WASHINGTON — Today, American Principles Project (APP) released a new campaign ad highlighting the recent violent riots which have roiled American cities and resulted in the defacing of monuments to America’s founders. The ad also calls out Democrats for encouraging the idea that America was truly founded in 1619 to protect slavery, instead of in 1776 to advance liberty.
The ad urges viewers to ask Joe Biden: “Will he stand up to the anti-American radicals calling for the end to July 4th? Will he stand up for the American founding of 1776? Or will he join those who want to end America as we know it?”
APP will be running the ad on digital platforms for the next two weeks.
Terry Schilling, executive director of APP, released the following statement explaining the purpose of the ad:
Over the last few weeks, we’ve seen an explosion in anti-American sentiment on the radical Left. It is apparently progressive doctrine that America is inherently racist and that our country was founded to further oppression, not liberty. And now, the Democratic Party is more and more embracing this anti-American movement.
We aim to make clear to America’s voters that this is the new dividing line. Do voters agree with progressive Democrats that America is fundamentally racist and evil? Do voters believe that July 4th is not our real Independence Day and that we shouldn’t celebrate it? Do voters want our children taught that America is evil?
These are serious questions that will be on the ballot in November, and we are confident that voters are still largely pro-America, not anti-America.
