(TheRedAlertNews.com) – Republican US Senator John Kennedy of Louisiana has launched a new anti-crime ad campaign with a simple but powerful message to defend law enforcement and against the leftist “defund the police” movement.
You can watch a video of the ad further down this post.
“If you hate cops just because they’re cops, the next time you get in trouble, call a crackhead,” Kennedy declares at the end of the 30-second ad video.
His new ad shows criminals committing crimes while protesters march against police brutality.
The banners raised by the anti-police demonstrators clearly show the “defund the police” slogan.
“Crime is surging in Louisiana. Woke leaders blame the police. I blame the criminals,” Kennedy states at the beginning of the clip.
“A mom should not have to look over her shoulder when she is pumping gas,” the GOP US Senator from Louisiana adds later.
He adds that he “voted against the early release of violent criminals” and “opposed defunding the police.”
The ad video then ends with his recommendation that those who have the police should seek aid from “crackheads” when they get in trouble.
The latest data from last month shows that New Orleans, the biggest city in Louisiana, has now become the “murder capital” of the United States, with more homicides per capita than any other major American city.
Kennedy, completing his first six-year term as United States Senator, is expected to win the 2022 election for a second term in Congress.
Endorsed by former President Donald Trump, the Louisiana incumbent has raised $15.8 million for his campaign, according to The Associated Press, as cited by The Hill.
That is compared to only $600,000 raised by his top opponent, Luke Mixon, a former US Navy pilot and a moderate Democrat.
Gary Chambers Jr., another Democrat challenging Kennedy for his seat, reacted to the GOP senator’s latest ad by accusing him of racism and arguing that “crackhead” is a racially-charged term.
“It’s a way for him to say the N-word without saying it. It speaks to the worst in us. I think this is worse than the Willie Horton ad,” Chambers said.
Last month, Sen. John Kennedy launched another ad that said he would work to reduce taxes, secure the Southern border and fight crime.
“Down here we understand that good things come to those who work their butts off,” the senator said in that advertising video.
