Absolutely Disgusting Racist Robocall Goes Out In Florida Against Andrew Gillum (AUDIO)

A white supremacist group from Idaho is responsible for this disgusting robocall. And this is not the first time that they’ve done this to Gillum.

On Tuesday the Huffington Post reported that a neo-Nazi website in Idaho is going after Florida Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum using a disgusting racist robocall to Florida voters.

“Voters in Florida received the robocall on Tuesday, and HuffPost obtained audio of the recording. Speaking in an exaggerated minstrel dialect, an actor pretends to be Gillum, saying: “Well hello there. I is the Negro Andrew Gillum, and I be asking you to make me governor of this here state of Florida.””

In the call music is playing in the background with an occasional monkey screeching to refer to Gillum.

The ad says that Gillum’s healthcare plan would be very cheap because he’ll just give people chicken feet instead of medicine. And it talks about Jewish people voting for Gillum because Jews are “the ones that been putting Negroes in charge over the white folk, just like they done after the Civil War.”

A disclaimer at the end of the robocall says that it was paid for by The Road to Power. The Road to Power is a white supremacist website based in Idaho. And this is not the first time that they’ve targeted Andrew Gillum. In August, during the primaries, this group sent out a similar disgusting robocall. The group has also been linked to other racist robocalls in Virginia, Oregon, California, Idaho, Iowa and Pennsylvania.

“The Anti-Defamation League notes that Scott Rhodes, the man behind Road to Power, is a white supremacist who “achieved local notoriety in late 2017 when police linked him to the distribution of white supremacist propaganda at Sandpoint (Idaho) High School, harassment of a Sandpoint resident, and threatening, anti-Semitic calls that included recordings of Hitler.””

Spokesman for Gillum, Geoff Burgan said on Tuesday,

“These disgusting, abhorrent robocalls represent a continuation of the ugliest, most divisive campaign in Florida’s history. We would hope that these calls, and the dangerous people who are behind them, are not given any more attention than they already have been.”

Gillum’s opponent, Republican Congressman Ron DeSantis also got into some trouble after the primaries when he told Florida voters not to “monkey up” the state by electing Gillum, who would be the first black governor of the sunshine state.

DeSantis spokesman Stephen Lawson said on Tuesday,

“Our campaign has absolutely nothing to do with this robocall and joins those in condemning it. In fact, we would encourage the Gillum campaign to join us in rooting out and exposing once and for all those who are behind this disgusting call.”
