Harris Teeter and Kroger are all over social media for the wrong reasons after deciding to remove pro-American products following leftists complaining about them in the wake of mass shootings.
One person tweeted on Monday, whining about Harris Teeter selling patriotic items that read “Give me liberty or give me death” and “America, love it or leave it,” according to Fox Business. They carped that the messages were insensitive following mass shootings that have taken place across the nation.
“Why are you allowing this type of item to be sold at your grocery store in Huntersville NC? Clearly, in light of the recent mass shootings, you can understand how this IS NOT a good idea,” the historically ignorant Twitter user named Scarlett contended.
Harris Teeter, who should have ignored the whining, decided to immediately cave to the complaint and told her that they would be discontinuing the “Freedom Series” items.
“Thanks for reaching out,” the company cravenly replied. “As soon as these items were brought to our attention we put a recall request into place and these items are being removed from all store locations.”
“We appreciate your concern,” Harris Teeter added.
Thanks for reaching out, Scarlett. As soon as these items were brought to our attention we put a recall request into place and these items are being removed from all store locations. We appreciate your concern.

Kroger followed suit after a customer named Christy Clark complained about a drink sleeve that innocuously stated, “Arms Change, Rights Don’t.” The store is recalling the item over it and many are wondering what has happened to Kroger.
“110 Americans die every day from gun violence and most recently children, educators, health care providers, and family members were killed in mass shootings. Please remove them,” the customer demanded. A politically correct Kroger complied.
Thanks for reaching out, Christy. We will tell our leadership about your request that we remove these items from our shelves. We appreciate your feedback.

The response by both grocery outlets was not well-received by the majority of their customers. They were hammered for going woke.
“Congratulations on caving to the Woke. We (Those that still believe in our country, and are looking forward to the red wave) will speak with our wallets. When you choose to go woke, don’t try to win us back as you go broke. #GoWokeGoBroke,” one person on Twitter proclaimed.

“When are we going to stop patronizing these ‘woke’ idiots that are destroying our country? This is what’s wrong in America today. We’re losing our country by kowtowing to a minority whose goal is to make the rest of us feel guilty about being American!
Disgusting! WAKE UP!” another responded.

“How well do you think your business would fare in Russia, China, Venezuela? Keep bowing to the left and you’ll find out. When your profits become State profits, remember how you got there,” another enraged customer said, blasting the outlet.

Many others chimed in begging the question of whether the management of these grocery outlets is impaired or just politically biased concerning business decisions:
No more Harris teeter. Publix and food lion for me.,

I have a family of 6 and spend almost $200/wk in your stores. Every weekend dozens of people are shot in Chicago. Many are children. I just saw you sell “Chicago Style Pizza”…this seems very insensitive. Please remove them from your stores…also, the new online ordering is bad pic.twitter.com/fNBad9QWui

Why is Harris Teeter participating in conditioning Americans to view freedom as selfish? I demand an answer. The company complied with the demand of a single anti-2A activist. I demand to know why.

You are catering to one person? “Give me liberty or give me death” is the famous ending to Patrick Henry’s speech before the 2nd Virginia Convention in 1775. I’ll order some cozies today.

Thanks Harris Teeter for making me a forever Publix customer as of today. You caved to one woke customer and will now lose thousands over this. I will make sure that all my family, friends and social media contacts are aware of what you have done.
