(Natural News) An employee at the Goodyear tire company has leaked a slide from a recent “diversity training session” depicting which political slogans are acceptable for company employees to embrace and promote, and which ones are not. And as we have come to expect, the acceptable ones are all far-left in nature.
Goodyear’s zero-tolerance policy, the slide indicates, rejects political movements like Blue Lives Matter, All Lives Matter, and “MAGA Attire,” referring of course to President Donald Trump’s Make America Great Again slogan. These and other “Politically Affiliated Slogans or Material” are “unacceptable” at Goodyear, the slide further explains.
Political movements that are acceptable at Goodyear, however, include Black Lives Matter, or BLM, along with “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Pride (LGBT).” These are somehow exempt from Goodyear’s zero-tolerance policies concerning political slogans and material.
“According to @goodyear tires, a MAGA shirt is a zero tolerance hate symbol,” tweeted Mike Cernovich in response to the news. “But Black Lives Matter is allowed,” he added, BLM, as we have reported, being a full-blown religious cult.
According to WIBW, the image came from an “employee who took the photo of the slide,” which was “presented at the Topeka (Kansas) plant by an area manager.” The original source of the slide is said to be Goodyear’s corporate office, which is based out of Akron, Ohio.
The individual responsible for sharing this slide with the world has chosen to remain anonymous over job concerns. He or she did, however, issue a statement to WIBW that reads:
“If someone wants to wear a BLM shirt in here, then cool. I’m not going to get offended about it. But at the same time, if someone’s not going to be able to wear something that is politically based, even in the farthest stretch of the imagination, that’s discriminatory. If we’re talking about equality, then it needs to be equality. If not, it’s discrimination.”
Trump calls for Goodyear boycott
While Goodyear has not yet confirmed that it did, in fact, issue the slide and that it is authentic, company spokeswoman Melissa Monaco issued a statement to WIBW that contends Goodyear “is committed to fostering an inclusive and respectful workplace where all of our associates can do their best in a spirit of teamwork.”
Meanwhile, President Donald Trump has gone public with calls for a nationwide boycott of Goodyear’s products.
Trump has chosen to focus on the MAGA prohibition element of Goodyear’s zero-tolerance policy, as it is personal to him, declaring that Americans can “[g]et better tires for far less!”
“This is what the Radical Left Democrats do,” Trump added in the parenthetical portion of this same tweet. “Two can play the same game, and we have to start playing it now!”
Once the nation learned about the fiasco and Trump’s call for a boycott, Goodyear responded by issuing another press release via Twitter backing away from the obvious liberal bias in its “diversity” training.
Goodyear announced that after having become “the focus of a conversation that created some misconceptions about our policies and our company,” it has chosen to emphasize that its corporate policies have “always wholeheartedly supported both equality and law enforcement and will continue to do so.”
Interestingly, Goodyear chose to disable the comment section on this particular tweet, likely to prevent the inevitable onslaught of backlash that surely would have ensued.
The fiasco led to a rapid four-percent drop in Goodyear’s share values, reports indicate. The company currently employs about 63,000 people, which is roughly half of the number employed back in 1990.
