In my post below, when I was talking about libertarian wing-nut Eric Dondero and his plans to ignore everybody in his life who might support the Democratic party, I jokingly said, “Don’t forget to boycott all products of a company whose President or CEO is a Democrat – so no more Google, Facebook, Yahoo, or Apple for you.”
Little did I know…
It seems they really do keep making a better class of moron amongst the rabid right. You see, not content with quitting his job, or ditching his partner and cutting off his friends and family, because goddess forvid they don’t think the same as he does, some unnamed nutter is going as far as to call for a boycott of all products made by companies whose headquarters are in blue states. As this nutter says:
I believe GOD has a plan for this nation, I know Jesus is my Savior. I am not seeking “secession” or violent means for any resolution to the ongoing problems we face. I will protect my family at all costs though and that has brought me to this blog-as an extension of an idea I have kicked around since last Tuesday-my wife is in this with me-she knows I am crazy but supports me anyway! (Amen for God fearing Women!).
Here it is, my personal idea-this is just my family. We will not buy products that are made or have corporate headquarters in Blue State.
He then goes on to list a bunch of companies, whose products he’ll be avoiding. Among these are: Pepsi, Wendy’s, Burger King, McDonalds, Subway, General Mills, Kraft, Kellogg’s, Quaker, Proctor & Gamble (but we all know they’re Satanists, so that’s ok), Sears, Target, Domino’s Pizza, and so on.
It’s laughable that after mentioning all the junk food outlets, he has second thoughts – they might be ok, because they’re franchises. Because goddess forbid his principles come between him and a quarter-pounder with cheese! He also lists Domino’s, which is hysterical, because it’s owner, Tom Monaghan, is know for throwing his wealth at just about every right-wing cause under the sun. Guess it was just Tom’s bad luck to set up shop in the wrong state.
Of course, this nutter will also have to avoid Apple, Microsoft, Google (who happen to own Blogspot, where his site is), Intel, Cisco, any American car, his credit cards, Nike, Reebok. Is he going to hand over his guns? After all, the NRA is based in Virginia and Colt, Winchester and Smith & Wesson are all in blue states.
Even more laughably, this yahoo proclaims that the good guys include Kia, Hyundau and some brands of Toyota. Yeah, good American cars there. Very patriotic of you.
Just another example of a butt-hurt, right-wing moron failing to engage what passes for his brain before opening his mouth.
