Bloomberg has rallied his troops and built a “grass-roots” coalition to defeat the evil NRA and all its violent, gun-loving freak members. To combat the NRA, they’ve created this potent ad that will strike terror into the hearts and minds of every gun nut — by justifying their view that it’s better to own a weapon and defend yourself than to wait for the assistance of the police:
The ad shows a woman fitting the liberal stereotype — weak, defenseless, and emotional — attacked by a man who also fits the liberal stereotype — malicious, brooding, and violent. She calls 9-1-1 and tries to convince them to send the police, but the evil man breaks into the house and takes the innocent kid from the innocent lady. She tries to stop him but is unable to physically overpower him because, you know, women are weak and feeble.
The evil man pulls a gun, she poses in awkward faux fright, we hear the sound of a gunshot and the screen fades to black as the sound of the kid’s crying can be heard.
If this video were accepted as fact, a rational person would come to the following conclusions:
- All women are weak and require the protection of other men
- The men assigned to protect weak women cannot arrive in time to stop the evil men out to hurt women
- Women would be better off defending themselves
- The best defense against a gun is another gun, so women should purchase a gun to defend themselves
Of course, we already know that liberals (including Bloomberg) are waging a war on logic, so they’re banking on the hopes that nobody will stop to think about the assumptions this ad makes and the logical conclusions that arise from it.
However, I wouldn’t be surprised if Bloomberg finds that all his attempts to curb gun ownership falls into an ironic vacuum of failure in which all his efforts cause gun sales to rise — a failure that Obama sharply endured before him. Perhaps we should not scold Bloomberg for his idiocy but instead encourage him because, as liberals have taught us, the ends always justify the means. If he’s an accidental proponent of gun control, maybe we encourage his daft behavior. But I wouldn’t donate any money to his cause, that’s for sure.
The video is also a striking display of rampant modern feminism, in which all women are told they are in danger at all times and will certainly be a victim at one point or another. What a horrible, paranoid existence that must be. I would offer women a completely different outlook: Be aware, get trained, and buy a weapon for self defense that you’ve been trained in. If you’re not comfortable with firearms, try them out at a shooting range with people you trust. If you’re still not comfortable with firearms, get a collapsible baton, pepper spray, a taser, anything that can help you even the odds.
Guess who else does this? Men. If you’re all for equality — as feminists so often espouse — then defend yourself like a man would and stop sitting around waiting to be a victim. Bloomberg won’t be there to save you, as his video so astutely portrays.
