Lincoln Project sets its sights on 'young enough' Senate candidate Blake Masters

“I know I’m a young candidate, but I didn’t think I was young enough to attract the Lincoln Project’s attention.”

Blake Masters is a new breed of conservative. One who’s unapologetically for the Constitution, who defends the Second Amendment for what it is: the right to bear arms – not the right to hunt wild game.

In a new advertisement for Masters’ run for the U.S. Senate in Arizona, Masters introduces the short barreled rifle.

“It wasn’t designed for hunting. This is designed t o kill people. But if you’re not a bad guy, I support your right to own one,” says Masters. “The Second Amendment is not about duck hunting. It’s about protecting your family and your country.”

“What’s the first thing the Taliban did when Bided handed them Afghanistan?” Masters asks. “They took away people’s guns. That’s how it works.”

The video, which has garnered over 200,000 views on Twitter, made Masters the target of the Democrat-aligned Lincoln Project group. The group, which recently came under fire for a failed hate hoax crime in which Democrat operatives posed as tiki torchbearers to defame Virginia gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin, attacked Masters directly for one of his previous ads in which he expressed his understanding that the 2020 presidential elections were “messed up.”

In the video, Masters explains that he, like tens of millions of other Americans, believes President Donald Trump won in 2020.

“Maybe you disagree,” he says in the campaign ad, “but you gotta admit this election was really messed up. We saw states change the rules at the last minute to flood the zone with mail in ballots. The media – they’d tell any lie in order to hurt President Trump. And Big Tech censored true information about Joe Biden in the weeks leading up to the election. How is that fair? Trump wins big in a fair fight.”

“.@BGMasters is full of sh*t,” the Lincoln Project wrote on Twitter, prompting Masters to respond:

“I know I’m a young candidate, but I didn’t think I was young enough to attract the Lincoln Project’s attention.”

The reference to his youth revolves around the Lincoln Project’s pedophilia scandal in which its co-founder John Weaver was accused by 21 young men of sexual harassment, including the solicitation of a 14-year-old boy.

As the New York Times reported, Weaver's alleged sexual solicitations included interacting with a 14-year-old boy, asking him questions about his body, then later sending more explicit messages when he turned 18. Screenshots of messages from Weaver show that the solicitations were sometimes aggressive in nature, according to the Times.

None of the alleged solicitations from Weaver resulted in a physical sexual encounter except in one consensual case. The accusers say they felt preyed upon by an older man in power who offered to help their careers if they engaged with him.

Weaver allegedly told one of the victims he would, "help you other times. Give advice, counsel, help with bills," if, "you help me … sensually."
