No Respect, I Fear

Is the banning of Ron Paul supporters from a Republican forum really news? Mainstream political junkies always despise party-crashers. They treat them like dirt in order to maintain their own ideological purity. They know this works because they rely on what they view as the fundamental insanity of anyone who disagrees with the party line:  If you are crazy enough to hold an opinion that doesn’t conform to either of the two universal political parties, they figure you are just paranoid enough to vote against the other party no matter what.

Republicans will reel in the libertarians later in the campaign by tapping into the fear of a communist/gay/multiculti/abortionette Hilary Monster; Democrats will reel in their own fringe by invoking the fascist/racist/patriarchal Flying Theocracy Monster.
