The ad agency that produced the massively popular campaign ad for the recent Democratic primary of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez—Means of Production—has produced another one, this time for a Democratic primary candidate in Hawai’i.: Kaniela Ing. The new ad echoes many of the themes of the previous one: health care for all, free college, affordable housing, a green jobs program; but also adds an Hawai’in element. Both are also upbeat, positive and unapologetically progressive. Both stress that the key to obtaining progressive goals is people power and political will. Although Ing faces much tougher odds, let’s hope the similarities extend to outcomes, as well.
Since our platform is about expressing ideas and ideals instead of cash flow, clicks, or fundraising, we have the freedom to include a wide range of topics and formats that might not work elsewhere. We don’t need or want paid content, promotional materials, or story lines designed to please donors.
So the idea here is to present videos one or more of the editors feel speaks to them. Sometimes it will be news. Sometimes it will be history. And a lot of the time it will be culture. You can not and should not separate these things: it is diversity and intersectionality that makes our movement strong.
