A Patriot Business Expressed Its First Amendment Rights, What Happened Next Is SHAMEFUL!

The outdoor brand Patagonia was founded by environmental activist Yvon Chouinard, but it plans on removing its product from a popular Jackson Hole Mountain Resort for one shocking reason in particular. Apparently, they are upset that the owner of the resort hosted a fundraiser for GOP lawmakers who are supporters of former President Donald Trump. Apparently, First Amendment rights only apply to liberals nowadays.

What was this fundraiser?

Jay Kemmerer is the owner of the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, and he co-sponsored a fundraiser on the 5th of August that was headlined by Congressional leaders such as Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Georgia), and former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, according to WyoFile.

Tickets to this “posh” fundraiser were sold for at least $2,000 per couple, and the event was meant to raise money for the House Freedom Fund.

The Jackson Hole News and Guide also noted that this fundraiser drew protesters, who threatened to reconsider buying any type of season pass or simply boycott the resort altogether.

The company announced last week that they were standing in solidarity with those who were protesting, and they pulled all of their product line from the resort.

“Those that know us in Jackson Hole are aware that we make business decisions and build relationships in alignment with our values and advocacy efforts,” Corley Kenna, head of communications and policy at Patagonia, told reporters in a statement. “We join with the local community that is using its voice in protest. We will continue to use our business to advocate for policies to protect our planet, support thriving communities, and a strong democracy.”

Kenna spoke with WyoFile last week, and she acknowledged that the Jackson Hole Resort remains “our largest customer in that area – and so that’s really critical.”

“That tells you something about the importance of this relationship. We don’t take ending it lightly,” Kenna explained. “This is very much about staying true to our strong feeling and our responsibility as a benefit corporation to stand up for and advance our priorities, our policies to protect our planet and our communities.”

Patagonia was doing some gaslighting here, and so they said that they would be willing to reverse their decision if the resort owners are willing to commit to “protecting the planet.”

Resort president Mary Kate Buckley issued a statement where she claimed that Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is already devoted to environmentally friendly practices.

“JHMR retail will continue to offer world-class brands across our retail locations with the aim to provide the best service and product assortment for our guests,” Buckley said. “We have been a leader in the ski industry in adopting initiatives to reduce our energy consumption, recycle the consumables used by our employees and guests, and treat the spectacular natural habitat which surrounds us with vision and care. “We are proud to be the largest mountain resort operating on 100% wind today,” the statement added. “We will remain focused on operating a world-class mountain resort and protecting the health and safety of our guests and employees.”
