214. It's context as well. Some have skewered Brennan, who they confused with Bremer, not the same animal

and when one really thinks about what many of us find suspect here, is the record of Rand Paul. Please excuse the formatting on this post and that some text and links are repeated:

You'll enjoy her take on the man who always attaches Personhood laws on bills. He knows that Obama will veto them, and that Obama is standing up for us in ways those who don't know what is going on never will. Those who haven't done the research and support him on his filibuster, don't know why they aren't taken seriously on anything else.

If anyone really wants to know where Rand Paul and his white liberal friends are coming from, read this article all the way through. It explains most of the questions some ask about the TOS:

Of Broken Clocks, Presidential Candidates, and the Confusion of Certain White Liberals
Posted on January 12, 2012

...Attention to all self-proclaimed liberals and progressives.

I would like to properly introduce you to a man about whom you’ve heard much — especially from his enemies and those who prefer a continuation of the status quo — but at whom you might wish to take a second look, and whom you might consider supporting for president.

Unlike Barack Obama, he supports an immediate end to our current and ongoing wars abroad.

Unlike Barack Obama, he supports an end to predator drone attacks by the United States military, which kill innocent civilians and foment growing hatred of America. He believes that the so-called “war on terror” as we’ve engaged it has undermined American freedoms at home and contributed to greater tensions and anti-American sentiment abroad...

Post #125 links to longer articles, with the text of the video posted here on DU by Thom Hartmann. Angry Black Lady's website goes a long way back and to the present. Devon Rex's links to the SPLC go into detail here as well, and those of us who remember the actions of the JBS or John Birch Society, begun by the Koch family and precursor to the Ron Paul and Patriot movement, know these people are bad news.

It is packaged to draw liberals in on certain issues, but the larger questions they ignore are very telling and the end result is fascism. When people ask 'Where are the liberal voices' the answer is they are in Congress and the Senate fighting these militarisitic schemes but within the context as well, but it is not publicized. I've googled and found that many hair on fire threads are based solely on what media says - that same media that promoted the Iraq War, fired those who opposed it and every other liberal voice. Because we are getting the news that is ALLOWED by conservative billionaires, not the facts at all. I would put the actual facts of what was going on at times and the statements of those voting yea or nay - they were not doing what they were being accused of.

If you want to bother, check my Journal. A lot of it is lighthearted and several things, but I've written and linked to many things there. I haven't gotten permission from Tim Wise to post the entire article, as it really explains the division that is being promoted.

It's not dismissive of whites or males, but it reveals the frustration of those who are not and don't consider our rights to be a philosophical online article. The ABL articles go into detail how coddling this group is destroying the lives of people that many of us know in person. Those whose bodies are being legislated. There is no magic in what Paulbots promote, just a shiny face on fascism - and this is their latest sand in the machine to stop Obama doing what needs to be done. He was part of the reason we are now stuck with the Sequester - he held up the debt ceiling and flood relief to push his Personhood bill. That's not a person who cares about life, here or elsewhere. His group dictates how to enable those around the world to deny women and the disabled their simple human rights.
