A new campaign ad for the Virginia governor’s race has right-wing nut jobs losing their minds. Latino Victory, an advocacy group that strives to build “Latino political power by electing progressive Latino candidates to all levels of government,” released the ad and conservatives on Twitter immediately began to freak out.
The ad features children of color running in terror at the site of a pick-up truck with a Confederate flag and a sticker for Ed Gillespie, the Republican candidate for governor of Virginia.

Go figure, right-wingers are not taking it well. Presumably, this ad hit a nerve and now Twitter is filled with their disgustingly racist comments.

This is the stupidest thing I’ve ever seen, and I lived through a generation that played lawn darts. How utterly embarrassing for you.

This is incredibly offensive. If this is the way you see America, then you are the problem

Stuff like this doesn’t happen. Perhaps kids might have nightmares like this since they’re having such things put into their heads by libs.

This political ad is real bottom of the birdcage stuff. But then again, we are talking about Socialists here, aren’t we!!

This is dispicable and race baiting. Never talk again about how divisive Trump is when you allow shit like this to air and call it truth.

The truth? Conservatives can’t handle the truth!
