"Moving on to Mr. Aqua Buddha himself, the Rand Paul mess is predictably just that. The Paul campaigns have always drawn their share of assorted thugs, truthers, anti-war activists and the like.
The media has tried to cynically paint Mike Pezzano, one of the attackers, as a conservative, but he's nothing of the sort-- as Lisa Graas has exposed.
Pezzano's Meetup interests include legalizing pot, bashing Bush, Democratic Underground, opposition to globalization-- in other words, Pezzano has more in common with the MoveOn.org protester he attacked, than with normal Republicans. He's part of a libertarian fringe whose only overlap with Republicans is an endorsement of smaller government. But if that's all it takes to be considered a conservative Republican, then Lyndon LaRocuhe's followers would qualify too. And that's clearly wrong.
By carrying water for the likes of Pezzano, conservative bloggers are playing into the hands of liberals, who want to use him to define the Tea Party and conservatives. Lisa has pointed out that is not a Tea Party issue. Considering George Soros just dumped a million on Pezzano's favorite cause, they're not all that far apart.
The Pauls are not conservative. They have more in common with LaRouche and their campaign attracts lunatics and thugs. Which is natural when you're pandering to people who think that the United States is controlled by a secret conspiracy of bankers and that Bin Laden is a CIA agent. But instead of treating them the way both parties have treated LaRouche, Rand Paul got the welcome mat from the Republican party. He might win, but what his victory will cost the Republican party is a whole other story. This latest incident is a small taste of what's to come. " - Sultan Knish
It's a pretty darn sad day when little old me, has to realize that a 14 year old "conservative" on twitter is supporting Rand Paul (although he can
neither vote nor lives in Kentucky) and worse when shown all the evidence of who the Paul's actually are kept stating over and over and over that
"well, if you're okay with the destruction of my future in this country via fiscal irresponsibility, that's okay" and "the economy will be "okay" when I grow up? We're trillions of dollars in debt and counting, w/ no signs of it turning around" and "care about my future, so I'll vote for those who are fiscally responsible. When/If things start to turn around, we can" and even worse "If we want an America to clean up, we need to save it from economic death first. Priorities" ...
(slogans spouted without any thought) as a justification of his support of Rand.
What the HELL Is FOX NEWS teaching our youth? Do they realize they are molding the minds of the young? Do they NOT realize that they need to teach them how to think not what to think?
This one-size fits all slogan garbage is sick. Save America from economic death? Economic Death is the priority over REAL LIVES!??? WTH!!! Nice job FOXNEWS!
