The Dumbest Thing I’ve Seen All Day Gets Dumber Still

Turns out the dumbest thing I’ve seen all day was even dumber than I realized. Pepsi deleted its asinine Kendall Jenner/Black Lives Matter ad from YouTube not because it was possibly the most embarrassingly awful commercial ever recorded, or because it glorified a movement associated with race riots and the murder of police officers. They pulled it as a further show of obsequiousness toward black supremacists, who love bullying so much that they even bully their servile admirers with claims of “appropriation.”

The astonishingly vile New York Times, which sides with Black Lives Matter against civilization for real, not just to sell soft drinks to idiots, offers this appalling take:

Pepsi has apologized for a controversial advertisement that borrowed imagery from the Black Lives Matter movement, after a day of intense criticism from people who said it trivialized the widespread protests against the killings of black people by the police.

According to the Times et al., the fact that police are inevitably sometimes forced to kill black criminals justifies any extreme of lawlessness on the part of black mobs.

“Pepsi was trying to project a global message of unity, peace and understanding. Clearly, we missed the mark and apologize,” the company said in a statement on Wednesday. “We did not intend to make light of any serious issue. We are pulling the content and halting any further rollout.”

As for the visual reference to BLM leftist Ieshia Evans in Baton Rouge (where BLM rhetoric inspired the murder of three police officers), the Times approvingly quotes Elle Hearns, a former organizer for BLM:

“It has no relationship to the courage that that woman showed,” Ms. Hearns said, referring to Ms. Evans. “That woman standing in the middle of the street was not trying to be a peacemaker with the police. She was being defiant. She was actually resisting.”

She was resisting by volunteering to be arrested, because she knew her fellow travelers at publications like the Times would use the photo to propagandize against the police and against American society in general.

Pepsi’s gravest sin was portraying demonstrators as annoyingly trendy but basically benevolent fuzzbunnies who want to make peace with the police. What BLM actually does is loudly call for police to be murdered, with predictable results — and that’s the way the liberal establishment likes it. So Pepsi had to tuck its tail between its legs and kill the ad.

Watch the ad with the original soundtrack at The Independent, and it will be obvious why I would drink out of a mudpuddle before I would drink Pepsi.

If only this pratfall would teach advertisers to steer clear of moonbattery.
