Hoehn Motors (San Diego) and Cinemark Theaters

Posted on 13 November 2008 by admin

In the talk of boycotts, Hoehn Motors in San Diego and Cinemark Theaters are two fairly important potential targets.  The L.A. Now blog at the Los Angeles Times mentions them in covering the state of the boycott.

Hoehn Motors is a massive chain of car dealerships in the San Diego area. Robert Hoehn made a $25,000 donation to Prop 8.

The LA Times also says:

There has also been talk of a boycott of the Cinemark movie chain, whose CEO gave money to “Yes on 8.” This could have a major effect on the Sundance Film Festival, which uses the chain’s theaters to show movies.

DailyKos breaks out the brands under the Cinemark umbrella and adds further commentary:

Cinemark owns 2700 screens in 13 countries in North and South America, including the brands Cinemark, Century, CinéArts, and Tinseltown.

What did these folks think would happen when they gave public financial support to a hateful proposition to strip peoples rights?  As the LA Times story says, the experience for Hoehn started BEFORE the election.  This isn’t just reaction.  How can anyone blame a gay person for not using these businesses?

Targeting Mormons Unfair?

Equality California estimates that Mormons donated as much as $20 million to Prop. 8, while the Knights of Columbus, a Catholic fraternal group, gave $1.25 million to the effort and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, $200,000.
