The Lincoln Project: New Ad Says To Fight Back Against MAGA Bullies

April 18, 2023
In a new ad, The Lincoln Project tells viewers that Donald Trump, Ron DeSantis, and Tucker Carlson are authoritarian bullies intimidating people in order to seize power for themselves. Like the bullies of childhood, the only way to stop these anti-democracy miscreants is to fight back.

Watch the ad here. It will run digitally geofenced in Mar-A-Lago, the Florida Capitol, the Tennessee General Assembly, and national media bureaus in Washington, DC.

“The first step in halting authoritarianism is standing up and challenging those abusing power,” said Rick Wilson, Lincoln Project co-founder. “DeSantis, Trump, and Carlson didn’t get enough love as children and are now overcompensating for their weakness by trying to wreck democracy. Real patriots know that America was forged out of stopping bullies and fighting wanna-be despots like these three. The 2024 election will decide if America is to remain true to its democratic ideals or slide into totalitarianism. No one can remain silent any longer. Everyone afraid and intimidated must stand up and come together to say they will not let democracy die.“

The Lincoln Project is a leading pro-democracy organization in the United States — dedicated to the preservation, protection, and defense of democracy.
