Get Woke, Go Broke: Procter & Gamble

When it comes to corporations that aggressively ram moonbattery down our throats rather than give us a reason to use their product, Procter & Gamble tops even Nike.

One P&G ad pushes the phony leftist dogma that blacks are oppressed by the evil white man. Another ad denounces men for manifesting toxic masculinity.

Not content to merely annoy their customers, the social justice warriors at P&G seem determined to make them vomit. This is accomplished through gut-wrenchingly unappealing odes to morbid obesity and transsexual freakification.

Now we see the effect this foolishness has on the bottom line:

Procter & Gamble has reported a net loss of $5.24 billion, prompting speculation as to whether a boycott of the company’s Gillette shaving products after a divisive ‘woke’ ad campaign hit the company’s bottom line.

The reference here is to the insulting toxic masculinity ad, which some genius must have thought would compel men to buy Gillette shaving products.

The commercial alternated between echoing glib feminist talking points and bashing men, while also featuring a clip from left-wing news outlet The Young Turks.

Then again, maybe they weren’t even trying to sell shaving cream. Maybe they just wanted us to know what moonbats they are. If so, they succeeded.

It has now been revealed that Procter & Gamble took an $8 billion writedown on its Gillette shaving business, contributing to “a net loss of about $5.24 billion, or $2.12 per share, for the quarter ended June 30.”

Couldn’t happen to a nicer company.

Most Nauseating Procter & Gamble Ad Yet

In corporate America these days, not even the moonbats running Procter & Gamble can outmoonbat the other moonbats — not with the moonbattery dial already turned as far as it will go to the left. Yet they need to push the envelope, so as to appear even more woke than other corporations. So they opted to make their ads ever more nauseating.

They triggered the gag reflex by producing infuriating propaganda in tearful service of the lie that privileged Persons of Politically Preferred Pigmentation are somehow oppressed in modern America. They again had us choking back barf with the infamous Gillette ad attacking supposedly toxic masculinity.

Then vomit splattered onto monitors when they took to Twitter to promote exhibitionist obesity on behalf of radical feminism. But they were just getting warmed up.

Now this:

A new Gillette advert shows the moment a loving dad teaches his transgender son how to shave for the first time.

By “transgender son,” they mean deranged daughter who has managed to grow a beard, presumably thanks to the marvels of modern pharmaceuticals. She goes by the name Samson Brown.

‘Thank you so much Gillette,’ Samson commented underneath the new advert. For allowing me to share such an important moment in a man’s life with my father.’

Position a barf bucket before proceeding.

How this will help sell shaving products is unclear. Any male moonbatty enough to find P&G ads appealing is probably a millennial trendoid sporting a neckbeard.

Mr Reagan demonstrates the horror of what moonbattery has done to us by contrasting this emetic propaganda with a Gillette ad from saner times.

Procter & Gamble Exploits Morbid Obesity

It isn’t easy to cultivate an edgily woke corporate image. Even the most outrageous moonbattery soon seems commonplace, so you constantly have to push the envelope. Procter & Gamble pushed black supremacist propaganda to the point of parody. Then it pushed politically trendy hatred of masculinity just as far. Now comes morbid obesity:

By featuring plus-sized model Anna O’Brien, P&G guarantees it will never be accused of the thought crime of body shaming. An added benefit is that Gillette ads won’t get banned in London subways, which happened to Protein World ads featuring women who keep themselves in shape and thereby violate the tenets of radical feminism.

Condemning obesity is now regarded as a form of bigotry by the same illogic used to condemn condemnation of homosexual perversion. This brand of moonbattery requires denying the fact that in both cases, voluntary behavior tends to be involved — as are disastrous health consequences.

In utopia, no one will be allowed not to have something conspicuously wrong with them, and everyone will wallow in it.

Whether the leftist scolds at P&G really believe in the nauseating ideology they ram down our throats is debatable. Just as likely, they are cynically exploiting moonbattery to generate controversy — i.e., free advertising — in the belief that there is no such thing as bad publicity.

Procter & Gamble Ad Triggers Gag Reflex

Whole generations of Affirmative Action and all manner of favoritism for blacks and still we have our faces rubbed in mendacious, pernicious, yet perversely self-righteous crap like this:

What the hell does imparting neurotic white guilt and encouraging blacks to blame their problems on whites have to do with selling household products?

P&G Sides With Trans Militants Against Biology

Unless someone starts pushing back against their relentless bullying, every last corner of civilization will be deformed so as to comply with the tyrannical demands of the tiny minority of mentally ill individuals who “identify” as members of the opposite sex. This pushback will never come from moonbattery-addled corporate America, and certainly not from Procter & Gamble, which is infamous for its ostentatious PC posturing (e.g., pushing black oppression balderdash, denouncing “toxic” masculinity, and celebrating morbid obesity and transsexual freakification). Eagerly folding to LGBT militants, P&G now submits to the progressive dictum that it isn’t only women who get periods.

Via Daily Mail:

The maker of Always sanitary pads has given in to claims of discrimination by transgender men and removed the ‘Venus’ symbol of the female sex from the wrapping.

Outraged women are now boycotting the leading brand after the decision by makers Procter & Gamble (P&G) to kowtow to trans activists who were born female and still use sanitary products.

Feminists have begun to realize that the only people undermining women are from other factions within their own Cultural Marxist coalition. I don’t see them pushing back against Islam, but at least they acknowledge the hostility of the transsexual corps.

Proclaims feminist Julie Bindel:

“We’re now moving towards the total elimination of women’s biology.”

Biology is a thought crime, according to LGBT dogma.

Continues Bindel:

“The women’s symbol has been used by feminists for decades. This is pure cowardice and virtue signalling from these big corporate brands who are capitulating to the trans agenda.”

With luck, P&G will continue to lose money by pandering to moonbats.

P&G Gillette Ad Prequel

Procter and Gamble managed to generate so much publicity by attacking men with their appalling Gillette ad that many would be surprised to learn that it may not be the most insufferable moonbattery P&G has produced. A still worse earlier ad demonized whites and egged on blacks to hate them. See it here, or if corporate propaganda is too subtle for you, watch Mr Reagan’s narrated version below:

P&G Nauseates With Another PC Ad

Procter & Gamble may never surpass Nike as the US corporation with the most irritatingly left-wing public posture, but it isn’t for lack of trying. The nauseating self-righteousness of their preachily politically correct advertisements will make a committed countermoonbat swear off P&G products for life — and there are a lot of them (Gillette, Pampers, Tide, Downy, Bounty, Charmin, Puffs, Tampax, Head & Shoulders, Old Spice, Cascade, Dawn, Mr. Clean, Vicks, Crest, Oral-B, Ivory, etc).

If P&G’s 2-minute ode to black oppressedness triggered your gag reflex, their cartoonishly contrived attack on toxic masculinity ought to launch your lunch across the screen:

No longer do you have to spend $40,000 per year in the Womyn’s Studies Department at a liberal arts college to wallow in hatred of “toxic masculinity.” Just flip on the TV and wait for a Gillette ad.

In case the stereotypes were too subtle for viewers, Pankaj Bhalla, Gillette brand director for North America, drives the point home:

“We are taking a realistic look at what’s happening today, and aiming to inspire change by acknowledging that the old saying ‘Boys Will Be Boys’ is not an excuse.”

They want boys to stop being boys.

Most of us can agree that acting like a jerk is bad. That’s why Cultural Marxist social engineers are trying to conflate masculinity with acting like a jerk.

When utopia has been imposed, no one will be more masculine than Bradley Manning.

Moonbat Mob Comes After Whole Foods

Here’s another one to file under liberal tolerance. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was named “Person of the Year” by the national products trade publication WholeFoods Magazine for his contribution to legalizing industrial hemp. Moonbats, cognizant only that McConnell is a Republican and therefore bad, flew into a Twitter rage against Whole Foods, the favorite grocery store of many liberal elitists. It did not occur to them to wonder whether McConnell did something to earn the award — or even to wonder whether WholeFoods Magazine the trade publication has any relationship whatsoever with Whole Foods the grocery story.

Via the Washington Times:

Responses included, “We’re done with you,” “I won’t shop @WholeFoods anymore,” “I don’t understand why Whole Foods magazine would choose to associate #MoscowMitch with their brand,” and “Can’t tell if this is a parody or not.”

The hashtag #BoycottWholeFoods cropped on Twitter, with one disgruntled shopper tweeting, “Now let’s drown Whole Foods with a blue wave boycott.”

The liberal mob will take up their pitchforks and torches given the slightest pretext. They will turn on anyone over any perceived infraction against political correctness. Corporations are foolish to pander to them. Sooner or later, even the most obsequiously PC companies like Nike and Procter & Gamble will incur the mob’s wrath for one reason or another.

Ignited outrage against Whole Foods.

Sick Sprite Commercial Airs in Argentina

Procter & Gamble’s intensely nauseating Gillette ad was not the last to feature a parent encouraging a child to stray into depravity and mental illness. Coca-Cola saw fit to run this Sprite ad on social media platforms prior to a “pride” spectacle in Buenos Aires:

Maudlin music apparently helps wash down the corruption of children that is central to the LGBT agenda.

As noted by Activist Mommy,

At the end of the ad, the slogans , “Orgullo: Lo que sentís cuando alguien que querés elige ser feliz,” and “No estás solx,” appear, which translate to “Pride: What you feel when someone you love chooses to be happy,” and “You’re not alone.”

Note the extra-woke gender-indeterminate “solx” instead of “solo” for “alone.”

Embracing perversion, degeneracy, and the psychosis of believing yourself to be a member of the opposite sex makes people happy. Encouraging this makes you loving. Those who don’t approve are cruel and bad. Drink Sprite!

Charmin Gets Squeezed by Ecomoonbats

Moonbattery is a capricious and perfidious god. Not even Nike and Dick’s have gone to greater lengths than Procter & Gamble to pay it obeisance, even at the cost of disgusting or enraging its own customers. P&G force-feeds us neurotic white guilt. It accuses men of toxic masculinity. It celebrates morbid obesity so as to combat lookism. It makes us throw up into our throats with transsexual propaganda. It has taken a financial hit for wallowing in moonbattery. The thanks it gets: ecomoonbats denounce its Charmin toilet paper as hurtful to the sacred boreal forests.

“It’s just unacceptable that a company like P&G is making toilet paper, a product that is used for seconds and flushed, from virgin pulp,” said Shelley Vinyard, boreal corporate campaign manager for the Natural Resources Defense Council and one of several dozen protesters at P&G’s annual shareholders meeting in Cincinnati, Ohio, on Tuesday.

Moonbats demand that Charmin be made of more politically correct recycled wood pulp.

P&G offers a simple reason for not using recycled wood pulp: It doesn’t make for good toilet paper.

P&G points out that acquiring paper from well-managed forests makes more sense than using recycled garbage. However, recycling is inherently good in the moonbat religion, just as cutting down trees, even if you planted the trees specifically so that you could cut them down, is inherently bad.

Sooner or later, every corporation will learn that rhetorically feeding the crocodile of moonbattery does not guarantee that it will eat you last.

TripAdvisor Forbids Captive Cetaceans

All that is not woke will be canceled by liberal establishmentarians. They don’t have to control the government; private companies will behave as if they were under the direct rule of the most fanatical moonbats imaginable. For example, travel giant TripAdvisor announced this yesterday:

TripAdvisor, the travel platform trusted by millions of consumers worldwide, will no longer sell tickets to, or generate revenue from, any attraction that continues to contribute to the captivity of future generations of cetaceans (whales, dolphins and porpoises)…

As a result, any commercial facility that either breeds or imports cetaceans for public display will be banned from sale on TripAdvisor and Viator.

This bullying of attractions like SeaWorld is enabled by an alarmingly prevalent mentality that prizes left-wing posturing above profits. The phenomenon has subjected us to nauseating displays of “virtue signaling” (i.e., obeisance to leftist ideology) by corporations as dominant a Procter & Gamble and Nike.

It is not enough to be woke; you must be more woke than others. Progressives must always progress by pushing the envelope. Dictating that cetaceans shall not be bred or held in captivity is only…

…the latest extension of TripAdvisor’s industry-leading animal welfare policy, which first launched in 2016. The policy already commits TripAdvisor and its subsidiary brand Viator to no longer sell tickets to experiences where travelers come into physical contact with captive wild animals, such as elephant ride and tiger petting experiences. It was further enhanced in 2018, at which point TripAdvisor also banned demeaning animal shows and performances from sale.

What “demeaning” might mean in the context of animal rights, only a moonbat could answer. Presumably, teaching a dog to beg for treats would be demeaning.

Future extensions of the policy may ban tickets to events that feature any animal in captivity. Zoos, rodeos, horseback riding, et cetera demean animals and therefore must be eradicated by the corporate cancel culture.

As we slide ever further down the slippery slope toward absolute lunacy, and animal-exploiting villains become ever harder to identify, events will be banned if anyone associated with them stands accused of owning a fishbowl. Already San Francisco has considered banning goldfish.

Washington Post Encourages More Attacks on Republicans

It started with public figures being shrieked at by moonbats when they try to dine in public, as with Kirstjen Nielsen, Ted Cruz, and Mitch McConnell. It escalated when the owner of the Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Virginia refused to serve Sarah Sanders. Last Tuesday, liberal tolerance and civility escalated further when a waitress spat in the face of Eric Trump in The Aviary, a ritzy Chicago cocktail lounge. Then the odious Washington Post responded to this incident a few days later by publishing a rant by Stephanie Wilkinson, owner of the Red Hen, that actually justifies uncivil behavior toward non-leftists in public places like restaurants.

A few annotated lowlights:

[A]t bottom this isn’t about politics. It’s about values, and accountability to values, in business.

When a moonbat says it isn’t about politics, it’s about values, she means it isn’t about normal politics, it’s about self-righteous, elitist, if-you-don’t-agree-with-me-you-are-filth-and-must-die liberal politics.

On a variety of levels, pressure is increasing on companies to articulate and stand by a code. Customers are demonstrating that they want to patronize companies that share their values.

The term for this is ESG. It is responsible for the often nauseating ultraleft propaganda rammed down the public’s throat by belligerently woke corporations like Procter & Gamble, Nike, and Burger King. Sharing “values” that do not consist of radical left-wing political views has no part in this.

Our workforce also increasingly demands that employers establish a set of ethical standards. The once-ubiquitous idea that companies exist purely and solely to provide profit to shareholders is withering away like corn husks in the summer sun.

All good liberals know that it is not about profits, which are bad. It’s about social engineering. This attitude actually flies in the entertainment industry; we’ll see if it works for restaurants.

[I]t’s not okay to ask employees, partners or management to clock out of their consciences when they clock in to work.

When progressives are driven by their depraved ideology to do something vile, they see this as acting nobly in accordance with their consciences. We can assume that it is “not okay” to expect waitresses to refrain from spitting in the faces of customers they regard as insufficiently liberal.

The rules have shifted.

Now all is permitted, because orange man bad.

[W]hen the day comes that the world feels returned to its normal axis [i.e., when Democrats are back in full control of Washington], I expect we’ll see fewer highly charged encounters making headlines. In the meantime, the new rules apply. If you’re directly complicit in spreading hate or perpetuating suffering, maybe you should consider dining at home.

“Spreading hate or perpetuating suffering” is liberalese for “being the sort of person liberals hate and will take every opportunity to make suffer.” Hypocrisy is the core essence of their mentality, possibly because deep down they know that everything they say is wrong. That’s why they talk in euphemisms for euphemisms (e.g., choice = abortion = killing a baby) and sheer Orwellian B.S. (e.g., inclusion = exclusion of normal people).

In terms of irresponsibility, publishing this sociopathic garbage ranks with Maxine Waters egging on Democrats to harass any Republicans who dare go out in public. But at least Waters has the excuse of subnormal intelligence. WaPo knows what it is doing; it is not just bullying, which we are used to from progressives by now, but encouraging a steady escalation toward the political violence that is already beginning to emerge.

A new low, even for WaPo.

Why Moonbats Will Ban Toilet Paper

Where socialism prevails, there is no toilet paper. The Soviet Union was one example; Venezuela is another. A USA run by moonbats will be a third. Even before the economy collapses, TP is likely to be forbidden — for the sake of the forests:

The voracious use of toilet paper in the United States — with the average American using almost three rolls each week and major manufacturers spurning alternative fibres — is destroying Canada’s forests and causing widespread environmental damage, two international environmental groups say.

According to a report, toilet paper usage by incorrigible Americans oppresses Canada’s boreal forests.

“Forests are too vital to flush away,” says the report, called The Issue With Tissue, released Wednesday by Natural Resources Defense Council and Stand.earth, international nonprofit environmental organizations that cooperated on the study.

One of the main tissue producers denounced for environmental incorrectness is Procter & Gamble. This company is infamous for shoving anti-Caucasian and anti-male propaganda down customers’ throats in an apparent effort to sell products by pandering to leftists. Yet again we see that the ESG approach is doomed to failure. Progressives will never be placated, because by definition they must always progress to ever more demented demands.

What today’s activists denounce, tomorrow’s Democrat rulers forbid. Enjoy wiping with unrecycled toilet paper that doesn’t disintegrate during use while you can.

Or maybe they will have us using corncobs:

The report also unrolls the incredible toilet paper use by consumers in the U.S., noting that just 150 years ago Americans used corncobs to clean up, but have since been drummed by marketing campaigns to demand the softest tissue they can get, which comes from Canada’s softwood.

Good thing wooden dentures would oppress the forests. Otherwise, leftist luddites might insist we go back to those too.

Compounding the environmental concerns is that all of those trees turned into pulp and made into tissue are then flushed down the toilet without recycling diversion.

Some things really should not be recycled no matter how much you love the planet. Used toilet paper is a prime example.

Per intersectionality, there must always be a Cultural Marxism angle. Here it comes:

Rampant use of virgin pulp tissue is threatening the way of life for Canada’s Indigenous Peoples, causing large environmental damage, endangering wildlife and contributing to climate change…

Wiping your behind oppresses aborigines and causes global warming. If you want to think of yourself as a good person, whatever you do, don’t wipe. Enjoy the itchiness and smell as constant reminders of your piety.

Why Dems Crush Small-Time Entrepreneurs

We have seen how Big Government puts the screws to small-time entrepreneurs like independent hairdressers, often crushing them with unreasonable licensing requirements. What exactly do bureaucrats have against them? Washington State Representative Joe Schmick offers some insight:

My office has received many phone calls and emails about an effort (Senate Bill 5326) to eliminate booth rental agreements, like those used by hairdressers and stylists, who rent “booths” and are their own small business. …

Small businesses in the service industry don’t have to pay a business and occupation (B&O) tax if their annual revenue is less than $56,000/year, and pay a reduced amount if they make between $56,000 and $112,000/year. The sponsors of this bill want to do an “end run” around our B&O tax exemptions for small business entrepreneurs by forcing them to go to work for larger businesses that don’t have the same tax incentives.

If you were to listen to their quasi-Marxist rhetoric, you would think liberals were against large businesses — which mysteriously tend to be run by people who noisily advance liberal political views (Nike, Apple, Procter & Gamble, Google, etc.).

But many – if not most – of these entrepreneurs are women, single mothers, and second-income earners who need the flexibility of setting their own schedules and the ability to maximize every dollar earned that they can!

From the Democrat perspective, such women have no business working anyway. They should just lie back and let the welfare state take care of them, like Indians on a reservation.

In effect, this bill seeks to balance the budget, or pay for more things like the governor’s billion dollar plan to save the orcas, on the backs of small business entrepreneurs making less than $56,000/year.

The governor he refers to is of course moonbat extraordinaire Jay Inslee, who is among the many unhinged leftists vying for the Democrat presidential nomination.

Constructive Version of Gillette Ad
