A Virginia man has “fixed” the bizarre anti-Ed Gillespie ad that portrayed his supporters as violent racists who attack minority children — and it is perfect.
In the remake of the ad, John Skjult of Virginia clipped the footage of a truck with Confederate imagery and a “Gillespie for governor” bumper sticker chasing the kids and replaced it with a Home Depot truck being driven by an Islamic terrorist.
As the truck approaches the frightened children who are attempting to flee, the driver is heard screaming “Allahu Akbar” before a boy awakens from the nightmare. The updated video is a reference to the Halloween terrorist attack in New York City in which eight people were killed by an ISIS supporter driving a rented Home Depot truck.
The Latino Victory Fund (LVF) pulled the shockingly tasteless ad less than two days after releasing it, in response to the Halloween terror attack.
Skjult titled his remake, “What if that awful Ralph Northam campaign ad told the truth?”
When asked by Big League Politics what inspired him to remake the ad, Skjult said that “the Latino Victory Fund ad was so patently awful that I felt it demanded an answer. The horrific tragedy in NYC provided that answer.”
“I’m a dad who drives a minivan with the ‘Don’t tread on me’ Virginia license plate – that was probably my trigger point. I get creative when offended,” Skjult added.
Though the ad was widely condemned by people on both sides of the aisle, Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez defended the ad on Sunday during an appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
“Aren’t you stereotyping?” host Chuck Todd asked Perez. “I drive a pickup truck. Are all pickup truck drivers racist? Do you understand why some people think the ad implies that?”
The Democratic Party leader brushed off criticism however, claiming that the people who are offended by the ad were crying “crocodile tears.”
“Ed Gillespie, throughout the campaign, has been dividing people,” Perez said. “When you hit the bully back and the bully starts crying, those are crocodile tears to me.”
The people of Virginia will head to the ballot boxes to cast their votes on Tuesday, in what is expected to be a very close race.
Both former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon and President Donald Trump have thrown their support behind Gillespie.
Mitch McConnell Preparing Exit Strategies, Potential Successors in Advance of Possible Retirement
Will Mitch retire?
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has reportedly created a shortlist of potential successors, with the establishment Republican considering a possible retirement before his term ends. McConnell was reelected to another Senate term in 2020, and the Intercept broke the news of his retirement considerations on Thursday.
Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron is reportedly McConnell’s first pick for his successor. Former UN Ambassador Kelly Craft and Kentucky Secretary of State Michael Adams are also possible replacements. McConnell, 79, has served as a Kentucky Senator since 1985.
Kentucky law currently would allow Governor Andy Beshear- a Democrat- to appoint McConnell’s successor if he retired. However, McConnell is pushing for the Republican state legislature to pass reforms allowing them to select replacements for Senators who have resigned. McConnell’s quiet boosting of legislative reforms to appoint interim Senators led to the reports of his potential retirement, although it’s unclear when he plans to leave the picture.
McConnell largely alienated the Republican Party with a forceful denunciation of former President Donald Trump during the second sham impeachment trial targeting the President, although he declined to vote to convict the President on the basis of legality. A Republican candidate in the mold of McConnell’s 20th century style would have a difficult time winning a Kentucky GOP primary, and McConnell’s appointed pick may start off in such an election with a considerable handicap. In addition, the legacy Senator remains popular in Kentucky, although at least one county party censured him for his betrayal of Trump in January.
