The mainstream media tell us about a new victory of the refined homosexuals over the unwashed heterosexual masses. Marketwatch reports ecstatically about the epic consequences of a new Amazon Kindle commercial:
“Why Amazon’s new ad is a game changer
Advocates say latest Kindle commercial breaks new ground on gay marriage”
It appears that the big fuss is about the fact that “this month, Amazon released a commercial that gay-rights advocates say likely marks the first time the word “husband” was used by a mainstream brand on network television in the context of same-sex couples.”
Here is what happens in the commercial:
The ad for the Kindle Paperwhite e-reader features a man and woman sitting on a beach. He appears to have trouble reading on his iPad due to the glare of the sun and, on the advice of the woman, decides to buy the Kindle. “We should celebrate,” the man says. The woman pauses. “My husband’s bringing me a drink right now,” she replies. “So is mine,” he says. And with that, they both turn around and wave at two men at the bar.
Wow, how touching… I just shed a tear… what a groundbreaking concept!
The things are advancing pretty fast:
Corporate America is not only increasingly targeting the gay and lesbian demographic, gay rights activists say, but appealing to their friends and family as well. In fact, the number of mainstream advertisements containing gay images has doubled in the last year, according to the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation. There were a dozen such advertisements by household brands in 2012 versus the previous year, it says. They include Gap, Crate & Barrel, Johnson & Johnson, J. Crew, Discover America and Macy’s.
“Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation”! That sounds scary, like an organization that would destroy you, if you don’t admit cheerfully that the homosexual marriage is the best thing since sliced bread (as the folks from Chick-fil-a found out). That’s why I’ll be quick to add my standard disclaimer: I have nothing against homosexuals; they are free to practice their unusual lifestyle in bedrooms, bathhouses and other confined spaces.
But please, don’t try to make everybody admire you. That’s way too narcissistic…
However, that’s not something that the huge homosexual egos would reckon with. With false statistics, the media shamelessly try to make us believe that their issues are in the centre of everybody’s world:
And while commercials featuring LGBT images are still relatively rare, experts say the ones that do air inspire much less of a backlash than in the past. Indeed, public support of gay marriage is growing: In 2012, 48% of Americans supported gay marriage, compared to 33% a decade earlier, according to a Pew Research poll. Because of this, the advertising industry is incorporating gay people and families into mainstream campaigns, says Rich Ferraro, vice president of communications at GLAAD. In 1997, when Ellen DeGeneres famously came out on her ABC sitcom, J.C. Penney withdrew its advertising support. Today, DeGeneres is a spokesperson for J.C. Penney, which now features gay couples in its catalogs.
Yes, we all are dying to watch commercials, where the centerpiece is a group, which accounts for less than 3% of the general population. And for some reason, the wise marketers fail to mention that J.C. Penney’s attempt to make their marketing campaigns revolve around homosexuals was a dismal failure, which caused a loss of their regular customers.
Of course, truth has never been an obstacle for the insane social projects of the snobby elites (and homosexual domination is one of their most aggressively promoted projects):
That said, a brand like Amazon has the potential to influence public opinion on social issues, Witeck says. Ditto household names like Starbucks, Apple and Google, which have all donated to marriage equality causes. “But nothing speaks to equality like using the same words,” he says. The Kindle ad doesn’t have a cheesy slogan. “It doesn’t need one,” Witeck says. “This conversation is already taking place in shopping malls and workplaces all over the country. The advertisement simply says this is the America we live in in 2013.”
Yes, everybody sings hosanna to the gay marriage… not. Even in the comments under that news article the homojihad brigade is in full swing attacking and labeling everybody careless enough to disagree with their cause (that’s in addition to the website’s moderators, who censor everything, scared of the homosexual wrath).
A word of advice – showing less hostility and bigotry toward heterosexuals may win more friends for your cause…
