Coca-Cola to Glenn Beck: We Won’t Be Back!
And that’s entertainment…
Ah, the sweet fizz of justice on a Friday morning. Yes, Coca-Cola, that all-American – dare I say REAL American?! – beverage company has decided that it is not right for their image to advertise on Tea Party leader and chalk board aficionado Glenn Beck’s Fox TV show. While Coke is just one of many advertisers who have rejected Beck’s TV show, and it may not have been the first time Coke announced their repudiation, it was the shunning dismissal of the Crying Clown that really stung. This is most upsetting since Glenn Beck is nothing but an entertainer for God’s sake, you over sensitive Lefty!
“We kindly requested that they follow the responsible action of well over 100 other former advertisers and refrain from advertising on Glenn Beck’s show. Well, your tweets and messages paid off. Today, Coke advised that their ads will no longer be run on Glenn Beck’s program. Statement from Coca-Cola sent to the StopBeck effort:
Hey, you’re correct, our 10 second ad did run there once…You won’t see us there again…Thanks for bringing it to our attention…Best!”
When mainstream America starts rejecting Glenn’s message to this extent, it suggests that some people don’t find Glenn all that entertaining. But how can that be? It used to be that advertisers were clamoring to grab the Right (like TLC chasing after the Domionist Home Schooling crowd by selling Sarah Palin as an animal lover), an untapped market which Rupert exploited very successfully. But by golly, there’s always room for more exploitation!
And so it’s odd, isn’t it, to see Coca-Cola shunning the Crying Clown. Or maybe not. Glenn Beck has a long history of hate, misogyny, bigotry, and racism. Or as the Right calls it, “entertainment”:
~~ “Palin/Beck? Ridiculous…I was just thinking, what I’m gonna take backseat to a chick? While you’re at it, go shoot a bear! Make some stew! I’m hungry in here.”
~~Responding Gloria Steinem’s discussion of sexism in American politics, Glenn Beck said: “You self-centered, self-righteous, socialist, out-of-control, dangerous, man-hating bitch. Shut your mouth. We might have bought into this crap in the 1960s because too many people were doing LSD. We’re not on LSD anymore. You need to start making sense.”
~~Or, in Glenn Beck’s distant past, where he called a rival radio DJ’s wife, who had just suffered a miscarriage, and proceeded to mock her for it live on the air.
Entertainment! Oh, yes, entertainment! Why does Coca-Cola hate entertainment??? It must be the lamestream media’s fault for messin’ with the message of entertainment!
~~ Glenn Beck: OK. No offense, and I know Muslims. I like Muslims. I’ve been to mosques. I really don’t believe that Islam is a religion of evil. I — you know, I think it’s being hijacked, quite frankly. With that being said, you are a Democrat. You are saying, “Let’s cut and run.” And I have to tell you, I have been nervous about this interview with you, because what I feel like saying is, “Sir, prove to me that you are not working with our enemies.”
Oh, yes, entertainment! I don’t know why the Left is so outraged. Those mean old libertards got nothing better to do than get their stupid panties in a bunch! Relax, it’s ………. Entertainment!
~~ “This president has exposed himself, I think, as a guy, over and over and over again, who has a deep-seated hatred for white people, or white culture. Adding…“I’m saying he has a problem. He has a, this guy is, I believe, a racist.”
Oh, yes, that’s hysterical! My God, it’s just the kind of fun you want to invite the neighbor’s kids over for, eh? Gosh golly, let’s all gather around the Family Values pit and see what other minorities we can pick on for fun.
Ohhhh! What about those pesky Indians? Mustn’t let the brown colored ones get off too easy!
~~”Beck implied that there are no quality medical schools in India; implied that medical care in India is a shoddy imitation of real health care; implied that the entire nation is an undeveloped backwater without even so much as indoor plumbing; and compared the Ganges River, a holy body of water for one of the world’s oldest and largest religions, to a disease.”
Yeah, this is all good clean entertainment!
I don’t know why Coca-Cola is listening to a bunch of Soros Lovin’ FEMA camp directin’ birth certificate lackin’ Lefties! What is this country coming to?????
WE WANT OUR COUNTRY BACK!!!!
You know, Coke is synonymous with America, summer baseball games and family barbecues. When Coke shuns you, things are bad.
You lose Coke, you lose the war. It’s all over but the crying.
