Just saw this article..."Harris Teeter, Kroger face backlash for pulling pro-America items after complaints: 'Get woke, go broke'"

I thought i lived in America...Where we advertise our love of our country. This forcing everyone to not say a damn thing about anything anymore is going too far. The shootings that have occurred happened for alot of reasons but believing in American epithets is not one of them.

i am pretty anti gun as a rule but this cancel culture crap has gone too far. "give me liberty or give me death" does not cause some psycho to go into a school and shoot up a bunch of children. Why don't YOU go get woke!

Well put.
I am also very sick and tired of the whiny little b****** having the limelight center stage.
If I owned a business that made instant rice or pancakes syrup or for that matter even butter, I would be damned if I would let a bunch of sociological terrorists to dictate what I did with my company or how I chose to advertise it.
They did this to the my pillow guy. Because he was an outspoken conservative he was ostracized. Places like bed bath & beyond stopped selling his pillows because of it. Actually the list of people who did that is huge.
I say let them hold their breath till they turn purple before you cave to their superficial demands.
Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

@lilymaesixty1 they claim that the American flag is the symbol of fascism. Have you ever heard anything more absurd than that?
Oh God and don't get me started on that covid crap.
They claim it is safe. They claim they have done all this testing on it and the risk of side effects is minimal.
But when I got covid pneumonia I was treated with steroids. I am still suffering the aftermath of that because it has my blood sugar blown all out of proportion. I mean really really really bad.
Guess they didn't see that one coming so what else didn't they see yet?

@Dainbramadge i guess it will be made more obvious when people who have had Covid or had the vaccine have more children.

and isn't the American flag anti fascism?

@lilymaesixty1 as much as I hate my ex-wife I am glad she felt the same way about the vaccine as I did. Thankfully our kids did it the old fashioned way and got covid and got over it. No need for some magical cure-all that was pushed through way too fast.

Yes the American flag thing is boggling to the mind.
I have seen in some neighborhoods people getting threatening letters or even having their flags torn down or sat on fire.
"Woke" originally was a term that used to mean not [b]racist[/b]. So we’re actually going backwards, to the days where you’d lose money for integrating your business, your tv cast, your clubs, etc. So since racism has been a long-standing American "value" I don’t doubt that we’ll be reclaiming it shortly.
