    So this congressman denounced the ad. I’m assuming then it was run without his knowledge.

    There are ads that are ran by PACs without the person they are endorsing's knowledge. Will have to read further. If it was on radio, probably a fringe one. These can do more harm than good in a lot of cases.

    But when white people create a website “White Americans for Presidents Agenda”, they would be labeled as racist and white supremacist.
    I’ve only lived in US for 27 years, but I still can’t wrap my head around so much stupidity, hatred and separation among people based on the skin of their color.

    And US, with all it’s issues, is so eager to bring democracy to the rest of the world. Sometimes, I miss the good old fashioned Joseph Stalin’s Iron Fist. No mother choosing sexual identity for their child as soon as it’s born, and no Kardashian’s. I’m not saying Stalin or Communism is good, but it does have its benefits once a week.

    I read differently. You left out it involves a nut.

    If you are a fan of the Boondocks cartoons, think Uncle Ruckus.







    ...And yes, the ads are still racist as :mad:, despite the PAC owner's race.

    LOL. I wasn't going to go there. I figured it was kinda obvious from the content of the radio ad. Frankly, I cannot remember ever coming across a political ad that was so over the top crazy. At least the GOP candidate had the spine and ethics to denounce it in unequivocal terms.
