You evdently appose that ad and that, in its self, is political.

Anyway, I agree that this site is no place for politics of any form.

I don't see the same ads as you. (That is when I choose not to block them.) While I am not sure I suspect this has something to do with the way Google ads serves ads based on IP addresses and the like. It may also be that political adverts are protected speech under U.S. law - just speculating, but I know that being on the do not call list (home phone) that I cannot block political messages, perhaps something similar applies to Google..

Don't think that's the point.

Click on it as often as you can! They are probably paying something per click!

Wonderful advice: you see a fresh dog turd on the street. You think it probably won't stink so you step on it several times.

How does that sound ?
