The Goodyear Disaster

When I came home from work last night I saw this post at Instapundit concerning goodyear tires.

A photo seen circulating on social media shows 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.

The response from Goodyear was pablum but the response from President Trump was a lot more direct:

To say this is bad for the company is an understatement. This is not a niche product like some beer in Seattle that can just restrict it’s customer base., This is a product that are used across the political spectrum, and if you automatically exclude half of the voting population from your customer and offend police departments who buy tires in bulk base you are likely going to have trouble as a national brand.

Even worse now if they back away now you have the twitter mob (which while smaller is louder) on your ass.

If I was a stockholder I’d demand heads roll.

Exit question does this hurt Trump in Ohio where the tires are made or are the rank and file with him and want to get rid of the woke mob telling them what to think?

Update: That didn’t take long, they ran faster than Sir Robin but I have a question:

Translated: please Please PLEASE Mr. President take it back!

  1. Jeez, I remember “diversity” training sessions. What a waste of time. I read somewhere that someone did a study of those sessions and came to the conclusion that they actually made things worse instead of better, as people became more angry and anti-diversity after the training than before they went in.

    Looks like this one backfired on Goodyear big time. Be interesting to see how this plays out.
