State Farm dumps Rob Schneider for anti-vaccination views

...
State Farm Insurance has dropped an ad campaign featuring the "Deuce Bigalow" star in a reprisal of his "Richmeister" character -- a.k.a. the "making copies" guy -- from "Saturday Night Live." The decision stems not from an objection to rehashed humor from the mid-'90s, but to Schneider's outspoken stance against childhood vaccines. 
...

Schneider has not taken the news lightly, posting a quote on Twitter attributed to George Washington implying that he'd been denied his 1st Amendment rights and thanking his supporters "who believe as I do that parents should decide what's in the best interests of their child, not Gov't mandates."

I'm glad these anti-vaccination idiots are becoming pariahs.

1. State Farm has now partnered with Blue Cross Blue Shield

at least in Chicago.

State Farm couldn't care less about his position, EXCEPT, when it comes to their bottom line.

And no Rob, no one is taking away your first amendment rights. State Farm isn't the government, and it's not obligated to pay you.

2. I dropped State Farm because they wouldn't drop ALEC

Still nice to see them do something right, though.

3. To Rob Schneider:

 

Say whatever you want to say.

The first amendment does not guarantee you a job.

Also, you are to comedy what Sarah Palin is to politics.

Roger Ebert would probably agree.

4. There's a vaccine that would stop him from acting childish?

No wonder he doesn't like it

6. Wing-nuts pulling out the 1st Amendment argument

is about as much of a "stone cold lock" as the sun rising in the east these days!

7. I think he should spend millions of dollars hiring the best Constitutional lawyers he can find

and sue State Farm until he's spent every penny he ever made.
