Oh, the heart break of Offendeditis! It just seems to beset certain Liberals constantly. The latest outbreak, caused by this video
So, why would anyone with an IQ above room temperature be offended by this ad? The ad is for a lottery, the woman is Lady Luck, a pretty simple formula to follow right? Well, not for the perpetually offended types. Donald Douglas has the story.
here’s this at the Los Angeles Times, “New lottery ad glamorizes violence, California legislators complain“:
The leaders of the California Legislative Women’s Caucus called for removal of a state lottery television ad that shows a woman slapping a man across the face, saying it sanctions violence.
“It is inappropriate for any entity, especially a state-funded Commission, to promote its products through the use of violence,” state Sen. Noreen Evans (D-Santa Rosa), the caucus chairwoman, and Assemblywoman Bonnie Lowenthal (D-Long Beach), the caucus co-chair, wrote to the head of the Lottery Commission.
The California Lottery’s “Luck has a new look” ad shows a mysterious woman in black — Lady Luck — who walks up to a man playing a new scratcher lottery card in a bowling alley and then slaps him in the face, after which the guy yells “I won.” Lady Luck walks away smiling.
The lawmakers note that the Legislature has taken a position against violence against women, but that they believe violence by women against men is also a serious problem.
“This commercial glamorizes violence under the auspice of “lady luck” and we find it offensive and counterproductive to society at large,” they wrote, asking the lottery to better scrutinize the content of future adds to prevent “harmful messages that are paid for with public dollars.“
They find it “counterproductive to society”! Frankly, that sounds like what the Democratic party is to me. This does illustrate a huge issue though. When are the voters going to stop electing overgrown children like these two pin heads? The ad is funny, well made, and anyone who has a grasp on reality would not have an issue with it.
