A new ad launched by the Democratic National Committee accusing Republicans of “inciting fear” of radical Islam proves that liberals don’t get out of their echo chamber much.
In fact, a new poll released Friday notes that while Democrats “refuse to say America is at war with ‘radical Islamic terrorism’ for fear of insulting all Muslims,” voters overwhelmingly disagree with that sentiment.
And not just Republican voters.
Even 56% of Democrats believe America is at war with radical Islamic terrorism, a view shared by 70% of Republicans and 54% of voters not affiliated with either major party.
A staggering 92% of all voters now regard radical Islamic terrorism as a serious threat to the United States. This includes 73% who say it is a Very Serious one, up 23 points from 50% in October of last year.
The ad was roundly ridiculed as “tone-deaf,” “insulting to the American voter’s intelligence” and “just plain stupid” by conservative blogger Alex Griswold. Atlanta radio host and RedState editor Erick Erickson pleaded with the Democrats to “run this ad over and over with a side of gun control ads.”
If a single video could possibly illustrate how out of touch and isolated DNC leaders, in their liberal cocktail party circle and university ivory towers, are with the rest of America, this is it.
