Celebrating the “spirit of the holidays,” Microsoft released an ad this week best described as a collage of Left-wing pet causes. The commercial features sympathetic images and cliches for Black Lives Matter, Syrian refugees, transgender activism and more general LGBT issues.
The ad features seven individuals, who according to Microsoft, represent “good and right” causes, which are anything but unifying issues — including two young children in connection with LGBT issues.
“Knowing that at least one adult cares can make the difference in the world to a transgendered youth,” says Jazz Jennings, a teenager whom the company’s press release acknowledges to be one of the youngest public figures to identify as transgender, in the ad. “Be that person.”
A mega-company like Microsoft could have produced a holiday ad most Americans would find inspiring. instead, the tech-giant opted to push a liberal agenda.
It is a shame that companies won’t just do the right thing without injecting political agendas into to the meaning, it truly takes the fun out of it.
