An analysis of Progressive Insurance commercials

Before we delve into the absolute ridiculousness of Progressive commercials first a little background on Peter Lewis, the former CEO of Progressive, current Chairman of the Board, and son of the original founder.

According to Wikipedia, Lewis has made massive donations to extreme leftist groups including the ACLU, Moveon.org, TRACTION, America Coming Together, and the greatest leftist extremist group, the Democratic Party.

You can see what side of the political spectrum this kook is on, and it echoes in Progressive's whacked out commercials featuring the crackwhore we know of as "Flo". In nearly every Progressive commercial featuring a male, the man is portrayed as feminine, only all too fitting in the progressives' view of "sexual equality" and "gender relativity" coupled with the modern day feminist movement. Just have a look at these ads and you can see the subtle, and sometimes blatant, PROGRESSIVE agenda.

The woman in charge with her weakling husband following her around like a cute puppy.

Just a typical latte sipping liberal weakling.

A teenage girl in a man's body.

I don't need to add anything here.

Am I being too nitpicky? No. This is a political agenda embedded into the ads of a left wing company, and that's all there is to it.

On a related subject, I can't believe Christians not raising a ruckus at Nationwide's "4givn" advertising ploy. Since they haven't, I assume they don't care about the sliminess of such things. For my opinion, please check out (copy and paste in your browser if the link doesn’t transfer):

You would be surprised how much of this can be found in all forms of advertising.

I must admit that I was a Progressive customer for many years... It never dawned on me until a friend pointed it out... I switched instantly... In your karma factor, I was envolved in an accident in which I was originally (wrongly) charged... I went to court and beat the charge... Two years later Progressive paid $30,000.00 to the person who caused the accident... They never got anywhere that amount from me in premiums...
