Politically-Motivated Raids Punish Gibson Guitar

On the morning of Aug. 24, federal agents raided Gibson Guitar Corporation factories in Nashville and Memphis on the premise that the use of wood from India that is not finished by Indian workers is illegal.  But that’s not all!  Even more disturbing facts have surfaced about the raid since then, leading many to conclude the raids were part of a politically-motivated operation.

Fox News Channel reporter John Roberts offered the most recent revelation about the case Wednesday (above).

In addition, we’ve learned several other details about the case from multiple news sources:

C.F. Martin Company catalog (PDF).

1.  Gibson employs non-union workers while the company’s main competitor, CF Martin Company, employs union workers;

2.  Gibson’s CEO donates primarily to Republican political candidates while Chris Martin IV, the CEO at CF Martin Company, donates primarily to Democratic candidates; and

3.  Several guitars in the C.F. Martin Company’s catalog (above) contain the same East Indian Rosewood as the guitars made by Gibson, according to Gibson officials.

Imagine how hard it must be for Henry Juszkiewicz, Gibson’s chairman and CEO, finding himself up against the Chicago thugs disguised as the Obama Administration.  It’s time for all Americans, especially those who play guitars, to buy Gibson at every opportunity!
