TAKE IT DOWN! Stand Against the Racist, Misogynist Political Attack Ad on Janice Hahn

    1. Petition by

      Michael Aguilera

      Torrance, CA

Shock tactics in politics are all too familiar. But the attack ad released by SuperPAC Turn Right USA portends an altogether new and ominous era for our political discourse. 

The ad, attacking Congressional candidate Janice Hahn, is a profoundly cynical smear, an attempt to gin up relevance with sexism and race-bating. Major media outlets have called it "the most offensive political ad ever." But if we don't stand up now, this ad could be only the beginning.

We have to draw a line in the sand. We have to say loud and clear that this is not the message we will send to our African-American friends: that the color of your skin will be used to telegraph criminality. This is not the message we will send to our sisters and our daughters: that if you want to serve your community, if you aspire to public office, you should expect your opponents make a video with your face on a pole-dancing stripper. 

 Let's send the right message: racism and misogyny aren't okay. Sign this petition. Then go here to donate and help Janice Hahn balance the scales.

To:
Ladd Ehlinger Jr., Turn Right USA
Racism and misogyny aren't publicity tactics. Your ad does only demeans African-Americans, not only women, it demeans all of us. Please, don't drag our public discourse down.

Please, take down your ad.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      Is this a real political ad? I'm sad for America if this is were their political discourse is going.

      Saturated with the outright lies and twisted 1/2 truths of Fox "News" et al and political ads such as this from Turn Right USA, these political interest groups are rivaling some of the worst propaganda the world has seen.

      How can legitimate issued be seriously debated in such and environment?

      I thought this was a joke or some kind of satire. The fact that this is real horrifies me.

      This beyond belief "political ad" is frightening!!!! And what is even MORE frightening is that some people will believe they have been accurately informed about Ms. Hahn.

      You, the Republican Party, Grover Norquist, etc., etc., are nothing more than PROPOGANDIST. Do you HONESTLY think that we are going to BELIEVE anything that a REPUBLICAN/TEA PARTY candidate THINKS,

      SAYS or DOES. When the Republican PLEDGES are more IMPORTANT than the OATH taken in CONGRESS to PROTECT and DEFEND the CONSTITUTION, which by the way was misread, (pages stuck together) parts were omitted. IT'S TIME TO REPEAL and REPLACE!!!
