The thing is, I think these are really interesting ads and a pretty great statement.  THAT SAID, MTV has played a large part in creating the apathy of today's youth.  Shows like Super Sweet Sixteen and all the other bullshit they present, I mean they've turned "stupid spoiled whore" into a goal, a fashion statement, and their entire core audience is therefore too stupid to actually understand these ads anyway.

I would partake in a  "Alcoholocaust" and that's about it.

Uh... and who is supposed to be issuing this American Holocaust?  For what reasons are the Government doing this?  Why are these people being targetted, et cetera.  People have a right to political statements, but it doesn't excuse half-assed or just plain wrong statements.

I always say this because I believe it to be true, but always fear the messiahs and not the machiavelli's.  One will shoot you in front of everyone as a statement, but the other will take you and your entire family out back to die to mediate bad PR.

Yeah, the Holocaust also happened in a nation in the throes of an economic depression and hyperinflation, with no previous history of democracy.  And furthermore, what, if anything, are these ads trying to say?  That the people who died in the Holocaust were members of the same species (Homo sapiens) as us?  Congratulations.  We already knew that.  Are they trying to insinuate that the American government is or will be doing something like this?  Because if they are, they're completely, irreconcilably, idiotically fucking wrong.

What a load of shite.

Bleh. Even by polemic standards (which is about all MTV is capable of; I wouldn't even imagine them able to command rhetoric), those ads are pure piffle. The entire "Rock The Vote" mindset seems to be: Your complete lack of knowledge of the issues doesn't matter, so long as you get out there and vote! I can't imagine an attitude more wrong-headed or harmful.

I'm pretty sure that's how a majority of people vote, only without the catchy music.

what, if anything, are these ads trying to say?

I like the ads from an aesthetic viewpoint, but I really have to ask who they're talking about? Are we in some danger of turning into a police state that I was unaware of? Sure, people do seem willing to give up their constitutional freedoms in astonishing ways, but I think we're still a far way off from the pogroms that are illustrated in the ads. The commercials remind me of this crazed screed I read in the WorldNutDaily where this woman ranted about how all Christians would go to prison because of their beliefs if Hillary were elected president. There's a strange paranoia mixed with a desparate urge to be a martyr that seems to grip a lot of people these days.

I'll get off my soap box now and get back to the dick and fart jokes.
