Skip to comments.Ron Paul Supporter on Obama: "Assassinate N****r and Monkey Children"
Posted on 12/20/2011 1:02:05 AM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Jules Manson, a former candidate for Carson, Calif. city council and an ardent Ron Paul supporter, has been caught calling for President Obama's assassination-- or, as he puts it: "Assassinate the f***ing n****r and his monkey children."
In a Facebook post Sunday, Manson, a prominent Libertarian and supposed "Tea Party darling," posted the inflammatory comments in a rant entitled "The Constitution has been signed away," referencing President Obama's signing of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).
Obama as Hitler, Ron Paul as God
Manson, a Libertarian who frequently posts on Ron Paul's web site and Facebook page, has several controversial sites to his name.
One site to which he's affiliated, RedPillLiberty, depicts President Obama's face superimposed on Adolf Hitler's body, mustache and all, and features Manson's rants against the Federal Reserve, a common target of Ron Paul and his supporters.
In one post on Ron Paul's Facebook page, Jules Manson had this to say: "I may be atheist but Ron Paul is my god."
Manson: "Assassinate the f***n n****r.'
On Dec. 18, however, Manson took his love of Paul and his hatred of Obama several steps too far.
In a heated series of comments on an article he posted about the NDAA, Manson dedicated the piece to "Shane Jones, who still believes in that monkey [Barack Obama]."
Several comments down, as friends responded to the "destruction of our constitutional republic," Manson posted once more.
"Assassinate the f***n n****r and his monkey children," Manson wrote.
Fury Over Racist Rant
In the hours following his inflammatory, racially charged remarks, Facebook users flooded the social networking site with furious comments.
"I sure hope the Secret Service and FBI get this creep, he is dangerous to everyone!" one user wrote. "We can thank the Republicans for this brand of extremism."
"'And his monkey children' smfh. That part bothers me the most," said another. "The best way to stick it to idiots like this is vote to re elect Obama and then Warren in 2016."
At first, Manson tried to defend his statement. Two hours after the offensive post, according to The Examiner, he made another bizarre statement claiming his use of the N-word wasn't racist. That comment has since been removed, as well as the original exchange.
Jules Manson's online presence has been further scrubbed from the Internet with every hour that passes, likely by both Manson himself and Ron Paul and Tea Party supporters horrified by his racist comments.
Several posts by Manson on Ron Paul's Facebook page have been removed, as well as several posts on other web sites.
But Facebook users were too quick for Jules Manson, and his racist rant was captured in a screen cap by several users before they posted it across the online community (see screencap here).
Ron Paul and Racism: Uncomfortable Associations
This is not the first time Ron Paul supporter have been tied to racism or racist comments about President Obama.
In 2007, Ron Paul posed for a photo op with Don Black, a former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard and founder of white supremacist site Stormfront. That same Stormfront site has donated several hundreds of dollars to the Ron Paul campaign, which his staff has accepted.
Ron Paul himself also came under fire recently when several newsletters from the 1980s and 1990s emerged that seemed to contain racially volatile comments. In one instance, Ron Paul allegedly wrote that Martin Luther King Jr. Day should be re-named "Hate Whitey Day."
Paul has vehemently denied writing the newsletters, but the GOP presidential hopeful remains an open supporter of the John Birch Society, according to News One.
JBS still opposes the Civil Rights legislation of the 1960s and "boasts" former members Revilo P. Oilver (the founder), Tom Metzger and Kevin Storm, all prominent white supremacists.
Oliver even went on to found the White Nationalist Neo-Nazi Alliance, which called Hitler "the greatest man of our era."
Calling Ron Paul Racist 'Just Off the Wall'
Yet for all the controversy that should rightfully follow Jules Manson's racist comments, the man himself has never been directly associated with Ron Paul, a fact that some commenters are forgetting.
Some have taken to calling Manson a "Tea Party darling" or "Tea Party favorite," despite him being almost completely unknown outside certain blogs and within the Carson, Calif. community.
Others are likely to take Manson's racism and use it to assert that Ron Paul himself is racist, despite there being no positive proof.
Jack Cole of The Examiner has been quick to try and counter that possibility, pointing out that Manson has no direct tie to Ron Paul at all: he's simply a rabid supporter looking for some sick moment in the spotlight.
"Lumping together some failed politician from California [who] happens to support Ron Paul and then implying that all Tea Party members, Ron Paul supporters, and Libertarians are racist is just off the wall," Cole wrote.
Ron Paul Still Rising
This is undoubtedly true. Yet as Ron Paul rises higher and higher in the national consciousness, and his poll numbers rise accordingly, this move by Jules Manson could not have come at a worse time.
As the Republican primary race heats up, and certainly after the GOP nomination is secured, whoever runs against President Obama for the 2012 presidential election will have not only their own words and records scrutinized, but that of their supporters.
Jules Manson may be a Ron Paul fan, but his atrociously racist remarks haven't done his favorite candidate any favors. Though it's unlikely to hurt Ron Paul in the Iowa caucuses, such race-baiting is shameful in a politician, even a failed one like Manson. Ron Paul deserves better fans.
Just imagine what fun these Obama plants have with Romney and his religion, if and when he gets the nomination. There is a reason why the Marxist media has been sooooooo silent about Mormonism. They want Romney for a candidate because with his political and religious beliefs, Romney is completely beatable.
I can guarantee that most of this stuff is planted from Obotland.
And yes, they’ll have tons o’ fun with Romney. Like a barrel full o’ monkeys, so to speak.
Palin doesn’t really have this problem, which makes me hope she is reconsidering her position not to run.
I doubt it, of course. But there’s always hope in the early going.
I consider myself part of the Tea Party and no one speaks for me.
The real Tea Party speaks for itself and those who would claim to speak for the Tea party are idiots or dreamers.
The Tea party is a figment of these people’s imagination.
It is in reality a wisp they cannot hold.
It is individuals who are patriots and think for themselves and cannot be spoken for.We will all speak for ourselves come election day.
Aww he just said it wrong. He should have said like Axelrod did.
‘The higher a monkey climbs, the more of his butt you can see.’
Well it’s what Axelrod said of a U.S. Presidential contender within the last couple of weeks....so it must be o.k. to say of Obama, eh?
Concur, and all comments are on target. Bring on the next lie to be exposed 2ndDivisionVet. This lie has been exposed and proved. (imho)
I didn’t realize the only two choices were Milt Romney and Wrong Paul.
Not surprised this stuff was scrubbed but Paul can't hide the fact there are many nutcases, as himself, who follow him. You see them often in the OWS groups.
