An Open Letter to All Ron Paul Supporters
Instead of launching insults at people who criticize Ron Paul, perhaps Ron Paul sheeple should question his credentials a bit more.
Supporters or Sheeple?
A better word for Ron Paul supporters is sheep. That’s right. The same insult you launch at anyone who opposes your views is quite appropriate to describe your cult. Now, I will admit that I entertained the idea of considering Ron Paul as an alternative to voting for Obama, especially since his silence after the abuses suffered by the Occupy protesters, but it was you, his followers that have so turned me off to that idea that I wonder why I even contemplated it.
The Sheeple's Response
The fact that you, his sheep, have raised him to super hero status is, well, there is no word to describe it other than sickening. The posters of him as the Dark Knight or a Jedi are insults to Batman and Star Wars fans everywhere, so please, stop.
The thing is, in doing all these childish, immature things your right to be taken seriously has been revoked. You don’t deserve that privilege anymore when your response to any criticism is similar to what this Ron Paul sheeple left as a comment on another article about Ron Paul.
“Ron Paul is not a racist, you don’t even know who the person is because he’s one of the greatest guys out there, definitely as a politician.”
It’s okay Henk, I corrected your misspelled words for the sake of my article, and I’ve included the link to that article below.
If this is the best response you can muster to the mountains of evidence that Ron Paul is not only a racist but a bigot as well, you deserve the title of sheeple. I’m not even going to go into Ron Paul’s record of racism and bigotry, because the point of this piece is that your response to it is to call the person making the criticism a sheep. You don’t offer some sort of proof to make your point. Instead, like the immature children that you are, you throw insults. I’ve had Ron Paul sheeple even accuse me of believing everything I hear, and that I was the problem. Believing everything I hear? I’m sorry, I thought hearing racism and bigotry from the source was about as close to the truth as you can get.
"But Let's Move On, People"
This Man Does Not Inspire Confidence
In the clip above, Ron Paul conveniently says the newsletters and any comments he is accused of saying are in the past and it’s time to move on. No, sir, you do not get to just move on. You cannot make statements like that and then conveniently refuse to take responsibility for them, or, if it is true that he did not make them, explain who did. The fact that his name is on racist newsletters at all is cause for concern when deciding if this man is qualified to run our country. It is a very valid concern and the responses from Ron Paul sheeple are the same as his—move on. I’m sorry, but that does not inspire confidence in a voter like me.
So grow up kids. Stop blaming the sane people for questioning this man’s credentials. The tragedy here is that YOU do not question them more.
