Latino Victory — a progressive political organization co-founded by actress Eva Longoria, which aims to support and elect leaders to benefit the Latino community — created a takedown ad targeted at Virginia GOP gubernatorial nominee Ed Gillespie, who is running against current Democratic Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam. The ad, which was shared on Monday, also took aim at President Donald Trump.
The ad, supporting Northam, features a white male actor driving a black pickup truck carrying a flying Confederate flag. The truck also bore license plates featuring the Gadsden flag’s motto, “Don’t tread on me,” as well as a sticker boasting support for Gillespie.
Several minority child actors are featured in the ad. The children flee upon the pickup truck’s approach, warning other minority children on their escape of the coming truck.[contentcards url=”http://www.theblaze.com/news/2017/10/30/progressive-group-launches-ad-featuring-va-gop-supporter-chasing-down-minority-kids-with-a-pickup/” target=”_blank”]
