Rally for Rush (Carbonite CEO tied to MoveOn.org: time for conservatives to fight blacklisting?)
The American Spectator ^ | March 5, 2012 | Jeffery Lord

Posted on 03/05/2012 3:25:36 AM PST by Cincinatus' Wife

................• Carbonite: OK. Now we'll talk Carbonite. And about Mr. McLaughlin of Sleep Number. And two of the co-founders of Legal Zoom.

Carbonite's statement was especially and curiously unctuous, its withdrawal of sponsorship coming as it did after Rush's apology. Here is Carbonite's CEO David Friend:

...Now. Carbonite really deserves some special attention......................

MoveOn.org, America Coming Together and Democracy for America, all three listed here as George Soros funded groups, the latter set up by Howard Dean. Texans for Truth also drew Mr. Friend's support. This group, according to Wikipedia, was set up by MoveOn.org spin-off Drive Democracy.org in 2004. Why? To… wait for it… challenge then-President Bush's service in the Texas National Guard. The precise same stunt for which CBS fired Dan Rather after documents were discovered to have been forged. The Bush-Cheney campaign said of Texans for Truth that it was "a smear group launching baseless attacks on behalf of John Kerry's campaign that will be rejected by the American people." They were. But that didn't quench Mr. Friend's affection for either the smear campaign or supporting leftist candidates such as Howard Dean, and John Kerry.

And get a load of this. Take a look right here at Ed "Laura Ingraham is a slut" Schultz's site for his radio show. Who is listed as a Schultz sponsor? That's right: Carbonite. Like Rush Limbaugh, Ed Schultz apologized. The difference? If Rush uses the word "slut" to illustrate the absurdity of the left-wing Sandra Fluke's views -- David Friend is outraged. But when Ed Schultz refers in hostile fashion out of the blue to conservative and Catholic Laura Ingraham as a "slut" -- hey, no big deal for Carbonite......

The big revelation here...

Why is EIB shilling for so many Liberal companies...?
So they can make bigger donations to MoveOn.com?

I think a lot folks are going to feel tricked...

You’d think there would be more of a “buy conservative” ethic...

Apparently EIB never vetted the sponsors before - or chose not to...Bidness is Bidness... but- come-on.org

We did as well and several of these businesses we use routinely. Never again! And Rush, I hope today you come out and say what you really meant to call her! I would place a tea order to hear it!

I emailed Carbonite last night cancelling my subscription. Anyone have a recommendation for a good Mac backup?

And my husband used to always send me Pro Flowers so I told him to never use them again and send an email to that effect. Frankly, I’m glad because other than getting flowers there when you ask, they stunk.

So liberals become his advertisers to pull their ads to control his mouth. Sounds about right - like whoever is fighting with millions upon millions, lying their soul away, for a $400,000 job is doing.

Control the masses to succumb to ‘our’ belief in play.

All good points, but how did our “OWN” Speaker Boehner respond? Once Boehner weighed in that gave everybody else the courage and power to condemn Rush. When one of your own stabs you in the back that emboldens your enemies as well. So we, in large measure, can thank Boehner for this!

Rush, I believe the loss of some of your yellow bellied sponsors is a good thing. Take it as a sign, to do the right thing. If you really believe in the conservative movement in this country... Then use your bully pulpit and start revealing the true the power in this country.

You know the truth.reveal to your trusting audience the unholy collaboration between the Dems And Repubs. Stop with the aiding and abetting.

Use Andrew's vision and your audience to reveal the truth before this next election is truly our last.

I sent Carbonite an email yesterday that I wouldn’t be renewing my subscription when it expires in a year, but maybe I should keep it... I’ve got 243GB backed up there...maybe they are losing money on me. :-)

I am planning on cutting my discretionary spending to the bone between now and election day. No need to encourage ABCBSNBCNN and the other MSM SOBs.

Bigger picture BUMP!

Absolutely. Blacklist not only Rush's loser advertisers but ALL obama supporters. I always give business to Pro-Flowers. Not any more. I am in the market for a new car after 10 years. And it won't be a GM or Chrysler, I can assure you. I also would urge people to cancel HBO and other obama-friendly cable stations. Boycott advertisers on Ellen's show and Modern Family. Two can play the same game and I, for one, am looking forward to it. Writing down names and crossing them off of my purchase list.
