I’m not much on boycotts, but I’m certainly re-thinking my chip choices with this bit of news. Frito-Lay, the makers of Dorito’s brand tortilla chips, has decided to produce some limited edition, rainbow colored Dorito’s. And why, you might ask are they doing this?   In support of the ‘LGBT’ cause of course.

What makes this such a tasteless move on the part of Frito Lay (aside from the obvious pandering) is that proceeds from the sale of these chips are going to support an organization called the ‘It Gets Better Project’.  This organization was co-founded in 2010 by Dan Savage.  So just who is Dan Savage?

Savage is a far left wing bigot.  He is the poster boy for the extreme hypocrisy that is so prevalent on the left.  According to an article at Brietbart.com, Savage has a lengthy history of Christian bashing, Bible bashing and spewing nothing short of the most vulgar vitriol imaginable at any and all conservatives.

Savage has demanded Republican presidential contender Ben Carson to “suck his d**k.” He’s demanded the same from Republicans Herman Cain and Mike Huckabee. Savage went on a smear campaign against Rick Santorum to destroy Santorum’s reputation in Google searches.

But wait, there’s more:

[Savage] followed up that charming spectacle by stating he wanted to “f*** the s*** out of Rick Santorum.” He said that Republican gays were “f*ggots” who “grab their ankles, right on cue.” He tried to slander Saddleback Church Pastor Rick Warren by Google bombing a self-coined term, “saddlebacking,” meaning “the phenomenon of Christian teens engaging in unprotected anal sex in order to preserve their virginities.” He said in 2006 that Green Party Senate candidate Carl Romanelli “should be dragged behind a pickup truck until there’s nothing left but the rope.” He said in 2011, “I wish the Republicans were all f***ing dead.”

Can you imagine if a conservative were to make such statements about gays, Democrats, just about anyone?   Do you think Frito Lay would be supporting any group or organization associated with any conservative who made such statements?  Frito Lay should be ashamed of themselves for aligning with such a reprehensible individual as Savage.  Looks like I’ll be taking part in my first boycott.
