Two Lame Reasons Pro-Choice Group Denounced Doritos Super Bowl Ad

While livetweeting during the Super Bowl Sunday, the pro-choice organization NARAL complained about every ad not measuring up to its standards of diversity and feminism.

One ad that didn't pass NARAL's test was a Doritos commercial featuring a man eating Doritos while his pregnant wife receives an ultrasound of her baby. The baby moves whenever the dad gets close with a chip, eventually launching out of the womb to try to get Doritos.

What did NARAL find so disturbing about this?

Two things.

1. It makes dads look "clueless" and "moms" uptight.

2. It implements the "tactic of humanizing fetuses."

Here's the original tweet.

Humanizing fetuses? What do they think the fetus is going to become? A cat? Or a Volkswagon?

Of course it's human!

Watch the commercial below and see what you think.

Glenn and his co-hosts shared their reactions on radio Monday. Listen or read the transcript below. Start at 25:28.

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors.

GLENN: The other one is the Doritos ad. The Doritos ad is also being called controversial today.

PAT: Is it? Why? This is the baby that shoots out --

GLENN: Oh, you don't know? This is going to make you happy. This is going to make you so happy. I can't wait to tell --

PAT: Tell me. Okay. All right.

GLENN: So the deal is a woman is in -- she's having an ultrasound.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: And the dad is sitting there eating Doritos. And she looks and she's like, really? Are you kidding me? Really? And then during the ultrasound, he moves the Dorito by her stomach.

PAT: And the baby tries to grab it.

GLENN: You see the baby trying to grab -- and then the nurse takes the bag, throws it across the room, and then the baby shoots out. Starts to go into labor. Okay?

Two reasons. Two reasons. I'm going to give you the first one is actually the secondary reason. But the first reason they gave is just fantastic.

JEFFY: Right.

GLENN: They make women look bitchy and men look stupid.

JEFFY: Right.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Okay. All right.

PAT: Women are bitchy when they're giving birth. I don't know if anyone has seen a woman when she's giving birth.

GLENN: I know. I know.

JEFFY: And I'm pretty sure every man has been called stupid during a birth.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Before I give you what they said, let me say who said this. They have started a campaign against Doritos. They're very upset. NARAL.

PAT: Oh, man.

GLENN: For -- for, quote, the humanizing of a fetus. Now, I don't know how many people have gotten pregnant and had --

PAT: Oh, my gosh.

GLENN: I don't know how many people got pregnant and had a cat.

PAT: Or a spoon.

GLENN: Or a Volkswagen.

PAT: Are you going to give birth to a Volkswagen?

GLENN: It's a human. So they're upset. And that's a quote. For humanizing the fetus.

PAT: Oh, my gosh. Wow.

GLENN: Is that amazing?

PAT: If Doritos pulls because of that --

JEFFY: They might too.

PAT: There's no saving America.

GLENN: What do you mean they might?

JEFFY: I don't know all those companies they bow down, they kowtow to it all. Oh, you're right. We're sorry. We didn't know what to offend anybody.

GLENN: You know what it is? They got their bang for their buck.

JEFFY: Yeah.

GLENN: And they'll let it run. And then they'll pull it and say, "You know, we don't -- we just wanted people to eat Doritos."

JEFFY: We wanted to create a conversation.

GLENN: Yes. Thank you, Starbucks. We just really wanted to have a conversation with the American people.

PAT: Over a bag of chips.


GLENN: What's the difference between that and I want to talk to you about race over a cup of coffee?

PAT: Nothing. I'm willing -- let's have that discussion about the humanizing of a fetus. I mean, because that's absurd. Maybe the people of America will finally realize how absurd that is. Is it possible?

GLENN: No, they're not.

PAT: It's possible.

GLENN: No, it's not.

PAT: Come on.

GLENN: You're talking about the American people. I used to believe in the American people. Stu has steered me -- Stu has steered me, I think, right on the American people.

On "Glenn TV" this week, Megyn Kelly, host of the "Megyn Kelly Show," told Glenn Beck she believes the Democrats' talk of unity is "all nonsense" and forecasted the "death of journalism" under a Biden administration.

Megyn cited President Joe Biden's unwillingness to make concessions that would help unify Democrats and Republicans as an example of how much he actually cares about unity, and added that, while she's all for lowering the political temperature in America, she also believes there are some personal freedoms that are worth fighting for.

"What's happening substantively is worth fighting for and it's not going to go away just because [Biden] gave a nice speech," Megyn said.

"I will object. I will protect my family and what I think is right over Joe Biden's need for unity, which is false anyway. 'Unify behind my agenda' is not a real call for unity," she added.

Megyn said she believes the Left has reached too far and "awakened a sleeping giant" in reference to the silent majority who should speak up, speak out, and refuse to be silenced any longer.

As the Senate prepares for former President Trump's second impeachment trial, many are asking whether it's constitutional to try a president after leaving office. Alan Dershowitz, lawyer and host of the of "The Dershow," joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to talk about the legal battles Trump still faces.

Dershowitz said he believes the Senate doesn't have the authority to convict Trump, now that he's a private citizen again, and thus can't use impeachment to bar him from running for office again.

"The Constitution says the purpose of impeachment is to remove somebody. He [Trump] is out of office. There's nothing left to do.
It doesn't say you can impeach him to disqualify him for the future. It says, if you remove him you can then add disqualification, but you can't just impeach somebody to disqualify them," Dershowitz said.

"The Senate can't try ordinary citizens. So once you're an ordinary citizen, you get tried only in the courts, not in the Senate. So it's clearly unconstitutional," he added.

Dershowitz, who served on Trump's legal team during the first impeachment trial, also discussed whether he thinks Trump is legally (or even just ethically) responsible for the Capitol riot earlier this month, and whether those engaging in violence could be considered "domestic terrorists."

A new, shocking CBS News poll shows that the majority of Americans believe they're facing a new enemy: other Americans.

More than two-thirds of poll respondents said they believe democracy in the U.S. is "threatened," and 54% said "other people in America" are the "biggest threat to the American way of life," rather than economic factors, viruses, natural disasters, or foreign actors.

Will it be possible to unite our nation with statistics like that? On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and Stu discussed the poll numbers and what they mean for our future.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.
