His Lonesome Dove franchise may actually provide Kyle some creed among older Americans who may send in money or end up on the jury. Having a pretend cowboy paint your client as a champion of gun rights probably isnt the worst move.

Why do people keep acting like this kid wearing a shirt with a company name on it means that the company is supporting/helping/endorsing him? Nobody from the company is in that picture. Would you assume he has Nike sponsorship if he was wearing a Nike shirt?

Because this shit is right up Black Rifle's alley and wearing a Nike shirt is far, far, far more common than this. What a laughable comparison.

This was great too. They shifted hard to xenophobia and blatant racism, like many of these warrior lifestyle brands.

I fail to see how a veteran owned company whos main target demographic is veterans and servicemen is made for epic bacon manchildren.

I have an issue with the high speed type of people who have never served but like to walk around wearing their Grunt Style / Nine Line shit thinking that theyre cool but that doesnt mean that theyre meant to be the intended customers.

To even be in that situation in the first place means one would have gone to a counter protest with a loaded gun and killed people. What are you trying to say here?

When you build a brand around violent imagery and make light of deadly imperialist violence, your entire demographic is going to be immature dipshits. Veteran status doesnt preclude that.

The owners seem to be the typical brand of right wing d-bags so it wouldn't be surprising if they support him but this isn't them showing it.

Or maybe its a company funded by people who realized that theres an entire portion of our country thats been told for decades to conform and has decided to make a buck off of giving them a chance to not be ostracized for once?

Realistically these are people that formed a brotherhood that they grew to depend on for years, and naturally thats going to impact your views on every subject imaginable. A company taking advantage of that is just a natural progression. Its no different from a million beard care companies sprouting after the beard fad of the mid 10s arose.

Like I said, if you have an issue with dudebros and pussies like Rittenhouse who would never actually enlist and would rather play soldier while shooting at innocents domestically, thats one thing. And Im wholeheartedly on that train too. These companies should make it clear that thats not the kind of shit that they support (and perhaps theyre silent because they know a decent chunk of their profits come from far right soldier LARPers).

But I dont think its right to call out the companys existence just because it upsets you that there are people living among you who enjoy making light of their past experiences. Its a well know coping mechanism.

Weird that you think our veterans are only conservative white men. Should probably inform our minorities and women that died overseas that they had no right to be over there.

Fair enough. I was talking in general about these Veteran owned companies. I dont know the demographics of these companies from an employment standpoint (I know specifically American AF was founded by a latino), I just know from personal experience having only recently separated from the military that its not just white men walking around wearing this gear. They target veterans and active duty military in general.

Could say the same about the people burning down the city he was trying to stand up for. They made a stupid choice in going after someone with a rifle and I'm not gonna condemn someone for defending their life just because they weren't 18.

He specifically went there with a rifle to restore order or whatever the fuck his delusional mind thought he was doing. They saw a guy with a gun standing against them. Why are those people not allowed to defend themselves? They had no idea what he was planning to do.

Not a great take when the company youre defending went on an openly xenophobic campaign and spread misinformation about Starbucks dedication to hiring Muslim immigrants over American veterans.
