These guys can’t be serious.
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know why. The vast majority of Americans don’t want politics involved in anything but … get this, and I know it sounds crazy … just politics! Not beer, not sports, not movies, not music, just politics. Like, seriously, what is so hard about that concept that people don’t get?
But of course, we have wonderful dinosaur media outlets like The Washington Post who have to spin the situation. We can’t have the simple truth — oh no, no, no — that would be too simple.
Instead, we get hilarious gems like this one (hey, at least it provides comedy):
Bud Light has been targeted by a recent boycott, but consumers might be moving away from the brand anyway amid stagnation for domestic beer in general. https://t.co/DUhhYGEUMm

“Consumers might be moving away from Bud Light because expanding the customer base for U.S. domestic beer continues to be a struggle for brewers,” read The Washington Post’s report which cited Dave Williams, vice president of analytics and insights at Bump Williams.
Yeah, okay. Is this really the narrative they’re going to push? Does WaPo really think people are going to believe that? (RELATED: Joe Biden Angers WNBA All-Star A’Ja Wilson After Snubbing Las Vegas Aces Championship)
Hint, Washington Post: They don’t.

A historic, never-seen-before drop in sales revenue and volume…
…But sure, it wasn’t backlash. People just don’t like beer anymore.

Keep the politics out of our beer-drinking … it’s that simple.
