'An Unhinged Mob': RNC Rolls Out Damning New Ad Just Weeks Before Midterms


The Republican National Committee has been absolutely on fire this year in terms of political advertisements ahead of the midterm elections that call out the Democratic Party and the left in general for their increasingly unhinged and violent behavior.

The Democrats have provided ample examples of unhinged behavior in the two years since Donald Trump was elected president, so there is certainly no shortage of material from which to choose. But the people at the RNC who’ve sifted through countless video clips and compiled the worst of the worst into hard-hitting 30- to 60-second ads deserve a pat on the back, to say the least.

The newest ad to be released by the RNC is titled “The Left: An Unhinged Mob,” and it includes recent footage of inciting remarks from prominent Democrats mixed with footage of angry leftist mobs wreaking havoc in the streets, restaurants and government buildings.

The ad begins with former Obama administration Attorney General Eric Holder, who adapted former first lady Michelle Obama’s oft-repeated line “When they go low, we go high” to instead posit, “When they go low, we kick ’em.”

That is immediately followed by a clip of an abortion-supporting leftist in Toronto who delivered a roundhouse kick to a pro-life protester, knocking her phone to the ground and causing minor injuries.

Then of course there is the ubiquitous clip of California Rep. Maxine Waters — which really never gets old — urging supporters to gather crowds together in mobs and harass any Trump administration members they happen to see in public.

As the audio from Waters’ clip continues to play, footage from the leftist mob that ran Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and his wife out of a restaurant is shown.

That is followed by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi throwing up her arms in a shrug during a news conference as she wondered aloud, “I just don’t even know why there aren’t uprisings all over the country. Maybe there will be.”

Are you glad the RNC continues to drive home the point that leftist Democrats have lost their minds?

As Pelosi spoke, scenes of the mob of leftist protesters chanting in opposition to new Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh are displayed, which included some demonstrators futilely attempting to beat down the massive door that fronts the Supreme Court building.

Following that is a recent interview with failed Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, who said, “You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about.”

Then there is footage of Democrat New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, who implored his supporters during a recent speech to “get up in the face of some congresspeople,” which is followed by yet another clip of anti-Kavanaugh protesters attempting to storm the Supreme Court.

A voice-over on that final scene of protesters — no doubt the voice of a liberal media news host outraged that conservatives had accurately labeled leftist protests as the actions of mobs — asks innocently, “Is this the, quote unquote, mob?” Why, yes … yes it is.

As the screen fades to black, the concluding caption reads, “The Left: An Unhinged Mob.”

The Daily Wire noted a handful of other examples of “unhinged” behavior from the left that weren’t included in this particular ad, such as the attempted mass murder of Republican members of Congress on a baseball field in 2017, the brutal assault of Republican Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul by his liberal neighbor and the chasing out of restaurants by leftist mobs that occurred with Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, and to a lesser extent, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders.

The left truly has become unhinged over the past two years, and all the GOP has to do to remind voters of this disturbing and increasingly violent reality is to simply compile video clips of Democrats and leftists speaking and acting out on their own, with virtually no additional commentary necessary to drive home the dismal truth.
