Star Trek Spiral Alien Political Ad (Proposed)

The episode “Day of the Dove” from the Star Trek original series has an alien that’s shaped like a buzz saw blade made of light, and when people get angry and violent, the alien begins to glow red. (It feeds off of anger, and it glows red when everyone is really mad at each other, for those who have seen that episode and remember it.)

In this political ad featuring the alien from the Star Trek episode “Day of the Dove” we see political pundits yelling at each other and smearing each other with hate speech, like they do so often, and the alien is glowing bright red and growing in size, feeding off the anger, resentment and hatred. And the announcer says: “Stop all the hate in American politics. We can disagree without being disagreeable, so why don’t we try doing so?”
