Have you ever joined in on a boycott?

These companies have joined in with the group to get companies to pull their ads from Fox and especially the Glenn Beck hour. Beck is finding and reporting on the truths of Obamas czars and it's getting on the nerves of some libs. I have written to each of the confirmed cancelers letting them know I will not be buying or doing business with them anymore.

Glenn Beck Cancellations - confirmed
Mens Warehouse
Proctor & Gamble
Progressive Insurance
S.C. Johnson
State Farm
Sargento Cheese

Glenn Beck Cancellations - unconfirmed
Best Buy
Campbell Soup
General Motors
Kraft Foods

  • No. I never have boycotted anything. Its just business. Its a sponsor. SO, they won't sponsor Beck because he did say some outrageous things. Maybe the sponsors have high standards and won't help justify Beck's opinions. But to each his own and it depends on your allegiances and your feelings about Beck. Its not worth it,IMO.

  • Interesting... I find it funny that to this day Biden has NEVER been scrutinized for saying, "you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy."~

    Now, imagine if Glenn Beck had said that.

  • Remember when Keith Olbermann made the racist "chicken and waffles comment"..
    Maybe the right should have created an uproar. The left sure won't rat out their own....
