This may arguably be one of the most extreme ways to garner attention ever.
Instead of focusing on the issues and discussing the differences between you and your political opponent, the Democrats are looking to start another race war to solidify their grip on power.
It comes as no shock that Democrats will stoop this low. By making false accusations of this magnitude, it’s no wonder Republican lawmakers often experience violence at the hands of far-left domestic terrorists!
Let’s face it: The Democrats are desperate. They know all too well that their messaging does not resonate with the American voters. However, they also fully understand the ‘race issue’ and how it arouses anger across the political spectrum.
Democrat Senate candidate Charles Booker is seeking to unseat Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul in the most callous and cheap way possible.
Booker released a campaign ad on Thursday that took the internet by storm, which was his entire intention in the first place. The video shows Booker wearing a noose as he bashes Sen. Paul for opposing a 2020 bill that would’ve made lynching a federal hate crime.
You can watch the video below, but we’re warning you, it’s incredibly stupid:
The purpose of the video was to arouse race-based anger directed at Sen. Paul, and, lest we forget, the Kentucky Republican already experienced political violence toward him by the left on multiple occasions.
Meanwhile, Booker’s video completely misrepresented the facts.
In fact, Dr. Paul worked with a group of bipartisan Senators to strengthen the language of the anti-lynching bill and is the co-sponsor of a separate bill that ensures federal law will define lynching as a heinous crime.
Sen. Paul objected to the initial 2020 anti-lynching bill because he believed the language needed to be more precise.
“We want the bill to be stronger,” Paul said.
“If you’re gonna call something an anti-lynching bill, but you’re gonna have a new conspiracy charge for someone who has minor bruising, we don’t think that’s appropriate,” he added.
The new bill co-sponsored by Sens. Paul, Booker, and Scott was passed unanimously and signed into law by Joe Biden.
The video is pure sensationalist garbage and in no way represents how Sen. Paul and the GOP approached violent crime.
