In a country where more Americans identify themselves as conservative than liberal, Americans are being peddled goods by outspoken liberals. Businesses are being influenced by Madison Avenue to hire celebrity spokespersons with outspoken liberal political beliefs to sell their products. Why are they not hiring conservative celebrity spokepersons who actually rally for free enterprise, which benefits the buyer?
This is just another avenue for liberal bias and a progressive attempt to influence the buyer politically, even with blatant hypocrisy. It’s an underground movement whose motives the liberal advertising companies are hoping will not be noticed.
There is nothing wrong with liberals being hired to do commercials, but there is something wrong with conservatives not being hired because they are conservatives.
Why is this important? It is important because of the influence apathy gives Madison Avenue. It is important because of the sheer magnitude of power indifference gives the media over our minds. Americans are letting their thought processes and instincts be manipulated by their lack of action. It’s time to vet the nanny who is raising our children and influencing our own minds: the culture (i.e., the press, media, sitcoms, dramas, reality shows, music, and advertising).
I’ve heard it said that conservatives will buy products peddled by liberals (because they have no other choice) but liberals won’t buy products peddled by conservatives. If this is true, then it is time for conservatives and independents to wake up and smell the ads. If we want change, then it’s all in the pocketbook.
We are all Americans. I don’t mind seeing liberals in ads, as long as there is no hypocrisy in their actions. However, the playing field should be leveled. Conservative Americans should not be shunned and conservatives should be duly represented.
The time has come for advertising companies and their clients to spread the politics around and for the American buyer to demand it.
