Yes...the only "racist" running is the one who wants to attack policies that disproportionately affect minorities (war on drugs,
prison-industrial complex, constant war which is fed by armies primarily drawing minority enlistments & the otherwise poor or disenfranchised, not
bombing brown people for no valid reason, etc.), is defended as NOT being racist by the (black) head of the Houston NAACP, and espouses looking at &
treating people as individuals and not groups.
*rolls eyes* Riiiiiiiight...
Here's a kicker for you - taken in context (as analyzed by Justin Raimondo - you can look it up), the newsletters weren't actually all that racist in
the first place, but regardless, Paul didn't write them (as verified by analysis) and likely wasn't even aware of them as he wasn't even IN politics
at the time as he had returned to his full-time OBGYN practice. That being said, Paul has ALREADY acknowledged his moral responsibility for them.
And oh, what a bigot and anti-semite he is, having had a gay campaign director last time around, and a jewish campaign advisor this time. Can this
knuckle-headed garbage PLEASE go away now? Yes, some newsletters having absolutely NOTHING to do with Paul's actual policies, views, or on-the-record
history were unfortunately written under the Paul brand. And yes, Paul disagrees with ANYTHING that says the government has a right to tell you what
to do with your property, even if that gives you an option to be stupid and archaic.
How about we focus on things that actually matter, like dying civilians, disenfranchised minorities, a nation on the verge of fiscal collapse, an
intrusive and abusive government, and all of the other things I don't have time to write at the moment?
If anyone wants to get really carried away with the race issue, we might as well get on with it. Santorum and Bachmann are racist and bigoted because
they don't like & want to limit the rights of gays. They're racist because they support our prison policies, drug war, and foreign policy which have
caused indiscriminate harm to various other races. Perry's a racist because of Camp Niggerhead (that's a proper term). Huntsman and Romney are both
racists because they're mormon (look into what the Latter-Day Saints have said about various other races in the past). Gingrich is racist because of
the policies he supports as well - and he's also a philanderer.
Does anyone see how dumb this is yet? No, I don't really think any of these people are honestly racist, but they support all sorts of policies which
hurt other races directly, and some (prohibition) that were founded directly IN racism. Dumb, dumb, dumb...and if anyone here wants to tell me that
ALL donors of ALL other candidates have been vetted and shown not to contain any bigots, racists, or various others typically perceived in a negative
fashion, I'll eat my hat.
