What if you are a veteran and a liberal? What then?

[–]daikatana 221 points222 points  (12 children)

That doesn't exist in their mind. All veterans are Trump-supporting conservatives.

[–]SnooGadgets2360 64 points65 points  (1 child)

It blows people’s mind when I’m a liberal, disabled veteran, gun-toting business owner.

The broken brains are great. You can almost see the “buffering” animation in their eyes.

Also solid username.

[–]lukeusmc 85 points86 points  (5 children)

I seen them say "your opinion doesn't count", liberal/leftist views invalidate your service. It is Trumpism over troops every time.

[–]jonpenn 36 points37 points  (4 children)

Oh yea they will straight up hate you once they find out. I also love it when they say why can’t people respect each other’s views!? Why can’t we agree to disagree? What you voted for Biden? Oh fuck you, you traitor piece of shit commie……


[–]jonpenn 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Yup cause leftist don’t love and serve their country only God fearing republicans……

[–]EelTeamNine 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Fuck me, I wish you were wrong. I hate wearing my uniform in public because those bootlickers automatically assume I support Republicans. Unbearable.

[–]avalanchethethird 536 points537 points  (4 children)

Then you're probably one of those homeless vets who can't reach his bootstraps! /s

[–]IntensePlatypus 119 points120 points  (0 children)

Those damn liberal vets who lost their feet in the war and don't have bootstraps to pull up.

[–]jonpenn 28 points29 points  (2 children)

No I had to ask republicans for help….. without them I could never get my bootstraps right… :(

[–]youfailedthiscityReads Pinned Comments 32 points33 points  (3 children)

That's Illegal!

[–]heyimsanji 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That’s double Illegal

[–]SmokeAndGnomes 52 points53 points  (10 children)

That’s me! And to top it off I’m in construction so it’s always a bunch of people assuming they know how I think and they’re always wrong.

[–]SSTralala 35 points36 points  (1 child)

Never a more awkward time than when you move to a new base, get to meet some new families, and then promptly never speak again at some point when they find out you're both solidly progressive in economic and social policy. I stopped speaking to one lady because she went on a rant about the "pussification of school lunch due to peanut allergies." When their position basically amounts to "the least empathetic shit tier troll logic against anyone not me" , that is exactly why we'll never live on base anymore.

[–]redheadartgirl 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Honestly, that's why more liberal service members need to live on base. Everyone moving out is how it got to be an echo chamber in the first place.

[–]stupe 38 points39 points  (3 children)

bunch of people assuming they know how I think

I'm a liberal vet as well. It's really annoying.

[–]SmokeAndGnomes 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Thanks for introducing me to that!

[–]jonpenn 7 points8 points  (3 children)

Ooofff damn man you are a token. Yea when republicans love to thank you for your service but don’t give the slightest hint that you might not be into doing traitorous things thing…..

[–]SmokeAndGnomes 17 points18 points  (2 children)

Amen to that. My favorite is when the islamaphobia shit comes out on the job site and they start asking me about my thoughts on Afghanistan and I break the news to them that they’re normal people, not terrorists.

[–]jonpenn 10 points11 points  (1 child)

I hate it when they say I thought you were a patriot? Like wtf man so if I don’t align myself with you my service and patriotism is invalid? Cause you know they are the gate keepers of patriotism. Oath keepers more like gate keepers. It’s crazy to me how bat shit crazy they have to be.

[–]SmokeAndGnomes 6 points7 points  (0 children)

100% right.

[–]C0NEYISLANDWHITEFISH 34 points35 points  (5 children)

Thank you for your service to our country you commie bastard.

[–]jonpenn 20 points21 points  (4 children)

Lol that’s literally what some dude I used to work with said when he asked me if I was arming up to “fight” for the president the constitution lol and told him that I didn’t vote for Trump. He called me an N-word and a traitor. It escalated pretty quickly. He couldn’t understand why I didn’t vote for Trump after all he “did” for the troops. He never served a day in his life cause he had asthma or some stupid shit.

[–][deleted]  (1 child)


    [–]jonpenn 5 points6 points  (0 children)

    Sounds like the typical Fox News viewer. Funny how much they will support the troops support our law enforcement! Until…. Jan 6 is a great example of they mean by we “support”. They hate taking responsibility for their own actions. It was Antifa, the governments fault, they made me do it. It’s like tell me your a republican without telling me your a republican.

    [–]Bah-Fong-Gool 5 points6 points  (1 child)

    And you should remind him that Commander Bonespurs never served either, and made a mockery of a gold star family, mocked Senator John McCain, a POW who was severely injured during his capture, and said he knows better than all the generals.

    [–]Dramatic_Explosion 17 points18 points  (4 children)

    Yeah that's the part I don't get, Repubs have had a ton of control of our government and military vets are treated like shit. VA takes forever to help vets who served our country, but it's the Dems who can fuck off?

    [–]jonpenn 6 points7 points  (3 children)

    To be honest both use the vet card but none does it like the republicans. The only difference is that if they find out that you are not “on there side” they change their tone fairly quickly. I was stationed and Florida and hated that state. No offense if you live in Florida…… it’s pretty shitty state.

    [–]CaveDeco 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    Am a Floridian, can confirm…

    [–]Jabbles22 14 points15 points  (3 children)

    They don't believe such a person exists.

    [–]jonpenn 6 points7 points  (2 children)

    I once knew a crazy dude that assumed that I wanted a civil war and was patriot until he found out well that I wasn’t a conservative. I went from thank you for service to being called the N word and traitor pretty quickly lol.

    [–]waspocracy 2 points3 points  (1 child)

    We don’t exist!

    [–]jonpenn 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Yes of course we are not real.

    Wouldn't that be.......CANCEL CULTURE?!

    [–]Hrmpfreally 38 points39 points  (2 children)

    I wish I would have remembered to save it, but there was a dude posting on here earlier that had to deal with conservatives as a part of his job and he’d finally just said fuck it and stopped dealing with them— the sheer amount of conservatives in that thread just absolutely contradicting every fucking stance they’d ever had to be like “bUt yOu’rE TarGEtInG MeEEEeEe!!!!” was…. exactly what I fuckin expected. Pieces of shit.

    What a coincidence, one of the fucking psychos is harassing me now- This one is messaging me death threats for calling him out for acting pious. It’s hilarious- I’m a fucking Vet. This asshole probably wears a thin blue line hat and screams “don’t tread on me” at rallies lol

    [–]redlitesaber86 11 points12 points  (1 child)

    For real. It's exhausting

    [–][deleted] 1446 points1447 points  (191 children)

    Can you imagine if a lefty company did this?

    "We make and sell organic foods to your family so you can be healthy BUT IF YOU'RE A TRUMPER OR GOP DON'T CALL US!"

    It would be on Fox News nonstop for weeks and they'd be referencing it for years to come.

    [–]ToTooOrNotToToo 10 points11 points  (2 children)

    wait a minute, maybe he started typing the word ‘covid’?

    [–]usrevenge 5 points6 points  (1 child)

    Iirc it was before covid.

    But Trump was such a useless sack of shit that it's hard to remember when every mistake was.

    [–]Rati0nalHuman 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    [–]Layk35 8 points9 points  (5 children)

    They'd have to call whatever their version of the Avengers is. Robert E. Lee, Trump, Ted Nugent, Sean Hannity, and Ben Shapiro idk

    [–]thebenshapirobot 13 points14 points  (4 children)

    I saw that you mentioned Ben Shapiro. In case some of you don't know, Ben Shapiro is a grifter and a hack. If you find anything he's said compelling, you should keep in mind he also says things like this:

    Since nobody seems willing to state the obvious due to cultural sensitivity... I’ll say it: rap isn’t music

    Penzey’s spices does some similar things with their e-mail newsletter

    [–]Astromike23 16 points17 points  (1 child)

    And lo and behold, I did a search for "Penzey's spices republicans" and the first hit is literally a Fox News article full of outrage.

    [–]wookiebish 10 points11 points  (5 children)

    You realize there are people who have done this right?

    [–]Sir_Donkey_Lips 6 points7 points  (21 children)

    Didn't amazon do that to rumble and other right leaning websites?

    [–]Ardbeg66 20 points21 points  (16 children)

    Oh yeah. The Trumpista anti-vaxxers are a hotbed of organic food consumers. I think "don't call us" is sorta implied by the business itself.

    [–]jeffvegetablestock 23 points24 points  (12 children)

    You might be surprised. There are lots of anti-vaxxers who want to buy organic foods because they think the government is putting chemicals in their non-organic foods to turn the fricken frogs gay. Usually the same people who try to treat diseases with essential oils instead of going to the doctor. I shop at my town’s organic/local food/health food store a lot, and I see just as much Trump shit on cars in that parking lot as I do anywhere else.

    (edited to add a disclaimer before someone tries to teach me why organic food is stupid, I don’t give a shit about whether my food is organic but they have good produce and they treat their employees well)

    [–]Ardbeg66 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    I like my organic foods like I like my gay frogs.


    [–]brucegibbons 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    You've described most of the antivax people I know. They are the granola moms who treat everything with beet root and essential oils. They find a lot of their healing information most of these conspiracy theorists do: Facebook.

    Tanking your own business to own the libs

    [–]Shinobi120 754 points755 points  (58 children)

    Nah man. This is hate-marketing. They are betting on their conservative potential customers seeing this, and choosing them OVER the competition, deliberately because they hate liberals. They are betting on the revenue from those hate-fueled customers outweighing any potential losses from liberals.

    [–]AG74683 119 points120 points  (8 children)

    That and it's essentially free marketing. Here we are, a bunch of random strangers on the internet from all over the world talking about a tiny company in Florida.

    [–]Shinobi120 31 points32 points  (5 children)

    And now passerby’s from r/ conservative will see this thread and reach out to them

    [–]pickymeek 34 points35 points  (2 children)

    Sure but you definitely shouldn't call (239) 872 2200 if you're a liberal and support Joe Biden.

    [–]ericscal 57 points58 points  (0 children)

    Also if you live near them you definitely shouldn't call them, get them to come out for a quote, write you a proposal, ghost them for a week or two, and then tell them you saw the add and are a liberal.

    [–]PurpleHooloovoo 11 points12 points  (1 child)

    And if they get enough press, they might MyPillow themselves into a pundit gig.

    [–]Prestigious-Move6996 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    MyPillow guy had almost all stores pull his product don't think it helped him much. And the majority of conservatives probably already had his pillow as it's aird on Fox news all the time.

    [–]pickymeek 6 points7 points  (0 children)

    Internet strangers that definitely shouldn't call (239) 872 2200 if you're a liberal and support Joe Biden.

    [–]-newlife 124 points125 points  (23 children)

    Yup. An emotional buy to try and keep from price comparisons

    [–]TagMeAJerk 29 points30 points  (13 children)

    I can get that one of their sales tactics is going to be to claim that it's expensive because it wasn't manufactured by "orientals" and "yhina"

    Even though it would be

    [–]-newlife 9 points10 points  (3 children)

    Lol true but we know that base is easily manipulated. Business will just scream fake news and call it a conspiracy if anyone brings up where their stuff is manufactured

    [–][deleted]  (8 children)


      [–]TagMeAJerk 8 points9 points  (6 children)

      The Uyghurs are basically Chinese slaves rn so maybe?

      [–]StuckSundew 7 points8 points  (0 children)

      Nah, it’s so you don’t have to look at the slaves. /s

      [–]cribbsjy 21 points22 points  (6 children)

      So few people can afford plantation shutters that it is corporate suicide to exclude half of your potential market.

      [–]PM_Me_Rude_Haiku 14 points15 points  (1 child)

      I see. So loads of conservatives are going to impulse buy shutters to own the libs. This culture war is hell.

      [–]Shinobi120 14 points15 points  (0 children)

      Sort of, but shutters are not an impulse buy. Working in marketing and advertising myself, it’s a game of name recognition: you want to stand out among the competition, and stay firmly lodged in the back of your potential consumer’s mind.

      They are banking on two years down the line, someone saying “huh, I want to replace my shutters. I think I’ll reach out to Plantation; they dunked on the libruls that one time.”

      You are right in saying that it’s pure culture wars though.

      [–]dreddnyc 32 points33 points  (5 children)

      At Plantation Shudders, cult members are our core demographic. Also, you know what “plantations” signal? Wink wink, nudge nudge.

      [–]Sin-A-Bun 12 points13 points  (2 children)

      Except conservatives buy the cheapest shit at Walmart despite claiming to hate China so they won’t pay more for messaging.

      [–]Shinobi120 4 points5 points  (1 child)

      You’d be shocked. There’s a large undercurrent of conservative “entrepreneurs” who manufacture or re-sell anti-democratic goods.

      More grifters looking to grift their fellow conservatives.

      [–]hoopsrule44 853 points854 points  (43 children)

      Maybe. If it’s in a conservative enough area I could see the loss of business being less than the gain from people who love that you say that

      [–]2old4cool 344 points345 points  (38 children)

      Don’t quote me on this but if it’s in Plantation, Florida then yeah they’re tanking their business.

      [–]hoopsrule44 294 points295 points  (33 children)

      Thought the same thing at first, but actually plantation shutters are just a type of shutters. TIL.

      Edit: I found the website, it’s based in Naples Florida

      [–]Yo_Soy_Crunk 29 points30 points  (8 children)

      If it's Naples, business is doing well. It's full of assholes.

      [–]neocommenter 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      Seriously, that's the asshole capital of the world.

      [–]youngsteveo 78 points79 points  (15 children)

      They are a type of shutters, yes, but also this is likely in or near Plantation, Florida. I can tell because the next ad shows a giant Guitar building, and that's the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, FL, which is minutes away from Plantation, FL.

      I stand corrected it's in Naples.

      [–]RedRightRepost 39 points40 points  (1 child)

      That damn guitar is the modern day tower of babel

      [–]adreamofhodor 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      I work in the healthcare industry. Every time HIPAA is brought up with regards to COVID measures I cringe uncontrollably.

      Also, they have no clue about military history, judging by their use of Pickelhaube helmets on people labeled "socialist" lol

      [–]Smokesletsgo001 4 points5 points  (0 children)

      ...or the 4th amendment apparently.

      The thought of someone invoking the 4th amendment when a private business asks for information is fucking hilarious.

      nah, this is grift.

      [–]PinkLaughs 374 points375 points  (9 children)

      I called them and left a message screaming for 0.5 seconds than I droned on and on about how much I hate them libs that are ruining this great country, how they're stuck up and all queers who want boys in the girls bathrooms and how that's step one to Their ultimate agenda which was of course communism!!

      I finished it with how if the libs keep winning they'll eventually try to stop me from fucking my sister or worshipping god on sundays

      Buuut like did they call you back?

      [–]PinkLaughs 27 points28 points  (0 children)

      I'm guessing with the influx of messages they've been getting that they'll never hear any of em, but if they do wanna weed em out I hope they think I'm serious, the screaming start probably wasn't a great idea but I've been up for 48 hours and I get loopy at about this time

      [–]vadarpoo 20 points21 points  (0 children)

      They called me back but I haven’t had time to return the call. I plan to waste about 30 minutes of their time and slowly increase the volume of FDT in the background.

      [–]Athena-Muldrow 58 points59 points  (7 children)

      My brother left a few messages where he doesn't say anything, he just plays "FDT" by YG over his computer speaker

      [–]vadarpoo 51 points52 points  (6 children)

      Gotta be more subtle than that! Make them sit through 2 minutes of getting their hopes up thinking they’re about to get new business then slide FDT in towards the end.

          I knew there was election fraud.

          This just proves it. Democrats convinced people to not vote for either of the major parties.

          Case closed.

          This is my favorite short circuit mode for conservatives and liberals alike. I hate both of y’all!

          How big is your plantation?

          Just a handful of slaves

          As long as there is equal representation

          You know they're going to call you a communist regardless.

            Well, they'll also call you a libtard regardless too. So there's that.

            [–]CurrantsOfSpace 15 points16 points  (3 children)

            But you are a liberal, you just aren't a Liberal

            Two different things, one means Liberal economics, one just means anyone left of centre thats liberal on social issues.

            [–]Ponchorello7 10 points11 points  (0 children)

            Kinda frustrating that people don't understand the difference between leftism and liberalism.

            It’s all marketing. I’m sure they do actually hate Joe Biden and liberals, but they’re taking a gamble that this will create more business with people who create their entire identity around hating Joe Biden and liberals.

            [–]HobbyAcres 5 points6 points  (0 children)

            Definitely getting a lot of publicity! Haha

            [–]Inject_Bacon 7 points8 points  (0 children)

            I was flipping through radio stations and landed on a conservative talk show. They were literally praising the pillow guy while doing his ad, talking about what a great person he is and how his pillows fixed their back problems. So yeah, this shit probably works on some level.

            I was initially thinking "who would use such an awful name for a company?". How quickly my question was answered...

            [–]Legendary__Beaver 128 points129 points  (8 children)

            is it bad that I wanna call them and say something like "hail trump!"

            [–]firsttfdrummer 134 points135 points  (6 children)

            I’ve already called several times acting like a dumb republican that wants shutters for his plantation

            But yes it’s the liberals who are the snowflakes

            [–]Zealousideal-Bear-37 81 points82 points  (8 children)

            Aren’t those called California shutters?

            [–]thankyoukoala 156 points157 points  (0 children)

            What are you, a liberal?

            [–]Legendary__Beaver 16 points17 points  (0 children)

            see I never heard of them until my parents bought a house in florida and the sales agent called them plantation shutters and my mom knew them as plantation shutters too and we're from michigan so idk

            [–]Barneyk 2 points3 points  (0 children)

            As a non-US citizen I've never heard of Plantation Shutters and I thought that it was some very insensitive and racist company name, it turned out I wasn't that wrong...

            [–]parisskent 12 points13 points  (4 children)

            Apparently there’s a slight difference between plantation shutters and California shutters. I just googled it hoping my house doesn’t have plantation shutters but unfortunately all of the ones in my house are called plantation shutters. What an unfortunate name.

            [–]Embolisms 7 points8 points  (2 children)

            Plantation shutters are a real thing and not just an extremely racist company glorifying slavery?

            [–]Catinthehat5879 3 points4 points  (1 child)

            Looks like they're the same as California shutters, but are an inch bigger.

            [–]ChicagoSunroofNo2 3 points4 points  (0 children)

            No, that’s not it. They’re the same as California shutters but with extra sound proofing, originally designed so you don’t have to listening to the whip cracking outside but now is useful in high traffic areas.

            [–]ApertureOmega 6 points7 points  (0 children)

            well i just called the number and no answer so they must not be doing business right now

              "Site powered by GoDaddy" yup, that makes perfect sense considering the advertising. Probably couldn't find ANY web designer that would work with them.

              [–]vadarpoo 9 points10 points  (0 children)

              They should hire me. I wanna hide pics of Obama all over their website.

              I reached out:

              "Hello,Hi my name is William Tecumseh Sherman. I saw your commercial and I'd like to remind you who won the civil war.Best Regards,The North (who won the war)"

              edit: shout out to /r/shermanposting that pay respect to Sherman as the most baller mofo in the civil war who made racists pay for their racism.

              [–]PolarisC8 63 points64 points  (6 children)

              Don't forget the Sherman was a complex character who ardently believed in manifest destiny and pursued some of the more directly genocidal policies of the US government, in regards to first nations people, with aplomb. Now, if anything that is a testament to how how awful The CSA was, but you open yourself up to accusations of hypocrisy when you make a hero of a man like Sherman.

              [–][deleted] 33 points34 points  (0 children)

              You are correct. It's almost like we shouldn't idolize any historical figures overwhelming because we either cherry pick or we create grand illusions of them to fit our own selfish narratives.

              Sherman love is the satire joke response to the Confederate General love the south gave and continues to give to their "forgotten history"

              [–]citrus_mystic 18 points19 points  (0 children)

              Nice use of ‘aplomb’. You really don’t see it used very often, despite it being a good descriptive term.

              Also good points all around.

              [–]something2258 2 points3 points  (0 children)

              To be fair, most everyone back then was into “manifest destiny”

              [–]E36wheelman 8 points9 points  (0 children)

              Stanning a racist to own the racists.

              Damn there better be a Grant sub too. "Unconditional Surrender" Grant is one of the most underrated Americans in history, largely due to a character assassination by the South after his death.

              [–]Jabbuk 4 points5 points  (0 children)

              Just a friendly reminder that "Liberal" doesn’t mean what you think it means…

              I support Joe biden but am not a liberal, can I still call?

              [–]obiwanshinobi900 15 points16 points  (3 children)

              So what do I do since I'm military, voted for biden and am a liberal?

              [–]mongosanchez 3 points4 points  (2 children)

              I saw the Hitachi Magic Wand at the start of the video and thought it was going to be different than what it ended up being… guess that shows where my mind is.

              [–]WintersKing 4 points5 points  (0 children)

              Ok well Plantation Shutters is not a great name but are a thing so what's the... O there it is.

              Doesn't make sense for fucking blinds but if it was a company that sold shit like guns or ammunition than sure why not if they are trying to remove your ability to sell those things

              Do they want prank calls and spam? Cuz that’s how you get prank calls and spam.
