WATCH: Glenn responds to Ron Paul’s despicable tweets about Chris Kyle’s murder

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

America, I want you to give me a couple of minutes here.

I want to ponder what I’m saying to you, and hear me clearly. As a family, state and nation grieves for one of its brightest, bravest heroes, there is one among us with another agenda in mind.

Over this last weekend here in Texas Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle, a man who served four tours of duty in two wars. He received not one but two silver stars, five bronze stars with valor. A husband, a father, a son. An unquestioned Patriot. A man who didn’t talk about Jesus but lived his Christian belief was senselessly murdered by a fellow veteran he was just trying to help.

He’s not a doctor. He didn’t pretend to be a doctor. He was helping a friend. That’s it. But yesterday in something I couldn’t believe happened. Yesterday former congressman Ron Paul took to that brave platform we all call Twitter and tweeted this: Chris Kyle’s death seems to confirm that “he who lives by the sword dies by the sword”. Treating PTSD at a firing range doesn’t make sense.

Well Dr. Paul he wasn’t treating it. I’m sorry that you listened to the media. I thought you knew better than that. After all, aren’t you a guy who just loves to blame the media on cover-ups on things like Tower 7. Suddenly you rush to believe the media that he somehow or another had his stethescope out and was treating someone.

Dr. Paul, as I have said many times we share many ideas about freedom and the Constitution and I know you fought hard for the Constitution over the years. But as I have also said many times we disagree on a good number of issues. But even those who disagree can respect each other. And I’ve had healthy respect for what you tried to accomplish for the cause of liberty.

I understand so unbelievably clearly that you don’t like the foreign wars our nation has been involved in. I understand that you’ve been fighting against them from day number one, and I also understand that some of us haven’t. But some of us are at a different level of understanding. We’re not all Dr. Paul now.

But Chris Kyle and those like him are not the policy makers, doctor. As Americans, we don’t go over to the graves of even the German soldiers from World War II and dance on them – because it’s what sets us apart. A fundamental respect for life.

Would you tweet something similar about someone who smokes? “Well, He died of cancer. huh?He who lives by the cigarette dies by the cigarette?”

Would you tweet the same thing about those involved in auto accidents? How about pilots, and those in the muted media? Is this how you would react if some doctor would make some staement about Rock Hudson or Freddie Mercury?

Somehow or another I think not.

Chris Kyle gave all that he had as a volunteer for his country. In a nation that doesn’t require mandatory service on anything, doesn’t even require responsibility anymore, we rely on those few who’re truly special, those few who’re driven to put their lives where their beliefs are, and Chris Kyle did so repeatedly.

Dr. Paul, so many Americans admire you because you were willing to put yourself out there in Washington for a cause in which you believe. Chris Kyle was no different. He was willing to put himself out there for a cause in which he believed. Except he did it with other people actually shooting at him in the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan.

Quite honestly what Ron Paul wrote yesterday sounds more of the ramblings of Code Pink, the New Black Panthers, or the Westboro Church. I can’t decide which one you’ve gained a membership in – maybe all of them. It’s more the statements of members of one of those organizations than an elder statesman newly retired from office in the service of United States of America.

It’s beneath you, Dr. Paul.

You know what one of our problems is as a country? We’re no longer decent to one another. ANd I know there are many who would say ‘Talk about the pot calling the kettle black’. I know. I know. But see, that’s the point of being human. Recognizing your mistakes and then trying to be better the next day. When you assess a problem, when you know what we shouldn’t be in all of these foreign wars. You admit your mistake and you move forward. You know, we shouldn’t have the PATRIOT Act because they didn’t mean the sunset. Then what are you going to do? Honesty and decency is required.

What I want to say is not always what should be said. Example, right now to Dr. Ron Paul. Why shouldn’t it be said? Because we should be civil to one another. And we’ve all said things that we shouldn’t have said. And maybe that’s the way Ron Paul feels about this tweet last night. Maybe he regrets this serious, serious error in judgment. I hope so.

I hope that his isolationist views when it comes to the US military hasn’t blinded him that he can’t take a pause and reflect on life of the sacrifice, and the courage and honor of the men and women that put their lives every single day because Congress and President demand it. Because liberty demands it. Even if you disagree.

Ron Paul and to his supporters, I deal in the free speech. I deal in the First Amendment every single day. And I know unlike like most that freedom of speech that amendment the only real speech that requires protection is the speech like this that others might find ugly and offensive. I find Ron Paul’s speech ugly and offensive. But I defend his right to say it. And I would not violate nor ask anyone else violate it by having him silenced. More speech, not less speech. But it requires all of us in responsible ways to respond. Because that is the right that so many like Chris Kyle fought for.

I’m becoming more and more Libertarian every day. I love these people who just that pretend they were born Libertarian. I’m sorry I’m imperfect. I guess I’m an imperfect species, but I’m learning something new every day. And I learned a few years ago – I think it was six years I started calling for the troops to return home. Again today I called for an end to the war. Like Ron Paul I’ve been calling for this war to be over and our troops to be pulled out of not just the Middle East but also Europe. What are we doing in Asia anymore?

I know that’s not good enough for some Libertarians, and that’s fine. Because if kicking a man who’s now dead or kicking a family when they’re down makes one a Libertarian, let me tell you something, you so-called “guardians of liberty” have grossly misread what is required for man to look like himself. And for man to create a civil society we must first be civil to each other.

For those in this audience who have wondered over and over again why I haven’t, and why I could never support Ron Paul, this should finally answer your question.

    What is really despicable is Glenn Beck’s worship of the military. War is mass-murder wrapped in a pretty flag. Glenn just LOOOOOVES the flag. The reality is that Chris Kyle murdered people. That is what he did. He protected invaders from the local citizenry that wants the US empire out of their land. Chris Kyle not only was a murderer, he was a liar. The nonsense that he spouted about Governor Jesse Ventura was slanderous libel. The reality is that the USA is fomenting hatred around the world. Regrettably, many people now wish to harm us as a result of the wars we have started. Furthermore, there are tens of thousands of war vets that are returning to the USA after having been in country for 7+ tours.  Many of them have been desensitized to killing. Many of them are mentally unstable. Many of them are taking psychotropic medications, like SSRI’s, that affect the brain’s ability to function normally. 
       If you think that the Viet Nam war produced psychopaths that were unstable (remember the post office massacres of the 1980′s?), just wait until these lunatics begin to unleash their fury on us. columbine will look like a church picnic. Per usual, patriot statesman, Dr. Ron Paul is right and Mr. Morning Zoo “Rodeo Clown”, Glenn Beck, is wrong. Big surprise.

    obviously you have NO clue as to what freedom or patriotism is.  You want to blame someone for murders… look at congress… those that sent him to war.  The military does not make policies.  They go and do what people like you are too cowardly to do, yet enjoy the very freedom provided and ensured to you by them.  Get a clue…  Unfortuantely there are many sheeple out there like you, that are quick to label military and unstable… mental, murderers.  What have you done to earn your freedom?  What have you done for your country?  Oh thats right,.  you are one of those sheeple that think they are ENTITLED to everything…. my mistake.

    Have you contacted Ron Paul to see if this tweet actually came from him or is it his twitter rep’s words? Does Ron Paul actually get on his smart device and Tweet? Or does he have someone who manages his social media? This has happened to Paul before where things are printed that were not his words.

    Mr. David Williams,  You are the one who is wrong.  You are so filed with hate you have no respect for what Mr. Beck is calling attention to.  Every person who serves faithfully and honorably in our military is a true hero.  you spout hate only because someone died in order to protect your freedom of speech.  The people in our military are not murderers.  They are and will always be heroes in my eyes. That being said, long live our Constitution and our Bill of Rights which gives us freedom of speech.

    Williams you are an idiot.  I guess in 1940 when it looked like Germany was going to conquer Europe and Japan attached us in 1941, you would not have gone to war because it’s mass murder.

  • Draxx

    David the Propagandist, and how many tens of thousands of soldiers come back and live normal lives (even though they have served multiple tours of combat duty)?  You are only talking about the bad side!  And don’t forget the US Gov’t SENT THEM THERE FOR COMBAT DUTY.

    As a former soldier myself, I Never joined the Army just because I thought, Wow I can go kill other people in other countries legally.  I was Forced to follow orders or go to Federal Prison (wow what a nice choice) or get a Dishonorable Discharge if I was lucky.  But, I chose to follow orders because that is what a soldier does (and yes I had serious problems with some of those orders).  You are forgetting that the Gov’t is the Brains Behind the Destruction, and the Soldier is the Trigger Finger doing what the brain told it to do…

    So, if anybody is Liable for the Deaths of those people it is Our Gov’t. If anybody is Murdered from Soldiers Serving Combat Duty, then it is Our Gov’t Murdering Them!  Get your head out of your ass, because it is Obvious You Never Served Your Country!!!

    Sorry Glenn but please do not say that anyone who has over 150 confirmed kills “lived his Christianity”  I’m not judging Mr. Kyle, he was a soldier and he did his job, but anyone (in this case Glenn) who honestly thinks that Jesus Christ would be in favor of war and the mass killing of people, because there government told them it was okay, is an idiot.  Also, sorry Glenn but Mr. Paul actually served our country in the military, so for you to make flippant comments such as Ron Paul took to that brave format of twitter.  Where are your military credentials Glenn?  Chicken hawk

     Patrick Henry, who called government soldiers “engines of despotism”
    knew  a thing or two about freedom and patriotism. Seems you know a thing or two about name-calling and not much more. Glenn Beck suggests that We the People NEVER resort to violence if the police or military show up at our door, yet he (and apparently, you) fully supports the people who perpetrate violence in other lands. Jesus had a name for people like you…”thou art HYPOCRITES”.

    To quote one of Mr. Beck’s favorite authors:

    RULE 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense.
    It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point
    to force the enemy into concessions.”

    So, the men who pull the trigger are completely absolved
    from responsibility for their actions simply because they are “following orders”
    from Congress? Well, if we follow your logic then all of the Nazis are
    absolved; same with the Soviets and the Communists under Mao. Oh wait. They
    aren’t absolved because they have a choice. American soldiers especially
    since, as Mr. Beck stated, it is a volunteer army. Nobody makes them go. They
    choose to do so, and they could choose not to do so. As Mr. Beck loves to say,
    yet discourages people from actually practicing, “Silence in the face of evil
    is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not
    to act is to act.”

    And in what universe is someone a coward for choosing not
    to go abroad and murder people? That is some incredibly twisted reasoning.

    Really? I was a soldier too. I refused to go. I did not receive a dishonorable or bad conduct discharge. I did not go to prison. In fact, they did nothing. Muhammad Ali also refused to murder people (and was jailed for it) but he had his dignity when he was done.
    Your argument of ‘I was just following orders” did not work for the nazi war criminals, Lt. Calley (Mi Lai Massacre), etc, etc. So if I understand you correctly, you will do whatever you are told in order to save your own behind from potential consequences? Well, there is a name for people like you. Coward.

    There is a time for everything, and everything on earth has its special season.

    2
    There is a time to be born and a time to die. There is a time to plant and a time to pull up plants.

    3
    There is a time to kill and a time to heal. There is a time to destroy and a time to build.

    4
    There is a time to cry and a time to laugh. There is a time to be sad and a time to dance.

    5
    There is a time to throw away stones and a time to gather them. There is a time to hug and a time not to hug.

    6
    There is a time to look for something and a time to stop looking for
    it. There is a time to keep things and a time to throw things away.

    7
    There is a time to tear apart and a time to sew together. There is a time to be silent and a time to speak.

    8
    There is a time to love and a time to hate. THERE IS A TIME FOR WAR AND A TIME FOR PEACE.

    9
    Do people really gain anything from their work?

    10
    I saw the hard work God has given people to do.

    11
    God has given them a desire to know the future. He does everything
    just right and on time, but people can never completely understand what
    he is doing.

    12
    So I realize that the best thing for them is to be happy and enjoy themselves as long as they live.

    13
    God wants all people to eat and drink and be happy in their work, which are gifts from God.

    14
    I know that everything God does will continue forever. People cannot
    add anything to what God has done, and they cannot take anything away
    from it. God does it this way to make people respect him.

    15
    What happens now has happened in the past, and what will happen in
    the future has happened before. God makes the same things happen again
    and again.

    16
    I also saw this here on earth: Where there should have been justice,
    there was evil; where there should have been right, there was wrong.

    17
    I said to myself, God has planned a time for every thing and every action, so he will judge both good people and bad.

    18
    I decided that God leaves it the way it is to test people and to show them they are just like animals.

    19
    The same thing happens to animals and to people; they both have the
    same breath, so they both die. People are no better off than the
    animals, because everything is useless.

    20
    Both end up the same way; both came from dust and both will go back to dust.

    21
    Who can be sure that the human spirit goes up to God and that the spirit of an animal goes down into the ground?

    22
    So I saw that the best thing people can do is to enjoy their work,
    because that is all they have. No one can help another person see what
    will happen in the future.

    You are obviously a moron. Thousands upon thousands of men and women have died for this country so you have the right to spew your bullcrap.No one is more aware of how senseless and brutal war can be then the soldier in combat. Unfortunately the price of continued freedom doesn’t come easily it requires sacrifice sometime the ultimate sacrifice. That means people will be injured and people will die. If it was up the delusional dreamland dopes like you we would all be speaking German or Japanese and living under dictatorship. It is sad that you are so obtuse to this fact. Do us a favor and move to one of the countries where we are fomenting hatred . How’s Iran sound? You wouldn’t last a minute you pathetic loser!

    Since when is patriotism murdering people over a phony claim of WMD’s? You clowns keep looking for Hitler under the label of “progressivism” when the real truth is we invaded Iraq the same way Hitler invaded Poland, his people duped with trumped up propaganda as he committed an act of criminal aggression, and it was Beck and Pat Gray who were the screaming cheerleaders for this act of unjustified mass murder.  Bush, Beck, the whole damned gang of you kooks turned this country’s military into the equivalent of the Waffen SS, murdering women and children with ‘Shock and Awe’ cruise missile attacks for NOTHING. This guy’s work was nothing more than murder, killing people who were doing nothing more than fighting an invader who invaded them in an act of naked, criminal aggression. While I cannot fault this man for being suckered by the criminals who committed the act of mass murder known as “The War In Iraq”, only a fool at this point believes it was anything less than that, and this nation has been cursed and punished by God ever since, and it was you people who cheered this work of evil all the the way, and you wonder why your world is collapsing around you.

    I agree with David,

    Furthermore, Chris Kyle wasn’t quite the hero that everybody thought he was. There’s an inside story. Frankly, there is a possibility that the government wanted Kyle dead.
     
    When are people going to learn that it is unwise to idolize men who they personally know little or nothing about, other then how these “heros” are portrayed by the MSM. Remember how Lance Armstrong was supposed to be this wonderful, larger-than-life guy who helped people out of the goodness of his heart? Wise up, people, and stop being suckered.
     
    amerika runs drugs. amerika runs guns. amerika tortures people. amerika drones innocent people to death. amerika hires terrorists as proxy fighters. amerika is a super-banana republic. amerika is a bread-and-circus empire full of ignorant clowns. Glenn Beck doesn’t know the whole story, and he’s just now starting to really, really distrust his own government. Ron Paul is far more clued in than Glenn Beck, but I hope Glenn continues to wake up. 
     
    Glenn, what if Chris Kyle was a psychopath who enjoyed killing? What if Kyle was a phony psycho with a gun, not just a bike. Glenn, what if Chris Kyle was paid off by the government to become a character assign by claiming he punched out Jesse Ventura? Glenn, why don’t you have a real hero, Jesse Ventura, on your show and ask him to clue you in about what goes on inside the government? What if Chris Kyle was nothing more than government trained killing/lying machine who loved his work and knew to much for his own good? Maybe Chris died by the very same hand that murdered JFK, i.e., the black hands of government killers.
     
    That old man, Ron Paul, know a thing or two about living and dying by the sword of government, and much of what Dr. Paul knows he doesn’t reveal because he would be attacked by some ex-rodeo clown who doesn’t know half as much as he thinks he knows……

     I will agree that many thousands of men and women have died in the service of this country.  However, those who died in the wars in Iraq under both Bush’s didn’t die for any of our rights.  Those who fought and died in Korea and Vietnam weren’t protecting our rights.  They died for political theatre.  What rights were the four Americans that died in Benghazi protecting?  There are no Congressional declarations of war and thus our military is being used Unconstitutionally to forward someones political agenda.  Obama has started a couple of wars without even consulting Congress.  People have been brainwashed into believing that they must either vote for an R or a D.  All that gets us is the same big government party.  The right wing of that party grows government just as quickly as the left wing.  In the last election, 70% of people who bothered to even vote didn’t know that the Constitution is the supreme law of the land.  Around 68% couldn’t name the tree branches of government.  Around 65% didn’t know the role of the Judicial branch.  Unless we start educating our children, this Republic is finished.

    first i would like to say how sorry i am for chris kyle’s family and friends. i agree with dr.paul in that treating ptsd at a firing range doesn’t make sense. i also think that pointing that out will make others who might try the same thing stop and think about maybe arranging it with the mental health providers on a case by case basis not just running off and doing something without knowledge of psychology or individual cases. the people including chris kyle made a very bad mistake. they tried to do a kind and generous thing and it went tragically wrong. dr. paul has a problem sometimes with things coming out wrong but i believe he was sincere and meant no harm or disrespect. i would give him the advice of slowing down and putting a lot more thought into what he says and how he says it.

    Glenn–you are missing the broader point. 

    Routh got to that gun range because Kyle & Littlefield took him. That we know, Routh was one of the guys involved with Kyle’s FITCO association, helping veterans deal with PTSD and the aftermath of war.

    In hindsight, it seems incredibly obvious that it is a bad idea to take someone struggling with war related PTSD to a gun range where they are exposed to the sound of gunfire. It is tragic that Kyle & Littlefield died, and it is equally tragic that another young man will be paying for it with his loss of freedom, haunted by the reality of his actions, and still likely won’t get the help he really needs.

    Would you take a recently recovering alcoholic to a bar and put a drink in his hand, while all around him are yelling Cheers!? And then take the position, well it’s not MY fault he fell off the wagon?

    If you can’t see that Glenn, maybe you should come down off your high horse, take a step back, and recognize sometimes great people do some shortsighted things, and sometimes, those shortsighted actions have tragic, irreversible consequences.

        I listen to the Glenn Beck program every weekday.  He does say a lot that I agree with.  However, his claim that he is a Libertarian is laughable.  What Glenn Beck truly is first and foremost, is a Zionist conservative.  Zionist conservatives are a bit different than Neocons, for they are social conservatives who dislike interventions, except when it comes to Israeli foreign policy.  Neocons, however, share a lot of liberal views socially, but they are ardent imperialists.  The fact that he is a Zionist conservative, is the crux of his issues with Ron Paul, but he’s too hypocritical to admit it.  In fact, Glenn is quick to label anyone who disagrees about America’s support of Israel, as anti-Semitic.  But, he takes offense when people level accusations at him.
    He’s also quick to point out Palestinian terrorism, but won’t do the same about Israeli atrocities, occupation, and genocide.   Having served in the military, I disagree with Dr. Paul about his views on Chris Kyle’s unfortunate demise.  However, Dr. Paul has every right to feel the way he does, and to speak the way he has.  Glenn Beck is using Dr. Paul’s statement as a vehicle to destroy   Paul’s credibility and support with veterans like myself.  That’s classic Saul Alinski tactics which Beck often points to, although rightly so, that the current executive branch is using to divide and conquer.   Beck is trying to use that statement as a wedge issue, hoping to elevate himself as the leader of the Libertarian movement in America.  That’s why he always say ” I’m becoming more and more Libertarian everyday.”  What?  Being a Liberterian is not akin to swimming, where with practice, one can become a better swimmer.  You either are or you aren’t.  Granted, I wasn’t always a Libertarian, however, I had a sudden conversion, a dramatic paradigm shift when Bill Clinton enacted the Clinton Assault Weapons Ban, back in 1994.      In conclusion, I just want to say that I still like Dr. Paul, but I think he’s off the mark about his sentiments about Kyle.  And yes, I still like Glenn Beck, although I know him to be a die-hard Zionist-Conservative, and a hypocrite.  Glenn is a good guy, with flaws like all of us.  Just know that he can’t be trusted with objectivity, when it comes to our policy in the Middle-East, and he will try to discredit anyone who has an opposing view. (i.e. Sen. Chuck Hagel)

    i wish people would learn the difference between an isolationist and not being the worlds police whether the country wants you there or not. ron paul is not an isolationist, an isolationist is one who wants no involvement in anything at all to do with world affairs. libertarians want to be involved in world affairs by talking and building a relationship of trust and mutual agreement. some countries wont go along but that’s not a reason to decide it’s up to us to force them to adhere to our principles. we cannot help or support evil dictators who mistreat their own people just for  short term peace in the world. those people then grow to hate you and want to kill you, we can’t go and cause bigger problems in the future. just look at the mess we have in the middle east, if we stayed out of it in the first place the problem wouldn’t be near as bad. yes some people will hate you no matter what, but why make it worse?  the libertarians believe that we should only use force if an attack is imminent or already taken place.  that is what made us strong in the worlds eyes. it wasn’t until we became the worlds police force sticking our noses in everyone else’s business that we became weak and put our country in harms way. if people in other countries want to be idiots let them that;s their problem, if they mess with us then we step in and take care of business. we use the gadson flag for the tea party movement but does anyone remember what it means? it means leave us alone and we will leave you alone, but if you mess with us we will strike.

    It seems as though the more people one kills in the Middle East, the more they are revered and celebrated.  Sickening.  Chris Kyle’s only regret was that he couldn’t ‘kill more of those savages’, implying that those people were subhuman. I can only think of the judgement Kyle is now receiving before God.

  • landofaahs

    Oh Glenn does your hate for Ron Paul ever stop?  As a Christian I would not be proud of killing fellow human beings even though it is necessary.  Your whole problem with Ron Paul is because he does not worship the state of Israel and does not believe we american’s should be bled dry in a never ending police state around the world.  Although Kyle deserves respect for his service, I would disagree strongly about our country’s droning all over the middle-east. I believe what Ron Paul is saying that you are not civil to others when you bomb them and in the process kill innocent children in the process.  It’s one thing to have to do these things because they have to be done.  It is quite another thing to glory in it.
    I’m sorry but our soldiers are being used and their patriotism taken advantage of .  You suddenly have this I’ve been against the wars after all of your defense of it in the Bush years, smacks of hypocrisy.  Ron Paul is correct though “We reap what we sow and sometimes the innocent pick up the tab for it instead of the people most responsible for it”  Kyle is yet another casualty in a war that was prosecuted in the wrong way.  In my flawed opinion.

    I don’t know who you’re talking about, but you’re making some terribly wrong assumptions about me.
    I don’t have Muslims. I have lived abroad, with Muslims as neighbors, I have studied Islam, I have no problem. It is a great religion of peace. I have problems with fundamentalists of all stripes. I don’t think all Muslims or all Palestinians are terrorists, subhuman, dogs, or whatever. The problem is with the Palestinian leadership. They are corrupt, and steal their people’s money. Arafat’s widow is living like a queen in Paris with her people’s money. Their leaders have done nothing but declare war on Israel and walk away from every chance of peace. I also don’t think Israel is perfect. Obviously.

    But that has nothing to do with what you said. Accusations of genocide are a lie, using Zionist as a slur is offensive, and comparing Israel to nazis is antisemitism, according to the EU, UN and USA.

    I don’t hate Muslims, but you can’t say the same about Jews.

There’s a lot of parallel between the two states.  Indigenous peoples get their lands stolen by outsiders, and they’re relegated  to ghettos, and shanty towns, in absolutely deplorable conditions.  All the while, with the help and blessing of the American government.  Well, we know what happened in South Africa.  I hope the Israeli people learn that lesson, and fight for injustice everywhere, including in their own country.  I’m done!

    War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. ~ John Stuart Mill
    Jesse Ventura is an angry steroid-warped has-been who has on more than one occasion run-down America so it not much of a reach to believe he would insult dead SEALs (i.e. jealousy). Plus, when you add that Chief Kyle said he ran before Venture got up, I would say that is pretty plausible. As for Ventura, he lies constantly about being a Navy SEAL when he never underwent SEAL training (he was UDT). So, the reason Ventura brings a suit is to get some attention back to his pathetic life.

    You also simplify warfare to a pretty ridiculous caricature. Would you be so easy to condemn a police sniper if he shot a man holding a gun to your head? Would you feel the same if that same policeman saved the life of another trying to save a child from the same gunman? That is the position of a sniper. They are on overwatch of the battlespace to eliminate threats not only to US Forces, but to Allies and civilians from a hostile threat. They are not there to indiscriminately butcher individuals, but remove hostile personnel from the environment and save as many as possible.

    Another exaggeration is your 7+ tours, no one has seen more than four tours without volunteering and the average is 2. Also we are not mentally unstable as much as the media would like to slander us as they did our Vietnam brethren. You seem to engage in the same hobby by associating anything bad happening in the 70′s and 80′s with Vietnam Vets. Well, if you would have actually done even a minimal amount of research you would have found only one war Vet was involved in all those “Going Postal” events and only 9.1% of Vietnam Vets suffered disabling PTSD “at some time”. But don’t tell anyone that would ruin the myths.

    Chief Kyle was a patriot sent into a combat zone to do his duty as per his oath. He didn’t call the battlefield; Ron Paul did by voting for authorization for use of force in Afghanistan (and then lying that there was Constitutional justification for the War ~ HJ RES 64: 107th Congress).

    Ron Paul and Jesse Ventura are bombastic politicians who have long since forgotten what it means to serve the People and the Constitution and now only look to Power and to a means to serve themselves.

    Glenn always takes shots at Ron Paul because of Dr. Paul’s views on Israel; that’s it.  If he says anything else, he’s lying.  He covers that up, by dubbing Paul an isolationist.  He knows that’s not true, and I think he may have even called him anti-Jewish or anti-Semitic (I can’t be 100% certain about that, but I think I’ve heard him say it before)  That’s the Red Herring they always use to shut up debate about Israel.  My God, we can criticize Obama, Bush, Clinton, but we can’t say squat about the Israeli government 
    in our own country?  What the hell?????  Look at what the Democrats and the Republicans are doing to Chuck Hagel.  Beck even brought Rick Santorum on his show this morning, to do a “drive-by” on Hagel; I mean Santorum was particularly mean towards Hagel this morning, and blasted him mercilessly, all because Hagel dared to question the mighty Israeli lobby.  These guys respond almost the same way some Muslims act when someone offends their prophet.  The worst part is that most Americans are o.k. with that.  Well, I pledge allegiance to THE United States of America….1 nation under GOD…liberty and justice FOR ALL.

    You know what, I actually believe that you’re not really antisemitic. You’re just terribly misinformed.

    Indigenous peoples?
    Jews were on that land before Islam was created, before Arabs left Arabia. Jews are indigenous to the region, not Muslim Arabs. Arabs are there because of Muslim conquests in the first millennium. 
    Apartheid? There are a million Arab citizens of Israel with full civil rights. Arabs in the west bank and gaza are not Israelis. Apartheid was about discrimination against minority citizens, and that doesn’t apply to west bank and gaza arabs.
    Ghettos? There are no Arab refugee camps in Israel. The only Palestinian refugee camps are in Jordan, Lebanon and Iraq, where Palestinians are kept away from the rest of the population and not allowed to work. Arabs in Israel have full civil rights.
    Yes, truth is truth. Learn some.

    Well genius, the NRA never said that having a gun in the possession of a good guy, will prevent someone from getting killed. (get a grip pf the English language)  So, there you’re wrong already.  The NRA said “it takes a good guy with a firearm, to stop a bad guy with a firearm”.  Didn’t you take logic in school genius?  Like I said, you’re so smart, that you can’t grasp simple logic.    In addition, how do you know that others having firearm, didn’t scare the perpetrator into fleeing the premises, rather than hunt down untold number of innocents?    Because, I guarantee you, he would have been shot into oblivion, and he knew that.  So there “genius”, you simply don’t have what it takes to debate me, on just about anything.  You need to stop already.

    Jason, if you are gong to use quotes then actually quote what I said.  You instead you made up your own quote.  I said I was not judging Mr. Kyle myself. Since he was a soldier, he followed orders which I’m sure he believed to be good and correct.  This however is not living like Christ.  As for war and violence in the Bible, you are correct it is there. I would guess however that you are taking parts from the old testament.  I look to Christ as an example of how “he” lived.  This was most decidedly nonviolent.  Glenn himself brings up the nonviolent movements of Jesus Christ, MLK jr., and Ghandi on a regular basis.  The record of early Christianity also points to nonviolence in the face of Roman persecution.  Somewhere along the lines though, we decided that being a good Christian meant nonviolence in everyday life, but not in cases of warfare.  I can’t see Jesus saying to anyone “hey good job living my way at home, don’t worry about all those people you killed in wartime”

    Keep it real, nobody is condemning all snipers, cops, CIA, NSA or military men. On the other hand, do you really believe everything —–or almost everything, or even half of—-what you’re being told by your loving federal, state and local governments? Personally, I tend to side with those who are suspicious of government ( like Jesse Ventura) but you go right on ahead and support the troops, support the wars, support the CIA  and support the empire. Never mind that we lost in Vietnam, and now Iraqi ( just look at the chaos) and Afghanistan is sucking amerika dry. amerika overreacted after 911, and the U.S. is being turned into a technocratic police-state. Everyday I have less and less trust of the Military Industrial Complex.

    The Israeli Arabs are not going through the same thing, because they don’t hold lands; they have no territories that can be annexed illegally in order to build more settlements. However, the Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza, though poor, do have land.  As such, they’re systematically being oppressed, and their homes and businesses bulldozed, to create more settlements.  I’m well versed in govts. committing atrocities worldwide, not just in the Middle East.  By the way, the Jews that were there, were true Semitic people, as they are, according to the Bible, brothers of the Arabs (descendants of Ibrahim).  Semite (definition)= a group of Semitic-speaking peoples of the near East and northern Africa.  They were not Europeans.  So, myth evaporated; you’re a historical revisionist, regurgitating propaganda used to lay claim to others’ lands.  

    Also, can you enlighten me on one thing.  Doesn’t the Torah explicitly forbids the state currently known as Israel?  Lots of Jewish scholars and Rabbis point to this, but I’ve never heard an argument against it.  I just want to get the real facts from a genuine Jewish person, who obviously loves his country very much.  Don’t give me rhetoric, just facts that I can check out on my own for validity.

    This is a response I wrote earlier today to someone echoing Glenn’s “epic” rant about Ron Paul.  I think it’s worth repeating here.    Predictably,
    I disagree, and I find a great deal of irony in Ron Paul being
    castigated whenever he quotes Jesus Christ. They did the same to him
    when he suggested that we follow Biblical advice to treat others as we
    would have them treat us in our foreign
    policy. All of a sudden all the great Christians like Glenn Beck were
    howling with mockery and outrage at the idea that Christian beliefs
    might actually infiltrate our behaviors. Silly Ron Paul, doesn’t he
    know that Jesus’ statements are purely theoretical, and never to be
    applied in real life? So now Glenn Beck, monumental hypocrite and
    deludedly calling himself a Libertarian, is howling about Ron Paul
    pointing out what Jesus said about people who deal in death for a
    living- they tend to die the way they lived. Big surprise! Who could
    have seen that one coming? Gosh, I thought it was motorcycle crashes
    like T E Lawrence. Notice
    that he made no judgement whether Chris Kyle was a saint or a sadistic
    tool, because none of us know. The fact that he was wearing our
    nation’s uniform and received honors from a military industrial complex
    running amuck and serving a globalist elite doesn’t tell us a thing.
    Was he a true patriot? A psyops shill? A sell-out who was eliminated
    when his conscience began to awaken? We don’t know. Ron Paul doesn’t
    know, nor did he claim to know. He merely quoted Jesus Christ, the one
    mortal being with perfect knowledge, by stating that Chris Kyle, the
    Devil of Ramadi and author of “American Sniper,” had undeniably lived by
    the sword, and he very predictably died that way, too. Glenn
    Beck also was outraged about Ron Paul’s statement that a shooting range
    is not therapeutic for victims of PTSD. So is there something I don’t
    know about gun shots being akin to valium? Is a shooting range a great
    place to take someone with PTSD? Personally I don’t believe that whole
    story, nor the guilt of the accused. I think a contract hit more likely for someone with Chris Kyle’s high profile.   But I find some humor in the fact
    that the same people who condemn Adam Lanza’s mother for introducing
    him to firearms and allowing him access to a shooting range have quite
    the opposite opinion about Chris Kyle’s markedly similar activity. For the Mormons among us, a
    long time ago Ezra Taft Benson warned us that the events in the Book of
    Mormon are as fresh as today’s newspaper. In fact, so fresh as to be
    explanatory or predictive of current events. So with that in mind, I
    have to ask if you have ever read the story of the Zelph Mound? Joseph
    Smith and some companions blundered upon a large Hopewell era Indian
    mound in the Midwest, and Joseph shared some prophetic insights that he was
    given about the individual buried in and honored by the mound. He said
    that the man was Zelph, a large and mighty warrior and a righteous
    Lamanite, who had had his curse removed due to his righteousness. He
    said that Zelph had fought and died in the last great war with the
    Nephites. Joseph also gave the name of the great chieftain that Zelph
    served, Onandaigus. Well, isn’t that interesting? I’ll
    tell you what I find most significant about this. First, Zelph,
    although he was righteous, lived and died by the sword. So did Mormon. Killed by his enemies. 
    We don’t know about Moroni’s end but it’s quite possible that he was
    killed by his adversaries, the Lamanites. He was certainly hiding from
    them. These men’s upstanding morals didn’t exempt them from Jesus’
    axiom about living and dying by the sword. No moral judgement implied,
    that’s just how it is. Even a prophet can die by the sword, especially
    when he’s leading an army- living by the sword. Shocking!  Good guys on both sides?  Bad guys on both sides?  Oh my, you don’t suppose our world suffers from similar shades of grey, do you?  Secondly,
    the Book of Mormon was written by a prophet of God, fighting on the
    opposite side of the war from Zelph, also a righteous man. If Zelph had
    met the Prophet Mormon or his son Moroni, also a prophet, they would
    probably have felt obligated to fight each other to the death. How could
    that be, that good men should be fighting on opposite sides of a war and
    seeking one another’s lives? Well I’ll tell you.  Evil, fallen societies fielding evil,
    vicious armies; fighting each other; that’s how. Although
    these individuals were righteous, the overwhelming majority of their
    nations and their armies were so evil that God allowed the complete
    annihilation of one side, and a ravaging depopulation of the other. So
    are we any different from them these days? Are we doing God’s work by
    depopulating the Middle East? Are we being blessed by God for our
    actions as we personify Pres. John Adams’ warning: “There are two ways
    to enslave a nation. One is by war. The other is by debt.”?  (Notice that he doesn’t say specify invasion.  He says that a nation is enslaved by war, period.  Waging war costs the citizens their freedoms just as surely as a foreign invasion.)  We’re the poster child for both war and debt!  Are the blessings of God being poured out upon our righteous nation and armed forces?  Is
    every man who dons our country’s uniform and completes a tour of duty
    some kind of a saint, whom God will shield from the normal consequences
    of his life choices? From the usual hazards of his occupation? You
    might think so, I don’t. I don’t claim to know what kind of man Chris
    Kyle was, and I don’t think we’ll know until he stands before the
    Judgement Bar of God. It’ll be a heck of a show, and I don’t think that
    Glenn Beck will be selling tickets. Sweating, crying a lot
    maybe…….

It would be replaced with another flag.  And maybe in that country, honoring the flag would not be optional, but mandatory.  Americans have a choice to love the flag. In some countries, you would be killed for speaking out like David Williams. But thanks to our heros, we are the only place on Earth where we enjoy the freedoms we have.  Thank you Chris Kyle and God Bless America.

    I am with GB 90% of the time but I think an MD knows more about mental illness in this one case…
    assuming a gun range would put him at ease/help him is like bringing a dog to a bone factory to calm him…very very bad but well-intentioned decision…
    just like the Mother who bought 6 guns into her house shared by a child all knew was an unstable mental case. 
    Will anyone learn from this and the recent mental cases?  Will the system?

    It appears Chris Kyle made this decision with his heart, not with his brain.

    Knowing the background of the P.S.T.D. shooter, the hospital doctor was led by compassion and should have never released him to carry a firearm at a firing range. Unfortunately, someone needed to say it. Ron Paul did just that!Maybe Ron Paul’s comments will save lives because of this.

    There is no Biblical admonishment to take heed how or when to speak. only to ‘Take heed how you hear”!

    Ron Paul needs to understand the influence he carries. When he says things like this it is as impactful as the things Pat Robertson or Jerry Falwell have said following 9/11. Mr. Kyle was a warrior and Ron Paul should recognize that God’s favorite person was the greatest warrior Israel had ever seen. Live by the sword/die by the sword doesn’t speak of military or even governemental use. It is speaking of the bloodthirsty leader or killer and the violence that usually engulfs them. It applies more appropriately to our urban youth and the drug/death culture than the most decorated sniper in US Marine history. May Mr. Kyle find permanent rest and peace at the right hand of God.

    So if someone broke into your home you wouldn’t try to protect your family? If the intruder was shooting at you would you not kill him? Would that make you a murderer.That is exactly what these brave soldiers do, they are protecting their families and our families. The terrorist broke into our home(US soil) and our soldiers are over there trying to make sure it never happens again.

    I find nothing more despicable than Glenn’s use of Jesus to vindicate Chris. It is a direct hypocrisy, because what Doctor Paul said, came directly from Jesus himself. (Matthew 26:52)

    Wow!  I just read thru a lot of these posts and it’s really telling. First off, I’m not going to comment on the death of Mr. Kyle.  Regardless of his service (in which I personally respect his choice to serve), my prayers go out to his family.  

    With that being said, I noticed a lot of posts talking about “patriotism”.  So what is patriotism? The dictionary says it’s the love of one’s country.  So what is a country?  Is it a government…a flag…the culture…what? And since the world and societies are not static, what is the time frame that reflects your “patriotism”?  As a Libertarian (there seems to be a lot of misunderstandings in this nation today what that means, so I must explain that I’m not a fair weather Libertarian such as GB, but one who holds strictly to the belief that everyone has a right to their Life, Liberty, and Property and any force against that is immoral), my “patriotism” is not to a flag or body of men we call “government”, but to the ideas that this nation was based on (Life, Liberty, and property).  So now that I’ve clarified, I am interested in what others believe “patriotism” is.

    Next, I’ve noticed and commented before on how GB has done a great job waking up a lot of people since he hit Fox news.  He definitely has brought interest to many regarding economics, history, etc. and got many people involved.  My hat goes off to him and all of his hard work.  But I’ve also commented that it appears he hit a wall during his own awakening process and in the comments section on this site, it’s very apparent many of his active listeners have too.  It’s not everything, but certain things I’ve noticed his ego and natural indoctrination (we all suffer from this, it’s a human thing) simply can’t let go.  I believe a great example was him calling a service member an idiot for saying he wasn’t going to vote in the last election, while GB was pushing hard for a different form of tyranny by the name of Mitt.  This isn’t a simple topic.  It’s very philosophical and a tough moral one.  But the point is that he refused to think outside his box of indoctrination as many did.  The same thing is going on in these posts.  You have very few who understand that America has become an empire…that has already collapsed but nobody really knows it yet…, they run guns, drugs, fight wars over natural resources and to keep the US petrodollar in demand so THEY can continue to run the empire, etc.  and you have others who either can’t figure that out or simply don’t want to see it and they act (in this case type) out emotional responses because what they are hearing is conflicting with their ego/indoctrination.  It’s tough to hear things that invalidate what you’ve always believed.  So if you don’t want to see it and just strike out emotionally, then you might be stuck in the box of indoctrination.  

    Those who enjoy or try to see things in a more philosophical light might appreciate the next post…

    “If you
    look back at the history of anyone who has chosen to challenge the
    establishment, it’s a very dark history.  There are a great number of
    people out there that realize something is wrong, but they do not understand
    the source of that wrongness because they are in the box of
    indoctrination.  Socrates never speculated on the slavery that was
    existing during his time.  That was normality to him.  This goes with
    every type of political philosopher that ever existed, whether it’s Karl Marx
    or Plato.  They’re all locked into an established paradigm and their
    thought processes can only go so far.  They see the box around them. 
    They see the leaks and the holes and the cracks and they go up to the cracks
    and they try to fix them, they try to patch the holes.  But they don’t stop to think
    that maybe there’s something wrong with the box itself.  Maybe the
    integrity of the box that they exist in is inherently invalid.  The
    economic system that we live in is a parasitic paradigm that is only going to
    lead to self destruction, but people don’t see that.  So if you attack the
    economic system for what it actually is (debt based fiat), everyone’s feathers
    go up and say, ‘this is the world that we all live.  We live in a profit
    based labor for income world of cyclical consumption.  This is what we’re
    use to.  We understand we have division of classes’.  They throw in
    human nature…they throw in everything  that will try and make it seem like
    it’s a part of the natural order of reality, when in fact it is not.”

     

      

    “It’s a
    double edged sword when you get a bachelors, masters, PH. D, in a particular
    medium.  Think about what you’re actually doing.  You’re going thru a
    curriculum that has been established for you by the institutions that have
    existed prior.  When it comes to social things, that have a great deal of
    subjective variance, you lose objectivity in that sense.  Because you’re
    literally indoctrinated into the beliefs that are presented.  To get a
    degree in economics, which is probably the most wasteful thing you can possibly
    do, is to be completely indoctrinated into the idea that what your are studying
    is actually a science and actually has some type of relevance to
    anything.  So when I get emails from PH. D’s in economics that try to
    debunk the aspects that we talk about, it becomes quite clear to me that the reason they have such an
    objection is really an emotional one.  It isn’t an objective
    aspect.  They have culminated an identity
    to themselves because of their belief system and for me to take that away from
    them…to debunk their ideas about economics…is to take away their identity. 
    Another form of attack simply comes from the cultural nuance.  It comes from the social
    programming.  What we call the self appointed guardians of the status quo. 
    People that are suffering
    in the system like everyone else but their social identification is so
    powerful…they are so locked into the box…that they find it infuriating that
    what they are living is actually wrong paradoxically.  I get
    this all the time from people.  The self appointed guardians of the status
    quo are birthed in religion, economics, the illusion of democracy that we see
    across the world, etc.  So the biggest
    crutch to the evolution of human thought is breaking your own
    indoctrination.  It’s very difficult to overcome emotional elements that
    have become so ingrained in you that you have an immediate reaction…immediate
    suffering and pain…when anything interferes with that and it’s a very complex
    problem.”

    When someone has a Phobia, sometimes facing it reduces and sometimes clears it.  Beyond that, I can understand what Kyle was doing at the firing range.  That was his choice, and his life to choose to do this as part of his outreach to veterans.  The Ron Paul statement, ‘dies by the sword’ is like shooting off a pistol in the middle of a crowd.  It was unwise and irresponsible to use a biblical phrase by Jesus out of context about a patriot to elevate his own view on wars.  Dr. Paul  doesn’t seem to get that he is free to say all these types of wild statements because people like Chris Kyle fought against an enemy who wants to shut him up.  But gads, it’s appalling to have anyone fire off a twisted bible quote against a downed man, Chris Kyle, who I saw as a true patriot and a defender of my own freedom.

    Chris Kyle was and is a true hero. He saved many U.S. lives where we sent him. He saw a wrong and tried to help correct it with his friends.

  • Anonymous

    Yes his timing and the fact that he politicized is terrible and Dr. Paul should know better, but is he wrong in his comment of living and diying by the sword?  My problem with the whole thing is the fact that we turned Chris Kyle in to a celebrity and his 160 confirmed killed record is spoken about like a football score on number of touch downs in a season.

    Chris Kyle actions did save a lot of lives, and he is a hero.  The the things that happen in a war, make no sense outside of that world, and went talked about back in the civilian world 160 kills shouldn’t be talked about so flippantly by the media.  Enemy or not, thats is someone husband, father and child that is in a war killing someone else child, father, mother, husband, wife, son or daughter.

    PTSD is a serious condition and its tragic that we quickly forget about the health of our soldiers when they return home or leave Military service.   It’s something that only someone who has been and lived through the same experience can understand, I have friends that have served, and they have seen and had to do things that no one could comprehend, they don’t/won’t talk about it.  If we are going to send people out to fight we must take care of them when they return, whatever the cost.  Lets bring the troops home NOW.

    Whether Paul meant what he said or not, I’m sure there are MANY people of the same opinion. Does Beck have some exclusive right to lash out at others who don’t agree with him? It is a sign of typical progressives, if you don’t agree with my point, YOU are condemned, because I say so. Kyle was one of thousands of volunteers to go in the face of war, whether legitimate or not, whether for the purpose to maintain freedom for America or not. If Beck was a war veteran, then I would understand his outburst. But to distinguish one soldier above others does not make sense. Kyle was killed by one of his own, so that statement “living by the sword and dying by it” makes some sense. I do like Beck and respect him for his efforts to tell the truth, but I laugh when he goes off the top and condemns others, ones who may not agree with him all the time.

     Your post is one of the scariest and most ignorant I have ever read.  As long as there are humans, there has been and will be war. Why? There is always a group of people who want power and control over others. Either you submit to those who want power or you fight against it. It sounds as though you would prefer submission. In that case, and since you seem to hate America so much, there are plenty of other country’s in the world that would welcome another slave. Why not check them out?

    It seems to me that Mr Beck is attempting to demonize Dr Paul Who has defined pure libertarianism for the past 30+ years, “as if” Dick Armey’s Freedomworks is somehow the new libertarian standard now that Dr Paul is retiring.

    The genius of Mr Beck is that he is a master disinformation artist. The thing that makes good disinformation “great” is that it’s that it’s 90% true. What Mr Beck does is say things like: Van Jones is bad ( true ), George Soros is bad ( true ), Prez O’Blah Blah follows the principals of Saul Alinsky ( true )….But then he slips in things like “The Bilderberg group is a silly conspiracy ( false ), that Truther’s are bad ( false ). The new one I’m watching closely is Glenn’s flirting with Ray Kurzweil’s Transhumanism ideas. ***beware of what kind of spin Glenn puts on this*** Did you know there is a Mormon organization which promotes Transhumanism? Transhumanism is life extention tech to enable man become God, and to live forever, thus avoiding judgement by the REAL God.

    Chris Kyle was a true hero, what happened was despicable, and what Ron Paul tweeted was completely inappropriate

  • M.J. Marsalek

    Well Mr. Beck, I listened to your unimpressive tirade on Ron Paul.  I should tell ytou that I thought, said and wrote the exact statement tweeted by Dr Paul. I further wrote that Chris Kyle and Chad Littlefield died of wounds Eddie Ray Routh sustained in battle. Speaking only for myself, I believe there is a huge difference between justified wars and unjustified wars. The invasion of Iraq was unnecessary, unjustified, illegal under international law and was conducted under completely false & misleading circumstances. Chris Kyle was credited with 160 confirmed kills during his tours of duty in Iraq.  Though I appreciate the sacrifice he willingly made for our country, I do not condone or celebrate the many murders he committed in so much as the U.S. invaded Iraq illegally and without justification or cause. I also do not approve of the war crimes of torture that were cunducted by U.S. military and intelligence officers in my name. So I ask you Mr. Beck – how do patriotic Americans honor and support our troops as they commit despicable acts of murder and torture.  Terrible things happen in wars and that is the most compelling reason to go to war only when we have to – not just because we want to. And finally Mr. Beck, Chris Kyle and Chad Littlefield were reportedly shot by Eddie Ray Routh at a firing range where Kyle took Routh who was suffering from PTSD.  The wisdom of that decision speaks for itself.  Please know that nothing written herein is intended to criticize or disrespect the service and memory of Chris Kyle & Chad Littlefield. It is my sincere hope that we learn from Iraq what we failed to learn from Vietnam.  Fool me once – shame on you.  Fool me twice – well you’re not going to fool me twice !!!!!

    “Also, can you enlighten me on one thing.  Doesn’t the Torah explicitly forbids the state currently known as Israel?  Lots of Jewish scholars and Rabbis point to this, but I’ve never heard an argument against it.  I just want to get the real facts from a genuine Jewish person, who obviously loves his country very much.  Don’t give me rhetoric, just facts that I can check out on my own for validity.   ”

    No, it doesn’t, thanks for asking. There are a very few fundamentalist rabbis who think that only God should have restored Israel, not Man, so they opposed the restoration of Israel by the UN. But they are an extremely minority opinion. It actually doesn’t say anything in the bible about the modern state of Israel because the ancient state still existed, so there was no need for a restoration. The tradition is that Israel was to be restored, and the only opposition was from the few fundamentalist rabbis I mentioned.

    btw, there is not one Jewish person or Israeli in Gaza, so anything about stealing land from Gaza or building settlements there is absurd. Settlements there were destroyed by Israel in the hope of peace. Of course it was met with nothing but more hatred and rocket fire.

    I heard Glenn on his soapbox again today, on the way to work. I live far away from most radio stations. Occasionally I tune in. While I’m not thrilled with the way Ron Paul delivered his message, he quickly clarified within a very short time. Yet Glenn went on and on and on about how Ron should clarify. Glenn, before you go on one of your long winded holier than thou rants, get your facts straight.  A little TINY research and you would have seen his clarification of his “tweet”…http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/02/05/ron-paul-tweet_n_2623194.html
     Of all the politicians every running for president, no one has been loved by the military or respected more than  Ron Paul. And he served in the military too.
    Glenn, you accused Ron of dancing on a grave. When in reality, he wasn’t saying that Chris Kyle deserved to die, he was saying that the current military path we are headed on brings about this kind of tragedy.
    My mother is a psychologist, in her own practice now. She just ended a job working for the air force, trying to help veterans with PTSD. There is no way she would ever have let them around a gun, let alone take them to a firing range. Glenn, that was what Paul was decrying. We have a nation falling apart, and one lone voice telling the truth, and you’re worried about political correctness? Even if yours and others’ assessment was correct, you should at least do your homework because when Ron Paul clarifies a statement, you KNOW it’s sincere and not just political. And how many politicians can you say that about?

    How encredibly naive. War is absolutely necessary for the soveirnty of any nation which is threatened by external forces. There is no reasoning with people such as yourself because you do not posess the means to engague in rational thought. In order to knock some sense into you first we would need to instill the fear of God in you! Then we would need to educate you from PreK on up all over again. You open your mouth and pour out despicabled things using the freedoms that were afforded you by God and defended with the blood of our brave men and women. Get lost!

    Undoubtedly some of the commenters on ths blog have uncles, grandfathers or fathers that fought in WWII and Korea.   They should realize that war involves killing the enemy, whoever that is.  Killing the enemy in the line of duty is morally righteous. The Military swear allegience to the Constitution and the Country and will defend it with their lives, even defend the morons that are commenting on this blog against the military.  These men are the best of best men and are a National treasure.  Those that talk against these heroes, need to stop listening to the Socialist gangsters that are attempting to destroy our great Nation.

    Glenn, please don’t lie and feed the rest of the Faux News’ bots by twisting the story. “He who lives by the sword dies by the sword” actually came from Jesus’ own mouth. Because so many people took it out of context, this is what Ron Paul posted on his facebook page:

    “As a veteran, I certainly recognize that this weekend’s violence and killing of Chris Kyle were a tragic and sad event. My condolences and prayers go out to Mr. Kyle’s family. Unconstitutional and unnecessary wars have endless unintended consequences. A policy of non-violence, as Christ preached, would have prevented this and similar tragedies. -REP”
    Neocons claim they support the troops and love the military, but they are always so eager to shed their blood by carelessly throwing them into conflicts. On the other hand, Ron Paul supports the troops by trying to keep them out of conflict and by wanting to bring them home, and he gets called “unpatriotic.”

    Who are the true patriots? Not neoconservatives…

    This exchange between them really shows that in foreign affairs,  Beck is a neo-con, not a libertarian.

    Because I heard Beck say things that were false, when he was on Fox, I realized that this person claiming to tell the truth (over and over and now as part of two slogans) was someone to keep an eye and an ear on. Then he became a project.

    He’ll say whatever he needs to in order to get attention. Some accuse him of being a “troll” with his knack for getting mentioned in the media. I think it’s his true and tried method of increasing his audience. Controversy gets attention, and it’s making him a fortune in the media business.

    Dr. Paul has integrity and honesty.  Mr. Beck has a scheme, lots of them actually.

    Read one post saying, the shooter was taking auditing from the cult Scientology..They told him he could not go to any kind of psychiatrist or psychologist ~ They told him not to take any meds.All the families involved should sue the stinking cult. These creeps that give that auditing are not licensed or educated.To damn bad the shooter didn’t shoot up the cult instead of a great American hero.

    You argument is contrived . Warfare is not a murder. Both sides engaged in combat acknowledge the possibility of getting killed, they go for it voluntarily. Now you can argue about legitimacy of the reason why the war is waged, but that’s irrelevant. War is ugly regardless of why it’s being fought, but this is not the reason to disrespect the institution itself (the military), since it’s just a tool for achieving certain goals.

    As for people like Chris Kyle (R.I.P), they put their life on the line for this country and each one of us, you might say they are doing the ‘dirty job’, well someone has to. That tweet was a new level of stupid for Ron Paul…

     David, you may have had a reason to say some of what you said, but, when you adopt such a one-sided, venomous attitude, you lose that reason and become just another radical unable to give to others what you demand others give you.  What you apparently do not see is that it is just as bad to be an extremist on one side of the fence as it is to be an extremist on the opposite side of the fence.  It is the extremism which is the problem, not which side of the fence you’re on.  The U.S. has certainly made mistakes, and has sometimes gone to war wrongly.  But that does not mean it is always wrong, or that all wars are wrong.  It means simply that the wrong ones are wrong.  The only way to determine what is right and what is wrong is to have the ability to look at everything with a degree of moderation.  Once you adopt the attitude of “always” and “never” such as you demonstrate here, you become no less than the thing you are condemning.

     Ron Paul, and many military experts have talked about blowback. Again, Ron Paul is not always “careful” in how he words things, but if you look at what he’s actually trying to point out, he’s not so crazy. And he has expressed sincere sadness for what has happened during 9/11, and he doesn’t climb on board with the “truthers”….but Ron issued warnings to us all, that if we don’t change our course, we are in for more terrorism. Agree or disagree, this is his message. I read his book, and I finally got beyond the sound “crazy uncle” accusation soundbites, then I really started researching. I was a poly/sci major in college, and  It took me a long time to agree with him, but I can’t deny the concept of “blowback”.

I would bet he would do it all the same regardless of outcome. I know it may not have been the best choice but, he made that choice on faith. I am glad to call Chris my brother. I will be ever watchful. God bless you, David. I hope He reaches you before you condemn yourself.

Well, I hope all of you who feel this way feel the same way about our Founding Fathers AND all the “evil soldiers” who fought against and defeated the British so we could gain our independence from Britain. Or could it possibly be that you idiots think that we should have stayed under British rule? I know you people are just too inadequate to understand the bond that is formed between our brothers and sisters in arms, since none of you have the intestinal fortitude to make that kind of decision and sacrifice for anybody other than yourselves. None of you can ever understand what it means to be part of something that is much bigger than any of you, something that requires true self-sacrifice. Something that requires you to possibly lay down your life so that others may continue to live.  And for those of you who want to drag God and Jesus into this to bolster your argument against war, just what do you dimwits think the purpose and result of Armageddon is?  Doesn’t it say something in the Bible about the “WAR between God and Satan”?  Do any of you actually understand the Bible? Are any of you capable of reading it? There are many instances in which God sent Israel to war.  Israel meaning the people, the tribe, not just the “state”.  The final WAR will end all wars.

    Glenn you are way off base.

    You buy this BS about these wars.All these wars are against a boogey man(alqueda) which was formed by the US Government.
    When we accept bragging about killing people regardless if it’s the enemy we are drifting further and further away from the Lord.
    If we truly want to walk with the Lord we would stop trying to create “Little Americas” around the world and bring our troops from all the bases home.If we are attacked then fight the war,win it, and get the hell home.

    This never ending battle against  the boogey man will NEVER end unless America ends it.Are we destined to defend 911 forever?It’s time America lives in Peace for once.Defend our Country at home no in some far away land where we are the agressor.

    Our Country has now been in perpetual wars since Vietnam,and but for a few years off since WW2.Our children need to grow up in a Country where WAR is not the norm.Our Nations health depends on it.
    The only way to do it is to turn  towards God not away from Him.

    This is not the Military of our fathers and Grandfathers.This is the “Military Industrial Complex” President Eisenhower warned us of in his farewell speech.Google it and you will be enlightened by a brilliant man.
    The fake war on terror can’t be won.There is no way we can eradicate every single terror cell in the world.Our Communist Government uses the excuse of the security of America and it’s citizens to fight these never ending wars.
    It’s not because our security is so goodthat we haven’t had a terror attack in America since 911.
    It’s because there is no threat fron terrorist.Only the threat put into our minds by our government.
    It all started with the Patriot Act which how convenient was all ready drawn up and ready to sign before 911.

     Thanks for seeing me as not “rude” or “nuts”. As a Ron Paul campaigner and wife of a delegate last year, I was lumped into that category along with many that didn’t deserve it. What we went through at GOP conventions was unAmerican, but that’s a story for another time. Even though we personally witnessed cheating during  the primaries, we saw every single Ron Paul delegate keep their cool, take the high road, and continued to patiently attend GOP meetings, listening and trying to work with those in the party. That’s what I saw. Are we passionate about trying to help others see what we have learned? Yep.
    Oh, btw, yes, my mom is a psychologist, and I have now returned to college to become a nurse. I truly care about others, and I support those who truly care too, which is why I support Ron Paul. He may not be the most careful with his words, but that’s because he’s not a typical politician. He says things that he hopes will get people thinking, rather than saying things to be popular.
    One more thing: I will not judge Chris Kyle. I don’t know him, and I certainly won’t spit on his grave, but a personal note: My ex brother in law was a pilot in Desert Storm. He bragged with glee about the 100′s of people he personally killed over there. He started beating my sister. We tried to get her to leave, but she wanted to be there for him. It wasn’t until he beat her unconscious in a parking lot, and someone called for help, that she finally left him. So he has medals. He “served”. He’s a veteran, and he’s no hero of mine. Yet, I feel sorry for him because I can’t help but think the war affected his behavior. And after the stories my mother has told me, it’s very, very sad.
    So Glen can wave his American flag, but he even admits that there are mental issues and serious ramifications for what is happening to our soldiers and military families. And THAT is what Ron Paul is saying. Enough, already, enough.

  • jdgalt

    You’re certainly right that not all wars help keep America free.  Unfortunately, if you become a soldier you don’t get to choose what wars you fight in.  For some of us that makes it morally mandatory to stay out of the service, at least until and unless our country gets involved in another war as clearly rightful as WW2.

    But I can’t hold it against Kyle that he felt he was protecting the country by making the opposite choice, and I don’t think Dr. Paul did either, even if the timing of his observation was in bad taste.

    to protect the innocent and uphold the freedoms that we enjoy as Americans.

    Nation Guard in 1997 and resigned in 2011. The reason I joined was to serve or
    country and support my state if needed. I also had a desire to serve because my
    father and grandfather also served. I did not join looking to kill people but
    to protect the innocent and uphold the freedoms that we enjoy as Americans.
    During my two deployments I did realize that there is true evil in the world.
    From my perspective our armed forces try to do the right thing every day in the
    face of extraordinary obstacles. It really upsets me when I hear people make
    comments like above. This is an assumption but from your comments I would
    suggest you thank the men and women who have enabled you to remain so ignorant
    to the realities of the world.

    The so-called “Palestinians” have killed far too many innocent people to have any further right to exist.  The Jews have not.  If you can’t see the difference you are part of the problem.

     Yes, I had military in my family, and my mother was a psychologist to many soldiers with PTSD. Please go down and read my posts, and our family experience. I used to trust that soldiers were always fighting for our freedom. They may join the military for that purpose. For that I applaud them. Unfortunately, that is not what is happening. But it sure is taking its toll on our soldiers and military families. Please go down and read what I have to say, and also my responses to others who commented on my post.

    Glen,In a way Ron Paul is right.A man with p.t.s.t.has a lot of problems.Gun fire can set a person off that suffers from it.It brings him back into the battle field in his mind and he reacts like he is on the battle field.Chris Kyle was trying to help him with that but in the wrong way.He used a “sword”to fix the problem.Now Chris was a very good man that did his duty for our country and for that I do admire what he has done.It was bad judgment for Chris to try to help his friend the way he was trying to do and that is what Ron Paul was trying to say when he tweeted that.

We always said that everyone should spend one night on patrol or ambush with us before they even open their mouths. Sadly this is the sick world we all live in right now. I don’t even recognize this country anymore. We are in a full scale war from the inside out for our Country and our Souls. There is good and evil and somehow evil has been able to twist the minds of much of our population, to the point evil seems to be winning and sadly many people have been blinded by it. It’s a spiritual war that we are fighting each and everyone of us. People have not or will not come to terms with that yet.

    If you refused to go when ordered, then YOU are the coward.  You keep citing Hitler and the Nazis.  Who do you think stopped them, people who refused to go?  NO, people like Chris Kyle!  It has always been the few who have died for the many.  Without people like Chris Kyle we would all be speaking German.  You obviously have no idea how close Hitler came to winning.  No one is asking you to actually do anything, just be grateful for those who go so you can sit safely behind your keyboard and spout off.

    Glenn. That is why I am not nor will ever be  part of the Libertarian Party. The more I research the history of and dig into what the Libertarian Party wants for my country the less I can agree with them. Ron Paul has been beamed up too any times. If he is the banner carrier for his party and representative of what they represent—I’m scared to death of what will happen if more people like him get into office. Sorry Glenn,but I can’t agree with you on this one about the LIberterians. Liberty Yes,but at what price. I don’t see anything wrong with just being an independent.

    Everything Ron paul said was right on the money. conservatives keep talking about mental health as a deflection but see taking someone with ptsd to a shooting range. If you have any mental issues, they do not let you have a weapon in the army. Ironically video games would have been a better therapeutic tool.

    Thank You Glenn for speaking outfor Chris Kyle. He was a true hero and Ron Paul has always been a LOON! He worked to disarm our military in July of 2010 with Barney Frank and one of Soro’s Progressive groups. Does that sound like Ron Paul is a true American that loves freedom? He did nothing but work with the Communist n Washington under the table but told the people what we wanted to hear. I have watched him for many years and he is a crazy ass. His son is a true Conservative with more commo sense than his father.

    “It is not the critic that counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat”…..Theodore Roosevelt 26th President of The United States, Medal of Honor soldier.

    Funny how many vitriolic people HATE Beck yet here you are writing on his page….if that’s not immature I just don’t know what is! Frankly Ron Paul is NOT a libertarian. In fact, he’s a neoliberal hack who invented a make believe version (er preversion) of libertarianism that is called paleolibertarianism and it is nothing what Jefferson wrote about that was based on the Lockean natural law. Hardly anyone knows the difference nowadays because of sheer ignorance but I do. I am also a disabled veteran and respect ALL life, even those who deserve no respect from me. They have families and should be treated with kindness after they DIE! Chris Kyle defended freedom by FOLLOWING LAWFUL ORDERS! He was DAMN good at it too and most of you girly men don’t have the nads to be a seal let alone Spec Ops troop. That being said, the way I see it is our nation has no respect for human life anymore. What does our gov’t do for WE the people? Nada. They’re all self-serving and that goes for Ron Paul who touts he is the ONLY Constitutionalist in Congress yet WTH has he passed besides earmarks and pork barrel measures? Yeah, he’s the biggest loser in Congress because of his hypocrisy!

    I have never wondered why you do not support Ron Paul, nor do I care.  That’s your business, but I don’t think you are being honest when you say that for those who wonder why you could never support Ron Paul you hope this comment of yours answers the question.  What he wrote in that Tweet had nothing to do with your reasons for not supporting him.  I think the more likely reason is your differences on Israel.
     
    People misunderstand Paul’s stand on Israel.  They think he is anti Israel.  In reality he is anti the US meddling in affairs of other countries.  Yes, we give military aid to Israel, but we also tie Israel’s hands when it comes to Israel defending itself.  Ron Paul is against both giving aid to any country and against tying any country’s hands when they have to defend themselves.  It’s pretty much what George Washington said.  Check it out.

    His comment on Tweeter may be offensive, and repulsive, and you have every reason to respond as you did, but I don’t buy that his Tweeter comment is why you could never support him.  Be honest!

    I remember Glenn saying that Ron Paul was not interventionist enough, I think to Judge Napolitano before Fox ‘News’ got rid of Da Judge. Now that interventionism as US foreign policy has once more blown back in the US, this time to bite a Navy Seal, whatcha have to say Glenn? Sowing & reaping? Another victem of another useless  wasteful war…but hey, let’s go after Ron Paul!

    Would this have taken place if we were NOT meddling in the Middle East? Bombing them since the 50′s has not worked out well for our military & international relationships, but has given the military industrial complex billions in profits. What about that Glenn?

    What Ron Paul said about dying by the sword is correct. Mr. Kyle was slain with the same kind of weapon he once used. Another tragic outcome of US foreign war policy that our Founders did NOT espouse.

    Sometimes I wonder about ya Mr. Beck. Did you contact Dr. Paul to find out what he meant? What was in his head? Didn’t think so. What are your thoughts about what Ron said in his clarification?

    I think you think you have found your final excuse for not standing with the only true fiscal conservative Constitutionalist we have had as a POTUS candidate in many a long decade. I think your venom against Dr. Paul is a huge tell…I seldom missed your show on Fox, but since ya left you often make me wonder where YOUR head is.

    I would like to know what was in Mr. Kyle’s head when he took this guy to a gun range. This is a difficult post as I am not trying to denigrate Mr. Kyle, but he should have known better than to take the man to a shooting range knowing he had a mental condition.

    Did Chris know how serious the shooter’s condition was? Did he check with military doctors? Chris may have been acting out of a desire to help his fellow soldier, but he seems to have presumed without confirmation.

    Though Mr.Kyle was IMO somewhat reckless, he did not deserve to die this way. Prayers for his family.

    We are in the NEW Covenant dispensation in case you missed the bulletin. :-)

    Would Messiah tell us to go to war under false pretenses? That it’s OK to kill every thing in sight, even US citizens who are only accused of terrorism? Did Yeshua not say he who lives by the sword dies by the same?

    What transpired in the OLD Covenant is a whole different context & for very different reasons. Father told Israel to do what they did to protect the line of people that Messiah would come from, not to grab their oil.

    The Glenn Beck’s recent rant about Ron Paul isn’t a surprise.
    The mechanism of his behavior has been known for a long time: in any religion
    or political party the fiercest war is waged not against real enemies but against
    like-minded people that happen to have different opinions. Look like, for instance
    Catholic Church vehemently opposes any schism, any diversion from the only
    right direction.

    Ron Paul merely stated that treating PTSD at a firing range didn’t make sense. GB can agree or not, maybe give it some thought, but he
    should reserve his rant for somebody/something more important. Unfortunately, whenever
    GB has to choose between emotions and logical thinking he usually, if not
    always, picks up the former. He has enough common sense to acknowledge that his
    political choices never work, but not enough to clear his view on the history.
    The holes in his knowledge of basic history of the USA or the world are
    enormous. His love of the constitution and the George Washington magically agrees
    with his love of Abraham Lincoln; his disgust for too powerful federal government
    goes nicely with his admiration of the early Republican Party. Those are just
    examples.

    It’s harder and harder for me to find a cohesive message in
    the GB show. There is an alternative, though, and not far away — it is coming
    from Wilkow and Real News. I watch the show and listen to the GB radio less and
    less.

    Record debt, over regulation, nationalization of industries, undeclared wars, total abandoning of our founding documents…those are NOT the water marks of freedom. They are the beginning of tyranny. Do some research on executive orders. Find out how this tool is being abused then tell us how our peeps are dying for our freedom.

    THAT’S WHAT OUR TROOPS ARE NOW DYING FOR!
    .

    For heaven’s sake!! WAKE UP!!!! Good grief!! TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT IS GOING DOWN IN THE USA! 

    Niki K told us in the 50′s we would be taken down FROM WITHIN! If that’s not something you can seetaking place NOW, well, God help your blindness.

    Patriotism is great. No prob. But you need to quit the self deceiving smoke screen homilies, chest thumping, stop repeating big bro propaganda & get some facts.

    Nice GB, thank you for showing your ignorance on this thread.  Firstly, defending and securing freedom for us and others by force is not a sin akin to murder.  If it was, then God would have been guilty of the same thing by destroying those in the great flood and destroying Sodom and Gamorrah by showering those cities of sin with fire and stones from the sky.  Also, God, through the prophets had the Israelites go into the land of Canaan and destroy all of the people inhabiting the area.  Another thing, Chris volunteered knowing that his life could be taken in Afghanistan and Iraq.  He is a true hero.  Remember, we were attacked by terrorist and Congress approved that we needed to do what was needed.  Your definition of murder is way too broad.  Do you also believe that people that defend themselves of others by the act of deadly force is also guilty of murder?  If so, then the mother that shot the intruder protecting her children guilty of attempted murder.  How does this make any sense.

    Okay, so you would be a conscientious objector?  Good for you.  You can serve your country in the mess tent, feeding the other heroes who risk their lives daily by following the orders of the National Command Authority, which is headed by the Commander in Chief.  Failure to carry out your duties as a sniper gets your team killed.  For every insurgent he took down, at LEAST one other American or ally life was saved … probably more than we can imagine.

    Not everyone puts their personal beliefs above our national interests.  He did what WE THE PEOPLE ordered him to do, because WE THE PEOPLE elected the politicians (and by extension the people they appoint) who give the orders to go to war and kill.  It’s no different than the man or woman pushing the button that starts the plungers in a lethal injection chamber.  If this is murder, then it is on the government’s head.  If the order is lawful, then the individual is required to obey it. 

    The world is a dangerous place, and I for one am thankful for skilled and selfless heroes like Chris Kyle.  He stands in the desert, and he says, ‘Nothing is going to hurt you tonight…not on my watch.’

    Now we are all God’s children.  Now I don’t know why Dr. Paul even thought that he would have to tweet on the subject but with all of the people who are either mentally ill I kind of agree with him.  The men and women who come back from these foreign wars are really coming back to NOTHING!  The nothingness of UNEMPLOYMENT, the Nothingness of Food going up, Gas Going UP, the Nothiness of their wives husbands or children not being there for them.  The president should end all of the wars, call all of the people home, and what are they coming home to???? No work!  The most important thing is to get our people to work on the roads and bridges, in the companies helping the people who come in to their companies, and to stop putting OUR tax money into building all of those companies who are going broke.  Put the people back to work.  Allow the doctors and nurses to do their jobs.  The reason why I have been hearing complaints recently about the care that they are given in the hospitals is because there are not enough nurses (or they are working too many shifts back to back.  Why then are there nurses out of work?  The problem is the fact that they are fighting among themselves.  And you Mr. Glenn Beck, I am rather surprised at you for the comments that you are making about Dr. Ron Pauls comment.  He wants to HELP people in the preservation of LIFE!  That is why they have confessionals.  For anyone who makes a mistake, thinks about it and makes up their mind never to sin again and to talk with the confessor, and find ways in which they can live their lives in a better way, it only takes a few minutes but it gives you peace of mind, and it also allows you to get on with your life!  I wouldn’t do anything to change my own father who was a fireman.  He was a fantastic father, great worker, and an all around perfect man.  I am sure that he did something or said something that he shouldn’t have but he was brought up by my grandmother and grandfather who were Mormon.  I cannot remember a foul thing said or done by my father during my life.  And I thank the Lord God for having given my father and my mother, who was born and baptized and raised a a good Catholic girl.  They fell in Love but when they started to get serious, my mother told my father that she wanted to marry a Catholic man.  My father took instructions and decided to leave the Mormon religion and joined our church which has been here since Jesus left the 12 apostles on the earth to instruct the people.  You know not everyone is called to be a priest, a mother or a father, or even a single man or woman.  But we are all called to be a thoughtful human being.  I can see why you spoke so harshly, to Dr. Paul, about the person who was a hero in our eyes, but both men are true heros.  There are fighters like St Joan of Arc, and there are Doctors who heal the wounded or even the mentally disturbed.  There are sinners like Mary Magdalene and there are some with pasts like St. Augustine that would make you wonder how did he get to be a saint?  They are all human beings that realized, at one point in their lives, that the God who created them was calling them to turn around and come to HIM.  That is why I am so glad to be a Catholic and to try to bring as many people back to the fold as I can.  Come back Glenn!

    Glenn Beck – -You
    have proven that you did not understand what Ron Paul was conveying.
    Ron Paul did not go too far in his statement. It was just as ludicrous
    taking someone who was known to be mentally unstable and suffering from
    PTSD to a gun range as
    it was for the Sandy Hook murderer Adam Lanza’s mother to take her
    known mentally unstable son to a gun range and teach him how to shoot.Ron
    Paul was not insulting Chris Kyle or denigrating him in any way, shape
    or form. We can only hope that people will learn a lesson from the sad
    and tragic loss of life of Chris Kyle and his friend and not repeat the
    same mistake.Our
    nation has gotten itself into far too many UNLAWFUL wars and
    interventions that run totally counter to the mandated requirements in
    the U.S. Constitution. Because of these UNLAWFUL actions we have had
    far too many damaged souls who have come home suffering and inflicted
    from the “sword” of PTSD.Well,
    here’s a bit of irony. Isn’t Ron Paul’s statement quite similar to what
    I have tried to explain.
    “Paul backtracked some and offered a clarification on his Facebook page.
    He wrote: “As a veteran,
    I certainly recognize that this weekend’s violence and killing of Chris
    Kyle were a tragic and sad event. My condolences and prayers go out to
    Mr. Kyle’s family. Unconstitutional and unnecessary wars have endless
    unintended consequences. A policy of non-violence, as Christ preached,
    would have prevented this and similar tragedies. -REP”http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/02/06/ron-paul-clarifies-comments-on-death-navy-seal-member/

    Laraine – Typical response from someone who lacks the ability to understand and absorb what Ron Paul was actually stating. He was talking about the government “Living by the sword and dying by the sword” – because of its violations and usurpation of the U.S. Constitution by sending our service people into UNLAWFUL wars and interventions and thus creating unnecessary damage with their deaths, physical and mental harm (PTSD).  Korea, Vietnam – that my husband served in – and the current and recent wars are all UNLAWFUL Wars because they violate Article 1, Section 8 that mandates the Congress to “Declare War.” The U.S. Constitution is not a list of suggestions – it is this nation’s ONLY Supreme Rule of Law that all of our elected representatives take a sacred oath and make a CONTRACT to uphold and adhere to.
    Ron Paul has since given an explanation and clarification for his statement for all those too dense to understand what his original statement meant:
    “Paul backtracked some and offered a clarification on his Facebook page.

    Latest news reports state the shooter has been in and out of mental hospitals.  At this point, I can’t see how exactly Paul was wrong in what he said. While Kyle’s murder is unfortunate, it was ill-advised and it put other people in danger to supply a mental patient with a firearm.

    Well said, David. Anyone who believes in the government and it’s war on the world is a lost cause. Period. Don’t try to reach them, they are comfortably plugged into the matrix. They will NEVER get it. It’s the same group of folks who think that 9/11 was perpetrated by a guy living in a cave. The same folks that get “the real news” from Fox, NBC, The New York Times, etc., etc. Talking to them is an act of mental masturbation. Move on and prepare yourselves for the coming collapse and WW3. It’s gonna get ugly and those who are not ready for it will perish. 
    Let’s face it, America is a spiritually sick nation. The herd needs to be thinned of these people. The culling will be heartbreaking, but necessary. Get right with The One, and prepare for the fall of the republic. These same folks who believe they are the ones who determine what being “American” means will be the ones who cease to exist in a very short while. Pray for their ignorant, arrogant souls.

    The S.S. and Germans were only doing as they were told to. I agree with Ron Paul. I respect the sacrifice our soldiers make but they’re committing a crime if they’re not fighting for what they believe is right. Regardless of the decisions Congress makes each soldier has a responsibility to do right. I love Glenn Beck but this speech makes my cheeks hot scalding Ron Paul and shaming all libertarians. Memo: Ron Paul served our country in the military treat him with the same respect you do Chris Kyle.

  • Anonymous

    This exchange between Beck and Paul really shows that in foreign affairs,  Beck is a neo-con, not a libertarian.

    Because I heard Beck say things that are patently false, all the while claiming to tell the truth (over and over and now as part of two slogans) he is someone to keep an eye and an ear on. Then he became a project.

    He’ll say whatever he needs to in order to get attention. Some accuse him of being a “troll” with his knack for getting mentioned in the media. I think it’s his true and tried method of increasing his audience. Controversy gets attention, and it’s making him a fortune in the media business.

    If you’re one of the informed people here, who notice when he plays loose and fast with facts, understand:  Anyone can kick the Beck addiction.

    Dr. Paul has integrity and honesty.  Mr. Beck has a scheme, lots of them actually.

    Mr Paul has absolutely NO integrity at all and I would suggest he keep away (or maybe his keepers should keep him away) from his Twitter machine. I wouldn’t listen to ANYTHING that might come out of his mouth ever again. He lost ANY respect I might have for him when he showed no respect for Chris Kyle or his family.

    I have a friend who is now close to 70 who makes CK’s number of kills look small. He was also a sniper. This is a great man, he is almost anti-gun now in that he owns none and sees no reason for it unless you intend to use it. Talking to him over many years about many experiences from Nam to Middle East he is literally a lone survivor. His experiences came with a price in heavy therapy and self-analysis including addictions. This was before the high tech world we are in now which eliminates the jungle interactions. It seems there is a price to learn anything imperfect such as the decision to go to war as someone is always at fault, but the military complex is a separate structure for which its best is preparation for the worst. The enforcement business is where the rubber meets the road. The learning, discipline, character building, and experiences in preparation are  necessary. 
     
    The experience of war adds a whole new dimension and government is the responsible party. Once the decision is made whether right or wrong the military will go into auto mode and the individual will experience things that will hopefully short term, if long term it seems he will become de-sensitized or anesticized. Surviving such experiences and coming out the other end  successfully takes work and courage beyond which most can imagine.

    Is part of it dysfunctional – yes, just like any organizaton, company, or even family. But was needed was support and the presence of God in the structure. To reconcile these experiences and find peace the individual must also inject God into the equation. The secular world is not enough. Therefore it all starts with our leadership – would God approve of the initiall decision for war? Will we dissappoint the ideal observer?  This is the support the nation needs and the individual who is fighting for a God like purpose.

    Its hard to beleive there are people like David Williams and Jerry Briggs amongst us.   They need to be interviewed on some major news networks to have more Americans who understand Freedon, Security and terrorizm watch these feeble people who are really ostriches.   When I was 15 (hmm 61 yrs ago) my history teacher in high school said ‘ wouldn’t you rather be Red than Dead’  to our class.  I stood up then and said  ‘no  and politely explanied why’  and then walked out of his class and on to the principal’s office.   The next day the teacher apologized and usually stuck to the lesson program…but harrased me for two years.   I may not have been exactly sure why I stood up then, but I did later on and sure do now.    The Davids and Jerrys of the world are very willing to give up and clearly do not comprehend  ‘freedom’ and what it takes to keep it.   Billy

    I am an aggressive Glenn supporter usually.  However, I heard on Fox last night that the shooter had been threatening to kill himself and his family and had been in and out of several hospitals.  I agree that someone that sick should not have guns available to them at this time.  Even if it was with Chris on a shooting range.  Maybe we thought Chris had it all under controll, but he did not have the professional ability to control a psychiatric patient with a gun.  It is sad for everyone involved.

  • Denis Mulligan

    Reading the comments, it is evident who is a libtard, who is a civilian (who should keep their unknowing, naive mouths shut regarding soldiering), and who is a libertarian. I’d probably join the party, if they weren’t so wrong on foreign policy. 9/11 happened in part BECAUSE we kept our heads in the sand and didn’t go over and chop off the snake’s head (bin Laden) before it had a chance to strike. ANY person savvy of military history knows that isolationism is perceived as a weakness and allows the enemy to plan, train for, and execute an attack.. The best place to strike your enemy is in “command and control”.
    Ron Paul is a kook. Those who slather all over him without acknowledging his faults (as his fervent supporters do) sound and act the same as the Obama sheeple.

    Mr. Beck,
    Your “response” to the deplorable tweet by Ron Paul exposes the opportunist twit in you. To use the insensitive and misdirected statement about a heroic service members domestic murder as a catalyst for your own attempt at vindication of your political position is a selfish and short sighted act. We have all had regretfull knee jerk reactions to events that required apologies or clarifications, which will hopefully be forthcoming. To pounce on it like a school yard bully and defacto declare it a culmination of an underlying political stance that renders the offender now and forever unfit for your support, further illustrates the lack of maturity and judgement displayed nightly on your radio show. Politically you and I have identical goals but, your one of the people that I am embarrassed to have fighting on my side.

    I listened to this on the radio while driving—We know who started and starts all wars—Ron Paul knows and that is what his comments were about and not military veterans. Dr. Paul’s pathos is against war and not war fighters/heros. 
    Like a lot of politicians, comments taken out of context are jumped upon by the left wing media and right wing media for the sake of news—unfortunate that Mr. Beck too, leaped before he looked, albeit he did mitigate to some extent. 
    Ron Paul lost his bid for election by his foreign policy but I believe had he mitigated on those policies a bit as well, he possibly would have won the candidacy (might have won the big one with ethnic or gender inclusion), I doubt he would be alive today—Like Lincoln and JFK, the banks would have taken him out.International Banking is from where Dr. Paul was coming.  If Glen Beck went after them he wouldn’t last long either.

    Your coverage of Chris Kyle this morning was good with one, perhaps picky, reservation which is that you seldom mentioned his name. Instead you used pronouns, he, him, his family for most of the ten or fifteen minutes. Listeners turning is after the first minute so, like me, would not know who you were talking about.

    David, you are a stupid embarrassment  Have you ever listen to Beck or tried to understand his message? Glenn has done more for this country than most. Far more than you, I am sure. He donates his time and money to to support charities, organized rallies to bring Americans together, written books to educate the uninformed. His statements are rarely opinion and he is meticulous about providing supporting facts and documents. Glenn simply wants people to stop and assess what is going on with our country. He is a staunch supporter of the Constitution. He preaches love and a commitment to God. He encourages people and communities to do more for themselves and rely less on the government. Glenn is a supporter of the military. He realizes that our troops aren’t policy makers. They volunteer, do what is asked of them, and strive to keep this country safe. Whats drives me nuts is that Glenn would probably be the first person to stand up and defend your right to say stupid things. Tonight, I will force myself to pray for you and people like you. That one day you wake up. You call Chris Kyle a murder? What would you have him do? Stand by and watch his friends get killed by terrorists. Chris is a patriot and a hero and a far better person than you. You know what, I am wasting my time. You do not have the intelligence or attention span to get to the end of this.

    Whether he was treating him or not… It still doesn’t make sense to take a mentally unstable person to a firing range… It is not something I would do, of course I am probably not as intelligent as most people. I am sure Mr. Kyle was fairly confident that he was safe and secure… I am sure he had a good idea what he was doing and did not feel the least bit threatened or in danger.

    A gun range is really not the ideal place for a person suffering from PTSD, depression, suicidal tendencies, etc… Dinner at Denny’s I think is a far better alternative. The worst that could happen is a food fight. I think it is a good message to send to people who use guns of sorts… Be cautious… Use good judgement and don’t take unnecessary risks.

    “live by the sword die by the sword” –only a mental midget
    like ron paul can take such a profound quote and turn the other cheek to
    context.

  • greywolfrs

    What a complete joke. What public office does Ron Paul hold? The answer: NONE. He is no longer in Congress, he isn’t running for any office and he NEVER intends to run for office again. So, why is this earth-shattering “news?” It isn’t. It seems that Dr. Paul simply vocalized his opinion, under the First Amendment, he has that right. He is a PFC voicing his opinion. One may agree with it or may not agree with it, but I doubt that it needs to be all this.

    David, you are a stupid embarrassment. Have you ever listen to Beck or tried to understand his message? Glenn has done more for this country than most. Far more than you, I am sure. He donates his time and money to support charities, organized rallies to bring Americans together, written books to educate the uninformed. His statements are rarely opinion and he is meticulous about providing supporting facts and documents. Glenn simply wants people to stop and assess what is going on with our country. He is a staunch supporter of the Constitution. He preaches love and a commitment to God. He encourages people and communities to do more for themselves and rely less on the government. Your are right, Glenn is a supporter of the military. He realizes that our troops aren’t policy makers. They volunteer, do what is asked of them, and strive to keep this country safe. Whats drives me nuts is that Glenn would probably be the first person to stand up and defend your right to say stupid things. Tonight, I will force myself to pray for you and people like you. That one day you wake up. You call Chris Kyle a murder? What would you have him do? Stand by and watch his friends get killed by terrorists. Chris is a patriot and a hero and a far better person than you. You know what, I am wasting my time. You do not have the intelligence or attention span to get to the end of this. Go back to watching MSNBC or Sesame Street. Wherever it is that you get your news from. This message is brought to you be the letters f and u.

    Glen is not correct  here.  Chris Kyle believed he was helping a fellow vet with PTSD.  Unfortunately he (Chris) took him back into a similar  situation that caused the original problem.  Most of us are born helpers.  We can’t stop it.  My prayer is that these intervention wars will cease.  Our country must stop being the world’s policeman.  Chris Kyle is not a murderer.  He hired on as a soldier and did his job with tenacity!  My wish is that Chris would have checked with experts prior to accepting the challenge to assist a PTSD victim.  Take the person for a walk, go bike riding, visit a museum, go skiing–do anything with the person except that which brought the trauma on in the first place.  Ron Paul deserves an apology from Glen Beck; oh, I forgot, Glen made continual disparaging remarks about Ron Paul while he was running for POTUS.

    Twitter was ablaze with ridicule as well. “Ron Paul might want to ask Jesse Ventura what happened last time he ridiculed a dead SEAL,” said an uninformed Lachlan Markay, apparently unaware or unwilling to accept the fact that Ventura had filed a defamation lawsuit after Chris Kyle falsely claimed he had punched out the veteran and former Minnesota governor after he supposedly made a derogatory comment about American foreign policy. Kyle allegedly engaged in the ruse to drum up promotion for his ghost written book, American Sniper.

    and I had an ex brother in law who killed more than that in Desert Storm, and gleefully bragged about it.Then he repeatedly beat my sister many times. She wanted to be there for him, but one day he knocked her unconscious in the parking lot outside their apartment. A neighbor called for help, and she left him. War has many more victims than the soldiers. Ron Paul acknowledged that and clarified he was not trying to spit on Chris Kyle’s grave, but trying to point out how tragic war and the aftermath is, and yes in many cases senseless.     Ron quickly clarified his statement (which Glenn completely neglected to tell his audience)
    Inject God into the equation? Good idea. And if you really follow Ron Paul, that’s what he says. It’s all about the Golden Rule with him. But you wouldn’t know that if you get all your info about Ron Paul from Glenn Beck.

    the point of being human. Recognizing your mistakes and then trying to
    be better the next day.”

So we’re waiting Glenn, when are you going to be “decent” and admit your mistake in your attacking Dr. Paul, and apologize for not getting the facts straight before you went on your character assault on him?

    Why am I on this page? I’ll tell you. I live in an area where we have very little radio reception. On my way to work yesterday I turned on the only talk show I can pick up at that time. It happened to be GB. Normally, I just turn the station to music, but I happened to turn it on right when he started to discuss this. I was so irritated I turned it off after a few minutes. I looked this website up to see if he had it posted. He did. I have been writing to hopefully convince even one of you that this man, Glenn Beck, did not give you all the facts of this story, nor did he tell you of Ron Paul’s very public, soon after clarification on how people like Beck mistook his words’ intent. Do I agree with how Ron Paul says everything? No, but he clarified his statement. So I have taken time from my busy schedule, as others have, to inform you of the whole story. Please go down and read my other posts. Read about my family’s involvement in the military and about my mom who has treated veterans with PTSD. Ron quickly made it very clear, his attack was not meant toward Chris Kyle but toward a serious problem in our country that is not made any better by people just doing their politically correct flag waving. We must question the insanity of these continued wars, and we MUST look at how it is affecting good people. I feel bad for Chris Kyle’s family, but I also feel bad for the man who is now dealing with killing his friend, if it was because of a mental illness. Ron Paul is the truly compassionate one. He is the one calling for an end to this madness or at least an HONEST look at it. So why am I writing? because my brief moment of tuning into GB’s program yesterday called for me to give you guys the honest side of this story, because GB did NOT. It’s not about hatred towards GB, it’s about giving you the truth.

    Mental illnesses should be dealt with on a case by case basis, not under one umbrella. I have a daughter with a mental illness, a son with a developmental disability, and a mother who is a psychologist who treats soldiers with PTSD. I’m glad that these mental issues are getting talked about, but talking about them should only make us learn more about them, not make laws or blanket statements against them. And while it’s tempting to blame the medications, we need to be careful with that too.

    I commend the service of Chris Kyle, and his efforts to work with veterans returning from the hell that our high and mighty govt send them to.  Chris will continue to be a legend and a reference of patriotism.As a non-active duty Marine, and constitutional libertarian, I don’t understand why there is so much disdain for Ron Paul’s comment.  Chris did ‘live by the sword’, and he died by it.  For a warrior, what better way to go than by doing what you feel is right, by going the way you lived?  Unfortunately, this wasn’t an effort by an enemy, but by someone Chris was trying to help… I believe that makes the loss of this man more emotionally charged and controversial.

    The issue should not be Chris Kyle’s record, nor the record of the man who shot him, nor Ron Paul’s tweet, but the strife that our military are put through and the lack of proper care for them once they return.  I’ve been there.  I was lucky, I didn’t have to witness as much death and hopelessness that many do.  Those that are put in that position should be given the time and effort to heal their physical as well as emotional scars, by ALL means necessary.The fact that more of our military die by suicide than by enemy attack should be a wake up call to the fact that there is not enough support by our govt to those that risk it all, under the namesake of our freedom.  How can we stand guard at borders around the world in the name of our safety, and leave our own back door wide open??  I’d rather our troops be standing guard in conus than suffering the effects of foreign war without purpose or end, at the expense of the selfless sacrifice of our military members.

    Your argument is juvenile!  Glenn didn’t “scald” Ron Paul for his military service but for his derision of Chris Kyle’s service.  You should be rebuking Ron Paul for rebuking Chris Kyle who was only doing his job protecting his fellow soldiers.  The politicians put our military there, they didn’t close their eyes, put a finger on a map and decide to go there to shoot people.

    You argue like a third grader.  Chris Kyle didn’t make that decision, he was called to protect his team and he did it with honor and distinction.  What a truly great patriot he was.  Not like you seem to imply that you are — every man for himself (cowardly).  When you grow up yourself a bit, maybe we can have a big-boy discussion.  Until then, drop the moniker “molon labe” since you couldn’t even stand shoulder-to-shoulder with men like Chris Kyle.

    Glenn is right on!  He said he thought we should be out of Iraq and Afghanistan many years ago.  Wars like these are the decision of the politicians, not the soldiers and Iraq was the decision of nearly every U.S. Senator and Congressman.  Even your beloved Colin Powell supported it at the time based on the CIA intelligence so don’t stand up on your soapbox and pretend you were the smartest guy in the room.  Chris Kyle didn’t murder anyone, you’re a moron.  He took out enemy combatants per his orders and protected his team from many, many casualties by doing so.  As far as being a liar, I’ll take Chris Kyle’s word over the pusillanimous Ventura every day of the week.  What a pathetic wuss Jesse is! And about the US fomenting hatred by our military actions, what do you think this current amateur playing Commander-in-Chief is doing killing multitudes right now by drone strike?  It’s no different except it looks to him like a video game.  Ron Paul has some good ideas but don’t put him up on that pedestal you’ve got him on. He’s a little loony and short-sighted and some of his ideas would end up getting many more Americans killed if he were in charge.

     I’ve not read any of the responses, but I do have this to say.  In times of war, the sins rest upon the leaders of the nations if the war is unjust.  I do not support the war at all, but I do support our troops.  I fear that this is the kind of reaction that caused so many problems in Vietnam.  Most soldiers don’t want to be in combat.  Nobody in their right mind does.  No one has the right to judge except for God.  Not you, not Glenn, not me, not Ron, and sure as hell not Obama.  I support Dr. Paul in most things, but I have often  found his supporters to be uncivil and sometimes downright nasty.  We can’t help each-other if we’re too busy pointing the finger at everyone’s flaws.  Don’t judge because I sin differently than you do.

     Please don’t buy in to that.  When we name-call, we’re no better.  This entirely belies the point of what Glenn was talking about.  Notice he didn’t call Dr. Paul any bad names.  We get emotionally charged into this.  The only thing that hotheaded people who get on forums to rile up those that they disagree with should be called is trolls.  And it’s awful lonely being a troll when you have no Billy Goats to butt heads with…

    Yes, Kyle was a volunteer, but who can say what his motives actually were? Bragging about shooting 255 people from afar doesn’t sound like Audie Murphy, Dan Dailey or Smedley Butler. This is a man who made a big deal of living by the sword and profited enormously from it. He also boasted of his intolrance of other people’s opinions on the subject. He claimed to have sucker punched Jesse Ventura for comments he did not approve of. This is one of the less egregious examples of how military adventurism impedes free speech. We often here that servicemen fighting in various and sundry places around the world are defending our rights. The inevitable result of this kind of military adventurism is hostility toward honest description of it. Vietnam, Serbia, Panama, Iraq etc. never posed the slightest peril to freedom here and saying so is an anti-American lie. Afghanistan, and perhaps the Mayaguez incident, are the only truly defensive things done since WWII. Pretending otherwise and making others pay socially for failing to harms freedom of speech and lets phonies prevail.

    Exactly shane! There are too many gung ho people who have all the answers and fail to see the big picture.

I think to many of them it’s just a job, and they delude themselves by the big lie that they are protecting America’s freedoms. That’s BS! 
    People should check out the video on Youtube….if it’s still there….where President Eisenhower gave his exit speech. He specifically talked about the “military industrial complex” and how we should be aware of it.

    Here is a quote from Belief Net’s article, “Ron Paul, Chris Kyle and Christ-At the Intersection of Faith & Culture”

    ” Ron Paul is under fire for a tweet sent from his twitter account
    regarding the untimely death of Navy SEAL sniper, Chris Kyle, who was
    allegedly murdered by another veteran who he was supposedly trying to
    help deal with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Paul’s tweet read:
    “Chris Kyle’s death seems to confirm that ‘he who lives by the sword
    dies by the sword.’ Treating PTSD at a firing range doesn’t make sense.”

    Paul is a veteran himself.  After he became the subject of criticism,
    he extended his condolences to Kyle’s family and assured his critics
    that it is not Kyle himself to whom he referred, but “the
    unconstitutional and unnecessary wars” in which the late SEAL
    participated. 

    “Unconstitutional and unnecessary wars have endless unintended
    consequences,” Paul said.  “A policy of non-violence, as Christ
    preached, would have prevented this and similar tragedies.”

    Some comments are in order here.

    First, anyone who knows anything at all about Paul knows that his
    most recent remarks are not an attempt at backpedaling on his part: Paul
    is nothing if not a stalwart opponent of what he routinely calls “the
    Warfare State.”  As far as he is concerned, there really is no end to
    the evil that America’s incessant warring abroad promises to visit upon all affected by it—including and particularly those who engage in it….”

    I’ve been a libertarian for 30+ years and find these situations very difficult because no one wins here. I have a lot of respect for Dr. Paul and for Glenn Beck. I don’t agree with either one of them 100% and don’t appreciate their assessments at every turn, but I’ve always appreciated the effort by both to seek common ground on many issues. In the desire to make a point understood, unfortunate comments are made by all of us that we wish we could take back. (Never want to pass up an opportunity to keep the mouth shut if it’s not going to do any good in the end.) One can only move forward and give the other guy or gal a break and let it go. It’s up to Dr. Paul as to whether he feels he must stand by his comment (unnecessary since the incident didn’t take place in battle) when the situation is still so emotional and raw. It’s up to people like Glenn to let it glance off and let it go if at all possible.

     David, how easily you condemn this good man and in the same breath reveal a depth of willful stupidity that is nearly indescribable. War veterans are murderers in your world, patriots are evil, 9/11 never happened, Osama bin Laden was a freedom fighter… . Where does it end? What are you not willing to say? What ridiculous psychopathic rambling will you spout to make a completely inane and unsubstantiated point? Military vets are not to be trusted because they are all murderers? Whatever the malfunction you people have, you have a penchant for prejudice, hatred and violence that is clearly manifest in your words. You know nothing about psychology, yet you make psychological predictions. You know nothing about honor, courage or sacrifice, therefore, you malign the honor, courage and sacrifice of those who not only profess to understand the meaning of those words, but LIVE them every day.  I don’t know why you hate the military. I don’t care. You have a right to graphically illustrate the depths to which a Ron Paul Nazi will sink to. Unfortunately for you, all that really means is that you have the right to graphically illustrate for the rest of us just how truly deficient are the morals and character of the zombies who follow Ron Paul. You are no patriot for your opinions. You’re simply a sociopath willing to memorialize your particular form of hatred in ink. Chris Kyle wasn’t evil. You are.

     No, you DON’T respect the sacrifice they make. Equating the actions of the US military to Nazi death camp overseers is not respect, it is hatred or ignorance. Take your pick. Ron Paul may have served in the military, but that does not make him knowledgeable or worthy of respect. I served in the military as well. It does not give either of us carte blanche to malign someone because they were in the military, much less because they served as a sniper. By the way, the military IS fighting for what they believe is right. They do NOT believe that they are committing murder, nor do they believe that they are being given unlawful orders. The fact that all Ron Paul’s zombies presuppose that 1) the members of the military are acting against their beliefs and 2) they are guilty of such low moral character that they are willing to commit murder in order to not stand up is disrespectful, hateful and plain foolish. Ascribing sociopathic behavior wholesale to hundreds of thousands indicates that you, Ron Paul and all his loyal minions are actually the ones who suffer from that particular malady.

America was always the super power (before Obama) that smaller countries looked to for help. How long can America stay insulated against evil (Muslim brotherhood, etc.) if we turn our backs on the world and think it will just go away. That’s what Ron Paul wants to do – it’s ridiculous and not possible.

    Chris Kyle’s death was a blessing to the American people.

    Ron Paul isn’t described as the annointed one. Barack Obama is and frankly, I can’t see too much difference between the two in terms of attitude. Both say only their way matters and all others must bow down before them. You simply chose to bow to ne and not the other. Continue your ways. You’ll fail just as miserably as you say Glenn is failing. Your way or the highway? Well, life is a highway and I will ride it all night long. So long you poor lost miserable soul.

    Glenn, I think you’re wrong on this.  Maybe you’ve met the dead man and know him other than as a person that shot and killed a lot of people from a long distance.  But in my family we do not make heroes out of killers for our government.  The first thought that came to my head was the words spoken on RP’s tweet.  No joy! No real strong emotion, just sadness and disappointment for more senseless killing.  Since I was a child and studied how our government treated the American Aborigine (Indian) I knew our government was always strongly suspect and that there is something seriously flawed in our system, as well as in mankind. There has been no nobility in any war, just deception and murder and all the sins of mankind — glorified.

    Uechi, wouldn’t that also be the fools who follow 0 & other prez’s to wars that we need not be involved in? I’d suggest researching Combat Veterans For Ron Paul. Also that Dr. Paul received more in donations from active military than any one else.

    You who trash Dr. Paul don’t seem to realize that if we had not been messing in the ME since at least the 50′s we most likely would not have had 9-11.

    As was mentioned, the ‘Patriot’ Act was written before 9-11…note that ‘terrorism’ is the perfect boogy man to scare people into giving up their rights for govt ‘protection’.

    Then there is indefinite detention…another poison fruit from the corrupt US govt ‘war on terror’ ‘tree’ ….also the US citizens 0 had killed because they were labeled terrorists, the excuse used to circumvent their Constitutional rights to arrest & trial by jury.

    If the man & his son were domestic terrorists, arrest them, try them THEN execute them if found guilty. That I could support. Buit just to call them an enemy & have them killed…

    You cannot excuse the manner in which these deaths were carried out. If the rights of these citizens, innocent or guilty,. can be circumvented, how long before ANYONE can be labeled anything some burrocrate lays on them & justify their abridgment of rights & their deaths.

    That could happen to you…

    You forget how easy it is to get your name on a govt ‘terrorist watch list’? I haven’t.
