The 'purge'! Companies exact revenge on Trump supporters

(United States)

Are U.S. companies retaliating against employees and cutting ties with customers who supported President-elect Donald Trump?


Since the Nov. 8 election, stories of businesses demanding resignations and severing ties with Trump-backing clients have been surfacing in the media and online.


In one case, Matthew Blanchfield of the New Mexico online marketing company 1st In SEO announced he is canceling all client accounts belonging to Republicans and Trump voters.

“America has elected Donald Trump, a racist, sexist fascist, to be our next president,” Blanchfield wrote in a Nov. 11 letter posted on the company website. “1st In SEO will no longer do business with any person that is a registered Republican or supports Donald Trump. 1st In SEO will also not do business with business interests that support either the Republican Party or Donald Trump. …

“If you are a Republican, voted for Donald Trump or support Donald Trump in any manner, you are not welcome at 1st In SEO, and we ask that you leave our firm.”

Blanchfield said his company “will do everything in our power” to ensure it severs ties with any person or business that “supports fascism.”

In addition to rejecting Republicans and Trump supporters, Blanchfield says his company will refuse to do business with “anyone who supports our country’s president elect.” He urged his current clients to respond to his letter and “confirm where you stand politically.”

On Wednesday, the company tweeted: “If you support Trump, your business is not welcome here.”


Grubhub: ‘We do not tolerate hateful attitudes’

Another company made headlines after a mobile food-ordering company said employees who support Trump’s behavior and campaign rhetoric should quit.

“If you do not agree with this statement then please reply to this email with your resignation because you have no place here,” wrote Matt Maloney, CEO of Grubhub, in a Nov. 9 letter to employees. “We do not tolerate hateful attitudes on our team.”

Maloney, a Clinton supporter, continued: “I absolutely reject the nationalist, anti-immigrant and hateful politics of Donald Trump and will work to shield our community from this movement as best as I can.

“I want to reaffirm to anyone on our team that is scared or feels personally exposed, that I and everyone else here at Grubhub will fight for your dignity and your right to make a better life for yourself and your family here in the United States.”

Maloney also indicated that his food company would have fired Trump himself, had the billionaire worked there.

“Had he worked here, many of his comments would have resulted in his immediate termination.”

Forbes magazine reported that Grubhub’s stock price fell by 3.8 percent within 48 hours of the letter’s publication – after the Twitter hashtag #boycottgrubhub was launched.

Maloney later attempted to minimize some of the damage by clarifying that he “did not ask for anyone to resign if they voted for Trump.” Rather, his letter called for the resignation of employees with “hateful attitudes.”

Fox affiliate: Fired ‘for expressing my conservative views’


A Texas television reporter says a Fox affiliate fired her because she made positive statements about Trump on her personal Facebook page, the New York Post reported.

Scarlett Fakhar, who worked at KRIV-TV 26 in Houston, said the station canned her after she said she was “happy and relieved” because Trump won his race for the White House.

In her Facebook post, which has been deleted, Fakhar also argued that President Obama made “the entire country hate one another.” She suggested God “had a hand” in Trump’s victory and said she could “barely sleep from how happy and relieved she was” after Trump won.

“Fox 26 Houston fired me today for expressing my conservative views on my private Facebook page,” Fakhar wrote in a Nov. 17 Facebook post. “That is all I will say for now. But I want you to know how much your support has gotten me through this. God bless you all.”

Fakhar later claimed the station was attempting to get her to delete her “fan page” from the social media network.

On Nov. 21, Fakhar posted another note on Facebook saying she believes her departure was “for the best” due to the station’s “political agenda.”

Bradley Brick: ‘I lost my job today for being a proud American, supporting Trump’

In Louisiana, a woman named Rachael Jarrett claims she was fired from her position at Bradley Brick because she supports Trump – an allegation her former employer says is not true.


“So I get to work this morning, and everyone in my work atmosphere is like so pi–ed off about Trump being president while I was excited because I voted for Trump. Yes, I did, because I’m for America. I’m for choices, and I’m for people being able to make a decision and have another decision outside of a liberal agenda, OK?

“So I come into work, and they’re like, so mad. … But we’re all friends, so we’re all cool. And I was like, well, I’m excited. I’m proud to be an American today. And by God, I am proud to be an American. I feel pretty dang good waking up, knowing that we have someone in office that is for America and that loves America, first of all. Second of all, after I said I was a proud American, my boss proceeds to tell me to shut up – straight up, y’all – shut up, to my face, stop talking, shut up. That was his exact words to me, OK?

“So I just looked at him, and I was like, um, what exactly are you telling me to shut up for? And he was like, you don’t need to be talking about being pro-Trump up here.”

She claimed her boss told her, “You can just go ahead and leave.”

Jarrett declared, “I lost my job today for being a proud American and supporting Trump.”

But Bradley Brick supervisor Joey Gilchrist told rock station 99X he is a “Trump supporter” and “was very proud” to vote for the president-elect.

He called Jarrett’s story “false.” Gilchrist explained that he has a “very diverse” office and that Jarrett made “comments that you could construe as racially charged in front of Hillary supporters.”

“I asked her to be quiet, and she refused,” Gilchrist said. “And it escalated. … I finally, through several other comments, asked her to leave for the day. And here we are.”

However, Jarrett followed up with an interview with 99X alongside her husband, Chris Jarrett.

She said any claims that she was “let go because of racial comments” is “a complete and utter lie.” Jarrett claims the company has video footage that shows she “did not act out” when Gilchrist told her to leave. “At that point, I was terminated,” she said.

Imam ‘forced’ to resign for supporting Trump’s Muslim immigration ban

As WND reported in December 2015, a Texas imam said he was forced to resign over his support for Trump.

Nidal Alsayyed of the Islamic Society of the Triplex in Beaumont, Texas, told KFDM Fox 4 that backing Trump’s plan to temporarily stop Muslim immigration cost him his job.

“I certainly see it to be wise,” Alsayyed said of Trump’s proposal made on the campaign trail. “I believe the situation nationally is getting mixed up and certainly agree with Mr. Trump on closing the door until further understanding is achieved. This should not prevent the United States to fulfill its duties toward the international partners and humanity calls outside the United States.”

Trump had said a temporary halt in Muslim immigration is needed until U.S. elected officials can form a coherent strategy for combating Islamic radicalism at home and abroad.

“Until we are able to determine and understand this problem and the dangerous threat it poses, our country cannot be the victims of horrendous attacks by people that believe only in jihad, and have no sense of reason or respect for human life,” Trump had said, WND reported.


Alsayyed said the billionaire’s policy proposal was in line with Islamic law because, “the loss of one life is equivalent to killing the whole mankind.”

“We are dealing with unknown people who are coming with different backgrounds,” the former religious director said. “The intelligence agencies are not able to figure out what’s happening. Why all of a sudden does this guy or this girl or that lady open fire and kill 15 people? Because American Muslims are not doing their job in the country. So we need to stop. We need to stop taking new ones until we fix the existing situation.”

Alsayyed claimed 102 imams in the Houston area were fired and told to leave their mosques because they “did not go along with the political agenda for their board members.”

In a statement released later that month, the Islamic Society of the Triplex said, “Dr. Alsaayed’s personal views and statements are not representative of the IST administration or its membership. The IST is a non-profit religious organization with absolutely no political association. The IST has been actively involved in interfaith dialogue for thirty-seven years. We are doctors, lawyers, professors, entrepreneurs, and military veterans who are actively contributing to and advancing the ideals of American democracy. We have established sincere, and verifiable bonds of trust with every facet of society in Beaumont and surrounding cities. This is who we were prior to the employment of Dr. Alsayyed and we remain – socially responsible Americans.”

This mindset has never been displayed prior to the last 8 years. This type of reaction is symptomatic of the ideology that has infiltrated the United States since the election of Barack Obama.

I am not blaming the man personally. However, he and others who think like him have risen to power during his presidency and this is the result of it. There is really nothing different about this type of thinking than what you saw demonstrated by Fidel Castro and others of the same ideology.

Simply put, if you think different or oppose the socialist/communist ideology, you are vilified and punished as they see fit. It is intolerable even though they present themselves as superior in philosophy.

There is vengeful trait among these people that lashes out when they are resisted and defeated. This is why you see the violent demonstrations in opposition to a legal and fair presidential election. This is why you will see Barack Obama breaking with tradition of previous presidents and critique Trump once he leaves office. George Bush did not agree with the policies of Obama yet we never once heard anything from Bush. He remained silent as did other presidents before him.

This is another reason that our education system needs to be looked at closely and new incentives put in place to prevent this socialist mindset from being taught in our schools. Rather, the real history of America and what is has contributed to the world and why it is a great nation should once again be taught. If these professors so despise this nation they should all be asked to leave and teach outside our borders.
