They pissed off a huge slice of the American people and now they are paying for it.
Bribing retailers to keep putting it on their shelves will not work.
100 million dollar sponsorships of UFC will only destroy ....the UFC.
Everything the Bud Light brand touches will turn to stone.
Anheiser-Busch executives are not smart enough to just end the brand before it takes down the entire A-B/inBev conglomerate.
The same behavior is seen in Ukraine. Keep pumping money into it till we get the results we want.
It's a disease running rampant with anyone above middle management.
It called doubledown-tripledown-fuck syndrome.
It perfectly fits the description of insanity, trying the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.
Now, I don't have a dog in this fight as I'm rather neutral when it comes to ID politics. I think it's all contrived and used to divide us anyway, as in divide and conquer.
It is certainly dividing us, and we are, for all intent and purposes, conquered.
But a very valuable precedent is put before us here. A very large segment of the populous has been angered to seething indignation.
And this is not the people anybody should want to tic off. Conservatives, (religious or otherwise), deplorables, (Trump supporting or not), beer drinkers, well, you never want to piss off beer drinkers.
The point is, these people never forget. And they will hold a grudge for a quarter of a millennium (since the Federalists lost power).
And they're vengeful, very vengeful. Many of them still fly their battleflag on their pickup trucks.
Yeah, those people.
The damage they are doing to A-B/inBev is something the BDS movement can only dream of.
The power of numbers is awesome.
As Americans, we hold immense power in our pocketbook. We can destroy multinational corporations with just what is in our wallets.
Our battle is not with a bunch of puppets on a string of greenbacks in DC.
The battle is with their puppetmasters, the multi-national corporations and their owners.
"The party spirits serves always to distract the Public Councils, and enfeeble the Public Administration. It agitates the Community with ill-founded jealousies and false alarms; kindles the animosity of one part against another, foments occasionally riot and insurrection. It opens the door to foreign influence and corruption, which find a facilitated access to the government itself through the channels of party passions. Thus the policy and the will of one country are subjected to the policy and will of another".
We have witnessed what a weaponized dollar can do to whole countries around the world.
We need to pick up this weapon and start wielding it to re-assert our right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
Divide and conquer them one at a time.
They have no defense against this kind of assault.
Forget about putting the fear of God in them.
They need to fear us.
We can start with Anheiser-Busch/inBev.
Thread is open.
