Another masterpiece in the art form of political attack ads, from the Lincoln Project. It’s short and sums it all up. This is the president of division, of racial tension, of religious hypocrisy, and nothing matters to him except his polls. This is our reality TV president in postcard form.

pwhitten, I never thought I’d love a Republican-peoduced attack ad, but Rick Wilson and the Lincoln Project outdid themselves on this one!

Possible fun fact I heard via Bill Palmer: the “soldiers” were actually guards pulled from the Bureau Of Prisons. Have yet to confirm this but makes a twisted sense.

Some of them were wearing BOP badges and shirts, ID’d in photos – but they could be BOP contract goons.

The ad says that the officers used to clear Lafayette Park were American active duty military. 1) The Park Police issued a statement defending their action,so it wasn’t the military. 2) Military members receive training on a regular basis to remind them of the duty to disobey an illegal order. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WyDVYriZB9Y An order to assault peaceful citizens is illegal. 3) I have no idea what training the Park Police receive,but it is apparently not as rigorous as military training. 4) Neither is police training as the multiple targeted attacks on the press show. https://www.vox.com/identities/2020/5/31/21276013/police-targeted-journalists-covering-george-floyd-protests

Exactly. Close-ups even showed the uniforms of the Park Police. I live a crow’s flight from DC and we see these folks out and about in the grocery stores and everywhere one would shop after getting off from work–the uniforms are quite recognizable and if they haven’t changed after work, there they are in their work clothes standing in line with us. We also have mounted officers in Montgomery County but I’ve not seen any of our MoCo cops at the protests so far. The Park Police are terrific riders and some of their horses are stabled only a few… Read more »
