USA – -(Ammoland.com)- “Members of the fashion industry are teaming up with Everytown for Gun Safety USA to lend their support to a powerful new music video bringing awareness to gun safety in schools,” Teen Vogue crows to its readers. “This is so powerful.”
They would want those with minds ignorant and weak enough to be influenced by their claptrap to believe that. After all, these are the pretty little liars trying to eviscerate due process by “closing” a so-called, ridiculous “boyfriend loophole.” They also consider it the height of personal courage to “guide” kids (they’re “teens,” right?) on how they can indulge in anal sex, smearing (sorry, I could have probably chosen a different word) anyone who considers that inappropriate as “homophobic,” that is, a hater.
“Set to SIA’s latest release, ‘Enough,’ the clip features 120 students from The National Dance Institute — a public dance program in New York City — dancing send a message about gun violence,” the agenda piece explains. “To do their part, members of the fashion industry stepped up to help outfit the cast: Levi’s donated 250 pieces of denim, and Everlane, State Bags, Banana Republic, Gap, Cynthia Rowley and Rachel Antonoff, all made donations of their own.”
Stupid videos funded by big money interests and produced with New York ad agencies are what we’ve come to expect from gun-grabbing Astroturfers. True, they would rather not get caught in lies, and true, they laugh off children encouraged by adult handlers to play with graphic sex toys (hey, you can’t prepare ‘em too early for Teen Vogue “guides”). But when you consider the only ones that find these efforts “so powerful” are already in the disarmament cult, I say let them waste their money on this nonsense rather than on more effective efforts.
Still, I wouldn’t mind finding out which school this was filmed at, if it is tax-funded, and if the administrators would allow its campus and facilities to be used to produce a “pro-gun” video — and for the same terms they gave the Bloombergians. What did the taxpayers get for this, anyway?
Speaking of money, there’s one “outfitter” credited at the end of the “Enough” video Teen Vogue neglected to mention for some reason: Wrangler. See for yourself at 3:56 into the video:
We’ve known for years Levi is run by gun-grabbers and that they are “proudly” part of the “Enough” campaign and Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown Business Leaders for Gun Safety. But Wrangler? That will surprise readers who made very positive comments about them under my column including:
- Wranglers are fine, and a lot less expensive!
- I am a Wrangler guy and have been since [Levi’s] last foray into the anti-gun movement.
- Left Levi’s years ago due to price. Wranglers for last 20 years.
- I went to wranglers (cowboy cut pro rodeo FWIW).
- When I found that out 20+ years ago I switched to Wrangler & have never looked back.
- Wranglers or Lee’s work for me.
- Quit wearing levis 30 years ago over the gun issues,Wranglers for me ever since.
- I bet Wrangler is dancing the HAPPY DANCE !
- I will stick to Wranglers and LEE jeans, thank you!
- ENOUGH IS ENOUGH, I will find another brand Wranglers, Lee’s, anything but Levi.
So, Wrangler: What’s the deal? Are you donating to Everytown now, or were your products used and your company credited without your knowledge or sanction? Have you earned these accolades?
I messaged them on Facebook and they have not replied at this writing.
I wouldn’t expect them to unless enough of you care to spread the word and—what is it the gun-grabbers do?—”demand action,” or at least some unequivocal answers.
