WKRC Channel 12 has one of the media stories. During the week ending June 7th, the Cincinnati Unit distributed 450 copies of a flyer throughout Florence decrying the malevolent influence of immigrants in the local area. The flyers were attached to vehicles parked in the area in order to avoid creating a litter problem. The flyers focused on an assault and robbery of a White man at a laundromat by three African immigrants, two of them Somali and the other a Kenyan, back on May 22nd; the Cincinnati Unit is criticizing police and claims the growing number of business signs in Spanish is cause for alarm. Ransdell himself appears briefly in this WKRC news video:

WCPO Channel 9 has the other story, and published excerpts from the flyer. Ransdell said that he expects to distribute up to 450 more flyers in preparation for a meeting at the Boone County Public Library in Union, Kentucky on Monday June 11th at 7:00 P.M. The meeting is not intended to be a rally, but an opportunity to gauge community feelings and share ideas. Ransdell also says at some point he hopes to organize protests outside some of the businesses that cater to immigrants. One of the locals who expressed opposition to the flyers, Rachel Rentschler, says she just might show up and let them know how she feels. And if she does, she'll find that Robert Ransdell is not a shaven-headed tattooed circus freak, but an ordinary White man who is well-dressed, well-spoken, and indistinguishable from a typical city councilman.
By the way, Carrie Herrmann, Boone County Library’s Public Service Coordinator, vigorously defends the right of the National Alliance unit to use its meeting room. "Anyone with a Boone County Public Library card who is in what we call good standing, means that they do not owe any fines, that they have no overdue items, can book one of our meeting rooms. We are open to everyone no matter your beliefs, no matter your race, your creed. We are just open to everyone", Herrmann said.
The Cincinnati Enquirer also picked up the story, and listed other recent examples of the National Alliance's local activism. In 2009, the National Alliance participated in Kentucky’s Adopt-A-Highway program. The state Transportation Cabinet announced plans to terminate the group’s participation but reversed that decision when it appeared a potential legal battle would be decided in favor of the National Alliance. Later that same year, Northern Kentucky University pulled an advertisement for Resistance Records, an arm of the National Alliance, from its student newspaper amid complaints from readers. And in May of this year, Ransdell offered a $1,000 reward to anyone who could prove Nobel Laureate Elie Wiesel did not have a Holocaust tattoo (no one has yet claimed the reward). Wiesel, a prominent Holocaust marketer, spoke to a group at Xavier University on May 6th.
In closing, Robert Ransdell posted some final thoughts on Natallnews, and complained that WCPO's coverage was biased:
You will note that nowhere in the flyer does it even mention White people but they still jump on it as racist. It seems like even identifying non-White immigrant crime when it happens is now considered racist. They are appalled by the use of the word "thug", the reporter that interviewed Robert made that clear during their discussion, yes they are more concerned with what you call non-White criminals it seems than the crimes they commit and the victims they leave in their wake. White nationalist - never think you are on the wrong side of good and evil.
