Ford Flip Flops

After bowing down to the American Taliban, and announcing they would be pulling the limited advertising aimed at the gay market, Ford has now announced they will expand advertising in gay targeting publications.

responding to complaints from several gay-rights activists that it had cut Jaguar and Land Rover advertising in gay publications due to pressure from an antigay group, said Wednesday it would instead run corporate-wide ads featuring all of its brands.

Earlier, Ford had pulled is Land Rover and Jaguar ads from these publications. Ford said it was a business decision, but some of the Taliban leadership and a few Ford dealers indicated that the decision was driven by demands from religious fringe groups.

Now, we get to see how the American Family Association and these other groups respond to this move, and if Ford will flip flop again.
