The Pink Flamingo was pleased that Sarah Palin exposed herself as basically a Neocon strong on national security. Her strong stand on national security is in strange contrast to her endorsement of Rand Paul who, like his father, is a cowardly little twerp who does not believe in defending the country. He does not support our military. The Pink Flamingo keeps thinking someone is giving Sarah Palin some very bad advise.
In fact, her embrace of the whole bunch of tea party jerks could be backfiring. If so, and she is piddling with libertarians she will be burned. Losertarians have no honor nor morality. They are out for themselves. I keep telling you a battle for the heart and soul of the Tea Party movement is brewing. The mistake being made is the assumption that Tea Party freaks are conservative. If you want my personal opinion, the tea party movement is the last ride of the hippy generation.
Do not confuse them with Republicans and conservatives. If what I am finding is true, then the Losertarians are going to attempt to destroy Sarah Palin.
“…There’s trouble brewing between the Ron Paul libertarians who staged the the first modern tea party in 2007 by dumping tea into Boston Harbor, and the neocon war hawks led by Sarah Palin who are furiously trying to hijack their message.
After I appeared on MSNBC talking about Sarah Palin’s appearance at the Nashville tea party convention, several libertarians told me they were unhappy with the exchange.
I said that Sarah Palin’s hawkish message on Iran was oddly out of place in a group whose roots belong to the Ron Paul libertarians, particularly as the anti-interventionist Rand Paul is looking strong in the Kentucky Senate Senate race — and Palin just endorsed him. The woman who appeared with me representing the tea partiers disagreed with that premise, and claimed she was very much an interventionist.
My libertarian friends couldn’t imagine what she was doing on TV representing the tea parties in the first place, and thought it was a sad day when the opposition stated their position more fairly than their supposed allies….”
In another Pink Flamingo I told you so, Ron Paul is furious about the Neocon infiltration of tea parties.
“…Speaking to MSNBC host Rachel Maddow on Tuesday night, Paul first took up for the tea parties as a natural reaction of the people when they are unhappy with government. What they are not, he explained, are entirely adherent to his ideas. Paul suggested that the group only “sometimes” represents his views.
“My message is somewhat different,” he said. “The message gets somewhat diluted” with large movements of this nature.
“Everybody likes to join what looks like a popular movement, then they want to come in and influence that movement,” Paul continued.
His core issues, such as creating transparency at the Federal Reserve, recalling overseas soldiers and ending the drug war, are “not what is generally heard from the Republican party,” he said. Paul, whose son Rand is running for U.S. Senate in Kentucky, didn’t seem to flinch when Maddow asked how he feels about Sarah Palin’s recent endorsement of the younger Paul’s campaign.
“Probably wouldn’t be any different” with most Republicans, he said, emphasizing that he hopes his libertarian-leaning ideas would ultimately influence both parties, not just win over one…”
