Boycott the Boycotters

Posted by Dave Blount at August 14, 2009 8:42 AM

Glenn Beck has been too candid about the issues facing our country for there not to be some very powerful people who want to shut him up, as confirmed at MarketWatch:

In what is shaping up to be one of the more effective boycott campaigns in years, advertisers are abandoning the "Glenn Beck" show on Fox News following the host's incendiary comments that President Barack Obama is a "racist" and has a "deep-seated hatred for white people."

The advertisers pulling out of Beck's show include Geico, which is owned by Warren Buffet's Berkshire Hathaway, Progressive Insurance, Sargento Cheese, and Procter & Gamble.

Zillionaire moonbat Warren Buffet was a prominent backer of the Obama campaign. The aptly named Progressive Insurance is owned by Peter Lewis, a George Soros wannabe and member of the elitist, ultra-left Shadow Party that is currently consolidating control of our country.

I doubt many viewers will miss the irritating commercials run by Geico and Progressive.

Get a load of the doublespeak from a Sargento spokeswoman:

"We market our products to people regardless of their political affiliations," she said. "Yet we do not want to be associated with hateful speech used by either liberal or conservative television hosts."

For Obama to rant in his bestselling books about how much he hates Caucasians isn't hateful speech. To point out that, like the fellow militant leftists he's always surrounded himself with, he doesn't like white people — that's hateful speech.

A little background on the engineers of the boycott:

Color of Change is using a 600,000-member electronic mailing list to urge people to sign a petition that is then forwarded to Beck's sponsors. The group was founded in the wake of the Hurricane Katrina disaster to promote "racial progress," said James Rucker, its executive director […who…] "absolutely expects" other advertisers to follow suit and drop out because the wave of defections "raises the stakes for them to stick around."

"Racial progress" is a euphemism for progressives' divide-and-conquer ethnic balkanization strategy.

More background on Color of Change: It was founded by Obama's Green Jobs Czar — who has spent at least $60 billion of our money but has yet to create a single "green job" — self-described communist and "rowdy black nationalist" Van Jones, who has terrorist connections and was arrested for participating in the Rodney King race riots. But no doubt pointing that out is hateful speech.

Beck is a natural starting point because of his outspokenness, but if they succeed in killing his show, they will move on to others, with the ultimate objective of silencing all dissent to Obamunism.
