McCain Calls Pro-Liberty Conservatives “Wacko Birds”

At least we know where John McCain stands. After dismissing Rand Paul’s historic filibuster with this…

“If Mr. Paul wants to be taken seriously he needs to do more than pull political stunts that fire up impressionable libertarian kids in their college dorms.”

…he has doubled down on the insults it pleases him to hurl at true conservatives who uphold individual liberty:

In an interview with the Huffington Post, McCain referred to Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) and Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) as “wackos.”

“They were elected, nobody believes that there was a corrupt election, anything else,” McCain said. “But I also think that when, you know, it’s always the wacko birds on right and left that get the media megaphone.”

Asked to clarify, McCain said he was referencing “Rand Paul, Cruz, Amash, whoever.”

At least McCain didn’t call them “Tea Party Hobbits,” an epithet he has used for those who would restrain the explosive growth of government spending.

Rep. Amash responds:

On behalf of the useless RINO establishment that handed control of the government over to commies like Obama, McCain has crossed the line. You cannot oppose the runaway statism that is destroying the country without opposing McCain and his kind.

    McLame, Grahamnesty, and Bathhouse Barry simply need to get a room and call it doneskis.

    THANK GOD I voted for Bob Barr in 08 and NOT McShame. What a douchebag.

    I still can’t believe that I volunteered for that douche bag’s presidential run.

    I wonder if the 89,304,000 NOT WORKING according to the DRUDGE REPORT agree w/ Senator John McCain ~jack

  5. Clingtomyguns says:

    Fitting for the loser:

    He, Gramnesty, Romney and other RINO’s should be aborted. They may be nicer men than the Godless Demonrats, but in their own flirtation with socialism and trying to be “moderate”, they don’t provide leadership or inspiration, and have definitely perfected the art of twice losing against a communist community organizer.

    America is ready to return to the likes of statesmen like Reagan (Republicans haven’t run one since 1988), and throw out the elitist Washington trash, and right now the young patriots Paul, Cruz and Amash represent our best hope.

  6. Sgt Brock e Lee says:

    I’ve always been troubled by McCains behavior with regards to normalization of relations with Vietnam and the MIA issues. I’m not convinced that he is he who claims he is. Too many questions about his treatment as a POW and his actions after release. Here’s a good article on it.

  7. Skyfall says:


    Wacko-birds, eh Senator? With God’s help, we’ll “wacko” you stinking, traitorous, two-faced progs-in-sheeps-clothing vermin next election.

    You have outed yourselves totally now. You HATE people who LOVE the Constitution. That’s all we want…a return to our Constitutional Republic. If you were who you pretend to be, you’d be right there with us.

    No…you are slime. Treacherous. You MEAN US HARM.

    We may be wacko-birds…but you have disgraces yourself and become the enemy.

    Never again, McLoser. Never again.

    PS Can I withdraw that wasted vote for you in ’08?

  8. Clint Beastwood says:

    I don’t even understand how McCain can take himself seriously, much less bash true conservatives that actually represent their constituents, which seems to be foreign territory for McCain.

    Cruz has done more to beat back the libtards in 2 months than McCain has done his entire tenure.

    After watching Cruz verbally slay Holder like a parent scolding a child, I’ve been fired up and optimistic for the future of Libertarians, if more men like Cruz, Paul and Amash will rise to the challenge of restoring America to the great Republic it once was.

    F U old man McCain. Not just lib college students think you should follow the Constitution.

  11. Gary C. says:

    Never trust a moderate! They’re gutless, spineless, and will always take the least controversial path. Since the so-called MSM defines what is and isn’t controversial, they will always bend in that direction: left. I’ve been saying this for years. We need, now more than ever, principled constitutional conservatives, not squishy faux-conservatives the likes of McCain, Graham, and far too many others.

  12. Sam says:

    Arizona provides for a recall of federal-level elected officials.

    I suggest we use that power.

  13. OldDawg says:

    Now you know why McCain was forced into the Repulsican nomination in ’08! The “behind the scene” plan has worked perfectly.

  14. Skyfall says:

    I never took that “behind the scenes”, puppet-master stuff too seriously. But now I’m finding it harder and harder to argue with the likes of OldDawg.

    By the way…I went on Ancestry dot com. It’s amazing but true: McCain is the lineal descendent of Judas Iscariot. Amazing…but not surprising.

    @Sgt Brock Lee, looks like you are not the only one thinking…..

    ” I think that we are just seeing that the Republican Party, just like the Dem Party, has been usurped from within. By Marxists. By Cohorts of The Regime. It is all right there out in front of our eyes, action after after action, and we just keep denying it. McCain, after all is a war hero. Well, back when he was running in 2008, during the primaries, NPR ran a blurp of a speech he had just given and he said, “Comrades…..” Well, you know how blupbs come on over and over in little news blasts? It came through again like that. So I called my husband to listen to the station on the way home from work. They blurb was changed to “Friends…….” I heard it, was not imagining things. He is and always has been a wolf in sheep’s clothing within the Republican Party. Now, a bunch of Republicans leaving the Senate floor to go do lunch with the Marxist-Usurper, instead of staying and hearing what ‘one of their own’ had to say, and our instincts put us into denial and we so badly want to believe they are still the good guys on the right team so the answer is something sinister like blackmail or threats to their families. But, ah, maybe we just need to open our eyes and see it for its simplicity. Whose side are they on? The Usurpers or The Americans? Americans would not, in the face of threats, say it was ok to kill Americans on American soil in non-imminent-threat situations without due-process and would an American would never, NEVER laugh at someone standing for the Constitution. The Republicans that went to dinner and abandoned the Senate Floor are now, just like the Dem Progressive, comfortable and confident to wear their true colors out in the open. The more they do, the more their following refuse to see it.”

    Good post. It would certainly explain why a warrior would side with liberals – he was tortured unmercifully by the commie gooks, that we know. What we don’t is the extent he was programmed during captivity by psychops, maybe with KGB assistance to subvert the country once he came back?

    “Kalugin stated that one of the POWs worked on by the KGB was a “high-ranking naval officer,” who, according to Kalugin, agreed to work with the Soviets upon his repatriation to the United States and has frequently appeared on U.S. television.”

    “Why, Sen. McCain, is there such a rush by you and others to do business with the same regime, which you, yourself, once called “degenerate” and whose leaders’ hands are dripping with the blood of captive, helpless Americans–your fellow POWs? Have the Vietnamese flipped you a Queen of Diamonds?”

    By all appearances, McCain is a tool, maybe unwittingly, but still a tool of the communist body. Obama, while not of the same grit as McCain to have survived communist torture, is likewise a tool, having been brought up a red diaper doper baby, community radical, and nurtured his whole life by communists.

    By any objective measure, the Communist Goals (1963) put into the Congressional Record–Appendix, pp. A34-A35 January 10, 1963 are well on their way to coming to pass or are completed. Just consider for example how these have been achieved:

    15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

    17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

    20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions.

    25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

    26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

    27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a “religious crutch.”

    28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”
    29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

    30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”

    32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture–education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.

    33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.

    34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.

    35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.

    36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.

    38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. [e.g., weaponizing the federal civillian executive department agencies] Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].

    39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals. [Wait for Obamacare on this – control of guns]

    40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

    44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.

    45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.

    What Rand Paul Did That Republicans Haven’t Done; What Romney Failed To Do – Upstaged the Liar:

    “Rand advanced his strategic goal. The entire filibuster episode portrayed a radically different image of Barack Obama. Even among low information voters, Obama’s public image just took a serious hit. Instead of being the cool guy who loves you, Obama is now the tyrant who reserves the right to kill you any time he feels like it. On an emotional level, Rand Paul undid in one day years of spin about Obama.”

    Then again, I’d do Jeff Flake. Interchangeable idiots, as it were.

    AZ is on the front lines, and may well be the last bastion of liberty, but you wouldn’t know it by the idiots that we elect. See: Raúl M. Grijalva, who was apparently elected by American citizens to represent ILLEGAL ALIENS. And WE pay for it. Prince to serf in two steps.

    My first thought was “which wife?”

    A man who doesn’t take his marital oath seriously can’t be expected to take his Oath of Office seriously either.

    BTW, nice of McCain and Grhamnasty to carry water for Obama. Dis you bus his table at the restaurant, too?
