narration, sound, visuals are dark and meant to scare and stir animus.

Even the voiceover sounds bored.

And man, that white Whitey McWhiteson little family at the end, being kept safe from the brown people.

Two strong female leads, a detective and the M.E. it's smart for a cable detective show without being macabre.

His cranky old white supremacist base... the one thing this ad does do is expose Trump's world view as a scary dark place where whites must fear everything and everyone. Only armed forces inside the US can protect white people from the dangers in their community. Only a strong and aggressive military can protect white America from the rest of the world.

This is a sick man with a twisted view of the US and our place in the world.
