Bill Kristol on Fox News "Ron Paul Is Anti-American"

I was watch Fox News today at 12:15pm and they said Ron Paul is "criticizing" and "taking on" Abe Lincoln. I knew a hit piece was coming so I kept watching.
They had Bill Kristol (editor for the weekly standard) on to "discuss" Ron Paul comments about the civil war on Meet The Press. Kristol said Paul is "a crackpot", "a crank" and "anti American" among other things, he also said Paul "hates liberty".
This was the most ridiculous un"fair and balanced" thing I've seen on television yet.

Ignore Faux News

As a once-upon-a-time viewer of FoxNews (don't ask) who suddenly woke up a few years ago (a Damascus Road thing), I can tell you this: if people are religiously watching FauxNews (O'Reilly, Cavuto, etc) and are actually paying ANY attention to Fred Barnes, little Kristol, etc (and other neo-con Straussians), they would never vote for Dr. Paul anyway. Period.
Ron Paul will win over the FauxNews sheeple ONLY after he wins the nomination and FauxNews begins to tell its viewers to vote for Hillary over Dr. Paul. It'll all be over then (for FauxNews). Even sheeple will bolt when they see a butcher with a cleaver coming after them! Ignore lil Kristol (he's as irrelevant as was his father and Leo Strauss himself).
Merry Christmas. Dr. Paul WINS!! No joke. Dr. Paul wins.

No WONDER Kristol is critical of Teflon Paul:

Did a google search on Bill Kristol:

During the administration of George H.W. Bush, Bill Kristol was chief of staff to Vice President Dan Quayle, earning the moniker "Quayle's Brain"

http://rightweb.irc-online.org/profile/1254

SO in other words he was the brainpower behind Dan "Potatoe" Quayle...
I don't have to say anymore.

Billy is confused

He does not have a clue as to who is going to be the Republican candidate.

Bill Kristol is an Idiot. And sickly. A sick idiot. :-/

*** God bless Ron Paul ***

History Is On Ron Paul's Side

Obviously Mr. Kristol is upset that Dr. Paul told the truth in his interview on Meet The Press Sunday.There was nothing incorrect stated, only
inconvienient to those who would ignore what has happened to our Nation. We were formed as a confederation of INDEPENDENT States. Over the years we have slowly evolved into a socialist conglomeration of servile sub-states. As Dr. Paul pointed out this really took off under President Lincoln. Many rights and responsibilities that were assigned to the States by the Constitution were abrogated by the Federal government, never to be relinquished. Over time this process has expanded to education, health-care, commerce and on and on.Almost everything we do on a daily bases, from when we hit the alarm clock in the morning, to the toothbrush we use at the end of the night, is regulated, taxed and subject to federal scrutiny.
The reason that Ron Paul AND his message seems so extreme to Mr. Kristol and those of his ilk, is that We are demanding a return to a form of governing more in line with the way our founders created. If the modern version of America was workimg out well for the average citizen, I do not believe there would be this desire. But all we have to do is look around us. Problems on top of problems, too many to enumerate here, but we know in our heart that something is very wrong and being the good doctor that he is, Ron Paul WILL fix it.

This is great

This is a national dialogue that should have happened decades ago. It is similar to when the media was writing Ron Paul off and then the first money bomb happened. The contrast gets attention. Let them discuss what a kooky idea it is that the civil war wasn't essential. Let some of the college professors who have taught this for years challenge the mass media's portrayal of it and suddenly Ron Paul looks like the enlightened one. Just like the Guiliani-Ron Paul confrontation about whether there was blowback from CIA activities in the middle east for the past 50 years.

It's a great time to have this out especially with National Treasure 2 out.

That movie is mediocre at the very best.

The first National Treasure was far better.

The Zionists will, of course, pull every switch to derail the truth train. In their reality, people exist merely to serve and die for them.

I Thought That Billy Kristol

was that gay guy from the 1970s sitcom, Soap. I mean, he was funny and all, but why are his political opinions of interest to anybody?

That's Billy Crystal I

That's Billy Crystal I believe. Different person.

Kristol

They are desperate. They are scared s***less. This wasn't a part of the plan, this wasn't suppose to happen. Why aren't the sheeple listening to us anymore? What happened? Well, since we can't find any inconsistencies, or skeletons in his closet......we'll just make crap up, and opine. That should do the trick!

I love it.. Keep the critics

I love it.. Keep the critics coming.. its money in the bank for RON PAUL... It also forces me to keep on my toes so I can address the trash they are saying.... THANK YOU little WILLY Crystal... Please say MORE MORE MORE....

Best explained in one word..."FOX"

And what would even BEGIN to make you think they'd treat Ron any differently than they are?!

hmm

Being called anti-American from one of the most liberty-hating neocons on the planet...Ron has to be on the right track ;) Bill's a PNAC boy, an original neocon imperialist. He gets booed wherever he goes...I wouldn't worry too much what he says.

Ammunition against the Neocons

Well, checking the Blogosphere there is a ton of reaction to the Ron Paul Interview.

With a little bit of Searching I found references that back up Ron Paul on first - Israel wants the U.S. to attack Iran -

http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?articleId=4311&code=N...

"As if to kick off the New Year, and usher in the required political mindset, the Israelis are switching the attack Iran mantra into hyperdrive.

“As an American strike in Iran is essential for our existence, we must help him pave the way by lobbying the Democratic Party (which is conducting itself foolishly) and US newspaper editors,” declares Israeli Brigadier General Oded Tira. “We need to do this in order to turn the Iranian issue to a bipartisan one and unrelated to the Iraq failure.”

And as to the Iranian ability to attack israel

http://www.marinecorpstimes.com/news/2007/03/apiranobsolete0...

Iran has exaggerated its military capabilities, while U.S. and Israeli leaders have engaged in “provocative rhetoric” that overstates the Iranian threat, said Anthony Cordesman of the Washington-based Center for Strategic and International Studies.

In reality, Iran is more focused on national defense than using military power to boost its influence in the region, he said.

Cordesman, addressing military leaders from the U.S.-allied Gulf Arab states, said Iran’s disputed nuclear program could someday pose a danger, but said any looming threat lies a decade or so away, leaving time for diplomacy.

Iran represents “a force that has to be taken seriously in the defense of its country, but it has very little capacity to project outside the country,” Cordesman said. “Iran cannot seriously engage the U.S. for any length of time. In an asymmetric capacity perhaps, but not in conventional warfare.”

Ha! I think even the

Ha! I think even the hardcore Neocons that watch FoxNews have to see something wrong with this.

Bill Kristol lacks the intellectual ability...

... to offer rebuttals to Dr. Paul's assertions, so he resorts to name-calling. Every time these media hacks try to demean Dr. Paul, he wins the argument and the admiration of we the people.

good thing about it is that

good thing about it is that nobody kistens to this jerk

Chickens + Roost = Bill Kristol

Bill Kristol is seeing his chickens come home to roost. He still holds sway over some of the intelligensia that got behind this war, but his idealogical support is crumbling.

The only thing he has left is to play his fiddle while his ideas burn to the ground. I say good riddance.

If Bill Kristol were to call me un-American, I'd just be glad I don't live in his America, and thank him. It's practically an endorsement.

For the people who don't know Bill Kristol, I imagine they'll just say "who the heck is Bill Kristol". I wish EVERYONE could actually say that.

But what you're seeing there is a desperate, vindictive man, trying to hold on to whatever he has left.

The best thing you can do is list Bill Kristol's (and his magazine's) statements prior to the Iraq invasion and put them side by side with Ron Paul's.

Does anyone want to work on that project with me?

Kristol is King Neo Con

Kristol is an idiot. The good news is only hardcore neo cons who still are drunk from the Neo Con Kool Aid still listen to this worthless piece of trash.

Also what are the stages?
1 - First they ignore you - Check
2 - Then they laugh at you - Check
3 - Then they criticize you - <-- We're on this stage now
4 - You Win

Check

I love it! On to step four!

yep, we should be happy to see these attacks

It is inevitable. We can't storm the fortress and capture the crown without taking fire from those currently ensconced there.

Keep working hard, all. We're winning... but there's still lots more to do.

Counter these attacks by donating $5, 10 or whatever you

can afford. Believe me, these neo cons are watching to see if all their negativity is having any effect and the only barometer they have to go by is that donate-o-meter.

So lets show them that what they are attempting to do, may have worked in the past, on other candidates, but it will not work when it comes to Ron Paul and his supporter..

Also, we need to double our canvassing effects, although the neo cons will not be able to see the immediate results of this effort, they will on election day.

Let your money do your talking, donate, donate and donate some more. Show the OM and pundits they will not win this time...We the People will.

From Wikipedia.

William Kristol (born December 23, 1952 in New York City) is a Jewish American conservative pundit, analyst and strategist. He is the son of Irving Kristol, one of the founders of the neoconservative movement, and Gertrude Himmelfarb, a scholar of Victorian era literature, both of whom are secular Jewish Americans.

In 1997, Kristol and Robert Kagan cofounded the Project for the New American Century (PNAC). Kristol is a member of the board of trustees for the think tank Manhattan Institute. Kristol is also a member of the Policy Advisory Board for the neoconservative think tank Ethics and Public Policy Center. Additionally, Kristol has been an attendee at Bilderberg Group conferences.

good

good job

Ron Paul Hates Liberty?

So I guess if we don't goose step behind Kristol and support their agenda, were crackpots, cranks and anti-American.

Well, I spent 37 years in the military. I am an Iraqi veteran (2004-2005). And my opinion of these NeoCon mouthpieces for the Council on Foreign Relations, is not printable. How many of these fools served in the military? The most charitable thing I can say about them is that they are the north end of a south bound horse.

What do you expect from a

What do you expect from a neocon? And I mean this guy is THE neocon! RP must really be ruffling some feathers, ya think?

Ron Paul 2008!

Bill Kristol is a zionist

Zionist

That word sure gets thrown around a lot. Are you saying you are against the idea of a Jewish state? I'm not asking if you support everything Israel does, just wondering if you don't think they have a right to a homeland.
