Entirely unconvincing. The Soviets were famous for their unsophisticated (indeed, ham fisted) propaganda, like this:
This is from the 1960s. By the 1980s the Soviets had gotten more desperate, and more clueless. They aired "Dallas" to show the decadence of the United States. Viewers behind the Iron Curtain didn't care about the decadence, they thought that all the big houses, flashy cars, and other parts of the Western World were pretty dang cool.
The Soviet propaganda organs didn't understand just how incompetent they were, until it all collapsed. I see this same thing in the Media's relentless anti-gun agenda. For the same reason.
The Soviet Propaganda organs hired not for talent but for political reliability. The Media today mirrors this. What that means is that you have clueless, untalented people making the propaganda that you just saw here, and that you see every day on the nightly news.*
And the people here aren't buying it, any more than the Soviet people were buying it when Dallas aired. As a matter of fact, some people look at today's ignorant anti-gun screeds and think "You know, I need to get a gun" (thus, the spike in concealed carry permit applications and the panic buying of guns and ammunition). Polls about gun control aren't showing any increase in support for the idea, even after a kindergarten was shot up. The quite crude level of propaganda is no doubt part of that. It is entirely unconvincing.
So well done MSM! If you were less obvious (and had more talent) I'd be a lot more worried.
* Yeah, I know that nobody watches that any more. Work with me here.
