Starbucks Buy-cott Feb. 14

Bitter has an interesting post on Shall not be Questioned about the absurd claims made by the new Brady boycott of Starbucks regarding their support-numbers, and she give a sampling of comments made to their Facebook page:

  • “reeeely EZ to boycott a place I never go lol”
  • “Oh I have HATED coffee shops for many many years..EASY PEASY!”
  • “I ALWAYS boycott Starbucks because of Schultz’ views about Palestine”
  • “I have always boycotted Starbucks.”
  • “I don’t do Starbucks because I don’t drink coffee.”
  • “I am in a perpetual boycott of their sub par hot chocolate and overpriced pretentious products.”
  • “This may not be as difficult for me as some others. I’ve never been in a Starbucks.”
  • “I HAVE NEVER BEEN IN A STARBUCKS FACILITY BUT I SUPPORT WHAT YOU ARE DOING BECAUSE YOU HAVE ALWAYS BEEN A CONSIENCIOUS PERSON WHO ADVOCATED FOR ISSUES THAT WERE IMPORTANT TO PEOPLE.”
  • “I quit using Starbucks more than a year ago, but I totally support your efforts on this important issue!!”

It seems evident to me that by relying on “social-media” (Facebook) they have narrowed their prospective client-base of anti-freedom protestors to those individuals with impaired brain-activity – but just imagine what the comments (and Boycott page) might be like if they advocated on MySpace!

  1. Hi Brigid, hope the leg is all better soon!
    Yes Fred! So that's what they call it, a “wall”? I avoid the antis as much as I can since they're beneath dignity.

  2. Easy Peasy??

    I'd be afraid to look at what would be on MySpace.

    Thanks for the “follow”, I've got to head home tomorrow but it's been a few good days off :-).
