Skip to comments.The Face Of Alinksy At CPAC (Ron Paul and Gay Rights)
Posted on 02/21/2010 8:45:57 AM PST by Three if by government
When I began hearing headlines out of CPAC about the gay rights activist and the support for Ron Paul in the straw poll which is being trumpeted by the left media with such joy I began to think back to something I heard regarding Alinky tactics in "Rules For Radicals".
Dont send out people to events to protest against the opposition send out people in support that will undermine their beliefs and divide their supporters.
In this example I believe they sent out people in KKK outfits in support of a republican cadidate to undermine him and make him look racist.
Common sense tells you that the nation is opposed to gay rights legislation they can even pass these laws in California yet we are to believe there is a gay ascendancy in the conservative movement?
This spits in the face of tradionational values which is a fundamental aspect to our movement and actually part of many that are left of center and religious.
Are we to believe that Conservatives are split on this topic just as Beck said they are trying to make us feel like we are in the minority while we represent north of 75% the population on this topic.
Ron Paul gets overwhelming support from a poll while most conservatives reject his stance on foreign policy and the blame America first attitude which is on constant display by the Obama administration.(Demorilization of population)
We need to realize what we are up against the left will stop at nothing to demoralize us; be resolute and instead of reading headlines, becoming discouraged know in your heart that the American people will not fall for these tactics; we represent the majority trust your instics and vote with your heart.
I am entirely convinced that Ron Paul (either knowingly or unknowingly) is being funded and supported by Soros et. al. I’m also convinced that Paul will run as an independent siphoning off probably 2-3% in popular vote, essentially doing to the GOP what Nadar did to the Dems in 2000, and to a lessor extent in 2004. Ron Paul and the Paulians are bad, bad news.
31 percent is NOT, “overwhelming support” in ANY poll. The Paultards are at it again, and early this year.
22% for Romney and 7% for Palin is an even more frighting.
What do these people see in Romney?
Listen my point is that this kook couldnt get 2% of the vote thats my point the left used CPAC as a way to demoralize us with Alinksy style tactics.
Also whats interesting if you look at his comments to undermine the FBI and CIA
which has been a goal of the left and radicals for decades. I do agree with your assessment.
The same people who thought McCain was presidential timber. Out of all the names on that list, I saw maybe TWO I could have voted for. However, where were CONSERVATIVE options such as Senator DeMint, Rick Santorum, or General Petraeus?
0.04 percent in the 2008 election, actually. In a couple of meaningless primary states he got double-digits, but when it mattered early in the primary season, yeah, he was pulling Kucinich-type numbers. Which is one of the big reasons I have less tolerance for Paulistinians than I do for O-bots.
with only 2500 votes cast out of over 10,000 attendees this is no more significant than an online poll
CPAC has jumped the shark given it's pay to play concept
CPAC has become all about pay to attend
My point is that these two issues dont hold water and I believe it was a tactic used by the left to discourage conservatism and its values.
I agree wholeheartedly with your point—that’s just par for the course when dealing with the loopy left—they don’t debate or use facts and logic, but just tear their opponent down with the most base (and baseless) tactics they can.
conservatives reject his stance on foreign policy and the blame America first attitude.Guess who the MSM will support.
Don’t make the Colin Powell mistake and assume Petraeus is conservative.
Ron Paul is just another Ross Perot who is being manipulated to siphon off votes from the any conservative Republican presidential candidate in 2012. That is the Soros/DemonRAT/Obama/Communist Party "hope and change ploy".
So the majority of the people at the conservative political action committee are liberal plants? Do you have some evidence to support your conspiracy theory? Or should I put on my tin foil hat when reading your vanity posts?
You mean kind of like the for-profit Tea Party Nation convention, where Sarah Palin was reportedly paid six figures to give the keynote?
The sample size was about 2400, which is pretty good. There were a lot of kids here this year.
I took some pics of the stats as they were broken down from the dias. If the pics come out ok, I will post on my web site so you can see the demo breakdown, as I recall, kids were the biggest voting bloc.
