    Conservatives are more than holding their own on boycotts.

    #DumpKelloggs: Liberals: 1, Conservatives: 2


    In late 2016, Kellogg’s decided to shoot itself in the foot by proactively cutting advertising ties with Breitbart over the values of the news agency failing to mirror the values of the cereal giant. In the fallout of the public relations war, however, it wasn’t Breitbart that was left licking its wounds.

    While Breitbart was able to continue to get advertising from other sources, the company that profits off of sugary cereals fattening up America’s children came across as slightly out of touch with the values of its own consumer base.

    While Kellogg’s denies that Breitbart’s Twitter campaign, #DumpKelloggs, has anything to do with its 53 million dollar loss in the fourth quarter of 2016, common sense says otherwise.

    Scoring the Growing Absurdity of Political Boycotts: Liberals vs. Conservatives - OpsLens

    Trump Brand Products Soar: Liberals: 1, Conservatives: 3

    To be fair, I’m just going to lump all Trump products that have been boycotted by leftist groups since the election into one point on the scoreboard for conservatives. First it was Nordstrom, who discontinued the Ivanka Trump clothing line. Not long after, the First Daughter’s brand skyrocketed to the top of sales in several categories, to include the number one best-selling perfume on Amazon. Despite being the highest-priced women’s fragrance on the site’s top 20 list, it currently sits at number two in popularity. Meanwhile, Nordstrom’s stock figures spiked in early February but rebounded with higher than expected numbers this month.

    Following the National Organization for Women’s Twitter campaign #StopTrumpWine, Trump Wine reportedly went from being fully stocked to sold out at all but two Wegmans grocery stores in the entire state of Virginia. Trump bought the vintage in 2011 and gave it to son Eric to manage. By the way, Trump hotels appear to be doing just fine, judging by the lack of stories to state otherwise.

    Best of the Rest:

    Advertisement

    The Under Armour CEO publicly supported his president’s economic plans for the country before caving to the bullying effect of leftist media to avoid losing their roster of liberal celebrity athlete spokespeople. Advantage: Liberals

    Following Target’s public statement in support of transgender bathroom sharing in June of last year, an American Family Association petition gathered over 1.5 million signatures in addition to Target’s stock crashing to the lowest levels since 2014. Since the political stunt, the company has lost an estimated $15 billion. Advantage: Conservatives

    The Christian-friendly fast food chain already notorious for being closed on Sundays, Chick-Fil-A, had their best single day of sales ever after supporters rallied in the face of leftist calls to boycott the brand following their position on gay marriage going public. Even Huffington Post couldn’t avoid reporting on the fact that the boycott backfired, with one store notably having to close its doors early after running out of chicken. Advantage: Conservatives

    Starbucks has been no stranger to political controversy. They’ve tried everything from removing Christmas from their cups during the holiday season to awkwardly implementing their Race Together campaign in which they urged their baristas to engage with customers on race relations when most people just wanted a cup of coffee. Then came President Trump’s refugee policies. Following a pledge to hire 10,000 refugees from terror-prone Middle Eastern countries, a Yougov BrandIndex survey showed that potential consumers of the brand dropped from 30% to just 24% while actual sales transactions dropped 2% nationwide. Advantage: Conservatives

    Funny blacks used to moralize about boycotting x y or z cause. Boycotting is GOOD, it cuts both ways. let's boycott the NFL or their sponsors. Put the shoe on the other foot, BOYCOTT the NFL and their sponsors.

    Money is leaving the NFL which means it is leaving the networks that own the media. The media knows which hand feeds it. The side that is standing with the kneeling and spitting is not the money side.
