Buying Power

Saturday, March 6, 2021

In 2021, wokeness and cancel culture fill the air like ash from a recent volcanic eruption.  We have a new administration, more than two genders, more illegal “non-citizens” entering the country, and too many companies who are more perceptively woke than ever.  

For many conservative Americans, the time has come to show our wokeness but without the violence.  It’s time to use cancel culture in an American way for a change. American buying power must be used to slow the ideologies that are damaging our culture and our country.

Recently, we’ve seen conservative outlets like the Parlor app, several books on gender, and even Dr. Seuss children’s books canceled or pulled from various platforms.  These are just a few examples of the attacks from the liberal and often radical ideologies of today.

On the other hand, Netflix is streaming a movie called “Cuties” which sexualizes young girls around the age of 11, the Hasbro Potato Head has basically gone transgender, Nike promotes and sponsors players that kneel during the national anthem, and the owner of the Dallas Mavericks (Mark Cuban from Shark Tank) decided not to play the national anthem at basketball games because he spoke with the community that felt, “It did not fully represent them."

These companies and individuals have made millions from many Americans buying into their products.  It’s time to take a stand as a household, as a family, and as Americans.  We cannot continue to fund the ideologies that are eating away at American life like a cancer.  Challenge that monthly streaming subscription, walk with different shoes on your feet, and go to a different sporting event that embraces patriotism.  Question these purchases on all levels, including locally.  If you cancel, be sure to let them know why you’re not buying into their narrative.  And instead, you will buy American.

Senator Blackburn: The Fight For Election Integrity

If you liked the chaos of the pandemic election, you’re going to love the left’s new effort to complicate voting in America.

Rather than addressing Americans’ genuine concerns about never-ending ... (click for more)

Counterattacking CFC Pummels LA Force

Where did Tate Robertson go? The Los Angeles Force’s defender must have wondered that as the CFC winger made magic on Finley Stadium's artificial turf. Robertson dashed down the right sideline, and then began to retreat when his defender caught up. But like former Hawk Steve Smith back in the day, Robertson suddenly deked back to the touchline after selling the retreat. He ... (click for more)
