Ron come on bud, for once it seemed we were on level with many of the current issues and then you had to go do this:


Former Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) on Monday tweeted, then deleted, a racist cartoon depicting minorities with exaggerated features punching Uncle Sam.

The cartoon features a Jewish man with a hooked nose, a black man with exaggerated lips, an Asian man with slanted eyes and a man who looks like a neanderthal punching Uncle Sam and yelling “Cultural Marxism!”

“Are you stunned by what has become of American culture?” Paul said in the tweet. “Well, it’s not an accident. You’ve probably heard of ‘cultural Marxism,’ but do you know what it means?”

Paul later on Monday said a staff member had posted the cartoon.

Here's the cartoon posted:


Of course Ron blames a 'staff member' for posting the cartoon. Gosh he just seems to have a bad run in with people taking on his identity and posting racist things under his name ya know? Many of you may be aware of Ron's history and the various allegations mounted against him of racism. There were the revelations of the racist newsletters baring his name which Ron blamed on a ghost writer he hired, the ghost writer yet to be identified to this day. then there are his associations with various white nationalist groups and the support he'd garnered from them over the years.... support of which he's lost considerably to Trump and other GOP candidates given he's out of the whitehouse game. Maybe that explains this cartoon? Maybe?

A number of observations on what Ron posted... firstly the flag of communism? Are we still in the cold war? What's the deal with the individuals depicted? I didn't know the Chinese were taking over? Jews, blacks and hispanics? Not good at all.

Ron reminds me of my dear old uncle..... I mean I love him but he's clearly out of his generation. I'd often tell him to take a nap when he gets off his rockers..... maybe Ron should do the same?

Who said anything about book burning? That's an incredible attempt on your part to excuse what Ron posted.

Hmmm, I wonder who created this climate, where all this racism and hatred are acceptable?
Isn't it all so... grotesque, but oddly endorsed by a certain group of people.

Going back in time..................

He's right. No excuses. Anytime someone brings this stuff up they are accused of racism by the left. It's their knee-jerk response to any criticism that goes against the politically correct fiction that everyone really wants peace and harmony when they actually wish us harm. Jesus H Christ yourself.

I don't see how this is racist? Does truth equal racism now? When does the book burning start, we don't want to keep anything that looks or feels racist even if it factually occurred in history.

The route these people are going just keeps getting worse by the day.

Truth is the new counter culture apparently.

Race baiter's. That's who.

Of course it's social acceptable to be bigoted against republicans,rich people,gun owners, corporations, and ceo's.

They drew an imaginary line in the sand with it comes to a manufactured group that can change their address to anywhere in the world, and be called another 'race'.

Aww, I wish I could at least say "nice try", but sadly, it can't be done.

Maybe you can try again later, when your brain fog clears up

Obama can start it by lighting up his library, followed by the Clintons. It's the next step after taking hammers to all their Blackberries.

Is this point on-topic, or off topic? How does it apply to this thread topic?

And more importantly, where is DTOM?

If you recognize ethnic stereotypes in that cartoon you must have a racist mind.
Otherwise you would just see people instead of intent.
