Right Turn USA apparently has no problem with using racist, sexist, misogynistic themes in its web campaign ads targeting Janice Hahn, a Democratic candidate in a special election to take over Rep. Jane Harman’s Los Angeles-based U.S. House seat. The ad, in the video above, claims Hahn wasted taxpayer dollars by supporting efforts to use gang members to run “gang intervention specialists.”
The ad features a white woman, who we can all conclude is representing Janice Hahn, posing as a stripper and has black men rapping “Give us yo’ cash, bitch” while pulling money out of the stripper’s underwear.
I’m not even sure where to begin as to how offensive, stupid and just plain wrong this ad is. Right Turn USA on its website does say its “mission is to expose and lampoon the typical politico’s microscopic brain through cutting-edge viral videos with guts and humor!” (Exclamation point theirs, not mine).
I truly hope this is meant for parody (can we even label this trash as parody) and not meant to be taken seriously.
Shake my damn head…
