As much as I love Dr. Paul, and as much as I love seeing a human piece of filth like Newt Gingrich get called out on his tyrannical nonsense, I do have to question whether Paul does more harm than good in his response.
Remember, there is nothing valorous in being threatened into killing people.
If a criminal were to kidnap you, hold a gun to your head, and then order you into combat against his rivals, should you be proud that you obeyed his orders?
Should a room full of people stand up and applaud your obedience?
We should never forget that the real heroes are those people who dodged the draft illegally. Specifically illegally, as in Newt’s deferment doesn’t count because his fascist family connections made sure he didn’t have to serve without the threat of any consequences. No, those people who faced the machine and told it to fuck off – those are the people we should be applauding.
