Conservatives boycotted Nike because of, of course, Colin Kaepernick.

Conservatives literally destroy their own property when companies make decisions on where to advertise.

Lets not forget some age old conservative cancellations. Let's cancel disco music, it's scary because so many blacks and gays like it.

2. The fight against affordable health care and medicine

The destruction of Medicare
The attempts to destroy Social Security
The war against the US postal service....basically anything that burdens the common man that benefits the rich and powerful.

3. Dixie Chicks for saying in 2003 they were ashamed of Bush

4. Bookmarking. Great list. I'd forgotten about Hannity and the Keurigs
