This is something that I believe that all Conservative that value their Freedom of Speech should get behind. This group is called Media Equality and it is run by Melanie Morgan and Brian Maloney. They decided not to sit back and watch conservatives lose their freedom of speech. On this site is a list of sponsors who are trying to take Conservative news and our Freedom of Speech off the air. USAA was one of them and when the soldiers from all branches heard about this and decided to close their policies with them, they were hit hard and begged them not to close their insurance with them.
Here is an excerpt from the article:
After pulling its advertising from Fox News Channel’s Hannity show, insurer USAA now appears to be having second thoughts. That’s at least in what it tells those who call to question their decision.
Through the new political organization StopTheScalpings, of which this writer is a co-founder, several USAA customers who have phoned to complain report customer service representatives “begging” them to remain with the firm.
Longtime client Joan McDonald is one who is outraged over the decision to yank Hannity advertising. Saturday, she contacted the firm, asking “what about the soldiers in all of your ads, don’t they matter to you?”
McDonald, of San Francisco, did so after hearing about the decision through social media. She told the agent that in addition to pulling all of her insurance policies, she is urging her friends to do the same.
The customer service representative told McDonald, whose husband Robert was a decorated helicopter pilot in Vietnam before his death last year, reportedly “begged me not to call any of my friends.”
“There is a big meeting this weekend. Apparently somebody in the organization made a mistake, and they are trying to fix it,” McDonald says she was told.
“This doesn’t make any sense”, she told the Media Equalizer. “Sean Hannity has been one of the biggest supporters of our troops and our veterans. He prays with them, talks to them, and donates money to organizations that help them. Why is USAA doing this to the very men and women, and their families, who keep us safe?”
Since the move to end its Hannity sponsorship, the company has tried to mitigate the damage by also pulling ads from MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Show, while groups serving veterans have denounced the company in statements made to this publication.
How stupid does USAA think the people in the military are? What a slap in the face of the men and women who lay down their lives for our Freedom of Speech daily. I say #BOYCOTT USAA!!!! I also think we need to take a hard look at any advertisers that are trying to rob us of our Freedom of Speech. Like their page on Facebook it is called: The Media Equalizer. Like them and look for the sponsors. God bless you all!! Maranatha!!! 😀
Media Equalizer is a blog about the press that is unafraid to call things as they really are. Here is the video with Sean Hannity:
