You would think that if you rise to the level of being an executive in a corporation you would have to be pretty smart. But that doesnt seem to be the case. Look at the latest bit of ignorance put out by Goodyear.

They put out a directive that no employee can wear Maga caps or blue lives matter T-shirts. But they say they can wear BLM caps and T-shirts.

This is incredibly ignorant on their part, because it irritates way more than half of their buying public. Proof is in the fact that their stock price dropped. How any CEO of any large corporation can come out with political stupidity like that is in no way understandable. It is going to alienate at least half of the people that they do business with, and ruin their profits.

Apparently not quite:

Goodyear has revised its policy on expressing support for law enforcement
TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW/WOIO) - The CEO of Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company has released a statement clarifying the company’s stance regarding what is and is not allowed inside the workplace.

According to Rich Kramer, CEO and president of the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company, the slide that was leaked from the Topeka plant was created by an employee at the Topeka plant and did not run it through its corporate office.

The slide obtained by 13 NEWS gave examples of what is and is not allowed inside the workplace.

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.

Kramer said the policy on political expression on the job is longstanding. The rule regarding the ability to express support for law enforcement has been revised.

“We have clarified our policy to make it clear associates can express support for law enforcement through apparel at Goodyear facilities,” Kramer wrote.

You mean to say that leftists aren't as tolerant and woke as they lead us to believe?

This is what originally went around below. The company can now attempt to clean up their mess but we know the threat of boycotts is what made them backtrack on their "wokeness".

Sorry to spoil your fun but, "According to Rich Kramer, CEO and president of the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company, the slide that was leaked from the Topeka plant was created by an employee at the Topeka plant and did not run it through its corporate office."

You'll get over it.

Yeah sure. The lying AH CEO is trying to get off the hook by blaming someone else. Hillary has been doing that for 4 years now, and we dont believe her either.

It's hilarious how you have the gall to call others ignorant.

They don't admit to mistakes. In fact there will be more right wingers in here still pushing this as a conspiracy against their cult leader.

They are all drunk on diversity, they probably didn't think this would leak out. Stupid yes. The diversity cult is a powerful force that works on guilt ridden libs.

That's the hole they've dug for themselves. It's been going on for several decades and of course the biggest mistake they can't admit to is Trump.

Do you not have a local newspaper that you can write to? Each day, every stupid thought you have gets its own stupid thread. Tedious for the rest of us. They usually disappear after a couple of responses anyway.

But when Trump claimed he didn’t hear his supporters loudly chanting “White Power” In a video he re-tweeted, he wasn’t lying? That’s your standard?
