Joe Biden Hires Creator of Twisted, Fear-Mongering Virginia Ad

Cristobal Alex created an ad about Trump supporters running down minority children in trucks.

Joe Biden has hired the creator of a sick and twisted political ad in which a Trump supporter is depicted mowing down minority children in a truck.

Politico reported that Biden’s pre-campaign structure had brought on Cristobal Alex, formerly of the Latino Victory Fund. Alex tweeted about leaving the Hispanic political association on Tuesday, aligning with reports that he was joining Biden’s political campaign.

Tom Perez, the Chair of the Democratic National Committee, also paid homage to Alex, who apparently remains an uncontroversial figure in liberal circles despite his history of fringe propaganda.

The political operative is most known for an ad the Latino Victory Find created and circulated during the Virginia gubernatorial election in 2017. The minute long-ad, which displayed a truck with ‘MAGA’ and Ed Gillespie bumper stickers chasing and running over Hispanic and Muslim children, was pulled from airwaves in response to a backlash over its sensational and defamatory content.

Watch for yourself:

Cristobal Alex, the President of LVF at the time, refused to apologize for the shameless fearmongering of the ad.

The Chairman of the Virginia GOP, Jack Wilson, has slammed Biden for hiring the political operative with suspect advertising practices.

Biden’s onboarding of Alex could be a sign that the old man of the Democratic Party could be seeking to appeal to a newer generation of liberals who intensely value identity politics. The former Vice President is all-but-set to announce his campaign for the Presidency despite being 76, having received a blessing from his family to go ahead with the rigorous campaign. His age would mean he’d be the oldest President to take office should he win the election.

President Donald Trump Will Move the 2020 Republican Convention Out of North Carolina

The state had interfered in the convention.

Published

President Donald Trump confirmed that he will move the 2020 Republican Convention away from Charlotte, North Carolina in a series of tweets Tuesday night. The state’s Democratic governor, Roy Cooper, had refused to allow the Republican Party to conduct the event at full capacity, citing supposedly necessary coronavirus social distancing restrictions.

The event was slated to be held in late August, well after the apex of the national coronavirus epidemic. Cooper still refused to allow the Republican Party to proceed with its plans to hold a full-sized major party political convention.

The loss of the Republican convention is set to cost North Carolina millions of dollars in revenue for the state’s economy. Major party conventions are regularly sought by governors and mayors, but it appears that Cooper’s desire to restrict the GOP convention overrode his desire for the benefits of the event.

The President had earlier been threatening to move the convention if North Carolina failed to give the Republican Party the green light to proceed in organizing for its convention as planned.

Sources indicate that GOP officials are already scouting out potential alternative locations for the party’s convention. Early reports suggest that either Arizona or Florida could be selected as possible replacement locations for the event, with both states set to be competitive electoral battlegrounds in the fall presidential election.

Arizona Republican Debbie Lesko called for the RNC to move the convention to her Glendale-area district, and Arizona Governor Doug Ducey has suggested that the state would be willing to welcome the President and Republicans across the country for the crucial political event.
