Meet Leah Vukmir, a Republican Senate candidate from Wisconsin who wants to bring her conservative know-how to Washington. She would like you to vote for her, and she would like to ask you to vote for her while sitting at a table with a gun placed at her side. Extremely casual.

Vukmir explains in the ad that she received death threats over her policy positions: busting up unions and defunding Planned Parenthood, among others. She will also fight for these things in Washington, she says. Also, a gun.

There are three important visuals in this ad: the gun, the kitchen table, and the simple gold cross around her neck.

The kitchen table and the plain gold cross (nothing ostentatious!) are like the visual form of those German words that have whole paragraphs of meaning - they are dog whistles that encapsulate all of religious conservatism.

The gun is simply a threat.
