New York Times: “Dazzled” by Ron Paul?

Sunday’s edition of the New York Times contains an interesting article about the Ron Paul Revolution – in the Fashion/Style section!

Entitled “Dazzled by the Other Republican” and “It’s Not a Campaign, It’s a Mission”, the article describes Dr. Paul as a “slender, stooped, slightly sad” “lead guitarist”, who, despite dressing like an “insurance claims adjustor”, has united “disillusioned” and “yippie-ish” “peaceniks” from a wide variety of fringe backgrounds into a “mission” of “dazzled” flower children who “talk about their beliefs in spiritual terms”.

The Ron Paul Revolution is painted as a movement for “yoga instructors”, “college dropouts”, “musicians/cooks/whatever”, and people like “Mr. Linzy, 30, [who] keeps nearly half his savings in silver bullion, and scours antiques fairs and rummage sales for objects containing silver” as well as “Mr. Rayome, whose unkempt ash curls cascaded from a knit Rasta cap, [and who] wore an enameled American flag pin on his faded maroon T-shirt.”

Instead of talking about Ron Paul’s real solutions to the real problems we face today – including but not limited to skyrocketing inflation, endless wars based upon lies, unbridled illegal immigration, constant attacks on our civil liberties – the same newspaper that successfully lied us into the Iraq war now relegates the only Presidential candidate who would get us out of this mess to the Fashion/Style section and tries to subtly paint him as completely unelectable in the eyes of mainstream individuals.

What else is new?

    Dear New York Times Editor:

    Alex Williams’ article in the Fashion and Style department of the NYT, “It’s Not a Campaign, It’s a Mission,” about Ron Paul irks me, to say the least. Many of Williams’ statements are erroneous and inappropriate. “He wore a crisp dress shirt the color of mint ice cream and a color-coordinated tie, which made him look like an insurance claims adjustor.” Who cares what Ron Paul WEARS?????? And why the negative connotation to an insurance claims adjustor? Who do you people think you are to use this demeaning, disgraceful and disrepectful language?

    I am completely disgusted. Is there no honor left in what you do? Must every topic, even one as serious as a community leader lamenting the abdication of our Constitution, be addressed tongue-in-cheek?

    My repect for your “news” had plummeted to 0%.

  • Darkness has always feared the light. In this case the light from Dr. Paul’s platform is exposing the US gov’s abdication from the Constitution. These ‘people’ support that departure whole heartedly. They support selling out the US for their own profit. Like cockroaches they head for the shadows when a light is turned on. From their cozy darkness they foment & publish their rubbish, attacking, truth be durned, the only one left who would actually try to restore the US Republic & return the USA to Constitutional law & the Founder’s guidelines.

    When the roaches see the fullness of Light on judgment day I am gonna watch them squirm. Then we will all see them burn. I do hope they will repent before that day.

    Ron Paul is still in the race & Jesus Christ is still Lord. I just hope & pray He sees fit to allow the US to come to it’s senses.

    Remember, God uses what the world system calls foolish to confound the so called wise of this world system. Better to be a Christian fool than a walking dead man.
