Bed Bath and Beyond…Reason

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

Recently, it was announced that a number of retail stores, among them Bed Bath and Beyond, and Kohl’s, will be dropping the My Pillow line of bed and bath products. The reason these stores cited is the Democrat Party Line that the riot at the Capitol was an “insurrection”, and that Trump and supporters like the CEO of My Pillow, Mike Lindell, were responsible for it.

To them, rhetoric equals the commission of a crime. However, they do not apply the same standard to Colin Kaepernick, Antifa, Black Lives Matter, the Pussy March, and numerous Democrats inciting violence, including the Vice President. The burning and looting of Kenosha, Minneapolis, Seattle, Portland, and yes, even Scottsdale, Arizona seems to escape their scrutiny. Were they awake at all last summer and fall? They had no comment on the murder and mayhem in numerous cities or the destruction of monuments.

Apparently, questioning the integrity of election results is a firing offense. One cannot question election results although an actual violation of election law is OK by them.

It is hard to see the logic and consistency in their approach to these matters. It seems entirely arbitrary.

An even more flagrant example is this: Officials of both political parties, including President Biden, have acknowledged the slave labor conditions in China and the genocide against Muslim ethnic minorities.

But, according to the moral bright lights of Bed Bath and Beyond, it is better to deal with murderous dictators that harvest the organs of their political opposition and commit genocide than stain their Progressive reputations by buying pillows made in Minnesota by a Conservative White Christian.

If you have ever visited either of these stores, you would be amazed by all the goods made in China. Do they know which goods are produced in concentration camps? Do they even inquire?

Now, these companies can choose with whom they deal, and will pay whatever costs are incurred if contracts have been violated. But as a business proposition, it seems strange that you would deliberately go out of your way to piss off roughly half the people in the U.S.

At least the NBA can do this and fall back on their numerous Chinese fans, but it hard to see Bed Bath and Beyond, offsetting the clients they will lose with new Chinese Communist shoppers. As a business decision, it seems just plain stupid.  It in some locales, their decision has actually resulted in protests, hardly great publicity.

The public does not have to shop at these stores and we suggest anyone right of center to never darken their doors againThere are lots of other stores you can deal with. For example, Costco publicly stated, they would honor their contract with My Pillow and My Pillow itself has a very active online and media presence.

So, it is unlikely these two retail outlets will really hurt My Pillow.  In fact, My Pillow has warned the public to expect delays in shipping because of overwhelming orders. Thus, it is empty “virtue signaling”, although one can ask, what is the virtue in dealing with a Communist dictatorship that is committing genocide?

We suspect these companies are calculating that since Conservatives don’t politicize everything as they do, you will wince, but continue to deal with them.

If they are correct in this calculation, then Conservatives need to look in the mirror and understand they may well be enabling this corporate idiocy. The more you take this abuse, the more they will give it to you. In reality, you are being an enabler of this hateful corporate behavior.

Make it a point to “poke the woke”. That is to say, do NOT deal with these companies in the future. If this is the game they want to play, we have the right and a duty to strike back. But this needs to go beyond pillows. Don’t buy anything from these two stores.

If you have recently purchased something from them, return it promptly and tell the store manager you will not do business with a store that bans the output of American workers from Minnesota but instead stuffs the store with goods made with slave labor from China.


Are you fed up? Are you worried that America in rapidly sliding into a neo-Marxist state by the radical left in control of Washington with historically narrow majorities in the U.S. House and Senate and an Executive controlled by unnamed far leftists in place of a clinically incompetent President Biden? They are desperate to keep power and complete their radical progressive agenda that will change America and our liberty forever.

Americans just witnessed the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 without one Republican vote in the U.S. Senate and House (just as Obamacare was passed in 2010). The IRS  will be hiring 87,000 new agents, many armed, to terrorize American taxpayers.

Americans witnessed the FBI raid at the Trump Mar-A-Lago home and property of President Trump, truly a first in all of American history. We know what that is about. 

It is undeniable that the Democrat Party and the administrative state (the executive branches of the DOJ, FBI, IRS, et al) are clear and present dangers to our Republic and our liberty as they increasingly veer further away from the rule of law and the Constitution. What is the solution? At this critical juncture, there is only one action we can all take.

The only viable and timely solution at this critical point is to vote – yes, vote correctly and smartly to retake the U.S. House and Senate on November 8th and to prepare the way to retake the White House in two years. Vote and help everyone you know to vote. Please click the TAKE ACTION link below – we must vote correctly and in great numbers to be sure our votes are counted to diminish the potential for the left to rig and steal the midterms and the 2024 elections as they are clearly intending to do after their success in 2020.
