There is a national effort under way, by leftist thugs, to identify and boycott businesses that are owned by supporters of President Trump.

“The data that we plan to publish is publicly available from state governments and the Federal Election Commission. We’re simply indexing that data in a more searchable way, the administrators of “Boycott MAGA” wrote on their Facebook page. “We do not encourage violence against Trump supporters. We simply support ridiculing them, alienating them, and refusing to patronize businesses run by them.”

Economic Damage

Television station KDKA reported that the group claims they have already identified nearly 100 businesses in the Pittsburgh area that are owned by Trump supporters.

“I think it’s important because people have a right to know where their money is going,” Pittsburgh blogger Brian Broome told the television station.

The organization has created a website that promises to “do economic damage to small businesses owned by supporters of Donald Trump via boycotts and other completely legal methods.”

They also plan to leave damaging reviews on websites like Angie’s List and Yelp.

“We intend to not only go after the major corporations who donate to this toxic excuse for a president – we will be listing businesses of all sizes that are owned by Trump supporters,” they wrote. “We will also be taking measures to ensure that no conservative will have access to this listing, as to prevent them from patronizing these businesses.”


Allegheny County councilman Sam DeMarco told the television station that the planned boycotts are dangerous.

“They want to cost people their livelihoods just because you don’t agree with them politically,” he said. “Where does it stop? This is insane.”

The militant sex and gender revolutionaries used similar tactics against supporters of traditional marriage in California and Maryland.

In one instance, leftist thugs protested outside a diner because a waitress had given money to support the fight to defend the biblical definition of marriage.

And of course — in world history — there are instances of people being targeted and boycotted because of their beliefs. Fascism is an ugly business.
