Ford's dissembly line

Perhaps trying to follow in the footsteps of its bigoted founder, Henry Ford, the Ford Motor Company has pulled its ads from all gay publications after a boycott threat from the American Family Association.

John Aravosis writes:


"Ford wants to dance with bigots, that's fine. But you don't get to do that in the year 2005 and remain a prosperous company in America... If they think they're above the fray and too big to be influenced by the mean homosexuals, they ought to give Bill Gates a call and see what happened to Microsoft when they endorsed outright bigotry in order to appease America's Taliban."
Aravosis is accumulating a list of phone contacts for a counter campaign on the order of past successes with Microsoft and Dr. Laura. Go [HERE] to take part. (Americablog)
