Arby’s Has A Beef With Rush Limbaugh
Arby’s took to Twitter to say the company would not advertise on Rush Limbaugh’s conservative talk radio show.
What do roast beef sandwiches and politics have in common?
Nothing actually, but that has not stopped Hala Moddelmog the president of Arby’s Group, which operates the Arby’s fast-food chain, from bringing the two together. Arby’s announced last week that it would join Coca-Cola Co. in giving in to liberals’ complaints about the companies having any affiliation with conservative groups.
While Coca-Cola Co. opted to withdraw support of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), a group that promotes voter ID and “stand your ground” laws, Arby’s took to Twitter to say the company would not advertise on Rush Limbaugh’s conservative talk radio show. Limbaugh reportedly claims that the company never actually was a supporter of his show.
Arby’s announcement set the wheels in motion for a conservative Twitter backlash. The restaurant’s response to the criticism was to simply block conservative tweeters, which begs the question: Does Arby’s believe that only the liberal customer is always right?
In a recent article, The Right Sphere notes that Moddelmog made campaign contributions to John Edwards, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama during the 2008 election cycle.
