Apparently the current pretext for boycotting Florida is because the state put on “a sham of a case” in prosecuting Zimmerman. And I ask you, whose fault is that?
If your case is a sham, then the prosecution will put on a sham of a case.
This is exactly the same stupidity we have seen over and over from the left. Boycott oranges! Why? They grow in Florida! Boycott Coca-Cola! Why? Because they buy oranges! Boycott the Koch brothers–of course–because they “help fund piggermans defense.” Which is a complete fiction, but if you are a liberal, the facts are optional. Boycott Foot Locker! Huh? Foot Locker? “This company is owned by the same racist family that use to own woolworths.” I have no idea what that is all about. No doubt it is familiar to students of left-wing mythology, but Foot Locker isn’t owned by any family, it is a publicly traded, $5.6 billion a year company.
Looking on the bright side, I doubt that a single orange, can of Coke, pair of shoes or box of Dixie cups will be forgone because of today’s agitation. The salient point is that the people who sponsored the “Justice for Trayvon” rallies are the same tired leftists who have organized all the other protests in recent years, and who have nothing more substantive or creative to offer than “Don’t buy Brawny paper towels!” Trayvon Martin has, really, little to do with it. As always, leftists are trying to capitalize on others’ tragedies to advance their worn-out agenda.
Don’t forget Nestle. I keep seeing signs telling people not to buy Nestle because apparently the company blew up Africa. Since lefties claim to hate consumerism, boycotts are a natural tool, but since they’re already boycotting everyone, it’s hard for a universal boycott of everyone to have much of an impact.
Currently the left is boycotting Nestle, Caterpillar, BP, Bank of America, Florida, Arizona and every company on earth. Not to mention Israel.
That’s a lot of things not to buy.
