(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) Charles Booker, the Democrat nominee challenging Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., released a political advertisement earlier this week depicting himself with a noose around his neck, resorting to the leftist tradition of playing the race card for political gain.
“Lynching is a tool of terror,” Booker tweeted. “It was used to kill hopes for freedom. In Kentucky, it was used to kill three of my uncles.”
“In this historic election, the choice is clear. Rand Paul may want to divide us, but hate won’t win this time,” he continued. “It’s time to move forward, together.”
Booker, who is black, blamed Rand Paul in the ad for backing racist laws which would support the lynching of blacks, Townhall reported.
“The pain of our past persists to this day,” the narrator says at the opening of the ad.
Booker also claimed that Paul blocked the Democrats’ so-called anti-lynching bill from becoming law.
Paul is “the person who single-handedly blocked an anti-lynching act from being federal law,” Booker’s ad says.
In the ad, the camera zooms in onto the noose, and Booker claims that “the choice couldn’t be clearer. Do we move forward together? Or do we let politicians like Rand Paul forever hold us back and drive us apart?”
At the end Booker attempts to rally Kentucky to come out to vote for him, and to get Paul out of office.
“In November, we will choose healing. We will choose Kentucky.”
