Brian Sims Calls For Boycott Of Philly Brewery For Backing Trump

We have much love and respect for PA Rep. Brian Sims.

In the past, he's taught us fun and useful Philly slang. He's also appeared in a helpful video where he's cleared up political myths (and shut down some bs).

Now he's calling for the boycott of Philly gayborhood institution, Yuengling Brewery, for their support of GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump.

The Philadelphia Voice reports:

The owner of America’s oldest brewery has come out in support of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, and the company’s faithful drinkers aren’t too happy about it. Eric Trump, the nominee’s son, stopped at D. G. Yuengling & Son’s in Pottsville on Monday while campaigning on behalf of his father.

His message to the company? Hard-working family businesses like Yuengling, a fixture in Schuylkill County since the 1800s, would thrive under a President Trump, the Reading Eagle reported Tuesday. Yuengling’s response? “Our guys are behind your father,” 73-year-old owner Richard “Dick” Yuengling Jr. said, according to the newspaper. “We need him in there.”

On Facebook, Sims is asking Philly gay bars to participate in the boycott.

He writes:

Hey Woody's, Tabu Lounge & Sports BarKnock Restaurant and BarFrankie Bradley'sTavernOn CamacUbarThe Bike StopStir LoungeBoxers PHLRosewood, VOYEUR NIGHTCLUB PHILADELPHIA, ValanniStallions ClubThe Brownstone Lounge702 Lounge and Dirty Frank's, today it was disclosed that D.G. Yuengling & Son, Inc. and the Yuengling Brewery are using OUR dollars to support Donald J. Trump

That's right, one of the most prevelant brands in the Gayborhood and in LGBT bars across the Commonwealth, is using our own dollars to back a person and an ideology that says that our lives and our loves matter less. More to the point, those dollars are being used RIGHT NOW to give power to his bigotted messages attacking our black and brown neighbors and all of the women in our lives.

Our communities know a thing or two about voting with our dollars and I won't be using my hard-earned dollars to give power to any company or person who hates me, what about you?!?

This ridiculous article makes me want to drink a Yuengling Lager.  Hillary supports unregulated islamic immigration to the United States.  You people are out of your minds.

Shut up Simms.  You're a piece of shit just like the rest of the politicians.  Get over yourself.  Trump never said he'd punish anyone in the LGBT,  or the black or brown communities.  If anyone believes in your words, you're punishing their intellect.  Everyone in Philly who pays taxes should boycott paying them.  So you can't take yourself and your boy toy on vacations.  Get a pair of balls and clean the city up, lower the crime rate, get kids to have a decent education, and pretend you care about the LGBT community.  You're corrupt, a disgrace, and a disappointment to the LGBT community.
