Mobile Media Project - Bumper Sticker Campaign Update
4-6-07 | Bob J

Posted on 04/06/2007 11:27:19 AM PDT by Bob J

Thank you to everyone who helped come up with the content ideas for the proposed nationwide outdoor media campaign. Hundreds of ideas were created which needed to be trimmed down to a dozen or so that captured the essence of the individual concepts.

The concepts were;

1. Rephrase the debate from "withdrawal" to "retreat and surrender".
2. Losing in Iraq will only bring more danger to our doorsteps.
3. Surrender is not an American virtue.
4. Let our soldiers finish their job.

Here is what we came up with.

Withdrawal is Retreat
Retreat is Surrender

NO SURRENDER
To Terrorism

A Retreat in Iraq is
A Victory for Terror

Retreating Abroad Won’t
Guarantee Peace at Home

Retreat and Surrender…
Not an American Tradition

[ ] Fight Terrorists Here
[X] Fight Terrorists There

No Victory in Iraq
No Peace in America

Iraq Retreat = 911 Repeat

Terrorists Want
Hippies Dead Too

We Won the War
Let’s Complete the Peace

Prevent Global Warming
Defeat Jihad Abroad

Jobs Not Finished
‘til Jihad is Well Done

Who wants to waste time convincing libs of anything?

It’s funny that you would automatically think this effort would be targeted at libs. This FR activism focus on left wing loonies has got to change. It’s ineffective and time consuming.

I saved to Word the great majority of these ideas.
Many have already been hand painted onto plywood signs.
These will provide the messages , as our folks stand around with lots of U.S. flags on the roadside and wave at passing cars .
Try this activity in your town good people .
It’s a fun and very necessary in these times we live in.

Personally, I think many of these sayings would be much more effective on passersby at rallies and protests. Unfortunately, too many that are used now are directed at slapping libs (satisfying but ineffective) or refer to supporting troops which has been turned around by the leftists with their “Yes, Support by bringing them home”.

Gotta stay two steps ahead the left.

Yep...
Our rally is about supporting the troops
(and challenging Islam)

I painted this sign on a 2’x3’ piece of gloss white painted ply yesterday :

” First Win the War !
Then
Bring Our Hero’s Home “

in red and blue lettering .

Can’t wait to show it !

Bring them home now
is a big slogan with the anti’s around here .
(brainless twits)

“Surrender is not an American virtue”


BobJ,

Pause and think type of message. It does not create an instant defensive wall response. Logic has you thinking... hmmmm ...Yes, I agree with that BS.

Terrorists Want
Hippies Dead Too

I'd substitute something else for "hippies" - they may not get the dated reference and they don't think of themselves as "hippies" anymore, and a lot of young ones never were. "Progressives" or "liberals" or "Democrats" would do better, IMO.

Retreat and Surrender…
Not an American Tradition

"Tradition" is not that important or relevant in matters of life and death... I think better would be something like "Never brought peace, only defeat"

We Won the War
Let’s Complete the Peace

"Complete" may not fit well, it's still about military action and "winning" or "losing" in people's minds, so "Let's help win the Peace" could be better...

All IMHO.

“Unfortunately, most libs believe in Peace at ANY price.”

Short of their own deaths, of course.

How about, “Surrender to evil means death. Yours too.”

I think the slogan in posting #35 is a good one to include in the choices (but maybe clarify who “them” is—even if that is really bad English on my part). Please continue to include me on this ping list, especially when they become available for sale!

Well, hippies is funny and it’s supposed to be a funny BS. It is not directed at them.

2. Hmmm.

3. I struggled over that as well. At first I had “finish”. The point being stressed is that the job isn’t finished until we have peace in Iraq. Maybe..

Winning the War = 1/2
Winning the Peace = 1/2

It is not directed at them.

I thought it was meant to be funny as well as thought-provokimg and hitting response to their BSs, at least to reach those "in the middle" who are capable of thinking. Nobody cares about hippies anymore, so the reference maybe "lost in translation" and message wasted...

Let me clarify (2). The "progressives", if anything, are anti-"tradition"... "Tradition" to them is not something to be valued, more to the point - it is to be discarded and/or impugned. To those "in the middle" who will see the sticker, it's not inspiring or consequential or even important. "Never brought peace" or something similar to that shows the result or consequences of "Retreat and Surrender…

Re (3), I think your original phrase, stating that "We Won the war", is much better in that it does show a "completion" of the "war" phase (we already won), because "Winning the War = 1/2" may imply that we haven't yet, or at least doesn't state that this part of the job is finished. And, of course, "winning the peace" takes a lot longer than 1/2 of the time of the whole operation, as is usually with the maintenance of the project after finishing the project itself. So you'd want to put emphasis on the second part of the job ("winning the peace") not being finished, while leaving no uncertainty about the first one ("winning the war") Also, one reason I deliberately put in "help" was to show that we are not alone and not even primary force in "winning the peace"... but still making sure that it requires military presence and/or action, hence "win" seems better suited for the second part (the peace) than original "complete" or "finish".

Hopefully, this helped clarify my thought process on these instead of making it more obscure. Or, maybe, I am too darn nitpicking today. :~)

When I said directed at them, I meant liberals. I think I like “We Won the War, Now Let’s Win the Peace” some. But I wanted to make the point that ousting Saddam was only half the job. Pulling out now leaves the job unfinished.
