National Guard not allowed to receive award from an evil church

PC, and more PC!

Citing federal regulations, the Missouri National Guard has refused to show up for an hour-long meet-and-greet with kids at a small Baptist church in the rural southwest corner of the state.

The kerfuffle went down during this summer’s vacation Bible school at Bible Baptist Church in Carthage, Mo., reports Fox News.

Vacation Bible school is sort of a rite of passage in the region — as common locally in the summertime as fireworks on the Fourth of July and sticky, sunny days.

For this year’s version, part of the Bible Baptist Church’s theme was “God’s Rescue Squad.” So, on Monday, some paramedics stopped by. On Tuesday, it was firefighters. On Wednesday, it was some lawmen and K-9 dogs from the Jasper County sheriff’s department.

Members of the Missouri National Guard were scheduled for a Thursday appearance (in a Humvee), but they failed to show up because, they said, federal regulations prevent military activities that could appear to endorse any religious or sectarian faction.

The War on American Culture rolls on

Good Freaking Grief! Now Thomas causing Racial Obsession Syndrome outbreaks

There are no words to define such rampant stupidity

I think we’re reaching the pinnacle of liberal PC insanity.

Thomas the Tank Engine had to shut the hell up to save children everywhere – Guardian

There are many terrible children’s programs through which parents must suffer during their child’s young life. For every Sesame Street, there is an annoying Caillou or an acid-trippy Yo Gabba Gabba. But Thomas and Friends is – or was – the one show with enough subversive messages to make me turn it off for good. [...]

But there was one particular episode that caused me to put the brakes on Thomas for good. It revolved around James, a red engine who is described in the opening credits as “vain but lots of fun.” (Wait, it’s OK to be vain if you can show others a good time occasionally? Great – that’s going in my Parenting 101 book.) In the episode “Tickled Pink”, poor vain James, is ordered by Topham Hat to get a new coat of paint. But while James has only had an undercoat of pink slathered on, Topham Hatt interrupts and demands that James go pick up Hatt’s granddaughter and deliver her and her friends to a birthday party right now.

James is mortified that he has to travel while pink and proceeds to hide from all the other trains along the way. When he’s caught, the other trains – including Thomas – viciously laugh and mock him.

“What are you doing James? You’re a big pink steamie,” says Diesel, the bad-boy engine. (For the record, all the “villains” on Thomas and Friends are the dirty diesel engines. I’d like to think there was a good environmental message in there, but when the good engines pump out white smoke and the bad engines pump out black smoke – and they are all pumping out smoke – it’s not hard to make the leap into the race territory.)

But once James gets back on the rails and picks up Granddaughter Hatt and her friends, all seemingly ends well because the girls love pink.

Well guess what? It’s not OK. You think a little boy watching Thomas is going to file away the lesson that pink is OK for boys? No, what kids remember is that James was laughed at, cruelly, over and over again, because he looked different and was clad in a “girly” pink color.

The Lefts ongoing obsession with race

Racial Obsession Syndrome strikes again

A star high school athlete in rural Marshalltown, Iowa has been suspended for three football games this fall because he posted a social media image of himself enthusiastically festooned from head to toe in white clothing during school spirit week. In the photo, he made the letter “W” with his hands — which in this case stands for white.

The student is Blair Van Staalduine, reports Des Moines NBC affiliate WHO-TV.

The student’s parents say the the principal of Marshalltown High School called Van Staalduine a racist after concluding that his hand signal was a white pride symbol.

The parents have now responded to the suspension and the charge that their son is a racist by threatening to sue.

The school colors at Marshalltown High appear to be red, white and blue. Van Staalduine wore white because school officials had asked members of his class to wear white during school spirit week festivities.

“The actual school chose the colors that each grade would be wearing,” Cathy Van Staalduine explained. “Juniors wore white. So Blair, of course, being active in the school, dressed from head to toe in white.”

She noted emphatically that the “W” sign was for the color her son was assigned.

“Blair says if they were wearing orange, they would have done an ‘O,’” she said.

This is a case of being preemptively offended. The principal knows someone is going to be offended, so, they preempt the offense by declaring this kid a RAAAAACIST, and offensive. The Left used to wait for someone to actually be offended before going into meltdown mode. Now they just go into meltdown mode automatically I hope the parents sue and sue and sue some more. This kind of idiocy needs to stop.

Bandemonium! Cakes declared EVIL by schools in Seattle

Good Grief!

A school district in the suburbs of Seattle has outlawed birthday cakes and other birthday sweets from all elementary school parties.

The ban is part of a broader set of wellness and nutrition policies by the Edmonds School District, where officials are blaming new federal wellness guidelines, reports Seattle CBS affiliate KIRO.

According to school district officials, the new federal wellness guidelines require schools to scrutinize what children are eating.

Soon all children will be forced to live in bubbles, and fed only Moochelle approved I suppose

For anyone foolish enough to cheer the attacks on the Redskins by the U.S. Patent Office

First here is the story

The decision this past week by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to rescind federal trademark protections for the Redskins may ultimately tip the balance in the controversy over the 80-year-old name of Washington’s football team. If so, that would be a shame. Not because there’s insufficient reason to consider the name “disparaging to Native Americans,” as the patent office determined. Many of us recoil at the reference to skin color as a team identity. The problem is that the Redskins case is just the latest example of a federal agency going beyond its brief to inappropriately insert itself in social or political debates.

Few people would have expected the future of the Redskins to be determined by an obscure panel in a relatively small government agency. Yet the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board showed little restraint in launching itself into this heated argument — issuing an opinion that supports calls for change from powerful politicians, including President Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.). The board had at its disposal a ridiculously ambiguous standard that allows the denial of a trademark if it “may disparage” a “substantial composite” of a group at the time the trademark is registered.

Now, you might disagree with what Johnathan Turley writes. You might think to yourself that the name is “offensive” to some, so the trademark protection should be rescinded. You might not think this is not another example of the government over stepping its rightful role. Or you might think that this over stepping is not your problem. You might think those things, but, what will you think if the next target of the government over reach is you, or your business? What will you think if the government decides to play thought police with you? Think on that awhile.

BBC: You Go “Girl”

Once the media starts banning words…………

The British Broadcasting Corporation censored a completely innocuous word in a recent documentary, just in case people would find it offensive.

The word: “girl.”

In a documentary ahead of the Commonwealth Games, which will take place in Glasgow, Scotland in July, host Mark Beaumont interviewed 19 year-old judo champion Cynthia Rahming and her family.

Rahming and Beaumont grappled, with the fighter taking the 31 year-old host to the mat.

“I am not sure I can live that down — being beaten by a 19-year-old girl,” he said in the documentary.

The episode originally aired in April, but in a re-run, the BBC removed the line containing the apparently offensive description of a young female.

The GIRL, did you read that BBC? I said GIRL, was not offended by being called GIRL at all. But, of course, the thing about the Left is you don’t have to know what offends you, they will tell you when to be offended.

Racism vs Homophobia in 3..2..1….?

A school in North Dakota banned the song YMCA by the Village people because RAAAAACISM

Has “Y.M.C.A.” ever struck you as a racist song? Well, one North Dakota parent complained about a school performance of the song, and her complaint got Bennett Elementary School to pull the song from the school’s talent show in May. However, the complaint had nothing to do with the content of the song itself, but the fact that the group that sings it, the Village People, has one member that dresses up like a Native American.

The school said students should dress up like the Village People for the performance, because the song would be performed by the entire first grade class, but the mother complained it would be “offensive” for children to come dressed to school like Native Americans. She explained, “Hopefully those people that are can make the right choices so all students of any culture and race won’t feel singled out or like their race is being stereotyped against.”

Hmmm, weren’t The Village people a gay band? Or at least some of their members were Gay? They had a huge Gay following I believe. And YMCA was a big hit among Gay men So isn’t this parent being Homophobic? HMMMMMMMMMMMMMM

Do Liberals ever tire of pretending to be victims?

The latest worst thing in the world of Liberal PC? Sir and Miss

Via Daily Mail:

When introduced to pupils as ‘Professor’, she may not have expected them to appreciate her academic achievements – but she did expect them to address her accordingly.

Instead, Jennifer Coates says she was ‘demeaned’ by the youngsters simply calling her ‘Miss’.

Professor Coates described it as ‘a depressing example of how women are given low status and men, no matter how young or new in the job they are, are given high status’.

Now the emeritus professor of English language and linguistics at Roehampton University has called for the traditional titles ‘Sir’ and ‘Miss’ to be banished from schools to stop sexist views taking root among pupils.

Her call was backed by several other academics – including one who said teachers should instead be called by their first names.

Professor Coates told how she had been introduced to pupils at Harris Girls’ Academy East Dulwich, where she was volunteering, as ‘Professor Coates’, but they soon reverted to calling her just ‘Miss’.

‘The men on the staff are all in their twenties and they were all called Sir,’ she said. ‘Sire is what you called the king. And Sir is a knight. There weren’t women knights but Miss is ridiculous: it doesn’t match Sir at all.

‘It’s just one of the names you can call an unmarried woman.’

She said that for both men and women using their ‘title plus last name would be better’.

Maybe she would prefer “Yo, you oppressed victim!”

What kind of idiots think up rules like this?

Via Weasel Zippers

OTTAWA, Ontario, Canada (CBC News/CNN) – A 2-year-old girl was suspended from her daycare for bringing a cheese sandwich to school Wednesday.The school has a strict “no outside food” policy.

Randy Murray says he didn’t know his daughter had food with her until it was too late.

“Faith must have snuck a cheese sandwich into her pocket, into her hand, and nobody saw it, and went into the classroom,” Murray said. “And by the time she was two steps in, one of the teachers had saw it, handed it back to me, and the next thing I know, we’re told we’re suspended for three days.”

The daycare defends its actions, saying the food policy is there to protect children and workers with food allergies.

Food allergies? OK, fine, but wouldn’t the father taking the food away suffice? I mean seriously, who makes up such rules and punishments? I hope that little girl is taken out of that Statist daycare

Sorority hosts costume party Offendeditis sweeps Columbia University

Good Freaking Grief! Let’s all have a whine fest!

A Columbia University administrator denounced a campus sorority for racial insensitivity over its Olympics-themed costume party in which students dressed up like citizens of different countries–such as Ireland, France and Mexico.

So, the administrator, we will call her moron, is aggrieved that a costume party with an Olympic theme might involve people dressing up as people from other nations? Sounds like someone fell out of the Tree of Idiocy and hit every branch on the way down

The administrator, Dean of Students Terry Martinez, said campus resources would be made available to provide counseling to anyone who was offended by Kappa Alpha Theta’s party.

Counseling? Over a freaking costume party?

“I am incredibly saddened and disappointed to learn of students in our community participating in costume caricatures of several different nationalities,” said Martinez in a statement. “It is our utmost responsibility to ensure that your living and learning environment is free from any act or behavior that degrades individuals or groups, including racially or culturally- based insensitivity. As such, the bias-related response team, which is comprised of members across Student Affairs including the Office of Multicultural Affairs and Fraternity and Sorority Life, are currently reaching out to potentially impacted communities to offer support and follow-up.”

The bias-related response team? Excuse me for a second while my head explodes, OK, wait, hold on, it going to explode again, stand by. OK that is better. So, who is on the bias-related response team, and do they have like super hero costumes? Oh no, that might offend someone with zero common sense, so I guess not. But seriously did you note who comprises said bias-related response team?

Members across Student Affairs including the Office of Multicultural Affairs and Fraternity and Sorority Life.

And, again this collection of idiots, morons, whiners,malcontents, buffoons and bed wetters is supposed to do what?

 Reach out to potentially impacted communities to offer support and follow-up.

Impacted communities? Excuse my French for a second but let me ask. Did these “communities get hit by a fucking tornado or flood? NO, they didn’t! Are their precious egos so hurt that they are in need of emergency help? Again no, a sorority held a simple fucking costume party! Anyone upset does not need coddling. It is likely they have been coddled far too much already. What they desperately need is to be told to shut up and get over themselves!

This is madness! And the students who are whining need to be stood up to. They are bullies, using emotion to get their way.

Micro-Aggression? More like Maximum BS

Today this happens in Canada, tomorrow in America if the Leftists has their way

A student at McGill University in Montreal, Canada was forced to issue a formal apology for emailing a picture of President Obama kicking open a door–all because some students thought the image was somehow racist.

The image was actually an edited .gif, and was shown by Jay Leno on “The Tonight Show” last fall. It humorously suggests that the president may be fed up with press conferences. McGill student Brian Farnan, vice president of the university’s student government, sent out an email with the .gif and the harmless caption, “Honestly midterms get out of here,” according to Legal Insurrection.

What happened next is almost unbelievable: Another student issued a formal complaint against Farnan for committing a “micro-aggression.”For those not up-to-date on the PC lexicon, “micro-aggression” is the latest phrase of choice for leftist radicals seeking to blame racism for common annoyances suffered by people of all races. Minority activists at the University of Michigan, for example, have insisted that trivial slights, such as “Having your opinion second-guessed in a group assignment,” are micro-aggressions that betray the campus as a hostile place for students of color.

The .gif of Obama kicking a door was racist because of the “cultural, historical and living legacy surrounding people of color—particularly young men—being portrayed as violent,” according to the apology letter that Farnan was forced to write.

This kid should have never apologized, and every student should have walked out of school until the school apologized to the student! No rational human being would support punishing this kid. Well, except that handful of backasswards malcontents like the whiner that filed the complaint, that support such Fascist rules. But they should grow up and stop thinking the entire world has to bend over backwards to appease them.

I laugh when Liberals almost get a clue, but then it’s gone

Roland Martin, who I destroyed on Twitter a while back almost gets it while discussing this story

A school principal in Washington State was suspended last week for allegedly using the n-word to explain the epithet to a group of students. Poulsbo Elementary School Principal Claudia Alves was apparently trying to teach the children the difference between the n-word and the word “negro,” and on Monday morning’s NewsOne Now, host Roland Martin defended her, saying that “This, to me, is stupid.”

According to news reports, students at the school were uncomfortable with the use of the word “negro” in a school play about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., so Alves allegedly stepped in to describe the difference between “negro” and the “n-word,” but used the actual word. She also used the word in a similar context in several followup conversations on the incident, and is now on leave, while the school is reportedly looking for an acting principal. 

On Monday morning, Roland Martin blasted the suspension, exclaiming “This, to me, is stupid,” adding “If you have a teacher, who is trying to teach, and explaining the n-word and ‘negro,’ and throw in ‘colored’ and let’s say throw in ‘African American,’ why do you suspend somebody who is trying to teach?”

That is a great question Roland, too bad you do not see it is people like you, people over obsessed with “sensitivity” and people obsessed with race that have created this environment where teaching can get teachers in trouble. You are correct to be outraged Roland, but if you want to lay some blame, you better start with the guy in the mirror.

See, Roland almost had a clue but then…

The War on Religious Freedom

Here goes the Left again

An 8-year-old autistic student, who brings his Bible to read during his free period, was told by his teacher not to bring it to school anymore, that the Bible is only for church, not school:

Oh Hell No! This type of crap will stop when people start getting fired!

Journalist’s as Transphobic Bastards! UPDATED!

One such journalist being Caleb Hannan, who made the mistake of pursuing a story according to Stacy McCain

On Oct. 18, 2013, MIT-trained aeronautical physicist Dr. Essay Anne Vanderbilt – a former Pentagon contractor who had worked on the Stealth bomber project — committed suicide, which must have been difficult: It’s hard to kill a person you invented.

Known as “Dr. V” in the world of golf, the person who died of an overdose last fall in Gilbert, Arizona, had won fame as the reclusive inventor of an innovative putter, the Yar Oracle GX1. What made the putter an overnight sensation in 2012 was its claim to scientific superiority on the basis of Dr. V’s advanced knowledge of physics.

Except “Dr. V” had no such knowledge and was not a Ph.D.

Never attended MIT. Apparently had no college degree at all.

As reporter Caleb Hannan learned, Essay Anne Vanderbilt was a Pennsylvania native whose birth name was Stephen Krol, a former auto mechanic who had been married and divorced twice before deciding, at about age 50, that he was a woman trapped in a man’s body.

Seven years ago, now living in Arizona, “Dr. Vanderbilt”  met Gerri Jordan, a retired Bank of America senior analyst, who became both Vanderbilt’s girlfriend and president of Yar Golf:

In 2008, [Vanderbilt] tried to kill herself with an overdose of prescription drugs and carbon monoxide poisoning from closing herself in a garage with her car running. A police report offered some explanations for why she might have tried to take her own life — Yar’s business was slow and Dr. V’s romantic relationship was on the ropes. She had recently fought with her girlfriend, Gerri Jordan, president of Yar Golf. Jordan told police that she and Dr. V were in a monogamous relationship and that they had gotten into an argument two days before. She had found Dr. V in the passenger seat of her car after the suicide attempt and tried to keep her awake. Jordan had also presumably been the first person to read the suicide note Dr. V had taped to the window of the car door, which read in part, “Tell Gorgeous Gerri that I love her.”

Narcissistic sociopaths have trouble coping with failure, and there can be little doubt that “Dr. Vanderbilt” was in fact a con man person, as Caleb Hannan discovered:

I heard from a mysterious “silent investor” whom both Jordan and Dr. V had alluded to in our previous talks. His name was Phil Kinney. He was a retiree from Pittsburgh and he said he wasn’t the only one who had put money into the company. He had invested $60,000 – money that he believed he’d never see again. . . .
Dr. V had told him that she was a $1,000-an-hour consultant. She said she was one of the original designers of Bluetooth technology. She even suggested that her status as a Vanderbilt provided access to some exclusive company who could help Yar’s business. Kinney said Dr. V told him she was good friends with the Hilton family, and that the relationship would pay off in the form of putters sold at their hotels. Kinney also recalled a trip he had taken to Arizona where, in Dr. V’s house, she had shown him a computer that she said mirrored the one in Phoenix’s airport traffic control tower.

This shameless liar had evidently conned the old man out of tens of thousands of dollars, and was hiding another busted scam:

I also found a lawsuit filed against the town of Gilbert, Arizona, in July 2007. The plaintiff’s name: Essay Vanderbilt, who had accused the town and three of its employees of sexual discrimination. The suit alleged that the previous year Vanderbilt was working as a “vehicle service writer” in Gilbert’s Fleet Management Division. In other words, at the same time that Dr. V claimed to have been working on top-secret government projects in D.C., she was actually coordinating car repairs for a Phoenix suburb. Vanderbilt didn’t win her case. . . .

The claim of sexual discrimination failed not merely because it was untrue, but also because Vanderbilt had lied her way into the job, making up jobs she never had and schools she never attended. Her entire existence was an enormous lie and, like all sociopaths, she feared nothing so much as exposure of the truth.

Once you know someone is a liar, it is impossible ever to trust them again, and the sociopath’s exploitation of credulity therefore depends on concealment of their deceptions.

Caleb Hannan is a reporter who followed the old newsroom maxim, “If your mother says she loves you, check it out.” And if someone tells you they are an MIT-trained physicist — especially if that claim is basic to their story — this is the kind of biographical fact a diligent reporter must verify. So when Caleb Hannan attempted to verify the facts about “Dr. Vanderbilt,” he quickly discovered that her story didn’t check out.

Then weird things started happening, things which might surprise people who haven’t had any experience dealing with sociopaths. “Dr. Vanderbilt” and her girlfriend Gerri Jordan claimed victimhood:

The last time I heard from Dr. V she warned me that I was about to commit a hate crime. But before that, I received a voice mail from Jordan.
Neither of them had contacted me in months, since I had sent an email trying to confirm what I had discovered, and Jordan wrote back to deny everything. “Your attack tale should be published in the National Enquirer,” Jordan wrote, “right next to the article on Martians … If I am to believe your diatribe, what you are telling golfers is that the most scientifically advanced Near Zero MOI putter, and the science of the Inertia Matrix was invented by a lesbian auto mechanic.”

Jordan and “Dr. Vanderbilt” threatened Caleb Hannan and accused him of crimes and you can real the whole thing.

Go read the rest and Stacy McCain has mote of this incredible story here, apparently ESPN has been suckered in too

Does this ESPN statement make any damned sense at all?

“We understand and appreciate the wide range of thoughtful reaction this story has generated and to the family and friends of Essay Anne Vanderbilt, we express our deepest condolences. We will use the constructive feedback to continue our ongoing dialogue on these important and sensitive topics. Ours is a company that values the LGBT community internally and in our storytelling, and we will all learn from this.”

The person known as Essay Anne Vanderbilt was, by all evidence, a sociopathic con artist who got caught. Period. End of sentence.

“Dr. Vanderbilt” was neither a doctor nor a Vanderbilt, and the bogus pretense to scientific superiority was inextricably connected to the phony persona who perpetrated that hoax.

Because “Dr. Vanderbilt” was born a male named Stephen Krol, the transgender aspect of the story was impossible to ignore and — I would argue, although the reporter Caleb Hannan has not — Krol/Vanderbilt’s gender dysphoria may have been one non-trivial symptom of what was clearly a disordered, dishonest and dysfunctional personality.

At the core of the #JusticeForDrV crusade seems to be the idea that Caleb Hannan’s reporting drove “Dr. Vanderbilt” to suicide, by threatening to “out” her as a transgender, even though there is no evidence that anyone who actually knew ”Dr. Vanderbilt” in Arizona ever mistook her for a genetic woman.

For crying out loud: When a 6-foot-3 middle-aged man gets a sex change, the resul is unlikely to be particularly . . . persuasive.

Beyond that, how was Caleb Hannan supposed to report that “Dr. Vanderbilt” was a phony — not an MIT-trained aeronautical physicist, as the hype for the Yar putter had claimed — without reporting that, during the years that “Dr. Vanderbilt” was supposedly working as a Pentagon contractor helping design stealth aircraft, “Dr. Vanderbilt” was working as an auto mechanic named Stephen Krol?

The Left LOVES victims, and creating victims, even if they are not real victims. And woe to anyone who tries to expose the truth. And Donald Douglas, is also feeling the heat for being, get ready for it- “hetero-privileged”

Here’s the report, “Injustice at Every Turn: A Report of the National Transgender Discrimination Survey.”

It’s a serious thing, although that’s just the executive summary. Leftist Sarah Lennoxwas tweeting it out last night to argue (unsuccessfully) from authority. She was trying to attack and shame me as “hetero-privileged.” I smacked that back down hard and after a few more interactions, she left the field bloodied:
@Sarah_LNX You’re now attacking me as privileged? That’s rich. Who are you to judge my privilege. Check my TL. My grandparents were slaves.

Crazy ain’t pretty folks, but it is an equal opportunity affliction, be it Gay, Straight, Male, female, of Transgender!

Political Correctness and our military do not mix

Sometimes you just want to throw our hands up

The night of Sept. 1, 2009, Echo Platoon of Navy SEAL Team 10 headed out into the Fallujah night. Their goal: concluding a five-year search for the al Qaeda killer who had been responsible for the shocking 2004 murders of four American military contractors — one of them an ex-SEAL — whose bodies were then burned, dragged through the streets and hanged from a bridge.

This night the SEALs departed with these words from their commanding officer: “Gents, stay sharp, and expect a firefight.”

In the event, no shots were fired, but the SEALs faced another kind of ambush: a humiliating, baffling, infuriating struggle with the military-justice system that would end with an unsatisfying victory.

Because the man those SEALs captured — Ahmad Hashim Abd Al-Isawi, aka “the Butcher of Fallujah,” a man who lived for mayhem — somehow sustained a bloody lip on the night of his capture.

Go read the rest, it is sickening. How can we expect these men to do the jobs they must do under such inane rules of engagement?

 

If Silent Night offends you, then that is a YOU problem

I am so tired of these weasel Progressive’s, and equally tired of people who try to appease them

You can’t take Jesus out of “Silent Night,” you pathetic secular public school demons.

Gateway Pundit has it, “Long Island School Removes Words From Silent Night – Too Offensive (Video).” (Via Memeorandum.)

Baseball to ban collisions at Home Plate

The wussification of America continues, much to the dismay of one Stacy McCain

The collision at home plate between a runner trying to score and a catcher trying to make the tag — dude, that’s baseball.

So the news that Major League Baseball is planning to ban home plate collisions has sparked outrage from fans.

No, it might not be the biggest deal in the world, and yes, baseball fans whine over silly things, like inter-league play, or realignment, but seriously, this is a silly needless rule change. And just another chapter in the war on men and on competition the Left has been engaged in for decades.

 

Have you seen the Super Offensive Super Bowl ad banned by the NFL?

My patience with the NFL is wearing thin. From not allowing Rush Limbaugh to be part of a ownership group, to the inane rules no one can understand, to the often mediocre product on the field, and oddly enough, the increasingly sanitized and awful Super Bowl ads, to this bit of PC

By the way, the company offered to switch the company logo that appears at the end of the spot for an American flag. The NFL still ruled the ad “offensive”

According to a statement from FOX to Daniel Defense, “Unfortunately, we cannot accept your commercial in football/Super Bowl spots due to the rules the NFL itself has set into place for your company’s category.”

The NFL’s Advertising Policy addresses several Prohibited Advertising Categories, including guidelines for ads featuring alcohol, video games, movies, prescription drugs, and, of course, firearms.

The firearms portion of the NFL’s Prohibited Advertising Categories states:

“5. Firearms, ammunition or other weapons are prohibited; however, stores that sell firearms and ammunitions (e.g., outdoor stores and camping stores) will be permitted, provided they sell other products and the ads do not mention firearms, ammunition or other weapons.”

According to these guidelines, Daniel Defense’s Super Bowl commercial does not violate NFL policy for two reasons:

  • Daniel Defense has a brick-and-mortar store, where they sell products other than firearms such as apparel.
  • The commercial itself does not mention firearms, ammunition or weaponry.

While Daniel Defense’s commercial does not mention firearms, it does include a logo of their DDM4 rifle at the very end.

When the NFL denied the ad, Daniel Defense immediately offered to replace the DDM4 logo with an American flag and/or the words “Shall not be infringed.”

The NFL replied with another non-negotiable denial.

Allowing teams to shill for ObamaCare, though? That is OK of course, but an ad that talks about basic liberties and responsibilities? OFFENSIVE!

 

Outrageously Outrageous Outrage! Man wears costume to a costume party, causes out break of Offendeditis!

Good Freaking Grief!

HOPKINSVILLE, KY. (Fox 17) — A picture of a Jennie Stuart Medical Center employee wearing a President Barack Obama mask and straitjacket at the hospital’s annual costume party has stirred debate.

Along with the costume (pictured above), a skit called “VIP Special Delivery” was performed, winning the group third place in the costume contest.

As a result, all 750 employees have now been required to take diversity training. The VP of Human Resources at the medical center issued a statement to staff apologizing for anyone who was offended and personally took responsibility since the incident occurred on his watch.

I actually wonder if anyone complained, or if the douche nozzle from HR just it upon themselves to order the employees to undergo re-education therapy. I tell y’all, it has become impossible to parody these PC morons, they parody themselves so well already.. If I am running this company, I rescind the order for “diversity training” and fire the VP of HR PDQ!
