Once again, Black folks have sounded the alarm on Trump. His campaign just released a racist ad that implied Democrats are “complicit with murders by illegal immigrants” amid a battle in Washington over the government shutdown, ABC News reported.
The ad is really no more than another horrific attempt at fear-mongering. His campaign insinuated that all undocumented immigrants are criminals to raise racial fears, perpetuate harmful stereotypes and win support for his wall. But folks are too smart to buy Trump’s trash argument.
MSNBC’s Joy Reid skillfully expressed her disgust with Trump’s latest attack ad.
The commercial shared similarities with the infamous “Revolving Door” ad by George H. W. Bush that attacked Democratic presidential candidate Michael Dukakis by playing on White fear. In trying to beat his opponent Dukakis in the 1988 election, Bush pointed out to Americans that Dukakis had supported a prison furlough program that he claimed bolstered the escape of an African-American convicted felon, Willie Horton. The ad was “deployed by George H.W. Bush to attack Michael Dukakis’ record on crime, helped to sink his candidacy with an appeal to the racial fears of white voters,” the AM Joy host said.
“You have Republicans who are literally going right back to the playbook of brown scare — it was black scare,” Reid added.
Democrats have also been blamed for the government shutdown. A White House message on its public comment telephone line blasted Democrats for “not making a deal that would keep the government funded and running” and holding the government “hostage,” The Hill reported.
The blame game, along with the hateful ad, just not going to fly.
“The American people are not going to accept the premise that immigrants are criminals and that we ought to deport the ‘Dreamers,’” Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois told ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos on “This Week” Sunday. “It doesn’t work.”
