Time for a boycott!

I love boycotts, and have for years. There’s just something empowering about a whole bunch of us small, insignificant little pissants using collective action to “stick it to the man,” regardless if it’s a country, a personality, or a large, monolithic corporation. Personally, I boycott all kinds of shit. I was quite the fan of the “Flush Rush” boycott when I could still see well enough to spend long hours in front of the monitor, sending e-mails to corporate sponsors. And personally, I’ve been boycotting Papa John’s pizza for years, ever since their asshole founder said that he planned to cut employee hours just enough to make sure that he didn’t have to offer them medical insurance. And though I have never tried one, I will never set foot into a Chik-Fil-A, or a Hobby Lobby, due to their discriminatory anti LGBTQ policies. It’s like a mosquito on an elephant’s ass, they don’t even notice, but it makes me feel all righteous and shit, so I’m happy. But we are rapidly approaching the day of the commencement of a new boycott. But not by us, you and I, at least not immediately. Give me a minute here to explain, and I think you’ll get the picture, and the benefits of the boycott. If there’s one thing that El Pendejo Presidente is an expert at, it’s victimization, on both sides of the coin. For decades now, His Lowness has been victimizing both his customers, with the substandard crap he peddles, as well as his long history of welshing, and his employees, through his racism, misogyny, and dehumanizing practices. But Trump is also a world champion at playing the victim, portraying himself as a helpless innocent, being cruelly abused by anybody who doesn’t think that he’s the greatest thing since sliced bread. And I can smell another round of victimization, and a whopper at that, commencing shortly. Trump has always had a love-hate relationship with the media. He loves it when they plaster his ugly mug all over the television, but hates it when they treat him like he’s not all-that-and-a-bag-of-chips. The perfect example of this is when he abruptly cut off the daily White House press briefings, to keep Sarah Huckabee Sanders from telling the portly behemoth to take-this-job-and-shove-it. But that’s about to change. forget the fallout of the Mueller report, Trump is about to need the media more than he has in years. Because, he’s up for reelection, and it’s shaping up to look like Armageddon.Trump cruised through 16 other challengers in the GOP primary field of 2016 by denying all of the other candidates oxygen. This was strictly the fault of the major networks, who saw his improbable campaigning combination of Ernest-goes-to-camp coupled with the less savory aspects of Andrew Dice Clay as ratings gold. After the election, the media got taken behind the woodshed over its conduct, and that seems to have stuck. Both CNN and MSNBC have started giving extended interviews to not only announced Democratic candidates, but to Wlliam Weld, Trump’s primary challenger as well. Both networks have started airing frequent candidate “town halls,” and even FOX was shamed into hosting one with Bernie Sanders, and Pete Buttigieg’s campaign is in negotiations. Congressman Eric Swalwell was also a repeat guest on FOX, and it can only be assumed that […]
