Moveon.Org is continuing with the grand tradition of the "peace" movement's get 'em with fear campaign. They have reworked the 1964 "Daisy" ad - made and paid for by LBJ's campaign - which hyped the possibility of armageddon in the event of a nuclear war with Russia, should Barry Goldwater become president.
[the] ad includes scenes of military escalation before the mushroom cloud appears. Then the screen goes black, with a warning that a war might end quickly — or it might spread to other countries and end with "the unthinkable."
The ad ends with the message: "Maybe that's why the overwhelming majority of Americans say to President Bush: Let the inspections work."
I thought the peacenicks were orginally against the intrusion of inspections. Now they want the inspections to work.
I love the Pie in the Sky attitude of these people. Why are they so trusting of Saddam? Why do they even trust Hans Blix, who has been duped by Saddam before? No matter what the inspectors find or don't find, the fact remains that the anti-war movement will never be satisfied.
It must be nice for a "grass-roots" organization to have $400,000 to spend on
propaganda tv ads.
Couldn't they feed some homeless people or save some chickens with that money?
