Progressives' "Brosurance" Ads Are An Embarrassment

And, it seems to me, an insult to Millennials.

I'm not a Millennial and I can't know their minds, but personally, I'd take it as an insult that Obama's Minions believe this is the way to "relate" to me.


Other ads similarly depict "Bros" as moronic idlers.

Oh, but there's a Brosurance ad for the ladies, too. This one portrays young women as daffy idiots having fantasy relationships with Movie Stars.

I don't know if he's right about these being taxpayer-funded ads -- but I don't know he's wrong, either. The left is claiming otherwise. They don't exactly have a lot of credibility with me. But I will note their objection to the claim, until I can get an unbiased take on it.

Oh, and these geniuses aren't done yet. It's not just that they conceive as Millennial women as choosing their politics and their health-care according to which Movie Stars they're in Fantasy Relationships with. They also seem to believe that young women are infantile and incompetent enough to need the help of government in securing $8 birth control pills from Wal*Mart.

Do Millennials really see themselves this way? My God, I hope not.

You know, I bust on Millennials a lot. So that is Enemy Action.

But I think these ads are worse. When I insult Millennials, I mean to insult them. I'm trying to blame and shame them for their vapid grasp of policy (and reality).

Again, that's an Enemy Action. And the insult, while insulting, is less hurtful, precisely because one knows it comes from an enemy's mouth.

But here are people trying to appeal to Millennials. They present themselves as "friends." They "get" you, Man.

And here is what they think appeals to you -- pictures of young people in Party Hardy poses and daffy young stupid things who think Ryan Gosling is like sooo dreamy and my God where would I get birth control pills if Obama didn't draw me a map?


If this actually is appealing to Millennials -- and they find this to be non-demeaning -- then every insult I've shot their way is true.
