A very racist advertisement from the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee was put out a few weeks ago, against Republican Congressmen Bob Schaffer from Colorado who’s grandparents were born in Ukraine. Schaffer served actively as co-chairman of the Congressoinal Ukrainian Caucus and made frequent trips to Ukraine during his service in the House of Representatives, including being a member of the US delegation monitoring the parliamentary and local elections in Ukraine.
The ad below is very anti-Ukrainian and the Mexican mariachi music is also quite insulting:
It’s very interesting how theytwisted the quote from “he accomplished more in that country [Ukraine] with less effort than I have in my own district” to “he helped the Ukraine more than his own district…”.
Travelling between Ukrainian embassies, the torch will be ceremoniously transferred from country to country by Ukraine’s ambassadors or consular representatives following which every community will have an opportunity to organize events around the Flame.
