The Sledge came first for Bachmann then it came for Perry then Cain now it’s taking turns between Gingrich and Paul. According to a story by Reuters:
A direct-mail solicitation for Ron Paul’s political and investment newsletters two decades ago warned of a “coming race war in our big cities” and of a “federal-homosexual cover-up” to play down the impact of AIDS.
The eight-page letter, which appears to carry Paul’s signature at the end, also warns that the U.S. government’s redesign of currency to include different colors – a move aimed at thwarting counterfeiters – actually was part of a plot to allow the government to track Americans using the “new money.”
The newsletter dates from over 15 years ago. Although it has Paul’s signature on it his campaign says it didn’t come from him.
We’ve heard this before… most recently with Herman Cain’s “denials” about his past.
So, in the spirit of preparing for the upcoming race war we have an excerpt from the movie In Bruges (one of my favorites) which I thought my readers might find helpful:
Jimmy: There’s gonna be a war, man, I can see it. There’s gonna be a war between the blacks and between the whites. You ain’t even gonna need a uniform no more. This ain’t gonna be a war where you pick your side, man. Your side’s already picked for ya.
Ken: Well I know whose side I’m fighting on. I’m fighting with the blacks. The whites are gonna get their heads kicked in!
Jimmy: You don’t decide this shit, man. Your side’s already picked for ya.
Ray: Who are the half-castes gonna fight with?
Ken: Yeah, who are the half-castes gonna fight with?
Jimmy: With the blacks, man. That’s obvious.
Ray: What about the Pakistanis?
Jimmy: The blacks.
Ray: What about, think of a hard one… What about the Vietnamese?
Jimmy: The blacks!
Ray: We’ll I’m definitely fighting with the blacks if they’ve got the Vietnamese. So, hang on, would all of the white midgets in the world be fighting against all the black midgets in the world?
Ray: That’d make a good film!
Ken: So tell me, Jim, whose side do I fight on in this war you’ve just made up?
Jimmy: I think you should probably weigh up all your options and allow your conscience to decide, Ken.
I think it’s good advice… though perhaps Ron Paul feels differently.
