Mark Hong Claimed This Video Never Existed & Attacked Tom Beck For Saying He'd Heard A Rumor It Does

 View video here.

Mod: If you have been following the fool show over on the political vilification site Voice of Arcadia, you are probably up on this story. Mark Hong, an apparently lapsed attorney I've been told, and with an immense chip on his shoulder, has repeatedly attacked Tom Beck over the existence of the above video. Mark oddly claiming it never existed, and that Tom deviously made the whole story up in order to defeat Bob Harbicht at the polls. Something the sore loser Hong is still bitterly struggling with.

Anyway, here is an interesting email forwarded to me yesterday, written by someone who writes in both Chinese and English exceedingly well.

I just saw from the pinned-to-top post of the "Voice of Arcadia" page that "Mark Hong" is making trouble for Tom Beck about a video.

Mark Hong is accusing Tom of being dishonest, saying that Tom lied about the existence of an online Chinese language video on how to register to vote. I happened to have seen a Chinese language video on how to vote in the past city election before and I've included it here.

It was posted by "Arcadian's Rights Protection Association" (link). The narrator suggests that Harbicht & Chandler's names should be selected on the ballots. Some Chinese speaker must have seen it and told Tom about it. 

However, I suspect that due to translation inaccuracy, Tom thought it was about how to register to vote. I could be wrong. There might be another Chinese language video on how to register to vote, though I have not seen one.

Mod: Apparently Mark Hong is one of those VOA guys who thinks that anyone who didn't support Bob Harbicht this year is either racist or, if you are Asian, a "banana." A person's attitude about mansionization and community planning having something to do with their feelings about race as well.

I digress. Here is that bizarre rant from Mark Hong referred to in the email above.

My DISHONEST TOM BECK story (too many people have been asking about it): On the campaign trail, he SPREAD A RUMOR that “The Asians” in Arcadia were conspiring to win the city council election by voter fraud.

On March 11, Dishonest Tom told me and a living room of my neighbors that Arcadia City Councilman Sho Tay and “The Asians” had made a Chinese language video on how to register to vote online.

While making imaginary check marks in the air with his right hand as if he were holding a pencil, Dishonest Tom repeated over and over: “Do you know how easy it is to JUST CHECK that you’re a US Citizen? No one ever verifies it.” I believed him and when I told Helen, she believed him.

I’ve always said there’s a difference between a witness and a rat. While I would never rat on someone to get myself out of trouble, Helen and I decided we could not sit back and witness a voter fraud conspiracy that would ultimately make ALL Asians in Arcadia look bad (e.g., John Wuo). Helen and I decided to report Sho Tay and the video so I asked for evidence.

DISHONEST TOM BECK REPLIED - IN WRITING - THAT IT WAS JUST A RUMOR!

He said he would forward evidence as soon as a group had collected it; still waiting.

I have come to believe there never was a video. I asked Sho Tay, he denied it and it looked convincing to me. I discussed this issue with City Councilwoman April Verlato, it didn’t seem like she had heard of the video. And every local Asian community activist I’ve met in the last 2 months had never heard of the video before I described it.

On the other hand, Dishonest Tom Beck says he has seen the video - in writing.

Mod: Let's take a short break here, because this really is crazy talk. Just a few sentences above Hong declares that Beck said the video was a rumor, and did so in writing. Now Mark is saying Tom claimed he has seen this video, and said that in writing as well? Just saying, you can get very dizzy reading Hong's nonsense.

If he cannot produce the video or any evidence that it ever existed, in my opinion the only honorable thing to do would be to resign. I wouldn’t hold my breath.

One last thing: a lot of people strongly encouraged me to expose all this before the election. They’re upset and I understand others will be, too. I regret that I didn’t. Deeply.

Mod: Well, maybe Mark should finally pull himself together, because we now know that this video does exist and can be easily viewed on-line. It isn't just a rumor anymore. I also rather suspect that Hong always knew of its existence as well. And if I am correct about that, maybe we now start calling him Dishonest Hong?

Oh, and as far as I know LA County is still investigating election fraud in District 5.

Somebody tell him that, OK?

  1. What’s frightening is there are people in Arcadia that relied on that video to figure out how to vote. Imagine living that life?!

    1. There is nothing wrong or illegal to tell people how to vote in Chinese.

      I listened to it, the vedio speaker was not Sho Tay obviously. it sounded like a resident homemade to me.

      But there were only 19 people viewed that vedio shown on the link provided. It was posted in last month, after election?

      Something doesn't make sense now. I am Not sure the claimed ARPA site's real or fake. I have never seen that site before either.

      Some body might want to do some further investigation on it.

      Thanks.

    3. 8:02 - the statistics you are citing are from when the video was posted on YouTube, and not from all of its uses. Those are unaccounted for.

    4. The video doesn’t look legal. Has anyone reported it to the FPPC? This would be considered advertising for Harbicht and Chandler. There are no disclaimers. If this was legal, why didn’t they post it on their Facebook page for all to see?

    12. It looks amost all of views were created from this blog of people this morning. I was #19 to click it, when I opened the message, there were eight messages ahead of me published, adding time delays for publication, might be a few more people look at the vedio already. So among 19 people at 8:02am, there were at least 9 from this group.

    14. This video blatantly demonstrates the who to vote for. It is just a front or excuse to think for others
      who are incapable of thinking for themselves. Ballot instructions are already printed inside in Chinese which makes this "learning lesson" unnecessary. More cult like mind control which undermines democracy in Arcadia. Propaganda again and again- from the Anti-HPO group.
      Will definitely report it for investigation. Let's all report this from the Arcadian's Rights Protection
      Association.

    2. From VOA,

      "Happy weekend Arcadians.

      The latest news from “the Tattler “is that fearful and Dishonest Tom Beck and his supporters failed to provide the video that he claimed he had seen, in which Sho Tay teaches the non US citizens/Asians how to register to vote. In a panic, they found a video that shows how to vote on a ballot to cover up his lies and low intelligence.

      Even if you don’t understand the Chinese language you can tell that the video is NOT about how to register but about how to vote. The target audience were the registered voters who already received the ballots, definitely not any non US citizens who were not eligible to vote. More importantly, this video was apparently made and released after the 2018 ballots were mailed out to voters on March 12th, whereas Tom Beck created and spread the rumor way before that date.

      Nice try of Tom Beck and SMT. But it didn’t work. Tom Beck remains DISHONEST and he proved it once again."

I gave my email & demanded to see the video. He took it, drove off & I never received further news. This slime comes from Developer's money, muzzling the press. Sho Tay & his fascist thinking.

    This is for all the people saying "qualified" is a slur. It's not. It is what the City,
    State and ( I believe ) the federal government use to describe ANY candidate running
    for election. In order to run, you must be a citizen, a resident in the community you are representing ( remember the term (carpetbagger) and not a felon. To continue to say qualified is a racist term is beyond the pale. Please grow up and have an intelligent talk on what's going on in Arcadia. Enough with the lies and nonsense.

He published unsubstantiated hit pieces against Beck on his website and lied about who wrote them and how they got posted on his website. Tay’s lies affected an election. Beck recounted a rumor to a room of a few people and made it clear it was just a rumor. He never claimed it to be a fact and he never claimed it was Sho Tay that created the video. That was something that Hong made up. Beck never lied.

    A video cannot be searched/found since it could be unlisted or embedded in a webpage, etc..

    Sho Tay's followers/supporters have their own small core WeChat group. That's why we saw the same scary purse-snatching video in various different WeChat groups about the same time, shared by their core members before the election. Many can recognize the few core members no matter what alias they choose to use.

    Also, they encourage people to join certain WeChat groups in the name of Arcadia communities/neighborhood groups or whatever special-interests groups, but have kicked out without notice any person who posted opposing opinions or merely shared posts/articles that are against their views.

  32. This is from today's comments to the May 17 post of Mark Hong's Facebook page:

    "Justin Nelson" to "Mark Hong": I'm slowly catching up on all the controversy. My comment does not come from a political motivation, but a simple observation of a friend. You took the time to invite members of the community to meet Tom Beck. I was one of them. Although I could not attend, it is clear that you were giving people an opportunity to meet the candidate. I think it is important to listen to someone who has spent time with the candidate. If you observed a dishonest behavior, it is important that the public is willing to listen. I am the first to say that I do not believe in facebook memes and gifs as a productive means to make progress. However, if someone observes a dishonest behavior, we need to listen to it. If not, we will continue to be divided. The issue is deeper than an election. It is a willingness for everyone to listen and respect the other.

    "Justin Nelson" to "Mark Hong", you did the hard work that we all should do in order to know our elected officials. Regardless of personal opinion, I feel that it requires people to consider your perspective.
