Many centuries ago (okay, last year) our blog community was FIRST to highlight a questionable fashion choice by a groundbreaking Kansas elected official.
Now, that gear has become a talking point in a contest that's likely closer than most people realize.
Two things here:
Unintentionally, Amanda Adkins seems to be equating cops with colonizers. Most middle-class white people won't understand the comparison but it's unfortunate . . . Police are members of our community who risk their lives to protect residents - Colonizers were foreign invaders who garnered riches from killing, raping and exploiting native people. Again, this is an assumption on the part of the Adkins campaign but it plays to the worst intentions of right-wing voters. Moreover, it's remarkably effective.
More importantly . . .
SCORE AN EPIC WIN FOR THE ADKINS CAMP!!! THIS AD HITS KANSAS REP. SHARICE DAVIDS WHERE IT HURTS AND PAINTS HER AS A RADICAL PROTESTER IN LEAGUE WITH ANTIFA!!!
Again, this comparison is false but that doesn't mean it doesn't resonate.
Reminder: TKC stopped caring about who wins political office a long time ago because election victories has been imperially proven to have ZERO impact the lives of plebs in any significant way. However, simply for entertainment purposes, this advert is effective and offers a sign that the GOP contender is SERIOUS about competing for this congressional seat.
Accordingly, here's the word from the GOP upstart power player:
Adkins Campaign Highlights Davids' Anti-Police Remarks In Latest Ad
Overland Park – Today, Amanda Adkins for Congress released the campaign's second television ad of the general election, "Distractions," which highlights Sharice Davids' reckless remarks on law enforcement and lockstep voting record with Nancy Pelosi.
"Sharice Davids said that our law enforcement system is 'rooted in violence,' and she refuses to concretely disavow radical calls to 'Defund the Police,'" said Adkins campaign spokesman Matthew Trail. "Voting with Nancy Pelosi at a rate of 99 percent, Davids is part of the problem in Washington, not the solution."
Beginning today, the ad will air on broadcast and cable television in KS-03.############
