Gee, does that mean that all the civil rights leaders who used boycotts to end discrimination were wrong? Does that mean that we shouldn't boycott someone who expressly advocates racism?
What a load of garbage. The left fully supports economic retaliation and ostracism as legitimate tools on tons of issues. They may not believe it is right in this case because they disagree on the substance of the statement. But for them to attack the concept of boycotts is ridiculous.

Yeah, you're absoulutely right. Did Gore say anything about "democracy taking a hit" when Rush and Dr. Laura were threatened with boycotts by the Left? Actually, boycotts are democracy in action, since they demonstrate the "will of the people."
And everytime a Democrat or a leftist takes up with the chx, instead of helping them, it probably hurts them where it counts anyway, with country fans.
