Willie Horton 2

Der Spiegel, Trump in a white hood

It’s as if the Horton ad had been recast in a Latinx vein. This is pure racism. I think Rep. Steve King would blush, and that’s sayin’ sumpin’.

    Twitter is missing out on a fortune with all these political ads.

    Trump has made hate a participation sport again. Hate has always existed and always will, but now Trump and his Republican leaders can use it to get votes, to tell their followers that their party is more than happy to acquiesce to their demands to get rid of the “others”: the Jews, gays, immigrants, the poor. White Christians get preferential treatment and they want to be a permanent majority. Trump is teyong to give that to them.

    Vote like it’s the election of your lifetime. It very well could be.

    Wait, the Rs hold the White House, Senate and the House along with the judicial branch, which isn’t supposed to be partisan, and he says it’s outrageous what Democrats are doing to the country? Shouldn’t someone counter with “You’re in charge, bucko. This one’s on you!”

    Of course, if the Democrats ran an ad showing the Pittsburgh murderer with the tag line “the Republicans armed him” (at least as accurate as the tag line in the Republican ad), they would be banned from the MSM.

      We could try it, but can we say “the Republicans weaponized his hatred” or “… armed him with hatred” or similar?

        Thanks to Republicans (assisted by the NRA), he was allowed to purchase an AR-15 (one of those “so-called protection rifles”, as Jim Jeffries remarks)!

        I did not know that.
        I kind of wonder how this suggestion would play (I’m for it, by the way, but we shouldn’t have to limit to one strategy) vs. ads comparing this dude to the multiple folks that Republicans seem to keep calling fine people, comparing body counts. Gruesome, but I don’t care if it is effective.
        Start with Khashoggi, for example.
