An Arkansas Republican Congressman just aired the most racist ad since Willie Horton

President Donald Trump’s embrace of naked racism and support for white supremacy has trickled down the ballot to races at all levels, and it is truly horrifying to behold.

A radio advertisement supporting Republican Rep. French Hill’s re-election bid in Arkansas’ 2nd District is making shockwaves on social media for its use of a racist, minstrel-style voice and for the appalling way it uses the sexual assault charges against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh to scare black voters into voting for the party of open racists.

The voiceover reads: “What do you think about what’s happening in Washington? Our Congressman, French Hill, and the Republicans KNOW that it’s dangerous to change the presumption of innocence to the presumption of guilt, especially for black men. If Democrats can do that to a white Justice of the Supreme Court with no evidence, no corroboration, and all of the witnesses including her best friend say it didn’t happen? What will happen to our sons, our fathers, our husbands when white women lie on them?

“Girl, white Democrats will be lynching black folks again!”

“I’m voting to keep (Rep) French Hill and (Rs) because we have to protect our men and boys. We can’t afford to let white (Ds) take us back to bad old days of race verdicts, life sentences and lynchings when a white girl screams rape!”

While the obvious and heinous lies about Christine Blasey Ford’s accusations against Kavanaugh are appalling enough on its own, it’s the highly exaggerated stereotypical “black lady voice,” complete with the requisite “girrrrrl” that really drives home how malicious this advertisement really is,.

While this ad was produced and paid for by the “Black Americans For The President’s Agenda” PAC and the Congressman has officially denounced it, we have a sneaky feeling that he isn’t too ungrateful for the show of support from the PAC.

The upcoming midterm elections are set to be the ugliest political contest since the debacle that was the 2016 election, and this kind of open racism is likely to be only the beginning.
