Free Doughnuts = Abortions

January 20th, 2009

I can’t imagine more than one or two people have seen this site since I got all excited about trying to do this again, and I’m probably posting way too much for a day and a half.  But you need to read this:

Krispy Kreme vs. the American Life League.

Public relations gaffe, indeed.

Thanks, PZ.  God love you. Science, et al love you.

    “a free doughnut of choice” >>> “free doughnut of a customer’s choice”

    We, collectively–as much as I hate to include myself in this–have gone completely bat-shit crazy.

    “We understand that Krispy Kreme is not nor has it ever been aligned with either side of the hotly debated “abortion issue,” but that does not excuse it from inadvertently using a phrase that suggested to us that it was, in fact, very much in support of abortion rights in America.”

    Are you out of your mind? “Does not excuse it” (?!) Excuse me?! “from inadvertently” (!!!) “suggested to us” Really? Really?!

    “The use of the phrase “freedom of choice” is unmistakably a pro-abortion phrase to pro-life Americans.”


    “It is a phrase used over and over again by those who FAVOR abortion.”

    FAVOR abortion?

    Once more–are you out of your mind?!


    We need to invent new words to describe insanity like this!


    When is enough enough?!

    Thanks for keeping this colorful. May end up being a good traffic generator. Now I just have to monetize it so I can spend my days drinking scotch and writing crappy music. Or some such thing.

    I’m just really starting to think that rational people need to start completely annihilating the ideas and reputations of unreasonable people. You don’t get to play with the big kids unless you learn the rules. You don’t stand on second base and yell “touchdown!” We’re going to kick you off the field! Go home!

    It’s bad enough that they read the Krispy Kreme promo and thought that, but then to even think about saying it out loud! But no, they sat down and composed and disseminated, and then defended a fucking PRESS RELEASE!

    Not even a generation ago could you even come close to getting away with something like that. We’ve gone way too far in being “accepting” and “tolerant” and “open-minded” about completely ridiculous, untenable ideas. No. You’re disqualified. Go home!
