Communist-Founded Group Brags About Glenn Beck Ad Boycott


The race-baiting Color of Change, a group co-founded by self-described communist Van Jones, who is President Obama’s green jobs czar, is gloating about getting more advertisers to stop running ads on the “Glenn Beck Program.”

Co-founder James Rucker, a former MoveOn.org organizer, reports on the Huffington Post that Wal-Mart, Best Buy, CVS, Travelocity, Allergan (maker of Restasis), Ally Bank, Broadview Security, and Re-Bath have decided not to advertise on Beck’s TV show.

It’s unfortunate that these companies caved in to a left-wing hate group.

As I told Newsmax, the extremist racial grievance group isn’t happy that Beck did several news packages on Van Jones.

Jones is a founding board member of Color of Change, but Color of Change doesn’t want you to know that. The group deleted references to Jones on its website and only restored them after we exposed the coverup.

Maybe having an avowed America-hating radical on the group’s board is bad public relations.
