Skip to comments.Kabuki: Arby’s fakes a Rush Limbaugh advertising protest
Posted on 04/06/2012 8:27:13 AM PDT by B Knotts
Last night, I linked to the story about Arby’s blocking conservatives on Twitter for protesting the company’s protest of conservative talk show giant Rush Limbaugh.
Today, the Right Sphere notes that Arby’s president is a big Democrat donor.
Here’s the bottom line on this latest manufactured attempt by the Hush Rush mob to make it appear that he and the radio stations that carry his show are suffering economic harm because of Soros monkey-directed pressure.
It’s complete bull. Total Kabuki theater. Arby’s is not and has not ever been a national sponsor of Rush’s program. In the radio industry, advertisers can buy “Run of Schedule” — commercials that are to be aired during different times of the day for more than one day on local stations. Arby’s most likely told local stations not to run their ads during Rush’s show. That is not a cancellation of an ad buy; there’s no loss of money.
This is prog gesture politics to create the appearance of an anti-Rush advertising stampede. It’s astro-turfed by lying Media Matters hitmen.

is somebody keeping a list? I am ready to express my opinions via my wallet
OK, I’m getting confused.
If the DemonRAT party is the party of Labor and the “Little Guy”, then why, WHY are all these big corporations so sold out to the DemonRAT ideology that they would be willing to risk their business for it?
Is it just me?
Am I missing something?
Dang! I like Arby’s food. Well, no more.
I’m not sure how they stay in business. Everytime I drive past an Arby’s, the parking lot is empty. If they did advertise on Rush, they might actually drum up some customers.
Yeah. I like the French Dip. Oh, well.
Me too. Oh well, so much for the 2 for $4 Beef ‘n Cheddar coupons I just printed out yesterday.
I have no problem with Arby’s supporting Liberals, but they wont do it with my money.
I thought Arby’s was okay until I moved to the Northeast and had some from places like Hap’s, Kelly’s, and local places like Uncle Kosta’s. I’ll never step foot in an Arby’s again.
Good. Let the liberals ingest the crap sold by Arby’s as “food.” I wouldn’t feed it to my dog, let alone my family.

It is a combination of:
* The upper crust in management are so rich that they can indulge their fantasies of “helping” using other people’s money. When you are so rich that taxes are just a concept and not a hardship, you can afford to be as liberal as your evil little heart desires (think Soros).
* You think these guys aren’t buying access? If you pony up enough money to have dinner with barry and moochele, you can certainly mention to certain Senators as well as to him that certain legislation might be a bad ida and should never see the lgith of say. They are playing the same game as all large corporations, just backing a different ideological horse.
Yep. I don’t understand why companies don’t just stay out of these controversies. Just tell the activists to get stuffed. Take the position that you don’t take positions, and that advertising is done purely to reach customers, so you advertise where customers are.
arrrghhh. Arby’s was one of my favorite fast food restaurants. It will be a long while before I go back.
I will go get Hardy’s for lunch in a few minutes.
It’s not especially good, but a few things they had are OK once in a while, and the kids like it. But no more.
I have a bunch of coupons in my car. I will trash them this evening.
When I was young, I routinely at vast quantites of Polonium-209.
Of course, it had to be smothered in hot sauce.
That explains a lot!
My son worked over last summer at Arby’s...man the stories he came home with were enough to keep me out of that place w/o the lib rants!!!
