Mainstream LA Times prints Paul delegate quote comparing GOP policies to NAZI GermanySubmitted by the_chiefe71 on Wed, 08/29/2012 - 16:29
Has this article been posted here already? If yes, sorry...
Anyway, it tells story of corruption that went on yesterday (and simmering weeks before) very well. In particular, I found following quote telling as it is printed in a mainstream rag:
Paul did not win a single state; however, his ardent followers worked arcane local and state party rules to take over several state delegations, including garnering 20 of Maine's 24 spots. The RNC decided to replace 10 of them, effectively stopping the state from being able to submit Paul's name for nomination. (In response, the state's Republican governor, a Romney supporter, decided to boycott the convention.)
That seating decision along with others prompted Wiselet Rouzard, a delegate from Nevada and a Paul supporter, to compare the situation to Adolf Hitler taking power in Germany.
"There's nothing American about what just happened," he said. "This is the death of the Republican Party."
Once Romney was nominated, during the roll call of states, several listed votes for both Romney and Paul. When repeating back the count, officials at the podium cited only the Romney votes.
