A couple of weeks ago we detailed how the Des Moines Register refused to publish an op-ed by Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds over her use of the scientific term “biological boy.”

Now the Register is claiming Gov. Reynolds released an ad that is “racist.”

Here is the ad:

Congresswoman Cori Bush: And defunding the police has to happen…
Gov. Reynolds: Watching the news you wonder, has the rest of the country lost its mind?

Gov. Reynolds: Attacks on police…
Gov. Reynolds: Open borders…
Gov. Reynolds: Paying people not to work…

Gov. Reynolds: Aren’t you glad you live in Iowa?
Voice Over: Governor Kim Reynolds…

Gov. Reynolds: Here we still have common sense. We kept businesses open and kids in school. We cut taxes and support our police. Because in Iowa, America still works.

The Register wrote:

“In 10 days since the 30-second commercial was released, its unsubtle message distinguishing mostly white Iowa from dangerous ‘others’ has been denounced over and over in the news media and on social media. We feel compelled to add our voice: The ad is dehumanizing. It’s racist. It’s embarrassing. It’s indefensible. It should be beneath any Iowa elected official.”

I know, I know. After hearing the criticism of the ad, I had to watch it again. So, here…

Radical Leftist Rep. Cori Bush is shown promoting defunding the police. The border crisis is featured. Attacks on law enforcement are featured. And government benefits for those who refuse to work are featured.

Nothing about race. Nothing about “others.” Unless, the Register is supporting the idea that there is an element of race involved in all of those topics — which, of course, would be racist on its own.

The Register claims the ad tells people who “look different from most Iowans” that they are “difference and, even worse, inferior.”

Hmmmmmm. I just want to take a moment to point out a couple of things…

Oh, and there’s this quote from President Joe Biden…

“There are people who supported (President Trump) because they like the fact that he is engaged in the politics of division. They really support the notion that, you know, all Mexicans are rapists and all Muslims are bad and…dividing this nation based on ethnicity and race.”

But we don’t even have to go as far back as 2020…

“The MAGA Republicans don’t just threaten our personal rights and economic security, they’re a threat to our very democracy,” Biden said. “It’s not just Trump, it’s the entire philosophy that underpins the – I’m going to say something – it’s like semi-fascism.”

But yeah, yeah… it is totally Reynolds’ commercial driving division and hate and racism and whatever other calamity claimed by the Democrats running the desperate Des Moines Register.

Let’s re-run that Reynolds ad to see if we can pick up on the racism one more time…

Whoops. That clip was actually President Barack Obama disparaging Hispanic voters who supported President Trump.

That was totally fine by the Democrat DSM Register. But this commercial is clearly crossing a line…

The Register actually takes issue with the line that asks if the rest of the country has lost its mind when Bush’s defund the police clip is played.

Seriously. Has the Register seen the consequences of soft-on-crime Democrat policies combined with the defund movement? Or have they completely ignored it?

The Register highlights its opinion that Bush “vaguely resembles” Deidre DeJear, the Democrat nominee for Iowa governor.

The Register editorial board claims that “regardless of the merit of underlying policies, messages like this will never make Iowa a better place.”

Feelings over facts.

That’s the Des Moines Register for you.

The editorial was written by Lucas Grundmeier. Grundmeier likely has an axe to grind with Gov. Reynolds after she let the world know of the Des Moines Register’s policy to not use the term “biological boy” and instead using the phrase “child assigned male at birth” when referencing, well, biological boys.

More feelings over facts from the Register.

Now maybe the Register assumes all people who want to defund the police are of a certain race. Maybe the Register assumes all people who take advantage of the open borders are of a certain race. Maybe the Register assumes all people who attack police are of a certain race. And maybe the Register assumes all people who are paid not to work by the government are of a certain race.

But it isn’t Gov. Reynolds who makes those racist assumptions — it’s the Des Moines Register.
