House candidate Jerone Davison vows to fight ‘Dem KKK’ with AR-15 ad

A GOP congressional candidate from Arizona ran a campaign ad pledging to support the Second Amendment to defend himself against “Klan-hooded Democrats” with an AR-15.

Former NFL running back Jerone Davison – who is vying to represent Arizona’s 4th congressional district – published the ad with a tweet Wednesday saying, “Make Rifles Great Again.”

“Democrats like to say that nobody needs an AR-15 for self-defense,” Davison can be heard saying in the thirty-second video. “That no one could need all 30 laps.

“But if that rifle is the only thing standing between your family and a dozen angry Klan-hooded Democrats, maybe all you need is this semi-automatic and every 30 rounds.”

The ad often cuts to several people in white hoods and white robes with a donkey printed on the front.

At one point, the large group is seen attacking an apartment building with rakes, hammers, axes, and bats while Davison waits by a window with a pair of sunglasses and a semi-automatic weapon.

The group run away after Davison steps outside the house with the gun, and the commercial ends with a still shot of a white-hooded man sitting in the water before cutting to the Republican looking into the distance.

Davison’s argument for AR-15 legality comes two days after a 22-year-old killed seven people and injured dozens more with an AR-15 in a July 4 parade in Illinois.

Since then, several Democratic lawmakers and gun reform activists have reiterated calls to ban the sale of semi-automatic weapons in the United States.

While many Republicans immediately hailed Davison’s video as “awesome” or the “best promotion ever,” dozens of other social media users remained shocked at the inclusion of the Ku Klux Klan to promote the Second Amendment.

“I don’t know what to think of it. What do you think?” wrote former Congressional candidate Barrington Martin II.

“After years of lying that the GOP establishment was genuinely interested in minority outreach, they are about to be blown away by the fact that new minorities who defy the party will be even more radical than their typical white Base. BlazeTV host Steve Deace tweeted.

“Donald Trump’s presidency normalized exaggeration and absurdity in political advertising. And that alone could be his greatest contribution to the world.” wrote Author Justin O’Donnell.

Davison, who played for the Sacramento Gold Miners in 1994 and the Oakland Raiders from 1996-1997, will face Republicans Kelly Cooper, Dave Giles, Rene Lopez and Tanya Wheeless in the August 2 primary in Arizona.

It’s not the first provocative campaign ad released by a Republican candidate in recent weeks as the GOP eyed to regain control of Congress.

On Tuesday, Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt released a video of himself holding a blowtorch and vowing to crush President Biden’s “socialist agenda.”

“I think Joe Biden is a total disaster. So I’m bringing my blowtorch to his socialist agenda,” he said while lighting the torch.

“As your attorney general, I put an end to Biden’s open borders policy,” Schmitt continues. “I sued to get rid of it [Dr. Anthony] Fauci’s COVID mandates. And I stood with President [Donald] Trump wants to stop voter fraud.

“In the Senate, I’m going to fire up the Biden Democrat,” the ad concludes. “I agree with this message because now is the time to take back our country.”

Just two weeks earlier, former Missouri governor and Senate candidate Eric Greitens published an ad urging primary voters to vote for a “RINO [Republican in name only] hunting license”.

“I’m Eric Greitens, Navy Seal, and today we’re going RINO hunting,” Greitens says in the 38 second ad.

In the disturbing video, the Republican can be seen holding a double-barreled rifle while flanked by several men in tactical gear holding a battering ram, smoke bomb and what appear to be semi-automatic weapons.

“The RINO feeds on corruption and is marked by cowardice,” Greitens says in the video, before the group forces entry into an empty house.

“Join the MAGA crew, get a RINO hunting permit. There’s no boxing limit, no tagging limit and it doesn’t expire until we save our country,” he continued.
