I have uncovered some shocking information that needs to be shared with the voters of America. Ron Paul supporters appear to be plotting a massive, nationwide campaign to spam America’s food banks. Despite absolutely NO EVIDENCE that food banks have specifically asked Paul supporters to donate food, his supporters are hatching a plot to bring hundreds, perhaps even thousands of pounds of food to America’s food banks. This is spamming, plain and simple. It could even be a sinister attempt to crush our nations fragile food bank system.
Most of us have heard of spam in regards to e-mail and the internet. But in it’s loosest definition it means to send something to another person or group that is unsolicited and unrequested. Paul supporters have taken criticism in the past for spamming various parts of the internet with their pro-Paul messages but now their efforts may be getting even more nefarious, targeting not bloggers, but volunteers and hard-working social workers at America’s food banks.
Ron Paul supporters already made news, with their spamming of food banks in South Carolina over the summer, but now they are plotting to go after food banks all over the country. How do I know? On the Ron Paul Meet-Up board, a supporter is asking all Ron Paul Meet-Up’s to conduct a food drive for Halloween. Not only that, there have already been reports of unsolicited food drives in New Hampshire. The goal: spam food banks with hundreds of pounds of food that they weren’t expecting and didn’t ask Paul supporters to give.
This news would be less worrisome if it was just a few rogue Paul supporters spamming food banks on their own time, but Three Q blog reports that at a Ron Paul event in New Hampshire, Ron Paul’s OWN CAMPAIGN MANAGER encouraged attendees of a rally to donate to a food drive, presumably so the campaign could then use that food to spam food banks!
Ladies and gentlemen, we now have evidence of members of the Paul campaign, at the highest levels, openly ENCOURAGING spamming. It’s one thing to spam the internet, where pro-Paul messages can be easily ignored, but when Paul supporters start spamming America’s food banks, it’s time to say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
