America First Republican Calls Out Woke Companies for Discriminating Against Conservatives
President Donald Trump was joined last week by a number of Republicans who called out Goodyear for their discriminatory policy of banning employees from wearing “MAGA” and “Blue Lives Matter” attire at their workplace. Images being circulated across the Internet prompted this outrage.
Goodyear claimed that the slide listing the acceptable and unacceptable attire was not made by the company in a subsequent statement in which it addressed the controversy.
The present encouraged people not to buy the company’s tires after the company considered MAGA hats “unacceptable” during a diversity training session. “Don’t buy GOODYEAR TIRES – They announced a BAN ON MAGA HATS. Get better tires for far less,” Trump Tweeted.
One of the most outspoken Republicans against this alleged ban was Texas Congressman Lance Gooden.
He described it as “political discrimination.”
A number of other Republicans also spoke out against the alleged ban. Texas Congressman Lance Gooden called it “political discrimination.”

Gooden then provided a statement to Newsweek where he stated that “Goodyear’s policies suppressing the views of conservative employees must not be tolerated. It’s a gross restriction of political speech and I call on them to eliminate this disturbing political indoctrination from their employee training.”
Gooden has been a loyal ally to the America First agenda. Not too long ago, he signed on to a letter with a number of House and Senate members such as Matt Gaetz, Paul Gosar, Josh Hawley, Tom Cotton, and Ted Cruz, where they called on President Trump to halt most forms of legal migration during the Wuhan virus pandemic.
Gooden understands the true scope of the cultural war and unlike milquetoast Republicans, he is ready to confront the radical Left.
More congressmen in the GOP should follow Gooden’s example.
