I was up very late last night and woke up to Morning Joe going absolutely apoplectic (I believe the scientific term is “Batshit Crazy”) over the following ad:
The Democrats won an election by pushing the class warfare line, the 1% line, the idea that Mitt Romney was an elite that didn’t care about you and your families. It was a sell that worked with low information voters.
Now you have the same message being played by the NRA to the same voters. It’s the class warfare argument, the 1%, the argument that the President and the rich Washington elites don’t care about your families as long as their own kids are safe.
The left hates this argument, they just used it and know it works.
I hope they play this ad every single day, I think it would be even more effective on Black & Hispanic TV considering how violence has been rampant, and ignored by the same elites that are pushing laws that will not do a thing to make their neighborhoods safer.
The left wanted to play class warfare, fine, our turn.
I’ll give the last word to Robert Stacy McCain
NRA “fringe”? More than 4 milllion members, added 250K members in past month. @joenbc audience? 565,000. Math is hard!
