Silly liberals!  Two can play the boycott game!

What’s happening to freedom of thought in America?

What’s happening to the concept that we all have a right to our own opinions?

The fascist liberals are trying to squash any and all opposition to their way of thinking.

boycotts 1

Liberal fascists believe:

If someone doesn’t agree with you, verbally harass them in public.

If someone doesn’t agree with you, physically harass them in public.

If someone doesn’t agree with you, physically attack them.

boycott 5

If someone doesn’t agree with you, attack their livelihood by boycotting their business.

If someone doesn’t agree with you, put them on a list to prevent them from making a living.

Does this sound like things we do in “the land of the free and the home of the brave?”

Regarding boycotting…, there’s “boycotting” and then there’s “boycotting.”

We all “boycott” things on a daily basis.  We may eat somewhere, not like the food, the service, or the attitude there and choose to not go there again, or “boycott” that business.

We may watch a TV show, determine it’s no good, and “boycott” that show by not watching it again.

Ain’t that right, “Will and Grace?”

Liberal fascist boycotting involves pressuring others to stop frequenting a business or supporting someone financially solely because of their political beliefs or actions.

Like I said…, two can play that game…, ain’t that right, Dixie Chicks?

boycott 4

According to Andrew O’Reilly of Fox News, “Trump donors and their businesses face fresh wave of boycotts, public shaming.”

“Public shaming?” It’s only public shaming IF you’re ashamed of what you’re doing.

“Investor Stephen Ross is causing Equinox and SoulCycle to face backlash over his decision to host a fundraiser for the 2020 Trump reelection campaign; Tracee Carrasco reports.”

“The 2020 presidential election is already getting nasty — and not just for the candidates.  The mud-slinging and smear campaigns also are being directed at supporters and donors, namely those with the temerity [audacity] to back President Trump. They’re facing a revived effort by Trump critics to name and shame them, with the apparent goal of hurting their businesses.”

Don’t these silly liberals know that they are drumming up more support for the people and businesses than they are driving business away?

“In one of the latest examples, a Facebook post on a page called simply ‘Ban Kenny Chesney from Pittsburgh’ threatened to make public a list of almost 100 local businesses in the Pennsylvania city that are owned by Trump supporters.”

boycotts 2

“While the page has since been taken down, a new website has been promised that will include ‘a database of Trump supporter-owned businesses in the Pittsburgh area, as well as tips for how to get those specific businesses closed down,’ according to local media.”

Oh goodie!  Now I’ll know where TO GO when I visit Pittsburgh!

Like I said before…, stupid and fascist is as stupid and fascist does.

‘“They want to cost people their livelihoods just because you don’t agree with them politically,’ Sam DeMarco, Allegheny County councilman and chairman of the county’s Republican Party, told the local CBS affiliate. ‘It’s not just absurd, I believe it’s dangerous.’”

“DeMarco continued, ‘People who they just don’t agree with, they want to take and punish. I absolutely believe this is a fascist behavior, and I totally reject it.’”

“A similar social media-driven boycott was directed at one of Connecticut’s most popular pizza parlors.”

“Facebook user Lorna Steele posted a message last month asking her followers to join her ‘in no longer funding his hate,’ referring to Frank Pepe Pizzeria and co-owner Gary Bimonte, a Trump supporter. She posted her message alongside a picture of Bimonte holding a ‘Deplorables for Trump’ sign and a message he posted thanking the president for the American steel piping being used in construction jobs.”

“The push to shame Trump supporters burst into the headlines last month when Rep. Joaquin Castro, D-Texas, brother of presidential candidate Julian Castro, tweeted out a list of Trump donors and their employers.”

“The tweet, however, backfired when it was discovered that one of the donors on the list also had contributed to Castro’s own congressional campaign.”

Wah, wah, wah, waaaaaaah.

“Wayne Harwell, the owner of a local real estate development company whose name appeared on the list Castro shared, told Fox News in a phone interview last month that he donated money to Castro’s congressional campaign. But he suggested that after Castro outed him in his bid to shame Trump supporters, he would no longer be supporting Castro.”

In the words of Foghorn Leghorn, “I say, I say…, no need to be getting that upset over a little old error like that, Mr. Harwell.  After all, we know money talks and BS walks!”

boycott 8

Typical liberal fascist hypocrites.

“Along with local businesses, major companies have also been hit with recent boycotts.  Fitness brands like Equinox and SoulCycle were the target of calls for a boycott after it came to light that one of the companies’ biggest investors was Stephen Ross, who hosted a fundraiser for Trump’s 2020 reelection campaign in early August at his Hamptons mansion.”

“While the two companies – which have long tried to cultivate an inclusive image – have attempted to distance themselves from the backlash, it was reported that both faced a deluge of membership cancellations and complaints.”

Oh yeah?  Who exactly “reported” this?  The old “it was reported” line is an old “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” ploy as well.

“Other big-name brands to face a boycott backlash for having owners and CEOs who support Trump range from Home Depot and Uline [Uline is a privately held company which offers shipping and other business supplies. It has approximately 6,000 employees and is headquartered in Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin.] to Taco Bell and Nathan’s Famous hot dogs.”

Ha!  Okay…, I want to see all of the liberals give up their Doritos Locos Tacos and their Crunch Wrap Supremes!

boycott 7

Does their hypocrisy know no bounds?!

“Meanwhile, Hollywood has also reentered the fray after actress Debra [‘The Mess’] Messing and her ‘Will & Grace’ co-star Eric [‘McClueless’] McCormack called for a media outlet to publish the names of people attending a fundraiser for Trump.”

This was supposedly called for to prevent these evil, conservative, people from getting work there in Hollywood.

Messing and McCormack won’t have to worry about running into any of these people, however, as their show has been cancelled.

Wah, wah, wah, waaaaaaah.

Isn’t karma a beautiful thing?!

Well, well, well, what have we here?  A petition to oust Nancy Pelosi surpasses 100,000 signatures?!

According to the WorldNetDaily (WND.com) website, “Amid all the talk about impeaching President Trump, more than 100,000 people have signed a White House “We the People” petition calling for the impeachment of Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, accusing her of treason.”

Be still my little ole’ conservative heart!  But wait…, what’s a “White House ‘We the People’ Petition?”

It turns out that “The ‘We the People’ Petitioning System,” on the official White House website, was actually initiated by the Obama administration!

Okay…, so if Obama initiated it, it can’t be bashed as being some type of conservative shenanigans!

Gee…, thanks Obama!

The “Petitioning System” promises an official response for every petition that gathers more than 100,000 signatures within 30 days.

This Pelosi petition has garnered over 100,000 signatures after just its first 11 days!

This particular petition, “…was created by a citizen identified only as ‘M.G.,’ and it accuses Pelosi of being a traitor to the American people who is beholden to the interests of illegal immigrants, Big League Politics reported.”

“The petition further blames the San Francisco Democrat for the recent partial government shutdown. It argues she refused to negotiate with President Trump over funding for border security, causing many federal employees to work without pay for more than a month.”

‘“Illegal aliens are enemies that invade our country with drugs, human trafficking, and terrorist causing death and crime to American citizens,’ the petition states.”

‘“Nancy Pelosi adheres to these enemies by voting for and providing them aid and comfort through Sanctuary policies funded by US citizen tax dollars, and refuses to protect American people by refusing to fund our border wall, leaving our borders open and unsafe.’”

“After further complaints about the House speaker, it concludes with, ‘IMPEACH Pelosi for treason!’”

Big League Politics noted the process for impeaching a member of the House requires a majority vote of the chamber, meaning it’s unlikely to happen under the current Democrat majority.

Darn it!

These rules always have to wreck all the fun!

I will have to keep my eyes peeled for the “official response,” however.

“LOCK HER UP! (Both of them!)

“LOCK HER UP! (Both of them!)

“LOCK HER UP! (Both of them!)

You know the old saying: “If you can’t beat ‘em, silence ‘em!”

So you don’t remember it quite like that?  Me neither.  But then again I’m not a democrat/liberal.

If you’re a democrat/liberal, the ends justify the means.  There is no concern about being fair…, just winning.  If they can’t beat you fair and square, they’ll change the rules, change the playing field, or just have you taken out of the game.

In this instance, we’re referring to cable news ratings.  Specifically between the three major cable news networks: CNN, Fox News and MSNBC.

According to Mark Joyella, who is a contributor for Forbes.com, “Fox News Crushes The Cable News Competition In October Ratings.”

Just to be clear, Fox News channel routinely “crushes” CNN and MSNBC, and it’s been that way for years now.  What we’re really talking about in October is an annihilation, or a complete domination.

Most of the time, Fox News Channel’s competitors can point to something and say, “we beat them here” or “we beat them there.  It could be just an hour slot during the day or a special weekend show.  Earlier this year MSNBC’s prime-time “star” Rachel Maddow turned in her show’s best week ever, and the liberal media were all popping the champagne.  But that was then and this is now.

Joyella confessed that, “Fox News wiped the floor with CNN and MSNBC in October, beating the combined ratings of the two networks in prime-time, and delivering wall-to-wall wins across all key day parts. Fox News also saw its ratings climb in October from the same month a year ago, as its competition, with few exceptions, saw significant viewership drops.”

See what I mean?  Complete and utter domination.

For the seventh month in a row, Fox News host Sean Hannity (the unrivaled King of Cable News) was the most-watched host in cable news, with a total audience of 3.495 million.

Fox News then continued by running the table with the top-five most-watched shows in prime, with Hannity followed by Tucker Carlson (3.231 million), Laura Ingraham (2.973 million), The Five (2.838 million) and Special Report with Bret Baier (2.668 million).

Several Fox News shows, including The Ingraham Angle, The Story with Martha MacCallum, Outnumbered with Harris Faulkner, The Daily Briefing with Dana Perino and Fox News at Night with Shannon Bream had all-time high ratings in October.

Overall, Fox News viewership was up +25 percent in October (in total viewers).  Among viewers 25-54 years old, the key demographic coveted by advertisers, Fox grew compared to October 2017 by +13 percent, while CNN was down -11 percent and MSNBC was down -19 percent.

MSNBC had several of its key shows, including Morning Joe, All In with Chris Hayes, The Rachel Maddow Show, The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell and The 11th Hour with Brian Williams return their lowest-rated month of 2018 in October.

MSNBC was largely uncontested for second place overall (If you ain’t first, you’re last!), beating CNN among total viewers in prime time and total day viewership for the 13th consecutive month.

You can infer whatever you want from these numbers, but in any case it isn’t good for the state of “biased, liberal, fake news.”

So, how are the liberals and the “biased, liberal, fake news media” responding?

They are sicking the liberal media group “Media Matters” on Fox News, in an attempt to mount negative pressure on their advertisers!

According to Brian Stelter at CNN Business, “Media Matters’ president Angelo Carusone, who previously led boycotts against Glenn Beck and others, said on Monday that Fox’s programming ‘is only getting more extreme and volatile,’ and that’s why he is taking action now.”

“‘Fox News’ never-ending focus on demonizing political opponents and front-line communities, echoing [President] Trump and framing the struggle against these groups as an urgent matter of life or death, makes the network an increasingly bad business decision for advertisers,’ Carusone said.”

“Liberal critics of Fox, like Carusone, have pointed a finger directly at Fox, accusing the media company of inflaming tensions across the country.”

“Neera Tanden, the president of the liberal Center for American Progress, tweeted on Sunday, ‘It really is time to boycott Fox News advertisers. Who has the list? I’m game.’”

“Media Matters has been moving in this direction for a while. The group challenged Laura Ingraham and Sean Hannity’s advertisers in the past.”

“In his statement on Monday, Carusone named ‘major Fox News advertisers’ like Expedia, McDonalds and Capital One.  Media Matters also published a list of other advertisers on its website.

Carusone urged the companies to ‘listen to their customers’ and ‘consider suspending their relationship with Fox News until the network makes meaningful changes to curb its propagandistic narratives that intentionally spread disinformation and incentivize violence.’”

These accusations are typical for “the swamp.”  They charge others with doing exactly what they are guilty of doing in an effort to deflect attention from themselves and shut down and silence anyone who disagrees with them or anyone who challenges their liberal narrative.

In a statement to CNN, Marianne Gambelli, the president of ad sales for Fox News and Fox Business, said “we cannot and will not allow voices to be censored by agenda-driven intimidation efforts.”

“Media Matters continues to turn a blind eye to every television network but Fox News since it’s the only outlet that doesn’t subscribe to their extreme left-wing political agenda,” she said.

Fox News has quite a bit of experience fending off advertiser pressure campaigns like this, however

Sean Hannity has been outspoken in his opposition to boycotts of all kinds.

“EVERY American should see the danger of politically motivated efforts and boycotts to silence speech they disagree with,” he said.

Hang in there FOX!  Without you we would be at the mercy of the “biased, liberal, fake news media,” and their uncontested “fake news” would sadly become just “the news” again, and our country would be worse off because of it.
