(Below I will make a few observations of this media report that in a number of ways distorted the intent and message of our meeting on Monday. These observations will be made in italics. -Robert Ransdell)
UNION, Ky. - A library in Northern Kentucky housed a controversial meeting Monday night that sparked debate over First Amendment rights. (This controversy was started by one lady and her daughter who did not agree with the flyer, if you call that cause for controversy,so be it.)
While a white supremacist group held an anti-immigration meeting inside, demonstrators exercised their own free speech rights outside. (The National Alliance stands for racial separation so all races can have self-determination for their people and for an end to the conflict that results from different races and cultures being forced to mix. As I asked the reporter,how can White people reign supreme over a group of non-Whites if we are separated?)
The controversy erupted when Florence and Boone County residents started to see flyers publicizing the meeting on their cars over the last week.
The flyer read in part that it wanted to rid the region of immigrants and "the rabble from the inner city of Cincinnati who have flocked to Florence." To view the flyer click here (http://media2.wcpo.com/pdfs/letter.pdf) . (The flyer makes mention of crime and other problems the third world immigrants have brought to the area,does it mention anything about "ridding the region" of immigrants? Read the flyer for yourself.)
Residents upset over the tone and message decided to mount an impromptu demonstration. A half dozen protesters held signs at the Scheben branch of the Boone County Public Library calling for understanding and peace between the races.
"When I found out about the flyer, it really worried me. I think this man really is dangerous and that his message is really dangerous," said protester Deanna White from Florence.(This was really incredible but at the same time typical. The message of the flyer only brought up real incidents and real changes that have accompanied the third-world immigrants. This woman seems to think that identifying these events and changes is dangerous. I can assure this woman that I am not a dangerous person and my message, the message of the National Alliance, as well as like-minded people across the world is one that asserts that we have the right to be concerned about the welfare and future of our people just as non-Whites do for their people.)
The man she is referring to is Robert Ransdell, Cincinnati leader of the National Alliance, a white supremacy group. Ransdell wrote the flyer and called the meeting.
The library stated that it could not legally deny him permission to use a conference room.
"The library is there for everyone in the community to use. We can't really discriminate. It would be inappropriate for us," said Boone County Library Director Greta Southard.
9 News was allowed inside the meeting before its official start. There was a handful of supporters in the room with Ransdell.
"The essential second class citizenship that we have and I think everyone in this establishment knows. The anti-white establishment: the government, the media and their camp followers, they know that the only thing standing between a real revolt and a stand against multi-culturalism and diversity is white people no longer fearing the smears. No longer being worried about being called names," said Ransdell.
Outside that meeting, protesters had a very different message.
"I think that his message is one of hate and intolerance. I think he is bullying immigrants. I'm trying to teach my son the message of tolerance and reaching out with love to people and I want adults to do that, too, in this community," said White.(She thinks that I am "bullying" immigrants,that I am hateful and intolerant. What would she call the numerous non-White newcomers to this area who have engaged in criminal acts against White people here, some of them violent. Those African immigrants certainly bullied that 53-year-old man as they robbed and beat him,in my opinion. Something tells me she would call them "disadvantaged youth", that is what the TV tells her to call them right? In all seriousness though, may fate treat her son well, I fear that if he was ever in a situation where the "diversity is our strength" and "we are all immigrants" brainwashing might make him easy prey for the multitudes of non-White criminals that walk our streets in this country he might become another statistic. The brainwashing our kids are receiving from the schools and in some cases their parents as well is the only thing that I would call "dangerous" in this whole matter.)
Demonstrators added that it was important to show the public that residents will speak up for diversity and tolerance.
During the meeting there were at least two Boone County Sheriff deputies present, but no confrontations occurred between the groups.(Yes it was completely uncalled for and improper for police to be present for a meeting where people were only gathering to share thoughts and opinions. Are police present at a normal NAACP function where they gather to talk about issues that are relevant to their people?)
(To conclude, even though I was not happy that the media chose to put a spotlight on this meeting as I think the turnout would have been even better had people not figured cameras would be present,I have to say that in the end I think it turned out playing out pretty well. Check out the story that started off the newscast, the one that proceeded their coverage of the meeting.)
(They interviewed the woman, a White woman, on the newscast. I thought that this example of the kind of thing that is commonplace in the majority Negro Clifton area was an excellent illustration of how the meeting was talking about real and relevant events and issues that are part of America's decline due to following the policies and principles of diversity and multiculturalism.)
