On Monday, militant Ron Paul supporters joined forces with Occupy Wall Street protesters to harass former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum.
Fox News reported that Gingrich was forced to cancel an appearance at his New Hampshire campaign headquarters when Ron Paul supporters and Occupy Wall Street protesters swarmed the entrance:
About 40 protesters showed up Monday evening carrying placards reading "Ron Paul" and "Occupy." One played speeches by presidential candidate Ron Paul from a loud speaker.
Gingrich spokesman R.C. Hammond says the former House speaker's private security detail decided to cancel the event because of security concerns regarding the entrance and exit to the building.
According to Fox, about 75 volunteers and supporters were inside, waiting to hear and meet the candidate.
On the same day, ABC News reported that Rick Santorum, his wife and two of his children were similarly targeted by the same coalition:
Supporters and press mobbed the candidate as he made his way around the packed restaurant and bar here. As he exited his final primary eve event, he was surrounded by a mix of protesters from the Occupy movement and Ron Paul supporters.
As he walked out of Jillians in downtown Manchester, his staff surrounded him and the protesters tried to form a circle around the former Pennsylvania senator. They chanted, Bigot, bigot! and Shame, shame! as he made his way to his car....

I don’t understand why Iowa and NH are so important? Who annointed them primary primary-deciders?
If the Republican Party had any cojones they’d kick Ron Paul out of the party. But they don’t.
“If the Republican Party had any cojones theyd kick Ron Paul out of the party. But they dont.”
There is a movement beginning at the grassroots to do so. These jerks never vote GOP anyway.
Godless anarchists cannot tolerate those with religion and/or a moral compass.
Do you really think Paul has anything to do with what these people do?
“Ron Paul supporters, OWS protesters”
Yeah, keep telling me what a stalwart conservative Republican Congressman Ron Paul is.”
Talk about an unholy alliance.
Birds of a feather.....
Time for the GOP to tell that lying liberal crackpot to take a hike.
I’m beginning to find that Paulistinians are just as divisive as the Obamabots. Pretty soon, we will have widepread rioting & infighting in the U.S. I thought it was bad when Obama was inaugurated, but I’m seeing that was just jr high.
These Paulbots/OWSers aren’t locals, by and large. I believe there will be some the same faces at other states’ primaries. They’re anarchists, and definitely not Republicans.
Why would they? He sucks up enough "conservatives" to ensure Romney a plurality.
“Do you really think Paul has anything to do with what these people do?”
Yes. He speaks their language. Do you follow the word of Mohammed? Does Mohamhock influence his followers?
You’re seriously comparing the two?
The Dem0crat Party, the Dem0crat Party media and leftist/liberal pseudo-journalists have anointed the N.H. and Iowa as the primary deciders. They have been doing it for decades. They even try to choose the Republican Party candidate. And sometimes they are successful at doing it!
Why are the Obama/Soros organized Occupy people working so hard to support Ron Paul and harass conservatives?
Why has the Soros funded Code Pink (which calls American troops terrorists and worked with Muslim groups to kill American servicemen) endorsed Ron Paul and why are they working to support him?
Why is Ron Paul working with the Soros funded group C.R.E.W. to spreed lies about Santorum?
Why is Ron Paul spending millions of dollars to attack Newt and Santorum yet Ron Paul never attacks Obama?
Why did Ron Paul create a committee run by Soros operatives to recommend cuts in defense spending?
As a combat obgyn, Paul gave OWS their first pap smear.
Again, Palin and DeMint tell us to be more inclusive when it comes to supporters of Paul. So, let me be the first to welcome OWers into the more open and inclusive Repulbican fold.
Let me know if their is anything I can do? Maybe pay for your college loans or give you a car or a house?
YES! He panders to them and encourages them. He said that he sympathizes with the Occupy parasites and he encourages the type of people that follow him like a cult by going on whacko conspiracy shows, weasel-word answers inferring he agrees with the 9/11 truther nuts, supports the proliferation of drugs. So, yes, he encourages the kook fringe by sucking them into his group of followers. He loves their rabid and offensive actions.
Do you think it is just some funny coincidence that Code Pink has endorsed Ron Paul? Do you think it is just a crazy coincidence that the Obama/Soros organized Occupy people just happen to be supporting Ron Paul and working for Ron Paul? Do you think it is just a coincidence that Ron Paul spends millions of dollars attacking conservatives like Newt and Santorum but never attacks Obama? Do you think it is just a coincidence that that Ron Paul is working closely with the Soros funded group C.R.E.W. to spread lies about Santorum?
Of course the Occupy people, the Code Pink people and the Ron Paul people are working together. THEY ARE WORKING TO GET OBAMA REELECTED AND TO DISCREDIT CONSERVATIVES. It's not that difficult to figure out.
Lemme add one more question to your list:
Why has RP encouraged everyone to drop out of the primaries EXCEPT Mitt Romney???
Ron Paul never attacks Mitt Romney or Obama. He only attacks conservatives. His goal is to get Romney the Republican nomination and to get Obama reelected. He also may run as a third party candidate to help Obama.
“Ron Paul never attacks Mitt Romney or Obama.”
Glad its not just me.
So you think he’s directing these people, or they are acting on their own?
Paul is dangerously off his rocker. Imho, he will do anything to get elected.
Nuff said, right there.
How would you propose he stop them from acting in any manner they want?
Joined forces...? Or one and the same?
Why aren’t they harassing Romney?
Romney would seem much more the 1% that they abhor.
I'm not holding my breath.
Isn’t that always the excuse? They broke FEC laws raising millions for him? “He didn’t know!” Who paid for the blimp? “Wasn’t us!” Etc., etc...
Guess when you are a loser nutcase you have a lot of free time to act like an idiot.............
Ron Paul wouldn’t want to change their behavior. Frankly, I wouldn’t want them to change either. I think they need to be on full display for mainstream America to see what follows him.
Paulistas & OWS freaks + Nuts & Flakes.
When the Queer Nation types join, we will have:
Nuts & Flakes AND Fruits = Collectivist Grainola.
I’m not vagan, so pass me the eggs and bacon.
But, I’ll pass on Paul and OWS.
Yeah, so? I could show up in a Cain bus and he wouldn’t know it until after.
If this is true, and if the bus was officially owned by the campaign and if this was coordinated in any way by the campaign, this is a federal crime under Title 18 of the US Election Code regarding interfering by means of intimidation with political campaigns. It may even go one step further if it is found that Paul himself knew in any way about this as it would be both coordination with an outside group as well the fact he is a congressman so it would be a double whammy as lawmakers are also prohibited by law from interfering with a campaign.
“Youre seriously comparing the two?”
Sorry, was that too obtuse? I was talking about how people are influenced by others’ speeches and thoughts, which you found preposterous. You been hanging around chat rooms too much. Where did I make a comparison between the men? If I were to compare a man and a woman with similar attributes, would you accuse me of calling them dykes and fairies? Please.
. . . . Are both unreasonably extreme in their views, and most will end up voting for Obama,
I partiallly disagree. The question isn't whether it's a crime, rather whether the criminals were official paulistinians. It's a crime.
Will the Holder Justice Dept investigate?
Doubt it, they haven't in the past.
Should have added for the benefit of the paulies, if you wonder if I’m making a moral equivalence between paulestinian thugs and new black panther party thugs, absolutely, I am.
