    Colin Kaepernick started a national uproar after kneeling during the National Anthem at NFL games as a commentary against alleged police abuse of African-Americans. Kaepernick took it a step further when he wore ‘cops as pigs’ socks at his football practice. Kaepernick was cheered and celebrated on the left for his slam on the country and police officers. In September 2018 Nike announced they were hiring Colin Kaepernick for their 30th Anniversary advertising campaign. On Independence Day this year Kaepernick bashed America as the worst nation on earth. Liberals cheered the ass-clown. Kaepernick was awarded Man of the Year by...

    NASCAR admits it is shifting its position on guns and the latest proof can be seen via the rejection of an ad that shows a semiautomatic rifle. The NRA tweeted:The NRA-ILA reports the rejected ad was from K-Var, and “included depictions of ‘assault-style rifles/sniper rifles.'” NASCAR’s media sales company told K-Var the racing giant is undergoing a “gradual shift in (its) position on guns.”K-Var’s blog reported the entire quote from National Event Publications, which is NASCAR’s media sales company: We just heard from NASCAR on a number of gun related ads and unfortunately, due a gradual shift in NASCAR’s position on guns,...

    An advertisement juxtaposing male astronauts with a woman sitting by a stroller, and another depicting two hapless dads, are the first casualties of a British ban on gender stereotypes in advertising. The ads, for Volkswagen and Philadelphia cream cheese, were investigated by the UK Advertising Standards Agency (ASA) after viewers complained they perpetuated gender stereotypes.

    Major League Soccer’s new policy that bans political displays at matches is stirring controversy in the Pacific Northwest, where supporters’ culture is often intertwined with politics and social issues. The Seattle Sounders and the Portland Timbers have banned signs and flags with the "Iron Front" symbol, which they say has become appropriated by some in the loosely structured antifa movement, at times in the context of violence.

    Gillette CEO and president Gary Coombe is defending the $8 billion write-down Procter & Gamble experienced last quarter related to his brand, saying in a recent interview that it was “worth paying” and that he doesn’t mind alienating some customers. Coombe told Marketing Week that the loss was “a price worth paying” as the 188-year-old maker of razors, blades and other grooming products contends with dwindling sales. “It was pretty stark. We were losing share, we were losing awareness and penetration, and something had to be done,” Coombe said. He said Gillette decided to “take a chance in an emotionally-charged...

    …...Consumers, men in particular, must be made to feel worthless. They have to be reminded that their needs and desires are wrong under any circumstances, that their instincts are loathsome, that their very existence is a malignancy, and that they're responsible for all the world's ills whether they want to admit it or not. Now give them your money, you piece of garbage. But hey, maybe I was wrong. Maybe this was a good idea. How is it working out for Gillette?

    DUBLIN, July 5, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — Google admitted to interference in Ireland’s 2018 abortion referendum but claimed that it was merely to “help voters.” In revelations made by pro-transparency website Project Veritas, YouTube “blacklisted” a large number of videos on its platform in advance of the referendum while also interfering with search results. YouTube is wholly owned by Google. When voters searched for specific terms on YouTube, the results of their searches were manually altered by Google, thus assuring that the videos selected by Google reach the top of the search results. Among the searches affected by interference from Google...

    ISLAMABAD: An international detergent brand has come under fire for an advertisement questioning gender stereotypes in the conservative patriarchal country, with critics denouncing the company for allegedly insulting Islam. The commercial for Ariel soap, owned by US-based Proctor & Gamble, calls for women to break free of conservative norms and pursue careers. In the ad, several women representing different professions - including a journalist and doctor - are seen pushing dirty sheets hanging on a clothesline off the screen. The sheets are printed with common refrains used to reinforce the oppression of women in Pakistan, including the question “What will...

    Opinion| The United States Military might have come up with the perfect system to solve our border issues. The military has now introduced the Active Denial System, which conservative commentator Glenn Beck feels might be the answer to our problems. Conservative Tribune reports, "You may not have heard of the ADS, which has been a topic of debate for over a decade now. The non-lethal deterrent system been labeled by both military personnel and press alike as a 'pain ray' — which, I suppose, is a catchier way to refer to it than ADS.

Samson Bonkeabantu Brown, a Toronto-based artist, shares the personal on-camera experience with his father, who coaches him through the significant life moment. “Now, don’t be scared,” his father warns. “Shaving is about being confident.” “Growing up, I was always trying to figure out what kind of man I wanted to become and I’m still trying to figure out what kind of man that I want to become,” says Brown, who addresses his transition through manhood.

    As the nation’s highest-rated television program, the Super Bowl offers advertisers the opportunity to define (or re-define) themselves for the public in a way that no other venue can provide. A memorable commercial will be discussed among friends at Super Bowl parties today, and at the office water cooler tomorrow. That’s why companies are willing to pay $5 million for half a minute. Many companies take the opportunity to associate themselves with themes and values cherished by current and potential customers. The label “virtue-signaling” is usually used by me in a negative fashion when companies and people embrace the shibboleths...

    It’s Thursday and we’re still talking about the Gillette ad “The Best a Man Can Be.” If you’ve been hiding under a rock, patiently waiting for the eventual return of Louder with Crowder (which is TONIGHT), go check out: Gillette’s #TheBestAManCanBe Ad Assumes Toxic Masculinity is a Real Thing and Top 10 Reactions to Gillette’s Anti-Masculinity Advertisement. The tone of the ad was incredibly patronizing, assuming most men are basically sexist pigs. That’s the key problem. So it’s not surprising that we’ve learned the ladies responsible for the ad are woke feminists who hate Trump: The director behind Gillette’s controversial...

    So who is the mastermind at Gillette who came up with the idea that the best way to sell men's razors is to insult the customers with condescending liberal propaganda about "toxic masculinity"? Is pandering to the perpetually angry feminists in the media the way to grab positive "news" coverage? Is online buzz the goal? If so, it must also be Gillette's goal to have its customers rush over to the Schick display. A century ago, Gillette ran ads in newspapers touting American soldiers of World War I using their product: the "clean fighters" of the Allied forces "fighting for...

    During the last weekend before the 2018 midterms, the media decided an ad by President Trump was "racist" and therefore refused to air it. CNN, NBC, Facebook and even Fox News took that position. The "star" of this commercial is Luis Bracamontes, a Mexican citizen who has repeatedly entered America illegally and who shot two California police deputies dead in 2014. In January, Fox News aired footage of Bracamontes boasting in court: "I don't (expletive) regret that (expletive). The only thing that I (expletive) regret is that I (expletive) killed two. I wish I (expletive) killed more of those...
