Overboard Campaign Ads

Check out this campaign ad this is way extreme.  One question I have to ask those extremist Republicans who aired this ad:

What the heck were you thinking?

I have a few major problems with this piece of total propaganda.  The first I’ll name here is that what good does it do.  It makes racist, extremist comments about Democrats and it would only be a turn-off to potential voters, both Democrats and Republicans.  Wouldn’t you want to sway the people towards you not downright insult the potential audience.  Secondly, even though Maryland has the highest black population of a non-southern state 71%  of the citizens are white.  I’m sure it’s appealing to these people to be insulted in such a way.  Christians were in the KKK, and they had a lot more to do with it than Democrats and they aren’t blaming Christians.  Thirdly, there’d be public outrage if a group of Caucasian Democrats accused the Republicans of starting a group of African-Americans racist against whites.  Yet, there will be no outcry about this.  It’s the way life is.  Am I being to harsh?  I don’t think so.  I’m not racist, I’m white, I’m Christian, so don’t take offense.  If you consider the facts I think you’ll agree with me on this one.  By the way, I’ll be trying to delve more into politics in my future blogs.
