Angry Camping world outrage

Mr Marcus Lemonis the CEO of recreational equipment for Camping World does not want your business if your a trump supporter. This appeared in a recent post in downtrend.com. I as a retired vet with 21 years in the military am appalled. Mr Lemonis also does not want your business if you support NASCAR for the same reason. I spent 21 years of my life defending this country no matter who was in office. This is absolutly outragous. Please disseminate this news far and wide and we will see what tune Mr Lemonis plays when his botton line shrinks. I will neversupport Camping World again!!!

Kmp-44. There is no way to tell. There is so much of that kind of stuff around these days.

I have seen it from enough sources to believe the story is true.

This thread will be locked soon. Discussion of this particular story has been cited as violating the no politics rule.

This has been discussed here before. The general statement about Trump supporters appears to be true, but it sounds like he's starting to back pedal on it seeing the potential business impact. The statement about Nascar is fake news though, after all Camping World sponsors the truck series.

Not Fake News

I think this actually happened. Marcus did the same thing against hunters two years ago. I have purchased a fair amount from CW and am on their email list. If it was a misunderstanding they surely would have sent a note to their past customers.

So, I am going to use a Liberal tool - boycott them!

This is as far as I am going or it will get really political - fast.

CEO comments on trump...


Quote:
There's no doubt that there is probably not many consumers in this country today that are in favor of what has been said in the last couple days and if they are, quite frankly, don't shop at my business," said Lemonis, who is CEO of Camping World and host of CNBC's "The Profit."

First off, thank you for your diligence serving our country.

Secondly....I understand what you're saying, but, in all honestly, in this day and age when so many business's have differing political beliefs, viewpoints, quirks, etc., some may not conform with my own. I have learned to either shop there or trade elsewhere. It's called "my choice". I don't know who they do or don't support, nor do I really care as long they provide the service I'm seeking. And they, in turn, do not know of my political stance. I prefer to keep my business as a shopper, as such, with a need of what item(s) I am seeking, and leave politics out of it. Karma will take care of the rest.

Camping world received my purchase only necausebtheubwere the only nearby dealer that sold the trailer I wanted. I find their "discount" prices to be equal to or higher than everyone else's every day price. They won't see my money in the store but they are closest dealer by more than 100miles. I have not yet had to use them but will likely stick to warrenty work only if I have to. So far I have been able to fix it myself.

I just have a simple question for Marcus. Where was his "horror" when the terrorist / racist organization was committing arson, looting, and rioting? Where was his outrage when Obie invited the terrorists / racists to The White House?
Where was the media reporting on that?

I am respectfully asking the Administrators of this Forum to please realize & understand the importance of this particular issue & the events that are unfolding and NOT close this topic down.

Camping World/ Good Sam's Club/Gander Mountain/NASCAR CEO Marcus Lemonis comments was an insult and attack on Millions of RVer's, Ourdoorsmen/women and Racing fans simply because of what MAY be their point of view. It must be shared with as many fellow RVer's as possible and discussed. It is the responsibility of the entire RV Community, Retailers, RV Owners, etc to hear about this.

It is NOT about Politics. It is about the Constitutional Right of every American and the Men & Woman who have died to keep it that way!

Again, as long as it is done in a respectful way, comments on this subject should be welcomed by Forest River Forums and not shut down. If you do,there will No difference between you & Mr Lemonis
