Ron Paul again (but no more, I swear)

The statement from Ron Paul's ex-assistant, Eric Dondero, speaks volumes even when Dondero tries to defend his ex-employer.

  • RP is in no way a racist, but “out of touch,” with both Hispanic and Black culture. Oh, and he is intolerant of Spanish and those who speak Spanish in his presence.
  • RP is in no way an anti-Semite, he just wants Israel to disappear. Oh, and he befriended Jews with the specific intent of winning their support for his campaign.
  • RP is not at all bigoted towards homosexuals. He just wouldn't use a toilet seat used by one previously (and he a physician, too!). Oh, and when a gay person came up to RP with his hand extended, RP swatted his hand away.
  • RP a paleo-conservative? No way, you must be out of your mind. That Lew Rockwell, a real dinosaur and a racist one to boot, is his buddy, is his private business. Of course. Oh, and "he strenuously does not believe the United States had any business getting involved in fighting Hitler in WWII. He expressed to me countless times, that “saving the Jews,” was absolutely none of our business." Sure thing, after all the only reason US got into the war was to save the Jews. And a lot of them were saved, of course.
But you know what? I agree with Dondero on this one:
If Ron Paul should be slammed for anything, it’s not some silly remarks he’s made in the past in his Newsletters. It’s over his simply outrageously horrendous views on foreign policy, Israel, and national security for the United States. His near No vote on Afghanistan. That is the big scandal. And that is what should be given 100 times more attention from the liberal media, than this Newsletter deal.
Just one correction: even his (granted, outrageous) views on Israel shouldn't be that high on the list of priorities. After all, we are talking here about what is good for US of A. It is simply that the more I learn about him, the more clear a picture of a total loon becomes.

And for a bit of comic (so called) relief:

Hmm Ron Paul is a piece of shit... To me that is like saying water is wet

Just let's not ask Paul whether water is wet. He will blame the Feds and the Zionists in that respect.

Yeah, NOT haphazardly bombing Muslims and invading their countries and treating Israel like a baby that can't take care of its own affairs is the "extremist" view. Propping up dictators and then sending young Americans to die toppling them when they stop acting like American puppets while the administration lies and says they're a danger to the US, yeah, THAT'S a good foreign policy.

Nothing like a pro-statist hack shilling for the establishment to get an article published.

From today's (Wednesday) lead editorial in The New  York Times; 
"Mr. Paul's Discredited Campaign", the last three paragraphs:

    "Mr. Paul has never given a full and detailed accounting of who wrote the newsletters and what his role was in overseeing their publication. It's especially important that he do so immediately. Those writings have certainly not been forgotten by white supremascist and militia groups that are promoting his candidacy in Iowa and New Hampshire.
    The Times reported on Sunday that dozens of members of the white nationalist Web site Stormfront are volunteering for the Paul campaign, along with far-right militias, survivalists and anti-Zionist groups. Don Black, the Stormfront director, said that his members were drawn to Mr. Paul by the newsletters and his positions against immigration and the Federal Reserve Bank (run by Jews, Mr. Black said), even if Mr. Paul were not himself a white         nationalist.
    Mr. Paul, saying he still hopes to "convert" these supporters to his views, has refused to disavov them or to chase them out of his campaign. If he does not do so, he wil leave a lasting stain on his candidacy, on the libertarian movement and, very possibly, on the Iowa caucuses."

RP became a lasting stain himself meanwhile.
