Pre-Debate – GOP Meeting Video Reveals RNC Committeeman Discussing How To Get Rid of Donald Trump…

This video was taken in Charleston South Carolina on the morning of the GOP debate.  Along with RNC head Reince Priebus, Fox’s Dana Perino and all of the National Republican Party Leadership were in attendance.  Holland Redfield, an RNC committeeman who represents the Virgin Islands is speaking:

This was the RNC meeting/convention in South Carolina prior to the debate later in the day.   The membership from this entire group apparatus is who comprised the audience.

Do the audience responses evident in the debate broadcast make more sense now?

Here’s an article from Politico: CHARLESTON, S.C. — A Republican National committeeman delivered a call-to-arms against Donald Trump during a closed-door GOP meeting on Thursday, urging his colleagues to take a forceful stand against those who he said are destroying the party’s brand.

At a breakfast at the RNC winter meeting, Holland Redfield, an RNC committeeman who represents the minority-rich Virgin Islands, rose to address party Chairman Reince Priebus.

In the five-minute impromptu speech, a video recording of which Redfield provided to POLITICO, Redfield did not explicitly mention Trump’s name. But he made clear that angry voices in the party pose a grave threat to the GOP’s future, and expressed alarm at what he described as crushing pressure to play nice.

You can argue with me, but we’re almost terrorized as members of our party. ‘Shut up. Toe the line, embrace each other, and let’s go forward.’ I understand that. But there is a limit to loyalty. I am loyal to this party by speaking out on these very issues,” he said at the private breakfast meeting.

At one point, Redfield essentially argued that those in the room have been held hostage by Trump’s threat to run as a third-party candidate if the party hierarchy treats him unfairly.

“As a party, we owe it to ourselves to speak up, and not let the tail wag the dog, and not let someone say, all of a sudden, ‘If you don’t play my game, then I’m running as an independent.” (read more and watch video)

What a complete pompous ass.  These are the party heads in charge of the elections.  Imagine what these party heads will do at a national convention when Donald Trump is the winner ?

Now you know why I have been referring to this as an insurgency for the past 7 Months !!

    When this man says he is concerned about the lack of respect for some religious factions, he is obviously talking about Islam. He is obviously a coward and a dhimmi.

    They, including the talk show hosts, love to tell what a true conservative is. Well let me tell you, a true conservative is not a shimmy. A true conservative would halt the Muslim invasion of our country before doing any thing else. A true conservative would vote for Donald Trump.

    Trump can’t be bought and Trump is not a dhimmi.

      A dhimmī (Arabic: ذمي‎ ḏimmī, IPA: [ˈðɪmmiː], collectively أهل الذمة ahl al-ḏimmah/dhimmah “the people of the dhimma”) is a historical[1] term referring to non-Muslim citizens of an Islamic state.[1] The word literally means “protected person.”[2] According to scholars, dhimmis had their rights fully protected in their communities, but as citizens in the Islamic state, had certain restrictions,[3] and it was obligatory for them to pay the jizya tax, which complemented the zakat, or Islamic tax, paid by the Muslim subjects.[4] Dhimmis were excluded from specific duties assigned to Muslims, and did not enjoy certain political rights reserved for Muslims, but were otherwise equal under the laws of property, contract, and obligation.[5][6]
      Under sharia, the dhimmi communities were usually subjected to their own special laws, rather than some of the laws which were applicable only to the Muslim community. For example, the Jewish community in Medina was allowed to have its own Halakhic courts,[7] and the Ottoman millet system allowed its various dhimmi communities to rule themselves under separate legal courts. These courts did not cover cases that involved religious groups outside of their own community, or capital offences. Dhimmi communities were also allowed to engage in certain practices that were usually forbidden for the Muslim community, such as the consumption of alcohol and pork.[8][9][10]
      Historically, dhimmi status was originally applied to Jews, Christians, and Sabians. This status later also came to be applied to Zoroastrians, Mandaeans, Hindus, and Buddhists.[11][page needed][12] Eventually, the Hanafi school, the largest school of Islamic jurisprudence, and the Maliki school, the second largest school of Islamic jurisprudence, applied this term to all non-Muslims living in Islamic lands outside the sacred area surrounding Mecca, in present-day Saudi Arabia.[13] Some modern Hanafi scholars, however, do not make any legal distinction between a non-Muslim dhimmi and a Muslim citizen.[citation needed]

    Good Video
    So agree…Cruz got up in the polls so he got over confident and bit Trump—BIT Trump Very HARD..
    ‘Once allies, Ted Cruz became too confident and in a bid for power, attacked Donald Trump AND New York City. Can Donald Trump defend his city from his former ally, or will Ted Cruz finally be the one to Stump the Trump? Ted has learned much from his apprenticeship under the Donald, but much like a snake, he bit the hand that fed him.”

    This whole video episode is the weirdest thing. Not that a GOPe/RNC guy would say that Trump is angry, we can’t have it, the party brand, blah blah. We have heard that over and over. The only thing in his rant that I thought was some kind of tell was the race card. One of the first things he complained about was racist slurs, then much later he seemed to be complaining that minority candidates (Rubio, Cruz, –and Carson?) were being put down. It seems like he’s saying we’ve got to check the minority box because that’s Who We Are (TM).
    But more important, who is the person at this meeting who took the video and gave it to Politico? There didn’t seem to be many people there, only saw 3 others and heard few more. Why a lefty outfit like Politico? It isn’t the choir Redfield is preaching to. The comments on the Politico site are mostly anti-Trump. No one is paying attention to the party aspect or this guy. It seems to serve no purpose for the GOPe, any of their candidates, Redfield himself, or the Democrats who would have all the same arguments as Redfield.

    I have this to say to any GOPe that’s reading (probably not).

    If you don’t want Trump as the Nominee and you think he’s “ruining” the Republican brand, then you don’t want me and I will quickly oblige your wishes if Trump is forced out of the nomination using underhanded tricks or manipulating the rules.

    It’s that simple. Republicans do not have any more room with me. One twitch wrong, One word wrong and I’m voting for anyone else that I can legally.

    You will have made a fatal mistake because I am not alone.

    • After the fiascoes of 2012 and 2014 where the majorities in the House and Senate refuse to shut down the agenda like they promised I have not given ANY money to the party whatsoever. Until Trump, there has not been any other way to express my dissatisfaction with their ‘leadership’ than to withhold my monetary support. Now I pray Trump wins and fixes this group of ‘all talk and no action.’

      It’s identity politics versus nationalism, to the GOPe the color of someone’s skin does matter. Mr. Redfield, I don’t know you, but as someone who supports Mr. Trump let me assure you he is not racist, we simply see the world differently than you do. Identity politics will lead you to conclude that balancing the budget or opposing the Affordable Care Act or enforcing immigration laws is racist. (Yes, President Obama himself has restricted immigration from war torn countries for national security purposes. Yet, you would not call him racist.) ** An aside, the solution to the Syrian refugee crisis is not finding a home for 4 million Syrian refugees world wide, but stabilizing Syria, so that these refugees can return to their homes.**
      Identity politics professes that a human being’s political views are best reduced to the color of their skin, their gender, religion or ethnicity. This reduction is the product of a detached elite who does not want to know what its constituents think and so reduce free thinking individuals to groups. Mr. Redfield, I do not know you, but I would not profess to know you based on your gender race or ethnicity. That Mr. Trump wants to suspend immigration until the conflict in Syria is resolved is not so unusual, in fact, Speaker Ryan himself called for such a “pause.” Mr. Redfield you started out your comments by saying everybody has a dog in this fight, clearly Donald Trump is not your dog. I would have left it at that. Mr. Trump is not racist and identity politics is divisive and destructive.

    This morning, George Stephanopoulos tried to catch Donald Trump off guard. He said a woman wrote a letter to some news outlet [the name escapes me] and proceed to read the letter to Donald:
    My eleven year old son was adopted from a foreign country and his skin color is darker than ours, so now he is afraid that Donald Trump will send him back to his birth country.

    Stephanopoulos asked Donald Trump: How do you respond to that?

    Donald Trump simply said “The boy will be fine” and then began explaining how important it is for our country to have borders.
    Donald Trump handled it beautifully.

    Here’s an idea – Why doesn’t the mother be a responsible parent and educate her own children? Was it really necessary to write a letter to some media outlet, attempting to pull on somebody’s sympathy strings?? And shame on George Stephanopoulos for even putting forth that ridiculous question.

    • An excellent video by these Trump supporters, of which I am one, too.

      The Republican Party does not represent OUR political values as Americans. When people such as Lindsey Graham talk about “my party”, he is right. It IS his party, not OURS!

      The term “RINO” came about because of Republicans having DEMOCRAT PARTY values. As they have repeatedly proven to us through their actions and inactions, the majority of those in the Republican Party at this time are simply “Republican-In-Name-Only!” Did they think we hadn’t already seen this…or wouldn’t finally say “enough is enough!”?

      It is quite clear to me that NONE of them ever expected someone to come into the picture to DEFEND US…to STAND UP FOR US, and they’re p-i-s-s-e-d! They could have shot down a “regular Joe” just by withholding donations to that person’s campaign, but, with TRUMP, this is an impossibility…and both they and Trump KNOW this.

      It took a lot of guts for Trump to throw his hat into the presidential ring. He knew he’d be starting a firestorm with the RINOs because he doesn’t need their donations, can’t be controlled, and he’s just like the rest of us…sick and tired of watching our Constitution get shredded, and our country go down the tubes.

      The RINOS in this Republican Party are correct when they say Trump doesn’t have the same “party values” as they have.

      And We the People are saying “THANK GOD!”

    He is false………he will never protect America.
    When asked about Ted Cruz’s “New York values” charge, Trump said, “The truth is, he’s a nasty guy. Nobody likes him. Nobody in Congress likes him. Nobody likes him anywhere, once they get to know him. He’s a very — he’s got a edge that’s not good. You can’t make deals with people like that, and it’s not a good thing for the country. Very nasty guy.”

  15. Listen to that video again (if you can stand it.) To me, it sounds like a total endorsement of … TRUMP! How did Redfield have to win in the VI? He had to “go around the party” and talk to “all the groups” that apparently the party was not supporting. Who does that remind you of?

    Funny Redfield was talking about brining in all factions, and that is exactly what Trump is doing, but somehow it is all about anger? This guy Redfield is the exact kind of GOP persona I despise, pompous, arrogant, white guy that is above everyone else. Somehow I have trouble seeing him getting his soft hands dirty doing door knocking, that is for the little people to do to get him elected.

    Redfield talks about not letting the tail wag the dog. He sees the “dog” as the GOP and the “tail” as the candidates. That’s a pretty arrogant point of view. Mine is that the dog is the electorate–the voters who are going to elect or not elect candidates–and the tail is the party. What he’s advocating is exactly having the tail (GOP) wag the dog (us).

    Little wonder he only represents the Virgin Islands and not a state. And that it took him three tries to get elected ~there.~ Calling him a pompous ass gives pompous asses a bad name.
