Let's boycott Kentucky Bourbon until #MoscowMitch is gone

Lots of other distilled spirits come from Kentucky as well. Let's boycott it all. Check the distilled spirit you are picking up. If it has a Kentucky Distilling source, just Ditch it because of #MoscowMitch. Buy Canadian, Irish, Oregon or other whiskeys. There's plenty of choices. Watch out for vodkas and gins that come from Kentucky. There are other choices. New Amsterdam gin made in California is quite sufficient. There are others. No sorry feels for Kentucky. They have to all begin working to #Ditch #MoscowMitch. We will help them celebrate when they do with a toast of fine Kentucky Bourbon. #Boycott #KentuckyBourbon #KentuckySpirits #Ditch #MoscowMitch

Most of it is purchased by a relatively small sliver of the population.

SOMEBODY has to do SOMETHING, and the only thing that seems to have an affect is $$$.

Or we could just sit back and do nothing.

That would be best, since NO ONE should be hurt in any way to make any point.

I would have few options.

They are generally totally ineffective except a few targeted types like advertisers.

Plus, I live in Florida. At least monthly someone on DU gets all indignant at who horrible Florida residents are and encourages a tourist boycott. Never mind that the tourist areas of Florida are the Democratic areas of Florida. Not planning on doing the same to the good people of Kentucky.

Didn't some European countries put tariffs on Kentucky liquors as part of their response to Trump's tariffs.

Been boycotting all alcohol for 22 years, 9 months, and 3 weeks.

But I can promise not to buy any as gifts for others.
