It’s a simple enough concept: “all that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.” In this case, the Coalition Against Gun Violence trying to convince voters that not voting for pro-gun control politicians leaves blood on their hands. In the case of the second ad below, literally. Lensed by Filmmaker Mark Pellington of The Mothman Prophecies fame, the ad above is singularly, spectacularly doomed to failure. And that’s because . . .
Blaming non pro-gun control voters for spree killings may look and feel like the ballistic equivalent of “white guilt” to the CAGV, but it ain’t necessarily so. There is a HUGE difference between (wrongly) convincing a white person that they’re a racist because they’re white and white people did bad things to black people, and asserting that non-Democratic voters are complicit in mass murderer.
The ads simply show the antis’ barely-suppressed anger at people who don’t share their misguided, indeed ass-backwards views. Scary stuff, really.
