Michelle Malkin: Anti-Prop. 8 Mob Watch: A new blacklist published

Anti-Prop. 8 Mob Watch: A new blacklist published By Michelle Malkin • November 29, 2008 10:40 AM

Angry gay activists in Austin, Texas, have published their own blacklist to punish supporters of California’s Proposition 8. The anti-Prop. 8 mob in Texas is targeting entire businesses over private individual donations. The insane rage rages on:

Gay marriage activists who lost at the ballot box in California are now lashing out at businesses that supported the ban — and their anger reaches way beyond the borders of Golden State.

In Austin, a gay community Web site has published an “Austin Anti-Gay Blacklist” that encourages consumers not to spend money at companies that financially supported California’s recent Proposition 8 ballot initiative that rescinded gays’ right to marry inside the state.

…According to figures from the California Secretary of State’s Office — which requires campaign donors to list their place of residence, their employer and their occupations — more than 750 Texans donated tens of thousands of dollars on either side of the campaign. One of the biggest Texas donations was $50,000 to a Yes on 8 group that apparently came from the president of a Midland oil company.

About 115 Austinites gave about $180,000 — most in increments of $100 — to fund both sides of the campaign. About 20 of the Austin contributors supported the gay marriage ban; the rest opposed it. Computer giant Apple Inc. is listed as the biggest donor from Austin, with a $100,000 donation in opposition to the measure.

Reminds me of all those emails I get telling me to boycott McDonalds or some other business because they support civil unions or something like that. Bottom line, no one really cares that much. If they did, then only libs would be buying Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. That’s not the case. Not an ice cream fan, but I wouldn’t rule out B&J because of their support for whatever.

Yes, but we cannot speak of Hamas contributions to the Marxist Messiah, that would be so “non-PC” to adhere to the law.

My they are most intolerant of differing views.

Can't we all just get along.

Although it is most peculiar that the ALT-Life style demand tolerance, yet they don't practice it.

In an alternate universe they would be hypocrites.

Makes me wish I had donated, so I could be on their list. I would wear it with pride.

I've always wondered why they are called "gay" when they are always so unhappy?

Well, how happy would you be if you had a **** stuck in your, oh, never mind.

Well the Corn-holers have a kernel stuck in their craw.

They lost its really that simple. Their behavior has essentially killed any chance of winning on a ballot, ever.

I really don’t understand what is the huge fixation on having your marriage recognized by the government. Love who you love and to hell with the rest.

To me, it makes a huge difference if it is the honchos of a company (Bill Gates, Jobs, etc) doing the donating; or if it is the company making corporate donations.

Even more so if they spell out on their packaging that X % of the price of the product is going to be donated to a particular cause.

When they make an explicit statement that I’m supporting something with my purchase, then it better be something I really support, or I’ll find another brand.

Too many times though, the nebulous claims in those emails is a tenuous linkage at best, and a compliance with law at worst...if not made up all together.

A case in point had to do with bell ringers, that turned out to not be the store, which was just the bearer of bad news to them; but was the decree of their land lord, the mall management.

I love my ice cream, but not with a topping of rotten politics. If I need a premium ice cream, I make it; otherwise, I make do with less expensive brands sans unwanted baggage.

I found this part fascinating:

“Blacklisted” by the gay rights Web site are ... even the Los Angeles Dodgers. Former Dodgers infielder and Austin resident Jeff Kent gave $15,000 to the Yes on 8 campaign.

So they will even blacklist if a known FORMER employee donated.

Wonder how may of my former Liberal employers are still in business, just in case this comes up for a vote again....

The loss of 2% in their business will not hurt them.

The gain in knowing that using those businesses one wouldn’t have to be in syphilis or aids infected areas is worth a lot.

The connections are rather tenuous but they are free to organize a boycott of companies that supported Prop 8 just as are conservatives who will boycott companies the opposed Prop 8.

So where is the list? Let’s support the businesses and people who were against gay marriage.

This is like the “buy blue” campaign put out by the Socialists during the Bush years. Pissed off ‘rats decided to start to “buy blue” and support only companies that gave to democrats. Hell, I used it to find companies they HATED...and I went to them. :)

I think that site is gone now, but if the lunatics want to do the research, we should let them—and then turn it on ‘em. BWA HA HA HA HA HAHA HAHA HA HAHAHA

Blacklisting individuals (names, addresses, phone numbers) for signing a petition to get gay marriage on the Massachusetts ballot a couple of years ago by a guy in Newburyport, MA. Bill Galvin, Secretary of State, gave the maggot the information.

Shortly after, gays started moving into the neighborhoods (even across the street) from people who signed the petition.

This activity was not a coincidence. They moved into traditional family neighborhoods.

And, after talking to the guy, he revealed that the biggest deal about gay marriage was to get churches to accept and marry gays ... no kidding!

Four gay men sat in my Mom's Catholic church with their arms around each other for effect during the Mass right after the judges ok'd gay marriage in MA.

Their true agenda is activity against ALL churches.

The left is full of anger, hate and intolerance. It has driven them mad. That’s why I say that liberalism is a progressive mental disease.

This will come back to haunt future elections.

All donors will have to take a good look at donating in the future with consideration of what may happen should they turn up on a list of donors on a “hot” item. Recriminations will have to be weighed on all donations. What a shame.

It’s a form of terrorism.

I tend to agree, but the harassing at business locations has to stop. The folks who bellyache about the threatened boycotts miss the point that this is a golden opportunity to reveal WHY these degenerates are boycotting them - to push the homosexual agenda. And then, on the flip side, to re-state that they are firmly on the side of defending traditional marriage and will remain so. Such a counter tactic will work.

It looks like you've gotten your definitions mixed up. Terrorism is taking hostages, blowing up buildings, and shooting people in the street. Freedom of speech (inlucing boycotts) and Freedom of assembly (including organizing peaceful protests) are guaranteed us by the Bill of Rights.

Two can play the same game. All of us “heterosexuals” just need to black list and boycott all businesses own and operated by homosexuals. Since we're the majority, seems it would be a small span of time we would put them out of business. Remember, we have a voice and cannot be intimidated by a few.

Technically, I'll agree with you. However, posting a private person's (note I'm not talking about a business) political donating history for the express purpose to harm them financially, to me, is a form of terrorism. Imagine losing your job just because you made a donation.

A Truro Fireman was publicly fired at a town meeting for signing the petition to put the marriage question on the ballot. He signed it at church. I’m surprised he wasn’t compelled to name any other public employees who also attend his church and didn’t sign the petition, but should be brought in for questioning anyway.

How can you tell if a business is owned by Gays unless they fly the seperatist Rainbow Flag or are flamboyant? It’s not like they are Black or anything. Ah HA!

Imagine losing your job because you're gay. Or because you're a Christian. No one ever said it was *easy* to do the right thing. No one ever said it was *safe*. In this life, you either stand up for who you are and what you believe or. . . you don't.

Boycotting can be a two way street. In this case, it definately needs to be. Fight fire with fire, Texans!

My comment had nothing to do with anyone standing up for their beliefs or “doing the right thing”.

My comment was regarding the backlash that will come with this kind of exposure. It will surely put a damper (FOR SOME PEOPLE)on donating to anything the least bit controversial in the future. I think ALL controversial issues will be affected, pro and con, because, of course, it works both ways.

For example: I have, for a long time, been avoiding using Google because of their leftist leaning.

Like I said, exposing a donation list works both ways.

My only point was that the reaction to Prop 8 donating will make many people think long and hard about donations in the future...to anything.
