Nevada Republican congressional candidate runs xenophobic ad

Mark Amodei, a Republican candidate for Nevada’s 2nd Congressional District, is running a xenophobic, fear-mongering ad showing Chinese soldiers marching in Washington D.C.


Female narrator speaking English with a supposedly “Chinese” accent:

“Once upon a time, America became its own worst enemy. With all their borrowed money right now, they kept spending out of control. Their President Obama just  kept raising the debt limit and their independence became a new dependence. As their debt grew, our fortune grew and that is how our great empire rose again.”

Mark Amodei speaking to camera:

“It’s not too late to start this nightmare. I’m Mark Amodei and I approve this message because as your Congressman I will never vote to raise Obama’s debt limit and risk our independence.”

Watch the ad:

Amodei’s racist, scapegoating attacks conveniently ignore the real culprits of the high U.S. debt: Republicans who voted to hand out gratuitous tax breaks to millionaires while fighting two simultaneous wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The Bush tax breaks would add $3.3 trillion to the national debt in 10 years and the two wars have cost the U.S. more than $1.4 trillion since 2001. How’s that for fiscal responsibility?
