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?
