A Democrat candidate running for Congress in Washington has produced a new video ad that is shocking in its violent nature.
Titled “Estakio Beltran: Good Shot,” the video shows the Hispanic candidate shooting a piñata elephant, saying: “What happens to elephants who stands around doing nothing for too long?”
The implied message behind the elephant is hard to miss.
The video plays on the Democratic Party’s talking points about the GOP-led House being a do-nothing Congress, which overlooks the true graveyard for most legislation — the Democrat-controlled Senate.
While the media’s reaction to the offensive video is predictable, there’s little doubt that if a Republican candidate made a similar ad they’d be accused of promoting violence against Democrats. Remember the hyperventilation over Sarah Palin’s infamous ‘crosshairs’ ad?
