There is yet another group that has a web site to support anti-SUV sentiment - below are two of their commercials - I guess we now support terrorists

The Detroit Project by Americans for Fuel Efficient Cars

Scripts for the two ads
(11/21/02)

Parody #1

All talking heads framed within their SUVs -- no logos, just the window frame and the top of the steering wheel (could be done with just talking heads as well not in the cars).

Man #1: I helped hijack an airplane.

Woman #1: I helped blow up a night club.

Man #2: I was just driving…so what if it gets 11 miles to the gallon.

Woman #2: I gave money to a terrorist training camp in a foreign country…

Man #3: It makes me feel safe.

Woman #3: I helped our enemies develop weapons of mass destruction.

Man #4: I helped bankroll suicide bombers.

Woman #4: My kids think it's cool.

Man #5: I helped a bomber get a fake passport.

Man #1: A lot of my neighbors have them.

Woman #1: My life, my SUV.

TITLE CARD: WHAT IS YOUR SUV DOING TO THE WORLD?

VO: What am I supposed to drive?

TITLE CARD: HEY, DETROIT… AMERICA NEEDS HYBRID CARS NOW.

Parody #2

Shot of man at gas pump (sliver of SUV or not)

Cute kid VO: This is George.

Shot of ECU on gas pump -- the numbers spin round.

Cute kid VO: This is the gas that George bought for his SUV.

Shot of an executive walking down a city street (his face would be de-focused) or a limousine driving down a city street.

Cute kid VO: This is the oil company executive who sold the gas that George bought for his SUV.

Shot of a map of the Persian Gulf region.

Cute kid VO: This is the part of the world where the executive bought the oil that made the gas that George bought for his SUV.

Shot of terrorist training film footage, or still shots of the 19 hijackers…

Cute kid VO: And these are the terrorists bankrolled by many of the countries where the oil companies do business so that George can fill up his gas-guzzling SUV…

Super: Oil money supports some terrible things. If you drive a SUV, you might too.

What a crock

Seems the current bunch of "crossover" SUVs get about the same milage as their Minivan parents.
Why are these groups not bashing the Minivan owners?
What about the good old boys in their Pick-Ups??

I suppose someone should tell these "twits" that Canada is the second largest exporter of oil to the U.S. . Then again they probably wouldn't get it. They probably think Japan is the U.S.'s biggest trading partner too. :D
I have subsequently reviewed U.S. government data for 2001 and apparently Canada is the largest foreign supplier of petroleum products to the United States.

B.S.

Ms. Huffington and the rest of her hypocritical colleagues can kiss my a**. I bet she heats a 10,000 sq foot home and takes limos and private jets to get places. How much fuel does that burn?.

I agree that the SUV should not be singled out. Some Mini Van's and sedans get the same, if not worse mileage than the Pilot. Is this "profiling"??. Are these so-called do-gooders "profiling" us?. Don't they stand against "profiling" when it comes to ones race, religion??. But if you drive an SUV you support terrorism, regardless....I see.

It's hypocritical bastards like these that make me want to :30:
