Huff Post: Ron Paul Ad Defending Candidate Against Racist Charges Released

The super PAC supporting Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) in his presidential campaign released a powerful 2-minute web ad this morning designed to hit back at stories about racist comments in newsletters with Paul's name on them that appeared in the 80's and 90's.

The ad, produced by Revolution PAC, stars James Williams, a black man from Matagorda County, Texas. Williams says that when he took his wife -- who is white -- to the hospital in the early 70's, the hospital staff ignored her.

they have no positives to offer. They have to

rely on mud slinging.

Here come the new attacks of

"Oh but that's like the one black guy they found."

What's that tongue-in-cheek site that makes fun of people calling RP a racist?

It's amazing

that in some peoples attempt to tear down a supposed racist, they end up sounding a lot like....a racist.

The comments are disheartening

It is disheartening that 1) People don't realize this was put out by SuperPAC and 2) That people haven't spent a moment to learn about him and only know about newsletters that have been pushed by MSM.

It is a reminder of how many people are brainwashed and that we have a lot of work to do.

wow, and they call Ron a

wow, and they call Ron a bigot. These comments are just plain rediculous.

If you post anything the is

If you post anything the is FACTUAL and defeats the allegation against Paul, or say anything to show democrats as hypocrites they will not aprove the comment..

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

yup not approved

a few days ago i was posting there quite a bit. When I didn't see my comments approved, I just kept posting similar things, over & over. I checked after an hour, still not approved.

Then I posted a comment that wasn't clear on my position, just a few words and a Youtube video. It was approved within minutes!

I have NEVER gotten a comment

I have NEVER gotten a comment approved on HuffPo

Why did Huff Post run this article?

and then refuse to approve positive comments?

Because they are learning that every time they do a slam piece on Ron Paul all his people jump in to defend him...so by only allowing bad comments, people see the video with only the worst comments, and context, imaginable.

They're using our positive advertising against us now.

Backfired!

After the video an opportunity is offered to support the video through President Paul's Super Pac. I just donated $100! Take that you Huff & Puffers!!!! Instead of a fist in the face let's throw a knock-out donation punch!

Wow, the comments are just

Wow, the comments are just outright idiotic on that website. They are just a word or two away of accusing Ron Paul of delivering their baby back in 1972 just so he can do the newsletter decades later. The amount of delusion there makes my head explode.

HuffPost is as bad as the

HuffPost is as bad as the DailyKos. A real retirement home for liars.

Read the comments there.

Read the comments there. They are some of the most vile and disgusting comments from the left. They are such hypocrites they would defend anything thrown against Obama and call it unfair, but they are the first to use hate to attack opposition.

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

"from the left" please avoid

"from the left"

please avoid turning this into a left-right issue.

Just curious

how would you characterize the commentators at HuffPo?

Embarrassing?

It's time to detonate the Department of Indoctrination.

Well it is.. it is not

Well it is.. it is not independents..

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

Doesn't it seem

when there is a spate of negative comments they seem to all say the same lame thing?

When I see the string of negatives I stop reading. They are so over the top they defy logic.

Hurts my head...
