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.

Place a big order at the drive through-
then, when you get to the window, hand them the crumpled up coupon explaining you don’t support those that support the liberals.
All fast food joints these days are way more expensive than they used to be. Anybody notice that?
Arbys has been going downhill for years and was sold in its entirety for $430 million to Roark Capital last year.
Glad to find this out. I had their product last week and now I say to heck with them. Screw you Arby’s their are plenty of other places to get crappy fast food.
There are only a handful of franchises in the area I live. The few times I have been at Arbys I found the roast beef way too soggy. It is very easy to avoid something that in essence is avoiding you as well.
That is a nice line.
Please reply to their email to let them know they are losing a customer over this. I just did.
Edit to #23, The sale price of Arbys was $130 Million cash and $190 million in debt.
Was in Arby’s once, a long, loooong time ago. Ordered a BBQ beef sandwich. Received a sliced roast beef sandwich and a PACKET of BBQ sauce.
Have not been back since.
My daughter was extra good one weekend and wanted Arby’s curly fries. So I dropped $30+ for a family of 6 for a greasy gut bomb where I could’ve spent half the price at Subway and had a lunch the next day. Yea, makes it even easier to avoid them now.
That’s because our fiat money is being devalued.
If you’re missing something, so am I. I wonder why they were dumb enough to pull this stunt? They have to know it will hurt them more than it will hurt Rush.
Without details this accusation is meaningless.
Stockholders should sue.
I never hear anything about Arbys. Now - my one memory - will be that I would rather go hungry.
Nice job - Arby’s management. They should be fired - for cause.
Is their extruded beef product really meat ?
Bad publicity is still publicity..... :o)
Always vote with your dollars !
Hope the Easter beer bunny is good to ya Laz.
No Arby for this family.
I’m gonna miss their curly fries...
It seems like most of the companies who announced an ad boycott were never sponsors.
