On Monday, student-turned activist and media darling David Hogg took a break from dictating travel plans for spring breakers to giving anti-gun leftists marching orders regarding what shipping company to use. And his followers — not surprisingly — seem willing to obey.

In another tweet, he added: “No matter who you are or what organization are I’d (sic) be a huge help if you changed your shipping service over to @USPS or @DHLUS or @UPS in support of us. In fact tweet out at companies that use only use @FedEx and demand action! Let’s get this done.”

Naturally, his followers blindly pledged their obedience.
Switched my business account to # UPS this morning. #NeverAgain

@FedExHelp just to let you know, i will not use your services, and up here in Canada, we are all hoping the damn gun laws change to the south.

Not everyone was impressed with Hogg’s investment advise, however.
You disgust me. You’re standing upon the graves of your piers to propel a narrative that is being used by CNN to create a emotion based argument rather than one that depends on FACTS

David your 15 minutes of fame are up.. Your narratives are unreasonable and not rationale. You have know entered the space of exploiting your fellow students. What are you going to say to fellow students tat disagree with you?

Your 10 seconds of fame is only one more bigger news story away from ending.

So you want to risk ruining the livelihood of FedEx employees to satisfy your own personal agenda?

FYI, #FedExHome and #FedExGround are sub contracted companies that run those routes not #FedEx and doing all of that hurts the small and local buisness owners that run them. The other FedEx entities as far as I know are actual FedEx.

Sorry man the stock is going up. Besides if everyone sells. (Which they are not) I'm just going to double down on the dip.
— Pied Piper (@youngpiedpiper) February 26, 2018
Some even said they would purchase FedEx stock simply because Hogg is targeting them.
Just purchased my @FedEx stocks! Thanks again!

Just purchased 300 shares! Thanks you Mr. Hoggwash for the tip!

As we’ve reported earlier, a number of companies have caved to pressure from radical anti-gun leftists and essentially declared war on millions of law-abiding members of the NRA, mistakenly thinking that will have an impact on gun crime.
But those companies are now facing a huge backlash from those who support freedom and the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.
FedEx, so far, has not caved to the anti-gunners’ demands.
According to Time:
Thus far, however, FedEx has not made any changes to its partnership with the NRA, making the shipping company one of the most notable companies not to do so. The carrier’s FedEx Advantage discount program is still available to members of the NRA Business Alliance, and the NRA still lists FedEx discounts among the benefits of joining its business association. The program provides a variety of discounts on FedEx services, ranging from 18% off on select FedEx Express international shipping to 26% off select FedEx Express shipping within the U.S.
MONEY reached out to FedEx for comment on its NRA discount program, and asked if it planned to cut ties or continue its business partnership with the NRA, but FedEx has not replied. We will update this story if and when FedEx responds or releases any statement on the subject.
But Hogg and his fellow anti-gunners have apparently decided that anyone who doesn’t march in lock step with them must be targeted for destruction.
Hogg, by the way, has become something of a messiah-figure to those on the left who want the Second Amendment repealed and all guns confiscated. At this point, we have to wonder: If he ordered his followers to jump off a building, would they blindly obey?
