‘King Paul’ Coble video re-released with support of Republicans against Amendment One

Eric Preston has re-released his video on Wake County Commission Chairman Paul Coble, which I featured earlier this week in my post, “Video: ‘King Paul’ Coble’s politics of division.”

The video is below, along with a transcript of his letter at the opening.

Dear viewer,

A couple of days ago I released the original version of this video with a quote from me at the beginning that incorrectly implied that all North Carolina Republicans agreed with GOP politicians like Wake County Commission Chairman Paul Coble.

In the last 48 hours the video received over 1,300 views, and I received many emails and comments from Republicans who wanted to make it clear that they do not associate themselves with the likes of Chairman Coble, his methods, manners or agendas.

These same respectable Republicans also told me, in no uncertain terms, that they are AGAINST the proposed North Carolina state Constitutional Amendment and will be voting as such on May 8th, 2012.

It is to these people that I extend my most humble apologies and dedicate this re-release with a more appropriate opening quote.

“In one divisive act, not only has Paul Coble embarrassed both Republicans and Democrats, but insulted all North Carolina citizens as well.” — Eric Preston, writer, director

    I am a professor at UNC Charlotte with an expertise in Civic and Community Engagement a co-teaching a course called Theatre Collaborations. In this course, students explore a current issue in the local community through interviewing people and then create a play based on that issue. Our issue this year is Amendment One: The Defense of Marriage Act.

    Our students will be …interviewing various people with many points of view on this issue. Do you have an interesting perspective or story to tell regarding true love, marriage and commitment? You will be helping a particular student with her or his interview project for the semester. Students are using interview theatre techniques to create characters based on real people. To do this, the student will ask you a series of four open-ended questions, and you will engage in conversation about the questions. The interview will be audio taped with your verbal permission. You have the right to stop the interview at any point or to refuse to answer any of the questions. You also have the right to choose an identifier other than your name, to ask that certain sections or the entire interview not be used, and to change any of the names in the interview.

    The student will then choose a section of the interview to transcribe, and the transcription will become the script for a monologue. The student will perform the transcript verbatim, using your words and speech patterns to create a character. There will be a public performance of this monologue.

    The student will review more about the procedure at the top of the interview. The interview will take less than 30 minutes.

    This is a very sincere project that wants to fairly represent all points of view and have our students learn from multiple perspectives. Please consider participating in an interview by allowing one of our students to interview you.

    Please let me know if this is something that you would consider please contact me via facebook or email. I would be happy to answer any questions about the class or the student interviews.

    Thank you – Dr. Susan Harden, sharden@uncc.edu
