Tom Cotton Delivers Stunning Statement to Woke CEO Which Should Stand as an Example to All GOP Senators and Represenatives

Albertson's and Kroger want to merge. They're being grilled about that in Congress, chiefly by Democrats, who don't like any companies ever merging.

Kroger is an extremely woke corporation which compels its employees to support specific Woke Cult Doctrines.

The Kroger Company, a supermarket giant, published an "allyship guide" that told employees to use "inclusive language," celebrate transgender holidays, and even support an organization that bails violent criminals out of prison.

The allyship guide, intended for employees and published in 2021, is split into four different sections, titled "LGBTQ+," "Asian American Pacific Islander," "African American," and "Hispanic Heritage."

The guide says that allies should "lead by example and prove to be fierce advocates" and defines the term as "anyone who publicly declares support for and advocates on behalf of LGBT rights."

"Some people's morality can be a barrier to accepting LGBTQ+ people," the guide read. It went on to say that, though the company cannot decide an individual's values for them, "a company has values that they expect employees to follow."

The guide provided a vocabulary list of various terms associated with the LGBTQ+ movement, including "non-binary," "queer," transgender," "cisgender," and "pansexual," which it defined as "someone who is physically or emotionally attracted to all genders."

Included on a list titled "language to avoid" were the terms "boyfriend/girlfriend" and "husband/wife." The guide told employees to "avoid if you do not know the gender of the partner/spouse." Employees are also supposed to abstain from asking transgender people "any pre-transition questions such as asking for old pictures or inquiring about the person's old name."

The guide even suggests that employees refrain from referring to customers with language like "sir" or "ma'am."

It also argued that gender and sex were distinct before going on to discuss those who identify as "non-binary." It defined the term as "a person who does not identify exclusively as a man or woman."

"Non-binary people may identify as being both a man and a woman, somewhere in between, or as falling completely outside these categories," the guide read. It then listed some "gender expansive terms," such as "genderfluid," "genderqueer," and "enby."

One slide, titled "The Importance of Pronouns," admonished its employees, saying "It is a privilege to not have to worry about which pronoun someone is going to use for you based on how they perceive your gender. If you have this privilege, yet fail to respect someone else's gender identity, it is not only disrespectful and hurtful, but also oppressive."

It also informed them that they may be asked to use newly invented pronouns like "Ze/hir" while others do not want to use any pronouns whatsoever.

"When someone is referred to with the wrong pronoun, it can make them feel disrespected, invalidated, dismissed, alienated, or dysphoric," the guide contended.

Several "notable awareness dates" were listed in the guide, including five different annual celebrations dedicated to people with gender dysphoria.

Employees were encouraged to celebrate "International Non-Binary People's Day," "International Transgender Day of Visibility," "Pansexual Visibility," "Transgender Awareness Week," "Trans Parent Day," "Transgender Day of Remembrance" and several other faux holidays that have recently been manufactured for political purposes.

Kroger created a bib which had a rainbow emblem on the collar under the words "Our Promise." Religious employees believed the rainbow was a reference to the rainbow flag of the LGBT movement.


When religious employees asked for a conscience exemption to wearing the Gay Pride Bib, Kroger refused. When they asked for the very reasonable compromise that they be permitted to wear their nametags over the rainbow patch to cover it up, Kroger still refused.

Then they fired the employees for acting according to their religious faith and refusing to spread the Corporate Religious Cult Doctrine.

The employees sued and Kroger had to settle for $180,000.

Kroger has agreed to pay $180,000 to settle a lawsuit that involved two employees who say they were fired for refusing to wear LGBT-themed aprons due to their religious beliefs.

The lawsuit was filed on behalf of the women by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) in the final months of the Trump administration. The EEOC is a bipartisan commission that includes appointees of both President Biden and former President Donald Trump.

...

As part of the settlement, Kroger will pay $180,000 and "create a religious accommodation policy and provide enhanced religious discrimination training to store manage­ment," EEOC said.

"The EEOC commends Kroger on its decision to create a policy describing the process for requesting a religious accommodation," said Faye A. Williams, regional attorney of the EEOC's Memphis district office. "This policy will provide guidelines for requesting religious accommodation. The parties in the case worked in good faith to resolve this matter, and the Commission is pleased with the resolution."

The apron depicted a "rainbow-colored heart emblem on the bib," and the two employees believed that wearing it would "violate their religious beliefs," the EEOC said.

One woman "offered to wear the apron with the emblem covered, and the other offered to wear a different apron without the emblem, but the company made no attempt to accommodate their requests," the EEOC said.

The Breitbart article states that Kroger "denied the allegations" -- I take that to mean they denied the claim that the rainbow symbol was intended to show support for LGBT crap, and they were forcing religious people to support LGBT crap against their religious conscience.

But... um...

That photo is by Getty Images, and appeared with the Breitbart article quoted above.

Are you certain your rainbow is not a reference to pride, Kroger?

Note the "PRIDE" Rainbow appears on the cover of Kroger's "Allyship Guide."

Senator Hawley asked Kroger's woke CEO about this lawsuit.

Preposterously - ridiculously - absurdly - perjuriously - he claimed not to know enough of the details to even dare a guess of an answer.

krogerceo.jfif

Now Tom Cotton says he's all broken-hearted that the woke Kroger CEO is being beaten up by his Good Democratic Friends, and finds it necessary to reach out to Deplorable Republicans to ask for help.

Every fucking Republican needs to memorize this answer, and deploy it constantly:

Best of luck to woke business, enjoy Lizzie Warren.

I'm a conservative and now I fucking hate big biz. suck it. You're now the real fascists working with libs to microtribalize the nation and the world.

79 Our local Krogers are always filthy. Trash in the parking lots, the shelves and aisles a mess. I only go to the one nearest me occasionally to get fuel points.

80 Employees were encouraged to celebrate "International Non-Binary People's Day," "International Transgender Day of Visibility," "Pansexual Visibility," "Transgender Awareness Week," "Trans Parent Day," "Transgender Day of Remembrance" and several other faux holidays that have recently been manufactured for political purposes.

So do Kroger employees get those days as paid company holidays? If not, why not? Shouldn't the company lead by example?

Same here. I go there sometimes just to avoid giving Wal-Mart all my business, but the Kroger's is in a poor location, it's too small to easily navigate, and there's never enough lanes open.

Can't say I won't go there again, though, because Wal-Mart is just as bad on the political messaging. Oh well, there's always Dollar General. (for now)

83 One of my favorite questions from one of my econ professors:

What is one thing wrong with the general assumptions of economics?

I got full marks for pointing out that assuming people maximize benefit to themselves was a faulty assumption. Sometimes, people will accept harm in order to hurt their enemies.

This is where we must be now. I don't care if it costs me, so long as I make it cost them more. HURT THEM, over and over again until they stop trying to harm me and my family.

101 I doubt I'll get my point across effectively, but I'm still amazed at the current realignment happening in our country. The former perceived foundations of conservatism (free markets, strong military) have been perverted to such a degree that people like myself were often defending corporations as paragons of a free market system.

More light shed had not been a good thing for these institutions, and I believe this is apparent in the lack of reflexive defensiveness by conservatives in support of big business or military intervention as a first resort.

Buy wholesale goods and products and make your own bread, your own soaps, etc. Maybe learn to grow your own vegetables and if you have space, grow some yard birds or rabbits, or team up with like minded folks who do.

That's how it always works, without exception in the modern era. A big corp does something wrong and gets sued.

158 Big Government, led by Ds and Rs, impose so many regulations and requirements that no small businesses can compete with the large corporations. And the big businesses have loved that, and gladly made the Ds happy by implementing Woke Madness. What did the Rs get in return? Some campaign contributions. Nothing that helped their voters, but stuff that did help the R politicians.

Now they're finally seeing the end game. Big Government is going to come for the survivors like Kroger and bleed them dry. The Ds love this. They feel it's their fair share. Kroger's hurt, because they thought these politicians were bought. And I'm supposed to care?

Two things can happen at the same time.

Most CEOs these days are dumb, and have no knowledge of what their company actually does. They're hired on the basis of having previously been a CEO, regardless of results.

Apple famously almost went bankrupt in the 90s due in part to a CEO whose previous experience was being the CEO of Pepsi. Software company Electronic Arts went downhill after hiring a CEO from Sara Lee (the baked goods company). There's tons of examples.

In an address about "standing up for gender-affirming care," Ladinsky eulogized Leelah Alcorn, an Ohio 17-year-old who, in Ladinsky’s words, "stepped boldly in front of a tractor trailer, ending her life," in 2014, after leaving a suicide note that "went viral, literally around the world."

I won't go out of my way to offend, but I damn well shouldn't have to acquiesce to those who go out of their way to offend me.

This issue goes beyond religions with a deity; this goes to intentional offense against personal liberty by secularists.

304 “Office” Star Won’t Show Series to Her Own Kids (Maybe Never)

Mindy Kaling played a sizable role in making “The Office” one of the best sitcoms of the modern era.

Kaling co-starred in the ensemble comedy, co-wrote two episodes of the award-winning show and served as an executive producer. Now, she has some regrets about her game-changing contributions.

“That show is so inappropriate now … the writers who I’m still in touch with now, we always talk about how so much of that show we probably couldn’t make now. Tastes have changed, and honestly what offends people has changed so much now.”

Then they want to "burn it down" because they're too Fuukin lazy to get on the field and outwork the Democrats. Even worse, they're led by insidious, dumb, unimaginative and untalented people like Rona McDaniel, who had her fat, flabby, smelly ass handed to her the last two elections, and 168 GOP members that vote for her think that's just swell. You know, an incompetent buffoon that runs the same old playbook over and over again (that someone else invented) and she doesn't have the mental capacity or fortitude to change it. Same with the 168 Vichy GOPers who voted for her. Oh, but "Trump likes her". Well there's the gold standard. Lol.

They went for corporate cash because they are now 'acceptable'. Look for salaries to climb, overhead to increase, and services to the actual poor to decrease. It is the way of NGO's and once the Army abandoned 'faith' by bending a knee to the secular world, the faithful leave or never join and the corrupt take over and turn the organization into grifting as their purpose.

This is a form of "need to be updated for today's audience."

Question: if "today's audience" demands all the woke nonsense, why does woke programming fail so consistently, especially when it isn't attached to a mega-property like Marvel? If this is what audiences are demanding, why is there so little success to be found for TV shows and movies created to serve that audience?

Second question: to what do you attribute your apparent failure to cater to "today's audience?" Is it because you misread the audience's desires and thus someone else with the same parameters would be successful, or is it because you suck and making movies and TV shows, and someone else with the same parameters would be successful?

No, you simply find the same losing tactics by GOP 'strategists'. Using national carbon copy ads, campaign mailers, robocalling, etc. None of those work as well as people on the ground knocking on doors but GOTV does not pay consultants big commissions so the loser GOP campaign politicos ignore it.
That is a separate issue than voter fraud and the easy way to shut that down is specifically eliminate any real time access to voter registration lists after the sixty days is up by anything other than pollworkers or legal authorities and they should be locked out from making changes. Second, a lot of restrictions on mail in ballots plus auditing that does not allow something like 1000 ballots to be sent to an address.
Clearing voter registration lists is another issue plus every suspected polling place should have undercover cops placed in tabulation rooms and precincts. You simply do not get 100 percent voter participation genuinely. Target those precincts first.

Youth suicide indicates something being desperately wrong, and it's been surging up for more than a decade.

Posted by: Joe Mannix (Not a cop!) at December 07, 2022 01:06 PM


Coincident with the push to gayify the youth. The stats are 10X 'background/normies' rate of suicide for gays. 40X 'background/normies' rate of suicide for the trans.

But try to set up a medical practice to un-gay someone and see what happens.

These kids have been programmed to believe in a dystopian future for well over thirty years where the climate literally bakes them to a crisp. At the same time, families such as they were, have become even more broken, illegitimacy has become a norm, and schools have become indoctrination centers for hate focused on 'normies' and designed to infuse them with guilt.

The left simply put are monsters or lizard people that try to hammer the standing nail down. Sensitive kids are the most affected to being ostracized, internalizing guilt not deserved, and envisioning the future. Without faith in something bigger, they are lost.

438 Whether this is intentional or not, its satanic. The rainbow is God's promise to us. Not Kroger's queer promise to its customers. At best, this is blasphemous.

One day they are going to have to stand tall before The Man and explain this, and they will have no words.

I doubt Kroger has spent significant money bribing GOPs. The current crop of WOKE executives hates them, and it isn't like there's any pushback.

Despite the claims of the pro-death crowd people actually fighting serious diseases tend to want to live on. Kevorkian preyed on moody loners he could argue into letting him kill them, many didn't really have terminal conditions and there was at least one case asserted that the victim changed their mind and K killed them anyhow.

473 I work for a nationwide retail chain. In the 8 years I've been there I've never been ordered to wear rainbows. I've never been asked to wear rainbows. I don't think anyone else at my store has, either. I think at some point i might have had to read some milquetoast "harassment policy" notice on a computer and click here to agree. I've never heard any LBGTQ "community leader" complain about my store or the entire chain or make us have a struggle session. I don't think the CEO or the Board of Directors are woke. I do think they're being extorted, though, by LBGTQ Inc. They might think that's cheaper than telling them to piss off, but I disagree. A million dollar donation to LBGTQ Inc. is a million not spent on a new electric pallet jack, or batteries for my handheld printer, or unclogging the shitter in the men's room or....
