Progressives take noisy pride in their tolerance, but they won’t go so far as to tolerate sneakers manufactured by a company that agrees with Trump about the TPP trade agreement:

“The Obama administration turned a deaf ear to us and frankly, with President-elect Trump, we feel things are going to move in the right direction,” Matthew LeBretton, New Balance’s vice president of public affairs, told the Wall Street Journal.

The answer was in response to a question about the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement, an initiative led by President Obama and staunchly opposed by Trump. Boston-based New Balance, the only major company that still makes athletic shoes in the United States, has said the trade policy would hinder its business and help competitors who operate overseas.

Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont also opposed the deal.

But that didn’t stop opponents of Trump from turning on New Balance altogether and accusing the company of formally endorsing not just his stance on TPP, but entire platform.

New Balance explicitly denies this. No matter; angry progressives feel a need to lash out. Association with male Caucasians being the ultimate insult in the minds of moonbats, Popcrush denounced New Balance sneakers as “pretty much already the shoe for schlubby white guys” after a neo-Nazi website endorsed them due to the tenuous connection to Trump.
