We’ve seen in recent years just how stupid it is for companies to bend the knee to the radical left. Angry, lecturing liberals have tried to scold companies into changing their values—not to mention their goods and services—out of fear they’d be shamed by the larger community.
Some companies have obeyed the woke mob’s commands. This is partially due to leftists within the companies, making the decisions. But sometimes, companies quickly fold, simply because they are cowards.
That seemed to be the case with two grocery store chains, which pulled patriotic, American-made products over the complaints of just a few woke Karens. So, customers struck back.
A customer took to Twitter Monday to complain about Harris Teeter selling some pro-America items — that read “Give me liberty or give me death” and “America, love it or leave it” — saying they were insensitive as mass shooting incidents happen around the country…
Harris Teeter responded by thanking the customer and telling her they would be discontinuing the “Freedom Series” items…
“110 Americans die every day from gun violence and most recently children, educators, health care providers, and family members were killed in mass shootings. Please remove them,” the customer said…
Then came the backlash…
“Are you serious? This is a stupid response. Not shopping at Kroger anymore for being anti-American,” one Twitter user said…
“102 people die per day in traffic fatalities. Can you also please make sure no coozies depict cars? Thanks in advance,” a customer said in another tweet. [Source: Fox News]
A handful of woke idiots complained about pro-American, pro-Second Amendment products at Harris Teeter and Kroger. So, these pathetic companies rushed to rip the products from the shelves, despite their popularity and the fact they were made in America.
Users online quickly bashed the companies over their cowardly moves. They pointed out that they still served Chicago-style pizza, despite the many gun crimes in the city. People die every day from car wrecks. Why aren’t they removing products with cars on them?
The ridicule went on and on. Customers vowed never to spend money at these stores again, because they so quickly caved to angry, un-American leftists.
It’s unclear how many people actually stop shopping at a store because of patriotic products. But we do know that conservatives quickly abandon a company after they start insulting their values to cater to the left.
As we all say, “go woke, go broke.”
Disney is learning the hard way you don’t spit in America’s eye and expect a payday. Their $200 million Lightyear film—which should have earned them a billion dollars—bombed hard for this very reason.
Companies exist to provide goods and services. Not to lecture us about politics. But when companies decide they should make up our minds on these issues, they end up losing big.
