¡Qué Tontería!

Miller Brewing is sponsoring a march for illegal aliens in Chicago, Illinois.

Marchers had to duck into fast-food restaurants for water when they first took to Chicago's streets in support of illegal immigrants five months ago. At the next two marches, family-owned grocery stores offered free bottled water from trucks emblazoned with their names.

This time, 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.

I am still a little surprised that such a large company would support illegals and their advocates, but at least I found out now, instead of after purchasing refreshments for this weekend's family and neighborhood events. I've purchased Miller products instead of Anheuser-Busch for over a decade-and-a-half, but this move on Miller's part has cost them my business.

If Miller's sponsorship of those who violate our nation's laws makes you angry, you can use their handy-dandy contact form to let them know just that. I have already done so.

Also, Michelle Malkin has a list of Miller's beer brands in her post on this topic, just in case you want to avoid purchasing any of Miller's beers.
