Two Ironies Weinstein & Hollywood Left Budweiser and the NFL Protests

There are two sto­ries out there that are wind­ing the irony meter to 11.

The first is the one that every­one is talk­ing about, that is Hol­ly­wood Left­ist and king­maker Har­vey Weinstein’s out­ing as a ser­ial Sex­ual Harasser by the New York Times.

The idea of course that a Hol­ly­wood exec would use his power to bed actresses etc is not much of a sur­prise (as they say, what else is a pri­vate island for?) but the real irony is his advo­cacy for Hillary on down and var­i­ous “women’s” causes that gave him a pass from those on the left who doubt­less knew this was going on and said noth­ing are now rush­ing to return the funds he gave em over the years although I doubt Obama will be in a rush to give back the $600K plus he bun­dled for him after all this time together.

I don’t know if Weinstein’s “I’m a lib­eral Maybe give me a pass” defense will save him, but Bill Clin­ton isn’t being shunned by any­one these days

I’ll give the last word to Iowahawk

Irony #2 involves this Budweiser

The same day that the Wall Street Jour­nal declared Cornoa the new King of Beers Bud­weiser is still tak­ing calls like this:

Anheuser-​Busch is ask­ing NFL fans for their opin­ion on the National Anthem issue. NOTE: This is legit­i­mate. I per­son­ally called and they have option 1 solely for this issue.

18003425283 (Option #1)

This is the num­ber to Anheuser-​Busch in St. Louis. They want to know how you feel about NFL play­ers kneel­ing dur­ing the anthem and if they should con­tinue sup­port­ing the NFL through adver­tise­ment dol­lars. When you call you will get an auto­mated response and it asks if are call­ing about the NFL. Press 1 and then leave your message.

Bud­weiser is run­ning ads like this dur­ing the Base­ball playoffs

Does any­one see the irony of run­ning ads with an “Amer­ica” can while the NFL is protest­ing dur­ing the national anthem and com­plain­ing about police and get­ting responses like this:

“To the brave NFL play­ers that ran into a hotel with an active sniper… Nev­er­mind, those were police officers…”

I don’t think the prob­lems for Bud­weiser and the NFL are going anywhere.

Irony #2 involves this Budweiser

The same day that the Wall Street Journal declared Cornoa the new King of Beers Budweiser is still taking calls like this:

Anheuser-Busch is asking NFL fans for their opinion on the National Anthem issue. NOTE: This is legitimate. I personally called and they have option 1 solely for this issue.

1-800-342-5283 (Option #1)

This is the number to Anheuser-Busch in St. Louis. They want to know how you feel about NFL players kneeling during the anthem and if they should continue supporting the NFL through advertisement dollars. When you call you will get an automated response and it asks if are calling about the NFL. Press 1 and then leave your message.

Budweiser is running ads like this during the Baseball playoffs

Does anyone see the irony of running ads with an “America” can while the NFL is protesting during the national anthem and complaining about police and getting responses like this:

“To the brave NFL players that ran into a hotel with an active sniper… Nevermind, those were police officers…”

I don’t think the problems for Budweiser and the NFL are going anywhere.
