Secure America Now is out with a new video campaign titled “Welcome to the Islamic State of France.” The national security nonprofit announced a six-figure buy on the new video – the first in a series of faux tourism videos that depict the year 2020 after a Hillary Clinton presidency, a world in which they predict ISIS and radical Islamic terrorism have taken over Western countries.
The point of this first video, which depicts France in four years, is to show what happens after the Islamic State takes over a country. In the video, which purposefully mimics the style of ISIS propaganda, “the country of France still exists, but there is a change, a new regime of culture,” says Josh Canter, a national spokesman for Secure America Now. “There is the shot of the Eiffel Tower at dawn and you barely notice that it has the Islamic crescent, then the [Islamic State] flags hanging from the Arc de Triomphe and the Mona Lisa in a burka.”
After watching the clip, users are then directed to another page where they are prompted to book their next vacation to the Islamic State of France.
While the nonprofit believes France will be the first Western country to fall under the new caliphate, it’s not stopping with this video, Canter said.
“We’re doing more, another one for Germany and another one eventually for America as we get closer to the election,” he added.
The plan is to release the video, produced by Harris Media, nationally, but to focus on targeting conservatives and moderates in Florida, North Carolina, and Nevada through Facebook and Google video promotion services.
Canter said those three states have Senate races where national security issues are pivotal.
