Skip to comments.Sportsmen's Show Sole Remaining Sponsors: Progressive & Comcast (Boycott Working!!!)
Posted on 01/22/2013 1:12:19 PM PST by ConservativeInPA
It looks more and more like Flo from Progressive Insurance will be watching the Bloomberg Network on Comcast by herself at the Eastern Sports and Outdoors Show. This comes after Reed Exhibitions, a UK based company, prohibited the display and sale of certain tactical weapons, high-cap magazines and would not allow vendors to display logos of some American manufacturers that vendors sell.
A boycott of the show by conservative sportsmen and businesses throughout the country continues to gain momentum. The show originally had Cabelas, The Outdoors Channel as sponsors, now the sole remaining sponsors are Progressive Insurance and Comcast - two very liberal companies.
The boycott is all over the news and local radio talk shows in Central PA. A Facebook page for the boycott has gained over 10,000 friends in the last several days. This far surpasses the Show's official Facebook page.
Nearly all guest speakers and celebs have boycotted the show, causing the promoter to change their website graphics at the last minute to basically look barren.
This is a huge win for thousands of conservatives working behind the scenes make the boycott work to protect our 2nd Amendment rights.

SMITH & WESSON JUST PULLED OUT!
RUGER, OUT! OUTDOOR CHANNEL, OUT!
LOL Somebody might want to inform them that the big show has been effectively cancelled.
Progressive Insurance is a sponsor? That is solely enough reason for me NOT to attend. The owner of Progressive is a rabid liberal. I wouldn’t have their insurance if they gave it to me.
A trade show without people walking among the booths is a waste of good marketing money. In addition to having issues with the display restrictions I’m guessing that many of the pull-outs are in anticipation of a weak attendance.
What happens if no one comes to see this “show”?
I’m loving this! Bout damn time conservatives start using economic tactics like the libs have for years!
Are there any booths left? probably all empty at this rate
Limey gun grabbers today and back during the American Revolution
are there going to be protestors outside the show discouraging people from attending?
The only booth at that show will end up being the democrat party registration booth.
conservatives can make Reed Exhibitions regret their move.
Maybe they wil move the show to the local Roller skating rink, they don’t need a lot of room now, they may hold it in a phone booth.
Where would they find a phone booth?
This show is massive.
All of their headline celebrity speakers have bailed.
the former british owners of s&w almost destroyed the corporation by lapdoging the clinton administration.
warm-beer-drinking, meat-boiling, prattle-yammering, left-hand-driving, tea-swilling wankers!
S’what ya get for being so prim, progressive, politically-proper...........
formerly massive at any rate
They are getting pretty scarce, Maybe they could rent a Jiffy-John an have the show in the basement.
