BOYCOTTING GROWS AGAINST BUSINESSES SUPPORTING PROP 8

LA Times - The boycott effort against businesses whose owners backed Proposition 8 appears to be picking up steam. Dozens of groups have sprouted up on Facebook.com urging its members to boycott businesses -- restaurants, jewelry stores, car-repair shops and more. Other activists have gone onto Yelp.com and other business rating sites, posting messages telling users which restaurants donated to the "Yes on 8" campaign.

There has also been talk of a boycott of the Cinemark movie chain, whose CEO gave money to "Yes on 8." This could have a major effect on the Sundance Film Festival, which uses the chain's theaters to show movies.

The actions have alarmed supporters of Prop. 8, which banned gay marriage in California. . .

Go git 'em! "Organize! Organize! Organize!

In the words of Saul Alinsky:

“Change means movement. Movement means friction. Only in the frictionless vacuum of a nonexistent, abstract world can movement or change occur without that abrasive friction of conflict.”

AND

“Once you accept your own death, all of a sudden you're free to live. You no longer care about your reputation. You no longer care except so far as your life can be used tactically to promote a cause you believe in.”

AND LAST:

“Always remember the first rule of power tactics: Power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have”

Yeah the gay hissy fit continues.....And if you don't like it, boycott gay businesses, like we are doing to pro h8 businesses. You might just get a buzz cut or a mullett (sp?) for your next haircut.

For anyone who has any "concerns" over boycotting businesses over their support of prop 8... please remember:

those same people who are complaining that we are "picking on them" and/or discriminating against their freedom of religious expression have been boycotting McDonalds, Disney and every other company that has been supportive of the LGBT community over the years. They were ALSO threatening to publish a list of all the companies that financially supported the No On Prop 8 Campaign and were planning on urging a boycott against those companies... they went so far as to send all of them letters DEMANDING that they provide support to Prop 8 or face a boycott... can anyone say "extortion"?

If you are using a tactic to target the gay community.. don't complain when that tactic is used against you for your bigotry.
