    Regarding commercials, I have a lot of venting to do, so I'm glad the topic has been brought up. The Brinks and Bud Light examples have already been mentioned, but there's another one that really irritates me.

    It's one of those Progressive Auto Insurance commercials, and a white couple are shopping for insurance. They speak to the main lady (whom I find very annoying btw), and she recommends some options and comments to the husband that he will no longer have to carry the purse. The man is wimp personified. He's submissive, weak, chubby, and we're left with no doubt who wears the pants in that relationship. He sheepishly and rather scaredly points out that it's actually a gift from his wife (after the wife mentions it's not a purse, but rather a European carry-bag.)

    This particular man is basically how almost all white men are portrayed in commercials nowadays, especially those which involve couples. There's no mistaking this strong trend of making men look foolish, clueless, inept, and in need of being rescued and shown how things are done by their wives, girlfriends, or someone other than a white man.

    Some other observations:

    1. Almost all commercials are now politically and demographically correct. It's nearly impossible to find ads without a black man, a latino man/woman, and other races. I find myself with a great deal of surprise when I see that rare commercial with an all-white caste.

    2. Often times, said minorities appear to be holding very good jobs and/or living normal, suburban lives like whites. We see them portrayed as doctors, lawyers, pilots, financial advisors, IT people, etc, etc.

    3. More often than not, the black man in ads/commercials is strong, masculine, and athletic, which is the complete opposite of how white men are portrayed.

    4. If you came into this country from the outside and were judging the racial make-up based on what you see on TV (commercials, news people, sports people, etc), you'll think the country is equally white/black, with a healthy mix of Latinos, and Asians a distant 4th.

    5. I'm going a little off-topic here, but if you watch ESPN's studio analysts, it's starting very much to resemble the NFL and the NBA.

    Very good observations, but I just wanted to mention that I dislike all of the Progressive commercials. The woman that "stars" in them is creepy and annoying. And yes, unusually wimpy White men, even for commercials, are often shown in them, including one obvious "gay" couple. Another one had the "star" making a joke about a "glass ceiling" to another woman, an overt feminist reference. And the Progressive commercialsare on over and over and over and overagain.

    There are just so many nauseating commercials shown during football games this season. Commercials warning (White men) not to drink and drive, interspersed with beer commercials featuring womenmerrily engaging in violence againstWhite men. Really sickening stuff, from the corporate entities financing the equally sickening NFL. No wonder the tens of millions of DWFs who mindlessly digest this stuff along with the games themselves are so full of self-loathing and feelings of inferiority and are incapable of thinking beyond the very narrow parameters drummed into them non-stop.

    Hillenmeyer has done a fine job being the on the field coach. I think last night was one of his best games since replacing for Urlacher.
    He was platooning the last couple of years after having very solid seasons in '05 and '06.

    Steltz needs a real chance to start. They called him the 'war Daddy' at LSU. Reminds me of a bigger Chuck Cecil. Steltz is like a missile and if given the chance to play more consistently will not only make lots of tackles but will knock someone flat out.
    I think he could be a Aryan modern day version of Tatum, but with better hands to make INTs.

    Vikings White D players did well. Allen was somewhat neutralized, but Greenway and Leber were quite active. Robison? Should truly be starting or at least rotating in more. He's still quite young and his best days are ahead of him.
    Farve almost did it again. Although Bowman needed to make that INT even though it skipped off Hunter and then Harvin and he it seemed he was preparing for a tackle. But when it hits you square in the hands.....

    Overall, it was one of the better games imho this year. Surprised also that Gould's FG didn't hook back in. He was about to be the (unfair) goat.
    As for Peterson, he is a good back and has the speed. We can't deny that. However, he is a mistake prone type that will NOT produce in crunch time. One of those guys that is more hyped then what he really does on the field. That OL for the Viks has to be one of the best in the league. Do I think Peterson sucks? No, has indeed shown flashes. But not the elite game changer the media has ordained for him.

    Don't want to be cliche for CF, but Peterson is more athlete then elite RB. His 'athleticism' is not undeserved. Does this translate into on the field production and making key yards/catches when the game is on the line? Not necessarily as Peterson has illustrated.
    He reminds me of a smaller, more mistake prone Terrel Davis.

    I'm kind of mixed on the Vikings. From a player perspective, they should be #2 favorite for me in the NFC heading into the playoffs after Green Bay. Some solid White players...although the wheels are starting to become unglued. Not much else to root for in the NFC after GB, so I guess I will get behind the Viks for the playoffs. Although I'd love to see Brees win a SB. He was white listed after Culpepper and no one wanted him after surgery. Saints took a chance on him because they practically had no one else to choose from who was worth a damn.

    Will Hatie Smith start Steltz next year?
    He knocked out Tillman who needed O2 and a stretcher.

    Unfortunately, Peterson is more concerned with the highlight reel run than protecting the ball. Six lost fumbles this year. He is also unreliable in short yardage.
    The Vikings need Robison as an every down player. They have to make the offense pay for doubling and scheming away from Allen.
    The Vikings' two giant tackles are so freaking immobile in pass blocking. And, they are too tall to get the low leverage needed to run block. While 6'8" 350 lbs may look good on paper, it is going to get Favre killed.
    It was nice to see Kleinsasser make a couple nice grabs.

    Lastly, Favre is great. Brad Childress is a nobody. Childress just got a contract extension because of Favre. Now, he needs to put his ego aside and let Favre run the offense.

    Foobar and Don, nice posts!

    In the past decade of "edgy"Â￾ (shock-value type) TV commercials, there have literally only been around 5-10 total ads that have been non-anti-white (if that makes sense). That is, about 5-10 in which a white male is not been the subject of the violence, the humiliation, the scorn, the inferiority, etc.

    On average, roughly 1 commercial per year will make me laugh (only once). There has never, ever been a single commercial that I've "looked forward"Â￾ to seeing. I basically ignore every single one, with the exception of some particularly abhorrent instances of Caste / CM / PC, etc. Nearly every commercial is a simple tool for furthering the eventual Check Mate of the PTB"¦which is the unambiguous motivation (after making money, naturally) for their production, and their "blessing"Â￾ to be aired on the TV channels that we pay to watch.

    As I've stated previously, I think that the modern world would feel incredibly strange and unfamiliar should these blatant, reoccurring, all-encompassing, world-wide instances of totalitarian, anti-white bigotry and imitation-equality ever fade away.

    I can think of hundreds of examples of unfunny, violent, crude, racially and sexually offensive (to whites only, of course) TV commercials. For instance, about 2 years ago there was commercial for Verizon phone service (basically all phone-service-related commercials are f*cking unbearable) which featured a pencil-necked, middle-aged, wimpy white "man"Â￾ who was on the floor in a traditional christian "prayer"Â￾ pose"¦seated next to his phone / computer. He was "praying to god"Â￾ for better service (or some other materialistic reason)"¦.and suddenly, a large black man on a cherry picker truck smashes through his wall. He hooks up the "better"Â￾ phone/internet service and tells the nerd "I am the answer to all your prayers."Â￾ The nerd then begins groveling at the feet of his black god in a borderline psychopathic manner"¦.chanting "Please give me a big-screen TV, please give me a new car, please give me a speedboat."Â￾ [Cue the phone number and website for ordering Verizon, blah, blah, blah].

    Anyway, I called Verizon and cancelled my phone service later that week. A manager asked why, and I gave them proper hell, explaining my feelings. I've done this so many times with so many products"¦.it feels pretty gratifying, actually. Cutting off their corporate-piggie money is the only sort of "threat"Â￾ that these Money-First, Race-Last corperate cod-peices ever understand.Edited by: Thrashen

    Great posts, guys!

    I remember an auto insurance commercial, (not sure which company) was showing how other companies auto insurance looks good but it is not. The supposed "good" coverage was a muscular black man who said something to the effect: "You may think you get me for your coverage, but instead you get this guy" the black guy moves out of the way, and there is the classic whimpy, weak white nerd standing there. Just some more classic BS.

    I didn't mind the budlight commercial when the poodle drives the car. About the only budlight commercial I can tolerate these days.

    I get so tired of the caste-lackeys saying how imperative it that "gAy-P" gets his precious carries. One of the MNF crew was drooling over "gAy-P's" physique. As if a NFL player should be in anything but outstanding shape...especially with a $40.5 million dollar contract![​IMG]

    Foobar, Don & Thrashen, outstanding points and examples of blatant "positioning" of the White man as tubby, weak, submissive bumbler who is "2nd in command" to the harpy wife....or bowing down to the strong, saavy black(s).[​IMG]

    The loss will be added to the perception that Brett Farve can't play in the cold. Nevermind the fact that their star running back cannot hang onto the ball. But hey, it's not AP's fault that overachiever Hillenmeyer somehow caught him from behind and was "lucky" enough to poke the ball free. Naahhh, that would never happen in a million years.

    That one was for 21stCentury Insurance. I looked for it on YouTube so I could post it here because it was so blatant and outrageous butit didn't seem to be shown that often.

    Taking the time to contact the corporations through their websites or via phone is a great idea. Unlike politicians, they are a bit more sensitive to feedback because they know that anyone who takes the effort to make their displeasure known represents many other people who feel the same way, which might impact their bottom line and market share, even if only a bit.Edited by: Don Wassall

    One thing about last night's Monday night game was the fact that they were playing a night game in late December in Chicago. I have noticed this for several years. Back in the 1970's, Pete Rozelle would make sure the late-year Monday night games were either in a warm-weather area (California or Florida) or in a domed stadium. The NFL leadership realizes that the DWF's don't mind sitting outdoors in ice-cold winter weather weather at night.

    Thirty-plus years ago, even playoff gamers were scheduled according to the weather. The games played in the East amd Midwest were the "early" games while the playoff game in a warm weather site would be the second game of the doubleheader. For example, in 1979 the conference championships games were Houston at Pittsburgh and Los Angeles Rams at Tampa Bay. The Pittsburgh game was on first when the weather would be warmer. In 2007, you had the NFC Championship game in Green Bay being played at night in January.

    I agree about the ridiculously anti-white commercials which is why I only watch TV on my DVR so I can just FF through all that BS, unfortunately just about every program or movie on the tube is filled with jewish-marxist propaganda.[​IMG]

    All the Sunday pro games are now showing a Southwest Airlines commercial which shows Southwest Airlines employees doing volunteer work in their communities. Every white person in the commercial is a service worker: baggage handler, ticket counter, flight attendant; and the one Negro in the commercial is, guess what? A pilot. I'm betting he's the only Negro pilot that Southwest has, if he's not an actor.

    If I were the coach of the Vikings, I would sit that Peterson guy down and let him watch for the rest of the year. He's got one of the worst cases of fumbleitis I've ever seen. Not to mention, the focus of a ghnat. Hillenmeyer must have been laughing hysterically. What good is it to have a guy like Peterson on your side?

    Peterson is fumble prone and very mortal looking running the ball this year, but I'd sayhis fumble last night was caused mainly by an all-around tremendous individual effort by Hillenmeyer. It looked great when it happened but the slowed-down replay, with Hillenmeyer not only running down and tackling Peterson but then punching the ball out, all in a split second, was one of the top plays you'll see.

    Hahahaha! Come to think of it, I've never seen a black pilot on Southwest, and that's the airline that I do the vast majority of my travel with[​IMG]

    EootballDad,

    Sir, I've always thought that if they'd force Affirmative Action black pilots that'd be the end of Affirmative Action.

    Tom Iron maybe not the private sector, but the military is dumbing down qualifications so minorities to get into the presitegeous military acadamies such as West Point and the Naval Acadamy. The pilots in our armed forces come from these great schools.

    I heard the BO admiinstration(surprise!) is putting pressure to have minorities "fairly" represented in the rock star occupations(pilots)of the armed forces. Yeah, give these sought after positions to kindred of affelets, even though they don't deserve them. We have problems.

    As bad as the Anheuser-Busch, Progressive, and Brinks commercials are, the one that may be most nauseating is the All State commercials shown during college football games. Two White male DWF's (classic DWF's if I may say so...exactly how I imagine them), tailgating in a parking lot, getting drunk, already stupid, and rooting for "State".

    The one where they were dressed in cheerleader "drag", looking like "Goldilocks" was the worst. Although I couldn't find the video for that one, here's another one, almost as unflattering.

    The propaganda against white men has gotten so ridiculous and obvious that I've had MANY non-racialist friends comment about the good and the smart guy in commercials is always black/colored while the bad guy or the dumb guy is always a white male. The only time a white person is shown in a positive light is if the focal point of the commercial is a white woman but the white man will still have to be the bad/dumb guy to balance it out.[​IMG]

    The @$%#&*# jewish elite monopolizing of all forms of media and entertainment needs to end!!![​IMG]

    Don't forget all the propaganda against white boys as well. It slowly started to increase several years ago in adds aimed at children. I noticed they play to the element that boys are dumb, girls rule, while often when they are trying to reach a certain age demographic of girls. Everyone went through the stage where members of the opposite sex were icky, had cooties etc. The problem is only that little boys are allowed to be lampooned and the a lot of it is downright vicious. Also, you will only see little white boys being portrayed as being outsmarted, or downright abused by their sisters. I'm a big boy, I can take their stupid white male bashing, I just won't buy their crappy products, but they cross the line when it comes to targeting vulnerable kids with no means to defend themselves.

    My ten year old reminded me that although Adrian Petersuck fumbled the ball which cost the Vikings the game, "he did it athletically!"

    Had to post this here because Backrow hasn't made a thread yet for Week 17. Some of the things to look for in this final game of the regular season are for Jason Witten to hit 1,000 yards receiving. He only needs 46 more yards. Also Brent Celek has a small chance to hit 1,000 yards receiving but he would need 125 yards receiving today. It is possible.

    Welker just left the game with a knee injury. It may be serious. That's why I didn't criticize the Colts(andother teams who have nothingto play for) for restingtheir key players.
