Bloomberg Anti-Freedom Commercial will Fall Flat

Gun Watch – by Dean Weingarten

Anti-freedom politicians have a history of overreaching on guns. They think they can fool the stupid country rubes by picking up a shotgun and asking “can I get me a hunting license here?”, the image of Diane Feinstein with her finger inside the trigger guard of an AK47 variant, and various political figures picking up guns just prior to elections.

Mayor Bloomberg Bloomberg is attempting to do the same with his 12 million dollar buy of commercials pushing for universal gun registration (also known as Universal Background Checks) in 13 states.  

Here is one of the advertisements.

In the advertisement, you see many cultural referents designed to create a link to the rural gun culture. There is a pickup truck, a beard, a plaid shirt/jacket, children in the background playing on a tire swing.

But all that is undercut by the body language of the actor who is transmitting the message. It is clear that the gun is merely a prop. It is hard for me to pin exactly what screams “fake” to me from the screen. Maybe it is the time of year. Maybe it is the way he is positioned on the truck. Perhaps more alert viewers will be able to explain it better.

I do not think that Mayor Bloomberg is going to be able to fool many people in the gun culture with this message, and I do not think he will convince many outside of it to action.

  1. I hope you’re right and people will see through it but, on the other hand, people today are really dumb. I’m hoping for the best.

    1. As a Vietnam vet and someone raised around guns in Texas, you never ever have your finger on the trigger unless you’re ready to shoot. Plus he has one hand on the gun. At least he didn’t have it pointed at the camera. The shotgun(and shirt)is a poor attempt to make the 2nd Amendment appear to be about hunting. It isn’t. It’s about protecting yourself from the govt. And a 12ga won’t get the job done.

    1. Diggerdan
      I always wondered why you called him Pee Wee. Then a couple of days ago I heard him talking and he was kind of excited while he was talking and he wasn’t using a prepared speech. Just talking off the top of his head and he sounded just like Pee Wee. I was in the other room and I heard Pee Wee Herman on Fox News talking about gun control. I ran in to the TV expecting to see Pee Wee and it was Pee Wee Bloomingbrains on. right away, I said, Oh, that what Diggerdan means! Buahahahaha!

      1. NC started it. (Bloomie screaming, with bells/whistles/sirens blowing, like Pee Wee in “Pee Wee’s Playhouse.”) It’s become a running joke.

  2. Bloomberg is like the Bolsheviks in my opinion, he and his ilk, like feinstein, Boxer, Shumer, etc.etc. have the same thing in mind that happened to Christian Russians, they want our guns removed just as was done there and in other totalitarian takeovers, If they get them then the fate of so many disarmed peoples will be ours!

    A Taboo Subject
    Although officially Jews have never made up more than five percent of the Russian population, they played a highly disproportionate and probably decisive role in the infant Bolshevik revolution and regime, effectively dominating the Soviet government during its early years. Soviet historians, along with most of their colleagues in the West, for decades preferred to ignore this subject. The facts, though, cannot be denied.

    With the notable exception of Lenin (Vladimir Ulyanov), most of the leading Communists who took control of Russia in 1917-20 were Jews. Leon Trotsky (Lev Bronstein) headed the Red Army and, for a time, was chief of Soviet foreign affairs. Yakov Sverdlov (Solomon) was both the Bolshevik party’s executive secretary and — as chairman of the Central Executive Committee — head of the Soviet government. Grigori Zinoviev (Radomyslsky) headed the Communist International (Comintern), the central agency for spreading revolution in foreign countries. Other prominent Jews included press commissar Karl Radek (Sobelsohn), foreign affairs commissar Maxim Litvinov (Wallach), Lev Kamenev (Rosenfeld) and Moisei Uritsky.6

    Lenin himself was of mostly Russian and Kalmuck ancestry, but he was also one-quarter Jewish. His maternal grandfather, Israel (Alexander) Blank, was a Ukrainian Jew who was later baptized into the Russian Orthodox Church.7

    A thorough-going internationalist, Lenin viewed ethnic or cultural loyalties with contempt. He had little regard for his own countrymen. “An intelligent Russian,” he once remarked, “is almost always a Jew or someone with Jewish blood in his veins.”

    1. Judaism is neither a race or a religion, it is Xenophobic Tribalism.
      XENOPHOBIC: n.
      A person unduly fearful or contemptuous of that which is foreign, especially of strangers or foreign peoples.
      TRIBALISM: n.
      1. The organization, culture, or beliefs of a tribe.
      2. A strong feeling of identity with and loyalty to one’s tribe or group.

      Judaism is really a primitive GANG, they call themselves a TRIBE. Merely being the relation to a former-member does NOT make YOU a member. According to their rules, your Having a Jewish mother determines that a person is Jewish, the Jewish father determines the “tribe” of Judaism. But you still have to be “IN GOOD STANDING”. And if you fall out of “grace” you can be “Herem” which is what happened to Jesus, since they cannot kill a member of the TRIBE.

  3. Bloomberg is working to reinstate SLAVERY. When the government can DICTATE how much soda-pop you PERMITTED to drink at one time, that IS SLAVERY. What aspect of your life is NOT under their “COMMAND”?! It will be simple as soup for them to attach your Wii or X-box to the internet so they can monitor your MANDATED exercise or work productivity. They will monitor every purchase, every possession. We built this country, and we must disassemble it. Any government that will torture will enslave.

  4. there were no so-called “Jews” or Judaism even in Jesus’ time…

    all so-called “Jews” are manifested from the Talmud, an anti-Israelite
    BAD FAITH so-called Religion…slave ship owners, currency printers..mass murderers for profit..promoting sickness degeneracy, miscegenation, sodomite “civil” unions…”CULT AWARENESS”…stuff like that…

    stealing homes and land and calling the inhabitants terrorised from their homes…TERRORISTS !!

    but then you also have America over run with…real savages & heathens

    who not only shouldn’t have access to “guns”,

    but shouldn’t have the ability to have an erection either….what you gonna do ?
