Growing up in the Vietnam era, everyone knew who “Hanoi Jane” was. Jane Fonda went over to communist North Vietnam and was filmed making many anti-American, propaganda statements. She gave much comfort and aid to the enemy. This is, in the Constitution, the very definition of treason. To this day, people call for her arrest, trial and conviction for this crime, which carries the death penalty.
Ron Paul may not have gotten there with this interview, but he sure gets close:
On Jan 5 2009 Ron Paul conducted an interview with Iranian state owned English language propaganda channel, Press TV, where he urges ending support of Israel, defends Hamas and tactics of suicide bombing, states that Hamas is innocent and the Israeli state are the aggressors.
“To me I look at it like it’s a concentration camp, and people are making bombs, like, they’re the aggressors?“
Obviously everything is the fault of the United States and Israel. The murdering suicide bombers bear no responsibility whatsoever. They are just a poor, oppressed people.
Ron Paul is a despicable human being. His ideas on foreign policy is beyond crazy. No sane human being thinks we can just “mind our own business” and be exempt from the problems of the world. In fact, doing what Ron Paul advocates would only make the world more dangerous, not less.
As much as Ron Paul wants to go back to the 19th Century, it doesn’t work that way. In modern society, everything effects everything. Like it or not, we have a global economy. We live in a global society. We can’t just sit back and hope for the best.
By the way, Ron Paul has said Israel shouldn’t exist, and he wouldn’t have fought the Nazis to stop the Holocaust.
Oddly enough, after the state of Israel was created in 1948, the nation tried Ron Paul’s policy of “minding their own business” and were immediately and relentlessly attacked for years. It wasn’t until Israel got aggressive and went on the offense that the Middle East became relatively stable.
If the United States “minded it’s own business” in the manner Paul suggests, you’d have an entire world at war before he finished his term. A strong America is the only thing that keeps one half of the world going after the other half.
Ron Paul is a bad man, who like Barack Obama, and the rest of the socialists, favor terrorists over the United States. If that isn’t treason, it’s as close to it as one can get without actually taking up arms against the Republic.
BTW, if you want to see what real hatred looks like, read some of the comments left on the You Tube site. It’s incredible how much hate Ron Paul gins up among his cult like supporters.
The sooner this evil clown goes away, the better.
