Does the political position of a corporation influence you as a consumer?

The so-called captains of industry are climbing over each other to kiss the ring and position their organizations on the "correct" side of every social issue that the media proclaims to be relevant. In doing so, they are alienating certain factions of their customer bases.

Have you ever altered your patronage of a corporation due to its political or social moves? If so, who and why?

Yes because unethical companies tend to support exploitation and slavery.

Obviously no one is going to play your game when we all know why you are asking. The topic is just the spin that is being reguritated by the uneducated listeners of far-right white supremacist media outlets and political groups annoyed at people and businesses exercising their right to seek fairer and more equitable states, countries and the world. Once again we find you on the side of those media outlets and political groups.

Yes, I have. I could name several, but for now, I'll tell you about one. Years ago, I bought a set of sheets off our local shopping channel. Highly rated and decent quality. I liked these sheets, but I'll never buy them again because the company is My Pillow. The owner is a complete moron who spreads nothing but lies and ridiculous conspiracy theories. He will never get my business again and I tell everyone I know not to buy his shit.

You win the prize! fart I expected that company would be brought up. If not, I would have brought it up - I just ordered a complete king set and I can not wait. Made in the USA flag

Why are you still posting on this thread? Why even reply in the first place if you can not compose a salient retort? Is it me? batting eyes

An educated person, indeed just any person, would know that if you reply to a person and that person addresses you reply, this is call a conversation.

.

So yes, you inability to understand this basic process is down to you on a general level. In regard to the topic, it is specifically down to you because you cannot address the points I made about how you are always on the side of what is pushed by white supremacists and far right media outlets and political groups. In this case your question coincides with Fox and Co complaining about businesses opposed to tactics by the GOP in places like Georgia.

Yes, if companies support things I don't agree with then I take my business elsewhere. Isn't this what you right wing spangles want? This is the market deciding. Me making a decision to spend my cash with a company that aligns with me is EXACTLY what a free market is all about.
Makes me laugh when you lot shit your guts out when it doesnt go your way, bunch of cry babies.

Those people so easily manipulated into repeating the daily partisan talking points without knowing the facts, that they are being manipulated or not caring about this because they are part of the problem.
