So the way I stumbled on this was basically that I saw somebody share the following cartoon on Twitter:



Garrison is a wingnut zealot but I don't know that I've ever seen him be an overt racist before. So I reverse image searched the cartoon and found out that that it was making the rounds because Ron Paul tweeted it out earlier this afternoon. (I went ahead and marked it up to show that Garrison's name had been added).



There's a lot of Ron Paul fans around here or at least there were in the past. My own wife was something of a Paul supporter. Now as many of you will remember, in the past, stuff came out about racist # in Ron Paul's newsletters. A lot of his fans adopted a mantra about how Paul himself really had little to do with the newsletters.

That is part and parcel of the smokescreen of denial of the intersection of far-right politics and racism wafted by many on the Right. Self-aggrieved "real victims" on the Right often screech loudly that they're unfairly painted as being associated with racists. It's not a legitimate connection to make, they argue, when Trump retweets racist propaganda. It's an unfair smear, they say, when Rep. Steve King retweets well known racists.

Time and time again, some people always find themselves contorting into pretzels, trying to find a view of the world that obscures fundamental reality.

Here's the real #. It's not a coincidence that the further right you look, the more stuff like this you'll find. Unwitting or not, parrots who flit to and fro repeating "Cultural Marxism! Cultural Marxism! Cultural Marxism!" are ultimately fellow travelers alongside white nationalists, neo-Nazis and the like. It's not a freak accident when their orbits overlap. It's the result of orbiting in close proximity around the same putrid frothy regressive sucking dog whistling hole.

If you flirt with these bigoted clowns long enough, you'll get screwed every time.

Yea. That's the thing with Ron Paul. He sounds sane about 65% of the time. Think about the conflicting messaging from Ron Paul.

On the one hand, you've got a video of him acknowledging the reality of systemic racism and the War on Drugs but on the other, he's blabbering about "cultural Marxism" and the plot to undermine Western culture — a plot that others blabbering about "cultural Marxism" will claim includes any discussion of ("made up") systemic racism.

That's what kills me. He was so common sense and straight forward about issues.


My favorite is abolishing the IRS and federal income tax, then replacing with a consumption tax on goods.

Pay what you use/consume. Eliminate free rides and getting taxed on what you don't use.

Sure. It's just a harmless comic picturing the Zeitgeist with a 50ies_esque style, which only coincidentally appeals to McCarthyism due to it's UdSSR symbolism.

Sure. That must be the case here, clearly.

My sources tell me that ABC just saw the tweet and immediately fired Roseanne.

Again.

It's pretty obvious we need to organize a march.

He says it was a staffer. Like Ron is dumb enough to post such a thing. Probably some Two Party plant.

We should stop Sarah Sanders from eating out in public again.
