Biden Notices Social Engineering in Ads

The racial social engineering pushed by the advertising industry is so ham-fisted, even Joe Biden has noticed it:

No, it sure isn’t by accident. But he veers from the truth by pretending that advertising reflects American culture. The opposite is the case; it is used with increasing aggressiveness to alter American culture. For the pushiest examples, refer to ads for Procter & Gamble brands (e.g., here, here, here, here, here, here).

Pantene Ad Features Lesbians Converting Boy Into Girl

It seemed that Procter & Gamble had reached the last limits of moonbattery with the woke commercials it has been ramming down our throats. But progressives always progress to another previously unimaginable extreme.

After already having promoted the transsexualization of children, as well as obesity, man hatred, the false and divisive black oppression narrative, and the bizarre lie that men can menstruate, P&G continues to push the envelope.

The many P&G brands include Pantene haircare products, which are intended for liberal use only to judge by a commercial featuring two lesbians converting a boy into a pseudogirl on behalf of their grotesque ideology.

Behold the price innocent kids pay as liberals press their advantage in the Culture War:

The vast majority of children who have been convinced they have gender dysphoria grow out of it. But they will never grow out of the damage inflicted on their bodies and their minds by moonbats who try to physically convert them into the opposite sex.

Woke corporations have reached the depth of exploiting child abuse as a marketing ploy.

Ads Push Interracial Couples

No, it isn’t your imagination. Commercials engage in social engineering not only by vastly overrepresenting blacks, but by pushing miscegenation (to use a word that will soon disappear from the dictionary).

Via Voice of America:

More than 50 years after the U.S. Supreme Court struck down laws banning interracial marriage, a growing number of ads feature interracial couples with biracial children.

In Alexandria, Virginia, Kelly Thalman, who is white and a single mother to a biracial child, is glad to see the trend.

Not even VOA is completely free of thoughtcrime. In the near future, this article will be memory-holed for perpetuating the stereotype of the white mother of a biracial child whose father is not in the picture.

VOA admits there has been pushback from people who are put off by the intrusive political correctness. San Francisco State University marketing professor Subodh Bhat, who speaks supportively of leftist virtue signaling in advertising, confesses that as recently as 2018, “ads depicting Black and white couples elicited more negative emotions and attitudes toward a brand than comparable ads showing same-race couples.”*

But in advertising, the leftist agenda comes before selling products. Anything that results in fewer white people advances social justice.

Bruce Springsteen, Unity, and Responsible Driving

In this year’s terrible Super Bowl ad, Jeep picked the wrong guy to put behind the wheel of a vehicle. It has been revealed that Bruce Springsteen was busted last November for driving while intoxicated, reckless driving, and consuming alcohol in a closed area.

Another reason Springsteen was a poor choice for the ad, in which he drives around preaching about unity, is that he is a partisan moonbat:

In 2020, during the presidential race, Springsteen repeatedly bashed then-President Donald Trump. At one point, the singer declared that he would leave the country if Trump were to be re-elected.

The rocker also teamed up with left-wing activist and novelist Don Winslow on a viral video that used the discredited “suckers” and “losers” story from The Atlantic to smear Trump.

Springsteen also performed during President Joe Biden’s inaugural celebration last month.

No doubt Jeep paid dearly for the 2-minute Super Bowl slot, which has since been pulled from its YouTube channel:

A 30-second spot of airtime during Super Bowl 55 cost about $5.5 million, according to Variety. At that price, Jeep would have spent $22 million for its 120-second spot.

Plus they had to pay the tax-dodging limousine liberal Springsteen. Get woke, go broke.

Liberal Media Attacks Independent Employment

The tens of millions of Americans who work independently are on notice. Liberals do not approve of independence and plan to put a stop to it.

Among this year’s Super Bowl commercials, Dolly Parton made one for Squarespace, in which she paid homage to the hard work of entrepreneurs, freelancers, and gig workers who don’t settle for existence as corporate or bureaucratic drones. The ad features a reworked version of her song “9 to 5”:

NBC News is enraged:

Rather than paying homage to the spirit of the original song, which made no bones about the exploitative nature of the daily grind, the commercial for Squarespace features a tinny ode to the side hustle. Its office workers are portrayed as being overjoyed to continue working after hours, their side hustles are painted as freeing, fun and fulfilling, and the song itself encourages them to “be your own boss, climb your own ladder.”

It’s a perfect storm of gig economy propaganda.

Praising hard work and independence — qualities that built the country — is now wrongthink.

Parton’s silvery voice is being used to promote the false virtues of working overtime, when so many gig economy workers are barely scraping by and the tech companies who employ — but misclassify — them are raking in boffo profits. The gig economy is a wretched alternative to a stable paycheck and proper benefits, and efforts to paint it as a matter of “independence” or “being one’s own boss” downplay how hard it is for so many gig workers to make ends meet. The lack of a safety net has become even more apparent thanks to the increased demands and dangers of the Covid-19 pandemic Parton herself has helped combat; delivery drivers, grocery shoppers and other gig workers have become a lifeline to so many, and yet they remain stripped of the protections and dignity they deserve.

Now we really are in the realm of propaganda — of the Marxist variety. Work is slavery. Those who work are victims who need the “protection” of Big Government.

Dolly Parton is then denounced for having betrayed workers for the sake of money like a lousy capitalist.

The appalling piece was written by Kim Kelly. “Her work on labor, politics and working-class resistance” has been published in various leftist publications, according to her bio.

The attack on independent workers is all about pleasing powerful unions, which believe that if you can’t be unionized you shouldn’t be allowed to work.

The Blaze notes that Kelly isn’t alone:

• Slate’s pop culture writer and editor Hilary Hughes chided Parton for the same reasons, saying the ad “diminished one of the most potent, and beloved, messages behind her own work while dressing it up as a tribute.”

• Newsweek published an analysis calling the commercial “disturbing” and full of “propaganda” that reflects “an insane ideology.”

• And Jessica Bennett — a New York Times editor at large who covers women and culture — didn’t like the commercial’s theme, either, saying it ignores the present reality of “American women” who now “deal with ongoing job losses, economic challenges and just plain fatigue.”

The Luftwaffe used to soften up countries with a bombing campaign before ground troops invaded. Similarly, the media may be launching a propaganda barrage against independent work before the Biden Administration declares it illegal on behalf on its Big Union benefactors.

Legislation to this effect has already been inflicted in California with AB5, throwing countless people out of work. A similar bill has passed the House. Biden supports this new extreme of tyranny.

In addition to pleasing unions, banning independent work during a time of high unemployment would increase the public’s dependence on handouts from Big Government. That’s why it might happen.

It’s Great Tom Brady Won and That I Didn’t See It

Pleased as I am that Tom Brady’s team won (sorry moonbats!), I don’t regret not watching the Super Bowl yesterday.

Here’s one reason:

Super Bowl 55 kicked off Sunday with recording artist Alicia Keys singing the so-called black national anthem, “Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing,” along with a poem.

Sports used to bring us together. Now, the Super Bowl serves as a pretext for the leftists who control pro sports to ram down our throats an alternate anthem representing 13% of the population in order to advance a radical political agenda.

Her mother is white, but Alicia Keyes makes up for that with her Afrocentric leftist politics.

Another reason to skip Super Bowls is the irritating yet absurdly hyped ads. Among this year’s crop, liberal elitist Man of the People Bruce Springsteen, who last year promised to leave the country if Trump was reelected, makes a maudlin attempt to sell us Jeeps in the name of unity:

We know what “unity” means from the viewpoint of Democrats these days. As Nick Arama puts it,

Unity to Democrats means shutting down all political opposition or any of the glaring truths out there that might challenge their narrative.

“Fear has never been the best of who we are,” Springsteen declares in the ad. “We just have to remember the very soil we stand on is common ground. So we can get there. We can make it to the mountaintop, through the desert …and we will cross this divide.”

What’s on the other side of the divide we must cross? A good guess would be liberal utopia. A left-wing world free of dissent.

Mark Dice explains why it’s great that Brady’s team won, but not the end of the world if you missed it:

PC Advertising Reaches New Extreme

Endlessly presenting interracial couples is hardly cutting edge at this point. Even transsexual children are becoming passé. It’s time for the social engineers who control the advertising industry to push the envelope. Brace yourself for the next trend: commercials featuring homosexual behavior.

From Ad Age:

Mondelez-owned Cadbury has defended a new U.K. campaign for its Cadbury Creme Egg, in which a gay couple passes a Creme Egg from mouth to mouth, after the spot attracted both celebrity praise and homophobic trolling on social media.

The ad is deliberately designed to evoke the gag reflex, as you can see for yourself by clicking here. Disapproving of this being presented on television is “homophobic trolling” — i.e., a thought crime of the type that might get you canceled.
