Paultards Digg a Bigger Hole For Themselves

So the Paultards have shown us their latest attempt at posting internet humor: "Proof of Ron Paul's Racism! ROCK SOLID EVIDENCE!" It's apparently an entire page dedicated to every minority who has has ever been photographed next to Ron Paul, as if to say, "Hey, Ron Paul isn't racist, libertarians don't see color. And just to prove it, here's him standing next to someone, who's black."


It's roughly equivalent to finding a photo of Scott Peterson where he isn't murdering someone, and then writing a link entitled, "Proof of Scott Peterson's murder! ROCK SOLID EVIDENCE, lol!" That's not funny. That's not even offensive. That's just stupid. But, like DaronWestbrooke has demonstrated to us, that doesn't matter. The goal isn't to come up with a solid argument, the goal is to come up with an argument that you can repeat often enough so that the thought will eventually become reality.

The real problem with this attempt at humor is that there's no punchline. The only thing that it proves is that the creators are completely clueless on matters of race. Sorry, but you can't undo decades worth of overt racism with a few snapshots. It doesn't work like that. Frankly, it trivializes the entire civil rights movements.
That websites a joke right? If not I have to say I'm sort of appalled and EMBARRASSED by what I'm reading here. You make a WEBSITE dedicated to the fact that you happen to have black friends? Let me ask you this, if you think that having black friends is novelty enough that you'd make a corny poorly designed website dedicated to it.... you're singling out black people as somehow being different enough that it's strange for whites to befriend them. That as far as I'm concerned is a form of racism. By the way, the pictures that you've plastered all over your site are ridiculous. Unless this is in fact a joke site, I feel that you've basically eliminated all your credibility.

If you want someone who pulls off the same joke correctly, check blackpeopleloveus.com. See, this type of website is funny when Johnny and Sally do it, because they realize that the entire argument is a joke. One of the mock testimonials describe what the Paulards are going for pretty accurately: "Sally has a habit of showing me her running tally of the number of black people she greets everyday. I feel unique and special to be part of her statistical list."

This reminds me of that Seinfeld episode where George tries to prove he isn't racist by pretending to be friends with that black exterminator.

In unrelated news, Ron Paul has announced that his running mate will be Michael Richards.

A little brain exercise for Paultards to work through

Hm... there are pictures of him standing next to black people, therefore he's not racist? Seems I've heard that before....
