Which Gun-Control Freak Anti-NRA Company will cave first?
The much ballyhooed list of companies that cut ties with the NRA didn’t learn their lesson.
Understand, it’s not the NRA these gun-control freak companies want to punish. It was President Trump. But like with Starbucks, Target, and the NFL to name a few, these companies won’t get the expect and formerly normal result.
No, these companies will fold, sooner rather than later. Remember when Keurig pulled its advertising from Sean Hannity?
Keurig announced on Saturday that it had pulled advertising from Hannity after several Twitter users questioned the company’s support for the host, citing Hannity’s coverage of allegations against the Republican Alabama US Senate candidate, Roy Moore.
Only days later, the company backed down, and apologized to Hannity and its employees:
After #BoycottKeurig started trending on Twitter over the weekend, the coffee machine company’s CEO Bob Gamgort has expressed regret in an email to employees obtained by The Washington Post.
In the wake of a shooting by a deranged product of Leftism in Parkland, FL, the reaction of quite a few companies was to blame the NRA, a group that has absolutely nothing to do with the tragic incident.
Here’s the list of companies that have dropped NRA deals:
*Delta Air Lines: The company axed discounted rates for NRA members.
*United Airlines: United ended an offer of discounted flights for NRA members traveling to their annual meeting.
*Enterprise Holdings: The parent company of car rental brands Enterprise, Alamo and National is ending discount deals with the NRA within a few weeks.
*Hertz: Like Enterprise, car rental company Hertz is ending discounts to NRA members.
*Avis and Budget: The company that owns the Avis and Budget rental car firms also plans to end discounts for NRA members.
*Symantec: The cybersecurity company’s LifeLock identity theft protection service for businesses and its Norton anti-virus software had both offered discounts to NRA members. Those deals are off.
*TrueCar: The online car-buying service is ending its deal for NRA members, who previously saved an average of nearly $3,400 off the retail price of new and used vehicles.
*MetLife: The insurer had offered discounts to NRA members on auto and home policies before axing the deal.
*SimpliSafe: The home security company had offered a special promotion to NRA members, but that ended Friday.
*First National Bank of Omaha: The financial institution cut an NRA-branded Visa credit card.
*Lifelock: A division of Symantec.
I say to hell with all these companies. They live on the muscle-memory of the bygone Obama Era. But they will soon receive a wake-up call, and then read the new Trump Era memo.
As for who will crack first, and reinstate the NRA, I don’t know. But one will, and then the others will fall. Delta is certainly getting some more than a nudge.
As USA Today reports:
Conservatives in Georgia’s Senate have a message for Delta Air Lines: Renew your relationship with the National Rifle Association or you will pay the price.
The state House had approved a tax break that could provide a $40 million benefit to the airline, but members of the Senate vowed to fight the deal after Delta dropped its discounted fares Saturday for members of the NRA.
Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle, a Republican, vowed Monday to kill any tax break for Delta, which is headquartered in Atlanta, unless the airline revived its discount program.
“Corporations cannot attack conservatives and expect us not to fight back,” Cagle said.
This response from Conservatives is becoming the norm. And that’s great news for corporate America.
Soon they will no longer kowtow to Leftists. Moreover, corporate America will see just how powerful the Conservative dollar is in this country.
As I mentioned earlier, Starbucks bucked the system and lost. Here’s what TBS wrote at the time:
Proving that playing politics isn’t good business, the designer coffee giant concedes defeat.
Politically divisive leadership at the helm of Starbucks left conservatives out in the cold for years. And now Starbucks pays a heavy price.
Five straight quarters of decreased sales prove that the Conservative dollar matters. Starbucks’ CEO Howard Schulz’ repeated attacks on Conservatives hit the coffee giant where it hurts the most…in the pocketbook.
Starbucks knows why their sales have fallen, and it’s not a softening of the market. To admit that would mean to admit that Obama’s economy wasn’t working.
Although Obama is partly to blame, the bigger impact to Starbuck’s bottom line was abandonment by Conservatives. And Wall Street agrees.
Financial analysts blame Schultz’s Leftist activism.
Let’s hope that Conservatives maintain this approach to dealing with activist companies. With over half the country solidly in the corner of Conservatism, it’s only a matter of time before corporate America understands that things have changed.
Those who ignore us, will find that a not so smart move.
