SENATOR HOLT RESPONDS TO ALLEGATIONS FROM OPPOSITION REGARDING CAMPAIGN AMBULANCE FLASHING LIGHTS
SPRINGDALE, Arkansas — U.S. Senate Republican frontrunner Jim Holt is responding to opposition about an alleged violation of a law regarding his campaign’s latest symbol of conservative expression. Holt met with press on Monday at the Arkansas State Capitol in Little Rock to unveil what he has dubbed as, “America’s Ambulance.”
Holt introduced the 2004 Ford F450 former emergency ambulance that several Holt supporters and volunteers have modified to read “ObamaCare Repeal Unit” in bold print on the face along with phrases like “Stop The Barackracy” and “The Cure for Obama’s Hope & Change.” In addition, America’s Ambulance touts a caricature of President Obama with a Soviet hammer & sickle insignia affixed to his lapel while the other side displays a cartoon sketch of Sen. Lincoln posing alongside Sen. Harry Reid & Rep. Nancy Pelosi next to the words “Revive America: Vote Jim Holt for U.S. Senate.”
The controversy arose from a Liberal Democratic group online article that alleged that Holt may be in violation of an Arkansas statute regarding the use of flashing lights. Holt commented today, “The clash with opposition on this ambulance is not the use of flashing lights, it is the fact that we are bringing to light the corrupt and unconstitutional behaviors of Washington, and they are trying to silence us. Holt continued, “They have usurped the will of the people to enact radical legislation like National Healthcare and Government Bailouts.”
Holt stated that campaign volunteers inquired of local law enforcement regarding the use of lights previously and were informed that they were legal when not used on roadways or to impersonate emergency officials. Holt also mentioned that the vehicle lights have clear lenses and in no way can they be construed to appear like an official emergency vehicle. Holt stated, “I have the utmost respect for the men and women that serve across the Nation everyday in emergency medical services and law enforcement. Our goal with America’s Ambulance is correlating the emergency situation of our Nation – we are in a crisis and we need to elect true conservative leaders that will respond to the scene in Washington.”
Holt stated that he is having an attorney look into the statute to see whether the lighting may be a concern, and until then the lights will remain on the vehicle, and as always, not in use while driving.
“We know what their opposition is really about. It’s sad. The Liberals a.k.a. as Socialists, are pretending to be worried about a code when they are the ones who need to be put into question and arrested for putting our Constitution on life support!” Holt said. “As stated previously, but was not reported, “we haven’t transgressed anyone’s rights or liberties.
On December 16, 1773, our Founding Fathers took tea that wasn’t theirs and threw it overboard in the Boston Tea Party, and we dub them heroes. The liberals are trying to make it look as if we’re criminals when they are the traitors to our Country and our freedoms.” Holt passionately stated, “They should be ashamed, and the people of this state and Nation must reclaim our liberties and refound our Country once again.”
Holt was a former National Security Agency Watch Officer under Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton and served as a Russian Linguist during the fall of the Soviet Union. Holt stated that working in the NSA provided him with a clear view of the mistakes that Socialist leaders imposed on the people of Russia. He stated, “The current administration is cramming their liberal agenda down the throats of the people in much the same way – with no thought for the American public.” Holt also said, When you attack the leader of the most Socialist minded progressive agenda our nation has ever seen, it is bound to cause quite a stir.”
Holt continues, “We are speaking out and representing Americans who have not had a voice in Washington that represents them. With recent attacks on freedom and liberty, citizens need a leader – someone who will fight to defend their Constitutional rights.” Supporters have said they are rallying behind Holt in the race to the U.S. Senate, because of his impeccable record and integrity. Holt reiterated, “The illustration in America’s Ambulance harnesses the momentum we need to drive us through to victory in November. Then we will head for the ER — Economic Recovery.”
P.S. – “Whether someone put nails in our tires Monday night or not, we don’t know; however, we got them fixed… we’re on the road!” – Jim Holt
