New Leftist attack on the NRA

Brought to us via a George Soros project, of course.   The newspaper that soiled my driveway this morning held a gloating article from the USA Today Network about all sorts of big companies severing ties (loose ones at that) with the NRA.   I had heard NPR gloating over it on Friday:

As a groundswell grows against the National Rifle Association in the aftermath of last week’s school massacre in Parkland, Fla., several businesses say they are ending their partnerships with the gun advocacy group.

The brands — ranging from insurance companies to airlines to rental car agencies — announced their decisions on social media, many apparently in direct response to tweets demanding change under the trending hashtag #boycottNRA.

Activists are seeking to name and shame business affiliates of the group.

This was kicked off by ThinkProgress, a Soros-funded Leftist webzine.   Going after corporations with connections to the target is what Big Gay did to the Boy Scouts of America.

I want everyone who is not a Leftist to know what is going on.   If you have any influence with the companies who are severing ties with the NRA, or even if you are just willing to put a note on their facebook page, it would be good to see some push-back.

This could become serious.  Here is what the Washington Post had to say:

But the boycott inspired by the Florida shooting massacre has stalled at the first stronghold of resistance: None of the video-streaming giants, Apple, Google’s YouTube, or Amazon (the company’s founder, Jeffrey P. Bezos, owns the The Washington Post) have acknowledged a petition and viral demands to take NRA videos offline.

If they do, and the world’s largest tech corporations effectively declare the NRA a pariah, boycotters have proposed plans to advance on the gun rights group’s power centers: its political capital and massive funding, which for decades have made the NRA one of the most feared lobbies in the United States.

    The boycotters have this Twitter page, where they list the companies that immediately capitulated when they were first approached.  (I added those weenies’ names to the tags on this post.)

  2. I’ve already sent messages to two of the miscreant corporations that are boycotting the NRA, notifying them of my new effort to replace their products, and I heaped some shame on them.

  4. I had a reason to check out Site R> this evening, and I was rewarded by a really good post by a person who is a new member there.  Worth a read, I think, mostly about mass media and why they promoted one school shooting story but ignored another school shooting story. The first page of discussion was rewarding also:
