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.
California Democrat Harley Rouda Has a Restraining Order Against Him- Filed by His Own Mother!
That’s a new one!
A California freshman Democrat has a restraining order filed against him- by his own mother!
Harley Rouda, who represents California’s 48th Congressional district, has had a restraining order filed against him by his mother, Marlese Rouda, since 2011. View the document here. Rogue Review first reported on the bizarre legal development on Tuesday.
Rouda is legally restrained from “directly or indirectly harassing, annoying, interfering with, harassing by telephone, assaulting, or doing bodily harm, to Defendant, Marlese N. Rouda…”
Maybe a restraining order from an ex-girlfriend or wife is one thing, but it’s somewhat of a legal novelty to have a restraining order filed against you by your own mother. The order was granted by a judge in a Franklin County, Ohio Court Division of Domestic Relations, so it’s likely he engaged in poor behavior of some kind against his own mother.
An earlier clause in the restraining order bars Rouda from selling, destroying or taking possession of any household property belonging to his mother, suggesting the order might’ve been granted after Harley Rouda stole or sold some of his mother’s possessions.
Rouda is a freshman Democrat running for reelection in the Orange County District against Republican Orange County Supervisor Michelle Steel. California Republicans view the formerly red, now purple congressional seat as within their reach after a Republican retook the nearby 25th district in a special election earlier this year.
There might be some mothers who have second thoughts about voting for Rouda’s reelection, after finding out that he hasn’t exactly been the most loving son to his own mother.
