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)

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn explained why he wouldn't be surprised to see our supply chain collapse and empty shelves in America in the near future. Shortages are already wrecking our economy, China (where many of our goods are still made) is facing an energy shortage, and the Biden administration sure seems to be doing everything it can to make things worse.

Glenn noted a serious warning from American CEO Mike Beckham: "There's a major storm brewing in the supply chain," Beckham wrote on Twitter.

Thanks to China's centrally planned system, electricity shortages are causing huge delays in product manufacturing. In fact, some items are facing a 33 percent cut in production. "It could dramatically impact every [American's] life next year. But almost no one knows about it yet," Beckham warned.

Glenn went on to explain exactly what this means for you — and what you can do to prepare.

Every decision made by President Joe Biden has ended in "disaster," Bill O'Reilly told Glenn Beck.

O'Reilly joined the radio program to explain why he thinks there's only one "mechanism" Americans can use stop the Biden administration's mess.

"Give me one thing that [Biden] has done, just one, that's improved this nation. Everything that he has been involved with is a disaster. Everything from the COVID mandates, to the energy policies, to the economic policies, to the inflation, to Afghanistan, to the collapsing southern border, to the social woke business, to the denial of due process. Right across-the-board, there isn't anything this man has done, or stood for, that's improved America," O'Reilly said.

"But there is no mechanism to do anything about it until a year from this November: the midterm elections. That's the only mechanism that we have, under the Constitution. We elected this guy and he's there for four years. You neutralize him next November [2022], with the Republicans taking back the House and Senate, then he's done. [He] can't do anymore damage because you've got him in a hole. And he's not going to be proactive with executive orders. He's just going to stay there in his jammies for two more years. OK? So that's the only mechanism."

O'Reilly also tore into the corporate media for using its power to defend Gen. Mark Milley after news of his China calls broke. Is there any deterrence in American society anymore to keep our leaders and media in check?

"What does this say to the United States of America when you have two of the most powerful information agencies in the world — NBC, Comcast, and AT&T, CNN — actively deceiving you?" O'Reilly said. "They know what they're doing. And yet there is absolutely no way for anyone to hold them accountable other than not watching them, which has, of course, happened. You know they have no audience. But just the corruption level of the information flow to the American people is at an all-time high. We have never had a worse media in the history of this republic."
