Goodyear clarifies policy on MAGA,
pro-police gear after Trump boycott
call

Original Article

Posted By: DVC, 8/20/2020 5:14:53 PM

Goodyear clarified its policy on acceptable workplace attire on Thursday, one day after reports that one of its facilities in Topeka, Kansas had banned “Make America Great Again” and “Blue Lives Matter” apparel which prompted President Trump to call for a boycott of the Ohio-based company. Goodyear Chairman and CEO Rich Kramer said the slide from a presentation at the Topeka plant “was not approved or distributed by Goodyear Corporate or anyone outside of that facility.” The company has clarified its policy to inform employees that they can “express support for law enforcement through apparel at Goodyear facilities," but are asked to "refrain" from wearing apparel of a political nature.

Comments:

MAGA gear still banned, but not clear whether BLM gear or LGBT gear is still OK.
More winning. Probably.

So as far as Goodyear is concerned Black Lives Matter and Blue Lives Matter are about the same thing. Wear what you want as long as it doesn't affect the bottom line. Then again it's not the police looting Chicago's expensive stores, is it. Goodyear, Up Yours.

TOO LATE. We're tired of companies toeing the line for the Leftists...you either LOVE AMERICA or you Love Leftists, it's that simple. Grow a set of Cahones and tell the Leftists to pound sand...OR you will lose so much money you will be UNEMPLOYED! Got IT? I, as an American and a Veteran am sick and tired of YOU COMMUNISTS trying to run down and take over MY Country. Either you get right in the head or get the hell out!

Some Goodyear stores are corporate owned, others are privately owned. The distinction should be made in the story, but in the end the corporate image is damaged when stuff like this happens.

If Goodyear doesn't support Make America Great Again, I don't want to support Goodyear. I don't care if a candidate uses that phrase, the idea that you can't wear something saying Make America Great Again is offputting.

"Nuance"; go tell it to Chick-Fil-A. If their leaders are too dense to grasp that Gay Pride and especially BLACK LIVES MATTER are overtly Marxist political movements, then I have no use for their tires. Banned from this household, no problem.

It's a bit like Chicago. They can loot the poor neighborhoods with impunity and a few people will get upset. Not those in the board room mind you, just middle management. So don't boycott Goodyear products, SELL YOUR STOCK. If they trash RICH Chicago the mayor (Lori with an I ) starts paying attention.

Here's a hint! Before you hire a company for "diversity training", find out what they are going to say! Stop the PC nonsense as you have no idea what they are instructing.

i first was exposed to 'diversity training' in an MBA class, 1968. the guest speaker was employed as a trainer for GE, and it was not called diversity training,' but was instead training to help understand how to hire and help make black employees successful at GE. The fundamental message was that individuals from different sub-cultures sometimes saw things differently in the workplace. the speaker's visual aid was a small prism, which was handed around to the students. note that the organization did not have to bend to the will of the black employees, just stressed trying to understand them. modern diversity training is like placing a foot on the neck of the organization, which will always practice implicit racism, no matter what they do. It is a never win situation for the organization, with perpetual dimness falling upon them..

I didn’t see anything in the article about the person who made and showed the slide being fired. Until that happens and an apology is issued we should still consider Goodyear and Kramer to be lying to us. Even if they do both, we should still buy from other companies.

Every workplace gets the choice to say what is acceptable attire and what is not in the office, plant or showroom. The president doesn't get a vote. As much as I like Donald Trump, no way can he dictate to me where I buy tires for my car. When our state offices began to say what we could wear and what we couldn't, I chose to keep on keeping on with my business attire. I know how quickly someone will be given an inch and take a mile or two. I will buy Goodyear, if the price suits me. I can't see putting American workers out of a job just because of some snotty politics.

If Goodyear starts to see a slowdown in their customer base and tire sales after that political fiasco that went public apparently created by some manager in that particular tire factory in Kansas, you can bet that there is going to be a big Goodyear skid mark where that manager’s rear end hits the road as he is fired by Goodyear. Those corporations are really stupid to get involved in politics, as whatever side they take is going to cause them to loose customers who support the opposite political persuasion. In this instance, chances are the Goodyear plant management calculated that the employees who were showing that they supported the Black Lives Matters (BLM) movement were more prone to create sabotage and violence inside the plant, and possibly injure other employees, than employees supporting the Blue Lives Matter concept. That thinking probably came about from the rioting, arson, and looting that management observed the BLM create on the streets of some cities, and decided to take what they thought was the path to the least chance of violence and unrest in the plant by allowing BLM recognition, and shutting down the obviously more peaceful employees and concepts throughout that plant.

Since it's usually the Trump supporter who is set upon by thugs of a different political persuasion, perhaps the HR department was trying to be thoughtful and benevolent in eliminating the source of and instigator of tensions in the workplace. ...nah If people haven't figured out yet that the Left is ALWAYS tyrannical and dictatorial and micromanages everything and everyone and ALWAYS fails at it, requiring greater and more extensive powers and more ruthless tactics, then they are abysmally ignorant (to put it nicely).

The Antifa and BLM rioters doing their best to destroy leftist cities ruled by confused idealists are the outward manifestation of a more dangerous impulse threatening to destroy all of America. It is an impulse to self-deification that motivates the rioters and their enablers to see themselves as righteous crusaders saving the world. They insist that the rest of us conform to their lofty worldview, but they are like children playing with idealistic dynamite, oblivious to its destructive power while they earnestly fumble with matches to light the fuse.

Iran’s Revolutionary Guard warned of a “dangerous future” for the United Arab Emirates over a U.S.-brokered agreement that sees the UAE open up diplomatic relations with Israel. The Iranian guard called it “shameful” and an “evil action” underwritten by the U.S. that would set back U.S. influence and bring a “dangerous future” for the government. That comes after Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said in a televised address that the UAE had made a “huge mistake” in normalizing ties with Israel and that it would allow the U.S. ally to gain a “foothold in the region.” The Iranian Foreign Ministry had released a statement Friday in which it decried the “shameful move to normalize

Clinesmith was referred for potential prosecution by the Justice Department's inspector general's office, which conducted its own review of the Russia investigation. Specifically, the inspector general accused Clinesmith, though not by name, of altering an email about former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page to say that he was "not a source" for another government agency.

Trump this week announced he was pardoning Anthony for the conviction, a measure the president took on the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, which recognized the right of women to vote.

Chicago Police Ban Protests

Posted by Pluperfect 8/21/2020 4:27:48 AM Post Reply
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.

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.
