Given how terrible Democrats are at, well, everything, it’s not surprising that their media water carriers have got their work cut out for them. But this Yahoo News scoop on Virginia GOP gubernatorial candidate Ed Gillespie shows just how desperate they really are:

Whoa, you guys. Whoa:
Ed Gillespie often insists that the gubernatorial election in Virginia should mainly be a dialogue about the deeply researched policy papers he’s put out on seemingly every topic under the sun.
And while that may be true, the Republican’s campaign might be best known at this point for a series of TV ads in which photos of heavily tattooed Latino men are displayed as the words “KILL, RAPE, CONTROL” flash across the screen.
Well, yeah. Because the “heavily tattooed Latino men” are MS-13 gang members.
You misspelled "MS-13"

You fools, did you even research this gang?
— Chrystal (@schexn1) October 18, 2017
yahoo “news” can’t figure out what MS 13 is…😂
— K.V. (@vanmetkj) October 18, 2017
so, i was doing some research and it turns out ms-13 is hispanic. who knew?

“Latino” men make up MS13. Its just the way it is, it’s not racist so why do you make it sound like it is?
— An American Voice 👠 (@_Tiredoftheshit) October 18, 2017
Because when all else fails, play the “racism” card.
But it’s hard to imagine Gillespie running an ad like his MS-13 spot a few years ago, because for over a decade he’s been a leader of the Republican effort to bring Latinos into the GOP and tone down anti-immigration rhetoric. The inflammatory nature of the TV ad illustrates to many observers how even the most moderate Republicans are being pulled to the hard right by the Republican Party base.
Good. Lord. Gillespie’s ad isn’t about demonizing Latinos are catering to “the hard right.” It’s about the very real threat MS-13 poses to Virginians. See, that “RAPE, KILL, CONTROL” thing? That’s kinda their slogan.
Yeah, that's the motto of MS-13, the gang depicted there. Great journalism there, kids.

Yeah, the quote is from the motto of the gang members pictured.

Does Yahoo have any actual journalists who look up meaning to phrases? That is the MS-13 motto.
— LemonJuice Bluecheck (@bradcundiff) October 19, 2017
Because that is MS-13’s motto you imbeciles
— 🇺🇸Eagle Scout🇺🇸 (@fickets_) October 19, 2017
You misspelled "featuring MS-13 gang members and their motto", you hacks.
— Patrick-or-Treat (@jd2319) October 18, 2017
I don't understand? What's the problem? That's MS-13's mantra
— Garth Wakeford (@HamptonsRugby) October 18, 2017
Hey Yahoo news…do you KNOW ANYTHING about MS13? Their motto is "mata, viola, controla"…Kill, Rape, Control
Please declare your agenda!

Thats is LITERALLY the motto of MS-13! That IS what they say they do. He's making a point. Why does the left want to sugar coat things?
— DarthRepublican (@roguerepub) October 18, 2017
Because…they are MS-13 members?WTF is wrong with the media?Actually, I'm a latino, but of course, I don't want those people on the streets
— Courageous Nation (@courageousUSA) October 18, 2017
No one is saying ALL Latinos are gang members you absolute lunatics. These things are happening! Facts aren't racist
— Cristina (@___cristinalee_) October 18, 2017
But facts ARE pesky things. Aren’t they, Yahoo News?
Either you didn't know that was MS-13s motto and ignorantly ran this, or you did and knowingly lied. Either way, you are #FakeNews
