Republicans are bold-faced liars. They keep proving it over and over again. Case in point – the way pro-Trump nonprofit Great America Alliance is using President Obama’s narration of his book Dreams of My Father out of context in a new radio ad in order to make it sound like President Obama doesn’t think Democrats do anything for Black America. In the narration, President Obama is quoting another person regarding how people felt about Democrats in Chicago prior to the 1980s. This ad is a last ditch attempt to help Trump shill Karen Handel beat Democrat Jon Ossoff in the Georgia special election. First, the ad begins with a right-wing hack by the name of Autry Pruitt, who says:
“Hi, my name is Autry Pruitt, a fellow black American working hard every day, just like you. It may seem out of season, but all of a sudden, Democratic politicians have started coming around again. We normally only see them every other November, swarming around and making promises to get our vote. But nothing ever changes for us, does it? Here’s what President Barack Obama had to say about it.”
That’s when President Obama’s voice cuts in:
“Plantation politics. Black people in the worst jobs. The worst housing. Police brutality rampant. But when the so-called black committeemen came around election time, we’d all line up and vote the straight Democratic ticket. Sell our souls for a Christmas turkey.”
Then the ad cuts back to Pruitt, who says:
“Let’s not sell out for another Christmas turkey. The more things change, the more they stay the same. Democrats keep taking our votes for granted.”
This is absolutely despicable, and the people who are behind it are just fine with what amounts to lying to their voters to beat Jon Ossoff in the hotly contested Georgia District 6 election. When asked about the ad and why they are being so dishonest, Great America Alliance spokesman and co-chair Eric Beach simply said:
“it’s like any ad, those are his words and we want to use his words and I’ll leave it at that.”
Hopefully, the truth of the ad will spread far and wide so that people are not fooled and will turn out to vote for Jon Ossoff on June 20th.
