Yes it’s official. The crazies have come out yet again. As we gear up for a long 2012 presidential election cycle, I’m afraid more stories such as this will be spilling into the light.

Apparently, one of GOP candidate and Texas Congressman Ron Paul’s supporters got a little too passionate over the weekend. Jules Manson, a former candidate for a city council slot in Carson, Ca., a Los Angles suburb, was feeling a little over zealous in his disdain for President Obama. After going on a Facebook rant about the constitution being “sold away,” Manson suggested that to correct what he feels is the government’s intrusion in our constitutional rights assassinations are in order. And specifically he suggested President Obama, whom he called a n-word and a “monkey,” and his “monkey children” should be the first to go.

Manson’s rant may have gone unnoticed had he not been such a high profile supporter of Congressman Ron Paul, who is quickly gaining traction in the GOP primary races. Manson has helped to raise money for Paul and has been an active participant in his online campaign, but since his explosive Facebook rant, Paul’s campaign has been working hard to distance themselves from Manson.

Manson attempted to erase the post and his comments from Facebook, but it was futile. Outraged citizens and news outlets took screen shots of the rants and I’m sure Manson will be under the long microscope of the Secret Service.

While I respect Manson’s right to disagree with President Obama’s policies, personal attacks, racist name calling and targeting President and First Lady Obama’s children is uncalled for. Unfortunately, this is just the beginning in a long and draw out election season.

    …And some people in this country actually thinks that racism is slowly disappearing.

    Cant blame Ron Paul for this nut.

    Took the words right out of my mouth! It’s ALIVE AND WELL!!!

    Another conservative cheerleader and booster who would be the first to tell you (last week) that their movement is not way motivated by racism, while at the same time all of this craziness is bubbling right beneath the surface. Now, this week, he can’t say that anymore after the crazy jumped out of the box.

    But there are plenty more where this guy came from among conservatives.

    C’mon, now, folks. Who among us doesn’t think that half of all hard-core Republicans harbor these same kind of thoughts? And 90% of Tea Party adherents?

  • Diem

    @Pilot -Agreed!! I call the Tea Party the KKK of the new millennium. All conservatives are racist. Point. Blank. Period.

  • Pilot

    Well, I think saying all conservatives are racists is painting with far too broad a brush, Diem. That would be just as ridiculous as saying that all liberals are NOT racist. Or all black people are NOT racist. You and I both know that’s not true, either.

    But…

    It is my intuitive belief that many (not all, probably not even a majority of) Republicans are racists underneath that thin veneer of “belief in meritocracy”. Furthermore, it is also my intuitive belief that MOST (not all, but certainly most) Tea Party members are racists under their even-thinner veneer of “we just want to take this country back for the real Americans” rhetoric.

    How many times have you heard a white person say racism doesn’t exist because we have a black president? I’m always glad whenever stories like these come out, and I often share them with others (particularly co-workers) just to let them know how ridiculous those “racism doesn’t exist anymore” statements are.

    This is sad that the discourse is changed by this one ignorant racist considering Obama just signed away our “privileges” this is so scary. Ron Paul 2012

  • grace

    I read this after reading not one, but two articles on two different sites in which Rihanna was a victim of racism (one, Tweeted by her on an incident in Portugal, and another in which a Dutch magazine referred to her as a “niggerbitch”).Of course we are completely over racism! See the progress we have made!

    If Jules Manson is going to write something that is racist, he should at the very least learn how to spell first…also, never trust anyone with the last name “Manson”- that’s all for now…

  • B

    Not surprised. And I actually think Ron Paul is the only remotely human republican candidate running. This is not a good look for him, though. Not at all. And, I agree with Nikki that it’s sad that this stupid racist rant has steered the discourse away from the fact that the President really did just sign away many of our rights – I’ve been furious about that bill ever since I heard about it weeks ago.

  • binks

    agreed!

  • TheBestAnonEver, Part 2

    I don’t care whether he insults the president or not; he is beyond a nobody. But, he should feel the consequences of the assassination talk. I do have to wonder how horrible a person has to be to advocate assassinating children. I cannot imagine how evil such a person has to be.
