Comedy Central really hates conservatives, especially the social ones. Have you seen Daniel Tosh making vicious fun of pro-lifers in a fake ad for Dr. Dre headphones?
Tosh and his girlfriend drive up to a modest-looking Planned Parenthood location and face a barrage of cartoonishly angry protesting haters that make the girlfriend tear up, while Tosh is happily tuning them out with his awesome headphones (video below):
Hat tip to Hans Johnson at JillStanek.com who noted Tosh's sister-in-law is the CEO of the Orlando Planned Parenthood, surely targeted by pro-lifers. "The over-the-top depiction of demonstrators was seriously undercut by the couple’s cavalier attitude."
That's how Tosh thinks he can get away of making light of a death. The pro-lifers are horrible and abusive, and the "father" getting the abortion is a numbskull who can just drown out the hateful protesters.
“We’re here and there are a lot of people out there,” Tosh tells his girlfriend at the start of the fake ad. “Remember this is our choice, and we are doing nothing wrong.” She says, “I know.”
“If you want to change your mind, that is totally your decision — even though I think it’s a really bad one,” Tosh added. The girlfriend says “there’s no way I’m changing my mind. We both know you would be a horrible father.”
“I wanna pay – for my half. Alright. Let’s get that demon baby out of you,” Tosh says before putting on Beats by Dre headphones and stepping out of the car.
In a satire of actual Dre ads, Tosh is enjoying a soul song by Aloe Blacc (“I’m the Man”) while a series of men scream at the girlfriend: “You’re a fat whore!...I hope your dead baby haunts you!...Don’t take a life because you can’t close your legs!...You’re gonna burn in Hell!” A woman added, “Your face is an abortion!”
As if this is what the typical clinic protest is like. But how many people have watched clinic protesters? Certainly, not Comedy Central chuckle-heads. The so-called pro-life signs included:
– “LEGGO MY PREGO”
– “GIRLS ARE STUPID”
– “I CAN’T BREATHE, MOMMY” (with an unborn baby inside a vacuum cleaner)
– “What if that fetus was Jesus”
– “ROLL TIDE” (an almost complete non sequitur, except for Alabama overtones)
-- And “I want my baby back, baby back, baby back.” (Okay, that last one’s a little funny.)
