Time Magazine to Ron Paul: Stop Telling The Truth!

-Daniel McAdams

Time Magazine is angry with Ron Paul. How dare he point out that the media has been over-reacting to the Ebola outbreak? How dare he mention that Canada’s 13 years of bombing Muslim countries has irritated plenty of people on the receiving end of those bombs? How dare he tell the truth about US history: that if the colonies were told they could never leave it is unlikely there would ever have been a United States?

Ron Paul is a “professional provocateur,” screeches Time’s Denver Nicks.

The author of Time’s hit (and miss) piece is outraged that anyone would dare to suggest, as Dr. Paul did in a recent column, that constant US meddling in African affairs has been anything but selfless beneficence. “Dubious-at-best,” sniffed Nicks to Ron Paul’s statement that “the people of Liberia and other countries would be better off if the US government left them alone.” After all, who could possibly object to US-sponsored coups, US bombs, US meddling, US asset-stripping, US social engineering projects in Africa?

Dubious? Has he asked the people of Libya how they feel about US meddling? In fact, Americans are increasingly coming to agree with Ron Paul that we all would be better off if the US government left all of us alone.

That is what really terrifies Denver Nicks and his bosses at Time (and the other mainstream media). The fact that they no longer dictate the limits of debate in the United States. The fact that more and more people are attracted to Ron Paul’s message that only peace and liberty can lead to prosperity.
