Black Republican Pastor Jerone Davison released an ad on Wednesday featuring an AR-15 and a message that many Conservatives will agree with.
Davison is a former NFL player turned pastor running in Arizona’s fourth congressional district. His primary comes up in August.
In an ad from the campaign, Davison gives a reason that people need an AR-15 and thirty rounds in a clip.
He posted it with the caption “Make Rifles Great Again.”
In the video, Davison says: “Democrats like to say that no one needs an AR-15 for self defense. That no one could possibly need all 30 rounds. But when this rifle is the only thing standing between your family and a dozen angry Democrats in Klan hoods, you just might need that semi-automatic. And all 30 rounds.”
The footage then shows Davison standing up to a group robed KKK members coming to his house with pitchforks, baseball bats, and other weapons. Davison carries an AR-15 and walks out of the house. The Klansmen run away in fear from his property upon seeing the weapon.
The reaction was generally positive on Twitter.
“A dozen angry Democrats in Klan hoods,” wrote Christina Pushaw.
Jeff Scott wrote, “Is this the best political ad ever?”
Someone else compared the imagery to Malcolm X.
The producer of the ad said it received “4 million views on Twitter in 8 hours.”
Jerone’s campaign issued this comment to Next News regarding the viral ad, “We are going to win huge across the isle with Republicans, Independents, and Democrats. We are going got teach the entire Republican Party how to win and we are going to be a Nuclear Grade Red Pill for the entire conversation. We are going to provoke, as we did yesterday, a rewriting of history.
We got the “KKK Democrats” trending #1 on Twitter. We essentially grabbing the narrative and and giving the crowd the opportunity to address these things that most people have been propagandized into believing. Most candidates only have cash to do one or two videos like this, max, over the course of the primary and the general, but we have the resources and going to keep them on deck this whole time. We have 15 to 20 planned.”
Democrats hate when a strong black man stands up for himself and his own self-made beliefs. The video was obviously aimed at creating controversy and it did a great job at that. Would you vote for this guy if he was running in your district? Let us know below.
