Boycotts. So hip! So WOKE!! So Charmed! Yeah, NO. Yet that hasn’t stopped the latest stampede of political correctness and virtue signaling from the merry band of anti-gun, anti-NRA enthusiasts and their newest recruits from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
They’re still a thing? Meanwhile David needs a tutor.
So how else should we pressure @FedEx to end their relationship with the NRA? Same question for Amazon also I've been trying to cancel my prime membership along with everyone else that doesn't want to support @NRATV how should we go about that? @amazon
This will be easy for me. I haven’t sent anything by FedEx in at least half a year. No particular reason. Documentary urgency just isn’t a regular thing in my life, and, for packages, the United States Postal Service and UPS are more conveniently located.
Others who’ve announced their determination not to use FedEx will find it more problematic to switch to competing companies. So problematic, in fact, that it’s an excellent bet FedEx won’t notice a drop in business.
“Very few boycotts ever result in a significant change in consumer behavior,” said Brayden King, a professor at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management who has studied hundreds of such protest actions dating to 1990. Would-be boycotters either drift quickly back into their old spending habits or, like me with FedEx, were never big customers to begin with.
“When boycotts are effective, it’s because the announcement has grabbed the attention of the media and threatened the reputation of the company,” said King. “This makes investors and executives nervous. They don’t want the name of the company dragged through the mud.”
Statistics show that maybe 1 in 4 boycotts actually work long term, as in more than three days long-term.
One day boycotts do absolutely nothing to companies that measure profits by quarterly reports, especially if people go right back to using them the next day. This needs to have a LASTING impact to have ANY impact. https://t.co/0PMCpRPZ5K

First of all, buying now shows immediate gains. Secondly, companies that refuse to kowtow to an angry uninformed virtue signaling mob should be applauded.
The long term effects of companies caving to a few only serves to anger their buying public, Chick-Fil-A anyone? As Delta just found out, following the politically correct mob isn’t the best move.
However, a #BUYCOTT will see immediate gains for those companies who dare exercise free enterprise and refuse to discriminate against businesses and people because of an uniformed angry mob says anyone involved with with those EVIL GUNZ is at fault for the Parkland, Florida tragedy.
I will be hitting up @amazon pretty hard on Thursday. Even if I wasn't an @NRA member I would support these businesses. This scream until you get your way crap is getting old. No matter what side you're on. #BUYcotthttps://t.co/0qQkVFz8CU
