The Budweiser Story
(not a joke)

This is TRUE!

How Budweiser handled those who laughed at thosewho died on the 11th of September, 2001...
Thought you might like to know what happened
in a little town north of Bakersfield , California
After you finish reading this,
please forward this story on to others
so that our nation and people around the world
will know about those who laughed
when they found out about the tragic events
in New York , Pennsylvania , and the Pentagon. On September 11th,
A Budweiser employee was making a delivery
to a convenience store in a California town named McFarland.
He knew of the tragedy that had occurred in New York when he entered the business to find the two Arabs, who owned the business, whooping and hollering to show their approval and support of this treacherous attack.
The Budweiser employee went to his truck, called his boss and told him
of the very upsetting event! He didn't feel he could be in that store with those horrible people. His boss asked him,"Do you think you could go in there long enough to pull every Budweiser product and item our beverage company sells there? We'll never deliver to them again.'
The employee walked in, proceeded to pull every single product his beverage company provided and left with an incredible grin on his face .

He told them never to bother to call for a delivery again.
Budweiser happens to be the beer of choice for that community. Just letting you know how Kern County handled this situation.

And Now The Rest Of The Story:

It seems that the Bud driver and the Pepsi man are neighbors. Bud called Pepsi and told him. Pepsi called his boss who told him to pull all Pepsi products as well!!! That would include Frito Lay, etc. Furthermore, word spread and all vendors followed suit! At last report, the store was closed indefinitely.

Good old American Passive-Aggressive A$$ Whoopin!

OK probably not true. But he point is that this is how our economy is supposed to work. It is found that a business is doing something immoral, corrupt, just poor customer relations, etc, etc. This news is passed on and the business is boycotted. People dont realize that we as consumers are meant to be the final say in our economy. The point is that a story like this could easily happen, if American got their collective heads out of their asses and took responsibility for their place in this economy things would be different.

Right, but what a heartwarming story, huh? With the "Arabs" thrown in there as a chum. Let's look at that use of stereotype to activate a deeper prejudice which makes the whole thing plausible to some? Lovely.

You have to admit, as much as it is trying to garner good feelings for Budweiser for doing the right thing, it also incites hatred towards Arab-Americans. I don't remember hearing a single story of any American celebrating the September 11 attacks
