URGENT: I got a response back already.Â Do not use their e-mailers, as they send attachments along that do contain Obama’s legal threat, along with all the material from FactCheck.org and various other sources.Â They do send your content, but you don’t want the baggage that goes along with it.
The Democratic National Committee is now taking up a petition to get NRA’s ads off the air.Â I have filled in my information so you don’t have to:
Dear Sir or Madam,
Please stop broadcasting the misleading and phony NRA attack ad against Barack Obama on your stations.
Time and again, Barack Obama has defended the right to bear arms created by the Constitution. However, this shameful ad misrepresents Barack’s position on illegal guns and tries to scare voters with incorrect information about his stance on the issue.
This NRA ad is a lie, and is not fit for public broadcast.
The public airwaves are no place for this kind of hateful and misleading trash. I hope you will stop broadcasting this deceptive ad on your station and prevent the level of discourse to be lowered by the lies it presents.
Please take this ad off the air at once.
Will the blue dogs in the party condemn this action?Â Or will they stand by and take it from Obama?Â If they want gun owner support, this isn’t how to go about it.Â I will say that at least the DNC didn’t threaten their broadcast licenses.Â Since they allow editing, I have taken their form and translated it to this:
Dear Sir or Madam,
Please do not give into intimidation and threats from the Democratic Party and the Obama campaign to cease running NRA’s ads.Â As an independent voter, a gun owner, sport shooter, and an NRA member, I find it offensive that the Democratic Party has chosen to attempt to silence my views.Â Please keep running the ads by the National Rifle Association.Â They speak for me, and many other gun owners who will not be voting for Barack Obama this coming November.
That should be a nice middle finger extended to the Democratic National Committee.Â Unfortunately, they ask for a donation after you submit, and “Piss Off” is not among the options.
