Now The Left Wants to Cancel Hyatt?

Some things are so predictable you could literally bet the farm on them, one being that the sun will rise in the east each morning.  Sadly, the left is becoming all too predictable in trying to cancel anyone or anything even remotely attached to conservatism.

Enter the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) held this past weekend.  It’s an annual meeting of conservative grassroots activists, leaders, and speakers.  This year’s event was moved from National Harbor, MD, just outside of Washington to Orlando, FL.  In reality, the move was the coup de grâce for the lockdown states still mired in misery and a win for Florida, which has balanced public health and economic concerns so very well throughout the whole pandemic.

Pulling off a big event like this requires a suitable venue with meeting space and room capacity and one that can handle large crowds.  The Hyatt Regency Orlando on International Drive met the challenge.  As an attendee and Florida resident, I spoke with hundreds of people at the event in my capacity working in political communications.  I asked as many people as I could what they thought of the hotel and having CPAC in Orlando.  It was unanimous.  People were thrilled with their rooms and the hotel’s many amenities.  Masks were required in public areas to keep people safe.  And of course, there are a plethora of restaurants and attractions just over a 3-iron from the property.

No matter.  The event had barely begun before the left started in on the stage’s shape as viewed from high above.  Supremacist they decried.  It’s a rune used by the Nazis, many said.  The voices became so pervasive that the head of the organization that puts on the conference felt compelled to address it.  “Stage design conspiracies are outrageous and slanderous.  We have a long-standing commitment to the Jewish community.  Cancel culture extremists must address antisemitism within their own ranks.  CPAC proudly stands with our Jewish allies, including those speaking from this stage,” said Matt Schlapp.

Interestingly, this same weekend, liberal comedian Bill Mahr used his show “Real Time” to take on his fellow “wokers” in a scathing monologue, saying a new stand your ground law is needed for cancel culture.  He noted, “when the woke mob comes after you for some ridiculous offense, you’ll stand your ground and stop apologizing because I can’t keep up anymore with who’s on the ‘s’ list.”  Mahr went through many examples, including getting rid of Lincoln in his state of Illinois.  He concluded with, “When what you’re doing sounds like an Onion headline, stop!”

But the cancel types led by many in Hollywood were already at work.  It wasn’t just conservatives in the crosshairs.  They’re going after Hyatt, calling for boycotts.  There’s now an ever-growing list of celebrities saying they won’t stay at any of the hotels in the chain again.  That’s countered by the Mike Huckabees (former Arkansas GOP governor) of the world: “I shall be giving Hyatt more of my business!  No corporation should be punished for selling their core product—refreshing to see them stand their ground.”

And stand their ground Hyatt has.  A Hyatt spokesperson told Fox Business, “We take pride in operating a highly inclusive environment, and we believe that the facilitation of gatherings is a central element of what we do as a hospitality company.”

It’s all so bizarre.  One, boycotts and bans often have the opposite effect.  Just look at Goya Foods.  Consider too that the best way to make a book a best seller is to ban it.  People want to know what they’re not supposed to see or do.  Two, it wasn’t that long ago when the left was the guardian of free speech, even extreme speech.  Indeed, the whole basis for the founding of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) in 1920 was to protect freedom of speech. They have successfully used the legal system to do so ever since.  And guess what?  The ACLU even backed conservatives like Oliver North and Rush Limbaugh when the left came after for them.  If nothing else, that is consistency. 

The left hasn’t thought through where this new, ugly wokism and canceling will end.  Should hotels hold no more conferences from any political group for fear someone might be offended?  Should we cancel our own friends and relatives if they gave money, supported, or even voted for someone we don’t like?  If only the liberal media mob would call out not just the silliness but the danger of it all.  Maybe then Hollywood, the driver of most of this, would stop.  Bill Mahr speaking out is a start.  Will others follow?

This is too funny!! Cancel the Hyatt’s owned by the Pritzker Group, as in the Democrat Governor of Illinois, JB Pritzker. If they’re going to pull this stuff they may as well cancel their own.

This is all what evangelical preachers have been preaching for years. We knew this was coming. I am still screaming over the illegal election and asking what in the United States of America happened. Are we no longer a country of law and order. I also keep hearing we will win in 22 and 24 and I have to say, “NO WE WON’T, UNLESS SOMETHING CHANGES.”
Why are we not supporting Mike Lindell and his fight against this illegal voting machine fraud. We are failing because we are honest and have integrity. We have to stand firm and tall and fight the left at all crossroads. The Totalitarian Fascist Government of Pelosi and Shuemmer and now biden/harris, are laughing at all of us. Actually thumbing their noses and crying na na na na na na.
We in this organization have to get the word out for all on the right to Stand in the Gap for our nation.

Nicely done Jeff ! You are so right, with the Dr Seuss and Mr Potato Head nonsense capped off with the cartoon character the Biden administration decided should be the head of health and human services, this world we live in does indeed look remarkably like an Onion headline.

This is a very serious time in our Country and no time for jokes. These Dems are serious and
they don’t want you to do or have a voice in anything. If they are successful in trying to cancel
anything and everything out that Republicans say or do, your Country is gone. Action has to be
taken before it is too late. It is about time the Republicans got some backbone to fight back.

Most of the boycotters are bots. They tried this crap on Rush Limbaugh. He had a forensic audit done and discovered that thousands of emails were coming from just a few people. Any of these clown companies that fall for this woke nonsense should be boycotted from us normal people and we should be LOUD about it!

As I’ve mentioned many times before when commenting, I live in sunny, Progressively Communist Democratic California. Recently I received a notice to serve on Jury Duty. At 73 and since i currently work 7 days a week, 8-9 hours a day, I asked to be excused. It has been denied so I have asked to serve anytime in November, December or January when I know I won’t be working. Little do they know what they will be getting. I speak my mind and plan to at every opportunity especially if I have to serve on a case involving any illegal immigrant. I will state that ANY person entering OUR country illegally certainly has NO RESPECT FOR OUR LAWS! Just being involved in another illegal activity proves they have NO RESPECT FOR OUR LAWS and therefore they are proving that there is NO UNREASONABLE DOUBT that they are GUILTY!!! … Can’t wait to voice this opinion to the other jurors. … Imagine how the Cancel Culture members heads are going to explode.
What fun!!! … Can’t wait!

I cannot believe that Hyatt is even an issue to discuss. This is the first I have heard of Hyatt bashing due to CPAC & just how many people really think this is an important issue facing America today? Just shows more of a divided nation.

Given the fact that the head of Hyatt Hotels has the last name of Pritzker, the hotel’s headquarters is in Chicago & the mayor of Chicago is a Pritzker is anyone surprised by this?

The Hyatt and its brand is where we normally stay when traveling. There are two in our family with special needs, I require life support equipment.
Hyatt always makes sure we have a special needs room that has wheelchair accessibility, and easy access in or out. They change our assigned room at check in to make things better for us.
The care and friendliness of the staff reminds me of the days when I used to travel during my job. Guests were treated like welcome family members or friends, with a professionalism naturally.

Other hotels say we will get a room, special needs, then we find it is in a dark corner and we need to carry our child in, collapse the wheelchair and then bring it in. Only works once, for one night, then the chain is used no more.

The last time I looked, Americans lived in a free country. You can say and do just about anything as long as you don’t physically harm anyone. To boycott legitimate businesses like Hyatt is just silly. The far left, unhinged cancel culture low-life folks have it all wrong. They are the ones who deserved to be canceled. To call out others for their own insecurities is just plain silly. They have no standing in this country….the just have diarrhea of the mouth and $hat for brains. Stand your ground, call them out, and humiliate them any way that you can.

Wait until Puerto Rico and D.C. enter into statehood. It will permanently tip the scales in Congress so that conservative thought and any associated common sense will be forever stamped out. Add in the millions of illegals to the list of Commie/Demo voters, and you can kiss any laws that make sense “adios,” and Congressional spending will go through the roof, thanks to Far Left majority votes in Congress being a “slam-dunk.” Freedoms—or what’s left of them—as we know them now will become a distant memory. We ain’t seen nuthin’ yet!

Let’s just cancel life altogether… it’s the only way people will ever stop complaining. But seriously, just look at them and laugh while shaking your head. Somewhere sometime they’ve got to run out of things to cancel. Or… at least run out of ideas.

Let’s see they tear down monuments (no investigation as to who did it despite videos and didn’t Russians do this?), they stop books from publication (Nazi’s burned books), people riot and burn buildings with out any arrests. So what is next, burn them out if they are meeting? Amazing!

We need to try to start yanking the chains of the left. I have been trying to tell the GOP that I am through with them for months and they still, despite my letters and emails. keep sending me requests of money. I have told them I will campaign to the candidates I support.

I’d be sorely tempted to want to cancel the LEFT WING IDIOTS in the news media … partly for wasting natural resources like ink and paper … and other reasons more more meaningful to the the health of our Constitutional government.

We must take the left and cancel culture seriously, we just can’t sit back and call them idiots.
We need to sue them at every instance, we need to follow them with camera drones, we need to boycott their companies/products, we need to cost them lots of money defending themselves, all
within the law. Every time a leftist pops up, sue them, everytime.

A bird’s eye A few of the stage turned upside down is in fact one version of a rune symbol. Nearly 100 years ago one branch of Hitler’s military used that symbol in a limited capacity. Boy, the liberals must think that the white supremacists who planted this subliminal message are geniuses!

The left has gone mad – they are acting in a ridiculous fashion. Why boycott the Hyatt because they held a rally for conservatives and also why take down statues of Lincoln who wrote the Emancipation Proclomation and why say that Dr. Seuss books are offensive. Thy all sound like mental cases to me. Everything to the democrats is racism and this is ludicrous. We must do what President Trump said in his message Sunday night – work hard to win the house and increase the majority in the senate in 2022 and take back the Presidency in 2024.

What is really ironic — even hilarious — is that Hyatt is owned by the Pritzker family. Died in the wool lefties. One served in Bam Boom Ba’s cabinet and the other is currently misgoverning the state of Illinois.

The left is consume their own just to make a point.

Donald Trump s first Presidential campaign rally in Phoenix. Donald Trump held his first campaign rally, since announcing his Republican candidacy for President, at the Phoenix Convention Center. The event was hosted by the Maricopa County Republican Party. Media outlets from all over the country converged in Phoenix to cover this event. Previously, Mr. Trump created a media firestorm with his comments about illegal immigration during his candidacy announcement. Thousands filled the north ballroom of the convention center to see Trump and hear him speak. The event was scheduled to be held at the Arizona Biltmore, but the requests for tickets were so great the event had to be moved to the larger venue. Opponents held a peaceful protest outside the center. Trump s slogan is Make America Great Again.
