    Hasn't the Left always fought blacklisting? Is this political thuggery? Will this spread?

    Somewhere, Julian Castro is cackling. His stunt actually resulted in more business for those he "exposed", while demonstrating how low the anti-Trump crowd is willing to go. So I say go ahead Pittsburgh progressives.

    Unbelievable . Well, not really i guess, they will stop at nothing. Their Russia joke is over and ready to backfire , the racist BS is just BS, NONE OF their fake news stories have worked so might as well targetTrump supporters with more. Boycotts, violance , and try to destroy them . This is the left , you own it.

    Quite literally, "McCarthyism". Not surprising that liberals would adopt such a nasty and disgusting attitude these days because it worked so good back in the day. It's not okay if it's the other person doing it, just if they are the ones doing it. It's part of the "double standard" thing they have going these days.

    "During the McCarthy era, hundreds of Americans were accused of being "communists" or "communist sympathizers"; they became the subject of aggressive investigations and questioning before government or private industry panels, committees, and agencies. The primary targets of such suspicions were government employees, those in the entertainment industry, academicians, and labor-union activists. Suspicions were often given credence despite inconclusive or questionable evidence, and the level of threat posed by a person's real or supposed leftist associations or beliefs were sometimes exaggerated. Many people suffered loss of employment or destruction of their careers; some were imprisoned. Most of these punishments came about through trial verdicts that were later overturned,[3] laws that were later declared unconstitutional,[4] dismissals for reasons later declared illegal[5] or actionable,[6] or extra-legal procedures, such as informal blacklists, that would come into general disrepute."

    Maybe they'd rather take their business to Walmart than patronize local small business?

    No telling where your money spent at big corporate businesses is going to go, since it depends on thousands of individual shareholders.

    So what are you suggesting be done? Should Trump support these boycotted businesses with taxpayer dollars?

    Or maybe some very big people in red hats will show up at your house next shopping day, to make you have the right receipts.. They'll be at the votng booth next time too, totally to hekp, you understand

    I don't want to give ANY money to anyone who supports a god-cursed Nazi bastard, and I welcome anyone telling me who that is

    Didn't many on the Right boycott Nike, Gillette, Dick's, to name a few? Is it ok to boycott a business or not?

    Personally I think boycotting a business because you don't like its politics is silly. But hey...its a free country so if one wants to act like a petulant child they have that right.

    We are suggesting that the left has lost its collective mind and is going off the deep end

    So far you have tried harassment against trump appointees in public places and their homes

    violence against republican members of congress

    And threats of murder against children who mock AOC

    The left is drifting closer to a shooting war against conservatives

    A war your side will lose

    No. Didn't you boycott Chick fil A? Boycotting is a leftist tactic, started by Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton to extort money from businesses.

    Money is speech remember?

    How dare you try to infringe on their religious freedom of speech.

    Y’all keep creating these monsters and are so outraged when it’s used against you.

    Enjoy

    I think its great.. Boycotting Trump's businesses is non violent protest.. Vote with your pocketbook.

    I always walk out on preachers who preach the RaptureRedy Scoflield heresy. Its non violent an effective..

    You know this is your right as a US citizen.

    LOLOL.. Nobody tried to extort money from Chick Fil A. That 's one of those bullsh*t urban myths. I protest them because they invested in for prophet prisons .. so did Hobby Lobby which I also boycott.

    It's so hard to tell with posters like you. I imagined that you were unintentionally letting out the secret that the atheists were secretly imprisoning the oracles of god.....

    It's so much less fun when you insist on complaining about the mundane.... I suppose you'll be a vested diner at Popeye's these days... Good luck finding that chicken sammy though....

    Um...what part of my comment below did you not understand? So no, I didn’t boycott Chick.
    So your stance is no one on the Right boycotted Nike, Gillette or Dick’s??? So sales dropping at each company AFTER the Kaepernick controversy, the toxic masculinity controversy and Dick's stopping sales of "assault" weapons, respectively, was purely coincidental??? Sure thing.
