    That is the question. Just saw a Facebook post about the owner of Gander Mountain's parent company saying Trump voters should stay out of his stores (which eliminates about 98% of his customers, if they listen) and I realized I can't keep track of all the places I'd rather not give any money to.

    So to narrow it down, what businesses are we boycotting because they are anti-gun, anti-conservative, anti-Republican ro anti-American?

    For me:
    Gander Mountain and Camping World - anti-Trump/Republican ownership
    Target - stupid statements on transgender bathrooms and because they suck
    Any place with a "no ccw" sign in the window.
    The NFL - anti=conservative, anti-American, privileged millionaire whiners, anti-white racists, etc.
    Lots more I can't boycott because I don't remember what they are.


    What's on your list?

    For me it’s any mainstream media like CNN or MSNBC and the NFL. I’ve been quite content without either of these aggravations in my life.

    Target
    REI
    Patagonia
    Starbucks
    American Eagle (used to get cargo shorts there until they started selling oppressive Muslim garb)

    There are dozens of companies that came out against the travel ban that I’d like to boycott, but right now there’s no alternative to give my business to.

    It probably would be easier to make a list of companies I will still do business with.

    I'm not clear on the Starbuck's boycott. I actually agreed with them on the gun issue - follow the local law and don't make special rules. What are we boycotting them for now?

    Gander mountain won't be hard for me to boycott. They closed the only one near me after being open just a couple of years. Prices sucked anyway.

    We need an app for this.

    Although technically we should also boycott Apple and Google I suppose.
    And Amazon
    Gander Mountain supposedly sucks anyway
    Patagonia (never bought their stuff anyway)
    Target I guess
    NFL of course
    I think Starbucks did something too
    Dick's Sporting Goods
    Chipolte - might get E Coli (I actually agree with this one)
    Smith and Wesson - ?
    Ruger - 10 round limit thing
    I wanna say Academy Sports and Outdoors, though they are getting skewered about selling the rifles to the Texas shooter - even though the Air Force is the one who ****ed up.

    The list gets longer and longer. Well - at least we should save some money.

    My boycott list is short, mainly because I spend very, very little time in stores that aren't the grocery or hardware variety. There's one local restaurant that my wife and I won't patronize because they got a few hundred grand in various grants to make their so-called historic building suitable for business. Owners of other buildings in the historic district of the same town had to bring their buildings to locally set standards on their own dime.

    Last evening, wife and I went to a new brewery/restaurant in town (she's their CPA) for a pre opening event--they've shelled out many hundreds of thousands of dollars to gut and redo their building both inside and out. I sincerely hope they cut into the above mentioned place hard. Government shouldn't pick small business winners and losers.

    CNN and several other left leaning and highly biased / lying / manipulating networks.

    SC Tiger is right, Amazon and Google should be all the way up in the list. Both are growing "monopolies" with a hefty liberal agenda.

    I'm boycotting all boycotts. And I only buy stuff made in China.

    I've been boycotting Proctor&Gamble for many years, I don't even remember why anymore.

    Other than that, the NFL & their sponsors, Target (starting when they banned the Salvation Army bellringers and continuing for every other dumb thing they've done since then), Chobani (for giving $ to Muslim terrorist organizations), Sara Lee (once again, so long I don't remember why), Ben&Jerry's Ice Cream (liberal idiots), any dog food products made in China (poison/quality control), everything Marion Zimmer Bradley every wrote (child molester, incest, protected other molester(s?)), everything I discover related to libtards, Clintons, Obummers, anti-gunners, and anything else that annoys me. I feel better paying my money to people/organizations that are NOT busily tearing apart everything that is good.
