The left is now on a mission to shame businesses with ties not only to gun manufacturers, but with the NRA.
First Bank of Omaha was first:
Customer feedback, huh?
Seems there is a concerted effort by liberal activists to force businesses to make a choice for their fascist views and against groups who protect Constitutional rights. Seems as though First Bank chose the fascists. Most likely, these “customers” were probably not customers at all.
Enterprise, National and Alamo have all decided to end their discounts for NRA members.
I used to use Enterprise Rental Car for years. They helped me once when I needed to rent a car in a bad situation where another car company wouldn’t. I have been loyal for over a decade because I thought they cared.
And yet, for whatever reason, the company has chosen to side with the lies and dishonesty of the left against an organization that bears no responsibility to any shootings and supports the rights of every American citizen.
What they are saying is that the NRA, and their members, are unworthy of discounts or preferred treatment, even though NRA customers are extremely loyal. And most likely, the people doing the complaining are people who aren’t regular customers anyway.
And this is a lesson that weak companies ultimately learn: It’s not just NRA members that will stop using their services, but those who see this as a company bowing to groups who do not have the customer’s best interest in mind.
When a company like Enterprise, or First Bank of Omaha make that choice, there will be consequences of customers exercising their choices. If you alienate one segment of your customer base, it means you will have no trouble doing the same whenever it is politically convenient. Do you want to be a group that all of a sudden loses preferential treatment simply because you have a different political view than the left?
And so will stockholders who may want the company leadership to not make such hasty decisions.
As they say, though, it’s a free country and there are plenty of other businesses who believe in the fundamental Constitutional rights of its customers.
With that, I will be booking my business elsewhere.
Metlife and Symantec have chosen to listen to the fascists on the left:
