Amway Boycotted for Anti-Gay Marriage Donation

Aug 6, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: KSFO AM 560

After hundreds of thousands of people ate "mor chikin" last week to support the Chick-fil-A CEO's traditional-marriage stance, another prominent company has found itself in the crosshairs of a boycott sparked by its executive's marriage beliefs.

Hats off to Chick-fil-A and Amway. I support and applaud anyone willing to stand up and speak their piece without being politically correct. Too bad our leaders won't do it.

I grew up about a mile away from one of the Scamway founders, and remember that this clown fired up his helicopter EVERY morning at 6 AM, for his 35-mile commute to the Scamway factory.

He also wanted to kick his neighbors off of their lands and have a private helipad. He didn't get to do that.

Needless to say, scamway and its' founders are NOT well-liked in Western Michigan by most people.

Amway has a history of environmentally sound products. Amway has given many people work and a sense of community and neighborliness. It has encouraged family based business and enterprise.

All of these things conflict with social deviants, who depend upon social disintegration to enhance the number of victims available to them.

Of course they can say anything they want to - the government is not doing anything to them. The consequences they fact, either positive or negative, are from the public.

I went to an Amway meeting once and found the atmosphere creepy and preachy. I remember one speaker that had this sequined butterfly top that except for the cut looked like something a child would wear. I was just waiting for "making lots of money, hallelujah!" which are words that I believe don't belong together.

The KKK, are you a fan of them, too? They're the top example of "Not being politically correct," showing what a vapid, idiotic term "PC" is.
They stand up and speak their piece, and their piece is hate and bigotry. Nobody should applaud that.

A message from your local John Birch Society.

We want to disintegrate a society based upon bigotry and inequality, greed and hate. We have no victims, and Amway is about the greatest enemy the environment could possibly have, supporting every organization and candidate who OPPOSES protecting the environment they can find.

We don't buy it because, IMHO, their products are crap. They use "pyramid" selling and they are backed by a "church".

Oh no, a church? How awful.

Maybe if people got married in a church and not the courtroom our country would get turned around and back on track. But, ya know, those evil things called tradition and Constitution really get in the way of your f'd up agenda.

The first time I ever heard of Amway was 1976. "Ponzi scheme" was the first thing I thought of when one of their people explained their "multi-level marketing" plan to me. Amway is NOT a Ponzi scheme, but I have always thought that the company is evil and creepy, and I've never bought anyting from them, nor even met anyone else associated with them since the70's.

I know it's a multi-billion dollar privately-owned company, but I don't know who buys their stuff.

They remind me of Weyland-Yutani, Inc. Evil, creepy, and cult-like.

Amway is not the KKK. Perhaps they saw that the position the chicken outfit benefited them financially, and followed suit. An opinion is not necessarily hate because "you say so".

Such disgusting, uninformed libel cannot be tolerated. Amway has been at the forefront of a "green" movement since 1959, when introducing the first biodegradable cleaning products. That legacy continues today with sound relationships and approvals from the EPA on many of their products. They also operate huge organically certified farms to supply their nutrient products. They have huge international involvements of charity and volunteer work, impacting millions of people worldwide every year.

The sickness and inherent lying coming from the queer community is outrageous in itself, but paired with their unwillingness to mirror in any fashion aid to others and sound, disease free behavior on personal and community levels, the homosexual community stands against the sound, charitable and supportive standards of any humane society.

The queers of Western Michigan leave for their cult cities to infect others with disease and pander pornography.

Contrastingly, Amway gives fifty cents to United Way for every dollar its employees donate, which makes Amway the largest United Way donation source in Western Michigan. This helps people on hard times and builds a hopeful community the queers have left to infect others with disease.

Like I said, I grew up in that area, and know firsthand what their scams and schemes are. They are also connected with Prince Corporation, who begat good ol' Erik Prince, a known anti-gay and far-rightwing complete and total nutball who was attached with HALLIBURTON.

Hope you're independently wealthy. You'll need to be, because you have to buy all their sales trash, tapes, etc. You will lose what friends you have when you start bugging them to buy into a pyramid scam, which is what SCAMWAY is.

My younger brother wanted to get into SCAMWAY, and took to calling me. ALOT, and we live on opposite coasts. I finally politely explained to him that if all he wanted to do was bug me into trying SCAMWAY, then I'd just as soon not take his calls.

Thank Heavens he finally got the message and got out of SCAMWAY.
