The Commercial The MSM Doesn’t Want You To See

Reportedly CBS is refusing to air this ad…apparently it doesn’t fit their narrative and therefore is not to be seen. Which makes it all the more important to pass this along. The bill referenced in this ad is SO bad that even the Democrat’s beloved liberal George McGovern is opposed to it.

The legislation is called the Employee Free Choice Act, and I am sad to say it runs counter to ideals that were once at the core of the labor movement. Instead of providing a voice for the unheard, EFCA risks silencing those who would speak.

We are the party that has always defended the rights of the working class. To fail to ensure the right to vote free of intimidation and coercion from all sides would be a betrayal of what we have always championed.

Watch this ad. Do what it says – contact your members of Congress and tell them this is a bad bill. And then post this ad on your own blog, or send it to friends and family via email. If this election taught us anything it’s that we can’t count on the mainstream press to educate and inform – we have to do it ourselves.
