Fans of the "Ron Paul Revolution" were not happy with his son Sen. Rand Paul after he endorsed Mitt Romney last night on Sean Hannity's Fox News Show.
Paul explained that although his "first choice was always my father," he insisted that he had a lot in common with Romney, who signaled to him that he was serious about a number of government reforms.
But the backlash on Sen. Paul's Facebook page was fierce as the vocal supporters of the Ron Paul Revolution, took to the comments section to denounce his son. As of this morning, over 2,000 comments were posted, a majority of them negative. Supporters blasted Rand Paul for "selling out" the legacy of his father to the "Republican establishment."
A few fans approved of Rand Paul's decision, but only 270 people "liked" his endorsement message.
Others even speculated that Rand Paul was threatened or bribed into supporting Romney, by the Bilderberg group, suggesting that it wasn't a coincidence that his endorsement came after their conference.
Other angry fans even started a "Ron Paul Supporters Who Don't Give A Sh*t Who Rand Endorses" Facebook page that now has 210 members.
Here is some examples of the backlash from Rand Paul's Facebook page:
Eric Elledge: DISGUSTING. Right before Father's Day too. What a piece of garbage Rand turned out to be. One & Done Senator!
Jason Sauer: you have lost my support for being a TRATOR to your father
Mario Jimenez: Something is definitely not right. I have a feeling Rand was strong-armed by someone pulling the strings. But this just ain't right.
Mikey Indigo: Someone better have put a gun to your head, otherwise your father should disown you. Good luck sleeping at night knowing what you did to this country. I hope the price was worth it.
Richie Proffitt: I guess the 30 minute meeting with Mittens was actually a 12 hour lobotomy. Maybe the whole zombies thing is to get us to fall in line and vote status quo. Meh.
Matt Reibel: Notice that he made this announcement just a few days after the Bilderberg conference. The elite will stop at nothing to prevent liberty from reclaiming the White House and our government so I highly suspect the Bilderberg attendees did one of the following: 1) came up with an offer that Rand Paul could not refuse 2) they have some very serious dirt on Rand or someone close to him and threatened to release it if he didn't endorse Romney and sell out
Mark Elmo Ellis: Matt!!! Excellent point!!! Comes right on the heels of that meeting, doesn't it???
Sandi Begic: The Bilderberg group threatened Ron Pauls life, i think Rand did this to protect his father.
Richard Rogers: Romney stands for everything that Ron Paul fights to destroy. Rand"Benedict" Paul I guess this means you will be heading to the Bilderberg next year. Rand when you dance with the Devil you will get burned.
Other Paul fans voiced their approval, although they were in the minority:
Susan Wallace Mckinney: So very pleased that Rand is making sense. Hopefully the t-party can see that we need to stand together and get Obama out of office. I've always said, I would love to see a Romney/Rand Paul ticket. or maybe even vice verse.
Coleman Langham: I wish these nut jobs would just unsubscribe to the page. Go listen to Alex Jones and eat paint chips. I will not support Mitt, but I'm not going to blast Rand on what could be the most genius strategy to actually win the presidency in 2016. The people on here spewing hateful things about Rand are half the reason Ron did not win. Why? Because you can't even engage in a conversation with some one that disagrees with you without disrespecting them and turning them off. You have to be able to communicate with someone to actually educate them. You guys will hold the movement back with your venomous, spiteful and hateful talk. You guys are like dumb liberals not even knowing you are killing what you are trying to accomplish.
W Guy Finley: Rand did support his dad, his dad lost. His dad didn't win the popular vote in a single state he ran in. Your hopes have been based on a hopeless delegate strategy that will do nothing but make the other delegates plug their ears at the convention. Lending your support while lobbying the nominee to adopt your positions is the best option when you have lost. That's exactly what Rand is doing. Good on you Senator.
