No, No, Negative

The House of Representatives special election has been pretty ugly all along, but this is a new low.
“The unhinged left is endorsing and applauding shooting Republicans,” a text overlay says. “When will it stop? It won’t if Jon Ossoff wins on Tuesday.”
There are reasons to vote against Ossoff; there may even be a reason to vote for his opponent, though I'm not aware of it since all I've seen from her side are attack ads against him. But he is not responsible for anyone else's murders.

The PAC does go too far, but Ossof is responsible for his silence on his party's years-long divisiveness and incitements to riot and murder.

Ossof also is responsible for his own hypocrisy: "The man is fighting for his life," Ossoff said Sunday after a campaign stop. "I think it's disgraceful to politicize it, and I think Secretary Handel should call for it to come down." Here he is, disgracefully politicizing the mass murder attempt by trying to tie his opponent to the ad.

Perhaps there's a grain of truth to it in that this has been made a bellweather for the entire red v blue dynamic, and so a victory for him will invigorate the far left that is so invested in this (quite literally). Not that that makes this a good idea, but there is some there, there.
