That is election advertisement? I don't know how anyone would take him seriously. He stated mostly non-issues and goes on a fear mongering tour without showing any solutions. In short, no reason to vote for him.

Las line should be, \"If you elect me, I'll bring the Twilight Zone to you.\"

Wow, this guy has ZERO idea how American politics works if he thinks a FRESHMAN congressman would have the authority or influence to do ANYTHING significant, much less \"fixing\" immigration, terrorism, homosexuality, secular humanism, and everything else he mentions.

In all fairness, there's really no need to provide solutions when the problems don't exist in the first place.

Hey, let's vote for the guy with the Twilight Zone ad!

... I fear to see the people who'll feel persuaded by that commercial.

What is not apparent from the ad and what most may not realize is that Robinson is black. I only bring this up because it is such a departure from what most blacks belief politically and is even more extremely to the right than most of the conservatives in this area. I live in an adjacent congressional district to where he is running and this is the 2nd consecutive election he has run for election. He narrowly lost the first time around in a run-off, but the campaign ads are pretty much the same material if not a bit stronger than last time.

Edit. I should have said lost the Republican Party primary in a run-off. The woman that defeated him in the primary went on to win the election.

Yeah, like America was ever like Leave it to Beaver.
Not!
Fear monguering at it's finest. He'll have the retard vote all sown up.

@Bigevildan:

He makes it look like te problems exist (Which I stated by saying he stated mostly non-issues). Therefore he should at least have some (fictional) solutions to his (fictional) problems to promote himself as the saviour of current America.

What he did now is like a plumber going to a house, convince them they have a leak and then walk away after handing them his card in the hope that they will call him to fix the leak.

It just doesn't work that way with rational people.

It's still hard for me to see why this fear of homosexuality should be such a political issue. They lump it along side the war on terrorism, as if homosexuality is going to be the next big battle front (it already is to some of these people). They preach freedom by suppressing freedom!

Just when one thinks politics can't get any stupider...

To some people, homosexuality is a bigger threat than terrorism. To them, both terrorists and homosexuals (and, let's face it, liberals as well) want to destroy their narrow-minded version of \"America,\" but being gay isn't illegal....yet.

Hold on.... yes. Please let this guy become the republican candidate. Please let it happen.

Because if it does, democrates should win in a land slide victory.

That or I still just have faith in humanity...

Maybe this guys should be called \"black Hitler\". Literally.

How odd that this African-American politician should think that the perfect, ideal \"America\" is represented by \"Leave It to Beaver,\" a show that failed to even acknowledge the existence of black America.

Running in North Carolina...This will probably be effective.

Robinson's been using a \"Twilight Zone\" theme at least since the 2004 election. This ad might be from then.

Possibly, but I don't remember this particular one from '04. I think this is a new one unveiled for this year's campaign.

This guy must be a relative of Jim Robinson from Freak Regurgitation.

That, and this is so bad it looks like a YouTube Landover Baptist candididate.

This would be a better parody than most actual parodies I've seen. Too bad it's realsville.
