A group called the National Republican Trust Pac is airing this disturbing ad to fight the construction of a mosque near ground zero in Manhattan.
The ad refers to all Muslims as “they” and links them all to terrorism and the killing of Americans. Specifically, the ad claims that a house of worship near ground zero would be a declaration of victory by those who attacked us.
The organization’s website states that “[t]he NRT is committed to continuing the legacy of Ronald Reagan.”
It is now incumbent on Republicans to denounce this ad and the obvious anti-Muslim sentiments expressed within it. It is doubly distasteful to see some using our collective loss at 9-11 for such hateful purposes.
