Dirty Tricks

Folks, did you see the “she must be a choice” ad that’s supposedly by Planned Parenthood? The ad is fake, right? They are being set up?

I choked on my coffee and spilled it all over the newly washed floor when I saw it. I hate this kind of dirty tricks. You can oppose the organization without being a dick about it. Did the supposedly pro-baby makers of the ad consider that the baby will grow up and hear “she must be a choice” about herself?

People are totally losing it in propaganda wars.

    As smartphones continue in making everybody stupider, parody is becoming harder and harder to pull off…

    *my name for when people don’t realize a parody is… parody, after an event where the Chinese government mistook an Onion article for real news


    1. Just to ad, I have to run to class so I’m not sure if the ad or just the story is parody, I’m afraid I wouldn’t put it past Planned Parenthood to do something this tone deaf… will continue to put off real work while I chase this down further later on today.
