Most of us are shocked by a President who is clearly friends with some unsavory types Ayers, Pastor Wright and Rashid Khalidi. These are disturbing connections that call for criticism. These
connections provide a clue as to the political exteemism we would later endure.
Flash forward to our GOP primaries and Tea Party events. We do have a candidate endorsed by Nazis, Truthers and Holocaust Denniers. I have my own experience in dealing with this type of mess. One of my friends, Dr Yeagley, clearly went into the racist camp. I made my own positions well known. My criticisms were so severe he referred to his critics as the Beakerkin group. This group is so secret even its leader did not know of its existence.
Ron Paul is a disgrace to the GOP and his continued presence at Tea Party events has given the group a black eye. Many of us point to communist leadership of peace protests but have no issue with Paul and his band of Truthers, Nazis and racists at Tea Party functions. We cringe and get angry when looney tune members of the Black caucus call the group racist. Has the Tea Party asked Ron Paul and his band of lunatics to leave.
The Pagan Temple is correct that he is not as central to the Tea Party as his imbecile followers
think. However, if the Tea Party wants to claim it is about returning to traditional values then a loon who is supported by Truthers, Nazis and is an anti semite does not belong.
Ron Paul has been making the GOP look absurd for decades and needs to be shown the door. Do not cry about Code Pink members at the other convention when the GOP has permitted the Paulites to participate. Demand that the GOP show Ron Paul the door and make it clear that you are holding them accountable for the Rep from the psych ward.
