Vaseline gets woke and creates a Black Lives Matter ad
Americanthinker.com ^ | 10/19/2020 | Andrea Wilburg

Vaseline has come a long way from the oil fields. Like all modern companies, its management hires are almost certainly required to have a college degree. And unless that college degree comes from Hillsdale, another virtual certainty is that the college requirement means that Vaseline's management is steeped in leftism.

We've certainly seen this pattern with corporations instantly embracing the Marxist-inspired Black Lives Matter movement. Leftists also believe ridiculous theories such as the dishonest 1619 Project and the incredibly racist theory called "Critical Race Theory."

With those people in charge — and reporting to a Dutch-British company that has no inherent love for America — you shouldn't be surprised that Vaseline has just produced one of the most aggressively racist ads ever. These 30 seconds are steeped in Critical Race Theory; BLM America-hatred; the 1619 Project; and, implicitly, anti-white racism — all in the name of "equity in skincare." (Hat tip: Moonbattery.)

I never advocate formal boycotts. To me, boycotts are too often a leftist bullying strategy. However, speaking for myself, having seen that ad, I can't imagine ever again buying a Vaseline or Chesebrough Ponds product. This hate-filled ad is unforgivable.

OFFS! Really? I mentioned yesterday that one would be hard pressed to find any half way major corp or org that hasn't knelt down to the extortion. In one way or another, they will capitulate to the hate filled screed being shouted at them. And it won't do them any good.

Seems appropriate, given the number in corporate America who have bent over for BLM (and the ChiComs).

Ask these groups if they sided with the Black Panthers and if not why not and do they regret their support/non-support for the Black Panthers?

Then show them the historical record of the racist Maoist bank robbing terrorists who urged kids to KILL their parents.

Uh, did we have an incident? LOL! And here I thought mentholatum was soothing.

Unilever is the parent company. There are many other competing companies out there.

I saw the ad. Thanks for posting

No problemo. Of course if we dig far enough, they all seemed to be intertwined.

Why does going to YouTube and searching for "vaseline BLM" not yield any results relating to this commercial?
