David Hogg’s latest anti-gun hissy fit just backfired in a big way
Anti-gun activist David Hogg organized a “die in” in Publix to protest the Florida grocery store chain’s donation to a Republican candidate for governor.
Publix capitulated to Hogg’s demands.
But he was blindsided when his own protest backfired.
After Hogg’s protest, Publix announced that it was suspending all political donations.
But Publix has donated to candidates on both sides of the aisle, including Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Bernie Sanders, and former DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
The Washington Times reports:
The supermarket giant has also donated more than $760,000 since 2008 to Democratic committees, including at least two dozen candidates for federal office at odds with the NRA.
They include multiple members of the Black Congressional Caucus, former Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and Sens. Michael Bennet of Colorado, Richard J. Durbin of Illinois, Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, Patty Murray of Washington, Bill Nelson of Florida, and Ron Wyden of Oregon.
The grocery chain based in Lakeland, Florida, also chipped in for presidential candidates former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernard Sanders in 2016, as well as then-Sen. Barack Obama in 2008, according to campaign finance records posted by Open Secrets.
Now Hogg is setting his sites on protesting inside Trump Tower.
So when are we doing a die-in at Trump Hotel?

Companies that capitulate to the Social Justice Warriors will only succeed in losing customers.
They’ll never be far enough left to satisfy the likes of David Hogg and Antifa protesters, and patriotic Americans will choose to stop buying their products.
