    Pushback against boycott terrorist tactics

    Pushback against boycott terrorist tactics

    The reason I have pushed back against the Rush boycotters has nothing to do with Rush.  Social media anonymity has allowed all sorts of implied and explicit threats against advertisers and others as a means of shutting down speech, particularly conservative speech.

    Twitter is just one part of it; there’s a hunting down of people that is dangerous and frightening.  Much of it is organized and instigated, as I noted last week.  More on that tomorrow.

    In the meantime, it is heartening to see a company speak out against the tactics.

    Via Right Scoop:

    MSCO CEO Mark Stevens told Varney and Company about the campaign against his company to stop him from advertising with Rush Limbaugh. He emphatically says that the story isn’t getting out, that this isn’t a boycott, but rather an organized terrorist action.

    He describes emails from people telling him that his company is now under constant surveillance, that they are watching every move he makes. His employees, even female employees, are getting emails calling them woman haters.

    When asked why he doesn’t think it’s just a bunch of unhappy people, he said “The comments are all the damn same. ‘You hate women! You hate women! You hate women!’”

    Stevens is so put off by this attack that he has decided to double, even triple down on his advertisements. He said he’s even in negotiations to just run ads spots noting his support for Rush Limbaugh.

    Great post. I’m in complete agreement with the post. I’m not a fan of Rush, but what is being done to him is as this CEO said “terror tactics”.

    Rush should stay on radio, anyone who doesn’t want to listen, change the channel.

    Thanks lefties for showing your “tolerance”, what a bunch of haters.

      I should say this is against the companies as well as Rush, as the CEO said, “”terrorist tactics” against that said company.

      Thanks lefties for showing your hatred and your wanting to intimidate those who disagree with you.

    For S&G’s I would contact the local FBI and get them involved. Any traffic over the Internet (eg email) that happens to cross state lines, would be considered a federal crime. And if I remember correctly, obama, back in 2009, signed a hate crime bill into law.

    Also, it would not be difficult for a security consultant to examine the email header of those messages that are threatening this company. Easy to trace these messages back to the original IP Address. Once that has been established, the FBI can obtain warrants for those records from the Internet provider and trace this back to the individual user. I think that the federal authorities can have these “terrorists” hand cuffed in less than 30 minutes.
