Jon Stewart’s rally raises questions about comedian’s role (Coca-Cola sponsors HuffPo buses)
Yahoo News ^ | 10/29/10 | Michael Calderone

Posted on 10/29/2010 11:51:08 AM PDT by jimbo123

Jon Stewart and Glenn Beck have a few things in common. The liberal and conservative cable hosts each described their respective rallies on the National Mall—whether to "restore honor" or "restore sanity"—as nonpolitical events. Neither walks in lockstep with Democrats or Republicans. And both often claim to simply be entertainers, while at the same time never shying away from weighty subjects like the economy and terrorism.

-snip-

Now the Huffington Post has lined up 212 buses leaving from the Mets Citi Field at 6 a.m. Saturday. (The buses will be equipped with snacks and drinks donated by Pom Wonderful, Stonyfield Yogurt and Coca-Cola.)

Call Coke and let them how you feel about their support of this leftist pre-election rally.

Pom Wonderful, Stonyfield Yogurt and Coca-Cola.

All of which will be taxed or banned by food police in the next two years if Republicans don't take back the House.

“Pom Wonderful, Stonyfield Yogurt and Coca-Cola”

I have no idea what Pom Wonderful is, but I’ll have no more Stonyfield yogurt nor Coca-Cola.

WTFcNow their last rally was a flop and so they try again for another flop. LOL

So now the huff post gets with massive corporations and then the next day they will say these same companies are in bed with the GOP.
Hey FOX how about covering this and reporting this crap .

Also what is with the left and their endless supply of freebies, free food, free drinks, free travel, free shirts, free signs?
Can’t these people actually figure out what to say, how to get there etc?
NO COURSE THEY CAN’T

*** Did they do the same for the Beck rally? ***

Surely you jest. But, here’s a chance to dish back some of the left’s tactics - boycott these businesses and their products. I don’t mean organized boycotts, just personal preferences. Tell your friends.

I’ve been using my money as a way of protesting for many years. I wish more conservatives would do the same.

I’m switching to Pepsi...screw Jon Stewart...the only reason we bother with yuck-yuck funnyman is because he draws a million or two idiots and he’s on a crusade against Beck. I heard government employees are also going to stage a “Government Doesn’t Suck” rally..

I hope everyone on here is calling too instead of just reading and then thinking others will do their calling for them.

My late father would not let us buy Coke when we were kids back in the sixties. He always told us they were a left-wing company. Things haven’t changed much.

You taught us well Dad!

I have the feeling that not much needs to be done about Stewboy’s rally other than to let it play out as it will.

Let’s see what the grounds look like afterwards, and let’s see what they handle the lack of porta-potties.

Is RC still around?? Can’t find it around here anymore. I laughed when you said ‘cheaper’. I remember when my husband and I were just married and we didn’t have a pot to ... (well you know) in and RC was so freaking cheap (seems like 1.50 for a 6 pack of 12 oz bottles and it was good. You sure brought back memories! lol

Fox News won't report this. They wouldn't want to lose Coke as an advertiser.

Pepsi also went over to the dark side.

leaving from the Mets Citi Field at 6 a.m.

Most won't be up by 6 a.m.

I think it's appropriate that they're providing another free ride and meal to the entitled free-loaders.

That Arrianna and Oprah are providing freebies just proves they know thier base.

I hope they are successful in restoring some sanity to these people...assuming they were ever sane.

We were too poor to buy Coke. But when we did get a soft drink, it was usually orange or grape Nehi. Good stuff. I may just start drinking Chrystal Light. Its healthier. I have 7 bottles of Coke left of an 8 pack. Any suggestions about what to do with them? LOL

she either played dumb or is clueless.
I’ve just told her that I and my family will be banning their product, that a e-mail has gone viral about this and that she will be getting many calls telling her that a boycott will be happening.

she said she will pass my comments on but did seem concerned.

Hope all of you have called too instead of just thinking others will do the calling because you can bet your house that the left are calling there too.

It’s high time we did what the left has been doing for years and that is getting off asses and making calls.
