That is to say the Ron Paul Truthers. The ones who suspect that the Twitter page of one “Ron Paul” is not done by “Ron Paul.”
Ron Paul Twitter Account
Is it Ron actually running this? Because this last tweet is pretty offensive…
That is really odd.
The ‘lives by the sword dies by the sword’ seems very un-Ron-ish, under the circumstances, but the frustration at taking a guy with PTSD to a firing range could be a doctor thing.
I’m thinking not.
He seems to have some people who insert leftist cultural stuff into his things (read the immigration chapter in Liberty Defined, and I am not talking about the policy position, but they ‘they have a better work standard’ gratuitous slap in the face stuff’) I don’t like leftist red meat any more than rightist red meat, and Ron doesn’t typically use ANY. So, I don’t know.
I think it’s someone Ron trusts (and therefore doesn’t keep an eye on) trying to discredit Ron and make Rand the face of the “liberty movement”.
Go and enjoy the meltdown at the Ron Paul Forums.
If you decide you want to get thoroughly pissed off instead, after the jump I give you stuff to be pissed about from other Paulians regarding Chris Kyle.
I warn you in the absolute strongest terms that what you will read after the jump will incense you beyond belief. I mean that people. If you are in a fragile place, do not read the rest.
“Pro Libertate” says:
If Kyle had been a warrior, rather than a bully, he would have admired the authentic courage displayed by the smaller, unarmed man who fought to protect the ship and cargo entrusted to him.
How would he act if the roles were reversed – if he were the over-matched man trying to defend private property from a group of state-licensed pirates claiming “authority” from a UN mandate? We’ll never know the answer to that question, because Kyle’s “courage” is of the sort that only manifests itself in the service of power, and in the company of those enjoying a prohibitive advantage over their victims.
Not vile enough for you? Then I give you Kent’s “Hooligan Libertarian” Blog :
A murderous parasitic puppet of The State, who enjoyed murdering people and profited from his offenses, has paid the piper. Unfortunately, others were also also destroyed simply by associating with him too closely. That is the tragedy. The lesson is to shun murderers.
And I notice his death shines a light on the “liberty” movement that exposes a huge rift.
Those who love liberty, yet find it comforting to worship liberty’s greatest enemy- the government’s military- are upset that those who don’t maintain that particular inconsistency are not mourning the death of Kyle.
