Ron Paul Slams America: We’re “Building War Propaganda Again Iran,”....
Weazel Zippers ^ | 12/15/2011 | ZIP

How would I deal with the threat or the so-called threat of the Iranians, that they are going to disrupt the oil supply?

Well I’d be provoking them a lot less because they’re reacting to the provoking of the West saying “we’re gonna put on sanctions”. We have them surrounded with nuclear weapons and we’re claiming that they’re gonna build a nuclear weapon and there’s no evidence for this.

So we’re just looking for trouble. We’re building the war propaganda against Iran just as we did against Iraq.

And people want to go to war against Iran. And I think they’re reacting to the provocations of so many other people saying that “we’re liable to bomb you because you are building a nuclear weapon.” But our CIA doesn’t confirm that nor does the UN confirm that.

So they’re acting actually in a rational manner because they’re saying “they’re gonna attack us and start bombing us”. They have to say “well, we don’t have any nuclear weapons, we can’t really defend ourselves. So we might sink a boat, sink a ship out there in the Persian Gulf”, hoping that we might back off.

Criticizing government policy is not the same as “slamming America” If it were, we here would be the biggest slammers.

He already said that the sanctions on Iran are an act of war by the US against Iran. As usual, Fraud Paul sees everyone else as the poor victims of us.

Saying we are engaged in Propaganda is “slamming America”.

Saying there is no evidence Iran is seeking a nuke is just delusional.

If we worked in some antisemitism it would be a Ron Paul TRIFECTA!

Slamming America, delusional AND antisemitic!

Saying the government is engaged in propaganda is either right or wrong. It is NOT “slamming America”. So you never criticize the government. You are about the only American that cowed. Opposing aid to foreign countries is not antisemitic. Criticizing Israel is not antisemitic.

For some historical perspective 2007 campaign:

In interviews, Paul, a U.S. congressman from Texas, often says that he doesn’t endorse the views of all of his supporters or donors.

Continued -In an interview with Neil Cavuto from Fox News on Dec. 19, Paul addressed the question of returning a $500 donation from white supremacist Ron Black, the founder of Stormfront: “Why give it back to him for bad purposes? I don’t even know his name. … He sent the money for my beliefs. … If he is promoting my viewpoints and my attitudes, why give it back to him when he has bad viewpoints and I don’t endorse anything he endorses?”

It is this distancing that has upset White. In his letter, White continues:

“For his spokesman to call white racialism a ‘small ideology’ and claim white activists are ‘wasting their money’ trying to influence Paul is ridiculous…” He adds in another part of the letter, “Both Congressman Paul and his aides regularly meet with members of the Stormfront set, American Renaissance, the Institute for Historical Review, and others” at a Thai restaurant in Arlington, Va., “usually on Wednesdays.”

This is not the first time Paul’s alleged connections to white nationalists have been an issue. Michigan Messenger reported in November on other allegations.

Actually, he doesn’t even acknowledged terrorism, the way he acts, he treats it like a petty crime. He called it piracy once.

And for two decades he allowed newsletters to be written in his name full of racist crap. And no, I don’t buy that he didn’t know about them. Not only did it go on for so long but it was also written in the first person telling personal stories.

Ah yes, the typical Paulite “explain it away” technique.
Just like when Paul said that we got 9/11 because of our mideast policies, Pauls sycophant acolytes said he merely ‘miss-spoke’.
And when he said that the Bush administration was gleeful over 9/11, they tried variously to claim that wasn’t what he said, meant, etc etc.
Then they used an Obama minion wording to explain the Paultardian statement, “never let a crisis go to waste” thus forgetting just who said it and who uses bloody shirts for rabble rousing. [that would be the left for your info]

And now we have “slamming America is not slamming America”.
Doublespeak.
Every time Ron Paul says something stupid, his minions tie themselves into knots trying to explain it or apoligize for it.

They also cannot explain his support for homosexuals.

This is kind of old "news", really. We have heard the beating of drums for war with Iran for years.

Nothing new here, folks.

As you were.

No, propaganda is a word with a high ‘emotionality index’ - like calling the 0bama administration a “regime”.

Being critical of American foreign or domestic policy is one thing - saying we were ‘gleeful’ after 9-11 eager to start a war against Iraq and Afghanistan- saying our MidEast policies brought about 9-11 - saying that our CORRECT assessment of Iran's actions in pursuit of nuclear weapons is “propaganda”; is ALL “slamming America” - not being critical or having legitimate criticisms - but a direct attack on our motivations and character as a nation.

Ron Paul does a lot more than just oppose foreign aid and criticize Israel - he gives aid and comfort - and receives likewise - from the most virulent antisemites.

And he is not just a hateful loon, like his followers, he is materially incorrect about the “evidence” in regards to Iran and nuclear weapons.

Does this idiot actually think those uranium centrifuges were for “peaceful” nuclear power?

Where is he slamming America? In this post, he is only slamming the conduct of the British usurper Obama Administration. Are you saying the Obama regime is legit and American? That sounds very anti-American to me.

Opposing foreign aid to Israel or any other (hopefully all other) country/ies is common sense and not anti-semitism. Criticising Israel is not anti-semitism. Fair enough.

Bear in mind, as even the paleosurrenderman concedes, that the United States pushing a phony "peace process" on Israel as a price of foreign aid is NOT common sense. Israel should reclaim its independence and whack Iran as necessary. Ditto the Palestinian anything, Hamas, Al Qaeda, and every other gang of Islamofascist thugs. If the United States wants a piece of that action, that is not a bad idea either.

Pushing, as El Run Paulie does constantly, for a situation in which Iran WILL have nuclear weapons, WILL NOT relent on its stated intention to wipe Israel off the map (and not with washcloths but with nukes), and can be believed by any rational person, will at least stand as anti-semitism until any even more legitimate example comes along. El Run is not concerned in the least over the imminent threat faced by the Israeli people who have long been American allies. When Israel is nuked by Paulie's Iranian pals, "OOOOOPS!" just won't suffice as a response. Nuking Iran in retaliation, while emotionally somewhat satisfying, won't really suffice either. Absolutely preventing Ahmadinejad and the mullahs from nuking Israel is a far more desirable response than letting Iran nuke Israel or our wiping Iran off the face of the earth in retaliation.

One more item: Drilling here, drilling now, using fracking as necessary everywhere that oil may be found in the US, taking control by Navy if necessary of the oil resources of the Gulf of Mexico and the waters off Cuba, crushing Obozo, reversing his policies that try to have Americans freeze in the dark while increasingly impoverished by EPA thwarting of drilling, will effective impose the best of sanctions against Iran and every Islamofascist oil satrapy in existence. Bye, bye OPEC!!! $1.00/gallon gasoline is the most eloquent response. Let 'em eat oil soaked sand in Iran.

One final item: When actual conservatives (which leaves out Ron Paul who is just a modern version of cowardly crackpot Neville Chamberlain) criticize the regime in Washington or any other manifestation of tyranny in America, that is one thing. When anti-American serial crackpots like Paulie continually beat their gums trying to eliminate our nation's defenses in favor of letters of marque and reprisal (and maybe blunderbusses and rowboats) and about how our enemies are only being reasonable in being our enemies, that is a quite different thing. Especially in time of war (which does not require magic words or a fill-in-the-blanks form passed as a Congressional Declaration of War) when Congressional resolutions approving and funding wars will certainly suffice whatever Code Pink or paleoPaulie may imagine.

Of course opposing aid isn't antisemitism, and I doubt is antisemitic though he's clearly anti Israel, sympathetic to arab revisionism.

Leaving aside his fetis with neocons and the Likud party, and the "Jewish Lobby", the only powerful lobby in DC, there's his view of the region as expressed in his book.

He does acknowledge a few hundred thousand were expelled a few millenia ago, and that a few families stayed. And unlike the Arab world that the Jews who moved to Palestine (don't think he knows that was the name for the Jewish Homeland, stupidity when you're commenting on an important topic. However he describes Zionism as a movement of Orthodox Jews (Herzl would be surprised as would have most of the "Orthodox" of the day) who wanted to separate secular European Jews from the culture they had assimilated into so well. Secular European Jews fully integrated and accepted into late 19th century Europe, like Alfred Dreyfus. Is Paul stupid, or a revisionist.

Then his history conveniently skips forward to post WWI, where the UN decided to partition Palestine. Apparently out of thin air, no Mandate, no partitioning at San Remo, no pogrums. The UN just up and decided to do it.

Probably most telling is his experience meeting a young palestinian attending school in the US. Her story about how her family was thrown off land in her family for centuries. To build Israeli settlements. This happened in the early 1950s, clear proof that Ron considers Tel Aviv a settlement. Like San Antonio I guess. But what the heck, it was just a group of people taking land from others on the specious arguement that G-d told them to do it. Classic pro-Arab fairy tale from the Congressman.

BTW, his #1 book to read on the topic, Jimmy Carter's Apartheid work. It's on the Code Pink suggested reading list too.
