CNN talking head John King and his panelists RedState.com's conservative managing editor, blogger, and pundit Erick Erickson (who joined King's show as a CNN political contributor this year, by the way) and the network's liberal political contributor and syndicated columnist Roland Martin smeared Ron Paul over for his support for WikiLeaks. Paul tweeted his comments on the WikiLeaks matter, stating:
Re: Wikileaks- In a free society, we are supposed to know the truth. In a society where truth becomes treason, we are in big trouble.

Here's the video of the slam against Paul by the state-worshiping shills on King's show:
Listen to Erickson as he calls Paul a "nut" for sticking up for free speech and the truth. He also quips: "I believe [Paul] actually starred in a cartoon a while back as Marvin the Martian."
While you're at it, listen to Martin who sneers at Paul with these glib and slimy comments: "You know what? Being a native Texan, it's little hard somtimes for me to realize that Ron Paul is also a Texan."
Martin then grumbles:
I mean, what's the...? First of all, first of all...but here's the whole, here's the whole deal for, for, for Ron Paul. The members of the House on Intelligence Committee....they learn about things that are secret, and we don't know about. So, what is he, what is he saying? They should talk about those things? Come on, Congressman!
When King points out that, in reference to Paul and his supporters as well as everyone in the Liberty movement, "a lot of people who watch, who tweet, who follow, who email" what the two panelists (dingbats, as I call them!) say on TV will result in the network's inbox getting "higher and higher," Erickson says that he would have to change his phone number, while Martin says, "If you email me, I will email you back. So you go right ahead."
Memo to Martin: We'll be sure to do just that.
The height of hubris, vanity, and the self-aggrandizing and self-serving mindset from these apologists is just mind-numbing and putrid but not a surprise to all of us in the movement.
Good job, Ron Paul! More kudos to him! Hisses to the statists who want to destroy WL at all costs.
