The Usual Gang Of Idiots (Or Pretty Little Liars)

Rarely does a comedian get an opportunity as easy and cheap as this one.  General Mills pulled their advertising on the show, Pretty Little Liars at the whim of a hate group called The Florida Family Association because of lesbian characters, and then had the bollocks to say that, in spite of the evidence, that this was not their reason.  So, pretty little liars involved in a scandal over Pretty Little Liars.  I’ll try not to take the obvious route.  That’s been covered.  Everyone knows what an offensive moron Jeff Hagen is.  Everybody already knows why he really pulled the advertising.  I can’t possibly add anything new.  I want to focus on Kevin Hunt.

Why Kevin Hunt?  Who is Kevin Hunt.  Well, to put it in terms of Godwin’s Law, Kevin Hunt is a Nazi.  But seriously, he really is fascist, but that’s not all.  He’s also probably a child.  If he’s not a child, I feel very sorry for him and his condition of mental retardation.  I feel even more sorry for General Mills who only keep him on staff because the ADA does not allow him to be fired over a medical condition.

So, what happened?  There is the GM blog entry about the scandal.  You can take your time reading that.  It’s okay.  I’ll wait.

Now, you see my comment at the bottom there?  Well, it was “waiting for moderation” for three days before it finally appeared censored today.  Why did it appear censored?  Well, last night, I left another one about how dissent was being silenced and my fake Email had a message from Kevin Hunt today.  It read:

The Ceej…

Just saw your second comment this morning to “A Taste of General Mills,” made last night, referencing your first comment.

We moderate comments according to our Community Guidelines for the site. Because you used profanity in your first comment, we won’t post it.

But if you would like to resubmit your original comment without the profanity I will post it and add it to the others who have commented on the page.

Thanks for reading our blog.

So, what did the full version say?  This:

@Rockie

I was going to call him on that bullshit too. I wish I had seen your post before looking it up.

Pretty Little Liars is a pretty good show title for this scandal because that’s exactly what I see when I see FFA and GM talking to us about it.

Okay.  Perfectly acceptable?  Not even the rudest comment on the blog? Even more polite and less offensive than all the ones by Tom Forsythe?  I agree.  So, failing to see anything profane about my comment, I asked him to define, “profanity.”  He failed to do so, but only told me to remove the word, “bullshit.”  He didn’t say why or, God forbid, answer my first question.  So, I posted the comment again, but it looked a little something like this:

They told me to resubmit my comment without the word, “bullshit” in it. but did not explain what the problem with using the word, “bullshit” was. So, here is my comment without the word, “bullshit:”

I was going to call him on that (This is where the word, “bullshit” was but is being removed) too. I wish I had seen your post before looking it up.

Pretty Little Liars is a pretty good show title for this scandal because that’s exactly what I see when I see FFA and GM talking to us about it.

This is what we call, in the industry, a fuck you.  He told me the problem was the word, but failed to explain why, so his point was invalid.  Unless you can explain what the problem is with a word, you’re being a child.  He never sent me another Email and he deleted every post I made up to that point except for the original one, which he censored and then approved.  As it is, I’ve made several comments behind that that will probably be removed, but are currently waiting for approval.  I should preserve their legacy:

    Well, look at that. Kevin Hunt censored my post. He told me (falsely), that he wasn’t going to approve it because it had profanity. Then, when I asked him what was profane about it, he told me, without any explanation at all, to remove the word, “bullshit.” He still hasn’t explained what was profane about it, and now he censored my comment.

    What the hell is wrong with Kevin Hunt? If the Soviet Union ever had a child as a leader, it would be Kevin Hunt.

    Also, he deleted the posts calling him on the REAL reason for the censorship, but you guys probably already know. I would wager that 100% of dissenters have been through the same crap I just got put through.

    Kevin Hunt:

    You are too immature to hold your position. Please resign and pass your torch to a five-year-old.

So, you see, I go so far that even I would consider deleting a comment or two from this group, and I’ve never deleted a comment that at least held some relevance.

So, if you want to contact Kevin Hunt and demand he tell you what is so special about one word that it’s not allowed on his blog, here is his Email address:  Kevin.Hunt@genmills.com

Be sure to tell him The Ceej sent you.

    I think you should probably pick your battles. You started out fighting against GM for being liars, and now you’re focusing your energy on censorship of GM’s blog.

      I’m not focusing my energy on it. Just bringing it to the public eye. Exposing censorship is exposing lying because only liars censor.
