I thought it important to share this with all of you--and by the way, several Eastern NC conservative candidates experienced theft and vandilism of signs during the 2010 campaign. Posting of this letter is in no way an endorsement by CCTA of the Randall campaign. Mr. Randall is a fine man and a true patriot and deserves better. We are seeing this same liberal tactic being used against Presidential candidate, Herman Cain. For the liberal "Saul Alinsky followers"-- the truth does not matter, a lie will do anytime. The damage is still done.
November 13, 2011
Good day to you. This is Bill Randall.
As you may know, I am running for Congress once again in the NC-13th Congressional district. Thanks to NC Tea Party support, I was able to win the Republican nomination in 2010, although I ultimately lost to (then) 4-term incumbent liberal Democrat Ralph "Brad" Miller in the General Election (Nov 2010). Although I am one of three Republicans seeking the GOP nomination, to the best of my knowledge, I am the only active Tea Party supporter running for the 2012 Republican nomination in the NC-13th. I have been actively and continually involved in North Carolina Tea Party events and initiatives since its inception in 2009. Here's a clip of my speaking at the 2010 Tea Party Rally in Raleigh, NC: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NRA4Ag05BGY
Without a doubt, the Tea Party movement, which has spontaneously sprung up across our great nation, is under assault by Liberals, Socialists, and even "Establishment RINOs" because it (the Tea Party) poses a threat to their agenda. Their most deceptive, insidious (and yet EFFECTIVE) strategy has been to marginalize and FALSELY label the Tea Party as "bigoted" and "racist." This is the furthest thing from the truth (...and they know it). But the TRUTH has never stopped them from spreading lies and falsehoods ---as long as they can use it to sway the masses (and keep them asleep).
If they are able to convince a significant number of the American public that the Tea Party are a bunch of bigoted racists who want to keep blacks and Hispanics under their thumb... then they will minimize the effectiveness of the Tea Party.
********THIS IS THE REASON FOR MY SENDING YOU THIS E-MAIL********
If you recall the Duke Lacrosse case, in which the Duke Lacrosse team members were FALSELY accused of raping a black stripper, the media covered the event for MANY DAYS, even though there was no evidence to substantiate the charges. Moreover, Al Sharpton, the NAACP, the New Black Panther Party and many other "race baiters" were threatening action and stirring up discontent as the days went by. District Attorney Mike Nifong fanned the flames by telling the media that he would prosecute the accused to the fullest extent of the law.
Here's a video clip to refresh your memory: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ihAY2Ti2O2Y
So what was the result?
The Duke Lacrosse players were not only found "not guilty," but the investigation found them INNOCENT! That indicated that the lacrosse players DID NOT do anything they were accused of.
Fast-forward to October 2011.
My campaign billboard was vandalized in early Oct 2011 with a vulgar phallic symbol and the letters "KKK." The Liberal Left would have characterized this as a "Hate Crime" had I been a Black Democrat. But because I'm a Tea Party Conservative Republican, the media has largely IGNORED this incident. Here are the details:
Vandalism of the campaign billboard occurred in early Oct 2011, on Burlington Mills Rd. in Wake Forest, NC.
The vandalism of my campaign sign was reported to the Wake County Sheriff's department, and was investigated with no credible leads. Investigation case # with the Sheriff's dept: 108811 - 8/9 Oct 2011.
Despite my conducting a press conference and issuing a press release on 10-10-2011, very few news organizations chose to report or cover the story. Only a local Fox 50, NBC-17, and the Wake Weekly (Wake Forest, NC newspaper) covered the story. Here is the NBC-17 clip (via Breitbart.com): http://www.breitbart.tv/black-tea-party-candidates-sign-defaced-with-kkk/
As I alluded earlier, the story barely made a ripple in the news cycle, and the local newspaper (Raleigh News & Observer) chose to NOT report the story at all. And even though Andrew Breitbart linked to the story, I am of the opinion that the story was largely suppressed. Interestingly, the location of the vandalism of the campaign billboard occurred less than 50 miles east of where the Duke lacrosse (rape) scandal occurred. As you no doubt recall, a far greater amount of outrage was noted in that case (with no evidence to support the allegations) than has occurred in THIS instance, where evidence is clear and unmistakable.
For this reason, my campaign chose to create a parody video (below) to call attention to the apparent media bias in this instance. Here is the video: http://youtu.be/cKP4QA0ZudA
I served honorably in the U.S. military for 27 years, and am willing to serve our nation once again in the U.S. Congress. I am not asking for favoritism, but I do ask for fair and equitable coverage of a horrible, disgraceful action that not only insulted me, but also the more than 92,000 constituents who cast their vote for me last Fall in the NC-13th Congressional District. This is an opportunity for the Tea Party to put a spotlight on this incident and expose the hypocrisy of the Liberal Left (and lamestream media).
WHAT CAN YOUR ORGANIZATION DO?
I have petitioned many of the major media contacts... to no avail. I believe that most major news outlets are owned by Liberal money people.
Therefore, I ask that you copy and paste this message ...and FORWARD it to any and all agencies that may allow the story to gain traction. It will certainly do much to destroy the notion that the Tea Party is a bigoted, racist movement.
But then again, we're no different than the "Occupy Wall Street" crowd, eh???
Thank you for your attention to this matter.
William "Bill" Randall
Candidate for U.S. Congress
NC-13th Congressional District
Wake Forest, NC
