U.S. Senator Rand Paul employs neo-Confederate Jack Hunter as his media director

For a while there the Republican Party leaders weren't associating with neo-Confederates. After Trent Lott's involvement with the Council of Conservative Citizens came to light and it turned out that much of the Republican Party leadership had interviewed in Southern Partisan magazine, the Republicans largely avoided the neo-Confederates.

However, it seems that U.S. Senator Rand Paul employs neo-Confederate Jack Hunter as his media director.

It is all over in the media.

The story first appeared in the conservative Washington Free Beacon and you can read the story at this link:


It is reported on in the media at these links:



Jack Hunter, aka Southern Avenger, comments about John Wilkes Booth and the assassination of Lincoln have gotten considerable commentary.

More amusing is this article, "Rand Paul can't understand why black voters don't vote GOP, here is a clue."


The article points out that the GOP and Rand Paul is not going to seem a very appealing choice when they are involved with neo-Confederate racists like Jack Hunter.

Like most neo-Confederates who are caught out, Hunter talks about how his views have changed. When these things come to light we get some excuse like, "Well that was 15 minutes ago, my views have changed."

The good thing about this, besides the fact that Rand Paul will likely dump Jack Hunter, is that all the other Republicans will be making sure they aren't hiring neo-Confederates or end up some how associated with neo-Confederates.

What may be acceptable in South Carolina may not be so acceptable in the rest of the country.

Another good thing is that an arrogant rodent is going to get his.
