Trump’s support for LL Bean proves “the bullies are going to be bullied back now”

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

LL Bean is a 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 one thing you can say about Donald Trump: He's loyal.

He tweeted to his millions of followers that they should shop at LL Bean to counteract this stupid boycott. Do you doubt that it worked?

John, I live in progressive green party Victoria, so that may give you an indication of the mindset here. On Facebook, I have a friend, who is socially conservative, but can’t think of one good thing to say about Trump. They even said they hope he gets impeached and Pence takes over. I suggested Trump would de-fund Planned Parenthood, but they just think he is lying and won’t follow through.

The good thing is, sometimes sadly, it is very difficult to make boycotts work.

All progressives have left is bullying. They believe that those who do not agree with them are stupid, and/or crazy, and/or evil. They are unwilling to even consider having an honest, calm and thoughtful debate on any issue. Inclusion, diversity, tolerance, are buzzwords which disguise their contempt for those who do not agree with them.
I patronize businesses that are the object of progressive bullying. It is one very small way to fight back against the progressive view which is: not necessarily tyranny, but tyranny if necessary.

Bought a winter coat last night from LL Bean. There is a 25% off purchases over $100.00. They do get a chunk back with taxes and exchange rate. Looks like they have some good stuff to buy.

Trump knows how to deflate bullies. We can all take a lesson.

The John Lewis comment regarding Trump’s illegitimacy as president is more in line with the thinking of Robert Mugabe. In Zimbabwe the only legitimate president is Mugabe, all others are illegitimate. According to Lewis, the only legitimate party is the Democrats because he no longer believes in the legitimacy of an overwhelming election victory by the Republicans. It seems that Democrats sharing Lewis’s view are no longer democrats. They have forgotten the meaning of the word upon which their party name is based.

Alas…..there is no one in Canada that will bully back our wannabe dictrator Trudope! Canadian, at least 38 odd percent really are that stupid!

Not so Shebel Raj… I had the pleasure of personally shopping four times at their Freeport, Maine Outlet store, just down the street from the main store, when living in Nova Scotia… Discounts of up to 70 per cent off, and I still have four of their heavy shirts, a pair of hunting boots, and a pair of hiking shoes… Brings back fond memories…

Trump would be encouraging people to go to Macy’s, had Macy’s not dropped the Trump clothing line. Macy’s could use a real boost right around now.

I still buy their gear.. one of my favorites is their union suits.
Bass Pro has some nice gear too but they’re all pricey it’s the quality I look for..

I used to buy their fly fishing gear , until the yuppies discovered it and prices went nuts – pretty funny all these concrete cowboys wanting to dress like they live in the north woods.

For someone who is not a ‘legitimate president’ he’s doing alright.

I wish the Americans had not voted for Trump, but I am going to make a point of searching LL Bean for some t-shirts now, I cannot stand that kind of bullying. As a downtown Toronto resident, I never tell people that I vote Conservative because it simply ruins whatever social situation I am in. Tired of it!!!!

I have shopped at L.L. Bean for years and it is the go to place for all your needs.

Have never bought LL bean but I will now.
commented 2017-01-14 18:47:40 -0500
I need a new pair of work shoes and I’ll get them from LL bean. My God the liberals are dumb!

It is going to be interesting—- For SURE.

It’s about time for the bullies to get what’s coming to them especially in the USA where they have been living under the socialist/communist oppression of Barrack INSANE Obama for the last 8 years.
