Protecting Liberty Documentary

NRA’s Billy Johnson wants to make a documentary:

The media-fed misperception about violence is a threat to our fundamental human freedoms.

You can check out the Kickstarter campaign here.

I’d watch it if it got funded that’s for sure.  Doesn’t look promising though when he needs about $175,000 in the next 9 days.  I don’t dispute that the $225,000 goal he has isn’t a realistic expectation of the cost… I just think people are so used to getting quality videos (visually anyway) now for free, they are hesitant to throw any money at people.  I know Billy would do this right… it’s just a shame he won’t do it for free and convince others to help him for free as well.

Here’s a promo video he made up a couple days ago for the Kickstarter:

AmidstTheNoise-YouTubeOh so whoever has the most money and most reach has an advantage?  Who would have thought? *sarcasm*

Sounds like a good plan to me to appeal to emotion… it’s obviously working decently for them so why change?  No one said this fight was going to be fair.  Only the smart ones figure out when someone is bullshitting them, and then they leave that camp (hopefully) for good.  How often do these emotional appeals and lies backfire?  I don’t know, but I do know the answer is “not often enough”.

Thoughts?

Why couldn’t he just have the NRA fund it?

Probably because “NRA funded” label would destroy his credibility in media for people who he tries to inform.

Normally I think kickstarter is a total scam to get equity and interest free financing. This is one project I can get behind. Let’s hope it wasn’t all a game to get us to open our wallets.
