Obama Official Linked To Racially Charged Boycott Of Glenn Beck

An interesting news bit. From Michelle Oddis over at Human Events:

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.”

The five advertisers are: SC Johnson, Progressive Insurance, Geico, Procter & Gample and Nexus Lexis.

These five companies must be run by idiots to succumb to such a dumb ploy. All they are going to do is lose revenue through reduced sales while their competitors, who will take advantage of the advertising slot openings will enjoy increased sales.

Why would anyone want to decrease their market during a recession? Any company that dumb is a company that I would not want to be doing business with anyway. Plus, playing the race card is a sure way to generate negative publicity for themselves, while simultaneously generating curiosity about Glenn Beck's show.

TV and radio hosts like Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh have such high ratings that they are turning advertisers away. This will only hurt the companies engaging in the boycott. It will not hurt Glenn Beck.
