John Derbyshire is fond of saying that if there is hope for civilization, it is to be found in the comments. The new Gillette ad–excuse me, the new short film–is a great testament to the perspicacity of the Derb’s observation. A sampling:
There are several comments along the same lines. I talked to my brother earlier today and he similarly swears the thumbs down figure was significantly higher yesterday than it is as of this posting. Whatever desperate manipulations have taken place behind the scenes, even now the ratio of dislikes-to-likes is more than 2-to-1 in favor of dislikes:
Not bad, though had I been earlier to the party I’d have written, “I loved this video but my wife’s boyfriend thinks it’s gay.”
Globohomo wants to feed the sons of moms who look like this one to Moloch. Mothers who understand and vocalize as much are worthy of praise.
Haven Monahan is eager to elbow his way back into the limelight!
It really is sick, a window into the Xanaxed minds of the yentas who think Brett Kavanaugh should be impeached. Almost nothing shown in the video actually occurs in the real world, save for truly unfortunate white kids whose mothers send them to majority-black public schools. The video, of course, shows a bunch of white kids bullying another white kid. Parenthetically, Stefan Molyneux has a good half-hour dissection of the ‘film’ here.
The one portrayal approaching an accurate depiction of daily suburban life is of a couple of boys, aged about eight, wrestling in the grass. Eventually, the soy-fed mangina cast as the father of one of them intervenes to say, “That’s not how we treat each other, okay?”
Fuck these misandrists to hell. My son asks if we can wrestle every single day, multiple times per day, without fail. It’s the exact same story when I see my nephews. As anyone who has spent two minutes around boys knows, they crave this sort of roughhousing like an infant craves breast milk. Someone tell the eunuchs at Proctology & Grovel that the savannah needs an intervention even more than we do.
That’s a lot of jargon, but nothing gratuitous. It’s all appropriate.
Triple bank shot? If so, why not get them to shave their wrists instead? What, too far? Their bodies, their choices!
It is not until the 37th most popular comment on a video that has been viewed nearly 15 million times that we finally get an anti-anti-ad post in the form of a tepid bit of whataboutism:
Yeah, I’m sure that will be forthcoming next week.
A commonly expressed sentiment.
Give Harry’s a try. They sponsor Tom Woods–friend of Paul Gottfried, speaker at the Mencken Club–so they’re at least 1,000x less faggy than Gillette is. If you do, enter WOODS at checkout for a discount [edit: Harry’s appears to be as converged as P&G. Maybe Barbasol instead!]
