Ron Paul tweets about SEAL sniper’s death: ‘He who lives by the sword dies by the sword’
The Daily Caller ^ | 2/4/2013

Posted on 02/04/2013 11:30:44 AM PST by GVnana

Former congressman and libertarian icon Ron Paul tweeted a startling reaction to the death of SEAL sniper Chris Kyle on Monday:

'Chris Kyle's death seems to confirm that "he who lives by the sword dies by the sword." Treating PTSD at a firing range doesn't make sense'

Ron Paul couldn’t qualify to be the toilet bowl for any marine.

Shove it, Paul.

Up your smelly Obama.

The man is too deluded to notice he sounds just like your average DUmpster poster. Their reaction was nearly identical.

Ron Paul 1488, the Stormfront candidate, accepted money and an endorsement from white nationalists.

Yeah, I do say the “lives by the sword, dies by the sword” comment was “insensitive” — to use worn-out liberal-speak.

But he does raise a good point as to why is he helping treat PTSD at a shooting range. Anybody have any ideas?

WTF is “Ron Paul” implying?
That Chris Kyle brought his death on himself by choosing to serve this nation and do what it asked of him?

“Ron Paul” is not fit to speak this hero’s name.

Below is from today’s Patriot Post..

“Chris Kyle, RIP

Former Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, a Patriot from Texas and author of the outstanding book, “American Sniper,” was killed Saturday while assisting fellow veterans suffering from PTSD. Chris served with the SEAL Team 3 Sniper Element Charlie platoon, and was the most lethal sniper in U.S. history, with 160 confirmed kills and another 95 probables. He was known to his enemies as Al-Shaitan Ramad (The Devil of Ramadi).

In 2008, near Sadr City, Chris neutralized an RPG-carrying insurgent at more than 2,000 meters with his Lapua Magnum .338 PGM. During his four combat tours, Chris was shot twice and survived six IED explosions. He left military service three years ago after earning two Silver Stars, five Bronze Stars with Valor, two Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medals, and one Navy and Marine Corps Commendation. He has devoted much of the last three years to working with fellow vets suffering from PTSD.

Chris leaves behind his wife Taya, two children, and a long list of family and friends. He was a tireless defender of Liberty and the Second Amendment, and he will be sorely missed”

I was wondering when someone was going to say that, but I expected it from DU, not Ron Paul.

I'm only guessing here, but it seems Kyle was trying to help someone, using the skill he knows best, a "Get back up on the horse" treatment if you will.
And then that person turned on him and killed him.
I expected glee from the left, remember what they said about Pat Tillman?
But a Republican congressman?! Shame on you Ron.

Ron Paul reminds me of one of those Jim Baker type TV evangelists . Some of the stuff he says almost makes sense but after a few minutes of listening you realize he is just crazy as a moonbat.

This is the kind of stuff Ron Paul thinks. It isn't a surprise coming from the man who thinks the traitor Bradley Manning is a hero and a patriot.

The paulbots here need to seriously re-evaluate their support of this loathsome worm.

I sure hope Rand disavows this sickening crap. He needs to make very clear that he is not his father, and be willing to offend the paultard cultists and conspiracy theorists that worship his father.

Paul seems to be in bed with the left-wing anti-war crowd.

But here’s how I feel.

Chris Kyle and all of our military deserve to be part of actions that are fought in the tradition of Generals like Patton and LeMay.

The United States has been fighting in police actions under the rules of international law since World War II.

Our soldiers fight under “rules of engagement” with their hands tied behind their back.

The ‘wars’ in Iraq and Afghanistan are United Nations sanctioned police actions.

Military units of various nations are now used to police the world for “world order” and not to defeat enemies completely on battlefields.

Iran now has a Shia government in Iraq under its thumb and Pakistan harbors the Taliban fighting in Afghanistan.

Those nations (Iran and Pakistan) should have gotten the Patton-LeMay treatment, but won’t and never will with the Democrat and RINO Republican leadership in the Nixon-Carter-Bush-Clinton-Obama tradition.

We are fighting UN wars now, not American wars and to oppose UN wars causes RINO’s to question patriotism.

I’ve got my patriotism and want my soliders to fight for America, not the UN force in Afghanistan called ISAF.

I like Rand Paul very and think he might make an excellent President; however, sometimes, I pause and wonder how far the apple has fallen from the tree. Hopefully, very far in this case.

This, more than anything, says what Ron Paul is about. His followers think he is a peacenik, but there seem to be only two countries’ wars he despises: the USA and Israel. He is no patriot. He may have been at one time, but he went off the rails.

I searched. What can I say?

Simple searches are the best. There are many different headlines, often for the same article since some papers like to write their own.

Think of one or two words that almost everyone would put in the title.

sniper

Also, search with the upper right hand corner search and set it to 'title.'

“But he does raise a good point as to why is he helping treat PTSD at a shooting range. Anybody have any ideas?”

Yes... this AM on Fox & Friends, a close friend of the XNavy Seal mentioned that it helps tremendously to assist the person with PTSD to accompany him/her to do something familiar. He said it’s like taking an X basketball star to shoot hoops. You want to put the person back into an area of his life that he was trained skillfully for and that he would have been comfortable doing. The man I saw this AM was very sincere in that statement, as they asked him exactly your question.

In one single utterance this stupid little prick has insulted everyman and woman who has fought, bled and died for America since April 1775 to Afganistan today. He has insulted a brave and fearsome America soldier who made it possible for this waste of human tissue to live as he does and who has sent many a worthless Saracen bastard off to “Alpha Whiskey Romeo’’(Allahs Waiting Room’’) I’m going to get this pricks number in DC and let his staff know what FReeper “jmacusa thinks of his worthless hide.

I have certainly supported some of the ideas Ron Paul has championed in the past, and some aspects of the libertarian point of view. While I'm not "insane", there is nothing to defend in Ron Paul's comment. Its just insensitive, stupid, and completely wrong, and reflects very badly on Mr. Paul. He should be ashamed of himself, and if he had any honor or common sense he'd promptly apologize and retract his idiotic comment.

I can't imagine anybody but some troll would try to defend such an indefensible and stupid comment.
