Trump backs boycott of
Goodyear over ‘MAGA hat ban’

Sounds like President Trump might be the new Michelin tire man—and that’s not a joke about his weight. Trump called for a boycott of Goodyear tires Tuesday after the company’s workplace tolerance policy banned his trademark #MAGA caps as a display of hate speech on the job. “Don’t buy GOODYEAR TIRES - They announced a BAN ON MAGA HATS,” Trump tweeted.(Snip) The ban, which was presented to employees via slides shown by a plant manager, said #MAGA hats are “not acceptable” attire under a “zero-tolerance” policy toward hateful speech. Goodyear also reportedly told workers not to wear anything supporting particular political candidates.

Comments:

Tires are expensive; no problem adding them to my list of things I no longer buy. Goodyear: MAGA is unacceptable hate speech. All Lives Matter is bad. LGBTQ pride is good, as is Black Lives Matter.

Goodbye Goodyear. Hope you can make it on your sales to Transgenders, BLM and Antifa. If you had refused to take sides, we, on the right, would have given you the benefit of the doubt. But now you've made it clear. You're the enemy.

I'll bet Goodyear has an annual Code of Conduct training, which likely includes things about not being able to discriminate, or retaliate against people for a lot of things, which include political affiliation, I believe. Wonder if Goodyear has any Federal contracts which also likely prohibits them from discriminating and retaliating.

Really, how stupid can anyone in Goodyear Corporate HR get, to take sides with the criminals, and to ban people's political expression with MAGA hats? Nobody asked them to take sides. Some Leftist moron thought he should speak on behalf of the company and alienate half of the customer base. Whoever decided this at Goodyear should be fired. I wish I had some Goodyear stock, so I could dump it.

One more thing. Friend is a civil litigator. He tells me that DAs now must attend sensitivity training. I'm sure blm demanded. There were rumblings about that early on, that here in NH there is "systemic racism", a catch-all phrase to literally create an inescapable circular maze argument. We just happen to have a very small minority population. Overall our population is small. People pretty much live and let live. Giant corporations and "foundations" give millions to this organization which somehow sprang up fully formed like Athena from the head of Zeus, or maybe housefly from larva, more apropos. Blm is like NAZI storm-troopers, Black Panthers (lest we forget, there were plenty of white leftists in the Panthers) in new clothes, and must be exposed for what it asserts, promotes, demands: allegiance, money, power.

Companies are expressing their political views, and donating part of their earnings to political causes. I cannot see how they can express their views in the workplace, and the marketplace, and employees not be allowed to express their views. The zero tolerance policy of Goodyear, and the expression of political views, apparently does not apply to their executive suite.

As far as I am concerned, Goodyear makes subpar products. My Left Front Exploded at Interstate Speeds, almost causing a terrible accident. I immediately change all Tires on any Vehicle to Michelin, my son just bout a new vehicle and changed all Goodyear to Michelin immediately. I could site tens of problems I have personally experienced with Goodyear. They are not a quality product. So, I had already boycotted Goodyear for Safety Reasons. And now you know further how dumb their Management really is. Drive on Goodyear at your own Risk.

By Goodyear saying they are not being political by only supporting groups like BLM or LGBTQ, THEY ARE BEING POLITICAL and defeating the purpose of their own policy. They cannot pick and choose winners and losers in which "groups" are allowed and which are not. Either all are banned or none are banned. The things being done in the name of "diversity" and "inclusion" these days are neither diverse or inclusive. These actions are just creating more divisions among people as the thought police are going wild.

''He also suggested Goodyear’s products are substandard and too expensive.'' ''Get better tires for far less!'' he added. Those are two different statements, one of which President Trump did not make. David Goldiner owes President Trump an apology, as well as a correction to his fake news statement!

We have Goodyear tires on all three of our vehicles right now. But as I just informed Goodyear, those are the last Goodyear tires we will ever buy. Discrimination based on evil intention is always wrong!!! And that is exactly what Goodyear has decided to do. You would thing in these trying times, companies would be trying to avoid making a large chunk of their potential customer base very angry. But I guess being "woke" is worth bankruptcy to people with tiny lie-beral brains!!!

Heeding the advice of critics, Portland police say they repeatedly tried to deescalate with protesters Friday night. It didn’t work. As many as 200 demonstrators rampaged near a police station in the Oregon city, pelting a protective line of unoccupied police vehicles with golf balls, softball-sized rocks, metal railroad spikes, paint-filled plastic eggs and balloons filled with feces. A torn-up street sign was also used to smash cars, with tires slashed and windows broken, police said.

Chicago Police Ban Protests

The modern left-wing tactic of protesting at the private homes of their targets in an effort to intimidate them into doing what they want won’t work with Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot. The police say they’ve banned protests from the mayor’s block and will arrest anyone who doesn’t leave. Lightfoot just isn’t radical enough for Black Lives Matter. She won’t defund the police (she didn’t just escape from a mental institution, after all) and refuses to condemn the officers for trying to keep order. I wonder if the fact that Lightfoot enjoys police protection 24-7 has anything to do with her reluctance to criticize the cops too harshly.

The water filter inside a household refrigerator is a simple device: a plastic tube packed with activated carbon. Nonetheless, replacement filters for certain GE refrigerators cost a stiff $55. And they need to be replaced every six months. So it’s no surprise that many GE fridge owners seek cheaper generic filters. These fit just fine. But when the owner presses the button to dispense water or ice, nothing comes out. The culprit is a bit of engineering almost as in-genious as it is infuriating. It seems that official GE replacement filters include a small RFID chip whose only purpose is to tell the refrigerator
