The news cycle for much of the month of April has been dominated by the swift national backlash to Bud Light’s new woke extremism marketing strategy.
Boycotts and protests have always been more of a Democrat tactic than anything else.
Countless left-wing organizations literally exist for the sole purpose of “organizing” activists in various activities designed to pressure corporations, politicians, and others to cave to the left-wing outrage mob’s demands.
And other left-wing groups even focus solely on astroturfing – the practice of hiring people off the street to hold signs at protests, make phone calls to politicians and corporations, or even simply push a left-wing message on social media, in order to create the illusion that their positions on issues have far more support than they actually do.
But in the wake of the fiasco surrounding Bud Light’s decision to make extremist transgender activist Dylan Mulvaney its new spokesperson, it’s all those who haven’t been brainwashed by the radical Left who are pushing back.
From working class Americans who are simply tired of seeing radical left-wing propaganda injected into every aspect of society to celebrities like Kid Rock, Travis Tritt, and others, the backlash has stretched to virtually every corner of the U.S., leaving distributors with a nearly endless supply of unsold Bud Light.
In fact, Bud Light sales plummeted so low, its parent company, Anheuser-Busch, lost more than $6 billion in market capitalization within a matter of weeks.
Nevertheless, many Democrats have still clung to the delusion that the Bud Light boycott is simply a “right-wing” ordeal, and that they can continue to force their ideology on the public without consequence.
But according to a new Rasmussen poll, that would be a bad assumption.
Despite the fact that boycotts are rarely embraced by those outside the radical Left, the Rasumussen poll found that a strong majority of Americans support the Bud Light boycott.
“Fifty-four percent of Americans support a Bud Light boycott, including 53 percent of men, 57 percent of white respondents and 66 percent of Republicans, and 57 percent of people under age 40,” Breitbart reported. “Roughly one-third of people in each income group say they ‘strongly support’ the boycott.”
Even more devastating to Democrats is the fact that just 18% of Americans “strongly oppose” the boycott, while more Democrat voters actually support the boycott than oppose it.
“Just 18 percent ‘strongly oppose’ a boycott, including 30 percent of Democrats and 11 percent of Republicans,” the report added. “Overall, a plurality of Democrats say they support the movement, 44-43.”
It simply doesn’t get more decisive than that in American politics in 2023.
Democrats and their media allies can continue to claim that the backlash against Bud Light, and other corporations who employ woke extremism marketing strategies, is an exclusively “far-right” movement all they want.
But when the facts continue to show that while conservatives are certainly embracing boycotts more often these days, it’s really more moderate, Independent, and even Democrat voters who are truly fueling the opposition to their extremist woke agenda, the truth cannot be ignored.
And based on the way things are trending, it would be unwise for Democrats to look past the Bud Light backlash as merely an aberration.
