At the link is a new ad they cut contrasting a congresscritter talking about guns with -well- dead children.
But it gets better given this truly amazing edit:
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.”
Well, can't have that. Now can we? How dare someone take pride in his family's pro civil rights history.
Bah, it's not like people ever used guns to defend themselves against racists.
When Charles “Chuck” Hicks does the Martin Luther King Jr. Day peace and freedom walks Saturday, he’ll also be taking a step for what the National Rifle Association has dubbed “National Rifle Appreciation Day.” That’s because Hicks is the son of Robert Hicks, a prominent leader of the legendary Deacons for Defense and Justice — an organization of black men in Louisiana who used shotguns and rifles to repel attacks by white vigilantes during the 1960s.
“The Klan would drive through our neighborhood shooting at us, shooting into our homes,” recalled Hicks, 66, who grew up in Bogalusa, La., and has been a civil rights activist in the District for more than 35 years. “The black men in the community wouldn’t stand for it. You shoot at us, we shoot back at you. I’m convinced that without our guns, my family and many other black people would not be alive today.” "
But... but... nobody needs a gun to defend themselves!
Also Barrow's a Democrat. In a very conservative Georgia district. Sure attack him on guns. That's a super idea.
And as a bonus? CSGV's youtube video has disabled both comments and voting.
Via Hotair. And note that despite the gun control push the GSGV is still getting woeful views on their youtube. Of course the real Gun Grabber push is coming from Bloomberg's MAIG and Obama's campaigning org
Yeah, you may want to keep the pressure up.
And that's just on the national level.
