What made anti-gun bullies decide it would be a great idea to fall on the floor of a Publix grocery store and yell for customers to boycott? The reason they want a boycott is because they object to political donations the grocery chain made in support of a political candidate that supports the NRA.
A Coral Springs, Florida Publix was the sight of the “die-in” that Parkland’s David Hogg orchestrated with other anti-gun activists.
THE BULLYING STARTED WITH “EARLY PREPS” FOR THE DIE-IN:

It figures that activist David Hogg was the organizer of this “die-in”.

THEY WERE MET WITH NRA SUPPORTERS:

“We regret that our contributions have led to a divide in our community,” Publix said in a statement to CBS News. “We did not intend to put our associates and the customers they serve in the middle of a political debate.”
