Lighter News: The Conscience of a Ron Paul Supporter

This one comes from Sultan Knish, who writes the following:

Ever wonder what goes on inside the head of a Ron Paul supporter who isn't a giant racist and actually has to rationalize supporting a blatantly lying candidate? Here you can have a look at how a Ron Paul supporters off the Ron Paul forums reacts to the revelations about the newsletters, tries to cope with it and adopts a "party line" which he doesn't really believe himself.

It's an instructive look not only inside the Ron Paul campaign but inside a mind warped by propaganda and finding no choice but to "learn to love big brother" in the form of Ron Paul.

It's a story told in screenshots of how the human mind adapts to believing in lies. Since it's graphic intensive, it's rendered in a separate screen.
This article needs to be seen to be believed. We all knew that the Paultards were delusional freaks who would bend over backwards to defend Ron Paul, but rarely do we see one who is willing to chronicle his thought process, out loud, from beginning to end. The next time you're dealing with a particularly stubborn Paultard, I recommend that you point them to this article, so that everyone can have a good laugh at DaronWestbrooke's expense.

Keli Ata, a commenter at Sultan's blog, writes the following:
I'm pretty sure there's a psychological term for when one person's ego becomes so totally dependent upon a cult figure that a failure of one is the failure of the other. Daron isn't only defending Ron Paul--he's also defending himself

I disagree with your assessment of the article.

This is not Lighter News.

This not something to have a good laugh at.

This is an example of an impressionable teenager willing to indulge in lying about the facts because he is blinded by loyalty to his candidate.

This is cultism.

The sooner the media demands Ron Paul to start naming names, the better.

I read your analysis of the Paultard's transformation from truther to faker:

I think this a better analysis of what happened than the original post.

And I stand by my original assessment that it's not hilarious - it's disturbing.

On a lighter note...

One of the threads shows that Paultard has made it to the Urban Dictionary.

Allow me to declare that the Paultard entry quoted was my work.

And yes, I am proud of myself.

Reply to Martin Luther King post:

You failed to debunk the several 'myths' of Martin Luther King. I have noticed all throughout your blog that you have accused this congressman of associating with 'racist' people, and you seem to conclude that he is a racist himself through these connections. Thats fair, but you would also need to apply the same rule for MLK Jr, with his connections to Communism.

In 1957 MLK attended a meeting at the Highlander Folk School in Monteagle Tennessee. It was founded by Myles Horton (Communist party organizer in TN) and Don West (NC Communsit party organizer). From 1955 to the early 60's, MLK's associate, advisor, and personal secretary was one Bayard Rustin. Rustin joined the Communist League at New York City college in 1936.

I could go on and on with these facts. But is it safe to assume that MLK was a communist?
