Ron Paul Says His Racist, Anti-Semitic Tweet Was ‘Inadvertently’ Posted by a ‘Staff Member’

It seems as though Ron Paul will need to get with the times if he doesn’t want racist memes posted on his behalf.

On Monday afternoon, Paul explained that a picture posted on his Twitter account accompanied by an article on “cultural Marxism,” was posted “inadvertently” by one of his staff members, not him.

Paul is a libertarian sweetheart who has run for president twice and is a frequent guest on the conspiracy mill InfoWars.

“I do not make my own social media posts and when I discovered the mistake it was immediately deleted,” Paul tweeted, followed by his name, so we know this is the real him.

Odd that a cartoon that has caricatured figures of minorities yelling “Cultural Marxism!” would inadvertently be posted with a Facebook post of Paul’s on cultural Marxism. Inadvertently.

Could it be that that staff member is getting inadvertently fired today?
