I take it as a compliment though it certainly wasn't intended that way. :)

The founder of Patagonia, the outdoor apparel company that has pledged to lead the resistance against President Donald Trump, called Trump’s voters “rednecks.”

“Why should we kowtow to these redneck voters and Republican politicians?” said Yvon Chouinard, Patagonia’s eccentric founder and billionaire environmentalist, according to consultant Steve Everly. “The most you can achieve is a compromise, and that never solves a problem.”


  1. After seeing a historical documentary about where the term Redneck comes from I would be very proud to be called one............

    1. They were the backbone of the ANV as well as many other Confederate Armies.

  2. Another company on my boycott list. We are rednecks and proud of it.

  3. Well, Yvon, I will not be purchasing anything from Patagonia again.


  4. Regardless of derivation, as used by Chouinard "redneck"was intended to to insult Trump supporters. Vote with your wallet.
