I see a lot of my feed lamenting that Chik Fil-A is going to stop donating to certain groups like the Salvation Army.
I don’t understand why people are surprised, or why they would expect such out of a corporation.
It’s the same old reactionary defense strategy that is why conservatives lose over and over again. You get outraged, you pine, you buy your products, that’s all.
But what happened here? Is Chik Fil-A in the wrong?
No. In fact, it’s the sensible thing for them to do.
If this were reverse, and they were donating to, say, the ADL, you would be outraged they were donating and cheering when they pull it.
Their primary function is to sell chicken, this was getting in the way of their selling chicken, that is all.
But there’s a lesson to be learned on how to win — it’s not sitting here whining about Chik Fil-A, or reverse boycotting this company that for the most part aligns with you and produces good chicken.
We saw a real example of corporate cancer with a Sprite ad this week, where they didn’t try to sell sprite at all, but encouraged degenerate lifestyles. An attempt to be woke to get attention — it worked.
Now how did Chik Fil-A get socially shamed? People stood in front of their stores and harassed them until it became a thing big enough for them to have to move.
What if a million Moms went to Sprite HQ and harassed them until they apologized for this ad? Citing that it’s NOT OKAY to sexualize advertisements to what amounts to a children’s drink. It’s pedophilia promotion at the end of the day.
You might get Sprite to move.
This is why so many hate me in science fiction and comic books. I’m pro-active. I use strategies that work to actually SHIFT the culture. The establishment hates it because I’m a real threat. The hucksters who want to sell outrage hate it because I’m effective and I point out how they aren’t culture warriors at all by my deeds.
It moves the needle. Think about what you do, who you follow, and the actions you take. Stop pining over Chik Fil-A and use the tactics that work.
Justified is all about facing hard realities and doing the difficult thing for what’s right in order to win victories for God. It’s not about being reactionary, Drin must be pro-active. Start reading now and get into the mindset that will help you win.
