Ron Paul's Rabidly Racist Writings

A Republican who is racist? Mon Dieu!! I am shocked!!! But seriously, you should be seated before reading the following sickening RACIST excerpt from a 1992 article in the Ron Paul Political Report:

Indeed, it is shocking to consider the uniformity of opinion among blacks in this country. Opinion polls consistently show that only about 5% of blacks have sensible political opinions, i.e. support the free market, individual liberty, and the end of welfare and affirmative action.... Given the inefficiencies of what D.C. laughingly calls the "criminal justice system," I think we can safely assume that 95% of the black males in that city are semi-criminal or entirely criminal.

If similar in-depth studies were conducted in other major cities, who doubts that similar results would be produced? We are constantly told that it is evil to be afraid of black men, but it is hardly irrational. Black men commit murders, rapes, robberies, muggings, and burglaries all out of proportion to their numbers.

Naturally, Paul's camp is spinning furiously. Kos reports that the Paulites claim Ron Paul didn't know exactly what was written in Ron Paul's 8 page newsletter. And Ron Paul didn't know exactly what was written under Ron Paul's very own byline. In other words, according to Ron Paul's camp, the GOP candidate is not a racist, he's just really really stupid.
