Anheuser-Busch, the world’s largest beer company, is learning the hard way that the American consumer still has a hidden power against corporate America as their company has lost value. 15.7 billion dollars since April 1 ( source ), when they hired transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney to promote their Bud Light beer, causing sales to plummet across the United States.
This was truly historic, and I must say I have never seen anything like it in my life.
More powerful than protests, even the Occupy Wall Street protests of 2011, and certainly more powerful than voting for politicians, the American consumer’s most powerful voice for protest and change is how they decide to spend their money, voting in the only place that really matters, the market.
And let’s be very clear here and give credit where credit is due. This is NOT simply a “conservative” protest, it is a protest of AMERICANS that crosses political divides. And that’s the main reason why a corporate giant on Wall Street is reeling today and trying to pull back as fast as it can.
Americans reject transgender culture, from biological male trans “females” invading sports and completely wiping all female athletic records off the books, to children killing themselves after undergoing transgender medical procedures, to biological prisoners trans “women” who are incarcerated in women’s prisons. and prisons where rape and sexual abuse are skyrocketing, most Americans say “this has gone too far.”
And by doing so by voting with their money, they are discovering the hidden power of the American consumer to fight back against Wall Street’s billionaires and bankers.
Erick Erickson, writing for the Creators Syndicate, a network of “creators” from various political perspectives, published an analysis of the Bud Light boycott and how it only works when Americans put aside their political differences and unite to fight
Americans, not conservatives, are fighting back
for Erick Erickson
Conservative activists are excited about the Bud Light boycott. Anheuser-Busch, the beer maker, branded a can of Bud Light for transgender activist Dylan Mulvaney. Mulvaney, biologically male, celebrated his first year of life as a “woman.”
The week a transgender activist murdered six people in Nashville, Tennessee, Bud Light released its Mulvaney-themed can.
The reaction began.
Sales of Bud Light beer collapsed across the country. Last week, sales were down more than 20%. The previous week, they were also down more than 20%.
Some grocers are so desperate to offload inventory that they hold buy-one-get-one-free sales and still can’t sell the product. A bar owner tells me that his local Anheuser-Busch distributor has switched from daily deliveries to weekly deliveries and the bar owner is unable to give away his Bud Light supply.
The Wall Street Journal reported last week that Anheuser-Busch “has pledged to increase its marketing spending on Bud Light, speed up production of a new slate of ads and give a case of Bud Light to every employee from an Anheuser-Busch wholesaler.”
The paper also noted, “In the week ending April 22, sales at Bud Light retail stores in the United States fell 21.4% compared to the year-ago period, according to a analysis of Nielsen data by Bump Williams Consulting. Meanwhile, sales of rival brands Coors Light and Miller Lite each grew about 21%. Sales of other Anheuser-Busch brands have also been hit .
Conservatives are singing, but the reality is that this is not a conservative backlash or boycott.
The online right may try to take credit, but the online and offline right are frankly terrible at boycotts.
This is a boycott by Americans. It’s a warning to progressives who keep pushing the trans agenda.
In 2016, Target announced that it would allow men to use women’s bathrooms in Target stores. Americans responded so aggressively against Target that the company spent $20 million to renovate bathrooms and add one-stop restrooms.
The company denied seeing any boycotts or consumer backlash, and later reported a 7% decline in store sales.
Americans, not just conservatives, are exhausted and upset by the constant in-your-face narcissism and bullying of the trans community.
Alissa Heinerscheid, Bud Light’s chief marketing officer, dismissed Bud Light consumers as “too fraternal” and sought to broaden the brand’s appeal to a consumer category that represents less than 1% of North- americans
The Anheuser-Busch CEO responded with an unapologetic apology and took down the Clydesdales and American flags.
Consumers were having none of it.
Most Americans are not connected to social media and engage in either progressive or conservative politics. Americans, however, heard the story from the conservative media, and only later did the mainstream media cover it.
Americans didn’t need conservatives to call for a boycott anymore than they did in 2016 with Target. But unlike Target and a media outlet that insists a 7% drop in sales at Target can’t really be attributed to a consumer backlash, this time there’s no denying it.
Americans point out that they are not down with the trans agenda. They don’t want to politicize their beer.
The Fairfax Bar and Grill in Bloomington, Indiana, is no right-wing watering hole; it’s just a bar full of average americans. But the bar told customers that if they were offended by Bud Light’s Dylan Mulvaney product placement, they should stay away.
“Unfortunately, because of all the bigotry and hate that has arisen around the Bud Light controversy, any patron who wishes to voice their concerns about the issue will be immediately asked to pay their bill and leave our establishment “, the bar owner wrote on Facebook.
So many people stayed away that the bar had to walk back and apologize. The bar’s management admitted it had lost business.
Progressives are very likely to boycott. It is a religious event for them similar to the time of Lent.
Americans generally do not participate in large boycotts. That they did so on this issue for the second time should be a warning sign for American companies.
The nation is not divided on trans issues, but rather united against the agenda.

I don’t know where he got Erickson’s statistics to say that the transgender consumer is a “category that represents less than 1% of Americans”, but the point is well taken that just because a social or political issue has a lot. of money behind it to promote it, doesn’t mean it represents the majority view of Americans.
And you can be sure that the corporate media, along with the alt-right, will continue to try to make the transgender issue simply a “conservative” issue.
Please don’t fall for this! There is no way that this kind of overthrow of a giant on Wall Street can only happen with those who have a political vision.
When you consider the demographics of beer drinkers in the US, do you think more conservatives or more liberals drink beer?
Many religious conservatives are nonalcoholics who abstain from any alcoholic beverages, and beer is most often the alcoholic beverage of choice for blue-collar working Americans, most of whom are political Democrats.
Will the American consumer wake up and realize they have this hidden power?
Now more than ever, it’s time for Americans to take a stand against the Wall Street billionaires and bankers who are destroying this country, but we must stand together and stop falling for partisan politics and political “heroes” who serve their masters. in corporate America.
Big Tech is making its move to control and enslave humanity by controlling the flow of information, and they’re trying to brand Elon Musk as a “conservative” and a “champion of free speech” (none of which are true), because the only way they can control the American population is by keeping them divided on social and political issues.
We have the power to resist, simply by refusing to use their products.
Many of these products that enslave us are offered for free, such as using our biometrics to get an ID that can then be used for more “free” things like universal basic income, which isn’t free at all, but yes enslaving
Do not use their products! Don’t download their apps!
America could stop the technocrats and their plans very easily by doing just one thing: put down the cell phone!
But how many would actually do it?
Too many Americans enjoy the convenience of their cell phone, but that very device will enslave you by communicating everything about you to your slave masters, giving them power over you.
A population that is disconnected is a population that they cannot control.
So start looking for ways to disconnect from the Beast system and stop using their products.
