Protests done right!
By Mike Huckabee
Never forget, the left may hold the megaphone, but you hold the purse strings. After Bed Bath & Beyond announced that it would no longer carry MyPillow products following attacks on CEO Mike Lindell for expressing pro-Trump political beliefs and suspicions about the 2020 election, conservatives organized boycotts, a petition drive and protests at stores. Thursday, the company’s stock took its biggest one-day fall ever : 36.4%.
Some protesters at a BB&B store in Larspur, California, left a message for CEO Mark Tritton that should be required reading for all CEOs thinking of betraying 75 million Trump voters to cater to a handful of leftist Twitter trolls whom I can't imagine care about buying clean sheets:
“Stop promoting 'cancel.’ You buckled to pressure, removing MyPillow products...because of Mike Lindell's politics. It's un-American...Our country was founded on the principle of free speech and open debate. These days, censorship and suppression are far too common, and you’re now part of the problem. You have that right, of course, but realize you’re antagonizing half of your customers. And Mark…we’ve had enough. We’re tired of corporate big-shots looking down on our beliefs. Reverse this decision now and get out of politics, or we’re done with you forever."
And then, do you know what they did? Did they scream threats, loot the store, set the building on fire? No. They left peacefully after leaving the checkers a $20 tip, because they hated to have to inconvenience them just because their boss is a bad businessman who drives away customers.
See, now THAT is how real Trump supporters hold a protest rally.
