Goodyear has been receiving some heat on social media and most recently from President Donald Trump after an employee shared a photo of a slide appearing to show the company’s new zero-tolerance policy, saying it’s “discriminatory.” The photo shows a slide that the employee said was presented during diversity training at the Topeka plant but that was provided by the company’s headquarters in Akron, Ohio.
The photo of the slide, which appears to be a Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company slide, lists what’s acceptable and not acceptable under their zero-tolerance policy. Under acceptable, there’s “Black Lives Matter (BLM) and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Pride (LGBT).” Under unacceptable, there’s “Blue Lives Matter, All Lives Matter, MAGA Attire and Political Affiliated Slogans or Material.”
Don’t buy GOODYEAR TIRES – They announced a BAN ON MAGA HATS. Get better tires for far less! (This is what the Radical Left Democrats do. Two can play the same game, and we have to start playing it now!).

This is another illegal Tweet from the President. He’s single-handedly attacking a US company because they don’t “Heil” him.

Donald Trump plunges headlong into cancel culture.
I thought Donald Trump, as a supposedly wise business executive, would realize that some companies seek to reduce tensions by barring employees from wearing partisan things to work.
