Via JMG, we learn today that One Million Moms, the right-wing guardians of all that is pure and holy, is hawking a device called TVGuardian.
Have you ever been watching what you thought was a good, clean, family movie…only to be ambushed by crude, offensive language? Ever heard God’s name used in vain or Jesus’ name as a cuss word on TV? The leading cable and satellite providers in America KNOW that families and people of faith don’t want obscene language on TV…yet they continue to do NOTHING about it. Now there’s a way YOU can take control over the language in your home: TVGuardian, the only foul language filter available for TV today. TVGuardian is a small box you connect to your TV and it automatically filters out foul language…crude language…sexual language…racial slurs…even God’s name in vain and Jesus’ name used as a cussword!
They want $129 for one of these little devices.
I have one on my TV and doesn’t cost a cent. It’s called a Mute button. There’s also something called the Off button.
I wonder what it was like at the TVGuardian factory when they were coming up with the list of “foul language” to include in the blocking software. That must have been fun: “Hey, what about ‘sanctimonious busybodies’ — should that be on the list? What about ‘closet case Speedo sniffer’?”
Isn’t it nice that a bunch of right-wing Jesus-shouting control freaks can dictate what you and your family should be watching on TV? It’s so much better than you having to think for yourself or do your job as a parent.
