Food supply giant Kroger is immediately removing the Indiana Oath Keepers from its “Community Rewards” program, claiming that the “militia group” has ties to violence at the Capitol earlier this month.
Kroger defunds the Constitution
According to a company statement issued by Kroger honchos on Tuesday, they had no idea they were sponsoring a conservative group. “We were dismayed to learn today this group is part of the Community Rewards program.”
They were horrified that their “customer-directed giving program” might be funding nationalism, or worse, patriotism.
The Oath Keepers had deplorably posted the Community Rewards program on their website as a way to support their group of “current and former military, police, and first responders who pledge to fulfill the oath that all military and police take in order to ‘defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.'” Kroger can’t have that.
“Given the concerning nature of the allegations against this organization, we have immediately removed the group from receiving customer-directed funds.”
“Kroger has not directed any corporate grants or charitable dollars to the organization.” They also made totally certain they won’t in the future. They’re probably going through their list now to look if any other flag waving groups might be lurking.
Two bad apples
Open Societies Foundation approved watchdog group Southern Poverty Law Center calls the Oath Keepers “one of the largest” conservative groups in North Central America.
To Kroger, because two of their unsupervised radical followers were incited by the Deep State to participate in the barbarian invasion, the whole group and anyone who agrees with them is equally guilty.
They won’t see a dime from any rewards program Kroger sponsors, you can rest assured. All because the FBI announced on Tuesday that they thwarted “an upcoming plot involving two people from Ohio and a man in Virginia to attack the U.S. Capitol and Ohio’s statehouse.”
An attack which might have been suggested by the Federal Bureau of Instigation just so they could bust the Oath Keepers “on cue.”
There’s no doubt that the FBI had been watching these folks closely. “The FBI collected social media messages, photos and video to identify them as part of the Oath Keepers.”
Donovan Crowl and Jessica Watkins were arrested and charged with conspiracy and such. Kroger finds that so despicable they need to weed out every single one of those who believe there is still a Constitution to swear an oath to.
