Michael Bennet removes racist Aunt Jemima footage from campaign ad following backlash

Colorado Senator Michael Bennet’s latest ad went up on television last week and the original version included footage of racist Aunt Jemima products.

In a Friday afternoon news dump, Bennet announced the ad on Twitter and magically removed Aunt Jemima from the ad following our reporting at Campfire Colorado on this OUTRAGE.

Will Colorado’s liberal activist press sum up the courage to ask Senator Bennet why he removed this racist footage of Aunt Jemima?

We won’t hold our breath, but we do know that Joe Biden would be holding an Oval Office address on extremism if the tables were turned and this were a Republican’s campaign ad.
