They have earned a solid reputation for defending religious liberty and the pro-life movement. And Patriot Mobile has also been at the forefront of a national effort to elect conservatives to school boards.
Aside from that – they are just good people.
The other day Patriot Mobile tried to honor the Grapevine Police Dept. in Texas.
They presented officers with a $1,200 gift certificate for a pizza party.
The police department said they were blessed and thanked Patriot Mobile for their generosity.
But then — critics lashed out — accusing Patriot Mobile of being a divisive company.
In response, the police department rejected the company’s act of kindness. They caved to the cancel culture mob. Get a load of the police department’s woke response:
One of the aspects we value most from our Community is their willingness to speak up and voice their concerns, even when doing so may be difficult. Our Community deserves to be heard, and we want you to know we are listening.
This week, we accepted a food donation from a local business, as we often do, and posted a thank you on social media. This is not uncommon, as our Community is very giving and we want to recognize them and thank them. We do not question a donor’s beliefs, we simply express our gratitude. In this case, however, the donation brought out deep emotion.
One of our values, Dignity, ensures that we recognize the inherent worth of all persons and compels us to act toward them within a manner that conveys our understanding of that truth. It is about being respectful to ALL. The Relationships we have, and desire, with our Community Members are foundational to growing trust and legitimacy. Please know that our actions were not intended to create distrust, and we vow to do better moving forward. We are going to re-evaluate how we receive donations in the future, and we will remain open, and transparent, in how we do so.
As for the donation and in the spirit of sharing what we have with others, we are opting to donate the food to a true need. We want something positive to come from this experience and that means giving to a worthy cause.
We thank everyone who took the time to voice their thoughts, and we also thank you for allowing us a day to reflect on the situation. We are not merely giving you words today – we are working to make a lasting change in how we operate so we can move forward together. We recognize that we are one member of a great Community.
We will always strive to protect everyone in our community and remain committed to providing the highest quality police service.Grapevine Police
In the words of Patriot Mobile, the city of Grapevine “took a knee.”
“The response from the far left is not surprising to us, nor is it anything new. We are humbled to serve as a Christian conservative company. Our mission is to defend our God-given Constitutional rights. We have been called Christian Nationalists by those who want to silence us, to break us, to make us stop, but we embrace the term Christian Nationalist. We love our country and we love the Lord and we strive to be light in the darkness,” said Patriot Mobile chief executive officer Glenn Story.
Whoever made the decision to reject the gift should be fired. Meantime, I’m sure there’s another police department in Texas that would be more than willing to accept a free large sausage and pepperoni pizza.
