That’s how Ron Paul supporters behave, whether on the internet, debates or at straw polls. The mob, acting like political wedding crashers think that by descending like locusts on any straw poll, political event, blog or forum, that they can strong arm their messiah to the top spot by intimidation.
Like this event in San Francisco:
Those in the YouTube crowd may have seen the clip of supporters of fringe Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul (dubbed “Paultards” by Wonkette) inundating a recent San Francisco Republican Alliance straw poll. The unexpected cavalcade of Paul people led organizer Gail Neira to call the whole thing off.
While observing outraged Paul advocates roaring “You’re a disgrace!” at a flustered woman wearing a Santa hat is its own special kind of funny, that was far from the only hoot. The real joke was that the Paul people wasted their outrage lambasting Neira as a representative of the dishonorable party establishment. You see, the Republican Alliance isn’t even recognized by the Republican Party as an affiliated organization. That probably comes as news to a lot of Paulsters, who have made stacking local party straw polls a specialty. A bulletin on the Ron Paul Meetup Web site before the event implored them to “Come to this important San Francisco GOP Straw Poll and VOTE!”
“We had the feeling that this was a Republican Party event and, as Republicans, we were welcome,” said Paul supporter Aaron Voisine of Santa Clara — who was apparently wrong on both counts.
It is an interesting Brownshirt-style phenomena that the Ron Paul Mob Zombies engage themselves in. While one cannot discount the passion they have for their hoped-for political messiah, manners and respect are something this mob has completely discarded. If you watch this mob for any length of time, you begin to discover a real danger posed by militants within that bunch who are bloodthirsty for revolution – and have no problems making threats of violence and even threats of death to anyone who disagrees with them or their idol of worship. Niera may have found herself lucky with such a mob that the insults and heated slurs did not result in violence.
The bright side of this event is that the Mob Zombies have made another crusader to oppose their riotous horde.
Four committee members say they were shocked when Neira announced at the last meeting that she wouldn’t be inviting supporters of candidates she didn’t like to her private Dec. 4 straw poll. Neira’s rationale: It’s her shindig and she’ll invite whom she wants. And she didn’t want Rudy Giuliani’s crowd. “I resent any man of his stature who has disrespect for women,” she sniffs. “I can invite whomever I please. It’s my money and my party.”
Unfortunately, the Ron Paul mob zombies do not respect the liberty of others if they oppose or do not support the object of their worship. Freedom of political speech is only respected if you support Ron Paul. If you do not support him or his “Revlution” – or say anything negative about his positions – be prepared for an avalanche of crusaders equipped with maces and clubs of insult and bashing, and some among them will threaten you with violence and death.
What is become typical behavior among the Mob Zombies, who behave more like brownshirts than so-called Constitutionalists.
Methinks too many of them are romanticizing a real bloodletting revolution. Given the rhetoric of some of them, when Ron Paul does not win the GOP nomination – I imagine some of their idiots might act on their threats.
