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.
Josh Hawley Introduces Resolution Against China’s New National Security Law to Punish Hong Kong
Hawley is focusing intently on the red menace.
Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) introduced a resolution on Thursday to oppose China’s new national security law meant to punish Hong Kong and quash their ongoing rebellion against the totalitarian communist state.
— Josh Hawley (@HawleyMO) May 21, 2020
Hawley has long been an advocate of Hong Kong freedom protesters throughout their struggle against Chinese tyranny, which has been sidelined in large part due to the ever-so-convenient Wuhan virus outbreak. Hawley visited Hong Kong last year to talk to the people on the ground and gave a rousing floor speech highlighting their historic struggle.
He said during his speech: “I want to share something that the reverend Chu Yiu-ming said about liberty about democracy. He says it so beautifully. These are his words: “We strive for democracy because democracy strives for freedom and equality and universal love. Political freedom is more than loyalty to a state. Political freedom professes human dignity. Every single person living in a community possesses unique potentials and unique powers capable of making a unique contribution to society.”’
“That’s extraordinary and he’s exactly right, and Hongkonger’s know it, and that’s what they’re standing for, and that’s what they’re fighting for,” Hawley added. “And, Mr. President, the people of Hong Kong deserve our support, and they are depending on our support.”
China announced yesterday that they were passing a edict meant to crush dissent in Hong Kong, with no input allowed from the city itself. China has paid lip service regarding Hong Kong’s autonomy for decades, but they are now removing the facade completely.
“Beijing has opted for the most risky route,” said Ho-Fung Hung, who works as a professor of international relations for Johns Hopkins University. “It will show the world that ‘one country, two systems’ is, if not already over, almost over.”
“It will be very difficult for anyone, especially the United States, to say Hong Kong is still autonomous and viable,” Hung added.
China is denying that they are taking control over Hong Kong and putting out communist propaganda that their Draconian power-grab will actually improve relations.
“We will ensure the long-term stability of ‘one country, two systems,’ ” said Wang Yang, leader of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, which convenes every year to advise the Chinese government.
“We will continue to support the improvement of the implementation of the systems and mechanisms of the constitution and Basic Law,” he added.
It is unlikely that anyone is willing to believe the Chinese lip service at this point. Hawley is also calling on the globalist United Nations to pass a resolution condemning China’s behavior as well.
