'Joan the Silencer' Stop-Ron-Paul-2012 Viral Meme Origin — Sad :(

Joan the silencer has become a meme based on a picture from the 2012 Republican National Convention, in which a delegate, known as Joan Clendenin, from California, holds a piece of paper in front of a delegate, Jeremy Blosser, from Texas while he was trying to get the attention of chairman so he could call a point of order. While the mic was not actually on, the cameras were and they caught this moment of disdain for the Liberty Movement. The RNC establishment did not allow Ron Paul to speak or be nominated at the convention because he could have possibly beaten Mitt Romney.
