“Silence is consent”

“Silence is consent”

Wow, just wow.

Republican Mark Reed is running for Congress in California’s 30th District against Democratic Congressmen Brad Sherman and Howard Berman in a new district resulting from redistricting.  Reed is a conservative, Tea Party backer.

Reed is making a big deal about the Obama administration’s policy towards Israel, and is making the silence of the two  Democratic Congressmen (Berman and Sherman) an issue:

Israel’s very existence is threatened and the current administration continues to treat it and its Prime Minister not as close allies but as insignificant. Now, Brad Sherman and Howard Berman, my two opponents in the upcoming primary for California’s 30th District Congressional seat, are both quietly distancing themselves from the very same person they helped elect — only to get themselves re-elected!

I’m not challenging their support for, or emotional connection to, Israel; however, I want you to take a serious look at their silence concerning the Middle East and the State of Israel, our only true friend in the region.

Reed has come out with a powerful video ad which is reminisent of LBJ’s Daisy commercial.  The ad and the point about silence is all the more powerful because Reed is running against two Jewish congressmen.

Like I said, Wow, just Wow.

i’ve met Mark Reed in person and heard him speak at public meetings here in The Valley.

he’s not a Republican, but only what passes for one here in the People’s Republic. after hearing him speak, i threw away his card and will not bother voting for him: more of the same in a slightly different package is NOT the change i’m looking for, and better we leave an out and out Dem in office than elect a RINO that gives the lieberals cover every time their boy breaks ranks with his alleged party.

that may be what it takes to get elected here on the Left Coast, but i’m not going to aid and abet my enemies.

YMMV.

The 30th was my district … now Santa Monica is in the newly drawn 33rd and Henry Waxman will no doubt continue to be my rep … lucky me.

This is powerful. I just hope the message goes viral – it is all too possible, if Iran gets nukes, as they hope and plan to do.

I don’t know about this person’s record, but WOW sums it up, indeed.

I took a look at Mark Reed’s website. It sure makes him out to be a conservative, at least on the issues I looked at which were 2nd Amendment, health care, and illegal immigration.

it’s a great web site, but, as i’ve said, i’ve heard the man speak and what came out of his mouth isn’t what’s on the page.

Awesome ad.

I’ve heard him speak many times over the last several years in the San Fernando Valley…he says what he means and he means what he says. Republicans are fortunate to have him as their candidate!

I lived for many years in Sherman’s district, mostly when it was repped by the last honest liberal (and maybe politician), Tony Beilenson. You could have video of Sherman and Berman laughing with Obama over Netanyahu and it won’t make a point’s worth of difference. One of the two will win.

Wow. And unlike the “Daisy ad,” it’s not at all over the top given the millenarian fanatics atop the Iranian government.

It’s a shame I’m not in Reed’s district; I’d love vote for him and help toss Waxman out.

I, too, have heard Mark reed speak at different events and have spoken to him about the issues. redc1c4 is full of it- or much more dense than most humans. Mark’s message is the same on his website as it is in person. I, personally, think Reed is one (of 2) of the most honest men, from either party, running for ANY political office.

I just made a contribution to his campaign and suggest others do as well. It’s unfortunate that his opponents, Sherman & Berman have tax payer money to host “town Hall” meetings during their campaigns and the new candidates have to scrap for every cent they get.

That’s precisely the reason we have career politicians- such as the two stooges.

The ad is great, and so in Mark Reed. The problem is with the so called moderate independent people, let alone the liberal people, but most especially the liberal Jews.. who actually believe that is it ok, for israel and the Jewish people to be annhialitaed of the face of the planet, in another Holocaust, again..

It’s amzaing how the conceot of Right and Wrong, Good and Bad, can be erased from the human concscience of Humanaity, by radical hate mongering propagandism.. which is no different than the Nazi’s.. amazing.. And all those who, do not stand up and say, “NO, Never again”, will most assuredly say, “OMG, what have we done”.. and that especially gos for the Liberal leftwing Jews, who in essense by their actions and words, against Israel and the Jewsih people, with their supprot of Democrats and radical leftist organizations, specifically the JFJ- Jewish Funds for Justice, a George Soros funded anti-semitic leftist Jewish oraganization, as well as J-Street, and even in the ADL, are covertly, re-electing Hitler..

This is their absolute unltimate betrayal and madness, of mindless indoctrinated insanity and stupidity..

But lets hope and pray,. that enough good non-indoctrinated people, are left to still vote for sanity of Good over Evil.. as believe me, those who wish the destruction and annihialtion of a whole race of human beings, just because they want it, actually believe that they are not doing anything wrong, as they actually belive they are right, and are good, for wanting this.. This is why their should be no delusions about trying to reason with them.. as their is no reasoning with madness and insanity, only their prevention, aka, the destruction of their ability to destroy, is what we must acheive, period, no matter what..

There’s a time for talk, and a time for action, and just like with the Nazi’s, it must never, and will never, ever be allowed to even get to that point again, period.!
