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.
NO MURDER CHARGES: Fired Detective Brett Hankinson Receives Indictment for Wanton Endangerment, No Officers are Charged for the Death of Breonna Taylor
On September 23, 2020, Jefferson County Judge Annie O’Connell announced that fired detective Brett Hankinson will be indicted on three counts of wanton endangerment for his actions on the night of Breonna Taylor’s death.
Hankison had previously admitted to shooting blindly. Some of those shots were fired into neighboring apartments not into Breonna Taylor’s where her boyfriend had opened fire onto police.
Myles Cosgrove and Jonathan Mattingly, the other two officers involved in a serving a search warrant on the night that Taylor was killed, did not receive any charges.
The city of Louisville was placed under a state of emergency on September 22, when city officials shutdown a significant portion of the city perimeter to traffic. The majority of administrative building and other businesses were boarded up prior to the decision. Louisville has been rocked by riots related to Taylor’s death in March. These riots have been occurring for over 100 days and have resulted in a number of deaths and heated confrontations with law enforcement.
Starting on the night of September 23, there will be a 72-hour curfew in Louisville. The curfew will not apply to people partaking in essential travel, which includes work-related purposes or medical attention. Kentucky National Guard members will be deployed to the city for the purpose of maintaining public order.
Given the indictment doesn’t match the BLM demands of murder charges for all officers involved, such precautionary measures are necessary to quell potential unrest coming from the Left. Since May, radical leftists have taken advantage of controversial police actions to tear up property and cause mayhem across the country. An incident like Taylor’s death is most assuredly being politicized by the Left and will likely fuel further disturbances across the nation.
Conservatives and nationalists should make it a point to promote healthy debate, while establishing a baseline of public security, to ensure that the country does not spiral further out of control in such times of instability.
