Sen. John Kennedy has never been one to mince words, and he had some pointed – and pretty hilarious – ones for anti-cop leftists he blames for the massive rise in crime across his state of Louisiana.

In a campaign ad released this week, Kennedy, who’s running against challenger Gary Chambers for the he’s held since 2017, blasted “woke leaders” who support taking money from police departments.

“Look, if you hate cops just because they’re cops, the next time you get in trouble, call a crackhead,” Kennedy fired off at the end of the short video.

In response, Chambers called Kennedy “racist as hell” for singling out crack rather than meth, cocaine, or other drugs, accusing Kennedy of “trying to talk about a specific subset of people that he doesn’t give a damn about serving in Louisiana since he’s been elected.” 

Assuming, apparently, that all crack addicts are non-whites?

Sounds a little racist, to me.
