Chevrolet Showcases Gay Families In Olympics Opening Ceremony Ad
NBC News ^ | 2/8/2014 | Ben Popken

Posted on 02/07/2014 2:40:03 PM PST by LonelyCon

Coming just a week after Coke made waves when it aired the first Super Bowl ad to showcase a set of same-sex parents, the car-maker's new campaign is called "The New Us" and portrays a series of wide-ranging families.

"And while what it means to be a family hasn't changed," intones the Chevrolet narration over clips that include nuclear families, mixed race couples, adoptive parents, gay and lesbian parents, combinations of the above, and others, "what a family looks like, has. This is the new us."

The games have been criticized for taking place in Russia, which has made "gay propaganda" illegal. Earlier this week the deputy prime minister of Russia warned gay Olympic athletes not to touch children.

Chevrolet's new ad was welcomed by the gay community.

Coca-Cola just showed homosexuals in fleeting shot, but Chevy has taken it a step further with this tag-line: "And while what it means to be family hasn't changed, what a family looks like, has. This is the new us." My head spins sometimes from how fast this country is changing. I want to get off this ride.

Yep, but it fits in with the taking down of the values system in the nation, and the Left buys into that lock stock and barrel. You can bet this appeals to about 40% of the nation.

It’s nice to see that General Motors is targeting the 2% of the population that has not already put them on a lifetime boycott list over the massive corruption of the GM bailout. As for me, there is no way in the world that I would buy a new or used GM vehicle for any reason ever, for the rest of my life. I also will not accept a GM as a rental, nor will I buy GM parts for repairs to a vehicle made by a less corrupt company. GM is dead to me - I don’t deal with crooks.

Based on statistics there are approximately 5.5 million self described homosexuals in this country around 1.75%. Based on the TV networks and hoopla there are around 100 Million.

It's not an overabundance of homosexuals, it's the militant Left pushing the homosexual narrative because they know it's the most disgusting imagery to real conservatives. Like the horse's head under the covers.

And what percentage of THOSE want to actually tie the knot?

A cohesive and often underground group; many focused on finance and administration, and with a penchant for smears and blackmail.

A bit like the 2012 election cycle actually.

Obastard Motors is only doing what it has to...

GM should have gone through bankruptcy, ditched the UAW and re-established itself as a union free workplace.

I bought my toyota for exactly that reason....non-union made.

Chevrolet takes on a whole new meaning now. My mother 78 years old with Alzheimer’s always stated “Shove it or leave it”. because the cars would always break down.

i will stick with my volkswagen and subaru.

Since Chevy won’t do it, we need to stick that ‘equal’ sticker or a rainbow on Chevys when nobody’s looking.

Is anyone surprised that this came from Government Motors?

When you take the leftist's money (stolen from everyone else), you dance to the leftist's tune.

As if anyone needed further proof, GM made this:

The Chevy HHR, or as we called it, the Homosexual HotRod.

For decades, I’ve been the most dogged “buy American” guy that could possibly be. I even left a store and drove twenty miles away to another store to purchase a $1.50 package of ‘made-in-America’ thumbtacks one time!

But with corporate America going full-force into pushing faggotry (not to mention pushing amnesty!), I really, really don’t give a damn anymore. To hell with them!! If I go out of my way nowadays, it’s to just not buy ANYTHING!! Just second-hand items, if possible.

“Does anyone know how many homosexuals there actually are in this country?”

Estimates vary and what you consider “homosexual” has several definitions also. If you consider homosexual someone who, from birth, was attracted to their own sex, probably just 1-5 in a hundred. But people making a “lifestyle choice” may be most of what we consider progressives, who, to be considered “progressive” must have a wide variety of experience as the price of entry. Also, some areas have more than others; San Francisco, which was where all the free-love hippies ended up. Then there are people having sex with their own sex because the media and Hollywood make it look normal and acceptable. These are mostly people who are trying to be fashionable and may change their minds as they mature. I think we’re going through a cultural phase and we’ll outgrow it. The problem is there are no significant problems to solve; no pandemics (to speak of) no mass starvation, no world war…if anything of this nature develops you’ll probably never hear about homosexuals again as what people do will no longer be important. (The family tends to reassert itself when culture is under pressure.)

Disgusting. The vomit-worthiness. I will never support this company again. What a disgusting joke. What it means to be a family HAS changed. It changed for the little boy in Alabama adopted by two men who raped him. It’s changed for black youths being raised without fathers across this country. There’s no such thing as family in America anymore. The country has become a Sodomic cesspool of depravity, people wallowing in their feces while children suffer. Nobody care’s about children anymore. Kill ‘em in the womb, give them away to gay pedophiles. Why not?

Boycott.

gotta give them credit for their persistent indoctrination and intimidation. They’ve parlayed our sympathy for the early suffering AIDS patients through “live and let live” respecting of their privacy to dowhateber they want in the privacy of their own homes into they mow have the right to coach our kids and use whichever bathroom they self identify with.

once they co-opted the media it was just a matter of time

it seems Muslims are adopting their tactics as well.

God help us.

But this is what I meant in my comment #17, I feel like I'm running out of companies:

Ford Motor Co. Supports the Homosexual Marriage Movement
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1413512/posts

"If one looks for the company which has done the most to affirm and promote the homosexual lifestyle, he would be hard-pressed to find a company which has done more than Ford Motor Company. While this is hardly known to the general population, it is well known by numerous homosexual organizations. In fact, the Human Rights Campaign (a national homosexual organization whose goal is homosexual marriage) gave Ford a 100% corporate rating. Ford makes not only Ford, but also Lincoln, Mercury, Mazda, Volvo, Jaguar, and Land Rover."

...what a family looks like, has [changed].

What a family looks like has not changed, even though Chevy, and perhaps those from whom it takes instructions are trying to make it seem so.

One suspects that the next time you see a Chevy truck pulling up to a job site, it just might have a FOR SALE sign on it.
