Those sick fucks have made a video that compares Obama’s daughters with gun safety in schools.
How fucking dumb and ignorant can you get? Well it backfired on their stupid asses as many people see it as disgusting and over the top. From Politico….a republican rag to boot:
The National Rifle Association on Tuesday released a controversial new ad that makes reference to President Barack Obama’s daughters — sparking outrage from critics who charged that the spot is over the line.
“Most Americans agree that a president’s children should not be used as pawns in a political fight,” White House press secretary Jay Carney said. “But to go so far as to make the safety of the president’s children the subject of an attack ad is repugnant and cowardly.”
“What’s wrong with these people, Mika? What’s wrong with these people?” Joe Scarborough, host of “Morning Joe,” asked co-host Mika Brzezinski in disbelief.
“They are out of step, out of the mainstream, totally out of sync with what’s going on in our society, and quite frankly after seeing that, I think some of the people who run that thing are sick,” Brzezinski said. “I really do. I think they are sick in the head.
“And I’m serious,” she continued. “I am embarrassed right now.”
Scarborough is a neocon. So if he feels the video was a fucked up piece of shit, you know it is. The only assholes it will appeal to are the extreme rightwing nutters. Thankfully, there are more normal people than there are rightwingers.
The idiots at the NRA are trying to say that Obama’s children get special treatment. Well, of course they do fer chrissakes, their father is the President and ALL Presidents before him, with school-age children, got the same treatment. It’s not rocket science for fucks sake.
I think it shows how desperate they are, and they should be.
And it’s not just the kids at Newtown School. Its the Aurora Theater deaths and the ones in Oregon. I could go on and on about all the massacres we have to endure in the last few years committed with huge 30-100 bullet drums and semi-automatic rifles but why bother because we all know about them. It’s about time something, anything is done to attempt to curb these massacres.
We out pace every industrial nation in the world when it comes to this shit, How do they think of our gun crazed nation? We should all be embarrassed. From a WaPo writeup on the subject:
One piece of this puzzle is the national rate of firearm-related murders, which is charted above. The United States has by far the highest per capita rate of all developed countries. According to data compiled by the United Nations, the United States has four times as many gun-related homicides per capita as do Turkey and Switzerland, which are tied for third. The U.S. gun murder rate is about 20 times the average for all other countries on this chart. That means that Americans are 20 times as likely to be killed by a gun than is someone from another developed country.
