Sexist, degrading ad compares voting for Obama with losing your virginity

In a bizarre ploy to draw drifting young voters back to his voting bloc, the Obama campaign released a creepy video laden with sexual double entendres aimed at first-time voters. According to the Democrats, voting for the first time — but only for Obama, naturally — is just like losing your virginity.

“Your first time shouldn’t be with just anybody. You want to do it with a great guy,” actress and creator of the HBO show “Girls” Lena Dunham gushes. “It should be with a guy with beautiful … somebody who really cares about and understands women.”

“Understanding women” apparently means insulting half our number. The video boasts 245,084 views and has 5,010 dislikes to 3,444 likes, and while there’s no breakdown for female votes, many women are edging away from the cloying clasp of the Democratic party.

It’s easy to dismiss the ad as yet another ill-conceived attempt to reach women understood as a monolithic voting bloc. But that view misunderstands the much deeper, more troubling undertones of the ad.

The Obama campaign released “Life of Julia” back in May, a grossly distorted caricature of how wonderful an ordinary woman’s life would look like if only voters gave the government more power and more money. Throughout Julia’s imaginary life, one figure is eerily absent: a man. Obama’s Julia exists in a fatherless, brotherless, husbandless vacuum. In their place is a powerful government (Big Brother, anyone?) doling out benefits while taxing the rest of Julia’s income.

The Obama campaign, not content with pitting the sexes against each other, dirties sexuality with politics and uses the sloppy combination of both to insinuate anyone who isn’t voting for Obama is a backwards weirdo prude who just doesn’t understand.

“It’s super uncool to be out and about and someone says, ‘Did you vote,’ and ‘No, I didn’t vote, I wasn’t ready’,” Dunham pouts before the camera quickly cuts to the next clip.

How would Obama feel if the Romney campaign released a similar ad directed at Malia and Sasha — swipe your v-card quickly before the tolerant Left humiliates you?

It’s eve more disingenuous now for the Left to claim the Right has engaged in a “war on women” the Obama campaign has successfully marginalized women and reduced them to their lady parts… literally.

    Disgusting video and I hope that every proud & responsible father that has a daughter denounces this trash! 4 years of trash! Isn’t America sick of all the political trash being produced by this administration yet?

  3. Rob says:

    To me it seems that the Democratic party feels women are helpless and need government to take care of them. I have a 13 year old daughter and I am bringing her up to be independent, self-supporting young woman. The Democrats are trying hard to destroy all of the work we as parents are doing to make our children self sufficient, responsible young adults, and it makes me sick. Why aren’t more women upset about being used and humiliated by the Democratic party? I really don’t get it.

      Let’s hope that more women see what Obama’s done to them and this country: He trashed us, threw us away as if we were refuse. Women should not be treated as property, and neither should this country be treated as a kingdom. Vote Romney for a better country and more freedom for all!

On Hectic Day, ‘No Drama’ Obama Sticks to Schedule
WALL STREET JOURNAL — Barack Obama’s unflappability was a selling point on the 2008 campaign trail, with aides proudly donning T-shirts reading, “No Drama Obama.” But as much of an asset as it was for the candidate, Mr. Obama’s steady-as-she-goes approach to life can cause problems as president. This conflict was on full display Thursday, […]
