Ron Paul Paul Craig Roberts Matt Welch: Nuts of A Feather

Over at Libertarianism for Idiots, Matt Welch simultaneously kisses Ron Paul's ass and sorta chides Père Paul for promoting on his (Paul's) website the Paul Craig Roberts assertion that L'Affaire Hebdo was a false flag operation. Purportedly protecting the brand, Welch sniffs:
Bad arguments – including/especially any from me or the staff of this magazine – do not deserve a free pass merely by dint of being ideologically simpatico.
Funny, but I don't recall Welch correcting his own lie contained another Paulsucker from 2007:
When conservatives feel comfortable mocking the victims gunned down by Clinton-era attorney general Janet Reno's FBI in Waco, Tex., in 1993, it suggests that a complacent and increasingly authoritarian establishment feels threatened.
Welch of course is doing what he criticizes fellow nut Paul Craig Roberts for: falsely accusing the United States government of killing innocent victims. 

Janet Reno was not attorney general or in charge of the FBI when Welch's bro, Dave Koresh, and his followers gunned down the federal agents lawfully serving search warrants, as Welch surely knows.  None of the later killings at the Davidian compound were from FBI or government guns.

Welch and Roberts are from the same delusional sewer, and they should remain there, together.

Update: Welch's reference in his post today to "the television show I co-host" is a little dated. I'd like to think FOX Business Channel showed some journalistic integrity, but there isn't a first time for everything. Guess I'll have to credit the majesty of the marketplace for Welch's well-deserved shitcanning.

Nick (Fonzie) Gillespie was co-author of the dishonest article, too.
