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.

(laughter)

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.

(laughter)

Shortly after appearing on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" last Thursday, Los Angeles-based emergency medicine specialist Dr. Simone Gold got a call saying she was fired for speaking out about the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine in a now-banned viral video.

Dr. Gold returned to the radio program Monday to detail exactly what happened, the reason the hospitals gave for her firing, and how they threatened to fire her colleagues as well if she "didn't go quietly."

"Most emergency physicians work at more than one [hospital], as I do, and I've actually been fired from both," she told Glenn. "They told me that I appeared in an embarrassing video, and therefore, I would no longer be welcome to work there ... then they said, if I didn't go quietly and I made a fuss, they would have all the doctors in the group, you know, they'd have to go and they'll get a whole new doctor group."

Dr. Gold said she does not regret speaking out about hydroxychloroquine during the controversial "White Coat Summit" news conference held in Washington, D.C., last week. A video of the news conference quickly went viral on social media before being removed by Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and others for allegedly making false claims related to COVID-19.

"Bring it on," she said. "I want to continue to live in America. I want my children to continue to live in America. I don't want them to grow up in a place like China. When you get to a point where, not only can I not speak as a scientist, as a doctor, for what I know to be absolutely true, but you then want to cancel me and my colleagues, this is not okay. I would much rather fight than not fight ... and I want everybody to know that there are literally millions and millions of Americans who are on our side. Millions. I believe it's the majority."

Glenn then asked Dr. Gold to weigh in on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's new guidelines encouraging schools to reopen in the fall and the left's relentless drive to keep them closed.

"There's no actual scientific debate whatsoever if schools should open. None. There's no scientific debate. There's no serious person who thinks schools shouldn't open. Now, [through] some governors and policy makers, there's pressure being brought to bear on school districts, but there's no actual scientific debate. So it's going to come down to parents pressuring their local school districts to act in a responsible fashion."

Fox News host Greg Gutfeld joined Glenn on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to talk about his new book, "The Plus: Self-Help for People Who Hate Self-Help."

Greg admits he is probably the last person who should write a self-help book. Nevertheless, he offers his offbeat advice on how to save America during what has become one of the most tumultuous times in history, as well as drinking while tweeting (spoiler: don't do it).

He also shares his "evolution" on President Donald Trump, his prediction for the election, and what it means to be an agnostic-atheist.

In this clip, Greg shares what he calls his "first great epiphany" on how dangerous cancel culture has become.

"I believe that cancel culture is the first successful work-around of the First Amendment," he said. "Because freedom of speech doesn't protect me from my career being ruined, my livelihood being destroyed, or me getting so depressed I commit suicide. Cancel culture is the first successful work-around of freedom of speech. It can oppress your speech with the scepter of destruction. We don't have freedom of speech anymore."

Dr. Simone Gold joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to set the record straight about hydroxychloroquine -- what it is, how it works, and the real reason for all the current controversy surrounding a centuries-old medication.

Dr. Gold is a board certified emergency physician. She graduated from Chicago Medical School before attending Stanford University Law School. She completed her residency in emergency medicine at Stony Brook University Hospital in New York, and worked in Washington D.C. for the Surgeon General, as well for the chairman of the Committee on Labor and Human Resources. She works as an emergency physician on the front lines, whether or not there is a pandemic, and her clinical work serves all Americans from urban inner city to suburban and the Native American population. Her legal practice focuses on policy issues relating to law and medicine.

She is also the founder of America's frontline doctors, a group of doctors who have been under attack this week for speaking out about hydroxychloroquine during a news conference held outside the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington D.C.

On the program, Dr. Gold emphasized that the controversy over hydroxychloroquine is a "complete myth."

"Hydroxychloroquine is an analogue or a derivative of quinine, which is found in tree bark. It's the most noncontroversial of medications that there is," she explained.

"It's been around for centuries and it's been FDA-approved in the modern version, called hydroxychloroquine, for 65 years. In all of that time, [doctors] used it for breast-feeding women, pregnant women, elderly, children, and immune compromised. The typical use is for years or even decades because we give it mostly to RA, rheumatoid arthritis patients and lupus patients who need to be on it, essentially, all of their life. So, we have extensive experience with it ... it's one of the most commonly used medications throughout the world."

Dr. Gold told Glenn she was surprised when the media suddenly "vomited all over hydroxychloroquine", but initially chalked it up to the left's predictable hatred for anything President Donald Trump endorses. However, when the media gave the drug Remdesivir glowing reviews, despite disappointing clinical trial results, she decided to do some research.

"[Remdesivir] certainly wasn't a fabulous drug, but the media coverage was all about how fabulous it was. At that moment, I thought that was really weird. Because it's one thing to hate hydroxychloroquine because the president [endorsed] it. But it's another thing to give a free pass to another medicine that doesn't seem that great. I thought that was really weird, so I started looking into it. And let me tell you, what I discovered was absolutely shocking," she said.

According to the mainstream media's COVID-19 narrative, the president is "ignoring" the crisis.

On tonight's "Glenn TV" special, Glenn Beck exposes the media's last four months of political theater that has helped shape America's confusion and fear over coronavirus. And now, with a new school year looming on the horizon, the ongoing hysteria has enormous ramifications for our children, but the media is working overtime to paint the Trump administration as anti-science Neanderthals who want to send children and teachers off to die by reopening schools.

Glenn fights back with the facts and interviews the medical doctor Big Tech fears the most. Dr. Simone Gold, founder of America's Frontline Doctors, stands up to the media's smear campaign and explains why she could no longer stay silent in her fight against coronavirus fear.
