Ron Paul Supporter Accuses Beck of Shilling for Israel, Defends Bin Laden, Ahmadinejad
The Blaze ^

Posted on 01/08/2012 4:37:11 PM PST by mnehring

During his Friday morning radio broadcast, Glenn Beck fielded calls from Ron Paul supporters, with each caller progressively reaching new depths of radicalism.

The initial phone-in went pretty well, coming from what Glenn called a rational Paul supporter. Feeling comfortable, Glenn went on to the next caller, a man named Tom from Florida, but it didn’t take long for the “passion,” and, conspiracy theories to emerge. Tom first accused Glenn of being on the payroll of the pro-Israel lobby. Then, while defending Paul’s foreign policy, the caller declared that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, along with Osama bin Laden, were not at all crazy.

“Hey, Glenn, how are you?” opened the caller. “I’m definitely a Ron Paul supporter, and I definitely believe that your interests for America are put after Israel’s interests, and you’re operating on behalf of Israel and not America.”

“I believe you took your 30 pieces of silver for Israel over America,” he continued.

After accusing Glenn of shilling for Israel, the caller went on to say that bin Laden was justified in his actions because Americans have “bombed his people and…killed his women and children with bombs and airplanes.”

Glenn then sarcastically asked the caller: “Osama Bin Laden and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, they’re not crazy?” To which the caller replied, “no,” pressing, “What makes Ahmadinejad crazy? What makes him crazy?”

Of course, there wasn’t much to the call after that. Glenn thanked the caller and joked that he was doing a real “service” to Ron Paul by spouting such rhetoric.

“This guy’s crazy, I believe uneducated, a conspiracy theorist, and a bigot,” concluded Glenn.

Considering the controversial views of some of his supporters, is Paul’s candidacy for President served well by the more radical elements of his base?

And Paul spews the same thing as much as possible that the caller spewed on Beck’s show.
Supporters support candidates for a reason the candidate they align themselves with mirrors what is important to them, it’s that simple.

It’s becoming increasingly difficult to differentiate Ron Paul and his supporters from Lyndon LaRouche and his. Nutbars, all of them.

Apparently the marching orders have been issued and the Nutball Brigade is manning the phone banks. The only “sane” Ru Paul caller was twisting himself into a pretzel, excusing the years of newsletters that were published in Paul’s name.

I made this graphic as a humorous response to those who say they agree with Ron Paul on issues such as a smaller government, because it's a tiny bit of Ron Paul. Even if he's right on that issue it's like a stopped clock - right twice a day. Earlier, I had been posting clippings from his newsletters. If you read the blurbs in the column on the right they seem ridiculous. Then follow the asterisk to the bottom. Yes. At least twenty-three of the issues on the right-hand column come from Ron Paul newsletters (he went on record on 12/29, saying that there were only "eight or ten bad sentences" in all of his newsletters) or Ron Paul speeches:

Nutbars? Yes. And Nutpiecharts.

Hmmmmm, I am beginning to feel the same way about Glenn with his over the top bashing of Newt. I hardly listen to Glenn anymore and of course missed the Friday show.

Paul has been in a perfect position to do the things he’s been claiming as reasons to vote for him. He has had 620 bills, only 4 of which have been voted upon (he’s even voted against his own proposals many times), and only 1 has ever been passed into law.

At least the nutball won’t run for re-election to congress adn will finally be purged as a candidate after this election.

Well, in support of Paul, even Paul knows Paul is nuts. I won't link it here but I posted a vanity about what I stumbled upon when Googling for the bumper sticker used in the graphic above. I found myself in a bad place on the Internet. Clicked on 'images' and was suddenly on the Stormfront blog. Where they were pitching Paul bumper stickers. And there was a poll on Presidential candidates. Guess who won overwhelmingly?

The $ 10,000 question is:


Is one of Dr. Winkie's cult-followers going to something VIOLENT in this campaign cycle ?


My bet is: "yes"

The other thing I have noticed is that Ru Paul rallies are full of the same trash as the "occupy" protests.

Both seem to be backed by Soros-funded communists.

I'm glad you said that because I was beginning to think I'm the only one who noticed the similarities to the LaRouche cult.

This comparison of supporting the USA or Israel is not even a rational discussion for me. I support the USA 100%. If after 100%, I have anything left over I’ll use it to support our allies wherever they might be.
