When the truth hurts, ban it.
“I was infuriated by a news article I read today that stated that the Republican Party Chairman in Michigan was going to make a concerted effort to ban Ron Paul from participating in any future GOP Presidential Debates. His reason for such rash and Orwellian thinking? He doesn’t like the Congressman’s message.
Now, we may be a lot of things in The Political Cesspool, but we’re nothing if not the ardent defenders of our God-given right to the freedoms of speech, expression and association. It’s a shame many leaders of the Republican Party don’t feel the same as we do. Ron Paul has already been the recipient of biased attacks from the establishment media and despite winning the debates according to the opinion of viewers polled by MSNBC and FOX, the conservative Texan might now find himself barred from having the opportunity to espouse his viewpoint altogether if some in the GOP have their way.
I don’t know of any other group that is yet mounting a counter-offensive to this madness, but if there aren’t any, I’d like for our radio program to begin the defense of Ron Paul’s right to participate. Read the article below and then read what we believe YOU can do to help Congressman Paul.”
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — 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.
“Folks, don’t believe for a second that this could never come to fruition. It may seem like a long shot that Paul would be excluded from future debates, but I’ve seen the Republican Party do worse. It was in Michigan in 2000 that, due to Republican underhandedness, they denied Pat Buchanan ballot access after he had met the requirements to be included. Michigan was the only state in which Buchanan’s name was not featured as a candidate in the Presidential election.
In an effort to “ride to the sound of the guns” on behalf of Paul, we are encouraging our listeners to call the Michigan Republican Party and respectfully, but demandingly, insist that this sort of thought policing has no place in a free society.
Again, the man behind the effort to remove Paul is Michigan State Chairman Saul Anuzis. Below is the contact website as well as the direct line to the Michigan GOP Office. Let’s get on top of this folks!” — James Edwards, Host, Political Cesspool
