Ron Paul Is Now Verboten at a Prominent Conservative Web Site, a conservative/Republican political blog, has banned any mention of Ron Paul from users with accounts younger than six months old. John Cole, a former Red State contributor, criticized the move on his own personal ""; "Everyone else with an account that old stopped reading them or reads them now only to giggle and mock. The remainder of the folks who have tried to post at Red State got banned within a week of forming their account for 'trolling,' which is loosely defined as saying anything about Bush or Republicans that would not make it onto the front page of a knob-slobbering, Bush-worshipping Hugh Hewitt post."

Note: John Cole is a conservative "apostate" who abandoned Red State and the Republican Party after he realized they'd both been taken over by radical rightwing lunatics. A screen cap of RedState's Ron Paul ban is posted below.
