Ron Paul is the only man who can save America from the military-industrial complex.

And the Medical-industrial complex.

the Financial-industrial complex.

and the Communications-industrial complex.

All the fascists too.

This past Sunday on Meet the Press, Paul responded to Tim Russert's questions on fascism and the war on terror. ace linked this article in the headlines, "When Right meets Left". It's a decent enough title I suppose, but if you really wanted to capture the essence of it, "When Apologetic Ignorant Fuckwits meet Left" would have been better. Perhaps the editor killed that one.

Have you noticed that people who use the word "fascist" at least once a day, are frequently idiots who simply misuse the word to reinforce their idiotic arguments. Ron Paul doesn't even have the balls to do that, he waters it down to the "threat of creepy-crawly fascism".


*tantalizing AoS Moron contest below! Fabulous prizes await!*


MR. RUSSERT: But let me go back to this ad. You do not believe that Mike Huckabee, that ad commercial represents the potential of fascism in the form of a cross.

REP. PAUL: No. But I think this country, a movement in the last 100 years, is moving toward fascism. Fascism today, the softer term, because people have different definition of fascism, is corporatism when the military industrial complex runs the show, when the—in the name of security pay—pass the Patriot Act. You don’t vote for it, you know, you’re not patriotic America. If you don’t support the troops and you don’t support—if you don’t support the war you don’t support the troops. It’s that kind of antagonism. But we have more corporatism and more abuse of our civil liberties, more loss of our privacy, national ID cards, all this stuff coming has a fascist tone to it. And the country’s moving in that direction. That’s what I’m thinking about. This was not personalized. I never even used my opponents names if you, if you notice.

Got that? It's not out and out fascism, it's just dipping your toe in the fascist springs.

On the war and terrorism:

MR. RUSSERT: It sounds like you think that the problem is al-Qaeda—the problem is the United States, not al-Qaeda.

REP. PAUL: No, it’s both. It’s both—al-Qaeda becomes violent. It’s sort of like if you step in a snake pit and you get bit, you know, who caused the trouble? Because you stepped in the snake pit or because snakes bite you? So I think you have to understand both. But why, why produce the incentive for these violent, vicious thugs to want to come here and kill us.

MR. RUSSERT: Do you think there’s an ideological struggle that Islamic fascists want to take over the world?

REP. PAUL: Oh, I think some, just like the West is wanting to do that all the time. Look at the way they look at us. I mean, we’re in a, we’re in a 130 countries. We have 700 bases. How do you think they proposed that to their people, saying “What does America want to do? Are they over here to be nice to us and teach us how to be good democrats?”

MR. RUSSERT: So you see a moral equivalency between the West and Islamic fascism.

REP. PAUL: For some people, some radicals on each side that when we impose our will with force by a few number of people—not the American people—I’m talking the people who have hijacked our foreign policy, the people who took George Bush’s foreign policy of a humble foreign policy and turned it into one of nation-building which he complained about.

The question isn't about radicals you ass, nice gutless dodge. He asked what do YOU see?

Oh. Wait, I get it. The "people" who hijacked our foreign policy. Ok. Them.

And we all know who "They" are.

Here are some groups who know who "They" are too: Neo-Nazis, White Supremacists, Holocaust Deniers, 9/11 "Truthers" and other paranoid and discredited conspiracists.

The funny thing is, it's not even clever. It's certainly not nuanced. It's fucking lazy. It takes a remarkably unimaginative brain to ignore "1300 years of jihad" and instead blame ourselves and the Joooo.

In the interview (I heard some excepts on the radio), Paul actually asserted than the uneducated man on the Arab street feels oppression from the United States in his everyday life. This after telling Tim how our arrogance is perceived throughout the world because we force the world to trade for oil in dollars.

Fiat dollars, to be sure, but he didn't say that.

RonPaulRoundUp:

This "champion" of capitalism asserts that "big business is in bed with big government and they're running the show". Leftist-socialist position.

The only man who can save America thinks we're to blame for terrorism, or at least equally responsible. Leftist-moral equivalence, and a rock solid indication of national self-loathing. But it's not America he loathes but rather the sooper-sekrit "THEM" who have hijacked our foreign policy. Anti-semitic position.

And a tubful of disenfranchised lunatics and haters, all part of the Ron Paul Posse, who shall neither be repudiated, confronted, distanced from, nor shall their contributions be returned. Rather they are embraced, or dismissively explained away as "he doesn't know who they are". You know now Ron, and you're silent.

You can't save America. You can't even save yourself.

I'm ready to sponsor a "Cool Facts about Ron Paul" contest. Fabulous prizes. Judging will be arbitrary and capricious.

LauraW weighs in with this gem: Ron Paul cremates adorable kittens alive just to listen to them scream.

I can't improve on that, but I'll try.

Ron Paul is the Only Man who can save that Cake That was Left Out IN THE RAIN.
