"They" co-opted the teaparty and the OWS movement

"They" co-opted the teaparty and the OWS movement.... this is no different, they see this as an opportunity to co-opt the liberty movement and therefore dictate the narrative of what "they" deem important to the nation.

Rand is just a pawn in this game of politics... they don't actually like him or his ideals but they will use him to gain power within the movement until they control it. Once that happens they will go back to business as usual with talk of abortion and gay rights while simultaneously bashing rand for any thing and everything that doesn't fit with the new media controlled narrative.

I give it a month before the Rand bashing starts.

Tools of war are not always obvious. The worst weapon is an idea planted in the mind of man. Prejudices can kill, suspicion can destroy, and a thoughtless, frightened search for a scapegoat has an everlasting fallout all of its own.
