Disgusting GOP rape/race ads

Wow. Scott Lemieux links to this mailer sent out in upstate New York on behalf of Republican candidates.

Her eyes are wide open as if she’s scared and trying to scream. And the (obviously male) hand is darker-skinned than the face it’s covering. Which is enough for me to conclude that this is a racist ad. This is par for the course for Republicans this election cycle. The message seems to be “Vote GOP. Democrats want to allow dark-skinned men to rape your daughters.”…

Maybe political awareness actually has a chance of attracting an audience. (Follow the link quickly, though. The list is updated every 6 hours.)
