I received a link from a great friend, Alexandra Foster, in California about a California candidate, Craig Huey, running for Congress in District 36. After reading the link sad to say I was NOT shocked! In Mr Huey’s own words:
“Last night, hundreds of people hissed and booed me when I stood up and supported the nation of Israel”
I was stunned and shocked as I spoke to several hundred people. My wife, Shelly, was frightfully worried about my physical safety.
I was speaking at a candidates’ forum in Venice. All the candidates running against me were present. And all the candidates had received advance questions…all except me.
When I gave my opening remarks, I began to be booed. In fact, every time I answered questions, audience members hissed, booed and shouted.
But when the subject eventually turned to Israel, an angry crowd turned into something far uglier and fearsome.
You can read the article in it’s entirety here.
Earlier today I called Mr Huey’s campaign office to express my support. As an American who believes in freedom of speech, yes even for silly misinformed liberals, I was outraged that the disrespect was so rampant at this event. If you don’t agree with a candidate DON’T VOTE FOR THEM! To get angry to the level that these liberals did is just outrageous! We must never run from our beliefs for fear that others will get angry and this is why I ask that you PLEASE support Craig Huey in his run for Congress.
You can donate to his campaign and help spread the word about the special election on Tuesday May 17th, 2011…..

P.S. That evening, after we made it out of Venice in one piece, my wife reminded me about the taunting David received when he dared face Goliath. I have confidence in victory, just like David. And that will happen with your support. To help make it happen, please click here.
