Lars Larson Tells Fox: 'Perfectly Fair' To Use Foley Beheading Video In GOP Campaign Ads

Conservative radio host Lars Larson told Fox News on Tuesday that it was “perfectly fair” for Republican candidates to use images from a video of an American journalist being beheaded in campaign ads attacking President Barack Obama.

A campaign video advertisement released on Monday by New Mexican Republican Senate candidate Allen Weh includes a frame from a gruesome video which showed the beheading of American photographer James Foley. The ad crops out Foley so only the disturbing image of the masked killer holding a knife is visible.

The ad goes on to slam President Barack Obama for playing golf, and tries to link Weh’s opponent, Democratic Sen. Tom Udall, to the administration’s foreign policy.

Former Obama campaign consultant Marjorie Clifton pointed out to Fox News on Tuesday that the ad “creates a really distasteful environment in terms of negative campaigning.”

Larson, however, called the ad “perfectly fair.”

"James Foley’s executioner, the image is very powerful," he insisted. "It reminds us of something important. A lot of Democrats don’t want to be tied to this president’s policies — although they are — because this president is playing while ISIS is out killing people."

Miles Davis covered in blood after an altercation with police.

"Altercation" sounds so polite, like it was a mutual thing and not one man getting assaulted by the police. Miles got beat up by the police.
The cops assaulted Miles because he was black. He was standing outside Birdland where he just performed and was taking a break. His name was on the marquee. They saw him escort a white female friend from the club into a taxi and then they approached him after as he was taking a smoke break. The cops told him to “move on”. Miles said he was playing at the club and was on break. They weren’t hearing any of that. One cop then punched him in the stomach, while another one cracked him on the head with a nightstick. That’s why he’s covered in blood. He was a victim of police brutality.
