A boycott and pressure campaign was launched against Brendan Eich, recently named CEO of Mozilla (which owns the Firefox browser), because in 2008 he contributed to a pro-Proposition 8 group. Eich resigned after a revolt against him at his own company due to his contribution.

Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day has proven something I’ve noticed before.

Conservatives are very good at buycotts, but very bad at boycotts.

There have been attempts by some conservative and religious groups to boycott various businesses over political issues. But I can’t think of one, at least not recently, that has caught on.

Or that has...

I can’t say I’m surprised it came to threats from the Mayors of Boston and Chicago, and a Chicago Alderman, to deny Chick-fil-A a business permit because the owners support the traditional definition of marriage as one man – one woman.  Or that two other Mayors, in San Francisco and D.C., have jumped on...

Glenn Greenwald had a post Friday titled Billionaire Romney donor uses threats to silence critics.

The post concerns Frank VanderSloot, an Idaho businessman who Greenwald alleges bullies political opponents by threatening frivolous defamation and copyright suits.  I don’t know if VanderSloot is guilty as charged by Greenwald, but I suspect the story is...

That was the reaction of more than one reader in response to the comments on the post Saturday Night Card Game (How nasty will the general election race card get? This nasty).  I agree.

I’m not sure at what point lines get crossed, but I certainly don’t want to see the comment section here...

I was hesitant to post the video below, but since it is receiving a lot of press coverage, particularly in Utah, it’s not like I’m helping spread something that’s not already out there.  And you have to see what is coming down the pike.

If you thought 2008 was bad, just you wait for...

This whole boycott thing is getting really confusing.

A group called Color of Change is putting pressure on advertisers to stop running ads on the Glenn Beck show on Fox News because Glenn Beck said mean things about Barack Obama. Apparently several advertisers, including Geico, Sargento Cheese, and others, have succumbed to the fear.

Needless to say, the enlightened visionaries...

December 10, 2008 was the “Day Without A Gay” boycott. This foolish boycott was a reaction to California Prop. 8, which enshrined in the California state constitution the traditional definition of marriage. The essence of the boycott, which was modeled on the failed May 1, 2006 “Day Without Immigrants,” was that...

I have argued that the “Mormon boycott” resulting from the passage of California Proposition 8 is both unjustifiable and harmful to the cause of gay marriage. (See my article at American Thinker and post immediately below). In an article titled Boycotts That Backfire, Jennifer Vanasco does not address the anti-Mormon nature...

See my article, It’s Time To Speak Out Against The “Mormon Boycott”, at American Thinker. Read the article, and the documentation of the growing movement to boycott Mormon stores, businesses, and to subject individual Mormons to harassment.

Whether there is a constitutional right to change the traditional definition of marriage, or whether...
