Noem dials back rhetoric on refugees (just barely)

Over the last few days, Kristi Noem has been sponsoring some Trump inspired  fear and anger campaign ads to goat people into signing up for her campaign’s mailing list.  The first up from two days ago:

In it, I see the Northeastern United States, a passenger jet pointed downward, and a masked Middle Eastern fighter.  It’s clearly aimed at portraying refugees as terrorists and eliciting memories of Sept 11, 2001.

Today, there’s an updated ad:

Now we see the entire country, no more Middle Eastern fighter, and the airplane is no longer pointed to the ground.  Why the change?  Your guess is as good as mine.  Perhaps Noem realized that refugees are actually the victims of terrorism.
