A video by Rock the Vote, a supposedly nonpartisan group, portrays a U.S. Army soldier as a skeleton and talks about important issues, like legalizing marijuana.
In the video, a soldier is portrayed as a skeleton, running people over, and spitting out US Flag draped coffins from the back of its tank. A woman says, "Together, we can decide, like whether or not to go to war, or how we spend our money, and how we power our lives." A man then says, "We can determine who has the right to marry, and who has the right to choose, what possessions should be outlawed, and whether we should legalize." The cartoons in the background say it all.
One of the initiatives of Rock the Vote is to rally "young people to stop unfair registration laws," which seems like a pretty political thing to do, particularly in light of the polarizing statements being made toward Florida's initiative to purge illegal voters (some left wing organizations, such as MoveOn.org, have compared these laws to Jim Crow laws and Poll Taxes).
Does the organization consider unfair laws to be allowing illegal immigrants and dead people to vote? Likely not, as a blog on the site is thrilled over a veto by Republican Rick Snyder over voter laws.
The blog gushes,
"One bill would have required voters to affirm that they were U.S. citizens before receiving a ballot. Another would have required absentee voters to show a photo ID when picking up a ballot. The third would have required training for organizations and people who wanted to participate in voter registration drives."
The author is pumped up and declares, "These vetoes by the governor ensure that the most vulnerable voters maintain their say in the electoral process."
Hopefully, those who watch this video can see it for what it is...propaganda.
