One of former President Donald Trump’s top advisers seeks to remind voters that racism is bad, no matter who its victims are.
According to a Politico report from Monday, America First Legal, a legal watchdog group founded by Stephen Miller, Trump’s former key adviser on immigration, is running campaign ads in Georgia and Florida declaring, “Racism is always wrong. The left’s anti-white bigotry must stop.”
“As our educational advertisements explain, racism is always wrong – regardless of who it is targeted against,” Gene Hamilton, an AFL vice president, explained to Politico.
“The educational advertisements that AFL is running simply inform the American people about something they all know to be true in 2022, but that major news outlets fail to report on.”

The ad is being broadcast over radio stations in several Georgia markets, including Augusta, Savannah, Albany, Columbus and Macon markets, according to Politico. It’s also being aired in Tallahassee.
In full, the 30-second spot says: “When did racism against white people become OK? Joe Biden put white people last in line for COVID relief funds. Kamala Harris said disaster aid should go to non-white citizens first. Liberal politicians block access to medicine based on skin color. Progressive corporations, airlines, universities all openly discriminate against white Americans. Racism is always wrong. The left’s anti-white bigotry must stop. We are all entitled to equal treatment under the law.”
The Free Press has reported on some of what the ad references.
For example, last year we noted that federal courts blocked Biden’s plan to put whites — and more specifically, white men — at the end of the line behind blacks and other minorities for COVID-19 aid for small businesses and for farmers.
The Free Press also reported on Harris’ recent claim that “communities of color” were “most impacted” by Hurricane Ian and concern for “equity” means they are entitled to relief funding first. FEMA Administrator Deanne Criswell was forced to walk that back, saying the federal government would “support all communities.”
The Free Press also spotlighted AFL’s lawsuit against the New York state health department earlier this year after it announced guidelines for monoclonal antibody treatments for COVID.
The department had said blacks and other minorities should be prioritized as “longstanding systemic health and social inequities have contributed to an increased risk of severe illness and death from COVID-19.”
