Ron Paul Tries to Outflank Edwards and Kucinich on the Lunatic Fringe

While debate continues as to whether wacky presidential candidate Ron Paul is a 9/11 truther himself, there can be no doubt that he goes down on all fours to pander to the lunatics who choose to believe it was not Muslim terrorists but the US government that committed the atrocities of September 11, 2001.

Paul has again announced that we are "in great danger" of a terror attack deliberately staged by our government so as to justify infringement of our liberties. He also continues to flack for the ayatollahs, raving that our economy is on the verge of a collapse that could be precipitated by bombing Iran.

His latest bizarre remarks were made on The Alex Jones Show, a suitable venue for paranoid ravings. Alex Jones is so profoundly deranged, he suspects Virginia Tech killer Cho Seung-Hui was a government assassin brainwashed by the CIA. Paul is on the same page as unhinged leftist Cindy Sheehan, who has been screaming that when al-Qaeda strikes again, it will actually be a staged pretext for martial law.

Paul has made similar assertions in the past. Via Ace of Spades HQ:

The money quote from the video above:

Nothing in history hints that [Iran] is likely to invade a neighboring country, let alone do anything to America or Israel. I'm concerned however that a contrived Gulf of Tonkin type incident may well occur to gain popular support for an attack on Iran.

Yes, he's talking about the same Iran that invaded our embassy in an act of war, that held Americans hostage for over a year, that has sponsored repeated terror attacks against Americans and Israelis, that through proxy terror groups has recently invaded Iraq, Lebanon, and Israel, that is franticly developing nuclear weapons, and that has explicitly threatened both the USA and Israel. The ignorance of current events displayed by this weird little man almost matches his paranoia.

This one had to be reposted from yesterday due to technical problems. Sorry about the lost comments.

How do we know Ron Paul wasnt brainwashed by the CIA to act nuts as to deflect attention from the impending alien invasion? Seeing as the government and the UN have already sold humanity into slavery in exchange for THEM having jobs as overseers of the slave work gangs; I wouldnt be surpised if that was the case. The worst part is the women will be killed off and the men will all become mute eunuchs with no eyes and only an artificial visual sensor replacing the right eye that can be turned off at the click of a button. You see the aliens like to eat human eyes. Im voting for Ron Paul! The alien - UN conspiracy must be stopped! I like my eyes.

Where are all of the Ron Paulette nutjob boosters? Those idiots are entertaining!

Damn! My prediction of an infestation of Ron Paul lunatics - which was amply confirmed minutes later - has been lost to history. Once again the CIA silences me... /moonbat mode.

Iran...years away from nuclear capability?? J, Mary and Joseph.
This guy is a f#%k'in idiot. Love to go back in time and drown this leech at birth.

Iran...the number one actor by proxy promoting terrorism in Iraq. Iran, the promoter of the "chaos theory" in an effort to bring back their "messiah". Iran...arresting and putting down pro-democratic protesters in their homeland. I don't want to bomb Iran. There are plenty of pro-democratic folks there who remember what it was like to have freedom. But something's going to come to a head and with imbeciles like RP in charge we AND the Iranians are sunk.

Yeah Jay, the Paulette noobs are always good for a laugh or guffaw, in a condescending, pitying fashion. But hey, I'll takes my entertainment any way I can get it.

I'm afraid that with all the blunders we made in this war it's going to end with nukes.

Nah, we'll be okay. I don't think the goat herders have the capabilities to nuke the US. But if they did, we'd be done--stick a fork in us--because none of our "leaders" have the balls to respond asymmetrically. What we *should* do if they did that is tactically nuke Mecca. That would cause the entire Mooselimb world to turn against the whiteys whereever they live (Italy, UK, US, &c.). But that's okay, since that's what they would do eventually anyway. I say accelerate the inevitable and get it over with.

"This guy is a f#%k'in idiot. Love to go back in time and drown this leech at birth."

Amen, brother! The more of these people we kill, the better.

"I say accelerate the inevitable and get it over with."

Exactly! Kill 'em now - everyone of them. It's time to rid ourselves of these cockroaches.
