3. Agree, they are excellent. Problem is, they affect us: King. Bobby.

Another of their adds showed black people in a ghetto surrounding. Republicans don't care about that. Scene should have been closed factories and poor whites.

They need to produce ads that affect his base.

7. I think these Republicans making these ads are aiming the ads at moderate Republicans.

Notice the white people in all the scenes. These ads are designed to persuade white suburban voters away from Trump.

The MAGATs are a lost cause.

9. This

These are aimed at moderate Republicans who claim not to like him but stick with him because of judges, tax cuts, etc., who insist they're not bigots and consistenly try to compartmentalize their support as if they aren't complicit in the worst aspects of him and his presidency.

These are also the people who LOVE talking about how much they LOVE Martin Luther King.

They need to be shamed and only other Republicans can do it.

19. Don't forget the independents - unaffiliated but still voting

If we had gotten a sliver of the independents in 2016, Hillary Clinton would have become our President. These guys at Lincoln Project certainly know that and they're good at aiming their message. That's why these spot ads are so effective. At least I believe they are effective.

The Democratic Party needs to pay more attention to what Lincoln Project is doing and jot down a few notes.

31. The Lincoln Project will forever be republicans; just not insane republicans.

Under ANY republicans, this nation is always in danger of this same thing happening to our country again. The same people on the Lincoln Project protected george bush/dick cheney/donald rumsfeld, and attacked Obama 24/7/365 during his presidency.

I'm forever grateful they will help us get rid of trump, but I also know there will be no quarter once they have a new republican to support.

I so hope the democratic party learns from them during this campaign.

13. I agree with you. The MAGAts are

thrilled to be in an ad showing their support for the racist fraud. But the white suburbanites are capable of feeling shame, and they can be convinced to move their votes to D.

15. These ads appeal to class awareness.

White suburban Republicans don't want to be associated with George Wallace. Even in 1968, they rejected Wallace.

By drawing a direct line between Wallace and Trump, these ads tarnish Trump.

21. And they also don't want to be associated with the ignorant MAGA hatemongers in the ad

They've gotten away with separating themselves from them until now as if they're not in that same bucket. But as I tell people who claim they support Trump for his policies but aren't racist themselves ...

"You may not personally be racist, but you're choosing the side the racists are on and from here on the other side, it's impossible to tell you apart."

Many Trump voters want the tax breaks but also want to pretend that they're not part of what Trump is. They are.

....just about every one has gone viral. The Lincoln Project is doing a great job of campaigning against trump.

As for me, I want to see him lose and Biden win.

37. People more often think of how JFK's assassination changed history,

but the break from the alternate reality of having RFK for President instead of Nixon and Martin Luther King as a presence for another 40 years is much greater.

10. After the tears came the what if -

What if the Kennedy brothers had been able to live their full lives of service to the United States. We lost 3 great men in a very short time: John F. Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy, and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. My heart still hurts when I think about this.

16. I suspect RFK could have been

an even better president than his brother. (I have nothing specific to base it on, other than the "age of aquarius" in which he was running.) And the racists were scared of how much MLK Jr could have accomplished, even becoming president.

Too bad we cannot find an alternate universe in which they were not assassinated.

Dr King, and the Kennedy brothers could capture the peoples interest, inspire their spirits and intellects and inspire a vision of a democracy that served everyone equally and better than the status quo.

it was a huge loss to not experience what he would have grown into.

23. Agree

They're using time for an issue that is already front and center national news. They need to reach Trumpers - MAGAts. Most of them would see this and think it fake news or insulting to their leader. Have they changed any minds here?

They need to question Trump's competence on the pandemic, his appointments, policies. This election is about character, personality, suitability for office. And by the way, do you want 4 more years of this confusion?

He could, as he infamously said, shoot someone on 5th Avenue, and not lose them. These ads are for moderate suburbanite Republicans.

This ad, made by REPUBLICANS, uses the words of RK and MLK

This is why we do politics folks, to change people's hearts, minds, and opinions.

There is nothing better, nor more effective or useful than these spots. The best thing about them for me, is they get under Trump's thin skin.

If you think they are not good enough, try and come up with something better

35. So glad we have the Never Trumpers in our corner this time

But it is kind of embarrassing, or should be, to whomever Democrats hires as their ad runners. Republicans have years, decades of hate radio, even Fox News, experience on how to shape messages and create memorable slogans. And they use that experience in these ads One thing R's know how to do is to go for the jugular. And not afraid of the liberal PC police or Fox News, or anyone in between.

Next time, (if Biden wins) they will turn their attention back on us. For now, the enemy of my enemy......

40. Are they running it on the air in Tulsa?

I'll wait....

The Lincoln project is bullshit...run by a group of enablers who put this prick, his ilk and the tea party in charge because they hated the idea of an erudite and charismatic Black man becoming President of the United States.

I'd have slightly more belief if they'd publicly stand up and be counted rather than hiding behind a PAC...
