What can 245 Million people do to to stop the madness?

August 15, 2009

Please take the time to send this on to your email list…this will required a true grassroots efforts if we are to make an impact and let these companies know we will not tolerate the right of free speech to muffled. Not by any organization. Not Move On, Not Color of Change. No one.

Do you ever wonder why boycotts are started against the voices that the left is most afraid of?

So, another group, with a singular goal, to rid America of free speech, “Color of Change” has begun a boycott of Glen Beck.

They are using the normal tactics. They issued statements to all of Glen Beck’s advertisers and demanded that they NOT advertise on Glen Beck’s show, OR ELSE…Or else what?

The threat is the usual one, blacks will not buy their products if they continue to advertise on Beck. Among the advertisers already bowing to the threats are Geico, owned by Warren Buffet’s Berkshire Hathaway, Procter & Gamble, Sargento Cheese, and Progressive Insurance.

As usual, these companies will not respond to request for comment but sent “Color Of Change” an email saying it had "instructed its ad-buying service to redistribute its inventory of rotational spots on [Fox] to their other network programs, exclusive of the Glenn Beck program."

P&G didn’t respond to a request for comment but one news report quoted a spokesperson as saying that "at times our ads are run by mistake on shows that they were not meant to" and that the company would "try to be more careful in the future (to avoid Beck).”

Color of Change is using a 600,000-member electronic mail list to urge people to sign a petition that is then forwarded to Beck’s sponsors. The group was founded in the wake of the Hurricane Katrina disaster to promote "racial progress" according to James Rucker, executive director. Rucker served as Director of Grassroots Mobilization for MoveOn Political Action and MoveOn Civic Action from the fall of 2003 through the summer of 2005.

"We have seen rhetoric that is destructive and divisive before, but taking a platform that is supposed to be for news and analysis and using it to stoke racial animosity just crossed the line," Rucker said. Rucker added that he "absolutely expects" other advertisers to follow suit and drop out because the wave of defections "raises the stakes for them to stick around."

Glenn Beck expresses his personal opinion on HIS talk show. Those views represent his own views…FREEDOM OF SPEECH FOLKS. He is guaranteed this right by the constitution.

So where do Americans draw the line on these boycotts? When does the majority of Americans – MAINSTREAM AMERICA – begin to punish the companies that follow bad advice from bad organization like “Color of Change”? Think about this:

There are 350 million people in America

40 Million are Black

45 Million are Hispanic

255 Million ARE NOT EITHER!!!

IF 255 MILLION PEOPLE STOP BUYING PRODUCTS FROM THE COMPANIES THAT BOYCOTT GLEN BECK…THEY WILL QUICKLY RECONSIDER THEIR POSITION ON HIS FREE SPEECH RIGHTS!

PROCTER AND GAMBLE PRODUCES A LOT OF PRODUCTS. THEY DO NOT MAKE A SINGLE PRODUCT THAT DOES NOT HAVE A QUALITY COMPETITOR. READ THE LABEL OF WHAT YOU PURCHASE…AND LEAVE THE P&G PRODUCT ON THE SHELF!!!

GIEGO MAKES WARREN BUFFET HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS IN PROFITS EVERY YEAR. IT IS ONE OF THE LARGEST INSURANCE COMPANYS. BUT IN SPITE OF THE CUTE COMMERICAL, ITS RATES ARE NO BETTER THAN PROGRESSIVE, STATE FARM OR ALL STATE.

You can speak loud and clear with your money. It will only take a few weeks of 255 million people sticking together and not buying their products and services – making a clear choice to say to these advertisers:

When you choose sides and choose against free speech and the constitution – you will lose our business and it will be hard for you to survive.

It is time for the majority in America to start sticking together and moving as one…

If you have ever wondered why we continue losing one freedom after another, how such small groups manage to change everything for all of us…wonder no more. It is simple – they stick together. They are organized. They never let up.

We are 255 million people strong. We have the power to control our destiny. It is within our power to stop the silliness the instant it starts.

We do not have to allow these small groups to push us around.

I urge you to do YOUR PART! Start today! Make a point to not purchase the products of these companies. Write a letter to these companies telling them your intentions. DO NOT ASSUME YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE INVOLVED – ONE PERSON MATTERS! THE SINGLE BIGGEST PROBLEM WITH ORGANIZATION IS PEOPLE THINKING – I DO NOT HAVE TO ACT – SOMEONE ELSE WILL…AND IN THE END – NO ONE DOES!

If they can flex their muscle and silence Glen Beck today – who will be silenced tomorrow?

Please urge everyone you know to help…

Real change is returning the power of congress to the people. Elect leaders that will support term limits now in the house and senate! Say no to career politicians and yes to citizen leaders.

Let every man, every corporation, and especially let every village, town, and city, every county and State, get out of debt and keep out of debt. It is the debtor that is ruined by hard times.
President Rutherford B. Hayes, 1822 – 1893
