Outdoor clothing company Patagonia has been a major player in the so-called #Resistance to President Donald Trump. Now the company’s anti-Trump campaign finds Patagonia’s founder disparaging Trump voters as “rednecks.”

According to a story in youngcons.com:
Yvon Chouinard, founder of the outdoor clothing company and a major environmentalist nutcase, took the time to slam Trump’s voters in a recent interview, Daily Caller reports.
“Why should we kowtow to these redneck voters and Republican politicians?” Chouinard said to OutsideOnline. “The most you can achieve is a compromise, and that never solves a problem.”
Chouinard’s attack was highlighted on Twitter by Steve Everley:
The founder of “socially responsible” Patagonia actually said this https://www.outsideonline.com/2201581/big-business-resist …
Well, that’s the way to influence people, eh? Call them names and disparage their intelligence! Yeah, that’ll convince people to join the envirowacko movement, won’t it?
Everley went on to ridicule Patagonia’s hypocrisy.

This is nothing exactly new about Patagonia, though. The company has made it clear that it stands against Republicans in general and Trump in particular.
in June, for instance, the extremely liberal company made a major announcement that it intended to “resist” Donald Trump.
As I wrote on Breitbart on June 18:
Patagonia CEO Rose Marcario recently attacked President Trump for his statements about rolling back President Obama’s unusually aggressive campaign of confiscating millions of acres of state lands and claiming them as “national monuments.”
“We have to fight like hell to keep every inch of public land,” Marcario said in a May article at Huffpost. “I don’t have a lot of faith in politics and politicians right now.”
In an effort to prevent citizens from retaking possession of their state lands, one of her immediate actions will be to sue the Trump administration for its efforts to scale back Obama’s unprecedented land grab.
“A president does not have the authority to rescind a national monument,” Marcario said in an April 26 statement after Trump announced his national monuments order. “An attempt to change the boundaries ignores the review process of cultural and historical characteristics and the public input.”
So, the company has a long history of working against the voters and looking to give unbridled power to the government.
