The National Rifle Association released an advertisement that brought the hammer down on the “ayatollahs of Iran” telling them: “[Y]ou’ve never met America. And you oughta pray you never do.”
Entitled, “You Haven’t Met America” the ad is part of their “national campaign” to tell Iran and others that the “absence of firm leadership in our executive branch shouldn’t fool the enemies of America into thinking that our nation is weak. Our true strength lies in the firm hands and ready steel of millions of proud, hard-working men and women.”
The ad features country music singer Charlie Daniels saying, “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, or the people who will defend this nation with their bloody, calloused, bare hands, if that’s what it takes. You haven’t met the steelworkers and the hard-rock miners, or the swamp folks in Cajun country who can wrestle a full-grown gator out of the water,” Daniels argues.
“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 oughta pray you never do,” Daniels said, concluding with the NRA’s slogan, “I’m the National Rifle Association of America, and I’m Freedom’s Safest Place.”
