KNIGHT: Slinging mud from the Soptic tank

continued from page 1

The grinning, cartoonlike Mr. West then punches a young woman while the narrator says, “he’s whacked women with his votes for huge cuts in women’s health care funding.” As a family is shown, the narrator says, “he’s mauled middle-class families.” The ad ends with Mr. West holding a fistful of $100 bills stolen from average Americans.

American Sunrise PAC, founded by Thomas P. Murphy, Jr., the father of Mr. West’s opponent, Democrat Patrick Murphy, created the ad. The elder Mr. Murphy has funneled $250,000 into the PAC, along with $100,000 from frequent Democratic donor Ibrahim Al-Rashid of Miami.

The left does not have a monopoly on mudslinging, but count on the “mainstream” media to ignore or downplay anything that puts liberals in a bad light.

Everyone who loves liberty needs to get involved in the most consequential election in our lifetime. As Johnson’s propagandist intoned, “The stakes are too high for you to stay home.”
