    It's been under attack decades. The term itself is an attack.

    The ad has some truth problems, such as "Americans are under attack by Islamic extremists in every corner of the world", "lesbians and feminists are attacking everything sacred", "...liberal judges have completely rewritten the constitution: you can burn the American flag...but you can't say, "God" in public.

    Now, I liked "Leave it to Beaver", Ward Cleaver was very cool, but the show was totally white, middle class suburban - that is creepily Twilight Zonish to me. The attack on feminists is reminescent of the Stepford Wives while the antiliberal, antihomosexual stance is Pod Peoplish.

    How is the style of this ad "new"? Lies, exaggerations and fear of Others - same old, same old.

    I'm not, but it's no surprise that you would turn to personal attacks.

    Sure, and whatever it is that you are revels in lies, exaggerations and fear of the Other.

    If you consider my statement a personal attack, you've been living a sheltered life.:laugh:

    As you've illustrated, you're a lot better a personal insults than I could ever hope to be.

    There arent any lies in this. He hit the nail on the head on each and every point. A black man had no trouble using a clip from leave it to Beaver but a liberal becomes troubled at the color of his skin. Imagine that.

    Yes, carpro, it was a personal attack, accent on the personal. It derails the thread to when you make the thread about a fellow poster.

    Only when provoked.

    I've already mentioned them. You can't say God in public? That sound like a lie. When were Americans attacked by Islamic extremists in Mexico or Norway? Or did I misunderstand "every corner on earth"?

    I wasn't troubled by the color of his skin, but I am troubled by the glorification of conformity ├╝ber alles.

    We as people need to stop making judgements about people that we cannot back up. Especially when they are in the negative. Daisy you cannot say that this guy is following the President of the United States or the Republicans blindly and without question. You just do not know that. And it is possible that he out of the sincerity of his heart has sought out his conscience and fell into agreemant based on his moral values. To say otherwise in an unfounded attack.

    Very ingenious ad, and well stated points. I agree with what he is saying and hope he gets elected.

    I'm as liberal as they come but would welcome this guy by to further discuss his views. I'd believe he'd have me voting, republican (ssshhh)

    The problem with this country is he is offending too many groups to ever get into office. As indicated by this board, he wouldn't even get all the christian vote.

    Good advice - try following it yourself.

    Um, Revmitchell, I didn't say that. I didn't even think of saying that. It seems you are reading stuff into what I did say.

    What I did was criticize the ad, which is the nominal topic of this thread. I don't know much about this guy, but he doesn't have much regard for facts.

    The ad is apparently effective with some of the people here, so I cannot say that it totally reeks. It is, however, chock full o'lies and exaggerations. Some people evidently enjoy that sort of thing. Go figure.

    Political correctness is not about facts, either.

    It's about overreaction to a given situation in order to please a vocal minority or one of the the radical fringe groups of America.

    It follows that the best way to point out the ridiculous nature of "political correctness" is to be just as overreactive and ridiculous.

    This ad does it very well and with a sense of humor...

    which most liberals seem to lack.
