Cuccinelli Touts Endorsement by Racist, Anti-Semitic Nut Who Says Social Security Unconstitutional


Add a racist and anti-Semite who believes Social Security is unconstitutional to the list of Ken Cuccinelli supporters (along with right-wing hate radio host Mark Levin, government shutdown architect Ted Cruz, corrupt/far-right-wing South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, the Duggars freak show, and raging Islamophobe Mike Huckabee. Why do I say these things about Ron Paul? Because, uh, they’re facts? Check it out:

*Ron Paul to be keynote speaker at anti-Semitic conference

*10 Most Shocking Ideas in the New Ron Paul Newsletters (e.g., “The newsletters, both the Ron Paul Survival Report and the Ron Paul Political Report, defend eugenics advocate Jared Taylor and former Cincinnati Reds owner Marge Schott, infamous for calling her team’s players ‘million dollar n—-s,’ saying ‘sneaky goddam Jews are all alike’ and ‘only fruits wear earrings,’ and praising Hitler’s role in Germany.”)

*Paul’s also a rabid homophobe, as these quotes make clear (e.g., “A 1993 Survival Report denounces accusations against the Branch Davidian religious sect’s leader David Koresh for molesting a young girl, writing, ‘How dare the Clinton administration talk about sexual deviance? Its officials could have had their own float in the Gay, Lesbian and Bisexual Parade.'”)

*Paul believes Social Security is unconstitutional and a “giant Ponzi scheme.” Paul’s fought for years to phase it out.

*Paul advocates nonviolent tax resistance.

*Paul rejects the core American principle of separation of church and state.

*Ron Paul casts lot with extremists, conspiracy theorists (“The advisory board of the outspoken libertarian’s new organization is stacked with members of the far right”)

*Paul is a conspiracy theorist on a wide range of subjects. For instance, he erroneously claimed that “a secret conspiracy composed of the Security and Prosperity Partnership and a cabal of foreign companies is behind plans to build a NAFTA Superhighway as the first step toward creating a North American Union.”

*Paul also claimed that there are “25,000 individuals that have used offices of powers” (including in Congress) who “believe in one world government” and have plans to undermine national “sovereignty” and set up a “dictatorship.”

*His newsletter wrote reams of bigoted stuff like, “If you have ever been robbed by a black teenaged male, you know how unbelievably fleet-footed they can be;” that “gays ‘enjoy the attention and pity that comes with being sick,’ referring to AIDS;” and “The criminals who terrorized our cities – in riots and on every non-riot day – are not exclusively young black males, but they largely are.” And no, it’s “implausible” that Paul could allow “so many derogatory statements…into his publications, [while] insisting he knew nothing about them.”

Anyway, this is just a small sampling of the bigotry, extremism, and lunacy spewing from Ron Paul. Believe me, there is TONS more where that came from (just use “teh Google” and see for yourself). Now, Ken Cuccinelli says he’s “thrilled” to have Paul’s support. Does that mean Cuccinelli is “thrilled” with Paul’s extremist positions on pretty much every issue over the years? If not, which issues does Cuccinelli disagree with Paul on exactly? Inquiring minds want to know!

UPDATE: Paul argued this past Thursday that the government “shutdown is not a real problem… As far as default goes, we’re always going to pay the interest. That’s just a fake argument.”

  • From the DPVA:

    Cuccinelli Helped Star Find Their Lawyer for Tobacco Commission; Did Cuccinelli Talk to Any Commission Members About Star?

    Today’s Washington Post story detailed the help that Star Scientific believed it was receiving from Virginia government officials including possible assistance being provided to get money from the Tobacco Commission.

    Unmentioned was the fact that the person who helped Star find their lawyer to seek Tobacco Commission money was Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli. Virginians should wonder what contact Cuccinelli had with Tobacco Commission members over the last four years and whether Cuccinelli mentioned Star to the members.

    “Star Scientific apparently believed that their Cuccinelli-suggested lawyer was helping them make progress in seeking government money from the Tobacco Commission,” said DPVA spokesmen Brian Coy. “Cuccinelli took thousands in gifts from Star, bought stock in the company after vacationing at the CEO’s lakeside mansion and then helped the company find a lawyer to get government assistance.

    “Cuccinelli immediately needs to tell Virginians about the conversations he had with Star CEO Jonnie Williams about the Tobacco Commission and any contact he had with members of the Commission that related to Star,” said Coy.

    In the coming days Democrats will be submitting Freedom of Information Requests seeking records regarding what assistance Cuccinelli may have given his benefactor Williams as he sought cash from the Tobacco Commission.

    I have no love for Ron Paul, but I’ve never heard him endorse those idiotic 9/11 conspiracy theories.   I am aware he has certainly pandered to the twoofer idiots (to call them “truthers” implies they actually seek the truth, which they don’t) and allowed he’d be open to a “new investigation” of 9/11 (which would be stupid and pointless) but I’ve never heard him endorse any of the conspiratioids crackpot claims.   So on this one narrow point, I think you are being unfair to Paul.
