Falling Panda: Boycott The View and its Sponsors
Dan at Falling Panda has a wonderful idea for dealing with the rot that has become The View. If you're just tuning in, Rosie O'Donnell, a co-host on the show, has fallen off the deep end.
In addition to dispensing her usual hard-Left blather, O'Donnell has now begun marketing 9/11 conspiracy theories. One of the hateful fictions: implying that the U.S. Government, neocons, Israelis/Zionists, or some combination thereof, used controlled explosions to bring down World Trade Center 7. Popular Mechanics promptly obliterated her ludicrous theory, using concepts foreign to the likes of O'Donnell (i.e., science, facts, and analytics).
Falling Panda calls for a boycott of not only The View itself but also its sponsors. Dan lists the following sponsors from the 3/30 show:
|Humira - Arthritis drug||Pier 1 Imports||Vaseline Intensive Rescue Body Lotion|
|Pilsbury Toaster Strudel||T.J. Maxx||Stanley Steemer|
|Reach One Ultimate Clean Toothbrush||M&M's||Janome Sewing Machine|
|Zyrtec||Tide Laundry Detergent||Marshall's|
|Stainmaster Carpet||Cottonelle Toilet Tissue||Crest Whitening Rinse|
|Disney's Meet the Robinsons||Best Foods Mayonnaise||Woolite|
|Claritin -D||Sears||Honey Bunches of Oats|
|Loestrin 24||Excedrin||I Can't Believe It's Not Butter|
|BAM Power Cleaner||Pepto Bismol||Head And Shoulders|
|Bush's Baked Beans||Miracle-Gro||Scrubbing Bubbles|
|Singulair||All Detergent||Dove Ice Cream|
Please join the effort. Avoid these products and make clear why. And feel free to repost this article in whole or in part.
Dan reports that since January, the ABC morning show has lost close to a half million --uhm-- viewers. Let's accelerate the demise of Rosie's hard left, anti-American soapbox.
Update at 20:40: Dan has provided a link to Janome's Customer Feedback Form. Feel free to rip off my letter if you'd like:
|To whom it may concern:|
I want to express my concerns regarding your association with the ABC show "The View" and Rosie O'Donnell in particular. O'Donnell has always been somewhat liberal in her views but last week she appeared to go way over the line.
On Friday, O'Donnell implied that the U.S. Government or some other conspiracy had played a part in the collapse of the World Trade Center.
This is outrageous and patently ludicrous propaganda. Popular Mechanics Magazine promptly rebutted her ridiculous assertions. I don't have a problem with most of what O'Donnell says, but 9/11 Conspiracy theories and the like debase the show and, by extension, your products.
I would recommend severing ties with "The View" until it cleanses itself of this anti-American rhetoric.
