OT 4X4 Bigots

Ya know this seems to be happening more and more these day, or maybe Im just becoming more sensitive in my old age. Advertisers and the media are constantly depicting people who drive 4x4s in blatantly negative terms. When I saw this Ad I had to ask myself what exactly are they trying to say. Some kind of psycho, axe murdering rapist with a 4x4 might attack your daughter after jump starting her Neon? Or maybe she might fall for some pimple faced, wrench head, grease monkey who couldnt finish high school who just happens to drive a 4x4.
Ya know if that were a black man in a low rider you can bet youre a$$ they would be getting sued.

I find it kinda ironic because its the guys in the 4x4s who would go out of their way to help a stranger.

Re: OT 4X4 Bigots

Without an explanation I wouldn't get it..

Heck, I still don't really get it.

I think someone should write them a letter asking exaclty what they were trying to say with this ad.

And I totaly understand about 4-wheeling rednecks going out of their way.

It's been snowing here heavily for just over a week. So far I've pulled 3 econo-cars out of ditches and 2 SUV's. I've seen one other built rig pulling someone out of a ditch too.

BUT, I haven't seen a single Neon or CRV helping anyone.

I tihnk a formal letter of complaint is in order if this ad is anywhere close to recent (last 4 months)

Re: OT 4X4 Bigots

They're British- I don't think its really supposed to make sense!

or maybe they fear these American-type vehicles assisting their daughters?

Re: OT 4X4 Bigots

Just to clarify things, BCAA, British Columbia (Canada)Automobile Association is the provincial wing of CAA which is the Canadian wing of AAA from the US.
There's nothing British here other then a few loyalist still living in Oak Bay, and they drive Jags and RR's.

Re: OT 4X4 Bigots

You are correct. It is subtle and cunning propaganda.
A vile twist of facts to prey on the phobias of the timid and fearful.

This advertiser, BCAA, needs a pile of letters, e-mails and calls tying up their business until they with draw the ad. a good place to start is their "dot com".

This is the way the gun has been vilified to became a object with its own will, a desire to do harm!
Of course the mindless idiots who believe this garbage, about guns having their own will, think nothing of dialing 911 and calling a cop to help them, who is armed with gun. I guess we have our education system to thank for this stupidity.

Sorry you hit my HOT button.

Re: OT 4X4 Bigots

I dunno, but I think the ad means that his daughter forgot to hook up the negative terminal.

Re: OT 4X4 Bigots

It means that your daughter will be having to jump start Chevy trucks with her Neon on a regular basis, unless all of the Chevy owners get roadside service. Hehehe
