A group supporting Democrat Ralph Northam in the Virginia gubernatorial race has unleashed a racist attack in an inflammatory new video ad that purports to tie Republican Ed Gillespie to white supremacists.
In the video, a white man driving a pickup is shown chasing several minority children through a neighborhood. The pickup is adorned with a Confederate flag, a Gillespie bumper sticker and a “Don’t Tread on Me” license plate. The children running from the truck include two Hispanic boys, a black boy and a Muslim girl in a hijab.
The children run into an alley and attempt to climb a fence as the truck charges them, but one of them wakes up to reveal the ordeal to be a nightmare before the vehicle hits them.
“Is this what Donald Trump and Ed Gillespie mean by the American dream?” a voiceover asks while a couple is shown watching footage of white supremacists marching in Charlottesville, Virginia.
The ad was produced by the Latino Victory Fund, a left-wing political action committee whose stated mission is “growing Latino political power by increasing Latino representation at every level of government – from the school board to the Senate to the White House.” (Read more from “GOP Voters Depicted as Racists Chasing Minority Kids” HERE)
