Disemploy harder

This is almost inconceivable from an American perspective, but it is what having an amenable authority on the side of free expression and free association looks like:
Hungary's government told ministries and other state institutions to cancel subscriptions with Magyar Telekom on Thursday in a row over the telecom operator's decision to end a sponsorship deal with a pop singer over his remarks about women.

The singer, Akos Kovacs, is known to support the ruling centre-right Fidesz party. The government, which has made waves in recent days with a conservative take on gender equality, said Kovacs had been subject to unfair discrimination by Magyar Telekom, a subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom, over remarks in which he said it was not women's role to earn as much as men.

Magyar Telekom severed links with Kovacs after the singer's comments to private television channel Echo TV on Sunday, in which he also said that women had better "fulfill the female calling by belonging to someone, bearing a child for someone."

Magyar Telekom said in a statement to news portal index.hu on Wednesday that the remarks were incompatible with the company's diversity principles and it was withdrawing its sponsorship deal with Kovacs.

"Our company does not think the spirit of the artist's interview ... is compatible with our group's beliefs and values, Magyar Telekom said. "Magyar Telekom is committed to ensure equal opportunities for women and men and sustain sexual equality in all circumstances."

The controversy was discussed at a government meeting on Wednesday, government spokesman Zoltan Kovacs - no relation to the singer - told state news agency MTI on Thursday.

"The government was shocked to learn about Telekom's action, which we believe violates both the spirit and letter of the Hungarian constitution," Zoltan Kovacs told MTI.

"It might be possible in Germany but we cannot accept anyone to suffer discrimination for his opinion and views."

Zoltan Kovacs said the review of contracts with Magyar Telekom was under way, adding that the termination of 103 contracts at one ministry had already been initiated.
Once again, Hungary leads the way. Don't tolerate SJWs. Don't support SJW corporations. If you're in procurement or you're making a decision about a supplier, don't choose those who support thought-policing.

Always hit back harder. They bring a knife, bring a gun. Or three.

No No No...

You need to take the libertardian position: declare a property right in the media and insist on the freedom of a big monopoly to decide what and whom to air.

Magyar Telekom is a private company and, therefore, has a right to decide what to broadcast. Those who don't like it can start their own media monopolies.

It's a wonder why Russia bans foreign ownership of media.

Just look at PP's donor list. I also think it would be quicker to just list the companies that are NOT left wing. They've all been pushing the Poz pretty strongly lately. Because we don't have nearly enough commercials showing clean, upscale gay white couples proudly announcing their impending pregnancy (delivered via surrogate in India) to their approving, teary-eyed parents. I strongly suspect the (no doubt soon to be coming) Campbell's commercial where "George" shows up at the home of his interracial family on Christmas Eve dressed as "Georgina" to become a venerable holiday classic right up there with the "Peter Comes Home For Christmas" Folger's coffee commercial and the Ronald McDonald skating in the park commercial.

[Ps. Vox, just got off watching a Jack Black movie, goosebumps. One of the best fun films I've seen in a long time. Now this is irony writ large. The Western Main stream media is largely a horror story work in purpetuum fiction. But tucked away in isolated places like Hungary and off beat movies a little bit of Chivalry and eternal enduring good is creeping back into the light of life day. or something like that. good writers will see the awkwardly constructed point to the post]

It's usually not very hard to find out if your favorite snack food has a long list of strong regressive SJW talking points.

I tend to look at their customers and employees. As Vox had pointed out, SJWs tend to point and shriek. But they're also herd animals...

They never shut up about which companies they love as well as hate.

Think Apple, Starbucks, Levis, Whole Foods.

Private company has a right to free expression and it looked like the gov't was being politically correct by ending the contract.

But then gov't might have the prerogative to like or not like a supplier for reasons other than its capability.

Not that I don't agree with the sentiments of the singer....

What? Women are designed to give birth and raise children?... and they have breasts to do what?... No... to feed and nourish a baby?... really?... come on now. And you say they have a limited window of fertility?... that's not so... it can't be?

And it's the males role to protect and provide for the family?... stop it!... you're way off base... you're not serious? Are you?

I thought it was both their roles to work for fifty plus years in a small cubical for a big corporation until they die in waiting in line for government healthcare? Isn't that their fate? You know... to be a corporate serf? Aren't they supposed to work their entire lives in a futile attempt to accumulate enough "capital" to stop working while the fiat central banking system debases (i.e. steals) what meager savings they manage to accumulate? Aren't they really just milk cows for the financial elites? Isn't that their true role in society? Yeah... that's it... don't look out your window and pay any attention to the birds and the bees. You don't have time for that. Get back to work.

This is where I part ways with many of the commenters on this site, who are far more anti-statist than I.

While many see things as "The less state the better," I can envision a traditionalist/nationalist/choose-your-term state as being an active protector of noble values against disloyal elements within the nation.

This magnificent move by the Hungarian government enacts my ideal.

Though I certainly grant that it is rare almost to the point of being unknown in the post-1945 world.

A list? A list of leftist companies is useless. Name ANY company and it will have a leftist bent. You're not going to boycott anything. Example, soft drink companies, everyone of those are pro-fag marriage. Now soft drinks aren't a necessity so you can stop drinking them. Now what happens when you buy gasoline? All of the energy companies are pro-left, are you never going to ride in a vehicle again?

Make a list of rightwing business to buy from, it's more useful.

Well now, we don't want to focus on true monetary discrimination like the fact that a small cartel of banks have a monopoly on the counterfeiting of the world's reserve currency. No sir... what we need to focus on is the fact that in Spokane (or wherever) Johnny makes $0.20 more an hour than Suzy.

Also, it's truly atrocious that Trump wants to keep Mohammedians out of the US! Much more atrocious than the USG invading and bombing the snot out of the Middle-East for over twenty-five years resulting in the deaths of millions. That's ok. Bombs and death of millions in the Middle-East good. Talk of limitations on immigration really bad.

Do you understand the logic now?
