New ad campaign from NPR calls on listeners to….have babies?

New ad campaign from NPR calls on listeners to….have babies?

Local Chicago NPR station WBEZ has unrolled an advertising campaign for its membership drive that calls on its listeners to “go make babies today.”

The facebook-based microsite, “Go Makes Babies,” features a five-question assessment that with the question, “The quickest way to get me thinking about reproduction: 1) Good music, 2) Good food, 3) Good laughs.” It then it gives you your matches, presumably other facebook users.

While it’s the kind of twee marketing approach that their progressive listeners might find compelling, it may reveal a legitimate concern that birth rates today may effect the politics of tomorrow. Joel Kotkin provided an interesting analysis of who will win the Hispanic vote and how the nuclear family unit’s health will affect voting behavior.

And NPR can be counted on, in this case most assuredly, to reinforce the going Hollywood message that children are an accessory, a means to an end, without mentioning the trite and old-fashioned institution of marriage.

One wonders if Lena Dunham was unavailable for the video message that ought to have accompanied this ad campaign.

NPR better start broadcasting in Spanish to accommodate the next wave of illegal immigrants … that’s the future of America, folks, and that’s the group that procreates like bunnies … ensuring a future of solid democratic voters and ‘gimme class’ takers for generations to come. Unfortunately, this is not sarcasm.

“And NPR can be counted on, in this case most assuredly, to reinforce the going Hollywood message that children are an accessory, a means to an end, without mentioning the trite and old-fashioned institution of marriage.”

If they want an “accessory”, they should get a dog. Babies are anything but.

Shawty Lo should be their poster child.

Latest Arbitron rating for WBEZ-FM: 1.3

Lowest rated Spanish language station for Chicago market:
WLEY-FM: 1.7 (¡Es la LEY! ¡Escucha en vivo El Plebe ahora!)

The only people who consistently listen to WBEZ are middle eastern cab drivers. ¿Por qué?

What’s funny about this is that by far (especially by percentage) the greatest number of babies being murdered by abortion by Planned Parenthood are black. And this is Chicago, so you know the numbers are astronomical.

And NPR needs more babies. Maybe they should stop aborting potential viewers?

I think NPR has seen the future, and it doesn’t include them. A bunch of somebodys at NPR are scared – they know they’re not going to persuade non-listeners to start listening.

NPR needs to get with it. To properly accessorize with a Mark-1 Fashion Baby, that baby needs to be a Chinese girl or a boy from some exotic Turd World African country, such as Ethiopia, Mali, Madagascar or Somalia.

Only us neck-bearded, mouth-breathing, Bible-thumping, gun-clinging, mullet-wearing, America-loving, unreconstructed corn-pones and our Loretta Lynn-looking, Sarah Palin glasses-wearing wives adopt white or Hispanic kids anymore. And love ’em like our own.

“Remember, it’s Pledge Week at WBEZ 91.5. Help make this Pledge Week successful by contributing today, and help make future Pledge Weeks successful by making babies tonight. We now return you to our interview with Ilyse Hogue, the new president of NARAL Pro-Choice America.”

Hmm, not going to make the leftist enviro-wackos happy. I thought the left was pushing for population reduction at any cost. So confusing.

There is an article over at American Thinker about about gay marriage & the effects on babies collectively. That these people cannot procreate yet they will demand babies be given to Them.

The numbers required if under 29s are as lbgt as they claim ( fashionable) then tens of millions of babies will be required. This can only be achieved by baby farms & surrogacy slavery in the US.

The US is the most liberal market for buying babies with its lax surrogacy laws & adoptions. For example , the British Opposition Leader wanted children .Britain with its myriad laws was not an option so he went to America & bought 2 little live white boys. The white boys were £13,000 each & did not need the 50% discount for a black baby.

I think the NPR wants babies to be a commodity , because normal family bonds are still in evidence .no matter what they say . Every kid , every adolescent , every young adult wants a mother & father .

Banned, Elton John and his boyfriend/partner/whatever just adopted a baby. Not only will the two boys they’ve adopted not have a mother and father, but who would let someone as old as Elton John adopt if he wasn’t rich and famous?

As a parent of two teenagers, I am seeing first hand how important a stable family with a mother and father is. So many of my daughters’ friends are engaging in self-destructive behavior and it breaks my heart.

    Yes , he wanted to adopt a Ukrainian boy from an ‘orphanage ‘ but the ukes said he was way too old.

    Then he went to the USA.

    An invasion of British homosexuals so they can ‘father ‘ children . frightening .

Maybe the stupid fuckers should stop pushing abortion.
