A series of newsletters in the name of GOP presidential hopeful Ron Paul contain several racist remarks – including one that says order was restored to Los Angeles after the 1992 riots when blacks went “to pick up their welfare checks.”
CNN recently obtained the newsletters – written in the 1990s and one from the late 1980s – after a report was published about their existence in The New Republic.
Oops – not good Mr. Paul. Character matters.
The vast majority of voters have rejected Paul and his message, but for those who support Paul (or are considering it), the following questions must be answered regarding the views contained in his newsletter (Ron Paul Political Report) over a period of many years – this was not an isolated incident.
- If Paul wrote or endorses these views, he’s disqualified. No further discussion is needed.
- If you believe Paul didn’t write, know or endorse what his newsletter contained (for many years), is a man who can’t handle publishing a newsletter qualified to run the country?
- Is this the kind of character which should run the country?
Read the newsletter for yourself (or just Google “Ron Paul Political Report”), but be warned, much of it is nasty and indefensible stuff.
