So Are You Offended By This?
The Hayride ^ | 22 December 2011 | MacAoidh

I am. Anybody who supports Ron Paul after seeing this isn’t just not a Republican; they’re not a patriotic American. George McGovern would find this guy’s foreign policy borderline treason.

Here is the link to the embedded video:

This Ron Paul ad is a must-see. It's 100% vintage KGB messaging, and it's reprehensible. This is the most atrocious bunch of anti-American propaganda I have seen and it was written and produced by the Ron Paul campaign. It's just disgusting. Closest comparison I can make is to Jane Fonda. Ron Paul is the al Qaeda candidate. It isn't just an attack on our foreign policy, it's a direct attack on our military. It's time to stop ignoring Ron Paul or making fun of his supporters. It's time to start calling him and them out for what they are. I am calling you all out for what you are: Modern Day Jane Fondas. I don't know how "Inspire", the Al Qaeda magazine could have produced a more helpful piece for their cause. No wonder Ron Paul has been all over the Iranian news agencies--Press TV and ISNA--since he ran in 2008.

Ron Paul is a veteran. He’s not attacking the military. What he is attacking is unconstitutional action on the part of President Obama.

I have no problem with the truth, especially when it is true and when it is biblical and that is what this message is, true & biblical. It is true the foreign troops ARE stationed and trained on our military bases within the borders of the US. It is true that our foreign presence is overextended to the point that is has effectively deteriorated our borders and national sovereignty that both are on the edge of the cliff & ready to cease to exist.

Maybe it's time more people start reading and studying the US Constitution as Ron Paul has. His views are right in line with the founding fathers, neither to the left or to the right, but spot on.

No, to TRULY be offended, I have to encounter a worthy intellect in opposition to me. To answer your question directly LSUfan

Ron Paul, and the bong brigade surely are not. They are humorous only.

I am not agreeing or disagreeing with the message or whatever candidate.

That was a powerful and effective video presentation.

Let’s hope that a respectable conservative uses such in his or her campaign.

His attitude towards our military makes me sick. I don’t need to watch the video.

After this debacle on the SS Tax cut who the hell wants to be called a Republican. I was not a Ron Paul fan but he looks good compared to Obama and Romney. May send him some cash at least he has principle.

hmm, interesting and accurate reference to Rome..

back in my libertarian days - long ago - loved RP, then started listening to the otd (other then democrats). people call him crazy...... but is it possible he knows more than we do about certain things?
i have a couple of beloved former Marine friends that are in Iraq security now and they are both strong RP supporters. very intelligent, pro-military, but they love RP. when i ask them why, they both say RP is just right on the Constitution. not making this up. and they are both War Veterans and are proud of their service...
just find it interesting ...
thanks for posting

Every time I see Ron Paul on television I expect him to say, “pull my finger” and the whole Paulbot crowd to go wild with laughter.

The part that he left out was the part where the host country put their own people in trash shredders and gassed women and children by the thousands, and raped and murdered women as a suppression method, and don’t forget they attacked an ally and were on a ceasefire agreement while firing at our aircraft. In Afghanistan, uh,.....we were ATTACKED! I don’t really give a crap what the locals think.

Being “offended” is something the Left does. Instead, just exercise your right to vote for someone else.

Sounds like Ron Paul (pot) is sucking up for the over seas campaign money. Iranian money.

Ron Paul has some good points, especially fiscally. On foreign policy, he is way off base in presenting the mess in the world as America's fault and in saying we must be friendly and make nice with Iran. In the debates, his rant came off whiney and just a little cracked.

Yes, the US military is over-extended. No, we should not be into nation building. Our civilian and military leaders have committed our military to too many places and then tied their hands with unrealistic rules of engagement.

As for Paul ranting this video claiming our presence is like the Chinese or Russians being over here and imposing martial law, that is ridiculous. In Iraq and Afghanistan, for instance, the different tribes and the dictators killed more than we ever did. Iraq needed to have something done, and in spite of all the hand wringing over no WMS there actually were some both in Iraq and Syria. They just were not nuclear. Germ warfare will annihilate a populace as quickly as a nuke.

As for Afghanistan, and Obama's (and others) claims THAT was where we needed to be, I could never see it. This is a mountainous nation of tribes who join together in different configurations for different reasons, and NEVER see things cohesively. Iraq, too is divided into three tribes or peoples, and as we are leaving, they are back at it again. So will Afghanistan be.

But back to Ron Paul--his supporters are kind of like the peaceniks of the 60's--no more money and blood expended. That doesn't mean we can just sit down on our hands and make nice, like Obama asking--asking! the Iraquis to return our drone. He should have been proactive and had it destroyed, but this admin would have probably sold the technology, anyway.
