A comic-book style video created by The Lincoln Project warns that the paramilitary assault in Portland is ‘how freedom dies.”

“This is how it starts,” focuses on the secret police (“Trump’s thugs”) who are terrorizing Portland’s citizens exercising their 1st Amendment rights. It warns viewers that “shadowy men” are shoving people into unmarked vans, and “faceless enforcers say you don’t have the right to protest.”

This ad also encourages viewers to vote on November 3rd. It warns that if we don’t get Trump out of office, “we know how it ends.”
