Right. Removing it quickly just shows a belated attempt at damage control. It does not show that they aren't racist (and/or happy to employ racists).

If he/they/made-up excuse was not racist he would not post it in the first fucking place.

I did not post about a Dumbass immediately fired from the Detroit Tigers who called a club house attendant "spider monkey," refused to apologize, then entered into spin and lies that would embarrass Putin. The bottom line is it is clear he is an unrepentant racist, players and staff agreed, his got shit-canned. You probably did not hear about him because no one cares about the Tigers this year and there is no way to present "his side" as a "misunderstanding" or even "t3h SJW CENSORSHIPZ OUR CHILDREN."

He is a racist.

As is Ron Paul.

I don't get "hung up" on it either.

But I do reserve the right to call racist trash "racist trash". Especially when there is a history of racist trashiness, as in Ron Paul's case.

Actually join the Klan?

Seriously, fuck Ron Paul.

He's not dick to me. I'm sure his tenure of institutional racism is now over with this tweet.

Mission accomplished?

of course. Does anyone have a list of racist legislation he got through that needs to be repealed?

Nobody (except for you) is claiming that this affects anything except our opinion of Ron Paul

Him being incompetent at legislating his racism is a poor defense.

The attempts to explain away Paul's long, long, history of racism reminds me of:

Seems like if he'd kept a firm hand over his staff, he wouldn't be looking like a dick.

As needlessly self inflicted a wound as Her emails.

Came across the original, in case anyone gives a poop. Only subtly, rather than blatantly, racist

I would say it's not racist at all, just regular communist propaganda "Workers of the world unite!"

Still implying that non whites want to destroy the country

Though Gram’s interpretation is plausible too, I suppose
