After months of false accusations and being stalked on Facebook by his former employer, former co-workers, Antifa, Muslims and other leftist operatives, in June 2017, Steven J. Baldassari, founder of American Patriots Apparel and American Patriots for God and Country was fired from his corporate America back-office banking job of six years. The unwell left made up fake news stories about Steve. They played to their delusions pretending that the truth he was speaking in public squares and posting on social media was hateful. In other words, the truth triggered them.

The left’s way of coping with any potential guilt or wrongdoing on their part from sabotaging Steve’s life and career was to say that they had “tried to warn him” to do as he was told on multiple occasions. They wanted him to be compliant, to be submissive to their will and above all else, they wanted Steve to be silent and not speak the truth about anything they supported that was wrong or about anything in general that they deemed offensive.
As if it isn’t bad enough that the wicked left seeks to discriminatorily silence right-wing workers like Steve inside of work hours while letting the left leaning employees say and do whatever they wish, they took it a step further and were trying to silence Patriot Steve Baldassari outside of work hours on his own time.
Steve refused and continued to stand for the truth. Mr. Baldassari is a firm believer that “silence is consent and silence where life and liberty is at stake, where by a timely protest we could stay the destroyer’s hand, and do not do so, is as criminal as giving actual aid to the oppressor, for it answers his or her purpose.” That is something you would think everyone, even on the left would agree with considering the aforementioned quote stems from Ernestine Rose (a pioneering women’s rights advocate of the 1800’s. But no…
…Instead, Steve’s former employer allied with the Massachusetts Government (more specifically the Department of Unemployment Assistance), to deny him unemployment benefits. The reasons they listed for doing so were “Social Media” and “Social Networking”. In other words, they didn’t approve of what Steve Baldassari says on Social Media or who he was networking with.
As a result of the evil left’s forced financial troubles, Steve was forced to sell everything he owned and move from Massachusetts to Florida (with only one car load of belongs that he had left) where the cost of living was more affordable. Steve struggled continuously to find work and struggles to this day.
It’s become quite apparent that Baldassari has been blacklisted by Corporate America because of his conservative beliefs and he believes with all of his heart that is why he can’t find work despite having applied to hundreds of jobs over the past couple of years, even jobs outside of corporate. Tired of spinning his wheels and being held down by the politically motivated left, Steve decided to take matters into his own hands.
Knowing that American Judeo-Christian values are not the problem, Steve went all in with his God-centered patriotic passions, and in September 2018 American Patriots Apparel was born. The rest as they say is history!
