This question is much too vague to answer

I have been a boycotter most of my life. I stopped going to any movie produced by Hollywood in the '60s; refuse to hire illegal aliens or do business with anyone who does; and I routinely boycott companies that support liberals.

I might boycott a company under certain circumstances, but I would never do so because a politician, celebrity, or other public figure called for a boycott. I have a mind of my own and my own opinions. Those guide me far more than any public figure or politician ever could.

However, I've been known to "counter-protest" if I believe a business has been unfairly targeted (such as.when the left boycotted Chick Filet), I made a point of going three times a week.

This is not a yes or no question. It would depend on the political figure, the product, the backer, and the reason why.

I agree, ? is too vague.

SO, no matter what the issue is, I would take the time to follow up with doing my own research.

I would never boycott a company or product because a particular politician, celebrity or public figure asked me to do so. This is a common tactic of the Left to destroy, hurt, and intimidate conservatives whose views they disagree with. This demonstrates the Left’s now unprecedented level of hatred and INTOLERANCE towards people with whom they disagree. The Left now simply WILL NOT ALLOW conservatives to have their point of view. Conservatives must be destroyed. This is what liberals think about Chick-Fil-A restaurants, bakeries and other businesses that have owners with traditional conservative values who believe marriage is only between a man and a woman. It is the Left’s desire to hurt these conservatives as much as possible. They hurt conservative talk show host Glenn Beck by getting advertisers to stop advertising on his show, forcing Beck to shut down his program on FOX. This is mostly a nasty tactic of the hate-filled, intolerant Left.

Conservative politicians, celebrities and public figures (who I believe are much more tolerant of other people’s points of view) rarely go out and ask people to boycott companies or products owned by liberals. They have too much respect for freedom and free enterprise in this country.

Careful NFRW. You are close to insulting the intelligence of those you are encouraging to respond. Your question Implies taking someone's word without digging deeper for the truth as best one can determine it. No thinking person follows blindly. Healthy skepticism is appropriate. To echo others, this simplistically phrased question shouldn't have been asked.

It would depend on who is calling for the boycott and why? Ultimately I choose which companies I support or don't support.

I agree with most of the posters. I have my own mind and I do my research instead of "blindly" following any other person.

I have already boycotted a number of times; but always with good reason. My most recent boycott was Target for the bathroom issue in North Carolina. American Family Association is a group I support and have followed their lead in this area. I do my own research, though and make sure I am comfortable with my objections before I boycott. I believe this can be an effective way to get my message to companies.

It depends on what political or public figure is recommending a boycott, and what are their reasons. I have been making my own decisions about boycotting for years. I started with boycotting products "Made in China," long before that became a "public topic" I also made my own decision to start boycotting Starbucks. When I learned about Home Depot and Target I started boycotting them too. It's gotten to the point where I fear someone will ask me: "Do you have anywhere left to shop, or anything left to purchase?" Ha!

It depends on why they were calling for a boycott.

I being an independent thinker may choose on my own to not shop/purchase at a business. Boycotts in the past tried by conservatives and/or republicans overall end up being unsuccessful.

Need more information, but yes I can boycott with cause. Depends on political person or company. The point of origin is a factor. Somethings I don't want in my home per origin and I don't want to spend my money on.

I would Never Boycott a person's company just because they believe differently than me, the United States is a freedom Country we believe in prosperity not disparity. If I do not like something I just do not buy no matter what it is but to publicly boycott others nope we all have a choice we may not like movies or foods or certain nick nacks or even people then just don't buy or go there or hang out with those people. Now if you have a company who is a shell company laundering money or sex trafficking or breaking the law this is a different story.

I already boycott businesses that are acting against my faith and beliefs. I would not follow anyone without verifying their standards and constitutional accuracy.

Agree with most of the comments already posted. While I will take into consideration the opinions and recommendations of individuals I know and trust, I will ignore a "call to boycott" from others until I have done my own research. God gave me a brain and I try to use it.
