Babylon Bee takes a swipe at Goodyear

Babylon Bee takes a swipe at Goodyear.

The parody site wrote,

Customers have lots of options for places to get tires for the other side of the car,” said Goodyear Chairman and CEO Rich Kramer. “It may not be popular, but we felt this was a stand we needed to take.”

The company’s exclusion applies to Service as well as Sales. Technicians may rotate the two tires on the driver’s side, but may not do any work on the other side of the vehicle.

Also, if you come in with four tires, Goodyear will scream and destroy your right-side tires, free of charge.”

Boycott Goodyear?

As we said at the time, we criticized certain politicians that pushed to boycott Goya Foods when it’s CEO endorsed Trump. Equally Trump shouldn’t be pushing a boycott on Goodyear based on its political bias.

Just let people decide whether it bothers them or not. We are sick of individuals/groups ganging up on others to boycott anything. Our history of this stance can be seen here. Two wrongs don’t make a right.

We are quite sure Goodyear will face a backlash, much like Gillette. Self inflicted wound thanks to capitalism. At present the share price has remained muted.

Goodyear skids off hypocrisy highway

One Team? More internal corporate workplace training nonsense. Police Tribune reports that Goodyear Tire has introduced a “zero tolerance” policy which promotes “intolerance.”

The list of “Acceptable” included “Black Lives Matter” and “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Pride (LGBT).”

The list of “Unacceptable” included “Blue Lives Matter,” “All Lives Matter,” “MAGA Attire,” and “Political Affiliated Slogans or Materials.”

The employee who posted the photo of the slide said that it was part of the diversity training at Goodyear’s Topeka plant. It apparently originated in the company’s headquarters in Akron, Ohio.

Fascinating to see internal corporate diversity departments think equality is found through active discrimination and suppression of free speech.
