On this day, let's give a standing ovation to Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) for speaking out against the sunshine patriots who play the politics of hate to play on the fear of terror.""

If I were an all-out supporter of Ron Paul, I would nominate him for the Nobel Peace Prize. Of course, as Paul has now said, those who spread the lie that it was all Muslims throughout the world who attacked America on that September morning are also those who seem to favor the most wars in the most places, usually so long as other Americans fight them.""

Ron Paul's criticism of those who exploit the pain of the great terrorist attack to foment the latest form of the politics of hate is a profile in courage and is an example of patriotism of the highest order."

Most opponents of the Muslim center in New York are good people with genuine concerns who in many cases make valid points. Reasonable people can support or oppose this particular project in this particular place." However, there are political exploiters, Newt Gingrich being one, a Republican politician in New York who Hillary Clinton obliterated when she ran against him for the Senate being another, who are playing the politics of hate.""

Anyone who equates all Muslims with al Qaeda is playing the politics of hate using the weapons of bigotry and fear. Ron Paul is right when he attacks the "sunshine patriots" who wrap themselves around the flag of liberty when it is easy but exploit the politics of hate and fear when it is hard.""

So, on this day, let's give a standing ovation to Ron Paul, a true patriot, who speaks truth to hate.
