Davison says, “When this rifle is the one factor standing between your loved ones and a dozen offended Democrats in Klan hoods, you simply might have that semi-automatic.”
Somebody in all probability wants to inform Davison that the folks within the Klan hoods coming for his household gained’t be Democrats, however white individuals who most certainly voted for Donald Trump.
The explanation why Davison was capable of launch this advert with out being laughed at by all is that Fox Information and conservative media have spent many years making an attempt to persuade their viewers that Democrats are the actual racists.
Their “proof” is all the time that segregationists have been white Democrats within the South. Fox and different conservative media all the time miss the remainder of the historical past the place these voters flipped to the Republican Occasion after LBJ signed the Civil Rights Act and Richard Nixon courted them with racism in 1968.
For many years white supremacists and racists have been aligned with the proper.
The appropriate has warped and rewritten historical past to such a level that an African-American Home candidate can run an advert that’s so utterly distorted and but will probably be met with reward and nods of approval from Republicans.
