Glenn Beck Under Attack; Melt “Their” Phone Lines (UPDATED)

It appears the liberal left is coming for Glenn Beck, and we need to let everyone who will listen know that they are using their tried and true method of scaring the bejesus out of advertisers.  It also appears the White House is deeper involved in the shenanigans behind the boycotting of Beck’s advertisers; but that is another post.

A few days ago I read this post by John Galt and started working on an article.  Here are two important excerpts that apply to this situation, and to the future campaign of the idiot-in-charge.

An Open Letter to the 9-12 Movement and the Tea Party Participants

That is how the left did it. They realized decades ago that protesting the candidates or politicians accomplished nothing but by boycotting the contributors on a local basis you can create pain that will piss off the donors and finally get legitimate recognition that the media will not ignore. Think about “Joe’s Chevrolet” should it be on that list. How many customers do you think will avoid the ‘Cash for Clunker’s’ bargains if there are two hundred protesters on the sidewalk in front of their business on a Saturday afternoon because the owner decided to pay bribe money to a local politician? You can not win calling, you can not win faxing, you can not win whining to Mr. Beck on the radio; you must adapt, change and confront.

Now for the first class stamp. A major corporation like a Citigroup, Goldman Sachs, etc. could care less about one letter. But a million letters a day? Yeah, that would get their attention. Do not waste your time on sending letters to companies where the government has direct control or ownership like Bank of America, Citigroup, Fannie Mae, GM, etc. Work on the medium sized companies that do not have the staff or personnel to handle the load. Look for a mid-Fortune 500 or Fortune 1000 company for example with revenues less than one billion bucks, but enough to contribute to the anti-American politicians and causes. A semi-trailer full of bags of mail for a week will slow their company processes down and with polite letters mixed in with their regular mail either force a public comment about their support for Obamanation policies or better yet, force them to withdraw financial support for those politicians (the real goal) who think you are just another right wing radical nut clutching your Bible and gun. This is more of a 9-12 Project type of thing but in your letters, please be factual, polite and do not curse. Most importantly, hand write every one of them and thank your local Post Office for the hard work those poor folks put into the effort carrying all the mail. They are just schmucks like us, trying to get by.

That is how the nuts work gang. They want to disrupt and hijack funding, not convince the masses they are right or wrong. They realized this in the 1990’s and moved accordingly. I would suggest those of you so inclined to make a difference consider your position, your liabilities and these tactics as there are oh so many more which one can use if you read their playbook or just remember what annoyed the hell out of you in the late 1970’s.

You may have been hearing or reading about ColorOfChange and Glenn Beck’s advertisers but in all the screaming coming from the MSM about “un-American” “nazis” this story is getting lost and it is could very well be a game-changer if Beck is muzzled and no longer exposes the connections behind this administration.

Obama Official Linked to Racially Charged Boycott of Glenn Beck

A racially charged activist group called “Color of Change” founded by Van Jones, a special advisor to the Obama Administration, is trying to silence popular radio and Fox News personality Glenn Beck by calling for a boycott of Beck’s TV advertisers.

On July 28th, Beck made a comment on the Fox & Friends morning show about Obama’s reaction to the arrest of Dr. Henry Louis Gates Jr. During the discussion of “Professor-Gate,” Beck connected the President’s past association with Rev. Jeremiah Wright to Obama’s comment that Cambridge police officer, Sgt. James Crowley, acted stupidly.  Though Beck acknowledged most of the Obama administration is in fact white, he concluded that the President’s world experience made him a “racist.”

Now “Color of Change” has bullied at least five of Beck’s big advertisers — SC Johnson, Progressive Insurance, Geico, Procter & Gamble and Nexus Lexis — to pull their ads from Beck’s national cable program.  Jones, the founder of “Color of Change,” was named Special Advisor for Green Jobs at the White House Council on Environmental Quality — a key administrative post — this past March.

Putting tax-payer dollars to dubious use, the not-for-profit organization has hired well-heeled Hollywood publicist Ken Sunshine to further instigate the boycott.

Are you ready to melt some phone lines and tie up some companies with actual snail mailed letters that they have to spend time and money handling?  Are you ready to send this post to all your email lists? Are you ready to drop this link on other sites? Just remember to be polite.  We are not the screaming, trashcan throwing, unwashed anarchists I saw bussed into the WTO riots in Seattle in 1999.

(UPDATE #2: Add Sargento to the list:

Company on Decision to Pull Ads from Beck TV Show: ‘We Do Not Want to be Associated with Hateful Speech’

What constitutes “hateful speech?” It depends on the views of the individual, or in this case the advocacy group propagating the claim.

Earlier this week, Plymouth, Wisc.-based Sargento Food, Inc., along with several other companies, pulled their advertising from the Fox News Channel’s “Glenn Beck” program at the behest of a campaign by Color of Change, an advocacy group.

Barbara Gannon, vice president of Corporate Communications & Government Relations for Sargento Foods Inc., told the Business & Media Institute why her company decided to stop advertising during the Fox News Channel program.

“I can confirm that Sargento has instructed our media buyer to not buy advertising that would appear during the Glenn Beck Show,” Gannon said in an e-mail to the Business & Media Institute on Aug. 14. “We market our products to people regardless of their political affiliations. As a business, we sometimes disagree with the administration’s policies. Yet we do not want to be associated with hateful speech used by either liberal or conservative television hosts.”

  • no-nonsence-nancy -

    Thanks,DT, I’m going to start it today. What can you expect when you select a Chicago thug for the White house? You get Chicago thuggery.

  • Welcome! I was trying to get this post out last night, and I do not know what was happening yesterday – everybody was having a tough day, I just could not get it done until this morning.

    I will follow this story. The Giant can never go back to sleep again.

  • CALL SARGENTO CHEESE- They are based out of Wisconsin and pulled their Glenn Beck advertising at the behest of Van Jones. 1800-442-7221

  • Signed the petition and will start making the phone calls.

    You know when you start having Democrat Pollsters/Consultants like Caddell helping turn over the rocks to expose the vermin, the WH is beyond being unhinged. No telling what they will do next.

    Remember… whatever is being reported in the news cycle is NOT the current target. But, the more of this tangled web that gets exposed, the more they will have to call audibles (to use football parlance) and the more mistakes they will make… which will cause more of this to be exposed for what it really is.

    I have a feeling that what we are dealing with here makes Watergate look like a holdup at a lemonade stand. Keep up the pressure!

  • Hey Glenn, you fucktard: wear slacks, not jeans. It won’t help you gain any respect, but it might slow down you losing it.

  • DT… I see that the lib left’s educated elites have now arrived on this post… weighing in with sophistry I have been waiting all day to hear. I can now sleep well tonight.

  • ROFL! Yeppers – the Portland, Oregon anarchists are here alright. They just love the Monster! 😉

    I just have one question completely OT – why did the Seattle Police try to gas a 9-1/2 month pregnant woman twice during the WTO riots?

  • Signed the petition, dropped the link in the comment section of all the political and top stories on Fox Nation.

    Will send e-mails and make calls but does anyone have the mailing addresses to these sponsors.

    You know you are on to something when the “potty mouths” arrive.

  • NormaJean -

    It seems “Smarter” is not so smart hiding behind a computer screen spewing his mindless comments. Certainly doesn’t speak as an “elite”.

    Yes Dug, it’s comforting to see the minions climb out of their holes with the surge of pressure…….coming from the Windy City with first hand exposure to the grinding wheels of the political process, I say Bravo Glenn..keep it up!! It sure brought a smile to my face yesterday, their pay to play game is unraveling and revealing the tenacles of corruption.

  • DT… I’m not sure about the woman you are referring to. But, I do remember that WTO meeting and the Seattle police basically setting up what amounts to martial law/a police state. Clinton and the globalists had a lot riding on that meeting, as I recall, and it just fell apart.

    But, this may be in our future at the rate things are going. That is part of the steps toward a socialist/fascist state… make the public dependent on the state, get the press to be a propaganda arm, and then set up a police state to keep everyone in line (probably through a manufactured crisis — read: financial calamity). The wheels are definitely in motion.

    The globalists are determined to take the U.S. down, so they can usher in the new order. People are starting to wake up, though. I still have to believe that God is watching over this country. He may be holding His nose… but, there are still enough of us that believe in our roots of national sovereignty and destiny. This is one old dog that will not go out without a fight.

  • NormaJean -

    Is this what Obama meant by post partisan, healing the divide, doing thing differently with total transparency in Washington?
    And thus continues a long string of assaults on private citizens by Obama and the people around him. Let’s recap, Joe the Plumber, Rush Limbaugh, Sarah Palin, Sean Hannity, Special Olympians, people who watch Fox news, people with guns and Bibles, Tea Party go’ers and virtually every Conservative with his DHS right wing extremist report. More concisely, anyone who disagrees.
    Maybe this is what Obama really meant when he said, “Shut up and get out of the way”.

  • Did anyone happen to think about sending emails to the companies still advertising on Beck and telling them how great it is that they advertise on this show?

  • GG: I had not thought of that but I will make a note next week as to who they are.

    Ironically we would have to send one to Obama since he was plugging one of the volunteer programs . I thought that was funny, like the wanted to get some off so he could get on.

  • letty aka granny gripes -

    DEMAND that they PROVE to us DOCUMENT in black and white with video to that GLENN BECK engaged in HATE SPEECH.

    WE WILL NOW begin the campaign to BOYCOTT them.
