A Boycott is not “ woke.” It is a tried and true Irish Strategy for pursuing Justice against Persecutors.
The word is named after Captain Charles Boycott, agent of an absentee landlord in Ireland, against whom the tactic was successfully employed after a suggestion by Irish nationalist leader Charles Stewart Parnell and his Irish Land League in 1880.
