Dr. Ron Paul To The Rescue - Compassion

This is outstanding.  Campaign ad produced by Revolution PAC that should put to rest the ridiculous assertions that Dr. Paul is racist in any way, shape or form.

Ron Paul will try and stop this madness too....................


Darwin,

Why are so many people sick?

The United States leads the world in cancers, Alzheimer's, autism,
falling fertility rates, and other illnesses, even over countries
with much greater pollution concerns than our own.

So what's causing it?

"The Great Culling" is a new documentary coming out soon, and it
examine the causes of the current pandemic of cancers, neurological
diseases, and other disorders.

Check out their official 'Air' trailer...

If you yanks want change - and some of us brits are behind you - then you need to get off the fucking internet and get out there spreading the word. Activate for fuck's sake - it won't happen without YOU doing something about it.

"Campaign ad produced by Revolution PAC that should put to rest the ridiculous assertions that Dr. Paul is racist in any way, shape or form."

So the horribly racist newsletters in Dr. Paul's name never happened? I believe your logic is faulty here. (To be clear, there are plenty of good reasons one might support Ron Paul, but the racist, homophobic, crackpot crazy newsletters did exist. They were in Paul's name, and he's not explained himself well when questioned about them. This video does not somehow...er...whitewash history.)

One more thing. The word "compassion" in this instance bothers me. Here's a good explanation of why:

http://articles.latimes.com/2004/may/13/opinion/oe-weschler13

"So, hmmm: Compassion. What could that mean? What might that involve, thematically speaking? Click the tab, and there you are on the Compassion page.

Nice big picture of Bush merrily shooting the breeze with two black teenage girls. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and you'll find a quadrant labeled Compassion Photos, with the invitation, "Click here for the Compassion Photo Album." Do so.

And let's see, what have we got? First one up: short-sleeved Bush, holding a black kid in his arms, a bleacher full of black kids behind him, and he's merrily waving to the crowd. Click "next." And it's Bush at a Waco Habitat for Humanity building site, his arm draped around a black woman, his other hand tapping the shoulder of another of the black construction volunteers. Next: Bush waving to the Urban League. Next: Bush working a crowd, a black -- or maybe, in this case, South Indian -- kid prominently featured in the foreground, gazing on in amazement. Bush in an African thatch-roofed schoolroom.

It's incredible: The guy is so compassionate. His wife too: She doesn't seem to have any trouble reading to a bunch of kindergartners of color.

And now, there he is again, reading to a different roomful of black schoolchildren. It's amazing -- photo after photo, 19 in all, and almost every single one of them giving further testimony to the astonishing capaciousness of the guy's Compassion, by which we are given to understand: He just has no trouble at all touching black people! Hammering with them, bagging groceries, tottering alongside them on weirdly high stools."

I don't agree that Paul has been evasive about the newsletters. I've seen several clips where he gave satisfactory answers. I think it's absurd to imply that he's racist based on a few sentences from thousands of pages of newsletters that he has said he did not write.

His press secretary Gary Howard (an african american) probably wouldn't be working for a racist candidate.

"His press secretary Gary Howard (an african american) probably wouldn't be working for a racist candidate."

Ah, but this is dodging the question. The newsletters which appeared under Ron Paul's name are, at times, incredibly racist (and homophobic and downright batshit crazee). At some level all assertions of racism (and otherwise) are subjective, but no one would object to me identifying the (many) pertinent passages as racist, no? After touting the newsletters back in 1995 his story has shifted over time and he now claims he doesn't know who wrote them. That's some pretty weak tea on its face and that he hasn't, to my knowledge, attempted to find out (or even pretended to find out) the identity of his very own ghostwriter is quite damning (the "can't manage a newsletter, can't manage a nuclear arsenal" argument).

Claiming that he has a Black Friend is treading dangerously close to Stephen Colbert's side of the street. But at least the very brilliant Colbert is parody. I'm not saying "Those newsletters are racist, so that makes Ron Paul a racist, " rather, I'm countering your claim that because he has a Black Friend, it "should put to rest the ridiculous assertions that Dr. Paul is racist in any way, shape or form." I'm saying that because those mysteriously authored newsletters are (at times) racist, it is not ridiculous to assert that Dr. Paul is racist in any way, shape, or form. Those racist newsletters in his name would be some way, shape, or form, no? (This is the "I'm not saying you're racist, I'm saying what you said is racist" case, which is analogous to my son, who is not bad, but does bad shit all the time.)

Unqualified fealty to any political candidate leads to some pretty cacophonous cognitive dissonance, I would think. As noted earlier, there are many, many good reasons to support Ron Paul (especially considering his competition and the current state of the Republican Party), but those awful newsletters existed in his name. And that's a problem. Pretending this is not a problem is also a problem.

And as noted above, labeling this video as "compassion" is lame.

TNC has been excellent on this topic, I think. A sampling:

"I want to make a quick point--supporting a political candidate is a compromise. I think about Barack Obama supporting gay marriage while running as a state legislator, and then opposing it a president and then claiming his views are "evolving" and my skin crawls a bit. I feel the same about drone attacks that slaughter 16-year old kids, and Eric Holder's position on state level marijuana laws. I have said as much repeatedly."

"Ron Paul dose not see color, he sees American People."

You do realize that this is one of Stephen Colbert's stock catch phrases, right?
Furthermore, you do realize that he gets big laughs from this line because he's portraying a character who is a cartoonish, right-wing buffoon, right?
Just wanted to make sure.
