This petition against Dove soap over their use of ‘transgenders’ is gaining steam

When you run out of products to sell, you invent a new market in which to sell repackaged products.

A bizarre advertisement for Dove soap products has caused outrage. In the commercial for their products, a man dressed as a woman along with an apparent actual woman are both portrayed as ‘mothers’ of a young child. A petition has been started urging Dove which is owned by multi-national corporation Unilever, to understand some basic facts, namely that a man cannot be a mother.

The petition along with your opportunity to sign can be found here.

Conservative commentator Mark Dice was recently censored on Facebook for expressing his outrage at the Dove advertisement.

Many people have theories as to why a corporate organisation would seek to manipulate basic facts of life in order to promote an idea that men can be mothers. Such a thing is simply impossible according to the most basic facts of biology. Only women can be mothers and only men can be fathers, it’s mindbogglingly basic.

With so many people focused on ‘how’ one could re-define basic biology, the bigger question is why?

The answer lies in a strange metaphysical and economic phenomenon that is as old as the concept of marketing itself: selling people what they don’t need for a price that many cannot afford.

When one has exhausted all forms of selling men’s products and women’s products, what does one do? One invents a new product, the ‘trans-man or trans-woman’ product, as it currently is defined by some.

But of course, they cannot state it so blatantly as it would look too much like what it is: a crude marketing stunt. So instead, one uses the tried and true methods of modern marketing and says that there is a market and moreover that said market needs new products. It’s a classic cause of ‘build it and they will come’.

In this case, they invent the product and then pretend that the need is pre-existing, when it fact the ‘need’ has been invented along with the product. All of the sudden, people think they need to alter their bodies, lifestyles and hobbies. They more importantly need to now buy special products of all varieties for these re-modelled bodies/lifestyles and even build new bathroom facilities for those new bodies.

And it is not just in products, the medical market and the building of new bathrooms where there is money to be made. Enter Bill Nye, known as ‘The Science Guy’. He made a career as a TV scientist who told young people the basics of physics, biology and chemistry.

He had a good product, but it reached its natural end point, so in the true entrepreneurial spirit, he reinvented science.

One clear example of Nye’s ‘reinvention’ marketing gimmick is that in an old episode of his ‘Science Guy’ show, he clearly explained the biological differences between human males and human females. Now he’s changed his tune and says there are a ‘kaleidoscope’ of genders. He’s even gone so far as to have Netflix remove the following clip from his old show where he seemed to be more of a science guy than a marketing guy.

Many people have simply been duped. They think that men are women and women are men and everyone can be this that or the other because it makes a lot of people a lot of money. It gives otherwise boring commentators air time, book deals and profitable websites. It gives companies like Dove a new way to sell more products. It gives promoters new events to put on and sponsors new places to get their brands visible.

It gives the PR industry an opportunity to cultivate new clients by selling and promoting things that just a few years ago were not even known items.

It’s quite an ingenuous move…that is to say if one thinks that the free market should have no morals or ethics.

If one believes that making money is a good thing but that it should not be at the expense of weakening traditional values, religion, basic science or a sense of social normalcy, then it is most certainly a bad thing.

People must forgo the lies and the deceit and ask themselves a question: where does capitalism end and decency begin?

Trump Has Gifted “No More Wars” Policy Position To Bernie Sanders (Video)

The Duran Quick Take: Episode 148.

Alex Christoforou

Published

RT CrossTalk host Peter Lavelle and The Duran’s Alex Christoforou discuss how US President Donald Tump appears to have ceded his popular 2016 ‘no more wars’ campaign message and policy position to Bernie Sanders and any other US 2020 candidate willing to grad onto a non-interventionist approach to the upcoming Democrat primaries.

“Is Bernie Stealing Trump’s ‘No More Wars’ Issue?” by Patrick J. Buchanan…


The center of gravity of U.S. politics is shifting toward the Trump position of 2016.

“The president has said that he does not want to see this country involved in endless wars… I agree with that,” Bernie Sanders told the Fox News audience at Monday’s town hall meeting in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.

Then turning and staring straight into the camera, Bernie added:

“Mr. President, tonight you have the opportunity to do something extraordinary: Sign that resolution. Saudi Arabia should not be determining the military or foreign policy of this country.”

Sanders was talking about a War Powers Act resolution that would have ended U.S. involvement in the five-year civil war in Yemen that has created one of the great humanitarian crises of our time, with thousands of dead children amidst an epidemic of cholera and a famine.

Supported by a united Democratic Party on the Hill, and an anti-interventionist faction of the GOP led by Sens. Rand Paul and Mike Lee of Utah, the War Powers resolution had passed both houses of Congress.

But 24 hours after Sanders urged him to sign it, Trump, heeding the hawks in his Cabinet and National Security Council, vetoed S.J.Res.7, calling it a “dangerous attempt to weaken my constitutional authorities.”

With sufficient Republican votes in both houses to sustain Trump’s veto, that should be the end of the matter.

It is not: Trump may have just ceded the peace issue in 2020 to the Democrats. If Sanders emerges as the nominee, we will have an election with a Democrat running on the “no-more-wars” theme Trump touted in 2016. And Trump will be left defending the bombing of Yemeni rebels and civilians by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman of Saudi Arabia.

Does Trump really want to go into 2020 as a war party president?

Does he want to go into 2020 with Democrats denouncing “Trump’s endless wars” in the Middle East? Because that is where he is headed.

In 2008, John McCain, leading hawk in the Senate, was routed by a left-wing first-term senator from Illinois, Barack Obama, who had won his nomination by defeating the more hawkish Hillary Clinton, who had voted to authorize the war in Iraq.

In 2012, the Republican nominee Mitt Romney, who was far more hawkish than Obama on Russia, lost.

Yet, in 2016, Trump ran as a different kind of Republican, an opponent of the Iraq War and an anti-interventionist who wanted to get along with Russia’s Vladimir Putin and get out of these Middle East wars.

Looking closely at the front-running candidates for the Democratic nomination of 2020 — Joe Biden, Sanders, Kamala Harris, Beto O’Rourke, Pete Buttigieg, Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker — not one appears to be as hawkish as Trump has become.

Trump pulled us out of the nuclear deal with Iran negotiated by Secretary of State John Kerry and reimposed severe sanctions.

He declared Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps a terrorist organization, to which Iran has responded by declaring U.S. Central Command a terrorist organization. Ominously, the IRGC and its trained Shiite militias in Iraq are in close proximity to U.S. troops.

Trump has recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, moved the U.S. Embassy there, closed the consulate that dealt with Palestinian affairs, cut off aid to the Palestinians, recognized Israel’s annexation of the Golan Heights seized from Syria in 1967, and gone silent on Bibi Netanyahu’s threat to annex Jewish settlements on the West Bank.

Sanders, however, though he stands by Israel, is supporting a two-state solution and castigating the “right-wing” Netanyahu regime.

Trump has talked of pulling all U.S. troops out of Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan. Yet the troops are still there.

Though Trump came into office promising to get along with the Russians, he sent Javelin anti-tank missiles to Ukraine and announced a pullout from Ronald Reagan’s 1987 INF treaty that outlawed all land-based intermediate-range nuclear missiles.

When Putin provocatively sent 100 Russian troops to Caracas — ostensibly to repair the S-400 anti-aircraft and anti-missile system that was damaged in recent blackouts — Trump, drawing a red line, ordered the Russians to “get out.”

Biden is expected to announce next week. If the stands he takes on Russia, China, Israel and the Middle East are more hawkish than the rest of the field, he will be challenged by the left wing of his party, and by Sanders, who voted “no” on the Iraq War that Biden supported.

The center of gravity of U.S. politics is shifting toward the Trump position of 2016. And the anti-interventionist wing of the GOP is growing.

And when added to the anti-interventionist and anti-war wing of the Democratic Party on the Hill, together, they are able, as on the Yemen War Powers resolution, to produce a new bipartisan majority.

Prediction: By the primaries of 2020, foreign policy will be front and center, and the Democratic Party will have captured the “no-more-wars” political high ground that Candidate Donald Trump occupied in 2016.

A series of eight explosions rocked Catholic churches and luxury hotels in Sri Lanka as Christians began Easter Sunday celebrations, with over 200 killed and hundreds injured, media reported, citing police.

The blasts started at around 8:45am local time at St. Anthony’s Church in Colombo and St. Sebastian’s Church in Negombo, a Catholic-majority town outside of the capital. The Zion Church in Batticaloa on the eastern coast was also targeted. At around the same time, the Shangri-La, Cinnamon Grand and Kingsbury five-star hotels were also hit, police confirmed.

Two more explosions happened later in the day, targeting two more locations in Colombo. All attacks appear to have been coordinated.

At least 207 people were killed, Reuters reported, citing police. More than 450 were injured in the attacks.

Alleged footage of the aftermath, shared on social media, showed chaos and large-scale destruction inside at least one of the churches.
