Ron Paul is not being rejected by the lunatic base, he is the lunatic base. If Mr. Dyer were a little more in touch with Dr Paul's past, he would surely be familiar with the newsletter the congressman published on a monthly basis called "Ron Paul's Freedom Report".
Dr. Paul's newsletter has been filled with chilling, racist rants, and in the past Congressman Paul once penned an article chronicling an upcoming race war in which he said, and I quote verbatim, "I've urged everyone in my family to know how to use a gun in self defence. For the animals are coming". Dr. Paul has written a plethora of articles in which he describes African Americans as zoo animals. He once claimed that "black welfare recipients will feel justified in stealing from mostly white 'haves.'" The litany of his racist remarks have been well chronicled, most recently by The New Republic.
Chilling, to say the least, and disturbing that he can seduce sycophantic pundits like Mr Dyer.
I wonder if Mr Dyer, like Sullivan, will have the courage to denounce congressman Paul, or does he stand by his statement that this idiot is a "national treasure". What about it Mr. Dyer?
