Days before the Super Bowl kicks off, a family advocate is throwing a flag over double standards: Fox viewers can’t handle abortion survivors but drag queens have been invited to your living rooms.
One Million Moms is publicizing the effort by pro-life group Faces of Choice to air its ad during the Super Bowl only to be turned down. Yet an ad featuring two drag queens is apparently set to go.
Faces of Choice has been in talks with Fox since July to air its ad (see below) featuring abortion survivors, but Monica Cole of One Million Moms says it’s obvious the ad will not air Sunday.
“Not only was it not approved yet,” Cole says, “they have been ignored since August.”
Lyric Gillett, the founder of Faces of Choice, told The Washington Times it’s ironic and appalling that survivors of abortion are being ignored.
“Can you look me in the eye,” the survivors ask in the ad, “and tell me I shouldn’t exist?”
A spokesman for Fox told the Times the ad space sold out too quickly to accommodate the pro-life ad, but Gillett said Fox executives kept stringing her along through the fall instead of just turning down the ad.
Cole says the double standard is coming directly from Fox after it green-lit the ad featuring two drag queens hired to promote Sabra brand hummus.
The Washington Times noticed the irony, too, and reports the ad features drag queens “Kim Chi” and “Miz Cracker” who were featured in a TV show about drag queens.
The ad was called “revolutionary” by a homosexual marketing strategist, Bob Witeck, who told the Times that including drag queens in a Super Bowl ad means drag queens are taking their language “into every home in the nation and millions around the world.”
“They approved of this particular commercial to air when children are watching the Super Bowl,” Cole says of Fox, “and they know that they're watching.”
