Hours after slamming the death of former Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, who was shot to death at a gun range last weekend in Texas, former Texas Rep. Ron Paul issued a Facebook statement to clarify his earlier remarks….
“A policy of non-violence, as Christ preached, would have prevented this and similar tragedies.”
Ron Paul had some great ideas. When he talked about cutting domestic government spending he could be downright exciting.
Then there are moments like this, when he jumps the rails and you could swear that he is the product of four generations of family inbreeding.
Former Republican presidential contender Ron Paul has just put out a tweet slamming U.S. Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle, author of the New York Times bestseller American Sniper, who was murdered this weekend at a shooting range.
Here’s the tweet
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.
“…He who lives by the sword dies by the sword”? What in the name of God does that have to do with it!
If Kyle “lived by the sword,” he certainly wielded that sword protecting the lives of thousands of U.S. soldiers and Iraqi citizens.
In an age when MVP sports “heroes” drop the F-bomb on international TV, after playing a silly game, Kyle was the real deal: a living legend and true hero. Kyle died at the hands of a man he was trying to help; it was the way he lived his life—attempting to save others.
Regardless of Paul’s views on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Chris Kyle did his job and then some.
Two families in Texas lost their sons, husbands and fathers this weekend, at the hands of another casualty of war. For a former U.S. congressman to be so insensitive at a time when these families and friends are in mourning is beyond reprehensible.
The real problem of gun violence in America was chillingly highlighted with Kyle’s death this weekend. The “sword” did not kill the decorated SEAL sniper; a mentally disturbed man, also a veteran, killed Chris Kyle and his friend.
Where is the photo-shop of President Obama focusing on mental health in America? He and his left-wing shills in the media have deliberately ignored it. Aurora, the Gabby Giffords shooting, Sandy Hook; all of these crimes were perpetrated by mentally disturbed individuals.
The photo would certainly have to be shopped because this president, and apparently Mr. Paul, have done nothing address the true causes that lead to events like this.
At least Paul can claim senility; President Obama just doesn’t care.
Our apologies for the downtime this week; we’ve had Obama flu for three days. Oh, don’t deny it; you know it is his fault. Just like Katrina was George… H/t Drudge
