He could been a contender.

Guess he got tired of hinting that he was a racist and went full on

And given the content of his old newsletters this should surprise exactly no one

The caricatures are racist but the identity politics of cultural Marxism will destroy the country if allowed to flourish.

All sorts of things pop into my head. The main one is that the image they inserted itself is a fake from /pol . So some idjit staffer did a google image search for cultural marxism, used a 4chan image, and didn't bother checking for reuse rights, to see if it was a troll (it is), and didn't recognize the racial stereotype images in it.

I'd say that staffer pretty much showed they don't have the qualifications to be near a social media account.

Isn't that the same excuse he used for his old newsletters?

Yes it is.

Funny how that keeps happening to him, isn't it?

Well if it's fashionable to think that Ron Paul actually manages his own twitter so that you can rehash shit from decades ago, I'll jump on the lazy mental bandwagon too.

Don't know about "TYPICAL LIBERTOONIAN" but it certainly seems to be "Typical Ron Paul"

Kind of. The newsletter was when he let some racists publish an article, this one is he is employing racist to manage his account.

I don't think he personally manages his Twitter. I do think that over the decades, his staff have repeatedly printed/posted racist content. Which leads me to believe, he is happy with a certain office culture (or "kultur" in the original german).

I'll say the same thing as about the newsletters, it shows one of two things.

1) He is a racist

or

2) He either doesn't pay attention or doesn't give a shit if racists slap his name on their racist garbage. In which case he is an idiot (at best).

I will gladly entertain either idea as true. Or even both.

And for argument sake, lets say its #2 and he is being 100% honest both in this case and about the newsletters. If that's the case, he is an even bigger idiot than the first time because this has happened to him before.

Too many years ago--2004 specifically--I was visiting a friend who thinks Pelosi is sexy for being a liberal. He had a friend who was a raving Pauloid trying to convince us to support him. I responded that I cannot vote for such a blatant racist.

In the Credit Where Credit is Due Department, I opened my Gram's Mom's Dil Macbook Pro, searched this very section for a Dipshit's thread on Paul's "curious habit."

The poor guy decompensated. He ended up phoning a friend in Paul's campaign to try to help him. He, then they, tried the "he didn't write that!"

Under his name. For years. Would we excuse a Clinton or Bush if they had such a "newsletter?"

"IT OUT CONTEXT."

Really? Here is the full context.

No no no, just because he had them delete the tweet for being offensive and apologize immediately doesn't mean I can't harp on this shit for years.

This means all sorts of things. There is a lot of deeper meaning we can read into this.

After all, remember all that racist stuff he did as a congressman and all that racist legislation he proposed?

The fact that it continues to happen to Ron Paul means he either doesn't care or supports these kinds of opinions.

ETA: I suppose I jumped a gun a bit because I though of a 3rd option which is incompetence: Ron Paul is unable to manage his staff.

The news letter thing from decades ago and a single tweet today that was soon removed are definitely part of the same systemic problem.

We in the peanut gallery definitely are in-the-know.

Exactly. Or if they made this exact Tweet. Even if they removed it immediately

How many "hits" would it take for it to be a systemic problem?
