“Miller Time” is OVER!: Beer Company Sponsors Illegal Alien Rally

Add Miller Brewing Company to Anheiser-Busch on the list of brewers that support illegal aliens.
As we noted previously, , to the detriment of U.S. citizens who want to go to college but can’t afford it. Now, reader Dave H. alerts us that Miller is sponsoring an illegal alien march in the Chicago area, this weekend. Now we know what Miller meant by “the high life.” Clearly, execs at this company are, indeed, high. . . on something.
Miller gave $30,000 to make the illegal alien event happen, according to The Chicago Tribune. Here are more of the outrageous details:

“Miller Time” Officially Over: Beer Company Sponsors Illegal Aliens

As demonstrators march from Chinatown to House Speaker Dennis Hastert’s (R-Ill.) Batavia office this weekend, they will have Miller Brewing Co., as a sponsor. The brewer has paid more than $30,000 for a planning convention, materials and newspaper ads publicizing the event.
The support of a major corporation for a controversial political cause shows how fierce the competition has become to woo the growing market of Latino consumers.
For Miller, the march offered a special chance to catch up. This spring the brewer drew the ire of pro-immigrant forces over contributions to U.S. Rep. James Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.), who sponsored legislation that would crack down on illegal immigrants. That prompted a short-lived boycott by some Latino groups.
Now, march advertisements feature not just the organizing committee’s trademark blue globe but Miller’s logo and a Spanish translation of its “Live Responsibly” slogan, a company effort to build goodwill among Latinos.
But this march is no Cinco de Mayo parade. The politically charged event will promote a controversial plan to end deportations and offer legal status for all 11 million to 12 million undocumented immigrants. That creates potential pitfalls for any businesses lending support, experts say.

You bet it does. Don’t buy Miller. And get this, even the “Miller girls” are helping illegal aliens:

The presence of Miller at a welcoming reception the day before the Aug. 12-13 planning convention raised eyebrows.
The convention brought together labor unions, anti-war groups, immigrant service organizations and even socialist political candidates.
Hours before bashing NAFTA and U.S. foreign policy, participants at the Aug. 11 reception mingled with the Miller Girls, the company’s public relations ambassadors, amid a display of Miller logos.

Ban the Miller Girls. Guys, you now have to stick to the “Swedish Bikini Team.”
Incredible chutzpah from a company whose patrons and customers are mostly American citizens who want to protect our borders:

That Miller was involved in the first place is one measure of the growing power of immigrants. After the boycott announcement, the company approached march organizers to try to find common ground, and agreed to back the march organizers’ efforts.
Miller is also bankrolling informational ads in Voces Migrantes, or Migrant Voices, a community newspaper in Chicago, and has promised scholarships for area Latinos.
Mathew Romero, the company’s local market development manager, said Miller felt it was important to speak out against Sensenbrenner’s legislation.

“Miller Time” is now officially over–Dead On Arrival for Americans who care about America. No more “Tastes Great, Less Filling” for us.

I’ve been giving my friend h*ll for years for drinking Coors Light while I proudly drank my MGD. Looks like I’ll be switching to the Silver Bullet now.

After reading this piece, I would hope all Americans will cease buying anything produced by Miller.
They are selling out the American people and if you purchase their products you are helping them do so.
Miller Brewing Company Traitors one and all.

NO AMERICAN Interests Anymore, Even more reason to dump the stuff.
Deal with South African Breweries keeps corporate headquarters here
Miller Brewing Co. is being sold to South African Breweries PLC for $5.6 billion, a deal to be announced Thursday that gives the Milwaukee-based brewer a new owner, a new name and a sharper focus on selling beer.
The combined company will be renamed SABMiller PLC after the sale is final, which is expected to occur by July.

For fun, here’s a ‘scientific’ study to help with your transition from Miller. (You always knew the “SuckPoint” but , just couldn’t define it).

Remember that very first job you had as a kid? It may have been selling newspapers, mowing lawns, or working at McDonalds. My question is, just where in the hell are our kids going to be able to find the kinds of entry-level jobs that we did if the greedy bastards at Miller and the many other Corporate money worshippers have their way?
They want illegal aliens for those jobs now. Things are going to get rough in this country, wait and see! I’ll never put another penny in the pocket of Anheiser-Busch again. But even more importantly, we have GOT to keep the pressure on our political representatives or they will sell us out!

Just another case of corporate pandering. The problem is… a boycott would be effective only if thousands of people emailed, or wrote letters via snail-mail. These companies are just like politicians. They only recognize LARGE blocks of consumers (and voters). A few hundred letters is like pissing in the ocean.

Next time any of you guys need a job that is currently occupied by an illegal alien, feel free to apply. How many of you are willing to wash dishes at a restaurant, work in the fields all day, or do other menial labor?

    Very well said corkscrewy, I feel proud of you. This people is only good for talking bush… about inmigrants while they live like coach potatoes just waiting for their social security chekcs. This country doesn’t belong to anyone and if you think that U.S.A belongs to native Americans you all should start packing and leave, bunch of racists. Inmigrants deserve the same oportunity that your “inmigrants” parents had. Instead of waisting your time leaving your racist comments hurry up and go take the diswasher jobs that illegal aliens are taking away from you. Some of those diswasher go to College after work and they totally deserved the scholarship that this damm racist loser mentioned aboved. He is probably jellous because he had all the oportunities as an American Citizen and did not even finished high school because he did not have the determination that most inmigrants have. Go to hell.
