Goodyear Tires Permits Black Lives Matter T-Shirts But Has "Zero Tolerance" for MAGA and Blue Lives Matter T-Shirts;
Trump Asks for Boycott

There is no other way. I'm so tired of squish Republicans refusing to boycott anything just because they didn't like the religious conservatives' boycotts in the eighties.

These corporations are using every ounce of their influence to push leftwing politics and even put targets on conservatives.

Is it not okay to boycott your enemies?

As was said in the aughts: You might not be interested in terrorism, but terrorism is interested in you.

And a lot of conservatives -- who prefer things As They Used to Be -- may not be interested in the culture war, but the culture war is definitely interested in you.

Conservatives may strongly prefer things when corporations were not constantly aligning with the hard left, and may not want to take part in any counteraction (such as a boycott), but the only way to stop the endless recruitment of corporations into the culture war is to teach a few of them that there will be severe economic consequences for doing so.

And a big loss of sales will mean the loss of jobs of executives who allowed/pushed the shift of the company from an economic actor to primarily a political one.

And that will stop the culture war -- not endless whining that we preferred non-political corporations, but we're too dainty to ever use our economic muscle to rough up a culture warrior corporation.

Conservatives will never be free of constant bullying until they understand and accept that bullies will continue bullying until they are met with the sharp shock of resistance, preferably into the soft cartilage of their noses.

Or, alternately, we can continue to just be pussies, sissies, and c*cks who encourage bullies through our weakness.

A friend commented: So Goodyear is aligning itself with urban, and largely poor, guerrilla terrorists who do not own cars, and is taking a position against the suburban and rural voters who own all the cars?

Update: the c*cks at Twitchy are in a tizzy (as usual!) and are attacking Trump for daring to suggest that corporations that want to play in the political arena should be met with political tactics.
