So it’s not surprising then that they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.a response from the NRA was inevitable. Here is one of the four ads:
- The ad features a blonde-haired, blue-eyed white man talking about how much he charishes his own upbringing and opposes Obama. The media / left will undoubtedly denouce this as racist. Will that opinon matter to the target audience? I doubt it.
- The best line of the ad is "I'm not bitter. I'm blessed." I wasn't quite sure how they were going to turn the bitter quote around but it was done masterfully. Just from reading reactions, you can tell that short quote resonates.
- They really need better checking at the NRA. Twice, a house is pictured with an American flag hanging vertically. In both cases, the flag is hanging backwards. Seriously? No one from the NRA involved in the production of this video knows the rules for displaying the U.S. flag? (See rule #8.) Embarrassing.
