The Ugly Truth Behind Ron Paul's Chris Kyle Tweets


My take on the Ron Paul/Chris Kyle Twitter controversy. There's a reason for everything!

The timing of RP's tweet was perfect

And inconvenient as hell!

Real truth is often like that, it hurts. Bad. You know it's true when everyone starts hissing at you. No better time than the present, because in a week or so nobody's gonna know what your talking about.

The real battle that has to be fought in this country is for the hearts and minds of individuals to reject the cult of war.


I thought I'd interject this

Ron Paul is a brilliant and moral man and though I have some issues with this article (below) that I'm posting I think it might shed some light on some of the rapid lightning fast thinking and analysis that Ron Paul is so noted for. I certainly hope that Ron Paul will continue to be himself (the honest straightforward man he has always been whether we are offended or not) and not buckle to political correctness as seems to be the case with Rand (I still like Rand). With that said here's the article:




Thanks, youtuber! This is the first of your vids that I have watched (I think). I will watch more.

Ron Paul, with the tweet-heard-round-the-world not only put the War Pigs on notice, but us as well.

"Why'd you do that to us, Ron?" (paraphrase)

I cringed a bit as well... in hindsight, perhaps it's a nudge from the nest that all of us young birds of Liberty need. Ron Paul is nudging us to become Eagles, soaring above the cowering lovers of State below.

A bit of a stretch, to be certain... but I have found it to be in-roads toward folks that claim to be followers of Christ.

Think about it. Even the most ardent FauxNoose supporter will think again when pressed toward the fact that their love of War flies in the face of Jesus.

IMO, RP is brilliant!

You've done an excellent job

accurately portraying Jesus' true love for peace. Slanderers are simply that. They don't know how to keep things in context. I agree the tweet was way to early. But Dr. Paul is a human being.

We seem to treat the Bible

like a bag of pic'n'mix, selectively choosing what we like, and discarding what we don't.And this is one of those occasions.
The blatant hero worship of the military is a coup for propaganda.

Thank you for this.

I hope whatever God you worship is the true God. :)

I agreed with everything except the part about

Same here. I agree with

Same here. I agree with everything except saying what RP said is improper. If there was any time to say it, it was now, not when this topic is stale. RP waited a bit, then said it. I have no problem with what he said, how he said and when he said it. Good for RP.

By the way, I'm glad Jacob Hornberger published this column today. It's an excellent piece on the war culture in America, one I think is in the minority of Americans but at a glance appears ubiquitous courtesy the propaganda arm of the establishment, the media. Make no mistake that I think the war culture isn't entrenched in influential quarters even though I think it isn't ubiquitous. To Mr. Hornberger, fantastic work.

I liked it so much that I posted it on several site's

comments areas. I also posted it on reddit - I never post anything over there, but felt that I needed to spread it. Can only hope people start questioning and waking up.

That guy needs to be on

That guy needs to be on radio. He's articulate, thoughtful, fluid, sincere, forthright, sensical and he's got a cool accent. I don't know how he interviews; this airing is the first of his I've heard. I like what I heard, though. If he's this way each time and interviews well, where he listens and makes intelligent counterpoints and follow-ups, I hope to hear him on radio some day.

I Don't Post Him On DP

because most of the time every other word out of his mouth is fn this or fn that or many other words that would offend the eyes and ears of the more refined viewers on DP. This dude is hardcore Texas patriot and I have followed him for a long time. Us Texans tend to do that. Anyway, he was on good behavior in this video and didn't use his usual colorful vocabulary. I love watching William myself. I was subscribed to him on youtube until I had to close my account to tell google to go f themselves since they demanded I fill out a form to post or vote on youtube.


I did get ahead of myself

I did get ahead of myself slightly when I said he needs to be on radio, but I did say I haven't heard him before and qualified my opening statement when I said if he's listens.... If from here onward he speaks as well or better than he did in this video and interviews rather than talks to someone, I think radio could be in his future. That said, I agree with you, skippy d.

Swears and other mind eating language should be avoided. If he does swear, an emphasis and clarity tactic, I hope he curtails it to imperative points or, better, to not using them.

The effect of swearing is like that of a druggie who increases his consumption of a drug or takes a stronger drug to reach the effect from the drug he took first, the swearer must use more impactful words and use them ever increasingly to reach the effect they gave when he began swearing. Swearing is that way for its user and, more important, for the people receiving -- that is, hearing or reading -- the swears.

Upon the user's being aware that he swears often and offensively (as opposed to defensively), he notices his environment has changed tremendously and always for the worse, whereby the people surrounding him aren't just users but are hardcore users, people who are wasted and probably the kind of persons they didn't intend to be, the opposite of what they were or of what they could have been, themselves refined. Those who receive that language, abusive language, go into two camps: people who thrive off it and people who avoid it. The two camps emerge gradually and because so, the one remaining is the force that perpetuates the person who swears (to the people of that camp). Yes, a cycle.

I hope the guy in the video stops using swears if he uses them how you said he does, often. If he says them often, I hope he becomes conscientious of this use. But if he's aware of this use, then probably unknowingly he is harming himself and his audience. If he is cognizant that swears, however, do dull the mind, then his mind will be protected, will be the same. But the minds of the members of his audience, especially those persons who believe swears "get things done," their minds will wear down to incapability of thought and become engorged in aggression. Swearing is deleterious mentally and physically because language -- thought expressed -- is intimate to action.

As any thing is, it has a relationship to a thing, a reciprocal state. About swearing, the person who swears rarely or never, not only will he heighten his audience intellectually, causing them to think adroitly and swiftly because, they, his audience, won't spend time deflecting foul words to piece his message together, an operation of fluidity, they will do the same to him, causing him to increase his prowess and without effort he invites his opponents to listen and learn, thereby provide opportunity for brotherhood, opportunity for peace.

I agree

I first heard him exposing Ted Nugent and Treyvon/Zimmerman. I found myself unable to click away and ended up watching his whole youtube even though I had no time for it and just intended to quickly check it. Thoroughly entertaining style and well reasoned points. Could do without the cursing but otherwise quite good.

Not MY Show!

Tex and Rex are friends of mine, I do call in and speak with them every now and then, they're good people.

“Never think of pain or danger or enemies a moment longer than is necessary to fight them.”

Change the Title. This is an important message

for the Liberty movememt. Karl Rove is already working to kick out Justin Amash and others in 2014.

Thank you!

But I'm not really sure what I should call it, that's about as catchy as I could come up with. Maybe whoever calls the shots here at DP will put it on the front page.

“Never think of pain or danger or enemies a moment longer than is necessary to fight them.”

Use Karl Rove's name in a question

Don' t you know how right you are about that civil war between the grassroots and the syndicate?

Why give a rotten brand any visibility?

Just tell the truth and don't advertise liars just because it will raise ratings or win clicks.

Thank you for your contribution!

I speak my mind, bud, and I give my honest opinion. If you don't like it, vote it down and keep on steppin'.

So anyone's opinion that doesn't conform with yours, you accuse of ulterior motives? AND you accuse me of lying? Pray tell, exactly WHAT part of this video did you find untruthful?

And what part rendered you butt-hurt?

“Never think of pain or danger or enemies a moment longer than is necessary to fight them.”

The suggestion was to change headline to Add Rove's name.

I made my dissent. Headline was good as you'd written it.

Don't worry, Ill kick your ass if you ever need it ;-)

Man, I TOTALLY mis-read your comment, and I do apologize. File me under "D" for "Duh"!

“Never think of pain or danger or enemies a moment longer than is necessary to fight them.”

My bad I was not clear and did not properly aim my pronouns.

I'll blame it on Karl, the despicable turd polisher gets me grinding my teeth and set my blood a boiling.

No worries. Keep up the good work!

Nice video

I agree with you. I'd like to think this was part of some clever strategy, but I don't. I think Ron (or whoever actually writes his tweets) made a mistake and didn't realize the impact that tweet would have. It's not a disaster, but it's certainly not helpful.

Any statement that questions

Any statement that questions aggressive warfare is not a mistake. Its a virtue.


It's only a virtue if it leads to an increased probability of actually doing something about stopping the aggressive warfare. If it positively damages the odds of that happening, then it is certainly a vice.
