Sheri Few is running one of the most far-right campaigns in recent memory as she seeks to represent South Carolina‘s 5th Congressional District. She wants to convince all she isn’t a “weak politician.”
In her latest campaign ad, Few holds a military style rifle and goes on a rant about politicians who voted to take down the Confederate flag at the State House grounds. That decision came after Confederate flag lover Dylann Roof’s racially motivated attack during a prayer service at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston that left nine people dead.
“Weak politicians are too quick to blame a horrible tragedy on a flag, or a gun, or even free speech, and that’s how bad laws are made.”
Rev. Eric S.C. Manning of Emanuel AME Church, where those nine people were murdered, denounced the ad and asked Few to take it down, calling her out for using a tragedy for political gain.
Few refuses to remove it. She has previously run unsuccessfully for the House of Representatives in 2010, and in 2014 for South Carolina Superintendent of Education she also released an ad targeting LGBTQ members of the military and went after gay marriage. Few opposes
“radical Supreme Court decisions, like those that forced legal abortions and gay marriage on all 50 states.”
Poor thing. She doesn’t seem too bright does she? PERFECT for today’s political climate (denier).
