If you needed further proof that Rand Paul and his John Birch Society-sponsored father are nothing more than anti-government ideologues with secessionist leanings, I have good news for you.
Jack Hunter, the co-author of Rand Paul’s 2011 book and his current social media director, has been exposed as having had a past alter ego named the “Southern Avenger” who was a controversial radio personality known for donning a luchador mask with the Confederate flag on it and making inflammatory remarks about Southern secession and race.
The “Southern Avenger” admitted that he “raise[s] a personal toast every May 10 to celebrate John Wilkes Booth’s birthday,” Booth of course being the man who assassinated Abraham Lincoln.
He also compared Lincoln to Saddam Hussein, and even suggested that, had the two ever met, Lincoln would’ve had a gay relationship with Adolf Hitler.
Adding insult to injury, he has advocated against Hispanic immigration and for white pride, letting his fans know that a “non-white majority America would simply cease to be America.”
Before that, Hunter was a pro-secession activist, acting as chairman in the League of the South which proudly boasts on its website that it “advocates the secession and subsequent independence of the Southern states from this forced union and the formation of a Southern republic.”
Predictably, Hunter has emphatically denied that the League is interested in race, and even went as far as to distance himself from many of his earlier statements, blaming them on the naïveté of youth. “I was a young person, it was a fairly radical group — the same way a person on the left might be attracted in college to some left-wing radical groups.”
Even more interesting, Hunter was the Ron Paul 2012 presidential campaign’s main blogger. Adding fuel to a long-burning fire started by racist newsletters endorsed by Ron Paul many years ago, this is just the latest proof that Ron and Rand Paul are nothing more than racist secessionists that are still reenacting the Civil War inside of their own minds and hoping for a different outcome.
Instead of distancing themselves from paranoid anti-government lunatics, like Hunter, the Pauls seem to embrace them as a habit.
Like the old saying goes, “Show me who your friends are, and I will show you who you are.”
