If they’re using politics as a cover to be racist, sexist, homo/transphobic, etc, then yes they absolutely are.

I don’t really care to hear or discuss politics in general, and never bring it up.

I definitely don’t need to hear what some high school dropout, who’s brain has been equally cooked by the California sun and weed thinks.

I think its lame when anyone is open about their political belief to strangers, the smart thing to do is to keep it to yourself or the people around you (who want to hear it).

I don’t really care to hear or discuss politics in general, and never bring it up.

I definitely don’t need to hear what some high school dropout, who’s brain has been equally cooked by the California sun and weed thinks.

Ironically, most people who talk politics/social issues alot use it as a way to make themselves feel smarter or superior. I guess it can be considered narcissistic behavior.

I’m all for it. It makes me appreciate some pros more and ignore others.

As a public figure or just any person on the internet, they shouldn’t be mad if they get kooked for their opinions. If you don’t want to catch heat for it, don’t put it out there. Doesn’t matter where you are on the political spectrum

Also, fuck this guy. He is so insanely wealthy and his first thought is, "How can I benefit me." This piece of shit could spend his time giving away money making people's lives better, instead his goal is to continue to cosplay financial genius because he is 5 pages into an econ 101 book.

Look up how vague his issues page is. It doesn't really say anything of substance.

Well “political” is vague.

You have some pros like Duffy or Templeton who spew the propaganda of their respected echo chambers, which is inherently political.

Then you have dudes like P Rod and Pontus Alv, who don’t say much about social issues but are very open with talking about the logistics of running a business, which is also inherently political.

To me it all kinda depends on how thought out your stances are and how well you articulate them.

No. I buy boards and stuff based on whether I like someone. If they’re like “I love Trump” then fuck them, not buying their shit. If they’re mocking people for say fuck people who love Trump then fuck those people too.

I do not care the opinions of pros. If they on the level than that just a plus. 99.9% of the time we are not on the same page.

I am kinda against riding for brands. Especially new shit. New shit isn't worth anything. Old shit isn't "cool"

Old heads have bad attitudes. I know I was there.

O
I care more about the person who landed their first kickflip today. I want them to want anarchy and peace and unity.

Lame. 
Unless of course their political opinion 95% agrees with mine, then I’m all for it.

People only care about a famous person being too "political" when the politics they preach go against what you believe.

The people who squeal that Kapernick (for example) needs to shut up and play football never complain about Toby Keith or Ted Fucking Nugent.

In general the idea that famous people aren't allowed to speak their minds politically is weak shit.

I don't really care what pros do besides entertain me in their skateboard VHS cassette tapes.

I will say though, since Instagramz, I've definitely learned to pay less attention to these dudes outside of just watching them grind and flippity flip flap their wheelie boards

Guess it depends on how obnoxious they are about it. Even if their opinions are generally in-line with mine, still find it annoying if they are smug/obnoxious about it.
