Former Welfare Queen and Phony Conservative Star Parker Insults Ron Paul in Email.

This is from an email sent to me from Star Parker. . Read what she says in email sent to me below. Tell her she is wrong.  star-parker@urbancure.org


Ron Paul, Reagan, and Republican youth

The Ron Paul youth have little interest in a Reagan-like "shining city on a hill" message, or talk about a threatening "evil empire" abroad.

In the 20-plus years that I have worked as a conservative activist, I've spoken on almost 200 university campuses -- usually to Republican and conservative groups.

Over time, I have observed changes in attitude among many young Republicans -- and I believe these shifts help explain the rise of Ron Paul.

When I first started lecturing early in the 1990s, leading heroes of Republican youth were Ronald Reagan and William F. Buckley Jr.

Individual freedom, respect for constitutional limitations on government and traditional values was the message. There was a sense of purpose. America was a "shining city on a hill," as Reagan so often quoted the Puritan pilgrim John Winthrop.

Now, increasing numbers of my campus hosts ask that I not talk about "values." Leave out the stuff about marriage, family and abortion, please, and just talk about the economy.

The materialism and moral relativism that created our left-wing culture is now infecting our youth on the right. Young Republicans may be pushing back on government, but too often their motivation is like that of their left-wing contemporaries: a sense of entitlement and a desire to claim rights, with little interest in corresponding personal responsibilities.

David Yepsen, who directs the Paul Simon Public Policy Institute at Southern Illinois University Carbondale, recently described Ron Paul's success as a "resurgence of the libertarian and isolationist wings of the Republican Party," resulting from "hard times and unpopular wars."

But overlooked is the important role of youth.

Among registered Republicans and Republican-leaning independents who support Paul, 67 percent are under age 34. Among supporters for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, such youths account for 37 percent and 20 percent, respectively.

This youthful surge has helped Paul's very successful fundraising, heavily driven by small contributions via the Internet. Among Republicans who've raised the most funds, Paul got 48 percent of his support from small donors. For Romney and Rick Perry, the shares were 10 percent and 4 percent.

And youth have been critical in Paul's ground organization. I watched this play out when Paul won the straw poll at the Values Voter Summit in Washington, where I spoke last October.

Busloads of youthful Paul supporters arrived just to hear his speech and to pay and register so that they could vote. They put him over the top.

They have little interest in a Reagan-like "shining city on a hill" message, or talk about a threatening "evil empire" abroad.

To the contrary, they are excited by the "leave me alone" candidate who thinks the rest of the world is not our business. Apparently, they share Paul's indifference to the looming threat of a nuclear Iran or the almost complete absence of freedom in most Islamic nations.

Chicago Sun-Times columnist Steve Huntley reports that, by one estimate, more than 200,000 persecuted Coptic Christians will have left Egypt by year's end. He reports a dramatic drop in the presence of Christians throughout the Middle East. Bethlehem's Christian population is now a third of what it was 35 years ago.

The only exception is Israel, where Christians have more than quadrupled since 1948. But Paul sees no distinction between Israel and its neighbors, nor does he think Americans should care.

Self-centered materialism, which leads our youth to support such indifference to global realities, is also driving the collapse of the American family.

Census Bureau statistics show that today 20 percent of Americans ages 18 to 29 are married. Fifty years ago, 59 percent of them were.

In his farewell speech, Reagan issued a warning to the nation: "Are we doing a good enough job teaching our children what America is and what she represents in the long history of the world?"

I doubt that Ron Paul's vision of America is what Reagan had in mind.

  1. nWo....4 LIFE!!!!

  2. Move to Israel you do not belong in the USA. Why not mention the NUKES that ISrael has STOLEN? Oh in your boogie man threat you only think Nuks if in IRan harm humanity? You sold out shill traitor looser your time is near at an end you cant fool the people all the time. You are a Zionist, Bankgangster, Warmonger lover. SOLD OUT.

  3. You're a clown Star.

    Reagan started out great, but ended up being a big spending Republicrat.

    Ron Paul was one of only 5 congressman to originally support Reagan when few others did.

    Once Reagan abandonded important conservative principles, Ron Paul called him on it. Others were too busy trying to make millions from the military industrial complex mass murderers.

  4. She can move to Israel and support them from there. We do not need the likes of her in this country. We should to put the needs of Americans first, and concentrate our money here. We need to clean up our government, and people like her should be the first to go.

  5. Might I implore (Parker), as well as ALL Christians, Jews and Muslims to read “Age of Reason”, by Thomas Paine.

    I am not sure which is worse, The Federal Reserve, or organized religion. Neither seem to reflect the “nature” of a LOVING GOD. To abolish BOTH would go a long way towards living in PEACE.

  6. I hope Karma is good to you but I really doubt it..

  7. What the hell is a conserative?????

  8. The youth are the future - thank god they support Ron Paul!

  9. Obviously she didn't write that herself, it was probably prepared for her by the powers that be...from the context I'd say an Israeli firster.

  10. Dear Star Parker, in regards to your email posting "Ron Paul, Reagan, and Republican youth". John Winthrop is a really bad example to bring up. The man was a persecuting puritan to the hilt and generally a bad man. Both parties in this country are just like John "put people who are not of my religion in stocks" Winthrop. Could it be that young people want more freedom in this country instead of the puritanical nanny state the republicans and Democrats have pushed on us over the past several decades? You fundamentalists christians are the worst of the bunch. You people are driven to push your lame, insipid, unjust, nanny state on others that you have no regard for the freedoms of your fellow Americans who want no part of your religions sexual and social disfunctionality! Get lost Star Parker!

    P.S. Your drug war is just another puritanical inquisition that has gutted our freedoms and caused major injustices in this country. Several decades from now people will look back on it the same way we look back on the salem witch hunts and McCarthyism. You puritans have spent all that money, OUR MONEY, on this evil inquisition and ruined lives for nothing. Look in the mirror Star, You are the bad guy!

  11. "I doubt that Ron Paul's vision of America is what Reagan had in mind."

    You are right, Dr. Paul's vision of America is that of our Founding Fathers' not Reagan, who is dead, and didn't give us the U.S. Constitution and The Bill of Rights. The fact the you try to group Dr. Paul and Reagan as having the same goals, says plenty about your education.

    Ron Paul 2012

  12. Gives the name "Parker" a bad stain

    Ron Paul 2012 !!!

  13. Starr, you are bought and sold by the Banksters. You are a tool and poor one at that.

  14. Go away, Star. Just go away.

  15. Kinda funny. All that talk of the "realities" of this world and she couldn't be specific? But I guess if she did that she'd have to defend the indefensible. She's smart enough to realize she can't pull that rabbit out of the hat. In agreement with previous post, "Go away, Star, Just go away."
