Frankly, that whole “let’s all boycott Apple because NRA” is tremendously annoying because of the inherent stupidity demonstrated by those calling for it.

… because they oddly don’t call for a boycott of Twitter or Facebook, or of Google or the internet.

a) a petition to Apple asking for removal of NRA streaming channels, and NRA apps would actually bear fruit (not a stupid boycott), as Apple is more likely to see eye to eye with such a request.

b) the same streaming channel and app are available via Google’s Android and Google Play…. hmm, funny, no boycott called for those.

c) the NRA and NRATV have pages on Facebook, Twitter accounts and channels on YouTube – oddly enough, no boycott called for those.

Anyway, short primer :

– you call for a BOYCOTT of the actual NRA, or of string SUPPORTERS of the NRA.

– you make a request, via petition for example, of companies that are peripherally or unwittingly connected with NRA resources.

So far, every thread or person regurgitating this call for a boycott of just Apple has proven to be an utter idiot and Luddite (ie Wil Wheaton et al)
