New gun control ad: This congressman kinda sorta killed those children in Newtown

posted at 6:21 pm on January 17, 2013 by Allahpundit

Via Business Insider, a reminder from the left that if you’re associated with the NRA, you might as well have had your finger on the trigger of Adam Lanza’s gun. I like this ad, partly because it superbly reflects how dumb, nasty, and dishonest the national “debate” over gun control is and partly because it’s so counterproductive for Democrats. Why counterproductive, apart from the fact that it more or less equates passionate support for gun rights with mass murder? (Fun footnote: Even now, the NRA polls better nationally than the entertainment industry does.) Because the congressman targeted here is a Democrat. And not just any Democrat but a Democrat who comes from a district in Georgia that’s much more conservative now, after redistricting, than it was in 2010. The plan here seems to be to ignite a primary challenge from the left, which would, if successful, paradoxically make things much easier for the GOP in the general election. Or maybe there is no plan; maybe this is pure punishment for Barrow daring to accept an endorsement from the root of all evil, even though he said yesterday that he supports stricter enforcement of existing gun laws and more security in schools. If he loses in the primary and the seat turns red, that just serves him right for being such a devout fan of child murder. Keep up the good work, gun-control fans.

And like I said, not just dumb and nasty, but dishonest:

Here’s the problem: The CSGV has done some selective editing in its video. In its version of the ad, Barrow displays a pistol and says:

“Long before I was born, my grandfather used this little Smith & Wesson here….”

It cuts the Augusta congressman off there. How did Barrow finish the sentence in the original, and what did the CSGV choose to omit? This:

”…to help stop a lynching.”

Yeah, turns out sometimes guns can be used for good. Note to gun-rights supporters: If you were holding anything back in your messaging, this ad is your green light from the left to get as vicious and emotionally manipulative as you can. Democrats and, er, Chris Christie are squealing over that NRA ad about school security for Obama’s kids, but that’s small potatoes. There are a good half-dozen ads, I’d imagine, that can be mined from interviews with this woman and people like her about gun-grabbers leaving women more vulnerable to rape. Progressives have done America a service by letting voters know that John Barrow is pro-murder; it’s only right to build on that public awareness by letting them know that most Democrats are pro-rape. If this “debate” is going to involve smears like this, then let the smears fly.

Exit quotation: “Part of the gun lobby’s momentum is due to the NRA, which remains broadly popular despite the media’s mockery of the organization’s response to the Newtown shooting. Forty-eight percent of respondents said they agreed with the NRA’s position on guns, compared to 42% who disagreed.”

Liberals have no problem hiding behind children who survive their mother’s whims.

I suspect its a pressure tactic and a shot across the bow of other congressmen from conservative areas who might not be inclined to support gun control. In others words, they will burn your political house down if you don’t step into line.

sharrukin on January 17, 2013 at 6:26 PM

Cutting out the rest of the sentence about using the gun to stop a lynching is so low, but not surprising with the left. And, as an aside, your post, Allahpundit, is so well written, with just the right mix of documented facts and searing commentary. Glad to see you have your mojo back. You seemed a little down, understandably, post election.

Elapsed Journalist on January 17, 2013 at 6:39 PM

Republican leadership still believe they are in the old days of “statesmanship.” Apparently they didn’t get the memo that those days were history back in the 90s, as they continue to walk on egg shells with democrats.

Download the only hit Carl Douglas ever had and start getting jiggy with it, Boehner.

Democrats are sharting on your leg as you delicately describe what flatulence is in church.

BruthaMan on January 17, 2013 at 6:39 PM

Gun control advocates want your children dead if it means disarming law abiding citizens. No pile of dead Americans is too high for Democrats to climb to destroy the Constitution.

“Coalition to Stop Gun Violence”?

O_o

So when do they open an office in Chicago, Illinois, the poster child for liberal gun control?

Bishop on January 17, 2013 at 6:40 PM

*whips out drum* False guilt. Progressives operate on false guilt.

If you are a supporter of the second amendment, you share the blame for the deaths of those children. The NRA is responsible for school shootings — they should feel bad about themselves. This is the argument all day, every day.

”…to help stop a lynching.”

Resist did a thing that targets that race aside pretty tightly: Gun Control Is Quintessentially Anti-American And Racist.

You don’t really trust the grabbers at their word, do you? That would be like putting Dante in charge of national security. Supremely stupid.

Which is also a good way of describing any anti-Constitution group who thinks that a guy who just won an election based partly on showing off his firearms and proudly pointing out his NRA endorsement is vulnerable on the issue. In Georgia. Twenty-two months before the next election. I’ll be perfectly happy with these people buying ad time and wasting their money.

Next up- I think we collectively should start working on getting tax exempt status revoked for these hate groups including Sarah and Jim Brady’s mafia. Why should a group advocating against the Second Amendment get tax breaks? That’s like making contributions to the KKK deductible.

He is feeling right now high on his own power, and he is pushing on every front, on guns,” Cruz said. “And I think it’s really sad to see the president of the United States exploiting the murder of children and using it to push his own extreme, anti-gun agenda. I think what the president is proposing and the gun control proposals that are coming from Democrats in the Senate are, number one, unconstitutional, and number two, they don’t work. They’re bad policy.”

Not the only dishonest thing in that propaganda piece. Note during the voiceover about the shooting, they show a fully automatic weapon at 0:24. The perp didn’t have a full auto, he didn’t need one since he knew there would be no armed resistance once he was in the school. These propagandists make the Soviet propagandists look honest. This isn’t about guns, it’s about control — their control of a country of unarmed peasants.

No police report, but Home Depot’s insurance investigated and that went as expected – nowhere.

I’d have probably received a ticket for calling police over something like this – they have more important things to do in Dallas than investigate door dings.

“Gloves off” is misleading. The Left doesn’t own gloves, and the Right sleeps with its own on.

This is merely more of the same, a “same” which the GOP seems willing to let pulverize them into oblivion.

He would never have been re-elected if he wasn’t a Blue Dog and his district didn’t include parts of Savannah and Augusta. Our former rep was Jack Kingston, who is very conservative. Barrow talks a good game and offers all kinds of goodies to the constituents. We haven’t been able to find a good candidate to run against him, but there is no way anyone left of him would get elected here.

Because the congressman targeted here is a Democrat. And not just any Democrat but a Democrat who comes from a district in Georgia that’s much more conservative now, after redistricting, than it was in 2010.

True enough AP. However, I’m with you on why they are targeting one of their own. Barrow is one of the few blue dogs left and they voted with Pelosi in high percentages! Maybe they want a farther leftist in. He was a good little soldier tho, along with a couple of the other GA blue dogs. Of course when it came time to vote, Pelosi had them take turns voting yes, LOL

I couldn’t find any contribution to Barrow from the NRA but under 5,000, which was an outside donation.

I agree with Allah to let the smears fly. The dems want to say that support for gun rights means you want to murder children, how about gun controllers/dems…..

want your children murdered but not theirs, or are out to get you murdered to satsify their blood lust, or, want to control population growth by labeling places as “gun free zones” so mass murderers will know where to go when the urge strikes to kill to more effectively, thereby, reducing population growth, or want you raped and assaulted so they can satisfy their sexual fantasies, or they want all people defenseless so they can return to having servants or sex slaves as they did before the Republicans freed them, or so they can film your rape, murder assault and sell it for a profit, or, equate dems/guncontrollers to the Romans who fed Christians to the lions.

You know, I just don’t have any hope for this to ‘retreat’ to a sense of civility and decency on the part of liberals. This will just continue to escalate, won’t it? Is there any reason, whatsoever, that they will scale their behavior back to a ‘normal’ level of civil discourse?

I swear, they’re simply trying to start a breakout of violence; I don’t see any other end to this path they insist upon. *They* are not going to stop it, no matter what kind of reaction they get. They can’t be shamed into behaving themselves, they’re just going to continue to heat it up, ratchet it up, and at some point, something is going to snap from one corner or another.

And honestly, I’m about ready for it. I’m sick to f*cking death of these libelous, traitorous, evil, life and country destroying rat f*cking bastards.

Midas on January 17, 2013 at 10:09 PM

Ok, I’m ready for it; wish I was a video guy. Posted in another thread an idea for a commercial that had King Obama determining – randomly – the fate of kids, one at a time – “Poverty or Death” – abortion, death by gun control perhaps, or live and be plundered as Obama steals their future money to pay for spending today. ‘Death’ kids fall to the ground lifeless and get tossed into a big pile on one side of the King, and ‘Poverty’ kids get turned upside down so the money falls out of their pockets to be shoveled into a different big pile (or a fire pit, perhaps). Any video people want to run with that?

It just shows that a true man, a good leader, is not always a great public debater or figure…wouldn’t most anyone want to have Perry running this country now, rather than Obama, and now one of his goons, Christie?

Barrow is my representative and I know him pretty well.

Mine, too. After being re-districted, this is the first time in my voting life I have ever been represented in Congress by a Democrat. While anyone who lies down with San Fran Nan cannot be honorable in my book, Congressman Barrow is definitely courageous.

Barrow is also a member of the Augusta Chorale Society. At Christmastime, he and they sang parts of Bach’s “Magnificat” and Handel’s “The Messiah.” (I was in the audience.) Who’d have thought that when Barry complained about Americans who cling to their guns and their religion, he was complaining about a Democratic congressman?

Nevertheless, by 2014 the (Rs) will have a much better candidate to face him. If he doesn’t courageously stand by the conservative positions he has held for years, he will be seriously tested.

All the gun free zones do is create the opportunity for mass murder, and that is what the Left wants.

I remind you that Gov. Rendell said that he though it was fortunate that the killing happened, making it easier to push the gun ban agenda.

The Left does not care for innocent life, it cares about its program no matter who or how many die for the cause. Guilty life is another matter of course.

Anyone who disagrees is just over-invested in the cause. When the rest of us realize the truth, that Sandy Hook was part of the Left’s agenda, then perhaps they will quiet down.

If Sandra Fluke can demand free birth control, I demand free ammunition.
