Rand Paul threatened by Ron Paul supporters, not by the "new world order elite"?
Freshman Senator claims threats of violence and death were made
against him by some in liberty movement - Has anyone been charged? If
not, why not?
Since Senator Rand Paul's endorsement of Mitt Romney for
president, many articles on the internet have theorized that Rand Paul
somehow acted under duress and only made the endorsement because he was
threatened by shady powerful elements of the 'unseen elite'. [See here and here.]
However, Paul actually states the opposite; that he was threatened after the endorsement by those within the liberty movement.
Paul, 49, announced on two different radio shows that he has
received death threats and threats of violence by angry people as a
result of his Mitt Romney endorsement.
He downplayed the Romney endorsement as a political decision and
fulfillment of his own campaign promise to endorse the future GOP
On a recent 2 hour Peter Schiff radio show, Schiff had Paul on for approximately 18 minutes.
They discussed the liberty movements reaction to Rand's support of
Romney, with Schiff opining "the fact that anybody would turn on you is
absolutely ridiculous." Schiff, who advocated for a potential premptive strike on Iran while running for office, said that he would support a Romney-Paul ticket if Rand was picked as VP.
At the 1 Hour 12 minute mark, Paul explained how his father worked well
with others who in many respects were ideological opposites, and that
the elder Paul was "not confrontational, not in your face, not
yelling and screaming at people on either side; it's interesting when we
see some of the hate or even some of the violence on the internet
directed towards me right now, that isn't the kind of personality or
anything that my father would approve of."
Soon after the next commercial, Paul abruptly exited the program.
Schiff told Rand "I understand you gotta run", and bid him farewell;
later remarking "Yeah Rand had to leave. Not sure what he's doing,
Before leaving, however, Rand remarked that he has a "great deal
of respect" for Senator John McCain, and repeated the official line that
McCain was "tortured for seven years" in a Vietnamese prison.
In the DailyPaulRadio interview with Kurt Wallace, Senator Paul expressed that he doesn't appreciate being judged unfairly because of the Romney endorsement.
 "I don't go around calling people names and I don't go
around insulting folks ,and to tell you the truth is that what a lot of
people don't realize is, it's not my father's style either. You don't
see him going around, you know, a lot of the ranting and raving that
goes on by the anonymous internet [12:17] you dont see my dad going
around calling people names..."
"...I would think that good friends, within the liberty movement,
disagree on issues. but [13:51] the problem I have is the vitriol the
and anger of people who think because you disagree on a couple
Paul then referenced "irate liberty folks" and asked people to "judge me on my voting record".
Paul then says that death threats were made against him:
[16:45]"And when you disagree disagree honestly. But I
think really what hasn't been good, has been you know people making
death threats, people uh, advising violence, publicizing people's
address on the internet, you know there are some things that are kind of
worrisome about this, and I think and hope that people will listen and
uh, react responsibly."
Former Fox host Glenn Beck claimed the same thing during the 2008
presidential election. During an interview with Ron Paul himself, Beck
alleged that Paul supporters and 9/11 truthers had made death threats against him. No one was ever charged in that instance either.
An internet search for the term arrested for threats on the internet yields nearly 11 million results.
Why is it, then, that whenever a liberty adovcate or Ron Paul supporter
allegedly threatens someones life, are no indictments issued, arrests
made or trials held?? Perhaps it is because these claims of 'death
threats' and 'violence' are completely bogus.
In addition to his two recent radio interviews, Rand Paul was
approached at an event and asked about the Romney endorsement,
giving the same answers in addition to defending sanctions against Iran.
Paul characted Iran sanctions as a way to prevent war, then said "No
comment" when asked about the Bilderberg group.
However, before becoming Senator, Paul had quite the unorthodox
opinion about Bilderberg, adding that he learns about them from radio
host Alex Jones:
