Will Gays Boycott Coors? Again?
Most of you may be too young, but in the late 70’s the LGBT Community called for a boycott of Coors, that lasted for years!
While BOTH actor Gary Sinise, and FOX News Anchor Bret Baier,have cancelled, Pete Coors, the Chairman of the Molson Coors Brewing Company along with Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal and NYC Archbishop Timothy Dolan, are still planning to headlining the annual conference of the Catholic Legatus organization that harbors very hateful views on gays, supports “gay conversion” therapy and calls same-sex attraction a ‘disorder’.
The Coors family still supports extreme right wing anti-gay groups and politicians to this day through their foundations and individual Coors family members who profit from the brewery. Coors wants lesbians and gay men to buy their beer so they can use the profits to fund right wing attacks on our civil rights.
Beneficiaries of the Coors’ largesse include: The Heritage Foundatio. The Center for the Study of Popular Culture, David Horowitz’ far right wing group. Horowitz has written demagogically, blaming gay men for the spread of AIDS and The Council for National Policy, a group of far right wing anti-gay bigots include and have included Pat Robertson, Phyllis Schlaffly, Jerry Falwell, Oliver North, Gary Bauer, Ralph Reed, Ed Meese, Lon Mabon and Sen. Jesse Helms.
History of the facts.
