I know that sounds like quite a statement, but it’s, uh, the straight dope.
Chris Hightower is the campaign spokesperson for Rand Paul. The same campaign spokesperson who made an ass of himself a few weeks ago by commenting that a video comparing Trey Grayson to Adolf Hitler was “too funny“, making national press.
Needless to say, it was an embarrassment for the campaign. But “embarrassing” can be a relative term. It wasn’t, for example, anything like this:
Commander is a Metal band from Bowling Green that hung up their guitars a couple years ago. They thrashed out to songs about the Devil, liked pictures of skeletons with blood dripping from their fangs, and had very serious faces. Here are the boys, with said faces.
Here is Chris at work on stage, screaming about the Dark Lord’s mighty powers.
As for the lyrics, er, poetry of Chris Hightower, there’s not enough space here to truly give it the analysis it deserves. Here’s just a little snippet of it below, next to a scary skeleton drooling blood.
But there are some things I would hold against people.
Let’s take a gander at Chris’s MySpace page, which for reasons unknown is still public.
Well. That’s… interesting. Most people I know wouldn’t have friends that say stupid racist shit like that, let alone leave comments like that up on their page for an entire year. Perhaps, as Chris is known to say, he thinks this comment was “too funny :)”?
But maybe this was just a one time mistake, and we all should forgive him.
Oh wait, here’s one of his MySpace blogs. Perhaps not.
So, does this finally reveal to us why all those white supremacists across the country are so gung ho for Rand Paul 2010? Perhaps? Maybe somebody should ask the campaign. I figure the best person to contact is their spokesperson. Oh, wait! Coinkeedinks!
As for the rest of Chris’s MySpace poetry/prose/deep thoughts, nothing really interests/offends me. Despite the weird Satan obsession, we do agree on a couple of things.
Now, as for the deeply social conservative KY Republican voters who are choosing their Senate nominee in May? Well, there are a few things they may take issue with.
For example, his Christian outreach:
Anyway, let me just sum up my thoughts on this whole savage affair. First of all, if Rand Paul has any libertarian integrity at all, he will back up his campaign spokesman about all the Satan/Christian/ScarySkeleton/Chomsky stuff. Even though Johnson and Grayson will try to use this against him, he should stand firm behind his Bowling Green buddy and say he’s free to have his own religious beliefs. Now, when it comes to the “N Day” and “KKK hoodie” stuff… well, thats a different story. Mr. Hightower has some questions to answer about that, and if they aren’t sufficient, well, there’s only one way to go down that road, imo.
Unless the Paul campaign is trying to further strengthen their already strong white supremacist support. In that case, maybe Chris will get a raise.
As for my final thoughts, I’ll once again repeat what I’ve been saying for many months now:
Stock up on popcorn Kentucky, because we have the most entertaining Senate race in the country.
And I leave you with the only thing I can…
Chris was logged in to his account 30 minutes ago, as you can see here:
What he did do is delete his blog post on wearing the KKK hoodie. As you can see above, this was posted on October 19th, 2006. It is now missing:
It just keeps coming. Jake just found a YouTube video of Chris Hightower denouncing Southern Baptists and DEFENDING POLYGAMY. This is Kentucky, mind you. A Kentucky REPUBLICAN primary.
It’s 12:18, Rand Paul. Are you still employing Chris Hightower?
Surprise, surprise. Hightower made the video private.
Oh, but Jake kept a copy.
Well, at long last, he’s finally deleted his entire MySpace profile. I guess somebody’s not proud of his racist gargabe anymore, eh?
It’s 1:01, Rand Paul. Are you still employing Chris Hightower?
Oh, and Chris? I made a screenshot of every page, so it’s not like this actually solves any of this for you. You know that, right? Or are bigoted minds like yours not able to grasp difficult concepts like this?
And at 6:30 PM, he “resigns”
