Boycott Goodyear Tires

Trump Goodyear
WIBW of Topeka, Kansas, where Goodyear Tire & Rubber has a plant, broke the news that the Goodyear company has issued an edict banning expressions of support for the police, while allowing expressions of support for the Marxist insurrectionists of BLM.

The station reported a slide that was presented during a diversity training showing what’s acceptable and what isn’t acceptable as part of Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company’s zero-tolerance policy.

Under acceptable: Black Lives Matter (BLM), Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Pride.

Listed as unacceptable: Blue Lives Matter, All Lives Matter, MAGA Attire, Political Affiliated Slogans or Material

WIBW quoted a Goodyear spokesperson, Melissa Monaco, as issuing this statement:

Goodyear is committed to fostering an inclusive and respectful workplace where all of our associates can do their best in a spirit of teamwork. As part of this commitment, we do allow our associates to express their support on racial injustice and other equity issues but ask that they refrain from workplace expressions, verbal or otherwise, in support of political campaigning for any candidate or political party as well as other similar forms of advocacy that fall outside the scope of equity issues.

The company later issued a longer statement in fractured English that was even more tone deaf, which you can read through this link. Hat tip to the Federalist’s Sean Davis.

This controversy makes Goodyear just the latest in a long list of clueless corporations to grovel before the trained Marxists of BLM and engage in white person shaming (or perhaps they really are Marxists too).

And police officers and their families were quick to call out the company’s hypocrisy for making money from sales to police forces while banning expressions of support for the men and women who staff them.

Police officers and supporters interviewed by The Police Tribune said they felt the statement from one of the nation’s largest tire companies was tone-deaf given the recent anti-police sentiment rolling across the country.

An active-duty police officer from New York asked. “Doesn’t my life matter?”

A lifelong Goodyear tire customer in Florida told The Police Tribune she will “never buy another Goodyear-brand anything.”

“I don’t want to hear any anti-police sentiment or politics from a company that is making a ton of money off the tires police are wearing out trying to protect my community,” she said. “My tax dollars help pay for those tires and I don’t think Goodyear should benefit any more from that, given their blatant lack of support for law enforcement.”

And truck drivers posting on Transportation Nation were having none of Goodyear’s anti-police attitude either, with one posting:

Well, I have never had any luck with Good Year products of any sort, so boycotting them is easy, as I have been for years. This just solidifies my resolve to never financially support this un-American outfit. BLM is a Marxist terrorist organization calling for the destruction of our country and government as we know it. This has been stated by numerous leaders of the BLM movement. Good Year can go to Hell.

President Trump was the first to call for a formal boycott of Goodyear, tweeting on Wednesday:

“Don’t buy GOODYEAR TIRES – They announced a BAN ON MAGA HATS. Get better tires for far less! (This is what the Radical Left Democrats do. Two can play the same game, and we have to start playing it now!),”

We feel sorry for Goodyear’s 60,000 employees who work for idiots, and for the company’s shareholders who saw their stock nosedive because they employ idiots to manage their company, but President Trump is right: This is what the Radical Left Democrats do. Two can play the same game, and we have to start playing it now! #BoycottGoodyear
