, “We’ve never before responded to a contagion by closing down whole countries.” As I’ve noted, the 1957-58 Asian flu killed between 70,000 and 116,000 Americans, between 0.04 percent and 0.07 percent of the nation’s population. The 1968-70 Hong Kong flu about 100,000, 0.05 percent of the population. The US coronavirus death toll of 186,000 is 0.055 percent of the current population. It will go higher, but it’s about the same magnitude as those two flus,
