Skip to comments.Ron Paul's Poisonous Partisans
Posted on 09/17/2011 9:13:02 AM PDT by Interesting Times
Some of Ron Paul's most avid (some say "rabid") supporters are not friends of America. The Marxist group "Code Pink" are frequent and vociferous supporters of the good congressman, as are "Iraq Veterans against the War," a Soros-funded group that is sometimes violently opposed to any American intervention overseas, no matter how justified it may be.
Code Pink, headed up by Medea Benjamin, shows up at any anti-American gathering that happens to have media (no pun intended) coverage scheduled. That organization is frequently joined by IVAW in its pursuit of America-bashing.
Now, Rep. Paul cannot be held totally responsible for who attends his rallies and who organizes his Iowa Straw Poll effort, but the public should not be kept in the dark about who it is that has become so close to the congressman.

An unsavory alliances ping.
That ad in the Austin Chronicle shows how low he's falling...this rag is straight progressive/Marxist, and asks about Perry's sex life on a full page? Without a word of rebuke from this scrawny would-be Woodrow Wilson?
It also makes me deeply suspicious of his son.
I think other elements of the left are afraid of Paul because he’s diverging from their marxism.

If he's working with Code Pink, IVAW, Adam Kokesh and ANSWER, he hasn't diverged very far.
Paul hasn’t morphed (you must be confusing him with Rick “I love hate crimes laws” Perry) into anything. He’s taken the same foreign policy positions for decades. He is hated by both left and right because he challenges both the welfare and warfare states. Hence, hatred of Ron Paul is the one thing Fox and MSNBC have in common.
No doubt Ron Paul has some strange ideas and some strange followers.
ON THE ISSUE OF THE FEDERAL RESERVE HE IS ABSOLUTELY CORRECT!
I think conservatives are afraid of Paul because he’s anti-war, and so they look for ways to link him to marxism.
Working for Code Pink? They are all for Obama’s Wars.
Draw your own conclusions? There's no question about it. Every one of the large "anti-war" coalitions was founded and organized by either Workers World Party (ANSWER, Troops Out Now), Communist Party USA (United for Peace and Justice, Peace Action) or the Revolutionary Communist Party (World Can't Wait, Not In Our Name, Refuse and Resist).
Revolution interview with ["Peace Mom"] Cindy Sheehan: October 29, 2005:
['Revolution' is the official newspaper of the Revolutionary Communist Party]
The RCP calls for the violent overthrow of the U.S. government...
From the website of the Revolutionary Communist Party (revcom.us or rwor.org) :
"Create Public Opinion, Seize Power: We are preparing minds and organizing forces for the time when there is a major crack in the system, whenever it comes and wherever it comes from: an opening that makes it possible to bring the future Revolutionary Army of the Proletariat (R.A.P.) into the field and wage a revolutionary armed struggle that actually has a chance of winning.
And we have said that building our party itself is the most important part of organizing forces for revolution. This is true now, and it is true looking forward to the creation of that future R.A.P. and the waging of that armed struggle.":
For a “non-politician” , he’s been in DC for decades.
He decries earmarks, and yet puts them into bills(and crows about voting against them later)
He claims being pro defense, yet does not disavow Code Pink and other anti-American groups.
His supporters do obnoxious BS that he doesn’t tell them to knock it off
And we’re supposed to pick him as our candidate?
Hogwash! Those groups generally make an “exception” for Obama’s wars, hence they are not really antiwar in real sens. Antiwar.com, the best read antiwar site today was founded by libertarians. Prior to Vietnam, libertarians (and conservatives) played a key role in antiwar movements ranging from the Anti-Imperialist League of 1899 to the American First Committee.
Code Pink seems to be the league of frumpy women.
Thanks for the ping!
I got the impression that the LP was started by people who hated the Vietnam conflict, the war on drugs, the left, and Nixon’s economic & monetary policies.
“ON THE ISSUE OF THE FEDERAL RESERVE HE IS ABSOLUTELY CORRECT!”
The gold stardard? How do you grow the economy on that? Mine more gold?
Ron Paul is a raving nutball.
All I can say is that in this election cycle, Ron Paul has attacked Republicans far more than he has attacked Obama.
Tea Party Follows Ku Klux Klan Ideology
Founding CBC Member: KKK, Tea Party interchangeable
Rachel Maddow compares tea party attendees to KKK
This is the same tactic this author, you and many other posters here on FR are willing to stoop to. If you don’t want it done to you, don’t do it to others ... I believe that’s the Golden Rule isn’t it.
Ron Paul would be a nobody in the democrat party, hence he uses the Republican Party to taunt conservatives. Course the GOP has preached the ‘big’ tent gospel until they became a TARP. I do not see a dimes worth of difference in Paul and lord McCain. The conservatives to them are like the wife they pretend to love, but spend most nights in bed with a liberal. Serial adulterers, politically speaking.
Ron Paul is a raving nutball! Deal with it.
Sure nuf one of em popped up here and not trying to hide under Palin’s skirt.... for now.
You wildeyed guys fool no one any longer. Even though many may not be as anti-American, you still blindly follow the lil Martian tootin his Pan pipe playing ya the libertarian lullaby.
Look Skippy, name one lie I made.
What's "hogwash". I clearly indicated that they aren't really anti-war. How could they be when they worship monsters like Mao, Stalin and Che. These aren't actually 'men of peace'. The commie "peace" groups never met a leftist uprising or overthrow that they didn't love and support. It's only AMERICA and our allies military actions that they oppose.
Paul also opposes interventions in Korea, Formosa and everywhere else. I don’t think he cares who backs his views. This may be nuts but he believes his economic and foreign policy views are best for America.
BTW, where does all his cash come from?
So you don’t mind that Paul called Reagan a failure.. To bad that he doesn’t practice what he preaches. Never mind that he backed Chuckie Baldwin, Alan “The Loser” Keyes, Ralph Nader, and Cynthia McKinney in the 08 elections..

Cindy Sheehan endorses Ron Paul over Barack Obama
Sheehan: I dont want to even discuss who is likely to be the Republican nominee, because besides having little foreign policy difference between any of them and Hillary, anyone of them would be a complete disaster on matters of war and peace, with the possible exception of Ron Paul (Tx).
And generally his proponents on FR spend most of their time tearing down republicans and trying to divide and disrupt.
Ron Paul is a failure too. Our currency value is being depleted and we going broke as world-wide interventionist.
"The co-founder of the radical anti-war group Code Pink [Jodie Evans] has bundled more than $50,000 for Sen. Barack Obamas presidential campaign, and pro-troops groups are demanding that he return the money."
Hard to say whether she got screwed or finally got laid.
“The gold stardard? How do you grow the economy on that? Mine more gold?”
A currency could be based on Gold & Silver & Oil & Land, etc. If the government needed to expand the money supply they could sell some land, etc. But the money would ultimately be a credit receipt for something of value.
The system we have now is based on debt. Money is created when someone goes into debt, usually the Government, but also individuals when they take out a loan. When the entity can’t repay the debt the money is DESTROYED and the money supply shrinks.
The system we have now is leading to a tremendous disaster.
By the way Do you really think that if people have to spend 10% more a year on the same goods and services that the economy grew 10%. Most of the economic growth is an illusion based on inflation.
LOOK for ways??
Oh, good lord
Heere, Google RON PAUL STORMFRONT MONEYBOMB
ANY loser who POSES for pictures with STORMFRONT deserves to be exposed!
No, let’s tell like it is. The only war that the Anti-war groups hate is a war the US is winning.
Rabid is the right description and we have some of them, right here on FreeRepublic. They might even be along shortly to attack me for saying this.
Unsavory indeed, and it’s sad to see so many people who should know better adopt the John Kerry, Jane Fonda, Bill Ayers, and company modus operandi.
McCain voted for TARP
Bump for the truth.
Big deal.. Ron Paul hasn’t done s**t in Congress.
