What Gibson Guitars Did with the Wood the Government Returned

 Yet another example of Dear Leader's Fascism


"In 2011, the Department of Justice conducted raids on the Tennessee facilities of the famed Gibson Guitar company and confiscated large quantities of tonewood that had been imported from India and Madagascar.  The action included armed SWAT teams, with automatic weapons, who apparently feared being garroted with a guitar string by an enraged Gibson employee.


... this same kind of tonewood is used by other guitar makers such as CF Martin and Company and Fender.  Those other companies were not raided.  The principle difference seems to be that those companies contributed to Democratic candidates, while Henry Juszkiewicz, the CEO of Gibson, gives openly to Republicans, and Gibson has plants in a right-to-work state."
