Kelly Clarkson gets into extended Twitter war over endorsement of Ron Paul
EW.com ^

Posted on 12/29/2011 11:24:43 AM PST by Perdogg

Last night, Kelly Clarkson got an impromptu lesson on the impact of Twitter and the secret past of Ron Paul. The “Stronger” singer’s evening took a pretty intense left-hand turn when, only an hour after letting the world know that she was enjoying making cinnamon rolls with her niece, she decided to sound off on her love for Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul.

Actually, I think it is a step up when a hollywood celeb type goes for a Libertarian.

Looks like the Liberals and the Liberal RINOs have something else to agree on....”we hate Kelly Clarkson because she support Ron Paul”.

Thank God it wasn’t RINOs like Romney or Perry...

“When Clarkson was told by several followers about Paul’s alleged history of racism and homophobia.... the singer responded that she hadn’t heard any of that.”

Add the uninformed who lock onto fads and sound bytes to the wanna-smoke-dope-legally crowd and the conspiracy kooks and that pretty much defines his support.

They are just confused by the Libe in Libertarian. They know that someone who has the title that starts with libe is for legalizing drugs. They then get tricked by the democrats into voting for the misnomer LIBEral. The drug addled hollwood and rock-n-roll crowd doesn't realize the difference between Libertarians and Liberals. They are easily confused and snowed.

Genesis 12:
1. Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee:

2.And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:

3.And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

We chose her. We as a nation voted her into where she is, and she picks he who is against Isreal ? ...is this another Harbinger ?

Who cares what she thinks? Although it does remind me of my 28 year old niece once saying...”Sheryl Crow says not to drink from water bottles left out in the sun. It causes cancer”. I said...”oh. Who do you listen to for dental advise, Bon Jovi?”...ba doom chee

Why they need the urge to even be political, or think we care.

Her responses also show how much she is in the tank for “gay” and “LGBT rights”. She won’t get a penny from my family to promote that crap.

I saw some of it this morning. I don’t support Ron Paul nor do I care for the If You’re Not With Me, You’re A RINO Statist blather of Paul’s True Believers. That said, I couldn’t help but see that Clarkson was flamed by Twitter’s Obama Brownshirt/electronic mob for daring not to bow before their false god. Face it, she would have gotten the same treatment from these people had she supported Romney, Bachmann, or Gingrich. It wouldn’t matter. Her real crime was not supporting Obama.

"Actually, I think it is a step up when a hollywood celeb type goes for a Libertarian."

Probably, but business wise it makes no sense for any entertainer to be supporting political candidates in our hyper-partisan times. Why alienate half your audience? Granted, older washed up stars can add a few years to their faded careers by coming out for something liberal - a cause or candidate. It gets them some charity crumbs thrown their way by the socialist Hollywood establishment. So that's one instance where it makes sense, I guess.

Actually, many of them are relatively small government conservatives. I came from Libertarianism, as a former liberal.

Better than spamming for nOOt or Willard..
There are many here that do that too..
nOOt just loves both Roosevelts and Wilson..
Willard’s been tricking democrats to vote for him for years..
Currently hes tricking republicans..

In the Donkey Rodeo Paul is just a clown..
Kelly Clarkson has no idea of these dynamics..
As do most so-called “conservatives”..

. Her real crime was not supporting Obama.

What is the difference between the two? They both blame America for every problem in the world, both endorse OWS, both want to allow perverts in the military, both want to destroy our military, both are racists, both are anti-Israel.
About the only difference is that Obama realized the world is a better place without OBL. The surrender monkey feels we deprived OBL of his civil right to kill innocent Americans.

I certainly agree with you on Myth Romney.

I could gag and vote for Newt — he’s a beltway tool, but he has all the right enemies, and is, I believe, a fiscal conservative.

Certainly not my first choice, though, I agree.

I have been saying for eon's Dr Kervorkian, oops I mean Dr Paul will go indy and draw all the anti war crowd and the make my pot legal crowd, many of which voted for Obama last time.

IMHO if Paul goes Indy, he gets the Stoners, Anti-War-er's and now the Hollywierders too.

He hurts Obama more if he goes Indy IMHO....
