Media Infers Ron Paul Is A Terrorist
November 5th "Money Bomb" gimmick heavily played up by terrified establishment and goblin neocon bloggers

Having been forced to report on Ron Paul's record breaking donation drive yesterday, mainstream outlets seized the opportunity to emphasize the Guy Fawkes gimmick, that was used by grassroots organizers to draw attention to Paul's campaign, as a way of tacitly suggesting that the Congressman's message of freedom and limited government is synonymous with terrorism and anarchy.

A grassroots campaign unaffiliated with the official Paul campaign was the catalyst for a huge $4.2 million cash infusion yesterday, putting the campaign well on course to raise $12 million by the end of the quarter and bringing Paul close to being the top fundraiser among the Republican candidates.

The Following headlines, however, chose not to lead with this information and instead to firstly draw attention to the November 5th theme:

Ron Paul Raises $3.68 Million on Guy Fawkes Day - NY Times

Financial Fireworks for Texas Republican Presidential Candidate - Wired

A penny for the guy, a hundred bucks for Ron Paul - CNet

"Historians and British schoolchildren remember Guy Fawkes as the Roman Catholic, anti-Protestant rebel who on Nov. 5, 1605, tried to assassinate King James I by blowing up the Parliament. Supporters of the Republican primary campaign of the libertarian Representative Ron Paul may remember Fawkes as a wildly successful fund-raising gimmick", writes the NY Times.

(Article continues below)

"On Monday, a group of Paul supporters helped raised more than $4.07 million in one day — approaching what the campaign raised in the entire last quarter — through a Web site called ThisNovember5th.com, a reference to the day the British commemorate the thwarted bombing." continues the article in the first two paragraphs.

More of this kind of stuff comes from CNN. In the following clip from Wolf Blitzer's show, the anchor wastes little time in tying the Ron Paul fundraising campaign to the gunpowder plot to "blow up the Houses of Parliament," despite the fact that the date was patently chosen as a gimmick to make people remember to donate and has nothing to do with 400-year old British history:

Rolling Stone magazine went one better, explicitly linking the Congressman's cash infusion with terror and anarchy:

"I don’t know what’s more amazing — the sum total. Or the fact that this Republican fund-raising surge this is all somehow in honor of terrorist, er, anarchist, er, V-For-Vendetta antihero Guy Fawkes."

The article has drawn huge swathes of attention from angry Ron Paul supporters at pains to point out that Ron Paul's endorsement of a strong free market and limited government and is the very antithesis of anarchism, it is what is directly written in the Constitution of the United States, it literally is law and order.

"We don’t want anarchy, we want The Constitution. It’s not something new, it is the law of the land. Do you get your talking points from Bill O’reilly?", writes one commenter.

The spin used here is astounding, clearly disgruntled by having to admit Ron Paul now must be considered a top tier candidate, and terrified of the Congressman's growing success, the establishment and others cannot merely report the fact that Ron Paul has raised record breaking millions via somewhere in the region of 35,000 individual donations.

Instead they spin this incredible display of grassroots organization knowing that the neocon blogs will run wild with it, now they can no longer declare Ron Paul's widespread support to be the work of "spambots".

And as expected the first set of twisted reality denying neocon goblins to disseminate their poison was once again, the Michelle Malkin worshipping dirt-sniffers over at Hot Air (please don't visit their filth den, it only encourages them), who went with the "could it be any more yellow?" headline Ron and the Paulbots celebrate a terrorist by raising $3.5 mil.

We keep returning to this key quote but in this instance it's meaning is even more relevant:

"First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, then you win."
- Mahatma Gandhi.

Meanwhile, others, while having to now admit Paul is a top tier candidate, have attempted to spin the amazing outpouring of support for Ron Paul as an indication of great "alienation" in America. The Baltimore Sun writes:

That so many people have invested so much in someone who stands such little apparent chance of winning his party’s presidential nomination, let alone the White House, speaks volumes about alienation in modern American politics.

It is the same alienation that once handed H. Ross Perot close to 20 percent of the presidential vote. It is the same alienation that handed Ralph Nader just enough of the vote to deny Democrat Al Gore an Electoral College victory to accompany his popular-vote majority.

Though they still underplay Ron Paul's chances, in many ways the Sun is correct. What we are seeing is about more than Ron Paul. We are witnessing an awakening, Ron Paul is just one man, along with a growing movement of truth seekers, who have been continually prodding a sleeping giant.

The November 5th infusion shows that the people have power and the idea we don't is an illusion. The old line establishment media is in crisis, their popularity is dwindling and they have to act like movements generated by internet organisation do not equate to real people. More and more people are realizing that they can inject themselves into real issues and that there is great hope as long as there is still a willingness to effect change.
