I misrepresented the commercial? I did say this was a USA network ad, I never said it was a ad for Obama. I put up a link to the original ad. Also,
yes, I have seen the commercial. How do you think I saw the image in the first place?
I don't think I am misrepresenting anything. I am talking about subliminal type images thrown right in our face. Yes, those paintings were created by
the painter but USA - owned by NBC, IIRC - decided to use them. I have a hard time believing they just let the painter throw up whatever. Maybe so,
but that image is pretty provocative. After seeing videos of little children singing love songs to Obama I am worried about things like this. I don't
hate the guy nor like him, I happen to think he's just a puppet. Irregardless, I am not going to follow whatever he says, blindly, and this type of
image, to me, reinforces that type of "patriotism". Just do what the Pres says, he's doing it in our best interests.
I also never outright stated this was propaganda. I used a question mark, meaning I was asking for input. Maybe I should have outright asked if one
thinks this is propaganda or not. I thought I was clear and my apologies for not being clear.
I'm not whining about getting slagged. All input is appreciated. For those that don't agree, my point has nothing to do with the stated intent of
the commercial, it has to do with that image and what it can do and what it also MAY be doing to us, right now.
