Well, to be fair, the people boycotting the store don't *hate* Obama...just his policies.

FTA:
"People are saying a lot of bad things and boycotting my restaurant," Scott Van Duzer, 46, told POLITICO. "There's no middle line anymore, and that's exactly what's wrong with our country right now."


How sad. How true.

Fark the teabaggers. Next time I'm in Florida, I'll swing over to Ft. Pierce and have one of his pizzas.

FTFA: Van Duzer's June bike-trek was part of his Van Duzer Foundation, and helped raise awareness for blood donation shortages. Founded in 2008 to support a local firefighter whose house burned down, the foundation has since raised more than $600,000, Van Duzer said. Van Duzer said he rode with a few kids from the Boys and Girls Club and met with U.S. Surgeon General Regina M. Benjamin to discuss blood shortages. Obama told The New York Times that Van Duzer's effort in promoting blood donations was part of the reason the campaign decided to visit his pizza shop.

Boycotting a guy who raises money and awareness for homeless firefighters and blood donation? shiat man, why not just kick a bunch of orphaned puppies, walk over to the nearest grotto and worship Satan while you're at it, assholes?

s'okay, it looks like it has backfired, he currently has five stars on Yelp. 

There are only three one-star reviews and one of them says this:

The crust was terrible on this pizza! way too chewy and too much salt in the sauce. Gimme Papa John's ANYDAY

So at least they let us know they're an idiot.

Because hating and ruining this guys business has everything to do with the election? Absolute proof that this is a group of hateful people that really have no plan or organizaed approach to anything. They are like rats in a trap snapping at everything that gets close as they see the Amurca the know and love (that never existed) being hauled down and replaced by everything they hate (that also never existed).

These are people that have been spoonfed all their lives. Sadly the pablum turned from anything nurturing to hate and bile somewhere about the time douche-bags like Rush and the like gained some traction.

Meh. I doubt it'd come to anything. Heck, if anything, I think he'll see plenty of customers to offset those that want to boycott him. In the end, I think, the "boycott" would actually be good for his business. After all, he's getting free advertising in national and local news every time somebody prints a word about the boycott.

And, not for anything, if I were ever in his neck of the woods, I'd stop by for a pie.

First, he was exaggerating, a bit. I'm sure he would rather be able to force these people to sit down, shut up, if only for a few minut4es so they could see what farkheads they are being.

Secondly, he wasn't talking about pizza boycotters, but rather those on that side who have this philosophy that they will do ANYTHING, including causing intentional harm to people and the nation, just to get "their guys" back in power. Even if those same guys are the ones who farked things up so royally to being with.

I would LOVE for those assholes, and their counterparts on the left to be sequestered or at least rendered powerless in some way so the farking adults can do the talking.

I'd hope you wouldn't consider me in that group. I'd like to actually compromise, but I don't see the point in stepping back one inch to people who have no intent on compromising themselves, on the assumption that giving in first will promote cooperation. I know these people won't compromise, so I see no reason to be anything but intransigent. Admittedly, given that the GOP is utterly intransigent, I can't recall the last time there was an issue I was willing to compromise on. Maybe the deficit deal when I'd accept billions in cuts as long as there were tax raises.

That's fair. I'm sure you never said anything bad about Chick-Fil-A on any social media sites.

Let's get to the important issue though. This guy thinks Obama would beat Paul Ryan in a "workout battle". I'd like to see that, despite ambiguous use of the term. I'll say if they both run a marathon, I think Obama will win. We can give Ryan a break and actually credit him for the time he says he finished in, and I think Obama will still beat him. Those Kenyans are fast.

/ ok, I really only meant to start that as a jibe at Ryan for lying about his PR, but just couldn't resist the Kenyan thing. Some of my best friends are Kenyan.

Obama told The New York Times that Van Duzer's effort in promoting blood donations was part of the reason the campaign decided to visit his pizza shop.

Boycotting a guy who raises money and awareness for homeless firefighters and blood donation? shiat man, why not just kick a bunch of orphaned puppies, walk over to the nearest grotto and worship Satan while you're at it, assholes?


Do those puppies support Obama?

This guy raises money for firefighters and raises awareness for blood drives.
Most people boycotting Chick-Fil-A didn't give a shiat about the homophobia on its own. It was about the donations to hate groups. So no, just boycotting them would not be the same.

It started with people ordering pizzas to be delivered to homeless shelters and a GOP office (the latter outside the delivery zone). Then the owner was getting asked for people to whom pizzas could be delivered. Eventually the buy-cott turned into a donation drive for the Van Duzer Foundation, which seeks to increase blood donations among other good works.

I think a lot of this is the connectedness factor.
Similar to how people think that violent crime is a lot more than it was 40 years ago. It actually is a lot less IIRC, but since you hear about it more, you think it is a lot worse.

It started with people ordering pizzas to be delivered to homeless shelters and a GOP office (the latter outside the delivery zone). Then the owner was getting asked for people to whom pizzas could be delivered. Eventually the buy-cott turned into a donation drive for the Van Duzer Foundation, which seeks to increase blood donations among other good works.


I just donated as well. I'm glad to see that it's turned from something negative to something positive. Now if we could just turn the Tea Party trying to shutdown the government again into something positive.

Vangor: Eh...the reason for the boycott is ridiculous, especially against a small business owner who does great charitable works and seems like a thoughtful and politically active person, but you do not have to eat in establishments you disagree with on significant issues. Granted, I think anyone who wants to boycott was not eating there anyway, but the stop gave him great publicity.


Significant issues like hugging the president?

I'd buy some pizza from this guy. He's done a hell of a lot of good for people in need and should be supported so he can keep going.

OTOH, I can't blame anyone who's boycotting him for his political stance. We saw 1000 threads on Fark a month ago against CFA for a political stance by the owner, so it's fair game to reverse it. Unfortunately, this guy is a single shop and can be destroyed by this.

Maybe some Farklibs can put together a day of support for this guy and line up the supporters around the block like CFA got.

Lando Lincoln: the_ut_tick: How is it that some people can organize a boycott because a chicken sandwich guy doesn't like gay marriage and that's awesome. However, when people who are minding their own business decide independently that they don't like something someone does, it's considered horrible?

Chick-Fil-A: we think gays are scum.
Gays: Fark off and die.

Wrong.

Or to quote National Review Online:

They asked people to send a tea bag to the Oval Office. One of the exhortations was "Tea Bag the Fools in D.C." A protester was spotted with a sign saying, "Tea Bag the Liberal Dems Before They Tea Bag You." So, conservatives started it: started with this terminology. But others ran with it and ran with it.

If conservatives had any balls, they'd take their licks and swallow the fact that they teabagged first.

Hmm, yeah TFA doesn't mention anything about Yelp, so I wasn't sure if you were referring to something along those lines or not.
I agree though. Yelp is a place to measure product quality, not morals. Good thing they took them down, but unfortunately most of the reviews now appear to be partisan positive moreso than pizza positive. Can't have your pie and eat it too.

I have know Dancin for about decade. He does seemed to have moved further to the right than he used to be. Pity. Age sometimes gives folks wisdom. Not in this case it seems.

I do recall once upon a time when he was a decent person to talk to and we had reasonable conversations. Now he's so predictable I can almost write his responses for him.


He admitted that many people have a different image of him on Fark versus when they meet him in real life, cementing the idea that what he posts on Fark is nothing but a lying fake character (thus a waste of time). The master of semantics, who will shill for republicans but smugly call out to anyone describing him as one 'When did I ever say I supported republicans?' All his arguments boiling down to how he never technicallly claimed to be something so he can get away with cheerleading for one side and leaves him a route to escape the conversation before he actually has to admit to taking a stand on anything.

However, it appears that his recent return he has dropped the dancing around the topics and semantics and gone full asshole.

Unless your employees and patrons are really damn stupid, then by all means, show the world how stupid you are by getting photographed with a politician.

Anyone that thinks that makes them look better needs their head checked (I wonder, is that covered by the PPACA?).

Well to be fair to Scott, he did only have an hour and a half of advance notice. Obama knew he was going to show up but Scott didn't. He was on the driving range when he got the call. Who would farkin turn down a visit from the President anyway? Its not like he lobbied Obama to come get some takeout pizza. If he had turned him down it would have made him look like an arse.

Bloody William's repetition of Lando Lincoln's comment aside, the real false equivalency is this: The Chik Fil A owner was putting money from his profits to fund those causes that the boycotters were against, making customers indirect supporters of the owner's causes. The more nebulous "I wanna elect this guy" and "I want this specific policy enacted" false equivalency aside, this pizza parlor dude is putting his profits towards blood donations and local victims of hardship, making his customers indirect supporters of aid for people who need help.

The tertiary false equivalence is that, of course, of a small business versus a large one in several states. Many large fast food chains have boycotts levied against them, usually by left extremists. Animal cruelty folks, environment folks, the list goes on. Because of their size and ubiquitous nature, they don't notice the loss in business.

tony41454: Nothing like a Fark hypocrisy party! CHIC-FIL-A!!!!!! You hypocrites wanted to boycott a company just because its owner stood up for morality. NOW you're saying it's NOT okay to boycott this RHINO (he was a guest at the White House earlier this year) for HIS policies. Fark off, hypocrites. I say boycott him. And I wouldn't be talking so loud about "right-wing political partisans" if I were you, because the left-wing PPs are all over the place here.

How can you people even sleep at night? Good grief, liberalism is rightly called a mental disorder.

Bloody William: Vangor: A. Snatchfold: Significant issues like hugging the president?

Support for a President would be a significant issue. As said, boycotting this is ridiculous, but this isn't because he hugged the President; this is because he has explicitly said he would vote for President Obama.

Really? Just... voting is enough now? It's your right to boycott that just as it's your right to boycott anything, but unlike boycotting a chain of restaurants where the head vocally advocated a policy that limits the rights of my friends and loved ones, boycotting a restaurant because... the owner said he would vote the other way just seems petty.


Right wingers are not known for understanding any type or level of context. Group X does Y, so Y can do X. They see eveything in the barest of arguments that will help them continue the 'Us vs them' mentality, keeping everything balanced. Democrats respond to something? Well then so can WE! However, they never fully explore WHY things occur and instead just run with it because the other side did something.

They never do apples to oranges comparisons. Hell, they are incapable to do apples to rocket launchers comparisons. They see both items as tangible objects that people can physically hold, so both situations must be EXACTLT the same in every single aspect no matter what. Because democrats boycotted a store, so will they. However, all they can wrap their minds around is the idea that democrats only boycotted because of party affliation. 'You hate them because they are republican!' "no, I'm boycotting because they send money to damage the rights of others.' 'He likes Obama, I'm going to boycott him!!' They don't even wait to see why he likes Obama. Just liking him is enough to warrent a boycott.

They do it all the time with their attacks. Any side not them will point how someone on their side said something wrong, lying or vile and respond with a criticism to it. All they see is that someone said negative about someone on their side, so they respond with either equal or worst levels of verbal retaliation on ANYONE on the other side. Democrats say that this senator is wrong because he see gays to be evil and inhuman? Well, right wingers will counter by saying that this democrat who mentions that people should grow their own garden is a lazy fat evil biatch. Its similar to how every time an actual politician will say something bad, they dig up some random blogger saying something bad (but not at the same levels of bad) are exactly the same, so excuse our side.

they never see why a republican got a negative reponse, just that the republican got a negative reponse, so all they focus on is turnabout is fair play. However, they never remotely even come close to something on the other side that can justify their "both sides are bad' mentality.

If you don't want your business to be treated based upon your politics as an owner, don't make public appearances and open your yap about political activities. No one would have cared if he were just a face in the crowd at a rally; but, he chose to make a scene in his restaurant. Can't say he should really feel surprised that Republicans would act like the petty children they are...

There's a difference between McDonald's, Burger King and Chik-Fil-A, the people at McDonald's and Burger King know that for the vast majority of their employes they're just job experience, they won't stay long, and they make no effort to try to sway them into staying on for years and years. At Chik-Fil-A? They want people who will stay for years and years, and then they try to make them feel proud that they got conned into thinking this is the most they could do with their life. Your average McDonald's manager is going to think there's something up if a 20 year old shows up and says he wants to work there as long as possible, his entire career if possible. A Chik-Fil-A manager? They're taught to value people like that.

The more this election drags on the more I lament for the loss of the Republican Party. The party of Lincoln has fallen upon dark times. We sold our ideals for hollow arguments, our values for bibles, and our national pride to corporate interest.

Has it really come to this? Are we so blinded by pure hatred that we are willing to our own? The man simply hugged the president. He is a small business owner who makes great strides in his community, if this man was $100 million richer he would be upon a giant marble base for all to gaze upon, he would be a hero of the old republican guard and model for the new! But no, we have taken a person who has earned success in the most ethical way possible and turned him into a target for boycotting. He runs a charity about donating blood for Christ's sake! Not about converting gays with the power of prayer, not about supporting fundamentalist teachings, not to shout vile things at scared young girls as they make the toughest call of their lives inside an abortion clinic, but giving blood! It doesn't get more non-partisan than that.

Oddly enough even though In N Out is run by an evangelical, they don't feel the need to donate to anti-gay groups. How about that?


Does that evangelical take money that he makes from In-N-Out and donate to groups that don't support gay marriage? Like his church?

There needs to be some adults who can point out to the fringes that there is a huge difference between someone advocating/campaigning for an individual and someone who is campaigning AGAINST someone..

If I lived in the area around this guy's pizza shop, I would probably make it a point to buy a couple of pies from him, provided he made something worth eating.

While this guy is no hero like Nguyen Ngoc Loan, he has every right to advocate for President Obama without have the lessor of us trying to boycott his pizza shop.

Some money given to Chick-Fil-A is donated to anti-gay causes, and their CEO publicly denounces gay rights. Hence, people who support gay rights would be dissuaded to give money to that company knowing some of those funds are working against their interests.

Pizza Guy is a Republican who merely said he was VOTING for Obama. Not donating money. Not giving any other support than his one vote. What does boycotting his business accomplish? He's already giving zero money to the Obama campaign, so what are you accomplishing by boycotting him besides being a total douchebag?

I will admit that he has taken a couple steps right with regards to stockpiling ammo (He says itsn for the "troubles" between the makers and the takers), but surprisingly some steps towards the center especially on things like green energy, corporate welfare, and government subsidized technical schools.

It's not good, but it really has been worse. 1965 had the Watts riots. 1966 had people threatening to murder black people over integrated housing. The past brought us the weather underground, Kent State, lunch counter sit-ins, sundown towns, etc.

That really is a silly argument. Of course he has the right to say what he wants.

But he isn't entitled to have the business he has - he has to earn it. If you say something that annoys part of your customer base, there may be a consequence of doing that.

No different than a guy in Boston talking about how much he supports the Yankees. He may make a great pizza, but he shouldn't be surprised if he doesn't have a lot of people ordering from him when the Yankees face the Sox.

You're quite good at spinning things to make the GOP look good and their opponents look bad, and you're quite skilled at insulting people. I just find the irony here of you calling others "partisan hacks" hilarious. Hell, I'd say you're a much bigger partisan hack than GAT is.

Salt Lick Steady: tinderfitles: I was born into it. Family is from Pennsyltucky, born in Georgia and spent most of my life here on and around military bases. I've been listening to Limbaugh since I was little. Hell even called into his show once when I was maybe 11 to tell him that "Maybe we should talk it over before we storm a Chinese base to take back our electronic surveillance aircraft". I have seen a lot of good republicans, my dad included, been talked down to like some sort of "race traitor" for daring to even think of compromise. I mean when a man graduates from west point, serves in the military for most of his life, wins a bronze star, earns a legion of merit, who considers himself a strict constitutionalists, and has a picture of him circa '83 with a cutout of Ronald Reagen, is shut off for not being republican enough then I consider it time to lament.

/In case you are wondering I am 23.

I'm 30. My dad has three silver stars, two bronze stars, four purple hearts. He long ago condemned the Bush 43 plan to privatize SS. I was having lunch with him in '08, before the election, and I asked him, "Do you really think Sarah Palin would be fit to be president, considering John McCain's medical history?"

He paused and reluctantly said, "Well... I think she could learn." And you could tell, you could just tell he was lying to himself. Military service creates a hive mentality, but it can be broken through. He's now a rather staunch environmentalist and advocate of reproductive rights when it comes to his political views.

With all due respect, my father, a hard core Republican, but close friend of Chuck Hagel( who was a big Obama advocate) two weeks before the 2008 election was still advocating for Obama, but my sister-in-law, a hard core Liberal from New Jersey could not find it in herself to vote for Obama. 2008 was a very interesting election and it has to be noted that we will probably never see another campaign as "exciting" as what the Obama team put on in 2008.

I do recall once upon a time when he was a decent person to talk to and we had reasonable conversations. Now he's so predictable I can almost write his responses for him.


On the subjects of guns, redheads, or BBQ I could easily agree, or at least amiably converse, with the feller.

You are either stupid or lying. The f-tards on MSNBC started that.

Lie.
Another farking lie from the most lie filled political party ever in my long ass life.
"Teabaggers" is a term you turdeaters started. That is not a lie so you probably won't believe it.


Yeah, so true. As a proud liberal, I can tell you that if a member of the Democratic Party hugged Bush in a similar manner and this man had also done a great deal to raise money and awareness for good causes that really don't have anything to do with party affiliation like BLOOD DONATIONS, I surely would have vilified that individual as best I could and raised holy hell to see that he was called out as against all our values.

Sorry, pal. Reasonable people don't think this way, and that's why there are a few...very sadly..very few...self identified Republicans identifying this as the horrible thing that it is. A fine American small business owner being called out for supporting a President that is purely and totally hated and demonized by a small but vocal minority. It's ridiculous, asinine, egregious and beyond belief.

I only pay cash there so they're not screwed out of their profit margin by the credit card companies. Always pay cash only at family owned businesses.

A boycott is a boycott, and everybody has the right to ask for one.
Just as everyone has the right to either assist the boycott or ignore the boycott.

All this 'we would never do that!' from liberals is moronic. the homeless dude in OC has a point.

Komen was assholish by trying to dictate what parts of women's health they would and would not support.

Rush called a woman a slut repeatedly because, at 58 years old and having been married 4 times, this supposedly straight man still has no idea how birth control pills work.

These people aren't "part of his customer base," they state in their reviews that they've never eaten at his restaurant. They don't even live in the same state.

No different than a guy in Boston talking about how much he supports the Yankees. He may make a great pizza, but he shouldn't be surprised if he doesn't have a lot of people ordering from him when the Yankees face the Sox.

These people aren't boycotting him, they're leaving false negative reviews for his business. It's not the same and you're being disingenuous by trying to pretend it is.


I was referring to his comment that he is being boycotted (bolded above), please try to follow along.
So you are saying he lied when he said people were boycotting his business?

The pizza guy only said he was hoping nobody boycotted his restaurants.

The original point of this thread and the point of the article, is that people are leaving fake reviews on his Yelp page, people who are admitting they've never eaten there and wouldn't because he's a "traitor" or whatever other crazy spews from their malformed brains.

But you're right, you weren't the one who brought it up, I conflated your comment with that of others here who are putting up the "boycott" strawman. Now, there are those who have said it's a shiatty thing to boycott a guy who does as much for his community as this man does, but no one has argued against their right to do so. The real problem is as I outlined above, leaving false criticisms of his establishment simply because they don't agree with his politics.

All that being said, your second comment is still one of the most pants-on-head retarded in the thread:

The guy made an unwanted physical advance on the President of the United States. Not good.

Unwanted? It was cleared with the Secret Service beforehand. Do you really think some guy just walks up and lifts the President up in the air without clearance?

It's a fairly standard synonym for the American Taliban. I'm surprised you hadn't heard it.

I still prefer "teabaggers", since that's what they called themselves until someone told them what it meant.

You are either stupid or lying. The f-tards on MSNBC started that.

Wrong.

Or to quote National Review Online:

They asked people to send a tea bag to the Oval Office. One of the exhortations was "Tea Bag the Fools in D.C." A protester was spotted with a sign saying, "Tea Bag the Liberal Dems Before They Tea Bag You." So, conservatives started it: started with this terminology. But others ran with it and ran with it.

If conservatives had any balls, they'd take their licks and swallow the fact that they teabagged first.


Bloody William (can I call you "BW"?), I'll see those two links of yours and raise you this one.

This is the actual Freeper thread in which the Tea Party first organized online, a full week before the earliest event listed in the timeline in The Week's blog article that you linked to!

Note that they come up with the name "Operation Tea Bag" in the subject of the thread. The very Weeners was one of their own suggesting that they pick a different name! Several others who also knew of the innuendo meaning of "teabag" also warned them to change the name. But, the majority, even after having that meaning explained to them, continued to push for keeping the name, on the grounds that the innuendo would obviously be applied to their enemies,, not themselves!

Read the whole thread. It's not all that long (all of one page and only a dozen posts on a second page).

This is where it really started, and this is why it's sweet, sweet Karma to call them that.

timujin: s'okay, it looks like it has backfired, he currently has five stars on Yelp. 

There are only three one-star reviews and one of them says this:

The crust was terrible on this pizza! way too chewy and too much salt in the sauce. Gimme Papa John's ANYDAY

So at least they let us know they're an idiot.


That won't last too long. If he's not paying Yelp their "tribute", they'll hide all those good reviews, and just post the bad ones, with all the stars he earned with the good reviews moved to the "don't count" column. If he wants the good reviews back on the front page, all he has to do is sign up for one of Yelps advertising packages.

But you're right, you weren't the one who brought it up, I conflated your comment with that of others here who are putting up the "boycott" strawman.

You mean like the headline for this thread which was about the Tea Party boycotting him based on his his comment in the article about him being boycotted? That strawman?

The real problem is as I outlined above, leaving false criticisms of his establishment simply because they don't agree with his politics.
Then start a thread about people doing that in yelp. (use the submit a link button). Don't threadjack. This thread was about his being boycotted (hint: it is what the headline said and what was said in the article. NO mention of yelp and people leaving false criticisms in either the headline or TFA).


Unwanted? It was cleared with the Secret Service beforehand.

Do you have a citation that this was cleared ahead of time? I thought he was cleared for the meet and greet and the handshake and this was a spontaneous display.

Just as everyone has the right to either assist the boycott or ignore the boycott.

All this 'we would never do that!' from liberals is moronic. the homeless dude in OC has a point.

Somacandra: FTFA: Van Duzer's June bike-trek was part of his Van Duzer Foundation, and helped raise awareness for blood donation shortages. Founded in 2008 to support a local firefighter whose house burned down, the foundation has since raised more than $600,000, Van Duzer said. Van Duzer said he rode with a few kids from the Boys and Girls Club and met with U.S. Surgeon General Regina M. Benjamin to discuss blood shortages. Obama told The New York Times that Van Duzer's effort in promoting blood donations was part of the reason the campaign decided to visit his pizza shop.

Boycotting a guy who raises money and awareness for homeless firefighters and blood donation? shiat man, why not just kick a bunch of orphaned puppies, walk over to the nearest grotto and worship Satan while you're at it, assholes?


Wow, Tea-libans are getting tunnel vision. It's nice to hate everything Obama hates, but they have to make sure their laser focus on that doesn't get in the way and makes them look like total asshats for hating a person who is actually a better citizen than most of us.

//Don't take away someone's right to boycott, or devalue it


No one is talking about taking away anyone's "right" to boycott anything they choose.
However, when the reason someone chooses to boycott a business was because the owner of that business hugged the president of the United States and took pictures with him it is they who devalue that boycott.
Why? Because the reason they chose was STUPID.
Would it be too much to ask to rub one or two of the remaining brain cells together to come up with a logical reason to act before boycotting something?

CFL = because the owner is a homophobe bible-thumper (note that one does not always mean the other)
moron with the "english only" sign in the shop window = xenophobic racist (we all know EXACTLY who was being targeted by the sign)

stoli n coke: Have you seen the teabaggers? This boycott will last about a week.

The Hoveround Hellfighters aren't going to be able to resist a pizza joint just a few miles from their houses. 

Allah Snackbar, baggers.


Thanks for the pre-coffee lulz.

kingflower: Libtards had no problem destroying the business that Joe the Plumber built with no help from anyone....built it with his own two hands, and the Fartbongo lovers destroyed it and put a bullseye on the back of good old Joe.

Shameful!


Joe the Plumber is neither.

Dems boycott people for being and supporting assholes.

Republicans boycott people because they *are* assholes.

I think you are misconstruing a lot about Joe the Plumber, especially in assuming he had a business to begin with (which he didn't, partially the whole point he was hassling Obama). Of course "misconstrue" is standard operating procedure for you Derpwing types.

Nah, most right wingers know that we will have another 4 years of high unemployment, yearly trillion dollar deficits, declining job growth, rising gas prices and rising health care costs.


Thanks to Bush. Thats why Rob-me wont get elected.

That's because she's not a slut.

Isn't it funny how this pizza store owner supports Obama, but "Papa" John Schnatter complains that his cafetera-pizzas-gone-wild with buttery butter-like butter sauce will have to cost an extra 15 cents each, although he can somehow afford to give away 2 million pizzas? It's like one political party is friendlier to not large businesses, or....what are they called again?

I was driving through Scottsdale the other day and saw that some local sushi joint had put up a pro-Obama sign at an intersection - at Hayden and Mcdonald, I think. I can't believe how stupid that is, especially in the Valley of the Sun. Business owners are stupid to openly declare a political preference. Why would you want to alienate some percentage of your customer base? Not to mention that it should be illegal. Isn't that illegal? Shouldn't the FEC go after these companies?

The Broncos' performance was indeed quite poor last year, but on-field disasters aren't the only reason people are scrutinizing the team. According to recent news reports, George W. Bush's appearance at the Broncos training facility in early March is being investigated by the Federal Elections Commission. The rally included several hundred Bush supporters, a grinning Mike Shanahan (who gave Bush an official team jersey), several former players and a group of cheerleaders who chanted "No More Gore" (Off Limits, March 16). It seems that there are pesky rules about corporations endorsing clearly identified candidates.

I believe this sort of thing is illegal.

Somacandra: FTFA: Van Duzer's June bike-trek was part of his Van Duzer Foundation, and helped raise awareness for blood donation shortages. Founded in 2008 to support a local firefighter whose house burned down, the foundation has since raised more than $600,000, Van Duzer said. Van Duzer said he rode with a few kids from the Boys and Girls Club and met with U.S. Surgeon General Regina M. Benjamin to discuss blood shortages. Obama told The New York Times that Van Duzer's effort in promoting blood donations was part of the reason the campaign decided to visit his pizza shop.

Boycotting a guy who raises money and awareness for homeless firefighters and blood donation? shiat man, why not just kick a bunch of orphaned puppies, walk over to the nearest grotto and worship Satan while you're at it, assholes?

They're utterly terrible people who are doing everything they can to drive this country into ruin. I almost wish we really did have FEMA camps, so these people could stop ruining us. 

I see no mention of pizza. ....

tenpoundsofcheese: timujin: The original point of this thread and the point of the article, is that people are leaving fake reviews on his Yelp page,

No. There was nothing in the article about Yelp. He said he was being boycotted.

But you're right, you weren't the one who brought it up, I conflated your comment with that of others here who are putting up the "boycott" strawman.

You mean like the headline for this thread which was about the Tea Party boycotting him based on his his comment in the article about him being boycotted? That strawman?


Again, you are correct (twice in one day!) ... and I just realized what the problem is, I started reading the article attached to a similar, but uncommented, thread that was redlit which was focused on the Yelp interviews, not this one which had the bit about boycotting his store. Then I didn't shift gears when moving over to this one. So, yeah, mud, face, crow, all that.

And, since this is apparently my day for screwing things up:
When Blitzer questioned whether Van Duzer encountered any issues with Secret Service lifting the president, Van Duzer said, "I'm telling you, Wolf, just spur of the moment. We didn't plan it, we didn't have no communication with the Secret Service...I felt comfortable being able to pick him up."

so there's that as well...

Salt Lick Steady: zipdog: The difference between the CFA boycotts and the boycotts against this guy's pizza place is that the CFA boycotts actually happened. The pizza guy only said he was hoping nobody boycotted his restaurants. I do have to say though that subby gets an 11/10 on a trolling headline, and he should be legitimately proud of that here on fark.

"People are saying a lot of bad things and boycotting my restaurant," Scott Van Duzer, 46, told POLITICO. "

Reading comprehension isn't your strong suit, is it?


Somebody says something so it must be true. That's how it goes, right? I bet you read the newspaper and believe the editorial is gospel truth.
