New Lincoln Project Ad: MAGA Is America’s Taliban


November 2, 2022 — In a new ad today, The Lincoln Project tells Wisconsin voters how the MAGA movement is the American version of the Taliban. Like the Taliban, MAGA embraces violence and threats to attain power. They aren’t interested in governing, only implementing their culture war to roll back individual rights, crush dissent, eliminate fair elections, and destroy our democratic institutions.

You can watch the ad here. The ad will run digitally in southwest Wisconsin, including Eau Claire and La Crosse. It will reach higher income, higher educated, undecided voters who potentially lean Democratic due to GOP extremism.

“This year’s election is not a policy debate about what will happen in the margins; it’s about preventing a fundamental reordering of America that is less democratic, less tolerant, and more violent,” said Reed Galen, co-founder of the Lincoln Project. “This election plays a critical role in determining if 2024 will be fair and free of interventions by right-wing conspiracy nuts. The MAGA GOP is telling you what they will do if they take power. There is no compromise with them if they win. The only answer to their authoritarian ambitions is to defeat them this election.”

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