Ford is launching a new line of apparel and merchandise as part of its Proud to Honor charitable program supporting members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families.

The military-inspired shirts, hats and gear are being sold to raise money for DAV, which provides assistance for disabled veterans, and the Blue Star Families organization that helps military families deal with the challenges posed by service to country.

“You can never do too much to honor the service of these brave men and women, and you never stop trying,” Ford's V.P. of U.S. marketing, sales and service, Mark LaNeve, said in a press release on the program.

I'm shocked! It's not a line of Black Lives Matter swag!

Bravo Ford!

—my liking for Ford increased immensely when the company refused to kowtow to the employee petition to not make “Interceptors” for the police market-

—just wish that they had then fired all those signing the petition—

Ford Motor Company and Ford Foundation are two separate entities.

The Tucker segment (on FOX last night — 8 SEP 2020), was/is exactly correct. It was outstanding.
No
The DOD and IC have long been the crown jewels, and absolutely necessary tools of the marxist globalist left to obtain sovereign societal control. They have been systematically targeted and taken over (from the top down).

The left absolutely had to fill them with marxist global governance friendly types and ideologues.

Like “liberation theology” was a hard left wing NKVD/KGB marxist means/trojan to brainwash ignorant churches goer’s across Latin America, and now churches across America, the related marxist derived social justice weapon (in the name of “civil rights”), is how America’s preeminent “institutions and weapons of war” are fundamentally being turned against all things American.

Hey, if American existence is pure evil — just saying...

As well, how can anyone fight for such an evil America...?

However, within our DOD/IC, the modern genesis was actually Bill Clinton’s forced, and yet somewhat cloaked anti-God/anti-American LGBTQ social justice indoctrination filter, which also quietly favored the quota. This was the well strategized trojan, backed up by soon-to-be punative regulations, recruits, and required for ascendancy.

Non-compliance and violation would, and does result in an ugly end to one’s career.

Mirroring what was strategized and happened in previous nations (like pre WWII Germany), where the strict inner circle of sodomite leadership at the top of its “national socialist” Command and Control — the global socialist DNC properly concluded they had to take over what we would refer to today as our C2, (Command & Control). Like the birth of NAZI Germany, where the German military, as well as the leadership of German police organizations, had to be filled with left-wing friendly advocates.

Once these were accomplished, for multiple reasons (to include self preservation), German industry and corporations couldn’t move fast enough to embrace their new left-wing national leadership, and to support their left wing military, and their left-wing police agency masters.

They even made it a point of NAZI-German pride.

Not saying this is Ford’s motivation here, as this piece is related to DAV.

However, broadly speaking, as our DOD becomes filled with more leftist, globalist, and populated with the truly racist social justice warrior ideologues, our globalist corporations will increasingly align.

The Ford Foundation was started by Edsel Ford and overseen
by him and other Ford Family members.

Today it may be far removed from the company, but it wasn’t
always so.

At the time Edsel was chairman of the board of Ford Motor
Company.

Thank you Ford... I’m in line for a new truck (my 2017 F350 is the oldest of my business partners. Except for 1 of the partners, we are Ford owners. The Chevy truck owner family owns a local Chevy dealership. One of my business partner retired after 25 years with one of the largestFord dealership in Florida. He started with the dealership at 16.

Ford is going broke. Let’s call this a hail mary to save the business.

Gee, what if we appeal to Americans?

Well, let’s see if they aren’t shamed out of this idea in a few days, or make another offer that matches BLM/LGBTQ or something.
