|Man fired for refusing to wear sticker|
Slight difference there. Once is objectively an identifying mark for a group, and the other is a random number with no intentional significance except for this guys irrational fears.
It's like saying that being sorted by alphabetical order is as offensive as being sorted by race. I don't care if you think that alphabetization is the tool of the devil, it's a subjective fear, not a deliberate stigmatization.
|Barbie: Life in the Dreamhouse - Pet Peeve|
She's off at a fashion show, weren't you paying attention?
I know the 'beard' comment had to be a set-up, but whatever, I'm lazy and I'll take it.
|Captain America: The First Avenger title sequence|
Stanley: The montage of the Captain and his squad fighting Nazi military bases (albeit Hydra ones), seems to be one of people's favorite scenes. Similarly the action scene where Iron Man takes down conventional terrorists and military forces is more exciting than the robot battles that follow.
That said, the main problem is what takemyfood referred to. Both characters are strongly motivated in pursuit of a goal in the first 2/3 of the movie that relates to character development, and then a villain comes along to distract them from that goal. It's like if we spent most of the Spiderman movie watching Peter track down his uncle's killer, then just when he'd found him, Doc Oc shows up to pick a fight and end the movie.
|Captain America: The First Avenger title sequence|
Same thing happened in the Iron Man movie. Someone had the sense to let the characters breathe so the audience could learn their motivations and care about them. Then there's a kickass scene where the hero goes into the real world battlefield to use their power to do the things which actually motivated them (disarming terrorists/winning World War II).
At which point someone realized "Oh crap, we're most of the way through the movie and the heroes are fighting real world conflicts essential to their character and backstory instead of CGI monsters. Quick, abandon the other stuff and throw in Warmonger/Red Skull. Then instead bringing closure to the story use the ending to set up the next Marvel movie."

|Humility - Carl Sagan|
Because the very first words of the video make a mockery of theism?
Carl didn't call himself atheist because to the people he was trying to reach, it implied absolute certainty, immorality and opposition to any form of spirituality. But Carl didn't believe in any gods. He saw the world as it was, and said 'let's not pretend our myths should replace our observations'. His wife can now promotes that same message, while calling herself atheist.
Thanks to Carl, each generation has an easier time saying "I appreciate the complexity and beauty of existence and seek to understand it, trying not to hide it by plastering over my own cultural prejudices." That shouldn't be an atheist message. It's a human message. But it's one all theistic religions are inherently opposed to.
|Seth Macfarlane's Ted (2012)|
For whatever reason, American Dad's episodes on religion tend to be their best, while Family Guy gets their most humorless and preachy.
I thought the "white trash name" joke was genuinely funny. Too bad everything else in the trailer looks like crap where the only joke is that something cute is doing something inappropriate. How original.
|WHAR JESUS WHAR?|
Because as Jesus said to the money-lenders in the Temple:
"It is easier to get a camel through the eye of a needle, than it is to pass up my great selection of merchandise. For when you pray, do not go into your room and close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Instead make sure to bling that shit out on your clothing and cars. Just like your local radio station, I reward people wearing my logo. Remember, if you ever see a store or government institution not selling my stuff, complain until they do."
|That's My Boy trailer|
It's like they tried to make Big Daddy 2, but accidentally grabbed the cameras that film in Retard-O-Vision.
|Mitt Romney tells a funny story about his dad.|
There's no chance of winning without getting the base mobilized, which Santorum is doing, and Romney can't. If it were just Romney, none of their core voters would have been attending those partisan rallies and speeches about how Obama is Hitler who wants to put the Muslims in charge so he can wipe out Christianity. Glenn Beck used to do it, but he fizzled out.
As soon as the convention is done, they'll shift to anti-Obama full-time, and Republican voters will line up behind Romney just like they did the even more liberal John McCain. The tea party isn't really about voting for things or people, it's about voting against the change that scares them so much.
Aside from identifying the figurehead of Iran as it's leader, the ad is all true.
Of course, that'll also all be true under Republicans, since "freedom of religion under attack" to them means "religions other than the far-right American rewrite of Christianity are still allowed to exist". And the rest is inevitable, however much they'd like to build a time-machine to the 50s. The baby boomers are causing the problem, and demanding others solve and pay for the solution.
|Man Pulls a Gun On A News Reporter|
She's just lucky she wasn't wearing a hoodie, or he would have been justified in defending himself with that gun.
|Best Date Ever|
Oh, I love going to see him. He's a great listener, has sick abs, and you should see the way he's hung.
Sometimes I feel like he's a bit judgmental though. He never says anything, but still.
Sorry, but by naming the ducks something species appropriate and by giving the villain a motivation that could conceivably put him into conflict with the protagonists, you've made two more logical connections than this cartoon did.
Drink some turpentine and try again.
|Spitting Image - Atheist Tabernacle Choir|
Some guy was getting headlines recently for proposing an atheist church and atheist monuments to be build in London. Then getting huffy when the other atheists all laughed at him.
He'd have been better off proposing this instead.
|Piranha 3DD - Trailer|
|Richard Dawkins speaks with a former Jew who is now an extremist Muslim|
It's not true that are both trying to get rid of "people whose worldviews are different".
One is trying to get rid of one particular worldview through reasoned if sometimes impolite arguments and debates.
The other is actually willing to get rid of the people, in order to get rid of other worldviews. It doesn't matter that lots of people think both are radical, they still aren't equivalent.

In other words, when Futurama referenced this episode, they were actually less goofy.
