DISGUSTING Ad Attacking AOC Released by GOP PAC

DISGUSTING Ad Attacking AOC Released by GOP PAC

Posted by


>>Hashtag urging people to boycott ABC is
trending on social media following an ad that actually aired on a Sinclair affiliated ABC
station in Washington, DC. The ad features a photo of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,
a representative from New York, and her image is burning. There is a comparison to her political ideology
to genocide in Cambodia. And just to give you more information before
we toss to this ad, it was paid for by a right wing political action committee. And the political action committee is founded
by a failed congressional candidate, her name is Elizabeth Heng, and it is incredibly disturbing. So I want to give you that warning before
we watch and, with that said, take a look at this disgusting defamatory ad.>>This is the face of socialism and ignorance. Does Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez know the horror
of socialism? 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.>>Your not outrageous? Okay, so let me give you more details on this
ad before we open it up to the panel. So during the first commercial break in the
three hour marathon debate session, viewers in Washington, DC were treated to this 30
second spot that opened with this photo of AOC. Also, AOC, I didn’t know about it until AOC
had tweeted about it. This was last night during the debate. And she said Republicans are running TV ads
setting pictures of me on fire to convince people they aren’t racist. Life is weird! And she also said, 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. And at a time when we’re seeing an increase
of young men who are radicalized with right wing ideology in this country, and we’re seeing
homegrown terrorism in this country in the form of these mass shootings. This type of imagery is unacceptable and the
fact that any type of a television station would think it’s a good idea to air something
like this is unbelievable to me.>>There’s so much to be said. I’m actually now teaching on a campus that
has had multiple incidences of white supremacist vandalism and violence. And recently there’s a border initiative event
that is happening for months at the school and a white supremacist group vandalized all
of the material. And watching the Turning Point put their table
on campus and luring people in around this context is frightening to me. Because they are weaponizing that anxiety,
fear that they have, and it is so crazy that it’s also done within the framework of socialism. We’re just so emaciated when it comes to understanding
political economy, and also how it is contextualized in global history. We have no idea what she’s talking about in
Cambodia. What happened in Cambodia was there was French
colonialism forever, right?>>Right.>>And the French, what they did was set up
structures that favored one group of people over another, creating a lot of tension that
happens in every colonial situation between groups of people. And in order to defeat the colonialism there
is a military led campaign to do so. And so the most militarized group is the one
that prevails. And the violence that she’s referencing is
the Khmer Rouge’s violence. And it was horrific, it was destructive. It wasn’t because of socialism. It was because of that historical route, and
also the modern nation state is a violent entity. But we have no context to understand that,
that’s one thing. And two, they’re also presuming racism by
outwardly saying, her saying I’m not white, by the way.>>Well the first thing I notice is that in
her opening statement about not being white you clearly know that a middle-aged white
man wrote that.>>It was very clear. You could see her wheels were spinning in
the back of her head as she was trying to remember the line and then give it to us with
a straight face.>>Right.>>And I think that what’s frightening and
troubling beyond that even, is that this is straight from Hitler’s playbook.>>Absolutely.>>I think Mein Kampf, I think it’s the Jews,
let’s blame the Jews. If we can just put a face to your suffering
and your struggles, or if we can put a face to these bodies that are laying here. That was terrible.>>I mean, who thought this would be perfect
if we just open up with an image of AOC and her face burning? A brown woman’s face, who is being attacked
by white supremacist. And we already know that when Trump retweeted
a video of Ilhan Omar talking about 9/11 and contextualizing it for people. In the background there was image that had
the slogan of an organization called Council on American Islamic Relations Los Angeles,
and it was in the background. Next day, or day of, they got bomb threats.>>Let’s also be clear, though. AOC, first of all, socialism, right? Getting a grasp and understanding what the
textbook definition is. Furthermore, AOC did not create these ideals. She definitely has a strong voice, a strong
presence, and she has a platform and an understanding from a first person perspective what it’s
like to struggle, being someone who came from waiting tables to now being in that position. However, I think again it’s an attempt to
not only character assassinate, but quite literally, there are people sending bomb threats
to people. It just, yeah.>>Yeah, sorry really quickly, I just wanna
add something too which is that the reason they’re attacking socialism so vigorously
is they’re trying to conceal the actual terror of capitalism. And we don’t even understand the robustness
of the violence of capitalism because we don’t go back to, really, where it originated. It originated in chattel slavery and settler
colonialism. So the body count for that, it far more exceeds
socialism. And we don’t care to ever bring that into
the conversation.>>I mean, even today, I mean, even if you
wanna focus on the context of a capitalistic society today and think about the number of
people who die as a result of the obsession of profit. Think about how many Americans die on a regular
basis because they don’t have the ability to afford healthcare in America. So it is kind of interesting how the right
wing finds a way to twist our current narrative to something that is just perverse and has
nothing to do with what AOC is advocating for. She did put out a tweet to reiterate what
it is that she stands for. And when you really think about it, I think,
even the Republican base, even the voters would agree to most of these policies had
it not been for the right wing media that really does twist these policy proposals and
these ideas. So she writes, since the GOP will only get
worse in their hysteria, let’s remember who we are. We’re fighting to guarantee healthcare in
America, to make education and housing dignified and accessible. To save our planet. To set living standards. To establish justice at home and peace abroad. And so to take that political ideology and
twist it into genocide in Cambodia is just sick. And even if you completely disagree with the
political ideology that AOC has, think about where we are as a country right now and how
we are grappling with an increase of violence. Putting out this type of violent imagery toward
a young woman, a member of Congress, is unacceptable. And this also shows you what Sinclair is all
about. That is why it is dangerous to have any type
of monopoly in media. And the media consolidation that we’re experiencing
today is gonna continue spreading this type of misinformation, this type of violent rhetoric
and imagery, and it does nothing for a functioning democracy. You don’t have a functioning democracy when
you have this type of a right-wing hold on our media.>>Absolutely.>>So, I’m gonna be honest, I’m afraid for
her. I’m afraid for her. I’m afraid for Representative Ilhan Omar because
we already know that people are willing to carry out acts of violence. There are three stories in the first hour
of this show alone that have to do with right wingers, I’m talking about public figures. I’m not even talking about voters, public
figures, elected members of Congress, or I should say elected members of state legislatures
who are threatening to shoot individuals that they disagree with publicly. That is what’s happening in this country right
now.>>And imagine if it was on the other side
and the left to use that kind of rhetoric.>>I mean, we already know what happens when
Andy Ngo gets any type of assault from members of Antifa, right?>>Mm-hm.>>And he has no problem with conspiring with
right wingers when they want to carry out violence. But every single media outlet will go out
there and condemn Antifa and make it appear as though they are the equivalent of the right
wing violence in this country. They are not, not even close. Let’s call it what it is. This is a real problem, and I think our media
enables it. They just do. Stop drawing the false equivalencies. We know where the radicalization happens in
this country and it’s not happening on the left.>>I think it’s why we also see the strong
attack on progressives like Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders because they’re talking
about these things that are generational. Like you talked about chattel slavery, all
these different things that have happened. Our country has a dark legacy, an egregious
past around not only how we’ve responded or treated communities of color and indigenous
folks, but more specifically what happens when you get on the heels of white supremacy. And I feel right now what we’re witnessing
is white supremacy on its deathbed.>>Yeah.>>And so it’s backed into a corner and it’s
flailing with the blade just cutting anything that gets in close proximity to it. And so I think that, for people like myself,
I didn’t get into politics really until 2015. So I knew that there was a part of me that
wanted to know what was happening in the larger conversation. But just thinking how does all of this language,
socialism and liberal and progressive and this and GOP, what is that really saying underneath
it all? I think sometimes we need to simplify it,
and I do believe that helped Trump, somewhat, in the election even because he didn’t have
the language or the scholastic aptitude to be able to approach these people with all
of these terms. He spoke to them in a way where he was talking
to them not over them. And so we, progressives, democrats, we have
to get to a place where we learn how to make these conversations more accessible. So I love the way that AOC just came out and
said what it is. She restated the mission. This is what we’re here to do, anything else
is just noise. Let’s focus on the nuance.>>Yes, and I’m sure she’s getting, as usual,
a barrage of threats and harassment on social media. She’s fighting for us every single day and
it takes a lot of courage to do it in today’s climate. So show her some love. Give her a note of encouragement and try to
inspire her the way that she’s inspired us. Because she’s out there fighting for us. We should fight for her.

  1. To bring much needed focus to the pivotal issue of climate change, TYT is raising funds to host a Climate Change Town Hall. http://tyt.com/townhall

  2. AOC makes people look bad. She's the millennial idiot. Why don't you tell everyone how illegals are being mistreated even though we spend 4.5 billion on them

  3. Socialism has ruined my country India. We are 40 years behind the world due to Big Governments and crazy socialist ideas, rampant poverty corruption. America dont adopt socialism. It doesn't work.

  4. aoc the socialist says illegals are being mistreated by having 4.5 billion thrown at them. illegals get hot food, clothing, shelter, lawyers, cable tv. games, activites, etc etc… meanwhile, back home in her district and across america, homeless americans are sleeping in the streets and eating out of garbage cans.

  5. in america we have capitalism for the brave of heart and socialism for the less fortunate. thats what makes america great. now keek comes along, hires his socialist pushing puppet actress and wants to change the fabric of america. keek thinks he part of the communist upper class

  6. This is another great example why socialism divides
    Trump has won the last 3 democratic debates keep it up freaks. Hit the road dems socialists and communists. Burn on

  7. How is that black lady saying "a white middle aged man wrote that" not racist, but if I say "the lady sounded black on the phone" everyone would get butthurt? Hypocritical ass channel.

  8. AOC is racist because she denigrates the woman of colour assuming that she is just a β€œpuppet in white men’s hands” denying her individuality, independence and strength.

  9. But but colonialism….nope it was not because of colonalism. …it was Pol Pot wanted to start a marxist leninist utopia. He was backed by the North Viet

  10. Dont particularly care for the burning of the picture of aoc. However i wonder if people remember the interview with jim carey having a dream about beating Donald Yrump with a golf club. I wonder if people remember snoop dogs video of a man shooting a Trump impersonator dressed as a clown. I wonder if people remember the new york play capturing a trump impersonator being stabbed to death. I wonder if people remember Cathy Griffin holding a bloodied severed head of Donald Trump up on national tv. The burning picture was not a act of violence, nor a death threat. But it was probobly in poor taste i think. A simple picture with aoc with a slash through it would have done just fine. Ana you are blowing this out of proportion.

  11. The lady who show the pictures of death πŸ’€ people are disgusting. Republicans should have not allowed that. Is propaganda for 2020 for Drump.

  12. when the 70s tv western bonanza aired, a map of nevada was burned at the beginning of every episode.. how does the racism and zenophobia fit in on that one tyt?

  13. I would say that TYT, AOC and socialist fans just got they're ass handed to them, Oh! and don't worry TYT will protect you from disturbing images that you all advocate for. lol

  14. 2:25

    "this type of imagery is unacceptable" – feminist doesn't like FACTS, PICTURES, or even HISTORY that shows her policies equate to absolute FAILURE. You will never be able to hush the truth under the rug because you're too much of a joke to accept that SOCIALISM DOESN'T WORK.

  15. Totally ignore the context of the video and focus on AOC burning. Do these fools actually know the history of the young turks in the 20th century, thats a subject for debate.

  26. The San Francisco Market's ABC stations either are not Sinclair-owned, or they know their stations would be protested vehemently if they were to run this, bc we didn't see this ad.

  27. Gotta love how liberals just cant accept that there are non-white conservatives. It goes again their whole "white-supremecy" narrative and they apparently have nothing to hold onto anymore.

  28. Brilliant ad. A local ad has gone national and gotten more air time they they could have ever bought again thanks to AOC. AOC and the rest of the squad are the best thing that has happened to the GOP in years.

  29. LYING RIGHT WING NUT, THIS IS WHY WE SHOULD NEVER WORK WITH THESE CONSERVATIVE CUCKS.
    THIS DELUSIONAL BITCH IS BACKING TRUMP THE POCKET FASCIST IN THE MAKING.
    AOC WANTS TO FORM A GOVERNMENT THAT HELPS PEOPLE WHILE TRUMP AND HIS CRONIES WANT TO THROW POOR AND MIDDLE CLASS PEOPLE UNDER THE BUS.
    TRUMP'S AMERICA IS ALL ABOUT FILLING THE POCKETS OF THE 1%.

  30. EUROPE IS MOSTLY SOCIAL DEMOCRAT AND THEY ARE FARING BETTER THAN AMERICA ! SHOULD ANGELA MERKLE 'S FACE BE SET ON FIRE THAN ?

  31. There is nothing offensive about that ad; everything it said was not only innocuous, but true. In contrast, it is very offensive to all virtuous people to announce one's support for an ideology that murdered 100 million people in the twentieth century (as an extremely conservative estimate).

  32. Wow. Accusing a minority woman of being manipulated by and reading the thoughts of an old white man is maybe the most demeaning, woman-hating thing to do. But because a black woman wields the accusation against an Asian woman (who, according to the left, is lower on the intersectionality hierarchy), no scandal or backlash. TYT is a truly gross entity.

  33. Ana, Watch John Oliverβ€˜s speech on immigration! I know this is off the subject! Not crazy about Oliver but he sure explains what’s happening right now very well! Worth The watch!

  34. Hey Anna. We don't agree with policy because we too dumb and just talk Fox news at wholesale. We are smart enough to think though ideas and decide how we feel. I don't need to tell me what to think, I have belifes and the GOP fight for them most of the time. Demicates don't do that for their base so why would I want to join a party that is always trying to stab you in the back.

  35. Cambodia's former leader, Pol Pot, was a real socialist who inflicted socialism on the people of Cambodia. Westchester's AOC is a socialist who wants to inflict socialism on the people of the United States.

  36. GOP are bating the crazies as hard as they can. Truly hope that AOC and like-minded individuals remain safe outchea…the rhetoric is beyond out of hand at this point. Shits gonna get people hurt

  37. Disgusting attack.
    Pack of feral black Somolian animals in Minnesota targeted and attacked a white man, whipped him with a belt, hit him with a potted plant, stomped on him, ran over him with a bike and then they stripped him and robbed him.
    The beating with on for two minutes and was captured on surveillance video.

  38. I missed most of the debate, but i remember my wife telling me about that sickening commercial. My wife not very political, but she definitely saw that ad as disingenuous and creepy it was that she told me.
