Is Ron Paul a Closet Cultural Terrorist?

It is sometimes amazing what you find when you look into a Presidential Candidates cultural orientation. Here is a headline on Mr. Paul from this week.

"News Bulletin: Ron Paul Is a Huge Racist"

The article says,

"...Around four years ago, James Kirchick reported a lengthy story delving into Paul’s worldview. As Kirchick writes, Paul comes out of an intellectual tradition called “paleolibertarianism,” which is a version of libertarianism heavily tinged with far-right cultural views. The gist is that Paul is tied in deep and extensive ways to neo-Confederates..."

The bigoted past of Ron Paul.

If you are a critic of the Bush administration, chances are that, at some point over the past six months, Ron Paul has said something that appealed to you. Paul describes himself as a libertarian,
Most voters had never heard of Paul before he launched his quixotic bid for the Republican nomination. But the Texan has been active in politics for decades. And, long before he was the darling of antiwar activists on the left and right, Paul was in the newsletter business.
Paul’s newsletters have carried different titles over the years--Ron Paul’s Freedom Report, Ron Paul Political Report, The Ron Paul Survival Report--but they generally seem to have been published on a monthly basis since at least 1978.
a controversy dating to 1996, when Charles “Lefty” Morris, a Democrat running against Paul for a House seat, released excerpts stating that “opinion polls consistently show only about 5% of blacks have sensible political opinions,” that “if you have ever been robbed by a black teen-aged male, you know how unbelievably fleet-footed they can be,” and that black representative Barbara Jordan is “the archetypical half-educated victimologist” whose “race and sex protect her from criticism.”

Hetep and Respect, this footnote occurred to me.

What is more important then Ron Paul's Cultural Orientation is what the Repub's Presidential candidates say about the Cultural Health of the Republican Party.

They have Rick, the "N" Word, Perry. They had Herman, I ain't no African American, Cain. They have Mit, Black's have been cursed by God Bible, Romney. And now we find out about Ron, paleolibertarianism, Perry. Wow

We already know Newt's cultural orientation as he is from the Pat Buchanan (Paleolibertarian leader), branch of the Republican Party.

If we now tie this to Republican anti-job, ACA, SS and Medicare behavior in congress, 2012 does not look good for Republicans among thinking Americans.
