An old Lyndon Johnson campaign ad has been making the rounds online for its eerie similarity to modern day politics.
It features a faithful Republican who feels alienated and frustrated about the rise of a candidate who is supported by the KKK, and who seems to thrive on anger.
“This man scares me.”
The man then recounts a reoccurring issue where a reporter will quote the candidate, Goldwater, and then the man will deny ever having said the quote. This voter is frightened by that lack of logic.
“You’ll hear a lot about what these guys are against – they seem to be against just about everything. But what are they for?”
