Liberal Toxicity Is Everywhere But P&G Most Likely Will Never Produce an Ad Condemning it
The Gillette/Proctor & Gamble video condemning male toxicity has gotten a lot of attention. Some people like the ad and others despise it because it’s universally judgmental. It leaves the impression that all men act a certain way and are dismissive of “toxic” male behavior.
In the new commercial from Grey, Gillette, a company which made billions of dollars from men for over a century, disparages every one of those very same men. The brand clumsily attempts to contemporize its long-lasting slogan, “The Best a Man Can Get,” by featuring sinister males bullying and harassing – an action which Gillette describes as “toxic” masculinity. The ad is amateurishly stereotypical and mostly offers a caricature of masculinity…. In the first day after the ad was posted on YouTube, negative comments this ad outpolled “likes” by an incredible 10 to 1. (Forbes)
Feel-good ads with a message do well and can get the same message across by showing the right kind of behavior. For example, Proctor & Gamble “did a great job with the award-winning #LikeAGirl campaign for Always, which encourages girls to be confident in the face of the fear of failure.” P&G’s “The Talk” commercial won a Primetime Emmy.
Those praising the ad seem to forget that there is a larger agenda in view — the displacement of a worldview where real distinctions exist but refuse to be acknowledged. A new set of radical distinctions is being created. Gender is being redefined with new laws being passed that forbid discrimination of “transgenders.” Refusing to abide by the new distinctions will make you a criminal.
The director who created the man-scolding ad for Gillette razors that riled the world has a long history of hardcore, left-wing activism and her boss is a virulent hater of President Donald Trump. (Breitbart)
A little consistency on P&G’s part would be appreciated, but it will never happen because of the company’s broader and longer agenda to turn moral world upside down:
Never mind Gillette’s parent company, Procter & Gamble (P&G), has funded “toxic masculinity” on networks that reek of it like MTV and BET. Ten years ago P&G executives wanted to know from the public if they should act morally and withdraw their ad dollars from those two networks which are still drenched in sex, violence and profanity. They needed a poll to see if they should act responsibly? (Life News)
Then there’s this:
There are toxic people everywhere. Whites and blacks, male and female, Democrats and Republicans. You name the group, and you’ll find toxicity — what used to be called sin.
If the goal was to make for a less toxic world, an ad showing men doing good things would have served as an example to other men. Men — mostly white men — are being attacked in unprecedented ways.
As you’ve probably noticed, bashing straight white men, especially of the conservative kind, is very fashionable these days.
You seemingly can’t escape it — you switch on cable TV, or “The View,” read The Washington Post or The New York Times, and see liberal pundits verbally attack white men for this or that. (USA Today)
Larry Elder notes:
What’s the last remaining group in America that can be slandered, smeared, maligned and accused of racism, sexism and homophobia with no proof required? White men. On election night 2016, CNN’s Van Jones attributed Donald Trump’s victory to “whitelash.” That is, racist whites rose up in fear and anger over a country governed for eight years by a black president and in which whites will soon become a demographic minority.
When white men are not being vilified for their alleged inherent sexism, they are being vilified for their alleged inherent racism. CNN’s white male chief legal analyst, Jeffrey Toobin, attributed Hurricane Maria’s death total to Trump’s pro-white racism: “Isn’t the story that these people who died, apparently thousands of them in Puerto Rico — 3,000 as you point out — they’re not white people. And they don’t count to Donald Trump as much as the deaths of white people. I mean, you hate to say that about someone, but look at his record. Isn’t that indicative of who he is and what he stands for?” (Boston Herald)
If you want to know about real toxicity, I suggest that you look at the abortion industry. Democrat Party is the party of abortion, the legalized killing of unborn babies.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton joined New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Monday [1/7/19] in calling for codifying abortion rights in New York state law as a bulwark against any potential court challenges to the landmarkdecision made 46 years ago this month.
Cuomo wants to add the right to kill unborn babies in the New York Constitution. Cuomo is a Catholic who attends a Catholic Church. Hillary Clinton is a Methodist. The Rev. Bill Shillady, executive director of the New York-based United Methodist City Society released a book “titled Strong for a Moment Like This: The Daily Devotions of Hillary Rodham Clinton, the book will include 365 of the over 600 devotions as well as a forward by Clinton herself.”
This is called toxic hypocrisy that violates the Third and Sixth Commandments.
Here’s a bit of pro-abortion toxicity:
Women can also be toxic. There’s this from the newly elected and sworn-in congresswoman Congresswoman, Rashida Tlaib, a Democrat from Michigan, who pledged to “impeach the motherf*****” Donald Trump.
It’s hardly appropriate or polite language to talk about the president of the U.S., most experts agree, but Tlaib has refused to back down. “People love you and you win, and when your son looks at you and says, ‘Momma, look you won. Bullies don’t win.’ And I said, ‘Baby, they don’t, because we’re gonna go in there and we’re gonna impeach the mother*****.’”
The Left is attacking Vice President Mike Pence’s wife for teaching an art class in a Christian school that teaches that homosexuality and same-sex sexuality are not accepted. The New York Times reports:
Karen Pence, the second lady of the United States, returned to teaching art this week, accepting a part-time position at a private Christian school that does not allow gay students and requires employees to affirm that marriage should only be between a man and a woman.
It’s not only homosexuality that is forbidden. “The eighth item on the application’s ‘Articles of Employment,’ which requires applicants to sign their initials next to a list of beliefs, outlines Immanuel Christian’s definition of marriage and stances on sexual identity”:
“I understand that the term ‘marriage’ has only one meaning; the uniting of one man and one woman,” it reads, adding that certain “moral misconduct” would be disqualifying, such as “heterosexual activity outside of marriage (e.g., premarital sex, cohabitation, extramarital sex), homosexual or lesbian sexual activity, polygamy, transgender identity, any other violation of the unique roles of male and female.”
Note that even heterosexuals are “discriminated” against.
There are many examples of toxicity on the Left, but it seems that a company like P&G is selective in its strong disapproval. It would never tackle toxic Leftism.
