Instead of using the coveted opportunity to run a commercial during the Super Bowl this weekend to advertise its brand like a normal company, the mobile communications retailer T-Mobile chose to waste it promoting the Democrat Party’s political vision for America.
The ad, which The Daily Caller estimated cost a total of $10 million to air, specifically used “footage of adorable babies to promote equal pay, diversity and same-sex marriage,” according to Breitbart.
“Welcome to the world, little one,” the narrator began. “Yeah, a lot to take in. But you come with open minds and an instinct that we are equal. Some people may see your differences and be threatened by them. But you are unstoppable.”
And quite alive, which cannot be said of the millions of unborn babies who’ve been murdered by the left’s most beloved non-profit, Planned Parenthood.
“You’ll love who you want,” the narrator continued. “You’ll demand fair and equal pay. You will not allow where you come from to dictate where you’re going. You will be heard — not dismissed.
“You will be connected — not alone. Change starts now. Are you with us?”
Sure, except “fair and equal pay” already exists.
Watch the ad below:
The commercial was nothing but a hodgepodge of leftist talking points centered on the left’s mission to transform America into a utopia where everybody doesn’t necessarily look the same, but they think the same, act the same and live the same.
“We think this is a national conversation, certainly one of unity but primarily of equality,” said T-Mobile’s executive vice president of marketing at experience, Nick Drake, in an interview Monday with Adweek.
“The problem with the word equality is that it means many things. We wanted to highlight some of the things we find particularly important and where T-Mobile has been making great strides,” he added.
He was right about equality meaning many “things.” To conservatives, equality means equal opportunity, but not necessarily equal outcomes. And as noted by Avik Roy of National Review a couple years back, “This opportunity-oriented conservatism sees individual liberty as the key driver of equal opportunity.”
Choice, in other words. Regarding the wage gap myth touted by the left, for instance, it fails to take into consideration “a lot of choices that women and men make — education, years of experience and hours worked — that influence earnings,” according to Karin Agness Lips of Forbes magazine.
But liberals like Drake don’t seem to care for this fact. Nor are they too concerned with the lack of choice proffered to unborn babies who are targeted for execution.
And therein lies the problem with the left’s vision of a utopia — it’s built on contradictions, lies and obfuscations.
And sorry, but a world based on falsehood doesn’t sound that appealing to me.
