A far-left group funded by liberal billionaire George Soros is targeting Kentucky Attorney General and gubernatorial candidate Daniel Cameron, a black Republican, with an ad disparaging him as an Uncle Tom.
Black Voters Matter Action PAC, which FEC records show received millions from Soros’ super-PAC, aired the radio ad on a local R&B station based in Jeffersontown, Ky., describing Cameron as “Uncle Daniel Cameron.” and accusing him of treason. his race by stating “not all skinfolk are relatives”.
“What’s going on in Kentucky? It’s election time, and not all skinfolk are parents. Over the past several years, we’ve taken to the streets to demand racial justice, to demand health care and the right to make decisions about our bodies. And “Now Uncle Daniel Cameron is threatening to take us backwards, the same man who refused to seek justice for Breonna Taylor now wants to run our entire state,” the ad says.

“We can’t let this happen. We won’t let this happen. On November 7, vote Andy Beshear for governor,” it added, declaring support for incumbent Democratic Gov. Andy Beshear, who is white.
Cameron hit back at the group and accused Democrats, as well as other left-wing organizations, of resorting to “racist attacks” solely because he does not support their policies. He also called on Beshear to condemn the ad.
“I believe that here in Kentucky you should not be judged by the color of your skin, but by the content of your character. The same cannot be said of Joe Biden, radical left interest groups outside the state and the national party. Democratic Party, which thinks you can’t be black and conservative,” he said in a statement.

“I never faced racism or discrimination growing up or working in Kentucky until I decided to stand up to the national Democratic establishment. I do not support their policies, so the left is attacking me because of my skin color. These racist attacks have been happening for years and the media has enabled them or ignored them,” he added, referring to a caricature published in a liberal newspaper earlier this year, calling him racist.

“You don’t want to talk about the substance of the ad, he wanted to talk about Uncle Daniel Cameron. And technically we didn’t call him Uncle Tom, did we? To actually do that would probably be more of a insult to the real Uncle Tom,” Albright said when discussing Cameron’s criticism.
He then blasted Cameron for being “against” the Black community, citing his decision not to charge the police officers involved in the 2020 shooting of Breonna Taylor and his approach to health care and affirmative action.
“It’s been issue after issue after issue where he has shown himself to be just as threatening to the black community as fervent white supremacists. You don’t have to be white to pursue and reinforce white supremacist policies.” Like we said in the commercial, not all skinfolk are parents,” he added.

Asked about Albright’s defense of the ad, Cameron’s campaign told Fox News Digital that his comments were “disgusting.”
“Daniel Cameron is championing the views of a traditional conservative Republican. It’s disgusting that anyone would compare mainstream Republican views to white supremacy. But this is where the modern Democratic Party has taken us: the first-ever black candidate for “The governorship of Kentucky is being called a white supremacist because he’s a Republican,” said Sean Southard, Cameron’s campaign surrogate and a spokesman for the Kentucky Republican Party.
“This kind of irresponsible language is an insult to anyone of conservative thinking in the state,” he added.
The election between Cameron and Beshear will take place on Tuesday, November 7.
