Democrats love to coerce the cause of democracy, free speech, and other liberties through pressure, mob tactics, and manipulation. Entire leftist organizations, like MediaMatters, exist to intimidate companies to drop conservative figures or customers, on fears of boycotts.
In recent years, liberals have tried to cripple companies with threats of boycotts—all because those companies embrace American values. For nearly a decade, the left has boycotted Chick-Fil-A, over the owner’s Christian beliefs. Democrats have boycotted minority-owned Goya Foods, because the CEO praised Donald Trump.
These days, liberal-run companies along with Hollywood celebrities are trying to boycott the entire state of Georgia, over their recent election integrity law. The left really thinks they can interfere with the authority of a state to pass legislation, through bully moves.
So, Donald Trump called on Americans to fight fire with fire—targeting “woke” companies that are trying to deteriorate our values.
Former President Donald Trump encouraged people late on Saturday evening to boycott companies and organizations that are caving to the political left…
“For years the Radical Left Democrats have played dirty by boycotting products when anything from that company is done or stated in any way that offends them,” Trump said in a statement. “It is finally time for Republicans and Conservatives to fight back—we have more people than they do—by far!”
“Boycott Major League Baseball, Coca-Cola, Delta Airlines, JPMorgan Chase, ViacomCBS, Citigroup, Cisco, UPS, and Merck,” Trump added. “Don’t go back to their products until they relent. We can play the game better than them.” [Source: Daily Wire]
Leftist-backed boycotts always seem to fail. Over the last 10 or so years liberals have been boycotting Chick-Fil-A, it has grown to become the third-largest restaurant chain in America. Soon after Democrats announced a boycott of Goya, Americans started buying their products feverishly, clearing entire shelves.
But the same can’t be said for when conservatives boycott a company (either through a direct campaign or indirectly). We’ve seen the impact on professional sports, when fans stopped supporting them after they got “woke.” NFL took a major nosedive, once they started allowing players to kneel during the anthem. Long before the lockdowns, stadiums were practically empty where rich athletes disrespected the flag.
Imagine what will happen to companies after Donald Trump encourages Americans to boycott them? Trump listed several companies that in recent days, expressed far-left sentiments. They range from professional sports to banks to airlines. Trump called on Americans to refuse to buy their goods or services until they “relent.”
If enough Americans refuse to support these companies, they will quickly beg for mercy. Democrats think they can spout off their leftist garbage and Americans will just sit and take it. Some of them are about to learn just how disastrous it is to try to earn a profit by being a “woke” liberal.
And it’s going to hurt them, bigly.
