The BP boycott

Various environmental groups are pushing for boycotts of BP and even bans on drilling in the Gulf of Mexico. The ban on drilling, especially in light of the recent disaster, might initially seem like a good idea. It is, however, merely another component of the left’s subversive strategy to undermine American strength. The idea of a boycott, on the other hand, has no rational defense. Punishing BP in order to exact some measure of revenge for the spill is a destructive and emotional response. A boycott of BP would simply undermine that company’s ability to fund the cleanup and payoff legal claims. Why would someone interested in reversing the damage caused by the spill weaken BP’s ability to do so? Who knows? It does not make any sense. In fact, it is almost as if these environmental groups are more concerned with their communist, anti-capitalist, agenda than the environment.
