Anti-Dayton ad uses doe-eyed DFLer, gets mocked and ridiculed [VIDEO]

Wait, wasn't Obama the guy who talked about change?
:::: UPDATE :::: Allen says decried doe-eyed anti-DFL ad is actually critique of MNGOP

North Minneapolis activist Don Allen's Independent Business News Network released the first in a series of ads he plans to put together this campaign season using (alleged) DFL voters against DFL candidates.

"A Message to the Minnesota DFL" features a doe-eyed "Minnesota Democrat" named Kathy, who, as police sirens wail in the background, tells viewers, "I have watched our governor, Mark Dayton, promise 'change' but never deliver."

"This November, as a Democrat, I plan on making a change," Kathy continues. "I will use my vote to reset a stalled system. November 2014, I will not give my vote to any Democrat in Minnesota."

The ad closes with an endorsement of Jeff Johnson, the MNGOP-backed candidate for governor.

Here it is:



The ad wasn't well received on Twitter. Here's a sampling of some of the commentary: Reached for comment this morning, Allen says he's moving ahead with plans to produce a series of the spots. Others will feature Hispanics, African Americans, and Asians who identify as Democrats but for one reason or another have become fed up with the DFL.

Allen identifies himself as a "new Republican."

"The new Republicans are a little bit more focused on getting in and correcting some wrongs," Allen says. "We believe that gay marriage is a right -- people should be able to marry who they wanna marry -- we don't believe that a man in a suit should has anything to do with a woman's body... the right to life is a woman's."

"Civil rights and education are very important, whereas the current status of the MNGOP is, 'We're gonna sing to the choir as much as we can, and we're going to be exclusive, not inclusive, and open up offices all around the state but not in critical areas,'" Allen says. "The GOP under current and past leadership aren't going anywhere near north Minneapolis, [but] the Republicans aren't going to beat Ellison or McCollum when they have abandoned these local communities."

On its website, the IBNN says its goal "is to provide a different view of the local, national and global news and events that happen in the Black communities around the world."

That was awful. Can't believe anyone would release something so poorly produced.

Nothing will change for the better for her because she's convinced she doesn't exist.

Whites are the only race that are not allowed to act in their collective self-interest.  Point this out and people will hate, attack, blame, lie, deny, froth at the mouth, gnash their teeth, and violently attack you; unwittingly verifying the statement.

I almost bought it.  As if she was reading someone else's words to express something she herself believed.  Then she got to the part of the script where she clearly did not understand what she was reading.  It really fell apart there.

So Dayton hasn't delivered "change". I guess it's time to vote for the Party that pushed a State Constitutional Amendment to keep same-sex marriage illegal. Because that's "change". Or the Republican governor (Pawlenty) who vetoed a pretty decent medical marijuana law...thus bringing "change". 


If anything proved the fallacy of voting for the Republicans when Democrats disappoint you, it was the 2010 election. Nobody believed that the Republicans, who were openly saying a lot of crazy things, would actually try to govern on those crazy ideas. But, of course, they did. And they've doubled down on all of it, no matter what Don Allen might personally believe in. 


Allen would have been more convincing if he had actually shown one of his "new Republicans" that are actually running for office. If Allen is trying to imply that McFadden is pro-choice and "okay" with same-sex marriage, then Allen is delusional.

The DFL is hopelessly lost to big business and wealthy oligarchs. The GOP and the DFL are one and the same. The illusion of choice is not effective. So....just be honest. The DFL, like the GOP, is the party of corporatism and neo feudalism. Enjoy serfdom.

Well, she has been voting in at least three elections, you guise!! Sooo, pretty much a lifelong DFL supporter, with expert level voting experience, and a wealth of knowledge one only gains by not bothering to learn about things.

I'm impressed she knew what DFL stands for...good thing there were cue cards.

It seems to me that Don Allen has bigger issues with the state GOP than he does with the DFL.

and hahaha...as if Jeff Johnson, "let's arrest Citizens United" is the next logical choice for someone who voted for Dayton, Obama, and Hodges. Poor girl. She's probably not nearly the neanderthal this video portrays her to be.

"I've been a DFL supporter for, um, as long as I can remember." Judging from her reading of the cue card, that's what, all of 5 minutes ago?

Gay marriage and not anti-abortion? If you could start taxing big business and the very rich I'd be on board.Wait, you're still pro-gun, right?

"Jeff Johnson has more money in the bank than any of the other guys running for governor, which lets me understand he's fiscally conservative," um, what? This guy sounds crazy.

I would fine it a little more sincere if it wasn't painfully obvious that she is reading from cue cards.

@digitalprotocol ...which keep straying down to the cue cards. These are the last gasps of a doomed party. Dayton and Franken will easily win re-election.

@MNjoe @digitalprotocol I'm wondering if the MNGOP is going to find anyone to run against Ellison. Who will the conservatives here cheer for? Who will remind us, once again, that Ellison is a Muslim? 


They are a doomed Party. This will be the last MN election that this evangelical/Tea Party narrative will be viable for. And they won't have Obama to run against in 2016. He's about the only thing keeping the GOP together right now. 


MN Republicans are already 'remembering' that they "never really liked" Bachmann, Sutton, Franson, Quist, and Bills. By 2016, they will will 'remember' that they "never really liked" that whole Tea Party thing, either. It was those other Republicans that liked that stuff. It was just a "fringe" that opposed SSM, just like it was a "fringe" that said criticising Bush was "treason". 


Conservatives never lose; they just 'remember' that they were always on the winning side.

@green23 @MNjoe They will be insane and sexist with their Hillary hate.  It will drive women voters away from them.

@TheRealTruth916 The last time a conservative was in charge he let terrorists murder 3000 Americans.   Then Bush let Bin Laden live free and unpunished for 7 years.  I bet Bin Laden had a laugh everyday at the stupid losers like you who made sure he would not be punished for his crime.   Obama did the job conservatives were too stupid to do.   That's why you hate him.  That's why you hate liberals.   Everytime you look at Obama you are reminded of what a stupid loser you are.

@TheRealTruth916 @MicheleBachmann Project much? You've actually described the GOP plan for America since Obama was elected in 2007. And look how much better the country is doing DESPITE your party's best efforts to obstruct at every turn. When you ask most Americans, "Are you better off than you were 6 years ago?"  Most will answer yes and your party is doomed except for a few gerrymandered districts that might allow you to keep the House - this time. Texas is already a purple state - when it turns blue - look out!
