In its most recent online campaign ad, America’s Liberty PAC – which supports Rand Paul’s presidential bid – took shots at Barack Obama and fellow Republicans perceived as being weak on individual liberty.
The 60-second spot used stereotypical monster truck rally commercials as a starting point before quickly launching into attack mode. When it comes to White House hopeful Ted Cruz, some say the video went too far.
Referring to Cruz as one of Obama’s “so-called conservative accomplices,” the ad goes on to disparagingly nickname him “the Capitulating Canadian.”
In addition to social media posts like this one…
…even conservative media outlets joined in the criticism.
A Hot Air review of the ad found it to be “pretty low budget and not particularly innovative or clever.” The article later decried the commercial’s producers for “playing into the entire neo-birther nonsense and calling Cruz a Canadian,” an intraparty squabble sure to delight the left-leaning press.
