In the ad, Ellmers and a narrator refer interchangeably to "the Muslims," "the terrorists" and the organizers of Park51 in New York as if they are one and the same:
NARRATOR: After the Muslims conquered Jerusalem, and Cordoba, and Constantinople, they built victory mosques. And, now, they want to build a mosque by ground zero. Where does Bob Etheridge stand? He won't say. Won't speak out. Won't take a stand.
ELLMERS: The terrorists haven't won. And we should tell them in plain English, 'No, there will never be a mosque at ground zero.'
But what is even more illuminating of the current moment than the ad itself is Etheridge's response. Via Jeremy Jacobs at the Hotline:
Update, 10:50 a.m.: A spokesman for Etheridge says the congressman has never supported building the mosque near Ground Zero.
