A RESOLUTION TO SUPPORT REPUBLICAN DENNIS BERTRAND IN HIS EFFORT TO DEFEAT CONGRESSMAN JOHN TANNER
Whereas, a candidate named James Hart has filed as a Republican in the Eighth Congressional District who supports a racist and elitist view of man,
Whereas, Hart espouses the same brand of socialism advocated by Adolph Hitler and says that he believes that some races are “favored” over others and wants to “compete with Jesus Christ and Buddha for the destiny of man.”,
Whereas Hart himself said in a June 26 Commercial Appeal article: “I think they have every right to oppose my campaign and to have another candidate. I think it’s true that I don’t represent the ideas of the Republican Party.”,
Whereas, it is of the utmost importance for Republicans to unite around a strong Republican candidate to go against Congressman Tanner,
Whereas, a good conservative Republican candidate has stepped up to the plate to redeem our Party name and take on Congressman Tanner;
Whereas TeamGOP, a respected grassroots Republican activist group in West Tennessee has also endorsed Bertrand and asked other Republicans for support,
NOW THEREFORE, be it resolved by the Shelby County Republican Party that we strongly oppose the un-American and evil beliefs espoused by James Hart.
We agree with Dennis Bertrand that we “cannot in good conscience allow a candidate like James L. Hart to represent the Republican Party from the 8th Congressional District in the November General Election.”
We urge all 8th district Republicans to unite behind Dennis Bertrand and cast a write-in ballot for him in the August 5, 2004 election.
This resolution shall be sent to all appropriate media outlets and Republican Party Chairmen in the Eighth Congressional District.
Madison and Crockett Counties have also unanimously passed similar resolutions.
