If You Need Evidence Republicans Are Idiots…


Look no further than Republican Congressional aide Benjamin Rothenberg. On his Facebook page, Rothenberg took a gratuitous — and grammatically incorrect — swipe at an icon of the liberty movement, Lew Rockwell.

“Hi Lew, your (sic) an idiot just like your Paulitard and OWS friends. Have a nice day and remember, nobody gives a damn what you have to say.”

Rothenberg has 2,887 “friends” on Facebook. Lew Rockwell’s Facebook page has 26,569 “likes.” And Rockwell has thousands of subscribers who receive daily emails from him, so apparently there are quite a number of people who care about what Rockwell has to say.

Rothenberg is listed as director of New Media and press aide for Representative Thaddeus McCotter, whose campaign for the Republican nomination lasted about 10 minutes. What does it say about McCotter that he’s employed an illiterate and incredibly stupid man for a press aide?

This shows how the elites in the Republican Party loathe and despise Ron Paul and his followers. But the GOP needs to tread carefully where Ron Paul supporters are concerned. Mitt Romney may think he has the GOP nomination in his pocket, but he’ll never win in the general election if the GOP alienates Paul supporters.
