The Mystery Of The Ron Paul Freakshow

Here's a trillion dollar deficit question: Where did Iran's Favorite Congress Critter, Ron Paul, get his army of  followers ?

It's an important question to ask.

Bloggers can't criticize Paul without having a cross burned on their blog by the RuPaulista SS. (Erick Erickson's RedState has had to ban anyone who wasn't a member for more than six months for mentioning Paul in a post.) Conservative radio show hosts can't utter a peep about Mahmoud AmendinePaul without having his lines jammed up for the rest of the show. Take a look see at what happened to Michael Savage after mentioning Paul on his show:



I'm not a Michael Savage fan. I think he's an arrogant putz. However, he has a valid point point about being mugged by the RuPaulista SS. My old blog at was shut down by these brownshirts. Here's a sampling of some of the crap I received for daring to question Fuhrer Paul:


"Neocon trash ARE getting worried!

To be stooping to the smear tactics of the Left!

'You'we a wacist!"

"Ah, What the Heck

Here you go, Al:

Who got us into the Iraq war?

A List of prominent Jewish Neocons and their role in getting the U.S. into Iraq and Homeland Security: -for-Iraq-war.htm

Why am I posting this?

Just to pi$$ you off.

No other reason."

"Nobrains, you've just been e-sodomized!

Now don't get me wrong. I'm a big boy and I can take whatever these twerps dish out and I'm fairly certain that Michael Savage can take care of himself. That's not the point here. The real question here is where did this mysterious army of supporters come from ? How do they show up for every internet straw poll ? How do they jam phone lines the way they do ? How do they find small time bloggers like myself ? How does Paul, who only managed 438,000 popular votes in 1988, maintain such a vast army of supporters ?
Wired magazine took a shot at answering this question in 2007:
"A researcher at SecureWorks has traced the October flood of deceptive spam promoting Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul to a criminal botnet of compromised computers run out of Ukraine, which was rented for the three-day job.
'While the total count of Ron Paul spam messages that actually landed in peoples’ inboxes can’t be known, it certainly was received by millions of recipients,' writes security researcher Joe Stewart, in a SecureWorks report. 'All this was done using around 3,000 bots.'

There were 162,211,647 e-mail addresses targeted, Stewart writes, though many were likely bad or outdated.

Stewart’s detective work identified the botnet as part of a criminal operation in Eastern Europe called Reactor Mailer that offers spammers a convenient web interface to manage their illegal campaigns. The Ron Paul spam was managed by a spammer-for-hire who goes by the handle 'nenastnyj.' "


Well, there's part of the answer. This is how RuPaul (H/T Mark Levin) wins online strawpolls and this is also why your inbox gets jammed with RuPaulista propaganda. However, spambots can't be talk show callers and they can't troll blogs without being blatantly obvious. There's more to this.

Check out this blog posting from Cass Sunstein, Chairman Obama's UNELECTED "Regulatory Czar":


"Conspiracy theorists are not likely to be persuaded by an attempt to dispel their theories; they may even characterize that very attempt as further proof of the conspiracy. Because those who hold conspiracy theories typically suffer from a crippled epistemology, in accordance with which it is rational to hold such theories, the best response consists in cognitive infiltration of extremist groups. "


Could this be the other part of the answer ? Are some of Ron Paul's phantom supporters actually feds attempting to disrupt Conservative talkshows and message boards ? Let's not forget that fascists like this Sunstein character think that the entire Conservative Movement is a big conspiracy theory. The grand majority of the time, the RuPaulista SS attacks Conservative websites and talk radio shows. They don't troll Moveon.Dork. They don't jam up Leslie Marshall's phone lines. They show up on Free Republic and the Mark Levin show. They don't take shots at our failing president, they take shots at Rush Limbaugh and Sarah Palin.

It would also behoove us to consider who Cass Sunstein is married to. That would be Sammantha Power, who, like RuPaul, hates Israel. Power is the National Security Council's Director of Multilateral Affairs. As Discover The Networks points out about Power:


In a 2007 interview, Power said that America’s relationship with Israel 'has often led foreign policy decision-makers to defer reflexively to Israeli security assessments, and to replicate Israeli tactics...' The United States, she explained, had brought terrorist attacks upon itself by aping Israel’s violations of human rights."


Here's the bottom line: Yes, Ron Paul has some hardcore supporters. But there aren't millions of them. Something is radically wrong here. If We the Conservatives don't figure it real fast, Ron Paul and his freakshow will sink our chances in the 2012 election. No, I don't think Dr. Detestable is going to win the Republican nomination or the Presidency. He has a better shot of winning Power Ball and being hit by lightning on the same day. However, the lazy and arrogant media will start linking Paul's lunacy to the Tea Party. When that happens, you can kiss 2012 goodbye. If we kiss 2012 goodbye, we can also kiss America goodbye. Yes, this is that serious.
