We wish all our members, families and friends of the Queens Village Republican Club a most happy and meaningful Fourth of July. As we celebrate our national holiday, it’s important to keep it’s meaning in mind, which was so eloquently expressed by Frederick R. Bedell Jr., Grand Knight of St. Anastasia Knights of Columbus Council #5911.
Remember the Reason for the Fourth of July
By Frederick R. Bedell Jr.
The Fourth of July is a day of great importance. In 1776 we fought as a people for a birth of a new nation founded on Democracy. Since then we have fought many wars and many lives were lost for the cause of democracy. In this democracy, we have the right to speak our minds and the right to vote for those who will represent our rights of freedom and justice for all.
So the next election, please get out and vote. Let not our ancestors, who have died for what most of us hold most dear, and that is freedom, to have died in vain. As it says in the Declaration of Independence, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, that among them these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” So, let freedom ring on the 4th of July. Remember this too: The 4th of July is not just a day off, for store sales and barbecues but a day to celebrate our day of independence from tyranny.

CATTLE CARS, ZYKLON B & US REPRESENTATIVE OCASIO-CORTEZ’S EVOCATIVE IMAGERY
REPUBLICAN STATE COMMITTEE CANDIDATES HOWARD NEIMAN AND
EVANGELINE BALASKAS SPEAK OUT
Meadows, NY – The Queens
Republican Patriots unequivocally condemn the disturbing comments of NY’s 14th
District US Representative, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who equated American detention
centers for the thousands of persons uncontrolledly amassing and seeking
illegal entry at our southern borders with “concentration camps”, a term
universally and infamously recognized as the key staging point for the vicious
Nazi campaign to exterminate innocent Jews throughout Europe.
so, Queens Republican Patriots decry the astonishing silence of an intimidated
Democratic leadership in Congress as well as the absence locally of our Queens
GOP leadership to confront Representative Ocasio-Cortez’s comments.
at our border were started under the Obama Administration in keeping with US
law requiring all unvetted immigrants illicitly seeking entry at our border to be
processed and, as appropriate, released with future court dates (for which most
do not show up).
be separated from their parents for several reasons, including the adults
accompanying them cross our border illegally and are placed in adult
facilities, to enable community-based alternatives for juveniles1
and to determine if the children are victims of human trafficking. Detention centers for accompanied and
unaccompanied minors are designed as much as possible to keep children
comfortable, safe and well cared for, with video games, computers, and outdoor
disingenuous to ignore the fact that our government seeks humane treatment of
all who arrive illegally at our border within the realities of overwhelming
numbers, shortage of best residential options and failure of Congress to
allocate needed funds to rapidly build desired residential options that
simultaneously address the needs of immigrants and the needs of a lawful
Balaskas (R-25AD), Queens Republican Patriots (QRP) candidate for Republican NY
State Committee, said: “Representative Ocasio-Cortez’s comments equating the
humane treatment of adults and children here illegally to the systematic
rounding up, torture, and extermination of millions of Jews is beyond ignorant
and dangerous. Some Democrats say not to take her words seriously. But we have to. She is equating America to
Nazi Germany and using her position and popularity to sow discord, spread
propaganda, and undermine our national security.”
Neiman (R-25AD), Ms. Balaskas’ co-QRP candidate for Republican NY State
Committee, an Orthodox Jewish community leader, noted: “Words enter the brain,
evoke imagery which evokes behavior. Representative Ocasio-Cortez was not
unaware of the imagery she was stirring into the American psyche. It is hard to
imagine she is not aware of the world’s pervasive concentration camp imagery –
cattle cars, Arbeit Macht Frei, zyklon B, mountains of children’s shoes. But, she clearly knowingly evoked this vile
imagery to score a political point. In
war terminology, let’s say she was hugely and disingenuously “disproportionate”. Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez’s words pierced the
souls of her 14th District constituents, several thousand of whom
may very well be Nazi concentration camp survivors.”
against Jews in NYC are up 82% in 2019, Jews suffering disproportionately as
over 50% of documented hate crimes are anti-Jewish2. Queens
Republican Patriots are speaking up for our Jewish family and friends even when
the entire national Democratic establishment falters and the establishment
Queens GOP offers not a word of outrage or solace to their constituents.
Republican Patriots call upon Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to retract those words
and apologize to America and specifically the Jewish people.
Queens Republican Patriots also call upon our Congressional leaders to lead and denounce comments, such as those by Representative Ocasio-Cortez, that enable antisemitism.
Be there to speak
Stop Pelosi’s lies and obstruction.
Tell her to stop thwarting President Trump’s agenda to Keep America Great!
Tell her that we support President Trump and his America First policies.
Tell her that her Party has been taken over by extreme leftist lunatics,
anti-American, anti-Semitic, Anti-Christian traitors and socialists.
Tell her “Build the Wall”
Stop illegal immigration
Save our city, state, and country
Speak up and get organized. Take back New York City.
