Don’t buy from these Fox News advertisers: Progressive, Capital One, Applebees, IHOP, Match.com, Angie’s List, How Advisors

As reported by Media Matters, Tell Advertisers: Drop Fox:

Fox News is a malevolent and destructive force.

Not only is the network’s programming becoming increasingly extreme, deceitful, and racist, but Fox News is also functioning as Donald Trump’s personal propaganda operation. As the network helped fuel hysteria over a migrant caravan thousands of miles from the border and Fox host Sean Hannity joined Trump at a campaign rally, a wide range of leading media voices began calling for corrective action.

Financial Times U.S. National Editor Edward Luce, conservative columnist Max Boot, Hollywood Reporter Editor-at-Large Kim Masters, producer and director Judd Apatow, and many others called out Fox News’ remaining advertisers for continuing to support the network.

They all recognized the same thing: Fox News will not change unless forced. We need a persistent effort, starting with pressure on Fox News’ major advertisers to reject the network, until it actually imposes and enforces some baseline standards.

Right now, companies that do business with Fox News are financially supporting bigotry, dangerous lies, and harmful conspiracy theories. Since the network is a propaganda operation, these companies are also financially supporting and enabling Trump’s politics.

Enough is enough. Take action. Tell advertisers to stop sponsoring Fox News.

Here are some of Fox News’ current biggest advertisers:

• Progressive
• Capital One
• Applebee’s & IHOP (Dine Brands)
• Match.com, Angie’s List, and Home Advisors (IAC Interactive)

Please contact them and ask the advertisers and ask them to stop advertising on Fox News. Meanwhile, don’t buy from them or patronize them.

Anti-immigrant “Blood and Soil” leaflets in Clyde Hill

A friend emailed me:

On my driveway today was a ziplock bag with a melted Snickers bar and a leaflet that says, “KEEP AMERICA AMERICAN. REPORT ANY AND ALL ILLEGAL ALIENS THEY ARE NOT IMMIGRANTS THEY ARE CRIMINALS CALL 1-866-DHS-2ICE. BLOODANDSOIL.ORG Honestly, I am shaking and thoroughly disgusted that fascists are at work here. The phrase ‘Blood and Soil’ expresses a racist and nationalistic ideology originating in pre-Nazi Germany and is now used by white nationalists in this country. In my opinion it expresses ideas antithetical to our American experience and ideals.

A friend said she collected three blocks of these leaflets on 24th, 23rd, 22nd and 21st st NE between 98th (Clyde Hill Elementary) and Bellevue Way NE:

Keep America American: Nazi leafleting in Clyde Hill, WA

 Someone on nextdoor.com reported that the Bellevue Police Department stopped two men who were distributing the leaflets. It’s unclear whether the police detained them or asked them to stop.  Even hate speech is protected under the First Amendment.

Someone else told me that it was Clyde Hill police, not Bellevue police, who stopped the people, who were driving an old green Ford and throwing the leaflets at houses and into bushes.

Someone pointed out that such racism is promoted by Tucker Carlson on Fox News:
