I don’t know about you, but I’m getting REALLY tired of keeping an internal list of companies that I will no longer support due to their unabashed support of political ideals that I believe are harmful to our country.
Especially when you keep in mind that, every day, that list is getting longer and longer.
What’s even more tiring is explaining to Liberals the difference between a boycott and “canceling,” seeing as they don’t seem to have the capacity to differentiate between the two.
For any Liberal reading this, boycotts have an end in mind.
If whatever company is being boycotted corrects the problems that we have with them, we can revisit our business relationship again. In business and in life, giving people or companies the chance to remedy a problem is important.
When you “cancel” somebody, there is no end. They’re canceled forever. There’s no coming back from it.
So, keeping a mental list of companies I won’t buy from isn’t hypocritical. It’s not cancel culture, it’s simply a tool of the free market. If they fix their problems, I’ll happily revisit the issue.
Keeping up my list wasn’t hard before because there were only a few names, but now even the biggest companies are almost competing to add themselves to that list.
The first to go was Nike.
The Growing List Of Wokeness
After they painted Collin Kaepernick as a martyr for social justice, I couldn’t take Nike seriously as a company anymore.
And while I didn’t burn anything or throw out my Nike products, I flat-out refused to buy anything new from them. Though, to be honest, I didn’t really own any Nike shoes before that. I spend most of my time in flip-flops (welcome to South Florida), so it wasn’t that hard of a decision to make…
However, giving up Gillette products next was a bit more challenging.
I liked Gillette razors. They’re quality stuff…
But when they tried to dunk on masculinity by calling it “toxic” and promoting softness in the gender back in 2018, I could no longer support them either.
Schick works for now…but I don’t see Gillette even caring about the loss of my revenue.
That was about the length of my list before.
Two companies (I don’t count any TV shows since I don’t really watch TV).
However, since the new Georgia voting security laws were passed, generating an unparalleled and unnecessary backlash from people accusing Georgia’s GOP of racism, more and more companies are going “woke” by buying into the narrative that these new laws are racist and suppressive.
In fact, they’re still less restrictive than even Liberal-led states like New York and Colorado. The laws simply protect the future integrity of Georgia’s elections, without denying ANYONE the right to vote.
However, that hasn’t stopped corporations from going woke and speaking out against Georgia in order to placate the Liberal mob.
When Will They Learn?
Major League Baseball, Delta Airlines, Coca-Cola, Citigroup, ViacomCBS, JPMorgan Chase, Cisco, UPS, and Merck have all made statements vowing to pull business from the state.
However, they don’t realize that many of the people and ideals they’re attacking are attached to some of their biggest customers.
It’s time to beat the Left at their own game. It’s time to pull out the “B” word and TRULY stick by it.
It’s time to boycott these companies if you believe in the Conservative values that make our country FREE.
Trump’s statement on this was clear: “For years the Radical Left Democrats have played dirty by boycotting products when anything from that company is done or states in any way that offends them. Now, they are going big time with the WOKE CANCEL CULTURE and our sacred elections/ It is finally time for Republicans and Conservatives to fight back … Don’t go back to their products until they relent.”
And he’s absolutely right…
But that means we may have to suffer a little bit.
It means that some of us need to stop watching shows or change banks or change how we shop online.
But there are alternatives.
The fact is that Conservatives are a HUGE part of the consumer base, and once we ALL start exercising our right to spend our money with companies that don’t view us as “insert Leftist label here,” they’ll start understanding that while, yes, elections have consequences…so to do actions.
If this is how it’s got to be, then this is how it’s got to be.
Sometimes, it’s better NOT to poke the sleeping bear with a stick.
And the Left and woke corporations are going to find out what happens when the bear wakes up.
Welcome to America 2021…
Welcome, to the Thunderdome.
“The thing about nonviolence is that it spreads. When you get people to participate in nonviolent action – whether it’s a fast, a march, a boycott, or a picket line – people hear you, people see you, people are learning from that action.” – Dolores Huerta
