LBJ’s “Daisy Girl” Returns 52 Years Later In Hillary Ad Which Questions Trump’s Nuclear Stance [VIDEO]

The Arizona Republican reports:

Monique Luiz, the Phoenix resident who 52 years ago starred in the most famous, or infamous, political TV commercial of all time, is back in a new ad for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. In 1964, Luiz was the three-year-old tot plucking the petals from a daisy in a haunting black-and-white spot for President Lyndon Johnson. Her counting turned into a missile countdown and the ad concluded with an atomic blast and mushroom cloud. The ad was intended to reinforce Democratic attacks on Republican challenger Barry Goldwater, a U.S. senator from Arizona, as a warmonger who could not be trusted with the nuclear arsenal.

The original “Daisy” ad, officially titled “Peace, Little Girl” as produced by the New York agency Doyle Dane Bernbach, only aired once, on NBC, on Sept. 7, 1964. But it is still considered an all-time classic and has spawned countless knockoffs. The “Daisy Girl,” now all grown up, returns with a similar warning that Donald Trump, the 2016 Republican nominee, does not have the temperament to serve as commander-in-chief.

    And may she do to Drümpf what she did to Goldwater!…

    • Reality.Bites

      If Goldwater was alive he’d be voting for Clinton too.

      • Steverino

        Michael Reagan, of all people, said several weeks ago that he likely won’t vote for anyone for president, and if his stepmother Nancy Reagan were still alive, he’s pretty sure she would vote for Hillary.

        This is what Goldwater thought about what might happen, which it did to the RNC….

          In many cases, “Conservative” as a political stance used to be much more similar in meaning to “conservative” as an adjective.

          I can agree with a broken clock twice daily.

    Anyone who believes the devastation of “bombing the shit out of” someone won’t have dire consequence for the bombers themselves, is not paying attention.
    Case in point:
    The current state of American War mongering.
    So close and not very far away.

      Aw, thanks! We do need pics like this on a regular, and frequent, basis these days.

        That was my dog Fleanne – 1999- 2011

          Lovely! I’m sorry for your loss – those are the years I had my Martha. I still miss her so.

        • JCF

          Aw. Is that pronounced “Fleen” or “Flea-Anne”? ;-/

          She was beautiful! I know you miss her.

  • Mike Solo

    Given her name, I wonder if trump would try to deport her.

    The Shrieking Cheeto would probably nuke North Korea, thinking the little red button was to summon room service.

      More likely South. Donnie loves dictators.

    I find it odd that ad was then considered an “infamous” bombshell. We were so naive and polite. I also find it,.. I’m afraid to use the word “ironic” anymore, but y’kno that thing, that this was an attack ad by Lyndon Johnson on Sept 7, 1964, exhorting us to love each other when following the election in which it was used, Johnson escalated the Vietnam War under the Tonkin Resolution – which passed exactly one month before the ad aired.

    A declaration of war against Russia is a much better way to go.

    If she wins and goes to war with Russia – YOU OWN IT. I already did my service over there. I’m not going to get drafted.

    Your kids and grand-kids might though. So go grab a gun or set your loved ones up in ROTC. I hear the Citadel in Charleston, SC is a nice military prep college.

    You ignore warnings from military leaders

    and peace envoys who are directly involved in on the ground ops

    but you eat up all the propaganda from disconnected entities and war mongers. Go ahead and play along with John “bomb bomb bomb Iran” McCain.

    You call yourselves liberals? Phil Ochs was right. Most of you are from the Phil Ochs and Pete Segar generation too. Where’s the pushback against Clinton on this? Where are the activists? Why are you buying this bullshit and you know it is.

    Then you bring GOLDWATER into this while praising the Goldwater Girl candidate. HA HA CHARADE YOU ARE!

    When it comes for times like Korea, there’s no one more red, white, and blue eh?
    I love you, Liberals.

    • You talk like Russia is the only nation the U.S. might ever go to war with, when in fact we’ve never been at war with them.

      Meanwhile, the U.S. has been involved in a number of Asian and Middle Eastern wars in recent years — and THOSE are the countries Trump wants to nuke.

      Trump is the warmonger with no human empathy whatsoever, who’ll gladly send other people’s kids to die in senseless wars, because some foreign leader tweeted something mean at him. That isn’t Clinton and never has been. Get some perspective already.
