According to one eyewitness, Giuliani was beset by dozens of Paul enthusiasts as he was leaving the island, some of whom shouted taunts about 9/11, including: “9/11 was an inside job” and “Rudy, Rudy, what did you do with the gold?” — an apparent reference to rumors about $200 million in gold alleged to have disappeared in the collapse of the World Trade Center towers.
Ed Wyszynski, a longtime party activist from Eagle, said the Paul supporters threatened to throw Giuliani overboard and harrassed him as he took shelter in the ferry’s pilothouse for the 15-minute journey back to Mackinaw City.
“It was awful,” said Wyszynski, who supports Mitt Romney for the GOP presidential nomination.
“I was embarrassed to be a Republican. Never, ever, have I seen such a disgraceful performance.”
This, by the way, is why we call Ron Paul supporters MoRons.
