California Democrat Congressman Slammed for Fake Arrest Ad

  • Flyover Country, Home

In Brief: 

California Democrat Eric Swalwell is using outright lies and scare tactics to push voters toward Democratic candidates. However, his allegations against the Republican candidates closely mimic what the left is actually doing to conservatives. Swalwell has been under fire the last couple of years for his intimate, years-long relationship with a Chinese spy.

The Background: 

Swalwell released the ad showing police officers informing a woman — in front of her husband and two kids — that there is a warrant out for her arrest over an unlawful abortion. The situation quickly escalates and the cops draw their weapons on the family and handcuff the woman in front of her screaming children.

In a tweet accompanying the ad, Swalwell said,  “MAGA Republicans want women arrested for having an abortion. This is what that looks like.  #LockHerUp.” 

However, recent arrests over life issues have involved pro-life activists, not pro-abortion advocates. The irony was not lost when it was broadly pointed out that what Swalwell depicted in his ad — a peaceful home being raided at gun point — was exactly what has been happening to pro-life activists per the order of the FBI and President Biden’s administration. 

“The DOJ is literally running around the country right now arresting abortion protesters in front of their families,” Mark Hemingway Senior Writer at RealClearInvestigations tweeted. 

 “The only take away I get from this is Eric Swalwell has an incredibly insulting, despicable, hateful view of law enforcement. Eric Swalwell is a garbage human being,” stated conservative radio talk show host, Larry O’Connor.

Notable Quotes: 

“The FBI has arrested 22 pro-life Americans for peacefully protesting abortion, but still hasn’t arrested a single person for firebombing pregnancy centers and burning down churches.” – LifeNews.com via Twitter

“I don’t think there is a single Republican candidate running for national office that has suggested arresting women for having abortions. Oh well. Never let the truth get in the way of a good story!” – Ben Kew, editor at El American, a bilingual conservative media platform.
