SC Lawsuit Filed: DP Comment Repost starts GOP War - DP Member Under attack by South Carolina GOP Chairman

A DP Member, Brian Frank, needs our help here in South Carolina. The following articles, e-mails and video are concerning what has been happening concerning our "grassroot" (Brian) in South Carolina as the republicans approach their state convention.

Apparently Brian reposted a comment (http://www.dailypaul.com/comment/3018622) from the DP onto his Facebook account (has now been removed from FB) that set the SCGOP Chairman's hair on fire. The Chairman then sent out e-mails "warning" the SCGOP Executive Committees across the state to keep Brian out of any of their meetings and "told tales" during this week's Cherokee County Executive Committee Meeting (Brian's county) inferring that Brian is like "the Boston Bombers" "ranting" on the internet and "anti-semitic". Brian was also at the Cherokee County Executive Committee Meeting Monday night, where he was also in the running for Chairman for that county but had excused himself just before Chairman Connelly took the opportunity to lower-rate Brian (see video below). Brian was not elected Chairman.

I'm not exactly sure what is going on entirely as I am no longer executive committeewoman in the SCGOP and have not been keeping up with the innards of the party but I did talk to Brian this evening and Brian told me that he did repost the DP comment to Facebook because he thought it was an interesting perspective coming from a Jewish person that he had not ever heard before and posted it for informational purposes. As for threatening the Chairman, Brian guesses the only thing Chad could possibly be hinting towards "feeling threatened" was back at the RNC 2012, Chad refused to seat an alternate (also a DP member) and Brian hurriedly came to DP and posted an urgent message regarding the alternate with Chad's contact info because time was of the essence to get the alternate to the floor and Brian feels perhaps some folks probably called the Chairman to "complain veraciously" and perhaps the Chairman felt threatened by others behavior concerning the convention. Brian is confounded by the Chairman's accusations and promises he never threatened the Chairman and also guesses that what is really bothering the Chairman is Brian's rather loud state-wide promotion of Samuel Harms to replace Chad Connelly for Chairman at next week's SCGOP State Convention.

A suit has been filed against a) SCGOP Chairman, Chad Connelly b) SCGOP State Executive Committee and c) the SCGOP itself -- for 2 counts of libel and 1 count of slander. The Executive Committee and the state GOP are included in the lawsuit as well because Chairman Connelly used his official SCGOP e-mail to smear Brian state-wide.

To wrap things up, a lot of info has been linked below concerning this lawsuit, a lot of hot comments are being posted wildly across the state for and against. I can only tell you how I feel about the subject and that I feel that Brian does not deserve what happened to him. I'm sure I don't have to remind y'all how disincluded the Ron Paul folk have been from the SCGOP/GOP and the purposeful ways the establishment has tried to ruin us and run us off. Well, it's 10 times worse in South Carolina than anywhere else since we're "First in the South" primary….they really want to keep a hold down on our free speech and free thought in order to not awaken the mighty bear (Palmetto Patriots) that has been #1 in Liberty many times historically.

Brian Frank vs. Chad Connelly

As a result of a controversy created by Chad Connelly as he seeks to be re-elected as state party chairman at next week’s SCGOP convention, I decided to take a closer look at Connelly’s designated antagonist Brian Frank.

As we reported yesterday, Connelly viciously attacked Frank through e-mails last week and during the Cherokee County GOP meeting Monday night (captured on video:).

The only apparent reason for these attacks is that Frank has been actively supporting Connelly’s opponent for the post of state party chairman, Sam Harms, primarily through the use of You Tube and Facebook.

During Connelly’s diatribes, he has inferred Frank is similar to the recent ‘Boston bombers’, accused him of “rant(ing) endlessly hateful stuff” and said Frank “has threatened me and my family.”

It is interesting to note that Frank attended the Cherokee County GOP meeting Monday night without speaking to Connelly. When Frank was prevented from taking video of Connelly’s speech, he chose to leave the meeting. It was only after Frank’s departure that Connelly, pointing to Frank’s empty chair, gave his 47 second rant against Frank, which was captured on video by another individual……Continue Here

Subject: Fw: chads email to state GOP officials
 This was forwarded to me from people that Chad sent this to and I am looking for a lawyer to sue him for libel!  I never threatened him or his family!  This is a lie!
The story that Chad is talking about, I did not write and on my facebook post (which I now deleted) had a reference or where it came from.
I didnt write that story either, it came from the second page of this website

Subject: FW: Brian Frank's anti-semitism
Hey guys
Good Friday morning to all of you. As we close in on the end of our conventions and in light of the world in which we live where terrorists try their best to blend in with our culture, we cannot take anything for granted and cannot allow ourselves to associate with people who rant endlessly hateful stuff. This has come to my attention in the last few hours and I want to warn those of you in upstate meetings where I have seen this person that you do not need to let him near your meetings. I am not willing to let our people be put in danger by what is obviously a dangerous person who has sought to blend into our meetings in the not too distant past. On a related note, Brian Frank has threatened me and my family in the past and he is the primary Facebook, twitter, email and text person supporting Sam Harms. I hope that Sam is distancing himself from Brian and has realized that this is just not a good person. Please be advised of this angry rant and inform any security personnel that he should not be allowed in our meetings.
God Bless and have a Fabulous Friday!

Some things are too surreal to invent (https://www.facebook.com/notes/brian-frank/the-story-of-a-fo...):
"I feel compelled to chime in. In all my years on the DP, I may have made some anti-Zionist posts, but I have never explained where I got my perspective. Out of respect for Dr. Paul, I kept my "anti-Semitic" thoughts to myself. But now that this website has little to do with Ron Paul, and he is not running for anything, it really doesn't matter what anyone thinks of me as far as how I represent Ron Paul.
I was born a "Jew", that is, the biological son of Jewish parents, in a New Jersey suburb. Born into the dangerous, powerful, supremecist cult of Judaism. Judaism is not a religion. Religion by its very definition implies a belief in God, but Jews are Godless people. I have known thousands of them in my life, and I've never met one who actually had a belief in any kind of god that they could articulate or express. That fact should be obvious to anyone who is aware of how they have totally corrupted American culture with their violence, profanity, pornography and immorality which they have brought to the mainstream.
I even had a Bar-mitzvah, though I ran away from home that day, and when I was finally found I was dragged kicking and screaming, and late, to the event. It was quite a humiliating experience to be forced to get up on a stage and sing in Hebrew in front of more than 100 Jews. I didn't even understand the first thing about Israel and Palestine at that time, and the horrors which the Jewish people had inflicted on the people whose land they stolen in a genocidal frenzy of bloodlust and murder. I only knew that I considered all the "role models" at the temple to be mean and horrible people.
Escaping a cult is never easy, and I would imagine Judaism is one of the hardest to escape. The indoctrination and brainwashing is so effective, especially when you learn it as a child and know nothing else. More importantly, Jews are such hateful and vengeful people, that it would be virtually impossible to renounce them and still live among them.
I speak from personal knowledge and experience when i say that Jews are greedy, elitist, arrogant, hateful, usurious,racist, litigious, profane, dishonest, immoral, godless troublemakers who destroy everything in their path. I'm not saying that all Jews are all of those things, but the vast majority are most of those things, if not all. Even though they don't believe in God, they somehow believe they are God's "chosen people", and that the rest of humanity is only put here to serve them.
There are some Jews who have made positive contributions to society. For example, I listen to Peter Schiff and watch his videos every day, been doing it for years. I have learned so much from him about economics that I'm probably on the level of someone who's earned a Masters degree. So I do respect him, but it doesn't mean I'd want to hang out with him on a personal basis or go to a seder at the Schiff home.
The Jews have a history of sneaking around the world, infiltrating countries, taking over the media, the banks, the entertainment, and eventually getting control of governments themselves. Historically, the people of the world have become aware of their pernicious influence and driven them out before their countries have become totally depraved and corrupted and destroyed the way the USA is today. The Jews would have you believe that they are the eternal victims of blind hate and prejudice, that they are pure as the driven snow and have never done anything to anyone which might cause someone to dislike them. In reality, the supposed "victims" are the biggest victimizers in the history of the world.
I believe anyone who identifies themselves as a "Jew" is identifying themselves as something which is inherently evil. That's why I ask the question "what is wrong with being 'anti-Semitic'?" The phrase is simply synonomous with 'anti-evil'. I would think that people would be proud to speak out against such a history of supremecism, domination and treachery.
Some might say "how can you condemn a whole group of people like that? Doesn't that make you full of hate yourself?" To the contrary. Jews represent .2 percent of the world's population, or 1 out of every 500 people. So the flip side of hating .2 percent of the world's population is that I have nothing but love, compassion and tolerance for 99.8% of humanity. It's not possible to love Jews and love the rest of humanity. Stated differently, if you love humanity you cannot love Jews, since it is apparently their mission to destroy the "goyim" and the Muslims and create a "Jewish utopia" here on earth, free of everyone else.
Does anyone really believe that this minority, this .2% of the world's population, does not have a level of power in this world which is totally disproportionate to their numbers?
As for the distinction between "Judaism" and "Zionism", I'm aware that some say not all Jews are Zionists, and not all Zionists are Jews. This is true, and it could be said that a Zionist is one whose stated beliefs are Jewish supremecism and a Jewish homeland. But the broader, global problem is definitely a "Jewish problem". Without Jews, there would be no wars in the Middle East, there would be no systematic destruction of the currency through the Federal Reserve, no culture of abortion, profanity, pornography,psychotropc drugs, violence as entertainment, etc.etc.etc.
Certainly the Jews out there will despise me and call me a "self-hating Jew".
That is how they try to smear or discredit anyone who speaks the truth about them. I laugh and respond by saying that I am not "self-hating", I am in fact "self-loving", and I am not a "Jew", so how then can I be a "self-hating" Jew? And, by the way, is there such thing as a "self-loving" Jew? It seems to be an oxymoron.
Based on all the sentiments expressed above, as well as more evidence which I could go on about in perpetuity, I feel it is not only acceptable, but imperative that those here on the Daily Paul feel free to recognize and name the real enemy facing the United States and the world today. The United States will never escape the dire situation it is in today as long as the majority of people either don't understand who the real enemy is, or if they are too fearful to name and confront them.
For those interested in more of this subject, I highly recommend Mark Glenn's theuglytruth.wordpress.com for the most insightful aricles and podcasts on the subject. Go to youtube and listen to any of Mark Glenn or Pastor Mark Dankof's programs."

Hey John
This is one of Brian Frank’s rants…I would highly suggest that you/me/the party, etc TOTALLY distance ourselves from this guy. Use this as you see fit with your folks if he is a problem. I’ll be there Monday night and if needed, we will make sure he is not involved in your party in any way. Thanks brother

Your post is an accurate depiction of events. I was the provisional/alternate SC National delegate that had the next highest vote totals at BOTH the district and the state conventions, which many here supported my trip to Tampa (which I am still to this day extremely grateful). When I was checking into the Convention hotel and registering for my credentials, I was informed that since I had been working against Chad by sending an email in opposition to his NOT certifying a republican candidate who won his own primary, my position was given to 2 different people with less vote totals!!! Brian posted the events here on DP and the members acted as expected with a barrage of phone calls to Chad's cell phone.

But those Bible thumping sheeple are behind the times.

The Upstate isnt!

Welcome to politics.

What in the hell was the guy thinking? This is 21013, anything you say on the internet can an will be used against you in the court of public opinion.

same goes

for him too



You mean like this troublesome fellow:

Ron Paul was already out of office so it isn't the same. The point is, you have to be careful if you are running for office and exercise the 1st willy nilly. Campaigns hire people and pay them hundreds of thousands of dollars to search the internet for ANYTHING they could use against you. Elections are about public opinion, period.

SC Politics

is a crazy game to play!


This is South Carolina*: where we are due to vote Mark Sanford back in for SC-1 over Stephen Colbert's sister (which I am fine with myself).

So Ron Paul has never said anything that stirred up a hornets nest while in office? Riiiight....LMAO

To thine own self be true? Frankly, I'm tired of "playing the game". It's gotten us nowhere.
