For years conservatives have been repeatedly told that boycotts of the products of large companies never work. How could a few conservatives not buying such products really affect the bottom line of huge, often multinational, corporations? We just have to accept that there is nothing we can do to let a company know loudly and clearly that we oppose its endorsement of the radical LGBT and other woke agendas.
Yet recently this thinking has been shown to be totally untrue. In the cases of Disney and Bud Light, boycotts of their products over their support of the radical LGBT agenda have been extremely successful. Indeed, since Disney came out strongly for the LGBT agenda last year and people began boycotting its products, its stock value has plummeted by 33%, its streaming services have been losing $1 billion a quarter, two pro-LGBT Disney movies (Strange World and Lightyear) have lost hundreds of millions of dollars, and Disney has dropped from being a top internet search for travel destinations. In regard to Bud Light, since it came out in April that it hired transgender activist Dylan Mulvany—a biological man who thinks he is a woman—as a “female” product ambassador and boycotts of it began, its sales have plummeted 24% and the stock price of its parent corporation has fallen by 12%. So boycotts really can work when there is a concerted effort to let a company know that its customers do not appreciate its support of leftwing ideologies.
But we must keep the momentum going. All companies that support or want to support the radical LGBT agenda must know that doing so will cost them millions—if not billions—of dollars. Only boycotts modeled on those against Disney and Bud Light have any chance of getting companies to once again champion traditional values or at least remain neutral in the culture wars.
What are some of the other companies we should be targeting with boycotts? First and foremost Nike and Mabeline, which have each defiantly hired Mulvaney as a product ambassador. Also Target, which allows biological men to use female restrooms and proudly markets to minors chest binders, packing underwear, tuck clothing, and other products that promote girls identifying as boys and vice versa. And Major League Baseball, whose Los Angeles Dodgers are hosting an anti-Catholic pride night featuring drag queens who dress as nuns. Also, all the other companies who daily push the woke agenda in our faces.
And just as importantly, we need to loudly support public figures, such as professional athletes, who stand up to the radical LGBT agenda. For example, we need to publicly thank people like Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Ivan Provorov and Tampa Rays pitchers Jason Adam, Jalen Beeks, Brooks Raley, Jeffrey Springs and Ryan Thompson, who all refused to wear pro-LGBT clothing at their teams’ Pride nights.
After seeing the successful cases of Disney and Bud Light, we need to continue boycotts of companies that likewise support the radical LGBT and other woke agendas as such boycotts really do make a difference. And let’s support those brave individuals who are not afraid to stand up for traditional values. Working together we can make our voices heard. So let’s keep the boycotts rolling!
