Campaign ads that include gun violence
« on: June 21, 2022, 04:23:00 PM »
Gun-worshiping wingnuts are no longer happy pretending to shoot only Dems

https://www.nytimes.com/2022/06/20/us/politics/eric-greitens-rino-ad.html?campaign_id=9&emc=edit_nn_20220621&instance_id=64596&nl=the-morning&regi_id=108420427&segment_id=96324&te=1&user_id=d36dcf821462fdd16ec3636710a855fa

Eric Greitens, a Republican candidate for the United States Senate in Missouri, released a violent new political advertisement on Monday showing himself racking a shotgun and accompanying a team of men armed with assault rifles as they stormed — SWAT team-style — into a home in search of “RINOs,” or Republicans in name only.

“Join the MAGA crew,” Mr. Greitens, a former Navy SEAL, declares in the ad. “Get a RINO hunting permit. There’s no bagging limit, no tagging limit, and it doesn’t expire until we save our country.”

The ad by Mr. Greitens was just the latest but perhaps most menacing in a long line of Republican campaign ads featuring firearms and seeking to equate hard-core conservatism with the use of deadly weapons.


Don't like your political rival? Shoot him or her! Only in Gunmerica!
"We understand that for some reason, to people with money, to people who fund political campaigns, guns are more important than children. Today we stand for Lexi, and as her voice, we demand action."

-- Kimberly Rubio, whose daughter Lexi was among 19 schoolchildren slaughtered in Uvalde, Texas

The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

He ought to comfortably get the republican nomination.  Wonder if he skirts the constitution like Wisconsin’s republican senator?

No kidding. Starting this topic, at it in the Juneteenth thread AND trying to start something up in the NFL one too. All in the last half hour or so.

Then why did you focus specifically and exclusively on Juneteenth? And what troublemakers would those be, exactly?

But all that aside, I guess it's just yet one more of the million data points that says we need to address gun violence in this country.

Because Juneteenth celebrations were 1 or 2 days ago and many were shut down by gun violence and thus the subject seemed topical. While the 4th of July problems you cite were 350 days ago. I would think if you had a point to make, it wouldn't have taken you almost a year to get around to it.

Really helps our society when politicians publicly threaten to gun down those who disagree with them.

Also helps when others, rather than condemning the actions, do everything possible to point out totally unrelated events.

Especially considering a star college basketball player was tragically gunned down over the weekend.
