Fox News/AP: Marines Barred From Filming Commercial on Streets of San Francisco

The Silent Drill Platoon of the U.S. Marine Corps wasn't allowed to be filmed Sept. 11 on California Street for a segment of its new advertising campaign, a Marine spokesman told FOXNews.com.

Instead, the elite group took its austere display to the Golden Gate National Recreation Area for the final segment of its "America's Marines" TV commercial. The group is on a two-month nationwide tour as part of the campaign.

Stefanie Coyote, the executive director of the San Francisco Film Commission, the group responsible for issuing film permits, was unavailable for comment Tuesday.

Coyote told KGO-TV that "traffic control was the issue."

Of course.

The film commission did allow the Marines' production unit to film the street without Marines. They'll be superimposed in the spot, KGO-TV reports.

Her office referred calls to San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom's press office.

"The Marines were not denied a permit to film in San Francisco," said Nathan Ballard, director of communications for the mayor, adding, "we really appreciate their business and they're invited back anytime."

If you believe that, I have some Florida swampland you might like...

First of all, the word is SEX, not GENDER. If you are ever tempted to use the word GENDER, don't. The word is SEX! SEX! SEX! SEX! For example: "My sex is male." is correct. "My gender is male." means nothing. Look it up. What kind of sick neo-Puritan nonsense is this? Idiot left-fascists, get your blood-soaked paws off the English language. Hence I am choosing "male" under protest.
