Presidential candidate Ron Paul became furious at questions posed by a CNN reporter and walked off the show. Gloria Borger asked him about a newsletter he published several years ago under the title: “Ron Paul’s Political Report” which contained vicious anti African American articles. The newsletter published articles which made the following comments:
“Order was only restored in Los Angeles when it came time for black people to collect their welfare checks.”
“We are constantly told that it is evil to be afraid of black men, only it is hardly irrational” to have such feelings.”
Ron told Borger he was sick and tired of being pestered by the media over what was written in the newsletter. He pointed out that while he published the newsletter, he did not write the articles. I guess that is a point. He supposedly made a million bucks from the newsletter, but why should he be held responsible for what is published in HIS newsletter?
