In the race to achieve new levels of irony in making a political point, one anti-Israel protester scored a home run in a video posted online.
Flanked by protesters holding up an oversized banner that read “End US Funds to Israel” and “Free Palestine,” the megaphone-carrying activist seen in the video demanded the boycott of various companies that she read off from a list on her phone.
“We call on you to boycott Starbucks,” she said, pointing to a nearby shop.
McDonald’s, Disney, Nestle, Coca-Cola, Pizza Hut, Burger King, Pepsi, Papa John’s, Nike and Airbnb were part of the long list she read in the video posted to X by Newsmax reporter Addison Smith.
The twist? She appeared to be wearing Nike Air Force 1 shoes as she called for boycotts against the company.

“The jokes write themselves,” one X user commented.
“Also worth mentioning the Starbucks she pointed to was still completely packed after this,” Smith tweeted in a follow-up message.
Others on X had plenty to say about the head-shaking video,
It makes sense that she wouldn’t know what shoes she’s wearing. She doesn’t even know the history of the land of Israel!
Jews are the indigenous people of modern day Israel.

It’s becoming really repetitive and boring with these intellectual lightweights. One demonstration after another. Without ever achieving anything of course. One would wonder how they find the time, except one really doesn’t.
