Hallmark bends the knee to lgbt twitter hordes, will reinstate lesbian Zola ad
One Angry Gamer ^ | December 16th 2019 | BBC News

Posted on 12/16/2019 6:56:23 AM PST by Ennis85

It’s being reported that just a day after LGBTQIA+ fanatics made the hashtag #BoycottHallmark trend on Twitter, the Crown Media team that opertaes the Hallmark brands decided to issue a letter on December 15th, 2019 apologizing to the LGBTQIA+ community and vowing to reinstate the Zola ad featuring a lesbian couple kissing during their wedding.

Axios picked up the news after Hallmark sent out the letter, the relevant part of which reads…

"Hallmark is, and always have been, committed to diversity and inclusion – both in our workplace as well as the products and experiences we create. It is never Hallmark’s intention to be divisive or generate controversy. We are an inclusive company and have a track record to prove it. We have LGBTQ greeting cards and feature LGBTQ couples in commercials. We have been recognized as one of America’s Best Employers for Diversity. We have been a progressive pioneer on television for decades – telling wide ranging stories that elevate the human spirit such as August Wilson’s The Piano Lesson and Colm Toibin’s The Blackwater Lightship, both which highlight the importance of tolerance and understanding.

“Hallmark will be working with GLAAD to better represent the LGBTQ community across our portfolio of brands. The Hallmark Channel will be reaching out to Zola to reestablish our partnership and reinstate the commercials.”

So basically, score another big win for the Rainbow Reich.

Any and everything they want, they get. Any and everything they say, others do.

This has become the standard trend for today’s society, where a vocal minority literally dictates the entire course of Western culture, whether it be in literature, comic books, television, movies, or video games. They always get what they want.

If they want something banned, they get it. If they want something unbanned… they typically get that, too.

I’m curious how Hallmark’s regular viewers will take to this change in the company’s ideological disposition? The channel’s core demographic skew straight females between 18 and 54, according to Broadcasting Cable and the Nielsen Media ratings. Will they continue to just scarf down any kind of views they don’t agree with until they become complacent with the message being peddled by the propagandists? Or will they stop watching Hallmark?

We’ll I guess we’ll find out when the numbers for the holiday quarter drops.

Apparently they did not get the memo from the UK election that Twitter is a very BAD way to gauge public opinion.

This should be when they discover just how big the two audience groups involved really are. The LGBTOMGWTFBBQ nitwits are a tiny percentage of the US population, and probably an even tinier percentage of the Hallmark Channel’s audience demographic. The Normal people are an overwhelming percentage of the US, and of Hallmark’s viewers. If the Normals simply stop watching, can Hallmark make up the shortfall with LGBTOMGWTFBBQ?

No. They don't watch the Hallmark Channel, and they didn't shop at J.C. Penney either.

Why would they do that? Hallmark always featured wholesome, mostly moral characters in normal relationships. What letter people would be watching that in the first place? My guess is it is not so much to sell anything to them, but rather an attempt to “normalize” queer. Notice they start with a couple of semi attractive lesbians. They will move on to two males kissing. Soon there will be queers as main characters “hoping to find love” like normal people. May as well stop watching now. And I was so looking forward to the next season of Aurora Teagarden Mysteries.

And another one bites the dust. I know that Hallmark is only one, but with the late dearly departed CFA and numerous others we don’t even know about, it adds up. Reminds me of something Crist said regarding the End Times. Luke 18:8 and context: “When the Son of man returns, will He find faith on the Earth?”

To those who think boycotts are effective - here’s your chance to prove it.

Target just had a banner year, by the way, stock price is skyrocketing.

What a farce. The “LGBTQ community” is really about 1% to 2% of the population who do nothing but promote their warped lifestyle that is based upon mental illness and perversion. They pick up a couple more percent of part time advocates who want their claim to victimhood but vanish when push comes to shove. Their presence is a stark reminder that our society is in decline.

So they basically have no core values.

Well, the upside of this is that I no longer have to suffer through my wife and daughter’s insufferable addiction to this miserable channel with its cookie-cutter plots.

Wait, boycotts did work. Hallmark reinstated the ad in response to calls for boycotts by the Gay Mafia.

I hope Hallmark realizes the LBGTQKL+ segment of the population represents a very, very small percentage. Under 5%.

How many LGBT people even watch the Hallmark channel?? How many viewers do they think they’ll lose?
I guess advertisers must have piled on and threatened to pull their ads. sad
