Big Business Bullies BBQ Baron

Those who defend states' rights and Southern heritage realize that private companies have the right to run their businesses as they see fit. That's what the free market is all about. And sometimes that means being punished simply for defending what you believe.

From the AP:
    The South Carolina Supreme Court has tossed out a lawsuit filed by barbecue magnate Maurice Bessinger accusing several grocery store chains of unfair trade by not selling his sauce on their shelves.

    Nine chains with over 3,000 stores between them removed Bessinger's mustard-based barbecue sauce in 2000 after he raised the Confederate flag over his restaurants in protest of the General Assembly's decision to take the Confederate flag off the top of the Statehouse dome.
Thanks to short-sighted merchants who are ignorant of history and are afraid of being politically incorrect, many of you are missing out on some of the best barbecue sauce you'll ever taste.

Fortunately, you can order it online here. Definitely money well-spent. No grill should be without it!

Mr. Shelton, I'm sure you're right when you describe the merchants in question as short-sighted and ignorant of history and afraid of political incorrectness. I daresay they're probably afraid of a great many things. However, I'd like to think that if I were the SC Supreme Court, I'd have sent that lawsuit packing also. Shouldn't a merchant -- even a shortsighted and ignorant and cowardly one -- be able to choose to sell any BBQ sauce he pleases, or none at all?

I agree completely. That's why I wrote what I did in the opening lines. Bessinger has the right to fly the Confederate flag, and the stores have the right to not carry his sauce. Too bad, though. It's dang good stuff!

I'm sorry; you did open your post with just that. I should read more carefully before typing a hasty comment. I hope Mr. Bessinger sells a whole ton-o-sauce to many happy BBQ enthusiasts.
