A newly released ad by a Ron Paul ‘supporter’ is garnering much negative attention.
The video shows Jon Huntsman speaking Chinese, dressed up as Mao, and a host of other negative and illogical things.
The uploader of the video is ‘NHLiberty4Paul,’ but I truly do question whether or not they are actually a Paul supporter. The video was uploaded on January 4th and has 29 likes to 1,090 despite a flood of Paul supporters demanding it be taken down in the comment section. Campaign Chairman Jesse Benton has also come out and stated, “The video is disgusting. Whoever put it up should remove it immediately.” However, the video still remains up.
I have serious doubts this video is the work of a Ron Paul supporter. Why would they leave it up despite such a negative reaction? Why is the actual video so illogical and racially charged? Why is it this person has only uploaded this one video? Why ignore Paul’s camp when they asked for this video to be taken down? What exactly would the purpose of the video if it is actually the work of a Ron Paul supporter? The video was quickly linked to Huntsman’s webpage, and within a few hours had Huntsman’s daughters talking about it throughout the media.
I would find it very believable and likely this act is intended to smear Paul and shed a bad light on his supporters (whom are often mocked and labelled as ‘Paulbots’ on social media). This video also has a high probability of being the direct work of Jon Huntsman’s camp.
There remain questions concerning this video, and I will update if I come across anything.
Update: the video has been uploaded again. This time on the account ‘NH4Santorum.’ This, imo, makes it even more clear this isn’t the work of a Paul supporter. The link for the channel is ‘http://www.youtube.com/user/NH4Santorum‘.
Another profile has uploaded the video, this time under a Mitt Romney username.
This event has become an obvious fraud.
