God Made a Factory Farmer

Ok, I didn’t plan to go too crazy on the Dodge ad, but this was too hilarious to resist. The web site Funny or Die put out this parody (much more accurate than the original if you ask me….) called “God Made a Factory Farmer.” This is a must watch, so if the video doesn’t display for you, click here.

Next American City also did a follow-up ad called “God Created Transit”. It’s not as gut-busting funny (and also not from a comedy web site) but still worth watching. If the video doesn’t display, click here

    The scenes where a leering voice mocks as a farmer prays were disgusting. Prayer and rural churches hold great significance for farmers. Out in rural America, as Drought 2012 went on, farmers did indeed kneel in prayer for rain, water for crops, wells for their cows and their own families.
    And, for the family farm movement, prayer and rural churches hold great significance. Rural church leaders marched with family farmers in many demonstrations, they are there to console at times of farmer suicide and despair. Rural churches have often thrown their doors open to family farm groups as we seek to be heard.
    This spoof made it more difficult for us to be heard, marginalized us even more. We don’t even have a farm bill at this point. Most of us are proceeding in financial uncertainty not knowing what the farm bill will bring.
    And, so, the leering voice over a farmer knelt in prayer was hurtful to so many. I don’t know if you or your readers will get this, but the farmers wanted you to know.
