The problem with this whole issue of boycotting stems from the fact that the majority say they will boycott but don't. People will continue to watch and buy tickets for sporting events, buy tickets to concerts, buy liberal driven books, buy movie tickets, watch these late night liberal tv shows and etc. The only way to really get them to take notice is when their sponsors start seeing a big decline in viewers and start cancelling or decreasing their advertising budgets.

The really sad thing is most of what's been said about the new law is wrong.

Lying is easier than actually waiting for something true to take action against.

I've noted a few things, just on here, that I do to support - or not support - some companies based on their social stances or manufacturing locations (China). I've never considered myself an activist. Most conservatives believe in the individual, from an aspect of making personal decisions and also being responsible for oneself, so conservatives are at a disadvantage against the group think masses of socialism.

This morning, I actually took about thirty minutes and I reached out through their websites or contact emails to a number of the principle sponsors of MLB, just those whose products/services I've actually used. Camping World, Old Dominion, Arm & Hammer, Utz Chips (sadly now the owner of Golden Flake), Blue Emu, Bud, Chevy, Evan Williams, Lysol, Scotts, Taco Bell (okay, I lied about that one), GEICO. I informed each of them that, because of MLB's actions, I wouldn't be patronizing them anymore. I said that until the common sense majority stands up and says enough to kneejerk politically-motivated actions by companies, it will only get worse. I've had to produce an I.D. to vote my entire life. It's common sense. I said that I wouldn't patronize companies advocating for something different. Also common sense.

That's all.

Oh I know what their intentions are. They wanted a globally homogenized world that is essentially a giant consumeristic shopping mall. A world that is socially anarchic, yet totalitarian and hostile towards anyone who supports any sort of moral code that doesn't espouse the right of some mentally deranged transvestite freak to wave his dildo in front of your kid. Will they get that world? In my opinion, no. Their time of ruling will come to an end, as it occurs with all ruling classes in the late stages of imperial collapse.

The part that sucks however is that we are in the "darkest before dawn" stage. They are scared as shit right now and feel threatened, which means they are going to enact all sorts of draconian laws and measures to try to eradicate any perceived threat to their rule, while punishing all heretics who don't support their degenerate world view.

I read this in a millennia-old book of prophecies somewhere...

Its heroine is a global revolutionary that appealed to prostitutes and politicians alike-every rung of the social ladder.

No idea how legit this is (and it in no way excuses MLB, may even make them look worse), but...


One of their corporate sponsors? Google. And if that tweet is legit? LOL at how many of these products/services are available in GA. Anyone really think Taco Bell is going to pull out of GA? Is Flonase going to pull their product off shelves there? Idiots.

Well, considering that YouTube (owned by Google) is about to nuke the "dislike" (thumbs down) button because of Biden's White House channel getting about 85-90% dislike ratio should tell you that this tweet is valid with near-complete certainty.

How would one even know unless they were in shipping? "I'm not going to ship anything through you" versus knowing whether what you're buying was shipped through them?

{now I'm going to end up following OD trucks to see where they stop.}

Certainly giving up Utz, which I've eaten before. Golden Flake will be tough, but I've actually gone more toward the kettle chips from a New England company - and I don't eat that many snacks - so yes. Their pork rinds will be the toughest, but that's about two bags a year, so maybe not. I've fallen out of favor with Chevy for trucks since the whole fuel pump debacle and them not standing behind it, so yes. Budweiser...when I'm hot and just want a light beer, I probably chose Bud Light about half the time with Miller Lite and Mich Ultra taking the rest, so that one's easy.

None of these choices affect my life, it's just about being conscientious. If I end up with a Ford or Ram, not a big deal. Potato chips or beer choice, just not a big deal. Moving company or large deliveries, I'll just pick another. Camping equipment, many options. Fertilizer, two other easy choices. Evan Williams, not gonna miss it, I was an infrequent partaker in that.

Diversification and globalization have basically removed the already weak effects of any type individual boycott

if you choose to boycott on principle for your own peace of mind, great. If you choose to boycott because you think it will change the entity providing the product or service you are naive or delusional

The problem with boycotting is that you need to have a viable substitute to go to. The problem in the United States today is that practically all viable substitutes offered by alternative corporations are filled with pozzed shitlibs with MBAs from pozzed universities all around the country. This is especially true with the droves of ivy league dolts who get pipelined into the most powerful corporations and governmental institutions in the United States.

This would be a long-term project, but I would propose that individuals rely more so on local businesses as much as they can. I'd also recommend that anti leftist governments begin forming national coalitions to induce sanctions on corporations that decide it is their duty to act as legislative authorities. Wanna mouth off Delta Airlines? Well damn, I guess that sucks for you when Georgia, Alabama, Florida, Mississippi, Texas, Arkansas, and Tennessee enact a brand new tax for your airlines.

Fight fire with fire. Delta isn’t (can’) move their HQ anytime soon. Same with Coca-Cola.
