  • Disney Is Crashing and Burning and According to New Data It's Likely Thanks to Conservatives

    Disney went from being the "Magic Kingdom" to the "Tragic Kingdom" in just a few short years. The once uncontested king of family entertainment infused itself with leftist politics, DEI practices, and LGBT activism to the point where it's become nigh unrecognizable. As such, Disney's self-inflicted wounds have it bleeding out and despite talk of healing itself, no steps have been made to do so. [snip] According to the poll, 60 percent of Republicans have an unfavorable opinion of the company with 35 percent having a "very unfavorable" opinion. Democrats have almost a mirror opposite view with 61 percent favorability...

    Woke managers are now much more vulnerable to shareholder litigation. An actuary is a professional with advanced mathematical skills who deals with the measurement and management of risk and uncertainty. Their calculations analyze historical data and gauge the likelihood of future events. Setting accurate insurance prices and avoiding losses depend on their calculations. SNIP Another kind of wildfire is active in the country, one that is destroying shareholder value. This conflagration has been triggered by woke management. For example, an $83 billion a year consumer goods provider allowed its razor subsidiary, with a client base of mostly males, to launch...

    LGBT Pride displays and merchandise at the retailer Target recently provoked controversy, including calls for boycotts and, in some cases, apparent anti-LGBT harassment and property destruction. This has been followed by apparent pro-LGBT threats of violence against the company after it removed the merchandise from some stores. Now, attorneys general from 14 states and the District of Columbia have written to the CEO of Target voicing support for its LGBT Pride merchandise and warning that some actions against Target or its employees can have legal consequences

    Recently a number of politically motivated business strategies have prompted boycotts of various stores and products. The two most well-known have been Anheuser-Busch and Target. Some people say that these boycotts won’t last (despite the Anheuser-Busch effort going into its second month, with the company’s stock price falling over 20%), but it is important for them to be effective that they do last.By sticking with the boycotts, people are once more finding their voices. Mainstream voices have been squelched at the ballot boxes with information damaging to certain candidates being hidden at election time, the expansion of mail-in ballots without...
  • Trump Jr, GOP under fire for going soft on Bud Light boycotts: No interest in 'pushing back'

    Critics are slamming a powerful GOP committee and Donald Trump Jr. after apparent attempts to squelch widespread boycotts of Bud Light over its partnership with transgender activist Dylan Mulvaney. Trump Jr. called for an end to the boycotts of the beer last week, citing how Bud Light’s parent company, Anheuser-Busch, has a history of donating to Republicans. On Saturday, the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) quietly deleted a tweet and fundraising page where people could donate money and receive a drink koozie, the Daily Beast reported Saturday. "Thanks to Dylan Mulvaney, we can all finally admit that Bud Light tastes...

    A Wyoming news site claims more than a third of the small-town bars they surveyed are experiencing boycotts of Bud Light beer following the company's ad partnership with trans influencer, Dylan Mulvaney. After finding bars throughout larger Wyoming towns were not experiencing a drop off in Bud Light business, the Cowboy State Daily decided to go deeper and consult 14 bars in small towns. Their findings showed that out of 12 bars that responded, five had seen changes in the amount of customers buying Bud Light ranging from barely discernible to very severe. 'Two of the 14 declined to comment....

Land Rover, IHOP, Ancestry.com, Just For Men, Minted, Smile Direct, Pacific Life, ScotteVest, Nerd Wallet, TD Ameritrade, Bowflex, CareerBuilder, Zenni and the Chase United MileagePlus Explorer card had as of Tuesday afternoon all released statements saying that they would no longer advertise on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” The retreat from Carlson’s program came as liberal activists and organizations pressured companies to abandon the show.

    In 2017, Nandini Jammi helped launch a company called Sleeping Giants to pressure corporate advertisers into boycotting conservative media. With little more than a Twitter account, a Facebook group and a gift for incendiary rhetoric, the company reportedly prompted a range of corporations, from Pfizer to Walmart, to pull advertising from Fox News and other right-leaning outlets. Now, with boycotts becoming a fixed tactic, including secondary boycotts targeting states with new Republican-backed voting laws, Jammi has transitioned from aggressor to protector: advising companies on how to avoid becoming targets. Her new enterprise, “Check My Ads,” says it provides “brand safety...

    Coca-Cola has paused its controversial diversity plan — that included penalties on outside law firms if they failed to meet racial diversity quotas — after intense backlash. The pause comes after the orchestrator of the plan, Coke’s former general counsel Bradley Gayton, abruptly resigned last month after less than a year on the job and as criticism of the quotas mounted. Some questioned whether Gayton’s policies violated Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which says employers can’t treat people differently based on their race. Coca-Cola hired Gayton in September 2020 after spending nearly 30 years as the...

    The NCAA Board of Governors issued a statement on Monday confirming explicitly that which it has only evidenced in the past by its decision-making — the NCAA will not schedule championship events in states that pass legislation ensuring that female athletes will be provided the opportunity to compete against other female athletes — not including “transgender” female athletes.When determining where championships are held, NCAA policy directs that only locations where hosts can commit to providing an environment that is safe, healthy and free of discrimination should be selected. We will continue to closely monitor these situations to determine whether NCAA...

    A week into the fiasco over Georgia's election law, most Americans want to know: just who are these woke CEOs listening to? Not to their shareholders, who can't make a profit when their companies alienate half of the country. Not to lawyers or legislators, who could set them straight on what the policy actually does. And certainly not to U.S. consumers, who are sending a resounding message that they're done with businesses who can't check their radicalism at the door long enough to read a 98-page piece of legislation. "It's insanity," Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-Ga.) agreed on "Washington Watch." Like...

    After initially supporting corporate boycotts against Georgia, activist and failed gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams seems to have done an about-face. After the state’s Republican leadership enacted voting laws, several corporations including Major League Baseball and Delta Airlines have responded by engaging in the usual empty virtue-signaling to pander to Democrats who are pretending the legislation is a return to Jim Crow.Last week, the voting rights activist argued against boycotts in a released statement.“I respect boycotts,” she said, “although I don’t want to see Georgia families hurt by lost events and jobs. Georgians targeted by voter suppression will be hurt as...

    Democrats certainly have an interest in weaker election laws, but is that what their frenzy in Georgia is really about? Or is there another agenda at work -- a more sinister, dangerous motive for the Left? According to Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), this isn't about the Peach State at all. It's about every state. "This disinformation has a purpose," he warned. And the only way to stop it is for every American to understand exactly what it is. "These people literally have been lying about what's in [our] legislation to drive an agenda," Governor Brian Kemp (R-Ga.) insisted on...

    I am deeply offended that big corporations are trying to bully Georgia into repealing a perfectly reasonable voting integrity law. President Biden lied about the law so egregiously that even the Bezos propaganda outlet, The Washington Post, awarded him 4 Pinocchios. But that didn’t stop some of America’s most prominent corporations from trying to bully Georgia into repealing the law, one which protects legitimate votes from being cancelled out by fraudulent votes.Now, former President Trump is calling for boycotts of the corporations that are acting as political overlords:"For years the Radical Left Democrats have played dirty by boycotting products when...

    Right now, one of the biggest threats to our Second Amendment rights doesn’t come from Congress, but from the financial industry. Banks are cutting ties with gun stores and manufacturers unless they comply with certain insane rules that have no basis in reality but lets the CEO of the bank get invited to certain parties. To make matters worse, pretty much everyone needs banking of some type. It’s how the world operates these days. So how, as gun rights supporters, can we navigate the waters of the activist financial industry? Luckily one group is helping with that, though I don’t...
  • 5 Ways Conservatives Should Fight the Culture War in 2021

    Well, 2020 has been awful. Between the riots, the Chinese Flu, and brazen voter fraud, this year has been just terrible. In times like these, it can be easy to be despondent and give up; these are the times that try men’s souls, as Thomas Paine once said. When the whole world seems arrayed against you specifically, as this year often has, it can be difficult to hold your head high and keep fighting. But that’s what the other side wants. They want you to give up and stop fighting. They want you to be dismayed by the voter fraud,...

    Has your Facebook feed been packed with protest talk the last few months? Who is the latest boycott target from the left or right? You'll hear one group discuss boycotting a business due to nonsupport of the current protest movement, and the other side wanting to boycott the same business for supporting the same protests. Neither side appears to have a firm grasp of which businesses they are supporting, defending, ranting against, or avoiding - minus the extremely high-profile brands. If a major business is not listed below, it is likely they have not publicly taken a stand one way...

    Actress Patricia Arquette is urging people to participate in a one-day economic shutdown that is designed to inflict damage on the U.S. economy and hurt President Donald Trump. Arquette isn’t the first Hollywood celebrity to advocate for damaging the U.S. economy in order to hurt President Trump, even if it means ordinary Americans will have to bear the brunt of a slowdown. Comedian Bill Maher has repeatedly said on his HBO show that he hopes the U.S. goes into a recession if it means that the Trump administration will suffer.
