|Pro-family activism that makes a difference!|
Massive robo-call and email blast of MassResistance material in primary election states: Millions of voters reached!
Exposing aggressive pro-homosexual positions of Romney.
POSTED: March 12, 2012
As the 2012 presidential primary races are heating up, MassResistance is being called on to expose an important issue that the mainstream media (even Fox News) won't talk about. Millions of emails and robo-calls with MassResistance's information went to voters in key states leading up to Super Tuesday, which likely made a difference, say activists.
Romney's positions (and record) that the media doesn't talk about
Over the past few months Mitt Romney has emerged as the most aggressive pro-homosexual major presidential candidate in Republican Party history. He has publicly said that he supports the homosexualization of the Armed Forces through repeal of "Don't Ask Don't Tell" and would not change that repeal. He has said he strongly supports broad "gay rights" laws (including the radical Employment Non-Discrimination Act - ENDA). He said on national television that he would nominate homosexual judges.
None of this is ever mentioned in the reports or commentary covering the candidates by the mainstream media or even the "conservative" media. Even Fox News is clearly afraid of the issue. And Romney's Republican opposition — the other candidates and the groups supporting them — are also very reluctant to bring it up directly. But we're not.
MassResistance emails exposing Romney pour into to key states
The regular MassResistance emails are received by pro-family activists in all 50 states (and many foreign countries). And this year, starting before the Iowa Caucuses, we've been contacted and asked if there was an email that activists could forward to their friends and others in the state with primaries, regarding the pro-homosexual information on Romney that's been basically silenced everywhere else. In late December we put one together, which has been improved over the weeks.
It started out relatively small. But things got big during the Jan. 21 South Carolina primary. Various pro-family activists there had made sure it got sent to several thousand people, pro-family activists and GOP activists. And from there by all accounts it went "viral" and was just about everywhere in South Carolina in the days before the primary. (We even got a call from CNN asking about it.) We were told by activists that they felt the email "made a big difference." (Gingrich ended up winning that race over Romney.)
Activists also worked hard get the MassResistance email sent far and wide in New Hampshire, Colorado, Missouri, Arizona, Florida and other primary states.
Escalates to huge email blasts
Then things really escalated. Just before the Michigan primary, it got the attention of a group that got it sent to over 750,000 voters in Michigan the day before the primary there.
The day before the Ohio Primary, another group got the email sent to over a million voters in Ohio! And the feedback has been very positive. Will it go into more states? We're waiting to hear!
The day before Super Tuesday: Robo-call blankets Ohio!
The "big hits" were the massive robo-calls.
During the week before "Super Tuesday" on March 6, a group called Jews and Christians Together which supports Rick Santorum felt it was critical to get the information out on Romney's record, and that a "robo-call" would be most effective. So they asked Brian Camenker of MassResistance to be a part of it, along with Christian pro-family activist Darcy Brandon. (The group's founder, Dr. Gary Cass, is also a great pro-family activist.)
Ohio was the big state they decided to do. Romney had been massively outspending everyone there by at least 5-1 and had been organizing there for months. Santorum was very strong in the polls but Romney's share was getting bigger each day. It had to be a message that stood out — that people wouldn't forget easily.
So the day before the "Super Tuesday" vote these phone calls went out to voters across Ohio — to both Republicans and Democrats. (They were eligible to vote in either primary.)
Here's the phone message they heard across Ohio:
"Hi, my name is Brian Camenker; I'm a Jew from Massachusetts.
It was about a minute long, but by all accounts very effective. It's certainly not your average political robo-call, by any means!
Reaction from "both directions"
After the calls went out, Christians and Jews Together also put out a press release about the it, which got the word about the powerful robo-call out beyond Ohio.
It got around the country. On Tuesday morning during "drive time," Brian Camenker MassResistance was interviewed on KSEV radio in Houston by conservative talk host Sam Malone about it. Needless to say it was a fun interview! (They're hoping we do the call in Texas!)
Then later that morning the Bott Radio Network, which has 94 Christian stations across the Midwest, South, and Southwest, called the MassResistance office. They found this so exciting that the Chairman of the Board, Dick Bott, personally interviewed Brian Camenker, and the show was broadcast over all their stations.

But in addition, the robo-call caught the attention of the homosexual "community." Suffice to say, they weren't pleased. In blogs and postings across the Internet, they viciously attacked us — as they usually do when challenged — in profane, virulent, and disgusting terms (which we won't link here).
When the polls closed in the Ohio primary Rick Santorum barely lost to Mitt Romney. It was much closer than people predicted despite the enormous difference in resources. Did we help close the gap? We hope so.
Next stop: Calls across Alabama and Mississippi!
The Super Tuesday calls were considered so effective they were done across Alabama and Mississippi the following Monday, March 12, to inform voterers for Tuesday's primary in those states!
Critical information for pro-family voters
How effective is MassResistance's information? We know this much: Most voters just hear the commercials and read the paper, and would have had no idea about these critical issues.
