INTERVIEW WITH MCCAIN HECKLER ADAM KOKESH. (Admits that Ron Paul delegate gave him a pass)
The American Prospect ^

Posted on 09/05/2008 12:52:41 PM PDT by mnehring

.....Why were you here in the Twin Cities? And how did you get into the Excel Center?

I was here in Minneapolis for the IVAW convention and thought I’d stick around for this.

Well I’ve been a Ron Paul supporter since the beginning of this campaign. Since before this campaign started, actually, I’ve been a fan of Paul. So I’ve got a lot of friends in the Ron Paul crowd. And he’s got a lot of delegates in there. More than the Republican Party is willing to admit. And the fact that I got into there is proof of that. One of Paul’s alternate delegates got me a guest pass....

I think he's lying. It was MSNBC.

Question is, why isn't he in jail? It's not just a trespass, it's a security risk to a Presidential nominee.

This was one of the dangers of Paul going after the anti-war moonbats. They're, well, moonbats. They do stuff like this. Free speech for me, but not for thee.

One Code Pinko said she got a pass to a Pro-Life rally and Palin’s speech from MSNBC- this is the first admission of how demonstrators got into McCain’s speech last night.

I remember he signed up here to whine about the Marine’s prosecuting him for demonstrating in his uniform (guess he though we would be sympathetic) and the FReepers tore him a new one and he was zotted.

I don't know if you want to bite into that piece of cheese. These moon bats may be crazy but they are devious as well. I'm suspect of laying blame on Ron Paul. What better way to divide and exploit.

Why would he want to blame Ron Paul? He was at Paul's counter rally the day before as one of the guest of honor speakers and introduced Jesse Ventura and Amiee Allen.

Last night on the live FR convention thread we were on, a link was posted to the Ron Paul Forums.

One poster, The Constitutionalist Commentator said
Adam Kokesh! That’s our boy!

The Paulites were aware of this POS and bragged abut him last night with his pic off the TV

I think they are blaming Ron Paul to protect their real sources. But some of them had press passes that can be traced, and they went back to MSNBC. I guess it wasn't enough to express hostility on air, they had to take direct action against their political opponents by disrupting their speeches.

They will now be heroes, suffer no penalties and get lots of air time.

Next convention needs to be help in Phoenix. The protestors will be outside in 120 degree heat while the delegates go from their air conditioned cars to their air conditioned arena. They can pass an ordinance that makes disrupting the convention a felony, and then hand the offenders over to Sheriff Joe, who will house them in his tent cities for 12 months or more.

They aren’t really blaming Ron Paul, they are blaming one of his delegates. Just like newsletters and books written in his name by ghostwriters, we can’t really blame Paul himself for what his followers did.

I understand that they are not blaming Paul directly, but the Paul delegate that they got the pass from. I just think that is a ruse. We know that some of the passes trace back to MSNBC. We also know that criminals prefer not to roll over on their friends.

Here's a better way to divide - hold your own separate convention for your assclown supporters at the same time as the RNC.

This moonbat disruptor was a guest of honor at Ron Paul's Truther/Nazi festival.

As I mentioned last night. Having delt face to face many times with Paulites and Code Pinkos,
their talking points on the war, 9/11 etc are the same.

When are some going to get it with the Paulites, Baldwin and Barrbets.
Their supporters don’t want to outright vote for Obama, so supporting the third party idiots eases their conscious, giving Obama the vote that way.

I know of at least two or three who are honest, true intention Conservatives here, who honestly believe that Paul is a Conservative hero like Reagan. Debating them, they are real Conservatives, but I believe they are projecting a lot of their beliefs on Paul. Paul is like silly-puddy (or a Rorschach test) really just a reflection of the viewers belief.

I saw several folks holding Ron Paul signs who were participating in protests of the conventions, including individuals participating in the assault on Michele Malkin.

Shouldn’t surprise anyone. He is a wingnut and, from what I have seen on here, many of his supporters are wingnuts too.

Ron Paul's catamite, nutbar Truther-In-Chief Alex Jones, is the ringleader of the assaults on Malkin.

I wonder if this is true, if actions can be taken against the delegates or whomever screened or sponsored those delegates- such as stripping them of party credentials.

We may not need to.... I am finally catching up on my RSS Feeds and it seems the Paulution is tearing itself apart right now. First you have factions splitting over Baldwin/Barr/Ventura/CFL. Then, you have a lot of mad ‘ron paul republican’ candidates in various positions pissed at the CFL for not giving them money or a voice and being shut out by a couple of establishment candidates. Finally, and this is the biggie, all of the delegates that either didn’t show up to vote, abstained from voting, or switched their vote during the roll call are being put up on pikes.

Something I mentioned on another thread, I wonder if both accusations are true? There where several protesters, Adam isn’t a part of Code Pink so he did most likely get it from whom he said (a Ron Paul delegate), maybe some of the same delegates worked with MSNBC to find these Pinkos to give their passes to. Its not like someone could freely just walk out of the RNC and up to code pink and not be yelled down. There had to be a friendly go-between that helped the protesters stand-down and know the delegates where ‘friendly to their cause’.

Oklahoma is a winner take all state and yet we had some Paul people that wanted to vote for Paul. One was in a district won by Huckabee and he released his delegates but the other one was in my district and we went solidly for McCain.

Everyone going to the Convention said they would support the nominee but guess what some “lied” but they had Sen Inhofe to deal with. Paul didn’t get enough votes in OK to mention but yet they wanted to vote for him.

Don’t think you realize what a tough time some of us have had with his people at our local Conventions. You should see the OK GOP Platform where they managed to themselves on the Platform Committee thanks to someone at OK GOP. It was only good for the trash can.

Code Pink are all-around leftists.

Paul supporters are generally your old-fashion Robert Taft conservatives: strongly anti-war and strongly anti-big federal government. Ron Paul and the vast majority of his supporters hold pretty outstanding views on domestic issues.

Several states are winner take all and this happened with. I laughed that some didn’t show up because there where at parties put on by Paul’s own counter rally, and the Paul delegates in Massachusetts freely swapped their votes to McCain when asked if they wanted to provide a unanimous show of support.

ST. PAUL, Minn. — U.S. Rep. Ron Paul received two votes from Oklahoma during Wednesday's Republican National Convention roll call, but no one heard it. The microphone was cut off after U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Tulsa, announced the 39 delegate votes for U.S. Sen. John McCain, but before he could announce the two votes for Paul.

You know, that is actually kinda low for Mr. Inhofe. It is not like Paul was going to win the convention vote or anything. I especially found it bad that the speaker woman didn't mention Paul's name when he got votes from Alaska, Washington, West Virginia and Oregon.

Paul recieved 1.2 million primary votes. It doesn't do anyone any good to push that wing of the conservative movement under the bus while allowing a leftist like Joe Lieberman to freely speak at the convention.

Don’t think you realize what a tough time some of us have had with his people at our local Conventions. You should see the OK GOP Platform where they managed to themselves on the Platform Committee thanks to someone at OK GOP. It was only good for the trash can.

What'd they do? Add an anti-federal reserve plank to the platform like some Paul supporters reportedly did in Idaho? Oh no....
