You do realize those aren't random employees, right?

They're the people in charge who make decisions like where to advertise.

Stop making it sound like he's harassing the poor minimum wage worker at the drive thru.

Does this mean that gun nuts now will have to go eat what passes for food at Arby's in a show of solidarity? Because damn - that would be an display of principles way, way above and beyond. I'd almost admire that.

She doesn't. It's just that she's made her job - in fact, her entire public persona - dependent on pleasing the sponsors, and he hasn't. This isn't rocket science.

Here are some of the comments made about Ingraham's bullying statement about the teen:

Wayfair-“The decision of an adult to personally criticize a high school student who has lost his classmates in an unspeakable tragedy is not consistent with our values,”

TripAdvisor-“We also believe Americans can disagree while still being agreeable, and that the free exchange of ideas within a community, in a peaceful manner, is the cornerstone of our democracy. In our view, these statements focused on a high school student cross the line of decency,”

Please explain how a high school student can bully a corporation into doing his will. David must be a lot more powerful than we give him credit for. I'll pop some corn and be right back.
Not surprising that you are fine with innocents being dragged into the fray.

Not particularly fond of Steven Crowder, but this video sums up Hogg pretty well

Prove that is what their job is.

It really does not matter IF that is what their job is, posting personal info about them just to force them to do something is disgusting.

"harassing a poor minimum wage worker"? So, you think it's okay to harass someone who worked hard to get where they are? geez!!!!




The left is proving over and over that they have no moral values.
