By The Right Scoop


National Geographic has a cop show that takes place in Montana called Frontier Force, where a drunk Ron Paul fan was stopped for DUI. As the cops question him as to whether he will take their inebriation tests, he starts grilling them on the Constitution and the First Amendment. It ends with him yelling “Ron Paul 2012″ several times from the back seat of a police car.

This guy is a hoot!

          Very true Joe. Odd as it is to say, I wish the paulnuts were the left wing in this country rather than the current batch of what we call left in this country. At least, though we’d disagree with them, they would adhere to the Constitution the best they can.

            Yes, I agree. Paul is crazy. Every real American knows that we need BOMBS, lots of BOMBS, to kill all of those dirty brown people.

            Like all true Americans, I love seeing the bombs my country makes blow up those dirty stinking rat kids over in the middle east.

        Face it, everyone but the Paulites consider his army of adolescent male whackos to be typical of libertarians in general. The bad manners and insulting behavior of the True Believers and their organized spamming on every online or straw poll is NEVER addressed by Ron Paul himself. He is totally happy to allow his geek army to abuse the system as long as his money bombs work.

        That Ron doesn’t have the good manners and honor to tell the thousands of jerks who support him to grow up proves he is incapable of real leadership.

        That’s actually what confused me. Why on earth would ANYONE allow that to be aired on TV? Court, sure, he’d have no choice. But as far as I know a TV show can’t just show you without you signing a release form. That’s why so many reality shows blur the faces of bystanders and witnesses.

      Video cam stabilizers are much more compact (and affordable) than they used to be. Image stabilization lenses are common and today’s CMOS imagers can see in infra red. Low light capabilities are much improved. Today’s ‘prosumer’ cams are capable of broadcast-quality video. So even if it looks staged, keep that in mind.

        Mind readin’ and prophesyin’ are bad habits of a lot of RP supporters at this site. You like to think you know what we’re thinking, and what we would do, but in fact, you do not know.

        Clearly it depends on the commentary provided with the item in question.

        My guess is that if someone else had posted the vid first, here in the comments, and then went on to claim it was how RP supporters act, his post would have been removed for “trolling for a fight.”

          and my fav:

          “Face it, everyone but the Paulites consider his army of adolescent male whackos to be typical of libertarians in general.

          That Ron doesn’t have the good manners and honor to tell the thousands of jerks who support him to grow up proves he is incapable of real leadership.”

          Another example of what I am talking about is this totally erroneous one on Palin:

          http://www.politicususa.com/en/palin-fans-kill

          The headline is so much worse than the actual story but read the comments.

          This is the same thing done on all sites, not just this one, against Ron Paul.

          Oh and just so you don’t think I’m picking on RS, I am a constant thorn in the side of Media Matters when they bash Beck and Palin.

          • Anonymous

            You miss a very important fact with those quotes.

            Those were comments on the original post. VERY different from accusing the site owner of what you claim.

            I stated that if someone else had put that vid in a comment and stated that it’s typical of RP supporters, that would clearly be trolling for a fight. Big diff from commenting on what the original post says. Comment sections are full of silliness.

            Meanwhile, you can scan back for lots of abusive comments by RP supporters at this site and around the web. Many threads involve multiple versions of “you neocons” (meaning non-RP supporting Republican voters) and your bloody wars, blah, blah, blah. Gets pretty old.

            I take your point that it’s overdone, and probably by all sides, but I’m standing up for TRScoop here.

      He will actually get his Miranda warning twice, once in the car after he is secured and a second time at the jail once he sobers up. More than likely he will be OR’ed once he is sober handed a copy of the citation with the time for his court appearance on it, which is SOP for first time DUI’s.

      I didn’t need the video to convince me me about the mental issues of RP and his Paulbots.

    • KenInMontana

      It was a .031 that he blew. This was filmed in the Bozeman area which is the home of Montana State University, this guy is just a typical college student who has had too much to drink. Between Missoula and Bozeman (both college towns) we see a lot of this, drunk college kids who like a lot of college kids, ramble and say pretty dumb things to very patient LEOs when they are drunk (first amendment defense for DUI, really?). Hardly a hit piece on Paul supporters.

        The video makes it pretty clear that he a blew a .301. If it had been .031 he would have been under the limit of .08.

        I totally disagree with the crippled, though, about what a .301 would require. I routinely drink 15 beers before lunch and I’m not stumbling around for the rest of the day. Give me two glasses of wine, though, and I’ll need a nap and some aspirin. As far as hard liquor is concerned, I gave that up after my last encounter with Southern Comfort when I was 22.

        • KenInMontana

          Yep it was .301 I transposed the zero for some reason, my bad. The guy likely was doing beer and shots, mixing the two never really goes according to plan.

    Driving on public/government roads means that you have contractually agreed to be bound by the rules, and to accept the consequences of violating those rules. The cops are just enforcing that contract, which is a proper role of the government. If you don’t want to be part of that contract, then don’t drive on public/government roads. The man agreed to have his individual rights violated if he broke the contract, and that’s what we’re seeing here, even though the guy doesn’t realise it.

    • http://punditpawn.wordpress.com PunditPawn

      Many people are in violation of their ‘contract’ when they leave the bar. Only a fraction of them are stopped, which in a way discriminates against the worst offenders even though the lesser offenders have still broken the law (yea, and their ‘contract’ with government).

    • KenInMontana

      Driving is a privilege not a right, the continuance of that privilege is contingent on living up to certain responsibilities and by driving impaired he failed to live up to those responsibilities, so in truth none of his rights were “violated”. However, your overall premise is correct.

          KenInMontana,

          Does one have to point out where RS indicates this behavior is indicative of Ron Paul supporters? Ask yourself the question: What make this news worthy to devote a blog post to? If this were a Rick Perry supporter or a Sarah Palin supporter would this even be an issue? It’s only funny (to RS) BECAUSE it’s a Ron Paul supporter. I think that point is fairly obvious (especially given some of the earlier comments that indicate that this is common to RP supporters).

          So you can pretend this is just an ‘innocent’ post to poke fun at a drunk guy, but you and I both know there is something deeper being meant by this; Barton has a very valid point especially about the way the MSM loves to do hit jobs on the Tea Party.

          • KenInMontana

            As a matter of fact, Yes. He leveled a specific accusation. I’m not pretending about anything, much less any “powers” of divining the motivations of someone else. In the end every candidate is fair game in the election process, and Paul supporters are as guilty as any other candidate’s supporters of attacking anyone who questions their candidate’s position. Besides the fact that this is RS’s site and he is free to post whatever he likes, just as those who disagree with his POV are free to go elsewhere.

            • http://twitter.com/cfallon57 Cheryl Fallon

              Yes, but the question remains would this have been posted if this were a hard core Palin supporter acting foolishly or passed over for being a waste of time?

              I believe that you are reading way to much into the ramblings of a drunk. The fact that he is drunk and the discussion of the first amendment question to the cop are probably not related. How many intelligent well thought out conversations have the rest of us had when we had a few too many? The mind loses its ability to connect thoughts and subjects. He was just weird.

              • KenInMontana

                Actually no, I have heard attempted “Constitutional defenses” by folks that had a “few too many” quite frequently over the years, more often than not by college students. If it is indicative of anything it is a lack of understanding of or, complete ignorance of the document.

    Republicans have to be extra careful of their behavior at all times unlike the leftists that get a “free ride” for their behavior and actions. Example: In Philadelphia the thugs that said they would kill all the White babies and would not allow people to vote…nothing was or will ever be done about that “hate crime” until obama is out of office.

    I have to admit, that was interesting. I’m certainly not condoning his alcohol level, that was his “choice” not “excuse”. I thought the police handled it very well and knew the situation. I’ve had my run-ins with a few Ron Paul fans and let’s just say they did more to deter me to vote for him than they did to convince me to vote for him. I have several friends that are Ron Paul fans who do not carry themselves in those ways. I think it’s more of a lesson to think before you drive and speak (and maybe don’t talk politics with the police when drinking).

    And I would have to agree, if it was a Sarah Palin supporter, a conservative, a Teaparty member, any of the other Republican candidates, it would be 24/7 viral. If it was an Obama supporter you would have to do a lot of searching for it and not on google as your search engine either. Shouldn’t we be privy to it all even if we don’t like it.

    An aside… ATF was at a concert in Tampa, Florida recently busting tail-gaters (in Florida it may be tail-gators) for underage drinking. The local police were not involved. It was federal agents in SWAT and riot gear. Getting our youth used to the presence of federal law enforcement? Oh, I guess it is BATF now. I am always reminded of WACO and Ruby Ridge (FBI).

    If the GOP had any cajones they’d give him an ultimatum to rein them in or be locked out of the debates and primaries. Of course the Repubics are too stupid to even put on debates designed to make their guys look good. There’s no chance they can handle the Paul Nuts.

      The problem, though, is that Rupaul, Grand Dragon of the Paulnuts, will probably go 3rd party. If he does that, he runs America into the serious danger of a split vote that will go against the GOP (not the liberals). The liberals will see no split vote, and this will mean another Obama (or some other leftist miscreant) scoring another victory, and, quite possibly, doing IRREVOCABLE harm to the United States, it’s Constitution and it’s People. If Rupaul wants to lose, again, that’s just fine. Let his paulnuts run out of money, and its made even sweeter with the fact that he’s quitting the House:

    If this is a slam due to drunkenness, it is only fair to say that Ted Kennedy and bush were quite fond of the bottle. Of course, bush found god and got sober. But we don’t want to get into dirty political discourse, when each party has it’s party animals.

    So is this a jab at drunk drivers (as it should be) or a jab at your attempt to denigrate ALL Ron Paul fans? VERY disappointed in you RS. There is not that much difference between us and we are all fighting for the same thing, but you help the progressive cause by this petty infighting. I’ve seen some pretty stupid Bachman fans but don’t put them out there for ridicule. After all, we should be looking at the candidate, not their supporters.

      At his weight, which I would hazard a guess at between 200 to 225 pounds, we’ll say 220lbs, if he drank a case of beer over a period of 3 hours (I have seen many people do just this and stagger away) his BAC would be .365 .

    Dear Right Scoop and Right Scoop Fans,

    If you actually pay attention to what Ron Paul says, you would agree with him 85-90% of the time. Ron Paul supporters share much more common ground with you than with Obama or any standard liberal.

    We all agree that the Constitution needs to be legalized immediately.
    We all agree that Life and Liberty should be protected.
    We all agree that government is not the solution to our woes.

    Ron Paul happens to take it a step further and believes that government is not the solution to the world’s woes either. The government of the United States of America should not be the solution for problems faced in other nations.

    If you believe our government sucks at providing solutions here at home, why wouldn’t you believe that it sucks at providing solutions abroad?

    It. just. makes. sense.

    So instead of bashing Ron Paul fans, who happen to be passionate about their consistent, principled platform, focus your energy on the real people who are destroying America. Obama and his liberal zombies.

      You mean like, if we build a fence for border security, it will be used to prevent U.S. citizens from leaving? So we’ll be prisoners of our government if we try to enforce our borders?

        At least Paul knows the history of the United States.

        • KenInMontana

          The interment of Japanese Americans was indeed a dark stain on our nation’s history, but it’s use in this context is stretching it considerably. Not to mention that it was carried out by an Executive Order by a “Democratic/Socialist” President. In otherwords, Fail!

        • KenInMontana

          You’re clearly exaggerating on this, on the overall percentage of “Hate on Ron Paul” posts. It’s actually less than a handful and as it is RS’s site, that said I have seen in posts here that the “hate” posted on this site comes as much from Paul’s supporters as it does from his detractors. Paul supporters come here and complain about the “treatment” they and their candidate receive while one of the largest Paul forums over at liberty tree has a history of banning all those who raise the slightest question of RP’s policies regardless of how their question is raised. In truth, coming on to this forum and leveling accusations of “blatant hate” against this site, it’s owner as well as it’s users does nothing to sway anyone’s opinion, in fact it only serves to further entrench those who are beset further into the position they already hold.

    everyone from any political camp finds one moron, puts them on camera and advertises them as the typical supporter for one candidate or the other. just like when obama was on the campaign trail and hannity was playing a bunch of welfare babies screaming “i dont gotta worry about my mortgage! obamaa!” and “obama gonna buy me a car i dont need to pay my car notes no mo!!” so most public political figures are guilty of mudslinging through supporters.

    I wanted to commend the writers, just in case they look here, on providing such a brilliant socially constructed memetic response for use by anyone caught in debate against a person who wields the Constitution during debate. I see the mark of a fine Gentleman.

    This was definitely needed, as I’ve seen many an argument made awkward by those unable to conjure up a suitable logical fallacy when up against Constitutional arguments. There are several possibilities available here. I suspect we’ll see them used first on Huffington Post, but I could be wrong. Gloriously produced Reno911 gestalt expression. This was no ‘don’t taze me bro’, but hat’s off still.
    I was especially impressed by the line: “What’s the legal limit for hurting somebody?”. This fine meme was belligerent, yet it resonated with all required elements in a rare eloquence. It would have been heard far and wide in days of old. Long and hard enough to imprint t-shirts and perhaps sustain the economy in a humorous and strangely ironic postmodern way! Oh, hell! The timing of protagonist’s “Ron Paul 2012″ declaration at the end was magnifique!

    Another thing, a socially constructed spectacle delivered through a reality television entertainment pogrom is obviously 100% real – you’d have to be a truther birther conspiracy crackpot wacko kook-bot to question the authenticity of something like this. Also, tin-foil too! That’s why this is worthy of praise. love!
