The Young Americans for Freedom has voted the Texas congressman off its national advisory board in the aftermath of his straw poll win at CPAC over his positions on national security issues.
“Rep. Paul’s refusal to support our nation’s military and national security interests border on treason,” says YAF (Young Americans for Freedom) Director Jordan Marks.
But about this Goldwater-era organization, Ron Paul’s political director only responded “I thought they were defunct.”
Not quite, and Wikipedia claims they still have chapters at “several” colleges.
So why was this news-worthy?
12 guys in a tree-house somewhere don’t like Ron Paul! So what?
But Google News returns 662 results for “Ron Paul YAF,” including the New York Times, Washington Post, Miami Herald, Wall Street Journal, CNN, CBS, ABC, MSNBC, Fox News, and the Los Angeles Times, which is to say, every major news organization in the United States.
And it’s all about 12 guys in a tree-house who don’t like Ron Paul!
Is it possible that Corporate News and its masters are terrified of Ron Paul, and grasping at every straw that might discredit him with the conservatives who will dominate Republican primaries in 2012?
