Former Texas Congressman Ron Paul has been dogged with allegations of racism for many years, mainly due to offensive incendiary newsletters that were published carrying his name that he denied ever writing.
Now, Paul is in hot water again for a meme that was posted on his official Twitter account containing stereotypes including the infamous 'Happy Merchant' caricature that is classified by leftist groups such as the Anti-Defamation League as being anti-semitic. The meme also contained similar derogatory portrayals of Chinese, African-American and Mexican individuals.
The meme was deleted almost immediately after it was posted on Ron Paul's official Twitter account. It can be seen here:
Paul immediately denied writing the Tweet with an apology of sorts on his Twitter account.
