The ‘Tea Party boycott of Ebony magazine’ that wasn’t

Earlier today, Twitchy reported that the current issue of Ebony magazine features four different covers and a call to repeal Stand Your Ground laws.

Somewhere along the way, a rumor started that the Tea Party had called for a boycott of Ebony.

One tweeter insinuated that Twitchy was the source:

Read the Twitchy post that’s linked and there is no call for a boycott of Ebony magazine. As a matter of fact, there has been no Tea Party call to boycott Ebony at all:

The article follows the trail of the rumor only to discover that the “boycott” is nonexistent.

Some are having a good time mocking the “Tea Party boycotting Ebony” false rumor, but it’s still a false rumor, albeit one that won’t go away:

Except, again, no:

We’re sure the party will keep going for some time, regardless of the facts.

  • Dirty Harry

    This is nothing more than a manufactured “controversy” and “boycott” designed to sell magazines. Ebony saw what happened when Rolling Stone put their boy wonder bomber on the cover (and people protested) so they’re trying to generate a phony “boycott”. I guess they need to move some magazines pretty bad…

    • JBDestiny

      Exactly right!

    • TheAmishDude

      Even more, blacks believe overwhelmingly that Zimmerman was guilty. It’s just an article of faith. There are no facts to worry oneself about.

      • Shelly

        Ummm no. Why don’t you stop being racist and say SOME blacks. Or most? I don’t believe Zimmerman was guilty and I’m black. You just need to stop it.

        • TexSizzle

          The word “overwhelmingly” indicates *most*.

        • J. Cox

          reading comprehension 101…please try it.

        • Damien Johnson

          I’m black and I agree with him. We need to stop with the PC “most” and “some” crap. It’s true that blacks in general believe Zimmerman was guilty. All I believe is the fact of the matter is, if Zimmerman is guilty then the evidence was just not there to support it.

      • IMPEACH_BOBO

        How right you are too, like the fact that trayvon was kicked out of his Miami school a few weeks before coming here to Sanford for having burglary tools on him & a baggie with pot residue in it !!!! Or how about the fact that trayvon when first spotted by Zimmerman was in the BACK YARD of a house that was just robbed 2 weeks before & trayvon was looking in the windows, thats a suspicious person to me This article just ignores all that & that is RACISM from this rag of a magazine !!!!!!!!

    • abudoggie

      Exactly. They started their own rumor to make themselves a nice little manufactured controversy. Gee. I wonder if the media will join in and help them. Hmmmmm.

    • lillymckim

      I wont give them any free press by stating any of these peoples names you know who they are or give this frivolous magazine any free press.

      But I will remember these same people when I purchase products with my hard earned money, when or if I buy those season basketball tickets, when or if I ever go to movies, buy music, anything that has to with any of these bigots & I will remember that some of the bigots haven’t got their FU money yet from the those ” Tea Party Types” (code) for “Crackers” per Charlie Rangel.

      I will remember, & I will fight back with my wallet.

    • aztectrumpet

      I never even heard of Ebony Magazine until I saw this article.

      • NRPax

        Really? I remember seeing it back in the 70s when I was a kid. That probably says a lot about their sales.

        • aztectrumpet

          Well I wasn’t around back then. Im only 23.

          • NRPax

      I never even heard of Ebony Magazine until I saw this article.

  • TheAmishDude

    The willful ignorance is astounding:
    (1) Stand Your Ground wasn’t an issue. It was only included in a perfunctory jury instruction by the judge which she was required to include. The defense never claimed it. They never wanted it. They never claimed it applied. It was a simple case of self-defense.
    (2) Blacks use SYG defenses far more than whites, with approximately the same success rate.

    • $2943864

      . . . but – if they can get rid of it, then they can say it is racist not to have it for blacks.

  • Billie Slash

    What’s the big deal?? These folks are Obama voters. They are predisposed to believing lies.

  • tjack

    When I look at those covers of Ebony I can’t help but pray that none of those teenagers get shot by the armed security guards at their private schools or in their gated community.

    • Damien Johnson

      A magazine being for black people doesn’t automatically make it racist. What would make it racist would be if it promotes a singular train of thought for black people to think, without a second opinion.

  • elliegrll

    I read the last line as “We’re sure the tea party will keep going for some time, regardless of the facts.”

    For a minute I was surprised by your honesty.

    • J. Cox

      Aww..another progressive lib that hates those who don’t jump on the group think,let big government do it for me bandwagon.We will be around a-lot longer than you and your socialist friends…but hey…keep on hating and blaming everything on others..worked so well thus far,just ask detroit residents.

    • tops116

      So, you’re admitting that you can barely read and can’t comprehend the meaning of one simple sentence? Yeah, you sure showed Twitchy. 😐

  • Just Another Guy

    It is a shame that they don’t want to shoot higher than being Trayvon Martin, a known drugged thug who tried to kill a man with his bare hands.

    • LoveCoates

      Right, black teenagers who are chased by strangers in the night are thugs and people who kill them who have been arrested for domestic violence, who have resisted arrest, who have been accused by his own cousin of child molestation, and who was fired from his job for violence are not thugs.

      Republicans will never get another black vote again, and they are well on their way to permanently losing Latinos and with them the White House. So I hope they keep up the racism: it’s workin’ out so well for ’em. #stupidpartyisstupid

      • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

        Ah, someone else who obviously didn’t pay attention to the FACTS of the case. How can you breathe for the sand that your head is perpetually stuck in…. dude?

      • Guest

        Omg so much dumb I. That post.

    • Phil McMorrow

      BO never lets facts get in the way of stupid things to say. In all 57 States, no less.

  • climate3

    ,Maybe, but it’s one HELL of a fun hashtag. LOL.

    • Shelly

      No, It’s not. It’s nothing more than a racist hashtag. It almost makes me ashamed to be black. If you take a poll, and ask Americans what race they felt was the most racist in 2013, they’d say blacks. Hashtags like #WhitePeopleBoycottingEbony, #HowToActLikeAWhitePerson, and #WhyIHateWhiteMen isn’t funny, but RACIST. On hashtags like this, all I see are blacks contributing to it. Then you have hashtags like #WhyIHateDarkSkinnedGirls and #DarkVsLight and It’s only blacks contributing to it. So now blacks are racist towards each other too! Even though I’m black, I would have liked to be born in the 1950s. Even though that was one of the worsts times for blacks. But back then, blacks were respectful, classy, their crime rate was way lower, the family unit wasn’t being destroyed by baby daddies and strong independent black women who don’t need no man. Then the whites give us freedom, and this is how we repay them? I’d be pissed off. And I’m still pissed off. It’s not funny. You’re parents clearly didn’t raise you right if you think racism is a joke. So why don’t you go sit yourself down, in a corner, face the wall, and just shut up until you learn some respect.

      • Michael Burch

        It is to bad that all this effort in this terrible trial has gotten so much national attention..It would be so much more productive to come up with solutions to the problems facing the black community.There is so much that the black leaders could do ..with the out of wedlock birth rate so high..with so many black men not stepping up to the plate and being the father figure..allowing all these young people to do ‘whatever’..is bad for the community..not to mention the mothers..I am helping to raise 3 young black grankids now..and have raised a black grandson…to bad children can not pick their parents..my grandson has graduated H.S, and is going to college and working full time…My granddaughter is carring a 3.9 grade point average in H.S. and she is on the trackteam,dance squad and flag team..all it takes is parental participation and setting the example by being the example…nothing magical here just a desire to see them do the very best they can

  • BoscoBolt

    Yeah, I see this rag at check-out lanes at my local Target. Let me just say that a magazine that features obama or Big Mo on the cover just about every other month, is probably not terribly popular with the Tea Party, or anyone with a brain.

    Only criminals will benefit from repealing “Stand Your Ground” laws. So the question that begs asking is “why is the black community so fervently in support of repealing Stand Your Ground laws?”

    • Dana Van Roekel

    The fact that a magazine is called Ebony is a messed up thing. I think I’m going to start a magazine called Creamy or Pinky. Or for us fair complextion folks: Sunburnt.

      How about Ivory after the McCartney/Jackson song?

    • pepjrp

      Yes, the name is very racist.

      • complexmve

        Ebony has been out since the 50s. It was a response to Life magazine featuring slices of Black America & pride you really couldn’t see nor read anywhere else. what’s so racist about that?

  • jbszeus

    All those celebs are Trayvon? Wow, do the police know that they were beating some dude’s head on the concrete after calling him a creepy ass cracker? Surely they’d like to know so they can make some high-profile arrests.

  • TJ

    When will Ebony Magazine put the real story of Emmett Till on the cover. It is just like Trayvon or something so they should have no problem putting the open casket photo on it. To see real racism that is no where near Trayvon and George.

    • D.C. Thornton

      Ebony, along with its sister weekly digest Jet, ran numerous articles on the Emmett Till murder between 1955-56. Jet even published the graphic postmortem photos.

      It’s a damned shame that Ebony’s editors chose to ignore their publications’ historic archives to make such a sickening comparison to Trayvon Martin. Founding publisher John H. Johnson is probably rolling over in his grave.

  • $2943864

    So instead of teaching black boys to not attack people for reporting them to the authorities when they are acting suspicious Ebony is making covers of black role models encouraging the despicable behavior? Ebony – teach them to go into their homes and call the authorities if they are scared of short pudgy latinos and not seek out confrontations with them.

  • jman69

    If Ebony was printed in cursive writing, there would be confused subsribers.

  • AZGunslinger

    If they are all Trayons then there is a lot more shooting that needs to be done. I guess they will be claiming they are all “Shaaliver Douse” next.

  • descolada9

    So, in an age where more and more print magazines are going out of business, let’s find a way to offend potential readers/buyers. Yeah, sounds like a legit business model to me.

LOL!

    As far as Ebony Magazine subscription base – Print Is Dead.

        Nope, not one of them had the time of day for him when he was alive and could have used some help, but after he’s dead, they are climbing over each other to use his death to get attention “Lime light” They lack self awareness or they would understand everyone sees them for the self important shallow phonies they are.

    So I want to see if I have this straight. The Tea Party, whom many consider to be racist, are boycotting a magazine that is marketed towards the African-American community. A magazine they would probably never read on their own accord since they’re racist. And the boycott of the racist Tea Party is going to effect the sales of the magazine they probably don’t read…

    And the left thinks Christian conservatives are the stupid ones.

  • Jeff H

    “We are Trayvon”. How stupid. They clearly are NOT Travyon. The differences:

    1) Trayvon is dead.

    2) Those models apparently have not yet been stupid enough to leave the safety of their backyard in order to circle back and confront someone in the dark on unfamiliar streets.

    3) They don’t appear to have been suspended from school for showing up with burglary tools and stolen jewelry, or for smoking pot.

    4) Trayvon wasn’t famous enough to make the cover of Ebony while he was alive.

    How do you identify a racist? They’re willing to profit off the death of a black man.

    • conservativemomma

      I agree! The truth is that a kid like Trayvon would not be allowed within 100 yds of one of these “famous” people and their precious kids. Instead of helping kids like Trayvon who are on their way to thughood they showboat for some elitist black mag.

    Someone tries to kill you, you try to kill them right back, as Cap’n Mal would say.

    If a 17 yr old girl had been out, getting the makings for Lean and was encouraged by her male friend to go back and beat up the “homo cracka”, then yeah, she might be dead.

    But I posit that your statement is a red herring. Never would happen. It is the males of the culture that Martin was immersed in that behave that way, not the females.

    But hey, nice try. Move along now.
