The Virginia governor’s race between Democrat incumbent Ralph Northam and GOP challenger Ed Gillespie is heating-up. These men are polar opposites on every major issue today, including illegal immigration and the DACA program. But, rather than use facts to support his position, Northam is going low–below the belt low.
Northam’s newest attack is a minute-long advertisement titled, American Nightmare. Suffice it to say, a nightmare is exactly what this ad is. It starts out with a white male driving a black pick-up truck. The truck has a Confederate flag flying on the back, a “Don’t Tread on Me” license plate, and a “Gillespie for Governor” bumper sticker.
Even worse, the pick-up is shown chasing minority children through the streets. The driver makes his way toward the scared children who subsequently shout, “Run! Run! Run!” when they see the truck. The children finally end-up trapped against a chain-link fence and then it cuts to a boy waking up in his bedroom. His experience was a nightmare.
The ad concludes with a narrator asking: “Is this what Donald Trump and Ed Gillespie mean by the ‘American Dream?’”
To put it mildly, it’s vile, disturbing, and heartbreaking. Its point is to portray Trump supporters as racist child killers. This ad is morally reprehensible.
Nevertheless, this is the progressive narrative. Their “American Dream” consists of open borders, anarchy in the streets, and a big, generous government.
White conservatives, symbols of history, and acts of patriotism have no place in their world. And God? Forget about it. They kneel only in protest and whine when someone kneels in prayer.
The Real Nightmare
Interestingly, the ad was paid for by the Latino Victory Fund. The group backs Northam because of his support for sanctuary cities. According to LVF, Gillespie unfairly labels minorities as violent. “The Gillespie campaign has consistently promoted a false narrative painting Latinos as criminals and gang members,” they wrote on Twitter.
Last time we checked, Trump supporters are not chasing innocent children through the streets of America. On the contrary, we have an issue with illegal immigrants raping and murdering innocent American citizens, including children.
