Yeah, so I told Adam Weinstein that I hated his lying ass when he “friended” me on Facebook, and that it would blow up in his face someday. It only took a few weeks for him to get his eyebrows singed. He posted this shit that he wrote as Mother Jones’ “national security writer” this morning;
Weinstein perpetuates the lie that we’ve talked about several times that the proof that the military supports Ron Paul because more people who identify themselves as members of the military give money to Paul than any other candidate. That’s complete horseshit, because any goober off of the street can give money to the Paul campaign can identify themselves as members of the military on the form. Given the history of Paulians and their internet tomfoolery, I wouldn’t put it past them to have an organized effort to do just that in this case.
Weinstein goes on to “report” that the reason most members of the military support Paul is because they’re anti-war…and who does he interview to prove that point? Adam Kokesh of IVAW and Jake Diliberto of Rethink Afghanistan – both of them are anti-war, always have been since they found a political niche for themselves.
And Weinstein’s proof for military support of Paul was the “Veterans for Ron Paul” rally from this past weekend that I attended. As I reported, there were less than a thousand people at the rally, then the group weeded out veterans from non-veterans for their march on the White House and had barely 500. I didn’t see Weinstein write about the actual numbers. So out of millions of veterans in this country, because 500 showed up, we’re all Ron Paul supporters. Fuck you, Adam.
Then Weinstein makes the most egregious statement of all;
Soldiers tend to see Paul as understanding the pressures they face better than the other candidates because he’s the only one in the group who served in uniform, as a flight surgeon in the Air Force and Air National Guard during the Vietnam era. The libertarian’s service gives him “street cred,” Kwiatkowski noted.
Yeah, with my two decades of service in the infantry, the person who knows me best is the Air Force OB/GYN. I don’t even think Adam, a Navy veteran, can identify with me. But mostly because he’s a lying, talentless hack.
Yeah, we all know that the media wants Ron Paul to be the Republican candidate because he can never win against Obama, but Paul is a racist crackpot and his followers are even more crackpottish. To throw members of the military involuntarily into that clown car ride is beyond the pale.
UPDATE: By the way , be sure to read the comments at the article. Supposedly because you all support Ron Paul it’s proof that you’re all racists. Did I say “Fuck you, Adam” already?
