Tea Bagging Racist Ron Paul Announces Run For 2012 Presidency

Ron Paul and his sane supporters.

How appropriate that wacky Republican Ron Paul would announce his candidacy for the 2012 presidency on Friday the 13th. This unlucky day might doom his own campaign while simultaneously bringing bad luck to the other Republican candidates who will lose primary votes to the pied-piper of Tea Party lunatics. Ron Paul is just the type of conservative wild-card that the Democrats were hoping for. He adds to the potential GOP cadre of crackpots like Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann and Donald Trump, yet he also has the ability to garner enough primary votes to vanquish the chances of some of the more viable Republican candidates. Ron Paul might just be Barack Obama’s best secret weapon.

If you need evidence of Ron Paul’s craziness, consider these tidbits:

-  He is known as “Dr. No” because of his insistence that he will “never vote for legislation unless the proposed measure is expressly authorized by the Constitution;

- He advocates withdrawal from the United Nations, and from the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO);

- He opposes birthright citizenship;

- He advocates for the elimination of the Federal Reserve;

- He would deny women their right of freedom of choice in birth; and

- He believes that the civil Rights act of 1964 is unconstitutional.

Now let’s take a look at some of Ron Paul’s quotes as published in his newsletters:

- “Boy, it sure burns me to have a national holiday for that pro-communist philanderer Martin Luther King. I voted against this outrage time and time again as a Congressman. What an infamy that Ronald Reagan approved it! We can thank him for our annual Hate Whitey Day.”;

- “even in my little town of Lake Jackson, Texas, I’ve urged everyone in my family to know how to use a gun in self defense. For the animals are coming.”;

- “opinion polls consistently show only about 5% of blacks have sensible political opinions”;

- “if you have ever been robbed by a black teen-aged male, you know how unbelievably fleet-footed they can be.”; and

- “hip-hop thing to do among the urban youth who play unsuspecting whites like pianos.” (referring to the crime of carjacking);

In an attempt to deflect criticism regarding these quotes Paul said the documents were authored by ghostwriters, and that while he did not author the challenged passages, he bore “some moral responsibility” for their publication. Gee, do ya think?

Has Ron Paul said anything interesting of late you ask? FoxNews.com reports that in a radio interview Tuesday, Paul said that the U.S. government could have worked with Pakistan to secure Usama bin Laden’s capture instead of unilaterally entering the country and killing him — despite concerns that the Pakistanis could have tipped him off.  Paul said,

“It was absolutely not necessary. What if he had been in a hotel in London? So would we have sent the … helicopters into London because they were afraid the information would get out? No, you don’t want to do that.”

So let’s get this straight. Ron Paul believes that the Pakistani government (which has a history of non-cooperation and outright misleading of the US government) would have been just as cooperative as our longtime ally the British government in apprehending Osama bin Laden. Things that make you say, “Hmm?” Indeed, that wacky statement even raised the hackles of some of his cultishly loyal Tea Baggers. Tea Party Nation founder Judson Phillips said on his website,

“If there is any doubt that Ron Paul should not even get near the Oval Office, even on a tour of the White House, he has just revealed it. For a Congressman to say the raid to kill the man who is one of the greatest mass murderers of Americans in history was, ‘not necessary,’ is simply nuts.”

Luckily (for us progressives), inasmuch as most members of the Tea Party read the news about as frequently as Sarah Palin (see Katie Couric interview), they will not know about Paul’s statement or Tea Party Nation’s comment thereon. Consequently, they will still support Paul in large numbers. All in all, Ron Paul’s inclusion in the “Koch Bros. and Flying Republican Nomination Circus” is sure to be entertaining fun for the whole family.

TEA BAGGING MEN

(sung to the Billy Joel song “Piano Man”)

It’s nine o’clock on a Saturday
Rand Paul comes marching in
A proud member of the Tea Party
Like so many white racist men

He says, “Boy you know that I’m from Kentucky
And I think that Obama blows
It was sad and back-street how he chastised BP
Just because their damn oil rigs explode”

La la la, di da da
La la, di di da da dum

Sing us a song you Tea-Bagging men
Sing us a song tonight
Give us some patriotic imagery
Tri-corn hats and a wig that’s too tight

Now Sarah Palin is no friend of mine
Thank God she’s not the VP
Yes she looked like a dope every time she misspoke
As McCain claimed she was “mavericky”

She says, “Why does the press keep on grilling me?”
As her smile runs away from her face
“Can’t they see I’m a tabloid-bred superstar,
Though I quit my job in disgrace?”

Oh, la la la, di da da
La la, di da da da dum

Ron Paul is a right-wing apologist
He is anti-gay and pro-life
Grasp of history’s hazy and he’s moon-bat crazy
Ron Paul should be confined for life

And Scott Walker’s union-busting politics
Sparked a recall to get him de-throned
While Mike Huckabee thinks his “down-hominess”
Will coax liberals to leave him alone

Sing us a song you Tea-Bagging men
Sing us a song tonight
Give us some patriotic imagery
Tri-corn hats and a wig that’s too tight

Had a pretty big crowd just last Saturday
With the Tea Baggers dressed in high style
They were at a rally with signs misspelled badly
To express ignorance all the while

And the town common, it looks like a carnival
With the Tea Baggers from far and near
They unload from their cars lots of feathers and tar
As they fan flames of hatred and fear!

Oh, la la la, di da da
La la, di da da da dum

Sing us your song you Tea Bagging men
Sing us your song tonight
Cuz we’re all in the mood for a melody
Sung by folks that are old, dumb and white

(fade into extinction)

  1. Billy Joel’s one of my favorites, great job on the song.. ‘they were at a rally with signs mispelled badly’ I’ll have that in my head all day now! Ron’s son Rand is even crazier – he’s comparing universal health care to slavery:

    ~ Ron might be a bit of a racist (he’s from Texas) but there’s something to be said for keeping the racism “in-house”. We could certainly do with less religious anti-muslim war mongering. What’s more libertarian and ‘small government’ than allowing Jesus to return when he’s good and ready?
    ~ Ron’s economic prescriptions might be fanciful (willfully childish) but Republicans haven’t exactly been competent custodians of the economy either, although we do appreciate Greenspan’s sniveling admission that mistakes were made!

  3. This country has gone so haywire, I’m researching where to move. Brain drain USA.

  4. Hey how about the Tom Coburn and John Ensign presidential ticket, it represents what the GOP is, rather than what they profess to be. But I guess it would be like the Newt Gingrich and Donald Trump presidential ticket, right?

  5. George Washington

    Constitutionally, legislatively, and morally, Ron Paul has no equal. His 22 year voting record speaks for itself. The World is watching. Ron Paul for President in 2012.

    Thank You

    • Face it, Paul is a crazy racist that will never be accepted by American society, let alone be elected President. He does however, inject some lighthearted lunacy in the GOP primaries so I hope he sticks around for awhile.

      • The argument that Paul is a racist is simply NOT TRUE. It’s sad that you have to rely on an inaccuracy to defend your dislike of Paul.

        Anyone reading this, please watch the video about and decide for yourself! Don’t fall for these inaccurate claims.

  6. “He is known as “Dr. No” because of his insistence that he will “never vote for legislation unless the proposed measure is expressly authorized by the Constitution;” -Yes. The 10th Amendment reserves the passing of legislation to the individual states if it isn’t defined int he Constitution. It isn’t the Federal Gov’t’s job.

    “He advocates withdrawal from the United Nations, and from the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO);” -Yes, these entities are not in our country’s or our people’s best interest. We are supposed to be a sovereign nation and a constitutional republic. http://www.ronpaul.com/2009-09-22/free-trade-with-all-entangling-alliances-with-none/

    “- He opposes birthright citizenship;” So do I. This doesn’t happen in any other country, why ours? http://www.lewrockwell.com/paul/paul346.html Our immigration proccess needs serious reform. I can’t move to any other country and become a citizen unless I am contributing to the economy and the nation’s community as a whole (I’ve seriously looked at Australia, NZ and Switzerland.) How is it that our country is bereft of similar policies? I won’t answer my own rhetorical questions because you probably wouldn’t like it.

    “- He advocates for the elimination of the Federal Reserve;” So do I! The PRIVATE Federal Reserve bank is unconstitutional and is the largest ponzi scheme of the modern age and has stolen billions of taxpayer money. Don’t get me started on the IRS.

    “- He would deny women their right of freedom of choice in birth;” He is ‘pro-life’ if that is what you are getting at. He said, “I am strongly pro-life. I think one of the most disastrous rulings of this century was Roe versus Wade. I do believe in the slippery slope theory. I believe that if people are careless and casual about life at the beginning of life, we will be careless and casual about life at the end. Abortion leads to euthanasia. I believe that.” As a Taoist I completely relate. The problem with women’s “birth rights” is more about women’s birth “responsibility.” There needs to be a level of personal accountability. I do believe there is a problem with an abstinence-only sex education, but that is a philosophical debate involving the level of intrusion on family privacy. In my opinion, I was an accident, my mom had me when she was 17. Am I glad I wasn’t aborted! There are couples who aren’t able to have children that are happy to adopt.

    “- He believes that the civil Rights act of 1964 is unconstitutional.” It is. http://www.lewrockwell.com/paul/paul188.html And let’s be real, racial segregation is a sociopsychological problem that absolutely CANNOT be fixed by drawing up legislation. People raised in a racist culture that believe that it is ok will continue to be racist until they have an actual change of heart. You cannot pass laws in the hopes of changing the way people think. In any case, what he is against is the violation of property-rights. In a free market society, stores should be allowed to say “whites only” or “blacks only” if they want, but seriously, who is going to do that unless you live in the ozarks? And who on earth would give such businesses money besides other racists? We’ve come a long way in the last 50 years, I don’t really think that this piece of legislation was the main reason.

    There are so so so many different nationalities of US Citizens who support Ron Paul. Ron Paul is against the drug war and has publicly blamed it for law enforcement’s racial discrimination against blacks. He is for removing government out of marriage so homosexuals can marry. Nothing he has said in real life matches anything that is of concern in these newsletters.

    BTW, they dropped all charges against Osama bin Laden. That pretty much means we killed an innocent man, right? He was never indicted with any crime having any relation to 911, but that’s another story (especially since he’s been dead for years and the CIA has been faking tapes of him http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0JwRe5i_VDQ — we invaded Pakistani territory and carried out an assassination without consent of the local government. How comfortable would you be if N. Korea or China was running black-ops in America without our permission or co-operation?

    I will vote for Ron Paul for real change, not a third Bush-term like we got with Obama.

    • His “Vote No” stance does nothing but create legislative gridlock and he looks like a fool while doing so.

      To think that the United Nations (a group dedicated to worldwide cooperation and ultimate peace) and NATO (a group dedicated to sharing resources for mutual defense) are not in our people’s or nation’s best interest makes Paul look like an out of touch Dr. Evil.

      You might be interested to know that 33 of the world’s 194 countries grant birthright citizenship even to children born of illegal immigrants.

      Forget about your argument that the Fed must go. It is a constitutional entity because because (1) the U.S. Constitution (Article I, Section 8) explicitly gives Congress the power over money and the regulation of its value and (2) this responsibility was delegated by Congress to the Federal Reserve; the Federal Reserve was created by an act of Congress. Since Congress has power over the nation’s monetary policy, it requires a mechanism by which to exercise that power. We need for instance, a national currency and control of the money supply and interest rares. There is not a working free market on earth without such controls in place.

      A woman’s right to choose regarding reproduction is a constitutionally protected right to privacy and is the law of our nation. If Paul chooses to impede that that right, then he would deny women their right of freedom of choice and privacy with regard to birth. Remember, a right to choose is just that. It does not require a single choice as does a pro-life stance. With a right to choice, a woman can choose to have the child or not. Most utilize that right to have the child.

      If you think the Civil Rights Act of 1964 is unconstitutional you are crazy. U.S. citizens are entitled to equal protections under the law and if you think the Jim Crow laws satisfied that requirement, then there is no reasoning with you. I suggest you ask a black person if they think they were more equal before or after the the Civil Rights Act of 1964. How many politicians were black before the act? How many black CEOs were there before the Act?

      It is common practice to drop charges against a person if he dies prior to prosecution. Are you suggesting that Osama bin Laden was innocent and shouldn’t have been dealt with? If so, I am certain that you are in a very small minority. That very same, very small minority that sees any credibility in a Ron Paul presidential campaign.

      As for the Obama administration being a third term of the Bush administration, I ask you to consider whether Bush would have signed the new Health Care Law or the Financial Regulatory Law or would have established the Consumer Protection Bureau. Not so much.

  7. *The quotes you listed are not Ron Paul quotes.* It has already been confirmed that those newsletters were not actually written by Paul. Rather than simply listing things he supports that you believe to be bad, why not give an explanation? You are simply jumping on what I assume are simply typical liberal stances and not giving any thought or reason to back up what you are saying.

    I ask that anyone who reads this go do your own research as to what Paul really believes and WHY and do NOT trust that the things you have read here are accurate. THEY ARE NOT.

    • Those quotes all appeared in Ron Paul’s newsletters and although he tried to deflect his endorsement of the views, he subsequently accepted responsibility for them. In 2001 Paul gave his own account of the newsletters, stating the documents were authored by ghostwriters, and that while he did not author the challenged passages, he bore “some moral responsibility” for their publication. There you have it. Words from Paul’s own mouth.

  8. Wow. The author of this article at least uniformed and quite possibly retarded.
