Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, February 06, 2018

Republican gubernatorial candidate and State Rep. Jeanne Ives' (R-42nd) new attack ad has attracted criticism from both sides of the aisle as being divisive and insensitive. The ad includes an actor portraying a transgender woman, as well as depictions of a black Chicago Teachers Union member, a woman in a pink "pussyhat" and an immigration advocate. They address Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner, saying, "Thank you for betraying Illinois Republicans." In a statement released Saturday, Illinois Republican Party Chairman Tim Schneider said the ad does not reflect the views of the Republican Party. He said Ives should pull the ad and "apologize to the Illinoisans who were negatively portrayed in a cowardly attempt to stoke political division."

The "analysis" by TYT commentators was far more bigoted than anything in the lame partisan hack ad. Look who's stereotyping "Latinos" and transgender women?

Illinois?

There must be something in the water.

There's a long list of Illinois politicians convicted of corruption.

What kind of fertile ground are they tilling in that state anyway?

The Republican Party has to stir up hatred if they hope to win elections.That's how Trump got in, it's the new Southern Strategy.
