Whedon, who describes himself as a liberal and a feminist and publically backs LGBT rights, including gay marriage, is seen stocking up on canned goods as if preparing for a disaster, as he explains his decision to shift his alliegiance from President Obama.
“Mitt Romney is a very different kind of candidate. One with the vision and determination to cut through the business as usual politics and finally put this country back on the path to the zombie apocalypse,” he says.
“Romney’s ready to make the deep rollbacks in healthcare, education, social services and reproductive rights that will guarantee poverty, unemployment, overpolulation disease and rioting. All crucial elements in creating a nightmare zombie wasteland.”
But it is Romney’s support for “ungoverned corporate privilege” that Whedon predicts will plunge the economy into “true insolvency and chaos”.
Musing that no one can predict whether the zombie hordes will be the old school shuffling kind or the speedier type from 28 Days Later, he says: “The 1% won’t be the very rich. It will be the very fast,”
The director adds: “Mitt’s not afraid to face a ravening grasping hoard of subhumans – because that’s how he sees poor people already.”
Whedon’s video is the latest in a series of celebrity election endorsements. Lena Dunham, creator of HBO’s Girls, appears in an Obama campaign ad in which she urges young women who are first time voters to lose their election virginity to “someone who really cares about women”.
The clip, entitled The First Time, provoked outrage from conservative commentators, who described as ‘tasteless’ and ‘disgusting’.
Actor Samuel L Jackson also stars in a rhyming bedtime story in which he tells Obama supporters to “Wake The Fuck Up” and support the Democrat campaign.
The Obama campaign targeted young women yesterday with an insulting and degrading ad equating voting for Obama with losing one’s virginity. Conservative women are fed up with being viewed as little more than a collection of lady parts and are fighting back.
Concerned Women for America is out with a new campaign that smacks down OFA’s “Your First Time” ad and its insinuation that American women care only about access to free birth control and abortion on demand. With the “Lady Smarts,” campaign, CWA shines the spotlight on what really matters to women: jobs and the economy.
Washington, D.C. — In response to the Obama campaign’s “Your First Time” ad featuring Lena Dunham, Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee CEO and President Penny Nance announced the launch of the “Lady Smarts” campaign. “Lady Smarts” seeks to dispel the liberal notion that women are monolithic voters and are only concerned about free contraception and abortion. “Lady Smarts” refutes liberal efforts to distract from the real concerns of voters by alleging a phony “war on women” and highlights the fact that women’s issues are everyone’s issues. Our major concerns this election are jobs and the economy.
“I’m saddened to see the liberal women of this country allow themselves to be painted into a corner and portrayed as single-minded and only concerned about getting free stuff,” Nance said. “I’ve traveled across this country and women of all backgrounds are telling me that this election is not just about their ovaries, they’re thinking about the overall picture of the economy.”
