Once upon a time the GOP soundly renounced David Duke. Too bad those days are over.
Unfortunately The Pink Flamingo can no longer support either Sarah Palin or Jim DeMint. I will support them when they renounce Rand Paul and demand he return the money he took from white supremacists. I do not understand how Sarah Palin, who claims to be so very pro-Israel and supports our military can endorse someone like Rand Paul who is, according to Pat Buchanan, one of them. He does not support Israel. He is against the “military industrial complex”, does not believe in fighting the war on terror, and wants to bring our troops home from Afghanistan and Iraq – immediately.
I will put money on the Tea Party “patriots” demanding that Rand Paul run for POTUS in 2012. I am angry and disgusted. I am also heart-sick.
If the far right is such a huge fan of Dick Cheney, why did they ignore what he said about Rand Paul:
“…Vice President Cheney’s circle were desperately warning conservatives and Republicans about “Rand Paul’s troubling and dangerous views on foreign policy.” Cheney issued his first 2010 endorsement to Trey Grayson a week later. David Frum and other defenders of the Bush-Cheney foreign policy piled on. Mitch McConnell pulled out all the stops. Grayson ran an ad featuring the clash between Giuliani and Ron Paul over the causes of 9/11, and Rudy endorsed Grayson. And Rand Paul appears to be beating Grayson by 25 points. That’s a real poke in the eye to the Republican establishment and the neocons in the Cheney orbit….”
An ill wind is blowing through Kentucky as those alleged “patriots” those tea party LIBERTARIANS just lost a Republican Senate seat by nominating Rand Paul, with all his glorious ties to very nasty individuals, including Stormfront. How much money did Rand Paul take from a Stormfront money-bomb that helped his initial candidacy? How much money did white supremacists donate to his campaign? After all, Pat Buchanan thinks he is the great savior of the GOP.
“…He has to walk a fine line. What made his father the enemy of the party establishment were his non-interventionist foreign policy and civil libertarian positions. Last year in a radio interview with Antiwar.com, the son came out against torture and for a withdrawal from Iraq.
Paul’s success has upset the neo-cons. Politico recently reported: “Recognizing the threat, a well-connected former aide to Vice President Dick Cheney convened a conference call last week between Grayson and a group of leading national security conservatives to sound the alarm about Paul. On foreign policy, [global war on terror], Gitmo, Afghanistan, Rand Paul is NOT one of us,” Cesar Conda wrote in an e-mail to figures such as Liz Cheney, William Kristol, Robert Kagan, Dan Senor and Marc Thiessen. With an attached memo on Paul’s noninterventionist positions, Conda concluded: “It is our hope that you can help us get the word out about Rand Paul’s troubling and dangerous views on foreign policy.”
Also, it’s revealed that the “pro-Israel community” is watching this race very closely. A week after the above report, Conda showed up on National Review’s blog The Corner to tell us that the former Vice President had endorsed Grayson….”
Will Rand Paul return the money Stormfront raised for him? Then again his father never returned money raised for him by Neo-Nazis! (H/T True Slant)
Richard Viguerie is demanding that Mitch McConnell step down as the Senate Minority Leader. Viguerie attempted a take-over of the Losertarian Party in 2008 in order to push Bob Barr.
“…“If we had a parliamentary system of government, McConnell would be expected to resign.
“The elections results are a massive repudiation of McConnell and the Republican congressional leadership, which aggressively supported Grayson. Coming on the heels of Senator Robert Bennett’s defeat in Utah and the Republican Senatorial Committee’s previous support for Charlie Crist in Florida, it is clear that many Washington, D.C. GOP leaders are enormously out of touch with the base of the Republican Party, grassroots conservatives.
“The new conservatives who are being elected this year are different from the establishment types who went along with the big government policies of George W. Bush, Tom DeLay, Bill Frist, and others. “The 2010 elections will be a tsunami of Biblical proportions. The voters are angry and frightened at the mess that politicians, as well as the leaders of most of America’s major institutions, have made of our country. “Recent election defeats of establishment Republicans will cause congressional Republicans to become more outspoken in their opposition to President Obama’s nominees and legislative agenda. Few, if any, Republicans will risk being seen as working with Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and other Democrats.” …”
There are very few Republicans The Pink Flamingo refuses to support. Rand Paul is one of them. There is a reason for this. Rand Paul does NOT believe in supporting our country. He does not believe in fighting the war on terror. He wants to remove our troops from the War on Terror.
Libertarians are NOT conservative.
If a picture is worth a thousand words – this one says a heck of a lot – and it isn’t good.
I think I am more upset tonight over the nomination of Rand Paul than Barack Obama’s win in 2008.
