You have to know by now that liberals are an intolerant bunch. They are the Grinches of everything that they disagree with.
Liberals would rather have a company closed down because they disagree with its political, social, moral, or economic views even if it employed tens of thousands of people. They love to say “live and let live” when it comes to their moral and political choices, but the favor is almost never returned when it comes to companies that take a contrary opinion.
Liberals have worked to close down small business owners because of their views on same-sex marriage.
The low-key fitness company “Curves” was harassed by the pro-abortion mafia because the owners donated money to pro-life groups.
Now there is a list of ten companies that one liberal has put together as a guide to so-called Progressives to boycott. You might want to use it as your own guide:
Now that the mid-term elections are over we will have to wait another couple years to make our voices heard through the ballot box. But in the meantime there is actually a lot that we can still do to fight right wing extremism in our every day lives. One of the best ways to do that is by going after major right wing donors and their businesses and hitting them where it hurts….in their wallets.
You can actually use your hard earned dollars to send a message that reflects OUR values and priorities. I’ve listed a few of the right wing companies that are either major donors to extreme Conservative causes and candidates or that run their operations directly against core Progressive values. Now this is certainly not an exhaustive list, sadly there are many more, but this list of very common brands is certainly a good place to start. And of course another great thing you can do is topatronize Liberal businesses. But here’s some that you should definitely avoid….
This one is likely no surprise to you because their anti-gay stance has been in the news quite a bit over the past couple years. But not only are they completely against gay marriage, they also are huge donors to extreme right wing candidates and causes.
2. Hobby Lobby
Hobby Lobby is another business that has gotten a lot of media attention because of their extreme Conservative views. Hobby Lobby is not only against a woman’s right to choose, but they are also against birth control. After Obamacare was implemented they vehemently fought against the employer mandate for birth control to be included in their insurance policy. They actually took their fight all the way to the Supreme Court . . . and won.
You know, the really ironic part of this story is that Hobby Lobby and Conservatives claim that they were fighting this mandate because they are so against abortion. But without affordable access to contraception, there will surely be more abortions. I’m not sure that they thought this one all the way through… ((What the writer does not tell her readers is that these contraceptives cause abortions.))
3. Carl’s Jr.
Carl’s Jr. has been notorious for objectifying women in most of their highly sexual and controversial ads. But they also have been huge supporters of extreme anti-abortion causes. And if that’s not enough reason to avoid this fast food restaurant, they are also totally against gay rights. As a matter of fact, gay rights groups actually started calling the food “Bigot burgers” after the company’s founder, Carl Karcher, came out in support for a 1978 proposition which would have allowed school boards to fire any teacher for being gay or for advocating homosexuality. In addition Carl’s Jr. is also a big time donor for Conservative Super PACs and the Republican Party.
Over the past several years Walmart has consistently gotten into trouble for controversial practices. It is widely known that they pay their employees extremely low wages and are totally against any sort of raising of the national minimum wage. They are also famous for being anti-women. Many of their female employees have continually spoken out about wide-spread discrimination. In 2011 several female employees actually filed a class action law suit against Walmart and took it all the way to the Supreme Court.
5. Marriott Hotels
Marriott, along with their subsidiary Ritz-Carlton, are major donors to Conservative Super PACs and extreme right wing candidates. Their chairman, J.W. Marriott Jr., has contributed more than a Million dollars to Mitt Romney’s Super PAC, Restore Our Future.
