Brady Campaign is hiring

I ran across this today and even though I know the Brady Campaign folks live in an alternate reality that only occasionally intersects with ours I was still taken aback:

The mission of the Brady organization and its Million Mom March is to create a safer America by cutting gun deaths in half by 2025.

One might claim they are delusional since more than half of “gun deaths” are suicides and it is extremely unlikely they can come up with idea to reduce those significantly, let alone get it implemented. And most of the murders are by gangs who, as part of their “business”, traffic in banned goods already. For them to get a gun is never going to more difficult than it is for the average high school dropout to get the recreation drug of their choice. Which means they probably can get a gun within an hour, 24×7, any day of the year.

I can’t imagine the management of the Brady Campaign doesn’t already know the goal is completely unfeasible. Hence, they are deliberately lying. It’s nothing new.

Then we have this:

Brady is in search of a National Communications Director to lead its communications strategies to drive the national conversation on gun violence prevention (GVP). This position will oversee all external communications, serve internal clients (development, organizing, legal and policy functions) in their communications needs, respond to media inquiries and develop and lead aggressive and proactive earned media strategies to build awareness of Brady’s work. This is a unique opportunity to contribute to an issue and organization of historic importance and shape the national discourse on reducing gun violence in the United States.

To apply, email cover letter and résumé to search@bradymail.org mentioning “National Communications Director” in the subject line.

Responsibilities:

  • Develop and implement communications strategies for the organization to effectively communicate Brady’s work and message as part of the national dialogue on gun violence prevention.
  • Oversee all external communications on behalf of Brady
  • Respond to media inquiries and develop proactive strategies to increase awareness of Brady’s work in traditional and new/social media outlets.

Qualifications:

  • Bachelor’s degree required; related graduate degree desirable.
  • Experience with, passion for and knowledge of the GVP issue desirable.
  • At least 8 years of direct experience in positions with communications responsibility, with considerable experience as a media relations and strategic communications professional and manager required.
  • Experience in public policy, nonprofit, or advocacy campaigns at the state or federal level desirable.
  • Proven experience managing a comprehensive communications team drafting, editing, and overseeing material production including, but not limited to, press releases, fact sheets, social media posts, and op-eds.
  • Proven ability to guide communications strategy, execution and delivery to raise profile of organization.
  • Ability to synthesize and summarize large amounts of information and to focus quickly on the essence of an issue, as well as to identify, understand, and address different policy perspectives.
  • Strong writing skills and willingness to participate in execution of communications tactics when needed to ensure success of initiatives.
  • Confident in presenting one’s own ideas and diplomatically persuading others as appropriate.
  • Ability to work professionally and collegially within a creative, fast-paced culture that demands excellence and emphasizes teamwork.
  • Demonstrated time and project management skills, including an ability to meet multiple deadlines by maintaining a high level of organization. Ability to set priorities and identify resources.
  • Ability to work independently with limited supervision.
  • Flexible and able to routinely juggle multiple competing priorities and work in teams of both support and senior staff to meet project goals.

Odd. They don’t mention anything about “must be willing to be delusional or adopt a culture of lies and deception and violate Federal law.”

  1. Hmmm…..maybe an opportunity to plant a mole? I’d think as long as the outgoing press releases didn’t have Smith & Wesson ads and bold face type proclaiming “Buy a Gun Today – They’re Great! and had the usual libtard blather no one at Brady would notice. The benefit to us would be consuming a high salary without effective benefit to them. Assuming they have any money left, of course.

    • I was thinking something similar, but not a mole. We are fortuitous in our quality of enemies and I would gladly and sincerely work for them to help them continue their “success”.

    • “Assuming they have any money left, of course.”

      I think that’s the big factor, the money going into the anti-gun world has been proven to be a small number donors giving large donations overall.

      Now that Bloomberg has made such a large footprint of himself and has diversified into Everytown and Moms Demand,as well as now having grabbed the celebrity endorsements that’s been hard competition for the Brady Campaign and The Joyce Foundation.

      The Brady Campaign is willing to risk the bad PR of standing idly by as their Employees and pawns, The Phillips Family, File for bankruptcy so they can avoid paying for the Lucky Gunner Lawsuit they never should have filed….and they ONLY filed because their employer urged them to do it.

      Brady could make themselves look like Heroes by discharging the debt (Really paying what is due as it was a Brady Lawsuit from day zero) but they don’t have the funds to foot the bill.

      Planting a Mole in the Brady Campaign is like sending a torpedo at a sinking ship.

  2. “Ability to synthesize and summarize large amounts of information and to focus quickly on the essence of an issue…”

    I had to chuckle at that. I guess the word “synthesize” makes it OK, being synonymous with “fabricate”– They make up their own “information” and then go from that.

    It could be a pretty fun job, Joe. I’m sure you meet all of their qualifications, so long as you’re willing to fabricate information. You might have to take a pay cut though.

    Seriously; think of how much fun it would be to do that job; pure sarcasm all day every day. That could be downright awesome, if you played it right and kept it fun.

  3. Huh. No knowledge of firearms is required. I wonder if they just make things up when they talk about guns.

  4. I heard the way to get out of jury duty is to state you will unflinchingly look at the facts with absolute impartiality. While it sounds ideal, attorneys hate that attitude. Dismissed.

    Do the same with a Brady position application. They are the Fake Gun Violence Media and will reject your application.

    It makes the point though.

  5. The so-called “Million Mom March” was wholly controlled and funded by Hillary Clinton when she was the First Lady. It’s titular head was Donna Dees-Thomases, sister-in-law of Hillary’s adviser and personal attorney Susan Thomases.

    Just about a month and a half after the Clinton’s left the White House, the “Million Mom March” laid off 80% of its work force. At the 2001 march, they managed to get just 200 people to show up in Washington DC, compared to 750,000 in 2000 when Hillary was First Lady. I guess it helps when you have people like then-Richmond mayor, future running mate Tim Kaine illegally using public funds to bus in protesters.

    By October 2001, the Million Mom March, starved of cash, evaporated and its trademark was handed over to The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Ownership.

    This would be an interesting topic for some FOIA requests, communications between Hillary Clinton and Susan Thomases about the Million Mom March, along with any related financial records.

  7. Do they still own the name “Handgun Control, Inc?
    That sounds like a good name for a school, a la gun sight and Front sight.
