A boycott as big as the Ritz

You may remember back in The Year Of Our Obama ’12 when Rush Limbaugh got his pilonidal cyst in hot water for calling Sandra Fluke a whoreslutitute

“What does that make her?” he asks. “It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute. She wants to be paid to have sex. She’s having so much sex she can’t afford contraception. She wants you and me and the taxpayers to pay her to have sex.”

…. and the threat of boycotts against his advertisers  resulted in over 50 advertisers pulling their ads off of his show within the first seven days. Remember that? Cumulus Media does.

So where is the right wing equivalent of that?

I’m glad you asked.

It seems that Ben Shapiro, the Once And Future Virgin, Friends Of Hamas fabricator, History Whiz, and all-round annoying-voiced twerp has branched out from his duties at Dead Breitbart’s Maladroit Warehouse where he shovels horsepucky into the gaping maws of the rubes hungry for some black man hate. His latest endeavor, outside of proudly pointing out that he is a bully magnet,  is something called TruthRevolt, called that, presumably, because #WarWolverines! was already taken. And at TruthRevolt, Ben and his confederates (and by ‘confederates’, I mean white guys who think slavery wasn’t such a bad thing, relatively speaking) are launching a truth jihad on the lamestream media just the way Andrew Breitbart used to when he wasn’t  yelling “stop raping people” at random strangers on the street or just laying down on that street and never ever getting up again…like, forever. Now it’s not that there aren’t already some websites out there led by plucky young men who have opted to fight with typed words on the internet against Godlessliberlalmediamuslimsodomycommunism (see, for example: Matt Continetti’s Combat Journalism). But Shapiro has decided to Bring The Pain to the MSM’s house.  Direct action, bitchez.

It seems that MSNBC’s Al Sharpton used the word “cracker” this one time and everyone knows that cracker  is lots worse than the N-word, but people say it anyway because if you call it “the C-word” people thinks it’s that swear word about lady junk. And because Sharpton once profaned the delicate lily-white sensibilities of the white man with his cracker-talk, Shapiro has launched a boycott of Ritz Crackers who advertise on Sharpton’s show. Because: get it?  Had one of his advertisers been a facial tissue called Honkies they no doubt would be boycotting them too, so; bullet dodged Honky brand bathroom tissue. Also, I would totally buy Honky tissues.

But how about that boycott?

On Monday, TruthRevolt.org, the organization dedicated to targeting the funding bases of propagandizing leftist media outlets, posted a petition asking Americans to tell advertisers on MSNBC’s PoliticsNation with Al Sharpton to drop their support for the race-baiting demagogue.

With a deadline of 1/1/2014 the petition seeks 1000 signatures demanding that Ritz  pull their advert –

Whu-? What? Wait a minute. 1000? Like 1-zero-zero-zero?

That must be missing some zeros because that’s only ten signatures a day which you could easily get by standing in front of a Home Depot with a petition to bring back Home Improvement.  So I must have read that wrong. Lessee…

Nope. 1000. One thousand.  (also: goal reached – awkward white guy high five!)

This is all kinds of sad , although I imagine that there might be somebody at Mondelez International, the parent company of Ritz, who will be very impressed that someone could gather  over ONE THOUSAND SIGNATURES  in a very brief, blink-and-you-missed-it three-month time span.

That having been said, we wish Young Master Shapiro all the best with adorable little boycott thing and look forward to his upcoming  Kickstarter campaign where he seeks to raise $6 for a Jack’s Munchie Meal. Only sixteen days to raise a Lincoln and a Washington, and the clock is ticking.

Reach for the stars….
