Jon Huntsman destroys Ron Paul in 60 seconds over his racist newsletters in New Hampshire. I love the music - so ominous! 

Huntsman is polling higher than before, but is still polling fourth in New Hampshire. I’m curious if bringing the claws out might help that. Current averaged national polling:

  • Newt Gingrich: 27.2%
  • Mitt Romney: 25.4% 
  • Ron Paul: 12.2%
  • Rick Perry: 6.6%
  • Michele Bachmann: 6.2%
  • Rick Santorum: 3.8%
  • Jon Huntsman: 2.0%

Oh, and progressives shouldn’t forget something very important: Ron Paul is not all legal weed and no war. Click for why he’d be a disaster.

Jon Huntsman is still the grownup in the room. I’ll give him an award for classiest attack ad of Election 2012 - thus far.

Is this the final nail in the coffin?

Of course not. Ron Paul fanboys will keep dismissing his racism long after he’s dead.

"Libertarians are incapable of being a racist because racism is a collect assigned idea - you see people in group. A civil Libertarian like myself sees everyone as an important individual. “It’s not the color of their skin that’s important” as Martin Luther King said. What is important is the character of the individual. You know what is really interesting, though, because this might be behind this, because I, as a Republican candidate am probably getting the most number of Black voters and Black supporters."

Is he serious?

Ron Paul (Source)

NO these are NOT from those Ron Paul Newsletters, these are from his book “Freedom Under Siege,” so nobody can claim that it was a ghost-writer this time.

According to him: Gays get AIDS because they are involved in a gay lifestyle, and sexually harassed women should be held responsible for being sexually harassed. Flawless republican logic…

Why do people like him?!?! He is such a douchebag.

"The average homosexual has 1,000 or more partners in a lifetime, and the average homosexual has only one sexual encounter per partner and never sees the person again after that encounter."

News Bulletin: Ron Paul Is (NOT) a Huge Racist

stfuconfederates:

prettayprettaygood:

Long story short, Ron Paul oversaw (in some sort of unclarified capacity) a newsletter which sometimes printed racist, homophobic, and paranoid articles. Paul has repeatedly denied that he wrote any of the offending articles and that he never approved any of them for publication. 

I find it bizarre that anyone could believe Paul to be so duplicitous as to say terribly racist things in print but never say them publicly. I refuse to believe that a man whose entire career has been defined by consistency and honesty would allow his secret racism to appear only in a newsletter and never anywhere else. This is a dumb hatchet job that periodically appears whenever Paul receives increased media coverage. It’s easy to criticize his policies so why stoop to this level? 

Honesty and consistency? Sorry, but honest and consistent people don’t allow material to be published in their name without reading it first. I refuse to believe that any intelligent person would let that happen, especially a public figure. Even if that were the case, surely Mr. Paul would be able to identify the author of the documents, because if Mr. Paul “oversaw” the newsletter, then the author of the newsletter must’ve been his subordinate, or empowered in some way by Mr. Paul.

What is this position Ron Paul held over the newsletter? Why won’t he clarify that? How can he claim to just oversee a newsletter, but never read or approved any of the material that appeared in it? It doesn’t make any sense whatsoever.

This is what I mean, white people. Pointing out that a white person is racist and has skewed ideas about race because ze is white is NOT RACIST. It’s pointing out an immutable fact.

i seriously cannot imagine what a conversation between a libertarian and a socialist sounds like where the libertarian is trying to convince the socialist that RON PAUL is the best chance for socialism in america.

‘hey, you know how we both think that legalizing weed and defunding the military are important? well guess what? ron paul is your guy. he’s a DOCTOR who believes in intelligent design. he actually believes your kidneys were made by god. he also wants to privatize roads, privatize schools, make sure all healthcare is private, eliminate government aid for underprivileged students like pell grants and make sure all college loans are private, make sure all other aid from the government is taken away because poor people are subhuman, implement the sanctity of life act and strip women of their rights, destroy NPR and PBS, implement divisive anti-immigration laws that are more ridiculous than sharron angle’s arizona bill, abolish the minimum wage, repeal the civil rights act of 1964, AND he’ll make sure there is no EPA, FDA, or OSHA so that when children who can’t afford their education go to work in a factory for 12 cents an hour because the minimum wage has been abolished and their arm gets ripped off by an unsafe piece of equipment, they have no recourse and their lives are ruined because they will have no healthcare and no education. DOESN’T THIS SOUND LIKE THE SOCIALIST UTOPIA?

if i had to listen to 4 days of that shit, and i wasn’t such an asshole, i would be like, ‘yeah sure, ok, can we play nintendo now?’ but i am an asshole, and if someone was buzzing in my ear trying to convert me to the church of ron paul, i would probably have to tell that person how much of a fuckwad ron paul is and then how much of a fuckwad they are. 

Ron Paul would be the best candidate for a Socialist to vote for… If they were a revolutionary Socialist with an interest in destabilizing and discrediting the current system…
