Korean car manufacturer Kia may have taken the cake for the most pro-America advertisement during this year’s Superbowl with its “The Great Unknowns” commercial celebrating the rural Americans who make America great.
The advertisement features halting music and a child’s arresting voice over that describes the lives of rural Americans in the small Georgia town where Kia owns a factory.
“We are not famous. There are no stars on the sidewalk for us. No statues for our honor. We’re just a small Georgia town of complete unknowns. The closest thing to a world stage is 81 miles away,” the child says, “Our movie stardom, our football careers, they never kick off.”
“Because we’re not known for who we are, we hope to be known for what we do,” said the child, referencing the automobiles manufactured in the small town, “What we build, this thing we’ve assembled, it has a chance to be remembered.”
“No we are not famous, but we are incredible. And we make incredible things.”
The commercial offered a stunning rebuke to the usual left-wing talking points expressed in the advertisements, and is already being praised as one of the best commercials of the evening.
Superbowl LIII also offered another surprise in the form of a five-man sign wave encouraging viewers to subscribe to top YouTube star PewDiePie, with fellow content creator MrBeast taking credit for the stunt.
In the first half of the Superbowl, cameras spotted five fans of YouTuber PewDiePie, real name Felix Kjellberg, encouraging viewers to subscribe to the YouTube giant to prevent the YouTube channel of Indian mega-corporation T-Series from surpassing him in viewers.
Fellow YouTube creator Mr Beast, real name Jimmy Donaldson, previously told fans to make sure to watch tonight’s Superbowl, leading some to believe there may be a pro-PewDiePie advertisement some time within the program.
However, as such an ad would cost $35 million to run nationally, MrBeast confirmed on Twitter that this was his scheme all along.
British Police Officer CRIMINALLY CHARGED for Sharing George Floyd Meme in WhatsApp Group
Free speech is dead.
A British police officer has been criminally charged over a George Floyd meme he allegedly shared with his colleagues in a WhatsApp group.
“Sergeant Geraint Jones, aged 47, is charged with sending the image on 30 May last year by means of a public electronic communications network, an offence contrary to section 127 of the Communications Act 2003,” a watchdog from the Independent Office for Police Conduct announced. “An altered image of George Floyd’s arrest in Minneapolis was shared within a WhatsApp group that included a number of other police officers and staff.”
“Our investigation began in June 2020 following a referral from the force,” the watchdog continued. “At its conclusion in October we sent our investigation report to the Crown Prosecution Service, which has authorized the charge.”
Sergeant Jones is scheduled to appear in court on January 28. He has been suspended from duty since June.
It’s no secret that free speech is all but dead in the United Kingdom. British elites stand out in particular for their fervent belief in neoliberal globalism and veneration of its secular saints. Their society encourages people to snitch and tattle on their fellow citizens to a higher degree than most any other Western nation.
George Floyd is also one of the neoliberal order’s foremost secular saints. Anything you say about him that isn’t equivalent to hero-worship will get you put on notice. Criticizing the intensity of his veneration and the Black Lives Matter movement itself are sufficient to get you labeled as a depraved racist and fired from your job—even in the United States.
Don’t think that hate speech laws aren’t possible in America either. If a majority of Americans and legal scholars in a decade or two come to believe that the First Amendment doesn’t protect “hate speech,” who’s to say that the laws won’t be changed to reflect that?
