I was trying to decide what Ron Paul and his minions remind me of and it just suddenly hit me. The militant anti-government types. The Randy Weavers, McVeigh’s, and others who would just as much like to hide in the hills waiting for the anarchy to hit and the return to "true government".
They are so far right they have almost come full circle and now support lefties ideals such as the Truther madness: (h/t Michelle Malkin)
Student: …we’ve heard that you have questioned the government’s official account.
Paul: Well, I never automatically trust anything the government does when they do an investigation because too often I think there’s an area that the government covered up, whether it’s the Kennedy assassination or whatever.
[…]Student: So I just wanted to say, you know, we’ve talked to Dennis Kucinich and he says that he’s willing to, you know, investigate it. He would advocate for a new investigation.
Paul: Into 9/11?
Student: Yeah, into 9/11. I mean, if it was Dennis Kucinich and you, there’d be congressional support. You know what I mean? So you wouldn’t be the only one.
Paul: It’d be bipartisan, too. And I’ve worked with Dennis a lot on a lot of these issues.
Student: So I mean, would you advocate for a new investigation into 9/11?
Paul: Yes, I think we have to look at the details of it.
And then the coup de grace, the endorsement of the Truther movement for Ron Paul:
Dennis Kucinich and Ron Paul: Pandering to the Crowd? Or Potential 9/11 Truth Candidates?
By Justin A. Martell and Natalya Waye
March 9th, 2007
If you Google Student Scholars for 9/11 Truth, you will no doubt stumble across many forum topics and website posts regarding their recent videos that feature 2008 Presidential Candidates Rep. Ron Paul (R – Texas) and Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D – Ohio) advocating for a new investigation into 9/11.
In response to these videos, many self proclaimed members of the 9/11 Truth Movement have said that these men are doing nothing but “pandering to the crowd” and “won’t do anything about it.” This is very disheartening, considering that these men are the only mainstream hope for 9/11 Truth. Hillary, Obama, Edwards, and Dodd have all expressed their disinterest in discussing 9/11. The fact that these men will go on the record discussing these issues with members of the truth movement should be incredibly inspiring to these arm chair critics who troll the loose change and 911 Blogger forums.
The very utterance of a call for a new investigation puts these candidate’s reputation and credibility on the line as they risk getting ripped to shreds by the abysmally ignorant opposition or the complicit media. Therefore, this negative backlash against these men is completely inappropriate and derogating. Any sensible “Truther” knows that these candidates can’t go on the television or radio and announce “9/11 WAS AN INSIDE JOB,” whether they believe it was or not.
Rep. Dennis Kucinich made it very clear in his second video with Student Scholars that he would like to come forward with a few undeniable facts about 9/11 and from there, widen the discussion in order to, in the words of Hillary Clinton, “Let the conversation begin!” In a candid conversation with the Student Scholars that took place off camera, he explained the various aspects of 9/11 that he’s already had his office looking into for quite some time. These are not the actions of a person who is not serious about this topic.
In regards to Rep. Ron Paul, he states twice in the Student Scholars video that he believes that the first 9/11 investigation was one in which there many “cover-ups.” Paul also claimed he “never automatically believes anything the government does when they do an investigation.” Additionally, he has been on the Alex Jones show several times. Ron Paul knows very well that something is very wrong with the official explanation of 9/1l. However, like Dennis Kucinich he cannot look right into our cameras and proclaim “9/11 WAS A SELF INFLICTED WOUND!” Through acknowledging the legitimacy of the 9/11 Truth Movement’s concerns, these candidates are expressing their support for our cause. This is much more than the more mainstream candidates will do. WOAH! Just got a flashback of a “Truther” being escorted out of a Hillary Clinton event by the Secret Service for quietly holding a 9/11 Truth banner.
These two men are our only hope. Think about it folks. THINK.
His minions are no better. Check the comments out on my other Ron Paul posts and read the lunacy. They organize their spam in waves, they spam polls, they basically use the tactics of the left to get their message out.
Like I said, they are so far right they’ve come full circle into crazyland.
12. Ron Paul
Texas congressman Last Ranking: 9
Just please stop e-mailing us. Thanks.
Yup, his minions just don’t know when to stop.
Check out this interview on the Alex Jones Show (a Weaver type Holocaust denier, which should be proof in itself that Ron Paul is a loon…going on a show with Alex Jones says it all) where Ron Paul states things will be better since the Democrats will be in office:
"CALLER: I want a complete, impartial, and totally independent investigation of the events of September 11, 2001 . I’m tired of this bogus garbage about terrorism. Ask Michael Meacher about how he feels about this bogus war on terrorism. Can you comment on that please?
HON. DR. RON PAUL: Well, that would be nice to have. Unfortunately, we don’t have that in place. It will be a little bit better now with the Democrats now in charge of oversight. But you know, for top level policy there’s not a whole lot of difference between the two policies so a real investigation isn’t going to happen. But I think we have to keep pushing for it. And like you and others, we see the investigations that have been done so far as more or less cover-up and no real explanation of what went on.
JACK BLOOD, GUEST HOST: I think it’s fair to say that of all the candidates out there, the one most interested in reopening the investigation and clearing the questions is Dr. Paul; and you should be commended for that.
Yup….a great Presidential candidate.
And to those Ron Paul minions who leave whiny comments like "you just don’t know Ron Paul" or "do some research, he is not a truther" all I have to say is that he associates with the truther scum, answers questions from these same types with responses that makes it seem like he agrees with them. For example, his continuing insistence that there was some big coverup with 9/11. He is a pure Randy Weaver, Timothy McVeigh, Ted Kaczynski type who wants to believe the big bad Government is responsible for everything. Stop deluding yourselves.
Do I want less government? Sure. But I also want a strong government who will act to protect this country by doing the right thing, such as invading Iraq after 9/11. Government screwed up big time for decades prior to Bush coming into office which allowed 9/11 to happen, and the reason they screwed up is because we were too isolationist. To much into the law enforcement mindset.
Things have changed and we are now winning this fight against terror.
If Ron Paul were to ever get into office (I know…stop laughing) it would be just as scary as if Hillary got into office.
