Watch: Black GOP Candidate Ad ‘Goes There’ Leaving Democrats Shellshocked

A black Republican candidate in Arizona has shocked Democrats and they have no idea how to respond.

Arizona Republican Jerone Davison cut an ad for his campaign showing him using an AR-15 rifle to defend his home against members of the KKK.

Davison narrated the video showing him drinking coffee and praying as members of the Klan threaten his home outside.

“Democrats like to say that no one needs an AR-15 for self-defense. That no one could possibly need all 30 rounds,” Davison says, as the Klan members approach.

The video then shows Davison stepping out of his home armed with a rifle, which scares the intruders away.

“But when this rifle is the only thing standing in between your family and a dozen angry Democrats in Klan hoods, you just might need that semi-automatic. And all 30 rounds,” he says.

Davison posted the video to Twitter Wednesday morning, writing, “Make Rifles Great Again.”

The 30-second ad is going viral and has been seen more than 500,000 times at the time of this article’s publication.

The ad highlights the controversial history of the Ku Klux Klan, a white supremacist terrorist organization that used violence and intimidation against white and black Republican leaders to disenfranchise black Americans. The Klan sought to reestablish white supremacy in southern states and supported the Democratic Party against Reconstruction-era Republicans in the 1870s.

The KKK reemerged in the 1920s as a racist and nativist hate group that burned crosses and denounced immigrants, Catholics, Jews, African-Americans, and organized labor. It campaigned for pro-segregation Democrats in the South and opposed the Civil Rights Movement through the 1960s.

The KKK was so bad in the 1870s that the Grant administration was forced to create the Justice Department in order to handle the prosecutions because they were so embedded in communities.
