In the wake of every single mass shooting in America, liberals trot out their war on the Second Amendment by focusing on the National Rifle Association (NRA), berating millions upon millions of law-abiding gun owners for the act of one individual, that isn't even a member of the NRA, because said individual decided to go on a killing rampage.
I know, it doesn't make sense, but neither does blaming an inanimate object rather than casting the blame where it belongs, the person behind the weapon.
HUGE DIFFERENCE: LIBERALS THREATEN TO BOYCOTT - CONSERVATIVES JUST DO IT
One of liberals favorite things to do in their predictable war on the NRA, is to go onto social media and start organizing a boycott against any company that advertises, or provides discounts to NRA members, and just as predictably, after liberal attack dogs threaten those companies by saying they will stop using their services if they continue their association with the NRA, many who most likely never use the targeted companies services to begin with, those companies cave in and break off association with the NRA.
The next thing that inevitably happens is the news spreads, liberals proudly tout their success, listing the names of those companies that caved to to their threats, then the final act in this predictably play is when conservatives, by the millions, actually stop using their services.
See the difference there? Liberals threaten to stop using the services IF the companies don't comply with their threats, but those that believe in the constitution, gun owners, Second Amendment supporters, and NRA members all actually boycott their services. Not an organized boycott, just a grassroots middle finger to those companies. No threats, just message after message informing the company their services are no longer required and will not be considered for future use.
ThinkProgress editor Judd Legum started organizing the threat to boycott the NRA, spreading a graphic showing all the companies "in business" with the NRA, stating "A handy list of the companies that are still in business with the NRA," with a link to their article providing the names and descriptions with links to the companies, updating their graphic along the way with red lines through the names of the companies that caved to their threats.
This may be the first time in history that ANP actually says thank you to Think Progress and Mr. Legum, for providing millions of Second Amendment supporters, gun owners across America, conservatives, and every person, whether they are a NRA member or gun owner or not, that believes in the constitution, a list of companies to stop using in the future or to stay away from if the need for said services comes up.
Let me provide two clear examples of why I say liberals harass companies with a "threat" while conservatives just stop using the services of those that cave to those threats, or take political stances that alienates more than half the country to appease the other half, instead of just refusing to allow their company to be used as political tools.
Via Twitchy we see the types of messages were sent to the Enterprise car rental company via social media, with user Go Harvard which stated "@Hertz @Budget @Avis @Enterprise @Avis Guess I'm boycotting your companies until you stop giving discounts to the NRA. More $$$ in their pockets isn't what we need."
Notice the ultimatum given, we will boycott until you cave to our demands.
Now look at an email ANP recieved from a reader, which was a copy of a communication sent to SimpliSafe, who told Think Progress "We have discontinued our existing relationship with the NRA."
Letter via email to ANP, titled "SimpliSafe Boycott letter":
My husband and I were planning on ordering SimpliSafe. However, your politically-correct decision to boycott the NRA has led us to boycott your product. Considering SimpliSafe is a security company and has dissed the 2nd Amendment of the United States, your decision seems counter-productive.
SimpliSafe will now suffer a boycott from plain old folks like us. Please grasp this: We are many, strong, and have a very loud voice. Remember Target’s and Starbuck’s politically-correct decisions blunders? We, as a group, have not graced the doors of these establishments and their stockholders/employees have felt the financial repercussions.
Oh, my; SimpliSafe has made a grave error, all in the name of political-correctness. How sad for you all!
Notice there was no ultimatum given, no option to change this decision or we will stop using your services until you do... nope, just a refusal to use or ever consider using the services again. Period.
Even on social media you can see the difference, as comments to Enterprise's response to Go Harvard, informing them "We ended the discount for NRA members. This change will be effective March 26," are full of people letting Enterprise know they have now actually lost customers.
Here are just a few examples from one of the many responses to the liberals threatening them with a boycott, telling them they caved to the liberals' threats:
* Thanks for letting me know you cave easily to the lunatics on the left! I use your Parker, CO location quite a bit, guess I won’t be now! Bye Felicia!
* And I will never rent another vehicle from Enterprise again. You are not a smart company.
* Thanks for letting me know. Booking trip to Maui. WILL NOT be using your rental car services.
* Enterprise was my goto car rental company. I guess I won't doing business with your company again
* I will never rent from @enterprisecares again. You've alienated half the country. Good luck with that.
* You also alienated every gun owner in America. Did you think this would be only of concern to NRA members?
* #boycottenterprise #BoycottEnterpriseRentACar Long time customer long gone. You have just alienated over 5 million law abiding citizens. The NRA killed no one today, yesterday, last week, last month.
* Enterprise has been my car rental company of choice the last few years. That ended today, and just in time since I need to reserve a car for a trip in 3 weeks. I would have been really ticked if I had rented it yesterday.
* Well, that was craven even if not entirely unexpected. Never doing business with your company again. See how easy that is?
* Thanks for letting me know who not to rent from. Also, I'll be sure that the company I work for also ends any relationship.
That is just a small sample and only from one response thread to the decision, from just one of the companies that made their announcements on Twitter, and it is representative of what is being seen in all of them.
The responses show that there is a huge difference between an organized threat to boycott from the left side of the political aisle in an intimidation campaign, and an actual grassroots responsive boycott, where there is no threat, no ultimatums given, people just decide to never again use the services of those that allowed themselves to be intimidated by the liberal left.
Unlike liberals threatening these companies, patriotic Americans watch and wait, let these companies show whether they are willing to stand up for the constitution and the Second Amendment, or whatever the issue of the day is that liberals are whining about, and then they act accordingly if the companies cave to the threats and intimidation campaigns.
There is a long list of the companies that cowered to the liberal left and abandoned the NRA, who is fighting for all of our rights, with their contact information provided below the Judge Jeanine commentary in regards to this attempt to disarm America.

February Note to Readers - If we make it through March when we start seeing the revenue generated by the new ad network, we may just have a chance to turn big techs' bias back against them and come through this stronger, louder and more powerful, together. February 2018 has been the most brutal month yet due to the censorship we have been battling against this past year, so any extra readers may be able to spare for donations is greatly appreciated.
