Why corporations think we need them involved in the process of making decisions outside the area of their products and services, we’ll never know. But that’s what happened on November 13th, when CarMax released a statement in time for National Philanthropy Day this Friday, November 15, 2019.
Their statement said that everybody who buys a car from them during this promotion will get to choose from a wide list of personalized stickers to put on their car in replacement of the traditional CarMax logo.
Local Stickers for Local Causes
The have partnered with local non-profits in Chicago, Las Vegas and Phoenix, as well as several national organizations.
Here is their statement:
Each customer who buys a car from CarMax may choose from a selection of personalized stickers to display on their vehicle in place of the traditional CarMax sticker. Sticker options highlight the company’s support for nonprofit partners in Chicago, Las Vegas, and Phoenix that are involved in the following causes: animal welfare, arts and culture, city engagement, education, food security, LGBTQIA+, outdoor conservation, safe communities, veterans and military families, and youth sports and play.
Okay, sounds like many of your typical leftist causes.
Nothing on there about stickers for people who are damn proud of their gun rights.
Nothing for people who are pro-life.
Not even a sticker for something as generic as being a Christian.
National Anti-Gun Groups Get a Bite
But Carmax went on:
In addition to local nonprofit partners, CarMax is also supporting national nonprofits KaBOOM!, dedicated to creating more equitable play spaces for all kids, and The Mission Continues, empowering veterans to continue their service, and empowering communities with veteran talent, skills and preparedness to generate visible impact. CarMax is also donating to Everytown for Gun Safety in support of its program Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, an organization committed to fighting for public safety measures that can protect people from gun violence.
So when you buy a car from CarMax, they’ll donate to Everytown and Moms Demand with some of your money!
Now, they’ll say they’re just being inclusive, but we all know that’s bunk.
If they were being inclusive, there would be a choice to have your sticker be the Gadsden Flag.
And you could stipulate that your donation be made to the Second Amendment group of your choice.
Or maybe you’re pro-life and want to donate to a local pregnancy center.
No, this is more leftist corporate pandering.
And while they’re free to do that, gun owners are free to go shopping for used cars at any other used car lot.
