Beating the Woke
Good news, America. Conservatives can fight and win.
When Bud Light teamed up with fake female Dylan Mulvaney to promote its beer, I knew there would be a boycott and that the boycott would work — maybe taking down the whole Budweiser brand with it.
The boycott worked as sales dropped 26% in one month. Businesses noticed.
Newsweek reported, “Transgender Influencer's Partnerships Drop After Dylan Mulvaney Controversy.”
Even SJW CEOs worry about revenue declines. Imagine that.
The Newsweek story said, “Transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney's partnership with Bud Light has catapulted company partnerships into the limelight, and Rose Montoya, a Latinx transgender influencer, thinks the negative attention on Bud Light could be a possible explanation as to why some brands are rethinking partnerships leading up to Pride month.
“Mulvaney became the subject of widespread criticism after Bud Light sent
her him a commemorative can with her his face on it to celebrate her his one-year anniversary of transitioning pretending to be a woman. Anheuser-Busch's stock dropped in the wake of the boycott and the company has seen a decline in Bud Light sales, forcing the company to part ways with several executives and walk back the significance of the Mulvaney partnership.”
It’s just one beer can, the media whines. If it is so unimportant, why did the left rally behind it? Conservatives won this round. They will win more because this boycott showed them how to win.
First, the reason for the boycott resonated. Americans are fed up with the LGBT Mafia in general for pushing people around. Americans are really fed up with guys like failed male swimmer William Thomas calling himself Lia and ruining a women’s sport.
NPR reported, “An NPR/Ipsos poll shows that nearly two-thirds of Americans (63%) are opposed to allowing transgender women and girls to compete on teams that align with their gender identity, while 24% overall support that.”
People know gender is not biological; it is grammatical. No amount of media propaganda will change that because the media has worn out its welcome. Spending one’s credibility on Never Trump was foolish. Ask Bill Kristol, the born-again liberal.
Second, Mister Mulvaney’s endorsement was part of a list of related grievances. The lies have caught up with trans-journalism, which is fiction pretending to be fact. Its pronouns are liar-liar and liar pants on fire.
Consider NPR’s headline in the story about the public being overwhelmingly opposed to men playing in women’s sports: “Americans are deeply divided on transgender rights, a poll shows.”
Americans are not deeply divided. We are in agreement. There was a 39-point gap between those who want women’s sports protected and those who want to sacrifice real women at the altar of political correctness.
When you lie like that, you eventually get trapped in your fabrications. The media saw Mister Mulvaney as a heroine in his pink dress. The public saw him as a fraud. He turned off 26% of Bud Light drinkers.
LGBT is an anti-American pressure group that bullies people. Its goal is to end the First Amendment protection of religion by demanding tolerance of behaviors many Christians believe are intolerable. The mainstreaming of sexual deviancy disgusts many people.
Trannies are bullies. Consider this weekend New York Post story, which began, “A Florida bakery refused to write the word trans on a cake requested by two social workers who had hoped to bring the treat to an event they had organized for the local transgender community.
“Dandelion Hill, co-founder of the Orlando-based non-profit Peer Support Space, was heading to the organization’s Trans Joy Event on April 26, and stopped at the Colonialtown Publix to pick up a cake for the celebration.
“Hill, who is trans and uses they/them pronouns, asked if the bakery could write a simple, wholesome message in pink icing on the sheet cake: ‘Trans people deserve joy.’”
No, bakers deserve joy. They make something. They are productive. All I see trannies do is destroy, which is why they chose this baker and not some trans-friendly one. They wish to destroy this business just like they want to destroy the Colorado master baker who refused to create a gay marriage cake.
Ed Driscoll summed it up best: “Florida, like Colorado, is a large state with apparently only one bakery.”
Third, the beer boycott worked because there are plenty of alternatives. Giving up Bud Light meant no sacrifice because beer is beer to Bud Light drinkers. Otherwise, they would be drinking something else.
Finally, the corporation’s plan to move away from frat boys — as its well-credentialed marketing expert said — insulted its customer base.
It took a month for management to recognize the problem. And its tepid attempt to walk it all back only served to insult a few homosexuals.
NBC said, “Beer drinkers visiting Chicago gay bars may have a difficult time finding popular brands like Bud Light, Stella Artois and Michelob Ultra. That’s because at least five LGBTQ venues in the city are boycotting the brewing company Anheuser-Busch and its products after the company distanced itself from transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney.”
Gee, five gay bars in Chicago quit. Sell my stock immediately. LGBT is just trying to horn in on a conservative accomplishment.
Making Bud Light America’s favorite beer did not happen overnight.
The Telegraph reported, “Robert Lachky, whose adverts in the 1990s helped Budweiser become America’s most popular beer, said two decades of work had been ruined over Bud Light’s Dylan Mulvaney fiasco.”
Bud Light was a Lachky kid.
He said, “It took us 20 years to take Bud Light beer to the No. 1 beer in the country, and it took them one week to dismantle it.”
Say what you will, but Mister Mulvaney is more powerful than all the employees and distributors of Anheuser-Busch. They built it up. He brought the house down like that it was in the tornado in The Wizard of Oz. Guess which beer company played the part of the Wicked Witch of the East in his production.
Miller Lite told its competitor, hold my beer.
The Daily Mail reported, “‘It’s time beer made it up to women’: Miller Lite APOLOGIZES for using women in bikinis to sell beer after campaigns featuring Sofia Vergara, Meghan Markle and Pamela Anderson: New ad echoes woke Dylan Mulvaney controversy.”
Well, there are only 99 bottles of other beers on the wall. One of them surely wants conservative customers.
The Bud Light boycott is important for the conservative cause. Savor the victory because the boycott is a rare win for a movement that is constantly under attack and on the defense.
Some wimps tried to stop the boycott. Donald Trump Jr.’s opposed the boycott because the brewer donated to Republicans. His objection showed that he is as out of touch as most people in DC.
Conservative Nick Lopez made the jobs argument.
He wrote, “Now don't get me wrong. I love to see the woke get beat at their own game. But the people who actually make, bottle, and distribute Bud Light likely aren’t woke. Seriously, America is putting Laverne, Shirley, Lenny, and Squiggy out of a job over someone who doesn’t even work at AB!”
The company already canned Laverne, Shirley, Lenny, and Squiggy. Look up ab inbev layoffs.
The Fox News boycott also worked for the same reasons. It was a legitimate response to taking its most conservative voice, Tucker Carlson, off the air.
The removal of Carlson was part of a list of grievances that includes calling Arizona too quickly on Election Night 2020. There are plenty of alternatives to Fox — online. Fox believes everyone in the universe watches cable TV. We don’t.
Finally, Fox is moving away from its customer base which it considers too Trumpy. Murdoch is so off his meds that I expect the Dylan Mulvaney Factor to debut in the fall.
The widow of Roger Ailes left a birthday greeting for her late husband on Monday.
She said, “It took you 20 years to build Fox News into the powerhouse that it was and only 6 years for the Murdochs to wreak havoc. Rupert thought he could do your job. What a joke. He has the checkbook but could never come close to your genius. RIP.”
Murdoch is a child — albeit it a knighted one — who broke his toy.
The Daily Beast reported, “On Monday, MSNBC beat Fox News in primetime in both total viewership and the key 25-54 advertising demographic. The Rachel Maddow Show, which now only airs on Mondays, defeated Hannity by over 500,000 viewers overall. The 8 p.m. hour, anchored by Will Cain, only pulled in 1.62 million viewers. (Carlson averaged a total audience of 3.25 million in the first quarter of this year.)”
MSNBC did not gain viewers from Fox. Fox lost them. Bigly. The loss was yuge.
Loyal customers come first. Fox forgot that.
CNN is about to learn that lesson with the left’s boycott of CNN — or should I say what’s left of CNN because it already was drawing flies in prime time. Anderson Cooper attracted just 707,000 viewers the night before the Trump Town Hall, which attracted 3.3 million viewers in the same timeslot. Cooper dropped to 616,000 the night afterward.
The Trump town hall was a one-night stand, not true love. Trump supporters tuned in CNN for his appearance only. They won’t be back. I doubt many lefties will be back either. As with Bud Light, there are plenty of alternatives as most news outlets are dominated by Ultra, Extreme, Antifa-Friendly, Left Wingnut news readers.
CNN’s outreach to Trump supporters who were pissed at Fox is hilarious. Conservatives have decades of grievances against CNN, a channel that admitted in 2003 that its Baghdad Bureau served as a PR service for Saddam Hussein for 12 years.
No, conservatives are not tuning in. Neither are libs.
Breitbart chortled, “Struggling CNN dropped into fourth place behind Newsmax for prime time viewership ratings last Friday night, the slump following a rare climb to the top driven by Donald Trump’s town hall appearance.”
I don’t know which loser is more pathetic, CNN or Fox. Pop poll.
Liberals are more experienced at boycotting but the threat of a boycott serves them better than actual boycotts. Companies fear liberal boycotts like a child fears the monster under the bed. One reason Bud Light management refused to cut ties with Mister Mulvaney immediately was the fear of an LGBT boycott.
The entertainment media also faces a backlash against its woke revisionism.
Forbes reported, “Netflix’s Queen Cleopatra Appears To Have The Worst Audience Score In TV History.”
It scored 1% on the audience score at Rotten Tomatoes. The docudrama depicted her as African, not Egyptian. Jada Pinkett Smith starred. Will Smith’s hand is going to be sore once he slaps all those people who voted against her.
The Forbes story said, “The low scores are no doubt overwhelmingly because of the casting choice and historical alterations, but the show at its core does not seem to be terribly good even outside of that. I have genuinely never seen a show review like this before, and I’ll be curious if Netflix will renew the series so it can spotlight other African queens who will no doubt be less controversial.”
Time and history are on the side of conservatism. Eight years ago, when Donald Trump announced for the presidency, the media decried him as racist for daring to say illegal aliens included thugs and murderers.
Now, black community leaders in Chicago oppose bringing illegal aliens to their neighborhood.
WLS reported, “Residents of South Shore are taking legal action against the city of Chicago over plans to turn a shuttered neighborhood high school into a migrant respite center.”
The Looney Tunes left took another hit this week when Brittney Griner, the only WNBA player anyone heard of, stood for the national anthem. It was her first game back since her little, um, vacation last year. Her protest for social justice ended when she got a 10-month taste of Russian justice, comrade.
Conservatives can fight and win on social issues. Bud Light proved that. Immigration too. It is the Ronald Reagan Plan. We win, they lose.
