LRC: Root ‘enthusiastically endorses’ War on Terror

In a blog entry entitled LP VP on RP, Lew Rockwell posts a letter from Kevin Tuma. To the question “why do ‘they’ hate us,” Tuma quotes Bob Barr‘s running mate, Wayne Allyn Root:

  • They hate us because we’re not Islamic.
  • They hate us because we’re a Democracy.
  • They hate us because we allow dissent.
  • They hate us because we treat our women like human beings and equals.
  • They hate us because we let young girls go to school.
  • They hate us because we believe in progress.
  • They hate us because we celebrate music, art, dance, literature, and sexuality.
  • They hate us because we believe in equality of races.
  • They hate us desperately because we actually allow Jews to survive and thrive in our society.
  • They hate us because we don’t murder gays in the street for the “crime” of being gay.

No mention of U.S. foreign policy as a possible reason for why “they” hate us.

Furthermore, of Ron Paul, Root says this:

Ron Paul is my hero on most every fiscal and freedom issue that matters. But he looks naive and weak on the one issue that matters to most Americans- national security and the war on terror. Americans have no interest in apologizing to suicide bombers and mass murderers. Americans crave a leader that is fiscally conservative, socially tolerant and a strong proponent of the war on terror.

    Libertarian Party, the party of principle…

    I hope that Barr says something to the contrary regarding that.

    That article is absolutely disgusting and proves that Root is a total neocon fraud.

    Wrong.

    Fraud involves attempting to deceive, and I don’t think Root could have been any more blatant than he was.
