While Rick Perry’s Dec. 6 YouTube video declares he will fight against “Obama’s war on religion” YouTubers declared war on Perry’s latest YouTube campaign.
With 180,524 dislikes and 3,900 likes, at the time of publication, chron.com reported that the comments left by those who watched the Texas governor’s video urged viewers to flag it as “inappropriate, hateful speech toward a protected group of people.”
In the ad, Perry suggests that allowing gays to openly serve in the military is what is wrong with our country because our children are still not allowed to openly pray in schools.
News.cnet.com reported that turning off the voting feature on YouTube is extremely easy and wondered why “someone running for the presidential nomination of a major American political party” did not have a tech team clever enough to turn off the feature which can make their boss look bad.
In an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, Perry stood behind his ad and feels “very comfortable with that ad…The values that I learned in my Christian upbringing will affect my governing.”
