Ron Paul Doubles Down On War Stance

Ron Paul is not backing off of his strong foreign policy stance despite 'isolationist' attacks from fellow 2012 Republican Presidential candidate Newt Gingrich.

Cenk Uygur says of Ron Paul's ad on US foreign wars: "That ad is awesome. It is fantastic. It allows people to understand 'hey, wait a minute, I wouldn't like it either if foreign troops were occupying me in the name of my freedom, what a crock that is' and imagine if you fought back and they called you terrorists or insurgents. You should see the whole ad. It is the kind of thing that makes you pause and go 'wait a minute, man do you really as a progressive have to think twice about who you're supporting?' Because that ad is a million times stronger and better than any ad any Democrat would run on the war."

Or, Cenk (who is well aware of the newsletter controversy) could have just said "Fuck Ron Paul", but thankfully he's smarter than that.

The Ad: Armed Chinese Troops in Texas!

Will Israel bomb Iran over a threat of nuclear weapons? How could sanctions on Iran impact oil and gas prices? The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur explains.

Race, on the other hand—along with enthusiastic Zionism—is the central shibboleth for who gets purged and who gets promoted in American conservatism.

One particularly loathsome Republican, for instance, is allowed to cheat on successive wives while they are deathly ill—and then make a career out lecturing conservatives on “Rediscovering God in America” with his former mistress. If the aptly named “Newt” Gingrich had, however, quoted approvingly from the scientific writings of Richard Lynn or J.P. Rushton at any point in his career, he would swiftly be run out of the Party on a rail.-Those Newsletters
