Turn Right USA’s offensive attack ad against California Democrat Janice Hahn

Dear God.

The most offensive political video ad since it was revealed that Johnson’s “Daisy” spot was actually created by radical antisemitic environmentalists has just hit the Internet.

This new video is titled “Give us your cash, B–ch!” And it only gets worse from there.

Apparently, Janice Hahn — a Los Angeles councilwoman running as the Democratic congressional candidate in a July 12 California special election — is not well liked by some. The voice-over explains that Hahn “helped [gang members] get out of jail so they could rape and kill again … ” It then launches into the most racist (though some question this), fear-mongering, sexist sing-a-long the political world may ever see, before it all ends in 2012.

Who’s behind this horribly hilarious video that also features a stripper wearing a cut-out Hahn mask? That would be Turn Right USA, a conservative PAC dedicated to fighting the evil George Soros in all his forms. It’s director is”conservative filmmaker” Ladd Ehlinger, whose last masterpieces were the slightly tamer but nonetheless entertaining ads for failed agricultural commissioner candidate Dale Peterson.

Hahn’s actual Republican opponent, Craig Huey had absolutely nothing to do with the video because even George Wallace wouldn’t have had anything to do with the video. [UPDATE: Because Huey has nothing to do with the ad, the perpetually angry liberal women at EMILY’S List, according to a fresh press release, want him to denounce the ad; which is like saying to someone: StupidSaysWhat. “And every hour that passes without Craig Huey condemning this ad and requesting it be taken down is an hour in which voters see what Craig Huey really stands for,” reads the release.]


On his website, Ehlinger has this to say:

Before you charge racism at the ad, consider her one line in the video: “It takes a different kind of person to speak the language.” By that she means, it takes black people to talk to black people. It takes gang members to talk to gang members. They have their own language, we should coddle them. They’re not responsible for their actions if they murder someone, rape someone. They’re a minority.

Ehlinger goes on to say that “All of that’s bunk.” Yes. It certainly is.

    What good does it do to whine and snivel about the radical left socialist machine that has taken over our nation in the last 55 years IF you’re not willing to lay down your life to defend this republic? FREEDOM ISN’T FREE! there is a HUGE cost we must pay to keep it and the first bill paid is to stay vigilant against our enemies. Those without AND those within. Our enemies have tried to thwart us at every turn since this republic was founded and would have done so except for the hand of GOD turning a footstep the other way or catching the eye on something else at a crucial moment.

    WE, America, are responsible for more nations being free to choose their own path than ANY other country in the history of man. It has cost us dearly in lives and yet we seem to be willing to pay the butchers bill so others can have what we do. the RIGHT to plant our feet where we will without some despot or tyrant telling us we cannot! Our countrymen have died in more countries for the freedom of others than any other nation in the history of man!

    At the constitutional congress when the declaration was signed and congress dismissed, as Ben Franklin left the building he was asked by an old woman, “so what is it you have given us” He replied “A REPUBLIC!, IF you can keep it”

    Well, according to the Democrats, comedy is immune to moral sanction, so this parody should be considered comedic social commentary. It does make a clear, legitimate, and resoundingly unambiguous point about the ghetto/rap/gang culture and how the Democrats pander to criminals, as long as it benefits them in the voting booth.

    Is it crude? Yes. Is it accurate? Yes.

      If it wasn’t funny, and played on stereotypes, then I guess it speaks for itself. If they’re trying to bring our attention to something serious, why not treat it as serious and not as a big joke? If they have evidence, like documentation and names and charges on public record, why didn’t they add that to their ad? Why is there no information on the Turn Right USA website? Why is it still just the default Blogspot layout, with no links or anything else? Could it be that they’re not legit, and don’t want people to be able to check them out?

      • truebearing

        You didn’t find it funny. Others did. As far as stereotypes go, I believe you used some in your previous comments. All caricature and parody has to be based in stereotype, or truth. Stereotypes, like cliches, don’t survive long if they don’t contain an element of truth. Parody is necessarily an exaggeration of some behavior, and if there is no truth to it, you wouldn’t understand what is being parodied.

        It seems to me that if you want to check out the veracity of their parody, an interesting idea to begin with, then why would you go to their site? Why not check independent sources? Try this one, for starters: http://mayorsampressrelease.blogspot.com/2011/06/janice-hahn-funds-gang-members.html

        There is no question the ad was crude. Now the question is how much truth is there to their allegations, and it appears to be substantial. Hahn sounds to me like a classic corrupt, pandering Progressive who is wasting tax dollars to buy herself loyalty, and votes.

        Why don’t you google what the police officers who she got removed from the gang control unit have to say about her? She’s as corrupt as hell.

        • sheilanagig

          What stereotypes did I apply to anybody? I certainly didn’t portray black people as gangsters and women as strippers. I never used profanity, which the ad most certainly did. What if kids were to see that ad? Imagine the parents who are going to have to explain to their children what that woman was doing in the ad, or what that word means. Those are some good family values right there. It’s sensationalism and stereotyping, and I think all it did was provide Janice Hahn with a good chance at winning a defamation lawsuit. Just because I think the people who produced the ad have it coming, I hope she does file suit, too.

          Your source has the word “spin” in the title. I’d call that the first red flag that it is not an impartial source. I was looking for something more along the lines of court transcripts or police reports, official documentation. The story you linked to was vague in that it didn’t state any specifics, like names, dates, police reports, that kind of thing. You know, facts.

          Stereotypes don’t survive because there’s an element of truth to them, they survive because it gives people who are so inclined a template which they can apply to groups as a whole, like women or immigrants or minorities, what have you. It’s like mental shorthand, the lazy way to prejudge people you don’t want to take the time to get to know. The ad played on those stereotypes. I wonder what the families of the two men singing in the ad think of their portrayal of themselves in the context of a stereotype.

  • BritCat

    Does raise the question why she hired gang members and whether it is true that she supported their release from jail and whether they actually committed crimes like rape while out there. If this is all untrue that is one thing. If it is true then the add highlights something important. So what are the facts? The situation is not resolved with denunciations, it is resolved with facts.

    I am a Southern Red Neck who grew up in the fifties, a Conservative Republican and I find that ad to be raciest, sexist, and offensive to EVERY citizen of this great Country. There is no room in the Political Arena for this group.

      Love and beauty are in the eyes of the beholder. The following rant from the Daily Caller is a left wing Marxist
      attack on a political advertisement depicting a Marxist LA congressional candidate as a political whore who
      panders to gang members with our tax dollars.

      The rant calls that racist and offensive. I call that the truth, freedom of speech and very effective message presented
      in a viable medium.

      We the People must fight against the Marxist corporate media minions with the same tools they use. It is offensive
      for me to see our tax dollars paid to subsidize gang members and their attacks on our citizens

      It is racist and offensive to target American citizens to be the victims of mass police refusal to arrest these criminal bums. It is racist and offensive to have candidates for pubic servant jobs to use our tax dollars to pay off the worst
      criminal in the country. It is offensive to see candidates pander to specific racial and ethnic blocs of voters to get
      elected instead of pandering to mainstream American citizens.

      I love the advertisement, and think it is beautiful. It is the best of good art form and truth especially truth in advertising something that has been abandoned in most political advertisements. The Global Corporate Marxist open borders policy has destroyed our safety and peace. We must not permit more traitor politicians to get in our congress. We are fighting to get them out.

      It appears the Janet Hahn public servant record is found lacking. It also appears she was willing to sell out the USA American mainstream citizens to promote her political career. That betrayal warrants her depiction as a whore selling
      her self to the highest bidder. We the People need American Public Servants not leaders who serve us based on the written menu.

      The menu for service is the USA constitution rule of law that demands an end to anarchy of open borders and protection of gangs being bred by political corruption.

      By the way lecher NAFTA Newt Gingrich is asking you if you want him for president. There are only two choices: yes or no. They left off the real choice HELL NO! but I still opted for the no vote.

      • sheilanagig

        Do you have documentation I could look at giving details of which “gang intervention specialists” went on to rape or murder? I’d really like to see some reports, because this information wasn’t included in the video or on the website. If you know where to find it, give us a link. After all, if it’s true, those things should be a matter of public record. Is there a news story, even? What were the names of these men? Who did they rape or murder? Do we have any information like that? I’m surprised that the website for this PAC doesn’t include those details, or the video. Surely that would have been one of the things they’d have scrolling over the video somewhere.

    Which is worse – the video or the massacre? Democrats did this “for the children:”
    Bill and Hillary Clinton should be in prison for crimes against humanity for what they did to their fellow citizens at Waco, TX, on April 19, 1993. The Waco Massacre and church burning (it was not a “compound,” it was their church),was the most brutal, heinous violation of civil, human and Constitutional rights in this nation’s history. Innocent men, women and children were attacked with tanks, poison gas (CS gas turns to cyanide when heated) and burned alive. Those who ran from the church were machine-gunned as documented in the movie “Waco, The Rules of Engagement.” If you doubt how bad this was consider that you never hear the left stream media talk about it. They want it erased from history but this memorial site will remain forever: http://www.wizardsofaz.com/waco/waco2.html
    And if that weren’t bad enough, Clinton’s thugs then stuck a machine gun in the face of a 5 year old boy and sent him to the communist gulag known as Cuba: http://www.therealcuba.com/elian_gonzalez.htm

      I do not know how I stumbled across this website, but man am I gald i did. Never could I have imagined such unabashed ignorance and imbecility. Truly a treasure trove of America’s most dim-witted, ideologically brain-washed and down-right moronic loons spouting off on these absurd “conservative” talking points manufactured by the idiotic right-wing talking heads. You can’t script this stuff. Keep it up, half-wits!

      • keepemhonest


        Your comment is BRILLIANT!

      • Jess81

        So, you explain Waco and sending that child back to Cuba. You may disagree with the assessment, but only Janet Reno loves what she did. Explain why Janet Reno and Clinton did the right things in these cases.

        As regards the ad. It is disgusting, but unlike Pelosi and Reid and Wasserman-Schultz, the producer is a total unknown in conservative and Republican politics.

        I’ve said before, I’ll say again. Don’t become what you hate. And wasn’t it a nice thing to have a “debate” without blood-letting? Just sayin…

  • teabagger
