MoveOn.org Uses Vulgar Ad to Encourage Voting

In an email urging young people to volunteer and vote in next Tuesday’s election, MoveOn.org included a threat-filled, foul-mouthed new video appeal produced by Michael Moore.

The video is meant to drive those who receive and watch it to VotersRising.org, another website from the liberal activist group listing opportunities to volunteer in their effort to re-elect President Barack Obama.

“This week I've produced something very special with MoveOn.org — a new video where members of our Greatest Generation explain how they've done their part to preserve this country's values, but that now it's our turn. They're very . . . direct,” Moore writes in the email. “Please check it out — it brings this home in a way I guarantee you've never heard before.”

Moore’s new production features five seniors at the Rosebud Nursing Home, three of which deliver the very pointed message to Republicans, Gov. Mitt Romney, and young voters who they fear won’t show up on election day.

Robert Laurie at CainTV called it the “most offensive campaign ad ever.”

“I was born in 1915 during World War I. My first vote was in 1940 for Franklin D. Roosevelt and I have not missed an election since,” says 97-year-old Marie, in the video. “And I want the Republican Party to know, if your voter suppression throughout this beautiful country enables Romney to oust Barack Obama we will burn this [expletive] down. ”

Marie is followed by 75-year-old Dorothi, who threatens to deliver “the world’s biggest [expletive]” to Mitt Romney “if the Republicans steal this election.”

“Well, we’ve certainly never heard it in a political ad, that’s for sure,” wrote Laurie. “Then again, no one has ever sought to bring the level of political rhetoric to quite such a base level before. Congratulations to Moore for dragging the election down to his bottom-feeding standards.”
