Open Letter To Oklahoma GOP Chairman, Matt Pinnell Regarding the Republican National Convention

Dear Matt,

I was at the RNC last week, as well as the week prior due to the contest committee. There are some major issues that I feel need to be addressed.

I know you said at our State Convention in May that you would go to bat for the Executive Committee slate 365 days a year. If the slate had been elected by the Oklahoma State Party rules, I would have no problem with that. But, the slate was elected by breaking the rules of the Oklahoma Republican Party, as well as the Convention Rules.

As you know very well, I was present as a witness at the Contest Committee of the RNC, as well as the Credentials Committee. So much of what I heard come out of your mouth were complete lies, just to get this slate of wrongfully elected delegates seated. I won’t argue over all of that again, as we heard each other’s arguments multiple times in Tampa.

On the OK GOP website you wrote that we had “a successful RNC Convention” last week. What you call a “successful RNC Convention” was a complete sham. As we saw numerous times in the week leading up to the Convention, the Committee on Contests & the Credentials committee unseated duly elected delegates from Maine, Louisiana, Oregon & Massachusetts. The Rules Committee also rammed through rules that completely take away the power from the grassroots.

Once we were on the Convention floor on Tuesday, both Reince Priebus and Speaker Boehner could have cared less for what the delegates wanted. The delegates made their voice loudly heard when a large amount voted against the Credentials report. And then an even larger amount voted against the Rules report. Even our own National Committeewoman, Carolyn McClarty, was opposed to the changes that were shoved through the Rules Committee. There was division called for over and again & points of order raised, yet because it was not on the teleprompter, Chairman Priebus and Speaker Boehner didn’t acknowledge the voice of the people (the delegates).

I would hope this would disturb you, Matt. But, when I see your complete disregard for rules to be followed at the State level, it doesn’t surprise me that you don’t seem to blink an eye at the railroad job that was our National Convention last week.

What happened last week was a complete embarrassment to the Republican Party. How do we expect to change the terrible course our nation is on when our own Party can’t follow the rules? When our own Party won’t hear the voice of the people (delegates)? By supporting what happened last week, you are supporting shunning the voice of the people, breaking rules, & unseating rightfully elected delegates. What the Oklahoma Republican Party should be doing right now, instead of supporting what happened last week, is standing up to the RNC and pointing out the disgusting tactics that were used at the Convention.

How can we say the Republican Party is for the people when our Party won’t even hear the voice of the people at the National Convention level? Or how can we say we’ll get this country back on track, when we do things just as bad as the Democrats at the Party level? It’s time we stand up for what is right, even if it involves exposing our own Republican Party. People need to see the hypocrisy that the Republican Party has in it. If we don’t fix our own Party, how do we expect to fix the country?

Matt, I know you have the potential to go far in the Republican Party, but if you continue to ignore the breaking of rules and support the kind of things that went on at the Convention last week, you are doing yourself and the Republican Party more harm than good. I plan to stay in the Party, speak up for what is right, even if people don’t want to hear it, and hope to change this Party. I plan to stay involved so that people who condone breaking the rules and ignoring the will of the delegates are held accountable, and cannot get away with this corruption any longer. I hope you will consider what I say here and change your ways before our Party is destroyed even more.

Sincerely,

Qadoshyah Fish

I'd like to see his reply, if he has one.

E-V-E-R-Y-O-N-E who got screwed over MUST DO THIS!

This is what the "R3VOLUTION" calls on us to do! Great Job Q Fish! PLEASE make sure that every Delegate writes a letter and start a Thread with the Letters written and the BlowBack that they received.

Ron Paul would be proud!!!

Great job!

What exactly does "open letter" mean?

Is it in a local paper where he'll have to address it or just some thing here that a few RP-ers and maybe he will see? If it's the latter, if he didn't blink an eye then, then why would he blink an eye now?

"Open letter" means it's public

and posted on blogs/fb/papers (haven't gotten to sending it to the editor yet!). It's been blogged and tweeted quite a bit already :).

It has already caused him to "blink an eye", as we have a scheduled meeting with him soon because of this :).

Terrific letter! I am glad

Terrific letter! I am glad you took the time. I am so sick of politicians who WANT something, besides serving US to regain our Republic. These people who want power and money are not those I wish to vote for, nor have in office anymore.

Your letters/emails mean more than you think!

Thank you

After Matt's performance at State GOP here in OK, my wife and I decided he should be replaced!

Great letter Fish...

Have you heard back from this psycho?

"Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is argument of tyrants. It is the creed of slaves." William Pitt in the House of Commons November 18, 1783
"I have one word for you...predator drones. Oh, you think I'm kidding?" Obombya

Yes, I hand delivered the letter to him

and had quite a discussion with him about the letter. It ended with him asking to have a meeting with us to know where we want to go from here and how we want to move forward.

I thought he would just get mad at me and that would be the end of my ability to talk to our state chair (because we seem to be able to have a relationship where we can talk right now). He was upset at first, but calmed down and the conversation ended well.

He will be our state chair for a little while longer, so I have to do what I can with him still. This doesn't mean compromise at all, this means showing him what the liberty movement stands for and where we want to go from here and what we want done.

I trust this will help change things in Oklahoma. We shall shee.

You are a very smart lady Fish...

watch that this shill doesn't try to appease you and continue forward with his involvement with the status quo...

I have no doubt

that he may try to appease me. But, I can hope that my working with him, even if he is just doing it to appease me (and our movement here), will work to change him and therefore the Republican Party. Gotta start somewhere :)!

It'd be like meeting the man who raped...

...your wife or daughter.

Wouldn't it?

Sure he'd be mad, but when he realized you weren't going to kill him or injure him, he calmed down and wanted to make nice.

Not much consolation to the evil he already perpetuated, would you say?

What could he possibly do to make up for his past sins? What is done is done.

I hope he's happy with his 30 pieces of silver, and for selling his soul. Of course he won't be, and can't be happy. He is living a life of misery, with his gifts from the Establishment.

Ironically, he may have felt better if you tarred and feathered him. He then might feel he paid something. But as it is, justice has not been served.

It's even hard for you, the "husband/father" of the victim, to feel good about the situation.

The moral of the story: we need to rout out these rapists, and elect good men and women to their positions.

Thank you, Q! Well done!

Thank you

for all you have done and continue to do. It matters and thank you.

You're welcome, but THANK YOU

to everyone for all the encouraging words and inspiration. Without the support & encouragement from everyone in the liberty movement, it would be a lot harder to go through all of this :).

Great Letter

I particularly like how you emphasize the fact that you're not going anywhere. I know lots of people want to leave the party, and that's their right, but for those of us who stay we must make it clear that we are the future. I also like when you said, "Matt, I know you have the potential to go far in the Republican Party." He certainly does, and I think he's still young enough to "get it" if he understand the implications of what he is currently doing. I just hope his future with the party is not with the establishment. Har har. ;)

I hope lots of people dont leave the party

And I think its our job to educate them why leaving the party is counter productive. Dr Paul himself said that he was better off as a republican for ballot access, debate access ...etc

The more open letters and articles the better!

Also giving copies of those to every Romney delegate might help them understand why there is now a schism in the Republican Party.

betty

And a very real possibility

And a very real possibility that Romney will lose in November.

I tweeted this to him

and the Oklahoma Republican Party and Christian Conservatives on twitter.

Spot on!

Your points are much kinder than mine would have been. He knows he is exposed now. He has destroyed any credibility he might have been able to salvage after the State Convention. But he just had to go two for two!

You tell him! and....

you can add my name to the list, too!
