Anyone who’s read my posts on Parcbench, my former political blog Dariaaanne and Facebook is familiar with my — shall we say — intense dislike of Ron Paul and his Kool-Aid following, which is rooted firmly in his wacky isolationism, his courting of 9/11 Truthers and his leftist propensity for blaming the USA and Israel for Muslim acts of aggression. It’s not a personality thing; it’s a policy thing. When it comes to our national security and interests, this so-called Republican is in lockstep with the left and thus a useful idiot for America’s enemies.
So imagine my delight when my good friend, young conservative activist Christina Beattie contacted me on Facebook to share the wonderful news that YAF has just given Paul the boot:
The Young Americans for Freedom has voted the Texas congressman off its national advisory board in the aftermath of his straw poll win at CPAC over his positions on national security issues.
“It’s a sad day in American history when a one-time conservative/libertarian stalwart has fallen more out of touch with America’s needs for national security then our current socialist presidential regime,” said the group’s national director Jordan Marks.
The dispute between Paul and the the group seems to stem from Paul’s anti-war activities and the prominence of his supporters at conservative events like CPAC.
“Rep. Paul is clearly off his meds and must be purged from public office. YAF is starting the process by removing him from our national advisory board. Good riddance and he won’t be missed,” added Marks.
Too bad the residents of Texas CD-14 saw fit to re-elect this nut, instead of someone like Tim Graney. If only it were as easy to rid ourselves of his disgraceful presence in Congress. It’s nearly as impossible as attempting a rational discussion of global jihad, Sharia Law and wahhabism with one of his deranged supporters.
Congrats to YAF on this most excellent decision!
