Message to the CNN: Stop Censoring Gary Johnson Now!

The following Press Release was emailed by the Gary Johnson for President campaign in regards to the recent omission of Jesse Ventura’s endorsement on CNN.

Friends,

Censored again.

A few days ago, former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura was interviewed by CNN, and offered strong words of support for Governor Johnson. But…when CNN posted the interview to their website, Gov. Ventura’s remarks about Gov. Johnson were mysteriously missing, as reported by the Daily Caller.

Is anyone surprised?

It is no secret that the mainstream media is fully invested in the tired Republican-Democrat party duopoly. And this certainly isn’t the first time CNN has “excluded” Governor Johnson. Remember the debates last year? Despite polling as well as other candidates who were invited, CNN refused to allow Gov. Johnson on the stage for any of the presidential debates they sponsored.

We’ve known from the very beginning that we could never depend on the elite media alone to communicate with the voters we need to reach. Congressman Ron Paul has been fighting this battle for years...

Ron Paul 2012 - It's Almost Here!

Actually, didn't they censor a lot...

...of what Jesse V. had said. One would think that the media is more afraid of Jesse V. even than G.J.! Not surprised though. They don't like anyone representing freedom!

I think you just hit the nail on the head...

"One would think that the media is more afraid of Jesse V. even than G.J.!"

De criminalize Liberty!

You forgot to...

...up vote me then! LOL!

This is oppression. It's

This is oppression. It's obvious here that the media fears a third party by suppressing governor Ventura's endorsement. Of course it's Ron Paul right now and no one else. But people we are voting down a thread that is protesting against suppression of liberty. We need more voices. If Ron Paul won the nomination for the party. Wouldn't it still be great to see the Libertarian party in the debates? Obama - Johnson - Paul in a three way debate. I don't see a problem with that.

Everyone is going for Ron Paul here. So let's not be afraid of Gary Johnson unless we are working for CNN or Fox. Ok?

2Co 3:17 Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
http://www.thethirdangelsmessage.com/wordpress/should-christ...

Correction...

Not EVERYONE here is going for Ron Paul. Also, based on the comments in this thread, I see NOONE here being "afraid" of Gary Johnson. So let's not go all crazy, making suggestions such as someones "working for CNN or Fox".

"It's obvious here that the media fears a third party by suppressing governor Ventura's endorsement"...All due respect, but the media does not fear Gary Johnson. If Ron Paul endorsed Gary Johnson, then maybe. See how that works. It takes the endorsement of Dr. Paul for Johnson to matter. Wake up and stop being afraid.

De criminalize Liberty!

If Ron Paul doesn't get the

If Ron Paul doesn't get the nomination which he is pretty much conceding to Romney right now. Then the media's purpose is for our movement to disappear. Romney nor Obama are an option for those in the liberty movement and many are going to go to Gary Johnson. CNN has suppressed the Jesse Ventura endorsement and they don't want people to know there is any other option but Romney and Obama.

But I'm with Jesse. If Ron is out, we endorse Gary Johnson, hold him to the fire, and convince him to have Ron as VP. Or Jesse if Ron won't do it. And we should be protesting CNN right here and now so they don't get carried aware with their 2 party monopoly game.

2Co 3:17 Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
http://www.thethirdangelsmessage.com/wordpress/should-christ...

"which he is pretty much conceding to Romney right now"

"they don't want people to know there is any other option but Romney and Obama."

"If Ron is out, we endorse Gary Johnson"...Guess what..Ron Paul is NOT out.

"And we should be protesting CNN right here and now"...Excuse me, but I've been protesting CNN for about 8 months now. So you just now want to protest CNN? For Gary Johnson. Where's your protest for Dr. Paul? I don't see it.

All due respect, your comments seem a bit asinine.

De criminalize Liberty!

So, Gary Johnson believes

that Guantanamo Bay should stay open to allow "enemy combatants" to be detained indefinitely without charges...Yeah, real Libertarian there. Now your Johnson threads are becoming very irritating. For every thread you post PUSHING gary johnson BEFORE Dr. Pauls convention, I will post one such as below.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cRlGXuGHfrc

Does Ron Paul support keeping Guantanamo Bay open? Didn't think so.

P.s...Message To CNN And All Other Media: Stop Censoring Ron Paul NOW!

De criminalize Liberty!

ROMNEY SUPPORTERS MIGHT WANT TO GO THERE?

I'm sorry...

I do not understand your rebuttal. But I did make you a 30 second video clip since Gary Johnson SUPPORTS AND VOTED FOR RON PAUL. Perhaps any and all Johnson supporters should join forces with us, as oppose to the other way around, which is what you suggest. No thanks. I choose Ron Paul until there is no Ron Paul to be chosen.

you must be a romney supporter

because you called the troll out.
default answer from that particular troll.

"The two weakest arguments for any issue on the House floor are moral and constitutional"
Ron Paul

Yeah, I was kind of trying to figure out

what to make of it. I'm really hoping he wasn't suggesting that I am a Romney supporter, as one could easily track my history here and come to a reasonable conclusion that that is not the case. However, I certainly don't consider LegalizeLiberty a troll, but I would suggest that his push for Gary Johnson lately has been very "trollish" (if that's a word). And I argued with myself whether or not to even comment on his new Johnson thread because I REALLY hate to give this type of post ANY "bump", but I also like to give my opinion.

De criminalize Liberty!

if it walks like a troll and it quacks like a troll

If you want no more war, the choice should be clear

northstar's picture

I'm in a holding pattern

...until after the Tampa convention to see how things shake out. Then there will be the fork in the road I will have to decide which way to go. One fork has a few options that aren't quite set in stone and the other is well, Ron Paul of course.

I just have to wait and see.

Real eyes realize real lies

We want our country back

Every year is a year for Ron Paul!

What has changed my friend?

What has changed since Ron Paul was asked who he would support for the GOP nomination if he himself decided not to run?
Do you remember what Dr. Paul said?

This was before Ron Paul decided to run.

You again are avoiding my argument that I humbly make

to you legalizeliberty. Please don't side step the argument. Yes Dr Paul endorsed GJ...good for him. Don't fret, we all may make the feel good vote on election day. But THAT is not the point.

My point to you and everyone inside our r3VOLution LIBERTY ADVANCING MOVEMENT is that OUR COLLECTIVE ENERGIES are better spent in another way to advance liberty than working on the LP/GJ campaign.

Now that is my claim. What backs up my claim? Well to back up my claim I wrote these 5 essays.

I respect your opinion

LP will be what we make it to be.
It is not malinvestment of our energies to have this battle ship take on the status quo.

We will cover this in September my friend -- then you will realize I was right.

Never in the history of America people were faced with two such horrible candidates.
Once seeing they do have a good candidate and real choice people will make GJ bigger than Ross Perot was during his run.
Remember there was no internet back then.

I understand that censorship needs to be addressed...

but isn't this a Ron Paul site? No offense meant here. I think Johnson would do a great job, but currently I do not support Johnson any more than I do Santorum or Gingrich (I am NOT equating him with these guys, just expressing the lack of concern I have with him at the moment).

Please read words at the very top of this website

Dedicated to restoring Constitutional government to the United States of America

This is Liberty oriented site and Liberty Movement is not about one person -- it is a big tent that includes Blue Republicans Libertarian Party etc.

If this website existed during Patrick Henry's day would you insist it's only about Patrick Henry or the message of Liberty he spoke about?
I would strongly suggest you read Dr. Paul's latest book 'Liberty Defined'.

We agree on what this site is about,

but we disagree on where our efforts are best placed. Based on the "Gary Johnson 2012!" in your signature, it appears that you've either given up on Dr. Paul, or that you were never here to support him in the first place. I'm assuming it's the former and not the latter.

And yes, I agree with everything you've said in your reply, but that doesn't detract from the fact that everyone in this community, minus the trolls, are desperately trying to get Paul elected, not Johnson.

IMHO, you should stop campaigning for the Johnson campaign and get back on the Paul train, if there was indeed a time that you were on it (I recognize your name, but I don't recall anything in particular of your previous posts or comments, so I honestly don't know which it is).

I work on two fronts since Rand endorsed Romney

I campaigned for Ron Paul since April 2007 and continue doing so.

To put all eggs in one basket invites disaster -- if you ever played the stock market you would know what I mean.

This is my website:
http://www.libertypoet.com/
as you can see I don't have even a link to Gary Johnson's site.
But I do have over 50 great Ron Paul vids:
http://www.libertypoet.com/ronpaul/index.html

I must be doing great work over the years since the owner of this site let me be a moderator here for couple of years in the past.
You might remember me from organizing Money Bomb events here for Ron Paul Debra Medina Jake Towne and many other Liberty candidates and including rasing money for Oath Keepers.
