VIDEO: Mark Meadows launches first television ad of primary campaign

Mark Meadows is the first of eight Republican candidates in North Carolina’s 11th Congressional District to begin airing TV ads. Here’s the press release and video of the Meadows ad:

HENDERSONVILLE, NC – Conservative Christian businessman Mark Meadows took to the airwaves this morning in the race to represent Western North Carolina in Congress. Meadows is the first of eight Republican candidates in North Carolina’s 11th Congressional District to begin airing TV ads. He introduces himself to voters as a small businessman who is driven by a moral obligation to stop Barack Obama’s assault on Western North Carolina values. Meadows ads can be seen on broadcast and cable TV stations throughout the 11th Congressional District.

“From Obamacare, to our state’s upcoming marriage amendment, President Obama has run roughshod over Western North Carolinians’ values, and I’m running to stop him.” stated Meadows. “Guided by my unwavering faith and my experience starting a small business, I won’t rest until his policies are repealed and replaced with conservative solutions, so our economy can grow and Western North Carolinians can have jobs again.”
Meadows is a fiscal and social conservative who has served on numerous boards and was recently appointed to the State Board for Economic Development in Western North Carolina, because of his expertise in business and job creation. He is a strong supporter of Second Amendment rights, a Christian Conservative and a champion of “Life, Liberty, and Lower Taxes.”

In recent weeks, Meadows has won back-to-back straw polls in Burke, Henderson, Caldwell, Buncombe, Transylvania and Swain Counties. He has also picked up major endorsements from 2010 GOP nominee Jeff Miller, the Family Research Council’s Action PAC and Dr. Michael Farris, the founder of the Home School Legal Defense Association. Meadows is also supported by numerous County Sheriffs and other elected officials throughout North Carolina.

  1. In his video, Meadows states that he favors violating the rights of certain individuals whom he deems to be inferior according to his religious beliefs.

    Gay individuals are first class citizens and are married if they say so. Only government force can prevent these individuals from exercising their unalienable rights.

    Therefore, Mark Meadows is an unacceptable candidate for elective office.

    Next.

    What a load of FoxNews worthy bunch of pious, hypocritical, false horse crap.

    The GOP is deader than dead if this is the kind of nonsense it hopes to go forward with in the 21st century.

    Give up, get out of the way, and let’s get this country moving forward again.

      “The GOP is deader than dead if this is the kind of nonsense it hopes to go forward with in the 21st century.”

      I think you overestimate the 21st century.

      That qualifies as a ‘Snopes’ for you? He just called the entire CPC a bunch of Communist Party members.

      Imagine if Barney Frank called a bunch of Republicans “card-carrying members of the American Nazi Party”. He would and should be censured by the House, for publicly lying about the party affiliation of a group of his fellow legislators.

      But there will be enough mean, stupid people supporting Allen West’s comments, that everyone else will be cowed into looking the other way…

      So you agree with the imbecile it seems. No surprise there. And as for “McCarthy was right”, you really should pick up a history book sometime. McCarthy’s whole career was spent lying about his opponents, making up heroic deeds he’d supposedly done in battle and ultimately was discredited publicly and ran off with his tail between his legs, to leave a legacy of shame.

      But again, no surprise you’d be a fan.

    Let’s not let ancillary disagreements distract from the rare occurrence of concurrence on the main issue of this Meadows muffin being a wholly untenable a whole and not fit for a public, representative office.

    I’m just surprised the conservative Derp-o-bots haven’t shown up yet to tell us how “small-minded” and “intolerant” we are.

  5. “He just called the entire CPC a bunch of Communist Party members.”

    I guess it’s called humor; which progressives are woefully short on; preferring to focus instead on “are you now or have you ever been a conservative” hatred and slander. It’s oh-so McCarthyesque.

    “‘The Congressman was referring to the 76 members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus. The Communist Party has publicly referred to the Progressive Caucus as its allies. The Progressive Caucus speaks for itself. These individuals certainly aren’t proponents of free markets or individual economic freedom,’ Melvin said in a statement to The Huffington Post.”

      “it’s called humor; which progressives are woefully short on”

      Well, it is true that right-wingers are a mirthful bunch. Just look at the clown show of has-beens currently being trotted out to run for President.

    • Dionysis

      Melvin is lying.

      “The Palm Beach Post reported that West told the audience at a Tuesday town hall meeting that he

      “I guess it’s called humor”

      Then why did you just pass it on as if you were under the impression it is true?

    If you have to guess, that means you don’t know.

    Well, this clip, straight from Allen West’s campaign, shows that he’s not cracking a smile, and neither are the audience.

    This “the Progressive Caucus are actually Communist Party members” line isn’t an off-the-cuff joke. This has been a staple of the lunatic Right for years, and serves as political porn for Freepers:

    This is called ‘red-baiting’, and it’s an insult to the intelligence of anyone who knows how American politics works. You can’t get elected to Congress if you’re a member of the Communist Party. If you believe that 80 people actually did that, you’re an idiot.

  7. Dionysis

    Allen West is relevant in that he is today’s Tea Party darling. This is the same character that hired someone named Joyce Kaufman to be his Chief of Staff, who advocated the hanging of undocumented workers. This is the same whack job that recently blamed women for the deficit. He publicly stated that Obama and Democrats should “get the hell out of this country.” This guy is about as radical a right-winger as to be found, and none of his McCarthyisms (which even some Republicans are backing away from), his frequent misogynist or homophobic rants have been repudiated by his faithful. Why, shades of GW, he even stated he’s serve as VP candidate if it was “God’s will.”

    Today’s right-wingers are so bereft of ideas beyond the same factually discredited drivel they’ve always upchucked that they are left with only lies, vilification and emotionally charged hyperbole to keep the base stoked.

    If only that were the worst. At a Tea Party rally, she came out with the infamous line,

      Hey, it just keeps getting better. It was reported earlier today that West, in a speech to a handful of senior citizens in Florida (who may or may not have been afflicted with senile dementia to allow him there) that a proposed tax on tanning beds in Florida was “racist.”

      I guess that is another example of wingnut humor.
