Karl Rove Drives A Jaguar...

a manly man's car, now more than ever.

Americablog is doing great work by shining the spotlight on Ford Motor Company crumbling to pressure from America's Taliban.

"Ford Motor Co.'s decision to cease advertising in gay publications for its Jaguar and Land Rover luxury brands is part of a truce between the auto maker and the American Family Assn. (AFA) to avert a threatened boycott by the right-wing Christian conservative group.
As part of the latest agreement hammered out Nov. 29, sources confirm Volvo Cars will continue to advertise in the publications but will use generic ads not tailored to the gay community. In addition, Ford has agreed not to sponsor any future gay and lesbian events but will continue to maintain its employee policies, such as same-sex partner benefits."
Personally, I won't be buying any Ford products in the near future let alone their stock. Think about it - Ford just destroyed any goodwill it had with a group whose spending power will hit $610 billion this year. That figure is not far behind African-Americans and Hispanic-Americans in buying power. Maybe Ford should consider selling those groups cars designed to only drive in reverse to send them back to Africa and Mexico?
This reminds me of how Henry Ford, Sr. was uber anti-semetic and a Nazi sympathizer personally decorated for his support by Adolph Hitler in 1938. Perhaps you missed his bestseller?
I think I am going to look into this action by Ford and AFA as both a hate crime and a conspiracy.

Oh PJ. You are a gem. "In reverse." Classic. "Hate crime." Brilliant. I am so glad you're on MY side.

Fords are awful automobiles. I don't recommend them at all. FORD stands for 'Found on The Road Dead' with good reason. I use to drive a Taurus years ago, and it has caused me mechanical problems even though I kept up preventive maintenance. Never again will drive a Ford.

That's what I had to do with my 1987 Taurus. Fix or Repair daily.

After 10 years driving that piece of crap. I opted for a 1996 Nissan Altima. Great Car. Have to fixed it once in a blue moon of course with age that is to be expected. However, for a ten year old car that Altima gets me where I need to go from point A to point B. It has approximately 73,000 miles.

When I had my 1987 Taurus it had 75,000 miles when I got rid of it in 1996. It was nothing but a money pit.

Well, that is why Ford dealership is sinking due to high number of vehicles recalled, sinking profits, given into the hypocrisy of the AFA to pull ads from gay magazines. No wonder Toyota vehicles are excellent vehicles and making huge profits. The company has a huge partner besides the minority groups: GALA. Maybe Ford can learn something from Toyota.

PJF: You go man! I'm right with you -- nail them for 'hate'.

Love it. I'm not gay, straight as they come -->'live and let live' is my motto.

Nail 'em to the wall.

Wow, I had bno idea about the nazi Ford connection. Thanks for that piece of info. It's amazing to me how all of these things appear to be connected. It gets scarier and scarier but the truth is that this has been going on for some time. Only now, ordinary peoplle are finding out about it and sharing the information and the ruse is being exposed on almost a daily basis, thanks to our friend and truthseeker, the unbuyable Patrick J Fitzgerald.

The American Taliban - ao aptly described by Sir Patrick, have really been planning well and they are very crafty and hide behind religion and economic power and their "patriotism" which is really the same type of Nationalism espoused by the Nazi's. They are the Americaliban, or the Evangeliban. In Afghanistan and Iran, the religious right was capabale of imprisoning their societies with this extremeism within just a few years. The citizens complained but could never believe that it would get that bad. So we citizense have to be vigilant, smart and strong in standing up to these guys - oh , and LOUD, very LOUD.

eh,
the Jaguar is NOT a manly man's car.

It is for the poser/priss/thinks he's elegant man.

A real man wouldn't touch that thing with a ten-foot pole.

A real woman won't go near him either..
probably gets a mani every week.

Eeek.

Is Karl Rove married? I agree with Lois Lane about the Jaguar and the prissy man...does anybody know if the brain of the Family Valiban is even married? I truly feel a wee bit (very wee) of sympathy for the Mrs. if he is. If he aint then maybe Jeff Gannon could tell us who his special friends are.

Huh. You didn't know about Henry Ford's anti-semitism? Maybe it's because he's been off the list of Michigan best fiction writers for a few years now ...

Rove might drive a Jaguar now but with this pending indictment and conviction he'll be walking alot. If he gets out of Federal prison he'll be taking the bus. Oh Bush/Cheney will have to do a fun raiser for Rove like they did for DeLay.

Jaguars are also know to spend a lot of time in the shop. A friend of mine use to own one. He had to get rid of it because the car had spend more time in the shop than out on the road.

I guess that is why Ford acquired Jaguars.

My next car will be a Camry. Great car. My dad just bought one two years ago, and it rides very well.
