Parkland gun control activists threw themselves on the floor of a Florida grocery store on Friday, screaming and yelling for customers to boycott the store because of political donations that it had made.
The “die-in” was organized by far-left activist and provocateur David Hogg, who has launched multiple boycotts aimed at those who support the NRA or who criticize him.
On Twitter, Hogg wrote: “.@Publix is a #NRASellOut In Parkland we will have a die in the Friday (the 25th) before memorial day weekend. Starting at 4pm for 12 min inside our 2 Publix stores. Just go an lie down starting at 4. Feel free to die in with us at as many other @Publix as possible.”
CBS News reported that Publix caved to the leftist pressure and intimidation tactics, announcing that they have decided to “suspend corporate-funded political contributions as we reevaluate our giving processes.”
“We regret that our contributions have led to a divide in our community,” Publix said in a statement to CBS News. “We did not intend to put our associates and the customers they serve in the middle of a political debate.”
