Costco pulls Palmetto Cheese after founder
calls BLM a ‘terrorist organization’

Original Article

Palmetto Cheese, a regional pimento cheese brand based in South Carolina, is getting grilled by shoppers and social media alike after publicly comparing the Black Lives Matter movement to a “terrorist organization.” Now, Costco is pulling the popular cheese spread from its stores’ shelves, USA Today reports. Palmetto Cheese founder Brian Henry, who also happens to be mayor of Pawleys Island, spurred outrage last month when he took a controversial stand against BLM. “I am sickened by the senseless killings in Georgetown,” he wrote in a now-deleted Facebook post on Aug. 25, following the death of Charles Nicholas Wall and Wall’s stepdaughter, Laura Anderson, on Aug. 24.

Comments:

So Costco publicly craps on the 1st Amendment of the Constitution and thinks that it's acceptable?? Guess I'll be checking into both BJ's and Sam's Club.

I agree with OP. I won't patronize a company that caves to threats from un-American organizations when someone speaks the truth about them just to save a few bucks. Costco knows what it can do with my membership card.

There be a whole lot of intimidation goin’ on out dere and, surprise!, Costco‘s headquarters are near Seattle. Can the DOJ investigate why a publicly traded corporation has denied access to a vendor for exercising his First Amendment right to voice an opinion Which also happens to be true? Who is behind Costco’s decision and was fear of attack a factor? Is China and/or Soros or another traitor like him involved?

More effective than a boycott is a buycott. I've been buying Goya products and I (at the time) supported Chick-Fil-A when they were under attack even though it tastes like cardboard to me. I hope that LDotters who live in the areas where Palmetto Cheese products will make sure to buy their products.

I don't know a soul who'll support a company, such as Costco, which supports a terrorist organization like BLM. Time for them to reap what they have sown.

Are their no patriots in corporate America? Paying homage to BLM is disgusting to the vast majority of Americans. BLM knows they are losing support or they would have not cleaned up the wording on their website because people were actually going there to read what they believe. The corporations buying into this movement are insane. BLM backed by Soros and the rest of his comrades who want to destroy this country should never be legitimatized. They are clearly fomenting insurrection all over this country. It is a well funded and well organized group of anarchists fueled by hate, enabled by the media and the democrat party. It is a disgusting display of the most heinous anti-American violence that just keeps growing. It is disturbing because we all just sit back and watch as night after night more cities are exploding with senseless violence. The democrat party has a lot to answer for and its support of this is the most egregious and that is saying a lot considering their penchant for lawlessness. Don’t these companies know that they are supporting their own demise when they openly take a side in this assault on the country and the very ideas that gave them the opportunity to thrive as businesses. Once you become indebted to the mob, you will never be free to run your business. They will make every decision for you. Only fools would support the philosophy behind BLM. Pledging allegiance to this group may appease them now, but eventually they will come for you and you will do whatever they say because this group not about freedom it is all about the darkest form of tyranny. People will not forgets this. Americans are disgusted by these corporations pandering. They should just shut up and do business. Get politics out of their boardrooms.

You cannot say all lives matter in America today without the Leftist press and their lackeys jumping on you ferociously with their dominant media power. The Cancel culture movement wishes to kill this nation but it needs to be killed before it metastasizes which is the only way we can truly continue as a decent, freedom loving nation. The fact so far, very early AM on Thursday Sept 24, is that Costco REPORTEDLY is pulling Palmetto, but no statement by Costco has verified this. So it may be premature to castigate Costco as if they have done so. If they verify this action, then they deserve to be treated like just another pandering, progressive virtual signaling organization. Also, note that the CEO of Palmetto is "regretting" saying what he said, calling it an emotional outburst that doesn't reflect his true feelings. In other words, he's trying to save his small company from a disaster in the making by the virtue signalers of America.

Palmetto Pimento Cheese is readily available at supermarkets all over the South and perhaps beyond. It just comes in smaller containers than those at Costco. I’m going to wait and see what develops before I boycott either Costco or Palmetto. Who knows - it could be that Henry and his family are being threatened with physical harm. And he was right about the shooting and about BLM.

1st... Palmetto Pimento Cheese is a first class product. We Southerners have a semi religious thing about pimento cheese. This is the good stuff. This is the stuff you bring out when you are making nice sandwiches for company or adding it to a holiday dish. It is genuine, honest to goodness Southern style pimento cheese. My husband, a pimento cheese addict, will buy no other kind. 2nd... Costco can shove it! We haven't had a membership with them for decades because of some of the political and social stands they have made in the past. I have a long memory.

They don’t care that much for BLM, they just don’t want to get their warehouses burned down or looted in the liberal Democrat run cities. They are taking the cowardly way out to terrorism. That’s what domestic terrorism is all about.

I know Sam Walton had ties to the Clintons back in Arkansas when he was alive, but nearly everybody in the state had some sort of connection to that Governor back then. And I know his Walmart carries more goods made in China than in the US. But I have been to the hoity-toity Costco as a guest from coast to coast. Their membership fee is twice what it should be and they are generally overpriced, as well. Just give me Sam's Club instead. There are more of them and my blood isn't blue enuf for Costco. PS: Like poster above, I am still buying Goya products and I continue to see product sold out/on order at the two chain groceries I frequent. So AMEN to the buycott.

Well this stinks. I quit Sam's Club because of their archaic and discriminatory membership policies (apparently a lot of people quit them, because they closed their store near me); and now Costco is bowing to a terrorist organization and removing a fine product from their shelves. I shop mainly at Aldi now. They have some Goya products but no Palmetto Cheese. Wish I knew of another outlet in Nashville....will be rethinking our Executive Membership at Costco.

"Terrorism" is defined as the use of violence to achieve socio/political aims. Black Lives Matter (nee Black Liberation Movement) is a marxist revolutionary organization that is trying to establish its power by tearing apart the fabric of this country. BLM is a terrorist organization and its members/enablers should be prosecuted for sedition as well as terrorism. 9/11 is survivable. A loss of national will and cohesion, not so much.

Funny ... I don't remember Costco removing and boycotting Ben & Jerry's ice cream when those two morons called Trump a fascist and named a "new" flavor "Pecan Resist". Typical Big Lib response to a small non-issue. Elevate it to the level of tragedy and exercise moral preening in the process. And, of course, be very selective in your outrage.

Seeing this sort of thing happening all over our country, I can't help but believe that 1) obviously the companies do not want their assets burnt to the ground and 2) they actually believe that by feeding the alligator it will eat them last ( customers can be 're-acquired' later, they think, through massive advertising 'when things return to normal' !! ) Ronald Reagan said in a speech in 1964, that you can have peace right this moment - all you have to do is surrender !! This is exactly what companies are doing and are expecting peace to be the result. I predict that will NOT be the outcome. Appeasement, and that's what it is, will not work because NO AMOUNT of appeasement is going to satisfy the groups we are dealing with. They do not want you to 'agree' with them, they want you DESTROYED so that they can start building their utopia as promised by the likes of Soros et al. This is why I expect far more violent 'protests' possibly leading to a type of civil war to sweep across this country when President Trump wins. If I'm right and I pray to God that I am wrong, ' you ain't seen nuthin' yet. Think about it. What do the protesters have to lose. Most have no property to speak of and those that do are SURE that they will be spared the wraith of the protests ( ask the mayor of Seattle how well that works ). From what I have seen, very few have been incarcerated and most of those that have are soon released ( with the promise they'll return for their hearing - yeah right ! ). Without SWIFT, severe and unrelenting consequences, this rioting will spread and continue until all we have left is a scorched barren wasteland.

In three days before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Judge Amy Coney Barrett did more than just prove that she belongs on the Supreme Court. She delivered one of the most effective performances ever for a nominee seeking the job. As judicial nominations have become more contentious, all recent nominees to the Supreme Court have demonstrated a depth of knowledge about constitutional law and a lawyer’s ability to field questions from senators. Barrett certainly did all of that. In days of testimony, she effortlessly recounted the issues at stake in various legal disputes, juggled questions from senators, and explained the reasoning in her own decisions and academic writings, all without notes.

Such was the case on Friday when Trump joked with supporters at a rally in Macon, Georgia, that he wouldn’t “feel so good” if he lost the election to Joe Biden, and might have to “leave the country” if he does. Before we continue, the operative word in the prior sentence is joked. Trump spoke for nearly two hours before the energized crowd at an event that can only be described —

A pair of new studies suggest that those with a certain blood type may be less likely to be infected with the novel coronavirus and less likely to suffer severe illness if they were to be infected. The studies were both published in the journal Blood Advances, a publication of the American Society of Hematology, on Wednesday. In the first, researchers looked at some 473,654 people in Demark who were tested for COVID-19 between February and July and compared them with the general population of roughly 2.2 million people.

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden said during an ABC News town hall Thursday he would seek to dramatically raise taxes on job-creating corporations and wealthy Americans despite lingering economic malaise caused by COVID-19-related business closures and lockdowns. After moderator George Stephanopoulos asked the former vice president if he planned on raising the corporate tax rate even as the economy continues to struggle amid the pandemic, Biden responded, “Absolutely.” Throughout his candidacy, Biden has said he would move to repeal and eliminate tax cuts passed by the GOP-controlled Congress and President Donald Trump in December 2017. If he does, that means the U.S. corporate tax rate of 21 percent —

The headlines in today's news all said something along the lines of "Biden says he's not a fan of court-packing." The implication was clear: all those conservatives saying a Biden and Harris administration will destroy America as we know it by turning the Supreme Court into an unelected Democrat super-legislature need to stand down. It's not going to happen. However, if you pay careful attention to what Biden said, he didn't condemn actual court-packing at all. He either used Orwellian words to condemn a conservative justice joining the Supreme Court or gave a weak opinion, not a statement of intent.

During the Democrat primary, the candidates were crawling over each other to be the most aggressive in imposing stringent gun control laws and, if possible, seizing people's guns. The Second Amendment didn't stand a chance in that crowd. You may have noticed, though, that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris don't talk about guns now. Instead, with the Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots having sent Americans on an epic gun-buying binge, they've opted for discretion. The Trump campaign, however, has put out a hard-hitting ad with a necessary reminder that the Democrats will still take your guns.

Well into President Obama's first term, I still bought into the general belief that politics was a noble profession, and our leaders wanted nothing but the best for all Americans. Sure, Republican and Democrat politicians fought hard for their differing ideologies and constituents, but at the end of the day, they could be trusted to compromise and do what's right. I hate to admit such naïveté, but that's what I thought. But as Obama traveled the world criticizing and talking down the United States, I had this uneasy feeling that something wasn't right.

Joe Biden and Kamala Harris’ refusal to answer the question of whether a Democrat victory would lead to the packing of the Supreme Court is troubling. It suggests they do indeed intend to pack the court. That would be a threat to our republic, made all the worse because the press is asleep/ Here's why: If President Trump threatened to pack the Supreme Court there would be 24/7 news coverage with Democrat wailing and gnashing of teeth about Trump’s threat being an extinction event for democracy, blah, blah, blah.

People are noticing the missing crowds when Joe Biden and Kamala Harris visited Phoenix on Thursday. Not a single person turned out to cheer on the Democrat party candidates. None. Nada. Zip. That is stunning. Trump-supporters find this heartening when comparing this to the crowds who turn out for Trump. However, we may be making head-to-head comparisons between the wrong crowds. The critical metric might not be Biden crowds versus Trump crowds. It might be Trump-supporters' enthusiasm versus Black Lives Matter protesters' enthusiasm — and the latter could win.

James Arkin of Politico writes: South Carolina Democrat Jaime Harrison raised a staggering $57 million in the third quarter of this year, shattering the previous record for a Senate candidate as he seeks to unseat GOP Sen.

Former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who now serves on Joe Biden's transition team, suggested Sunday that President Trump’s supreme court nominee, Amy Coney Barrett, poses a threat to his marriage.
