i just read that people were protesting in the amazon store today bc apparently the MONOPOLIZING asshats have been aiding technology to ICE/homeland security. i read several articles about it before i decided to post about it, but if you need a quick run down, here ya go.
last week, i got into it with a bunch of shithole trumpettes on an instagram post regarding advertising at citifield. apparently they thought allowing chick fil a to advertise on the foul poles was a good idea IN NYC… A WEEK BEFORE PRIDE NIGHT. well, i’m boycotting the mets until those shits are gone (if you’re unaware, they are anti-LGBTQ – i don’t care if they apologized for it or not – and have also donated to a company that’s affiliated to conversion therapy). i should honestly boycott them until the fucking wilpons are no longer in power, but that’s a whole other story. if only all people could get onboard at the same time and hit em where it hurts the most, aka the wallet, we’d have more power. by “we”, i mean people with brains and consciences, that want change in this hateful world.
i told my boyfriend last night that i found out a bunch of fast food places that are either more for dems or republicans/conservative, and some of our favorites were on the list. i told him i didn’t want to support the conservative ones anymore, even if that means rattling my comfortable first world preferences.
what spawned this post was that like everything else for people my age, they bitch and complain about it but they don’t stop using certain services. amazon is a monopoly affecting so many different things we’re not even aware of, and everyone hands money to them with absolutely no problem – even knowing they dislike jeff bezos. it’s because of sheer laziness and “convenience”. it’s unreal how people have zero principles just because it’s easier not to stop using it.
i haven’t purchase a thing from amazon in two years. i had a gift card my manager gave me from my last job for xmas that i used last year, and that was that, but i haven’t purchased anything since sometime in 2017. i try to tell people to stop using it all the time and they just laugh it off. these are the same people who are complaining about injustice. i don’t get it.
look at the shit going down with equinox and soulcycle… trainers at soulcycle are pleading that people boycotting is taking money away from them, and that they don’t stand for what the CEO/owner is doing… lol. well, y’all live in tHe GrEaTeSt CoUnTrY oN eArTh, go start your OWN business and bring those people with you. clients are usually loyal enough to follow… just a thought.
again, IT IS ABOUT NO LONGER LINING THE POCKETS OF THESE DISGUSTING IDIOTS.
clearly we can’t get everyone on the same page, so now we all hypocritically sit back and watch others suffer. it’s gross.
WAKE UP, PEOPLE.
it’s sick and sad that right wing dopes don’t “get it” until it affects them personally. they really don’t want to open their minds or admit that they’re wrong. it’s insane.
this country/world/time we’re living in is so depressing. it’s come so far, but not really all that far at all. in fact, my boyfriend and i were watching the CNN docs about the decades, and the stuff on the economy, war and racial segregation back in the 60s was so confusing and especially heartbreaking re: the segregation. i sat there crying watching that disgusting crap. i can’t believe how disgusting humans can really be, and how things haven’t fully changed all of these years later.
PLEASE STOP USING AMAZON AS YOUR GO TO.
use local stores so they don’t close – this is common sense. also: STOP GIVING THESE FUCKOS MONEY.
PLEASE DON’T BE RACIST, HOMOPHOBIC, TRANSPHOBIC, ETC.
look at yourself in a mirror. you feel like yourself, you know yourself and how you feel about others. gay/trans people feel like that’s themselves. why is this such a hard concept? people with skin that isn’t the color of your own, IT IS JUST SKIN. wtf is wrong with you racist tools?
DO SOME READING AND RESEARCH BEFORE YOU HAND OVER POWER TO CERTAIN COMPANIES.
BE NICER TO PEOPLE.
DON’T BE SEXIST.
KEEP YOUR RELIGIOUS IDEALS TO YOUR DAMN SELVES.
this country DOES NOT EQUAL christianity, and even if it did, jesus would be HIGHLY disappointed in a lot of you and what’s been going on down here.
i’m sorry, i’m just so sick of things going so damn horribly with no light at the end of the tunnel. i have to live for another few decades, i’d like to do it seeing SOCIAL AND ECONOMICAL PROGRESS, without the endless struggles.
