Trump punches back against the boycott bullies

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Remember Brendan Eich? He was CEO of Mozilla until leftists revealed that he donated to a campaign against gay marriage. And Chick Fil-A, the great chicken sandwich company, founded by a Christian family? The left boycotted it (even though they never ate there to begin with…)

The left doesn’t realize it’s one of the reasons Trump won:

Americans were sick of this scolding, shaming and name-calling.

Look what happened yesterday. Trump tweeted to his 20 million followers:

Thank you to Linda Bean of L.L.Bean for your great support and courage. People will support you even more now. Buy L.L.Bean.”

LL Bean is another family owned company, from New England. Linda Bean donated to a Republican Super-PAC, so left wing website GrabYourWallet.org puts LL Bean on their boycott list.

Now, unlike other targets of the left like Nascar or Chick Fil A, that donation could be a risk, because liberals actually shop at LL Bean.

But I bet a lot more people saw Trump's tweet said: I’m going to shop there.

And I bet more people made that decision than the opposite.

It’s going to be a nice change to have someone on our side punching back against the bullies for once, don’t you think?

NEXT: Former Harper cabinet minister Joe Oliver comes on with a timely warning:

Canada has to leave behind its smug, “feel-good” “green” energy delusions and get in line with Trump’s ambitious plans for resource development.

THEN: Our own Gavin McInnes pops by to talk about all things Trump (including his latest funny video.)

FINALLY: I read your messages to me!

I thought liberals hated McCarthyism. That is what this is. Are they going to boycott every business or person that wrote a check to Trump. If I did that against liberals I could never eat ketchup anymore, would never by a Ford vehicle, ec…

Even I see the difference between a political operative and just a private citizen giving to the party they feels will do right by them.

There is finally something that awakens the Liberals during a conversation." Seven Holidays in one year" makes them think of past Liberal Politicians and their supposed entitlements. Remember David Dingwell when he was caught charging his gum on his expenses.
I’m hoping someone smart in Ottawa like Brian Lilly will keep the tally on JT holidays. It would be quite stunning if it reached 30 holidays in 4 years.

A friend of mine that has a fairly Big business in a fairly small town—-
Will NOT— pick any side. Just because of his business.
He does not need the harassment.
But— he will soon run.

A few things: Ezra, in Canada we say “zed” not “zee”. It’s one of those cultural things that separates us from Americans.
The Obama administration was a perfect example of how hiring individuals based on their colour and gender failed. Donald has appointed people who’ve actually accomplished something in their lives as opposed to “over-educated know-nothings.”
Finally, once all the provinces have become" have-not provinces", where is the money for equalization payments going to come from? We’re living in a totally “Made In Canada” recession right now and the future does not look bright. A recession created by enviro-frauds and enviro-psychos. Sure, we may end up with “Mr. Wonderful” four years from now but the damage will have been done. Markets for our resources/products will have passed us by and I don’t see those doors opening up to us unless we discount heavily. I never thought in my 57 years that I’d see governments aggressively and intentionally destroy our country. I’m having real problems with being a “Canadian” at the moment because it appears as though our PM is telling everyone in the whole world that they’re Canadian too even if you haven’t gotten here yet. But I do know one thing; I stand as a Christian like I have never before. Muslims are Muslim first, last and always no matter where they live. If everyone is a “Canadian” then the only thing that differentiates me from everyone else is my Christianity. Islam has been trying to conquer the Western world without stopping for 1400 years (yes, there have been some quieter periods) and each time it has been defeated. But when Western nations actively participate in their suicide we’ve got bigger problems. Is Donald Trump the next Charles Martel? Is that boorish, foul-mouthed, stupid billionaire (yeah, I know LOTS of “stupid billionaires”) going to be the one person that actually saves the West?

It’s a sad situation folks. I’m sure a lot of great people who died for our country in a variety of world wars are rolling in their graves asking the question: “I gave up my life, my freedom, my future so that Canada could become this?”

If you had a thumbs up it would go to Jim Norwood.

Hi Bill Elder,
That is the catch, the Conservatives need a principled conservative leader, not a patsy like Brown in Ontario.

I am proud to say that I use Mozilla fire fox.

Our mentally challenged PM made a comment today that infuriates we Western Canadian separatists. He stated to one questioner at a staged “love me” stop “that you cannot shut down the tarsands overnight”. It really annoys us to think that this simpleton Quebecer is making economic decisions that will so negatively affect the West.

It’s hard to accept that an MP who had the worst attendance record in history could become the prime minister with absolutely no credentials. I hope we can reach out to Trump as people to spare us

Trump, Brexit and Nigal Farage of Brexit fame, are the only glimmer of light in the western worlds future, at this time.

As for Canada, Trump will Tromp Trudeau into the Trough, in a matter of weeks. Farage’s Brexit will cause the breakup of the EU, France, Holland, Germany and possibly Italy, will be quick to follow the UK. This will ruin the UN and it’s Saudi Bosses.

There is a light at the end of the tunnel and it is not shining out of Trudeau’s Arse, as he would have us believe.

The Maritimes, and Quebec are sitting on vast resources that can be accessed though fracking. If they choose not to develop their resources, then they should also choose to give up equalization payments!
It is like a highly qualified person, choosing to stay on unemployment, when thousands of jobs are available, in their profession.

- Trump seemed to come along at just the right time in history. We’ve started to see pushback against the EU. People are sick of social justice wienies, political correctness & globalist elites. Then along comes Donald Trump who calls it like he sees it & doesn’t give a damn what the “special” people think about it. He’s done more for America since becoming president-elect than Obama has done in 8 years as president.

- Trudeau is out of his league when it comes to dealing with Trump. Trump slew the dragon Hillary, what chance does the boy idiot have. Canada is going to undergo some pain for electing the globalist Liberals. Lets hope it’s short lived.

Too bad Joe Oliver isn’t running for the leadership of the Conservative Party of Canada. However, why not leader of the Ontario PCs?

Robert Mcclelland – My gut tells me you’re right. Everything is shaping up for a perfect storm for the boy blunder.

The economy will reach a stagnancy or even a crisis from his taxing and stilling wealth engines, causing price inflation and making us energy poor, this at a time of poor employment with a lot of “McJobs” that just barely pay the bills – Canadians are getting poorer and when the bill comes due for his profligate spending which produced no jobs, the knives will be out.

I live in a predominant liberal riding and I have been straw polling friends, colleagues and acquaintances since the middle of the fall and they are disillusioned with him – the prevailing attitude being, they gave him a shot and he fell on his face – number once complaint is the cost of energy and shrinking disposable income.

Like we saw down south before the implosion of the Dem party, MSM polling reflects none of the attitudes on the street – just like the stage managed “consultations” we are seeing on the love I’m a Librano tour.

I think he will either lead a minority government or lose outright in the next election – - IF the conservatives can field a leader who taps into the economic angst out there.

Ezra’s right again. It will be nice just for once to have someone on the average citizen’s side for once. What a refreshing change!

Junior was chastised today in two Ontario townhalls. In Peterborough the two telling issues were the hydro energy poverty suffered by a single Ontario mom and her concern over the carbon tax. The “Love Me Do” tour is turning into a disaster for the dear boy. If Junior had any sense he would take the path outlined by Joe 0liver. I don’t think he will do this. As a result I think Trudeau could very well be a one term wonder.

I’m posting this to emphasize that this is how it works for the Anglo-Americans. Manipulate markets ? No problem. Pay a fine. Clinton’s travel down to the Carribbean on the Lolita Express. No problem. Clinton’s steal billions and wash it thru the Clinto Foundation. No problem. You have a penchant for small children…welcome to the Club can I get you a drink ?

Blow the whistle on this garbage. You get a free pass….to jail. No problem.

Heads I win. Tails I win.

And you wonder why Putin refers to Western Politicians as " mutants " ? It’s because they are !
