BAM! Guy Benson takes United Airlines to the WOODSHED over caving to NRA boycott bunch

Among the businesses caving to the #BoycottNRA pressure is United Airlines:

United is notifying the NRA that we will no longer offer a discounted rate to their annual meeting and we are asking that the NRA remove our information from their website.

— United Airlines (@united) February 24, 2018

The world is certainly now a safer place. *Eye roll*

Guy Benson demolished United for giving in to the #BoycottNRA movement:

Hey @united, I’m an extremely loyal 1k customer. You’ve now severed ties w/ the NRA at the urging of an online mob, yet you maintain ties with Planned Parenthood, the most prolific ender of children’s lives in America, by far. Are you actively trying to chase away my business? https://t.co/eArS3fiF2c

Ouch! Benson continued:

Here’s the thing: I’m not even an NRA member or a guns person. But if a company that takes lots of my $ chooses to signal & preen in the culture war & make clear that it doesn’t care about alienating me, I need to rethink my business w/ them. @united

I *hate* the politicization of everything & usually eschew boycotts. I honestly don’t know what to do bc I don’t want to join/escalate the outrage wars. But I also worry about sending a signal to corporate America that caving to the organized Left has no consequences. @united

— Guy Benson (@guypbenson) February 24, 2018

So I guess I’m going to just sit here and wait to see if @AmericanAir joins the culture war pile-on & then reevaluate my decades-long relationship with @United. I don’t want flying to feel like a political statement. United has put me in a gross spot & I resent it.

After your beatdown is over, United, please return your tray tables to their original upright and locked positions.

I don’t understand putting blame on NRA members who had absolutely nothing to do with this tragedy, it’s crazy.

@United, Check out this thread. You have irritated a loyal customer by overreacting to screaming idiots. Stop playing stupid culture wars games. https://t.co/O05XUYr0Ep
