The beverage industry is attempting to fight back against NYC Mayor for Life Michael Bloomberg’s absurd restrictions on soda. But it isn’t easy to do in a quasi-dictatorship:
Last year, the group retained SKD Knickerbocker, an influential consulting firm that produced advertisements for Mr. Bloomberg’s mayoral campaigns, to advise it on political strategy in New York.
When a Knickerbocker spokesman, speaking for the beverage industry, denounced the mayor’s plan last month, Mr. Bloomberg’s camp was taken aback, according to several people with direct knowledge of the situation.
Allies of Mr. Bloomberg conveyed their anger to the firm. The company still represents the beverage association but is no longer working on the soda-ban issue.
Similarly, a highly effective ad featuring a guy who bought from Ford rather than Government Motors or Chrysler because the former didn’t let itself get bought out by Big Government was squelched on orders from the Obama Regime.
This illustrates the difference between communism and fascism. Fascism allows some private companies to exist, but bureaucrats still call the shots.
The Founding Fathers and those who died fighting Nazis weep in their graves.
