Republican Army pilot vet’s “gung-ho” political ad censored by social media

An Apache-flying, Hellfire-shooting, deal-making conservative from Michigan is throwing his hat in the political ring.

John James knows how to leave an impact- from getting his Ranger tab and unleashing a burst of 30mm chain gun fire into enemy positions to helping out at church and running a family business, he’s no stranger to meeting challenges head-on and coming out on top.

While some, such as the founder of Duffel Blog,  found the ad to be a pretty hilarious campaign video, Twitter has decided to censor the ad.

“Hunting terrorists in the skies above Baghdad, there are two things you need,” he said. “Faith in God and a Hellfire missile.”

A West Point graduate who commissioned in 2004, James said he chose to fly the AH-64 Apache because he “wanted to take the fight to the enemy.”

During his time in Army Aviation, he logged over 753 flight hours in theater during Operation Iraqi Freedom, earning the Combat Action Badge (CAB) and two Air Medals.

After eight years of service, then-Captain James hung up his helmet and put on a tie, taking over the family business back home in Michigan.

A resident of Farmington Hills, James claim a seat in the US Senate, despite claiming an aversion to the political scene.

“I hate politics,” he said. “But I love this country.”

A Conservative outsider, James is seeking to replace Democratic Senator Debbie Stabenow, who was first elected in 2000 and holds the distinction of being Michigan’s first female US Senator.

James’ primary platform concentrations will involve tax reform, preserving Michigan jobs and protecting Constitutional rights.
