NRA TV Ad: Obama ‘Elitist Hypocrite’ Because His Daughters Have Armed Guards
TPM ^ | January 15, 2013 | Evan McMorris-Santoro

Posted on 01/16/2013 4:56:44 AM PST by Daffynition

The National Rifle Association is amping up the political rhetoric in advance of President Obama's gun violence prevention announcement scheduled for Wednesday. On Tuesday, the NRA posted a video on its website accusing the president of being "an elitist hypocrite" because his daughters have armed guards at school. CNN reported Tuesday night that the video "is running on the Sportsman Channel, a cable network focused on outdoors programming such as hunting and fishing."

Video ad at source.

Great ad!

This is a *teachable moment* for shooting sports. We need more of the type of ad, that addresses the lives that were saved by gun owners [in their own words] protecting their family/property.

Damn it, why can't the Republican leadership fight like this? The truth is a powerful weapon, when it's used. Their cowardice makes me ill.

Perfect!

I shouted that mantra at the TV several times last night.

“Then take the guards away from YOUR daughter’s school!”

I no longer consider Repubs cowards. Resounding silence on the part of their leadership leaves little doubt they’ve turned against us.

Look for folks to simply do a new thing called “civil disobedience”.

Pretty cheap looking ad, but it did brighten my breakfast today when that time of day TV is pretty bleak.

The most entertaining part was watching Joe and Mika having absolute fits about it this Morning really had me laughing,.both of them for over week been demanding that the GOP sign onto gun control, so this sent them into an absolute tizzy. They even played it twice.

Joe : I am ashamed for this nation after that ad”
Joe :”The NRA is dead. They own members disagree with them, Its over. ”
JOE :”They turned Os kids into targets”

Better yet

Mika :”Ok I have tried to understand those with 2nd amendment concerns. I have tried to understand why they are scared and buying guns frantically. But now I dont care after this. I dont care what they think anymore. This is the end. No more trying to understand. ”

LOL

Mika was demanding national gun control when she was ‘trying to understand’ so who cares?

Hypocrisy is rampant.

I am sure Pelosi and Boehner have body guards.

Celebretards like michael moore and rosie o’donnel have armed body guards

Look at Cuomo and Bloomberg in NY. Both have armed guards protecting them, but they seek to deny the same right to non-politically connected citizens.

This thread has just added to the FreeRepublic "bang list" (firearms interest list) by adding the keyword "banglist".

Any time a firearms-related thread is created on FreeRepublic, please be sure to add the "banglist" keyword to it so that interested FReepers don't miss it. Just a suggestion.

The problem is, only people who are already disposed to being pro-gun/conservative have a problem with this hypocrisy.

Leftists are inherently elitists, and believe it’s perfectly OK with them to have a double standard.

********************************************************
Every time these brain dead politicians/celebrities open their mouth about gun control, someone should challenge them with: YOU and YOUR GUARDS FIRST!!!!

Often violence involving guns, is gang/criminal related, and usually involves breaking the current laws anyway. Yet the proposals say nothing about cracking down on gangs, drug dealers, and felons who possess guns illegally.

No, they want to take them away from law abiding citizens. Meanwhile, this Administration made sure the Drug Cartels got plenty of fully automatic assault/military weapons.

Anyone serious about preventing gun violence would be focusing on the criminal element, and enforcing current laws, instead of making up new laws which will only impact law abiding citizens anyway.

Does anybody really believe that the criminals are going to just turn in their guns because a law is passed? Any politician that believes this should be in the loony bin, due to no understanding of reality; they sure as h#ll shouldn't be allowed to make laws.

These pos need Alynski tactics thrown in their face every time they open their mouth. Truly their proposals for gun control are ridiculous and should be ridiculed.

Nailed it. Inherently elitist is precisely right. I've observed a curious little brain stutter on their part when pointing this out. They instinctively know it's hypocrisy, but refuse to acknowledge it. They simply blink, and bleat “some animals are more equal than others.”

POLITICAL THEATER OF THE ABSURD Obama wants extensive background checks and registration for gun ownership - but anybody who wants to, can walk in and vote---legal or not. (And forget extensive background checks for presidential candidates, too.)

Obama and his crew of Chicago mobsters can't find 10 million illegal aliens hiding in plain sight, yet they plan to round up 300+ million firearms.

How dumb is that?

==================================================

Forget about publishing names/addresses of citizens with legal gun pernmits.

Americans demand to know the names/addresses of federal/state/and local politicans with gun permits.

Point of Order, Mr. LaPierre....

People who watch The Sportsman’s Channel ALREADY KNOW AND BELIEVE THIS!

Your ad needs to be running on CNN, TBS, Lifetime, A&E, and all other channels where people who are CLUELESS might have a chance of seeing it.

They instinctively know it's hypocrisy, but refuse to acknowledge it.

They even acknowledge it, and know that it's common understanding that such a situation is wrong, but, their elitism kicks in and their ideology says it's proper and necessary for there to be different rules for different classes of people.

It has to be really psychologically difficult to be a leftist. God has "written His law on their hearts", but their "reason" has told them to disregard this natural understanding of what is righteous and what is wicked.

Unfortunately, I don't think so. Did you see the comments on the linked page? People who think guns are the problem will think it's OK to make a distinction between the President's daughters and yours.

They're correct on one point - the President's daughters would be a target for more intentional crimes than your children would be. But they miss the point that having a gun handy is the only solution when the criminal is unstable and not planning an intentional crime.

Liberals know that guns in the hands of honest people are to protect. They know that taking guns away from honest, law-abiding people and deliberately leaving them in the hands of violent criminals will cause more honest people to be killed.
They know, and are happy that way.

None more hypocritical than Obama. Remember this?

“We’ve got to have a civilian national security force (which answers to me) that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded as the military.” - candidate Barack Obama on his plans for America.

“Damn it, why can't the Republican leadership fight like this?”

Because their ethics have been totally compromized..the longer their in washington the more likely the chances are they got caught taking a bribe or banging a page in the closet or maybe with a hooker some were downtown...If the other party knows about it then that's what those shiite birds call political leverage...It's what we call blackmail..the point is, when they do things that we know isn't right, when they stand in opposition to, or in support of what what makes no sense to us, it's because they can't do otherwise...Lest we find out what they are and remove them from office...
Then you take a someone like barney frank..Every knows what a POS that subhuman is, so there is nothing you can get on him that makes any difference at all...Most of use want our leaders to have the moral high-ground..But you can always find barney with the filth in the gutter...
Sometimes I think term limits might make sense...

It seems we’ve allowed a ruling class to form... and like blowhard elites the world over they’ve spent a good deal of time passing laws that make it difficult to get them our of office. Now elites want to start chipping away at the Bill of Rights and the Constitution. That paper is what stands between them and uncontested power... we know what they are...
