The RAM Armory is the online outlet for RAM Arms, a North Carolina manufacturer and retailer of firearms, ammunition and accessories.
Today, RAM’s Facebook page received some dishonest and obviously directed efforts to have them discontinue their advertising where it might be heard during the Rush Limbaugh show.
The first message was an obvious ploy and entirely deceitful in its approach:
In speaking with a RAM Arms spokesman, we learned that they “don’t use an ad agency and advertise directly through Clear Channel. That was the first clue that this was a deception.”
RAM Arms also told us that they had never been informed of, nor instructed anyone to cease advertising with Rush Limbaugh.
After the first message, RAM Arms immediately contacted Clear Channel to understand if this was a concerted effort or just one person trying to change the world.
After confirming with their advertising representative that this was obviously a political stunt to deprive a Conservative host of advertising dollars, RAM Arms decided to increase their spending with Clear Channel and is considering more spending in the Rush Limbaugh time slot.
Later today, RAM Arms received more messages. Most like this one:
I think you get the point….
Now things are looking much more coordinated.
While many of us wonder if these activities, designed to harm a legitimate business, are against Facebook’s terms of service, the rest wonder.. who is directing these fools?
While almost no Rush Limbaugh advertisers would back away from childish pranks like this, some will. Think about how Mozilla got tricked into ditching a CEO just for thinking like President Obama did about marital rights.
What the left is too short-sighted to understand is that they are creating a dangerous precedent. What happens when a new group decides that what they think is evil and they should be repressed into oblivion? A pendulum swings – both ways.
This is the aggressive, militant, fascist left. If you let them oppress some other group while you stand by, do not be surprised when they come after you and everyone else is just .. standing by.
