Secure America Now, a non-profit national security organization, has a new ad reminiscent of Lyndon Johnson's 1964 "Daisy" ad, updated for the security challenges of the modern era. Using the original ad's imagery of a little girl in a field and a massive explosion, the spot urges the United States to "stand up to terrorism" and "not let the jihadist government of Iran get a nuclear bomb." Watch the video below:

Here's more from Breitbart News:

Allen Roth, President of Secure America Now, told Breitbart News via email: "Daisy 2 is part of a digital campaign that will educate Americans on the dangers of a nuclear Iran and activate Secure America Now's grassroots army to demand policymakers listen to our concerns." 

The ad will direct viewers to a microsite,, where the public can learn about the Iranian regime's nuclear ambitions.

"Iran is not only the world's largest state sponsor of terror, they openly brag about providing Hamas with missile technology," Roth added. "Between rockets launched behind human shields in Gaza to Hamas guerrillas tunneling into Israel, America can no longer ignore how a nuclear Iran would further destabilize the world."
