I swear, people these days are obsessed with being social justice warriors. They are always looking for a reason to stir up trouble and create a problem where there isn't one.
Costco recently removed a popular pimento cheese brand from the shelves of 120 of their stores after the owner referred to the Black Lives Matter mob as a "terrorist organization" on Facebook.
First of all, we have free speech. Second of all, he's right.
Brian Henry, founder of Palmetto Cheese and mayor of Pawleys Island, South Carolina, wrote on Facebook at the end of last month, "I am sickened by the senseless killings in Georgetown last night. 2 [sic] innocent people murdered. Not 2 thugs or people wanted on multiple warrants. 2 white people defenselessly gunned down by a black man."
Henry wrote. "So why do we stand by and allow BLM to lawlessly destroy great American cities and threaten their citizens on a daily basis ... this has gone on too long. Rise up America. This BLM and Antifa movement must be treated like the terror organizations they are."
According to the Georgetown County Sheriff's Office, the man Henry spoke of, 23-year-old Ty Sheem Ha Sheem Walters III, was arrested on Aug. 24 for shooting three people and killing two — 21-year-old Laura Anderson and her step-father, Nick Wall — during an altercation following a car accident that day in Georgetown, South Carolina.
Following Henry's statement against Black Lives Matter, Costco removed the product from 120 of its stores. A corporate spokesperson declined to comment to TODAY. However, the Post and Courier, which broke the story, obtained a photo of a sign from Costco in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina that specified the cheese was "discontinued" and would "not be re-ordered." Henry also confirmed to the Post and Courier that his product was in the process of being removed from shelves.
Many have spoken out in support of Black Lives Matter on social media and asked others to #BoycottPalmetto at their local grocery stores. The Georgetown, South Carolina NAACP branch president Marvin Neal called for Henry's resignation as mayor.
"When two White people were allegedly killed by a Black man in Georgetown, SC, Mayor Brian Henry of the neighboring town of Pawley’s Island Beach had the opportunity to bring citizens closer together. He instead chose to use his platform to cause further racial divide and controversy by venting his frustrations on social media," Neal said.
Henry did apologize for his post, even though he shouldn't have had to:
“I am profoundly sorry to those I offended with my post last week. My comments were hurtful and insensitive. I spent that past 10 days listening and learning. The conversations I’ve had with friends, our staff, the community and faith-based leaders provided me with a deeper understanding of racial inequality and the importance of diversity sensitivity, which is very much needed to heal Pawleys Island, Georgetown and our country."
I don't even like pimento cheese but I believe was absurd to pull the products from the shelves because Henry was not afraid to stand up to the mob. All this situation has shown is that Costco negotiates with terrorists.
