Meanwhile, Donald Trump Jr., who legend has it is possessed by the angry spirit of the ventriloquist who crafted him, claims his dad isn't a racist because he knows a lot of rappers. So yeah, he called African nations "shitholes" and Mexicans rapists, and steals babies from asylum seekers and shit, but dude took a picture with Snoop Dogg. So who's the racist now?
"Some Evil Racist Must Have Secretly Posted These Things Under My Name!"
The best way to get away with something in life is to not be the person who actually did it. But if you did do it -- with "it" being, oh, I don't know, insanely racist stuff -- the next best option is to claim you were framed. And the frame-up was done so expertly that they left no evidence behind. Devious!
Ron Paul, who spends most of his time delivering promises of small government to the good little libertarians at Christmas, has a weird history of having to explain why he's not racist, despite the racist things with his name on them. This year, he tweeted a cultural Marxism cartoon that featured racist caricatures -- like, full-on Nazi propaganda bullshit. But hey, no harm done because it was posted inadvertently by a staffer! Oh, those staffers! They're always such obscenely xenophobic scamps.
It's like back in the '80s and '90s, when "staffers" produced numerous newsletters, all with Paul's name in the title, that featured statements like "I think we can safely assume that 95 percent of the black males in [DC] are semi-criminal or entirely criminal." Those slippery little rascals!
Meanwhile, there was one politician in Ontario who leapt clumsily past apologizing for calling someone on Facebook a "fucking raghead" and landed on "I was hacked." Don Cardy said someone hacked his computer one night when he was asleep and made that post. And then, when he discovered it, he destroyed his computer, as one does. People looked into his history and found previous racist posts and shit, but those must have been from hackers too. Those bastards were playing the long game.
Those same shitty hackers hit up politicians in Texas and Georgia as well. The former mayor of Bellmead, Texas dropped the dime on the hackers who apparently made over a half-dozen racist posts in 13 months on his Facebook page. Meanwhile, an Augusta commissioner-elect had a similar history of Facebook racism via awful cartoons and racial slurs, and dropped it squarely in the lap of mystery hackers. Imagine how insidious the hackers of the world are to keep targeting small-town politicians to wage months-long campaigns of inserting racist posts at random times and doing literally nothing else. It's scary, is what it is.
