The GOP congressional candidate howls "Boycott Goal" hours after moaning about "Breaking Tradition".
The government may have my Goya beans, my Mr. Potato Head, my Dr. Don't take Seuss books or my AR-15.
Come and take it. This is America. I eat my green eggs and ham in my pickup truck for Christmas if I want.
Enough culture to break off.

For the non-tweeters:
"The government may have my Goya beans, my Mr. Potato Head, my Dr. Don't take Seuss books or my AR-15. Come and take it. This is America. I'll eat my green eggs and ham in my pickup truck for Christmas if I want. Enough to break off the culture. "
Yes, how dare a private company stop publishing some of the books in its catalog because it alone has determined that these books are race insensitive? And Mr. Potato Head? It was a shame when Joe Biden issued this order requiring his balls to be publicly demolished by a team from Clydesdales. Potatoes have testicles, Joe Biden! Stop trying to erase our potato toy heritage!
Of course, Norton canceled himself less than 24 hours later. In response to Target's announcement that its customers must continue to wear masks in states like Texas that have canceled their mask mandates, Norton wrote, "Boycott Target".
Because we must preserve and cherish Mr. Potato Head's sacred polymer gonades, but old people in Texas? Not as much.
Well, some people noticed Norton's bullshit demeanor and let him have it:
And Norton, who thought he might beat up his critics, immediately noticed the difference between a "boycott" and a "boycott".
Breaking culture means removing something from society, boycott is a personal choice. That is the difference. https://t.co/7UT0PiPAYG

NORTON: “Breaking off culture means removing something from society. Boycott is a personal choice. That is the difference. "
Uh, except that liberals boycotted Goya. And six Dr. Seuss books and "Mr." Potato Head was "canceled" by the companies that owned these properties, not the "government". In other words, they were concerned with free market capitalism. And damn it, nobody cancels Christmas. Every year through mid-November, fudge pours out of every opening like a holiday-themed Ebola monkey. I just wish someone could stop it. Just for a moment.
If that's all Republicans have, I'll be encouraged.
Joe Biden and the Democratic Party are in the process of sending Americans checks for $ 1,400 over the objections of pretty much all Republicans in Congress. Meanwhile, the same Republicans shout, "Let them eat potato heads."
I think we will win this round.
