MoveOn sick-in-the-headness

MoveOn sick-in-the-headness

Just when you thought it could not get any worse.

MoveOn.org and Michael Moore have produced a video which is beyond description.

Can we just declare MoveOn a mental illness so it can be covered (under Obamacare, of course).

Video (h/t NRO)  NSFW (language warning):

Makes the creepy singing children and Lena Dunham seem quaint.

Are you sure this isn’t a parody from the NRC of Dems?!?!

It is so outrageous idiotic and stupid that I am sure it will gain far more votes for the Republicans, not lose them.

    This is what happens when Michael Moore threatens to eat old folks’ livers with fava beans and a nice Chianti.

    Yes, this is creepier than the little kids singing.

The left decides to abuse the elderly. What’s next?

This video exempliefies the opposition: insane, cocooned, and self-impressed.

As a mature, sensible adult, I would refuse to use the language and act in this commercial regardless of what I was being paid. These actors should be ashamed of themselves.

    Yep.

    When my sisters and I were at the funeral home after our mom passed away, we were joking back and forth (our way of coping) and entertaining the nice lady helping us with all the paperwork and arrangements.

    My little sister started telling her how our mother never once used the “F-word” in her life.

    My sister told her how helpless she felt one day at the hospital, seeing our mom in severe pain, and unable to help her.

    She said, “I told her, half-jokingly, ‘Mom, I think this could be one time in your life when you could use the F-word … nobody would blame you … just say it.”

    But our mom refused. So my sister said, “Okay, Mom. If you can’t bring yourself to say the F-word, just say, ‘This is the sh*ts.'”

    My sister said our mom feebly said it, but didn’t seem too happy about saying it.

    My sister concluded, laughing, “She just said it so I’d shut up.”

      Having worked in medicine for 40 years, I was always struck by a phenomenon which sometimes occurred with severe head injury or stroke – the patient would use language which was vulgar. I would watch these people’s children at the bedside, crying because they had never heard such language out of their parent’s mouths before. We would explain it was just a manifestation of their injury and would probably go away once the healing process began. So maybe we were wrong? It doesn’t go away?

Lest we not forget, what about the profane 10 year old in the notorious “Wake the F..K, Up!” ad by the esteemd Sammy Jackson!
I am concerned that the Democrats have lost touch with reality and it will be very ugly on Nov. 7!

This video is 24 caret Solid Gold for Romney…

The election will merely a formality. Obama has already lost.

Oh, and Grandma? Give it your best shot, dear. We aren’t intimidated by any threats from liberal trolls and especially not one as old as you, sweetie. 🙂

Funny, I work these days with a lot of ‘Old Timers’, NOT ONE of whom thinks the Valid ID requirement is–COUGH–Voter Suppression!! There are even a few(not many)Obama Voters in the ‘Coot number.

This Media Matters production seems to be aimed at the left-wing base itself. Perhaps the base is showing internal signs of Obama worship fatigue and Romney envy?

This is disturbing. The greatest generation was George Washington and the gang, NOT the WWII generation. Sorry, that’s just the way it is. In fact, the WWII generation may be the worst generation, since they are the ones who largely handed us the mess we are in today. They are the ones who benefited from massively expanding government meddling and entitlements. Now, they’re the ones demanding we accelerate off the fiscal cliff, so long as the get what the perceive is due them.

Sorry, gang, you are the last ones I would look to for advice on anything that matters in life.

(Caveat: Those of the WWII generation who have learned from life that government is not the answer to life are worthy of respect and an audience to teach us younger ones. They know better. Too bad there are/were too many who didn’t know better like the fools in this ad.)

Media Matters is apparently run by 14 year olds.

    short and sweet, but reveals a primary disconnect between the two sides: “live and let live” versus “my way or the highway.”

With the disrespect this ad displays for the real “Greatest Generation”, I can’t see it doing anything but pissing off all but the most rabid Obamabots.

I just had a nice visit with an aunt & uncle yesterday, both in their 80s. He served at the end of WW2, and still has a bullet in him from his time in the Pacific theater.

I can only imagine the disgust they would have for this ad.

The Lena Dunham video has 2 million views and the dislike to like ratio is running 16:13.

The creepy singing children video has had 171,000 views. 5500 people dislike it compared to 400 who live it, for a dislike to like ratio of about 55:4.

Funny how MoveOn has disabled both the ratings and the comments on this stupid video. They know that if they can punch conservative buttons, it will help the video go viral. But I don’t see how a video that goes viral only because it is offensive translates into votes.

I think Stanley Kurtz essay yesterday has it right. All of these videos and the small ball crap about Big Bird, binders and bayonets is a strategic decision to offend conservative and centrist independents. That way if Obama does win, he will do so only with super strong support from the far left. And if that is how he wins, then Obama believes that will give him a mandate to govern from the far left in a second term. He has ignored DOMA, the War Powers Act, 100 years of bankruptcy law with the auto bailout, and unilaterally instituted part of the DREAM ACT via executive fiat. There is no reason to doubt he will unconstitutionally assume even more executive power in a second term to govern from the extreme far left with or without Congress.

That’s all the more reason to reach out to everyone you know and make sure Obama is defeated.

    I thought Kurtz’s piece was good too. I saw it as a reminder of how, comparatively, Romney has run a non-ideological campaign and along with the GOP has refused to identify the Left but rather run their campaign, thematically speaking, as a generic republican vs. democrat race based on the economy. I see the rationale, but at the same time, the risks. I also feel the frustration of running against a Leftist who is unafraid of making his appeal to Leftism and wildly slandering conservatism in the process while we hold fire on explicit definitions of Obama’s ravaging leftism in order, as I see it, not to alienate the “middle” and “undecided.” Why is that we are always the ones biting our tongues in ideological timidity and restraint?

      Historically, Republican registration has lagged Democrat registration by a few percent, I think around 3%-4% on average. So to win elections Republicans could either run deeply conservative ideological campaigns and hope to get an abnormally large base turnout, or run a more moderate campaign and appeal to the center. Both sides have learned from history that excessivelly ideological campaigns can be very risky. Our side from Goldwater in ’64, and the statists from McGovern in ’72.

      That’s why both sides typically run more ideological campaigns in the primaries, then move to the center in the general during and after the conventions. That’s precisely what Romney has done. Obama has not. Axelrod seems to believe it is not necessary for Obama to move to the center, probably because his novelty of being the first black president and his stubbornly high likeability rating do not require him to do so. We’ll soon see if Axelrod has calculated correctly or if he has made an error that every campaign in the past 40 years has refused to make.

      I really hope for the sake of the country that the old rule of running to the center in the general continues to be valid and Obama loses in a landslide.

This is a joke, right? Right? Please tell me this is a joke. This will not sway anyone to vote for Obama or against Romney.

    I agree. This won’t sway anyone. I’m not sure it’s designed to persuade. It’s more akin to the petulant child who has been sent to his room. On his way there, he mumbles his displeasure and once there, he turns and screams his rage and displeasure at the closed door, representing the adults who are being so unfair to him. He may coax some sympathy from his siblings, but it gains him nothing.

I guess, #1, these old progressives have been voting for the socialist, racist party since they fought voting rights for blacks and women.
#2 Since Betty White has been all over swearing and make tired old sex jokes, this is supposed to be cool.
It’s not.

Deer WWII vet,

How do you feel about Teh Won hanging the US Ambassador to Libya and others there out to dry? US citizens, mind you.

Now I see the effects of dementia (and voting Democrat).

    A friend of my in-laws passed away recently, but she certainly would have volunteered to be in this video. She was a harsh, brash woman whose tendency to offend only became sharper as the senility increased. She was a big lefty as well.

    I have a 91-year-old aunt who sends Allen West money. Enough said.

My father, born 1918 in Flint, Michigan, which Michael Moore claims as his home town, landed on Omaha Beach on June 6, 1944. He was later wounded at the Battle of the Bulge. If he were still alive, he would spit on Michael Moore for this video.

    Iowa Jim,

    I guess your grandfather has a lot more class that I do, because I would like to spit on Michael Moore just for being Michael Moore.

    One of the greatest things ever was seeing Michael Moore sitting in Jimmah Carter’s skybox at the 2004 Democratic National Convention. A veritable Dumb and Dumber.

On his way to becoming the fat Josef Goebbels of the Democratzi party!

Isn’t this the same guy that lives high on (as?) the hog in gated communities and refuses to hire union workers?

I think Team America World Police summed him up nicely: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tRNpYLoSx_E

I have an aunt their age, with as much foaming hate against Bush, then Palin, whoever. She must get some moveon type newsletter, because she is always rabid about some talking point or fake piece of propaganda. She couldn’t get through five minutes with my Mom when she was sick, without launching into one of her political tirades about how stupid Palin is, or some such.

The left are masters at stirring up hate, creating division, manufacturing crisis.

    And they are lead by AARP – my grandmother hated Ronald Reagan because she was convinced he was going to take away her social security.

(Censored)

I sure could get into trouble reacting to “Republican Voter Suppression” especially with those wonderful, caring & non-violent Black Panther Party Guys standing there with their billy clubs & guns standing guard over my poling place.
(anybody hear the sarcasm in my post).

Let them Move On” ASAP to Indonesia, Pakistan, Iran, Saudi Arabia, China or Russia where they belong along with their idol, Obama.

Where is this place? I’d like to donate a jar of Metamucil.

My mother was a WAVE in WWII. She voted for Obama in 2008. Within months of his taking office, there were indications that he was going after veteran’s benefits, which caused the VA groups to go non-linear and he eventually backed off. This ticked off my mother to no end and she swore she would not vote for Obama again.

So here we are, almost 4 years later. My mother won’t even acknowledge the fact that she voted for Obama in 2008 – and she is voting for Romney in this election.

I think this video is a bunch of wishful thinking on the part of Move-on, Michael Moore and the Democrats. Good luck with that.

Also – does anyone else feel like this video is degrading to the elderly?
