Kentucky Senate Democratic nominee, Charles Booker, released a disgusting ad attacking Sematpr Rand Paul with the suggestion that he’s pro-lynching.

The ad, called ‘powerful’ by garbage media organizations, shows Booker with a noose around his own neck as he attacks Senator Paul.

Via The Blaze:

A Democrat running for Congress against Sen. Rand Paul puts a noose over his head and misleadingly suggests the Kentucky Republican opposed efforts to criminalize lynching in a campaign ad that’s sure to be controversial.

Charles Booker, a former state lawmaker who is the Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate in Kentucky, released a video Wednesday that attacks Paul for opposing an anti-lynching bill in 2020. The ad does not mention why Paul opposed the bill, or that he co-sponsored a new bipartisan version of that legislation this year that went on to become law.

“My opponent?” he continues, as an image of Paul grimacing appears. “The very person who compared expanded health care to slavery. The person who said he would have opposed the Civil Rights Act. The person who single-handedly blocked an anti-lynching act from being federal law.”

“The choice couldn’t be clearer,” Booker states as the camera shifts back to him. “Do we move forward together? Or do we let politicians like Rand Paul forever hold us back and drive us apart?

The ad takes Rand Paul’s remarks and positions out of context, especially with regard to the anti-lynching proposal that he blocked.

The Blaze does the heavy lifting here, explaining why Paul opposed the initial bill and ended up co-sponsoring a better anti-lynching bill with Cory Booker that ended up passing:

As for the claim that Paul opposed anti-lynching legislation, while it is true that in 2020 he held up a bill that would make lynching a federal hate crime, that’s not the full story. Paul said at the time that lynching should be “universally condemned,” but objected to language in the bill that included non-fatal injuries as lynching.

“If you’re gonna call something an anti-lynching bill, but you’re gonna have a new conspiracy charge for someone who has minor bruising, we don’t think that’s appropriate. And someone has to read these bills and make sure they do what they say they’re going to do rather than it be just a big PR effort, and then everybody gets up in arms and wants to beat up anybody who wants to read the bill, and actually make the bill stronger,” he told reporters.

He offered an amendment to the bill that would have added a “serious bodily injury standard,” but the Senate did not adopt his proposal.

In 2022, Paul co-sponsored an updated version of that bill with Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) that addressed his concerns and passed with bipartisan support.

“It wasn’t a popular stand to slow this bill down, but I wanted to do it because, you know, I thought it was the right thing to do,” he told the Courier Journal in a March 1 interview. “And in the end, I think the compromise language will hopefully keep us from incarcerating somebody for some kind of crime that’s not lynching.

“We just wanted to make sure that the punishment was proportional to the crime, and I guess it’s just good news that it finally worked out,” he said.
