David Hogg Bullied Publix, Who Caved to the Pressure, Now the Free Market is Delivering a Powerful Response

They better get the message.

Last week David Hogg, the anti-gun Parkland survivor and gun control activist, attempted to bully the Publix grocery chain into coughing up a million bucks for a donation and an anti-NRA pledge after discovering they backed a pro-gun GOP candidate running for Florida governor.

The chain ended up caving in to the pressure, as most big businesses do when they fear backlash from consumers who pay their bills, opting to stop sending campaign donations on Friday. However, the free market has responded to the situation and it’s powerful.

Publix spokesman Dwaine Steven told the Orlando Sentinel on Friday his employer never meant to upset its customer base with its political donations — which crossed party lines — so Publix executives decided to stop all political donations.

“We would never knowingly disappoint our customers or the communities we serve,” he said. “As a result, we decided earlier this week to suspend corporate-funded political contributions as we reevaluate our giving processes.”

For many Americans, Publix’s decision was another slap in the face, just one more entity caving to the liberal outrage mob. So they decided to hit back.

Thousands of Americans have voiced their displeasure over Publix’s lack of backbone and have decided to take their grocery needs to other stores. It’s a counter-boycott of sorts, but really it’s just a free-market reaction to Publix’s decision.

How ironic is it that the very thing Publix sought to prevent, losing customers, is exactly what happened when they decided to cave in to the pressure presented by a small group of radical gun haters?

Listen, the Publix chain can support whoever they want, it’s a free country, after all. Well, for the moment anyway. However, that doesn’t mean that their choices won’t come with negative consequences.

A company that so easily and quickly caves into pressure and abandons it’s principles is a company that cannot and should not be trusted. It’s obvious that money matters more than integrity for this business, and that’s dangerous to our movement.

Hopefully, after having their wallet zapped, they’ll come to their senses and not allow themselves to be bullied by the left into compromise, especially on important issues and values.

Cable News Blasted for Conjuring Controversy in Columbus Police Shooting

This is just dirty.

The sad truth of the matter, when it comes to the mainstream media, is that they are more successful when we are more emotional. It’s a dirty trick of human biology:  The chemicals in our brain that allow us to feel joy, sorrow, humor, and fury are just similar enough to one another that we become addicted to them, one and all.  Feeling something stimulates our self-awareness, and we learn to crave it. So, when you tune into CNN and what they are saying angers you, they’re planting small hooks in your noggin, reeling you in to watch the commercials that pay all of their salaries. If you watch Fox, however, and you find yourself enthusiastically cheering after a host or guest has a mic drop moment, your brain again finds what it’s looking for, and here you are seeing your 14th Progressive commercial of the day. All of the big networks know this and actively participate in this salacious shamanism, and sometimes they cross the line. Liberal outlets HuffPost and AJ+ omitted key details or pushed false narratives in their videos about the fatal police shooting of a Black teenager in Columbus, Ohio on Tuesday. HuffPost failed to note the woman who was shot, Ma’Khia Bryant, pushed another female to the ground and lunged at another with a knife when police arrived at the scene. The misleading HuffPo video was accompanied by the following text, which appeared to paint the police as the villain. “Black girl killed by police,” the text read. “Police in Columbus, OH shot & killed a Black teen around the same time the verdict was read in the Derek Chauvin trial. Body-camera footage showed an officer firing several times at Ma’Khia Bryant before she collapsed to the ground. The video also showed a knife falling next to the…

Derek Chauvin on Suicide Watch, Away From General Population

Chauvin’s incarceration will certainly not be a pleasant one once he leaves isolation.

There is little doubt that Derek Chauvin is going to have a bad time in jail.  The former police officer was just convicted on several charges stemming from his involvement in the death of George Floyd, with one those charges being murder in the 3rd degree. Chauvin’s sentence won’t be known for some time, likely about 8 weeks, so there’s no telling just where he’ll wind up serving his time.  But ex-cops don’t fare all that well in certain prisons, and there will almost certainly be an incentive to tangle with the guy while he’s on the inside. For the time being, however, Chauvin is being kept separate from the general population, out of fear for his safety. Derek Chauvin has been pictured in his first mugshot taken at the maximum security prison in Minnesota where he’s on suicide watch after being found guilty on all three counts of murder and manslaughter in the death of George Floyd. The Minnesota Department of Corrections released the new booking photo on Wednesday morning as Chauvin woke up from his first night at MCF-Oak Park Heights. The 45-year-old dressed in an orange jumpsuit appeared tired and puffy-eyed with a frown and his hair in disarray. The mugshot was soon making the rounds online. https://twitter.com/ABC/status/1384867831792209921?s=20 Chauvin is expected to file an appeal in the coming weeks, possibly on the grounds that he could not have possibly received a fair trial with the statements being made in public by politicians such as Maxine Waters of California.
