SAF Hires Former Trump Campaign Manager Brad Parscale to Generate Digital Content

The Second Amendment Foundation announced today it has signed an agreement with Parscale Strategies to produce digital media marketing and social media advertising.

“This move will help grow our Second Amendment family,” said SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb. “We’ll be able to expand our Second Amendment First Responders program and our Winning Firearms Freedom, One Lawsuit-at-a-Time project.”

Brad Parscale, founder and owner of Parscale Strategies, served as a digital consultant and political adviser to Donald Trump’s 2020 presidential campaign, and also served for a time as campaign manager. He also served as the digital media director on the president’s 2016 campaign. Gottlieb describes him as “an expert in building new media data bases and dramatically increasing the size of his clients and their branding.”

“This will take SAF to new levels of support and influence at a time when it is most needed to counter the radical gun ban lobby and the Biden Administration,” Gottlieb observed.

Parscale began working for the Trump organization in 2011. At that time, his focus was on designing and developing websites. Eventually, Parscale became the Trump campaign’s digital media director in mid-2016.

“This is a major step for SAF,” Gottlieb explained. “Brad built the whole Trump Facebook, Google, Twitter and other digital media campaigns. This will undoubtedly take SAF to new levels of support and activity, which we predict will become increasingly important as 2021 unfolds.”

With threats of major new attacks on Second Amendment rights from the incoming administration, Gottlieb said the significance of this new effort cannot be over-stated.

“We’ve got a fight on our hands,” he said. “Protecting the right to keep and bear arms is going to require every resource we can muster. I am personally delighted to have Brad Parscale in our corner because the next couple of years are going to be filled with challenge.”

 

The Second Amendment Foundation (www.saf.org) is the nation’s oldest and largest tax-exempt education, research, publishing and legal action group focusing on the Constitutional right and heritage to privately own and possess firearms. Founded in 1974, The Foundation has grown to more than 650,000 members and supporters and conducts many programs designed to better inform the public about the consequences of gun control.

    Good the “gun community” needs to get out of the echo-chamber. And into the media of non gun owners. We need to educate them. Because the MSM never will. This is a very long term battle.

    “Attorneys for Brad Parscale, President Donald Trump’s former 2020 campaign manager, want to stop the city of Ft. Lauderdale from obtaining his psychiatric records.
    The city can use those records to decide whether to take his 11 guns away for a year.
    Parscale was involuntarily detained in late September after his wife told police he was “ranting and raving” with a handgun and threatened to harm himself.
    In a court hearing on Thursday, lawyers for the city said the case meets all the necessary standards to make a “red flag” evaluation over Parscale’s gun possession.
    Parscale’s lawyers said he was acting “like a guy that just came from a Jimmy Buffet concert,” not aggressively.“

      Is that a euphemism for “drunk off his ass”?

        guy is a train wreck

      “Parscale was involuntarily detained in late September after his wife told police he was “ranting and raving” with a handgun and threatened to harm himself.”

      If he would have run over her foot, he’d be in the Senate today.

    Didn’t this guy have a psychological breakdown? You ready want to put his face on SAF?

      Crazy people are many times very good at what you want them to do.

      1. avatar Jim Warren says:

        Why not get Kanye West then? He’s batshit crazy too. Personally I’d go for the sane people to make my gun rights advertising with. Image is everything.

        1. avatar Chris T in KY says:

          West has solid millions of records. He has millions of fans. He is great at what he does. I wish we had such a young person to speak on behalf of gun civil rights. A previous NRA leader, shot and killed someone, when he was a kid. And everyone knew it when he got elected.

          I have no problem working with strange, odd, people who do their job, very well. I work with them all the time now. The “gun community” is failing because they only want “perfect” people to be in leadership..

        2. avatar Miner49er says:

          Eccentric, weird, odd people are no big deal.

          There’s a NASA mission control engineer who sometimes wears a green mohawk, choosing an outlandish hairdo for each launch. But he’s extremely good at what he does and it does not affect the performance or credibility of the mission

          But individuals who have ranted and raved while waving a gun should not be given positions of responsibility within the firearms industry.

    I hope this works out for a des AF.

    I know in Illinois, they keep using an incompetent attorney to file their lawsuits.

  5. avatar pleasedivorcefromTrumpforthesakeofourgunrights says:

    There went my support for the second amendment foundation. I hope FPC doesn’t try something like this. The marriage with Trump needs to end. For now, I like FPC. They do a lot of good work. But GOA and affiliates has become too political/culture wars.

    Highly recommend open source defense for a a blog that has good analysis and ceitical thinking, is unwavering in its support for gun rights, and doesn’t engage in culture wars.

    I thought he died……

  7. avatar Joe says:

    SAF needs help on updating their image, but this is a brain dead and tone deaf hire by any stretch.

  8. avatar Ralph says:

    Is this the guy who was writing Trump’s tweets? Oh, I hope not.

  9. avatar BeoBear says:

    If Trump hadn’t abandoned Brad Parscale’s campaign plan mid campaign he would never have lost. Parscale has had his personal issues afterwards but they were way overblown by the media (go figure). The man is very good at his job, maybe the best around. SAF made a good choice in hiring him.
