Democrats release racist campaign ad against Allen West
Just when you thought desperate Democrats couldn’t sink any lower than claiming Mitt Romney was a felon who also caused a woman to die from cancer they manage to lower the political limbo bar and dance right under it without any problem.
This time the target is Allen West: American Sunrise PAC released a racist ad showing Allen West in a boxing ring beating up white women and stealing money from black families. This is nothing short of despicable and today Allen West responded to this attack:
I spent my life in uniform fighting for our great nation and protecting all Americans. The ad being run against me by my opponent’s family depicting violence against women and senior citizens is reprehensible. It plays on stereotypes and fear to divide Americans, and it cheapens the very real and tragic occurrences of violence against women and seniors. The American people are suffering from crushing debt, horrific tax and regulatory policies, and epic unemployment. This classless ad shows a lack of regard for the issues plaguing our nation. This ad reflects the sad state of politics in our Republic with those who seek to destroy a person’s character to cover for their lack of intellectual ability and integrity.
A brilliant response from Allen West and Mitt Romney would do well to take notice of how to properly respond to this type of attack.
Democrats are likely to defend this ad by claiming it was simply a metaphor for Republicans and their goal to protect the rich by hurting the middle class and the poor. They will claim there is no racism involved here and they will claim Republicans are trying to drum up a false controversy.
I would ask anyone who tries to defend this ad to ask themselves what they would be saying if the Republicans ran an ad that depicted Barack Obama beating up white women and stealing money. I have a feeling we know what they would be saying.
