Posted on 10/16/2010 11:25:41 AM PDT by NRG1973
Dear Fox Advertiser,
I am writing to ask your company to take a simple step that may well save lives in the future. And it is not unimportant that taking this action will remove your company and its products from any connection to what could very likely be an unpleasant tragedy, should things remain as they are today. On behalf of my organization, and many others like it, I ask that you cease advertising on the Fox News Channel.
This is neither a hollow request, nor one rhetorically made. There is an urgency to it born of our own direct experience as the target of a would-be assassin inspired by Fox's Glenn Beck Show.
On July 19th of this year, I arrived at our San Francisco office to learn that a misguided person carrying numerous guns and body armor had been on his way to start a "revolution" by murdering my colleagues and me. The Oakland Police Department called to tell us that, following a 12 minute shootout with the California Highway Patrol, law enforcement officials arrested an assailant who had targeted the Tides Foundation, an organization which I founded and currently serve as CEO, and the ACLU for violence. To say we were "shocked" does not adequately describe our reaction. Imagine, for a moment, that you were us and, had it not been for a sharp eyed highway patrolman, a heavily armed man in full body armor would have made it to your office with the intent to kill you and your colleagues. His motive? Apparently, it was because the charitable, nonpartisan programs we run are deemed part of a conspiracy to undermine America and the capitalist system, which is hogwash.

Liberals in desperation mode.
I have a hard time believing that the police would make such a notification by phone.
How can Democrats stick with their communists party is beyond me.
I guess that I'm not cyber-hip. What does bttt mean?
CRY, CRY BABY
Dear Fox Advertiser,
Thank you for supporting the only national, non-left-wing-biased network. I intend to use your products and or services precisely because of this support.
Bring it on the bastards from the Tides Foundation. Come here and try this stuff in the UP of Michigan. you dorks wouldn’t last one day in the frozen confines of Michigan’;s Upper Peninsula. Lets face it in winter the temparature never rises above 20 degrees fahrenheit. and there are snowstorms that dump in excess of 36 inches.
Go after the advertisers some more and what will happen the people of America will not tolerate being bullied by the pissant and his little minions

Clearly, this deranged terrorist was inspired by NBC's "Green Week". In order to prevent any further bloodshed, all advertisers must immediately cease and desist advertising on NBC and its affiliated networks.

“Once again, a left wing organization is trying to intimidate...”
Like the DOJ?
Thanks for the explanation. I've seen that in posts but never as a reply to mine.
If you want to make a comment but discover you must first run to the restroom (head call), you announce your intentions with a bttt ("break to tee-tee") or if you're an Obama backer, you say btww ("break to wee-wee").
They tried this against Beck and it failed. Now they’re trying it against the whole FOX network. Can’t FOX and the Chamber of Commerce take legal action against these lies?
“are deemed part of a conspiracy to undermine America and the capitalist system”
If the shoe fits. . . .
A Bump To The Top does two things without your even having to make any comment. In addition to moving the article to the top of the "Recent Posts" page, doing so also puts the post onto your "Pings" page so that you can easily find the thread again.
