OWS endorses Ron Paul as April Fools' joke...not funny!Submitted by amitj78 on Sun, 04/01/2012 - 07:26
I just decided to Google Ron Paul April Fools and this was the second result:
A screenshot of the post he is referencing, in case they pull his post down:
NYCGA homepage where the post resides:
The poster of that forum post (not the joke) feels that it is not beneficial to alienate RP supporters and Libertarians in general. He is right.
There have been many forum debates on here about OWS. Like the Tea Party, I supported them whole-heartedly in the beginning, until they had their "Tea Party FreedomWorks" moment and got co-opted by George Soros and the unions. But I still felt the boots on the ground that they had could eventually come around to our way of thinking. Unfortunately, as the forum poster pointed out, this joke would have to have been approved by 90% of those boots on the ground.
Perhaps lancealotlink can respond to this. I, for one, am extremely disappointed that they would make jokes about a man of such high integrity, when there are three other candidates and one president who have displayed the opposite.
EDIT: They also say that at the end that their endorsement is dependent on him choosing Dr. Cornel West as his VP. West was a noted civil rights activist, but someone who clearly sees America as a racially divided nation. Perhaps this is a dig at the supposedly racist attitudes of Ron Paul. I am pretty disgusted with them right now.
