(Headline USA) An economics professor claimed conservative boycotts of woke companies, such as Bud Light, Target and Kohl’s, were “literally terrorism” during an MSNBC interview last week.
Justin Wolfers, an economics professor at the University of Michigan, was asked about companies’ efforts to distance themselves from LGBT themes following brutally effective backlash from consumers. Wolfers argued the only explanation was that companies such as Bud Light, which publicly distanced itself from transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney after its sales dropped, were “cowards” or victims of “terrorism.”
“Look, one of two things is true,” Wolfers said. “It could be that they’re cowards and used that as protection and a smokescreen so they could make a cowardly decision, or it could be that they’re actually genuinely concerned about the well-being of their employees and have had credible threats.”
Wolfers urged Target, specifically, not to “cave” to boycotts, since doing so would prove that consumers can affect company policy.
“When Target caves into this, then it says that the moment you threaten the employees of even a very large corporation you get to control its policies. This is economic terrorism. Literally terrorism,” he said. “Creating fear among the workers and forcing the corporations to sell the things you want, not sell the things you don’t. So I think it’s very worrying.”
Target is just the latest company to start hemorrhaging sales after embracing woke LGBT ideology. A company insider recently said many locations, especially in rural, southern parts of the country, have relocated their Pride sections to the very back of the store and remove it from all mannequins.
“We were given 36 hours, told to take all of our Pride stuff, the entire section, and move it into a section that’s a third the size. From the front of the store to the back of the store, you can’t have anything on mannequins and no large signage,” the Target insider said.
