More Companies Pull Ads From Wonkette After Trig Palin Post

More companies have joined Papa Johns, Huggies and Vanguard in dropping ads from the liberal, pro-abortion blog Wonkette after it ran a crass post mocking Sarah Palin and her son trig, who has Down Syndrome.

I actually wrote a nasty email to Papa Johns over this and got a response. They were VERY quick to respond, and Vanguard heard from me too. Glad they went through with this.

Apparently, Simon and Schuster publishers have not.

Simon and Schuster publishers = Scumbag supporting publishers

curious if there will be any noticeable net increase in sales to those advertisers who pulled ads. That would be a pretty powerful example of the #’s that decent Amercians (coincidentally probably most likely conservative) bring to the table. I know we are doing Pappa Johns tonight and mentioning Wonkette ad pull.

The left has trashed Glenn Beck & co-opted advertisers to leave his show.
I am glad to see them get a taste of their own poison.

Wonkette has no boundaries. Satire is funny, mean spirited attacks on innocent children is despicable and intolerable, not to mention juvenile. I’m gratified to see that some companies have some standards.

It sounds like these ads were “pushed” in the same way Facebook ads work, where the advertisers bought “impressions” but had no direct control over which sites the ads appeared on.

Now they know and hopefully will make better choices. Guilt by association is still guilt.

Make no mistake.
Leftist women HATE Trig.

His existance is a reminder to them that they would have killed him if the choice were up to them, and they viscerally know this is evil, but know also that they would have done it anyway.

There was a time that writing something like this would never happen. In a civil society someone like the author would have been shunned and had the snot knocked out of him.

or “her”...as I understand it, the founder of “Wonkette” is one Ana Marie Cox. I’m still chauvinistic enough to think that women are supposed to be above this cesspool-level kind of filth. Guess not, on the Left at least.

So without sinking totally to her level, perhaps this time she’s caught her mammary gland in the wringer, and will be forced to deal with the consequences of having set her standards so low.

Bring back dueling and this kind of crap will end real quick. I will offer my services to Todd Palin as his second. I will arrange the dueling site and prepare the weapons. I would suggest edged weapons since this type of slur should be settled with a little wet work.

I believe in free speech 100%! However, with all of our freedoms come responsibility, and part of the responsibility is facing the consequences of your actions. Freedom does not mean a free for all and the excuses that follow.

I would LOVE to take this slob and have him READ ALOUD what he wrote to either Todd or Track and FACE THE CONSEQUENCES!!!

These are the same people who’s heads explode over the fact that Kobe Bryant utter the word “fag” during a basketball game. The same that wanted Chick-Fil-A boycotted because they provided chicken sandwiches to a group that had a seminar on marriage. They are alien to polite society.

I seldom buy pizza, due to lactose intollerence, but made the stop at Papa John’s last night.
When I told the manager, “why” I stopped, she lit up and said, “My brother has Down’s Syndrom”.

You make an erroneous assumption, they are not people, they are monsters.

Evil creatures who have actively chosen to embrace the darkest of their nature and revel in it.

They may manage to walk upright, but their true nature is evident once you listen to the vile things that spew from their snarling maws.

Whatever Sarah Palin is or is not, she has been a good parent to Trig. She and Tod decided to see him be born. She and Tod have shown him love since.

Whatever criticism Palin is deserving of on policy, that’s up to debate. There is no debate when it comes to this child and his right to live. There is no appropriate criticism of her for the decisions she has made with regard to Trig. He is alive and well, and Sarah and Tod are showing him affection and appropriate consideration.

If the woman left Trig at home with a nanny during her political trips, they would trash her for that. When she takes the child with her on those trips, they trash her for that. This is so transparent. This is so damning of the people who conduct themselves in this manner.

I am not a big Palin supporter politically. I will continue to be a very big supporter of her actions concerning Trig, as long as they continue to be positive. I admire that about her. Any caring loving individual with half a brain should.

The libs talk a good line when it comes to supporting children and their issues. Then you look at the fact that they are more than willing to terminate life at just about any stage prior to birth, and realize how fake they are when saying they support children.

Sarah Palin walks the walk on this issue. She advocates for life, and lives a life dedicated to that policy.

Those who trash her on this issue are disgusting.

I sent an email to Vanguard (where I keep my 401K), and whom I noticed had a banner ad on that site just when I clicked it to see for myself what was going on. Here is their reply (less than 24 hrs later):


Dear [lump]:

Thank you for bringing the add to my attention. I run our Retail Prospect
Marketing Team, which includes advertising and want to let you know that we
have blacklisted Wonkette from future advertising.

I am sure that you already have seen our reply on Twitter, but just wanted
to reiterate our thanks.

Best regards,
Mike Ma
Retail Marketing
