Miller Continues to Spin; 3rd Version of Illegal Alien Sponsorship Story

By Debbie Schlussel
Yesterday, we presented you with two different conflicting messages sent out to readers of this site by Miller Brewing Company regarding its $30,000 sponsorship of an illegal alien rally. Now, there’s a third. You’d think that if the company was going to lie, at least it could get its story straight–and stick to one.
The first claimed Miller did not sponsor the illegal alien rally, this past Labor Day weekend (when in fact Miller DID sponsor it). The second version did not disown the rally, and instead, not only admitted to it, but supported relaxing immigration laws for amnesty. Now, there’s a third version that claims Miller not only did not sponsor the rally, but did not authorize the use of its trademarks by the rally attendees.
Here’s the third version, sent to us by reader Kenneth R.:

Subject: Miller’s trade marks Re: 12417387
Thanks for contacting us. . . . Miller Brewing Company does not support illegal immigration or any other unlawful act. We are not sponsoring this march and we did not authorize the use of our trademarks in associaton with this event.

But reader Kenneth R. is an attorney, who asks Miller–if it truly opposes the use of its trademarks for the illegal alien rally–why it does not take legal action (as it usually does in the slightest of cases) to protect against trademark infringement.:

If the use of your trademarks in association with the event was truly unauthorized, then perhaps Miller ought to sue the march organizers for trademark infringement.
It is noted that Miller has in fact actually sued its competitors for using the word “Lite” to market their beers [Miller Brewing Co. v.> Falstaff Brewing Co., 655 F.2d 5 (1st Cir. 1981)], and has claimed that a beer called “Highlite” would be confused with Miller’s own “Miller High Life” trademark [Miller Brewing Co. v. Carling-O'Keefe Brewing Cos. of Canada, 452 F. Supp. 429 (W.D.N.Y. 1978)]. Miller has even crossed the border, presumably legally, and gone into Canada to sue Labatt for its advertising slogan “All you want in a beer” because of feared confusion with Miller’s slogan “Everything you always wanted in a beer. And less.” [Miller Brewing Co. v. Labatt Brewing Co., 36 C.P.R. (3d) 400 (Canada Trade Marks Opposition Board, 1991)].
Miller’s contentions that it was not sponsoring the illegal alien march and did not authorize the use of its trademarks in connection with the event would be far, far more credible if Miller would send its attorneys to court to exact its due remedies from these nefarious trademark infringers.
Miller is talking the talk. The public needs to see Miller walk the walk!!

Amen! Kenneth R. sent that to Miller, and called the brewer’s bluff. We’ll see if the company responds. Don’t hold your breath. Miller–the Official Beer of Illegal Aliens.

To the Miller Brewing Company…..”Adios, Muchachos.”
In English, it means, “So long, you enemy of America!”

I hope Miller goes bankrupt.

i can see it now… Miller’s new ad campaign slogan, “It’s Hammered Time! Get out, drink and drive! We’ll bail ya out plus pay the fine!”
if they’re gonna support illegal alien law breakers, they might as well aim for a wider base too.

This is crazy
we want Miller to go bankrupt so that thousands of people lose their job, millions lose their pensions and 401k over a $30k donation to a march. What is the big deal, if they make a donation to a march. AMERICA is the land of free and home of the braves, and if anything they are upholding America values.

I guess you do not care if Miller has been encorouging the One World Order because this is what this is really all about.
Illegal Immigration is part of the larger movement to eliminate borders and equalized wages in America with the third world. That is why Multi National companies are doing this.
If we let them get away with hiring and backing Illegal Immigration, then the NAFTA highway will be built and millions of people in the trucking industry will find them selves without jobs with the North American Union and the NAFTA superhighway.
It is being built as we speak in Texas. Hutchison Whampoa will transport its containers from Mexico with Mexican truck drivers directly to Kansas eliminating the ports on the west coast.

This issue of corporations backing Illegal Immigration is a grave threat to our country no matter if it was just 30k this time.

I almost forgot to mention that Miller has a long history of support for the Illegal Immigrant lobby.
Read it for yourself:
June 14, 1996
Miller Brewing Company Rep: Ladies and gentlemen it is important that we develop the future Gloria Molinas (“we’re going to pay them back”), the future Hilda Solis’ (we are all Americans whether you are legalized or not), the future Esteban Torres’ (“we can cause government to fall..”) the Antonio Villaraigosas (Mexican Reconquista extraordinaire).
We’ve got to find ways to finance additional brown faces going to Sacramento and to Washington.

Wow… hook line and sinker…seems like you are buying what everyone is selling.
I remember years ago, Al Gore said that the Republicans wanted to poison the air and water and kill your children…or something to that effect. Was that true too?
One World Order my ass.

Your screen name abtly describes your post.
Here are some more facts about the new world order “my ass”:

Finally, since you sound like a conservative maybe you will believe Phyllis Schlafly who wrote about GWB and his plan for a new world order:
http://www.eagleforum.org/column/2005/july05/05-07-13.html
Stick your head in the sand at your own peril. I voted for GWB but did not learn about this plan until after the elections. I made a mistake voting for him. He is a traitor.

one world order? If you believe in that bullshit called the Bible, then the One World Order is real
“And I saw a beast coming out of the sea. He had ten horns and seven heads, with ten crowns on his horns, and on each head a blasphemous name.
2The beast I saw resembled a leopard, but had feet like those of a bear and a mouth like that of a lion. The dragon gave the beast his power and his throne and great authority.
3One of the heads of the beast seemed to have had a fatal wound, but the fatal wound had been healed. The whole world was astonished and followed the beast.
4Men worshiped the dragon because he had given authority to the beast, and they also worshiped the beast and asked, “Who is like the beast? Who can make war against him?”
5The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise his authority for forty-two months.
6He opened his mouth to blaspheme God, and to slander his name and his dwelling place and those who live in heaven.
7He was given power to make war against the saints and to conquer them. And he was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation.
8All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beastÔø?all whose names have not been written in the book of life belonging to the Lamb that was slain from the creation of the world.[b]
9He who has an ear, let him hear.
10If anyone is to go into captivity,
into captivity he will go.
If anyone is to be killed[c] with the sword,
with the sword he will be killed. This calls for patient endurance and faithfulness on the part of the saints.
The Beast out of the Earth
11Then I saw another beast, coming out of the earth. He had two horns like a lamb, but he spoke like a dragon.
12He exercised all the authority of the first beast on his behalf, and made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose fatal wound had been healed.
13And he performed great and miraculous signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to earth in full view of men.
14Because of the signs he was given power to do on behalf of the first beast, he deceived the inhabitants of the earth. He ordered them to set up an image in honor of the beast who was wounded by the sword and yet lived.
15He was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that it could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed.
16He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead,
17so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name.
18This calls for wisdom. If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is man’s number. His number is 666.”
If you don’t believe in this holy mumbo-jumbo shit, then realize that there are who do and would do anyhting to speed up this tub of bullshit called the Rapture.
