Glenn Beck compares Ron Paul to Westboro Baptist, Lew Rockwell attacks Rand Paul

In an odd turn, the death of Chris Kyle, a popular Navy Seal turned author, has become just a backdrop to social media backbiting and comments full of hyperbole.

Glenn Beck’s tweet comparing Ron Paul to the Westboro Baptist protesters surely will stir the staunch Ron Paul supporters.

Paul made a slight adjustment to his tweet with condolences before turning the focus towards foreign policy.

While Paul’s insertion in the debate seemed odd and a bizarre take on Kyle’s death, the Westboro Baptists are blaming most military deaths on homosexuality in America. Beck’s hyperbole seems nearly as out of place as Paul presence in this Kyle discussion.

Meanwhile, Paul supporters felt necessary to contrast the former Texas Congressman from his son Rand Paul who posted: “Chris Kyle was a hero like all Americans who don the uniform to defend our country. Our prayers are with his family during this tragic time.”

Lew Rockwell writer Ryan McMaken felt it necessary to target the Kentucky Senator for saying “ALL AMERICANS” when discussing the heroism of our military personnel.

“Yes, every American soldier is a hero, just like the Bronze-Star-winning Timothy McVeigh and the Marine Lee Harvey Oswald. And don’t forget all the heroes at Mai Lai.”

Now Westboro Baptist will likely trump all of the grandiose statements with another “God Hates….” protest at Chris Kyle’s funeral.
