Video: Ron Paul’s immigration ad; Update: Paulnuts to hold rally in … World of Warcraft?

posted at 11:35 am on December 30, 2007 by Allahpundit

Works for me. Will it work for his supporters? Libertarians seem to prefer open borders and lord knows the college kids who have glommed onto the rEVOLution must be flummoxed by the sort of EVOL Paul has in mind for illegals. No matter. If being a Paul supporter means anything, it means the Paulnut is always right. And he is, in this case!

Below that you’ll find his next most recent ad. Anything missing? Any core Paul policy proposals, say, going discreetly unmentioned these days?

Update: They’re the political equivalent of a high-school D&D club.

Update: And here we find the Paul campaign exercising the discretion they’ve become so famous for, issuing denunciations of Fox News before checking to find out if what they’re denouncing ever really happened.

Yeah,good ad, too bad he’s just as wacked as his minions.

bbz123 on December 30, 2007 at 11:39 AM

Not a bad strategy, core conservative values. I wonder if he will come out with his isolationists stance on foreign policy?

Me thinks no…

broker1 on December 30, 2007 at 11:43 AM

Pair of sharp ads.

Spirit of 1776 on December 30, 2007 at 11:46 AM

looks good!

offroadaz on December 30, 2007 at 11:47 AM

Don’t look now, but Fred Thompson is within 5 points of the leader.

Gregor on December 30, 2007 at 11:48 AM

Ugh I guess I did something wrong. Post got deleted. Sorry.

Wow….nice paint job on that jalopy.

Limerick on December 30, 2007 at 11:51 AM

I know it’s somewhat irrelevent, but his voice creeps me out.

tickleddragon on December 30, 2007 at 11:53 AM

Ron Paul’s college support (his base as it were) only care about legalizing drugs.

bnelson44 on December 30, 2007 at 11:56 AM

only care mostly care

These polls are making me dizzy

bnelson44 on December 30, 2007 at 11:58 AM

Ron Paul’s ads remind me of congressional campaign ads.

bnelson44 on December 30, 2007 at 11:59 AM

None of his isolationism, none of his blaming America for the world’s woes. He’s not dumb, that’s for sure. Really is a shame. One attitude change and he could be a hell of a leader.

MadisonConservative on December 30, 2007 at 12:00 PM

Those are great ads, but Ron Paul is still bat $hit crazy…

doriangrey on December 30, 2007 at 12:02 PM

Does Ron Paul even know where the borders are?

SECOND LOOK AT MY SANITY!

By the way, I drove around much of the state of AZ yesterday and I saw Ron Paul signs everywhere I went. No one else (I think it is too early legally for us).

hillbillyjim on December 30, 2007 at 12:23 PM

I’ve always been under the impression the the Libertarians wanted the Fed Gov’t to only control the currency and the coastline.
What’s changed?

harrison on December 30, 2007 at 12:25 PM

My BS meter broke along time ago on all the candidates save Fred Thompson. Go Fred!

Well, the WoW is on the gold standard, after all.

andycanuck on December 30, 2007 at 12:33 PM

The Ronulans, and the great one himself ought to move the whole campaign in to Second Life. There they would find their true constituency and there they could probably win.

JeffB. on December 30, 2007 at 12:43 PM

There’s a bit of the Paulnut in every unhinged nativist who repeats the mantra “Open borders! Amnesty! Shamnesty!” as if it were a rational policy argument…

LagunaDave on December 30, 2007 at 12:47 PM

Ron Paul supporters have created and made their own campaign billboards in Central Texas that banner the word “REVOLUTION” with an inverted L and highlighted evol.

So how does campaign financing apply when contributors simply do it independently of the organization?

I can only figure that so many people are angry about their disillusionment with our current state of affairs that they simply gravitated to Ron Paul’s internet collection plate. Is that trickle-down economics?

maverick muse on December 30, 2007 at 12:47 PM

The Bush presidency open border legacy gets another plug from Mrs. Cheney’s “don’t fence me in” line.

subliminal efficacy

I kind of missed the part about “killing the throat-slashers” in the second ad. Oh wait. It’s never been there.

For what it’s worth…..

Don’t knock it, if it gets them voters.

9 million subscribers! Although not all in the US and a lot less who can actually vote probably.

I wonder if they’ll hold it in a PvP area. Then legions of people named McCain, Hillary, Obama and Giuliani can gank them!

Dash on December 30, 2007 at 1:03 PM

World of Warcraft…YES!!!
Ron Paul…..NO!!!
GO FRED!!! GO!!!!

Paul is moving towards a 3rd party run with the Constitution Party:

jp on December 30, 2007 at 1:10 PM

The rally will be led from IronforgeCross to Stormwindfront by a group of players (a “guild”) named “RP Revolution”.

Fixed that for them.

When the virtual war game launched in November 2004, GameSpy’s Allen Rausch wrote a do’s and don’ts that included “Don’t: Bring real-world politics into the game.”

Common sense advice that would make the game more fun for everybody is of course completely wasted on Ronulans. It would be so unreasonable to expect cultists to be able to go five minutes without screaming “Ron Paul!”.

ReubenJCogburn on December 30, 2007 at 1:42 PM

Alliance. Figures.

Maybe he’ll show up at the next debate with Excalibur.

Limerick on December 30, 2007 at 2:52 PM

Is the WoW march on a PvP or PvE server. It will make all the difference ;)

Will Paultard be saving the Constitution, or whateverthehell they have in WoW, too?

Just think, we have enough batsh*t deranged, BDS, PEST infused folks in this country as it is. Now we will have to deal with them once Paul loses the primaries, and, God forbid, runs and loses as an Independent.

William Teach on December 30, 2007 at 4:50 PM

eh.

madmonkphotog on December 30, 2007 at 5:16 PM

Have the rally on a PvP server…pls. :)

Asher on December 30, 2007 at 5:18 PM

There is no ‘freedom of speech’ or ‘right to peaceful protest’ in WoW, they call it spam and its against the terms of use. I doubt seriously that their little march lasts long

Keli on December 30, 2007 at 5:38 PM

I would think they’d want to hold their rally in City of Heroes/Villains rather than WoW. A place where spandex clad people wear their underwear on the outside of their pants seems a natural habitat for conspiracy theorists and neonazis to hang out together. Much more so than Azeroth. Of course Statesman and Lord Recluse would probably take turns kicking Ron Paul’s butt so maybe thats why they’re steering clear of Paragon City.

Rip Ford on December 30, 2007 at 6:11 PM

OF COURSE they are rallying on WoW.

Anyplace where you can make your zombie spambots look like the support of actual humans. They may be able to turn out more “marchers” than the population of Earth.

Karl on December 30, 2007 at 6:53 PM

Go Fred!

Ryan Gandy on December 30, 2007 at 8:15 PM

So, any bets on what charcters Ronulans are most likely to choose for their WOW characters? I’m going with Undead (Shadow) Priests, (what with the Enlightenment talent not being one of their specialties). Anyone else feel a PvP war coming on? Snowball fight!

Subsunk

PS,

(My kids showed me all this stuff. How else could I know anything about it? After all, you think I have time to actually reach level 70 in this world, much less the WOW World?)

Subsunk out.

Subsunk on December 30, 2007 at 8:46 PM

Update: And here we find the Paul campaign exercising the discretion they’ve become so famous for, issuing denunciations of Fox News before checking to find out if what they’re denouncing ever really happened.

Actually, Ron Paul is going to be excluded from a GOP forum on Fox News not a debate. I say, its about time we get serious and start having serious discussions. But of course the Paulites are going to be very angry.

Complete7 on December 30, 2007 at 9:35 PM

Hucklebilly will tank. McCain will too.

saved on December 30, 2007 at 9:36 PM

The ad works for me, but then I’ve never been in favor of completely open borders. I’m a tall fence/wide gate guy. Keep the violent criminals out, take away economic and socialistic carrots, and let the labor market decide our immigration levels.

Mark Jaquith on December 31, 2007 at 12:54 AM

They’re even taking over WOW now.

These guys really are everywhere.

Amazing.

Glad I never got into WOW, otherwise I might be inclined to be PO’d at their invasion of my territory.

As if it is almost the perfect pitch for whine-ning.

christophercube on December 31, 2007 at 3:38 PM

Holy cow! I just got back from the grocery store, where I encountered a Ron Paul supporter, he was nuttier than a fruitcake, the odd thing, even though he talked about Ron Paul, the flier he gave me says: “Gore-Fisher 2008″ also, Mel Gibson is somehow worked into it. Very odd.
