Patagonia logoAs Patagonia forges ahead with a lawsuit against President Trump, another organization says there are a few things consumers should know about the outdoor company.

President Trump recently announced plans to reduce the size of the Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante national monuments. It was a move that many people out west, including Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah), were calling for.

"Unfortunately, previous administration have ignored the standard and used the law to lock up hundreds of millions of acres of land and water under strict government control," Trump said. "Under my administration, we will advance that protection through a truly representative process, one that listens to the local communities that knows the land the best and that cherishes the land the most."

Calling the move illegal and the largest elimination of protected land in American history, outdoor company Patagonia filed a lawsuit.

"We're losing this planet, and we have an evil government, and not just the federal government, [there's] whacko politicians out of Utah and places," Patagonia CEO Yvon Chouinard told CNN earlier this month. "It's evil. And I'm not going to stand back and just let evil win."

Robert Kuykendall, director of communications at 2ndVote, says Patagonia has a long history of supporting the left's environmental and political agendas.

"Mr. Chouinard, the owner of Patagonia, is condemning what is simply a reduction in the amount of federal land under federal control, and he's calling it 'evil' while his company actually directly funds a truly evil organization, Planned Parenthood," Kuykendall tells OneNewsNow. "2ndVote has found that Patagonia donates tens of thousands of dollars to Planned Parenthood every year, and this cognitive dissonance underscores the left's moral depravity when it comes to advancing its political agenda."

Patagonia did not respond to OneNewsNow's request for comment.
