Calls for Boycott of Colorado over Banning Trump from 2024 Ballot
In a historic assault on voter rights and political abuse of the American constitution, the Democrat-affiliated Supreme Court of Colorado ruled to remove Donald Trump from the 2024 ballot. The ruling has sparked outrage among millions of conservatives, some of whom are asking for boycotting the state of Colorado altogether.
Prominent conservatives across the country reacted to the Colorado Supreme Court ruling with different suggestions and proposed strategies while sharing condemnation of the ruling. Tucker Carlson posted a video statement reminding that January 6 was not an insurrection and many unanswered questions remain about the incident. Calling the ruling “the actual end of democracy,” Tucker commented that this move shows what the media’s narrative of Trump-led insurrection was actually about.
Texas Lt. Governor Dan Patrick suggested on the Laura Ingraham show on Fox News that Joe Biden should be removed from the ballot in Texas for allowing an invasion of the country’s southern border. He added, however, that in Texas “we believe in Democracy.”
Many conservatives even called for boycotting the entire state of Colorado. The hashtag #BoycottColorado trended on Twitter/X on December 20.
MAGA conservative Sonja K posted a meme on Twitter calling for boycotting Colorado with the message: “No Trump? No Tourism.”
Another MAGA conservative Tara Jones wrote that she spent good money on her last two trips to Colorado but never again.
Jones’s sentiments about boycotting Colorado by cutting travel and tourism to the state were reflected in several postings on the right-wing social media site Gettr.
The controversial ruling of the Colorado Supreme Court also worked as a reminder of Joe Biden’s tell-tale press conference comments in November last year when he said he wants to make sure Trump never becomes president again even if he runs for the presidential office in 2024.
Segments of conservative media are also highlighting the fact that the Democratic Party is interfering with the 2024 election within the Democratic primary by not allowing Democrat challengers to Joe Biden. On Thursday (December 21), The Gateway Pundit reported that Democrats have tossed Marianne Williamson, Biden’s Democrat challenger, from the ballot in Massachusetts for the primary. On her Twitter/X page, Williamson condemned the move and called it a “flagrant violation of DNC rules and process.”
The Democratic Party is also not allowing any challengers to Biden in other states including Florida, Tennessee, North Carolina.
