After Hillary Clinton lost an election to the most unpopular Republican presidential candidate in modern American history, the Left insisted that the American people were a bunch of racists. That, of course, followed on Hillary’s campaign message that half of all Trump voters were racist deplorables.

Seeking to capitalize on their horrible 2016 performance, the Democrats have apparently decided to double down. On Friday, Hillary campaign spokesperson Brian Fallon went after Republican Virginia gubernatorial candidate Ed Gillespie by suggesting that Gillespie stood with the white supremacist Charlottesville protesters:

Fallon has no evidence to support this slander, but that didn’t stop him. And he’s not the only Democrat making such claims. A Democratic mailer earlier this week compared Gillespie with the torchlight Nazi sympathizers, with the caption, “On Tuesday November 7th, Virginia Gets To Stand Up…To Hate.” The ad continued, “This is our chance to stand up to Trump, Gillespie, and hate.”

The ad was approved by Democratic gubernatorial candidate Ralph Northam, lieutenant governor candidate Justin Fairfax and Attorney General Mark Herring.

This is disgusting, especially considering that Gillespie not only stated that there was no “moral equivalency” between white supremacists and counterprotesters, but that there were no “fine people” marching along the neo-Nazis in Charlottesville.

If the Left truly wants to paint all of its opponents as Nazis, they can expect to keep losing elections.
