I live in Georgia, so I have to live with this stuff. I don't like it at all. I'm not pro-illegal at all. However, this is basically a subtle version of race baiting. And there is something else I don't like. I don't like that hyper-aggressive "good old boy" persona Kemp is trying to put on. There is being a man, and then there are Kemp's ads. I've never seen anything like it. He tries to portray himself as scary. Specifically, I'm talking about the commercial where he's pointing a gun at his daughter's date.
Those ads work because many conservatives are looking for a daddy figure to save them from the various boogeymen they are so paranoid about. The faux tough guy that will use his hillbilly know how to save the world is an enduring GOP trope.

Get it right, it's an F-350. An F-150 ain't big enough to round up all them illegals!

At least the candidate wants to follow immigration laws. Unlike those in California who wants to give free reign to illegals and protect them from prosecution or deportation.

If he has SS troops at the borders preventing all immigrants from entering (both legal and illegal), then I'll be concerned. However, if he is attempting to keep illegal immigrants out, I don't see a problem there. If I tried to run the border in many countries, I'd be shot on the spot or at the very least jailed in a hellhole and be used as a prison *****. What makes you think we should just welcome anyone to waltz across our borders?
Well, the bus says on the back "Follow Me To Mexico". What do you expect me to think?

BTW, go read the rest of my posts.

Well, I will tell you this. Those ads don't work on me. It doesn't make me want to vote for him. I like guns. My father is a gun owner. He doesn't go around acting like some tough guy. I like guns, I am alright with illegals being deported. I don't feel it's necessary to go all "good old boy" in a political ad. To me, it is more than just the persona. It is the message behind it. The faux tough guy thing, I'm thinking it goes over well with some of my neighbors.

Doesn't Georgia have bigger issues than a "Mexican" picking fruit?

Give them an inch and they take a mile. One day it's 'we should leave the law-abiding ones alone, we shouldn't spend local tax dollars on ICE raids' and the next day you're totally overrun, paying for them cradle to the grave.

These ads are so over-the-top they're cracking me up. Perhaps Libby Schaaf would like to lay down in front of the deportation bus like the student with the tank in Tianamen Square.

We have legal immigration for fruit picking. And I'd say drug trafficking and human trafficking, often done by illegals, IS a bigger issue.

And the human trafficking can come from anywhere. Humans have been trafficked on container ships into several ports.

Yes it can, but do you think human smugglers are more likely to come from a country on our border than a country on the other side of the world? Do you actually think there's an equal chance of traffickers from Egypt or Australia living in Georgia than those from Mexico?
