Jon Huntsman’s presidential campaign released another video targeting rival Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) on New Years Eve.

The video is modeled on the science-fiction series The Twilight Zone and attempts to portray Paul as a kook who believes in conspiracy theories. The video shows clips of the Texas congressman talking about the secret society of the Skull and Bones, and discussing New World Order conspiracies.

In one clip, Paul says that the civil war was “senseless,” and that the northern states should have bought southern slaves and released them instead of going to war. In another, he says that U.S. foreign policy led to the 9/11 terror attacks.

Paul has given multiple interviews to conspiracy theorist and radio host Alex Jones.

The ad concludes with slides that state, “Tune in next week for more of The Ron Paul Chronicles.”

A video released by the Huntsman campaign last week branded Paul as “unelectable” because of racist, hate-filled newsletters that were published under his name about 20 years ago.
