A viral National Rifle Association (NRA) television commercial features country music star Charlie Daniels warning Muslim terrorists that Americans are fighters who are armed, and together with the NRA, stand as freedom’s safest place. “No, you’ve never met America. And you ought to pray you never do.”
During the 60-second commercial, Daniels intimates that the American spirit is not well-reflected in President Obama and that Obama and “his weak-kneed Ivy League friends” may give would-be attackers the wrong idea; their weakness may actually give terrorists a false sense of security.
To the ayatollahs of Iran and every terrorist you enable, listen up. You might have met our fresh-faced, flower child president and his weak-kneed Ivy League friends, but you haven’t met America. You haven’t met the heartland, where the people will defend this nation with their bloody, calloused, bare hands, if that’s what it takes.
You haven’t met the steel workers and the hard rock miners or the swamp folks in Cajun country–who can wrestle a full-grown gator out of the water. You haven’t met the farmers, the cowboys, the loggers, and the truck drivers. You don’t know the mountain men who live off the land or the brave cops who fight the good fight in the urban war zones.
No, you’ve never met America. And you ought to pray you never do.
I’m the National Rifle Association of America, and I’m freedom’s safest place.
