In an amazing ad, New York Democratic state assemblyman Dov Hikind, an orthodox Jew, shows himself being inundated with letters from Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) asking him for a donation, and finally cuts loose with the manifold reasons he would never support the Democratic Party, erupting, “Dear Senator Schumer: Today’s Democratic Party does not deserve our support!”

The ad begins with Hikind arriving at his home, and finding a letter on his doorstep. The camera zooms in on the envelope, showing it with Schumer’s return address. An animated cloud appears on the screen with the caption inside it reading, “Give money to the Democrats?”

A clock appears on the screen with its hands moving furiously to indicate the passage of time; then Hikind arrives home again to pick up another letter on his doorstep. As he opens it, the cloud reappears, this time saying, “Again, Senator?!” The camera focuses on the text of the letter, which reads, “Senate Majority 2018 exists to run independent, take-no-prisoners campaign and fight back against the right-wing fundraising machine.” Hikind shrugs, then enters his home.

Back to the furiously moving clock: Hikind arrives home after being dropped off there; he picks up a third letter deposited on his doorstep, perusing the envelope as the cloud appears; this time the cloud reads, “He’s got to be kidding!”

The clock runs again; this time Hikind is seated in his dining room studying a Jewish text when his wife comes through the front door, holding yet another envelope from Schumer. After she hands him the envelope, she stands behind him waiting for him to open it. They converse; Hikind says back to her, “They stand with Louis Farrakhan! Elevate Keith Ellison! Espouse socialism! Promote Linda Sarsour! Back the racist BDS!” He hurls the envelope across the table.

A montage follows in which letter after letter from Schumer drops on the table as Hikind is either studying, working at his computer or reading the newspaper.

Finally a simple blank screen card appears on the screen, reading, “Dear Senator Schumer: Today’s Democratic Party does not deserve our support!”

On October 9, Hikind blasted New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand for associating with anti-Semitic Women’s March organizer Linda Sarsour, who had introduced Gillibrand at a "#CancelKavanaugh" rally. After quoting some of Sarsour’s notorious tweets, Hikind snapped:

These are the words and the tweets of Linda Sarsour, who more recently said that she was honored and privileged to be on stage with Rasmea Odeh, Rasmea Odeh was convicted in the murder of two students who were murdered in Jerusalem in a store shopping for the Sabbath. Linda Sarsour was “privileged” to be with Ms. Odeh. How is it possible that my senator, Senator Gillibrand, associates with Linda Sarsour?”

Senator Gillibrand, it is not a secret that your aspirations — that you are interested in running for the presidency … Senator Gillibrand, I know you. I know you stand for the principles that make America great. I know that you are a person who does not accept any kind of racism and anti-Semitism. But Senator, you cannot sell out the principles that you have always lived by simply because you want to be president and you have to appeal to people on the extreme Left. When it comes to racism and anti-Semitism, there is no compromising.
