Let’s face it, Chrysler exploited the late Paul Harvey’s 1978 speech to the Future Farmers of America “So God Made a Farmer” in the 4th quarter of Super Bowl XLVII in order to sell Dodge Rams. Still, with pictures of various farmers farming and doing everything else farming families do supplementing Harvey’s words, it was easily the best and most powerful commercial of the evening–despite the mocking it has since received from liberals in our midst.
The 2-minute ad didn’t have the pizzazz of gorgeous models kissing nerdy dweebs or elders getting tattooed or planets called Babylandia or monkeys or puppies. And it had any number of other shortcomings, for liberals. For one, Harvey had at least three black marks against him: He was religious, conservative, and successful. For another, the commercial extolled hard work, dedication, industriousness, families, pride, and religiosity, concepts anathema to many liberal ilk.
A few Twitter critics:
@BillCorbett: “’God made a farmer’ = GIANT eff you to hunter-gatherers everywhere.”
@djhoch: “Atheists should take out a ‘There’s no god’ SB spot. Imagine the outcry.”
@exZACHlythat: “Everyone with a thick country accent in my class is j—ing themselves over the Paul Harvey God made a farmer commercial.”
@CJenney33: “Alright God made a farmer, I get it everyone. He made a lot more important people too so get over yourselves.”
Liberals can be awfully illiberal.
With all due apologies to the late, great Paul Harvey–and to God–I offer “So God Made a Liberal”:
And on the 8th day God looked down on his planned paradise and said, “I need some comic relief.” So, God made a liberal.
God said I need somebody to let others work while he sits back and relaxes and gets paid for his laziness. So, God made a liberal.
I need somebody with the strength to procreate and then allow others to take care of his progeny. So, God created a liberal.
God said “I need somebody that can burglarize a home, steal a car, get a gun, attack others, shape a shiv in prison, and waste countless hours of his life. So, God made a liberal.
God had to have somebody willing to spend money earned by hard-working people on progressive scams. So, God made a liberal.
God said, “I need somebody able to convince people that guns kill people while they protect themselves with guns. So, God made a liberal.
God said he needed hypocritical liars to show the value of truth. So, God made a liberal.
God said, ”I want to demonstrate the horrors of abortion in order that people will come to realize the depths of that horror.” So, God made a liberal.
God had to have someone as an example of such an extreme reprobate that he’d be delighted when his son says he wants to spend his life “doing what dad does.” So, God made a liberal.
Incidentally, God may have made good farmers and rotten liberals but Barack Obama effectively created Chrysler Group LLC which is no longer an American company. Fiat now owns 61.8% of Chrysler and the UAW pension fund owns 38.2% and Fiat’s Sergio Marchionne is its Chairman and CEO. Do remember Paul Harvey but forget about buying a Dodge Ram! Buy American instead!
