Recently I was reading This article about Ford's advertising in gay magazines. I'm sure some of you people reading this have heard, but some of you probably haven't. Ford was advertising their vehicles (That means all their Makes, not just "Ford", such as Lincoln, Mazda, Jaguar, etc) in gay, or what we shall call 'alternative sexuality' themed magazines.
The AFA, American Family Association, decided that this was A Bad Thing™ and decided to boycott Ford over this.
Ford pulled their ads.
The gay rights groups started shit with Ford because of it. Now Ford says they pulled the ads to save money and be a little smarter about their advertising's targetting. This is something that all companies do, so we'll give them the benefit of the doubt. Still, it pissed off the gay rights community, and made the AFA
So Ford talks it over with the gay rights groups and they decided to, once again, use their magazine for advertising.
Enter the loudmouthed conservate bullshit again.
"We had an agreement with Ford, worked out in good faith. Unfortunately, some Ford Motor Co. officials made the decision to violate the good faith agreement," AFA Chairman Don Wildmon said in a news release Thursday. "We are now considering our response to the violation and expect to reach a decision very soon."
You people make it sound like goddamn war! You make it sound like a goddamn broken contract. Allow me to inform you morons - NO ONE CARES WHAT YOU THINK! Ford doesn't, I don't, and half this country thinks you're all goddamn retarded.
But, moving on, we get to the gem of the rant. The whole reason I started writing this. This one, seemingly innocent quote:
"All we wanted was for Ford to refrain from choosing sides in the cultural war, and supporting groups which promote same-sex marriage is not remaining neutral," Wildmon said.
Hypochristianity!!! Granted it's hard to take a man seriously when he has the intelligence of a third grader, as well as the name of a goddamn digimon. But here Mr Wildmon, who we all assume you digivolve into Crusadermon, allow me the pleasure of posting this:
1. Not aligned with, supporting, or favoring either side in a war, dispute, or contest.
2. Belonging to neither side in a controversy: on neutral ground.
3. Belonging to neither kind; not one thing or the other.
Obviously, idiot, you don't know what the hell neutral means. Ford is NOT neutral if they AGREE WITH EVERYTHING THAT SPEWS OUT OF YOUR MOUTH! Or your ass, but given the nature of your 'projects', we all assume that what spews from your mouth and your ass is one in the same.
Moving on. Ford isn't supporting jack shit. They are infact, advertising. This is a necessary part of, say, selling stuff. If they were donating money out of the blue to gay rights groups, then you might have a leg to stand on. Marketing, on the other hand, isn't 'supporting' them. It's "we'll pay you and you put our name here so anyone that reads this will buy our shit."
NEUTRALITY would mean that Ford can post ads in both GAY magazines as well as CONSERVATIVE magazines. But let me guess, your idiotic ilk won't let Ford advertise in their mags huh? That doesn't mean Ford isn't being neutral, it means you're sidelining!
Go American Fallacious Association! We put the ASS in association!
I am just fucking appalled that they think 'neutral' means 'side with us'. That's not neutral, infact, that's the very OPPOSITE of neutral. If you people really wanted neutrality, you'd shut the fuck up! We don't care about your morals! We don't care about your unfounded hatred! We don't care about YOU!
But we do care enough, to rant about you - because you give us so much material.
