Ron Paul: People Call Me ‘Kooky’ Because They Can’t Defend Themselves Intellectually

Ron Paul gave a good account of himself this morning in a series of interviews following his second place finish in the New Hampshire primary. One interview in particular stood out as Paul defended his foreign policy from claims that it is “kooky”.

In a somewhat bizarre change of subject during an interview with Fox & Friends, host Gretchen Carlson seemed embarrassed, stating “Congressman, excuse me for saying this but do you believe some people call you kooky… for your foreign policy only? Is that the reason why?”

Paul responded “They use those terms because they can’t defend themselves intellectually.”

“If they say my foreign policy is kooky, maybe they ought to look at what is happening.” Paul added. “…invading a country like Iraq, who never did a thing to us, killing a lot of people and turning it over to the shiites who are allies with the Iranians, I call that kooky.”

Owned them like usual


It took him a lot of iterations but he has finaly nailed the response. Actually, I would prefer it if he explicitly called out logical fallacies before responding to them but this gets the job done.

If you study logical

If you study logical fallacies you'll find that they are primarily what the MSM relies upon in order to promote their agenda.

Ad Hominem attacks (such as being called "kooky") are a common sign that you are dealing with someone that is unwilling or unable to deal with the facts of the argument.

He absolutely nailed that

He absolutely nailed that kooky thing.
