Most of us at the Lady Liberty’s Lamp collective have known Mr. Taylor for some time now. We have hardly ever been on the same side of the issues with him and his Free Republic buddies. We even have had a few sparing matches from time to time.
But, we do have our hats off in respect to Mr. Taylor for taking an honest stand against the really ugly elements in the conservative movement, especially the Ron Paul cult followers.
This seems to show some sort of issue between the racist Ron Paul followers and the rest of the Republican party.
Just today Ron Paul staffer Lew Rockwell posted up on his blog a big slam against the rally calling the organizers “Red State fascists”…

No More Marches on DC
Posted by Lew Rockwell on September 14, 2009 08:19 AM
For many years, pro-lifers have expended vast time, energy, and money “marching on Washington” every January, to exactly zero effect. Worse, they hark back to pro-redistribution events. And always, as with the latest 9/12 extravaganza headed by red-state fascists, the marchers assemble on the “National Mall,” the government grass that extends from Lincoln’s Roman temple — where he sits enthroned like Jupiter, fasces and all — to George Washington’s obelisk, an Eqyptian monument to the god Amon Re. In the distance is the capitol, whose dome copies the Roman pantheon, temple to all the gods. In the top of the dome is a painting of Washington being assumed, like the divinized Julius Caesar, into Heaven upon his death. Even Jefferson is portrayed as a god in a Roman temple. Not far away is the the Greek temple where the nine supremes hand down the “law.” Then there is the vast executive apparatus, headed by a living god, and dedicated to killing, spying, taxing, redistributing, inflating, and controlling. Really, DC is one nasty place. So why would anyone concerned about the state and its power “march on Washington”? Such events only dissipate energy, and fool people into thinking that their time and money have accomplished something, as the regime laughs up its sleeve. Indeed, that is the purpose. So stay home. Read, write, work, organize, and avoid DC like the plague it is.
Kristenn, we feel for ya, man, and good luck to ya!
