Kentucky Senator Rand Paul is causing no shortage of outrage on Twitter as he applauded the death of The Weekly Standard, hailing the magazine as being run by “fake conservatives.”
Red State reports:
Paul was responding to an article written at American Greatness which also celebrated the death of the publication created by Bill Kristol. The author of the article described The Weekly Standard’s demise as a symbol of the death of a Bush style of conservatism and the rise of “American conservatism.”
The Weekly Standard, just like its founder, was famously pro-war and pushed Republicans for the Iraq War during George W. Bush’s time as President. Of course, being pro-war is not a good way to get on Paul’s libertarian side.
“Good riddance to the fake conservatives and warmongers,”tweeted Paul.
