I guess you missed the part where he cheered ‘scaring the blazes out of the establishment’ and saying he made good sense?
Clinton was in the doghouse/WhiteHouse in 91, nothing made sense. Not even David Duke, but Edwin Edwards...Hell I would have voted for neone the Republican ticket of Louisiana put forth, unfortunately that was the Dukester. Disaster, Yes..I guess I’m trying to say-Ron Paul’s a Nut, not me.
Not really, but apparently you don't understand the sentence containing the reference to good sense:
"Dukes platform called for tax cuts, no quotas, no affirmative action, no welfare, and no busing. Tonight, we concede the election, he said. But we will never concede our fight for equal rights for all Americans.
To many voters, this seems like just plain good sense. Duke carried baggage from his past, but the voters were willing to overlook that."
The sentence containing the phrase "plain good sense" refers back to the sentence on Duke's platform of tax cuts, no quotas, no affirmative action, no welfare, and no busing. It obviously doesn't refer to Duke himself, or Duke's racist views, characterized as "baggage from his past" which the article indicates those who voted for him were willing to overlook due to their approval of the ideas in his platform.
Do you consider tax cuts racist? Do you think advocating an end to quotas and affirmative action is racist? Do you think Ward Churchill is a racist? Is ending or reducing welfare racist? Do you think Bill Clinton is a racist? Do you think busing is a good idea? Few conservatives would say "yes" to any more than one of those questions.
You obviously don't like Ron Paul, and that is an opinion you are certainly entitled to share. But arguing that some article which states that an endorsement of a platform of ideas like cutting taxes and ending affirmative action quotas is "plain good sense" is evidence of racism plays right into the hand of the most ardent liberal who sees every conservative political idea as racist.
Put more simply, if the Republican party advocated cutting taxes, reducing welfare, and ending affirmative action and quotas, would that make them a racist organization?
