Why would anyone even think about voting for Ron Paul?
Does anyone even doubt that Ron Paul is going to win Iowa? His nasty little bots, who lie, cheat, and steal their way through straw polls will see to that. The conservative media, lead by FOX and Murdock’s libertarian bunch are determined to destroy the GOP. There is no other logical explanation.
Ron Paul is a fake. He is anti-Semitic and hangs out with some incredibly nasty people. He has his own white supremacist plant, Jack Hunter, at the Daily Caller. Hunter has a piece about Newt and the Constitution. The whole point here is that Ron Paul is being very very good this time around, not playing with his little white supremacist friends. He’s letting Jack Hunter do that for him.
Why would anyone vote for someone who was a frequent guest with Alex Jones?
Why would anyone vote for someone who was endorsed by Michael Savage?
Jack Hunter is Ron Paul “official” blogger. He’s appeared on the Political Cesspool with James Edwards, the neo-Nazi host. He’s done the CofCC thing. For some strange reason, even though he is a proven crack-pot who hangs with the nastiest of white supremacists, pubs like American Spectator and Daily Caller give him credibility. I guess it’s a Ron Paul thing. If they were to question who Hunter is, they must question who Ron Paul is. And – that’s not a nice thing to do today – while he’s riding high.
Hunter writes for the white supremacist publication of the National Policy Institute.
“...The National Policy Institute opened its Washington D.C. September conference with a direct invocation of Enoch Powell’s infamous Rivers of Blood speech. Using video of recent riots in England with tape of Powell’s 1968 speech, Richard Spencer, NPI’s executive director, talked of the catastrophe that Latin, Asian and African immigrants have brought the white race. It is an avenue of thought that is well-trod in white nationalist circles. Nevertheless, the new prominence of National Policy Institute (NPI) is one more blot in a changing white nationalist landscape.
Founded in 2005, by William Regnery II, a member of a wealthy conservative publishing family, its goal was “to elevate the consciousness of whites, ensure our biological and cultural continuity, and protect our civil rights.” It published several so-called studies, including: “The Costs and Benefits of Mass Deportation,” “Conservatives and Race,” “The Wealth and IQ of Nations,” and “Uhuru for South Africa.” It official office is in Augusta, Georgia, according to IRS documents.
Regnery II was looking for a way to create an intellectual power behind his white nationalist politics. “Within the first or secondhand memories of people in this room, the white race may go from master of the universe to an anthropological curiosity,” he once warned. Before NPI, he had founded the Charles Martel Society, publisher of racist and anti-Semitic journal, The Occidental Quarterly. The think tank and the quarterly journal became two-sides of a single coin. The NPI boards tie it to a number of other white nationalist enterprises, including the Council of Conservative Citizens.
Less than 75 people attended the September conference, which was held in Washington D.C. at the International Trade Center. Speakers included Atlanta attorney Sam Dickson, who 20 years ago ushered John Tyndall around the South. Jared Taylor from American Renaissance took his turn at the platform. American Renaissance has had trouble of late finding a venue that would not cancel at the last minute, and its position may be slipping as the think tank most entwined with the Council of Conservative Citizens. And the Enoch Powell reference was made by Richard Spencer, the NPI executive director.
Spencer is one the new generation of white nationalists. He graduated university in 2001, joined Pat Buchanan’s American Conservative magazine and left after three years, moving closer to white nationalism. He established his own AlternativeRight.com, “an online magazine of radical traditionalism” under the financial umbrella of the VDARE foundation. Derek Turner is one of the sites contributing editors. And then to NPI….”
NPI’s national conference this year reads like a who’s who of white supremacists. Note, Michelle Malkin writes for Peter Brimelow.
According to Don Surber, Ron Paul is despicable. Yep, that works for me! He is just that, along with dishonest, racist, bigoted, anti-Semitic, and is not above voting against the good of the nation to protect his gold mining stocks. Surber wrote:
“…But even if I agreed with him, I would think of Ron Paul as a despicable human being because of this, which he said to supporters, according to CBS: “Just think of what happened after 9/11. Immediately before there was any assessment there was glee in the administration because now we can invade Iraq.”
He is lucky we outlawed dueling, because I am pretty sure that given the opportunity, Dick Cheney would indeed issue such a challenge….”
These people are a menace to the civilized world. They lie about being “conservative” Republicans when they are nothing, absolutely NOTHING but libertarians who can’t get elected as libertarians. I suspect Dr. Demento is attempting to push the GOP into a brokered convention. We all know on the precinct level, his people have been slithering their way into the county apparatus, registering as Republicans, showing up to vote, to work, basically lying about who they are. If the convention goes brokered, he may be in the best position of all the candidates. If he runs third party, he will help to re-elect Obama. His mining stocks, will though, gain value.
There are those who say Rand Paul’s editorial against Newt is damning, but they tend to forget the fact that Rand’s daddy is running against Newt. Don’t expect anything honest out of these people. I get a kick out of their worship of money and the making of money. As long is it isn’t Newt.
“…One group of Gingrich’s also took in nearly $40 million promoting big-government ideas, such as the individual mandate. His lobbying and promotion of the housing crisis and the health care mandate have helped to make him a wealthy man, but they have also put him outside the conservative mainstream on most issues….”
Ron Paul has found religion.
“…During his years in public office, Paul branded himself more as a “constitutional conservative” than a crusader against gay marriage and abortion. Most political observers know him more for his youthful fan base of passionate and, occasionally, rowdy supporters and his earnest defense of drug legalization. But the latest Iowa Poll, conducted for the Des Moines Register at the end of November, found that 17 percent of likely Republican caucusgoers said they thought Paul was “the most socially conservative” candidate in the race, second only to Michele Bachmann with 27 percent. (The margin of error was plus or minus 4.9 percentage points.)
Only 1 in 10 likely caucusgoers in the poll said Newt Gingrich was the most socially conservative candidate, and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney fared even worse with just 8 percent. The same poll found that 64 percent of Iowa’s likely voters considered themselves to be “very” or “mostly” conservative on gay marriage and abortion. In June, a survey conducted by the same group found that 58 percent of likely caucusgoers said a candidate’s support for civil unions for gay and lesbian couples would be considered a “deal killer.”
Paul sides with social conservatives on most issues: He believes that marriage should be defined as being between only one man and one woman and he does not think the federal government should guarantee women the right to have an abortion, a position influenced by his decades as an obstetrician who delivered thousands of babies. In public speeches, Paul often articulates a biblical foundation for his economic policies, framing capitalism as the moral giant among all other economic systems.
Prominent religious conservatives in Iowa, however, object that Paul does not apply his beliefs at the national level. Paul does not support a constitutional amendment to ban abortion, and he opposes a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage. He thinks both issues should be left up to the states.
“I don’t want the federal government dictating marriage definitions nor a position on right to life,” Paul said in March during an event at the University of Iowa. “It should be done locally. It’ll be imperfect, probably, because every state won’t be the same, but what is really bad is when you allow the federal government to define marriage and put the pressure and make the states follow those laws.”…”
“…“I think extremists have taken over,” the Texas Republican said, referring to neoconservatives in the government. “They’re the ones that run the foreign policy and that convinced us as a country to go along with all these wars.”
Former Bush-era White House spokesman Ari Fleischer quickly took to Twitter to respond. “The man is nuts,” he wrote.
At a CNN/tea party debate the day after the anniversary of 9/11, Paul asserted that al Qaeda was responding to U.S. foreign policy.
“Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda have been explicit, and they wrote and said that we attacked because you had bases on our holy lands in Saudi Arabia, you do not give Palestinians a fair treatment,” Paul said before being interrupted by boos from the tea party crowd. “I didn’t say that, I’m just trying to get you to understand what the motive was behind the bombings.”
He later clarified to CBS host Bob Schieffer that he wasn’t blaming Americans for the attacks.
“America is you and I. We didn’t cause it. The average American didn’t cause it. [But] if you have a flawed policy, it may influence it.”…”
