[Stan emailed the following piece to me. I am posting it with his permission (encouragement actually) in response to the recent comment thread on my 18jul10 'Who is a Racist?' post.]
As you may not know, I do not go to the blogs. The reason is these people who sit at home and bitch, complain, call names, and offer nothing positive to any discussion, are of no interest to me. I have offered to met with any of them, in the light of day, but they have no interest. Jeff PellStine and Steve Enos are just two of the many that I have tried to meet. Why won't they meet? What are they afraid of? Are they scared of the truth? They should meet and show me the facts they have to prove their points.
As the President of the Nevada County Tea Party Patriots I am willing to meet with anybody from any group. All they have to do is email me and we'll set it up. I have met with the heads of the Democrats, Libertarians, Republicans, a member of Move On, and many others. Why won't the liberal bloggers meet?
We now have almost 2,000 members in Nevada County. We have over 18 million members nationally. We have over 2,500 chapters of Tea Party Patriots around the country and are adding 50 chapters a week. We are the largest grassroots organization in the history of the USA. If you want to see the survey results from Gallup, Rasmussen, ABC, CBS and the Wall Street Journal, I'll bring them with me. The latest polls show that Liberals make up just 20% of the voters in this country. Moderates are moving to the right at a rapid rate. What facts can you bring to the table?
Let's talk about Mandy Morello. Mandy Morello is not a founder of the Tea Party Patriots. I have been there since the beginning on April 27, 2009 and she wasn't there. I was! She was at an event on April 15th, 2009 as a photographer. I know Mandy and I like her. But, if she says she was one of the founding members, it just ain't so no matter what her blog says.
Am I biased in favor of my son, Mark Meckler? You bet I am! But, anyone that actually knows us, not the lies that are told, will tell you that we are honorable people. Meet us and find out for yourselves. Do you have the courage to do so? Or, are you going to sit in the dark and continue to type hatred?
