A NEW LOW: Liberal Ad Shows 'Racist' GOP Voters MOWING DOWN Minority Kids
A left-leaning Hispanic voting organization stood by their shocking new advertisement on Tuesday; doubling-down on a vicious campaign video that showed a random GOP voter intentionally mowing down minority children in his Confederate-flag adorned pick-up truck.
The stunning video, titled “American Nightmare,” was released by the Latino Victory Fund and shows groups of minority children fleeing a marauding supporter of GOP Virginia gubernatorial candidate Ed Gillespie; chasing his would-be victims in a “confederate” truck with a “Don’t tread on me” license plate.
Virginia Democrat candidate Ralph Northam defended the video on Tuesday, saying Gillespie’s own rhetoric forced the liberal organization to create the ad.
“Independent groups are denouncing Ed Gillespie because he has run the most divisive, fear-mongering campaign in modern history,” Northam campaign spokeswoman Ofirah Yheskel told Fox News. “It is not shocking that communities of color are scared of what his Trump-like policy positions mean for them.”

New York State is providing approximately $1.5 billion in government assistance and incentives for Amazon to open its new headquarters in the New York City borough of Queens; sparking outrage from residents who are unknowingly financing the billion-dollar corporation.
“According to Amazon, the cost per job for New York taxpayers is $48,000, compared to $22,000 for Virginia and $13,000 for Tennessee,” writes Fox New York. “New York state’s incentives are nearly triple those of Virginia’s, while Tennessee’s are $102 million.”
Newly elected Democratic-socialist Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slammed the announcement on social media, posting “Amazon is a billion-dollar company. The idea that it will receive hundreds of millions of dollars in tax breaks at a time when our subway is crumbling and our communities need MORE investment, not less, is extremely concerning to residents here.”
