Former President Donald Trump encouraged people late on Saturday evening to boycott companies and organizations that are caving to the political left. The former president made the statement just days after Major League Baseball announced that it was moving the All Star Game and Draft out of Atlanta, Georgia, following democratically-elected Georgia officials’ vote to enact a comprehensive new law aimed at securing the state’s elections.
“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.”
I’m not sure the [that we have far more people by far], but it doesn’t matter. There are more than enough conservatives to inflict a huge amount of economic pain on enterprises that take the left’s side in political and cultural disputes — if conservatives wake up to reality and are willing to fight back. …
I’m done drinking Coke. From now on, it’s sparkling water in its place or, if I’m desperate, an alternative soft drink produced by another company.
I hope millions of conservatives will heed Trump’s call and, to the extent feasible, boycott every enterprise that sides with the left. If only the left flexes its economic muscle, we will lose the culture and political wars in a rout.
Traditionally companies do not play politics because they stand to lose more customers than they gain by taking a political stance. Time for them to relearn that lesson.
