A ridiculous new ad from the Latino Victory Project portrays Virginia gubernatorial candidate Ed Gillespie as a Confederate flag-toting racist trying to run down minority children.

The ad opens with a minority child running from a man (presumably Gillespie or a Gillespie supporter) in a pickup truck. The kid warns his friends, a girl wearing a hijab and a black boy, as the truck closes in.

The group runs from the truck, which has a Gadsen flag plate on its front and a “Gillespie for Governor” bumper sticker on its back.

As the unseen person behind the wheel prepares to run the kids over, the children wake up from the nightmare, comforted by their parents.

At the end of the ad, the kids’ parents are watching a television with images of a neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. “Is this what Donald Trump and Ed Gillespie mean by the American dream?” a narrator asks.

This is not the first time that Democrats have attempted to connect Gillespie to white supremacists and neo-Nazis. Last week, Virginia Democrats distributed flyers that super-imposed the gubernatorial candidate with President Trump over the Charlottesville rally.

Gillespie has been outspoken in his rejection of the events that took place in Charlottesville this summer.

UPDATE: The ad has been taken down.
