Let's NOT Boycott Glenn Beck's CURRENT Advertisers

(http://www.bondaction.org/images/GlenBeck.gif)
From Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson

As everyone knows, Glenn Beck has been targeted by Green Job Czar, Van Jones former group, Color of Change.  Jones is the co-founder of this group (http://www.colorofchange.org/about.html), although no longer active.

Beck has lost many advertisers because of his reportings of Van Jones communist & radical past.

Here are several articles regarding this:

We've been with GEICO insurance for over 10 years, maybe even 14 or 15 years, I don't recall. We've been good, loyal customers. Paid & paid & paid & only had 2 claims.  Two times a deer walked out from high grass on the side of the road & into the right front quarter panel of the van. That is it! Oh, I've locked the keys in the van twice too. So, they've gotten LOTS of money from us.

I have written three times to them. The first response was a 'canned' email about how they didn't want to be caught in the middle of a political struggle. blah, blah, blah ...  I responded back that they were being targeted by a radical group of Van Jones. I waited about 5 days & no response. I sent an email stating I wanted an answer. I got a call from them at 10 PM, just about 45 mins after I sent the email. The guy assured me they are looking in to this & the email had been forwarded on. Well, it's been 10 days now.  :depressed:   I will be shopping around for another insurance company.

Where are these people's patriotism? Now AARP is a different matter, & a different subject, for a different thread. But, their employees have donated a BUNCH to Obama's campaign. I'll have to look up GEICO.
