PAGE 4: OH HEY, ANGRY INTERNET MOB…
The Washington Examiner was the first publication to notice how badly the Romney endorsement was going, even giving credence to far-fetched conspiracies. “Others even speculated that Rand Paul was threatened or bribed into supporting Romney, by the Bilderberg group, suggesting that it wasn’t a coincidence that his endorsement came after their conference.” They wrote, before lifting these comments (which I’ll re-lift):
Eric Elledge: DISGUSTING. Right before Father’s Day too. What a piece of garbage Rand turned out to be. One & Done Senator!
Jason Sauer: you have lost my support for being a TRATOR to your father
Mario Jimenez: Something is definitely not right. I have a feeling Rand was strong-armed by someone pulling the strings. But this just ain’t right.
Mikey Indigo: Someone better have put a gun to your head, otherwise your father should disown you. Good luck sleeping at night knowing what you did to this country. I hope the price was worth it.
Richie Proffitt: I guess the 30 minute meeting with Mittens was actually a 12 hour lobotomy. Maybe the whole zombies thing is to get us to fall in line and vote status quo. Meh.
Matt Reibel: Notice that he made this announcement just a few days after the Bilderberg conference. The elite will stop at nothing to prevent liberty from reclaiming the White House and our government so I highly suspect the Bilderberg attendees did one of the following: 1) came up with an offer that Rand Paul could not refuse 2) they have some very serious dirt on Rand or someone close to him and threatened to release it if he didn’t endorse Romney and sell out
Mark Elmo Ellis: Matt!!! Excellent point!!! Comes right on the heels of that meeting, doesn’t it???
Sandi Begic: The Bilderberg group threatened Ron Pauls life, i think Rand did this to protect his father.
Richard Rogers: Romney stands for everything that Ron Paul fights to destroy. Rand”Benedict” Paul I guess this means you will be heading to the Bilderberg next year. Rand when you dance with the Devil you will get burned.
The Business Insider also got in on the fun, posting a rather comprehensive overview of comments from The Daily Paul:
At this point I feel icky contributing any more digital ink to telling this tale of the time Rand Paul dropped a hot steamer in the punch bowl, so I’ll gladly give the floor to our own Hammer of Truth readers to leave your own comments explaining to Rand Paul’s vanity search bot how epically bad this endorsement was.
UPDATE: Roger Gay over at the Libertarian Examiner also jumped on the Star Wars meme bandwagon with his article “Rand Paul Turns to the Dark Side“.
Gay writes, “The son of a great Jedi master of the Liberty Movement, The Force was strong in the young apprentice. Alas, he was thrust into the limelight of the battle between good and evil far too early, long before his training could be completed. Inexperienced, impatient, and eager to make his own way, the call to become ordinary, a simple mindless drone in the Washington gang was too strong.”
That’s a far cry from WaPo’s “a good soldier” label.
UPDATE II: Campaign blogger Jack Hunter is taking some heat for providing cover for Rand’s endorsement. Here’s the damning video montage of Hunter’s 2010 statements versus his 2012 statements. Not one of his finer moments:
