On Monday, the civil rights organization named after the Martin Luther King Jr. speech used in the universally reviled Dodge Super Bowl commercial noted a strange irony about the speech that was conveniently cut from the ad.

In an official statement, the Drum Major Institute pointed out that when King gave “the Drum Major Instinct” speech on February 4, 1968, a portion of the text was devoted to discussing the exploitive nature of advertisers.

“In this, one of the last sermons of his life, Dr. King talked about both the virtues and evils of the basically instinct all people possess to be ‘drum majors,’” writes the Institute’s co founder, William B. Wachtsl. ”In a twist of irony, one of the specific evils Dr. King condemned was the exploitation of the drum major instinct by advertisers, particularly car advertisers.”

The Dodge Ram commercial features an excerpt of King’s speech, set to the backdrop of hardworking Americans doing hard-working American things: operating a crane, rustling cattle, driving a truck through the mud.

A main message of the speech is that you should live the way you want to be remembered. For Dr. King, that meant a commitment to justice, peace and servant leadership.

A portion of “The Drum Major Instinct” discusses how advertising panders to our egos, with King specifically mentioning car advertising.

“In order to be a man of distinction, you must drink this whiskey,” King says. “In order to make your neighbors envious, you must drive this type of car.”

In the speech, Dr. King warned against succumbing to the pressures of advertising, which he saw as a means of social control and a disruption to communal living. “Do you ever see people buy cars that they can’t even begin to buy in terms of income?” he says. “You’ve seen people riding around in Cadillacs and Chryslers who don’t even earn enough to have a good Model-T Ford. But it feeds the repressed ego.”

The commercial, seen as utterly tone deaf, was quickly panned online. One YouTube user who noticed the hypocrisy edited the original ad so that the excerpt played from Dr. King’s speech is the one that explicitly criticizes advertising.

The ad was lambasted on Twitter Sunday as a disrespectful marketing maneuver. Many people, including George Wallace, pointed out the absurdity of using an MLK speech to sell trucks by making up quotes, or imagining other social justice-themed advertising campaigns.

Some pointed out the parallels to the ill-advised Pepsi ad that aired last year, featuring attractive people using soda to defuse tension between militarized police and happy protesters.

Others, like Minnesota Representative Keith Ellison, dispensed with humor and called out Dodge for exploiting the legacy of Dr. King.

Some people pointed out the particular irony of airing this commercial during an NFL season where President Donald Trump criticized NFL players for protesting police brutality by taking a knee during the national anthem, and while many think Colin Kaepernick has effectively been barred from the league because of his activism.

Matt Groening has always been ahead of his time. All it takes is a glance at his résumé — The Simpsons and Futurama, to name two of his works — to recognize that he has serious staying power and largely progressive views (The Problem with Apu aside). On both The Simpsons and Futurama, it’s the women who kick ass both mentally and physically, while all the male characters are either inept, lazy, or morally bankrupt.

Computers are getting smaller and faster, and while that’s broadly a good thing, I can’t help but look at all the sleek new laptops coming out and screaming into the thundery sky “WHERE ARE ALL THE USB OUTLETS I HAVE GADGETS TO CONNECT!” This solves that very specific problem for me, and will for you too.

Monday evening, conspiracy theorist Alex Jones begged Donald Trump to come to his rescue, after a slew of large tech companies began to ban the personality from their platforms based on their hate speech policies. Directly appealing to Trump, Jones asked him on air to “make the censorship the big issue” before the midterms, or risk losing the country.

The InfoWars app, still allowed in the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store, is doing better than ever, despite efforts from large tech companies including Apple, YouTube, Facebook, and Spotify to stymie the effects of content from conspiracy theorist Alex Jones. By Wednesday, just two days after each company took their most decisive actions against InfoWars, the InfoWars Official app had shot from 47th to 3rd in the News app category of the Apple App Store.

The CW announced Tuesday that Orange Is the New Black’s Ruby Rose will play Batwoman in the first green lit lesbian superhero TV series.
