DefendGlenn.com - New Anti-Boycott Website (lists advertisers)
DefendGlenn.com ^ | 08/14/2009 | DefendGlenn.com

Posted on 08/14/2009 1:13:20 PM PDT by montag813

Ok, folks, this has got to stop...

New Website online: DefendGlenn.com

Send this to all your friends. Contains all the advertisers for Glenn's FoxNews channel show (adding them all the time), so you can contact them and counter the left-wing nuts who are spending all day (what else do they have to do in their Mom's basement?) threatening to boycott their products (as if they can even afford most of them on their welfare checks).

DailyKos, the racist Socialist "Color of Change" and apparently SEIU and ACORN low-lifes are contacting these advertisers.

Lowdown: Here are the advertisers who have given notice that they will no longer advertise on Beck's show:

Progressive Auto Insurance
GEICO
State Farm
Sargento Cheese
Men's Wearhouse
S.C. Johnson
Procter & Gamble
Lawyers.com

LET'S SHOW THESE FOLKS WHO THE REAL MAJORITY IS. Glenn's ratings are more than all of his competitors combined (+400,000). Check out DefendGlenn.com right now and let's reverse this bullcrap (and leave a message for Glenn on their "wall" when you're done).

(Excerpt) Read more at defendglenn.com ...

They’re killin’ me! My car ins is with Gieco and it’s darn good. Now I’ve gotta dump them for someone else. On the plus side, I haven’t made the payment for the next six months yet.

Sargento makes the best reduced fat cheese. There’s no competition out there. Now I gotta eat fatty cheese. On the other hand, Tillamouk has been noticeably absent from my life since I lightened my diet, so I’ll make them a visit.

The really stupid thing about this is that the organizations complaining don’t even watch Glenn Beck.

Personally I can’t help but wonder if this goes back to the white house. Obozo has already seized control of some pretty big corporate players so a threat from him would probably carry some weight.

I'm in the same boat. I'm not going to dump them just yet but I am going to send them a hand-written letter expressing my displeasure with them.

Their reply (if any) will determine what I do next.

Please, also remember to call the LOCAL advertisers who run spots during the show (or during any of the conservative talkers on your station).

Let your local advertisers know you appreciate their support of talk radio. Use their business if you can.

If you have ANYTHING to advertise call your local station and contract for the GB time slot. You may also be able to just pay for a recorded spot - one a day for a week - depending on the station - fees will vary - recorded by you - to say stand up America and support Glen and support the advertisers who support him. The station should have a production department that will produce your spot.

Just some ideas and my two cents.

I haven’t tasted the low fat cheese, but Wal-Mart brand (Great Value) regular cheeses are comparable. I couldn’t tell the difference, besides the price.

Proctor & Gamble is a filthy company. I stopped buying their products (mostly Crest toothpaste and Tide) when they tried to destroy Dr. Laura's fledgling TV show years ago. Hideous company.

What amazes me is that these companies have NO FEAR of offending the average moderate-to-conservative citizen. No fear at all. They cater only to left-wingers. Probably because conservatives don't organize like the leftists. Maybe we will now.

fROM THE WEBSITE:

Boycott Leader “Color of Change” a Radical Group
Founder a self-described black “nationalist” and “Communist”; Links to terrorist

Van Jones, the radical founder of Color of Change Barack Obama’s “Green Jobs” czar (one of 42 extra-legal czars), and the leader of the attempted boycott against Glenn Beck, is a self-described “black nationalist” and “Communist”, who has ties to a former terrorist. Van Jones, founder of “Color of Change”, a black militant political activist group, worked as a co-founder and director of the Apollo Alliance, which Glenn Beck recently exposed for its subversive ties with radical left-wing groups. Van Jones worked at Apollo with Jeff Jones. Jones was a leading co-founder (along with Bill Ayers) of the terrorist group Weather Undergound , who spent time on the run from law enforcement agencies while his group carried out a series of bombings of U.S. government buildings. Van Jones’ group “Color of Change” began the boycott against Glenn Beck after Beck exposed the Apollo Group and Jones’ militant past.

My wife says she thinks Cabot is better. Also Sargentos uses natamycin. Cabot doesn't in their chunk cheese.

I just emailed all advertisers on the list to support Beck

Dear Sirs. I love my country, but it is under assault by left wing radicals (including president obama). Government THUGS are trying to silence Glenn Beck by targeting advertisers. I just wanted to let you know I support Glenn Beck 100% and will continue to support companies that support him. Companies that CAVE IN to groups (brown shirts) trying to silence Glenn Beck I will vigorously NOT support.

Thank you for your time,

Eric E Rumsey

If so, did they do a good job?

And while we’re at it, we need to be shopping at Whole Foods and buying their stock (NADAQ symbol WFMI).

Whole Foods chairman John Mackey is under fire for his excellent column in the Wall Street Journal earlier this week criticizing Obamacare and offering constructive suggestions: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970204251404574342170072865070.html

The organic nutjobs are boycotting Whole Foods and giving him heck. Give this man your support.

I just called my insurance agent Joey Strickland-State Farm Insurance that I and members of my family have been using for decades.

Joey is a Glenn Beck fan and knows exactly what's going on. He read me a corporate message sent to all agents stating that State Farm does not advertise on programs with political content. I told him what I thought of that and he said that he knew what it looks like.

He said he would relay my concerns to corporate PTB.

Joey said he'd see me at Jo Bonner's town hall meeting on Monday.

We are losing our country folks...Everyone Must Do Something Everyday.

What precludes other good companies from advertising on GB? They must be clamoring to advertise with a winner.

Perhaps these companies listed just wanted out of their contract because business was so poor anyway, and this is an easy out of any contracts?

Tillamook is great stuff, the cheese, ice cream, and butter. The company still belongs to a group of Tillamook County area dairy farmers, I believe.

Cheddar is the flagship product. I don't think it's particularly low fat, but I think any good cheeses are going to have that content specified in their traditional formulas (the “low fat” varieties are just reduced 20-25%, leaving plenty). Likewise sodium and just plain calories.

I probably eat too much of it.

One of my buddies used my pickup several years ago. He had Geico insurance and had a minor accident. I actually had it repaired by USAA, and they filed a lawsuit to get their money back. It took FOREVER to get them to pay for the damage. Geico sucks BIGTIME.

He looks like a slimy used car salesman who wears two Pinky Rings and a fake Rolex. And his 'cousin' Herb does all the financing.

I had a similar experience. I wouldn’t cancel GIECO because of this boycott but I WOULD cancel them because are a shady company. I had to fight my own insurance for the coverage I was paying for. Filing a claim with with is like pulling teeth.

I’ve had USAA - homeowners, car, etc., for years now. When other insurance companies call and say they can “save me ___ %”, I really enjoy telling them USAA is my insurance company.

Usually, all we hear is “Thanks.”

Sargento responded as such:

“We appreciate your sharing your concerns about our
advertising. Our organization remains true to its mid-western roots and
values. Some would say that means we’re conservative. In the end, we
hold true to our nation’s heritage that values free expression of
varying political opinions. We advertise on Fox News, however, we felt
Glenn Beck went too far when he suggested poisoning someone with whom he
disagrees. Rhetoric that reflects action that would result in the death
of someone is never acceptable to us. Therefore, we have advised our
advertising agency that they should reallocate our Fox News buy among
other Fox News programs.

Our wish overall is to move beyond the conversation about politics and
focus on our primary mission to bring consumers great cheese products.
We don’t want to be associated with inflammatory speech used by either
liberal or conservative talk show hosts. Again, thank you for taking
the time to share your views with us.”
