Shopping list

Shopping list

Via Think Progress:

… you may be unwittingly helping finance right-wing attack ads.

That’s because many of the country’s most common brands are run by rich conservatives who are using their personal wealth to bankroll outside spending groups that are running attack ads smearing progressives….

The following list of consumer brands either have leaders who wrote checks to outside right-wing attack ad groups or gave money directly from the corporation. Only entities that gave $25,000 or more were included in this guide.

Okay, okay, you don’t have to belabor the point. You had me at “helping finance right-wing attack ads.”

I’ll support all of them (but not the L.A. sports teams, there are limits to principle).


Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.


Goodbye Charmin. I think Mr Whipple would understand.

We basically have civilization and widespread prosperity for the non-political class at stake after all.

…as opposed to products/companies that support the left-wing attack machine? Of which there are probably a whoooole lot more?

Thanks for they buying guide!

Guess I’ll be hitting up the Waffle House for breakfast tomorrow!

Then do a little motorcycle detailing with Brawny at my side.

And maybe catch the new Batman movie at the Regal theaters.

Yeah, sounds like a good day.

The more widespread this gets published, more people will be buying these products then boycotting them.

They left out Chik-fil-a.

Wanna confuse an ignorant leftist? Tell him that he’ll get a free meal at Chik-fil-a on a Sunday.

It’s nice that they put this up so’s I can make sure MY money goes to folks who back people and ideas that I like.

Oh, and Morgan Freeman? Thanks for the heads up. Like other entertainers who’ve chosen to let me know that they will spend the money I give them on people and ideas I don’t like or that I believe are harming this country so that I can now not give them that money anymore. Appreciate your honesty.

Of course considering that probably you and some others in your industry consider me a raaaaacist, you didn’t want MY money anyway.

By the way, hope you’re enjoying that career that you didn’t build.

Gasp !!!

I think I’m gonna have a case of the vapors !

Imagine, people actually spending time and money championing their core beliefs which just so happen to be bedrock American principles.

Wealth should not determine the outcome of elections. We should vote to uphold well-defined and consistent principles. It’s unfortunate that there is no candidate that will perfectly match each of our expectations, but that is the reality and consequence of individual dignity. The goal is to maximize correlation and vote accordingly.

The other companies not on this list should reevaluate their priorities and affirm their American exceptionalism. It is well-defined and, ironically, progressive in a positive sense. It is defined as classical liberalism (i.e. a deference to individual dignity) tempered by Judeo-Christian principles. It is not defined by appeals to baser instincts, but a respect for the unique and inviolable property of individual dignity.

The latest inquisition from T-P probably won’t have much impact. After all, most of those businesses don’t accept food stamps anyway.

Whenever the left posts something like this, it’s a pretty good sign to buy stock in these companies. You’ll probably see a sharp increase in their values this week thanks to the Think Progress “attack”. Seems like time and time again we see that conservatives are willing to vote with their wallets, while liberal ‘buycotts’ fail time and time again.

I think I hear the sounds of LA fans heads exploding.Yep ,there went Nicholson.


I have been boycotting the movies because I hate funding celebutards but I guess it evens out if I go to regal?

er maybe not, nothing I want to go see.

    Mee, too. I no longer go to the movies. Most are crap. I would rather stay at home with my wife and watch re-runs of “I Love Lucy” or “The Honeymooners”.

I guess I’m just gonna have to go buy another couple of cartons of Blue Bell Ice Cream….

….Y’know, ‘cuz I want to lend them my support.

Wut? 😛

Enjoy a White Castle, join the Braver Nation.

Where are the Philadelphia Flyers on this list? Chairman Ed Snider is a Proud Palin Fan and a noted libertarian. That’s the only Philly team I can clearly support without fear. The Phillies have been messing with green issues; the Eagles are owned by a libtard; and I’m not sure yet about the 76ers ownership.

    TrooperJohnSmith in reply to bob aka either orr. | July 19, 2012 at 11:31 pm

    The Eagles have a dog killer as their QB. My alpha dog, Aqua Velva, has been trained to growl at the mention of Michael Vick.

    However, I’m the last person to be objective about anything from Philly. I hate that place so bad, I won’t eat Philly cream cheese or a cheese-steak sandwich. 😀

God bless all of them, and Chick Fil A for their Number 1 combo with nothing extra on that blessed sandwich, waffle fries and Coke Zero.
And service that the government can only dream of or have nightmares about.

All that’s missing is violence. That’s coming.

    redranger in reply to | July 20, 2012 at 8:52 am

    You’re absolutely right – desperately pathetic people who feel they are losing everything and are backing themselves into a corner indeed will eventually turn to violence .. it is coming from the left, you better believe it!

Blue Bell’s on the list?


    theduchessofkitty in reply to Voyager. | July 20, 2012 at 12:23 am

    Blue Bell is the best ice cream I ever tasted. The main creamery is not far from where I live.

    Someone opened a Ben & Jerry’s at Champions Blvd in NW Houston. Last time I passed by, it was boarded up and the property was for lease. It seems very few people in Houston would support Ben & Jerry’s, for very obvious Left-wing causes.

    The feeling is mutual.

    Same for Chick-Fil-A. Every franchise I’ve visited is PACKED at lunch and dinner time. Every day it is opened. McD’s, not that much.

    Texans know where their breads are buttered!

      Yeah, Ben and Jerry’s would be a sure loser in NW Houston, but the one on Kirby still does pretty brisk business. Of course it’s not too far from Rice, so I guess that makes sense.

      Chick-fil-A has the longest drive-through times of any fast food place in Houston.

        TrooperJohnSmith in reply to Meriadoc. | July 20, 2012 at 8:12 am

        Yeah, I stay away from Ben & Jerry’s too. In fact, I didn’t even know we had one in H-Town until I saw it referred to on a facebook post.

        And… the only time I ever do “drive thru” is when Michael Berry or Rush are on the radio.

          TryingToBeHopeful in reply to TrooperJohnSmith. | July 20, 2012 at 9:30 am

          Michael Berry is the beast! I believe he could be the next Rush (in a few more years—if we are still ‘allowed’ to have conservative talk radio… grrrr). I’m not sure what I would do if they were ever head to head; maybe record one? He is FEARLESS on conservative issues, plus laugh-out-loud funny!

          If you want to hear this guy, go to his site, his name dot com. Professor, you should give him a listen [although he may be a little too ‘suthen’ for your taste ;)]

        Voyager in reply to Meriadoc. | July 20, 2012 at 9:34 am

        When I was living out in LA, Blue Bell was one of the things I really missed.

        Ben & Jerry’s isn’t bad, though the politics infusion they try to give most of their flavors is annoying, but Blue Bell is simply the best.

Excellent points, one and all. However, what about those bastions of Socialism, like those famed “Progressive” so-called businesses: Angie’s List, Carbonite, Progressive Insurance, just to name a few, that are promoted by those crazy eyed shouters like Glenn Beck, some by Hannity, others by Rush, as a few such examples.

So, Ok, that’s fair, our Conservative folks have to make a buck too, yet maybe there’s a limit on using some of these companies which strongly support Socialism / Progressive politics.

As one example, maybe paying for HBO isn’t too good of an idea if you really don’t want to have your money support the Dems! Just asking.

Really, this kind of cross politics activity goes on all the time, so what should anyone do about it? Huh?

    theduchessofkitty in reply to Doug Wright. | July 20, 2012 at 1:09 am

    Where were you when the whole Rush thing happened last March? Carbonite dropped him under pressure from the Left, among others. A few companies begged Rush to take them back as advertisers after just a few weeks – the Dittohead boycott was too strong. He refused to take them back.

      ohiochili in reply to theduchessofkitty. | July 20, 2012 at 5:52 am

      Spent a few minutes listening to Glenn Beck – he is touting Carbonite.
      Of all the time I have wasted, I regret wasting those minutes the most.

I don’t see how I can eat much more Blue Bell Ice Cream than I already eat; but I’m willing to give it a try. Homemade Vanilla…Good Night Nurse and CheeChee Bug, as Sammy Allred likes to say.

Just remembered this is the time of year for Peaches ‘n Cream, and I haven’t had any since last year. Who needs Gary Taubes anyway?

By the way, I’m confident Obama and the collective are not responsible for Blue Bell, but some fine, hard-working owners and employees are.

    TrooperJohnSmith in reply to olrtex. | July 20, 2012 at 8:20 am

    Yeah, Blue Bell is so good, that we don’t need any designer creameries or ice creams. We had a Cold Stone open near here, but the stuff always tasted greasy. Apparently a lot of people agreed, because it went away after about 3 years.

    Blue Bell started, as you know, over in Brenham. The ice cream was a sideline for the dairy, with the object of making “homemade” tasting ice cream. They were phenomenally successful, as we all know.

    Obama cannot understand the marketplace, because as we all know, the world evolves around narcissists, thus rendering nuances, such as cause and effect, supply and demand and other such systems, irrelevant.

I personally went over to the Think Progress website and thanked Scott and Adam for making us this very nice list of companies to SUPPORT in order to help get rid of Obama! Please do the same, and make sure you spend every penny you can on these products or at these businesses….and don’t forget to spread the list via twitter and your facebook contacts too!

Thanks again, Think Progress! We appreciate your hard work and we also REALLY appreciate your hypocrisy!

MaggotAtBroadAndWall | July 20, 2012 at 8:59 am

Exit question: Would anybody ever even notice if smelly hippies boycotted using toilet paper?

Not sure why they are picking on these businesses.

They didn’t build them. Somebody else did that!

Well, at least L.A.’s football team didn’t make the list.

Always enjoy a list of new products to try out!

Hooah! BLUEBELL ICE CREAM, Brenham, Texas
You know, Texans need to get the word out about BlueBell.
MOOOlenium is heavenly! Bluebell just started distributing in New Mexico but, you know, they are SOO good they need advertising in other states to distribute there. Easterners don’t know what they’re missing. Forget Haagen Daz! No comparison!

[…] FROM PROFESSOR JACOBSON, a list of businesses you may wish to patronize. […]

auntiesocialist | July 20, 2012 at 8:08 pm

I knew there was a reason I always buy AngelSoft…

I keep hearing that Anthropologie (and Urban Outfitters) are owned by a conservative. I suspect it’s an urban legend.
