Boycot Sargento Cheese: My discussion with Sargento below.
I am a big fan of your products, but since you are submitting to political pressure and boycotting the Glenn Beck show, I am boycotting you.
Dear Mr. — We appreciate you sharing your comments and concerns about Sargento ads appearing during “The Glenn Beck Show.” It’s true that after listening to some of his recent shows we decided to stop buying ads during that program, but Sargento still advertises on other
Fox News shows.
Sargento makes high quality cheese available to people who want these products, regardless of their political affiliations. As a business, we may not agree with many of the current administration’s policies.
However, we also do not want to be associated with hateful speech used by either liberal or conservative television hosts. We’ll share your comments with our marketing department.

You are reacting to political pressure, making a normative decision and a very loud, public statement based on political pressure. You may run your business however you wish. I shall spend my money however I wish. I posted your decision to pull advertising from Mr. Beck’s show on numerous conservation blog and discussion sites. Leftists have long loved boycotts, going back to the 1960s and Cesar Chavez’s boycott of grapes. Turnabout is fair play.
When a business so publically chooses sides in a political discussion, the business only stands to loss. Leave politics to the politicians and focus on your core competancy: making cheese. You are good at it, but there are plenty of folks out there making cheese. I am going to miss your ricotta and hard parmesan. Best value in the market.
50% of the time Glenn Beck sounds rational & reasonable. But when he start trashing President Bush along with O, he loses Bushies like me. NEVER compare W with O.
Having Napalitano & joining with him trashing W for Patriot Act. He says he even opposed Iraq war. Then have Ron Paul & trash Republicans.
'nough trashing your own side & losing support. You need Republicans if you really need defense. Trashing everyone won't work.
Actually, my son just pulled me out of State Farm too and put me with Grange. I haven’t looked into Grange to find out about them yet, but my son said I’d get a better deal anyway...he’s a licensed P&C agent.
Do you have some evidence that State Farm supports amnesty for illegal aliens? If this is so, I’ll change insurers.
On Saturday, June 20, 2009, LULAC Ohio hold its Annual State Convention in Dayton, OH.
The local LULAC Council did an awesome job, organizing not only the Convention, but also a Job Fair, sponsored by Empleos & Employment, and a “Community Awards & Scholarship Luncheon”, sponsored by State Farm, during which Ezra Escudero (Director of Ohio Latino Affairs) and Juan Manuel Solana (Consul of Mexico) made opening remarks.
I am sure that if you googled State Farm and LULAC, or amnesty, you will find more. One of the Freepers recommended Grange Insurance. I am going to check them out.
Thanks—I’ll see what I can find.
If you find a reasonable price on insurance, please let me know. I will do the same.
