Ron Paul Supporters Spray Vinegar at the Sky to Fight “Chemtrails”…I’m Not Kidding
This is a story I couldn’t resist writing. Ron Paul supporters are spraying vinegar at the sky to “kill” clouds. They’re standing in their backyards, on their porches, and in front of their windows, angrily aiming spray bottles filled with vinegar into the air.
How could I not write about this? If I live to be one-hundred years old, will I ever again get the chance to write about something so incredibly insane?
I have several friends who support Ron Paul. The aim of this piece is not to malign or belittle all Paul supporters – just the ones who adhere to the “if Alex Jones says it, it must be true” school of thought. And boy, do those Paul devotees love the “chemtrails” conspiracy theory (the belief that the contrails created by the exhaust of aircraft engines are actually toxic “chemical trails” that the Zionist/Illuminati/Bilderberger/alien-lizard-man secret societies are using to poison the earth).
When not listening to Alex Jones and Jeff Rense, chemtrail believers obsessively take photographs of the “poison trails” and “evil clouds.” Of course, since the alien-lizard-Zionist-Bilderbergers forbid the puppet governments of the world from admitting that chemtrails exist, the intrepid chemtrail hunters have been stymied. Sure, they can photograph them, but they can’t stop ‘em.
Or CAN they? This year, a movement has spread like dengue fever among chemtrail sleuths. This movement claims that chemtrails can be “killed” with vinegar, sprayed upward from the ground. And hundreds of chemtrail true believers are doing just that – and they’re uploading videos to Youtube, Dailymotion, Ebaumsworld, and elsewhere, documenting their chemtrail “kills.”
Of the hundreds of “chemtrail kill” videos, the majority are made by self-described Ron Paul supporters. I’ve dubbed this branch of the Paul camp the “Paulsamics” (as in “Paulsamic vinegar”). If you want to see the sheer volume of Paulsamic videos online, just Google or Youtube-search “chemtrails” and “vinegar.” Below, I’ve embedded the very best video of the lot. It’s ten minutes long. Normally, I would grab a video of that length and edit a highlight reel. But it’s impossible to edit this one down; it’s too damn perfect as it is. Watch as a chemtrail-obsessed, Ron Paul-obsessed mom uses her trusty spray bottle to combat the marauding trails, as her long-suffering teenage son is forced to record her. Witness her great victory as she reemerges later to find that she has “cleaned the sky.” Oh, and don’t miss the clip at the 8-minute mark that shows the state of the family’s lawn as a result of the constant vinegar-showers. Perhaps her gardener can explain to her that vinegar is not lighter than air!
(EDITOR’S NOTE: The woman who originally posted the above video has taken it down and closed her Youtube account. As a result, our readers can no longer see that she is an extreme Ron Paul supporter and volunteer, who has edited Internet campaign spots for Paul, and who posted Ron Paul videos on a daily basis. We don’t want to give the impression that we are describing her as a Paul fanatic based only upon supposition; the evidence was there, but it has been removed)
Now, my Ron Paul-supporting friends will probably claim that it’s unfair to use the actions of a few hundred Paulsamics to tar the entire Paul base. Perhaps. But I’ll say this: If two hundred Rick Perry, Michelle Bachman, or Rick Santorum supporters converged on the U.S./Mexican border to combat illegal immigration by spraying vinegar in the air, I’d consider that every bit as worthy of ridicule as I do the actions of the Paulsamics. Of course, that scenario would never happen. It’s a simple truth that no other GOP candidate has a group of supporters who are doing anything even remotely as lunatic as spraying vinegar skyward to “kill” clouds. This is something totally unique to the Paul crowd.
Several of the Paulsamics brag about the “money bombs” they’ve coordinated for Paul, the organizing they’ve done for his campaign, the Internet spots they’ve created, etc. This is an important segment of his support base. As Leon Wolf at RedState so aptly observes, “Ron Paul has built an entire political career off of pandering to the paranoid and hate filled when he thinks no one is looking.”
And now he has the Paulsamics as a result – a small cadre of dedicated loons who spray vinegar at the sky. Own ‘em or disown ‘em, Dr. Paul. Or do neither, while still happily accepting their money and support. Either way, there’s no denying that your association with the lunatic fringe is a serious stain on your presidential campaign.
Hey – now that I think about it, you know what’s good for removing stains?
