The mental midgets at Sleeping Giants, an anonymous Twitter group, don’t like The Rebel, but instead of agreeing to disagree, they’re putting pressure on advertisers to pull ads from our website.
The ostensible reason for the attempted boycott is that Rebel is too “extremist”, code-speak for holding a right-of-centre viewpoint.
A handful of companies are indeed opting to shun us, as is their right, but I wonder if they’ve considered who exactly they’re hopping into bed with?
This boycott won’t hurt us but it might hurt the companies that are acquiescing to the likes of Antifa, who probably aren’t the people spending money on their products.
Watch as I explain what the Hudson’s Bay Company for one, had to say about “adjusting” their ad-buying to prevent their ads from appearing on Rebel Media.
I put my money where my mouth was that day, yet the Bay is willing to shun those who are defending the store’s right to sell whatever they choose, opting instead to listen to the squeaky wheels who probably aren’t customers!
Yeah... makes sense to me, too.
