Republicans are 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.


LOL. Of course Gat shows up. You were one of the leading cheer leaders of boycotts against conservatives. What a farking joke.

Do you even realize how much of a partisan hack you demonstrate yourself to be?

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

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?



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?

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.

tinderfitles: 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.

I worry about the future of my party.

Lol. Yeah my dad spent a good portion of the last decade overseas in Iraq so he wasn't around for a whole hell of a lot when it comes to Bush 43, and sadly the only "political" exposure he got while there was Rush on the AFN. 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.

Ape_Stone: Maybe it has always been this diversive and vitriol filled, but I don't remember it being like this. Maybe since we are in a more connected world with a lot more access to each other I just see it more than I did a while back, but it definitely seems likes it worse than it has ever been.


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.

We're just unfiltered now, so it seems worse.

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.

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.

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.

I regularly get BBQ from a place with fairly right wing owners. Because the food is good and I could give a rats ass about their politics; it has nothing to do with our business transaction. Also? 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.

Meanwhile..... boycotts were called, by liberals, against the dude in Pennsylvania who put the English only sign on his storefront. It's all well and good to call for boycotts, but it's disingenuous to act surprised when the other side also employs boycotts.

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.

Just support Van Duzer if you want to show him support, and don't get tied up in knots if others disagree with you. Same diff with the Chick-Fil-A shiat. Support Chick-Fil-A, and don't pitch a biatch if others disagree with you.

And that has been pretty much the extent of the "boycott" here locally in as much as there isn't one. As I said upthread, I live here and our office buys his pizza. So far outside of some jerks on local message boards saying they aren't going to buy his pizza, that has been the extent of it locally. If I pass his store tomorrow and I see a bunch of people outside holding signs and singing God bless the USA I'll put a little more credence in a boycott. His business looked great today.

rewind2846: MyRandomName: Demetrius: Way to support small business.

Stay classy, GOP.

LOL. Liberals boycott Rush, any business that advertises on Rush, Komen Foundation, etc... They are the heroes of the liberal world.

Some conservatives boycott.. "stay classy." What intellectually inconsistent shiatheads the fark liberal elite are.

"Liberals" boycott organizations and people who do and say assholey things.


Eye of the beholder



/The Susan G.Komen was libs eating their own.
//Don't take away someone's right to boycott, or devalue it
///Just countervote with your pocketbook

Igor Jakovsky: 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.

And that has been pretty much the extent of the "boycott" here locally in as much as there isn't one. As I said upthread, I live here and our office buys his pizza. So far outside of some jerks on local message boards saying they aren't going to buy his pizza, that has been the extent of it locally. If I pass his store tomorrow and I see a bunch of people outside holding signs and singing God bless the USA I'll put a little more credence in a boycott. His business looked great today.


The guy is a Republican.
I give him a lot of credit for his ability to generate a lot of PR and get a lot of people to donate to his causes and even try to buy from him from out of the area.
Brilliant guy.

I thought the Chick-Fil-A crap was kinda out of hand. The CEO was pretty stupid to let the public know about his political affiliation, but that was just poor business sense. The whole protest/anti-protest crap was for the simple minded who have nothing better to do with their lives than care about a chicken sandwich.

That being said, the teabagger response to some guy showing his affection for the president of the US just shows how un-American they are. Courting treason in fact. But then, what else would anyone expect from some idiotic teabagger?

Teabaggers seem to hate affection and hate America. I wonder what else they hate?

cameroncrazy1984: tenpoundsofcheese: Are you saying the person in AZ never went to Florida? Got a citation for that?

His review. Did you read it?


so I will take that as a NO, you don't have a citation that he never ever went to this restaurant.

tenpoundsofcheese: jpo2269: 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.

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.

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.

"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?
