    This is now the fifth advertiser to do so since he claimed that Obama is “a racist” who harbors a “deep-seated hatred for white people.”

    Thank you Popeye for this post, now I know to be sure and never give any business to GEICO. I would not have known that if not for this post.

    Considering your political persuasion and love of Faux, I wouldn't have expected anything less.

    That's the GEICO Gecko.


    Does this mean you're not going to sign the petition?

    I think it's time to start picking on Geico customers.

    oh no :( they have a right to protest and boycott. It would be better to call or write to Geico and tell them you do not support them when they cave for the left. That is what I will do anyways.

    Yea, for GEICO it is about time that the responsible advertisers step up to the plate and stop supporting the 'rabid hate mongers' of the screaming right wing nut jobs. GOOD FOR THEM!!!

    The festering angst for the resentment about our first black president needs so little fueling that the likes of this 'rabid racist' screams about our President being reverse racist while he can release his years of 'red neck attitudes' onto the air ways under the disguise of being 'free speech' and non-racist.

    Seems as though there is an epidemic of 'creeping wood work dwellers' that crawl out of the dark corners when they hear someone shout..."look this black guy/this Hispanic woman is being a reverse racist".

    SMOKE & MIRRORS and just a hidden agenda about keeping the status quo as it has been for 200 plus years...and the screams just keep getting louder! :eek:

    I don't think GEICO is caving in. I just don't believe they feel comfortable advertising on a show where the host refers to the POTUS as a "racist"..

    They haven't pulled their advertising from Faux News, just from Beck.

    Its ok with me if they pull it but I think its good if I write them and tell them I dislike them now for pulling it. I think they are caving to the crazy left.

    I would expect the left to do the same if they pulled ads on Keith Olbermmans program.

    Time to avoid using GEICO I say!

    Higher rates and bad service is what GEICO stands for!

    Never use them!

    Beck is doing God's work by standing up to Obama. NO, OBAMA IS NOT GOD. OBAMA IS NOT GOD.
