Volkswagen Commercial Banned in UK Because it Shows Woman Caring For a Baby

“The ad presented gender stereotypes in way that was likely to cause harm.”

Published

A Volkswagen commercial has been banned in the UK for violating “gender stereotypes” because it showed a woman caring for a baby.

Yes, really.

The ad shows a scene of a woman and a man in a tent on a cliff face, two male astronauts floating in a spaceship and a male para-athlete with a prosthetic leg doing the long jump.

At the end of the clip, a woman is seen sat on a bench next to a pram.

The commercial was banned by the UK Advertising Standard Authority (ASA) after just three people complained, with the ASA asserting that it violated gender stereotyping rules.

“By juxtaposing images of men in extraordinary environments and carrying out adventurous activities with women who appeared passive or engaged in a stereotypical care-giving role, we considered that the ad directly contrasted stereotypical male and female roles and characteristics in a manner that gave the impression that they were exclusively associated with one gender,” said the ASA. “We concluded that the ad presented gender stereotypes in way that was likely to cause harm and therefore breached the Code.”

Volkswagen tried to explain the meaning behind the ad, but it was to no avail.

“The core message of the ad was centred on the ability of the human spirit to adapt to challenges and change brought about by circumstances. They illustrated that through a number of different scenarios featuring various characters so that as diverse an audience as possible would be able to identify with the message.”

“They included the final scene of the woman in the park as a relatable example of adaptation to change, as they believed that welcoming a newborn into the family was a life changing experience that would be shared by many viewers, regardless of gender. The scene served a secondary purpose of illustrating the reduction of engine noise in an electric vehicle.”

Meanwhile, ads that reinforce negative gender stereotypes about men are still perfectly fine.

Ads showing an attractive woman in a bikini are banned on the London Underground, but ads promoting the homophobic country of Brunei which stones gay people to death are also fine.

The ASA also banned an ad featuring a sexy female mechanic after a single complaint because it could cause “offense” and was sexually suggestive.

So ads showing woman engaged in typically feminine roles are forbidden and ads showing women engaged in typically masculine roles are forbidden.

NBA Store Refuses to Sell ‘Free Hong Kong’ Jersey, But Does Sell ‘Kill Cops’ Shirt

Woke hypocrisy of basketball franchise exposed once again.

Published

The NBA store is refusing to sell jerseys emblazoned with the words ‘Free Hong Kong’, but is perfectly happy to sell ‘Kill Cops’ shirts.

“I’m on the phone with the NBA store right now,” tweeted David Hookstead. “Sales rep says I can’t buy a FreeHongKong jersey, but I can buy a KillCops jersey if I want one.”

Audio of a phone call posted by Hookstead appears to confirm that buyers can choose to have their jersey say ‘Kill Cops’ but not ‘Free Hong Kong’ at the point of purchase.

YouTuber Mark Dice confirmed that jerseys printed with the words ‘Kill Cops’ were available for purchase.

The refusal to sell ‘Free Hong Kong’ jerseys is a continuation of the NBA’s tacit support for the Communist Chinese regime that has oppressed democracy activists since riots erupted last year and recently passed a “national security law” which makes it easier for China to target and punish dissenters within Hong Kong.

Last October, Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey tweeted in support of the Hong Kong protest movement, prompting China to pull almost all sponsorship and NBA broadcasts and forcing the NBA into a groveling apology.

By siding with one of the biggest human rights abusers on the planet to financially protect its franchise, the NBA has made a mockery of its simultaneous woke virtue signaling domestically in support of Black Lives Matter and other purported social justice causes.

UK Police Brag About Arresting 12-Year-Old Boy For Offensive Social Media Posts

Child’s life ruined after mass denunciation.

UK police bragged about arresting a 12-year-old boy for offensive social media posts sent to a multi-millionaire Premier League footballer.

The child was arrested after he sent racist messages to Wilfried Zaha telling the Crystal Palace star “you better not score tomorrow you black cunt,” along with images of the Ku Klux Klan.

Zaha shared the Instagram page belonging to the boy with his 885,000 Twitter followers, prompting massive media denunciations of the child and an immediate police investigation.

“We were alerted to a series of racist messages sent to a footballer today and after looking into them and conducting checks, we have arrested a boy,” tweeted West Midlands Police.

“The 12-year-old from #Solihull has been taken to custody. Thanks to everyone who raised it. Racism won’t be tolerated.”

While the entirety of the media failed to even ask whether it was proportionate for a 12-year-old boy to have his life ruined over a few stupid social media posts, respondents on Twitter offered a different perspective.

“You’ve arrested 12 year old for an offensive tweet. Impressive. Good to know resources are being directed appropriately,” remarked one.

“43k extremists on the mi5 terrorist watch list walking around free, but a 12yo has been arrested so we can all sleep safe,” commented another.

Others chastised the very same police force for failing to tackle far more serious crimes than a 12-year-old boy being offensive.

In the age of mass public shaming and online hate mobs, the power dynamic of a 12-year-old boy being up against the might of law enforcement, a multi-billion dollar industry and the condemnation of the mass media is not even considered for a second.

He is a thought criminal and his life is now decimated.

USA Today Slammed For Repeating Idiotic Claim That Trump Campaign T-Shirt Has ‘Nazi Symbol’

Nazis… everywhere.

Published

USA Today was ritually torn apart on Twitter this past weekend after it ‘fact checked’ as “true” claims that an official Trump 2020 t-shirt features a ‘Nazi symbol’.

The t-shirt features a bald eagle clasping the US flag, a common symbol in American politics for centuries, and one that is found in many seals of government agencies, and on US money.

The idea that it is some kind of Nazi symbol was dredged up again by anti-Trump groups such as the Lincoln Project and Jewish ‘progressive’ activists Bend the Arc:

Nevertheless, USA Today effectively repeated the idiotic claim, and was quickly subject to a huge wave of condemnation, forcing it to issue a ‘clarifying’ statement:

The article that the tweet links to, written by Will Peebles, admits that the eagle in the Trump t-shirt design is a stock image, and has “key differences” to the symbol used by the Nazi party in the 1930s.

Nevertheless, the ‘fact check: true’ tweet was clearly misleading click bait.

The responses were devastating:
