A living room full of former hippie gals, all in their 60s, put together a short and vulgar expression of their disdain for, in their words, CBS having no respect for “women’s choice”:
Just so that you’re clear on what they’re saying, here’s the way in which the person who posted the video describes what’s going on:
Part of Women’s Media Center grassroots effort, this funny, fierce song parody from South Florida Raging Grannies tears CBS a new one, in no uncertain terms, over its decision to run an anti-choice commercial from the Christian right-wing extremist group, Focus On The Family, during 2010 Super Bowl.
As for me, last I heard, CBS had no government input over women and reproductive rights. What really gets the Raging Grannies’ goat is the fact that CBS agreed to show a video in which Tim Tebow and his mom talk about her choice to go ahead with a high risk pregnancy. In other words, the Raging Grannies’ are not upset about CBS advocating the denial of women’s “choices.” They’re upset about CBS giving voice to a woman whose choice did not include abortion.
Sometimes I think, debating the Left really isn’t fair, because it’s like having a hard-charging philosophical conversation with a monkey. I then realize that, in an engagement between a monkey and an intellectual, the monkey often wins. It’s just not victory at an intellectual level.Email This Post To A Friend
