David Hogg led a die in at Publix grocery stores. He insisted that Publix donate a million dollars to his cause and to rescind contributions to a pro-gun candidate or else he would have his followers stage die ins in their stores. Publix apparently backed down and stopped all political contributions. This was a huge miscalculation on Hogg’s part. Along with political contributions to a pro-gun candidate, Publix also cancelled future contributions to Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, the YWCA who supports LGBT causes, United Way chapters that have funded Planned Parenthood, as well as March of Dimes and Susan G. Koman — both of which continue to fund the controversial clinics. Liberals can’t be happy about this.
When David Hogg organized a die-in at a Publix supermarket over their donations to an NRA-supported candidate, he caused them to cancel all political donations — including to organizations that fund Planned Parenthood.
The level of liberal self own is truly awe-inspiring.
Publix issued a statement on Friday saying that it will “suspend corporate-funded political contributions as we reevaluate our giving processes.”
Twitter users quickly found a list of the causes that Publix had been supporting — and the Democratic Party can’t be happy about it.
Publix was contributing to the YMCA, who is a member of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, the YWCA who supports LGBT causes, United Way chapters that have funded Planned Parenthood, as well as March of Dimes and Susan G. Koman — both of which continue to fund the controversial clinics.
David, I’m very pleased you have stopped Publix donations going to Planned Parenthood. You did women and unborn babies a great service 🙏🏼 https://t.co/touXVy5lAq

Because David Hogg convinced Publix to pull political funding from an NRA supporting candidate, they also backed out of funding for same-sex marriage and abortion advocacy…

Will CNN now revoke Hogg’s membership card?
