[Ed. – Their outrage is justified. As we have learned from liberals in recent weeks, you can get dead just be looking at a firearm.]
Republican Brian Kemp is running for governor in Georgia, and his new campaign ad has viewers flooding local networks with complaints, WXIA-TV reported.
Outrage over the ad, which features Kemp holding a shotgun, prompted WXIA to publish an article detailing why they were legally unable to remove the ad from the air.
“11Alive News has received many complaints on the commercial released last week by the Brian Kemp for Governor campaign. … The Federal Communications Commission’s political broadcast rules actually prohibit television stations from refusing or altering political advertising from any legally qualified candidate,” the article stated.
The ad features Kemp sitting beside a young man referred to as Jake, who, for the sake of the commercial, is said to be interested in dating Kemp’s daughter.
Kemp his holding a shotgun in what could be perceived as a mildly threatening manner, and he has the teenager recite some of Kemp’s campaign talking points, as well as listing “respect” and a “healthy appreciation for the Second Amendment” as requirements for dating his daughter.
