A February 20th veterans rally in Washington D.C. for Presidential candidate Ron Paul, initiated and hosted by activist and veteran Adam Kokesh, was completely ignored by the mainstream corporate controlled media yesterday in what can only be described as a total black-out.
This is not really news in light of the fact that this type of treatment of Ron Paul has been ongoing;
1.his debate time has been limited and the questions either ‘stacked’ in favor of the other GOP contenders or irrelevant altogether to Ron Paul’s central issues (end illegal wars, end the Federal Reserve, abolish the IRS, restore the Constitution)
2.his access to TV has been limited and when he is a guest of a show it appears more akin to a guerrilla ambush than an interview
3.his character has been attacked in a corporate media smear campaign
4.the GOP primary elections have been riddled with corruption and fraud
The rally included active duty soldiers as well, even though a leaked email from Joel A. Weger, Senior Attorney at the Office of the Assistant General Counsel in the Department of the Navy instructed:
“You may wish to advise your command regarding this particular event because of the apparent solicitation of active duty personnel”.
The column of soldiers, marching in formation and chanting phrases such as “End the Fed” and “President Paul”, came to a halt with backs turned to the White House in what is being described as a display of no confidence in the Obama administration.
A period of 8 minutes of silence, each second representing a veteran’s suicide, followed by a 21 minute prayer, where each second stood for a fallen soldier-all since Obama has taken office-were observed.
