Today we celebrate the top ten commercials from the 2010 Super Bowl.

Tim Tebow SuperBowl Ad: A Commercial Based On A Lie

Tim Tebow SuperBowl Ad: A Commercial Based On A Lie

When I bite into a York Peppermint Pattie, I get the sensation of leaving behind this world where God fearing Christians can smile and wear gold crosses, drive their SUV’s and still hold their heads high, bolstered by their faith and feel holier than thou while we rape, pillage and kill brown people in less developed parts of the world so that we can maintain our quote unquote way if life of living in a world where belief in an all knowing creator of the universe who wrote a book of laws for us to live by is on equal footing with belief in Tinkerbell.

Get the sensation!

Catching a glimpse of Tim Tebow with his black face paint instructing me to read bible passages is nothing like biting into a York Peppermint Pattie.

By now we all know that an anti choice commercial featuring Tim Tebow and his mother Pam has been approved by CBS and will likely air to during a time when the number of Americans collected around TV sets is greater than the number of Americans who voted in the last presidential election.

And for a variety of reasons, Pro-Choice groups are up in arms, circulating the usual petitions in hopes that they can pressure CBS to withdraw the ad. One reason is that the advocacy ad, produced and paid for by the hate group focus on the family, is based on a lie. Namely, reports state that the commercial will focus Pam Tebow’s 1987 pregnancy, during which time she fell ill in the Philippines. According to reports, doctors recommended that she abort the pregnancy, but she chose to go through with the birth of her son Tim.

However, according to Women’s rights campaigner and attorney Gloria Allred, abortion under any circumstance has been illegal in the Philippines since 1930 and is punishable by a six-year prison term, making the claim that her doctors advised her to abort the baby appear to be a fabrication.

What a second. Commercials lie?

You mean that if I drink Coors light, buy a Ford F-150, and pop a little blue pill I WON’T be more of a man, with my erection lasting just under the medically dangerous threshold of four hours receiving constant attention from a bevy of barley legal swimsuit models with perpetually gyrating hips and gravity defying breast making me the envy of all of the mealy mouthed girly men on my block?

Of course commercial lie! That is a given.

Now don’t get me wrong- I think if we could snap our fingers and wake up in a world where women’s groups take over the leadership positions of all of the world’s superpowers, that the world would be an infinitely better place for it.

How does that song go? – “Women of the world take over, because if you don’t, the world will come to an end, and it won’t take long.”

Of course the commercial is a lie. It is a commercial.

Efforts and banning the ad bring to mind the words of Free Speech scholar Nat Hentoff who noted the left wings propensity to advocate for “Free Speech for me and not for thee.”

Right thinking individuals everywhere offended by Tim Tebow and his ilk would be better served refocusing our efforts on empowering or recruiting other famous athletes to offer a counterbalancing message.

Imagine the impact of a Superbowl athlete wearing black eye paint in the style of Tim Tebow during the game with the word “Impeach” under his left eye and the word “Jesus” under his right eye.
