Remember when baseball was America’s pastime? As wholesome as Jesus Christ and apple pie.
Boy, have things changed. Pete Rose once said, “I’d walk through hell in a gasoline suit to play baseball”. Today’s leftist might suggest he just put on a dress instead.
You know, the funny thing about leftists is that they really lack the ability to learn from the mistakes of others. I think about this a lot- but if I were a businesswoman, I would pay a lot of attention to the things that make or break the businesses around me.
Right now, Bud Light is sending up SOS flares. You’d have to be a damn fool not to heed their warning. Enter the Los Angeles Dodgers. Apparently, they thought it was time to turn Dodger Stadium into the RuPaul Drag Show.
Did they learn nothing from Dylan Mulvaney?
“Her” partnership with Bud Light drove a stake through the heart of Anheuser Busch and its stock value.
According to the New York Post:
Steep drops in sales of Bud Light continued to worsen for the sixth consecutive week, plunging by nearly 25% since the ill-fated promotion with transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney, the latest industry data shows.
Sales of the US’s No. 1 beer were down 24.6% for the week ended May 13 compared to a year ago — slightly worse than the 23.6% dip they suffered a week earlier, according to Bump Williams Consulting and NielsenIQ research.
Even more alarming, industry experts say, is the negative impact on Anheuser-Busch InBev’s other brands, including Budweiser, Michelob Ultra — with the latter being the nation’s No. 3 beer last year with more than $3.3 billion in sales last year.
Michelob Ultra sales were off 2.9% versus a year ago in the latest week, in line with a drop a week earlier, according to a Bump Williams analysis of NielsenIQ data. Sales of Budweiser, last year’s No. 7 beer with more than $1.8 billion in sales, were down 9.7% in each of the two most recent weeks.
“Bud Light is ‘sick,’” Bump Williams, founder of the consultancy said of the US’s top-selling beer, which raked in $4.8 billion in sales last year. “It’s now infected other healthy brands with the InBev portfolio and that’s a bigger problem in my mind.”
The drama has already touched MLB, but apparently the Dodgers didn’t notice.
However, Red Sox fans made their point abundantly clear.
We recently chronicled the death of the Bud Light beer booth:
A video posted on TikTok by a user named Luis Tejada shows a packed line of fans waiting to buy refreshments in what appears to be the bleacher concourse section of Fenway Park while a nearby stand selling Bud Light beer cans is empty. The video has garnered over 1.2 million views and generated 8,909 comments as of Thursday afternoon.
“Fenway Park Bud Light stand Ghost Town!” Tejada wrote alongside the clip.

The clip was the latest display of outrage among conservative Bud Light customers who’ve boycotted the brand following Mulvaney’s partnership that generated hefty backlash, prompting internal shakeups and boycotts across the country.
Perhaps, for a moment, the Dodgers saw the writing on the wall. At one point, they disinvited the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence to the June 6th pride night. But, woke activists started to raise a little cane, and the Dodgers caved.
Unfortunately, these are no ordinary drag queens.
The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence is known for dressing in drag queen-inspired nun outfits to mock Catholics, including at pro-abortion rallies, according to Fox News. Dressed as nuns, the group attends parades to push the radical gay agenda.
Catholic League president Bill Donohue blasted the team for “promoting bigotry, not fighting it” with its obscene award for the anti-Catholic group.
“These homosexual bigots are known for simulating sodomy while dressed as nuns,” Donohue said. “They like to feature a ‘Condom Savior Mass,’ one that describes how the ‘Latex Host is the flesh for the life of the world.’”
Donohue also noted that the group also calls itself “Sister Homo Fellatio” and “Sister Joyous Reserectum” and pointed out that “only last month, the group held an event mocking the Virgin Mary and Jesus on Easter Sunday.”
The Dodgers should’ve seen their fate coming a mile away.
But, like a hard-headed teenager, they pressed on. Thus, it’s time to pay the piper.
Now that the Dodgers have reversed its decision to disinvite the hate group from its gay pride night after acquiescing to Christians who were outraged that the group was set to get a community award at the game, Christians are again mounting efforts to denounce the team for reinviting the LGBTQ group to the game.
CatholicVote is vowing to resume its campaign to pressure the Dodgers to distance itself from the hate group after the team went groveling back to reinvite them to their June 16 game.
“After the Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday reinvited an anti-Catholic hate group to be honored at the team’s June 16 LGBTQ+ Pride Night, CatholicVote President Brian Burch vowed to launch a “barrage” of advertising against the team across Los Angeles and in game broadcasts,” the group said in a Monday press release.
“This is a slap in the face of every Catholic,” Burch added. “We’re raising $1 million as fast as we can, and we will pummel this decision in advertising that the Dodgers can’t ignore.”
“Every advertiser, every season ticket holder, every charity, every fan must speak out against the Dodgers’ decision to promote anti-Catholic hate,” Burch said. “Why does ‘pride’ have to include honoring the most grotesque and scandalous anti-Catholic perverts?”
