I do not think it is new, but it is certainly repulsive as far as I am concerned. Using the American flag to sell products annoys me as well. It is not for patriotic reasons, but for commercial purposes.

The last time I was in Walmart (which was the LAS TIME I ever enter Walmart) they were playing diversity and tolerance horseshit announcements on the PA system. I was down to only buying their cheap cat litter anyway. I can get crappy service and bad attitudes anywhere.

I don't see 'wokeness' going away anytime soon. Wondering just how long can this last.

I dunno how long this craziness will last. I am sick and tired of getting emails from this company. I have asked-as of today-three times for them to stop, to unsubscribe me, and all to no avail.

So, today, I did something I very, very rarely do-I blistered their hind sides with an email. No profanity, but it was not a pleasant email.

I seriously doubt I'll get anymore emails from them.

I'm wondering if you sent them a email or letter with your honest concerns, what they would do.

Especially if you asked them "do you feel George Floyds life, a criminal who was on fentanyl, is more important than the little 5 year old boy recently murdered? Because you talk about Floyd but not innocent 5-year-old Cannon Hinnant. Why is that?

I sent them a short, to the point email. I told the I loved their products but it is a bad idea to mix business and politics. I will no longer buy their socks due to their support of the Marxist attack on our country. It’s been a week. Crickets. They do not care. Get woke, go broke.

I believe they're located in Vermont. Hmmmm Vermont the home of Crazy Bernie and Loony Leheah also Ben & Jerrys commie ice cream. I'd suggest if you go there don't drink the water.

I ain't never been there and I ain't never going.

The only good news is that they must have understood my email unlike all the :unsubscribes" I did as they have not sent me an email since the day I sent the sorta rude email to them.

I am so happy never to hear from those woke ones again.

I sent them a letter also about a week back, no response. They don't care.

I was a big Best Buy customer and fan, but I got an e-mail from them with similar crappe flowing. I immediately became a former Best Buy customer and unsubscribed from their e-mails. Another of the many companies that have become dead to me due to their wokeness.


Retired!

Ever been to Vermont?? It's a beautiful state. But after you're there awhile you realize they are very anti big business and commerce is pretty much Mom& Pop type stores. Which is fine if you don't mind paying outrageous prices for things like food. I was there and asked where a Costco was. Guy laughed and said everyone shops in New Hampshire. Sure enough we had to go to N.H. to any kind of decent shopping. It's a weird state. You get tired of all the "natural" crap after awhile. The state doesn't seem to want anything new there. But they sure don't mind taxing the public. Very high taxes. Stay away from Vermont.

Besides the Vermont attitude towards big business that you described, that's also because NH doesn't have sales tax. So everyone from Vermont, southwestern Maine, and northern Massachussets drives over to New Hampshire for their big shopping trips. The borders just inside NH are littered with big shopping malls, strips malls, and outlet malls.

Well, I'm happy. Apparently my rather rude (but not nasty) email worked and they finally, after several times trying to get them to unsubscribe me jolted them into doing just that.

I just am not going to knowingly give my $ to those so-called woke businesses.

I mean....I like their socks, I wear their socks, and it seems every company feels obligated to jump on the SJW train these days, but sheesh.
