The owner of an Internet marketing company in Albuquerque is refusing to do business with Donald Trump voters due to their support for a “racist, sexist, fascist”.
In a blog post, 1st in SEO’s Matthew Blanchfield writes that the company “will no longer do business with any person that is a registered Republican or supports 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 you to leave our firm,” states the post, labeling Trump a “racist, sexist, fascist”.
The company has also vowed to “aggressively advertise” the fact that it won’t do business with Trump voters, with Blanchfield appearing in a KOB4 news report in which he insists the decision is driven by “morality, justice and doing what’s correct”.
Blanchfield finishes the blog by vowing to serve only “Democrat and Progressive clients” in the future.
Firstly, the sheer stupidity of a business decision that immediately alienates half of your potential customers is off the charts.
Secondly, Blanchfield’s behavior is illustrative of how the left behaves in general – and is a huge part of why they lost the election in the first place.
The left preaches “tolerance” and “diversity” until the cows come home except when it comes to diversity of opinion, at which point leftists turn into the most vindictive, intolerant people imaginable.
Reaction to the story was vitriolic.
“I love how these blowhards espouse “morality” and “justice” when the candidate they supported couldn’t be further from those principles. Keep your product hypocrites, I’ll keep my money,” responded one Facebook user.
“Good thing he’s not a baker or the state would come down hard on him for not baking a cake that goes against his morals,” added another.
If what happened to Grubhub is anything to go by, Blanchfield’s decision to refuse business from Trump supporters is going to be one that he regrets.
After Grubhub CEO Matt Maloney sent out an email asking that “hateful” Trump supporters working at the company resign “because you have no place here,” the company’s stock price plunged, forcing Maloney to walk back his statement in an effort to calm the backlash.
Blanchfield’s blog post (which will almost certainly be deleted soon) appears in full below.
