Liberals Double Down On Gillespie Attacks — Who Are They Defending?
Yesterday, we showed you the latest Democratic smear ad campaign designed to paint VA gubernatorial candidate Ed Gillespie as a racist (and all non-Democrats at large as murderous heathens). Ever committed to their false narratives, leftists are doubling down on their claims.
ThinkProgress, a far-left media outlet known for running slam pieces without any sort of verification, released a new piece today attacking Gillespie — because he actually wants to do something about the rampant gang problems Virginia faces.
From the article:
How exactly do gangs like MS-13 get their recruits? The answer is simple: through illegal immigration.
While data is spotty largely thanks to Democratic suppression efforts, we know that a full 30% of border children have gang ties and 92% of MS-13 members arrested are in the country illegally. If this is the case, naturally the 'safest' place for these gang members is in areas where they can operate without fear of deportation — hence, the Sanctuary States.
ThinkProgress somehow manages to accuse Gillespie of using "exaggerated stereotypes" just after an attack ad represented non-Democrats as homicidal owners of trucks adorned with Confederate flags and Don't Tread On Me signs. Tell you what, lefties, you show us an actual Republican that drives around in their truck looking for black and brown children to murder — in the meantime, here's what MS-13 members look like:
But sure, we'll go with the stereotype line — it's not like the New Jersey Attorney General singles out MS-13 members as "heavily tattooed." For the record, out of the Bloods, Latin Kings and Crips, only MS-13 has that distinction. So if Gillespie is 'stereotyping,' he's most certainly correct.
No, not "Latino men." Just the ones in MS-13. They're in Virginia. And they're growing.
Stay alert. Stay alive.
