a moral stance CAN win. The Bud Light crash-and-burn has shown that. Can.
I mean, who wants to be seen holding a Bud Light now? It has become an embarrassment–something beer-drinkers would avoid like the plague.
And it the revolt is NOT “astro-turfed.” It is an organic uprising among beer-drinkers. The culture has changed. The Mulvaney crap was not merely a “bad advertising move,” it was a culture-shifting earthquake.
It’s just one beer can, the media whines. If it is so unimportant, why did the left rally behind it? Conservatives won this round. They will win more because this boycott showed them how to win.
… When you lie like that, you eventually get trapped in your fabrications. The media saw Mister Mulvaney as a heroine in his pink dress. The public saw him as a fraud. He turned off 26% of Bud Light drinkers.
But Bud Light isn’t the only company to fall into the “woke” pit. FoxNews managed also managed to hose things up:
The removal of Carlson was part of a list of grievances that includes calling Arizona too quickly on Election Night 2020. There are plenty of alternatives to Fox — online. Fox believes everyone in the universe watches cable TV. We don’t.
The widow of Roger Ailes speaks to her imaginary (dead) husband:
“It took you 20 years to build Fox News into the powerhouse that it was and only 6 years for the Murdochs to wreak havoc. Rupert thought he could do your job. What a joke. He has the checkbook but could never come close to your genius. RIP.”
Oh, and can you say. “CNN?” I knew that you could!
AND, suddenly Black leaders in Chicago are protesting the Democrat illegal alien fiasco!
Understand well, Conservatives, you can fight and win. Democrats want you to be discouraged, to just sit around and impotently moan. Their message is, You can’t change anything, so don’t even try.
But don’t believe it for a second! Conservatism is a powerful force. Don’t give in to discouragement and withdrawal/surrender.
