Dems fake ad to attack GOP candidate in Arizona (like this is news)

You may recall the Democrat shenanigans in the Kansas Senate race, as we reported here. Not surprisingly, progressive socialists in Arizona seem to have the same fever. Remeber the ad and propaganda about former Governor Mitt Romney causing people to lose jobs and even alleging he was responsible for a woman’s death? Looks like they tried to do to the same in the Gubernatorial race in Arizona but, oops, got caught.

According to the Washington Free Beacon, “A new ad in Arizona attacks Republican gubernatorial candidate Doug Ducey, the former CEO of Cold Stone, for causing a group of the chain’s franchise owners to “lose everything.”

“However, all the victims presented in the spot are just stock photos from Getty Images. The misleading ad by Restore Arizona’s Future PAC was paid for with “major funding” from the Democratic Governors Association (DGA). The ad begins with four forlorn faces of former Cold Stone franchise owners who “lost everything” because of Ducey’s “dishonest business practices.”

The problem is – ready? — the faces used were never Cold Stone Creamery franchise owners, oops! Folks, you just cannot make this stuff up, but it once again displays the lack of integrity and character of today’s progressive socialist Democrat party.

The misleading ad by Restore Arizona’s Future PAC was paid for with “major funding” from the Democratic Governors Association (DGA), check it out here.

The Beacon says “the ad’s first image, presented with the caption, “What if you lost everything?” was found to be a generic “Sad Woman” on Getty. The other woman presented in the ad also is a Getty “Sad Woman.” The group had many options, as Getty provides 795 pages of “Sad Woman” stock photos. Former Cold Stone franchisee number two is actually Getty’s “Mature Man.” The ad used a man from Getty’s “Why Series” as Ducey’s final victim. “Ducey made a fortune, they lost everything,” says the ad.”

Now, there’s nothing wrong with using stock photos but when you represent the people as something they’re not, then there is a problem. The inference is that these are indeed Cold Stone Creamery franchise owners who “lost everything.”

But for the low to no information voter who sees these ads? Then again, I presume the DGA would have them taken down. I believe you get my point — nothing ever has to be true, just said. Just like the ad Nancy Pelosi’s House Majority Fund ran against me in 2012 insinuating that I wanted people to die because I didn’t support using stem cells from babies – that part was omitted. They used a little girl and the question was, “Why does Allen West want me to die?” I didn’t respond to it because I figured folks were smarter than that — but they were not. And we all know there is research that affirms stem cells can be acquired from other means anyway.

This is what politics in America has become — chicanery from slick political consultants — nothing about issues and solutions, because that stuff isn’t sexy and cool. And who is to blame? Yep, the American electorate, because these slicksters know voters don’t do any due diligence, they just tune in and see a quick 30-second blurb and make their decision — a tactic brilliantly used to market and deceive America into voting for Obama not once, but twice.

And as always, when caught with the hand in the cookie jar, well, you know what happens. The Beacon reports that “the ad notes that its funding was provided by the DGA, but the DGA’s deputy communications director said it had no information on the ad because it is not allowed to have “any coordination” with IE groups. Restore Arizona’s Future PAC could not be reached for comment.”

No one is responsible but you can bet one thing for certain, if they had not been caught and Doug Ducey was defeated in the Arizona Gubernatorial election – they’d all be together toasting with high dollar champagne and complimenting themselves on how great the ad worked out. Truly disgusting, truly despicable, truly Democrat — and you know that if this was done by Republicans it would be ALL over ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, PBS…heard anything? Of course not.

As it turns out that is almost verbatim for an incessant ad ran here for a local primary State Senate race pitting the incumbent and challenger. Both are republicans and the incumbent is a converted democrat who forgot he switched to republican for the last election and continued to vote in step with Gov Coumo. He lost the primary and now says he will run as an Independent which should guarantee a democrat victory by splitting the vote.

The left…running scared are up to new tricks and are running sleeper agents. Please do not vote for anyone who’s record shows they do not know what the Constitution is and how to uphold it. There is one candidate (cant remember which state out west) who said he will decide who he will caucus with when he sees who wants to get things done. That is sleeper agent liberal double speak. Please watch out for it. They would like nothing better than to run a libertarian who is really a liberal. They win if he splits the ticket.

Wait a second Mr West… did the ad lie about what Ducey did? No. The stock photos in the beginning of the ad, before mentioning Coldstone creamery employees were misleading. But as usual… apologists like you are deliberately trying to deflect from the message of the ad, which is, in fact, true. Are you going to deny that the accusation is true? Nope… didn’t think so. just deflect and complain about the stock photos to create the impression the ad is false. And a shill like you is the last person who should ever point fingers about being misleading. Oh,… Read more »

[[ The stock photos in the beginning of the ad, before mentioning Coldstone creamery employees were misleading.]]

So you approve of deception. Typical of your ilk.

[[ And a shill like you ]]

Oh the irony!

Brendan
Guest

You continue to make excuses to deflect.
Typical of your ilk.

The stock photos were not meant to be coldstone employees but conservative defenders are making that allegation and it is pathetic.
Their argument (which you seem to defend) is that the charges leveled in the ad (which are actually true) should be disregarded because of photos of people in the beginning of the commercial that the ad never said were employees.

No.

Atta libocrite! I expect nothing less than endorsing sleaziness from you.

The fact that the pictures used were fake franchise owners points to the fact the whole ad is fake. If they couldn’t find any franchise owners where were screwed over, and had to resort to this kind of fraud, shows the desperation the left is going through.

The fact that they can’t deny the charges and can only focus on the pictures shows the desperation the right is going through.

So what is the other point of the ad? People couldn’t sell ice cream? I seem to be missing something…but is the point (after the false pics) that they bought a franchise…and failed? Well duh. Business is risky. Everyone who ever started a business takes risk. Maybe someone can help out with more info here. But sometimes I see someone open a franchise store in my town and I think…whaaa? they think they can sell that much yogurt …right next to the ice cream store? Maybe they will …maybe they won’t …I tend to see some flaws in their thinking…but… Read more »

Brendan, you need to look up the facts before you start throwing accusations around. The people that lost their franchises while Ducey was in charge of Cold Stone lost those franchises through bad business practices. The accusations that he caused them to lose their franchises has been debunked by both liberals and conservatives on a plethora of sites. Get a clue.

It’s like saying congressman Ryan wanted to throw grannys off the cliff. The people that make those ads should be sued. Forget sueing. It should just be a crime to lie bald faced to the American people.

I’m an Independent voter. There was a day I looked at both political parties and tried to choose who I thought would be the best candidate, or more often than not who I thought would do the least damage, because quite frankly I saw flaws in both. However, after living through six years of what I consider the most corrupt administration, gaining an understanding of what the new Democratic party represents, listening to Liberal pundits flat out lie to me on the news and most news stations avoid telling the public what we need to know, and witnessing the downfall… Read more »

I did lose everything, my job, my home, and my ex-wife took my savings before she left, too. A conservative, libertarian minded lesbian friend took me in. It took eleven months to get my own place. Boarding school educated and college degreed, I spent more than a year as a day laborer. I finally found steady employment on the docks, with a non-union stevedore. I averaged 3008 hours a year for three years there. In the middle of that day laboring time, we took in a friend who had become homeless, due to alcoholism. We helped him get sober, and… Read more »

Not the fault of the voters. Many just are who they are…less informed than the rest of us. So the fault is squarely on the liars. They should be called out. They should be charged in some way. There should be a price to pay. It is one thing to be wrong and not know it. Another to consciously misinform the American People. It’s called fraud.
