Those are the millions Marks plans to turn to get his ad on television. He said that unlike other super PACs, he is reaching out to small donors, like the ones who helped him get his 2000 ad tying Al Gore to Al Sharpton and his 2008 commercial portraying Obama as mocking the Bible on the airwaves. Marks wishes to target “blue-collar Democrats” in swing states like Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Florida and Wisconsin.
Not everyone is a fan of Marks or his ads. The liberal group ThinkProgress condemned the spot as “obvious race-baiting” and “riddled with factual errors,” claiming Marks is merely “using an Orwellian name to inject racism into yet another campaign through smears.”
In 2008, the Obama campaign website Fight the Smears denounced another Marks production: “The video takes 5 sentences out of a 4,500-word speech Barack gave in 2006 completely out of context to stoke division and hatred.”
“This isn’t the biggest issue in the election,” Marks allowed. “But it’s one that should be discussed.”
“Attorney General Eric Holder called us cowards because we don’t talk enough about race,” Adams said in an e-mail. “So lets talk.”
