A prominent Democratic Party lobby group is targeting users of AOL’s email service with ads demanding they sign a petition calling on Sarah Palin to retract “dangerous rhetoric” about the federal government stockpiling ammunition in preparation for civil unrest.
The ad, which can be seen in the video clip above and appears after users send an email, was paid for by the Democratic Governors Association (DGA), a lobbying organization which represents governors affiliated with the Democratic Party and was instrumental in Bill Clinton’s 1992 presidential victory. Many former DGA staff members have gone on to hold prominent positions within the government.
The ad refers to a comment made by former Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin on her official Facebook page last month in reference to the Department of Homeland Security’s mammoth purchase of some 2 billion rounds of ammunition over the last year.
“If we are going to wet our proverbial pants over 0.3% in annual spending cuts when we’re running up trillion dollar annual deficits, then we’re done, wrote Palin. “Put a fork in us. We’re finished. We’re going to default eventually and that’s why the feds are stockpiling bullets in case of civil unrest.”
