They are circulating it for "a Friday afternoon laugh".
Well, I for one am not laughing.
I have sent the following message to GetUp Media Manager:
- I thoroughly disapprove of your "Spoof Election Video". I know it is going viral and is on the News, but that is a bad thing, not a good thing.
- I jknow why you are trying to do this - to help get young people to enrol, so they can vote.
- But this "Spoof Ad" legitimises gun violence, and worse, takes it out of the world of "fantasy" and introduces gun violence into the real world of the Australian Political Forum.
- Please stop that Video immediately.

If you object, as I do, kindly let them know.
GetUp, who "live by the sword" of the media, ought respond to media criticism.
Let's hope so.
What would GetUp say if in the forthcoming election, someone attempted to assassinate any Politician?
They ought all resign.
Already people are throwing eggs.
And GetUP thinks this Ad is "a Friday Laugh"?
I strongly disagree.
