Yeti Responds to the NRA Lynch Mob in Email saying they Support the Second Amendment

In a collective freakout from morons like Dana Loesch and her Steroid Freak Hipster Husband, the Lynch mob went into overdrive this weekend with threats of boycotts because supposedly Yeti Coolers now hates gun owners.

YETI

So what really happened?

Well, the dipshits who make a living off of pushing other dipshits into a hysterical frenzy started crying like a bunch of hypersensitive pussies because Yeti Coolers ended a legacy vendor program that just happened to include the NRA.

Of course, dumbshits like Dana Loesch and her hipster Husband went online to drum up more publicity for themselves — because they really don’t care about the second amendment, this is all just to make themselves famous — with threats of a boycott.

I know; some mentally unstable idiots are going to have a meltdown because I dared to say something about the NRA and their paper tigress Dana Loesch — maybe the hero worshipers should look into her past as a pro-abortion, Anti-gun, Democrat Operative before blindly following people who change their shtick when they realize there is more money in tricking conservatives into thinking you are one of them.

Frankly, I’m about as fed up with the NRA as I am with the losers on the left.

Not supporting the NRA doesn’t make you Anti-Gun; in fact, I DON’T SUPPORT THE NRA — I think they are a bunch of greedy pussies who stopped carrying about gun owners long ago, I would rather give my money and my support to a real gun organization like Gun Owners of America instead of the phonies over at the NRA who bow down to the anti-gun left and help push things like the Bump Stock Ban.

So is YETI Coolers Anti-gun?

If they are, I don’t see it. They may have stopped a Legacy Vendor Program that just happened to include the NRA, but so far they have said nothing against the second amendment or against gun owners. In fact, a great number of the people they sponsor are pro-gun, hunters and sportsmen. Here is a response from one of them…

 

If YETI comes out and says they don’t support the Second Amendment, then I would pull my support for YETI, but when we start blindly following every idiotic protest and overreacting without the facts we become no better than the Anti-Gun left and all their hyperbolic bullshit!

YETI’s Official Statement

A few weeks ago, YETI® notified the NRA Foundation, as well as a number of other organizations, that we were eliminating a group of outdated discounting programs.

When we notified the NRA Foundation and the other organizations of this change, YETI explained that we were offering them an alternative customization program broadly available to consumers and organizations, including the NRA Foundation.

These facts directly contradict the inaccurate statement the NRA-ILA distributed on April 20 2018.

Further, the NRA-ILA stated in that same public communication that “[YETI has] declined to continue helping America’s young people enjoy outdoor recreational activities.” Nothing is further from the truth.

YETI was founded more than 10 years ago with a passion for the outdoors, and over the course of our history we have actively and enthusiastically supported hunters, anglers and the broader outdoor community. We have been devoted to and will continue to directly support causes tied to our passion for the outdoors, including by working with many organizations that promote conservation and management of wildlife resources and habitat restoration.

From our website to our film footage and from our social media posts to our ambassadors, YETI has always prominently featured hunters pursuing their passions. Moreover, YETI is unwavering in our belief in and commitment to the Constitution of the United States and its Second Amendment.

    Bravo, and thank you! I thought I was the only one who couldn’t stand that bar hag/nra spokeshag. My faith in humanity is restored that at least one person can see through that BS. This is why we lose elections, because we allow people like Loesch to hijack the conservative message for here own fame. how quickly people forget that just a year ago she helped start the never-trump movement and was willing to let Hillary get elected.

    They happen to end a “legacy program” at an odd time didnt they? They could have looked a bit at the political climate before ending the relashionship and they would have saved themselves a lot of headaches.

      It also seems like they could have saved themselves some headaches by providing advanced notice and explaining why they were ending the program.

        Possibly, but sadly we live in a world where both sides now seem so unbalanced and willing to jump into the mob of hatred that they are pretty much screwed no matter what they do. It could be that the program was a profit loss for them; unfortunately that doesn’t matter once the lynchmob jumps in.

    Seems a bit odd that you castigate the NRA crowd as going off the rails in being critical of YETI’s decision, yet at the same time I don’t see much information here that supports Yeti. Did Yeti notify the NRA in advance of this decision? When was this choice to end these Legacy programs? Was this explanation offered in RESPONSE to the widespread criticism of dropping the NRA, or was this the plan all along?

    Seems that YOUR tirade is just ‘off the rails’ as though you are criticizing. Pot v Kettle, IMO.

    And, fwiw, I’m less than happy with the NRA myself given their decision to play with congress regarding the furthering of ‘Risk protection orders’ which we all know will NOT diminish gun crims (Can anyone say WAFFLE HOUSE?), but WILL run the threat of anti-gun zealots falsely accusing law abiding gun owners in order to create havoc in the lives of people who actually pose no threat. Nonetheless, I’m not convinced that–given our current political climate and the recent actions of Delta, Citi-Bank among many others to force people into siding against the NRA–this isn’t a political reactionary move largely guided by political correctness and possible pressure from anti-gun groups.

    Time will hopefully reveal the truth.

      Well from YETI’s offical statement which is above in the article, YES they did and they gave them an alternative program option — that hardly sounds like they pulled their support. This is nothing but a couple of phony conservative personalities trying to make themselves more famous at the expense of a company that has every right to change a marketing program if it’s not profitable — that and the NRA trying to drum up fundraising dollars.

    Funny that the response from Yeti only came after the immense backlash. I think we all know what happened and they regretted it instantly.

    And as I read their explanation I get the “and what the hell does this paragraph even mean?” kind of feeling. It doesn’t say they support the NRA, which could have been much easier …..if they truly do. Looks like backpedaling to me.

      They said the support the second amendment you retard… who gives a shit if they support the NRA. The NRA doesn’t support the 2nd amendment and pisses on us every chance they get so screw the NRA

        I am the retard yet my post never mentions that they pulled support for the second amendment, or that I was concerned about their support of the second amendment.

        I give a shit if they pulled their support in the wake of recent events, and I get to do that whether you like my position or not. Sounds like you either have a bone to pick with the NRA, or you are a diehard Yeti supporter, or both. Either way I don’t care what you think of the NRA or Yeti.

        I know this is going to hurt your feelings but I don’t give two shits how you feel about either. Did I melt the edge of your little snowflake?

          Looks like the GOA guy is dissing the NRA guy, because that is what you are supposed to do, oppose someone if you are in another organization who competes for members. Just stupid. If we all stuck together we’d be better off. I am in both!

    The NRA needs NEW leadership that REALLY work to keep our freedoms! Not just a bunch of Money grubbing sell-outs like Wayne Lapierre and his second in command, Chris Cox.
    They are negotiating our freedoms away one at a time.

    While I agree that the NRA has done some things lately that does not bode well for gun owners your visceral hatred for the organization is so apparent to make your assessment not credable.

    if ti was a LEGACY program then it was bound to be pulled sometime, hence the title LEGACY, like a windows 3.1 system or 95/98 is a LEGACY system and they aren’t around anymore either.

    I have to agree with 2Cents. All the “sportsman” groups need to stand together and watch each other’s backs or we will all be brought down. United we stand – divided we fall… As far as the NRA – I have been a member most of my life, but not currently. They have done a lot to preserve our rights as gun owners, but it seems like the last couple years they haven’t done much but ask for more contributions. What has GOA done – politically or otherwise, to help gun owners? As far as Yeti – they make fine coolers, but they are no better than at least 3 other brands that make just as good, maybe even better ones for less than half the price.

    Thank you for writing this, it’s about time someone actually told the truth about how Anti-Gun the NRA really is. Every single piece of gun control legislation that has passed, passed the NRA backing.

    Great Article!!! Glad to see someone understands that the only true gun rights organization is the GOA not the NRA who pisses on us every chance they get. 100% agree with everything you said and thank you for writing it, it really is sad how many morons we have on the right who do everything they are told by some dumbass radio shockjocks.

      I will put my experience up against yours Dan but of course Marine with four tours in Nam and over seventy years of life probably does not give me the right to challenge your knowledge and experience.
