Powerful example of an Oil & Gas company daring to fight back against Wokeness and Virtue signaling by a Lefty company refusing to do business with their industry.

BACKGROUND:


North Face turns back on Texas oil and gas company, refuses jacket order




ODESSA, Texas (KOSA) - Innovex Downhole Solutions says it was recently denied an order of jackets by The North Face, a popular outdoor recreation company, because Innovex is an oil and gas business.

Each year, the company gets a Christmas gift for its employees. This year, it was supposed to be a North Face jacket with an Innovex logo, a company Innovex has ordered gear from in the past.

The company providing the jackets said The North Face doesn’t want to support the oil and gas industry in the same way they’d reject the porn industry or tobacco industry.

“They told us we did not meet their brand standards,” Anderson said. “We were separately informed that what that really meant is was that we were an oil and gas company.”

www.nbc12.com...

So, basically, The North Face clothing company uses petroleum products in over 90% of their own manufactured products...yet, because of their Wokeness...and virtue signaling to the Left and the Biden administration...have vocally likened the petroleum industry to the porn and tobacco industry...and refused to fill a small order from an Oil and Gas company, because they're so evil.

This CEO of another Oil and Gas company has adroitly pointed out North Face's hypocrisy...and does so splendidly.

Beautifully done. I laugh at all these people that think by going to all electric cars we are "getting off oil and gas" Almost EVERYTHING you use is oil based. Almost every component of an electric car is oil based, So we are never going to do away with oil, just accept it and live your life.

Conservative- "leave me alone"
Liberal-- "NO"

Excellent. I am seeing more and more of these sort of things. Australia is slamming down on woke universities as well. And now im seeing it is not just Australia:

"Universities could be fined if they don't allow free speech on campus."

You would think that a massive fact check bomb like this on North Face’s heads would cause them to issue a public apology and give this company whatever they want for free.
But watch, I bet they will double down on stupid and come out with some ridiculous statement denying the facts.
Liberal wokeness is a serious mental disorder.

I have several of their jackets...and liked them.
Shame on me for supporting hypocritical Leftist idiots w/o knowing they were.

Won't happen again.

I fully support Northface. I support them not being able to use any of the products they hate, they can make their products fossil fuel free or not at all.

I sincerely hope that it hurts them in some way, shape or form.
Stupidity has to have consequences.

North Face needs to walk the talk. Shut down all production and start selling hemp-based apparel through an Etsy store. Yeah, that's the ticket.

THIS.IS.AWESOME!!!

I absolutely love this approach. Especially since the billboard campaign is being done in the area surrounding the corporate HQ. The very place these "woke hypocrites" must drive by each day to/from work. A workplace that would not exist without that "evil oil industry".

Time has come to offensively and publicly point this out at each and every instance.

They want a boycott.....you got a boycott.

Oh and for the record, I just perused their website for the products they make and sell (at wildly inflated prices to the suckers, I may add).

Here's a bullet list of North Face products that do NOT depend on the Oil/Gas industry:

The "event" took place in Dec 2020 and kind of died off until recently when some oil & gas group rented the billboards around the company's HQ in Colorado.

Kind of like reverse-cancelling I guess.

I'm sure there is more to this, but that's beside the point. TNF is probably objecting to some specific element of the petroleum industry's practices without taking into account the larger picture of the company's dependence on oil. Textbook example of classical woke shortsightedness.

If I was sitting on the Board of Directors I'd be calling for a vote to immediately FIRE every single one of the executives in the food-chain of this boneheaded decision! And the reason? While some dumbass woke middle management marketing "genius" probably thought this was a great idea, the reality is the stockholders don't give one sh!t, nor shinola, about ANY of that crap! All they care about is PROFITS! And, that dumbass move might have just influenced the corporate purchasing decisions of up to 20 million potential customers who work in the energy industry!! BOOM! YOU'RE FIRED, IDIOT! Those customers 'might' have bought hundreds of millions of dollars in merchandise, but NOOOooooo, instead you had to make your cute little woke statement to the World!

ETA - Wow, you sure edited the content of your post, you did! Reads completely different than it did before!

Over an order of less than 100 jackets...some Woke, virtue-signaling, Leftard in the company decided to stand up against evil oil and gas losing customers like me...and potentially millions in profit for the company.

Fun Fact:
North Face's parent company, VF Corp., owns 50 corporate jets.
Ain't they pretty?: prijet.com...

Sooooooo much jet fuel burned by the anti- Fossil Fuel, Woke crowd.



The North Face is a subsidiary of hypocritical VF Corporation.

So please – enjoy this: Aircraft Owned by: VF CORP.

Found at that link – are the nearly FIFTY private jets VF Corp seems to currently own.

Paid for by their petroleum products.

Because they really hate oil and gas.

And the people who provide it.
