Welcome to the Republican Party, Mr. Paul.
Republicans always get targeted unfairly by the media.
As soon as he inevitably fades away, so will the scrutiny.

I'm not saying Ron Paul is racist (or not racist) but the examples in the OP are just lame.
How this got so much attention is ridiculous.
A racist doctor wouldn't treat black patients??
Of course he would, he'd be struck off if he didn't and his career would be over.
Someone can be racist and still treat patients, serve black people in a bar, hell even do business with black people and many other things too....
Would a black person come out in defence or Ron Paul??
Again yes they would.
We had a Football manager here (UK) called Ron Atkinson.... who when he thought he was "off-mic" said the following
"He's what is known in some schools as a f*cking lazy thick n*gger"
Now this manager had given many black players a chance and championed black players back when there were still racial tensions going on and so on..
Carlton Palmer, A black player who had played for Atkinson said this:
"I'm black and I'm sitting here and I'm gonna stand up for Big Ron not because he's a friend of mine, I'm standing up for him because I know what he's like as a bloke."
One can hold disgusting views and be racist, sexist, homophobic and whatever else... but they still have to live in the world, and if they have a high profile career, they certainly can't be seen to be saying things like that very often... it wrecks careers.
And funnily enough, people will always stand up for those they know... no matter what they've done.
So yes, the OP has been challenged.edit on 22/12/11 by blupblup because: (no reason given)

Its funny, the more the trolls attack, the more I learn about Ron Paul's career and the MORE I respect this guy for everything he does. He not only stares corruption straight in the eye on Capitol Hill, is a hell of an economist and medical doctor. but he's been such an advocate for personal responsibilities, mutually assured respect, the Constitution and of course, the black community. Ron has been right on foreign policy, finance, domestic issues, and practices what he preaches. What can't this guy do!?
lol @ the anti-Pauls, their methods have backfired (read: CIA's BLOWBACK, thanks Ron Paul) and made his support base even more stronger, educated and organized.
I'm loving this.edit on 22-12-2011 by eLPresidente because: (no reason given)
