Huge victory in Boston St. Patrick's Day Parade
MassResistance ^ | Mar 20, 2014

Posted on 03/21/2014 1:51:45 AM PDT by Ray76

These days there aren't too many big pro-family victories to celebrate. But Sunday's St. Patrick's Day Parade in South Boston was one of them!

It went wonderfully. The organizers stood up to the politicians and the rabid media who tried relentlessly to force them to include overt homosexual activist groups in their traditional Catholic, pro-family parade.

And in the end many others stood with them. Labor unions, small businesses, several politicians, and an almost endless procession of military, religious, school, and other groups proudly marched before huge, cheering crowds.

just remember... Sam Adams and Heineken pulled out in an effort to pressure the organizers.

screw them.

take a stand and strike back ... by cutting their market in half

stop buying their products and encourage all your friends to do the same until they issue a public apology

We’re planning our daughter’s wedding. I haven’t had a drink in over 35 years so it is hard to pick a good beer. I was told that Samuel Adams made several good beers. Don’t know if that’s true or not, but I do know that is definitely the brand that won’t be served.

We heard the other day that Guiness had also pulled out of the parade, but was not on the list. Anybody know, did they decide that profit was more important than faggotry and participate?

These business’s need to start fearing offending normal people rather than the perverts.

This may sound hammy, but I think St. Patrick himself would be very proud of the parade organizers who have honored him with their struggle to preserve and not defile his legacy.

Yeah, NO!
And neither do any of the mega-breweries (Bud, Miller, etc.). They all taste watered down. For good and great beer, look toward your local craft brewery...what beer should be.

Guinness pulled out because homoactivists threatened a boycott. Time to let them feel a backlash boycott. They chose a side.

Actions have consequences. Defund the Left.

It isn't like the activism ban is a new thing. Guinness has changed their policy in response to a threatened gaycott.

Now, right a letter to Sam Adams and Guiness consumer affairs and let them know why their beer won’t be served at your daughter’s wedding. Companies are quite sensitive to serious thought out expressions from consumers.

It will be a greater victory if we can get Guiness, Heineken and Sam Adams to reverse their stand on “gay” rights and agree to sponsor the parade next time around.

They need to feel the pain at the bar for the next year.

I won’t drink another pint of Guinness. I am even going so far as to cancel my planned brewry tour on my vacation to Ireland. I am only one person but I am sick and tired of being bullied around by progressives and the gaystapo.

I can't boycott Heinie, because I already don't drink their swill. Too bad about Sam Adams, though ... their product is pretty good. It used to be what I'd drink when I couldn't find a good, local microbrew. Now? They can shove it up their smelly ...

From the beer boycott, it also should extend to the other brands the parent companies own. It means no more Bushmill's or Schmirnoff for me either. And Jameson is held by the company that owns Absolut (with their "IN AN ABSOLUT WORLD" Mexican targeted ad dreaming of reconquista of the American southwest.

I suspect a lot of companies have done the same. Hey, it worked for Jessie & Al. IIRC Jessie got a lot of $$s, too. Not sure if the gays are getting $$s (outside of paid healthcare for “significant others”) or just the publicity and cowering to their demands.

Beer companies have been funding gay pride parades for decades.

This poster with corporate sponsorship was particularly offensive.

Guiness did indeed boycott the parade:

I would recommend looking at Sierra Nevada instead, or Killian’s red http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/george-killians-irish-red/2331/ or Abita https://abita.com/ . You might ask among the bride and groom’s friends for volunteers to sample the wares. I am sure they will be helpful.

For good and great beer, look toward your local craft brewery...what beer should be.

My state Colorado is blessed with numerous local craft breweries ... New Belgium Brewing in Fort Collins has a great IPA called Ranger and another named Fat Tire.

Too bad Bushmills and Jameson gold are two of my favorites. I never saw the absolut ad. They can kiss my arse. Never drank it, and certainly never will.

They pulled out because profit is more important. Ours has become the minority view, making it harder for us to exert the economic pressure to get companies to do the right thing.

Pyramid makes a great range of beers, from stout to blondes. They aren’t that expensive either.

Should be available nationally by now. Been around a while.

Pyramid is a NorthWest beer, but they’ve seemed to keep their heads down and just keep brewing.
