Skip to comments.Hobby Lobby boycotters not crafty enough to win

Facebook and Twitter are on fire. I havent seen people so angry about anything since the 2012 decision on Obamacare. One item of interest: people announcing boycotts of Hobby Lobby and confidently predicting that it will soon be out of business.
If you are among those hoping for the rapid demise of the company, I have bad news: The boycott is almost certainly going to fail. Almost all boycotts fail, but especially those staged as proxy battles in the culture wars.
Most boycotts fail because most people just dont have the intensity to keep them up. In 2003, folks were promising to boycott French products such as Dannon yogurt over the countrys stance on Iraq, but Dannon is still on the shelves and seems to be selling well. (Losing market share to the Greek invasion, to be sure, but as far as I know that has no political content other than the love of a creamier, richer taste in your fermented dairy products.) A few years later, liberals were going to boycott Whole Foods because well, I dont remember what the CEO had done, but Im sure it was something. Whole Foods is also suffering from increased competition in its core business. The boycott seems to have had little to no effect.
Its just hard to maintain that sort of intensity when youre busy and vacation is coming up, and Mom needs help with her computer, and yes, honey, Ill stop on the way home and pick up more yogurt. For all but the most bitterly partisan of partisans, motivation eventually gives way to more pressing concerns such as convenience.
Culture warriors face two additional problems:
They tend to want to boycott places they never shopped at in the first place.

I will shop at Hobby Lobby and buy something I don’t especially want.
...just to make a point.
Like any of these condom chewing, baby killers shop at Hobby Lobby. ROTFL! What a bunch of retards! Funny stuff.
Dear leftards: Think Chic-Fil-A.
I seriously doubt those people shopped at Hobby Lobby anyway.
The same Marxists trying to punish another Free Market business, Yawn!
Pray America wakes up
Boycott, boycott, star on their hat!
But nobody know where de boycott at!
Anyone notice how obsessed the left is with sex? Gay marriage, teaching kindergardeners about sex, free contraceptions, lower the age of consent, abortion......
Good ole Ronald Reagan has the best answer:
I’ll make damn sure that the next time I am in Redding I will stop by a Hobby Lobby and take one of their employees out to lunch at a Chic-Fil- A.
Never been to either place (never had a reason), but I will make a point of it now.
I wonder how the Dicksie Chics feel about that?
It's a completely different market segment. If Hobby Lobby sold sex toys, pornography or marijuana, they might have something to worry about, but they don't.
In the summer of 2012, at the height of the leftie’s “boycott” of Chic-Fil-A, I stopped at a Chic-Fil-A just outside San Antonio to get lunch for my daughter and me.
It took me 5 passes in the parking lot to get a space. We got inside and every register was manned and the lines were all the way to the wall. The workers were cheerful, exceedingly polite and swamped. It was like a Chinese fire drill, except very organized and efficient.
It was like that across the country for months.
I’m sure Hobby Lobby would love to be a victim of that kind of boycott.
I discovered some time ago that most of the stuff in Hobby Lobby is from China and there’s hardly anything there that I need. I do get seasonal stuff sometimes. I buy my religious stuff at my local Catholic bookstore or order it online. But maybe I’ll go buy something.
I’ve honestly never been a in Hobby Lobby
But I will certainly look at its website and go into the next store I see
FU Libtards . . . pay for your damn stuff
Commie lib, metrosexual girlymen are the reason they call them boycotts instead of mancotts.
They sell gift cards. You select the amount.If there is a Hobby Lobby near you, you already know someone who would love a gift card!
Churches,students,artists, crafters, anyone who has pictures they want to display or anyone who decorates their home or office.
Just remember, they are all closed on Sunday. ;>)
that is classic look like this when Ronnie running in 1976 or 1980
LOL but true.
I remember one boycott which worked. In 1977 or 1978, Southland Life and their 7-11 stores started selling Playboy magazines and the Christian community went bonkers. With in two or three months, Southland Life backed down and took them totally off the racks in 7-11s, and as far as I know, never returned.
yeah that reason I always wait for Hobby Lobby cirular
You have to be able to know how to do something useful in order to boycott someone like Hobby Lobby, and if you know how to do something useful, you probably don’t care who pays for your $10.00 packet of birth control pills.
The great social media dustoff has had one positive benefit for me personally...
Closet Leftists masquerading as my friends have outed themselves, their hate visible for all to see.
No invites to the mead hall will be forthcoming.
Hobby Lobby got tons of Mega-good publicity out of this battle. The creeps never shopped there anyway.
Doubtful the “boycotters” ever patronized HL.
There’s a Chick Fil-A across the street from our Hobby Lobby.
A Chick Fil-A sandwich & a trip to HL’s frame department to buy a display case for my collectible handguns.
Wish I knew a liberal to tell this to. Steam coming out the ears would result.
Their website won’t give you an accurate view of what a store is like.
For instance, they have a very good selection of home décor accessories and seasonal décor. At Christmas it is positively enchanting, and their sale prices are impressive.
Yes. To the adolescent left, unprotected sex without consequences is an entitlement.
Hobby Lobby is a great place. Lots and lots a neat stuff. Best place to get ideas for a class project.
“I will shop at Hobby Lobby and buy something I dont especially want.
...just to make a point.”
I’ll join you. There’s a H.L. not too far from me, I’ve never been in it but am going to stop by there tomorrow and most likely buy a few things.
Yep. They made the mistake of angering the people who actually bought their music.
there is more wallets on the right than the left.
Dixie Chix are gone
people vote with their wallets.
Dixie Chicks have a website but no news and no upcoming concerts.
Leftists demand we stay out of their bedrooms ... and demand we pay for everything that happens therein.
He who pays the piper calls the tune.
I’m sure Hobby Lobby will get along just fine, boycott or no boycott.
