Only 3? Just three? And how many terrorized? How many people have
to change their life, if not lose it, because Democrats want more voters?

It is utterly racist. It says "Gillespie voters are racist" which is
racist in and of itself.
Everything the Dems do is racist. They claim "I'm the victim, I'm the
victim! Take things away from white people to make it right!"

You guys can try and spin anything. The MS-13 ad is policy-based, no
matter your "facts". The Northam ad had nothing to do with policy, it
only made racist insinuations.
That a few of us need to be more in touch with our feelings has obscured
a deep truth: many more folks need to be much less in touch with theirs.
