Sethi on the air with new ad hitting ‘Leftwing Lockdown’

Republican U.S. Senate candidate Manny Sethi has a new TV ad out in which he goes after what his campaign is calling liberals’ double standard on the coronavirus lockdown.

Here’s the text of the ad:

Across America, opening a business is a crime. Burning a business is not? Dinner with neighbors gets you arrested. Beating neighbors does not? Church with too many people is a crime. Thousands of people protesting is not? Got a problem with any of that? You’re a racist! And you want to kill Grandma. Had enough? Me too. That’s why I’m running. Send me to the Senate. I’m Dr. Manny Sethi, and I approve this message.

        Labeling people is the left’s specialty. Remember we’re the deplorables! What Mr. Sethi has said is fact!! Forgiveness comes with repentance. I see no repentance but more of the same. Wake up. The people of America who helped build this country have!! You can’t be that nieve or maybe you’re just one of the elites who plans on having all the power?

          Dr. Manny’s entire foundation of his tv commercial is filled with name calling, even using liberal and left. But like usual, IOKIYR, it’s ok if you’re a Republican and hypocrite (but that’s redundant).

        These ads are just offensive and intellectually dishonest. The poisonous spew comes from a place of fear and loathing.
        If he believes this stuff then we don’t want him representing us
        If he doesn’t believe this stuff then he’s dishonest and we don’t want him.
        There is enough hatred and fake outrage in the political system today without this person foment more.

          He’s obviously stooping to the lowest common denominator to get support. He is fear mongering and saying we will be invaded if Democrats lead. He should be ashamed of himself. Unfortunately, in red Tennessee he might go far. All the candidates have to do is pretend to be religious, say they’ll protect second amendment rights, and build a wall. Yikes!

    Again, Chris Devaney is a pro. Just as the feckless, craven Republicans have decided to sit the destruction of this country’s major cities out where they feel most at home, deep in the tall grass, Chris Devaney has decided The Chairman will do the job that Republican officeholders refuse to do viz. act like a candidate of a real political party in the face of the pathetic failure of the Democrats to govern,

    How any conservative can contribute a dime to that shambolic excuse of a political party is beyond me. MILLIONS FOR CONSERVATIVE CANDIDATES! NOT A PENNY FOR THE REPUBLICAN PARTY!

      Far be it for me to defend The Chairman who I ardently want to be in the operating room at Vandy next January, but I think he is drawing the contrast between the fact that it’s acceptable to the control freaks when more than the approved numbers gather to riot/”protest” for a cause toward which they are sympathetic but not to practice religion, something regarding which they have no sympathy at all.

        Stuart, you are absolutely right, Marle is just taking a cheap shot at Republicans aka James White. I don’t really have a favorite in this race, but I will say that Manny is pushing the right buttons. He and his campaign managers are articulating what a lot of us are feeling. I am about ready to take some news apps off my phone(channel 5) who are telling every 5 minutes about the evils of so many of us southerners.

        MARLE says:

        When you juxtapose notions as he has done in each of his examples the SECOND one mentioned SHOULD be a crime. “burning a business is NOT”, he asks? “Beating you neighbor is not?”, he asks. Clearly these TWO should be, wouldn’t a Republican say???? Of course !

        So to be consistent his THIRD example ( protesting) should ALSO, to fit his narrative, be a crime as well.

        He has chosen a very poor paragraph construction IF what he meant was the opposite of that.

        I may not vote for him for that alone. OR I may vote for him, Stuart and Jame,s because you two don’t understand sentence structure and thought development and you oppose him so maybe that alone recommends him. I’ll decide which way

          I can see that this senate race has really captured your imagination. That’s what happens because we conservatives, who have known for a number of years that this was Alexander’s last term, have failed to come up with a candidate to take his place. I would be interested to know who you finally choose.

      Yup – he’s toast! Not enough money, no credibility for the self-proclaimed title of ‘true conservative, and not really very persuasive. I attended events for both Sethi and Hagerty this week. Several of my close friends were undecided and also attended both. Result: Hagerty wins!

      As usual, ya hear a snippet and run with it. Nobody wants to get rid of the police altogether but there’s no reason police forces need military grade vehicles and weapons when that money would be better used in our schools to pay our teachers.

    I found it disgusting that he would suggest that anyone republican or democratic aren’t outraged at a man beating up a woman. He’s comparing apples and oranges. I find this entire commercial beyond ridiculous and in my opinion he’s promoting abuse of women. If anyone wants to put their life at risk they can go out and do whatever they want, he wants to take away the rights of people that don’t want to risk getting covid-19 to stay at home. This entire commercial is beyond disgusting.

      He’s not promoting the abuse of women. He’s pointing out that the Democrats are promoting violence and civil unrest against anyone who disagrees with them. The COVID-19 scare is real and people have died. But we were also being held hostage and duped by MSM.

        Pat Betten says:

        You can only be duped if you don’t know the truth. Do your research. Pay attention and listen to what is really going on. No legitimate organization is promoting violence. The civil unrest are primarily peaceful protests to bring attention to a disturbing trend in our society, but as with most things involving human emotions not everyone follows the plan. Do you not see how this type of ad does nothing to change anything? COVID and racism IS real so as a Dr. how about coming together and discussing real honest change and solutions. What’s he going to do if he gets to congress? This man is awful.

    I love this guy! Sorry Democrats want to chastise Republican’s for upholding and enforcing the law of our land while Democrats encite anger and hatred and reward criminal and unruly behavior.
    I support BLM, but I also support the fact that ALL lives matter and are equal according to God’s word. Maybe Joe Biden should read it sometime and stop voting for gay rights (reference the story of Sodom and Gomorrah) and for the killing of innocent unborn children (reference the 10 Commandments).
    Before you liberals call me a hippocrite, everyone, including those who choose homosexuality, have the same fights as other men and women, to which the gender they were born with. We all are sinners and fall short of God’s glory. Thank God we have a President who is TRYING to restore morality back to this sinful country.
    I am tired of having the race card thrown around like a baseball. In my eyes, we are all RED, because that is the color of blood we all bleed. Stop all the non-sense and start treating everyone with love and respect.
    Vote Dr. Manny and Trump/Pence 2020

      Our country was founded on freedom of (and from) religion. Stop pushing yours in my government.

        C. Zie says:

        The constitution doesn’t say from religion it says,of religion. We can choose whatever religion we want to practice. There is nothing, nada, no w hete anything about separation of government and religion. It’s simply that government cannot mandate what religion must be honored. So,why are we being forced to honor what goes against our Christian beliefs namely abortion, lbgq.., homosexuality, and doing away with gender? Who’s forcing who on what? Think again.

          Nobody is forcing you, personally, to have an abortion. According to the bible, the Christian God gave humans a free will. How would Christian US citizens feel if our government adopted Islamic laws and made all women cover their entire bodies? How about some Hindi laws that forbids the consumption beef? How about some Jewish laws like not leaving your city on the Sabbath? When you begin to allow Christian beliefs to influence our laws, you must be willing to accept laws from other religions, as well. Christians lose nothing from the legalization of abortion but non-Christians lose free will. That’s why it’s called pro-choice. I know of no one who claims to be pro-abortion.

          Homosexuality is a term that was added to the Christian Bible. If you study the bible and understand the meaning and history of the scriptures Christians use to condemn LGBTQ+, you would learn that every instance that same sex relationships are condemned are those where one of the individuals involved are non-consenting participants. Same sex relationships between consenting adults is never condemned in the bible.

Its a story fantasized to be the moral of all man on earth…….by the Catholics of history who erased all other humanities thoughts and beliefs….what ever happened to “only God can judge me?” Why is everyone of Christianity,etc… and the likes, so quick to judge if thats your word to spread

      Try this humanity morale…..”TO EACH THEIR OWN”
      ONLY GOD CAN JUDGE ME, AND LOVE THY NEIGHBOR, get lost with that b.s.

      How is the man in the White House trying time restore morality back to this sinful country. First of all this country had always been sinful since the beginning of time. Second, we have the most sinful President in the White House. How many times he’s been married & don’t forget he was committing adultery the entire time. This is a man who said in his on words “When you have money, you can grab them by the “P” and get away with it. This is a man who tells more lies than the truth, this is a man who makes fun of people with disabilities and women’s , this is a man who is very disrespectful, if you speak against him or disagree with him .. you’re fired. This is a man who doesn’t listen to any the experts. This is a man who owns wife can’t stand him. This man doesn’t know the Bible. This is a man who says what he needs to say the republicans wants to hear. Stop judging a man by what he says- look at his character, that is how you define a true God fearing man. I can go on and on. Black Life Matters do not been that nothing else matters. It is simply about injustice. Like Being killed for jogging down a street while black, the White killer said self defense and the police chief said ok.; Daylan Root killed 8 blacks while in church, when he was arrested they put a bulletproof vest on him and got him a Burger King meal. How many unarmed black been killed at site by police. If I see a suspicious white boy jogging down my street and I kill him, I know I can’t, “self defense and go home. Again, BLACK LIFE MATTERS IS ABOUT INJUSTICE‼️ Stop trying to high jack it for anything else. You said, In your eyes we all of RED, well I here to inform you that we are not treated the same. Blacks get higher jail time sentences than whites for that same crime. Jail cages in American is just

      You are talking about the bible so you should know God gave us a our own mind and freewill. God allows us to make our own decisions, why don’t you. Trying to restore morality? Tell the man in the Whitehouse to treat people with respect. His constant name calling, blatant lies, childish, arrogant ignorance is destroying and killing us all. We all should be tired of the race card being thrown, help fix it.

      Yes. Agreed. You’d think he’d have more decorum since he has a professional career that depends on bedside manner and maintaining a good public image, but some folks stop at nothing to seek power.

  • In the movie ‘THE UNFORGOVEN’ Clint Eastwood said the lines, “Funny thing when you kill a man, you take away everything he has and everything he ever will have!” I feel the same way about abortion, “when you kill an unborn baby, you take away everything he has, and everything he ever will have!” An abortion is not only an act of murder it is also a heinous act of aggravated robbery with great brutal force against the victim. Those who commit these crimes may get away in the eyes of a crooked perverse liberal nation… But not guiltless in a million years when they stand before God Almighty.

    But it is a sad and perverse world which is being forced to live in by the sick liberal God hating left. This is a very foolish and criminal ideology.

  • BLM yes Babies Lives Matter!!!

  • I agree I’m tired of seeing everything tore apart by protesters they call it racism but I don’t see it 60 something years ago A black man was killed for whistling at a white woman Today a black man will choose a white woman over a black woman now wouldn’t the ancestors be proud. The signs should say ALL LIVES MATTER I agree with Manny Sethi he will be good in office and he will make a difference
