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.
