A new ad being run by The Lincoln Project on the second anniversary of the January 6 protest at the U.S. Capitol was produced by Publitics, a New Jersey-based consulting firm run by Henry de Koninck and Matt Krayton.
The 30-second ad, “Violence” features footage of the events of January 6 with the voice of Robert F. Kennedy and his speech on the day after the assassination of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King in April, 1968.
Script: “What has violence ever accomplished, what has it ever created? Too often we honor swagger and bluster and the wielders of force. Some look for scapegoats, others look for conspiracies. And an uncontrolled or uncontrollable mob is only the voice of madness, not the voice of the people.”
Krayton and de Koninck have collectively worked for Joe Biden’s 2020 presidential campaign, Sean Spiller’s bid for mayor of Montclair and his 501(c)(4) non-profit, and independent expenditure groups that boosted the re-election of Gov. Phil Murphy in 2021.
