Who is boycotting Breitbart News

A reader requested I consider listing the advertisers boycotting Breitbart News. Kellogg's tops the list.

From my reader:
I think you ought to list the companies that have caved to liberal whining and publicly agreed to remove their ads from Breitbart News, and encourage your readers to boycott those companies.  Breitbart was the only major news website that whole-heartedly supported Trump during the campaign; as I'm sure you noticed, Fox blew hot and cold.
I'll understand if you don't; I mean, it's your blog, not mine.  But I do think you ought to.
These are the companies that the other side claims have joined, so there's a chance they're being over-optimistic.  On the other hand, none of the ones I've contacted have denied it.
The list is here.

I am not into boycotts. But knowledge is power, is it not? Most of these companies are small and they seem boutique so their customer base is likely latte liberal.

Now if the breakfast biscuit place I go to (West Virginians know which one) were on the list, I would be pissed.

But thankfully it is not.

Have a little fun. Read "Trump the Press," in which I skewer media experts who wrongly predicted Trump would lose the Republican nomination. "Trump the Press" is available as a paperback, and on Kindle.

  1. We used to not be into boycotts either. We tried to respect everyone's right to have and voice their opinions. But then mature management died off, or was pushed out by the left, replaced by immature PR people who panicked over internet riots and started shutting down all those normal things we took for granted as recently as yesterday. So now, we shut them out. What small resources we have are saved for businesses and people who "share our values". I just today discovered I still had a NeverTrump blog linked in my sidebar, and removed the link. Not a big deal, but what permit even one click for traitors? Esp when there are patriots like Surber in that list. :-D

    So thank you for publishing the list of anti-liberty immature companies willing to sell us out for the price of a tweat-rage.

  2. First - the only way dumb beasts like big corporations learn is by pain, so swat them between the ears.

    Second - a lot of site advertisement is driven by what the viewer is likely to want. The advertiser renting that rectangle to the left may have a dozen potential ads to drop in that space and will drop the ad they predict (based on traffic history) will appeal to that one viewer.

    Third - boycotts. Places like Buzzfeed that hosted a hit piece intended to smear and destroy a couple with a home improvement show on HGTV should be destroyed. That place is just clickbait central and if it can be made a lesson of...I have no problem. Punch back, etc...

    Fourth - this is the second time I have heard 'Baby It's Cold Outside' run on the cable music channel within an hour. Awesome.

    2. Didn't you know that is now a song that promotes Date Rape? Listen to the song and tell me who might be doing the "rape" - him or her?
      As to the list notice several UK companies. I doubt that the majority, maybe even 90% of the companies listed would never have advertised on Breitbart anyway. Unfortunately I can't move from Vanguard.

    4. "the only way dumb beasts like big corporations learn is by pain, so swat them between the ears."

      Business thinks in dollars and cents. The reason for withdrawing support has IMO less to do with philosophy (although that is usually the stated intent) and more a business decision about not losing the business of those who subscribe to that philosophy. The only way to have an impact is to show them that "the other side" has a greater monetary impact on them than they think. Such was done with Chick-Fil-A and Goldberg's Bagels. So boycotts anre not unreasonable or unwarranted.

  4. I too think boycotts are stupid but I also agree that to do nothing is exactly like shouting "thank you sir may I have another" after getting smacked in the face. It's victimhood, and I reject that view.

    If I can boycott without affecting my own life very much, why not? The NFL thing is working like a champ, and I gain back hours of my life.

    1. Me too, JB. It's pretty amazing how many chores you can get done, large and small, when you're not sitting on your arse for 7 hours watching the No Fun League.

  5. "West Virginians know which one.." & Kentuckians, also, Don. They're building one in Ironton. Now I don't have to drive to their store up in Ashland. I'll be over to cross over the new bridge at Russell to get my Big Tator. Life is good!
