It’s over … the American Avenger has quit, but not before humiliating himself:
Note: Michael Hill said over a week ago here that it is no longer possible to be pro-White, pro-Southern, pro-Christian and a Republican.
“Jack Hunter, the aide to Sen. Rand Paul who made headlines as the former “Southern Avenger” radio host, has left Paul’s office to resume his career as a political pundit, the senator’s communications director confirmed to POLITICO Monday.
Earlier this month, Hunter came under scrutiny for controversial comments he made about President Abraham Lincoln, Southern secession and Spanish-speaking immigrants. …
“I abhor racism and I have never advocated anything other than equal protection under the law for all people,” his statement read.”
He plans to return to punditry to prove he is not a racist. He has also retired the “Southern Avenger” because he has now been “so mischaracterized.”
“Hunter told The Daily Caller News Foundation that he wanted to avoid being a distraction for Paul and to clear his own name, which he argues is now unfairly associated with racism.
A senior Paul aide confirmed Hunter’s departure.
“I’ve long been a conservative, and years ago, a much more politically incorrect (and campy) one,” Hunter said in an email. “But there’s a significant difference between being politically incorrect and racist. I’ve also become far more libertarian over the years, a philosophy that encourages a more tolerant worldview, through the lens of which I now look back on some of my older comments with embarrassment.”
Update: Jack Hunter quit because they continued to follow his paper trail:
“In the days leading up to Hunter’s resignation, the Free Beacon had been reaching out to sources regarding previously unreported radio recordings in which Hunter called Abraham Lincoln “the American Hitler,” joked that he would like to see the president of the NAACP tied to a tree and whipped, and alleged that black and Hispanic advocacy groups are more loyal to their races than to America.”
I think that’s a great idea. It is sad that anyone who approaches the “mainstream” has to tone it down and become so boring.
