Right-wing Christian crank to challenge Keith Ellison

This is the ad that Gary Boisclair has announced he will broadcast as part of his planned challenge to US Muslim Congressman Keith Ellison in the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party primary in Minnesota. Boisclair’s prospects of defeating Ellison are zero, but he intends to use his campaign to force media outlets to air right-wing fundamentalist Christian propaganda. Abortion rights are Boisclair’s main target, but presumably he hopes to win a wider audience by wrapping his message in rabid Islamophobia.
