Ellen DeGeneres Christmas commercial upsets One Million Moms (JCPenney is at it again...)
NBC ^ | 12/6/12 | Gael Fashingbauer Cooper

Posted on 12/06/2012 11:02:41 AM PST by jimbo123

The commercial itself is hardly controversial. Comedian and talk-show host Ellen DeGeneres, wearing holiday-themed gloves and hat, sits at a diner table with three of Santa's elves. She asks them to make more toys for a JC Penney contest, and ends up accidentally insulting the tiny little helpers with a bunch of clumsy short jokes.

This is what happens when you hire faggots to run your corporate executive operations.

The commercial is cute. However you wouldn’t see any queer elves fielding gay jokes.

If you have any stock in JCP, sell it. Now! They’ll never learn.

Well I guess she will not be very popular with fat people and little people this Christmas! Notice she didn’t make jokes about Black people, Muslims or people on the Gov. TiT!

JC Penney needs to close their stores and just keep their catalog departments open. I never ever buy anything from their stores anymore. All my shopping at JC Penney is going through their catalog dept.

One Million Moms ought to chill. There’s nothing offensive in the commercial. It seems that their only issue is that she is a lesbian. She doesn’t mention it, doesn’t say anything about 2 mommies.... so what’s their problem?

I’ve got mixed feelings on this one. I actually find Ellen quite likeable - when I watch her as a comedienne. I really wish she would have kept her sexual prefs to herself...because those things are really none of anyone’s business. I don’t give a smelly Obama about who she boinks.

Ellen DeGeneres is offensive. And so is JCPenney for not firing that bulldyke as their spokesman.

I was PLEASANTLY surprised to see the word “Christmas” in the ad. Kudos for that, anyhow.

I stopped shopping JC Penney because they stink. They had to change the way they advertise and price rather than keeping things great like they had for 30+ years.

Then they wanted to reverse course and pander to queers thinking that they could make up for their mistake in changing what customers liked.

Giant corporations are the political correctness enforcers.

Forget the American culture, we have the new corporatation enforced politically correct new normal.

Strange that more people do not recognise that fact.

Many people find her offensive because she is a Bull Dyke.
A mind sick pervert.
Period.

Even here we see people who accept Homosexuality.I will never accept it. It offends me.
I can accept their sickness but not their efforts to claim it to be normal and right. That is offensive.

That’s just it, they say it’s no ones buisness then spend the rest of the time throwing their sexuality in your face.

DeGeneres is a face of the left’s homosexual agenda, and activist, conservatives need to resist her propagandizing, and that of those who seek her face out to promote her agenda.

Have we lost so much that we can’t see her lifestyle as perverted and exploitative, as X-rated, and totally anti-family, anti-CHRISTmas?

Ellen isn’t an in-your-face, obnoxious, aggressive, and stupid lesbian, like (for instance) Rosie O’Donnell.

I don't get it

There is nothing about sex in the ad, no mention of it or hint of Ellen's personal life

To be enraged because a prominent lesbian actress gets
a commercial gig is akin to McCarthyism and makes us ALL look BAD

So what now- no homosexual actors or actresses are supposed to be hired anymore?

now, ads that PROMOTE homosexuality far different and what I THOUGHT this group was about. They just lost their credibility

James Cash Penney was a Christian. He was a Baptist. A Freemason, A member of the Scottish and York Rites. I could be wrong in saying this, But “I don’t believe he would like the direction his company has gone.”

??

The new JC Penney CEO has overtly gone pro-gay in everything This ad is not “overt” but it is still part of the pattern. Ellen was hired BECAUSE she is a prominent homosexual, which continues the Penney pattern.

I’d love to see them go bankrupt

Ellen Degeneres is America's Lesbian.

It's an official title now, sort of like poet laureate.

Just kidding.

No, they don't. And they likely won't even after the doors close. They'll blame 'homophobes' while completely ignoring the topic of family values.

Years ago, Ellen had a cute, funny and, as far as I remember, clean, sitcom; but as soon as she got any celebrity status, it seems she just immediately came out with the “agenda”. - Why can’t they just SHUT UP about who she “sleeps” with; it is the most fickle and boring subject one could imagine? - At that time, she was involved with a cute little blonde starlet who was evidently confused about her preferences. The girl (don’t remember her name) showed up one night out in a residential area having been (allegedly) thrown out of the house she shared with Ellen. The girl later married a guy.

I agree. This sort of thing seriously hurts our cause, in my opinion. But maybe it’s already lost, in this regard.
Either way, I don’t like the hate. My disgust over homosexuality is irrelevant, and God willing will remain directed at the sin and not the sinner.
I don’t mean to point out motes in eyes and so on, just that it is easy to forget and I like to remind myself.

JCpenny is on the “no buy” list.

also one of the biggest loser stocks for the year.

doubling down on the freakshow is not a good way to save a company.

I agree. The mere presence of lesbian doesn't sell homosexuality. Aside from her somewhat butch haircut, there's no indication she's a lesbian. Who cares?

“The new JC Penney CEO has overtly gone pro-gay in everything”

Yea, that's a winning corporate strategy for a company which lost $152m last year: let's appeal to the 4-5% of the population that is LGBT and turn off the vast majority of folks who are tired of having people's sex lives put front and center of every TV show and advertising campaign.

I agree. Their main objection seems to be that Ellen is a lesbian, even though she says nothing to indicate that in the commercial.

Anne Heche is her name and most people think she was with Ellen in order to gain publicity. She had a career for a while but I think the brief stint as a lesbo with Ellen ruined it for her instead of helping her career.

The reason Ellen kicked her out was because Anne was dating men right along and keeping it hidden. Saturday Night Live did a sketch on one of their programs about it back in the day.

Anne Heche was married to a guy named Coleman Laffoon and they had a child they named Homer.

She’s still working, according to IMDB she’s been in a couple tv series, some recent movies some in post-production. Maybe mixed up, but still employed.

I don’t think she was ever mixed up, she was just using Ellen. The last movie I remember her doing was “Six days, Seven Nights” with Harrison Ford. Not a bad movie, IMO.
