Shame­ful tac­tics in po­lit­i­cal ads

The Morning Journal (Lorain, OH) - - OPINION -

I re­call, when I was a child, dis­torted or grotesque pho­tographs of Ja­pa­nese, Ger­man and in some cases Ital­ian soldiers, were pub­lished in news­pa­pers and mag­a­zines to de­mo­nize them and to in­still fear. Even comic books were filled with such il­lus­tra­tions. It worked. That was then. This is to­day. I am ap­palled by the at­tempt, by both po­lit­i­cal par­ties to use the same shame­ful tac­tics in their po­lit­i­cal ads to­day.

These ads are mean, dis­hon­est, and just plain ridicu­lous.

They don’t in­still fear in me. They in­sult me!

Can­di­dates of ei­ther party who ap­prove such ads on their be­half have noth­ing to be proud of.
