Ron Paul runs political ads asking “How would we feel if China had bases in Texas?” as a pretext to espouse his Isolationist platform. His ads are dangerously misleading.
Jimmy Carter’s appeasement of Ayatollah Rullah Khomeni that led to the Islamic takeover of Iran and thus erasing an ally and creating an eternal enemy may end up being mild compared to the lunacy and foreign policy ideas of Ron Paul.
The mob zombie hordes of Neo-Con-stitutionalists, quasi Leftists and anti-war pacifists gorge on the slabs of blame-America first and pro-Islamist Apologetics, Ron Paul tosses their way. In the end, Jimmy Carter will seem to be a lion and a Goliath in comparison to Ron Paul should by some incredible miracle, he ever win the office he is seeking for the third time. In fact, Ron Paul may be more detrimental to our national security than even Dear Leader Obama.
After all, Ron Paul asserts that he strenuously does not believe the United States had any business getting involved in fighting Hitler in WWII. He expressed to longtime aide Eric Dondero countless times, that ‘saving the Jews,’ was absolutely none of our(America’s) business and asserts when pressed, that “FDR knew about the attacks of Pearl Harbor weeks before hand, and that WWII was just ‘blowback,’ for Woodrow Wilson’s foreign policy errors, and such. ”
This is consistent with Ron Paul’s current insanity in the face of the global rise of militant Islam and the 9-11 Jihad attacks. As with blaming FDR with knowing in advance the Pearl Harbor attack, Ron Paul asserts the crackpot Alex Jones/Truther view that G.W. Bush knew of the 9-11 attacks in advance, and was “gleeful” for the loss of 3,000 lives as a pretext to invade Iraq. It’s bad enough Ron Paul badmouths America on a routine basis, it’s even worse (and I say treasonous) when he goes on enemy State television, to denounce America and our foreign policy so it can be used by the Islamofascists in Iran a justification propaganda to prepare and to wage war on “the Great and little Satan”.
PressTV in Iran had a field day with the excerpts from this interview, emboldening the Islamist regime’s covert war against American troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.
What I do not know is, if Ron Paul was a clueless idiot to allow himself to be used by an enemy for their purposes against us; or if he willingly gave aid and comfort to the Ahmadinejad regime and his mullahs with his views that are played in Iran as evidence to wage war on the United States and our allies. In either case, this 2009 interview alone is evidence that Ron Paul is actually more dangerous to our national security than even Obama’s pandering to Marxist states.
Ron Paul, as accused – is a militant Pacifist and ardent Isolationist. His own aide confirmed that fact. His Mob Zombie Hordes play with his words to insist he is a Constitutionalist, when he is nothing of the sort. He is an espoused Libertarian, and always had been, running on the Republican ticket so as to deceive what he really is, because it is the only way he can win elections.
To those who claim Ron Paul is simply a strict non-interventionist, Ron Paul is the lunatic who expressed to his staffers after the 9-11 attacks, that he opposed any and all military retaliation. According to his former aide, Paul “expressed no sympathies whatsoever for those who died on 9/11, and pretty much forbade us staffers from engaging in any sort of memorial expressions, or openly asserting pro-military statements in support of the Bush administration.”
It’s not about being non-interventionist with Ron Paul – it’s about his being horrifyingly naive, clueless and ignorant of the real world outside of what he, himself thinks motivates people.
I continue to be baffled why the GOP leadership continues to allow this Libertarian-kook Ron Paul to run as a member of their party, because his presence and purpose seems to be to divide the Conservative vote, and throw the election back to Obama in 2012. He wants the office too badly, and is vaunted as a political savior by too many clueless idiots who simply think Ron Paul will “tear it all down”, which is what they desperately want.
Coach Kevin Collins notes the dangerous deception of Ron Paul’s ads, wondering aloud how the Islamist enemies will use this ad for their purposes. Well coach, this is not the first rodeo for Ron Paul’s interviews to be used by our Jihadist enemies. It is yet another consistent fact of Ron Paul’s unfitness to hold public office.
BY COACH COLLINS, ON JANUARY 1ST, 2012
It is hard to say who, other than our Islamist enemies, benefits from Ron Paul’s slick ad asking, “What if China had bases in Texas?” Paul uses it to promote his delusional view of the world and certainly fools some well-meaning but ill-informed Americans. Those who don’t want us to fight with our hands tied behind our back are easy prey for the gibberish Paul is selling because this ad blurs the lines between the frustrating manner we have prosecuted the war on terror and the very valid reasons for entering into it to begin with.
Many Americans who understand the appallingly halfhearted way the war in Viet Nam was “fought” have an understandable predisposition toward believing we are fighting a “civil war” or “meddling in the affairs of other countries” when we take proactive measures in fighting our war on terror. Paul knows this and shamelessly plays on it for votes.
Nevertheless, implying there is no difference between Viet Nam and the current war on terror is as addle brained as saying there is no difference between night and day.
Because it was largely true that nothing when North Viet Nam and the Chinese attacked South Viet Nam, would not have brought that war to our shores, does not in any way mean a “live and let live” policy toward the Islamist will insure our safety – just ask the Spanish train bombing victims about that.
Paul’s misguided foreign policy would have us deny the threat of Islam based on the implied notion that we can treat Iran and organized Islamist terror groups as if they are just another group of Nazis speaking a different language. The Nazis did not want to destroy our way of life; they wanted to take over our way of life. The Islamists don’t want to take over our way of life they want to murder every one of us and spit on our way of life.
In its Verses of The Sword, the Koran instructs Islamist to cheat lie steal in order to ultimately murder all infidels for merely living. It says nothing about putting these things into practice only if attacked by the West. Ron Paul either doesn’t understand this at best; or doesn’t want his supporters to understand this at worst.
Slick ads that cloud the differences between the enemies of the 1940s and the enemies we face today do nothing to keep us safe; on the contrary they lull us into a false sense of security. Shame on you Ron Paul; shame on you.
