Anti-Ron Paul bile on full display at HotAir.com and Slate.com

I will fully admit, I do not agree 100 percent with Representative Ron Paul's views. However, since watching the Wall Street meltdown and the economic downturn that followed; I have come to appreciate Ron Paul's views on fiscal policy. Furthermore, I share Ron Paul's views on Federalism.

Now I shall fully admit, that I somewhat disagree a tiny bit with Ron Paul's views on foreign policy. However, I happen to be browsing over at HotAir.com 1 and I saw something there that disgusted me quite a bit.

Over in the headline's section of HotAir.com, which is biased quite towards Neoconservative Republicans and against anyone else who disagrees with them, I happen to see a Headline with a link to a Slate.com article 2 about Ron Paul. The article was written by a one Dave Weigel, who is about as much of a Conservative, as I am a Homosexual. (...and I am not, in case you wondered.)

What really disappointed me about this, is the asinine bile posted in the comments section of HotAir's headline section towards Ron Paul. It is quite amazing me me, that people can make such asinine comments like that towards a American man, who dares to simple love his Country. What really steams me is this; if someone, like me were registered there and made comments like these towards Jews, Blacks or any other protected minority, we would be banned from commenting at that site ---- as I have been in the past. Oh, and trust me, my comments were very mild compared to some of the bile that is in there right now about Ron Paul, one even saying he wishes Ron Paul to be dead. I am sorry, but that is over the line, as is comparing Ron Paul to a communist or worse.

Furthermore, David Weigel's posting, which is written in the typical elitist snobbery fashion, that is his hallmark of a failed writer.

This, my friends, is why I will not for Mitt Romney in the General 2012 election. Because even I do not agree 100% with Ron Paul's positions, I do respect the man for what he has done and stood for in the past. It is too bad, the other so-called Conservatives cannot do that same very thing.

Why waste your precious time & energy

delving into what even you yourself describe as rantings of the elitest snobbery. And certainly don't waste your time spreading it around here, where it'll be dutifully ignored.

Don't bog yourself down with it and direct your thoughts & energy elsewhere. :)

I take that kind of shit in stride...

remember, that ilk are the same people who listen to Rush and Levin, read Ann Coulter's books, never miss an episode of Hannity, and are supporting Willard. Not a lot of intellectual merit behind their blathering.

I don't play, I commission the league.

This is to be expected.

The beast is wounded. Not from us but from it's own loss of reality driven by greed and lust.

The wound is mortal and it's bleeding out, we are witnessing the tail thrashing as it gets really ugly.

Base

Edit: Watch out for the tail.

I have no idea how people can write such things

I have no idea how people can write such things about a man who :

1. served his country in the army
2. has delivered 4000 babies
3. has managed to avoid doing EVEN A SINGLE ONE abortion even in the most serious cases
4. sometimes has practiced his medicine for free for his poorest patients
5. has been crying and standing for Peace and defense of the U.S. soil to restore, instead of starting injust and so hazardous overseas wars, for 40 years
6. has been crying and standing for Liberty and accountability restored in America's politic and economy, for the same amount time

What sort of life can they have when they speak or write with that much hatred about someone they seemingly know nothing about ?

How can they possibly be Americans ?

How can they possibly hate A GOOD MAN, fellow American like him ?

A man who has SAID WHAT HE MEANT, AND WHO HAS DONE WHAT HE SAID, FOR MORE THAN 70 YEARS.

Including IN PUBLIC, BEFORE HIS COUNTRY'S CONGRESS. BE HE ALONE DOING SO !

This is unbelievable to read those things.

"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.

Seems like the idiots posting

Seems like the idiots posting are actually looking forward to having a revamped fascist state. They deserve every ounce of tyranny that they get.
