New "Conservative Dad's Ultra Right" beer looks to become the next beverage to capitalize on the fallout of Bud Light's advertising campaign with transgender spokesperson Dylan Mulvaney.
Seth Weathers, CEO
of conservative lifestyle brand Freedom Speaks Up,
released an advertisement for his new conservative-themed beer that garnered
over a million views on Twitter in less than 24 hours.
“America’s been drinking beer
from a company that doesn’t even know which restroom to use,” said Weathers
over video clips of Mulvaney's Bud Light partnership.
“That’s why I created
Conservative Dad’s Ultra Right 100% Woke Free Beer," he adds. “As conservatives,
we’re constantly getting hit in the face, left and right, by the woke mind
virus. But the last place we want it is in our beer," Weathers declared
before throwing a baseball off-screen.
“If you know which bathroom to
use, you know what beer you should be drinking. Stop giving money to woke
corporations that hate our values." Weathers then lines up a can of Bud
Light on a baseball tee and smashes the can.
With a baseball bat pointed at
the camera, the ad finishes by saying, “And to the rest of you woke
corporations: stay the f*** away from our kids.”
Weathers responded to an online supporter regarding shipping costs, explaining that he can't sell in stores yet, but plans to.
"We can’t legally sell in
stores yet. When we do, that will greatly reduce our prices. Once we sell a lot
and can produce in mega batches it’ll also big a big price reduction But I
understand if people want to give their money to Walmart and Bud Light to trans
the kids instead," he replied.

Weathers appeared on Lindell TV to explain why he started the project.
"We fund the people who
then spend their money to sell propaganda to our children," Weathers said.
"Bud Light is literally spreading evil propaganda to our children. So, if
you want to stop doing that, stop buying from companies like that," he
candidate Vivek Ramaswamy attempted to capitalize on Bud Light's negative press
as well, selling his own koozies with the phrase "Bud Right" on them.
The highly publicized
controversy has already caused backlash from several musicians, such as Kid
Rock, who shot a case of Bud Light with a rifle.
