A radical group funded by leftist billionaire George Soros has smeared a black Republican gubernatorial candidate as an “Uncle Tom.”
The “Uncle Tom” slur is historically used to describe a black man considered to be excessively obedient or servile to white people.
However, it is now often used by the Left to smear black people who oppose the Democrats.
Black Voters Matter Action PAC, a far-left organization funded by Soros, has launched a campaign to attack Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron.
Cameron is currently running as Kentucky’s Republican gubernatorial candidate.
He received an endorsement for his campaign from President Donald Trump.
“I’m the only candidate endorsed by President Trump and the only candidate who stood up to Joe Biden,” Cameron says in his latest TV ad for his campaign in the governor’s race.
“I fought the Biden agenda in court to defend Kentucky,” Cameron adds.
“Andy Beshear, he never will.
“As governor, I’ll put Kentucky first even when it’s hard.”
In response to Cameron’s campaign, Black Voters Matter Action PAC has been running a radio ad on a local R&B station based in Jeffersontown, Kentucky.
The ad describes Cameron as “Uncle Daniel Cameron” because he campaigns for all races, not just black people.
It accuses Cameron of betraying his race, declaring that “all skinfolk ain’t kinfolk.”
FEC filings show that the organization has received millions from Soros’ super PAC.
“What’s up Kentucky? It’s election time, and all skinfolk ain’t kinfolk,” the ad says.
“Over the past few years, we’ve taken to the streets to demand racial justice, to demand healthcare, and the right to make decisions about our body.
“And now, Uncle Daniel Cameron is threatening to take us backward, the same man who refused to seek justice for Breonna Taylor now wants to run our whole state.”
“We can’t let that happen,” it adds, declaring support for incumbent Democrat Gov. Andy Beshear, who is white.
“We won’t let that happen.
“On November 7th vote Andy Beshear for governor.”
Cameron hit back at the group and accused Democrats, along with other left-wing organizations, of using “racist attacks” solely because he doesn’t support their policies.
He also called on Beshear to condemn the ad.
“I believe here in Kentucky you shouldn’t be judged by the color of your skin, but by the content of your character,” he said in a statement.
“The same cannot be said of Joe Biden, out-of-state, radical left interest groups, and the national Democrat Party, who think you can’t be black and conservative.”
“I never faced racism or discrimination while growing up or working in Kentucky until I decided to stand up to the national Democrat establishment” he added, referencing a cartoon published in a liberal paper earlier this year characterizing him in a racist manner.
“I don’t support their policies, so the Left attacks me for my skin color.
“These racist attacks have been happening for years and the media has either enabled or ignored them.”
When asked about Cameron’s call to condemn the ad, Beshear’s campaign argued that the ad came from “an African American-led PAC, so we’ll let them comment for themselves.”
However, the group is funded by George Soros, who was born in Hungary and isn’t African-American.
In a Saturday YouTube video, Black Star Network’s Roland Martin spoke with Cliff Albright, co-founder of Black Voters Matter Action PAC, who defended the ad and doubled down on the racialized attacks against Cameron.
“You don’t want to talk about the substance of the ad, he wanted to talk about the Uncle Daniel Cameron,” Albright said while discussing Cameron’s criticism.
“And technically, we didn’t call him Uncle Tom, right?
“To do so actually would probably be more of an insult to the actual Uncle Tom.”
He went on to blast Cameron for allegedly being “against” the black community, citing his decision not to charge the officers involved in the 2020 Breonna Taylor shooting and his approach to healthcare and affirmative action.
“It’s issue, after issue, after issue where he has shown himself to be just as much of a threat to the black community as the staunches [sic] white supremacists,” he added.
“You don’t have to be white to pursue and reinforce white supremacist policies.
“As we said in the ad, all skinfolk ain’t kinfolk.”
Cameron’s campaign has condemned the Soros-funded ads as “disgusting.”
“Daniel Cameron holds the views of a traditional, conservative Republican.
“It’s disgusting that someone would liken mainstream Republican views to white supremacy,” Cameron campaign surrogate and Republican Party of Kentucky spokesman Sean Southard said.
“But this is where the modern Democrat Party has taken us: Kentucky’s first-ever black gubernatorial nominee is being called a white supremacist because he is a Republican.
“That sort of irresponsible language is an insult to every conservative-thinking person in the state,” he added.
The election between Cameron and Beshear will be held on Tuesday, November 7.
