Skip to comments.Video: NRA's 'Stand and Fight,' targets Malia and Sasha Obama (Uh, no it doesn't)
Posted on 01/17/2013 12:00:10 AM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
The NRA released on Tuesday an ad that accuses Obama of being an "elitist hypocrite," because he provides armed protection for his children but insists that the nation's schools remain "gun-free zones."
The video is part of the NRA's offensive dubbed "Stand and fight," in response to its anticipation of Obama's announcement of stricter gun control measures. According to Boston.com, the 35-second video posted to YouTube by user HotWeirdNews, also appeared on the NRA's website on Tuesday. However, the video was removed from the NRA's website by Wednesday morning. The ad begins with a shot of a school, the American flag and a voice-over, saying "Are the president's kids more important than yours?" The narrator continues: "Then why is he skeptical about putting armed security in our schools when his kids are protected by armed guards at their schools?" The ad then shows images featuring President Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Senator Dianne Feinstein, while the narrator says: "Mr Obama demands the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes. But he's just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to a fair share of security." It ends with the argument that the "elitist hypocrites" (aka Obama, Biden, Bloomberg and Feinstein) are providing "protection for their kids, but gun-free zones for ours." Media reactions Boston.com reports that the White House has responded to the NRA video, describing it as "repugnant and cowardly." The majority of comments on YouTube are critical of the ad, pointing out that Malia and Sasha, being children of the president, are vulnerable....

The Obamas use their own kids all the time, in speeches and even campaign ads. So the libs can shove it. They have constantly used their daughters to further their own points and propaganda.
Good rant! Couldn’t have said it better.
Look, people. There is a whole contingent out there who are gonna give gunowners AND the NRA grief. Consider the source/s. You have the leftists who just hate everything and everyone that dares to want to breathe free air. THEY want to control you.
You have slum dwellers who mostly HAVE illegal guns who will insult you unto eternity just because they don’t like you...and might even shoot you for the same reason.
And there are the illegals who ALSO have guns that are illegal, but SOME of them can read so they will insult you as well as kill you.
Any of them will sell you drugs. Many of them think rape is a right. Many of them think they have a right to what YOU own and will rob you to get it...with or without a gun.
NONE of them will be affected by what obama did today or any gun laws that might come down the pike tomorrow. Haters gonna hate. Bad guys gonna be bad.
I will do whatever it takes to see that not a damn one of them messes with my life or my child’s life and if that is in any way misunderstood, try me.
Anyone here think obama’s kids are better than mine? Than YOURS?
Nope. Didn’t think so.
Political polling is nothing more than propaganda. It’s very easy to manipulate polling to get the results a pollster wants. Most Freepers know that quite well.
The Extremist Left Wing is saying that some are more equal than others...
Confucius say man who take gun receive bullet.
Why thats a perfect description of our Kenyan in chief, now isnt it?"Repugnant and cowardly?"
Its also, by no coincidence, a perfect description of the Wolf! crying industry that is wire service journalism, known under the alias mainstream media. Just as To a hammer, everything looks like a nail, to a reporter every sheep looks like a wolf. In fact, calling journalism "the Wolf!" crying industry understates the case, because of journalisms Man Bites Dog, not Dog Bites Man rule, which expresses journalism's preference for the unusual/atypical.
Under that principle, journalism would rather decry a wolf which is apparently actually a sheep than to report the presence of a an actual menace. A phenomenon which is on full display in the persecution of George Zimmerman, as it was in the case of the transparent Duke Lacrosse rape hoax. Even as, today, the evil we are told to hate are the hundreds of millions of insurance policies against violence known as privately owned guns.
And then we wonder why journalists are in the pocket of Democrats - for them both, every tragic aspect of the human condition is a problem to be solved by a Gordian knot cutting solution portending worse misery than the original complaint. Democrats have no principle other than going along and getting along journalists. "Surprise, surprise, journalists promote Democrats and give them positive labels - they started calling Democrats liberal in the 1920s, when liberal was what all traditional Americans understood themselves to be - and what socialists will never be. Before that, socialists were called progressive, because progress of, by, and for the American people is the pride of the success of the American experiment. Journalists also call socialists moderate or centrist, too - and moderation is classical virtue.
Its why liberalism is, as Rush puts it, a gutless choice. Repugnant and cowardly.
You’re the one who needs to check the polls again. There have been two polls showing a majority (51%) oppose an assault weapons ban, with like 44% supporting. This was after Newtown. The AP poll is rigged with the addition of “military-style” in their question.
Further, Gallup in late December 2012 showed a record percentage of Americans (74%) opposed to a ban on handguns.
Once again, doesn’t matter what you or I think. How is it playing with the country? Did it help or hurt the NRA brand? Watch the polling numbers over next two weeks and you will have your answer.
The elitist right isn't terribly happy, either...
BO loves using children as props.
I’d say stay away from his kids. I can see Obama getting on his pedestal and saying how dare they bring his children into this issue and the public will side with him and winning it in the public’s eyes on emotion alone.. I’d say the NRA would do better to focus on historical events with tyrants that uasarmed their citizens and the end results. Just my thoughts.
The ad didn’t focus on his kids. It focused on HIS HYPOCRICY.
“He attacks my kids 6 ways from sunday, and im supposed to get a case of the fainting vapors over the truth being told about his?”
Excellent point. Besides this safety issue, your kids, and your kids’ kids, will be paying (literally) for Hussein’s actions throughout their entire lives.
“The ad pisses off the right people, so good job.”
That’s what I think, too. If a short statement about his kids having more value than other people’s kids will make a few people sit up and take notice, then good!
About time they used my money for something useful...
No. The ad was correct. Hypocrisy is hypocrisy. - If you DARE criticize this President, or any of his henchmen; you are going to get “beat up” by a fawning mainstream media. A media that has become just a useful tool for the Democrat Party. - Meantime, the Tea Party, the NRA, and anyone else who challenges King Obama will dutifully be “targeted” and “ridiculed” by the MSM until they “go away”. . and I’m no NRA person. I shoot like you’d imagine a “Twinkie” shooting; mostly hitting my own foot!
