I'm ready and willing to hear the argument that Ron Paul is a bigot and a nutjob, or whatever else. But maybe someone who wants to make that argument could actually, you know, make that argument. Meanwhile, we have these kinds of bizarre rhetorical curveballs, hosted by a generally smart and sane blogger-journalist:
But does Paul's ideology represent something more sinister — or crazy? I think Neiwert is right to raise these issues and parse Paul's speeches and legislative record. And it's not the first time issues like this have been raised over an affable, principled, fringe conservative. The late Washington Rep. Jack Metcalf of Whidbey Island shared many of Paul's beliefs regarding the Federal Reserve, the UN, etc. Metcalf once demanded that his state legislative salary be paid in coin because paper money wasn't mentioned in the Constitution. Metcalf was also widely criticized for speaking to groups with racist and extremist agendas, and he had to answer for his father's onetime membership in the pro-fascist Silver Shirts, a group run by a fan of Adolph Hitler.Ron Paul is nuts, because Jack Metcalf's dad was in an organization run by a fascist. Bam! Case closed! A direct line of evidence linking Ron Paul and Adolf Hitler himself!
Elsewhere, we have a report from a Jewish journalist who called Paul's campaign, couldn't get the candidate on the phone...and concludes, calmly and reasonably, that this is clear and final evidence of the fact that Ron Paul will not as a matter of principle speak on the telephone with all Jews.
What the fuck? Have people been taking lessons from Michelle Malkin?
This is the source of my opinion about Ron Paul. I don't get where Jack Metcalf's dad comes into the picture.
Meanwhile, here we have "Obama's Muslim Ties." That are rumored. Fucking assholes.
