VIDEO: Black voters disgusted by Get Your Booty to the Poll campaign

An unemployed Los Angeles director released a PSA this week urging blacks to vote in the November election, but the Get Your Booty To the Poll campaign, featuring scantily clad women gyrating around a dance pole, seems to have backfired.

Angeles Davis, who also lives part-time in Atlanta, explained on Twitter that she enlisted “the finest pole dancers to encourage Black voters, specifically Black male southern voters to vote.”

“And yes. Those are ballots on the floor. We made it rain votes,” added Davis, who sprinkles her tweets with the #DumpTrump hashtag and @getyourbootytothepoll Twitter call.

The response from the black community, which viewed it as an attempt to boost Biden and down ballot Democratic candidates, was, to put it mildly, less than enthusiastic.

NSFW WARNING: Not Safe For Woke.

‘Democrats are messed up’

“Instead of talking about our tangibles, this is what the white Democrats think will appeal to us,” tweeted Tariq Nasheed, a Hollywood musician, producer and race activist, who encouraged African Americans to sit out the Nov. 3 election.

“Democrats are messed up,” replied Ali Alexander, a well-known conservative black political consultant and activist.

“They have zero respect for us. Do they appeal to the Mexicans by pulling burritos out of their purses, wearing Sombreros, or doing the Macarena?” asked @DGoddess27.

“Lol, let’s tackle women empowerment and black male vote in one video. This is so disrespectful to the black community. Shows what the Dems really think of us as voters,” opined @medbrotha, a medical doctor.

Hundreds of black men and women from all political and social perspectives denounced the ad, but a handful of the Twitterarti defended it, notably white progressives.

‘One of the best ads I’ve ever seen’

“I worked for 12 years in Dem politics and this is probably one of the BEST ADS I’ve ever seen. Right to target, right to message. I am a fan. Black men have too much at stake in local elections,” gushed Andrea Simonelli, PhD, a researcher on climate, displacement and government policy.

“You really need to STOP. This is a public service announcement put out by some good-intentioned black entertainment professionals to motivate the black community,” responded Lisa Lorraine Bowen, a San Diego life coach.

Some didn’t buy it.

“The whole production company that backed you is white funded. You’re a sick and twisted individual,” tweeted @JustThatGrll, citing Moonshine Post Productions, an Atlanta-based outfit that once hosted former Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams.

Few black people had anything good to say about it. But the official Twitter page for the Black Entertainment Network, a once independent operation now owned by ViacomCBS, tweeted this rave review: “LMAOO we love it !!!!”

Angela and her partner, producer Paul Fox, posted the video on YouTube and getyourbootytothepoll.com, where they solicit political donations in a more traditional manner.

This ad is disgusting and insulting! I thought Cardi B was a degradation to black women but this nasty ad with nasty women is the most vile demonic thing that I have ever seen. I demand the removal of this vulgar ad immediately!

Don’t overlook the fact that it’s JUST as degrading to black MEN! This is the Democrat idea of what black culture is.

Hey, Blacks! You wanna know why you’re thought of as you are? Well, it’s how you allow yourselves to be portrayed, mostly by your own Black selves! Consider this “campaign promotion” as one example. But don’t stop there — move quickly on to rap lyrics, public displays of senseless and unprovoked violence, and in general TNB (Typical N…… Behavior). If you want to change your image, you must come down hard on your own first. Once you clean up a little, you’ll be noticed. No brain surgery or rocket science here.

Go to highest building in your city and do everyone a favor. “Clean up a little, you’ll be noticed”. Sounds like “respectability politics”. It’s old hat. ADOS is where it is because of WS social engineering. Get an education first, then “you’ll be noticed”.

According to Dopey Joe “the Groper” Biden that: “if they don’t vote for me, they ain’t black!”
So, exactly who is surprised by this tone deaf outreach?

The ad starts with a big, flabby, cellulite-ridden nude butt.

Yech. That’s supposed to be sexy? Reminds me of that one idiot twerking madly has Hillary came onto the stage waving.

What is it with liberals and stinky looking rear ends? Even with kids they are butt-obsessed, as they enjoy shows such as “Cuties”.

On what planet is this tasteful or inspiring on any level? All those women look like shopworn prostitutes. This really appeals to some people, regardless of race?

Democrats are the REAL Racists! How much evidence do you have to be shown before you understand and get it? And what good does Tariq Nasheed think will come of African Americans sitting out the November election? Hey silly, you White dem frineds will vote for you when you do not show. Best to show up[ and vote Republican and show them you are for REAL!

SO STUPID AT EVERY LEVEL!
