George Moonbat Denounces Advertising
Despite admitting that it pays his wages, professional moonbat George Monbiot declares himself morally opposed to advertising:
I believe that advertising is a pox on the planet. It is one of the forces driving us towards destruction, as it creates needs that did not exist before and promotes consumption way beyond sustainable levels. I believe that it is also socially damaging, turning ours into a more grasping, more atomised society, focused on material display rather than solidarity and community action.
In addition to tempting us away from righteous socialist poverty, advertisements
generate behavioural norms, telling us, in effect, that the goods and services which are destroying the biosphere are acceptable, even beneficial. I believe that their presence in the newspapers makes hypocrites of all those of us who write for them. Our editorials urge people to reduce their impacts. Our advertisements urge people to increase them.
Given the environmental extremism Moonbat so stridently preaches, the fact that he doesn't live in a tree makes him a hypocrite.
If Brian Deese can be put in charge of the auto industry, maybe Moonbat should be made supreme ruler of all publishing. Then he could issue a decree that instead of advertising revenue, publications would be sustained by sheer sanctimony. His pay would go down to zero, but at least then he couldn't be accused of "grasping."
Hat tip: David Thompson.

He's being photographed greedily grabbing electrical power!!! Why does he need that high-tech parka, if we've been overwhelmed by global warming? Also, I'll bet those little bitty moonbat eyeglasses cost upwards of $1000.

Me: Moonbat, would you agree that also human beings (white ones only) are a pox on the planet?
Moonbat: Why yes, we ALL know THAT!
Me: Are you a hypoctite?
Moonbat: OF COURSE not!
Me: Then please be the first to subscribe to your beliefs....(hands Moonbat a lodaed revolver)....noe to the right temple will do.
Moonbat: What is this? A weapon of white male oppression and imperialism?
Me: (grabs gun and does the job) BOOM.
Moonbat: Uncle Joe, Uncle Vlad, Chairman Mao, Pol Pot, here I come.....I hope you kept Hell warm for me.

Liberals hatred of advertisement is understandable once you grasp how easily manipulated their minds are, just take a look at Obama and his followers. Just imagine, every time your presented with empty rhetoric and blatant lies you uncontrollably fall in line.

ERIC, you beat me to it.
Propiganda is a form of advertisment and the communists used it well durring the cold war. The Liberals are also using ads to promote "global warming", Mother Earth eccology, vegitarianism, promiscuous sex, Obamaism, "afirmative action TOKENISM and socialism. A lot of Liberals don't even know what they're promoting because they are simply following whatever the "advertisers" tell them is "good".

Oh, come on! You don't really expect an Affirmative Action student, who is so ashamed of his grades that he had his college transcripts permanently sealed (or sealed until they may be rewritten) to know ANYTHING about history, can you?
How racist can you be to expect Obama to have any knowledge of history! HE IS THE FIRST half-BLACK PRESIDENT! NOTHING ELSE MATTERS!
Racist crackers. I bet the JEWS paid Van to make this post.

KHarn- "...The Liberals are also using ads to promote "global warming", Mother Earth eccology, vegitarianism, promiscuous sex, Obamaism, "afirmative action TOKENISM and socialism.

Not true, comrade. Only the capitalist robbers of happiness require something as gauche as advertising. Good progressives know that all socialist doctrines encountered in the media are actually educational programs. What a reactionary hate criminal calls an "advertisement", the enlightened liberal knows is a community service announcement, broadcast or printed for the common good of the World Collective. Liberalism needs no crass "selling"- for socialism is not an ideology, but a force of nature, like the tide, or photosynthesis. Re-education in one of our Funenlightened camps will help you to understand such an inherent truth.

My appoligies, comrade. I am but a lowly, insignificant cog in the glorious revolutionary machine and can't be expected to make wise observations like our great leader.

Yes, but if these horrible advertisers stop supporting his favorite liberal rags, The New York Times will be gone sooner than there eventual death.
Chairman Zero will loose more of his mouth pieces. (
Not that there are shortages of them)

Such an oracle! I had no idea those short video clips during television shows were trying to get me to buy stuff. I thought they were just public service announcements, informing me of the availability of products. These liberals are so smart.

It reminds me of the blatant hypocrisy of Rolling Stone magazine:
That pathetic rag routinely has commentators ranting about "Corporate greed" and the supposed evils of capitalism, yet issues of that magazine has been known to contain as many as 13 pages of full- page advertisements before even reaching the Table of Contents! It's like the magazine is saying, "The real problem with America is capitalism. All these horrible, greedy corporations care about is making money! Oh, and buy the way, you should all buy Skechers shoes, drive Toyota cars, and buy all the movies and music we endorse!"

The old tv ads were fun epecialy if it had a memorble jingle or chatures like JOSEPHINE THE PLUMBER,CHARLE TUNA,THE VLASSIC STORK and MRS BUTTERWORTH and MR CLEAN and they even used FRED and BARNEY to advertise cigarettes
