Last week, a Coca-Cola ad ran during the broadcast of Glenn Beck’s program in the UK. As with other advertisers, participants in the StopBeck effort sprang to action.
We kindly requested that they follow the responsible action of well over 100 other former advertisers and refrain from advertising on Glenn Beck’s show.
Well, your tweets and messages paid off. Today, Coke advised that their ads will no longer be run on Glenn Beck’s program.
Statement from Coca-Cola sent to the StopBeck effort:
Hey, you’re correct, our 10 second ad did run there once…You won’t see us there again…Thanks for bringing it to our attention…Best!
Great work all! See your tweets and emails do matter.
Onward we go…
Thank you Coca-Cola! I'm going to buy more Coke!
Enjoy your Coca-Cola in the Gulag.
Stop Drinking Coke Campaign Underway!
What are you so afraid of? Factually prove him wrong!
So, basically your existance as human beings revolve around trying to get one person off of the airwaves. Kinda pathetic. So I guess only people who agree with your viewpoint have “freedom of speech.” Ironically, if Glenn Beck didn't exist, you wouldn't exist as a website. And you call him a loser.
If Coke has gone political, it's time to quit drinking the crap.
Jesus, you people are pathetic. And you treat Coca Cola like they're some kind of hero for doing this. If you're going to waste this much time on a cause, here's an idea: instead of trying to completely kill free speech, why don't you work on something that actually MATTERS–like cancer, or the War, or poverty, or illiteracy. Wait, I know why . . . because that other stuff would actually require real effort.
Move out of your parents' basement, kiss a member of the opposite sex, apply for a job, and get some perspective. Ultimately, the thousands of hours you pour into trying to 'stop' someone who doesn't agree with you will be completely wasted, when the next Glenn Beck pops up somewhere else. That, in a nutshell, is the beauty of free speech. God willing, America will never run out of it.
Bye bye Coca Cola products. No more of my money will be spent there.
Wow, for a group of people who tout tolerance and inclusiveness, your open venom against someone with which you disagree is impressive. Great job! Love that tolerance! Remember, in any revolution, all counter revolutionary voices must be silenced. Way to win for our side. Liberty was over rated anyway. I just wish someone would tell me which arm to raise this time. Oh, wait, NAZI's didn't quash free speech right?
Oh good god, how ridiculous – like he cares what you think! LOL
Whatever happened to 'free speech'? If you don't like it, don't listen.

I believe in Free Speech…. but you are never free to tear our country apart through outright lies and misinformation. Glenn Beck hardly had this crazy streak on MSNBC, just at Fox News., who's new slogan has switched from being “Fair and Balanced” to being, “The Most POWERFUL Name in News” get a clue dude. If Free speech is dead or dying, it's Fox News and other news organizations like it, that are holding the knife and slitting the throat of Free Speech, by abusing and distorting this right.
This is great news because I'm addicted to Diet Coke and can't afford rehab right now. Seriously, keep doing the Lord's work! Thank you!
You people suck, and I will boycott every advertiser who pulls ads from the Glen Beck Show…
“Ironically, if Glenn Beck didn't exist, you wouldn't exist as a website. And you call him a loser.”
That's parallel to saying “If slavery hadn't existed, the Underground Railroad wouldn't have either. Those guys were losers.”
I could give a flying crap about Glenn Beck and his lies that are believed by the complete idiots who parrot him. But when Congressmen start to parrot him on the house floor and parrot the wrong set of facts, it is no longer free speech… it is downright criminal! Check this out… if you like Glenn Beck, tell me how this makes you feel http://politicalcorrection.org/video/201006230004http://www.factcheck.org/2009/09/bogus-brazilia...http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/21134540/vp/3791282...
I will bet Glenn's fans will gloss right over this one… how embarrassing. Come on, defend your dirt bag, you dirt bags!
ha! the only ads I see on Fox are for medicare provided equipment, gold scams, incontinence medication, disability advocates and viagra… reflects their audience, old, white, conservative, dysfunctional men.
here you go dirt bag, you dirt bag lover… proven factually dead wrong!http://politicalcorrection.org/video/201006230004http://www.factcheck.org/2009/09/bogus-brazilia...http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/21134540/vp/3791282...bet you don't respond because not only are you an idiot but you are delusional coward.
This isn't about “Free Speech” nor being intolerant – this is about someone who is on a channel labeling themselves as news and spouting nothing but hateful speech, historical distortions, and complete lack of responsibility. The modern political parties (1962 to now) are basically for Fascism (which is corporate governance) or individual freedom and duty (you are free to do these things, but you have to do these things to keep them). Can you guess which parties are which? Hint, it's Republican and Democratic. Remember, FACISM is the corporations BEING the government, which the entirety of Fox News is advocating for, and SOCIALISM/NAZISM is the elite controlling everything (no voting, police state, people being sent to prison for no reason at all – see Russia at any point during the last century). And just to throw it in: 1) You can't “catch” gay. It just doesn't happen.2) Liberal/Progressive isn't dirty. You do want your government and society to grow with the times, right? I mean, you like having running water and television, don't you?3) Socialism is why you have the potential for a retirement account, health insurance, and home loans. Where do you think that money comes from, the bank CEOs?
One of two things… nobody is using track back or all of the posts supporting Glenn Beck are from the same nut job. Given the pattern of responses, I suspect the latter.
Here is an inquiry for the retard here… let's not make this about Coke-Cola and stop beating around the bush. If you support Glenn Beck and Fox News lies, just say so, don't mince words. First acknowledge the BOLD FACE LIE the congressman parroted and then say you support liars.
Take it one step farther and just admit you, like Glenn Beck is a racist pig.
aaaaahahaha! akaincognito handed you your ass… you fail dlfish!!! lol
because he is a bold face liar… need proof?
Glenn Beck is Cancer…
What happened to not buying products from companies who pay to promote tyrannical theocRAT propaganda like Beck and WTFUXUPNEWS? It's called freedom of association – part of the First Amendment. If I don't like what someone says and there are advertisers paying that fool to say that stuff, I can exercise my right to free speech and freedom of association, tell that company that I won't buy their products for promoting hate propaganda. Then that company's executives get to decide if they want to continue funding hate or if they would rather spend their advertising dollars elsewhere. If they decide to continue to pimp hate speech, I don't have to buy their products and I get to tell them I will no longer pay for hate speech. See here's how it works – I buy the product, the company uses the profits from my money to pay for advertising on a show, and their money pays the salaries of the guy talking on the show – so if I continue buying the product, I am paying the salary of the dude on the show. Now why would I do that if I think the dude – in this case Glenn Beck – is an racist heterosupremacist tyrannical theocRAT? And why would you pay him?
The only thing Glenn Beck has in common with the founding fathers is they were slave owners and Glenn Beck is a racist.
It isn't even about Glenn Beck but about that God Awful Fox News BS, they allow him to spew his hate and they are allow distortions, lies and fraud to be broadcast. A great case in point is ACORN. What Fox News did to ACORN is criminal, not free speech, criminal and they will be sued for slander/libel this time.
Even when it is apparent that they (Beck, Hannity, Fox, its all the same right wing fringe nut crap) are lying. Their freakish zealot viewers just laugh it off, it doesn't matter because they are looking into the mirror for they are racist, idiot douche bags just like their Fox Super Heroes. Fox can do know wrong to stupid people. And yes, 1/2 of America is an an odd combination of dumb, uneducated or belligerent, they are called conservatives, republicans, tea party nerds. They are are whte, old, less educated, live in rural areas, and male.
Most funny is they are so stupid they are getting duped by Rupert Murdoch, the UNAMERICAN Global Elitist, lol…. LOSERS!
And all this talk about socialism (code word for they hate the black president) and patriotism… makes me want to puke. We have free speech so keep on chirping, every time you peep, the rest of the world understands how stupid you are. And for that, I am happy for free speech.
*SIGH* What point does it serve to resort to name-calling? It just makes you look like a fool no matter what side you're on.
Right…because Glenn Beck's show happens to be one of the most watched news shows, surely his ignorant follewers are so ignorant and redneck they can't figure out how to work that…that…what is it called? Interweb?
I agree with should not spend advertising money to support hate groups like Beck
YOU GOTTA READ THIS: I've met with and know people who become something of their own imagination… once their start talking to a captive audience…..The mere fact they are allowed to keep speaking, physiologically/ subliminally draws interest in what they have to say (CAPTIVE AUDIENCE). I have witnessed people who have no worldly understanding of the humility in this universe. I call them natural born idiots. When these natural born idiots get a captive audience, they start to think they know the world, they are wise men, they have a gift, they are important and they can do amazing things for this world. Like start a movement! Sounds familiar? Glen Beck is a natural born idiot who is having the biggest cerebral masturbation of his life. He is literally stroking his brain through his skull with his own hands….less any knowledge…. If you think he is doing it for the money you are dead wrong…. This natural born idiot got the chance to stand up in front of a captive audience one day and started to spew up all the self-talk he did from all the years of drinking….. I know people from other walks of life like this idiot……they are on the verge of being clinically certifiable. They believe in their own truth even if they are wrong, wrong, wrong….. The real tragedy however is the captive audience. Do they buy into it….Captive republicans mostly I’m suspecting!
Beck has the free-speech right to spout as does anyone, sane or insane. I consider Beck in the later category so his verbal garbage is falling on deaf ears here.
I too love Glenn Beck. We should feel sorry for these people because they are afraid. They don't listen to Glenn, they only spew what the Dumacrats say since they have no thoughts of their own. The communist call them useful idiots. Let's pray for them
I'm gonna go buy a coke
Beck spreads hate! You know Charles Manson had his followers too. Look what happened to them.
Glen is one of the great loons of mediocrity in our country …..making the us an inferior country run by racists idiots…..
you are a dumb ass a merican hillbilly little thought goes into you…..it is all about a black man in the white house ….get it whitehouse..
Steve… you’re a liar. And one who can’t spell very well. I work for a vending company and that is not how it works. You can call the vending company to remove machines but not Coke. If you actually made a call, you’d know that.
there does not equal their or they’re
Have a nice day!
This makes me glad I drink Coke. Now I would like to know about their closest competitor Pepsi.
Looks like I stop buying diet coke
Well “stupid is as stupid does”. I don’t mean this in a mean way. Ignorance of what is really going on in the world and the lies we are getting from all governments is rampant. Fox may lean right but there is an army of left leaning stations. They spew just as much hatred and I have done my own reserch as Beck suggests (he always tells you to look deeper yourself) and have always found truth when really checked.
Unfortunately we have a society that has to be entertained also, thus he may go overboard at times to get the point across. Our forefathers faught long and hard for us to have our freedoms and yes, there were awlful things such as the 2 bombs over Japan but they at that time (talking to war time Japanese, General etc.) were willing to die themselves and take any and all Americans they could with them.
Does this not sound familiar with a group who is out there now in the Euro/Asia ares whose goal it is to take out Iseral and America? I guess people like to live with the idea of the Gov,.t will take care of me. When all the workers refuse to work as they have know incentive anymore to reach for these wonderful USA dreams because (hey, that guy does not work and it’s rich mans job to take care of us.
Remember if there are no worker bees and the nest runs out of provisions because hey is that not the Rich man’s job to take care of us. OOOps! no banks left as no deposits, no buidings, no credit needed, bank collapes, stocks collapes. It takes a village according to Hillary , but what do you do when the village is falling and tearing each other apart . Good-Bye America! We forgot what we had . We are a group of selfish people anymore who look out for ourselves only and forget it takes us all to be vigilent. Here comes the enemy and our weak selfish people have forgot who our real friends were. Good-Bye America. He tried to warn us, Ayn Rand tried to warn us but,
we have to go skiing this weekend.
