You can tell it is an election year- the race pimps are at it again. Here is Ryan Lizza in his debut as an Al Sharpton wannabe:
Bush’s first round of ads became immediately famous for using images of Ground Zero and a flag-draped body being carried away from the rubble of the World Trade Center.
His newest spot, “100 Days,” might soon become famous for another campaign first. It is the first ad to use the image of a dark-skinned man who is obviously meant to be a terrorist.
The ominous slow-motion footage comes about halfway through the 30-second ad. A female voiceover darkly warns about John Kerry’s agenda, charging, “On the war on terror: weaken the Patriot Act used to arrest terrorists and protect America.” On the left of the screen flash the words “John Kerry’s Plan.” On the bottom a red box warns, “Weaken Fight Against Terrorists.” If you look closely, on the right side of the screen you can see an airplane taking off.
The center of the screen is filled with three different rectangles of slow-motion video. In the top panel travelers at an airport study the arrivals and departures monitor. In the center panel there is a shadowed image of a person wearing a gas mask. And on the bottom there is a close-up of a swarthy, somewhat sinister-looking man with darting eyes who slowly turns toward the camera. He is clearly the terrorist in this scary montage.
The Bush campaign held a conference call for the press this afternoon to unveil the ads, and one reporter asked whether it was appropriate to use an Arab-American to depict a terrorist. Campaign aides said the actor in “100 Days” wasn’t Arab-American. One official on the call insisted it was just a “very generic” image.
A.) The actor who played the mythical terrorist was not arab.
B.) Even if he was, so fucking what?
These are the same idiots that think because in Gibson’s Passion, some Jews crucified Christ, therefore the film is anti-semitic. You know, there is a difference between these sentences:
“Some jews crucified Christ.”
“THE JEWS crucified Christ.”
Race pimps. They will do anything to divide.
*** Update ***
Dumbest comment of the month- “Why didn’t they just use a real terrorist.”
Umm… Then the image would probably have been ofArab descent, and your reaction to that would be rather predictable.
