‘Glorifying Unnatural Marriage’: One Million Moms Steaming Hot Over Campbell’s Soup Ad With Gay Dads

Published

on

One Million Moms is attacking Campbell’s over an adorable ad that features real gay dads with their real son.

For years, One Million Moms – aka 80,000 busybodies on Facebook – has created controversy where there is none by attacking huge corporations for advertisements and TV shows that do not conform to their antediluvian world view. 

Today’s latest beneficiary of OMM’s undue attention is Campbell’s Soup. The epitome of American wholesomeness – Campbell’s has been around for nearly 150 years – they have created a new ad campaign celebrating “real, real life,” by depicting real, real people and families. One of those is an adorable real-life family of two dads and their son, which NCRM reported on this week. 

OMM had a different reaction.

“A homosexual ‘married’ couple is featured prominently with a young boy (their son) in the new Campbell’s Soup advertisement,” One Million Moms writes on Facebook. “Campbell’s #‎RealRealLife campaign aims to change the face of the American family,” they war, apparently unaware the face of the American family is constantly changing.

“It starts off with the first man feeding soup to the little boy and in a ‘Star Wars’ Darth Vader voice says, ‘Luke, I am your father.’ Then the other man enters the scene and says, ‘No, Luke, I am your father.'”

“How confusing for this little boy and for all children viewing this commercial,” OMM exclaims. Of course, study after study proves children raised by same-sex parents do just as well as children raised by different-sex parents, so the only ones confused are anti-gay blowhards like the American Family Association’s One Million Moms. 

“Obviously, Campbell’s is sending the message that homosexual men are raising children, whom they wouldn’t have if a woman wasn’t involved, and they are ok with it,” OMM says. “Campbell’s Soup is glorifying this unnatural marriage. One Million Moms believes family is based on love, but this does not justify normalizing sin. Companies should advertise the quality of their products. It is no longer about the product but about their cause.”

So now One Million Moms is in the advertising business? The Campbell’s ads were conceived by one of the world’s largest and most respected ad agencies, BBDO.

“They should not be highlighting who is attracted to whom or who sleeps with whom. This is a marketing decision Campbell’s will regret,” OMM adds on their website. “This gay-inclusive commercial is attempting to desensitize viewers. There is concern about the way this ad is pushing the LGBT agenda, but an even greater concern is the way that they are attempting to redefine ‘family’ and ‘real marriage.'”

One Million Moms is asking their followers to call Campbell’s at 1-800-257-8443 to complain. We think it’s time to turn the tables on OMM. It would be great for people to call or write Campbell’s to thank them for the ad, and urge them to not pull it down.

Here’s the ad:

‘Superficial’: Trump Mocked for Finally Releasing ‘Health Care Plan’ – Which Is Really a ‘Toothless’ Executive Order

Donald Trump, World Health Organization

For at least four years President Donald Trump has been promising the American people a health care plan. He famously sat for the “60 Minutes” cameras just days after the 2016 election and said, “this is what I do I do a good job I mean I know how to do this stuff.”

He promised his new health care plan would protect the millions of Americans with pre-existing conditions and would be “great health care for much less money.”

After years of promises Trump on Thursday unveiled his “health care plan.”

He’s calling it his “health care vision” because it’s not an actual plan, it’s a wish list.

And it’s a mere executive order.

“The actual policies,” Stat News reports, “however, are simple, superficial, and non-binding executive orders. Neither will improve the quality of Americans’ health care or lower its cost.

The Daily Beast’s Sam Stein reports HHS Sec. Alex Azar earlier in the day was forced to admit “Trump’s forthcoming executive order on preexisting conditions will not carry weight of actual law should SCOTUS strike down the ACA [Obamacare, or the Affordable Care Act.] Said it is a ‘defined statement of U.S. policy that people with preexisting conditions are protected.'”

Here’s how Stein sums up Trump’s big reveal:

Here’s MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle:

Stein is far from alone in mocking Trump’s “plan.”

Here’s how Buzzfeed sums it up:

Trump Rages on Ballots: ‘I’m Not Sure’ the Election Can Be ‘Honest’

Published

on

President Donald Trump is not backing down from his attempts to sow chaos into the minds of Americans just 40 days until the election. Now he says he’s “not sure” that the election can be “honest,” without providing any actual proof other than mischaracterized anecdotes.

After refusing to commit to a peaceful transfer of power on Wednesday Trump was asked Thursday afternoon if the election results are only legitimate if he wins.

“So, we have to be very careful with the ballots – the ballots that’s a whole big scam,” Trump said from the South Lawn of the White House.

“You know they found I understand eight ballots in a wastepaper basket in some location, they found it was reported in one of the newspapers that they found a lot of ballots in a river. They throw them out if they have the name ‘Trump’ on it I guess,” the President falsely claimed. A reporter immediately corrected him, saying there were no names on the ballots.

“Okay, well they still found them in a river whether they had a name on it or not but the other ones had the Trump name on it. And they were thrown into a wastepaper basket.

NCRM could find no reports of ballots being found in a river.

“We want to make sure the election is honest and I’m not sure that it can be. I don’t, I don’t know that it can be, with this whole situation – unsolicited ballots they’re unsolicited, millions being sent to everybody and we’ll see but if you remember Hillary Clinton just a week ago or so told Joe Biden do not accept the results of the election under any circumstances. But you don’t ask her that question you only asked me the question.”

It’s been almost exactly four years since Trump won the election and beat Hillary Clinton but he still talks about her.

‘Deranged’: McEnany Slams Dems and Attacks Reporter Who Asked if Trump Would Commit to Peaceful Transition of Power

Published

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany is attacking the veteran journalist who asked President Donald Trump on Wednesday if he would commit to a peaceful transition of power and accepting the results of the November election.

After pretending she wasn’t familiar with the question from Brian Karem or President Donald Trump’s bombshell answer – he refused to commit to a peaceful transition, thus the effectively threatening a violent coup – McEnany referred to Brian Karem as a “Playboy reporter” and called his question “deranged.”

She repeatedly called him that “Playboy reporter” – he is a respected White House correspondent for Playboy and is also a CNN political analyst.

McEnany then attacked Democrats, saying they are the ones who should be asked to accept the election results after expressing valid concerns about Trump’s intentions.

McEnany’s response was unprofessional given President Trump for years has suggested he would not support a peaceful transition of power.
