Smear Ad: If You're Not a Democrat, You Must Be a Racist Murderer

It's hard to decide what words to use to describe the latest attack ad being pushed by Democrats to incite fear-based voting from their electorate. Political lines have never been more clearly defined — if you are anything but a Democrat, you are a racist murderer that wants to mow down non-white children.

The ad, paid for by the Latino Victory Fund, smears gubernatorial candidate Ed Gillespie (R-VA) and his supporters as proponents of the so-called "American nightmare." It insinuates that Gillespie advocates for the Charlottesville attack and white supremacy marches even though he openly condemned the events.

The Federalist examines the ad's content:

The ad starts out with two children walking home from school. One is an African-American boy, the other is a girl wearing a hijab. A Latino-looking boy runs down the street. He’s being chased by a Confederate flag-flying pickup truck that bears an Ed Gillepsie bumper sticker and a Gadsden flag-themed license plate cover (“Don’t tread on me”).

The boy catches up to another boy playing basketball, who also appears to be of Hispanic background, and tells him to run. They catch up to the two children shown in the beginning of the ad and the group runs away from the truck that’s bearing down on them. The camera zooms in to the sticker with the Republican candidate’s name. All four children run through an alley and get to a chain-link fence. They’re cornered with nowhere else to run. They look back at the truck terrified as the headlights illuminate their faces.

The little boy suddenly jerks awake — it’s all a dream.

“Is this what Donald Trump and Ed Gillespie mean by the American dream?” a narrator asks while two parents watch news coverage of white nationalists carrying tiki-torches and marching in opposition to the removal of Confederate monuments in Charlottesville, Virginia.

The message the ad sends is simple: people who vote for Republicans are white nationalist types likely to go on murderous hunting sprees.

There can be no compromise, no conversation with the left when the premise begins by taking discussion off the table. Remember that this is how the opposition views you. 

Ironically, the Confederate flag was originally a Democratic symbol, one opposed by — you guessed it — the Republicans.

And still, the Democrats wonder why their power is eroding.

Stay alert. Stay alive.
