Proposition 8 Blacklist/Boycott List

Posted on 16 November 2008 by admin

I’m getting a lot of traffic from Google from people looking for the blacklist/boycott list for prop 8, so I thought I’d do a post to summarize some of the available resources, both on this site and a number of others. If you’re wondering what you can do on top of boycotting, Stop8.org is a good place to find out.

But first, there are a few companies that I’ve personally decided to avoid: Marriott (including Renaissance Hotels, Courtyard by Marriott, Fairfield Inn, TownePlace Suites, SpringHill Suites, and Ritz-Carlton Hotels) and Cinemark Theaters (including Century Theaters, CineArts, and Tinseltown Theaters).

“They don’t have a right to blacklist and boycott our supporters”

Posted on 14 November 2008 by admin

Seems like the press conference by our opponents went off without too much of a blip in the media, as far as I’m seeing on the web.  Did you see anything on the news?  Please comment.

I don’t know where they get off saying we don’t have the right to blacklist and boycott.  I doubt I’ll be seeing many of them dining at Hamburger Mary’s anytime soon.  Likewise, I don’t want to be in the midst of creepy, perma-smile wackos who pity me as a sinner as they gloat about their win.  And then use the profits from my patronage to further injure me.

Bill Marriott Tries to Distance Hotels from H8

Posted on 14 November 2008 by admin

If you ask me, I don’t want to sleep in a hotel that has a Book of Mormon in the nightstand.  They’ve also banned smoking at all their locations.  But I digress. Read on for excerpts from the Salt Lake Tribune and the response from AmericasBlog.  Marriott brands include Ritz-Carlton, JW Marriott, Marriott Hotels, Renaissance, Courtyard, Residence Inn, SpringHill Suites, Fairfield Inns, and TownePlace Suites.

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.

El Coyote Ugly: LDS Owner Talks to Gay Patrons

Posted on 13 November 2008 by admin

My friend Sam posted video of the LDS owner of El Coyote, a restaurant with heavy gay and liberal minded patronage, responding to her donation to the Yes on 8 campaign, trying to avert a boycott.  When Sam asks her, “would you be willing to make a personal donation to repeal the amendment?”  The truth then comes out as to where she firmly stands.

Theater Director First Casualty of Gay Backlash?

Posted on 12 November 2008 by admin

There have been a lot of news stories about the Sacramento theater director, who is Mormon, and his $1,000 donation to pass prop 8.  The New York Times reports on his resignation and further discusses the controversy.   The director said in a statement:

“I understand that my choice of supporting Proposition 8 has been the cause of many hurt feelings, maybe even betrayal,” Mr. Eckern said. “It was not my intent. I honestly had no idea that this would be the reaction.”

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.
