Thread: Paul Krugman calls Rand Paul racist

    Default Paul Krugman calls Rand Paul racist

    He’s not unusual. There are genuine libertarians out there. But political figures who talk a lot about liberty and freedom invariably turn out to mean the freedom to not pay taxes and discriminate based on race; freedom to hold different ideas and express them, not so much.

    There wasn't really any doubt that Krugman is an idiot, but he is even bad at pretending he isn't.

    This goes in media spin.

    In a perfect world there would be no Krugman, he is perhaps one of the dumbest people to have ever walked the planet. I have two dogs with more sense.

    Krugman is less than an idiot. As Keynesianism becomes more obviously false, he has slipped to political pundit a la Olbermann. He is becoming positively irrelevant.

    Krugman's devolution has been sad to see. He was formerly a rather sharp economist, and I'd dare say perhaps deserving of the Nobel prize he received. To see him go from that to being a petty political troll is rather pathetic.

    Either way, Krugman and his ilk have been more prone to discriminate based on race, in recent times. Rand Paul merely defends Krugman's otherwise unpopular right to do so. You'd think he would be thankful...

    Paul Krugman is a racist and a race-baiter.
    "Foreign aid is taking money from the poor people of a rich country, and giving it to the rich people of a poor country." - Ron Paul
    "Beware the Military-Industrial-Financial-Corporate-Media-Government Complex." - B4L update of General Dwight D. Eisenhower
    "Debt is the drug, Wall St. Banksters are the dealers, and politicians are the addicts." - B4L
    "Totally free immigration? I've never taken that position. I believe in national sovereignty." - Ron Paul

    This kind of distortion and deliberate misunderstanding of Paul's positions makes me cringe.

    The policies that Krugman advocates hurt minorities the most, so I would consider him the racist.

    I wonder when Krugman is taking his comedy act on the road?

    why is it that some of you always brings up the bad things little worms say about Ron and Paul. Who cares what they think.

    Typical left winged spin to what Rand Paul was saying.

    who? I know its important for us to aware of everything. That's why I come here. But I really wish we could ignore the irrelevant issues. We have a super star revolution going on, people like Krugman are old news. Liberal roll their eyes at us like we're "crazy" and "out of tune". I sometimes feel like we need to do the same thing. For some reason, Americans seem to be drawn to smugness.

    I've seen better trolling on this and other internet forums. How the hell does this dude have a nobel prize?
    The main difference between the right and the left is that a right wing politician claims to protect your economic freedom, but does not, whereas a left wing politician claims to protect your social/personal freedom, but does not.

    Lol, point taken. Nobel prize isn't worth shit. Also, check out the comments section. His echo chamber is dumber than he is.

    Would a "racist" support the legalization of drugs, which is responsible for incarcerating about one-fourth of the Black male population? (Not to mention Latino men, Black women and other minorities).

    I don't get where this racist accusation comes from, but it's getting pretty old. R.P. has never uttered an offensive word about any group, be it women, minorities, religious groups or anyone else. At least not that I have heard. Unless he typed and printed those press release flyers up himself, it's null and void. Any one of us could make fake flyers and say they were created by him. (Which is probably exactly what some desperate neo-con or liberal did in a desperate attempt to defame him).

    Paul Krugman is some sort of strange Frankenstein's monster; half liberal pundit, half hard-core Keynesian, who shambles about in face of reason and reality, spouting his inane views to a willing crowd of sheep.

    Also, whenever someone calls Ron Paul racist, I'm simply going to trot out this video:



    And ask them why I should take their word over the head of the NAACP.

    Not making this up, there are people out there who think that by simply being white someone is perpetuating racism; that calling for the extermination of all white people is not racist, because there is no institutional power by which to do so.

    Nutty. Insane. Imbecilic. Take your pick.
