W.Va. Gov. Campaign Ad By Harry Bertram Stirs Controversy

According to WTOV.com Channel 9 news:

Independent candidate for W.Va. Governor Harry Bertram has released a campaign ad that focuses on discrimination of White Americans.

The American Third Position Party candidate said he has a list of stances on different issues.

“It’s basically a conservative American first party and it means putting the interest of Americans first as far as trade agreements and anything else,” said Bertram.

But in his ad he called himself the “voice for white American issues,” so NEWS9 asked him about that stance.

“We’re against affirmative action and against illegal aliens coming into this country and they’re displacing white workers and eventually the white population,” said Bertram.

Still he followed up, adding that he wanted to do right by all American people.

Voters in West Virginia said that is not what they took away from the ad.

“In my opinion I see him putting his race first,” said Keith Wesley.

Wesley added, “I can’t believe that, this day and age it’s running like that.”

Others said Bertram’s view did not make sense.

“I don’t think that in West Virginia especially, illegal immigrants are at the top of our priority list on issues,” said Jamie Braunlich.

Bertram is from Tiltonsville, Oh and according to his website, he is a self described working-class conservative.

He said he wanted to reach out to those in the northern panhandle.

But NEWS9 questioned whether he thought he would lose votes with his approach.

“Well it will generate interest but, then again I didn’t expect to get their support anyway, those people that are other than the white heritage,” said Bertram.

“Oh to me he is bringing it back years. We’re trying to go forward and to me he is going backwards,” said Wesley.

The ad will air Tuesday on WTOV9. Although it is controversial, it falls under a federal statute and WTOV9 can not deny the paid advertisement snce he is a legally qualified candidate and his opponents ads have already aired on WTOV9.

However, WTOV did not point out that 95% of African-Americans voted for Obama because of his skin color.

We have the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC), the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus (CAPAC), Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute (CHCI), but heaven forbid a party or “Caucus” advocating for those interests and issues that affect White Americans!

For example the CHCI website states, “The Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute (CHCI) is one of the leading Hispanic non-profit and non-partisan 501(c) (3) organizations in the country. CHCI was established in 1978 to help increase opportunities for Hispanics to participate in and contribute to the American policy making process.”

    By the way how many votes did Harry receive when he ran for school board in West Virginia (Monongolia School Board)?

    With every election he should keep trying to increase the number of votes he gets and keep working the state with the A3P message, the same for all other A3P candidates in different state.

    The more people run the better, it would be good if in 2012 more A3P candidates would run alongside Harry for other positions.

    • American3P says:

      I will find out how Harry did in the school board election.

      We plan to increase local activism in other states and have members run for office in those states!

  2. sonicwhip says:

    Though Harry didn't win, this party shows signs of rising fast, he tallied 1,112 votes up from 296 that the New Hampshire candidate received!

    • American3P says:

      The W.Va. Democrats and Republicans dominated the election receiving 97% of the vote. The remaining 3% was received by the three independent candidates including Harry. In several counties, Harry received more votes than the other two independent candidates.

    • American3P says:

      Thank you for that information! You are right!

  3. JamesinUSA says:

    The prevailing attitude of Harry's critics is "HOW DARE YOU THINK IN TERMS OF RACE!" And yet these same people seem completely oblivious to the fact that the politics of non-whites in this country is all about their racial identity, and what they can do for their own people. Most of those attracted to the A3P presently constitute a silent majority, but they can't afford to be silent much longer if white Americans are expected to compete against other races who are putting their people first,.. often at our expense. If people are afraid to attend rallies or speak out publicly at this particular time, they can at least help the A3P by joining as members, contributing as supporters, and by voting for A3P candidates.

  4. Turn Out says:

    A3P can never become a successful counterpart to other European national movements until it is willing express itself to the people it is trying to reach. This is a civil rights issue and not a "racist issues", despite the media trying to portray it in those terms.

    The A3P is not just willing to represent whites, but advocate for all Americans, and all people can join it's ranks as long as they're willing to address racism against whites, and cherish European-America's traditions. That should be a stated principle. Not just that, but the party is open to all white-Americans, and not just the far-right, and further, you can be white and liberal and support enviornmentalism, and civil rights for whites. This is not between left or right, conservative or liberal, because those divides ahve nothing to do with the values the A3P is trying to promote.

  5. Steve T says:

    Good for Bertram. We need to grow our party and have chapters everywhere. I'm in Long Beach,CA

    Steve T.

  6. Turn out says:

    It was good to hear that there has been plenty of new people interested in joining the party in WV, as Bertram has stated a week ago, but, these results prove that the A3P's tactics are ineffective, the A3P activist and message are obviously not spreading across WV.

    Some kind of strategy has to be developed by each A3P chapter to gain new voters to the party. The ads, the message, the way the party reaches people has to be broader than simply "conservative". A3p has to find ways to reach as many people as possible, even if it means leafleting or going house to house to introduce yourselves to as many people as possible, even if it means attending as many festivals, events, speaking engagments as possible, and organzing your own events in areas where there is little support to bring attention to the party.

  7. Bobby D. says:

    Give em hell Harry!

  8. Election results are now being posted on the MetroNews website.

  9. sonicwhip says:

    Even if Harry doesn't win does he need to get a certain percentage of votes to get A3P established as an official party in West Virginia?

  10. Crystal says:

    “In my opinion I see him putting his race first,” said Keith Wesley.

    Wesley added, “I can’t believe that, this day and age it’s running like that.”

    Obviously, Mr. Wesley has never heard of La Raza or the NAACP.

    I am guessing Mr. Wesley believes that Whites and only Whites have no right to fight for their race.
