Dan Fanelli's Blunt Racist Political Ad

Dan Fanelli is running for congress for Florida District 8. 

Found this ad and a reaction by Poet Amal Ghobril.   This is racial profiling at it's best.

Unreal.  So seemingly impossible that I went and checked Snopes, lest I end up the pigeon.  This is only the pre-tragedy though.  The real tragedy will come when this sweeps him to victory.

Heres the Washington Post article, which doesn't really condem it. http://voices.washingtonpost.com/plum-line/2010/05/gop_house_candidate_runs_tv_ad.html?wprss=plum-line

And here is the CBS one, again no condemnation.  http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-503544_162-20004214-503544.html

SNL should just run that as part of its regular program.

Okay, I actually took the 6 hrs to upload that clip, to see it.

 

Actually glad I did.

 

At the end, the music and voices actually sound like First Nations drummers and singers.

 

Granted  never replayed it to see it again to make sure, once was enough.

Can't be real. Where would they get the arab guys to be in it? Probably was gouig to be a clip on The Colbert Report and it leaked out. Ironic or something.

What makes you think they are Arab?  I get your state of disbelief, I am in it too.

The guy looked Italian to me......I mean the last guy, the first 2 did not look "Arabic" to me either though.

Because they were speaking Arabic fluently? I'm guessing it was fluently since I don't speak arabic.

I don't find it surprising at all.

A bit late but; Holy fucking fruit loops.

I can't believe that's a real add.
