The Mega Corporation, Patagonia, who sell outdoor gear have called people who voted for President Trump “Rednecks”. The company is officially involved in what they term #The Resistance.
They are protesting because the Trump administration is looking to shrink the size of “monument parks” which Obama took under Federal ownership because it might hurt their profit margins. So they have lashed out not just at the Administration, but also at people who used their democratic right to vote for a candidate of their choice.
The sheer idiocy is that it is likely Trump voters who buy their gear. It is aimed at the Outdoors market, and the reality is that very few snowflakes take to the rugged trail…Massive Fail.
As reported in the Daily Caller:
The founder of Patagonia, the outdoor apparel company that has pledged to lead the resistance against President Donald Trump, called Trump’s voters “rednecks.”
“Why should we kowtow to these redneck voters and Republican politicians?” said Yvon Chouinard, Patagonia’s eccentric founder and billionaire environmentalist, according to consultant Steve Everly. “The most you can achieve is a compromise, and that never solves a problem.”
The Trump administration wants to shrink the area set aside by Obama, much to the chagrin of outdoor companies, like Patagonia, that profit off of federally protected national parks through the sale of outdoor goods to prospective visitors.
