Last night, as Oklahomans watched the spectacle of the National Football League, our diabolical old pal Senator Senile decided to charm Derplahomans, conspiracy theorists, racists, and other Oklahoma Republicans with the following campaign commercial:
Wow. For an ad that panders to his delusional base, that’s not too bad. It hit all the talking points and even included a throwback reference to flag-burning! With all the national flack focused now on athletes taking knees during the National Anthem as a protest to police brutality in America, it’s nice to see an old-school non-existent wedge issue be used to galvanize a political base.
Since it’s apparently Bartlesville week on The Lost Ogle, I should probably point out that Bartlesville Radio published the transcript to the commercial. I reads like an epic poem written by Alex Jones:
The race for Senate isn’t so much about individuals, it’s about the soul of our nation.
Our way of life in Oklahoma.
While parts of the country burn, Oklahomans pray.
Others shout to defund the police, Oklahomans treasure law enforcement.
Some burn our flag; Oklahomans cry for those who died for it.
And, some want big brother to grow bigger, tax us till we break, command us how to live. Those people are called:
socialists, liberals, progressives.
They are not called Oklahomans.
Jim Inhofe is an Oklahoman.
He’s a patriot, served in the United States Army. Serving us is Jim’s life.
Keeping wolves far from Oklahoma’s borders.
I think my favorite idiotic line is where Inhofe claims that socialists, liberals, and progressives are not Oklahomans. It makes sense. I believe it was the famed and treasured Oklahoma fascist Will Rogers who once said – “I never met a man I didn’t like… unless he was a socialist, liberal or progressive.”
Actually, I shouldn’t mock that too much, because I don’t have to claim to be an Oklahoman! What a relief! I was getting tired of explaining to other people what it’s like to be part of a group that elect idiots like Jim Inhofe into public office.
Piss off Inhofe and support Non-Oklahoma media today.
