Oh Jeez..

Jessie got some cooties from those lowly Maine delegates. He was sweatin' out the moments until he could get back to his real Republican friends and away from all those 'fringy' types.

Best part of the video!

He validated them for what they did, encouraged them to stand

strong and look to the future. This is all good advice and was very well received!


The question that you and

The question that you and other Benton apologists never explain is how this could have happened given Benton's deals and "excellent" strategy! One is not a "crybaby" for refusing to have one's rights raped in public! Benton is not the future thank God, but he sure has helped to slow our progress. And he has no shame about it.

Looks like things didn't work out as planned for Jesse Benton.

Jesse Benton: clearly wearing body armor, obviously distracted or discouraged or both, and apparently living an unhealthy lifestyle.

It is sad that he is embarrassed to be associated with Paulitarians. That being said, his advice is sound. Everyone was mistreated, but Paulitarians must not act like little bitches about it -- he used the word "cry babies." But,I believe that he really meant little bitches. There are words of wisdom that he has imparted.

Jesse Benton is a conformist at heart. "Fringe elements" means anyone that is a little different than he is. Wrong person for the job and the results so demonstrate.

But, his feeble words do not redeem him in my book. Kick dirt over Jesse Benton's career. Maybe car sales, or vinyl siding. Not that there is anything wrong with it. But, he is no political strategist and not any sort of Ron Paul "lieutenant." We won't be bothered by his like anytime soon.

Jesse is definitely being well fed on our donation money.

Jesse is definitely being well fed on our donation money. He needs to be put on a low carb, low cash diet. And the Paul family should put him out to pasture.

Resist the temptation to feed the trolls.

We noticed that at Sunday's We Are the Future" event he didn't get very much applause. Worth watching Dr. Paul again on Cspan.


You fat traitorus fk...go eat another steak dinner on our back you pos..

I'm with jesse on this, and

I'm with jesse on this, and I'm no particular fan of his. All he is saying is take it with a grain of salt and go back home and fight harder and keep building the movement. the cry baby comment was justa tongue and cheek comment, i.e. don't be too upset over the loss.

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

Not tongue in cheek. Rather, projection.

“The strongest man in the world is he who stands most alone”, Henrik Ibsen.

Jesse Benton could never, ever, stand alone.

Jesse's a dick. But, what he meant to say was "be gracious" and "dignified" over your mistreatment. And that advice is sound. It is the advice that he is giving himself.

It is irritating because We are not pathetic little bitches. He really did not need to suggest that we not be pathetic little bitches, because nobody was acting that way to begin with. I think that Jesse Benton probably wants to be a pathetic little bitch himself, so he was engaging in what psychologists call "projection."

He is a coward who needs the approval of the Demopublican power base. He is a coward because he thinks that he needs body armor to protect himself from the "Fringe Element." Paulitarians don't engage in violence, Paulitarians organize, proselytize, and use words. Benton has nothing to fear from a Paulitarian.

What a pussy.

When you are calling people

When you are calling people crybabies, you better think hard about it, because it's an obviously offensive thing. I can go on national television and call someone a cunt, then claim it was just a tongue and cheek comment. It doesn't matter. At that point I've already said it, and it MASSIVELY offended a bunch of people. It's too late to say "oh it was just a minor comment". It's NOT. It is INHERENTLY a massive offense.

What a fucking douche

Dont sound like crybabies?!?!?!

Not once would you stick up for any of us and now all you can do patronize us with your preemptive reprimands?!?!?! Fuck you Benton. Shame on the delegation for kissing his ass too.

He is wearing a bullet proof vest you can tell at 1:08 he knows he's been an asshole and pissed people off so now he so afraid he thinks people are gunning for him!!!

Hahahahaha!!!! What a loser...

Benton: "uhhh... we think

Benton: "uhhh... we think that the Maine delegation is a fringe element to this campaign and we would rather it go away."

You know that Schiff disagrees with attacking Benton, right?

Just important that we be fair to Peter. He disagrees with the characterization of Benton from the video.


Says it is out of context.

Posts like this don't reflect

Posts like this don't reflect well on the intelligence of the DP people. All I see when I see a post like this is politics as usual . . . not the higher standard of discernment that I expect.

Benton gave good advise, though I don't think that the Maine delegates needed it. I'm sure they know just as well as Jessie, but then again, it never hurts to reinorce and remind people of the advice in times of high emotion.

Nobody asked him any tough questions :(

What was his reasoning for staying behind?
What is his next gig?
What is he going to do next to promote the cause?
What is going on between you and Kokesh?
What are you guys going to do with the remaining donation money?

Found this info on Jesse Benton

He has consulting firms one of which is based in DC which may explain his traitorous tendencies.

Maybe you need to re-watch...

He did not call anyone a cry baby. Give it a rest!!

I hope somebody beats the crap out of Jesse Benton

Wish my health was better as I would happily volunteer for the job.

I wouldn't care if Jesse said we are the best people in the

world, he can still kiss my a$$ and go straight to hell. As of May I consider him a piece of raw sewage and a traitor to the entire movement.
Sure hope he enjoys the nice house we bought him.

Formerly rprevolutionist

Who's Banton?

Where is Main? lol

That's either a cheap suit or

That's either a cheap suit or his bullet proof vest is clearly showing at 1:08 in the video ... wonder who he is afraid of?

Spin much?

He said there's no need to sound like crybabies in the media because they have Right on their side and can just present their case plainly and clearly.
It sounded more like a pep talk to me.

Damn people are stupid..

Don't sound like crybabies means don't go bashing the republican party because of the wrongs they committed rather learn to live with it because you know you are in the right and you will come back stronger in 16..In other words, as long as you know you're in the right other people/media don't need to know about it.

How about you and he stfu.

I didn't take it that way when he said

cry babies. He said to take the high road and not act like cry babies because they were right. To go back home and keep the movement alive because of the bull that went on in Tampa and all campaign the Liberty movement has a lot of sympathy. I don't care for Benton either. I think he is a lazy fat lard. That is eating well off of all of us. Hope this is his last campaign and he retires to the nearest pig sty in Traitorsville.

It's time! Rand Paul 2016!

"Truth, Justice, and the American Way!"

The title of this OP

Is a misrepresentation of what Jesse Benton said. He was talking to the Maine delegates who were left unseated and he was advising them on their best strategy when they were being questioned on the subject of their ouster.

He was from what I discerned giving them good advice and they were receptive to what he was saying. He advised them to keep the moral high ground they already had and not to lose it by being "cry babies". Think about it. That is sound advice.

Unfortunately there has been so much poison spread on the DP about Jesse Benton the people who have swallowed it have a case of damaged hearing when it comes to anything he says or does. Their animus has deafened them to the truth.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)

what fkn moral highground do they

when they can't comment on the injustice commiited and most people think RP delegates are nothing but a bunch of troublemakers trying to take over the party.

WTF is wrong with you people?


Sums it up. You are right and you have the moral high ground, buuuuutttt don't talk about it, just shut your mouth cry baby.

the always "genius" of

the always "genius" of Benton. NOT! How dare he cally anyone who is upset about this "crybabiess."
