"R" for Revolution

I watched both videos over at Town Hall. So that's how he did it. His supporters must be crazy about him... or just plain crazy!

So Ron Paul had to go all the way back to Guy Fawkes and the Gunpowder Plot to get his message out.

It's interesting that his supporters resort to an English Catholic terrorist intent on killing Protestant Parlimentarians so as to bring about a new order in England. Later, those Protestant Parlimentarians, rather their decendents, would become the enemies of the English American Colonies.

The second clip was interesting, too. When it came to the climactic moment to show the flag to celebrate the Independence of America and our rebellious nature, Ron Paul's supporters chose the 1812 Overture by Tchaikovsky which narrates the invasion of Russia by French forces led by Napolean. The section sampled was the cannons firing and the Marseilles (the French national anthem) blaring loudly as the French attacked Moscow. The French lost and were forced out of Russia in ignominious defeat.

So what does all this have to do with the United States of America? Do Ron Pauls supporters know nothing of history? Do they also know nothing of the meanings behind the symbolism they tried so ineptly to propagandize? Couldn't they find any American examples?

I'm quite disappointed with the Paulbots of late. Ever since my "Let's bash Ron Paul" weekend here and at FA, they seem to be ignoring me.

That, my friends, is the harshest form of criticism.
