Rand Paul flips the bird over debate demotion

WASHINGTON — Republican presidential hopeful Rand Paul isn’t going quietly into the night.

Sure, he didn’t make it onto the main stage at Thursday night’s debate. And so he opted to not even participate in the so-called undercard debate.

But he isn’t sitting quietly in Washington.

In an interview with ABC News Radio, according to their correspondent Aaron Katersky, Paul’s message for the press was simple: He shot them the middle finger.

He was making the point for his supporters as to how we feel, yet inadvertently making the point for himself. Second-tier? Never was. The world of media will change with Rand's move to skip kissing their magnanimous ring, and circumventing them through various means of social media. A revolution has begun.

Rand Paul is trending right now on Facebook because of this "middle finger to the media"

Before putting up these types of hit pieces it is best to clearly delineate them for what they are! Put them up as the fraud they are... anyone with half their vision can see the bad Photoshop in this, and I doubt Rand has a deformed hand. It was no doubt intended to dissuade Iowa church and caucus voters to turn away from Rand in disgust! These enemies of the constitution are fond of such dis-information and vulgarities... after all they are the aggressive war mongers who have no problem bombing baby collateral damage, along with death without any due process or declaration of the just cause of war, clean out of the world, with their drones!              

On the plus side, it does indicate the desperation in the minds of the un-Paul cabal.

(Picture is simply blown up from original posted.)

The operative sentence in the original hit piece was...

"... according to their correspondent Aaron Katersky, Paul’s message for the press was simple: He shot them the middle finger..."!  This sentence allows for inaccuracies in the photo. It also keeps Katersky in good favor with his handlers. It is not his first hit piece. The FED forces are getting desperate!

In my opinion, this was NOT photoshopped.  There is a motion blur because this is a screen shot taken from a video. The video that i did see completely blurred the gesture, but judging by the radio interviewers chuckling reaction, he definitely flipped the bird.  Note, that he says that this is the sentiment that 99% of his supporters have been sharing with him regarding the media.  This could endear him to some, and make him more repulsive to others, so im not sure the net effect of this move.  But if the old maxim is 'Any press is good press', then it was a good move on his part.

there is a bit of a spin to the story, as you might expect....

If it indeed was photo shopped as you claim it was, then why do you think that Rand or the campaign for that matter hasn't addressed the issue, or better yet, condemned the journalist? Think about it. Would the reporter really jeopardize his career AND a lawsuit?

Sorry, but Rand is an adult, not an alter boy. In this day and age, ff someone is really willing to vote for someone else over the use of a middle finger, or the word "BULLSHIT", then they have SERIOUS issues. They may want to examine what's more offensive - a middle finger - or the indiscriminately mass killings of innocent civilians in another country.

 

 

 

“I think to be artificially designated in some kind of lower or second tier sends a signal to the voter that you’re not the same and don’t have a chance,” Paul told ABC News Radio’s Aaron Katersky. “It’s a big field. If you’re in the second tier of a 12-person race, it really is sending the wrong message to the voters.”

But the Kentucky senator, who will be hosting an online town hall during the time of the debate, used more than words to get his message across.

“Your supporters, from what you’re hearing from them, do they back you in this?” Katersky asked.

“99 percent of our supporters are calling and saying, for the media, ‘That’s where you can go,’” Paul said, while waving his middle finger at the reporter.

Katersky, who laughed at the gesture, told Paul he didn’t take it personally. “Not you, of course,” Paul clarified with a chuckle.

I'm sure we all feel that way towards them, not just the msm.
