Ron Paul’s Supporters HATE Glenn Beck

September 16, 2009


Expanding on my post yesterday refuting David Frum’s cockamamie notion of Glenn Beck as some sort of Ron Paul cheerleader, I now add this new piece of evidence to the table. (Hat tip to “My Hearts in London – Everett” at Free Republic.)

Over at Daily Paul, the fan site for the crackpot congressman, they featured the following video which collects many of Beck’s anti-Paul remarks:

Does David Frum still maintain that Beck is a Paul True Believer? If that were true wouldn’t Paul’s army be Beck’s biggest supporters?

    I fear you are fighting a losing battle his cadre will seek to punish you relentlessly for the truth.

    I also might add that one of Pauls main Boosters is Devvy Kidd who is a declared truther and sees conspiracies behind every tree. Not saying there are no conspiracies but I have to balk at the concentration camps being prepared for Americans in Las Vegas. I want my room at the new Sands.

      I concur. I am very active on twitter. I see this division at times and it needs to stop. Our nation is in distress. Been saying this for a year.

      We are being systematically, dismantled by bho et al.

      Obama is, the trojan horse. He is the distraction as to what’s really going on.

      Watch the other hand, not each other!

      We need to be united, not trying to promote another politician.

    Beck and Paul agree on economics and are headed in the same direction on the proper role of government. They disagree on foreign policy. Two out of three ain’t bad.

    I don’t know who is responsible for that video. I suspect it is someone whose only focus is antiwar. A little care needs to be taken when judging a politician by some of his supporters. The KKK supported Barry Goldwater, at least initially. I have in my email inbox a solicitation from the Conservative Book Club for Ron Paul’s book, End The Fed. I suppose that means Ron Paul is a Conservative.

    I disagree with Ron Paul on foreign policy as does Beck. To therefore call him “the crackpot congressman” is reprehensible. FPM has reasoned discourse with the antiwar left. Is it the case that FPM is unwilling to offer the same courtesy to the antiwar right?

    We need as many allies as we can get. Driving a wedge between Paul and Beck is counterproductive.

    Allies who openly court the fringe “right” we don’t need.

    Swindle’s not referring to Paul’s foreign policy – which is little different from Pat Buchanan’s – in calling him a crackpot. He’s referring to the company he keeps – Stormfronters, NWO Truthers who think the Denver airport was designed as a concentration camp for when ZOG (aka the Jooos) takes over, and Masonic conspiracy theorists, for starters. Ron Paul has openly solicited their support and contributed lovely Christmas messages to their newsletters – he’s not just sitting on the sidelines befuddled at why his “simply Libertarian” message resonates with these people.

    Attaching the Ronulans to the Republican Party is exactly what Obama and his race-card-turning stooges in the media would loooove to see right now.

    And as for the Fed, I think Adam Smith, Von Mises and Milton Friedman, to name a few, had the same things to say long before Ron Paul did, so it’s not like we’re ostracizing a vital philosophical wellspring by marginalizing Paul for his “extra-cirricular” interests.

    The fact that he has an idea or two that we agree with doesn’t excuse his fellow-travelling with conspiracy theorists, whether it’s done out of sincere belief or simple pandering for votes.

      Thank you for setting me straight. I did not know these things about Ron Paul; I assume that your statements about him are factual. It does indeed appear that he is a crackpot.

      The only thing I take issue with is your statement about Milton Friedman. As much as I otherwise admire him he was in bed with the Fed.

      This is an excellent comment. Thank you.
