Levi’s jeans joins the anti-gun Left

Levi jeans are often associated with gun-toting cowboys in the minds of consumers.

Now, Levi jeans have gone full-blown anti-gun.

In November 2016, the CEO of Levi Strauss & Co., the corporate owner of Levi jeans, virtue-signaled in an open letter on LinkedIn, asking that gun owners not bring firearms into Levi stores, offices, or facilities, even in states where it’s permitted by law.

Now, in a Sept. 4, 2018 op/ed in Fortune, CEO Charles “Chip” Bergh declares himself a believer in all the false-flag shootings from Sandy Hook to Parkland, and the company Levi Strauss a supporter for “gun violence prevention”.

Bergh begins by saying that he and his company were attacked after his 2016 open letter, “But these personal attacks pale in comparison to the threats that activists and survivors from Parkland, Sandy Hook, and daily incidents of gun violence face every time they speak up on this issue.”

Then Bergh describes why Levi Strauss is “stepping up” its support for “gun violence prevention”:

As president and CEO of a values-driven company that’s known the world over as a pioneer of the American West and one of the great symbols of American freedom, I take the responsibility of speaking up on the important issues of our day very seriously. We can’t take on every issue. But as business leaders with power in the public and political arenas, we simply cannot stand by silently when it comes to the issues that threaten the very fabric of the communities where we live and work. While taking a stand can be unpopular with some, doing nothing is no longer an option.

That’s why Levi Strauss & Co. is stepping up our support for gun violence prevention. You may wonder why a company that doesn’t manufacture or sell guns is wading into this issue, but for us, it’s simple. Americans shouldn’t have to live in fear of gun violence….

I know that Americans, including many of our own consumers, employees, and other partners, hold a wide spectrum of views related to guns. I’m not here to suggest we repeal the Second Amendment or to suggest that gun owners aren’t responsible. In fact, as a former U.S. Army officer, I took a solemn oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States. But as retired four-star general Michael Hayden once said, “There are some weapons out there that frankly nobody should have access to. And actually, there are some people out there who should never have access to any weapons.”

Levi Strauss is supporting “gun violence prevention” in three ways:

  1. By establishing the Safer Tomorrow Fund, “which will direct more than $1 million in philanthropic grants from Levi Strauss & Co. over the next four years to fuel the work of nonprofits and youth activists [like Parkland’s David Hogg] who are working to end gun violence in America.”
  2. By “partnering with Everytown for Gun Safety and executives including Michael Bloomberg to form Everytown Business Leaders for Gun Safety, a coalition of business leaders who believe, as we do, that business has a critical role to play in and a moral obligation to do something about the gun violence epidemic in this country.”
  3. By doubling Levi Strauss’ “usual employee donation match to organizations aligned with our Safer Tomorrow Fund.”

Note: Everytown for Gun Safety, founded in 2014 and financed by Michael Bloomberg “to match the National Rifle Association in political influence,” is a non-profit that advocates for gun control.

Hollyweird hypocrite: Julianne Moore's latest film is full of gun violence


Shocker, right. Guess the pay was good for the hypocrite.
Kingsman: The Golden Circle is a Hollyweird movie that is due out on September 22. About the movie, from IMDb:
“When their headquarters are destroyed and the world is held hostage, the Kingsman’s journey leads them to the discovery of an allied spy organization in the US. These two elite secret organizations must band together to defeat a common enemy.”
The movie stars Julianne Moore who is a rabid anti-Second Amendment elite. She participated in the “Demand a plan to end gun violence” video that bodyguard-protected celebrities created in December 2012.
As Dr. Eowyn reported in January 2015, Moore is a gun-control pro-abortion atheist. From Dr. Eowyn’s post:
“…she (Moore) doesn’t want for strong opinions and has drawn angry responses to her tweets in favor of Planned Parenthood and gun control. “I get more reactions on Twitter about gun safety than anything else,” she says. “I don’t understand how we’re threatening the Second Amendment because we’re talking about gun safety rules. That, to me, is really shocking.”
…Turbulence is not unknown to her; she acknowledges that a peripatetic childhood left its share of instability, and she returns over and over to the theme of impermanence. She says she doesn’t believe in God and has a strong sense that meaning is imposed on a chaotic world.
In October 2015, Moore joined forces with Everytown for Gun Safety to launch the Everytown Creative Council in support of preventing gun violence. From my blog post:
“Moore hopes that with the help of the council, she can help create awareness for change. A note on the website reads, “We believe the creative community has an opportunity to use our communications skills and the power of culture to galvanize many more Americans in the gun violence prevention movement.”
Moore also noted in a press release that the council is not meant to fight against the 2nd Amendment.  “We do not believe that the 2nd Amendment and gun safety are mutually exclusive ideas, and as a creative community, we will do everything we can to support the safety of our fellow Americans, and galvanize more to join us in this movement.”

Guess “gun violence” is acceptable when performing your “cultural craft” and making the big bucks.

Gun controllers change tactics to mimic those of homosexual movement

Having failed to effect nation-wide gun control despite the Sandy Hook school massacre false-flag hoax, the anti-gun rights ilk are now taking a page from the successful “gay rights” and same-sex marriage movement: 

What you can’t get done at the federal level, try to get done state by state.

Genevieve Woods writes for The Daily Signal, Jan. 9, 2015:

John Feinblatt, president of Everytown for Gun Safety, explained to the New York Times that when advocates of same-sex marriage fought their battle at the federal level, they ended up with the opposite of what they wanted–the Defense of Marriage Act, which defined marriage as being between a man and a woman was passed.  So, what to do?   Feinblatt:  “Then they went to the states and showed that if you can get the majority of the public on your side state by state, that will influence the courts and Congress in the end.

Gun control exponents are adopting two tactics of the “gay rights” movement:
1. Take the fight to the states.
2. Change the language: Just as homosexuals co-opted the word “gay,” thereby replacing the image of sodomites with happy sunshiny “gay” people, the gun control lobby also has decided to ditch the “control” part of its name because the word is so, well, controlling.  It now prefers to be known as the gun safety movement.
Whatever they call themselves, Woods warns that “despite what gun control advocates call themselves or what strategy they use, their ultimate goal is an America where citizens don’t have the right to bear arms.”
You are forewarned!
