Patagonia donates to antifa

Saw on the news , Patagonia donated $40,000 to antifa,
A domestic terrorist group , who likes to disrupt Republican rallies and meetings. Seems to have some problems at Berkeley with Trump supporters .
JUst figured it was some right wing news source so I called Patagonia.
THey gave money to a group called "fossil fuels divestment network"
With ended up being donated to antifa ? What kind of strange ass stuff is this ?
All I know , is the young Lady from Patagonia talked in circles even after talking to Corporate and calling me back, but facts seem to be
the social justice warriors got some money from them even if indirectly.
so I am going to boycott a product I would never buy anyway.
Also , the post re , creating mpas , no take zones , supported by Patagonia
Means they are kool-aide distributors , for profit
Feel - good politics selling false ideas with their clothes.

Re: Patagonia donates to antifa

Maybe they can sell Patagonia protest gear as a new clothing line.
You know , trendy combat boots with organic face masks that match your Patagonia hoodie
Emblazoned with a"protect fish first" logo theme .
Accessoried by a hemp backpack with a convenient solar panel to keep your I phone charged while bringing down capitalism and recording your adventures of blocking traffic.
In extreme measures the backpack can be placed over the head and be used as a gas mask. After all, anarchy never goes out of style.

Hate fueled Republican rallies need to be disrupted, especially in Berkeley. Those fools that showed up to that rally got what they deserved trying to spread their hate.

If you don't like Patagonia, don't buy it.

Good on you Slowboat for actually taking the time to do the research to find out the truth. Go a little further down that rabbit hole and you'll see what's really going on. Surface skipping haters will always hate.

Spreading their hate? Or opinions that differ from yours?

I've found with some folks, the two are the same in their eyes. In fact, many get so upset about someone having and (can you believe it?), voicing a different opinion, they'll happily result to violence to stop it.

As to Patagonia, years ago I met a couple of their execs while I was skiing in the back country. Had a very pleasant conversation until I mentioned that I hunt the same area we were skiing. They got so irate and even possessive of the area, that even though I can get their stuff at up to a 50% discount through my job, I won't buy anything with that label on it.

Re: Patagonia donates to antifa

Patagonia has been a sponsor of mine for many years. Their mission statment is one of the most progressive in the US. Yvon Chouinard founded "One percent for the planet". Why are you surprised that the company would donate to progressive causes?

To paraphrase what was said above: "if you don't like it, don't buy their products". I have known Yvon for nearly forty years. He is one of the most generous, selfless people I have ever known.

Re: Patagonia donates to antifa

I myself wouldn't have called funding an organization that promotes and organizes violent acts "progressive", but I guess different folks have different definitions of the word, "progressive".

Re: Patagonia donates to antifa

If you read the original post you will see that the money was not donated directly to the organization in question. For your information "progressive" means looking forward, as in working towards positive change. It does not mean violence, which is far more often seen coming from the right, not the left.

Both sides of the political spectrum have their extremists. The right wing seems to readily accept violence directed towards liberals and progressives, but not so much when the fin is on the other foot. Whats up with that?

You might want to back up those statements w/ some facts. BTW, I'm not on either side....but from my knowledge of history and such, you are incorrect.

Re: Patagonia donates to antifa

Patagonia ignores science and blindly pushes their enviro agenda on the public.

Old news but why would you support a company that boldly fought to limit your access to your resources?
