Democrat candidates are quickly trying to play a Jedi Mind Trick and make you forget they backed “defund the police.”
But we all remember the far-left’s – sometimes fatal – hate of America’s police officers.
Now this top Republican Senator has some strong words of advice for defund the police supporters.
Running like he’s down 5-points
John Kennedy – not the former Democrat President of the United States, but the Republican Senator from Louisiana – is carving out a name for himself in politics.
There is just something about the way Kennedy puts things – blunt, to the point, folksy, and funny.
Senator Kennedy is in no danger of losing his seat in the 2022 Midterm elections this November.
In the jungle primary that will take place in the Bayou State this November, Kennedy is the clear favorite.
Illustrating how far ahead of the pack he is, there is no polling in the race.
Kennedy has raised $21.5 million for his campaign – his nearest opponent, independent journalist, Democrat Gary Chambers, has raised about $1.3 million, and already spent 90% of it.
The Cook Political Report, Inside Elections, and Larry Sabato’s Crystal Ball all rank the race as solid and safe for the GOP.
But that isn’t stopping Kennedy from spending his hard-earned fundraising dollars – and having some fun in the meantime.
Putting it in plain language
The Louisiana Senator is out with his latest campaign ad where he, once again, puts a salient message in a way only he can.

“Violent crime is surging in Louisiana,” Kennedy says at the start of the ad. “Woke leaders blame the police, I blame the criminals. A mom shouldn’t have to look over her shoulder when she’s pumping gas. I voted against the early release of violent criminals and I opposed defunding the police. Look, if you hate cops just because they’re cops, the next time you get in trouble, call a crackhead.”
Kennedy strikes a somber tone in the ad, but still delivers on the folksy straight talk and comedic tones he’s known for.
Winning votes with laughter
His previous political commercials this election cycle have felt more like trailers for a Stand-Up special on HBO Max than a campaign ad.
“I have the right to remain silent, but I just don’t have the ability,” Kennedy says.
The America First Senator offers some free advice for Social Justice Snowflakes who don’t like his brand of “real talk.”
“Go buy yourself an emotional support pony,” Kennedy said in the 40-second clip. “Because I’m not going to shut up.”
“Always be yourself,” Kennedy closes. “Unless you suck.”
Kennedy has another ad out, where in his own folksy way, he takes aim at President Joe Biden’s energy policies.
“Are you ready,” Kennedy asked at the beginning of the video. “Here’s President Biden’s energy policies in a nutshell. First, we’re gonna stop producing our own oil. Then, we’re going to buy oil from foreign countries that hate us so those foreign countries can have more money to buy weapons to try to kill us.”
“Sometimes, I think President Biden is more concerned about the best cure for toenail fungus than he is about saving American jobs,” he continued.
Kennedy asks at the end of the video for “someone” to “please tell the Commander-in- Chief” that neither his “car nor the greatest economy in all of human history runs on fairy dust and unicorn urine.”
