David Hogg Tries To Publicly Extort $1,000,000 From Supermarket Chain, Their Response Is Perfect

Published

on

Anti-gun rights activists have not gone away even though we do not see them in the news as much. Specifically, the Marjory Stoneman Douglas students who launched the March for our Lives campaign. David Hogg, in particular, has taken a turn to social media and is targeting any and all companies, corporations, politicians, and individuals who do not wholeheartedly agree with him. Now it looks like one Florida politician in particular and a grocery store chain are at the epicenter of his rage.

The Conservative Tribune reported:

“Shakedown in aisle 3.” Before teenage anti-gun celebrity David Hogg targeted the Florida-based Publix supermarket chain for made-for-TV “die-ins” last week, he demanded a huge payoff for a fund for victims of February’s mass shooting in Parkland, Florida. On Tuesday, the father of a girl who died in that shooting went public with the Publix response, and liberals could not have been happy.

Publix was on the receiving end of Hogg’s latest stab at fascist activism thanks to the company’s previous financial support for Adam Putnam, Florida’s agriculture commissioner and a candidate for the GOP nomination for governor who is proud of the support he gets from the National Rifle Association. In a Twitter post published a week before Friday’s demonstrations, Hogg demanded a payment of $1 million from the supermarket chain to make up for its support of Putnam — and tried to extort a humiliating promise from Publix to make its politics conform to a teenage liberal’s demands.

As atrocious as Hogg’s behavior is here, it’s not entirely unexpected. Hogg himself isn’t exactly famous for his honesty, and liberals have a long, ugly history of leveraging “progressive” causes into corporate shakedowns. (Jesse Jackson was so well known for it that a conservative author and activist wrote a book about the Chicago huckster called “Shakedown: Exposing the Real Jesse Jackson”.) But Publix — to its credit — wasn’t coming across with the cash. While the supermarket chain tried to wiggle its way out of the protests by announcing it would stop all political donations, turning over what would amount to a $1 million extortion payment wasn’t going to be in the cards. (It’s not like the fund needs money anyway. According to Orlando Weekly, it’s already collected some $8.7 million.)

This week, Fred Guttenberg, a Hogg ally and the father of 14-year-old Parkland victim Jaime Guttenberg, published a series of Twitter posts recounting how Publix CEO Ted Jones had informed him on Tuesday that the company wasn’t going to be victimized by a shakedown scheme. Jones cited Friday’s “die-ins” at two Florida locations as the reason, according to Gutttenberg. That would make sense to anyone who knows that an extortionist who finds a victim willing to pay will only keep demanding more, but Guttenberg proclaimed that he was shocked.

“He had the gall to say to me that because the die in made this so political that he would not be able to come down here to meet with the Parkland kids and families, as a reminder we are customers, and that Publix would not be making any donation to the victims fund,” Guttenberg wrote. Now, it’s important to remember that Guttenberg lost a daughter in the Parkland shooting, and grief can do strange things to a man’s decision-making process, so maybe he shouldn’t be held completely accountable for what this sounds like to normal people. But this Twitter user summed it up perfectly:

It’s unfortunate that Publix — the largest, most popular supermarket chain in Florida — was cowed into stopping its financial support for Putnam — a potential governor who grew up in the same county where Publix is based. But it’s heartening to see a corporation with the stones to tell an opportunistic extortionist like Hogg and his allies that the jig is up. This was one liberal shakedown that wasn’t going to pay off.”

Hogg is known for his aggressive and outspoken activism. Going on live television and cursing, speaking at rallies, hosting school walkouts and sit-ins. Those are just a few of the things he has done. But his increasingly hostile tactics are drawing a comparison by spectators to that of African American activist Al Sharpton.

USA Today reported:

“Well-known teen gun control activist David Hogg posted social media statements Wednesday that suggested he plans a Memphis protest against FedEx.”See you this summer,” he wrote to his 813,000 Twitter followers, adding a smiley face. “1000 Ridgeway Loop Memphis, Tennessee.” “That’s FedEx,” he wrote in a subsequent post. (FedEx is listed as one of the tenants in this East Memphis office building, but the main FedEx headquarters is at 3680 Hacks Cross Road.)

People immediately began asking for more details, but Hogg didn’t add much, writing, “More info to come.” FedEx released a statement late Wednesday that didn’t mention Hogg and repeated several points the company had made earlier this year during a dispute over its discount program for NRA members. “The pricing program mentioned in some reports is not for the NRA itself – it is for American small businesses and consumers that are members of the association,” the company said.

The company also repeated earlier statements distancing itself from the NRA’s positions: “FedEx opposes assault rifles being in the hands of civilians . . . Most important, FedEx believes urgent action is required at the local, state and Federal level to protect schools and students from incidents such as the horrific tragedy in Florida on February 14th.” Hogg is among a group of teenagers that emerged as some of the most recognizable faces of a revitalized gun control movement this year following a February mass shooting at their high school in Parkland, Florida.

Hogg and supporters recently held protests at Publix supermarkets to bring pressure against the company’s support for Adam Putnam, an NRA-friendly candidate for Florida governor. In the protests, young people lay on the supermarket floors in “die-ins” as managers routed shoppers around them. The protests led the company to announce Friday that it was suspending its political donations.

On MSNBC’s “AM Joy” in February, Hogg pressed for FedEx to end its NRA discounts and said, “The CEO is one of the biggest donors to the NRA, and we have to take care of them.” The company said CEO Fred Smith isn’t an NRA backer. “He has never been a member of the NRA, nor has he ever contributed to the NRA … and his political contributions are a matter of public record,” spokesman Patrick Fitzgerald said in February. During a protest on the University of Memphis campus earlier this year, students stopped in front of the FedEx Institute of Technology building on campus and chanted, “Hey FedEx, whaddaya say? Divest from the NRA!”

It appears that Hogg is not just targeting Publix but anyone who disagrees with him. Because FedEx is one of those companies he is now targeting. Soon enough he will run out of companies. If you took the moral high ground and refused to buy chocolate from companies that use illegal child labor you literally would not be able to buy chocolate because no company is immune. The same goes for any other company, all companies have a certain. nefarious aspect to it. That’s the real world, a lot of places do things we don’t like and we have to patronize their business anyways because of the monopoly they have on the market. It is time Hogg comes to understand that.

White House Guests KNEEL During National Anthem, Trump Makes Them Immediately Regret It

Published

* By

The Marine Corp band in their bright red uniforms were on the south balcony of the White House on a bright, sunny Tuesday in Washington, DC. The Army Chorus sang, beginning the event with ‘America the Beautiful’ and concluded with ‘God Bless America’. At least two people who were guests at President Trump’s Celebration of America event yesterday knelt, showing exactly why so many Americans are ticked over the National Anthem controversy.

The event replaced a celebration at the White House in honor of the Super Bowl win for the Philadelphia Eagles. These two disrespectful idiots took a knee as the “Star Spangled Banner” rang out across the South Lawn of the White House. Simply disgraceful. These aren’t social justice warriors… these are unpatriotic jerks.

A video was posted to Twitter by a reporter for SVT, the Swedish national public TV broadcaster. It shows a man, wearing a light blue button down, kneeling as the National Anthem played, before clapping and ultimately coming to his feet after the song finished. I guess he thought that was his five minutes of fame or something.

What it really amounted to was making a fool out of himself internationally. President Trump showcases all of these liberal dimwits for what they are… America-hating, radical leftists who are far more interested in hating our brave police officers and our country than they are in respecting America and taking national pride in their country and President.

When President Trump took the podium, he blew his audience away with his love for our country, military, police, flag and the National Anthem. He made every single person who disrespects them like this look like the small, craven liberals that they really are. The man, who did not identify himself, left the event immediately after the United States Marine Band performed the anthem, according to a news anchor for TV2 Denmark. Gee, crawling away with his tail between his legs like the lowly cur he his. Guess he couldn’t stand patriotism after he showed how much he hates his own country.

There was a second man who was pictured kneeling as well. That was posted to Twitter by a CNN White House producer. He was wearing a light blue checkered shirt and had a little American flag. This guy was right up front. He was also apparently the same person who reportedly heckled Trump. That guy was roundly booed by everyone around him. CNN’s analyst April Ryan posted false news on Twitter yesterday claiming people were booing Trump when it was the heckler they went after. She eventually retracted what she said after her own colleagues called her out on the lie. “Stop hiding behind the armed services and the National Anthem,” the guy yelled to a chorus of boos, according to the Daily Mail. “Let’s hear it for the Eagles.” “Go home,” one person shouted at the heckler.

The President didn’t engage the heckler, but looked in his direction and pursed his lips. He looked like he wanted to smack him. Right there with ya.

President Trump disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House after they at first said they had more than 70 players coming to the People’s House to celebrate. By this week, that number had dropped to less than ten and then to only one player. They kept trying to change the date to one where President Trump would be out of the country. I don’t blame the President in the least for canceling the visit. That was totally appropriate. If you insist on being ungrateful and insulting a sitting President of the United States, then you don’t deserve the honor of going to the White House period.

Trump claimed on Monday that the team disagreed “with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country.” Eagles players denied that accusation, pointing out that no one on the team knelt for the anthem during last season. But that has nothing to do with how each individual on the team states his beliefs and shows his disrespect for President Trump.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders accused the team of a “political stunt” just minutes before Tuesday’s alternative event began, claiming the players had chosen to “abandon their fans.” That’s exactly what they did. “If this wasn’t a political stunt by the Eagles franchise then they wouldn’t have committed to attend the event and then backed out,” she said in her Tuesday press briefing. “And if it wasn’t a political stunt, they wouldn’t have attempted to reschedule the visit while the President was overseas.”

Trump was brief in his remarks and only spoke for about four minutes. He began by explaining why it’s an issue of patriotism for Americans to stand for the National Anthem. “We love our flag and stand for our National Anthem,” Trump said to great applause from the crowd on the South Lawn of the White House. “We stand to honor our military and to honor country and to honor the fallen heroes who never made it back home.” Yes, we do… and those that don’t can take a hike.

Melania Unveils This Year’s White House Christmas Decorations That Libs Are SURE To Hate

Published

...

* By

Melania Trump’s first year in office was marked by immense criticism of our incredible first lady, who in the eyes of the Trump family’s numerous detractors, Melania could do nothing right, or at least as well as her predecessor, Michelle Obama. This included her full Christmas decor plan, which was stunning in silver and white, and a beautiful modern take on the same tired style that Michelle un-creatively came up with.

This year’s decorations will likely be no different, if not worse.

Last year, liberals claimed she decked the halls in depression and gloom, likening it to looking more like a haunted house than a holiday home. So, what will they say about this year’s new look?

Chicks On The Right reports:

FLOTUS doesn’t just slay on the fashion front. Her decorating skills are off the charts. (Yes, yes– I know she didn’t do this by herself, but if you really believe she didn’t have a say, you’re nuuuuuuuuuuuuts.)

ANYWHO. She finally unveiled this year’s White House Christmas decorations, and they’re GORGEOUS.

You have no idea how much I want to stroll through those halls of beautifully decorated trees. Oh well. I’ll have to settle for the aisles of Hobby Lobby.

It all looks great. I’m obsessed. TY, that is all.
