Most people who boycott this or that are hypocrites at best. There are numerous boycotts of Chick-fil-A by morons on the left. It is too bad that the idea of boycotting a store because of politics of its owner seems to have equal hold on many that have posted here. Small business people it seems have no free speech. Does it really matter how much wrong this Pizza shops’ politics are? What should matter is the quality of the food and service.

Cry me a river. Am I not free to choose who I do business with?

Really? So, If I decide not to buy a product from a company because they give millions of dollars to destructive left-wing causes, that makes me a hypocrite?

Can you explain why that would be so? I don't understand how you can make an incendiary blanket statement like that.

I have seen NOBODY advocating the place be shut down, or there be any kind of fine, or any violence toward the company or its employees. People are simply saying they will not patronize the place, and are suggesting others do the same.

I don't think you understand freedom of speech. There is no unlimited freedom of speech as the yelling of "Fire!" in a crowded movie theater would illustrate.

With freedom of speech comes responsibility.

If a clergyman exercises his "freedom of speech" on his pulpit to pump up liberal causes such as abortion on demand, higher taxation and big government, should members of his church be accused of hypocrisy if they decide to go to another parish and deprive him of their monetary and religious support?

Is THAT hypocrisy? Nothing personal, I don't know you well enough to make is so, but that post of yours made me shake my head.

Small business owners have free speech. This guy was filmed hugging Obama. No one stopped him.

And now we’re going to use our free speech not to shop there.

Aren’t you tired of Know-it-all Hollywood types who make millions of dollars go to public events and mocking people like us and what we believe? Our money is the only reason they are rich.

Trust me - if I was working for the know-it-all Hollywood types and said something they didn’t like, they’d fire me.

I’m tired of “Free Speech” always being a one way street with oncoming traffic.

This guy said his piece - now I’m going to say mine.

I do not knowingly spend a penny of my money with businesses that I know are owned by leftists. If that makes me a hypocrite, so be it. Posting rules prevent further response.
