Arby’s Has Done The Right Thing

One good reason why your next fast-food meal should be at Arby’s: Conservatives are angry that Arby’s joined the boycott of Rush Limbaugh’s show.

Curious how conservatives equate a decision not to advertise on Limbaugh’s show with suppression of freedom of speech. Do they really think that free speech means that people are obligated to pay money to support Limbaugh’s broadcast of bigotry?  Of course it has long been clear that the current conservative movement (which is actually an extremist authoritarian cult which has little to do with actual conservatism) has no understanding of either rights or of the free market in the real world. Conservatives strongly support the rights of business owners to do whatever they want–unless they disagree with their decisions.

    I was reading some of their comments on a conservative blog. Funny how, of all the advertisers that have dumped Limbaugh, Arby’s appears to be the only one they are really trashing.
     
    Why is it that more conservative business owners aren’t flocking to Clear Channel to take advantage of what now have to be discounted advertising rates? Could it be that they understand it will hurt their business dramatically. Imagine being, say, an insurance agent advertising there, and suddenly getting phone calls from your clients saying that they are canceling their policies because of his/her politics.
