Liberal Boycott of In-N-Out Burger Backfires Spectacularly

Last week, liberals in California called for a boycott after they discovered that the West Coast hamburger chain In-N-Out donated $25,000 to Republicans. But now, three days after the boycott was called, we find what a crashing failure the effort to punish the restaurant chain was.

The liberal hatefest was kicked off by a tweet from “journalist” Gabe Schneider

As soon as the activist “journalist” posted the tweet, the hate fest began.

California’s fascist Democratic Party chairman Eric Bauman actually had the stones to call for a boycott of the fast food joint.

But only hours passed before the California Democrat Party began to distance itself from its own chief. On top of that, Chairman Bauman suddenly — and uncharacteristically — went silent.

As Zero Hedge wrote:

After Bauman’s tweet went viral and made national news, Bauman referred questions to the party’s communications director, John Vigna, who responded that the Bauman’s tweet was “just his personal view,” and that the official California Democratic Party was not involved.

“We’re not happy that In-N-Out gave the money, but we’re not calling for an official boycott,” Vigna said. “Democrats are very fired up. Chair (Bauman) is definitely giving voice to a feeling a lot of people have right now.”

Amusingly, boycotts of companies that give money to the opposition would take political partisanship to a whole new level. The SF Chronicle looked at 2018 donations to the two main California parties, to show just what dueling, tit-for-tat boycotts could mean for businesses.

Democrats, for example, would have to avoid not only In-N-Out, but also Facebook, Target, Microsoft, Anheuser-Busch, McDonald’s and virtually every oil company. They’re just some of the many groups that have given money to the state Republican Party this year.

For Republicans, boycotting Democratic supporters would mean never using Uber, not drinking Gallo wine or Pepsi, dropping T-Mobile cellular service, refusing to have garbage hauled by Recology or to go to a Paramount Pictures movie.

Even Republican John Cox, who is running for California Governor, got a chance to slam the Democrats:

One Twitter user even posted a video to show that far from creating a boycott, Bauman helped In-N-Out sales soar:

Now that is funny!
