“But first, a word from our sponsors over at Birch Gold,” said Ben Shapiro— probably.
Listeners of Ben’s show know Birch Gold is a sponsor, just like we know his wife is a doctor. Crowder listeners know he wants us to “try the Walther,” and we, of course, know that ever-glorious Chick-fil-A is a strong supporter of Christianity. However, there are many more businesses that support conservatives that don’t get as much attention. If you’re looking to support them with your money, check these out:
This pro-America, pro-veteran, pro-gun coffee company offers a wide range of coffee products, and each one screams well-roasted, red-blooded patriotism. Their mission statement makes clear that, “Black Rifle Coffee Company serves coffee and culture to the people who love America.”
Fifth-generation owner Dick Yuengling came under fire after he endorsed then-candidate Trump and gave Eric Trump a tour of the Pennsylvania brewery. Leftist Twitter called for a boycott lasted about a day. Then they forgot, and Yuengling got a tax cut. Kavanaugh would drink to that.
This manufacturer of various cases and coolers is not only known for its quality products and outstanding customer service, but also for its support of law enforcement. They make great flashlights and are the choice of several police departments across the country.
In addition to supporting law enforcement, Pelican stood strong with the NRA even as sponsors came under pressure from gun control activists after the Parkland shooting. While their rival Yeti wavered, Pelican announced it would make a $10 NRA donation and give away a free tumbler with each cooler purchase.
As one of the only shows portraying a traditional, conservative, Christian family, Duck Dynasty put Duck Commander on the map. Phil, the family patriarch, endorsed and campaigned for Ted Cruz, while his son and the CEO of the company, Willie, did the same for Donald Trump. They are an altogether wonderful family and stalwarts of traditional American values. Their books are also incredibly funny and short, easy reads.
If you have any interest in firearm optics, you know Trijicon. They make some of the best civilian products in the business and supply the military. In addition to pro-military and pro-gun stances, they joined Hobby Lobby’s suit challenging Obama’s ACA contraception coverage mandate.
They engrave both their civilian and military products with Bible verses, a practice that drew criticism from anti-Christian groups criticized this practice. While Trijicon no longer engraves Bible verses on the products they supply the government, they still do on their consumer products. Their morality statement says, “We believe that America is great when its people are good. This goodness has been based on Biblical standards throughout our history, and we will strive to follow those morals.” It’s hard to sum up a positive conservative message better than that.
In-N-Out may not be Chick-Fil-A, but it is a better-than-most fast-food restaurants with Christian values. In addition to printing Bible verses on their wrappers and cups, In-N-Out has donated thousands to the California GOP, which recently prompted the left to call for another boycott. They will boycott anything these days.
You know it’s serious if they close their doors. It’s the after-bar, 3:00am lifesaver. The place that is only good when you need it to be. Yes, the beloved Waffle House.
Waffle House is one of the lesser-known “big, bad food companies” that Salon labeled as “radical right-wing.” Waffle House has a long history of contributing to GOP and conservative PACs. From saving the hungover to bankrolling the GOP, Waffle House is a true national treasure.
MyPillow inventor Mike Lindell is a big-time Trump supporter who has endorsed GOP candidates in his “home state of Minnesota,” which you’ve no doubt heard him reference in his commercials. Recently, Lindell attended a Trump rally, during which the President told the crowd that he and the First Lady sleep on MyPillows. Lindell was subsequently, of course, subjected to a boycott— but his legendary mustache and conservative values pulled him through.
MidwayUSA is the one-stop-shop for gun owners. They sell everything one needs, including the guns themselves. A gun company almost has to support Republicans nowadays, otherwise they’d be voting to put themselves out of business.
Of course Bass Pro made the list. Bass Pro is more than just a store to people in the South; it’s a playground. You can get all your hunting and fishing gear while browsing guns, trying on flannel, and looking at boats and ATVs you know you can’t afford (but enjoy fantasizing about driving anyway). Then, of course, there’s the taxidermy and giant fish tanks.
In addition to being awesome, Bass Pro Shops is a huge GOP donor and NRA supporter.
