This is sure to backfire.
The chairman of the Michigan Republican Party said Wednesday that he will try to bar Ron Paul from future GOP presidential debates because of remarks the Texas congressman made that suggested the Sept. 11 attacks were the fault of U.S. foreign policy.
Michigan party chairman Saul Anuzis said he will circulate a petition among Republican National Committee members to ban Paul from more debates. At a GOP candidates’ debate Tuesday night, Paul drew attacks from all sides, most forcefully from former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, when he linked the terror attacks to U.S. bombings.
“The last time I got a message out about my position on the war it boosted us up by tens of thousands and I didn’t change my position,” Paul said. “I think the American people are sick and tired of this war and want it ended.”
See this is what happens when you don’t adhere to the Neo-Con group-think.
The Republicans are quite clearly shaking in their boots — if Ron Paul is no threat, why do they need to ban him? It’s because he connects with real traditional conservatives, and those who might be re-evaluating the US’ war against Iraq. At the moment, he also connects much more with the American populace, at large, than pro-war fascists like Giuliani.In Germany, politicians like Giuliani, McCain, and Hillary Clinton might be banned for being too neo-Nazi, if the ban on Nazi’s was taken seriously (that is, interpretted in policy, not merely name).
