Trash Alert!: PajamasMedia Ron Paul Story

Poorly written, and even poorer augments, which are untrue. RP is not an isolationist! There is no mention of balanced budgets, pro-life, end the fed, etc.

We can flood the comments section to trash this piece of trash. Is this something we should fightback about or alternatively,let it go unanswered?

Ron Paul and the Dangers of Isolationism

Shine a light on his reckless ideas before he has a chance to do damage.

Ron Paul has built a reputation — (story continues with comments)

some comments:

gcblues:

pretty pathetic article of a neo con arguing against ideas he thinks ron paul has. using selective quotes and straw man argumentation, not to knock ron really, but to support the neo con ideals.
lets be clear, neo cons have nothing to do with conservatism or american tradition. i will not speak for ron paul, but i will speak for me as a far right wing traditional conservative. neo con use of the budget is obscene. neo con foreign adventures in democracy building are obscene. neo con ignorance of almost every country in the world is obscene. neo con racism, anti trade notions, and ethnocentric facism is obscene. none of the mentioned obscenities have a thing to do with the conservatism. they are the fascist right. not the liberty right.
if you think using the military to bring countries into the usa’s sphere is smart. if you believe in building walls and trade restrictions. if you believe english culture and the usa s the center of the universe. you are not conservative, you are a dumb neo con. in that respect, ron paul makes a heck of a lot more sense than neo cons. neo cons, have not and never will be conservatives.

I think those were wise words Washington used in his farewell address and I believe they are wise words today.

Your comment is awaiting moderation.

I could not agree more with the comments made by “gcblues.” Pathetic arguments, which are in fact incorrect. Ron Paul is not an isolationist. The author of this article is the one who is dangerous, and I hope that he is the one who will rest in peace after writing such a story.

“..as a man harping back to the ideals of a bygone era that never really was.”

Does the author refer to an era when we followed the Constitution? I long also for a time like this. McCarty should read it sometime soon and then write about who in Congress supports the Constitution more vigorously than Dr. Ron Paul. If he did, the page would be blank as this one should also be.

Ron Paul and the far-right protest movement

This writer seems to think Ron Paul supporters might be the new Nazis.

this is just one example of the places people are discussing this, and as you can see, people aren't falling for this hack piece.

Isolationist

Isolationist refeers to Ron Paul wanting to "abandon" Israel.

Don't answer.

Trolling (the act of posting inflammatory passages on the internet in order to bask in the flood of indignant comments) relies upon responders to sustain itself.

Any angry responses will simply be seen as proof that all Ron Paul supporters are crazy.

CHA-CHING!

CHA-CHING!

Guess who's behind the hijacking of Tea Party protests?

Yep...the Zions of Pajamas Media. Roger Lichtenberg Simon is CEO of Pajamas Media and lives in California.

Pajamas TV is keeping a schedule of upcoming protests, interviewing
organizations and individuals involved, and gathering photos and videos from various events. The current schedule shows seven upcoming Tea Party protests for this weekend.

Who or what is Pajamas Media?

Don't answer that. It's nothing worth bothering with. No one would have heard of them if they didn't pop up when you google Ron Paul. That's why they publish the hot buttons. You think they have not been told hundreds of times that Ron Paul is not an isolationist?

Ignore them.

I would never pay money for that crappy website. I do like instapundit.com but that is about it.

Here's the comment I left:

You know that old saw about an army of monkeys on typewriters eventually producing the works of Shakespeare given enough time?

Well, it takes about one monkey, with a lobotomy, scribbling with a crayon for about 10 minutes to produce one of these boring, predictable, inaccurate, and ridiculously unconvincing hit pieces on Ron Paul. (He opposes "just about every other form of contact with the outside world"? Really? Adults are supposed to believe this?)

What's the matter -- 534 warmongers in Congress aren't enough? Can't have even one guy with a different point of view? Threatens the illusion of consensus a little too much? Oops.

Well done, Spencer McCarthy. You are cool enough to be in the club now! You may put down your crayon and go retrieve your banana!

Dave: Your comment was Excellent!

These comments are taring into this guy's ego, if he any left after writing such a trash hit piece.

Pajamas Media

is just another rancid neo-con outlet.

I wrote a response

Kept it simple, and civil.
Just a few corrections towards the author.
