Let me start with a caveat now and I will repeat again in future posts: These are not all the emails between MAIG and the NYC government regarding Gun Control and I even doubt the cover all the emails requested by judicial watch.
That being said, MAIG looks less professional that initially thought. Don’t be fooled, they are a fantastic team when it relates to shaping, directing & controlling media to push their message. New York is the advertising capital of the world and they have access to some of the biggest names (mentioned through the emails) in advertising and they are not shy at exploitation of survivors or their relatives. It also helps that many of these firms are staffed or owned by former Democrat operatives so they start with a pre-existing meeting of the minds.
They are also flush with cash. They don’t have any problems asking for donations (we be poor help us!) but their six month budget was $10,976,700 or almost $2 million a month! (page 524.) Imagine what kind of influence can we exercise if we had that amount of cash flowing to buy ads in magazines, newspapers and TV spots.
What they lack (among several other things) is a firm background on the legal and legislative issues that can help them. Of course those are fields that they don’t have any standing as it favors our side so they must go for the emotional argument, not the logical one. And nobody can stir those emotions better than Celebrities.
But apparently, they were not the only ones and there are so many celebrities in the pool. The Brady Campaign was also tapping into the Entertainment Fountain and polite WTFs followed.
It is sadly funny to see them bickering like children fighting for the last candy bar of Halloween. The need to be the top Gun Control voice is strong… but soon enough the biggest voice of all came calling and they had to take a seat in the back of the bus:
It caught them by surprise. I am sure Bloomberg and staff were not happy to be mixed with other less-important majors and to be told they are not the toughest kid in the playground.
In a battle of Liberal Egos, they all lose.
