    I guess that is your way of saying that you don't have an intelligent explanation for Ron Paul's 30+ year history of bigotry and racism.

    Ron Paul voted AGAINST the MLK Holiday.

    Ron Paul voted AGAINST awarding Rosa Parks the Congressional Medal of Freedom.

    Ron Paul said he would have voted AGAINST the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

    Paul has a 30 year history of pandering to the KKK and White Power Movement.

    You can make all the LAME excuses for White Supremacist Ron Paul you want. His actions speak louder than words

    -FACT: Ron Paul's presidential campaign issued a flyer that boasted about the candidate's efforts to introduce legislation that would remove challenges to the anti-gay Defense of Marriage Act from the federal court system.
    http://www.joemygod.blogspot....

    -FACT: Ron Paul's Iowa state director is Mike Heath, a long-term Christian-right activist who formerly served as the board chairman of an SPLC-certified anti-gay hate group known as "Americans for Truth About Homosexuality."
    http://thenewcivilrightsmovem...

    -FACT: Ron Paul has a long history of racist, homophobic, and anti-Semitic comments.
    http://www.tnr.com/article/po...

    -FACT: As state above, Ron Paul supports the so-called "states' rights" approach to marriage, but interestingly, only for LGBT couples.

    -FACT: Ron Paul said, "If I were in Congress in 1996, I would have voted for the Defense of Marriage Act, which used Congress' constitutional authority to define what official state documents other states have to recognize under the Full Faith and Credit Clause, to ensure that no state would be forced to recognize a same-sex marriage license issued in another state."
    http://www.thepoliticalguide....

    -FACT: Ron Paul opposes the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), which would prohibit discrimination against employees on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity by civilian, nonreligious employers.

    From the CONSERVATIVE Washington Post:

    Ron Paul’s disqualifying racist newsletters

    I don’t even know where to begin, y’all. Rep. Ron Paul (R-Tex.) now sits atop the Republican field in the Iowa caucuses. He is the new flavor of the month, the new “Anybody but Mitt Romney” pageant winner and the latest front-runner who should be disqualified out of hand as a candidate for president of the United States.

    Until now, we had no reason to pay too much attention to the Gold Standard-lovin’-war-hatin’ crazy uncle of the Republican field. But now that it looks like he could actually win the Hawkeye State contest (and possibly render it irrelevant from that day forward), previously known things are coming to light. And they’re ugly.

    In the 1980s and early 1990s, Paul literally attached his name to newsletters that published vile, racist statements about African Americans. Some of the greatest hits were compiled by the Atlantic in “The Story Behind Ron Paul’s Racist Newsletters.”

    “Given the inefficiencies of what DC laughingly calls the criminal justice system, I think we can safely assume that 95 percent of the black males in that city are semi-criminal or entirely criminal.”
    “We are constantly told that it is evil to be afraid of black men, it is hardly irrational.”
    After the Los Angeles riot...

    “We are constantly told that it is evil to be afraid of black men, it is hardly irrational.”
    After the Los Angeles riots, one article in a newsletter claimed, “Order was only restored in L.A. when it came time for the blacks to pick up their welfare checks.”
    And the magazine provides a link to a 1996 Dallas Morning News story with this choice Paul quote. “If you have ever been robbed by a black teenaged male, you know how unbelievably fleet of foot they can be.”

    As my dear friend Ryan would say, “Wow. Just wow.”

    Kudos to Gloria Borger of CNN for trying to hold the cranky congressman accountable yesterday. When she asked whether he objected to racist statements being published under his name, Paul said, “Why don’t you go back and look at what I said yesterday on CNN and what I’ve said for 20 something years. 22 years ago? I didn’t write them, I disavow them, That’s it.” He complained that people have been “pestering” him for 20 years about the newsletters with his name on them, which he insists he never wrote, never read and now disavows. But Borger persisted — to the point that Paul pulled off his mike and skedaddled.

    Paul can run but he can’t hide. And as the old Teddy Pendergrass song goes, “You can’t hide from yourself/everywhere you go/there you are.”

    The Republican Party has a serious problem. It is mired with candidates who either could win the nomination but deservedly flame out in the general election or could possibly win the general election but not get the nomination because they’re rational or have no corrosive race issues smoldering somewhere. Previous flavors-of-the-month — Newt Gingrich, Rick Perry and Herman Cain — had no business running for president, given their disqualifying baggage.

    The Conservative WASHINGTON POST Exposes Ron Paul as a LIAR.

    THE PINOCCHIO TEST

    Paul offers implausible explanations for why so many derogatory statements made it into his publications, insisting he knew nothing about them. It’s hard to believe that a man who wants to oversee the entire U.S. government — albeit a smaller version — would provide zero oversight of his publications, or even bother to read them from time to time.
    The Texas congressman has to take responsibility for the newsletters that bear his name, or at least acknowledge negligence as the former head of the company that produced them. He earns three Pinocchios for failing to do so.

    The Washington Post is a liberal rag, nowhere near conservative. If you want a "conservative paper", read the Washington Times. Frankly, I'd prefer a libertarian paper, but there are far too few of those.

    The evolution of the word 'tea bagger'

    Tea Party activists are outraged by the revelation that Obama once used the term "tea baggers" to describe them. But the coinage wasn't always considered an insult...
    POSTED ON MAY 5, 2010, AT 3:21 PM

    Was President Obama speaking derogatively when he referred to the Tea Party as "tea baggers"? That's the topic of some debate after a review of Jonathan Alter's book, The Promise: President Obama, Year One, revealed that Obama used the term in November 2009. The grassroots movement didn't always consider "tea bagger" a slur: Early Tea Partiers innocently embraced the term until they discovered its vulgar connotations (see also the 1998 John Waters movie Pecker). In a twist, some conservatives have recently advocated that the word be reclaimed. Here's a look at the evolution of the insult:

    Feb. 27, 2009
    At the first anti-stimulus "New American Tea Party" rally in Washington D.C., a protestor carries a sign reading "Tea Bag the Liberal Dems before they Tea Bag You!!" The Washington Independent's David Weigel calls it "the best sign I saw."

    March 2

    At the first anti-stimulus "New American Tea Party" rally in Washington D.C., a protestor carries a sign reading "Tea Bag the Liberal Dems before they Tea Bag You!!" The Washington Independent's David Weigel calls it "the best sign I saw."

    March 2
    Americans for Prosperity, an anti-tax group, is one of the first Tea Party organizations to advocate sending tea bags to elected officials to protest the stimulus package. Several other lobby groups follow suit.

    April 1
    Several Tea Party protest sites encourage readers to "Tea bag the fools in DC." Jay Nordlinger at National Review Online later admits: "Conservatives started [using the term]... but others ran and ran with it."

    April 9
    Rachel Maddow is the first to mock the Tea Party's use of the phrase on her left-leaning MSNBC show. "Even Governor Mark Sanford of South Carolina is getting in on the hot tea-bagging action," she says, stifling laughter. (Watch Rachel Maddow joke about the "tea baggers")

    April 13
    David Shuster, filling in for liberal commentator Keith Olbermann on MSNBC, also makes fun of the phrase. "While the parties are officially toothless, the tea-baggers are full-throated about their goals," he says. Jeff Poor at the Business and Media Insitute says that the MSNBC comments are "lost in juvenile criticism and ignoring the reason there is discontent from the conservative base"

    April 14
    Anderson Cooper, on his avowedly non-partisan CNN show, makes a similar crack, but later back-pedals, calling his remark a "stupid, silly, one-line aside" that was not meant to "disparage legitimate protests."

    September 10
    Badges with the message "Proud to be a Tea Bagger" are still on sale at Tea Party events, according to an article written later in the year.

    November 10
    A report in The New York Times claims the President called Tea Partiers "the teabag, anti-government people" prompting the blog Redstate to respond: "Sexual innuendo is inappropriate in political discourse. The Left and their media tools need a soap bar sandwich to clean up their act."

    December 7
    In an article for National Review Online, Jay Nordlinger notes that the word is being used so regularly, it is beginning to lose its pejorative association. "'Tory' and 'Whig' were put-downs when they originated," he notes, and "'Yankee Doodle' was none too nice." However, he suggests conservatives should continue to oppose the "lowdown term."

    April 14, 2010
    Prominent conservative Andrew Breitbart posts a video on the site Big Government in an attempt to reclaim the term. "I'm Proud to be a Tea Bagger" currently has over 90,000 views.

    May 4
    In his book, Alter quotes Obama saying that GOP opposition to the stimulus package "helped to create the tea-baggers." Grover Norquist, president of the Americans for Tax Reform group, compares it to the pejorative use of the N-word.

    Ron Paul voted AGAINST the MLK Holiday.

    Ron Paul voted AGAINST awarding Rosa Parks the Congressional Medal of Freedom.

    Ron Paul said he would have voted AGAINST the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

    Paul has a 30 year history of pandering to the KKK and White Power Movement.

    You can make all the LAME excuses for White Supremacist Ron Paul you want. His actions speak louder than words

    NOW ON TO ROSA PARKS:

    First, congressional gold medals have been handed out since even before the constitution, and there's no historical record suggesting that the founding fathers deemed them to be an unconstitutional expenditure. The first one was awarded to George Washington, in 1776. Second, the medal wasn't being funded by tax dollars, it was funded through the sale of bronze replicas, which Ron Paul would have known if he had actually had actually read the bill. If Ron Paul wanted to chip in his own money rather than charging the tax payers, then he could have done so, by purchasing a replica. Is there any evidence that he actually did? I guess words speak louder than actions. Third, Ron Paul claims that the medal went against everything that Rosa Parks believed in. But Rosa Parks was still alive at the time, so why not just ask her how she felt about it? What makes Ron Paul think that he has the au...

    At the very worst, Ron Paul is a blatant racist. At the very least, Ron is too incompetent to actually read a bill before he makes a speech against it.

    http://www.dailykos.com/story...

    The Civil Rights Act repealed the notorious Jim Crow laws; forced schools, bathrooms and buses to desegregate; and banned employment discrimination. Although Paul was not around to weigh in on the landmark legislation at the time, he had the chance to cast a symbolic vote against it in 2004, when the House of Representatives took up a resolution "recognizing and honoring the 40th anniversary of congressional passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964." Paul was the only member who voted "no."
