This is a Tim Blog (Dec 19, 2018):
I write to you today as a Citizen and Veteran who served to protect our liberties under the Constitution, one of which is - free speech, That said, some free speech warrants rebuttal and/or repercussion.
My topic is one which I am sure you are aware of, as it is occurring in your district and has received the attention of area news media articles. The Republican club of Tarrant County lead by Darl Easton, has a few members who seem to be fueled by outside antagonists such as Sara Legvold, a Republican who describes herself as a "pissed off conservative patriot," (according to the Star Telegram article on this subject)( https://www.star-telegram.com/news/state/texas/article221307605.html) and supported by very young inexperienced people of the Carroll ISD in their recent Face Book post.
I have read some of the concerns that Mr. Shafi is Muslim, therefore, supports Shari law. There are many religions that have an "orthodox" view of their religion, but there are many who claim to be a member of that religion who do not partake in that extreme.
The man has accepted and promoted the beliefs of your/our country, been accepted by members of your community as noted by his elected position to the South Lake city council and his dedication to the Republican Party by serving on the State Republican Party Convention on the Rules Committee for many years. I recently was chosen to represent SD 22 at the 2018 Republican convention serving on the Legislative Priorities Committee.
I submit to you Sir, that if you do not speak out against their malicious religious rhetoric, you will be condoning their message. I am sure that your position on the House of Representatives Ethics Committee would not allow any such malicious conduct in the House.
The meeting for this club resolution is expected to take place on Jan 10th,2019 at the Republican Headquarters, 7524 Mosier View Court, Suite 230 / Fort Worth.
A Concerned Citizen
Having no response from the Casey or the publication I wrote to WBAP, Rick Roberts. Two days later I was listing to Cris Salsaida 's talk show (Dec 7, 18 around 10;am) as he was interviewing Dr. Shafi on this subject. I was elated to think that maybe my email to the station prompted them to follow up on a very important issue. A few hours later I heard the WBAP news reporting the story.
The following is what I sent to the radio station:
Thinking that this was a step forward but wondering where our national republican committee chairman, the Party's representative was on this issue I wrote the following on Dec 7, 18 to James Dickey:
This email is directed to James Dickey.
Shortly thereafter I found that the Party had taken an offensive position on admonishing those who were standing against the principles, our founding covenants that define our way of life.
