Blessed are you when people reproach you, persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven. For that is how they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
– Jesus (Mt. 5:11,12)
During Saturday night’s ABC/Facebook debate American’s witnessed presidential candidates laugh at, patronize, and mock Congressman Ron Paul. Well, it is not Dr. Paul they are laughing at, but it is the majority of Americans who they mock, patronize and abuse.
A bully can’t hide their psychopathy. And these candidate’s exhibit their psychopathy when someone like Dr. Paul presents sound, principled and ethical discussion around current important issues. The candidates repeatedly interrupted Ron, shook their heads while he spoke, made faces, and utter comments like John McCain, who was caught on microphone saying: “we’ll miss you tomorrow,” referring to Fox’s decision to keep Ron out of Sunday’s debate.
“We, in foreign policy, ought to have a golden rule. We ought to treat others as we would want others to treat us. And we don’t treat others so fairly. We treat them like we’re the bully, that we’re the policeman of the world, and we’re going to tell them to behave.”
