Justin Raimondo: The Hollow Man - Rand Paul’s Father Complex

• AntiWar.com
 
Yes, this is about Rand’s foreign policy views, but it’s also about his character. The GOP is supposed to be committed to "family values": it’s been their shtick for years. Yet what kind of family values is it when a Republican candidate has no compunctions about stabbing his own father in the back? Faced with the crew that relentlessly slandered Ron Paul at every opportunity, Rand, we are told, went into "absorption mode." It was a personal and ideological betrayal on a scale that’s painful to contemplate, and it was repeated the following month, when, we are told by Zengerle, "He met with officials from the powerful lobbying group AIPAC (the American Israel Public Affairs Committee), which has frequently clashed with Ron Paul over what the group views as his insufficient support of Israel. Paul, according to one person familiar with the AIPAC meeting, ‘told them what they wanted to hear: ‘I’m more reasonable than my father on the things you care about.’ He was very solicitous.’" Does it get any slimier than this? I’m sure it does: after all, who knows how many other secret meetings he’s had with what sorts of creepy lobbyists, foreign or domestic? And I’ll bet he was just as solicitous as he was with the AIPAC crowd. I can see that any politician, who is out there seeking support, would do well to neutralize his harshest critics, short of winning them over. That’s not what’s going on here. You’ll notice that Paul the Lesser isn’t trimming his sails uniformly, that is, moderating his voice on all the issues: he’s still denouncing Obama’s economic program in rather strident terms, even comparing him to Hitler without mentioning the German dictator by name, and he’s still going strong on the tax-and-spend front, all of which comports with the views of his nation-wide network of libertarian supporters, who are largely funding his campaign. Where he consistently goes off the rails is on the crucial foreign policy front, and that’s what the meeting with Kristol entailed – reassuring the neocons that he’s not a chip off the old block when it comes to endless war and persecution of Muslims.

Persecution of Muslims? What does that mean?

Call it persecution if yo wan, though that's not my intent. Here is what I think of Islam:

   

  I have serious problems with Islam in the USA. Why? Read on & PLEASE!! CHECK THE LINKS!!!             There is a lot of talk about us tolerating Islam. This is what I think.

How about FIRST, as a show of good faith & fairness, Arabic countries allow Christian Churches & Jewish Synagogues be built in their countries. Put the NY Mosque on hold until at least one Christian church AND one Synagogue is built in every capitol or a major city in these countries. You could throw in Buddhist Temples & Catholic & Mormon Churches for a good faith measure. Let us see how tolerant THEY are for a while FIRST!!! It would be of great benefit for the Mosque builders if they & all 'peaceful' Muslims would denounce radical Islamists, terrorism & Shari Law.

Then there is the problem we are having in the US with honor killings by Islamic followers.

National Geographic or some one had an expose, Fri.. 8-6-'10. Then there was they guy who wanted to behead his wife. How about Shari Law? You don't think that is in the agenda of Muslims? It has to be if it is a true part of their religion & they are allowed to establish Mosques here. Doesn't the concept of honor killings come, along with burkas, women as 2nd class citizens, e...&&I have serious problems with Islam in the USA. Why? Read on & check the links.
