Paultards Hate Huntsman for Knowing Chinese, Adopting Foreigners

The New Hampshire contingent of Paultards is stooping to core-of-the-earth lows today with a new ad featuring Napster-era audio quality, proof alone that the ad was definitely not made by Paul’s official moneybags campaign, but the freaks on the fringe of the fringe, who are still learning how to use a computer. In the ad, these cinematic visionaries show candidate Huntsman speaking in Mandarin and ask, “American values? Or Chinese?” and then insult Huntsman’s Indian- and Chinese-born adopted daughters. Oh boy.

“The Manchurian Candidate: What’s he hiding?” ask the tools, who call themselves NHLiberty4Paul, then show some flickering photos, one of Huntsman speaking with his Chinese daughter at his side, another showing Huntsman sporting a bindi in honor of his Indian daughter’s Hindu roots. “China Jon’s Daughters: Even Adopted?” the ad then asks, which only makes partial sense. But these guys are busy! No time for full sentences.

This is certainly a breath of putrid air considering how actual Paul and Huntsman have been treating each other the past few days: someone in the Paul campaign joked on Twitter during the Iowa caucus that they had found Huntsman’s “one Iowa voter, he’s in Linn precinct 5 you might want to call him and say thanks,” but Paul and then Huntsman acknowledged that this was an Attempt at Humor and Huntsman basically expressed relief that someone had made a joke for once and included him in it.

    In the next exciting Ron Paul attack ad, Thad McCotter is lambasted for once failing to pay a parking ticket.

    1. memzilla

      Hey now! It's really hard to use Windows Movie Maker when the sleeves of your hooded robe keep getting in the way.

    2. JustPixelz

      I thought McCotter dropped out. He was probably worried the parking ticket story would get out. Or wanted to spend more time with his family.

  2. nounverb911

    At least Huntsman will be able to communicate with our Chinese overlords when they foreclose on the country next year.

      1. FlownOver

        OK, Liz, but…

        Speaking as an expert, would you say it's time for Republicans to crack open each others' skulls and feast on the goo inside?

    1. chicken_thief

      The "highly respected John Birch Society" as a teatard acquaintance of mine referred to them as.

    1. Barb

      Elvis! I just realized something that only you and I could appreciate. Swear to God, Huntsman is dead ringer for my husband! They are both mantastic!

    1. Negropolis

      I love that. You know, how the media just totally skips over the built-in racism in American libertarianism. lol

      1. neiltheblaze

        They totally skip over the built-in racism of the Republican Party too – so they've got practice!

  3. memzilla

    So the new campaign technique, if you can't get the sweet sweet SuperPAC munniez, is to get the knuckle-dragging teatard contingent to post conspiracy-whispering Intertubez videos and hope they go viral.

    Hey 'tarders, they only thing viral about you is the raging infection of hate you're trying to spread.

  4. pinkocommi

    The attack ads are such a compliment. Who thinks that anyone is considering voting for Hunstman at all?

    1. Fukui_SanYesOta

      I couldn't decide whether they were merely being racist or being both racist AND having a go at Huntsman for having the intellectual gall to learn another language.

      1. Rotundo_

        Racist? Yes. Anti intellectual? Yes. Idiotic? Yes. The morons that produced this probably have a great difficulty being coherent in english.

    2. Beowoof

      Well I think there may have been some warning that there was some racism in Paul supporters. I heard about it in a news letter from of all people, Ron Paul.

  5. Antispandex

    Malcolm X once said something about chickens, and coming home to roost…can't remember the whole thing. Anyway, if the conservatards are getting out the long knives, this should get really ugly, really fast! Now, where did I leave that popcorn?

  6. Clancy_Pants

    How dare a diplomat speak the language of his assigned country. This won't happen in Ron Paul's America (or Rick's (Perry and Santorum) or Michelle's or Newt's, Mitt… not so sure)

      1. RavenRant

        I believe "cheese eating surrender monkey" is the official right wing slur for the French and their shameless apologists.

          1. Negropolis

            It was an ironic construction and Simpsons reference made popular during the run-up to the invasion of Iraq

        1. Chichikovovich

          It would even be a bit clever, except that they totally stole it from Groundskeeper Willie.

    1. Chichikovovich

      It sure as hell didn't happen in Ronald Reagan's America, I'll tell you that.

      [Really – Bush II was even worse than Reagan in almost every respect, but Reagan's ambassadorial appointments set a standard of incompetence and absence of basic skills that will never be equalled.]

    2. GOPCrusher

      Yeah. I would think that speaking in the native language of the country you are an Ambassador to, would kind of be, I don't know, helpful?
      But then we are talking about people that think that everyone understands American, as long as you speak slowly and loudly.

  7. Chichikovovich

    Dogwhistle! No Republican (or anyone else, for that matter) cares about Huntsman. And compared to the fact that he worked for the Obama administration, even Satan worship would be a minor problem. This is just reminding people that Romney is on video speaking Fr.. Fr.. Fre…
    Ah, it's so bad I can't even say it.

  8. EatsBabyDingos

    If you ring the doorbell at the Huntsman residence, it goes "CHING CHONG, Avon Cawring!

    1. wondering where i am

      The eyebrows are pretty unbridled for sure. When is he going to bridle those suckers?

  9. CapeClod

    I'm beginning to see evidence that many Ron Paul supporters are your garden variety racist morons.

    1. SorosBot

      But they'll still get very indignant if you suggest he might be racist because Paul says he didn't write or even read his newsletters and we should totally believe that he had no idea what was in there even though he said he wrote them at the time.

      1. LetUsBray

        I think garden variety in the sense that, unlike your traditional white-sheet wearing cross-burners, they also like their weed.

  10. Pragmatist2

    Hold it! A Mormon who embraced a Hindu? Is this actually Mitt Romney and Nikki Haley's love child?

  11. edgydrifter

    These are the same folks who think that since the Bible was written in english (duh! ever found one in a Motel 6 that wasn't?) anyone who speaks a foreign tongue is probably some type of anti-christian terrorist.

    1. Chichikovovich

      Well, some will admit that Jesus spoke a foreign language. But that's just because it was a gift of the holy spirit, as described in the Acts of the Apostles, just like the speaking in Angelic tongues what happens every Thursday at Prayer and Rejoicing Night at the Full Gospel New Testament Christian Pentacostal Assembly.

      1. DerrickWildcat

        I know right. I am pretty sure you have to be a level 20 Kung-Fu expert to be an ambassador in China. His, "Daughters" are really assassins that can run up walls and fly.

    1. chicken_thief

      My cousin's butcher's aunt's personal trainer swears he saw Huntsman do that Bwuce a'Wee "hands in the hot coals" bullshit. And Jon didn't even bat a fucking eye.

      1. user-of-owls

        We need a motherfuckin' face off between Huntsman and George Washington. See who fuckin' kicks who apart, man.

        1. Chichikovovich

          John Huntsman doesn't tell Chuck Norris jokes. Chuck Norris tells John Huntsman jokes. And shoots a nervous glance over his shoulder before he does.

      2. Steverino247

        "What's the trick?" asked someone at the party.

        "The trick is not mind…HOLY SHIT THAT HURTS!!!"

  12. actor212

    I can almost imagine the first summit between Hu and Huntsman

    "Ah, Plesident Runtsman! How nice to see you again! Got my thlee triyun dorrar?"

    1. Chichikovovich

      "Meet my assistant, the Craw." (Gestures at scary looking man with large claw)

      "The Craw?"

      "No, not the Craw, the Craw!"

  13. SayItWithWookies

    For real now — is this ad by Paul supporters attacking Huntsman, or by Karl Rove attacking Ron Paul? I hope it's the second, only because a Paul-Huntsman feud would be such small potatoes.

  14. FakaktaSouth

    "China Jon’s Daughters: Even Adopted?!"

    Are they trying to say he was humping a bunch of Chinese or Indian ladies and getting them babies that'a way? Also, China Jon? Like Union Jack? Wait no, like Minnesota Fats? Yellow Fever? Awesome Bill from Dawsonville? Damn I can't think of one. ANYWAY He's China Jon right? Maybe I don't get it.

  15. prommie

    So you're saying this is the fringe of the fringe of the fringe of the lunatic fringe? Which is the same, isn't it, as saying "Ron Paul Supporter?"

  16. DaRooster

    "Yeah… speakin' all Chinee… better stick to yer own! How dare you lern another language and ejumicate yerself… waddar ya… Stupid er sumpin'"?

    1. Rotundo_

      And the only thing I would have added at the end is the phrase "Although it's been said many times, many ways…" and then the big finish. But that was just magnficent

    1. SorosBot

      Why don't they just repeatedly fight each other so that they get multiple concussions which cut their careers short and lead them to an early grave?

  18. rickmaci

    Is anyone really suprised by this. It's nothing other than a manifestation of the vile racism that has been directed at the president and his family for three years through the TeaTardliKKKlan operation. My grandfather used to say, "if you sleep with dogs expect to get fleas." Huntsman and the TeatardliKKKlan's continue to sleep with these rabid, racist, ignorant beasts. Let them deal with their fleas.

  19. Lionel[redacted]Esq

    Now, now. These people have a point. After all, the Magna Carta wasn't written in Chinese, was it? Hell, it probably doesn't even mention the Chinese at all.

  20. BaldarTFlagass

    They should have got Shaquille O'Neal to get on camera and pretend to speak Chinese to Huntsman, like he did when Yao Ming came into the NBA.
    "Tell Jon Huntsman, Ching chong-yang-wah-ah-soh"

  21. Polythene_Pam

    "China Jon’s Daughters: Even Adopted?”

    I think that's a secret message encoded in anagram, but I can't quite figure it out…

    Ron chained seven jade goats up? No, that's not it, I'd still have an 'h' and a 'd' leftover.

  22. Lionel[redacted]Esq

    The big question for the Republican Party remains: How do we keep these racist crazies in our party? I mean, besides the 'baggers.

  23. widestanceshakedown

    And why did he adopt foreign when there are plenty of American uteri needing jobs? Outsourcer!

  24. Fukui_SanYesOta

    I just watched this again. It says "American values? Or Chinese?" – I'm not sure I get this. Perhaps this is code for "he's not a Christian", because normally when wingtards go on about values they're usually trying to regulate those icky girl bits or whatever for Jeebus.

    Then it struck me: this is an Asperger's Paul supporter idea of an attack ad. No Paul supporter gives a fuck about values; they're sociopathic and/or mentally damaged nuts. Then it made sense.

  25. DahBoner

    Jon Huntsman knows how the Chinese name their children. They drop the silverware on the floor!

  26. BlueStateLibel

    The Paultards should put out a similar video for Romney – obviously since Romney "worked" as a "missionary" in France to avoid the Vietnam draft = Romeny has FRENCH values! This is so easy.

  27. Generation[redacted]

    Can you really trust someone who has visited other countries? – NHRefudiate4Palin

  28. BaldarTFlagass

    I don't understand this picking on Huntsman, by the Paul people. It's kinda like the guys from the chess club ganging up on the kid with cerebral palsy.

  29. voice945

    I am a Ron Paul supporter (or a "Paultard" as many of you like to call us) and I am just as sickened with that video as everyone else. I know many other Paul supporters and I can easily say that none of us would support a video like this. Please don't let some fringe idiots skew your opinions; most of us are good-natured people who just want to live and let live.

    I am going to try and get a hold of this NHLiberty4Paul group and tell them to please stop.

  30. proudgrampa

    Jesus Fucking Christ on a pogo stick.

    That is one of the most disgusting displays of racism I have ever seen. Paultards should be ashamed of themselves.

  31. voice945

    I am a Ron Paul supporter (or a "Paultard" as many of you like to call us) and I am just as sickened with that video as everyone else. I know many other Paul supporters and I can easily say that none of us would support a video like this. Please don't let some fringe idiots skew your opinions

  32. Toomush_Infer

    Yeah, and what about that name – Hunts Man…. is that some terrist Asian/Hindu symbolism…? Not like a good Christian name like Ron Paul, with Ron for Reagan and a second first name, Paul, right out the goddam bible fer crissakes….

  33. MosesInvests

    If the official title of your campaign manager is "Imperial Wizard"-yoooou might be a racist.

  34. MissTaken

    Per the all-knowing Wikipedia:
    Huntsman attended Highland High School in Salt Lake City but dropped out before graduating to pursue his passion as a keyboard player in the rock band Wizard

    I would think the Paultards would find this nugget appealing, that and the access to all sorts of hot Asian girlie action. Guess not.

  35. Naked_Bunny

    An amazing amount of vitriol from supporters of one unelectable presidential candidate for another, even more unelectable, presidential candidate.

  36. rambone

    The only way Huntsman can avoid losing the crucial teabagger vote is to claim that they were just cheap, sub-minimum wage, child labor for his tech-support/sneaker factory.

  37. ttommyunger

    "Paultards Hate Huntsman for Knowing Chinese, Adopting Foreigners…" and that whole "sense-talking" thingy.

  38. June_Cleaver2.0

    The Republicans need a generation of time out. They need to go sit in a corner for 25 years, and not come out until America tells them to.

  39. Negropolis

    But, remember, Ron Paul's supporters totally aren't racist or xenophobic. Alls they want is a government so small that they can either drown it in a bathtub and/or a government so small that it can't tell them to be nice to (insert minority group).

    I laughed so hard when Rachel featured this. It is so over-the-top that you think it's something from Funny or Die.

  40. DeLand_DeLakes

    GAH. I can't hold it in any longer: I think John Huntsman's kinda hot. Especially when he speaks Mandarin.

    The fact that he will never, ever get elected makes these feelings ok, right? Right?

  41. snackypants

    That video had the quality of a Chinese-street-vendor-bootleg DVD of a still-in-theaters American movie.

  42. Attila_T_Hun

    That annoying clicking sound must have been Dr. Paul's false teeth
    snapping shut each time he grimaced with evil pleasure.

  43. michael098762001

    Paul said Friday in an interview set to air on CNN's "John King, USA" he disavowed the ad, but that he couldn't control the actions of every one of his supporters.

    "Of course I disavow him and he shouldn't do it, because you have one out of how many, a couple hundred thousand, five hundred thousand, I don't know how many people we have, because one does that, to bring that up just doesn't sound like a fair thing to do," Paul said. "Of course I denounce it, I couldn't even hear it, haven't looked at it, but people do that, and they do it in all campaigns."

    Paul continued, "So obviously I just disavow him and try to go on and do the thing I'm supposed to do." http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2012/01/06/p

  44. fuckthis12

    with all due respect, did it never occur to you folks that creating this video would be both extremely easy, and a great way to make people hate ron paul (more than they already do…)?

  45. orofthepress

    A poorly produced video posted on a new Youtube account. It had views in the single digits. Why would Huntsman make such a big deal of this? Why would he try to oppress anothers freedom of speech? Why didn't he do some basic fact checking? He and his daughters owe Ron Paul an apology. So does Cindy McCain.

    More of my opnions on this dumb propaganda: http://orofthepress.wordpress.com/2012/01/07/jon-

  46. Ursulablue

    Saw this link on another website. As the mother of a daughter from India I was so glad to see people going after this. Then I saw the title. My daughter also has an intellectual disability, and your use of paultards is hurtful and rude. See http://www.r- word.com
