Virginia Governor’s Race Goes Nasty With Race-baiting Ad by Democrats
The Virginia Governor’s race turned nasty when Democrat liberal Ralph Northam supporters at the “LVF Latino Victory Fund” created an ad with a pickup truck that had a Confederate Flag, campaign sticker, and a “Don’t Tread on Me” license plate chasing down a group of children of difference races. Fortunately, the DNC came to their senses and had the ad pulled. But Ralph Northam did not distance himself from the ad when it was put up. The ad inferred that the Republican opponent, Ed Gillespie was a racist, Neo-Nazi, KKK, right wing extremist.
Ed Gillespie is running for Virginia Governor, and has been attempting to have debate on the issues- tearing down Confederate Monuments, Sanctuary cities, etc. But he says that his opponent refuses to debate those issues, just attacks and smears him.
“The fact is, whether you disagree with people or not, in Virginia, we respect civil discourse and this is a new low in politics here. It’s a sad day. I was glad when a couple of the Democratic members of our House Delegates yesterday condemned the ad, but outrageously my opponent has embraced it, and it reveals a disdain not just for more supporters but for all Virginians, frankly, who want to have a discussion about issues and policies in this election that I’ve been focused on…They [Northam campaign] don’t want to debate the issues, and instead of debating the issues, they just demonize, they vilify, they marginalize anyone who disagrees with them.” Ed Gillespie to Fox and Friends
In case you’re wondering, that’s the time-worn tactic of leftists and straight out of Saul Alinksy’s Marxist playbook.
RULE 12: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.”
Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. (This is cruel, but very effective. Direct, personalized criticism and ridicule works.) Saul Alinsky Rules for Radicals
Virginia has been at the forefront of American history since day one. Are Virginians all leftists? Do they really agree with not working with ICE on illegal immigrants who commit crimes? Will they reject the Marxist/Communist tactics? Do they really want Republicans targeted as racist bigots who want to harm children? If they want to remove the vilification of every Republican and Trump-supporter, then perhaps they should vote for Ed Gillespie on November 7.
