Miller Moonbattery

Remember the irritating Miller Beer commercial that ran last Christmas, with the house all lit up in gaudy flashing lights, prominently featuring a peace sign? Apparently that is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Miller's moonbattery. This formerly American (now South African) brewing company spent $30,000 to sponsor the ongoing four-day rally against U.S. sovereignty on behalf of illegal immigrants in Chicago.

Next time, reach for Budweiser.

Genuinely daft.

well, if it comes down to it, should we support people who support gays? or support people who put up rally's to support immigrants that is making our nation less of a nation?

I'd say I'd support none, but that's me

Support your local micro-brewery instead.

The way this thread is going I'm afraid we'll learn that Coors is funding flight attendant school scholarships for gay Taliban jihadists to secure student visas.

Once Coors is out, what does that leave, Corona? Oh, that would be a legal import from Mexico and I bet Miller wouldn't like that.

I go for stout myself. That's real beer.
Most beer is insipid like the people who brew
it and the politics they espouse.

Archonix - if only it were available the world over.

I thought you'd be interested in Miller's official position on this topic.

Miller Brewing Company has never supported illegal immigration and we have always supported the full enforcement of current U.S. laws.

Miller did not sponsor the Labor Day immigration march held in Chicago.

Going forward, Miller will closely review all requests for support from community and charitable organizations to ensure that we are not indirectly funding or associating our name with advocacy efforts on the immigration issue.

We plan to stick to the business of brewing, marketing and selling great beer.
