Source: A western Massachusetts business owner claims he was misinformed about the purpose of his trip to the White House this week. Dave Ratner, owner of Dave’s Soda and Pet City was there when President Donald Trump signed an executive order Thursday to develop policies that would increase health care competition and choice. Ratner said he was invited by the National Retail Federation and professes he would have never went if he had known the President’s intentions that day. He noted that the meeting was supposed to be about reversing a rule that would offer group insurance rates to members of the N.R.F. Ratner apologized to his customers in a written statement on Facebook the following day which said in part:
I did not go for Trump. I and the 20 other small business owners went to support the millions of small businesses that are in a complete disadvantage to the chains when it comes to buying health insurance for their employees.
Since Thursday, Dave’s business has received a large number of negative reviews posted on social media.
Oh for fuck’s sake. Can someone PLEASE get this dude a PR guy? I don’t think I’ve ever seen someone blow a situation worse than this guy just did.
First of all, I have no problem with his page getting flooded with one star reviews. I disagree with the reasoning behind it, but Turtleboy would be the biggest hypocrite on earth if we criticized the tactics they’re using. After all, turtle riders literally just destroyed a coffee shop in Lynn over politics the other day. Welcome to the Internet. This is how the world works now.
Secondly, how do you not see something like this coming? You sell dog food in Western Massachusetts. Do you understand the kind of people that live in Western Massachusetts? There’s like 3 or 4 places out there that are redeemable – Agawam, Ludlow, and the Longmeadows. Other than that it’s Charlemont trailer parks, hoodrats, and rabid granola eating SJWs. You voluntarily took a picture with a President who sparks the most insane triggering butthurt since Millard Filmore, while he was signing a document that gets rid of a lot of the things their cult leader (#44) enacted, and yet you didn’t think anyone would have a problem with this? What planet is this dude living on? Has he ever been on social media before? Kind of hard to miss.
Thirdly, if you’re gonna do something like this, then just own it man. Whatever you do, DO NOT do what you just did. DO NOT try kissing these people’s asses. Trust me, they don’t want to get along with you. They hate you forever now. This was completely gutless:
“If someone says to you, this is what I’m going to do, you go there because you think that’s what they’re going to do, right? (Trump) just basically dismantled all of Obamacare, but he didn’t let that out until we were standing there,” he said in an interview. “People think that I went and I’m in favor of dismantling Obamacare, I’m certainly not in favor of all the other stuff — it’s stupid — and neither is the association. I wasn’t duped, I just never would have gone had I known what the true intention was.”
“I apologize, I’m embarrassed and I never in a million, gazillion years would have gone had I known what he was going to announce, because I think it’s stupid and I agree with them completely — it’s mean,” he added.
This can’t be real. Ummmm….after the wall, there’s nothing Trump talked more about than dismantling Obamacare. If you didn’t know that Trump’s intention was to dismantle Obamacare then, yea, you’re just lying. And it’s a really, really bad look for you.
Just own it man. Just come out and say, “I don’t always agree with the President, but this particular bill is good for small businesses like mine which pay taxes and employ people in the community, because it’s impossible for us to compete with Wal-Mart if we have to pay for our employee’s health insurance.” That’s it. Instead he chose to kiss the asses of a bunch of people giving him one star reviews in the hopes they’d change their minds. And it failed miserably:
Look, the fact of the matter is that these people don’t shave their muffs. They’re miserable, horrible people. And they LIVE for moments like this. They don’t want to get along with you. They will never, ever get over this. Why you’d even give them that opportunity is beyond me. Never mix politics with business, especially when you live in Western Massachusetts.
Fourthly, it’s insane that this type of reaction happens over politics. I thought it was sad and pathetic when right wingers started boycotting the NFL and burning jerseys because some players took a knee during the National Anthem. If this same guy took a picture with Obama signing a bill the people screaming right now wouldn’t have a problem with it. But it is what it is, and Dave’s gotta know his audience.
Fifthly, fuck these assholes doing this. Like it or not Trump is the President. If you want to repeal Obamacare that doesn’t make you evil. If you want Obamacare it likewise doesn’t make you evil. Healthcare is a right. It’s something you have the right to purchase. But you don’t have a right to free healthcare. You DO have the right to free speech and to boycott this guy’s business, just as we have the right to publicly humiliate you for being losers. Like Stevie Converse:
“We know where you loyalty lies and it ain’t with me or anyone else I know.”
Translation – “I’ve insulated myself in progressive, all white social circles with my earth crunchy adjunct professor friends, so that none of us ever disagrees with another person in a social situation. Because we cannot tolerate being around people who disagree with us.”
Shocking that a chick named Stevie would be this butthurt over dog food.
Then there’s Lisa Hagar:
She’s a real winner:
Oh look, a rabid white woman from Western Mass using the power of her keyboard to save the world. Never seen anything like that before!! Funny, because she’s got a shitload of black lives matter stuff on her Facebook page, but there aren’t any black people in any of the pictures. It’s almost as if people like her just pretend to like black people because they think it sounds good, but then they intentionally segregate themselves in communities to stay far, far away from minorities.
Oh yea, and you know that whole “#metoo” thing all the SJWs are lining up to share today so they can compete to find out who the biggest victim is? Yea, Lisa Hagar doesn’t like that, but it’s not why you think:
Wait…..what?? So this hashtag is supposed to be for women who have been sexually harassed, and she’s not happy about it because men who used to be women can’t use this as an opportunity to victimize themselves? That is so Western Mass it hurts.
Finally there was Dale West:
And Dale is everything you would imagine she would be:
Scissor me timbers!!
By the sounds of it this guy does great business. He’s been around for a billion years and has thrived despite Petco and Walmart likely being able to undercut his prices. So the dude doesn’t wanna be forced to pay healthcare if it’s gonna threaten his livelihood and those of his employees. That seems perfectly reasonable. He wasn’t endorsing pussy grabbing or the wall or anything else associated with Trump. Just this one particular issue, and these Nazis wanna ruin him because of that. Yes, it was gutless to cave to them, but that’s because he’s naive and has no idea what he’s doing when it comes to PR. So if your dog is hungry, head on down to Dave’s Soda and Pet City and let him know that you support freedom and locally owned businesses.
We urge you to support the following local businesses. They provide terrific services for the community!
