No more TV, Netflix or movies.....
Do networks, Netflix, production companies and the like distance themselves from from the Hollywood elite sexual deviants too or is it just from people like Josh Duggar? Sexual deviancy is only an issue if you are thought to be conservative. Will there be anything left to watch or will the narrative soon be that all of these people coming forward are just liars looking for a paycheck? Personally, I find it hilarious that the left was screaming about Trump's war on women all the while their hero's are the ones actually violating any woman, man or child they can coerce, buy off or force into some freaky sexual act.
These guys are all sick, disgusting and hypocritical.
I just cancelled out Netflix account the other day. Won't miss them a bit as we don't watch it hardly at all and the programming for the kids is less than edifying.
I'm so mad at liberals I smashed my TV to pieces and moved into a cave where I will never have to experience anything ever done or uttered by a liberal.
Seriously, there are sick disgusting, hypocritical individuals of all political, ethnic and religious persuasions. I don't condone any of it but I also won't let any of it get in the way of the manner in which I choose to live my life. If you choose to boycott anything having to do with liberals, knock yourselves out. You would literally have to live in a cave to actually do it.
I don't live in a cave and I've boycotted many different companies and associations for a variety of reasons. Target, Gander Mountain, Perkins, The NRA (Gasp!), North American Hunting Club (Gasp again), movies with certain individuals that I refuse to pay to watch, the local Ford dealership service center, Morries Automotive, Walser Automotive, gay bars, the NBA, and most recently the NFL (and I LOVE football!). There's "living in a cave" and living by your convictions and standing for principals you believe strongly in all the time, not just when convenient or politically correct. One of the biggest beefs I have with modern pop culture is it's ability to brainwash otherwise decent people into blindly following and supporting their industry lockstep. Just like that Aaron Tippin song, you gotta stand for something or you'll fall for anything..
I canceled everything mostly because it was trash and a waste of time , sports programming was the last to go. I found a used DVD store with just about any movie you could imagine most titles are $1.99 the best part is Hollywood gets zero. I have a massive collection of great movies most were made before 1960. We can order DVD’s and cd’s from our library too. It’s a 4 mile round trip walk to pick them up. We listen to lots of music again used cd’s and we rip into mp format. The time I used to spend watching sports I use to go on hikes, fish more, do stuff with the family, hobbies etc. I think most would benefit in their waistlines and marriages by dumping most media.
You are kidding yourself South Farm. If you buy anything from any company you are doing business with people that have values different from yours. But, if it makes you feel all righteous to give up things you enjoy (like NFL football) knock yourself out. It will all go on without you. If you really want to stand for something try volunteering for veteran's organizations, donating to food shelves, or helping a local family in need. I do all of that, plus hunting, fishing, hiking, spending time with family, etc. and still have time to watch the dreaded NFL.
We know you are twisted Doc being a Viqeens fan. The old saying rings true here. Hope in one hand crap in the other see which one fills up first when it comes to the Queens winning a Super Bowl *-)
Yep, you have to be a sadist to keep following the Vikings but at least they all stand for the national anthem ;)
I find it amusing that people choose to boycott the NFL because a few bad apples won't stand for the anthem or Netflix because of those horrible liberal actors. That's certainly your choice but weirdly selective. The same people have a closet full of clothes made in China or Indonesia, made by people that never stand for our anthem and deep down hate all Americans. How many workers at Ford, GM and other auto makers are pedophiles, sexual harassers, BLM members, liberals and non-patriots but I don't see any of you giving up your cars to boycott the auto industry. When you do I will know you are serious about making a stand and not just making noise.
I'm with you Pig Doc. I never much bought into the "boycott" thing. Granted, there are some businesses (mostly local) that I choose not to support for a variety of reasons, but at the end of the day, I'm not going to punish myself, either financially or otherwise, when they don't agree with me on every issue.
When you start down that road, you might just as well become Amish.
I had a friend tell me the other day that because of the "kneeling," he was not longer going to watch NFL football. He emphatically said "screw them, I'm watching college football only!"
I didn't say anything but I wonder if he realizes that in most cases, the universities that he chooses to support instead are MUCH more at odds with his beliefs than any NFL team ever was or ever will be.
Made me chuckle...
I gave up satillite and Netflix 7 years ago. If something is that important, it'll be on radio or broadcast TV. Of which I have but watch rarely. I'm posting this via my phone....
I don't formally announce "I'm boycotting" anyone...I just simply don't patronize their business...and before I do that the business has to have deliberately or purposely done something or made a statement in opposition to my convictions. Nobody is perfect, and I'm sure eventually I could find a reason not to step foot in most businesses if I really wanted to look that hard, but I focus on just those who have gone out of their way and made public a political or cultural statements...rather than focus on what their business is they've decided to make a political stance so I have no qualms in making my own against them.
Makes sense. Chipotle falls into that category for me. I would starve before I spent a penny there. They have lied to their customers about American agriculture with their "Farmed and Dangerous" video series. They also lie about the quality and sourcing of their ingredients. I have enjoyed watching them spiraling down the drain. Karma is a bitch.
I need to cancel all that stuff too.....I literality have everything you can possible get. satellite radio, directv, Netflix, hulu, audible, spotify, it goes on an on. I'm probably forking out a few hundred a month on all that junk. I haven't listened to the satellite radio in my truck in a few years...
