It appears as though the toiletries company Dove is keen on getting its wings clipped.
Dove, the soap outfit owned by the London-based multinational giant Unilever, has taken a page out of Bud Light’s book of marketing best-practices and partnered with a controversial radical to peddle their wares and advance a woke agenda.
Rather than once again having a transvestite make a mockery out of womanhood, the soap company has teamed up with a morbidly obese BLM radical known for her iconoclasm, her aversion to healthy living, and for allegedly ruining the life of a white student over a “misheard” comment.
What’s the background?
Zyahna Bryant, 22, is a leftist community organizer and former DEI intern who recently
graduated from the University of Virginia in Charlottesville. She prides herself on harboring a lifelong antipathy towards the police, having supposedly organized her first rally for Trayvon Martin at the age of 12.
Years later, she petitioned to have the Robert E. Lee statue in Charlottesville, Virginia, taken down and other elements of the area’s history erased.
reported earlier this year that Bryant allegedly destroyed the reputation of a fellow student at the University of Virginia, claiming Morgan Bettinger had said protestors, including some who were black, would make “good speedbumps,” when in reality it appears she had just lauded a driver for protecting BLM protestors from oncoming traffic “because otherwise, these people would have been speed bumps.”
Bryant launched a vicious campaign against Bettinger. Not only did she advance her preferred narrative on social media, but she allegedly sought to have her fellow student expelled from UVA.
Upon investigating the incident, two different UVA organizations reportedly agreed with Bettinger’s account whereby the comment was not as Bryant had framed it, but instead innocuous in nature.
Bryant later admitted she may have “misheard” Bettinger’s words on the day in question.
Despite Bryant’s admission and a dearth of evidence, UVA’s University Judiciary Committee found Bettinger guilty of using “shameful rhetoric” which “put members of the community at risk.” As a consequence of the ruling, Bettinger, who had already been subjected to horrible abuse as a result of Bryant’s allegations, ended up with an expulsion in abeyance on her permanent record and had to both write the BLM radical an apology and perform 50 hours of community service with a social justice group.
Bettinger is considering filing a lawsuit,
reported the Daily Mail.
Bryant announced on Instagram Aug. 31 that she was partnering with Dove to support the work of both National Association to Advance Fat Acceptance and the Fat Legal Advocacy Rights and Education project.
“My belief is that we should be centering the voices and experiences of the most marginalized people and communities at all times,” said Bryant. “So when I think about what that liberation looks like, to me, it looks like centering the voices and the experiences of those who live and who maneuvered through spaces and institutions in a fat body.”
Liberation from morbid obesity apparently does not involve self-restraint, exercise and healthy eating. Rather, according to Bryant, “it looks like making accessible spaces and having conversations that are aware of the fact that people have different bodies and that they are interacting with space and people and institutions and communities in a different way.”
The Dove initiative of which Bryant appears to be a large part
aims to “strengthen legal protection against body size discrimination and shift cultural conversations around a broader definition of beauty through education, advocacy and social responsibility.”
The soap company is raising concern not about the lethality of being morbidly overweight but about the “likelihood of experienc[ing] name-calling/bullying.”
This latest woke initiative is hardly the first for Dove, which routinely
blows millions of dollars on radical groups, such as Black Lives Matter, and leftist attempts at social engineering.
Earlier this year, Dove
ran an ad celebrating a fat video game character who tossed away armor that had made her appear thin as part of a campaign “to eliminate beauty stereotypes.”
The company is not simply fight against traditional beauty standards and to maximize surface area for its products, but also promoting radical gender ideology. In fact, the company was on the bleeding edge of hyping transgenderism, featuring a transvestite pretending to be a mother in a
2017 ad titled “#RealMoms.”
Dove is a keen supporter of LGBT activism, “not just during pride month, but every single day.”
