Levi Strauss CEO Goes Full Anti-Gun, Paying Employees to ‘Volunteer’ for Gun-Control Organizations

The list of anti-gun companies continues to grow.  Sometimes they aren’t a surprise, sometimes they are.  About ten years ago I was with a group of people traveling through China.  I noticed the ditch on the side of the road didn’t have the normal algae-green water, but instead, the water was almost a glowing blue color.  I asked a local why the water was bright blue.  The response was, “In a few minutes you will know why.”.  Sure enough, on the horizon I noticed a huge, modern, Levi’s factory.  When Levi’s pulled out of the US, or at least most of the manufacturing, they went to China like many other companies.  Did they do it for cheap labor, maybe, but one reason many companies go to China is there are essentially no pollution standards.  In this case, Levi would dump their leftover dye right on the land, letting it flow across the countryside.  Something tells me if a dye can permanently alter cotton, it can’t be good for people or wildlife.  I was disgusted by what I saw and never bought another pair of Levis.  Fast forward, and now I have another reason per the article I quote below:

Support an international boycott of Levis

Support an international boycott of Levis

In the best attempt to date to unseat Edward Stack as the nation’s Virtue Signaler in Chief, Levi Strauss’s CEO Chip Bergh bravely announced this week his company’s support of “youth activists” working to end the “gun violence epidemic” in America and encouraged other “business leaders” to do the same.

“As business leaders with power in the public and political arenas, we simply cannot stand by silently when it comes to the issues that threaten the very fabric of the communities where we live and work,” he said in a recent op-ed published by Fortune. “While taking a stand can be unpopular with some, doing nothing is no longer an option.”

Naming his brand among the “pioneers of the American West” and the “great symbols of American freedom,” Bergh outlines three ways he’s hoping to restrict the constitutional rights of his fellow Americans.

First, he plans to establish the Safer Tomorrow Fund, which will dole out $1 million in “philanthropic grants” to “nonprofits and youth activists who are working to end gun violence in America.”

Next, Bergh and his company will join Everytown for Gun Safety’s new Business Leaders for Gun Safety coalition. Roughly paraphrasing Everytown’s website, this group is working to join banks and other businesses doing their darndest to bankrupt gun companies and marginalize gun owners.

Finally, Bergh hopes to incentivize his employees to join him in his righteous crusade. Levi Strauss will double its usual employee donation match to anti-gun organizations and pay employees for sixty working hours per year (5 hours per month) to volunteer for the same organizations.

“We’re encouraging our employees to use their time to make an impact,” he said.

Bergh assures his readers he doesn’t want to repeal the Second Amendment or suggest that gun owners aren’t responsible. He’s a former Army officer, after all, and he took an oath to support and defend the Constitution.

Those constitutional rights don’t apply to everyone, of course. Bergh quotes retired four-star general Michael Hayden, who said in a promotional piece for the Giffords Center that “some people… should never have access to any weapons.”

In a dramatic conclusion, Bergh explains that Levi Strauss has “never been afraid to take an unpopular stand to support a greater good,” highlighting his company’s support for integration before the Civil Rights Act and for same-sex couples all the way back in the 1990s.

“While each one of these stands may have been controversial at the time, history proved the company right in the long run,” he says, courageously. “And I’m convinced that while some will disagree with our stand to end gun violence, history will prove this position right too.”

Levi Strauss may have been at the forefront of the Civil Rights movement, but they’re hardly the first company to take a stand against Guns: The Great American Evil. Following the Parkland massacre, a variety of companies, including WalmartBank of AmericaShopify, and Dick’s Sporting Goods, announced policies designed to curb the Second Amendment rights of their customers and business partners.

Louisiana Tells Anti-Gun Banks They’re Out

OK, why am I posting an article about Louisiana?  It isn’t about Louisiana, it is about keeping in mind what businesses we will support, and that includes your banks.  If you remember back a few years, Bank of America was giving home loans to illegals.  Now they are at it again, together with Citigroup.  Do you want to do business with these financial behemoths?

*****************************
Two of the nation’s largest banks—ones that wanted to do what was politically expedient after the school shooting in Parkland, Fla.—have found out that it’s going to cost them some business. Louisiana’s State Bond Commission recently voted 7-6 to bar Citigroup Inc. and Bank of America from taking part in a $600 million project to improve Interstate 10 and some smaller projects.

Attorney General Jeff Landry and State Treasurer John Schroder had been working on the state’s response to corporate gun control “for some time,” according to state Executive Division Press Secretary Ruth Wisher. Blocking the banks from a share of the road and airport improvements is the first visible step.

“As treasurer and chairman of the Bond Commission it is one of my duties to help hire financial professionals and not necessarily social engineers,” Schroder said. The two banks, in the months after the deadly shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, made it clear that they want to impose their anti-Second Amendment sentiment on everyone with whom they do business. Citigroup, for example, announced it would cut business ties with retailers that sell “high-capacity” magazines. Bank of America, meanwhile, pulled out of lending money to gun manufacturers that make modern sporting rifles like the AR-15.

“I personally believe the policies of these banks are an infringement on the rights of Louisiana citizens,” Schroder said in a statement. “As a veteran and former member of law enforcement, I take the Second Amendment very seriously.”

If banks that took public money when they almost went belly-up during the subprime mortgage crisis think they can just wantonly discount American rights, it looks like they’ve got another think coming. Thank you, Louisiana. It’s nice to see a state stand up to a bully.

Two men sentenced for poaching mule deer


LOVINGTON – Two men pleaded guilty to killing mule deer out of season, unlawful possession, tampering with evidence and other charges filed against them in Lovington District Court last December. Both men received probation and were ordered to pay $2,400 in fines, $330 in court fees and forfeit their rifles earlier this month.

On Dec. 28, 2017, Hobbs District Offic­er Andrew Jolliff received a tip from the Operation Game Thief hotline — a number set up by the Department of Game and Fish for the public to report poachers — about a deer that was killed illegally on Christmas Day. The tipster mentioned that the deer had been butchered and was buried near an oil rig in Lea County.

After an investigation, two suspects admitted to killing more than one mule deer each — two does and a forked antler buck. Officer Jolliff seized the antlers, the meat the men had processed from the deer, both of the men’s rifles and arrested one.

“It was thanks to a tip to Operation Game Thief that this conviction was able to occur,” said Capt. Andy Gray. “We encourage members of the public to report poachers to the department. The key to helping conservation officers track down poachers and protect our wildlife is to report the information as quickly as possible.”

Both men admitted they did not think there would be a game warden working on Christmas and did not believe they would be caught.

If you see or suspect a wildlife crime, please call the 24-hour Operation Game Thief hotline at 1-800-432-GAME. You can remain anonymous and can earn a monetary reward. Remember: poachers steal your wildlife.
