While the standard focus for the 2012 presidential election has been the economy and jobs for candidates such as Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich, a lesser known candidate is focusing on something rather controversial in nature, according to the Christian Newswire. And he’s going to use Super Bowl Sunday as a way to speak out.
Randall Terry has pretty much been under everybody’s radar as a presidential contender. However, it would seem that Terry has a plan to make Super Bowl Sunday his own personal platform, using a social issue that most candidates want to avoid whenever possible: his pro-life stance.
Interestingly, Terry is running as a Democrat. And Democrats aren’t generally known for holding a pro-life view. Not only is Terry putting his pro-life stance out in front for his campaign on Super Bowl Sunday, but the commercials he wants to pay to have aired on Super Bowl Sunday are so controversial and graphic in nature that several television stations have been trying to avoid airing them.
Terry believes that, “As Christian candidates, we have a fundamental right to decry the murder of the unborn and to make the plight of unborn babies the first priority of our candidacies. Furthermore, we have an inalienable right to use FCC-licensed stations to broadcast our ads without editing and without censorship.”
Like Eric Metaxas who was the keynote speaker at the National Prayer Breakfast earlier this week, Terry has tied aborting babies in with civil rights, the holocaust and the idea of “never again” in at least one of several Super Bowl Sunday commercials he wants aired.
Interestingly, Terry was captured in a video in some intense activist activity at a town hall for Obamacare back in 2009 by a socialist-communist organization called Velvet Revolution. He had apparently announced that he was going to disrupt the town hall, and then he followed through and was escorted out by the police. Click on the video above and to the left to see the footage.
Terry admits that, “”The best efforts of the Democrat party to subvert free elections have failed. In the 1940’s the Democrat party sought to preclude African Americans from participating in primary elections. The Supreme Court ruled in two separate cases (The United States vs. Classic, Smith vs. Allwright) that the Democrat party could not preclude candidates or voters from participating in a primary, based on race or creed, regardless of the wishes of Democrat party bosses.”
At least 15 stations in seven states are scheduled to run the pro-life Super Bowl ads in pre-game shows, during the Super Bowl, or in News Broadcasts after the game.
Terry points out that, “The FCC ruling regarding the Chicago NBC affiliate, WMAQ, was a ‘CYA’ gift to that station alone. The FCC decision hinged narrowly under the wright-in rules regarding whether or not I had given a ‘Substantial showing.’ The decision merely said that, given the facts in Chicago presented by WMAQ, that it was not “unreasonable” for WMAQ to deny me an ad. Because David Lewis, Angela Michael, and I are on the ballot in other states, we are de facto ‘Legally Qualified Candidates,’ which is why the stations are proceeding to run our ads on Super Bowl Sunday.”
Terry adds that, “We say to our political enemies, and to those who promote the murder of babies, that we will continue to run these ads across the country in primary season and in the general election where we are on the ballot. Our intention is to make child killing the number one political issue of the election this year.”
