Controversy over seating Ron Paul delegates: ”Controversy erupted on the convention floor when a dispute broke out over whether to seat the delegates of presidential candidate Rep. Ron Paul of Texas. Part of Maine’s delegation stormed off the floor in protest of a decision to strip away half of Paul’s delegates. Supportive members of other delegations rose to their feet and hollered their objections, angered by new rules that they say they will make it harder for grassroots candidates to stand a chance in future elections.” — Democracy Now
Ron Paul Tells CNN’s Piers Morgan Only “Honest Rape” Warrants An Abortion, But What Constitutes Honest Rape?
During an appearance on CNN’s Piers Morgan, GOP presidential hopeful Ron Paul was asked whether as a man with daughters and granddaughters, would he think that abortion is warranted if a woman has been impregnated by a rapist.
“If it’s an honest rape,” Paul replied, “that individual should go immediately to the emergency room, I would give them a shot of estrogen.” He claimed, however, that if a woman is “seven months pregnant” and says that she was raped, “It’s a little bit of a different story.” Source
Um, exactly what constitutes “honest rape?” I thought rape was rape. Am I missing something? Is there dishonest rape? I remember a time when people thought former president Ronald Reagan was going to hit the switch to start World War III, but I think Ron Paul is a bigger threat than Ronald Reagan ever was.
GOP presidential hopeful Ron Paul dodges racist newsletter question during ABC presidential debate, says Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was one of his heroes and says the civil rights icon practiced Libertarian principles. He made the rounds with all the black civil rights icons. He even invoked Rosa Parks too.
“More importantly, you ought to ask me what my relationship is for racial relationships. And one of my heroes is Martin Luther King because he practiced the libertarian principle of peaceful resistance and peaceful civil disobedience, as did Rosa Parks did,” Ron Paul said.
It’s very ironic that Ron Paul should state Dr. King was one of his heroes because one of those newsletters, published in December 1990, singled out Martin Luther King Jr. as ”a world-class adulterer” and even accused the civil rights leader as having “seduced underage girls and boys” and “replaced the evil of forced segregation with the evil of forced integration.”
Here’s an excerpt from Ron Paul’s December 1990 newsletter:
He was also a comsymp, if not an actual party member, and the man who replaced the evil of forced segregation with the evil of forced integration.
King, the FBI files show, was not only a world-class adulterer, he also seduced underage girls and boys. The Re. Ralph David Abernathy revealed before his death that King had made a pass at him many years before.
And we are supposed to honor this “Christian minister” and lying socialist satyr with a holiday that puts him on a par with George Washington?
Congratulations to Arizona! Who could doubt that the result would be exactly the same if the other 49 states could also vote on a holiday for this affirmative-action saint?
Would you say that about your one of your “heroes?” Ron Paul can’t seem to keep his story straight. Um, this isn’t the way to appease the black community. We can see right through your “pious baloney.”
Ron Paul came out swinging Wednesday morning against Newt Gingrich for calling him a dangerous candidate, by dubbing Gingrich a “chickenhawk who avoided the Vietnam War.”
“I don’t want to fight a war that’s unconstitutional, and I’m the dangerous person? You know, when Newt Gingrich was called to service in the 1960s during the Vietnam era, guess what he thought about danger? He chickened out on that, he got deferments and didn’t even go,” Paul said on CNN later in the morning. Source: Politico
Food fight! Yeah Ron Paul might be dangerous for America but so is Newt Gingrich, who represents what we don’t want in a politician. If anything Ron Paul has been consistent on his positions, most of which are crazy, but he has been consistent. I hope Mitt Romney isn’t too pleased with his Iowa caucus win. It’s nothing to be proud about. In fact, he really lost big because he only eked out a win by eight votes. It clearly shows Republicans aren’t thrilled about him being their nominee to go up against Obama.
Public Policy Polling survey: Ron Paul must be feeling really good this morning, since Nate Silver‘s forecast is that he a 44% chance of winning the Iowa caucus since Newt Gingrich is literally imploding before our eyes. Mitt Romney has a 32% chance of winning, while Gingrich’s chances have sunk to just 15%.
