Kasich shamelessly repeats liberal slander in new anti-Trump ad

The Kasich campaign fell to new lows when it began broadcasting an anti-Trump ad that repeats all the liberal media lies about him.  Kasich's ad features a veteran:

"You might not care if Donald Trump says Muslims should register with their government, because you're not one," says Moe, to an ominous soundtrack. "And you might not care if Donald Trump says he's going to round up all the Hispanic immigrants, because you're not one. And you might not care if Donald Trump says it's okay to rough up black protesters, because you're not one. And you might not care if Donald Trump wants to suppress journalists, because you're not one. But think about this: If he keeps going, and he actually becomes president, he might just get around to you. And you better hope there's someone left to help you."

Where to begin?

1) Trump didn't call for a "Muslim registry."  He called for refugees from suspect countries to be registered – as they already are.  But the liberal media has repeated this lie over and over to show that Trump is a bigot, and now John Kasich has done the same.

2) Trump never said he wanted to round up all the Hispanic "immigrants."  He wants to round up all the illegal aliens.  Kasich doesn't seem to make any distinction between illegal aliens and legal immigrants, which explains why he has been silent on the issue of border security.

3) Donald Trump never called for anyone to beat up black protesters.  But he did call for a disruptive protester, who happened to be black, to be expelled from one of his rallies.  He didn't call for surrendering to racist radicals.  Look at this contrast:

At a press conference on Tuesday, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump criticized Democratic candidate and Vermont Senator Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT)16%  for having one of his rallies taken over by Black Lives Matter protesters, stating it "showed such weakness" and "I would never give up my microphone."

Trump said, "I would never give up my microphone. I thought that was disgusting. That showed such weakness, the way he was taken away by two young women. The microphone, they just took the whole place over. And the audience, which liked him, I mean, they were him. They're saying, 'What's going on? How can this happen?' That will never happen with me. I don't know if i'll do the fighting myself, or if other people will, but that was a disgrace. The way they — I felt badly for him, but it showed that he's weak."

4) Donald Trump has never called to suppress any journalists.  But journalists have been out to get him since day one, trying to suppress him, constantly calling him a racist and a bigot, and urging him to quit even while he is ahead in the polls.

5) I don't worry that Donald Trump will "get around to me."  I didn't enter the country illegally.  I'm not part of a high-suspect group, and if I were, I would applaud additional screening, because it would help keep me safe.  I expect, since I am a law-abiding legal citizen, that Donald Trump will protect me, as Obama hasn't done and Kasich would never do.

There are many, many legitimate reasons to go after Donald Trump, most notably because he spent 98% of his adult life as a liberal who supported amnesty, abortion, and liberal Democrats.  But this line of attack Kasich is using is identical to the methods the media use to paint all conservatives as bigots and racists.

Kasich's ad only fuels my suspicions that if Trump is the nominee, Kasich and others will sit out the election, or even worse, secretly fund Hillary's campaign.  Because from his rhetoric, Kasich, a big spender who has embraced Obamacare, sounds a lot closer to Hillary Clinton than Donald Trump.
