Conservative Consumers: Stand Your Ground


Pages: 1 2

The group has repeatedly fought common-sense efforts to rein in voter fraud. Unsurprisingly, Robinson is close to the community organizer in chief’s administration. While media director at gay rights group GLAAD, Robinson traveled to Serbia in 2010 to officially represent the U.S. at a gay pride festival. He was invited by the Obama State Department, which sponsored the trip.

Robinson claims that his group has “more than 800,000 members” and “is the nation’s largest online civil rights group.” The numbers, however, don’t add up. The Color of Change Twitter account has fewer than 14,600 followers. Robinson himself, acclaimed by leftists as a new media guru, has a measly 1,400 followers after three years on the premiere social networking platform.

But the foot soldiers of radical organizer Saul Alinsky know how to conjure up facades and false narratives. Over the past several weeks, Robinson has released a series of press releases claiming mass victories in the Color of Change campaign to boycott ALEC. The bulletins are being dutifully regurgitated by sympathetic journalists such as National Public Radio’s Peter Overby — a former staffer at the anti-ALEC group Common Cause, a fact that he failed to disclose to radio listeners in at least two recent hit pieces on ALEC.

Color of Change’s corporate appeasers include McDonald’s, Wendy’s, Mars Inc., Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, Kraft Foods, Intuit, Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association, Reed Elsevier (owner of LexisNexis), American Traffic Solutions and Arizona Public Service. This week, Robinson also claimed that Yum Brands and Procter and Gamble had dropped their memberships as a result of “hundreds” of Color of Change phone calls.

On Tuesday, I called Procter and Gamble and asked them how many phone calls they received. Company spokeswoman Christine Wever refused to answer. I asked whether the company had met at any time over the past year with Color of Change or any other protest group regarding their specific complaints about ALEC. Wever refused to answer.

I also called the media office at Yum Brands several times with the same questions. No response by end of business Tuesday.

It’s not enough for conservative consumers to avoid cowardly businesses that cave to Van Jones and company. Beating back the anti-ALEC mob means getting ahead of them. Color of Change and its “hundreds” of callers are now pressuring State Farm and Johnson and Johnson to join the spineless herd and cut ties to ALEC.

I’ll say it again: Silence is complicity. Speak now or surrender your ground.

    This article, a blatant defense of Paul Weyrich, aka Kane from Poltergeist II and the grandfather of Obamacare, is also blatantly homophobic and implies that Obama is part of a vast conspiracy to undermine traditional marriage. Malkin will probably accuse Johnson and Johnson of being a gay conspiracy on her blog next week.

    • ProgDestroyer

      schlocky you are, in a word, moronic. Deal with this troll; we are onto the jesse jerkson shakedown tactics and will no longer sit by and let you and yours get away with them anymore. Incidentally the "gay culture" used to be known as the "love" that dared not speak its name and now has become the "love" that won't STFU. For you to defend Obummer's defense of marriage is a complete joke and only shows you to be a bald faced liar. One of the first acts of this idiot upon getting into office was to announce that his administration didn't agree with DOMA and therefore wouldn't enforce it via the DoJ. I can't wait to kick your types out of office in November and hear this assclown, you and your traitorous pals have pissed off the silent and patient majority and the game is just beginning to whip your asses good. I for one will not rest until every g-d one of you has been driven back into the primortial swamp your sorry asses crawled out of. The piper is playing and payback is going to be a bitch for you cretin.

      • Schlomotion

        Me and mine? I didn't defend Jesse Jackson, Obama or DOMA. I am also not a Democrat and didn't vote for Obama. I am actually a Constitutionalist who just renewed his gun license ten minutes ago. Care to get anything else way wrong?

        • ProgDestroyer

          schlocky, you are a constitutionalist my arse. I am guessing from your implied accusations to the other posters here of being homophobic and your usual braying about the evils of zionism that you are another ron paul troll. You probably listen to alex "uber-paranoid" Jones and the dude(ette) nation and think they are the real constitutional genius' vice the likes of Mark Levin and Judge Napolitano. In the end your whole knowledge of the constitution can be rolled into one of those funny cigarettes you smoke. Sadly the content of which wouldn't even raise your blood pressure. Oh, and yes you did attack DOMA jackass hence your sarcasm that Michelle would attack obummer for that next. Go back to the beanbag in your mommies dirty musty basement troll.

          • Schlomotion

            I voted for Ron Paul but I am not affiliated with his campaign. I look at Alex Jones' website but in the same spirit as I look at Frontpage, or Matt Drudge, or EIR, or Whatreallyhappened, or Justin Raimondo. I know none of these people are serious journalists, and they all have their own conspiracy theories interspersed with a dystopian worldview. I am actually in it for the dystopian worldview. I don't think you have said anything significant by branding me and my media tastes. You have simply implied that yours are better. I doubt it.

            The fact is obvious: you don't "destroy" much at all. You probably destroy a lot of carbohydrates from the refrigerator, but you are proud of a lot of things that aren't really accomplishments, and you deprecate a lot of things that don't make you stand any higher when you crow from the alleged ashpile of your slain foes. I could probably smoke a joint while crushing you in a headlock, so I don't know why you are puffing yourself up about being a straightedge. I said I was a Constitutionalist and I am one, though it doesn't really matter if you think I am or not. My point was that Malkin is and writes homophobically. You are taking that to mean that I support Obama, which is really a pin-headed conclusion to draw as the world is filled with far more than Republicans and Democrats. You really ought to restrict yourself to things that you would say in person. I dispense that free advice because I think that you might be in danger of having a hippie, probably a girl or a homosexual embarrass you in a street fight some day.

    • moddtymer

      ah yes…the old homophobic slur…I must be afraid of homosexuals ( or perhaps I am one but won't admit to it ) if I'm not on the gay marriage parade float…yes…that's it…I'm afraid of homosexuals…

      • Schlomotion

        Nobody's talking about you. I am talking about Michelle Malkin, a writer who routinely writes anti-gay screeds.

        • moddtymer

          you're lumping everyone who upholds traditional marriage into the homophobe camp with your smack down on Malkin

          we are all Malkin!!!! yee haw!!!!!

          • Schlomotion

            No, I am not. But I question just how militantly you can "uphold" traditional marriage. It seems to me that you can only do so by having and maintaining your own good marriage, and that of your kids. Anything beyond that is homophobic.

    • Guest

      When will people such as yourself quit using the meaningless term homophobic. I am not homophobic. I hate homosexual perverted behavior I do not fear it. The way I. Figure homosexuals have more to fear from this perverted lifestyle than I do. They are the onces getting diseases, psychological breakdown, and hyper drug addiction.

      • Schlomotion

        I am sure nobody appointed you cultural minister over gay lifestyle or comptroller of the English lexicon.

        • Atlas_Collins

          Is Schlomo homo?

          • Schlomotion

            nono

        • intrcptr2

          And who appointed "them" such? Unless a LGBT can peer inside my heart, then he has no right whatsoever to define my opposition to legal and moral sanction of his behavior as based in fear; it has nothing to do with the dictionary and everything to do with public debate (Which curiously, they have stoutly avoided).

          Why must the 97% of Americans who avoid such things accept as perfectly normal, on pain of ostracism and legal sanction?

          • Schlomotion

            Right. So using your criteria, Zionists "have no right whatsoever to define my opposition to legal and moral sanction of their behavior as based in fear, (jealousy, or hatred)."

          • intrcptr2

            Can't say I've ever heard the term Zionophobia.

            Nice try, Slow.

            Now, start at the beginning, and tell me WHY you fear Jews so; did your papa put on a Groucho Marx mask when he spanked you for reading Playboy?

          • Schlomotion

            You and Zionista and Roger are all obsessed with spanking and incest. No matter what I say, you guys wind the discussion back around to that. I have to seriously question your psychosocial fiber. Seriously. Three times a day on average, one or more of you is talking about masochism, spanking, and incest. How do you manage to choose these three things as emblems of Hasbara? I don't get it at all. I'd ask you to refrain from it, but really, I just don't understand your methods of subordinating non-Jews.

    • intrcptr2

      Can we expect a retraction of your "prophecy" should it prove false? Or any other corrections to your pitiable attempt at connecting the dots?

      • Schlomotion

        No you can't because pretty much every few days, she's bugging her crooked eyes out at some alleged leftist interloper who is doing nothing more shocking or damaging to the world than any rightist does.

        • intrcptr2

          Ah, so slander and infantile sniping is fine, because no one expects you ever to be right in the first place. nice

          I do hope your wife taught your kids better manners, and honesty, than you tend to exhibit here. Pity their grandmother did such a poor job.

          • Schlomotion

            Alas no. All we have is a Torah to study.

  • Goemon

    More conservatives should seriously talk about dealing with businesses the way these leftists do. Our future likely requires it! However, if a man likes pounding his fellow man in his fetid, reeking cornhole, and wants to sanctify it with the beauty of marriage, i don’t care. Who will stop the gay dogs and other animals i see from their re-enactments of ancient Sodom’s cultural customs?

  • Chezwick

    This issue strikes to the heart of our democracy. If conservatives cede our corporations to the left they way they have academia and the media, the battle is lost.

  • Amused

    yea imagine that , there are people in this country who actually organize to bribe politicians into legislating laws that favor them !
    And the nerve of those Americans who oppose this behavior !! Damn Lefties they are !
    Well you're too late Malkin , the proverbial cat is already out of the bag ,ALEC's been exposed for WHAT it is ,and WHO is behind it . And those companies are leaving the sinking ship like rats . If there was nothing to be ashamed of , they would not be leaving . But I do not attach a tag to the scoundrel politicians that are participating in this UN-DEMCRATIC PRACTICE ….it is HYPOCRITES like you Michele and little minions like Chezwich who suck up to these traitors , after allthis is buisiness as usual with politicians DEMS AND REPOCONS . And anyone who thinks this is one sided is a DAMN FOOL >

    • Chezwick

      But you're not a liberal, eh?

      • Amused

        you need not be a liberal chez to figure out you're getting screwed , but …maybe you like it eh ? another bootlicking repocon .Either you're very stupid , or you just didn't do your homework on ALEC. Bet your "siblings" know better eh chez ?

        • Chezwick

          I see. So ALEC is an evil, sinister entity….just like the Tea Party, eh Sherlock?

          But it's your identity crises that I find so remarkable…the flaming liberal who doesn't know he's a liberal.

  • Amused

    So yea , you phonies go ahead with your little boycott , and spit into the wind …lol…..ANYONE who is serious about this COMMON BEHAVIOR among our politicians , would push for long prison terms for such traitors that lobbyists andf organization like Alec truly are , and scream for term limits .
    But dont expect that anytime soon .

  • StephenD

    We can't compete with the Left. We can't be out in front of stores with signs chanting for a boycott.

    Most of us have to work for a living instead of taking a chunk out of Free America.

  • Guest

    Conservatives do not band together and protest or boycott. They are so afraid of being called racist that they go out of their way to avoid this and weaken their position through endless apologies. Democrats and liberals never apologize for even the most abhorrent behavior.

    Conservatives do not band together and protest because they are busy working for a living. The liberals are the so-called 1 percent with funding from the rich cats in Hollywood, Soros, unions, Facebook, Microsoft, apple. All the rich entities fund the liberal agenda and give them money which gives them time and transportation. We do not have this.

    Conservatives worry they have too much to lose. The irony is, the more they worry about losing and draw in on themselves, the more rapid their devastation will become. But I think this was all predicted somewhere.

  • Questions

    Blacks, as usual, are leading the charge against conservatives. When will we realize that this race constitutes a dangerous rump faction in American political life?

    • borat

      Why blame the whole race when you can just blame the leftist blacks? i wouldn't want any race of right-wing extraterrestrial aliens blaming the whole white race for what loony radical leftists like Code Pink and Roseanne Barr are doing, or blaming all Jews for communism just because a lot of them are. No need to base a person's worth on their race when basing it on their politics is far more fair and efficient. Now scram!

  • reality

    How much does Robin get from Sorrs and the like?

  • Amused

    Boy there certainly ain't no shortage of f—king idiots here, now is there . Malkin's typical audience and sycophants . Blacks , gays , blah blah blah , scatterbrains shooting off in all directions , seemingly oblivious to a very large organization whose sole purpose is to bribe politicians for legislation to suit themselves and screw anyone else .
    Just another CLASSIC EXAMPLE of zombie-like REPOCONS licking the boot that kicks them …

  • Marvin E. Fox

    Good work Michelle! The American people are beginning to get the message. We are presently under assault from more and different ideas and people than I have ever seen at one time in my 79 years. The Democrats seem to think these many different elements they have invited into their party will eventually form the usual non participative democracy and all become good buddies. The Muslims want to kill the homosexuals. The environmentalists, the socialist, and the Muslims all want complete control over the world. The benefactors who want to depend on the mentioned and unmentioned above believe they are in charge of the whole mess because they are told it is democratic., which has nothing to do with being a Democrat.
    Real people based in real principles and morals need to make their voices heard where those voices can be helpful. We need Michelle Malkin and those who are keeping their eyes on the destroyers of worlds to keep us informed.
    Marvin E. Fox

  • Amused

    Hey Marvin , if you need someone like Malkin to "keep you informed " , brother , you're in a bad way .

  • Amused

    btw , please explain the " real principles " involved in ALEC .
