Bud Light's Disastrous Pro-Trans Marketing Sparks Major Job Losses As Bottle-Suppliers Start Shutting Down
Bud Light's self-destruction after its botched TikTok promotion with clownish, male-to-female trans influencer Dylan Mulvaney, resulting in what Deutsche Bank analyst Mitch Collett recently said is a permanent loss of nearly 25% of its business, has forced one of its glass bottling producers to shut down plants.
The Ardagh Group, a glass bottle producer who contracts with Anheuser-Busch company, is preparing to close plants in North Carolina and Louisiana, according to new documents obtained by local news WRAL. The closures will result in the firing of 645 employees -- all because Bud Light's Harvard-educated marketing director thought it would be a great idea to celebrate Mulvaney's "365 Days of Girlhood."
And it's not just bottlers. Bud Light distributors are under severe distress because of crashing demand:
Bud Light tried a new ad mocking its customer base to reignite sales, but that failed miserably as Twitterverse roasted the brewer.
All told, hundreds of jobs, if not more, have been impacted by Bud Light's decision to allow a 'woke' Harvard-educated millennial to run the marketing department. She has also been fired.

our method: pseudonymous speech...
Anonymity is a shield from the tyranny of the majority. it thus exemplifies the purpose behind the bill of rights, and of the first amendment in particular: to protect unpopular individuals from retaliation-- and their ideas from suppression-- at the hand of an intolerant society.
The right to remain anonymous may be abused when it shields fraudulent conduct. but political speech by its nature will sometimes have unpalatable consequences, and, in general, our society accords greater weight to the value of free speech than to the dangers of its misuse.
Though often maligned (typically by those frustrated by an inability to engage in ad hominem attacks) anonymous speech has a long and storied history in the united states. used by the likes of mark twain (aka samuel langhorne clemens) to criticize common ignorance, and perhaps most famously by alexander hamilton, james madison and john jay (aka publius) to write the federalist papers, we think ourselves in good company in using one or another nom de plume. particularly in light of an emerging trend against vocalizing public dissent in the united states, we believe in the critical importance of anonymity and its role in dissident speech. like the economist magazine, we also believe that keeping authorship anonymous moves the focus of discussion to the content of speech and away from the speaker- as it should be. we believe not only that you should be comfortable with anonymous speech in such an environment, but that you should be suspicious of any speech that isn't.
