Ron Paul is an ass-clown, Part 3

Here's the short version. Ron Paul was asked by a moonbat about investigating the events of 9/11 to determine if it was an "inside job". Paul's answer was some sort of platitude about "looking into it".

Here is why his answer renders him an ass-clown and a moral leper.

There are some ideas which are so odious that anyone holding them has taken himself outside the boundaries of civilized society. Someone who wishes to re-segregate the public schools in order to "keep the nigger bucks from sniffing around our white girls" is such a person. Someone who denies the Holocaust or suggests that since the Jews have been persecuted throughout history that they must be doing something to deserve it is another such person.

The belief that the events of 9/11 were the work of the United States government or the Israeli Mossad or Dick Cheney's personal operatives is on that level of malignant nuttiness which signals the world that your best contribution to the future of the human race would come from having your internal organs distributed among people in need of transplants with the leftovers being reduced to fertilizer to nourish the corn fields of the Midwest.

In other words you join ranks with other oxygen thieves like Rosie O'Donnell, Michael Moore, Cindy Sheehan, CAIR or any Islamist cleric raving in his mosque.

When you are a politician on the stump and someone reveals themselves to be borderline retarded by asking why we don't implement Kyoto right now before the earth is engulfed in flames from the runaway global warming the appropriate thing is to be polite and move on to the next question before the fool embarrasses himself any further. But when someone reveals an attitude which is truly hateful and malignantly evil by asking whether you think that 9/11 was caused by the Bush administration acting alone or if they had help from the Joooos then the LAST thing you do is say that you'll "look into it" and move on.

The correct answer for Paul to have given is something like this:

Young man that kind of thinking is sickening. To suggest that the President of the United States or the Vice President or any other agency of the US government or any of our allies could have staged a terrorist attack on our own soil which killed 3000 of our own citizens, and could have killed many times that number but for the grace of God, is so utterly beyond the pale that not only will I not elevate it by giving it a serious answer I'll say this. If I thought that the only way for me to win the White House is to court the vote of such a degenerate and disgusting lunatic fringe then I would withdraw from this race this second. Whoever has been filling your head with that kind of thinking is not your friend or the friend of this nation. I urge you in the strongest possible terms to separate yourself from any person or group which spreads filth like that and to rejoin the rest of us in the land of the sane.

Paul's later attempt to slither out of the crosshairs by telling an interviewer that he really didn't support an investigation into 9/11 because you could never really trust the results of that kind of thing anyway doesn't help him. It seems to reveal that he is still willing to entertain the possibility, but doesn't have any faith in any investigative body to get to the truth, so why bother.

I don't know if Paul really believes that Cheney pushed the plunger on a controlled demolition on 9/11 or not. But it seems clear that Paul does not wish to alienate that segment of the voting public. If the Klan or some group of neo-Nazis started publicly supporting Giuliani or Romney or Thompson they would exceed the speed of light getting to a microphone to denounce and disavow and condemn them and everything they stand for. Why doesn't Paul seem to be in any hurry to distance himself from a group of equally poisonous cretins?
