Ed Schultz Blasts Ron Paul Over Homophobic Endorsement

NOTE TO READER: sources for all material is linked in the text.

It is no secret presidential hopeful Ron Paul published and profited from a series of racist, antisemitic and homophobic newsletters in the 1990's. His supporters are quick to point out the newsletters were the result of Paul's incompetence in managing a simple publishing enterprise, and that the views do not represent Paul's own.

However in Sasha Baron Cohen's 2009 movie Bruno, Paul is seduced by the openly gay protagonist and yells out "the guy is queerer than the blazes" while retreating from the room. After the incident he claimed his supporters, who claim he preaches non-violence, will be disappointed "I didn't sock the guy."

On December 28, 2011 Ron Paul's campaign issued a press release openly touting an endorsement by the Rev. Phillip Kayser as seen here in this screenshot. It says in part: ""We welcome Rev. Kayser's endorsement and the enlightening statements he makes on how Ron Paul's approach to government is consistent with Christian beliefs." Phillip Kayser is best known for authoring a paper arguing for criminalizing homosexuality and even advocated imposing the death penalty against offenders based on his reading of Biblical law.

While Paul came in last place in the primaries (ending with only 4% of the popular vote in Utah), his supporters have created a tacky propaganda piece that objectifies women, treating them as sex objects, to suggest Paul will win the nomination.
