Mike Huckabee’s opinion of a boycott.
Terrorism as a word is thrown around far too often these days. The word has become increasingly muddled in recent history, just take a look at the Wikipedia page devoted to its definition.
Calling anything a form of “terrorism” is a cheap yet effective way of tossing any such labeled idea or action straight into the “anti-America” pigeonhole.
In response to Stuart Wilber’s activism to get companies to cease their relationships with internet marketer Charity Giveback Group over their ties to anti-gay religious organizations. Mr. Huckabee said,
“This is economic terrorism. To try to destroy a business because you don’t like some of the customers is, to me, unbelievably un-American.”
/sigh. Boycotts are as American as apple pie. Many conservatives champion the idea of money equals free speech, at least until that money, or the denial of patronage by consumers, is used against something that they like.
Then again, it could just be that Mr. Huckabee likes his money as he is a consultant for the Charity Giveback Group.
