Not Today, AFA!

1MM does it for the children

So, at the beginning of the weekend, The Hallmark Channel bowed to pressure from noted SPLC-designated hate group One Million Moms.

Hallmark killed the business relationship with wedding planning site, Zola, because their advertisement featured a same-sex wedding with a very chaste smooch between two women.

One can see why One Million Moms objected to seeing two of those millions of moms’ children finding happiness, but that’s not really what the group is about. You see, it is a project of the American Family Association (also designated a hate group by the SPLC), which is all about hating on the ‘mos. It’s the employer of our old pal Rev. Fishsticks.

This is the 10th anniversary of the Hallmark Channel’s “Countdown to Christmas” marathons, which aim to be as bland as possible.

Anyway, the pushback against Hallmark was amazing, and bland ol’ Hallmark was trending on Twitter! Maybe at last America was taking their bland brand and appreciating it for the mayo it is?

Anyway, this finally happened:

Look, it might not seem like much of a win, but it shows us that when we fight back, we can turn the tide, and this time we got Satan running (in the form of AFA). Boycotts and threats of boycotts work on American brands. Keep this in mind.

    Hey, AFA! As I previously wrote here, on 02 November:
    “As I am wont to remind the Buy-Bull thumpers – according to their B.S. fairy-tale book, Jesus wandered around Galilee for three years, accompanied by 12 men, NO wives, girlfriends, concubines, etc. Then, at the Last Supper, he told them, “Love ye, one another, even as I have loved you.” Now, you can’t tell me none of them ever got horny during those 3 years, so the conclusion is obvious: Jesus and his disciples were all GAY.”
    AFA – your selective beliefs SUCK!!!

  2. You gotta wonder, by now, who in these corporate offices gets worried when they get complaints about this kind of stuff from these groups.

    Because it always, ALWAYS comes around to bite them on the ass on the bottom line each and every time, and it’s happening faster and faster. This blew up in what, three days?

    There are way more of US than there are of THEM. Hell, we even got Dicks to stop selling guns (so go buy something from Dick’s this holiday season..because we have power, but only if we exercise it)

    On the contrary, it’s a fine win. Hallmark got reminded that the crowd they cater to includes people who are out, people with friends and family that are out and people who don’t appreciate attempts to shove them back in the closet.
    I think I’ll even turn on one of their shitty Christmas movies, just to add my view to their ratings. Rewards for good behavior can work, even if that behavior should have been expected in the first place.

    It’s not just the movies — this is the height of cards-and-wrapping-paper season. A boycott in summer might not have been so effective. Still, I’ll take any win we can get.

    • Hallmark has entire lines of gay wedding cards. That’s what made this so stupid; one part of the company is shooting the moneymaker part. (because no way in hell is the Hallmark Channel a big profit center for them…)

        The Bride watches that channel once in a while. I can’t stand the suspense — Will the handsome boy and attractive girl get together the way God intended?
