Obey, or else!

Here we go: the rapid response brigades are launching their acts of repudiation.  Gee, sounds familiar.  Where else have we seen these tactics employed?

Question of the day:  if anyone deemed "morally reprehensible" deserves to be boycotted, shouldn't Castrolandia be at the top of the list?    Correct answer: Of course not, fool...  that would mean an end to the duplicitous elasticity of  liberal ethics!

Calls to boycott Applebee's after CEO threatens hiring freeze and layoffs over Obamacare

By JOHN CLARKE
11 November 2012

Move over Chick-fil-A, fast food is getting political again.

Papa John's came under fire this week when CEO John Schnatter floated a plan to cut worker hours to reduce spiking employee health care costs under the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare.

Now, Applebee's is being boycotted after a major New York area Applebee's franchise owner Zane Tankel threatened a hiring freeze and possible layoffs as a result of the president's healthcare plan.

Twitter immediately erupted with calls for a boycott.

'So far I've seen Papa John's and Applebees threatening to fire people since their choice didn't win the election. Disgusting on either side,' read one tweet.
'BOYCOTT APPLEBEES NOW,' read another. 'Add @Applebees to the list of unpatriotic businesses who are firing people because Barack Obama won,' tweeted another.

The Twitter uproar is in response to a Fox News interview Thursday with Zane Tankel, chairman and CEO of Apple-Metro, which owns 40 New York-area Applebee's restaurants.
"We've calculated it will [cost] some millions of dollars across our system. So what does that say -- that says we won't build more restaurants. We won't hire more people," Tankel said.

    I am going out to eat tommorow with my daughter. If she didn't ask multiple times to go to the Greek Diner it would be Applebees.

    Don't know why but when you eat at the same place for 20 years and know the owner its like home.

    I will eat at Applebees after work.

    Funny, but for two people who eat home so's to save up for cruises, we've got this desire to go dine out at Applebees.

    The Left is hate. But the Left is also moronic, unteachable, dumber than a busted chainsaw. For all the decades the Left has been trying to subvert Americans, they've never learned this:

    Americans always root for underdogs and really, really detest bullies.

    These punks now target Applebees? They've never heard of Chik-Fil-A? The left defines 'unteachable'.

    Anything they target, we'll support best we can.

    Chusma on parade. Is this uplifting or what? Oh, yeah, I want to work to save these dirtbags from themselves. I want to knock myself out to give them freedom and democracy, so they can use it to elect people like Obama. Sure I do. I mean, who wouldn't?

    It would be fun to see businesses now trying out either anti capitalist ads or anti Obama tactics. That would be a good test of what are really the popular ideas these days.
