Congressional Candidate Rick Tyler: Make America White Again
No, there will not be a ballot-box solution to our problems. But Rick Tyler is getting a good deal of publicity for some important ideas — as he moves the Overton Window several feet in the correct direction.
AN INDEPENDENT candidate for Congress from Tennessee has been swept up in a wave of criticism for his campaign billboard vowing to “Make America White Again.”
Rick Tyler, who is running for the 3rd Congressional District in the northeastern part of the state, said he put up the billboard alongside Highway 411 in Polk County to make a point that “the ‘Leave It to Beaver,’ ‘Ozzie and Harriet,’ ‘Mayberry’ America of old was vastly superior to what we are experiencing today.”
In a Facebook post Wednesday night, Tyler wrote: “It was an America where doors were left unlocked, violent crime was a mere fraction of today’s rate of occurrence, there were no car jackings, home invasions, Islamic Mosques or radical Jihadist sleeper cells.”
But the billboard’s message, a spin on Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan, has been widely derided as a display of bigotry and racism.
It was taken down Tuesday night, according to ABC affiliate WTVC.
Tyler’s campaign website, featuring an illustration of the White House surrounded by a dozen Confederate flags, explains his motivation for the advertisement:
The “Make America White Again” billboard advertisement will cut to the very core and marrow of what plagues us as a nation. As Anne Coulter so effectively elucidates in her book, Adios America, the overhaul of America’s immigration law in the 1960’s has placed us on an inevitable course of demise and destruction. Yes…the cunning globalist/Marxist social engineers have succeeded in destroying that great bulwark against statist tyranny…the white American super majority. Without its expedited restoration little hope remains for the nation as a whole.
He also owns a restaurant called Whitewater Grill in Ocoee, Tenn., an unincorporated community in Polk County.
But it’s his recent campaign tactic that thrust him into the national spotlight.
In announcing his roadside statement, Tyler proposed several other billboard options on his campaign website, including one that reads, “Fight Federal Tyranny. Stop the Muslim Invasion.”
NBC affiliate WRCB reported that Tyler’s campaign put another billboard along Highway 64 showing the White House surrounded by Confederate flags. At the top of that billboard are Martin Luther King Jr.’s famous words: “I Have a Dream.”
The advertisements angered some area residents and community and state leaders.
“There’s no room for this type of hateful display in our political discourse,” Ryan Haynes, the Tennessee Republican Party chairman, told WRCB in a statement. “Racism should be rejected in all its heinous forms in the Third Congressional District and around the country.”
Rep. Charles J. “Chuck” Fleischmann (R-Tenn.), who currently represents the 3rd District, also spoke out against Tyler’s message.
“I totally and unequivocally condemn the billboard and Mr. Tyler’s message and will vigorously fight any form of racism in the 3rd district of Tennessee or anywhere else in the nation,” the congressman said in a statement to the news station.
Others have rebuked Tyler on his restaurant and campaign Facebook pages, charging that Tyler is “peddling the same old hateful KKK garbage in a new package” and has “dishonored the state of Tennessee.”
“Those who seek to set things aright are actually counter-revolutionaries, endeavoring to facilitate the restoration of lawful, constitutional government.”
Excerpts from Rick Tyler’s statement follow:
Let me begin by thanking everyone that has gotten involved in the controversy spawned by the “Make America White Again” billboard on Highway 411 in Polk County, Tennessee. I am persuaded that the overwhelming majority of you are sincere and well intentioned. Obviously, there are the “frothing at the mouth lunatics” who react in a completely irrational, emotional, Pavlovian dog fashion. Fortunately, they are a small percentage of the whole—and even they are passionately sincere albeit ignorant, misguided and lacking in self control.
A PREDICTABLE AND DESIRED RESPONSE
Be assured, the response that has been engendered by the billboard is precisely what was expected and hoped for. You see… this is not a mere publicity stunt, but rather a calculated maneuver to dispense hardcore truth while simultaneously doing an end run around the iron curtain of censorship. As Orwell stated, “In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.”
Unfortunately, a globalist cartel has long held power in our nation, and in effect, there has already been a soft revolution wherein lawful constitutional government has been supplanted by a rogue band of oligarchic criminals. Those who seek to set things aright are actually counter-revolutionaries, endeavoring to facilitate the restoration of lawful, constitutional government. Whether you realize it or not, you are all participating in this counter-revolutionary exercise irrespective of where you stand on the matter! Indeed, the brainwashing may well be too far advanced, and there may be no chance of restoration, rejuvenation, and revival in our once great nation. Like the watchman spoken of in Ezekiel 33, some of us must sound the warning of the advancing and ominous peril that is encroaching upon our civilization as a whole. Like Nineveh, there could be great repentance and revival in America. If not, we will succumb to the fate of Sodom and Gomorrah. For those who are posturing in a high and mighty stance of ostensible moral superiority, I would caution you against falling into the trap of modernism and the liberal watering down of truth. Your fathers, grandfathers and great grandfathers would have been entirely sympathetic and supportive of the preservation of a white super majority in America. They would have been utterly hostile to the concept of the mass nonwhite immigration that has ensued over the past half century….
The “Make America White Again” billboard is a takeoff on Donald Trump’s slogan of “Make America Great Again.” In a nutshell, it is stating that the “Leave It to Beaver, Ozzie and Harriet, Mayberry” America of old was vastly superior to what we are experiencing today. It was an America where doors were left unlocked, violent crime was a mere fraction of today’s rate of occurrence, there were no carjackings, home invasions, Islamic Mosques or radical Jihadist sleeper cells. Additionally, government was much smaller, responsible, and accountable to the people. Yes, that Norman Rockwell America was immensely preferable to the rapidly deteriorating culture now engulfing us.
Only the ignorant and misguided would resist its restoration and resuscitation. As set forth on the Tyler for Congress website (www.ricktylerforcongress.com) a moratorium on nonwhite immigration and the abolition of policies that subsidize nonwhite birth rates would be two constructive actions toward beginning the long journey back toward sanity and stability in our beleaguered and foundering nation.
A WHITE SUPER MAJORITY
It is no coincidence that every nation being inundated by the teeming multitudes of the third world is a white nation. It is indisputable that the white race has achieved infinitely more in the way of technology, culture and innovation than the nonwhite civilizations of history. The racial component of this phenomenon is all-important. In a blind, suicidal manner modern man overlooks this profound truth while plunging headlong toward destruction.
