The Democrats knew it was coming, but that can’t make it any more pleasant to watch. The Republican National Committee has released its first “Democrats defend the brutal MS-13 gang whose motto is ‘Kill, Rape, Control'” ad — and it’s appropriately brutal.
The MS-13 fiasco began with the media falsely reporting on President Trump’s condemnation of the notorious gang as “animals,” which the media distorted to be a condemnation of all illegal immigrants, despite the transcripts of the incident clearly showing that was not his intent. Even after the Associated Press and a few other outlets publicly admitted to misreported his comments, several Democratic leaders continued to claim disingenuously that Trump was “dehumanizing” all illegal immigrants.
The unfortunate star of the ad is none other than Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, whose “spark of divinity” lecture directed at Donald Trump earned instant infamy. Here’s the key excerpt from Pelosi’s defense of all “undocumented immigrants,” which includes murderous MS-13 members:
We believe — some of us who are attracted to the political arena, to government and public service — that we are all God’s children, there is a spark of divinity among every person on earth, and that we all have to recognize that as we respect the dignity and worth of every person and as we recognize our responsibilities with that spark of divinity within us. And so when the president of the United States says about undocumented immigrants, “These aren’t people, these are animals,” you have to wonder, does he not believe in the spark of divinity, the dignity and worth of every person?
Using Pelosi’s self-serving rant as its focal point, the RNC released the following ad on Facebook Tuesday:
And here’s video via C-SPAN of Pelosi’s comments the week that Trump’s “animals” remark went viral:
Excerpt of Trump’s misrepresented comments below:
SHERIFF MIMS: Thank you. There could be an MS-13 member I know about — if they don’t reach a certain threshold, I cannot tell ICE about it.
THE PRESIDENT: We have people coming into the country, or trying to come in — and we’re stopping a lot of them — but we’re taking people out of the country. You wouldn’t believe how bad these people are. These aren’t people. These are animals. And we’re taking them out of the country at a level and at a rate that’s never happened before. And because of the weak laws, they come in fast, we get them, we release them, we get them again, we bring them out. It’s crazy.
