This Anheuser-Busch Boycott Is About More Than Transgenderism

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

There seems to be some confusion among some conservatives as to why we’re boycotting Anheuser-Busch after it made Dylan Mulvaney, a transgender influencer with millions of followers, one of its spokesmen. While right-leaning contrarians were always going to do the opposite of whatever a majority of conservatives agree on, there are a few major players that typically have the respect of the right also calling for caution.

Donald Trump Jr., for instance, warned everyone that Anheuser-Busch is actually a chronic donator to Republicans and boycotting them is probably a bad play. With his dad fighting for the White House again, being on a major corporation’s good side is a tactical move that could result in big campaign dollars, especially when that candidate’s family is going against the grain to help keep business good.

“We looked into the political giving and lobbying history of Anheuser-Busch and guess what? They actually support Republicans,” he said.

“In woke corporate America, Anheuser-Busch supports Republicans. Last cycle their employees and their PAC [Political Action Committee] gave about 60 percent to Republicans,” Trump Jr. added.

The Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh came back directly at him by highlighting that the issue of transgenderism has become so pervasive that even a conservative-friendly company like Anheuser-Busch felt the need to promote it, and this is how we slip further into the mire.

Love him or hate him, Walsh is right.

This boycott is about more than just some transgender influencer normalizing a mental disorder that destroys and rots everything it touches.

What this really is about is America’s slide further into the shallow existence that is modernity. We’re resisting a programmed life of weakness and fear, where a simple word can send someone spiraling into a mental breakdown. Where obedience to the rabid and unthinking mob comes before individual wisdom and calm reasoning. We’re resisting a regression to a time when life didn’t mean much and freedom was a joke.

This isn’t about transgenderism, it’s about a future where our children can grow up without having to fear defying the mob, the state, or the education system. Where they can be more concerned about who is going to play hide-and-seek with them on the playground than whose pronouns they need to respect lest they find themselves on the receiving end of their teacher’s wrath. Where they can learn and embrace real realities and advance our species through being inspired by the mystery that is God’s creation.

And more than all of this, this is about a fear of God, not a fear of government. This is about recognizing that they are lovingly made, not born a mistake that predators must help correct.

This is what the American dream is made of, and loyalty to it should not be for sale at the price of campaign donations.

We are in nothing short of a war of good vs. evil. The slippery slope isn’t steep and one little allowance here and one little shrug-off there seems like nothing but these little losses we accept pile up. Before we know it, we’ve nickel-and-dimed ourselves out of a gift given to us by better men.

The Anheuser-Busch boycott needs to continue. It has to hurt so badly that they never even think to go down that road again, and no business needs to think they can just buy our forgiveness, especially businesses that lean conservative.

This isn’t a fight we can ease up on because this is a fight for everything.
