8 Hilarious Protests One Million Moms Launched This Year

  • 2 of 2

 

6.  Remember When We all Thought Bestiality was OK Because of Geico?

Another series of ads that the Moms want to shield us from includes those featuring Maxwell the Geico pig. In previous installments, Maxwell has been pulled over by police and even went on a date.

The ad to cause a particular stir is one where Maxwell’s date suggests they pass the time waiting for a tow truck in a slightly suggestive way. She is, as the Moms note, apparently “turned on” by the pig:

I don’t know about you, but I didn’t immediately think of bestiality. I was more impressed by the dexterity of the pig’s trotters. Nevertheless, the Moms were not happy :

Geico has succeeded in offending its customers with this inappropriate advertisement. One Million Moms has received numerous complaints because Geico’s new commercial plays with the idea of bestiality. Parents find this type of advertising repulsive and unnecessary. Airing a commercial with an animal in it will surely grab children’s attention, but this is a horrible commercial for families to see. Geico does not have our children’s best interest in mind.

Given how chaste the Geico pig behaves in this ad, I’d think the Moms would be more likely to approve of it as an example of their abstinence-only beliefs. That or protest it because the pig is talking. That’s obviously witchcraft.

7. NBC Airs the Number of the Beast!

As I said earlier, the Moms aren’t thrilled with NBC — especially when NBC is airing a show like “666: Park Avenue.” Said the Moms:

To paraphrase the description of the program given on ABC’s website: The show is about a young couple who find what they think to be an amazing apartment when in fact it is haunted. Those who live in the building seduce others to get what they need and want. But how far will they go to get what they want? The finest living in the city comes at a cost.

[...]

The evil owner of the apartment building in the show portrays characteristics of the devil himself. Previews include terrifying screams, death, spirits, satanic symbols, mark of the devil, and souls bought for a price.

A landlord who is Satan himself. Are we sure this isn’t a documentary?

8. Afraid of the Naked

We all know that the Moms aren’t too keen seeing even an inch of skin, so imagine how they felt about the Discovery Channel’s reality TV program “Naked and Afraid.”

Here’s the trailer for the show. If you are offended by blurry nudity, then you shouldn’t watch:

In July of this year, the Moms began their long running protest against the show in typical anxiety-ridden style. While there might be a number of reasons to be down on this show, comparing it to “soft-porn” wasn’t on my list:

The two survivalists are n*ked, not only to make it more difficult to stay warm when it rains, but also to make them as uncomfortable, vulnerable and miserable as possible while they survive in the jungle for 21 days. The two humans selected, one male and one female, are to work as a team but they have never met before in their lives. This is awkward for them and for viewers. A couple of episodes have aired which show them uncovered, blurring out frontal body parts but never blurring out their backsides. One episode showed the female making clothes for them to cover the front on the second and third day and continuously replacing these items after they wear out. These articles of clothing made from leaves and vines do not cover completely because the network has to continue to blur out body parts that are revealed from time to time.

[...]

Even though the frontal body parts are blurred out, having so much skin showing is considered soft p*rn.

Sometimes, I think these TV types are just trying to upset the M*ms — and long may it continue.

So thank you One Million Moms for helping us stay on the straight and narrow and providing us with entertainment the whole year through.

Here’s to an outrageous 2014 that will provide you with plenty of poorly thought out complaints.

Good grief. The only one of my FB friends who likes OMM used to drop acid in high school and sleep with her bf on a daily basis. What a hypocrite! They have too much time on their hands, and I think most members are stay at home moms who also choose to homeschool. They want to keep their kids innocent forever and in a plastic bubble.

"The gory series will air on weekends when children and teens potentially stay up later. As another program to warp the minds of our youth, it will likely give children nightmares."

Better not let them watch the news or take any history classes, in that case.

"Get a life" and do something truly productive, like protesting animal abuse, child abuse, etc.

Wow.

Ridiculing intolerance with intolerance? Now THAT is intolerance doubled. Come on, we don't have to agree but we should not be dismissive.This article isn't any better than what 1MM does. We don't support tolerance if we can't be tolerant of those we don't agree with.

I don't agree with the basis for their outrage. That is my right as is their right to be outraged. I do agree that 'Naked and Afraid' has got to be extremely low on my 'entertainment' list but just because I think it is stupid, not because they are naked or immoral. It is funny to me that 1MM can't even bring themselves to spell out 'naked'. Oh, well.

Kinky Boots, the movie was a wonderful commentary on learning tolerance for others and showing the humanity under the facade. That they don't understand the point is their loss. Steve Williams also seems to have missed the point.

I LOVE the bell ringing ad. It cracks me up every time. Too bad 1MM didn't get it, but they don't deserve what they got in this article.

So OMM thinks NAKED is a bad word? Were we not born that way? Are not all animals born that way? Was it not because God saw Adam & Eve wearing clothes that he knew they had sinned? Shouldn't OMM be in favor of nudity, for it is as God intended us to be? I mean the word NAKED appears in Genesis 2 once and in Genesis 3 three times in reference to Adam & Eve.
