Good Grief: Liberals Complain That NBC Aired Raaaaacist Commercial
There’s lots of things one can complain about regarding the XXX Summer Games (snort). Most have seen the spectacular fail from NBC, no point in rehashing it. But, seriously?
After Gabby Douglas won the gold and Bob Costas spoke about how amazing this was for the first African-American to win the women’s all-around gymnastics title, NBC aired a commercial of a Monkey doing gymnastics which has caused quite a stir. Racist, or just bad timing? Tons of people on Twitter seemed to think it was more on the racist side.
Here’s what it looked like
And here’s a few of the Tweets, per the Buzzfeed link above
Sigh. It was a commercial. As Ed Driscoll explains
While NBC will likely be forced to grovel an apology, even a fake “we’re sorry if you were offended” effort, they also have a chance to push back against this if they want, and remind viewers that:
1. Commercials and the main TV programming they sponsor are two separate entities; if you’re seeing a connection between the two, that’s your problem. And:
2. If you’re associating African-Americans with monkeys – or you think that we do – that’s really your problem.
True. If you are immediately jumping to a racism mode of thought and linking the two, you are the racist. Furthermore, commercials tend to be scheduled well ahead of time with only a smattering of an idea as to will be on, particularly when one is dealing with the Olympics or some other sporting event. The advertiser probably knew that gymnastics might be on. Good time for that commercial, much like beer commercials with scantily clad women works best when The Man Show is on. But, we shouldn’t be too hard on our liberals pals: all the ever see is racism, and we should work hard to keep them calm and ween them from their long held racist ways.
People don’t like to talk about America’s culture for the same reason that a man who just had a heart attack doesn’t want to discuss the double bacon cheeseburger he’s...Read More
Remember the good old days, when politicians followed the spirit of the 1st Amendment, and did not attack private entities
With President Obama carrying on his “jobs summit” this week blaming business for “not hiring enough workers,” it is interesting
Feminists are mute on Slut TV, but we have them to thank for it. Perhaps thank is the wrong word; we have Feminists to blame for the influx of Slut TV. Yet, their silence regarding the same is deafening. Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Rock of Love, The Bad Girls Club, even Mtvâ€™s The Real World, all epitomize the very worst in female degradation and show just how much damage the â€œsexual empowermentâ€ fallacy, pushed by the Feminists, has caused. Okay, so maybe we should thank them for that; we are now seeing proof of their agenda driven theories failing in practice.
