• Revealing: Political Ad During the Super Bowl Tells Us a Lot about the Left

    Surge Summary: A Michael Bloomberg Super Bowl ad touting his gun-control policies reminds us how quick is the political Left to twist facts in order to promote their ideals.

    Former New York City mayor and billionaire political activist Michael Bloomberg ran an ad during last night’s Super Bowl game highlighting his desire to limit Second Amendment rights.  It’s worth noting that Bloomberg paid at least $10 million for that ad.  That speaks volumes about Michael Bloomberg’s priorities!

    But the ad was terribly deceptive.  It featured the mother of George Kemp talking about her son, who was shot to death in 2013.  The ad claimed that “2,900 children die every year from gun violence.”  But George Kemp was not a “child.”  He was 20 years old.

    The only way to get to the 2,900 figure is to grossly inflate it by including young adults up to 19 years-old.  Sadly, most gun deaths in urban areas are often teenaged gang members killing each other.  When you exclude adults, the number of annual deaths is cut in half.

    The ad’s only useful purpose was to prove just how deceptive the left is willing to be. Progressives can’t make arguments without gross distortions because they have no confidence they can win an argument based on facts.

    In contrast to Bloomberg’s deceptive ad about limiting our constitutional rights, President Trump’s campaign ran an ad in the first quarter of the game promoting criminal justice reform featuring Alice Johnson.  The powerful ad shows just now serious Trump is about competing for black votes.

    Also proving he’s a good businessman who knows how to save money, the president ran a second ad just after the game officially concluded, so it cost significantly less.  That ad touted America’s economic success under President Trump’s policies, and promised that “the best is yet to come!”

    Unfortunately, there was one ad that Fox Sports refused to run.  Click here to watch the pro-life ad featuring several survivors of abortion.
