AFA attacks Chevrolet for remembering that gay people have families, buy cars

by Jeremy Hooper

Screen Shot 2014-02-14 At 3.55.07 PmThe ads in question feature actual families, not actors. Yet according to the rabidly pro-discrimination, proudly anti-LGBT American Family Association, Chevy just "threw in a couple of couple of children to help legitimize the impression":

If you've watched any of the Olympics, you've probably already noticed that NBC is using the games as a pro-gay platform. The network hasn't missed any opportunity to promote the homosexual lifestyle to millions of American viewers.

Chevrolet is helping drive the crusade to normalize two men having sex with each other as a "family." They threw in a couple of children to help legitimize the impression.

On the opening night of the Olympics on NBC, Chevrolet launched two commercials showcasing homosexual men. As one national branding firm manager put it, "It's a very clear statement of what they believe Chevy stands for." Indeed.

One ad showed quick shots of many different families, including a male couple with a son and a daughter.

Another ad featured different images of America, including a shot of a gay couple getting married. "Like the old love, the new love starts with a kiss," a voiceover states.

It's so absurd. I mean, just consider the flip side. Can you imagine an ad that features AFA staffers going about their business of condemning certain kinds of humans? No, you can't, because it would never happen. Corporate America will never again put the AFA view front and center because the AFA view is awful.

And I can't help but note the irony of AFA telling people to go on Facebook and Twitter to convey their upset:

Psst, AFA—those companies very much dislike your agenda! Go ahead and boycott them. Hell, boycott everything. While you're "tsk, tsk"—ing into the changing wind, the rest of us will be drinking, eating, driving, playing, status-updating, loving—and just generally living.
