Didn't C-F-A fold and give in to the LGBTXYZ narratives?
Yep.
I think they've tried to avoid some controversy but they are still being boycotted.

Wait... what’s going on with MyPillow??

Most brilliant marketing strategy ever.

I’m thinking about ordering a half a million acrylic blankets and starting the MyBlanket company

Down filling sucks! You need to use much more comfortable polyurethane foam! Cheaper to make, but pay the same price as down! :lol:

Actually, I stayed at a friend's house down the shore, and he had those Giza cotton sheets. They were really nice. So we bought some of them. But the pillows? I just won't pay those prices for polyurethane foam.

I bought a Tempur-pedic pillow about 6-7 years ago. I loved it...then I found a bamboo pillow for $25. It's honestly the best pillow i've had and I take it with me if i'm sleeping out of town (except for my in-laws. I left the tempur-pedic pillow there).

Planned Parenthood Removes Margaret Sanger's Name

Okay, this is going to seem kinda upside down, but I disagree with PP, here.

If you view abortion is necessary and not immoral you should stand by the person that stood up for it when abortion was unspeakable and probably very unpopular and don't be spineless.

The point of pointing out that Sanger is a eugenicist is to show there shouldn't be double standards about what historical figures get a pass for their views on race, not that we ought to erase everyone with revolutionary ideas who also embraced ideas that offend our 21st century sensibilities.

Sanger set up PP for the direct purpose of aborting the undesirables like blacks, browns, and Joos out of existence.

Tues night Wisconsin: Democrat state senator attacked by BLM/ANTIFA protestors:
The unrest that unfolded Tuesday night began after 200 to 300 protesters marched through downtown Madison and escalated once they reached the state Capitol grounds. Some tried breaking into the Capitol building but were repelled by police inside with pepper spray...

... One protester was arrested after he allegedly went to a restaurant across the street from the Capitol with a baseball bat. The man, identified as Devenore Johnson, 28, spoke through a megaphone while walking around the establishment. He was arrested and was seen being carried by police to a squad car.

Others gathered near a condominium building and surrounded a tow truck, forcing the driver to abandon the vehicle. The crowd broke into buildings, and a Molotov cocktail was thrown into a city-county building. Windows at the Tommy Thompson Center, named for the former Republican governor, were smashed as well as lights at the Capitol.

Evers said there was “significant damage to state property.”

2 statues toppled-one of Civil War Col. Hans Christian Heg, who fought for the Union side and was an ardent abolitionist, and one of Wisconsin's motto, "Forward."

Wis National Guard called up yesterday.
So 2 'women', Samantha R. Hamer, 26, (right) and Kerida E. O’Reilly, 33, (left) have been arrested in the attack on what turned out to be a 60 yr old gay democrat state senator.
Image
.....The assault came as the mob was moving to topple two statues including Civil War abolitionist Hans Christian Heg and another of a female figure representing the state’s “Forward” motto.

In a video posted to his Twitter page, Sen. Tim Carpenter (D-Milwaukee) said he was punched and kicked in the head, neck and ribs.

The police had clear pictures of the two women.
Image
Samantha Hamer’s profile on the district’s official homepage (here) states that she assists “students and families who are struggling with social-emotional needs, behavioral issues, or environmental issues in the family, school and/or community.” According to reports, Hamer works as a licensed social worker for the Mount Horeb School District in suburban Madison and O’Reilly is a licensed physical therapist in Madison with a Doctorate in Physical Therapy program from Marquette University.

Hamer has been put on administrative leave by the Mount Horeb School System. This is a violent crime and thus the move was predictable.

Both women however also fall under licensing authority of the Department of Safety and Professional Services, which will now review their licenses for possible revocation.

One issue may be whether the concussion is treated as “serious” or “great” bodily harm under the statute. It is clearly a felony since bodily injury occurred but there is a distinction on the level of harm in terms of the level of felony under Wisconsin law...

My question is, what is causing all these educated millennial white women, who nationwide seem to be a disproportionate # of the protesters, or more than you would expect, to go batshit crazy?

For those of you not from/near the SC and GA coasts, Gullah people are African Americans that settled in those coastal towns and on the sea islands. They are Gullah people, also known as Geechee. There is nothing derogatory about them. Geechee comes from a river in Georgia. Nobody really knows where Gullah came from, some suspect it's derived from Angola - where the Africans came from.

There's a market and mill in Edisto, SC called "Geechie Boy.' It was the owners nickname and since the selling the company, it's still called that. You can buy stone ground grits, corn flower, etc.. It's owned by a white family. I just learned that SJWs are harassing this man to rename the company b/c Geechee is offensive. We asked a black chef we know (who is supposedly an expert on southern cooking) and says it is - but admits he has no idea what Geechee is or where it comes to. :roll:
Spoiler: show
Btw - this guy has no problem getting a degree from Ole Miss for free, simply b/c he's black and using his race in negotiating his salary.
These SJWs have gone so far as to send him hand written letters threatening his life and his children's. The guy has too much inventory to rename and is thinking about selling.

This is total crap. I'm going to make the assumption that these fucks are white who has no clue about the history of the word and name and are just attacking a white man for having a company with a black past. I hope these SJWs get arrested.

They will not (unfortunately). They are bored, pampered, self-absorbed, idiots that want something to believe in or follow, in order to feel needed/important.
