WHAT IF MAURICE BESSINGER WERE A LEFTIST? | 2000-09-23

Wal-Mart and Sam's are taking Bessinger's BBQ sauce off their shelves because he is "controversial." They insist this boycott is not because of his specific stands, but because he has made himself the object of controversy, which they avoid.

If Bessinger were a LEFT WING protester, they wouldn't remove his sauce. No matter how extreme left a business goes, its products are never off-limits. This applies only to the right.

Not only that, but everybody KNOWS that this sort of suppression only applies to the right. The reason for this is that the right has no guts, and spends most of its time on its belly, groveling and apologizing.
