Last night during ABC’s Democratic debate, a new ad aired that showed a photo of AOC with a hole burning in it to reveal the reality behind her dangerous socialist ideas.
Watch the ad below:
Here’s more from DC Examiner:
The 30-second ad, from a Republican-affiliated PAC named New Faces GOP, features its founder Elizabeth Heng, a former GOP congressional candidate in California, warning about liberal politicians who embrace socialism.
“This is the face of socialism and ignorance,” Heng says as a photo of Ocasio-Cortez catches fire and burns away to show harrowing images from the Cambodian Civil War in the 1970s from which her father fled.
“Does Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez know the horrors of socialism?” Heng continues. “My father was minutes from death in Cambodia before a forced marriage saved his life. That’s socialism: Forced obedience. Starvation. Mine is a face of freedom. My skin is not white. I’m not outrageous, racist, nor socialist. I’m a Republican.”
The ad quickly caused outrage by liberals:
How the hell did this Elizabeth Heng ad where @AOC’s face is burned up clear ABC network standards and practices?

This is WRONG and DANGEROUS. Might as well show AOC being shot with a AR-15.

Exactly my thoughts. The mere act of burning her image is a display of violence. Folks need to stick to facts & policy positions. They need to stop fear mongering & more importantly demonizing members of Congress. FYI: No one puts her residents (and our planet) first, like @AOC https://t.co/K2Qz1N0PeN

Even AOC chimed in, and then somehow turned this ad exposing socialism into ‘white supremacy’:
Know that this wasn’t an ad for young conservatives of color – that was the pretense.
What you just watched was a love letter to the GOP’s white supremacist case. https://t.co/zvp1EB02c5

Elizabeth Heng, responsible for the ad, hit back:
Not Republicans. Me. Are you really calling me a racist @aoc? I’m calling all Democrats out for supporting an evil ideology. Or are you just in Congress to hang out with celebrities and tweet out ridiculous ideas like the green new deal? https://t.co/w985LYjIZd

Oh yeah she’s totally there to tweet out ridiculous ideas. Non-stop!
Here’s Derek Hunter’s response to all this ‘outrage’:
Burning the American flag: Patriotic and free speech
Burning the Israeli flag: Super patriotic, free speech & awesome
Calling Trump Hitler: Awesome
Burning a picture of AOC by a woman of color while talking about the dangers of socialism: A threat that must be stopped! https://t.co/VUrIECqoAA

He’s right. Democrats have constantly compared Trump to Hitler and Stalin, blamed him for mass shootings all over the world that have killed many people, and accused him of being an evil White Supremacist.
But hey, a burning photo of AOC as a transition in a video is going TOO FAR.
