Watch the video first.



This isn't a parody video. It's real.


It’s become a bare-knuckles affair with Hunter’s campaign running an ad saying his San Diego-born opponent, Ammar Campa-Najjar, changed his name to “hide his family’s ties to terrorism” and now wants to “infiltrate” Congress. Campa-Najjar responded by saying Hunter has lost his grip on reality.

The younger Hunter, a 41-year-old anti-tax, pro-military conservative, was expected to have an easy time in November until the indictments came in August. He and his wife, who served as his campaign chair, are accused of misusing more than $250,000 in campaign funds, including more than $400 on tequila shots at a bachelor party, $250 on airfare for a pet rabbit and $14,000 for an Italian vacation.

Times of Israel

Putting aside that Duncan Hunter is already under the microscope for corruption allegations, has the world gone crazy? Seriously? The ad is completely bogus. It's plain racist. Ammar's Grandfather was onvolved in the planning of the Munich bombings, but his Grandfather died 16 years before Ammar was born. They've accused him of being endorsed by terrorist groups, completely baseless. Ammar is also a Christian. I mean putting this all aside, disagree with Ammar's political, left or right, is this what we've come to? This is the lowest of the low. And no I refuse to just push this aside as a minor political campaign... Duncan' Hunter's campaign represents how low of a bar we've set in this country. Unbelievable.

We're not talking about this on here at all?? Jesus, even following 9/11 I've never seen a campaign advertisement this outside of reality. Never.

The real facts.

It is a shame people get away with stuff like that. I guess the bad guy, Duncan had no other way to win then to fight dirty.

It makes no difference if it's real or not.

It is made for the lowest common denominator, who will believe it like it's the Gospel.

Haven't you heard? What is real does not matter any more.

The ad calls him a "millenial". That's hilarious.

I agree somewhat with your point and do find the ad distasteful. Hunter is anti-tax, pro-military. That seems to be an oxymoron to me.

I personally think a person's family says a lot about a person. I've raised the issue of Bush's heritage quite a few times. Obama's was certainly brought up. So I think the fact that his grandfather and father were pro-terrorist is an important point.

See. You're too worried about the popularity contest. I don't care. If it triggers you, it's a success.

I have never liked the Jerry Springer/shock and awe approach I see in so many ads, left and right. I find them irritating, and regardless of the message or candidate, I always feel like I've lost IQ points when they're over.

If any of those allegations are true, I'm convinced there's a more mature approach to presenting them.

It's about time that the "other side" started using the same cheesy tactics.

Are there any speculations of rape yet?

So , we have another thread started on a YT video by you .
I find it hilarious
And you even speak in absolute dogma , without knowing the facts. Only conflicting reports.


BTW -how did that Kavanaugh appointment go for you ?

Lol right just ask Chritine Blasey Ford!

Pretty tasteless add, but I can see where intentions could be questioned:Campa-Najjar's paternal grandfather was Muhammad Yusuf al-Najjar, one of the terrorists who helped plot the Munich Massacre, which killed 11 Israelis.

I still dont agree with the ad tactics, but one of our nations weaknesses is how easy it is to bankroll somebody into power.

Absolutely tasteless...but yes, this is what we've come to. Policies and ideals be damned.

I'm triggered.

You-tube only speaks to white men, and white Ivy league prep schools.

You-tube is NOT gluten free.

That is some of the reasons I absolutely avoid it at all costs
Sustenance for the weak-minded would best describe some of the content.

What it has come to is fighting on the Democrat's own terms.

Please remember in the upcoming elections, the left started this.

Get slapped around once too many times and eventually you will get tired of it and kick them in the nuts.

That's what you are seeing.

As an observation, I do not see you posting the 3489673486703485724 political ads of the Dems doing the same thing.

So yep... a street fight.

Your ideology is going to lose this one.

Keep posting though!!!! It makes a difference!!!!
