TIKI Condemns Neo-Nazis For Using Their Torches

Neo-Nazis and white supremacist are lame, if you see one, there’s nothing wrong with punching them in the face. Some people may even call it art. They are violent buffoons and many of them have been cheering the murder of Heather Heyer, the 31-year-old who was killed by a racist while fighting racism during Saturday’s white supremacist gathering in Virginia.

But on Friday night a very large group of neo-Nazis and white supremacist chanting Nazi slogans like “blood and soil,” marched through Charlottesville on their way to the Rotunda on the campus of the University of Virginia. Wanting to resemble the Ku Klux Klan’s marches back in the day, they used TIKI torches to illuminate their journey and now, TIKI, the company who made those torches, is pissed.

The internet was quick to clown the white supremacist for their usage of TIKI torches in the first place.

On Saturday company issued a statement on Facebook:

“TIKI Brand is not associated in any way with the events that took place in Charlottesville and are deeply saddened and disappointed. We do not support their message or the use of our products in this way. Our products are designed to enhance backyard gatherings and to help family and friends connect with each other at home in their yard.”

The list of companies condemning the activities by these white supremacists is growing. Last week before the rally, Airbnb banned suspected white supremacists and neo-Nazis from renting in Charlottesville. Then today news has surfaced that GoDaddy.com, the domain host that the white supremacist site Daily Stormer uses, would be refusing to host their domain. 

On top of companies condemning white supremacists and Nazis, one of Trump’s advisors, Kenneth C. Frazier of Merck Pharma, a black man who sat on Trump’s Manufacturing Council, resigned because of Trump’s weak response to the attacks in Charlottesville. 

President Trump has yet to specifically condemn James Alex Fields Jr., the man accused of killing Heyer and who is due in court today, by he did take the time out of his morning to attack Frazier on Twitter for quitting.
