The advert was promoting a new Republican-supporting Pac, New Faces GOP, based in California, which describes itself as helping to identify “the next generation” of GOP leaders.
Elizabeth Heng, of Fresno, California, who lost in a race to be a congresswoman last year, narrates the advert, saying: “Mine is the face of freedom … my skin is not white. I’m not outrageous, or racist, or a socialist. I’m a Republican.”
Ocasio-Cortez hit out at the advert on Twitter, saying: “Republicans are running TV ads setting pictures of me on fire to convince people they aren’t racist. Life is weird!
“Know that this wasn’t an ad for young conservatives of color – that was the pretense. What you just watched was a love letter to the GOP’s white supremacist case.”
Heng responded to Ocasio-Cortez on Twitter.
“Are you really calling me a racist? … I’m calling all Democrats out for supporting an evil ideology. Or are you just in Congress to hang out with celebrities and tweet out ridiculous ideas like the green new deal?”
ABC faced criticism for allowing the advert to run.
Bend the Arc, a national Jewish organization, said: “This is right out of the white nationalist playbook. No news network should be profiting off such hatred.”
Johnny could only sing one note and the note he sang was this: “RACIST!”
