Skip to comments.Ron Paul Goes Full Metal Truther
Posted on 12/10/2011 3:53:36 PM PST by mnehring
Ive been waiting for quite a while for Ron Paul to just come out and admit hes a 9/11 truther. Frankly, I thought it would happen a long time before now. It has taken so long, in fact, that I had started to doubt whether he would ever do it. However, I guess his Iowa polling numbers must have him feeling his oats, because he finally let slip (apologies to those who cannot view the video in IE, we are working to fix the technical issue. Original video may be found here):
And its 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. So the war drums beat
Perfect. Just great. Remember that the less crazy truthers out there dont get bogged down in scientific nonsense like fire cant melt steel. They dont necessarily believe that the Bush administration actually put bombs in the WTC to help it come down (although theyre not precisely ruling it out). What they DO believe is that the U.S. government was warned by the Israelis/Saudis/French/whoever that the attacks were coming and deliberately ignored it because they wanted 9/11 to happen so they could go to war in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Ron Paul has now moved from saying that 9/11 was our fault (which was despicable enough) to now saying that its something our government actually wanted to happen. Put this up there with Ron Pauls belief that Southeast Asia got much better after we left Vietnam (a viewpoint doubtless shared by millions of massacred Southeast Asians but hey, at least we trade with Vietnam now) on the all time list of Ron Pauls contemptible and publicly-expressed beliefs. Add to this the fact that Ron Paul is a liar and a hypocrite on spending, who has built a career larding up appropriations bills with pork for his home district and then casting meaningless votes against their final passage, and I have to confess that I dont really see the appeal of Ron Paul to Iowa voters. Well, the Republican ones, at least.
This, and Rand Paul’s childish and deliberately misleading rant about Newt this week have taken the Paul family down several notches in my book (and I’ve always liked Rand and grudgingly respected Ron).
They have proven themselves just as cynical and just as willing to mislead and obfuscate and play to the lesser instincts of some voters as any other damned politician in Washington. Very disappointing, because there is a lot of good in what their main message is.
Ron Paul would have us paying the jizyah to Tehran.
Channeling his inner Larouche?
He’s not the nice, old patriotic grandfather many think he is.
100% agree with all views stated.
Ron Paul! Get LOST! We don’t need or want you; YOU JERK!
The crazy uncle in the attic is going to start objecting to being compared to Ron Paul.
Why isn’t he asking why the US Taxpayers had to pay out billion$ to the 3000 families involved in 9/11. If your neighbor dies tomorrow will you pay his house off? Didn’t think so, but we did for those people and a lot more. WHY?
How any sane person could consider Paul presidential material is way beyond me.
F U R P!
His “followers” are either NO DIFFERENT or smart like a rock! The first description fits those I have known, with a bit of the second thrown in for good measure.
I for one think Free Republic is long overdue for a Paul Purge (as was done with the Rudyites). The Paulbots are increasingly spamming threads as we near the Iowa caucuses, stifling a real discussion of the issues.
Ron Paul has now moved from saying that 9/11 was our fault (which was despicable enough) to now saying that it's something our government actually wanted to happen. Put this up there with Ron Paul's belief that Southeast Asia got much better after we left Vietnam (a viewpoint doubtless shared by millions of massacred Southeast Asians -- but hey, at least we trade with Vietnam now) on the all time list of Ron Paul's contemptible and publicly-expressed beliefs.
Did the small cabal of neocons in the Bush adminstration cynically and opportunistically (in the tradition of Rahm “no crisis is worth wasting” Emanuel use 9-11 to attack the secular Iraq which had nothing to do with 9-11? Of course, they did! Of course, it is also a slimny smear to argue that pointing out that simple fact makes RP a truther e.g. an advocate of the view that the U.S. government intentionally murdered thousands of Americans on 9-11. If that is your claim, then prove it!
The true cynics are the neocons who used 9-11 as a pretext to get us into a war, even though the secular Saddam had nothing to do with 9-11. BTW, how’s that pro-Iran fundamentalist regime in Baghdad working out for you?
His followers are just that: brain dead, non-thinking followers
Imho, his followers are mostly interested in making marijuana legal and avoiding military service. Also, imho, he doesn’t care who they are or why they support him; he just wants to stay in power.
The true idiots are those who believe that Saddam was not working to destroy America. If given the lattitude he would have received under Barack Hussein Obama, he would have succeeded.
You sir, are a dangerous idiot.
I don’t know what to think - or who to trust, any longer. Somehow, all these conflicting views of reality seem like a cyber-repeat of the tower of Babel.
I do trust God, Your will be done.
And I wonder if he will destroy the internet, which I love, because it is like living a great library, but it could so easily become Satan’s playground, you know?
Long overdue truther, druggie, Ron Paul nut job ZOT!
