“A Florida gunmaker company is unapologetic after devising an advertisement for its products that declared ‘NOT TODAY ANTIFA,'” theblaze.com reports. “Spike’s Tactical produced the ad, which caused controversy on social media, in conjunction with a Texas-based clothing company, Pipe Hitters Union.” Spike had some choice words for critics who said they should spike the image . . .
“For the snowflakes and writer at Newsweek that we triggered with massive amounts of butthurt, here’s a lower we made just for you. The Spike’s Snowflake.”
But before those sly sale-oriented bon mots, Spike’s PR guy sounded a bit more reasonable.
Kit Cope, the company’s marketing director, told WFTV that the ad features “defenders” standing up against violent protesters and was adamant that the ad did not condone white supremacy.
“We are absolutely anti-bigotry, anti-racism – all of those things are very anti-America,” Cope said. “We are very pro-America, pro-law enforcement [and] pro-military.”
Cope added, “We wanted [the ad] to bring up thoughts, feelings, that can be discussed. We’re just trying to start a discussion.”
A “discussion.” OK then. Is this ad incendiary for firearms freedom fence straddlers? Is that important?
