So Publix folded like a cheap suit. It seems that David Hogg and his Band of Brats intimidated the grocery chain with threats of a “die-in” at their stores. Publix, you see, contributed to the candidacy of Republican Adam Putnam. Now Putnam is running for Florida governor, and he supports the eevvilll NRA. And that just doesn’t wash with Hogg.

As a result, the quaking Publix chain suspended any further political contributions of any sort. Spokesman Dwaine Stevens said this:

“We would never knowingly disappoint our customers or the communities we serve. As a result, we decided earlier this week to suspend corporate-funded political contributions as we reevaluate our giving processes.”

This, mind you, was prior to the planned die-in protests. So did Hogg act like the gracious victor? Was he General Grant to Robert E. Lee at Appomattox?

Ah, hell no. With him it’s no quarter. In fact, not only did he and his Band of Brats go ahead with their protest anyway, Hogg demanded $1 million from Publix for the Stoneman Douglas Victims Fund. And then he warned Publix to watch whom they support with their dollars.

Hot damn, if that doesn’t sound like an Al Capone-style protection racket: “Nice grocery store ya got here. Be a shame if somethin’ was to happen to it.”

Ah, but check out what went down at the Parkland Publix protest. Hogg was on hand, armed with a bullhorn and his Band of Brats, annoying the hell out of shoppers, who (snort!) largely ignored them.

And guess who else showed up? Yes, friends, NRA and Trump supporters. In other words, adults who vote:

Furthermore, Hogg’s stunt may have also cost money to liberal causes near and dear to his little leftist heart. Not only does Publix give donations to homeless shelters, but they also make political donations to the YWCA. And what does the YWCA support? Why they support gay marriage and . . . wait for it. . . they’re also a member of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence. Not only that, but Publix also gave money to Susan G. Komen and the United Way, which both support Planned Parenthood.

Way to go, Hogg, you numb nuts!

Now I’m a Baby Boomer. Younger generations like to point fingers at us and blame us for all the woes in the world, and accuse us of being pampered. Sadly, many of us were, mainly because our parents were Depression Era kids who then went off to fight World War II. They wanted us to have an easier life than they did, and I can’t blame them for that.

But never in a million years would my parents have allowed me, as a teenager, to lie down on the dirty floor of a grocery store in a self-righteous protest. Where in the hell are the parents of these children? Unless, of course, they’re just as leftist as their offspring, and oh-so-proud of their little social justice warriors. Furthermore, why does anyone give credence to kids who are so self-centered that they have to send pictures of their “dead” selves on a grocery store floor all over social media?

But go ahead, you guys. This is America, damn it, and most adults don’t like the idea of whiny brats trying to take rights away from those of us who obey the law. And we’re getting fed up with their shenanigans, too. But we’ll make the best of it, as adults do, and we’ll smile, and keep reminding ourselves that this is how you get more Trump.

    Memo to Publix Management:

    Get woke, go broke.

    See, Target & Dick’s Sporting Goods.

    Those you are trying to appease don’t shop at your stores, so you won’t lose their business. But, many of your regular customers will be offended and will take their business elsewhere. Meanwhile, your CEO’s campaign symbol just became a folding chair.

  • Scott says:

    Be a crying shame if someone were to accidentally drop a big glass jar or mayo, or mustard, or maybe even fish sauce, you know, because the “dead” kids were in the way, and for it to explode when it hit the floor, splattering the little thugs…. not that i’m advocating such things, but accidents do happen, especially when you’re trying to work around obstructions… just saying..

    • Babara says:

      That’s right, Scott. Those pesky bottles of fish sauce can sure be slippery, especially if you’re trying to maneuver a “brat-stical” course.

  • Diane Harney says:

    Demeaning the efforts of the children who are actually calling attention to the slaughter of children is appalling. As of today, 252 children have been wounded and 1049 killed. And you and your fans find this funny. Why don’t you focus on how this happens and what can be done rather than trying to sound ironic and smart. Your post shows you are neither.

    • Kim Hirsch says:

      Cry me a river.

    • GWB says:

      She *did* focus on why this happens:
      Where in the hell are the parents of these children? Unless, of course, they’re just as leftist as their offspring, and oh-so-proud of their little social justice warriors.

      Oh, wait, you were talking about the school shootings. Well, 1) that isn’t what this post is about, 2) they have addressed the shootings on other posts, and 3) she still addressed that (at least partly) in this post with the very quote above.
      Oh, and ‘Camera’ Hogg isn’t focusing on why the school shootings are happening, either. He’s simply playing his leftist victimology card to take away free citizens’ rights.

      And I don’t find this funny, at all, actually. I find it pathetic. But we laugh because crying at the terminal illness of society that is progressivism is too damn depressing. Sort of like making jokes about your missing hair when going through chemotherapy.

      But, your comment demonstrates that you have neither smarts nor a sense of humor – you must be a progressive.

      (BTW, nice big numbers you toss out there – with no frame of reference, whatsoever. *smdh* Smart folks don’t get in a tizzy about numbers just because they’re BIG.)

    • Scott says:

      Diane, maybe do a little research, we do focus on how this happens, and what can be done. The problem is, idiots like you are conferring virtual sainthood on these little school bullies (yes, they admitted they bullied the Parkland shooter, but of course, said we shouldn’t judge them for it), even though all they’re advocating is taking away the rights of law abiding citizens, not anything that would actually fix the problem (in all reality, their “fixes” would make it worse). We don’t think any of that is funny, we think it’s sad.. Why don’t you read posts about Kyle Kashuv, you’ll see that there is an intelligent young man, who survived the same shooting, yet actually advocates for changes that would improve school safety, without infringing on the rights of law abiding citizens. You’ll see that all here wholeheartedly support him and his efforts. and since you’d spouting off numbers with no background, please provide sources to back up those numbers, otherwise, they’re just so much verbal diarrhea…

    Well, mine might have. They would have just stood there, looking at me like I had lost my mind. My mother might have pointed and laughed. Then they would have let me walk home.

    I probably would have stepped on several. Not accidentally, but simply because they were where my foot was going down. If I were the local Publix manager, I would have blocked them from entering (they publicly announced they would be trespassing), then have them arrested when they tried to enter. (I’d have broken ‘Camera’ Hogg’s bullhorn, too, for being a public nuisance.)

    BTW, did you get married, Kim?

  • Doug Purdie says:

    It would be satisfying to smack these kids upside the head, but it would also be wrong. They are, after all, just kids. I was stupid too when I was 18. OK, not as stupid as David Hogg, but stupid enough to get a smack upside the head.

    Some day soon (I hope), when they leave Mommy and Daddy’s nest, the reality of having to support their own selves will deliver that over-due smack, like it did me.
