‘Shopify’ Taking Heat For Targeting Gun Companies. Here’s a Breakdown of What They’re Doing.

Published

Apparently freedom of speech and the right to bear arms are not values Shopify is dedicated to, a truth they have made abundantly clear by recent actions they have taken against gun companies in order to appease the madness of liberal gun haters across the country.

The Canada-based commerce platform, serving close to 600,000 merchants, suddenly shifted its free speech policy which now includes a ban on guns and gun-related products.

Shopify revised their Acceptable Use Policy on Monday to include a sales embargo on certain semi-automatic firearms, unfinished lower receivers, unserialized firearms, magazines capable of accepting more than 10 rounds, and many more products (view the list, here).

In a press release to The Daily Wire, Florida-based gun manufacturer Spike’s Tactical said “the new rules will essentially shut down the sale of guns, gun parts and accessories over the internet by retailers who use Shopify.”

“This decision will have significant ramifications to our business and should concern every online retailer and Second Amendment supporter,” warned Spike’s Tactical GM Cole Leleux.

The company conducts millions of dollars in sales via the platform, annually. “We have invested more than $100,000 in the development of our Shopify store, which will disappear once these policies go into effect,” Leleux said.

Texas-based Rare Breed Firearms was also hit by Shopify’s new dubious policy shift. “We have spent the last three years developing the Rare Breed brand and more than $40,000 developing our Shopify site,” said company president Lawrence DeMonico.

Ironically, Shopify founder and CEO Tobias Lütke has long-praised his company’s commitment to free speech, even if such speech was unpopular and controversial. “We don’t like Breitbart, but products are speech and we are pro free speech. This means protecting the right of organizations to use our platform even if they are unpopular or if we disagree with their premise, as long as they are within the law,” wrote Lütke in a Medium post published in 2017.

Just goes to show that if you know the right areas to apply pressure, folks will quickly cave to the demands of the progressive movement, swiftly and without a second thought.

What really makes this shady is the fact that gun businesses were not informed of any impending changes nor were they notified that such changes may impact their businesses. These individuals have sunk major money into their companies and the Shopify platform and now it’s just gone. With a snap of Thanos’ fingers. Poof. All is turned to dust.

This clearly isn’t ethical. Shopify needs to make this right by restoring the accounts or by reimbursing folks for the revenue lost due in large part to these changes.

A very sick and twisted individual is sending out letters to those who are supporters of President Trump in the state of New Hampshire, threatening to burn their homes to the ground if he happens to lose the election but doesn’t concede. Local news outlets reported that the letter has been sent to various homes in the the town that have been displaying support for Trump. Here’s what the letter said via Daily Wire: Dear neighbor. You have been identified by our group as being a Trump supporter. Your address has been added to our database as a target when we attack should Trump not concede the election. We recommend that you check your home insurance policy and make sure that it is current and that it has adequate coverage for fire damage. You have been given “Fair Warning.” Always remember, it was “you” that started this Civil War. Be prepared to face the severe consequences of your pre-emptive actions against democracy. Brookline police Chief Bill Quigley confirmed two Trump supporters in his town also received the letter. “”I was kind of quite shocked that anyone would send a letter out with that type of threat,” he admitted. Quigley said he alerted the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, adding that the perpetrator could be charged with a serious crime. He explained, “Not only with us, with criminal threatening. It’s on a felony level, because of the threat of burning homes down and causing injury, but it could also be with the postal inspectors, something on the federal level.” “I was very taken aback. This is my home. You’re not supposed to threaten my home. I’m very worried in the sense that this is going on in my town,” Milford resident Kelly told the press. Milford is a small town with a…

Matthew McConaughey Tells Americans To ‘Embrace’ Results Of 2020 Election ‘Whichever Way It Goes’

Published

Actor Matthew McConaughey has a message for Americans ahead of the 2020 presidential election and to be honest, it’s one you probably wouldn’t have guessed would come from someone with his amount of Hollywood clout. We’re all so used to raging liberals just hating on the president for no logical reason that when someone from the entertainment industry actually offers some sort of reasonable response to the political madness of our time it takes you off guard. According to McConaughey, regardless of which way the election works out, Americans should “embrace” it. via Fox News: McConaughey, 50, promoted his new book “Greenlights” on “Fox & Friends” on Wednesday and spoke about his motto: “When faced with the inevitable, get relative.” Applying that motto to the race between President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden, he said, “It’s not inevitable who’s going to win.” “After that happens, whether it’s an incumbent or whether it’s Biden, after it happens is when it’s time to get constructive and not be in denial,” McConaughey stated. “It’s time to get constructive and not deny the fact of whatever’s happened and embrace the situation,” he said speaking about the future president. “Whoever is going to be commander in chief and president of the United States of America, that’s not something, hopefully, that we’re going to deny or be able to argue,” the actor told the “Fox & Friends” crew. “I hope it’s a clean election,” McConaughey went on. “Whichever way it goes I hope it’s clean and that there’s no debate.” Now, embracing it doesn’t mean just going with the flow completely and not holding whoever wins up to the standards of morality and the Constitution. But it does mean not being a crybaby and throwing a fit, burning neighborhoods to the ground and looting…
