Like father, like son. Sooner or later the real Paul will slip out.

Then there's no turning back even if his worshippers will try their hardest to excuse it.

The cartoon IS racist.

But Ron Paul didn't post it. One of his staffers did.  And when Ron Paul was made aware of it, he immediately ordered the offensive post removed, which was the right thing to do.

"Earlier today a staff member inadvertently posted an offensive cartoon on my social media. I do not make my own social media posts and when I discovered the mistake it was immediately deleted."
-Ron Paul

Thanks, Dink, for exposing RT's pathetic attempt to libel Dr. Paul. 

edit:  I never liked RT, either.

I would cut RT some slack and give them the benefit of the doubt, Sky.

The article could be due to the simple fact that RT gives Ron Paul a lot a coverage, positive coverage, while the US MSM gives him very little coverage, and only of the negative kind.

That makes sense Tom. I would add to that, Ron Paul is responsible for his staffers and this slipup at least tells us something about one (some) of his staffers.

Yes, RT is very supportive of Ron Paul and has interviewed him on their programs.

In fact, RT is very supportive of Trump and the Republican party right now because they see hope in peaceful relations with Trump and more of the same hate from the Democrats.

Unfortunately, commies still live under the beds of Americans like the Chief.

Ron Paul takes no responsibility for his racism. A number of years ago, he published materials that contained racist rants. When called on it, he said he didn't know about them and blamed his staff.

Well maybe... Are you saying he's as bad as Louis Farrakhan?

BTW, that sort of thing often catches out publishers, especially if they have other things to do that are also important to them.

Probably some "Young Progressive" infiltrated his publishing operation and planted some racist shit to try to discredit him while he was off working for individual liberty and equal application of the law.

Yes, I remember and I think your comment is being realistic. It really does look like both Ron and Rand have been caught promoting racism and they've tried to slip out of it by clever maneuvering. It's happened too many times now.

In any case, we need to give them both the benefit of the doubt on deniability, even though it's become repetitive.

Looks like?

That's what you want people to see, so you blow smoke in front of the mirrors.

Ron Paul has a team of staffers, some of whom are allowed to post as him. 

The racist "materials" you're referring to are probably the newsletters "he" allegedly wrote in 2008:


"When the newsletter controversy came up again during the 2008 campaign, Dr. Paul explained that he didn't actually write the newsletters but because they carried his name he was morally responsible for their content. Further, he didn't know exactly who wrote the offensive things and they didn't represent his views."
