GOP Tells Latinos: Don't Vote

Ad Tells Latinos: Don't Vote, Takes Page From 30 Rock Playbook

In season two of 30 Rock, scheming Republican Jack Donaghy enlists Tracy Jordan as a new GOP spokesman with the hopes of gaining black votes. But halfway into filming a political ad, Tracy realizes that black Americans will always vote Democrat. So instead of trying to get them on board, Jack and Tracy shoot a commercial with a simple message for black voters: don't vote.


The episode is meant to exaggerate political tactics for satirical purposes. But now life is imitating art. A new ad put out by a Republican group is telling Latinos not to vote, plain and simple. It ironically states: take action, don't vote. Univision accepted $80,000 to air the ad on its network. The message is almost too blatant and cynical to believe. But to see it for yourself, read more.

Yeah, it seemed up until the end of the ad that it was going to say, "Don't vote Democrat. Vote Republican." But then it flat-out tells Latinos not to vote.This is seriously sad.

Until the end of the ad when it says "you can no longer take us for granted. Don't vote." Not don't vote democratic. It's "Don't vote." I was fine up until the end. If you don't want the to vote for Democrat party candidates, then say that.

The narration's pretty clear:"The narrator ends saying, <b> "Don't vote this November. </b> This is the only way to send them a clear message. You can no longer take us for granted. <b> Don't vote." </b>The people behind the ad know they in trouble trying to convince Latinos to vote Republican, so they want them out of the contest.
