I previously wrote about a short, but decidedly not sweet ad about the riots that got straight to the point, an ad that I nicknamed “The Purge,” for obvious reasons.
It has a lot of power in being short.
The GOP just released this new ad and well… pic.twitter.com/vBk4fnMnQK

But you could easily have had one a little bit longer given all the material that’s out here.
Now the NRSC has made that one, that lays a lot of the blame for the BLM riots squarely on the doorstep of the Democrats who have encouraged unrest, uprisings in the street and “pushing back” against Republicans, showing the infamous quotes from Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Eric Holder and Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ). You can see their comments interspersed with scenes of BLM/Antifa rioting across the country.
From Washington Examiner:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says in the next clip, “I just don’t even know why there aren’t uprisings in the country. Maybe there will be.” This came from a June 14, 2018, weekly press conference, when she was the House minority leader. Pelosi said she did not know why people were not “uprising” against the Trump administration over the conditions on the southern border with Mexico.
The voice-over in the ad continues, “Democrats encouraged it.”
Former Attorney General Eric Holder is seen in the next clip at an October 2018 campaign event in Georgia saying, “When they go low, we kick them. That’s what this new Democratic Party is about.”
New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, a Democrat, is seen saying, “Get up in the face of some congresspeople,” a remark he made in July 2018 just weeks after California Rep. Maxine Waters, also a Democrat, encouraged her supporters to confront President Trump’s Cabinet officials. Waters is also included in the ad.
They show Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Ca), the Democratic vice presidential nominee, encouraging the “protests” and Joe Biden, the presidential nominee, terming them “peaceful.”
It also nails Democrats but good for being involved in helping to bail out people during the riots. Harris and 13 Biden staffers contributed to a bail fund to help get people out and Harris promoted the fund as well on social media, helping them get to $35 million. The Fund helped to get out people arrested for crimes during the riots, including people who were charges with violent crimes. At least one person bailed out then was allegedly involved in another assault, leaving the victim with a traumatic brain injury.
Ads like this need to run over and over again on a loop until Election Day.
