If you’re not aware, the latest fad in viral videos is the “Shit People Say” theme…which is covering every demographic out there. Above, you’ll find a few examples.
I’m sure your employers will love this, but you can literally spend several days at work clicking from one video to another that YouTube suggests in this genre and watching all sorts of takes on “Shit Gay People Say”, “Shit Straight People Say to Gay People”, “Shit Asian People Say”, “Shit Black People Say”, “Shit (Insert Celebrity Here) Says”, etc.
The videos all share the same format: short clips of someone saying a stereotypical thing that supposedly defines a type of person or group. It’s luck of the draw whether you’ll get a funny video or a weird and offensive one, but if you spend any time at all on Facebook no doubt you’ll encounter one of these soon (if you haven’t already). Hell, you might even star in one (or be inspiring the material for one without realizing it).
In the case of a “Shit Mitt Romney Says” video would stereotype the Cocktail Party GOP establishment elites that are pushing him towards the Republican 2012 nomination — and setting him up to lose to Barack Obama in the fall.
Just like in the clips above, a video could be cobbled together from various Romney media appearances that illustrate what a supremely weak general election candidate Romney will be. This would be a great thing to show anyone you know who’s been parroting that nonsense that “Romney’s most electable!”.
Right…and Pandora Boxx is a real woman from Rochester.
It would be particularly effective to have a “Shit Mitt Says” video where he’s saying something supportive of an issue in one clip…then showing him saying he’s against that very same thing in the next clip…and then showing him for that issue again in the end. Lather, rinse, repeat. It’s the way he flip-flops through almost everything in politics from one position to another…which makes him unelectable in the fall when people put it together that the guy stands for absolutely nothing but his own self-promotion.
The Left will create a “Shit Romney Says” video for the general election if Romney becomes the nominee. So why not beat them to the punch and do this now in the primaries?
One of the dumbest things I see repeated on conservative political sites is “Oh, you can’t do that! You’ll give the Democrats ideas!” or “Be quiet about that, you don’t want to give Obama material”. If you really believe that Democrats aren’t working on this stuff right now and putting it in reserve for August, then you are a fool. There is no nice way for me to say that. You are damn skippy, as we’d say back in Cleveland. Whether you like Romney or not, you need to understand that it’s better for everyone to get these things out now so that the Left doesn’t have an armory of YouTube videos ready to launch after Romney would secure the nomination.
Obama acolytes have spent four years counting on the Cocktail Party and agenda-driven media to anoint Romney as the “it’s his turn!” nominee and they are well-prepared for what they’re going to do to Republicans in a general election to secure Obama a second term.
If you want to stop their plan from being so effective, you need to raise your voice now while there’s still a chance of preventing Romney from becoming the nominee and Republicans falling right into the Democrats’ trap.
ACTION ITEM: Can you think of good quotes from Romney and find them on YouTube in videos so that we can make a “Shit Romney Says” video compilation like the YouTube clips you see above?
If so, can you make a note of the URLs in comments below…and also mark the exact time on the video that the quote appears. I’ll ask my boyfriend Justin to put a “Shit Mitt Romney Says” video together using the clips…but it would make things a lot easier for him if you could mark off exactly where the great quotes are.
I really don’t like typing an expletive like s***, especially an expletive based in excrement, but unfortunately “Shit People Say” is the term that’s being used for these viral videos.
This is an example of recognizing pop culture’s doing something that will indeed bleed into politics…and trying to be ahead of that curve and create it before someone on the Left does instead.
I wish the Republican Party as a whole was on top of things like this…but since it’s not, we need to pick up that slack ourselves it seems.
