I think by now, we all have seen the Focus on the Family sponsored Super Bowl ad. The ad received quite a bit of hype, even before it was seen. As a review, here is the ad.
As you can see, this is clearly the most insidious and evil advertisement the world has ever seen. At least, that’s what the National Organization of Women would have us believe.
Steve Ertelt at LifeNew is reporting that the National Organization for Women’s [NOW] President Terry O’Neil told the Los Angeles Times that the Mr. Tebow’s tackling his mother promotes Domestic Violence.:
In remarks that are raising eyebrows from pro-life advocates, NOW president Terry O’Neill said that bit of the ad glorified violence against women.
“I am blown away at the celebration of the violence against women in it,” she told the Los Angeles Times. “That’s what comes across to me even more strongly than the anti-abortion message. I myself am a survivor of domestic violence, and I don’t find it charming. I think CBS should be ashamed of itself.”
So, this ad promotes violence against women?? Then I guess they REALLY blew a fuse over this one…
I mean, this one is 34 seconds of concentrated hate, right? Not only do they violently tackle Betty White, they then verbally abuse her. Then, they drill Abe Vigoda (who knew the guy was still alive? Good job, Abe!). So, violence against women and abuse of senior citizens! And what was the response from NOW??
That’s right! They have not a single thing to say about it! Need I mention anything that Go Daddy does? (Awaiting a stream of profanity from Snarky Basterd) Again, nothing from NOW on that either.
So, what does this mean? I think the answer lies in two major tactics of the left. One is that for all of their talk of “Tolerance and Diversity,” the left only tolerates their own opinion. Have a dissenting opinion? Well, that’s not tolerated. The other is that rather than have a debate; the left will ridicule an opponent in an effort to make their ideas irrelevant. After all, if the presenter of an idea is somehow “evil,” why should you consider what they have to say? Since the left relies on deception and coercion to achieve control, actual tolerance and diversity are impossible. There can be no other ideas-no other way.
