Despite the fact that it's mathematically impossible for Ron Paul to earn the GOP nomination, the douchebaggery among Paultards is still alive and well. HMBeast over at DailyKos reports the following story, about a Paultard Campaign Worker who decided to trespass a local high school with pro-Paul propagandas, urging kids to skip school on April 15th on a so-called "Truth Strike." The Paultard, Joe Baker of Burlington, WI, is also a 9/11 truther. Big surprise! Here's a report of HMBeast's conversation with him:
You ever notice how Paultards are completely incapable of forming their own arguments, or recognizing what an argument even is. Instead, it's "google this," and "youtube that." Ironic, considering how they like to boast about how they and they alone are well informed and capable of critical thought, where as everyone else is a sheep. Really, the average Paultard doesn't give a crap about reason or logic. What they're interested in is the general feeling of being convinced. And they hope that if they can point other people to the same video, then the same feeling will be communicated to them as well. But when it comes to breaking down the basic arguments restating those arguments in their own words? That's when they fall short.
Me: Sir, not to be rude, but you do realize that you're handing out fliers about the income tax to high school students, students who don't pay the income tax and probably don't care?
Joe Baker: But you will pay the income tax soon! The income tax is unconstitutional (see note below) and fraudulent.
Me: How is the government supposed to pay for things like this school that you're on right now without the taxpayer's money?
Joe Baker: What you'll see if you listen to this series of audiotapes, is that we don't need a government at all.
Me: Good luck with that.
Readers may remember our story from last February, when hundreds of anonymous Paultards decided to spam a math teacher's personal livejournal blog, for the high crime of showing actual campaign data regarding Ron Paul. Apparently, showing a real world application of mathematical principles is completely antithetical to the average Paultard. The Paultards responded by maintaining their usual levels of civility; posting the guy's personal information online and tracking his movements.
Some may accuse the Paultards of hypocrisy on this one, but actually, they're pretty consistent. The Paultards aren't against bias in public schools, or using public schools to push an agenda (or lack thereof.). No, the Paultards have an agenda that's deadset against learning itself.
