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:
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.
